Gimme Some Love *The ScrapRoom*

Several years ago when my sister and niece were here visiting from Tennessee, the girls decided to make valentines projects. My sister (not interested in crafting) decided to goof around with the kids, giving hugs and kisses much to Matthews dismay! Now that my kids are older, finding Valentine photos is getting harder and harder. So I pulled out these goofy photos and scrapped away. 

The ScrapRoom's February Flavor of the month kit has the most adorable valentines kits in it! The oxox line is one of my favorites, because the pops of mint green. Most valentines paper is made up of the traditional pinks, reds and white and you know me and colors, the brighter the better :)

I had a lot of fun cutting out hearts with my  Cricut. The Doodlebug and Paisley cartridges have several shapes of hearts available.

I can't seem to do a layout without spray ink or splattering lately.It adds so much texture!

Aren't these layered heart stickers perfection?!

I finally used washi tape on a layout! The kit comes with an entire roll.

Full sheets of Cosmo Cricket letter stickers & October Afternoon journaling spots.

Hearts, hearts and more hearts!

Journaling. I'm really loving had writing my journaling and not having to mess with the computer.

Come back and visit throughout the month for more layouts from The ScrapRoom's February kit!

The Good Life and Beauty and the Beast *The ScrapRoom* (Out for Publication)

I couldn't resist scrapping some more of these photos of my son playing his electric guitar! I love his "Rock N Roll" t-shirt and improvised fingerless gloves, "To keep my guitar clean Mom!". Not for the cool factor I'm sure :) I used a sketch from my favorite sketch designer Allison Davis and the The ScrapRoom January Flavor of the month kit.

and the sketch

Unfortunately Sketch Support is no longer an active site so you are unable to access the sketches.

I'm really in love with splattering right now!

The bright graphic patterns of "The Good Life" by Fancy Pants are right up my alley.

It only took me 3 tries on the Cricut with the United We Stand cartridge to get the right sized star :)

The Traditions line by Carta Bella was a little harder for me to work with as my style has moved away from soft, traditional prints but this photo of my son and his (no longer :( ) girlfriend had the perfect color scheme.

More Cricut cuts from the Jasmine, Stamped and Flower Shoppe cartridges. Somehow I failed to do any close ups of this layout. Used Glossy Accents on the "Beauty" part of the title. More misting and inking to complete the feminine feel.

It's almost time for the February reveal! I'd better get on the ball!

Summertime…and the Living is Easy *The Scraproom* (Out for Publication)

I have been delinquent in my duties as a ScrapRoom designer and haven’t posted all of my January layout s yet Sad smile. Life has a habit of getting in my way! This layout is one of my favorites for the year. I love the bright graphic feel and cheery colors of the “Snap” line from Simple Stories.

The coordinating sticker sheet makes embellishing a “Snap”, I’m so punny today Smile

Used the  Cricut font from Nate’s ABC’S and offset the shadow.

Instead of inserting 3 photos on the strip I added the smile sticker next a photo of my friend Lyn and I.

More sticker fun! Some 3L foam square added to the camera for some extra “Snap”.

Love the numbered journaling spots!
This was a great way to document an awesome collection of summer photos. Not so many of Matthew, thanks to his aversion to the camera right now. He’ll be sorry later when he can’t find photos including him in all of the fun things we did that summer Sarcastic smile

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Us *The ScrapRoom*

I love the recent trend of having photo booths at events! Reminds me of when I was a teenager and squeezing into the one at the mall or fair :) Mariel and two of her cousins had a blast in this one at Brian and Kathryn's wedding. "The Good Life" from Fancy Pants was the perfect line to compliment this photo strip!


The kit comes with a chipboard sheet of  versatile frames and other cute icons.

Us Closeup

The acrylic words fit the feeling I was aiming for perfectly...it's all about family!

Sisters *The ScrapRoom*

I'm sure everyone will agree that funerals are very sad events... but I feel that they are also a celebration of sorts. A chance to celebrate the deceased persons life, their release from earthly bonds, their ascension into Gods hands and a reason to get together as family. A lot of times this family hasn't been seen in months or years! This was the case at my Mother's funeral. My aunt, cousins, sister and stepsisters came from North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee to be with us.

Needless to say we got a little goofy and decided to make a sister pyramid (after a couple of cocktails I might add). I love this picture, red eye and all!

I'm in love with this collection by Pink Paislee. Teal and grey with a pop of yellow, so pretty! The frames are from The Good Life by Fancy Pants. This kit from The ScrapRoom is one of my favorites!

Haven't been able to create without spray ink lately. A big flower from Basic Grey and little ones from Bella. 

Border punch love :)

Tab punch and Basic Grey letter stickers.

More layouts using The ScrapRoom's January Flavor of the Month Kit coming soon. Thanks for stopping by!
