Golden Gate Bridge with Imaginisce's Happy Traveler Collection

I have so many vacation pictures that need to be scrapbooked.  Today I am going to show you what I did using the new Happy Traveler Collection.

I love this collection so much, in fact when I received it in the mail,  I squealed with delight (I often do that when I receive my scrappy mail) because it was perfect for our family's California vacation.  If you remember, one of my posts in August, I used this collection for some California pictures.  So, I'm going to keep on scrapping those pictures with this collection until I run out of my's perfect!  Here is a look at my layout.

I love all of the fun die cut cardstock shapes that come with this collection.  I did a little layering with them and also used a couple of the wood veneer shapes.  I also wanted to use my I-Magicut.  This tool is awesome.  I love cutting ribbon with it and best of fraying, EVER!  I made some little flag pendants out of ribbon using this tool.  

So, just because it is Fall now, doesn't mean you can't pull out your family's vacation pictures and get scrapping!  I scrap all kinds of photos year round!  Make sure you pick up the Happy Traveler Collection if you haven't already and get to work!  Make sure you are checking the Imaginisce Blog to see the design teams projects!  Until next time...Happy Scrapbooking!

An Imaginisce Fall Mini Album...Give Thanks!

Well, hello all!  It has been a very long time since I have created a mini album.  I love making them, truth is they are time consuming and that is something I haven't had much of lately, but I was itching to make have a look!

So, this mini album has an outside sleeve to protect the album.  This whole album was made using the oh so adorable Give Thanks Collection.

When you pull it out of the sleeve, this is the front cover.  I used so many fun goodies that come with this collection.  There are Adhesive Enamel Dots, Die-Cut Cardstock Shapes, Wood Buttons, Puffy Stickers and Dimensional Stickers.  I also fussy cut some of the images from the patterned paper. 

This collection is absolutely fabulous for all of your Fall creations.  I am excited to create more with it.  What will you make?  Make sure you check the Imaginisce Blog to see what the design team has been making.  See you soon and happy crafting!

Love You and a New JustNick Background Cut File!

Hello beautiful, crafty ladies!  Today I'd like to share with you another new and fun background cut file from JustNick!  
JustNick has created so many fun and unique backgrounds, all found in her JustNick Shop!  I love using them and almost always find my scrapbooking projects incomplete if I don't have some kind of background on it.  Of all the background cut files I've used while scrapbooking, I have to say, JustNick's have been the best!  So, here is what I did with the Clover Lace Background!
I wanted to add my own flair to this background cut file, so using brads, enamel dots, die cuts, chipboard stickers and stickers; I adhered them to the centers of the clover.  
I also used another one of the JustNick's cutfile...the Love You title.  I love how the title is part block and script letters.
So, have you checked out the JustNick background files lately?  In's a must!  There are so many unique and fun ones.  New cut files are uploaded weekly.  Check out the JustNick Shop and shop!  Also make sure you are checking the JustNick Blog frequently to see all of the amazing projects from the design team!  I hope you have enjoyed my project today!  Until next time...HAPPY CUTTING!

Fall Banner with Imaginisce's New Give Thanks Collection!

Happy Friday Imaginisce fans!  Today I have another fun project using the new Give Thanks Collection.  I am so in love with this collection and I am having the best time creating with it. So, this time around I decided to do a little home decor and make a Fall banner.

I love the Die Cut Cardstock Shapes that come with this collection.  As you can see I used the wreath one and decided to dress it up a little using my I-Rock and some Hot Rocks.

The patterned papers in this collection are so full of fun images and designs.  I love to fussy cut, so I did that here with the owl and limb.  Oh yeah...more Hot Rocks on the eyes of my cute!

This is the center of my banner.  I used the Dimensional Stickers to create the title of the banner and fussy cut the trees.  Look closely and you will see more Hot Rocks on the trees.

How fun is this one?  I love the cut out leaves and that adorable fox!

Here are more of the fun patterns found in this collection.  I love the little veggies. To make this pumpkin, I fussy cut some of the veggies as well as used some of the Die Cut Cardstock Shapes.

Aren't you just loving this collection...a must have for the Fall!?!  Thanks for stopping by to see my project.  I hope you have fun crafting with this new collection!  Until next time!

This collection is so full of goodies, my head is spinning.  This one is a must have for your scrappy collection. So, let me show you what I did.

This is my oldest boy Braden and I thought that this collection was perfect to use for some of his senior pictures I took last Fall.

I found this title in my Silhouette Library and new that it was just perfect. I used some of the patterned paper from this collection to cut it out. 

This collection has so many fun patterned papers in it.  I love creating embellishment clusters.  So, I cut out some of the trees from the patterned paper and added Puffy StickersPhrase StickersWood Buttons and Adhesive Enamel Dots.  I also used my I-Top and I-Rock to add more embellishments to the cluster.

JustNick Cut Files...Love this Moment!

I love the fact that the JustNick cut files are so versatile.  If you are anything like me, creating summer themed projects in the middle of winter and winter projects in the middle of how I roll.  I don't like to be restricted and I like to creating whatever theme I feel like doing at anytime of the year.  That's why I love the JustNick cut files...I can use them year round and make them work for any project.  Today I have an adorable layout featuring my beautiful daughter and our cute Rango, the Maltese.
For my title I used the Scripty Phrase cut file.  I love this cut file and I know that I can use it for many more projects.
I also used the Stems and Basic Hearts cut files to embellish.
I hope you have enjoyed my project and if you haven't played with the JustNick cut files...what are you waiting for?  Hop on over to the JustNick Store and try them out. New cut files are uploaded every week!  Until next time...happy crafting!

Imaginisce's New Happy Traveler Collection!

Hello and happy Wednesday!  I am so excited about Imaginisce's new collection Happy Traveler!  I love all the fun additions that come along with this collection...the Puffy Stickers and Wood Veneers are awesome! I have so may travel pictures that need to be scrapped, so I know this collection is going to get well used.

Our family took a trip to California back in 2012 and I haven't scrapped many of the photos. I know that I was waiting for the perfect collection and boy this one was it!

I love the bright colors of this collections as well as all of the fun patterns.  I used some of American Crafts Thickers for my title and then cut the 'adventure' part out using my Silhouette Cameo and the 6x6 Paper Pad from this collection.I used the 6x6 Paper Pad to make some boarder strips as well.

I love that this collection also has 3x4 cards that can be cut out to use as a project life style of scrapbooking, for journaling and even embellishing. You can see that I used mine for journaling. This collection also comes with some cute stamps...look at the cute balloon! Look closely and you can see a wood veneer and puffy fun!  I also used some Hot Rocks and the I-Rock for more embellishing.  

Well, what do you think?  What a fun collection right?  I am sure you have a bunch of photos from summer just waiting to be scrapped and this collection is perfect for them.  I already have so many ideas of what I would like to do with the Happy Traveler Collection that my head is swimming.  Time to dig into another project!  Until next time!

Always Summer with JustNick!

I am holding on to summer for as long as I can.  I don' t know about you, but I'm not ready for the colder weather of Fall and Winter.  Today I am going to share with you a layout that keeps me holding onto summer.
Back in January my husband and I went on a cruise to the Caribbean.  This beach happens to be on the island of Antigua.  This small island has some of the most beautiful beaches.  I had to keep pinching myself.  It was so hard to believe that I was soaking up the sun and enjoying the beach and water in January.  I wanted my layout to be bright and warm, just the way I felt in the sun.  I went with a non traditional beach layout and used the Open Triangles and Word 3 cut files.  Have a looksy!
I used the 'always' from the Word 3 cut file as part of my title because it's true...It's ALWAYS summer in the Caribbean.
Here are some close ups on the Open Triangles cut file I used.  I love that I can use the outside and the inside of this me more options I even added some embellishments to them.
I am having so much fun creating with the JustNick cut files found in the JustNick Store.  Go have a look for yourself.  There are lots of unique cut files you won't find anywhere else.  Also, make sure you are stopping by the JustNick Blog to see what the design team has been creating!  Thanks for stopping in and having a look at my layout. Until next time...HAPPY CUTTING!

Back To School Layout with Imaginisce!

Happy Friday Imaginisce fans!  Today I'm going to share with you another Back To School project.  This time I scrapped by beautiful daughter Janica.  She is a senior this year and my last one to finish school.  I am having so many mixed feelings about her being done.  The next stage in life for her will be collage and by that time, I 'm pretty sure both of my kids will be moved out.  I'm excited for this next stage in life, but sad at the same time because I will miss seeing them everyday.  I just love having them around.

I made this layout using my Silhouette Cameo, the Family Fun and Heartland Farms Collections and of I-Top!  I wanted to use a variety of patterned papers, so I cut the background design out with my Silhouette Cameo and then adhered the patterned papers to the back.  I think the colors of the patterned papers are perfect school colors and add so much to this layout.

This adorable title was also made using my Silhouette Cameo.  

Can you see that cute apple?  Yep, made with my I-Top and Brad Daddies.  I love the versatility of the I-Top and the fact that I can create custom embellishments with it.

As you can tell, I didn't do too much embellishing on my layout.  I felt that the background design with all of the patterned papers created a lot to look, making the layout embellished enough.

What Back to School projects have you created?  You know it is that time of year and Imaginisce has some fun collections that are perfect to create these projects! Make sure you are checking the Imaginisce Blog to see all of the fun projects the design team has been creating!  I hope you have enjoyed my layout  and it has inspired you!  Until next time!

Sweet 16 with JustNick Cut Files!

Happy Monday all!  I thought we should start the week off right with a layout featuring my gorgeous daughter.  Yes, she seems to be the subject of a lot of my projects lately, but she is so fun to scrap, so you will probably be seeing more of her.
This week we are focusing on using 3 cut files on our project.  Now, this was not hard at all.  All of the JustNick cut files are amazing and it was easy to find 3 that would work well together.  The cut files I used on this layout are the Chain Reaction BackgroundCard Sentiments 1 and the Basic in the JustNick Store this week!
How fun is that background?  I used some foam adhesive to give it a bit of dimension.  The Card Sentiments 1 were perfect for my title. the Basic Banner cut file is soooo cute!  I knew right away it would work well with the photo.
I love how this layout turned out and the cut files all worked so well together.  Who needs to spend a load of money on embellishments when you can use the JustNick cut files.  Thanks for stopping by today and I hope of inspired you to get crafty and have fun using the JustNick cut files.  Make sure you are visiting the JustNick Store weekly because there are always new cut files!  Until next time...happy crafting!

Fall Home Decor with Carta Bella!

I love simple, easy projects and today I have one a project for you that is just that.  today I am going to show you how I made these adorable 3x4 wood blocks using the new Fall Blessings Collection.

To start off, I bought these already cut 3x4 wood blocks at a local craft store, but you can use regular wood pieces and cut them down to the size you’d like.  You can actually use any size you want, but I liked this size.

Next, you will want to cut out your pieces of patterned paper according to the size of your wood blocks.  The new collection, Fall Blessings, come with 3x4 Journaling cards as well as 4x6 Journaling cards, so you can use those if you’d like.  I cut my 3x4 pieces of paper out using the 6x6 Paper Pad because I wanted to add Designer Dies and Stamps on mine.

Adhere your pieces of patterned paper to your wood blocks and sand the edges for a finished look.  You don’t have to sand your edges, I just like the way it looks. 

Now, pick out the Designer Dies and Stamps you’d like to use to embellish your blocks.  At the end of this blog post, I listed the supplies I used to make mine.

Here are some close ups of my embellished blocks!

Thanks for stopping in and I hope I have inspired you to get crafty with one of Carta Bella Paper’s newest paper collections.  I just wanted to also give a big thank you to the Carta Bella Paper Team and all of the fans that have supported me.  It has been fun creating for a wonderful company.  This is my last post with the 2014-2015 team and it has been a real pleasure!
