Jillibean Soup - Together




It's time to share another Jillibean Soup project with you! This one uses the Healthy Hello collection which was new for winter 2016 CHA.



I adore the pretty colors in this collection and JUST CANT GET ENOUGH of it! How pretty are these flowers from the floral paper all fussy cut out! A little time intensive but worth it.





and I have mentioned before how fun the Alpha Tiles are - check out this denim like tile with a heart instead of a letter! So clever and cute too.



That is it for me today, short and sweet! Hope all you readers are doing well!  I am short on words these days, I apologize :)

BPC - Patterned Paper Play



I am excited to announce that I have been working on a new class for Big Picture Classes that I hold near and dear to my heart.


Introducing Patterned Paper Play!




Join me for 4 lessons on how to combine patterned paper in easy and fun ways. Dig into that paper stash I know you all have and create some fun and colorful pages using TONS of paper!








In the four lessons, we will talk about paper selection, patterns, creating an ombre design, using those small scraps and more.







I had a lot of fun with this class and I hope you will join me over at Big Picture Classes  - Class starts May 2, 2016!







While you are there, you can also check out my other class called Stitch It that is still available right now!






If you haven't checked out Big Picture Classes yet, what are you waiting for! You can sign up for a 1 month free trial, take whatever classes you like before you commit! A win -win I think :)

Hope to see you in class.

Fancy Pants - Adventure!



Good morning! It is almost the weekend!!! YAY! I love Friday, my favorite day of the week for sure :)

I shared a sneak of this project on the blog a few days ago and now I can share the full page.


I am a lucky girl. I work full time and every now and then I work my second job teaching or working at a Scrapbook and Cards Today Crop & Create event. A month or so ago, I had the opportunity to hang out in Banff and Lake Louise with this talented and fun! group of ladies. A really great day!

Of course, when I got a travel assignment, I used a few of these recent photos right away. I used these arrow cut files from my digital cut file store JustNick in varying papers from the Attwell collection by Fancy Pants! so fun and easy.






I also added in a globe diecut and made some of my own polaroid like frames with cardstock and added some epoxy alphas and labels to the bottom for fun.



A super easy travel themed page! I don't do enough of these :) Already miss these ladies!

Jillibean Soup - Sweet

Hey hey hey!! I just got back from a fun weekend in Moncton, New Brunswick Canada at a Scrapbook and Cards Today event - Crop and Create! I taught a couple different classes and am a wee bit exhausted still ;) Lots of lovely people in one room makes a heart happy.

Today, I am popping in to share a BOY(! yes boy) layout using the Jillibean Soup Mushroom Medley collection. This is a fun woodsy like, but I love the b-sides of the paper for scrapping masculine pages.


I kept this one pretty simple and just cut several random strips of paper and then added in a mega title with the new Alpha Tiles. I love the big impact they make.


I also love these cute new tags and layered one of the journaling cards over top of it, along with some die cuts and wood veneer shapes by Jillibean Soup too.



I hope you like this one, I have barely any pictures of my boys anymore (they are almost all scrapped and won't let me bother them for photos)... so I had to dig deep into the archives for this one! lol

You can find all the supplies over on the post today on the Jillibean Soup blog

Shimelle - Let's talk vellum!








Hello hello! Today's theme over at Shimelle is all about working with vellum. I love using vellum, it adds such a soft feeling to projects and so mixing with baby photos was a perfect combo for me on this page.


I used some yellow vellum in replacement of patterned paper, layered it over other paper and even cut some apart and popped it up, using buttons and glitter hearts to hide my adhesive!






I love how a simple circle of vellum looks layered over this doily with a chipboard piece added to cover the adhesive.


Are you ready to take on this week's challenge and use some vellum from your stash??? Check out all the challenge details at Shimelle.com today and play along.

SCT April freebie



Hello hello! Two posts in two days...I am shocked how about you! :) Lots of good stuff to share over the coming weeks/month, but today I am stopping by to share a FREE cut file over that I created for the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog this month.


Check out this month's freebie:


This one was a lot of fun for me! It's my kind of project. Cutting out all those little bits and fussily adding them to the back of the cut file allows me to add in lots of patterned paper! I love that :)



I used a combination of different Amy Tangerine collections on this one page. I love the color and bold patterns in her collections and they seem to be one of the things I pick up on my own. Here is my completed page:




I am loving the addition of black lately, the foam thickers are the BOMB and had to use it for the title.


That's about it for me! Now, to grab this one for free, head over to the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine blog HERE to get your freebie and check out my guest this month - the talented Audrey Yeager... you will LOVE what she did with this cut file too!
