Easy decorating for the holidays!

I used an 8×8 canvas (I got it at the dollar store!) and covered it with Crate Papers using Terrifically Tacky Tape to make sure it stayed put. Add a few Crate chipboard embellishments and those awesome Pink Paislee glitter letters and voila! I absolutely love how this turned out, it’s my favourite decoration in the house!

And why did I call it “Happy Season”? I always tell my husband I love this time of year because everyone seems happy. So I thought it was fitting! 🙂

Have a great week everyone!

Cosmo Cricket Card

I made this card using the August kit. Fifteen minutes from start to finish. I wanted the title to really pop, so I used the reverse side of a JilliBean Soup journaling card; the white is a good contrast to the papers. A few matching letter stickers, a punched border and a strip of stripe paper was all the was needed for the front.

As for inside the card, well, easy-breezy:

I think it’s a good masculine card, don’t you?

All supplies from the August kit except for the mini letters (red and orange) and the medium letters (red).


Don’t be afraid to cut!

On the following layout, made with the awesome August kit, I used some of the papers as a title and as embellishments. The title was made from a strip of a Cosmo Cricket paper that I then cut up in 3 parts. The traffic lights were part of the October Afternoon journal cards. I simply took my time and cut it out.

There you have it: don’t be afraid to use your scissors!


Using template collages

I apologize for being late. Today’s my 8th anniversary and I think I got distracted!

In the following layout, I used a collage template offered for free on the Scrapbook Etc. site. They come in 8.5×11 and 12×12. There is also an easy-to-follow tutorial if you are new at this.

I actually turned mine into a 5×5 picture and had it printed as-is.

Go ahead, give it a shot!


Scraps Card

What kind of person scrapbooker would I be if I gave you a challenge and didn’t do it myself? If you need a little reminder, check out my last post.

Since I didn’t get the chance to play with the July kit, I decided to go ahead and make a card out of the scraps I had on my scrap table. I had just finished a layout with Nikki Sivils papers, so I went ahead with that.

A great way to use up your scraps is to use your punches. Here, I used a butterfly punch by Martha Stewart.

So, how about you? Did you take on my challenge?


The kit that keeps on giving!

Yes, I am still working with the June kit, Amusement Park! It’s such a fun and colourful kit, perfect for summer photos like the one used here. were you lucky enough to get your hands on this kit before it sold out?!

The papers (except the grid paper), the chipboard numbers and the green edge are from the kit. The rest is from my personal stash.

I wanted to show you a close-up of my layout. I added some Diamond Glaze to the “bubbles”, I tought it worked great with a pic of my daughter in the pool!

Enjoy your day!
