Stash Dive #9

Hi y'all,

I'm back with another stash dive layout.  This really turned out better at the end.  The process during was uh...difficult; to say the least.  
I did get a chance to use up through some embellishments, thickers and papers that I have just way too much of. 

And I'm loving being able to get my photos in a collage and printed our on my Canon Selphy! OMG, I was stuck on stupid with that one.  I watched video after video on YouTube, and still couldn't get it to work for me, until finally about a week ago the light bulb came on.  
Or maybe I hit my head and didn't realize it... :)  Anyway, #silverlining, I figured out how to make PicFrame work for me. 

The challenge is still going strong to get through some of my massive stash! :)
Check it out! Enjoy!

Scraptastic August LO#4

Hey there folks,

Below is my final layout with the Scraptastic August Elastic Hearts Kit & Add-on.  I only got 4 layouts out of this kit, but I must be honest that's only because I am hoarding like 5 sheets of paper from the kit that I just couldn't use yet! :)

I know I'm not the only!

All of the fantastic gold was just excitement OVERLOAD, and I couldn't make myself part with them just yet.  I have a couple of fun events coming up at the end of this year, so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to part with them then.

Anywho, this layout was supposed to be clean and simple, but talk about overload, man the gold just got away from me.

Check it out, please leave a comment, I love to hear from y'all.

Like A Sister Card

Hey there folks,

I've been a little MIA on the posts...busy getting the kiddies ready for school!

Check out this card, I've made it for a very good friend of mine, but I wanted to share it also.  I really liked the way everything came out.

This is another great digi from! And the papers are from My Minds Eye Cut & Paste collection.
The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, and the image was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.

Hello Friend Card

Hi there folks,

I'm back again, continuing with the challenge of using my stamp and die sets.  The card I made below actually didn't have a coordinating die set (fuzzy cutting action!), but I thought it was so cute.  I remember jumping to buy it because it was limited edition, and then I never used it! Doh!
Anywho, I used the Feathered Friends stamp set from the 2014 Stamp-tember Simon Says Stamp release.

Check it out!  I've linked to all the products I've used below.

Masculine card w/ Flowers

Hey there folks,

So, life as been busy this week.  I've barely had time to craft at all :(
Funny thing, as with most of people in our crafty world I have succeed in accumulating tons of stuff, but not so success in using all of it.
My sister came by to use some of my dies, and I had a thought, I don't die cut enough! I have a bunch of stamp sets with coordinating dies (almost all of them actually :) but I don't use them.

So I'm challenging myself to really use my stamp and dies sets, and below is the first card from that challenge.  This card is just about all Simon Says Stamp product, I'll link to them all below.

I'm calling this a masculine card because of the color scheme, and I believe mean like flowers too (as long as it's not too many)

Stash Dive #8

Hey there folks!

So it's been like forever and a day since I've scrapbooked using my stash.  I subscribe to Scraptastic Club kit and have been really trying to use the WHOLE kit, so that I'm not adding to my stash...but I'm also not using my stash :)

Anywho, below is a layout I created this morning.  I intended to use my new kit this month, but I couldn't get the colors to flow, so I dived into my stash.

I'm 90% sure the background papers are Basic Grey from a collection pack, and the layering papers are Glitz, Bella Blvd and American Crafts.

The Rub-ons are American Crafts, the acetate stars are from a Simon Says Stamp card kit and the die cuts are Lawn Fawn.

Hope you enjoy, please leave a comment I love hearing from people. Oh and the layout is of my beautiful God-daughter's 1st Birthday!

Subscribe and you won't miss out on any new posts!

Happy Sunday!
