Just Lovely

Hello, here's some details about my "Just Lovely" layout. I used the scrap-room's April Stamp to create the layered flower next to my title spot. I just love the doily shapes. And I used these Copics to color in the chipboard letters Bare Maya Road chipboard letters (thanks Kim!) Makenzie loves to wear Aoi Dai on Chinese New Years Day. Actually, she would be fine wearing it everyday. She's looking too grown up for me.

My second layout using the My Minds Eye line. I love the colors.

And a simple card.

Hope you have a great Friday!

Almost forgot

I almost forgot to share the rest of my March gallery layouts.

The cousins all together last August in Carthage.

My son trying on his big sister's assortment of headbands.

And a few cards.

For the Record

Echo Park's for the record line is beautiful. I love all the stickers. Here's my process for creating the month in review recipe card.

First I will usually try to sketch out my page. I make sure to write down all the names of the paper before I cut off the ends and pitch them.

Then I start choosing the paper finding the sides that coordinate the best. I always have my ruler handy and write down the measurements along the way.

The most time consuming part for me is always choosing the photos and printing them out.

Got out my cricut using the Base Camp cartridge for the title.

Home Gallery

Hello friends,

I've had a sick kid at home and family in town so been MIA. Here was my inspiration post over at the scrap-room last week.

After spending so much time on your layouts, wouldn't it be nice to have a spot where it can be viewed and appreciated longer before sticking them inside your albums? I fell in love with this idea of creating a wall art display when I visited Scrapfunattic, my local scrapbooking store, and saw how wonderful it looked on theirs.

So I went to my local Target to purchase a curtain rod & curtain hooks. The package of clip it up hooks was from my lss.

And with the help of my husband, this was the result:

A cute home decor item to display all of my recent layouts! And it's so easy to switch them out from month to month once I get bored with them. Just unclip and stick in the new ones.
