..:: always sparkle girl ::..

Hello!  I am participating in a Product Spotlight over on the Paper Issues blog. This is my last project as a Paper Issues Design team member, but stick with me and keep reading because I have some happy scrappy news coming soon.  Either way, I am super thankful for the time I've had with Paper Issues, and I will continue to participate in their challenges and other goings on in the Paper Issues Friends and Fans group! And who knows, maybe I will be back as a design team member in the future. 

We are spotlighting Doodle Bug's most recent collections. I am using the "girl" one called Fairy Tales for this layout of my daughter at the park.

Here are a couple of closeups!

Love this flair from A Flair for Buttons. Like I said I have happy scrappy news.  I am now on the Design Team for A Flair for Buttons!  I have been a long time customer of Shelley's flair and I am super excited for this adventure!

 I made a process video if that suits your fancy!

Stay tuned on this blog and other social media for more important announcements coming in the future!

..:: introducing my new alien green kia soul ::..

It's a new issue over at Paper Issues and I got to play along! Here is my take on the challenge:

My car died (ugh), I got a new car (yeah)! I love the color, a ton. So I used it for this layout! 👍 I started with some stitching -- which I set up on my Silhouette Cameo. It made the holes for me and then I stitched for days. LOL  Added some Heidi Swapp Color Shine (in Citron) and a few black splatters. 

I super heart that flair don't you???? Of course it's from A Flair for Buttons

Simple. Easy. Fun.  Check out all the details on the blog -- I hope you play along with the Put the Petal/Pedal to the Medal/Metal Challenge this month!

See you soon!

Hi! Hope you are having a Happy Easter if that is something that you celebrate! I'm here today with a layout I made using items available in the April Scrapbook Circle Kit and some flair from A Flair For Buttons. I'm submitting this to their challenge this month that is all about metallics!  Here's my take on the challenge!

The story that I'm documenting today is all about my daughter, the song writer. B. has been using my typewriter (and sometimes her iPad) to type up songs that she has written. And they are actually pretty amazing. So for this layout, I wanted to document one of my favorites. I used it as the bulk of the journaling -- as you see below.

For the challenge I used a lot of copper foil fun! Pink fresh Studios Live On collection has these awesome alphas that are copper colored. There are also starts and asterisks on the alpha sheet! I added those throughout my wreath. For a closer look you can check out my process video, if that suits your fancy! 

Here are a couple more close ups:

I did a lot of fussy cutting for this layout!

A layout isn't a layout without a little flair from A Flair For Buttons! For real. 😀

See you soon!

..:: sweet sweet little delights ::..

It's a product spotlight sort of day over on the Paper Issues blog and I got to play along!  Today we are putting the spotlight on Pinkfresh Studio's Live More collection. Here's my layout using this awesome collection:

Just a few splatters of mist and a little thread for my sewing -- the rest is all Pinkfresh. I used a little bit of everything on this layout -- die cuts from the ephemera pack, puffy stickers, word stickers, the arrow paperclips (took the clip off) and two sets of alphas!  I absolutely love how this one turned out!

Here's a close up of my 'subtitle'. 😀

And another close up of the splatters behind my title -- I love those acetate letters!
