another project for Noel Mignon kit club

Hello, it's Thursday and that means I have a new Noel Mignon project to share with y'all!

I actually have two to share but will keep you in suspense on the other one, ha ha.

This was created using the February Noel Mignon Daily Diary kit, Happy Together.

The kit definitely has a very Valentines-y vibe but it's versatile and can be used for everyday projects as well. In this case I used it for a page of my oldest daughter during one of my kids' many shows they've put on for me and my husband over the years. ☺

I used some pocket page cards and lots of heart stickers and chipboard. 

I think my favorite part of the page is the paper strip border I made from patterned paper and bits of washi tape. 

Have a fantastic day!

happy colors and my sweet girls


It's been a whirlwind of activity around here lately and while I've been scrapping some I hadn't gotten to post anything here.

I do have a new page that I put together just for fun using the Simple Stories Carpe Diem collection. I really love the bright, happy colors in this collection and the sweet icons like the cute little cat.

I used the SN@P! Pack for a lot of the embellishments on this page, including the cut out kitty and the colorful hearts. The "hello" is from the Love & Adore collection. I like the black and white photo paired with the bold hues of Carpe Diem. 

I did  use some miscellaneous washi tapes (love the gold with the bright colors!) but the rest is from Simple Stories. 

Thanks for stopping by!

hanging out with aliens


For my project this week I have a fun layout to share featuring product from Pretty Little Studio in the February kit, Happy Together, from Noel Mignon.

This page documents a trip through Roswell, New Mexico on our way to Ruidoso for a gymnastics meet back in November. 

Here are some detail shots: 

Have a fantastic rest of your week!

Fun news to share!

Ok, so I mentioned that I had some fun news to share with you.

Well, that news is that I am back designing for the Noel Mignon kit club!

I love Noel's kits and jumped at the chance to be able to design for her again.

This month I received the "Happy Together" Daily Diary kit and while I tend to do more traditional layouts and other projects than pocket page spreads, I was thrilled to receive this kit after seeing what was going to be included. I'll be sharing my projects created with this kit throughout the month here and at the Noel Mignon blog.

The first project that I created was this layout featuring the Simple Stories Love & Adore collection:

You can read all about how I put this page together at Noel Mignon. 

Have a wonderful day!

these kids and Simple Stories

Life with four kids can be a little crazy sometimes, a lot crazy other times.

I am, however, grateful for these girls that I have been blessed to have call me mom.

They fill my life with love and laughter, challenges that will hopefully help me to be better, and with so much fun and happiness.

This layout was created using a mix of product from Simple Stories:

As you can see, I love to layer, love to mix textures and love, love, love to use spray mist. I also kinda ♥ that pretty gold tape on this page. 

What do you like to do on all of your projects? 

I have some other projects that I will be sharing soon, and a fun surprise announcement. 

Have a wonderful day!

favorites of 2016

Hello again!

I hope that you had a very merry Christmas and wonderful day surrounded by loved ones.

Our day was filled with so much fun- stockings in the morning followed by a Christmas church service where my oldest got to play a piano solo, then we came home to make crepes, one of my favorite Christmas Day family traditions. After that we loaded up gifts and headed with those and all of the crepe fixings to go to my mother-in-law's house where we played and ate and opened gifts and played and visited some more.

We are enjoying the time at home to relax and not have to be anywhere except for gymnastics for my two oldest. It is great to have some down time.

Before the end of the year craziness I wanted to share some of my favorite layouts from 2016.

It wasn't a full year of scrapping since I had to drop my teams for family obligations (we are homeschooling now and the kids are busy with their activities and I have lots to do at home) but I hope to make a change with that in 2017.

Here are some of my favorites:

I hope that it's been a beautiful year for you and wish you the best in the coming year.

Yes, I know that I have been gone for a while...

Truth be told, I am really missing scrapbooking lately.

Life has become busy with homeschooling 4 kids this year, their activities (gymnastics x 3 kids, piano, violin) and all of the back and forth involved with that.

Now we are in full-swing Christmas prep and I have seen so many cute Christmas layouts and holiday planners and lots from the new releases and I have become a little sad about not scrapping at all for a while.

So...if anyone out there still looks at my blog at all, I am going to start scrapping again.

I know it won't be much to start off with but after Christmas I have a goal of doing a couple of projects.

I did a few pages that I never posted back a month or so ago.

Is anyone still out there?

summer fun with the Happy Days kit

Today I have another new layout to share with the Noel Mignon Happy Days Classic Kit:

I cut a long triangular strip of cardstock to use as a template to cut the pieces of patterned paper.

I added lots of Amy Tangerine rub ons and rubber embellishments. 

I also added this cute journaling spot and wooden heart. 

Yeah, I went a little crazy with the rub-ons on this page but they are so super smooth and fun to use. 

I added a few enamel dots here and there as well. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 

Do you like what you've seen lately? 

Is there something you'd like to challenge me to do? 

I'm up for the challenge. 

It's my birthday today...

Leave your feedback in the comments, por favor ☺

It's been pretty quiet around here the last little while.
