Yay! Summer Layout

Recently Close to My Heart posted a beautiful ombre layout using the Fresh Air-Cardmaking Thin Cuts. (If you didn't see it, you need to check out their Instagram posts.  It was absolutely beautiful!)  I was so enamored by this layout, I began to wonder if there were other backgrounds that I could create using these… Continue reading Yay!

Fun Summer Adventure Layout

Do you enjoy using sketches as inspiration for your layouts? I know I do.  Recently a sketch from Scrapbook & Cards Today popped up in my email, and I knew I needed to use it for a layout.  The color choices for this photo may seem odd, but it is for a scrapbook I have begun… Continue reading Fun Summer Adventure Layout

Dog Days of Summer Layout

Now that my kids are grown, most of the photos on my phone are of my sweet little fur baby.  Yes, I am one of "those" dog mom's who spoils her fuzz ball with all kinds of treats and toys.  To be honest, the first time I saw the Central Park Paper Pack, I knew… Continue reading Dog Days of Summer Layout

Thankful Color Dare Card

In the midst of all that is going on, I am truly Thankful that God has blessed me with a home business that allows me to step back, focus on family, and make sure my priorities are in check. This week, in the midst of the madness, I wanted to create a card that expressed how… Continue reading Thankful Color Dare Card

Life is a Beautiful Adventure Layout

Have you seen all of the Central Park paper creations that are appearing on social media lately? I will admit, when I first saw this paper packet, I wasn't too keen on the color combinations.  The Poppy, Lemon, Pacifica, Bashful, Mink, Glacier, and Willow color palette made me feel like I was walking down the… Continue reading Life is a Beautiful Adventure Layout

Using A Big Thank You Thin Cuts

This week,  I am taking a break from the Cricut®. This is partially due to the fact that I cannot get to my machine because of the pile of Convention creations blocking my path, but mostly, it is because I have realized that many of you do not use Design Space™ and I hate the… Continue reading Using A Big Thank You Thin Cuts

July Kit of the Month

Long, lazy afternoons, picnics at the park, a glass of sweet tea, and very little crafting time - that's how most of our summer days are spent.   We take lots of pictures, but have minuscule amount of time to create a way to record those memories.  When my kids were younger, I often turned to… Continue reading July Kit of the Month
