Today I wanted to share another American Crafts layout with you.  This one I created using the new Lucky Charm line. This has to be one of my favorite lines from AC.  You need this line once it comes out, just saying :) 

Here is my layout.  This is Hannah after eating frozen blueberries.   For some reason my kids love frozen blueberries (not me).

American Crafts Use It Up

I have a fun "Use It Up" layout on the American Crafts blog.  This week is about using up those scraps. I managed to mix 4 different lines on this layout using my small pieces I cut into triangles.  Come check out the tutorial HERE.

Here is the layout using Ready, Set, Go, 5th & Frolic, Kringle & Co., & Pumpkin Patch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  I hope you have been inspired to use up your scraps!

PS I used a sketch from Scrapfriends!

Fresh New Look & AC Yes, Please!

After the week I had last week I decided I needed a fresh new look to help me feel better and also help with those winter blues I have been feeling! I like snow but I'm ready for spring to get here!   I love what Jen did with my new blog.  She was wonderful to work with.

Speaking of fresh new looks, here is a layout I created with the new American Crafts Amy Tangerine line Yes, Please!  I love the bright, fun colors this line has in it. This is a layout of miss Hannah playing with her playdoh.

Love the new stitched vellum shapes!  And check out the new stamp too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would love to read what you think of my new "look".

Anyway, here is a layout I created with the sold out January kit from Citrus Twist.

My All

I have another fun layout to share using the January Kit from Citrus Twist

This layout is special because my husband always gives me a hard time about taking his picture and he never knew I was taking these ones.  He actually said to me "I really like those pictures you took of me and you know I don't like my pictures.  When did you take them?"  I told him the best pictures are the ones when your expecting it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  I love reading your comments!

Played Out

Good Monday Morning!!  Today I wanted to share a fun layout I created with the New January Kit from Citrus Twist!  This kit was revealed this weekend but is completely SOLD OUT!  And once you see the colors and all you get you'll know why ;)

Played Out is a layout about my daughter Christmas Morning.  Once the presents were opened and the excitment wore off she fell asleep with all her new things surrounding her.

I tucked my journaling inside the cute bag that comes in the kit.

Love the AC Glitter Thickers and the rich blue ink spot!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Project 12

I was very excited when Lori (from Gossamer Blue) ask us to create a Project 12 page!  Davinie came up with the idea of Project 12 where you do a page like Project Life but only you do one page each month instead of one page a week.  I have always wanted to do PL but knew I would never stick with it so this new concept is perfect for me!! 

You can read all about Project 12 and Gossamer Blue's challenge HERE!  There is a fun challenge and some prizes for playing along.

Here is my Dec. 2012 Project 12 page.  I used the Gossamer Blue Bits & Pieces kit for January and the new Color Kit.

Here is a close up:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll join me for a fun new challenge to document this new year!

A Flurry Of Activity

Well, I have been keeping a fun little secret from you all....we are expecting our 5th!!  I know crazy right?!  Well, this one was not exactly expected and kinda a miracle (I won't go in to details) but let just say we are being blessed again and I excited!  I know God has big plans for this one just not sure what.

This layout was created with the January Gossamer Blue Main Kit and digital only.  I love those little snowflakes that are on the digital end of the kit.  I cut them out on my Cameo.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!!

My daughter has a thing for pigs.  It all started when I put the movie Charlotte's Web in for her.  She just loves them.  Well this little piggy was going to be a stocking stuffer but we couldn't get out of the store with out buying it right then.  I was hoping she would forget about but no she reminded me on the way home she had to have her piggy.  

I used the new January Kit from Gossamer Blue!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
