Learning to Pedal layout


Here is another page from last weekend. The challenge in my group is to use polka dot paper.

I used Carta Bella’s Rough & Tumble collection to make this page of my nephew learning how to pedal his Thomas the Train bike.


No sketch was used so it took me awhile to arrange my papers lol.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Crazy About You layout

Good morning!

I was able to scrapbook over the weekend and made 5 pages. My scrap group has a lot of great challenges this month (as they do every month!) and I was motivated to get some pictures to paper.

This page is for the Grand challenge (grandchildren or pics of grandparents and grandchildren). I used two baby pictures of my nephew with my parents.  


I used Sketch #164 from Sketches in Thyme and Echo Park’s The Story of Our Family collection.

Here is the sketch~


Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!

Storybook and More Stories cards

Good morning!

I needed to make several cards for swaps and used one sketch (from Page Maps) as my starting point, adding in the theme for the swaps to each one.

I used Avery Elle’s Everyday paper pad and the Storybook and More Stories stamp sets. Love the adorable little animals!




This last one is my favorite of the bunch :)

The blue borders were cut with Avery Elle’s Dotted Borders die set. The tags and bows were cut with Mama Elephant’s Tags a Lot and Basic Creative Cuts dies. Not sure I assembled the bows right but I think they look okay.

The animals and flowers were colored with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Cards from Scraps

Good morning!

I didn’t realize how long it has been since I last posted. Busy month here!

A week or two ago I needed to make a card with scraps for a swap and came up with two designs.

The first one uses the Abstract Cover Up die from MFT. I ran it through my big shot a bunch of times with bits and pieces of Basic Grey Origins. I ended up with so many pieces that I made three of these backgrounds!


I cut up some card stock scraps with MFT’s Fresh Cut Florals dienamics and added a sentiment from MFT’s All Smiles stamp set.

This second card is similar to some I made years ago. I made a background with several squares and ran it through my SU Square Lattice embossing folder. Then I cut the background with a die from Spellbinders Labels Eight set.


I cut more card stock scraps using my new Simon Says Stamp Stitched Daisies dies and added a sentiment from MFT’S Blue Skies stamp set.

Have a great day!
