Through the Window Challenge at Heart 2 Heart!

We are starting off the month of November with a great challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges (using your CTMH products)! The new challenge is "Through The Window". What comes to mind for you? How could you use a Window on a page or card?

I used a Window on a scrapbook page! I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge and cut out a window frame. (I set it to real dial size 9). I filled the window panels with 4x4 pictures of the things I see out the window at my house. I really LOVE where I live and love the view I have of our family farm!

For my title I combined a cricut cut heart with different alphabet stamps, as well as a cricut cut shape. I used letters from the CTMH cartridge and welded them together in Cricut Craft Room before I cut. (I love not having to worry about loosing the dot for my 'i'!)

How will YOU interpret this challenge? I can't wait to see what you make. You have the whole month of November to play along. Hope you join us.

Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge

I LOVE a sketch challenge! I'm so excited that this is the current challenge over at Heart 2 Heart!

I decided to apply this sketch to a scrapbook page since I need to work on my Wedding Album. I thought the circles could look like rings!

I used the NEW Cricut bundle, Artistry, from Close To My Heart for the diamond on my ring. I also used glitter paper for the solid layer of the diamond. The stars under the diamond are a stamp from the October Stamp Of The Month! (It's not JUST for Christmas!)

The sketch was so much fun! I hope you can play along too. Just post your entry by the end of the month!

Happy Crafting!

Workin' 9-5, Wanderful

Have you scrapbooked a layout for yourself about your day job? Now is the perfect time to do so! Why not document the place you dedicate so much of your time to? Over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog we are looking for your entries for the theme of "Workin' 9-5"! You have until the end of this month to enter.

For my design (as part of the "Team Slate- Design Team") I created a layout for my Husband using the Wanderful Paper Collection. I found that he has some fun work photos on his cell phone, so I got those printed out to tell his story. I wish I had done another one of these years ago for him and also for myself. It just doesn't always come to mind to take pictures at work or document that day to day detail.

My hubby does a lot of driving for work. The stickers from the complements set worked perfectly because they spell out "Here, There, and Everywhere"... The same answer I get when I ask where he worked that day!

I needed to add a few extra pictures to this layout so I used a flip flap. The "There" sticker made a perfect "tab" to lift the flap with. I put the sticker right on the flap then covered the remaining sticky section with reinforcing cardstock.

So, where do you spend YOUR 9-5 hours? Have you told that story in your scrapbook yet? I can't wait to see how you play along with this challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Ticket to Ride, H2H Challenge with Zoe Papers

"Ticket to Ride" is this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart! This was a great time for me to finally scrap a few photos from a couple years ago... Lawnmower Rides with Daddy!

It's a simple moment, so I wanted to keep the layout clean and simple. I used the NEW (Early Released) Paper Collection from Close To My Heart called "Zoe".  This paper is both cheerful and adorable.

The "One Happy Day" sentiment on the zip strip seemed fitting for my photos. I added a couple accents from the Complements Sticker pack.

This "Me & You" sticker was too cute not to use under this picture!

Needed a little something on the upper portion of the Right Hand page... A couple stars, and pennant, and a quick tie of glacier twine.

You have the rest of the month to play along with the Challenge at Heart 2 Heart. What inspires you to scrapbook when you hear the theme "Ticket To Ride"? Can't wait to see what you create!

Wanderful Layout #1

It's almost time for August, which means it's almost time for "Wanderful"- our August class theme! This paper collection from Close To My Heart is... well... WANDERFUL! (hehe)

Wanderful layout #1 is based upon a sketch challenge I entered at "Let's Scrap Challenge Blog"! My interpretation of the sketch is a scatter of photos, hand stamped journaling elements, arrow washi tape, and airplanes. I always feel the need to add in in just a couple more photo wells! (Sorry this layout is not filled with my photos yet, but I am waiting on the prints to arrive. It will be a page about my husband's trip out to Colorado to visit family!)

You can play along with the sketch challenges at let's scrap twice a month. Check in on the 1st and the 15th. It is a great way to hit the ground running when you work on your scrapbooking. You sit down to work with a pattern already decided!

Absolutely LOVE this arrow washi tape! It adds the perfect detail and is super quick and easy! It makes a layout look finished, much the way making a bed makes a bedroom appear more put together instantly.

I loved this sentiment above! "It feels good to be lost in the right direction". Adorable!

Life Is GOOD!

This week's challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog is "Life is Good". I was sorting through some photos and wonder what pictures I might use for this challenge... I stopped at this stack because as I was looking through the pictures I got a feeling inside that "Life IS good!". It felt like the right fit!

Life is good, and the paper I used is "Wanderful"! :) I love that there is PURPLE in it!

What better day to feel that "Life is GOOD", then on your Birthday!?

I hope you like my entry for my position on Team Slate of the Design Team. I encourage you to look through your photos and scrapbook the stack that speaks to you and gives you that feeling that "Life is Good". There is time to play along until the end of the month. I hope to see your take on the challenge in the entries!

Happy Crafting!

Life is a Beach!

Life is a Beach! I am beyond excited to submit my FIRST project created for my FIRST time ever serving on a Design Team. I am a member of Team Slate at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog! This has been an item on my Bucket List for a couple of years now. It feels so good to be taking part in this adventure.

Learn more about how you can join in on the Challenge: Life is a Beach! Plus, get inspired by what the Design Team has come up with!


Summer is in full swing and it's the perfect time to set aside the chance to go play and enjoy the beautiful weather! It was a rainy day that I took the chance to escape to my craft room and create this layout for some of my FAVORITE Beach photos!

For my layout I followed along with a Sketch Challenge from Let's Scrap, 7-1-15! I hope you like my take on it.
I created my 2 page layout using the paper pack, "Brushed", from Close To My Heart. I loved how the pages matched my daughter's swim suit, plus the Sticker Complements made the perfect Title- "Sassitude"!

The other stickers from the Complements sheet coordinated nicely with some of the embellishment opportunities on the sketch!

Visit the other Team Members from the "Team Slate" Design Team and check out what may inspire you to create your "Life Is A Beach" project! Don't forget to link your creation up to the challenge!

Thanks for stopping in to see what I've been creating!
