Happy December! I am here today to share with you my layout from the Stick it Down Single Page Sketch. When I saw the sketch I was puzzled, I wasn't sure how I was going to pull this off. So I looked at the other design team layouts and thought I would follow suit and use a cut file. As I cruised through the Silhouette Store and added about 12 wreath files to my cart it had then occurred to me that a few months back my friend sent me a home decor image of someone who folded papers around…

For this months Single Page Sketch on Stick it Down I decided to really think out side of the usual. As soon as I saw the sketch I was slightly confused by what I was going to do, then I saw a bag of 2018 confetti and "ta da" so here is my take on the sketch you can find here on the Stick it Down blog. For this layout I started with the Simple Stories "Congrats Grad" paper pack, I didn't like the bottom where it said "way to go" (I thought it would be too clashy with the…

For the June Sketch Challenge I decided to break the mold and do an all out "magical" layout. I pulled out all of the tricks in my book here and I really love the end result. I need to get out of my comfort zone more often because pages like this really make my heart happy! I am providing a link to the sketch here for you to play along! For my layout I turned the sketch 90 degrees because the photo I chose was not vertical. Once I make a move like this I tend to muddy the whole…

I am trying to get back into scrapbooking. I have so many photos and stories that I need to catch up on. To help I have found a new group Stick it Down who provides challenges and has given me that motivation to jump back into the rhythm. I used their May Single Page Sketch to create this layout of what life looks like for my teenager right now. I used their sketch found here to create sections of this pie chart representing things she loves: basketball, her music, art, friends and family, "I'm so bored" aka chores and school,…

Good afternoon! Today's bokeh technique is brought to you by the one and only, wonderful Stacy Buller. She made this card and I basically begged and pleaded with her to teach us all! So here we go... enjoy, and Thank you Stacy! <3 For this technique you will need: Watercolor paper 3-4 colors of Distress inks, including Picket Fence (although in the video that inspired this she used a Mixed Media white ink by Colorbox) 1- Cut your watercolor paper to the desired size. 2- Spritz paper with water making sure it is nice and wet. 3. Rub your distress…

I want to first explain how I use my planner, (if you don't want to read this story skip down to "So you have your planner, Now what?" I don't do it like most people. In 2012 I jumped on the Project Life bandwagon... by March I had fallen off. In 2013, I started it again with high hopes and good intentions. By late February I was doubled over in morning sickness and that was the end. So comes 2014... yes I got this! I didn't even make it through January! UGH. When the planner craze hit and I went…

Recently I came across a feed in my Facebook for those Chameleon color changing markers, and though I have been fighting the urge for over a year I finally caved in. Let me explain. When I was at CHA in January 2015, I was NOT into planners, stamping and coloring. I was NOT into or had even ever tried a Copic marker. I was a "stamp with black ink and call it good" kind of a card stamper. (yeah yeah... lazy I know) Since then that has all changed... so after many reviews and questions about products and "what do…

That's right you read that correctly... add videos to your layouts! We will be using QR codes which any smart phone or tablet has an app to read! I have been doing this for years and I am so thrilled to share my quick and simple process with you! Let's start with a question that I get asked A LOT.. "How do I know that in 10 years the QR code will still work?" Well a QR code is a series of dots that withhold information, specifically website information, much like a barcode in a store. If you use the…
