Sorry for not blogging, but this has undeniably been a bleak week and I didn’t feel much like blogging (and I still don’t, but I have too many pages to show so I’d better start posting them! 😉 )..
I had the privilege of playing with a gorgeous collab by the Polka Dot Plum designers, Survivor:
And I made two pages of our sweet, sweet bears – the colors were just perfect!
For this page I also used the gorgeous new templates by Amber of Stolen Moments, at ScrapMatters. I had lots of fun picking all those pretty papers! 😉
And here’s the other bear – I just love the colors of this page!

I have more pages to show, so hopefully I’ll be in the mood for blogging this weekend.. We’ll see!
Amy Sumrall has a new mini kit out at the LilyPad, and it’s a real deal at $1 (today only!!!):
(BTW, they’ve just changed servers/system at TLP and it sometimes isn’t working properly – be patient and try later if you can’t access, but make sure you don’t miss this deal!)
I had fun scrapping this page with it! 🙂
Boy, those weeks were really tough! I’m so glad they’re behind us!
I feel like a juggler this week, trying to find time to work on my hybrid project (has to be ready by Saturday!!), getting pages done for my awesome CTs and spending time with DH (last night, dinner+concert – spectacular!).. But so far, a part from some tiredness, it’s working! 😉
Here’s the last 2 pages I did for challenges at ScrapMatters. This one is for the In Living Color (yes, I do have a thing with leaves and trees recently.. 😉 ):
and this one is for the Roadmap to Scrap:
which follows these instructions:
- Choose 2 photos. Both photos must be repeated on your layout (you can use different crops and sizes)
- For papers you can use as may as you want, but keep the photos and elements as the focus of you page.
- Now add some ellies and lots of them!
- Here is the catch on those element…every element you used must be used 2 times and 2 times only. (so you can use as many buttons, flowers, ribbons etc as you want, but each individual element must be used 2x on the LO)
- Pick out 2 fonts, any fonts you think will compliment the page, can be script, typed, doodly…whatever floats your boat!
- Use the 2 fonts on your layout anyway you want, journal, title, date etc – go crazy! – but only use those 2 fonts.
- Now add in some sparkle and shine. You must have 2 different sparkly things, can be glitter, sequins, gems, etc. Remember you must use each element 2 times on the page, even the sparkly stuff!
- All you need to do now is add some fab shadow work to finish off you page.
Both pages were done in 20 minutes each, the first one during breakfast on Thursday, and the second right before we went out to go to the concert last night… Gosh! I really have to slow down! 😉

Now, a little update on what I’ve been up to these past few days. I have been working on my hybrid project as much as I can, but I also have to get a few pages scrapped, so it’s been crazy trying to fit in everything I want to do!! But, I must say, the hybrid project is looking good and I hope I can finish it by Saturday! 🙂
It’s $2 Tuesday and Mari Koegelenbers is having 5 great products for sale!!

Let me show you a few of my favorites. 😉
I’m a sucker for alpha, so I certainly recommend these two:

I did this page a couple of days ago, and I really loved how it turned out. I think the punched out leaves look great! 😉

My hybrid project is coming along: between last night and this morning I finished the digital part. Now I need to buy some supplies, print everything out and assemble.
I’ve been a busy bee lately, but I won’t be scrapping LOs nearly as much this week, because I started working on a (huge!) hybrid project last night and I hope to get it done by next weekend, so that DH can bring it to my mom when he goes to visit.
I got to play with Jennifer Barrette’s collab with Lauren Grier, Off the Beaten Path, and I’m totally in love with this kit!!!
Here’s one page I created (there’s more, but I can’t show it just now.. 😉 ):
Then I did a page for the new My Story Matters challenge, about my friends in middle school:
Finally, and it’s worth celebrating, I ordered the photobook with the first 30 weeks of my P365!!!! 😀 Here’s the cover I made for the photobook:
Sorry for the extra long credits, but hey, there’s NINETEEN alphas in this page! 😉
That’s all for today! I have another page from this weekend to show, but I’ll leave that to tomorrow. 😉
This week has been crazy so far, but somehow I’ve managed to squeeze in some scrapping time nonetheless.
Here’s a page I did for the October Inspiration Point at ScrapMatters:
I finally got another page for my birthday done, now I only need to do another page with the yummy cake DH baked for me! 😉
And here’s a pretty luminary for the Dazzling Decor challenge:

I now have to force myself not to scrap anymore until I get the pages for my P365 photobook ready for print: I have an offer for a 60 page book that expires this weekend and I MUST get the pages saved and uploaded! It’s such a boring job and I’ve been putting it off and scrapping new pages instead, because of all the gorgeous new kits at ScrapMatters, but it’s now time to get this done!
Today is October 1st, and (apart from being my grandmother’s birthday! 😉 ) this means a new daily download is starting at ScrapMatters, and let me tell you this: you do NOT want to miss this!!!!!!!
