Pretty Little Studio | Cutie Pie

I'm using one of my favorite PLS collections, You & Me Love Story, on the PLS blog today.  Please head over there to see all the details of this layout about my Cutie Pie.

Gossamer Blue | Hugs & Kisses

I've lost count of the number of layouts I've made using the Gossamer Blue February kits ;)

This page was made just because I was in the mood to do some hand-stitching.  Sometimes the mood strikes me and I just get busy.

The Simple Stories paper made the stitching pretty dang easy, I just punched holes along the black geo heart and added white thread.  Bam!  

To embellish I reached for the Simple Stories planner stickers, adding bunches of little stickers here and there.

The last step was adding in the enamel dots, sprinkling them here and there to add to the stickers.


Crate Paper | I Love You More Than Scramble Bamble

Happy Valentine's Day!  I thought I would share a cute little page about Miss Q's love of scrambled eggs!  We call them scramble bamble ;)

I used a super fun file from The Cut Shoppe and my brand new fringe scissors!  Those scissors make me HAPPY!

Feeling fringy,

Maya Road | About Me Wood Pallet

Hi there!  I'm sharing my first-ever wood pallet project over on the Maya Road blog today.  I hope you can click on over to read how it all came together.

There are lots of awesome Maya Road goodies on this little 8x8 pallet, I used embossing powder to alter the color of all the metal embellishments.

Stay beautiful!

Pretty Little Studio | When My Baby Dreams

Clouds and feathers, two of my favorite icons ever.

I've got this dreamy page on the PLS blog today, please click on over to read how this layout came together.

Keep dreamin',

Crate Paper | Oh Darling

 So..... I did some reorganizing of the things...... I am not happy with my storage situation.  I went through almost a year's worth of kits and re-grouped items by manufacturer/collection.  Like items went in the large kit bags so I can keep collections together.  If I only had a few items from one manufacturer but also had a few things that coordinate from another manufacturer, those were bagged together.

I'm feeling some peace about my scrapbook room now.

In this process I discovered this adorable cut file by Ashley Horton, already cut and ready for a layout!  I did some smooshing and put this page together with the Cute Girl collection.

I've also started a traveler's notebook about Miss Q's first year and am using some of this collection in that as well.

Stay cute!

Gossamer Blue | Hi

My sister was in town the other day, and rode along for school drop off.  To say that Miss Q loves her Aunt Honey is quite the understatement.

I added two papers from the Gossamer Blue February kits to create the background, using my machine to stitch them together.

I used lots of tiny stickers from the Planner and Life Pages kits to embellish, mixing them in with items from the Main scrapbook kit.

I love this fresh take on Valentine colors, the addition of that yellow just makes these kits perfect.

I decided to make a 9x12 layout this time; I like this size when I use smaller photos, it seems like they don't get so lost like they might on a 12x12 page.

You're such a sweet thang ;)
