another gratitude project

Hello there!

Since Thanksgiving is this week and since our internet was down last week I thought I would share this project that I created for Noel Mignon.

I cut the leaves using a metal die from Lifestyle Crafts. I used the vellum and a variety of patterned papers from our Noel Mignon November kit.

Once I cut out the leaves I glued them in a circle in the center of my paper and then added some chipboard alphas for the wording, some gold glitter glue and some gold rub-ons. I really like the touches of gold with the fall colors. 

I added a ring of twine to the center of the ring to add some softness and then did an outline on the page with the gold glitter glue from American Crafts. 

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.

I am back with Fancy Pants!


Long time to no see, right?

Our home internet was down for a week and a half and it's amazing how tied technology is with scrapbooking. I missed being able to post here and wasn't able to turn in some assignments. It's the little things that get us sometimes.

Because I haven't been able to post I have a few things to share with you that I will post over the next few days. First off, a layout that I made using the Oh Deer! collection from Fancy Pants.

We had a little bit of snow last week and it was just enough to get me in the mood to scrap Christmas pages. The Oh Deer! collection is just the right mix of fun and traditional. I like the bits of blue thrown in with the red and green and the embellishments are adorable!

Have a great weekend!

new for BasicGrey

**Don't forget to check the post below to give feedback on my giveaway post. Anyone who comments there will be entered in the drawing.

Today I have a page to share that I made for BasicGrey using the pretty new Vivienne collection:

The focus was supposed to be on the chipboard alphas so I created this fun title treatment with the chipboard. 

Everything is BasicGrey with the exception of the twine (Target $1 bin) and the gold tape (Pebbles Inc.)

Have a wonderful day!

a BasicGrey share

Happy Saturday!

I love that we have a day to spend at home this week!

Gymnastics meet is pretty much over for my daughter, we don't have a meet today, we don't have to go out of town, we can sleep in (it's barely after 7 and two of my kids are already up), ha ha.

I am excited to get to scrap a little today. I've missed that.

Today I have a BasicGrey page to share. The blog has been down but I wanted to go ahead and share this project with you that I made using the Aurora collection.

We had a Harry Potter party for my Hailey for her 10th birthday, complete with a candy shoppe, sorting ceremony, wand making and a potions class.

This is a really basic page design; I am liking white space more and more these days. I wanted the focus to be on the pictures of Hailey. 

I used some small metal dies to cut the stars (sadly my Cameo machine hasn't been working) from an assortment of patterned papers from Aurora. I mixed in some gold sequins for fun and because I love the extra sparkle. 

Have a fantastic weekend!

What are your plans? 

I think we need a giveaway again soon. What do you think? What would you like to see? 

What would YOU like to win?

using up kits

Do you get kits from a club?

Do you find that you use up the entire kit?

For the layout I am sharing today I used items from the Early Autumn kit from Noel Mignon as well as some bits and pieces I had sitting on my table from recent projects:

The papers and "my smile begins with you" are from the Noel Mignon kit and I added some Pebbles Inc. tape (gold scallop, numbers), a cork "xoxo" and banner shape I'd cut out for something else but didn't use, some stars from a BasicGrey project, some twine, a doily, a gold glitter heart from the new Maggie Holmes line, a cardstock title piece (can't remember where this was from?). The copper-colored tape at the top of the page is from My Mind's Eye.

It is fun to mix and match things!

Have a great day!

catching up with Halloween

I don't know how you are with scrapping holiday and birthday pictures but I tend to do everyday pictures more often than those "event" ones, which is why I am just now scrapping pictures from last Halloween.

Stay tuned next year for pictures from this year, ha ha.

I will try to do better and maybe get them done this year.

For today I have a page to share that I made for Noel Mignon kit club using the Early Autumn kit:

I LOVE the Fancy Pants sequins in this kit and used them to make a fun border on my page.

Have a great day!

I posted some projects before heading out of town and posted the wrong layout!

I hope y'all didn't mind seeing that one twice!

This is the one I meant to post ☺

I made this using the Me-Ology collection from Fancy Pants as well. 

I love the bright colors and funky patterns.

Social Saturday at Fancy Pants

Good morning!

I love the first Saturday of the month because that means it is time for our Social Saturday Round-Up at Fancy Pants!

Our Social Media team has been hard at work creating and sharing lots of fun pics via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, blogs, etc and you can see all of the projects here.

I have a couple more projects to share that I hadn't posted here yet:

Both of these projects were made using the Me-Ology collection. I like that it has a bit of vintage and lots of classic patterns but in bold, funky colors! 

I threw in some sequins from the Oh Deer! collection because I love sequins lately!!

We are off to watch our girl compete in McKinney so have a great weekend!!
