Layered Tags

I love making layered tags, they are so fun to make and can be used for lots of different projects like a scrapbook layout or a card.

I used the Crate Paper Hello Love collection and layered die cuts and the cute gold hearts to make these.

Valentine's Treat Box and Bags

I love making pretty packages and for Valentine's Day I made some treat bags and boxes for teachers and coaches. For the treat box I recycled an old ribbon box and turned into this yummy treat box.

I added the frame and the decoration from the Crate Paper Hello Love collection.

Filled the box with treats and it was all done.

I also made some cute bags using the same decorations. These are so fast and easy to make.

I just hope I don't eat all the treats before Valentine's Day.

Fringe Hearts

I loved the Maggie Holmes fringe hearts in her new Bloom collection. Here is a picture of them - they are so cute and I can't wait to get them.

 For Linden's Valentines I decided to try and recreate them to use up my stash of Valentine's day paper. 

I cut out the hearts from several different patterned papers, fringed them with my scissors then pieced them together. They don't look as good as hers but I know the girls will love them.

It's Scrapbook Nerd's 3rd birthday and we are celebrating over at Scrapbook Nerd with some fun challenges.  My first challenge is Let them Eat Cake...

Add some fun cake elements to your project like this pretty chipboard cake from an old Maggie Holmes collection by Crate Paper.

Hope you can join us and join in on the birthday celebrations.

My oldest son made his first App from scratch - he's only 15! What?! He is so crazy talented and determined I can't wait to see what else he does in his life. This photo is from a photo shoot he had for our local newspaper which ended up on the front page of our local paper The Optimist.

I made this layout for a challenge on the Scrapbook Nerd Forum. It's a little outside of my comfort zone layout wise but I had fun making it and that's what matters!

I am doing more stash busting here using some old Simple Stories paper, some old Crate Paper letters and American Crafts buttons. 

I hid a photo of the article in the newspaper under the other photo.

Thanks for stopping by.

365 - 2015

I finished my 365 album for 2015, I am pretty happy about that! I had 4 months to do as I had gotten a little behind. I used the Crate Paper Craft Market to do more stash busting.

I loved using this Webster's Pages Color Crush Planner book as the Album and I love how it looks all done - I can't wait to do this years!

Thanks for stopping by.

My Boys

I wanted to try and use up some of my stash this month, with all the new CHA goodies coming out I knew I needed to make room lol.  I really love how this layout turned out. My boys are so different and I wanted to do a little spread about what they are into right now. I used the Crate Paper Craft Market collection, I still love those hop frames!

I ended up using 11 different products on this layout - yay me!

I filled each of the round frames with embellies and words and other fun stuff.

Thanks for stopping by.
