Once Upon.........and Scrap-Tastic

Here is another layout using the awesome June kit from Scrap-Tastic!!


I used the sketch and journalling challenge from Once Upon a Sketch. This is the first time that I've played along but I'm sure it won't be my last. :)

I added some handstitching along the edges to frame it all.
The tag from MME provided the perfect title.


Isn't that flocked paper gorgeous???

I've been creating with the June Scrap-Tastic kit and having a great time! It's not in the store yet but I will let you know when it is. :)

For this layout I used a sketch by Liz over at the Scrappiest. She has wonderful sketches and I love using them.


My daughter was keeping the bugs away from all the sweets at my Mom's 80th birthday part. Hahaha!


I cut out some of the flowers from the MME paper to use as embellishments on my journal spot.

Aren't the colours so pretty?

Echo Park Love

My favourite manufacturer at the moment (actually for quite awhile now) is Echo Park!

I wanted to share some of my projects using A Walk In The Park Collection.

I needed to make some little gifts for the ladies in my fitness class so I came up with these Post it Note Holders.

They came together so quickly using the papers and stickers. Here are the closeups.

This next layout is of my niece and her miracle baby Ryan. I was excited that Echo Park actually chose it as their Facebook Fan Friday winner. This totally made my day!!!

Little Miracle

The flowers made from the patterned papers turned out so adorable!

Scrapbook Star May Kit

The May kit is now in the store so take my advice and get over there quick! Here are the rest of the projects that I made with the kit.

I loved how this card turned out using one of the tags. I embossed the sentiment which is from the myStampBOX set Straightforward. I added some Stickles to the flower and topped the tag off with the gorgeous ribbon.

This next layout uses a photo of my parents at my daughter's wedding. It was such a proud day for them. The first grandchild to be married.

I used the sketch #118 from The Scrappiest. Liz has amazing sketches.

So Proud

This flower was made using the sticky backed canvas that you get in the kit and lots of glitter of course!

I broke out the Stickles for this page too.


On my next page I thought that all the floral papers went so well for a picture of my Mom at her 80th birthday garden party.

For this layout I used sketch #155 from Creative Scrappers.

I used the sticky back canvas to make my leaves. I love the texture it gives.


Here is another card that I made with the kit. I thought the lace frame was perfect to use on a card.

I love how this flower turned out with the sticky back canvas too!

Another cute little card where the lace frame just framed (haha pun intended) the sentiment perfectly.

Scrap-Tastic's Primalicious

Scrap-Tastic's May kit is chock full of Prima goodies....hence the name Primalicious.
I've already shared the 2 cards that I made with the kit and now I want to share the 3 layouts I created. I do have to tell you that I still have tons of product left to play with.

I have heard that there are only 2 kits left so you had better get over to the store quick!!! Here is the link.

For my first layout I used a photo of my daughter Amy and my niece Teri-Lynn as her maid of honour on Amy's wedding day. I cut out the center of the paper and popped up the outside as a frame.

I used glossy accents to look like dew drops.

I loved making that flower as an embellishment.

Glossy Accents;Perfect Pearls;Stampendous stamp;Doily;MM button

My next layout uses a photo of my Mom and my nephew Brandon as a baby.

I fussy cut some butterflies and popped them up onto the butterflies. Love the dimension. I also drew some circles and then hand-stitched around them I love to do this. :)

DMC embroidery floss; Nestabilities; Stickers

My friends from highschool and I still get together at least a few times a year. We have a close friendship that will never end.
This layout uses an old photo of us. Check out those hair dos!! LOL!!

I did some extra stamping right onto my page. Love that bird cage!!

M.S. punch;Perfect Pearls;MME stamp;Memento ink

Thanks for letting me share and thanks Becky for a gorgeous kit!

Mother's Day

Have you made your Mother's Day card yet?

My Dad turns 85 on Tuesday so I just had to make him a card for his big day!
I used Sketch #113 from Card Patterns and the latest kit from ScrapTastic which is full of Prima goodies. Of course I used a stamp from myStampBOX.
