Full of Love



Good afternoon, ya'll! It is THURSDAY! Yes! The week is passing by fast! Always loving the weekends cause there is NO SCHOOL! No school for my babies- which means MORE PLAYTIME for us all! Love it when they're home with me! <3

Full of Love

I have always been a picture taking kind of gal, but a massive procrastinator when it comes to actually printing them out, placing them in albums, or scrapbooking them for my albums. So- I've been trying to catch up, but that process is never easy, because I can't seem to STOP taking pictures and would NEVER stop taking pictures. lol. Anyone having this problem? So... starting at almost the very beginning (where my kids were born) seem to be a better less overwhelming start to getting photos in albums. That explains why I have been scrapbooking nothing but baby photos even though my kids are much bigger now. :( Plus- I just miss them being tiny. :*(



For this layout, I'm pretty much using all things from American Crafts- Shimelle "True Stories" collection. I started out with a mixture of trimmed patterned papers layered on top of white card stock. I did a little bit of stitching. Added some dimension to my background by using a stencil from the same collection and modeling paste. I added my photo and a few bits and pieces of embellishments also from the same collection. I finished up my layout with a few wood veneers and gems.

I absolutely love the outcome and the picture is one of my favorite of my youngest. :) Those suckable lips.. hehehe.

Hello & Noted



Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed weekend.. I have a layout to share with you today featuring my hubby when he was a child! LOVE! :)

Hello & Noted

I started out with The Girls Paperie paper. I kept it simple and only used spray mist to add more color to my background. I added my photo topped with a gold glittered frame from Heidi Swapp.



The rest of my layout was created by playing around die cuts from We R Memory Makers. I added a few wood veneers to bring more depth to my layout along with dimensional adhesive.

Dude. Cool!



Good morning everyone! It's mid-week now and I hope you all are doing fantastic! I've added some more items to my ETSY store: cards, planner, and planner charms (https://www.etsy.com/shop/paperANDi)!

Back to crafty life- I have a layout to share with you today featuring my lovely son and some awesome stacked trees! We live in a pretty forested area- so they have to clear out a few trees before they start their project..

Dude. Cool!

I started out with a pretty settled background. Kept it a little simple with very minor patterned paper, but had a great time playing around with different color mist.


I added my photo with the matted white card stock. The rest of my layout was created by adding a whole lot of tiny die cuts and a few bigger pieces of die cuts.



My last step was to add bits of wood veneers and some minor journaling. Hope my layout gave you some inspiration! And, I hope you have a fantastic rest of the week! God bless you all, always!
