LOAD14 – Valentine’s Day 2016

We had a nice quiet Valentine’s Day at home and since today’s prompt is food, I decided to scrapbook our day. Not sure when I’ve scrapbooked pictures so quickly!


I used the February Sketch from Paper Issues and it’s my second entry for my group’s Old/New challenge. I mixed Basic Grey’s Sugar Rush from 2009 and J’Adore from a year or two ago.

I added hearts using an MFT stencil and distress inks in the upper left corner. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil with tiny hearts on the bottom right.


Here is the sketch~

Have a great night!



LOAD8 – New Toy

Today was a color prompt – red & white from the Canadian flag. 

I came across these pictures from my stepdad’s birthday and I had the Carta Bella It’s a Celebration set aside to use with them. I added in a few pops of color with the balloons to keep it fun. 

Page design is all mine. I am trying to challenge myself to not use a sketch once in awhile. 

Fun fact: I have scrapped 33 photos this month and I am only 8 days into this challenge. Hoping to at least double that number by month’s end. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Warming up for LOAD

I did a silly thing last week…I signed up for LOAD216. The goal is to make one layout a day. There are daily prompts but they don’t have to be used. I’m hoping to use some though since the theme is Around the World in 29 days and I have oodles of vacation pictures to scrapbook!


Today I made this layout of my nieces. I’ve had these pictures and papers set aside for a least a year and a half. I still have plenty of the paper left. Glad to have the pictures glued down to paper now.  I used a sketch from one of my scrappy groups, it was a fun one. I liked adding all the little bits down the right hand side.

Matchup with a Twist #3

I have two creations to share tonight! I had hoped to do more but spent time reading and doing other things.


First up is the card for my Matchup with a Twist – today is Technique Tuesday and Authentique with a twist of background stamps. I used a birthday background stamp from MFT Stamps.


2016 Card 3 - Technique Tuesday Amaryllis


I joined the Greenhouse Society stamp club from Technique Tuesday back in the fall, this is the October stamp – Amaryllis. So pretty!  I found several of these stamps during a summer visit to a store in Rhode Island and decided I had to join the club. The flowers are beautiful each and every month!


I used SCS543 for the card layout~




Project #2 is a layout! I’ve had this Authentique Gathering paper sitting out with this photo for over 2 years lol – since today’s paper company is Authentique, it was meant to be to finally scrapbook it!  This is my niece Emily.
