A Page and a Sketch

I am in the middle of moving, which entails packing up my craft room. In doing so, I uncovered several leftover pieces of paper and cardstock, and embellishments. While I was gathering them together to put them away, I noticed they went together well, and this page was born. (Shhhh… I was supposed to be packing but ended up making this instead ;))

I love how this page turned out, and it’s made entirely out of scraps!

Here are a couple details:

I used this to make a sketch to be used in one of the LOAW (Layout A Week) challenges I am hosting at Studio Calico this month.

You can play along here!

September ’17 Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

Hello! I’ve been quiet lately as life has been throwing us a few curve balls (blah), plus I started boxing up my craft supplies and prepping for our move, so I’ve been quite busy. But then one night I sat down to play with the new Mixed Media Monthly collection from The Lilypad, and boy did I have fun!! Here’s what I made.

These kits are so much fun to use. I always end up making something totally unexpected, and I love it!

It’s hard to pick a favorite among these three pages, but I think it’s this last one.

Have a great weekend!

New Home Pages

Of course my main scrapbooking topic lately is our new home.. over the long weekend, in addition to cleaning and buying furniture, I dug into the July 2017 kit from Gossamer Blue (that I bought in their closing sale) and made these two pages.

I love the colors and variety of embellishments of the kit! This July kit, along with the ones for the past few months that I also bought :), was designed by Geralyn Sy (In a Creative Bubble).

ETA: yay, this page was chosen for LOTW (Layout of the Week) at Studio Calico!

I added some bronze stars and puffy stickers from my stash. This color scheme is very versatile, it would be great for fall pictures too!

New Home

Phew… finally it came through and it’s official: we got a new home!!! So I used the latest BYOC (Build Your Old Collection) from The Lilypad, which is released today and is 20% off the weekend, to scrap a couple of pictures!
