Summer Crush

I am sure we have all had a summer crush at some time in our life and this summer I am totally crushing on Andrea Bethke. For my second Summer Camp challenge I am challengein you to tell me about your summer crush, who is inspiring you right now.

I took Andrea's One Magical Mini class on Big Picture Classes and fell in love. Like me she loves Disneyland and mini albums. I was inspired to finally get started on my Disneyland Midori. You can see how I made these pages on my video here 

I made a cute shaker pocket for the cover of my first notebook.

I used the Minc foiling technique from the class to make this fun gold castle for the inside page.

Our first stop was a Breakfast with Minnie in the park where we met Minnie and a bunch of other characters.

The food was amazing and I loved the cute Mickey Waffles.

I hope you stop by in a few weeks to see part 2 of my Disney Midori.

Thanks for stopping by.

Friday Inspiration with Joy

This week is another Inspiration Friday with Joy. This month we are taking our inspiration from Ashley Horton a fellow scrapbooker and owner of The Cut Shoppe on Etsy.

I decided to use the free Summer cut file from Scrapbook Nerd for my layout. You can see how it came together on my channel here:

I am using the lovely Maggie Holmes Bloom collection for this layout and I love it.

Layout Tag

I participated in a game of layout tag over at Scrapbook Nerd, I love playing these they are so fun! Here's the video of the process:

I did one of my favorite things for this layout - fussy cutting. I cut all the pretty flowers from an Amy Tangerine patterned paper and layered them in a circle.

Then I added some of the fun rubber embellies in this collection - I really love these.

The photos are from the day we took my youngest son's grad photos so we stopped at some scenic places and took a bunch of photos. I really love how they turned out.

If you want to check out all the layouts and how they changed over the course of the game head on over to

Scrapbook Nerd Summer Camp

It feels so good to be scrapping again, its been so busy these past few months I haven't had time to do anything. I decided to play along with the Scrapbook Nerd Summer Challenge which is a sketch and used the Amy Tangerine Better Together collection.

I had some fun pictures of my youngest using the SnapChat filters and had to scrap them. I try and stay in touch with the stuff the kids use to socialize so I can keep in touch with my boys. SnapChat is a lot of fun!

I added a pocket and some tags to hid my journaling.

Head on over to to play along with the fun summer challenges and games and maybe even win a prize :)

Summer Journal - Midori Stlye

Hi and thanks for dropping in today!

A few weeks ago I ordered a Websters Pages Craft Folio in a sunny yellow with a pineapple on it, I mean how could  I not. The folio came with lots of embellishments too and also a trasvellers notebook. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to turn it into a summer journal.

I added some journaling cards from the Dear Lizzy Happy Place collection on the cover and one of the fun tassels.

On the inside page I added the Summer To Do List from the same collection and added some Dear Lizzy gold letters to the list.

My first layout is from our first visit to the beach and some cute Floaties I bought.

You can see the video on how I set it up here:

Scrapbook Nerd Summer Camp

Hi all, I was missing all the amazing ladies at Scrapbook Nerd so I asked if I could be a guest designer for their 4th annual Summer Camp. For my first challenge "Campfire Songs" I am challenging you to use lyrics on tour layout.

I used this photo of my son's grade 7 class and the song I chose for their year end video from Owl City called Verge. The lyrics are perfect for grad and my favorite line was "out on the verge of the rest of our lives".

I am using the Amy Tangerine Better Together collection from Scrapbook Nerd which is a really fun collection and has some fun journaling tags.

I used them as layers and also made a pocket to add some journaling cards.

I added some cards in the pocket and used the Our Playlist to write the songs that Linden is listening to right now and also used the Good Friends tag to write down his friends and teacher and other details.

Head on over to to play along with some awesome challenges, games and prizes.

Thanks for stopping by.
