DIY Scrapbooking, Mini Album,Project Life Kit

There are a couple of scrapbook companies that offer great monthly subscriptions for the everyday scrapbooker. I to love seeing the reveal photos of the next months kits and what products they incorporated in with that months theme, but I am one who loves to use what I have and get creative and not go out and spend a bunch on products.

I will admit though…I can do some damage on some online shopping. Who’s with me?? So this is when I got the idea to do a little DIY Scrapbooking kit. I put together some papers, embelishments, and stickers. Everything in the kit goes well together, the colors and patterns all compliment each other.

So I encourage you to shop your stash at home or go online and look at the clearance items. Sure it maybe a product that’s been out for awhile and it’s not new but I am sure you can get creative with anything you put our mind to.


Have a blessed day friends!


12×12 Layout-Maggie Holmes & BasicGrey

Hi Friends!! Today I am documenting this adorable picture of my daughter. I feel like this layout was a little different than my usual layouts. I went ahead and added some flowers and well as some circles (they look like antique dishes to me) and I feel like those two items wouldn’t usually go together but I made it work and love how the layout turned out!


I recently went to my Tuesday Morning and bought this basicgrey 12×12 paper pad. I love the vibrant yellow background with the pinks and aqua colors. I hate that basicgrey is stepping out of the scrapbooking world, they will be forever missed!

I of course used some gold glitter heart thickers as well. I love that gold is making a come back!


I also used basicgrey stickers from the sunkissed collection. I hope you all enjoy and please watch how a put this layout together by clicking the link!

Project Life- Hello Friend

These pictures of my daughter and I at the Library were really colorful and bright. I didn’t really have any PL cards that went with the pictures, so I decided to make my own PL cards for this layout. maggie pl1

This is when having a good collection of stamps comes in handy. I used a shimelle sunburst stamp to peek behind the Maggie Holmes card and I used some clear cloud stickers from my local craft store.

I love coming up with my own design on layouts. I like how I can make good use out of my stash of scrapbook stuff and it’s something of my own. I hope you all enjoy and click the link for a video of the process of this PL layout.


Echo Park- That’s My Boy!

Hey Everyone! I am back with another 12×12 layout. The picture I wanted to document was of my son being goofy and it was just to cute not to scrapbook. I am using Echo Park That’s My Boy Collection, along with some Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers and Dear Lizzy Cork Thickers. chanse

I really love how this layout turned out! I left some space to the left to journal about that day and this picture. If you would like to watch the process video and maybe some other videos, click the link 

Best Buddies

Mixed media kind of day. I am using a photo of my kids Valentines party and in the background of the photo is the alphabet and I wanted to incorporate that in my layout, so i used my alphabet stencil and started playing around.


This was also my first time using my Silhouette Cameo Machine. I have to say I was a little nervous to use this thing..I didn’t even know where to start and I didn’t want to mess anything up, but I gave it a whirl and boy I’m glad I did! This machine is an addiction now! No more scissors and I can literally alter a cut file and make it my own if I want. LOVE!


Products that I used are Dear Lizzy- Fine and Dandy Collection. Hope you enjoy!

Mother’s Day Bloom Collection Project Life

I was so happy to have product left over from my 12×12 layout, that I couldn’t wait to create something else. I am using the 12×12 PL layout form again. I like this size of a layout when I have multiple pictures or product that I am wanting to use up.

So I decided to document my Mothers Day from last year. The Picture and the Products went so well together. I was so pleased with how it turned out!

Bathing Beauty..Maggie Holmes Bloom

This collection is so beautiful! It reminds me of a secret garden with a whimsical feel. I adore this collection and I think it’s perfect for spring.

I recently made a purchase of this collection and I received part of the order but the other half was on back order, due to the American Crafts warehouse relocating. Long story short I didn’t get my full order in the end, so I made do with what I had. Hope you enjoy!

Highlights Of The School Year.

I had taken a bunch of pictures of my son on his first day of kindergarten and I really wanted to document them. I decided that a 12×12 Project Life layout would be best for all of these photos. I think the layout is so fun and inviting.

I used a little bit of everything on this layout but I really enjoy the mustache. I bought that at hobby lobby on the sale rack, Anyways I hope you enjoy and have a blessed day my friend.
