Saturday Releases

I had a scrap-fest last night and made three pages. 🙂 One is for the October gallery so it will be two weeks before I can share it, but the other two are done with brand new products that are 20% off today. First off, the last installment in the Days of the Week collection by Mari Koegelenberg and Sugarplum Paperie.  And here’s my page:

Love our little corner of the world! Next up, an adorable fall kit by Jenn Barrette!
I am in love with these colors! Seriously, gorgeous kit! I used it to scrap a picture I took the other day of a funny squirrel in our garden. 🙂

This squirrel kept running around and acting funny, until he stopped in this position for a bit. Seriously cracked me up! 😉

Falling Into Friday

Finally Friday! I have a group meeting tomorrow morning at 8 AM with my classmates, but I am still very glad that this week is over. I cannot believe how fast fall is getting here! Today’s new kits at The Lilypad are perfect to document this season! First up, a new collection by Sahlin Studio:

I am so in love with that deep blue color, paired with yellow. And the wood elements in this paper are gorgeous!
Next, there is something very special.. an entire collection by template queen Amy Martin!

This page was so much fun to make! I hope your weekend will be more relaxing than mine, and with lots of scrappy time! 😉

September featured kit by Sahlin Studio

The September featured kit on Sahlin Studio’s blog is the gorgeous Apple Orchard! This means that the kit is 30% off this month, and there’s a chance to win a gift card if you make a project with it!

Here’s a card I made for my husband’s first day of school. 🙂

I am itching to get crafty but my schedule is quite crazy at the moment.. but I have plans for Sunday! 🙂

Hello September!

Have you checked out the September gallery at This month’s theme is “palette-able”: we had to come up with a palette for our pages. I was super intimidated at the assignment, but then I just started playing, and I ended up having lots of fun! And I love how my page turned out! 🙂

I decided to get the palette from my photo – green + orange, then I broke out the watercolors (these and these) and added pink and blue and silver to the mix. Here are some details:

I had so much fun coloring the Heidi Swapp alphas with watercolors!

Do you usually think of the palette for your page ahead of time, or do you just go with the flow? What are your favorite colors to scrap with? I love bright colors, and I think all my pages have some pops of color in them, I cannot help myself from adding color! 🙂
