I have a new layout up on the Chic Tags blog today!

I took this photo with my phone as we were headed down the two lane road just after leaving my mom and dad in-law's house. I love that there's not a car in sight. So different from the busy city where we live.
I added the cluster of tidbits from the Story Teller collection to the left side of my layout, then layered my photo with the Story Teller 3x4 cards. A little machine stitching and a flair button and my layout was done!

**Since I did a little machine stitching on this one, I'm linking this up over at Paper Issues for their You're Sew Cute, You Keep Me In Stitches link party!

You & Me

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a little sneak peek of this layout a few days ago. It's me and my girl at about the same age.

I used some embellishments from the new "Just Sayin" collection by My Minds Eye, a title cut with my Cameo, and a paint chip that I picked up at Home Depot ;)  I may or may not have a bench I want to paint mint green ;)

It's finally Friday friends, enjoy!

A new layout to share!

I went to a crop over the weekend with a group of ladies that have just recently "found each other" as local scrapbookers. We are all in different ages and stages, some empty nesters, no children, young children, grandkids, working outside the home, home based businesses, you get the idea.  The one commonality is we all love to scrapbook! It's fun to see how a stranger can become a friend over paper and glue.  Anyway, I had a great time, and I have one of the layouts I made to share with you.

Happy Monday!

Story Teller

I have a new layout up on the Chic Tags blog today using the cute new Story Teller collection. I just love the fun cameras and typewriters!

Story Teller has a bright whimsical feel to it, but I love how it looks with this old black and white photo.

Happy Wednesday my friends!

Pocket Scrapbooking Re-Mix

Here's a new layout that was up on the 3 Birds Studio Blog, using the "For All Seasons Themed Cards." I’m sure many of you have heard of “Pocket Scrapbooking”,  a trend that is gaining a lot of attention in the scrapbooking world. It's a quick and easy version of scrapbooking, where making a layout is as simple as adding photos and cards to fill up the pockets of a 12×12 (and other sizes too!) page protector. So what if you haven't given the pocket style scrapbooking a try? What if traditional scrapbooking is more your thing? How about using those cards on a traditional 12×12 layout

For my layout, I used the 4×6 “awesome” card and the 4×3 “summer” card as embellishments with my photo in between. Both cards are from the Summer themed stack, and are just two of the sizes included. There are also 3×2 and 4×4 cards in each stack, perfect for not only layouts and pocket scrapbooking, but cards and crafty projects too!

I embellished the awesome card by adding the arrow and recorded stickers, and then added a bit of foam tape under the memory sticker to give it a bit of dimension.

The For All Seasons Cards just made their debut on The Home Shopping Network last week, you can check them out here!

Color Crush: Gold

Here's a new layout I had up on the Chic Tags blog this week.
I've been crushing on gold lately, and these gold foil letter stickers are perfect!! They look so pretty with the floral and chevron patterns. 

I also used gold label stickers to add the date and as embellishments. Don't you love the shimmer and shine! The best part, gold goes with any color combination ;)

Well, it's finally Friday. Time to enjoy!
