So. Many. Layouts.

Hello everyone!  I have been pretty busy lately and my crafting has taken a back seat.  I do have a few digital scrapbooking layouts to share with you.  I absolutely love that I can scrapbook from my computer.  It is not near the mess as if I were to pull out my Silhouette.  Plus, if I don't like something all I have to do is hit delete. How easy is that?  All of my layouts were designed using photoshop elements. 

Slowly but surely I am going to catch up on all of my scrapbooking!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Make a wish

Good morning everyone!  I am finally getting around to posting some of the cards I have made in the last few months.  This adorable shaker card was made for my sister's birthday.  I have containers of buttons that have been sitting in my craft stash.  I finally found a use for some of them.  I cut a circle with my silhouette out of Kraft and cut a ring to fit around it out of some patterned paper. I layered the card stock with acetate and some patterned paper with buttons and glitter in the middle.  The balloon die cuts came from My Creative Time and were cut with my Sizzix Big Kick.  I added some twine for the balloon strings and stitching.

Items Used
My Creative Time: Polka dot surprise and Stitched party dies
Pop dots
Sizzix big kick

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!

You & Me

Hello everyone!  I have a quick card to share with you this evening.  I made it earlier this month for my husband.  We celebrated 9 years of marriage!  Time flies, it is doesn't seem possible to have been married for 9 years already. :)  This card was super simple and easy to make.  I used dies from My Creative Time and everything was cut with my Sizzix Big Kick. I added some stitching around the edges and popped up the hearts. Easy peasy!

For your happily ever after

Hello!  I have a few cards I will post in the next few days that I made awhile back but haven't had the chance to share yet.  Lately I have been seeing some very cute shaker cards and they have inspired me to create some of my own. The card I am sharing with you today I made for a good friend of mine who recently got married.  It was super quick to make.  The adorable hearts were cut with my Vegabond from dies that came from My Creative Time.  As for the sentiment, it also is from one of Miss Emma's stamp sets and the sequins came from Neat and Tangled.

My Creative Time: Stitched sweethearts dies and Fun gift pocket sentiments
Acetate sheets:
Tim Holtz Vegabond

Peachy Keen Color Challenge

Hello everyone!  It has been forever since I have had any time to craft but recently I was able to sneak some time in.  Here is the color scheme given for the latest Peachy Keen Challenge:

For my card I wanted to do something quick and easy so I pulled out Miss Emma's Surprise Pop-out Card Die.  It is so fun to play with and makes really easy cards!  The adorable little bunny came from Peachy Keen and I colored it with Copics. All of the other dies I used also came from My Creative Time and were cut out with my Sizzix Vagabond.  I added some glossy accents and chalk to the bunny and put the whole thing together.  Easy, peasy!

Items used:
Peachy Keen Stamps: March 2013 SOTM
Copic Markers
Sizzix Vagabond
Glossy Accents

Halloween LO

Hello everyone!  One of my resolutions this year is to do more scrapbooking!  I am so far behind it is ridiculous.  Now that I have started digital scrapping I have cranked out more layouts than I have in a long time.  I am making progress!  Tonight I have two very simple LO's to share with you done with a project life template.  So easy to put together!  I designed everything in photoshop elements using Lori Whitlock's Life Templates and Sahlin Studio's Project Mouse: Halloween.  So easy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful night!

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone and happy 2014!  2013 was a crazy year for our family but despite every challenge there is a lot we have to be thankful for.  I am looking forward to the new year and everything it has in store!  I have a few digital layouts that I want to share with you today.  I designed these weeks ago but I had them printed and framed as Christmas gifts so I am just now getting them posted.  Everything was designed using photoshop elements 12 and I had 12x12 prints made at Mpix.  It was my first attempt doing something digital like this as a gift and I have to say they went over pretty well.  They made perfect gifts for our family!
