Circus Fun!

I have scrapped these pages about a month ago, and was waiting to share them when the kit was in the store, so here goes, finally:

I love this kit by Scrap’it Designs! It is so versatile and fun! I used it to scrap my favorite picture from my mom’s visit.

And then I made a photo-less page.

I’m sorry for not being able to share the journaling, since I’m talking about other people, but let me say that scrapping this page was very therapeutic!

Friday Releases!

It’s Friday, and there are some fabulous new releases at The Lilypad! First off, a fantastic collab by Sahlin Studio and Kate Hadfield:

and there are some great additional packs too:

As you must have learned by now if you’re a follower of this blog, I don’t have any camping pictures, but that’s not a problem! This kit is very versatile and works great for any outdoor pictures or hybrid projects! Here’s a card I made with it:

Christmas in July!

There’s a great sale going on at The Lilypad on Christmas products, which includes today’s new releases! And there are fun games and challenges in the forum, make sure you check them out! Here’s a lovely new Christmas kit by Karah Fredricks that I used:

and I paired it with this new alpha by Sahlin Studio:

I used both to scrap a page about Christmas gifts:

Christmas in March?!

In the past few years I have to say I’ve always been pretty good at getting Christmas presents well in time, but this year I beat all records for sure: it was March when we bought these two gorgeous necklaces for our moms!

And then  I used this Christmas kit to scrap a non-Christmas page: it’s the theme of one of the fun challenges running at The Lilypad for Christmas in July!

New Releases!

I have so many gorgeous new products to show today!! Let’s start with this fabulous collab by Erica Zane and Jenn Barrette, at ScrapMatters:

This kit is fantastic! The colors make me so happy, and the doodled elements and papers are so gorgeous! I fell in love with this paper, so I made this page with it:

Next, there is a seriously awesome new kit by Valorie Wibbens at The Lilypad.

I scrapped this page this morning during breakfast, because I could not wait to use the kit! And I’m dying to get back scrapping and use the other fabulous papers!

First Fawn Sighting

Today, a Friday, I was working at the kitchen table and I got up to get a glass of milk. I glanced out the window and I saw a fawn just outside out backyard. DH was out, unfortunately, but I had time to take a few pictures. Then, after the fawn walked away, I went outside and saw that in fact there are two fawns, not just one.

What a fun Friday! And I have more to share in a bit!

Messy Inked Templates

I love these templates by Amy Martin that are 50% off today for Wibbit Wednesday:

I’m not much of a template scrapper, because I generally find it faster to come up with a design myself, based on the orientation and size of my pictures, but recently I have been using templates a lot more, because some are just too pretty to resist! These are so much fun, with the ink splatters! Here’s my page:

Have a great day! Come back Friday: I’ll have something fun to share!

(Late) New Releases

I have been a bad blogger this week! I have two new releases from Friday to share, and am only getting around to posting them now! First off, a gorgeous element pack by Kate Hadfield at The Lilypad:

And here’s my page, also using a mix of products from the July BYOC.

July 4th Picnic

This year we went to our first 4th of July concert+fireworks! It was Ralph’s idea, although he almost canceled when he found out that this year they changed the ground rules, and you can no longer bring your own food and drinks. But we convinced him to go anyway, and it was fun! We ended up buying some cheese and wine there. We bought new camping chairs for the occasion. It was mighty hot, but still fun, and Ralph and Jeff were good company. It would have ended well, if only the Off clip-on mosquito repellent had worked. But even that was not the main problem, since I only got 4 mosquito bites. What was worse was the reaction to the bites: my feet/legs were swollen and hurting for a week and I ended up missing the fireworks in our town. I guess I should stick to indoor picnics… πŸ™‚

Hello Sunshine

I am so excited to show you Mari Koegelenberg’s latest kit, out today! It is huge and absolutely gorgeous!

I scrapped with it last night, and to give you an idea about how awesome this kit is, let me tell you a bit more about last night. I was not feeling too well and was super tired, so not exactly in the mood for scrapping, but I started making a page anyway and I got so into it that it’s one of my favorites ever!

This kit is soooo much fun! I love scrapping so much! πŸ™‚ And you really can’t go wrong with such an awesome kit!


No, we do not have a new puppy, nor do we plan to get one, but a dear friend of ours recently got a cute little puppy, so I had to scrap about it! πŸ™‚

Today is Wibbit Wednesday, which means a lot of great products are for sale 50% off at The Lilypad, including these beautiful templates by Valorie Wibbens:

And here’s my page:


Brian’s new puppy, Gabby, is too stinkin’ cute! He’s been home for a little under a week, but he is the prince of the house already!
