New SCT Sampler layout - What fun!

I said it before on my video unboxing the SCT Sampler for June... I really didn't think I needed Vicki Boutin's Let's Wander collection, until I got the sampler. What fun papers! What fun embellishments! I had so much fun playing with it. I did a layout today and got out my Caran d'Ache watercolour crayons to create a background, and then chopped up one of the papers and did some stitching. Then I fussycut (Yes I said FUSSY CUT!!) the flowers out from one of the papers. This was so much fun to create. I also followed along with a Creative Embellishment challenge for June. Here's their mood board this month:

I loved the vine with cherry blossoms. I didn't have any chipboard for that exactly, but the chipboard that I used, and sprayed with Citron Color Shine spray added just the right touch to the layout I think.

I needed a bright pop of green to match one of the papers, and it did the job! Enjoy some of the closeups.

Scrap the Boys challenge for June - what a fun one!

Hi everyone. I'm here with my take on the mood board for the Scrap the Boys June challenge. Here's the mood board:

And here's my take on it:

I used Color Shine sprays on a black cardstock page to create my own galaxy effect, and threw in some stars made of bark by Prima, just for good measure. Hope you like it!

Relationship Goals and a New Challenge Jar

So glad you could be here with me today. I wanted to share a beautiful layout that I made of my inlaws when we last visited in October. Boy that seems so far away now, and it really is. But the feelings from these photos are just as fresh in my mind as ever. I didn't have the perfect background, and I didn't have the perfect lighting but it was the perfect moment to take these snapshots.

Snapshots. We all have them. Do you scrapbook them or think that they aren't worthy of a page. Because I did. And then I realized that I have boxes of snapshots with no story attached to them, and I needed to document them. So I started here.

If you want to see how I made this page, using the sketch I found at Cookin' Up Creations, then check out the process video below.

And be sure to subscribe to the channel to see how I'm going to be using my new Challenge Jar (which is really just a mug). I explain all about how that will work in this video below, where I create a homemade scrapbook kit.
