December ’16 Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

Hello hello! I’ll keep this short and sweet because Christmas is only 1 week away (eek!) and I’m running around like crazy lately (but having a blast)! 🙂 I have two pages to share made with the new Mixed Media Monthly collection from The Lilypad – I had to grab it right away even though I am plagued with a spotty internet connection at the moment, so it was a pain to download – but so worth it!!

The colors are so pretty! And the alpha stamp is really cool.

Have a great Christmas week!

Christmas Spirit

This year December sprung onto me, and between trips and craziness at work, I wasn’t ready for it. But finally, I am feeling the Christmas spirit! Christmas music is playing loud on this December weekend, and I have all my Christmas shopping done. Yay!
I have some pages to share made with this week’s new releases  at The Lilypad, which are 20% off through the weekend.

20% off through the weekend for FF

These 2 pages are made to coordinate since they are part of the same story / Shopping trip.

And finally, a page made using Dawn Inskip’s gorgeous illustrations!

The background was made by blending a paper from the Wonder: Penguins Mini Kit  onto the background from the Kiwiana Paper Pack, using this awesome technique by @jk703!

Have a great weekend!

December Pages

I have been scarce lately… but I have a good reason: I got to spend a week in Hawaii accompanying my husband – it was our first time there, and we absolutely loved it! The weather was just perfect! And now that I am back, I have lots of photos to scrap. 🙂
I used this week’s 50% off products at The Lilypad (on sale through Wednesday), as well as this month’s BYOC collection that was released while I was away.

The rest is from the December BYOC!

Winter Wishes Elements by Paula Kesserling
Ink Pad Alpha by Pink Reptile Designs
Shimmer Elements and Shimmer Papers by One Little Bird

Not only did I get to spend a week in Hawaii, but I also got to meet up with some online friends who live there – it was awesome!! It is so nice to have some crafty friends, if only they didn’t live so far away!


And since we are now well into December, of course I had to scrap a page about our Elf and his two dear friends. 🙂
Have a great rest of the week!

December Kits at Studio Calico: Cypress Grove

Hello and happy December! For the 12th month in a row, I am here on the first of the month to share a page made with the new digital releases from Studio Calico. Kits go for sale at noon EST for subscribers, and 3 PM EST for everyone else.

I used the icons on a card from the Christmas Bingo set, recolored it, and punched out the circles. Then I built a Christmas tree with them. The rest of my page comes from my stash, including some leftover bits of paper from Lollipop Guild (the Dec. 2015 scrapbook kit) and Canyonlands (Nov. 2015).

I love how it turned out!

Decorating the tree was so much fun!
