Happy Together - CTMH Brushed Collection

It's been hot, and that's reminded me to continue scrapbooking our cruise photos from last year. I had this beautiful collection from Close to My Heart called Brushed. It's a Bring-Back-My-Pack collection so it's only available for a short time. I decided to get scrapping with it and selected a few flowers I had on hand as well as some CTMH acrylic hearts and Julep accessories. I hope you like it. I'll have a process video linked below. You can purchase the collection from my website here until July 31, 2020:

Winning kit! Tiptoe through the tulips!

Hello everyone! It's been a busy month for me, with family illness, and work but I'm so glad to be back here. I've been busy keeping in the craft room as well.

I have so much older stash, collections from many years ago that I kept when we moved, and I needed the motivation to use them. So I put it to my YouTube lovelies and Facebook scrapbook community to vote on which kit to use.

Here's the first layout video using the winning kit. I hope you enjoy it. If you want to see what kits were up for the vote, look for the information box at the beginning of the video to link you to that video first.

Happy scrapping and have a great week!

New layout for Scrap the Boys challenge

Hi everyone. I've been having fun in the craft room and I finished a layout using some lovely items from Creative Embellishments that I won. The gorgeous acrylic mirror stars are the perfect addition to this layout. This month's challenge at Scrap the Boys is a colour challenge/mood board.

So I got to work with an older kit I had from Glitz Design and pulled this together:

I started off with a mixed media background using sprays and inks, as well as roller stamps to give lots of texture. Then I used the papers from the 6X6 pad I had, torn the edges for an edgy vibe, inked them up with distress ink in Faded Jeans, and went to work on placement of the embellishments. I love how it turned out. And the giant pebbles from Glitz Design are perfect too!

I hope you enjoy this layout!
