Happy Times Bible Journaling

I'm a little obsessed with Bible Journaling on Pinterest these days, so this weekend I've been working on setting up my own bible to get started.  For a while, I've been wanting to do something to get a little more focused on my own faith and having this wonderful mix of creativity thrown in is something that I am just so in love with! 

So anyway, I managed to score a couple of #free packs of the Happy Times paper from Close to My Heart (there's still time to get get one (or a few!) for yourself, just click here! I ADORE these papers - there's a wonderful mix of foil and "ombre" shades and delicate patterns, so so pretty!!

I cut down a sheet of the floral pattern to print the text, and used my Cricut to cut out the tabs - I just kind of winged the size and I was very happy with the finished product! :)  I'm so excited to get started on the actual study!

Thank you for stopping by & happy crafting! 

Sangria love!

...Not the boozy kind, though that one's not bad either <wink>, however, as every scrapbooker knows - there are always THOSE pictures you don't scrap UNTIL you find the "match-made-in-heaven" paper to go with them, right??  well, these are it for me!
I have no shame in admitting I recently purchased the Sangria Workshop On The Go Kit, just for our Fall Festival pictures from ahem.. a couple of years ago.. SO anyhoo, I was itching to play with those gorgeous patterned papers and I found this fabulous 2-page Sketch challenge at Scrapbook.com, so off to town I went!

aren't they just perfect?? (my kids too of course! lol..) but seriously, one of the reasons I LOVE the WOTG kits is because they include everything you could possibly need to create several layouts (which I will be totally using since I have a TON more pictures from this outing!) and of course, have plenty of scraps left over for cards and/or embellishments!

Speaking of embellishments...

Do you see that gorgeous banner? It's part of the stamp set that's included in the kit!  Isn't that awesome! I cut the shape out using the Artistry Cricut Cartridge collection.  I LOVE this cartridge - and by the way, you don't even have to wait to get your hands on these gorgeous shapes because they are available for download  you still get all the extras shipped but you can start using your Cricut images right away! How cool is that??!

I can't wait to share some more pages using this kit!  Thanks for stopping by! 

Anybody swamped with it all??

I am just swamped with photos, the ones I've printed, the ones yet to be printed, albums, pages etc!! it's just crazy and killing my inspiration to get pages done!  Luckily I just ordered some albums to get everything sorted out an back on track!  Time to get #AllTheAlbums done :)

If you've got piles and boxes, or disk drives full of pics, take advantage of this fab sale from Close To My Heart!

Boys & butterflies!

I think I mentioned I've recently developed a huge #heidiswapp addiction??  I'm beside myself that not only do these photos match my Creative Memories paper perfectly but this layout was totally Heidi embellishment-worthy! lol.. 

First layout for the February Cricut challenge on scrapbook.com and layout #7 for me for 2016.. only 93 more to go! :)

TFL!! xoxo

more paper!

Is anybody as #erincondren obsessed as I am??   I finally bit the bullet last month and got myself a planner, I've been drooling over all the cute stickers and labels and washi tape galore all over etsy so here I am now officially salivating over my very first February spread!

I also made my own stickers using my silhouette - since I have some cute clipart I may try my hand at making a sheet to share! :) 

More pages to share soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Nothing brightens up cold and dreary days quite like summer pictures!  I finally decided to crack open a Summer Kit from Creative Memories that I've been hoarding for years :P  It's just so perfect for these pool pictures of my little Kieran that I couldn't resist!  
This layout is also perfect for 2 of my challenges on scrapbook.com  - The Hoarders challenge (not even kidding), and the Cricut Challenge as that cute sun was cut using my nifty gold Cricut!  I'm putting that bad boy to work these days- I actually have to say, it is ideal if you have to scrap somewhat quietly, like I do, since the bulk of my layouts get done while my boss (said child in the picture) sleeps.  As much as I adore my Silhouette, the Cricut is SO much quieter, so really, I am LOVING it these days!

I added the accents form the kit using dimensionals and it just really makes everything come together so nicely, I think! Simple, quick and super cute, yes??

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Scrappin' :) 

Happy Scrappy 2016 & Challenges!

I'm kicking off 2016 with determination to make a dent in the billion pictures that need to get scrapped! I've jumped in on a couple of challenges in my trusty Scrapbook.com, and I'm pumped!  I'm shooting for a volume challenge of 100 layouts, with a few other challenges thrown in! (no pressure.. HA!).  Here's a quick LO I made today with a random picture I found of boy #1.. sigh, I wish he was still this small and not so mouthy as a 16 yr. old...teenagers...grrr. :)

 I used paper from the Radiant collection from Authentique and paired it with a couple of embellishments from my scrapbooking goddess Heidi Swapp - I've always been such a huge fan of her products, but lately she's knocking it out of the park with the bold colors and gold foil - Im obsessed!!!  

Well there you have it! One down, 99 to go lol..  Thanks for looking and here's to a happy scrappy 2016!
