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!
Hello there! The latest Mixed Media Monthly collection was released at The Lilypad, and I loved the theme! I used this to make this inspirational page:
Have a great weekend!
Hello and happy (almost) Friday! Today is release day for the newest M3 (Mixed Media Monthly) collection at The Lilypad, and I loved using it to scrap some of the photos of recent trip I made with my parents! New releases are 20% off through the weekend!
I love how easy it is to build a page using these gorgeous backgrounds!
I had fun on this page combining brushes to build my background.
This next page doesn’t use the M3, but uses another new kit released today:
I also used the M3 for my monthly recap 2-page spread for July:
I am obsessed with that pretty red/pink/green floral paper! So gorgeous!
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!
Mixed Media Monthly – June ’17 from The Lilypad
Have a great rest of the week!
Hello and happy Friday! I am so happy spring has made its arrival, although it’s amazing to realize nearly a third of the year has gone by already!
I am loving the monthly recap pages I have been putting together, and here is the one I made for April.

April Stuff by Allison Pennington
All the bright colors! 🙂 And here’s a look at each page.
I added a new Foxy Fix notebook to my collection last week – I need to blog about it! Here are my previous posts about these traveler’s notebooks.
And then I also made a page with the new Mixed Media Monthly (M3) collection. I love how the M3 inspires me to try new techniques. Here I blended 2 papers (the one for the background and the one with blue and white clouds and sketched trees), as well as a photo (on the bottom of the page). So fun!
Mixed Media Monthly April 2017 from The Lilypad
Have a great weekend! And save the date – May 6 is iNSD (interNational Scrapbooking Day!) and there will be some fun events and sales at The Lilypad!
Not gonna lie… it’s been a rocky week this week for me – with the attacks in Nice, France, and some drama concerning one of my husband’s volunteer jobs… So I dealt it the best way I know of… with some scrap therapy. The latest Mixed Media Monthly collection in the store today at The Lilypad was perfect for this, and to document my goals for this year, which include getting into the groove with yoga.
Have a good weekend!
Hello hello! I am enjoying a 10-day visit with my mom so I’ll keep this short and sweet. 🙂 Today it’s release day for the Mixed Media Monthly collection at The Lilypad, and I am 100% in love with these patterns and colors!!
Have a great end of the week!
I’m so excited for today’s Mixed Media Monthly (M3) release at The Lilypad!
On the first page, I combined the M3 main kit with some of the fabulous add ons. This month’s theme is calm / passing the storm, and all the rain elements worked perfectly to document a very rainy but lovely day we had in New York City last week.
It’s hard to pick a favorite in the M3 collection, but it’s probably the paper backgrounds – there is so much variety and they are the best way to stat your page! This month, they even included a coloring page. I have never done coloring (or at least the adult coloring trend that is so popular right now), but as soon as I saw this page I knew I wanted to try it. It’s such a cool design! So I did, and used it for this 2-page layout:
Coloring page from the Mixed Media Monthly main kit- Apr. 16 from The Lilypad (left page)
Lollipop Guild scrapbook kit from Studio Calico (right page)
Here’s a closer look at the coloring page:
I printed it on heavy cardstock and then added my coloring – first with markers, and then with watercolors (my favorite). I decided not to fill the whole page because I loved the black&white look too. I love how it turned out! And it was the perfect complement for the right page, which is all made with physical scrapbook products.
I love that busy background and how it’s toned down by the colored page on the left.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great end of the week!
I’m so in love with this month’s Mixed Media Monthly collection from The Lilypad. The colors are just so lovely!
This was such a fun page to make! The kit is 20% off through the weekend.
Hello and happy Friday! Today is a very good day- not only is it Friday, but it’s time for the new Mixed Media Monthly (M3) release at The Lilypad. I loved the kit so much this month!!
I made three pages just with the kit.
I used this adorable heart background to list all the things I am loving right now.
Those clustered hearts are fantastic!
I love the pink and all the painted bits!
I also made two pages using some of the M3 add ons.
I used the M3 main kit in addition to some add ons here.
I hope your end of the week is a good one too!
