Some exciting news and a reveal!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to finally be able to reveal some exciting news! I am now proud to say...

And today, I am sharing my first creations as a member of the Frosted Designs Team! I am thrilled to join such a wonderful group of ladies and grateful to Barb for giving me this opportunity!

So, onto my first reveal! When I saw the Glitz 77 collection in the store, I fell in love. See, I was born a couple decades too late. I am a huge fan of the 60s and 70s - the music, the culture, the history - and the 77 collection does an amazing job of capturing that 70s spirit but with a modern twist. The colors, patterns and various elements in the collection are amazing and it can really be used to scrap any topic. I have it planned for a couple travel layouts, some everyday moment layouts and it will probably show up among my Project Life spreads too since it comes with lots of sentiment stickers and a sheet of fun 4x6 and 3x4 cards.

First, I am sharing a travel layout with you. When I laid eyes on the puffy stickers and saw that old school VW van and the sentiment sticker with the title from one of my favorite Fleetwood Mac songs, I knew right away what my layout would be. It's a sort of "photo essay" of our cross-country road trip as we just moved from Oregon to Wisconsin...

And here are some closeups featuring the fun embellishments found in this collection. I am totally in love with the puffy stickers and those big rhinestones! I also happened to pick up the Studio Calico Printshop heart wood veneers and thought they went perfectly with all the hearts found in the 77 collection...

And, because I just couldn't put this collection down, I have a second layout to share with you all! I love this shot of my husband and son taken during a recent family portrait session and when I saw the quote from John Lennon's Imagine, I knew I wanted to use it on a page with this photo. For this layout, I decided to take the orange found in the collection out of the equation altogether and I love the way the black, white, gray, teal and gold play together - especially with the black and white photo.

Now for some closeups! Again, I couldn't get enough of the puffy stickers and used three of them to create a visual triangle. And, of course, I had to include one of the giant rhinestones. Also, the Kaisercraft mini blooms in sea breeze matched this collection perfectly, so I added one of those for a little texture.

There you go! My first Frosted Designs reveal! Now, head on over to the store to pick up the Glitz 77 collection and lots of other fun new goodies!

Simple Stories A Charmed Life is at Memorable Seasons!

I was "lucky" and "charmed" enough to get the chance to work with Simple Stories A Charmed Life this month at Memorable Seasons. This collection is just...happy and screams spring...if it ever comes. I love the blue, green and yellow color combo and all the embellies are so fun - lots of stars, hearts, flowers and clovers. And the sentiment stickers are awesome - I see them getting used a lot on future Project Life pages!

You can find this collection HERE in the Memorable Seasons store!!

Here's the front sides of the papers I received...

And the backsides...

And here is the cardstock and embellies...

And some extras I picked up...
(You can find the Jenni Bowlin tapes right here in the store.)

And here is what I created with this fabulous collection...


I also issued a couple challenges based on the above layouts. They aren't due until April 30th so head on over to the Memorable Seasons challenge forum to check them out, along with some other fun challenges, for a chance to win a prize!

Sharing my temporary scrap space!

Hi all!

I'm back to scrapping now that we are settled for the time being. We are temporarily living with my in-laws while in a transition period and they were awesome enough to let me take over their sunroom as a sort of scrap space. I have to say, all the natural light is fantastic! They set up one table for my computer and printer and another table for me to scrap on. Most of my scrap supplies and albums are all in storage for the time being, so I really had to make good decisions on what to keep with me. I stuck with mostly basics, Project Life stuff and a handful of kits. I thought this would be the easiest way to make it all work. So here are a couple photos of my temporary scrap space.

Taking a bit of a blogging break!

We've got a lot on out plate right now and are in the process of several life transitions. So, I will be taking a few weeks off from scrapping, and subsequently, blogging here. But don't you worry...I will be back scrapping in full force...especially playing catchup with Project life...sometime in March. Please stay tuned!

Getting Wintry Over At Memorable Seasons With Bo Bunny!

I know some of you are probably not really in the mood for a winter line with the amount of cold and snow you've been getting this season. But, I have to say, despite all the snow, wind, cold and school closings, you can't help but fall in love with this collection! And I had the pleasure of getting to work with this collection for my Memorable Seasons February Design Team Kit! Full of various shades of blues, grays, browns and whites and combining modern prints like grids and stripes with vintage patterns like music notes and handwritten letters, this collection can be used for any sort of winter photos. You definitely need to check out this fun, wintery collection in the Memorable Seasons store!!

And here are the papers I received...

And the backsides....

And the cardstock and embellishments...

And a few extras I picked up for myself...
