April Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

It’s time for the newest Mixed Media Monthly collection from The Lilypad – and it’s a really good one! I made 4 pages all in one sitting, because there were just so many good papers in the kit that I wanted to use!

The first page had to be about the crazy weather we are having this year.

Next, I made a motivational page inspired by the background paper with the words “time to begin again”.

What I love with the M3 collection is that you can add as little or as much as you want, and you can’t go wrong! Here I added very little – one piece of word art, a photo, and my journaling. That background paper is just so pretty!

And to finish, one more page about this crazy, crazy weather.

Have a lovely weekend!

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.

This next page doesn’t use the M3, but uses another new kit released today:

I am obsessed with that pretty red/pink/green floral paper! So gorgeous!

The Struggle Is Real

Hello and happy almost Friday! The new Mixed Media Monthly collection is in the store at The Lilypad, and it inspired me to tell a story about my health struggles I don’t normally document in my scrapbook pages – that’s one of the reasons I LOVE the Mixed Media Monthly products. But the main reason is that the products are absolutely gorgeous… check out that painted background!
