A Little Bit of Country

I have to admit that this layout was really out of the box for me for a couple of reasons. First off I hardly ever scrapbook about myself. I never like my pictures and I don't know what to journal. Second, I used a lot of diecutting on this page-something I'm still getting used to. I had my cricut for months before I started really using and enjoying it. All in all though I'm really pleased with the way this turned out. Being a country girl through and through all of these 3birds products worked out perfectly for me! I started out with patterned paper from the Straight From the Nest pack (I love the clouds!) I then used 3birds tweet trimmings for the adorable banner across the top. To make it appear like a clothes line I used cricut images of clothing. I added some dimension with cardboard, felt, and denim to make it feel more country and tada! Hope you like it!

Sweet Baby Boy

I love how soft 3Birds products can be. I decided to use some of the gorgeous die cut pp to make a baby LO about my DS when he was just a few days old. Keeping things somewhat muted and monotone, with some beige thrown in, really helps create a soft, delicate look.

Peek A Boo!

I have a quick and simple LO to share today, using a fun sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. Sometimes using a sketch is the best way to get yourself going and scrapping fast. There are many blogs and sites out there that have plenty of different challenges as well as sketches available for free. And I'm happy to say that this LO was picked as a Sketchy Thursdays Fav! :)

Spring Type Layers

Ahhhhh.....Spring is in the air! Daylight is longer, trees and flowers are starting to bloom and it's time to get those cute sandals!

Even in Spring time though you can still layer. Layer on your projects that is! Here is a layout I did that layers several layers from the Garden of Flowers Kit.

I love how many sizes and colors are given to give you endless layering options! To hold all of my flower layers together I used Premium Craft Glue by Helmar Adhesives. I definitely know they will not fall apart!

Other products I used for this project are:
Super Sticker Nestibles
Must Have Cardstock Basics
3D Embellishment Kit

A Touch of the Irish!

My daughter loves to dress up for the holidays, and St. Patrick's Day is no exception. This year she had an adorable t-shirt & necklace to wear. After getting her to pose for these cute photos I turned to 3birds products to make the perfect layout. I instantly knew that I wanted to use the chipboard shamrock/saying from "Sticky Sparkly Play on Words", andI used stitching to make a nice green border. The rest of the layout just came together after that! I love the touches of pink with the green, and hope that you do too!

Supply list:

A Flowery LO

Hi everyone, I wanted to share a fun LO where I got to make some lollipop flowers out of the fun paper in the Focus on Photos paper stack. The pp is covered in these pretty circles of varying sizes, so I cut them out and stacked them to make the flowers, securing with a brad in the center. Don't forget to scrunch them up a little and fold upwards to give them some dimension. This is a picture form Thanksgiving back from 2004, and I finally got to scrap it!

Fun Design!

I had a lot of fun creating this last layout with 3birds products. I used a mix match of different products and love how they all look together! And I just happened to be lucky enough to find 3birds patterned paper that perfectly matched my kitty's eyes, how perfect is that! To give this layout a little extra personality I added some stitching and a freehanded painted frame. It also helped that I had an adorable subject to scrap!

Fun Spring Colors!

With the weather around here going from cold and snowy to windy and rainy, I was in the mood for a bright layout with a spring feel. I chose some cheery green, orange, and pink patterned papers from the 3birds Straight from the Nest and Focus on Photos paper packs. I just loved the tree paper and the tree embellie from the 3-d embellishment sticker kit was the perfect accent. I added some coordinating stickers from the Tag Your It! from 3birds and some fun accents to give it some texture. After adding some stitching around the edges I had my spring layout! Now if it would just actually be Spring!

And I'm sure if you have young kids at home, you're in the same boat - there is a conveyor belt of kid birthday parties to attend and I can never stock up on enough cards for those! So I decided to make some more, and I can't begin to tell you how easy these are - if you gather your supplies it should only take a few minutes each.

Tweet Trimmings!

Ok, I am totally in love with the new product from 3birds, Tweet Trimmings! I was so excited when I opened these up and each one was prettier then the one before it. As soon as I saw this peacock, from the Tweet Trimmings, I knew what picture would look fabulous with it. This photo of my niece had the exact colors as the peacock and is such a fun picture that I new it would go together perfectly! I added some touches of stickles to accent the peacock and title and am so happy with the way it came out, it just might be one of my new favorite layouts!

Got a bad pic to scrap?

Sure, it's nice when you have gorgeous pics to scrap...but what about when you have a memory you want to document, but alas, no good pics to go with it? I had that problem when it came to scrapping our New Year's - DS would NOT cooperate! We had many out-takes...and never did get that one great pic. DS's lack of cooperation combined with bad lighting...well, this was the result. So I decided to just scrap them all! And throw a humorous title in, just to pull it all together. Here is the resulting LO, "How Hard Can It Be?" How hard can it be to get one good pic? Sometimes impossible :)

A Little Bit of Sparkle!

I knew as soon as I picked this photo to scrap that I wanted a really fun and girly layout to go with it. What better way to do this then with fun colors and sparkle! Right off I thought of the 3-D stickers from 3birds. I love the dimension and all of the details that these stickers have to offer and of course the beautiful sparkle! I only needed a few embellies to make this whole layout pop, and just adore the way it turned out!

Scrapping With Your Scraps

We all have them. You know those bits and pieces of patterned paper that are leftovers from other projects. What do you do with them? Do you toss them or save them? I suggest you save them and then gather a bunch of them together to create a fun and colorful layout using your scrap leftovers.

Take a look at this project. I used a bunch of different patterned papers from Focus On Photos Scrapbook Kit. The colors of the different papers are all complimentary in nature so they work together well. It didn't take a lot of time and effort to grab the scraps and I was quickly on my way creating a fun layout! To bring attention back to the photo I used a circle shape from the Cardstock Flocked Sticker Nestables Kit. So many cute and fun choices in the kit and I love the texture!

I had a title from the Play On Words pack that worked for this project and finished it all off with layered paper flowers from the Pretty Petals Paper Flower Kit. So fun and easy!

Thanks for stopping by! Now get scrapping!
