Birthday Kit

Ju Kneipp has a new birthday kit in the store today, and it was just what I needed to scrap my birthday!

I had fun making this page!

Make A Wish

Party Over Here by Ju Kneipp

I also used the kit to make a birthday card for my grandmother, since her birthday is coming up soon. I have a confession to make.. as much as I love making cards, I have a complete aversion to making birthday cards. Not really sure why! But I love how this one turned out!

Here’s a detail:

ETA 9/24: I got a gallery standout for this card! 😉

I am totally ready for the weekend… just one more day to go! 🙂

Hello Saturday!

Yay for the weekend! I have some new goodies to share today. First off, a Christmas in July release by Mari Koegelenberg.

This very collection was turned into a paper line for My Mind’s Eye – how cool is that?? I thought I had already scrapped most of our 2011 Christmas, but I found this adorable picture of our elf that hadn’t been scrapped yet, so I made this page.


This collection is really huge, and I love the bright colors!

Next up, a fabulous collab by Jenn Barrette and Ju Kneipp. It’s available at DHD and SSD.

I made a page

Maine Vacation

and a card, and I love them both! 😉

Whale card

I love vintage designs, and Jenn’s kits always have a special find. I know I have been a quiet blogger lately, but I’ve been immersed into my Project Life. I’m stuck on week 22 – that was the week of our road trip with my mom, and I have hundreds and hundreds of photos to tackle! I’m almost done though – I’m currently working on the Friday of that week, so I hope to be able to share something soon! I also want to make a post about my favorite PL supplies, so look for that next weekend. 🙂

iNSD 2012

I have SO many goodies to share for iNSD, and I’m going to put them all in one post – so be prepared, because it’s going to be a long one!

Let’s start with what’s going on at The Lilypad. The May BYOC is in the store, everything is 30% off, there’s a free with $15 purchase collab, and fun and games and chats.

Make sure you check out the forum to keep up with all that is going on! This week I finished up the last 2 pages that were missing to complete the album about my mom’s visit last year, and I placed the order for a 60-page photobook. It should get here just in time for her next visit, I’m really excited! I used the May BYOC to scrap the cover and 1 page:

I love those painty backgrounds by Kitty Designs! And the stamped alphas by Michelle Godin are awesome too!

I also made a page about a few of the things that happened this week.

What a Week!

Then I made two quick cards using BYOC goodies by Sahlin Studio and Jenn Barrette:

Hello Card

I am in love with that paper! Look out for it to make an appearance soon in my Project Life album. 🙂

Life Is Good card
A Wonderful Day Mixed Media by Sahlin Studio 

To make the other missing page in my mom’s album, I used the new release by creashens, which is 35% off:

It wouldn’t be iNSD without freebies, right?? Ju Kneipp has a gorgeous one on her Facebook page!

I love the page I made with it, and it came together in no time!

Sweet Spring
With All My Heart – Facebook Freebie by Ju Kneipp

OK… almost done! 🙂 Mari Koegelenberg has 2 new releases out today, and they are both gorgeous!! The first is a kit packed with essential supplies:

I love how my page turned out!

And the second kit is so bright and cheerful!

I used the stamped alpha from the essential kit on my page too.

Phew! Well, I think that’s all I have for now! 😀 Have a fabulous iNSD weekend! 🙂

Have Fun!

Ju Kneipp has a new gorgeous collection out today! It’s made of two parts, one for boys and one for girls:

I am experiencing a serious, unexpected addiction to bright green ;), so I used the boy portion to make this fun card:

Have Fun card

I love how it turned out! I gave it to DH yesterday as he was about to leave for a business trip.

You can buy the two kits separately in Ju’s store at Catscrap or Oscraps, but I think it’s really fun to mix and match too!

Collage Houses

Keep scrolling for the Hopping Halloween blog hop!

I am dying to share this project! I did it last night and I’m so happy with how it turned out!! 🙂 Ju Kneipp and Tangie Baxter have teamed up to create a fantastic kit out today at Oscraps:

I used it to make a frame with collage houses and I am SO excited about how this project turned out!

Collage Houses

Creative Felicity by Ju Kneipp and Studio Tangie

Here are some details. The house on the left is all digi – it’s an element made by Tangie. And it inspired me to create my own collage houses. I had so much fun with this project! 😉

Summer Sunshine

Ju Kneipp has a gorgeous new kit at Catscrap:

Like all her kits, this really makes me want to scrap! I started by making this card:

My Light in the Dark card

I have a couple of pages to show that I did this weekend, I will post them tomorrow.

Super Friday!

I have a lot of fun products to show you today! Let’s start with a super collab between Ju Kneipp and Kaye Winiecki:

You can also find this at Oscraps and at The Lilypad. I thought I didn’t have any use for a superhero kit, but it turns out I had lot of fun making this page! 😉

Save the Day

My Hero by Ju Kneipp and Kaye Winiecki

Next, a gorgeous hand drawn element pack by CD Muckosky:

Of course this screamed “hybrid” to me, so I made a card using some other CD goodies:

I Quack You card

Meet the Chickie-Ds, World of Wonder Papers and Free Spirit Alpha by CD Muckosky

I gave the card to DH last Sunday and he loved it! He was really impressed at how realistic the alpha looks, and I was impressed that he even noticed, since he’s not usually very observant! 😉

Then there is collab by Lauren Reid and Emily Merritt that is so versatile and fun!

I really had fun making this page:

Next Time...

I have gotten two college degrees, a bachelor’s and a master, but I haven’t gotten to wear a cap yet. (No, the paper one my colleagues made me doesn’t count!) But next time, I will get one for sure! I can’t wait! 😉

Finally, I fell in love with the colors of these papers and elements by Rachel Young:

I used them to scrap another page of my mom’s visit:

Mom's Visit Day 4: Tea

Lovely Papers and Lovely Elements by Rachek Young Designs
Paper Cuts alpha by Designs by Lili
Font: Pea Pumpkin Peters

and I have a matching page in the works. Have a great Friday!

More Goodies!

I have lots more to show you and more exciting news to share! Mari Koegelenberg is guesting at CatScrap this month. Her new kit is 20% off:

This is the perfect princess kit, but it’s so much more too!! Don’t believe it? Well, check out the page I made with it:

Me in May 2011

I have so many blessings in my life. In this moment I want to focus on the good things and not dwell on the things that should have gone differently.
I choose to be happy.

The colors and patterns in this kit are just awesome! And it is positively HUGE!

Ju Kneipp also has a new collection at CatScrap today. This girl is amazing, her designs are always so inspiring, they make me want to scrap and create!

I started off with some hybrid. Here is a quick card I made last night:

Light Guides You Home card

I’m very glad it’s Friday, now if the weekend would just move and arrive already! 😉

More iNSD Fun!

I’m late posting this, but yesterday some gorgeous new kits were released, and I really have to share! But let me start with something for today:

#1 Mom Card

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Now, on to the goodies! Jenn Barrette has some fantastic new kits, all for sale 30% off in her shop.

I am SO in love with this kit!! I managed to do these 2 cards just hours before my mom arrived, but I can’t wait to scrap with this kit too!

I Love You Deer card

And look at these gorgeous collabs with Kristin Cronin-Barrow! One for books:

And the other for movies:

They will certainly come in handy to scrap about two of my passions! They also come as a bundle to save some $$$.

Changing gears, I have something else to show you, a quite extraordinary kit by Sahlin Studio and Ju Kneipp:

Boy, do I have some catching up to do!! All these kits are just sooo yummy!

Sweet Collab!

Juliana Kneipp has teamed up with Valorie Wibbens to create a super sweet kit new today at The LilyPad (and 20% off!!).

I had just the perfect memory to scrap with it:

A Perfect Weekend

We were so disappointed that the hotel only had availability for one night, but we decided to go anyway because with my crazy schedule we have to grab any opportunity we get. It turned out to be a fabulous weekend: even though it was short, we did so many things and had a fantastic time.

I’ll be back later to post a couple cards I forgot to post earlier this week. 😉
