Trio of cards, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey friends!  Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a trio of cards.  When I saw the cut file in this month’s Take Note kit, I thought they would make perfect sentiments for handmade cards.

I was really inspired by Kristina Werner, and tried this watercolor technique.  I love how bold and graphic my cards turned out!

Also, my daughter is 11, and is about to graduate from the 5th grade!!!  How on earth did that happen?!  She is growing up way too fast…I mean look at those pictures!  It still feels like yesterday when her Daddy and I walked her into her kindergarten class on the first day of school.  We love this girl to pieces!  She loves school, loves books, loves food, loves music, and loves her friends and family!  She is a social butterfly, and wears her heart on her sleeve.  She is going to do great things!  #proudmamma

Happy Tuesday y’all!

3 Christmas layouts…playing catch up for iNSD!

Hey friends!  Tomorrow is International Scrapbook Day (iNSD)!  I have a lot of scrappy catching up to do, so I started with some Christmas layouts.  I always like to scrapbook our yearly Christmas cards, and I was 3 years behind.  I find that since I do a December Daily album, I loose steam with my 12×12 December layouts.

I set a little time for myself, pulled out some of my Christmas supplies, mostly from My Mind’s Eye and Pinkfresh Studio, bought a few cut files from theCutShoppe, and went to work.

Working backwards, here is 2016:

I love this intricate cut file from theCutShoppe!  It’s the Stained Glass cut file that I resized.  I used the My Mind’s Eye Sugar Plum collection, and some Pinkfresh Studio ephemera.

Next up is 2015:

I made this layout with My Mind’s Eye’s Comfort & Joy collection.  The Santa is actually a gift tag.  The cute file is from theCutShoppe, and is called the Geo Globe.

Finally, is 2014:

For this layout, I used the My Mind’s Eye Sugar Plum collection, and various papers from my stash.

Do you guys have scrappy catching up to do as well?  I need to catch up on Halloween layouts, and school photo, both individual and class, layouts.  #alwaysplayingcatchup

Happy iNSD!  Check out my Instagram tomorrow.  I will be part of the Scrapbook Circle blog hop; hop along…there will be a giveaway!

Happy Friday y’all!

 

a little farm moo-sic, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hello friends!

Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a Tech Tip layout using the May Take Note kit.

I scrapbooked my daughter’s 1st grade music performance.  The theme was farm “moo-sic,” and the kids were so adorable!  My somewhat shy kid got a solo, and a speaking part too.  We are so proud of her!

100 days of 1st grade, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey friends!  Shoutout to my hubbie on his birthday!  Love you!

Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a layout using the April Our Story kit.  I am absolutely loving the Pinkfresh Studio alpha stickers!!!

Back in February, the first graders at my daughter’s school celebrated 100 days of school by dressing up as if they were 100 years old.  Ellie looked so darn cute!  I wanted to take some pics of her, and she sure isn’t shy in front of the camera, lol.

Grow up, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey guys!  Today I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a layout using the April Our Story kit.

My oldest daughter is growing up so fast, and I wanted to do a layout featuring this quote by E. E. Cummings.  I cut the quote out of navy cardstock on my Silhouette machine (which I am still loving!).  I’ve got a little hidden journaling on this layout; a tag behind the larger photo.

Here’s my beautiful girl:
