Stuck?! Sketch Challenge

The sketch from Stuck?! Sketches called for two pictures but the floral Heidi Swapp paper I wanted to use was a bit “busy” so I used a Heidi Swapp saying instead!

Here is my layout:

Memorable Seasons May DT Kit

I am having a lot of fun with my DT kit from Memorable Seasons this month.  It’s Heidi Swapp’s September Skies.  Here’s a double page layout from Spring Break that I made of us skiing up at Mt. Bachelor.

Memorable Season February 2015

I just finished my first month at Memorable Seasons as part of the design team.  I loved the kit I was able to work with, Echo Park Lucky in Love.  Here are the projects I created (some I have already posted but some are new).  Enjoy!


One of the highlights of the San Diego Zoo was seeing the Giant Panda and the Red Panda.  I created this spread using my Echo Park Lucky in Love DT kit from Memorable Seasons.  It was also part of a challenge that I hosted on Memorable Seasons (click here if you would like to play along).

Muse Challenge #103

The current Muse challenge had a cool circular card.  It was surprisingly easy to make.  I stuck with the original shape of the Muse card but added more circular layers.  Rather than a Valentine’s card I made it a thank you note.  Here is the Muse Challenge #103 and my take on it.

Since this card is clearly covered in patterned paper, I also plan to enter it in Craftyhazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge!

Picture This! Challenge Blog Design

As part of their first ever Design Team call Picture This! requested that a layout be made using the following Picture This! formula:

 (1 photo + frame + flower cluster)

This layout came together quickly and I am very happy with how it turned out.  Lately, at Joann’s they have had “grab bags” of supplies (for under five dollars).  I was able to use the flowers and the smaller sheets of papers from one of these bags.  The wooden embellishments are Studio Calico Laser-Cut Wood Veneer Shapes (something Joann’s just started carrying) and the 12×12 sheet of paper is Cloud 9 Design.

Envelope Mini Album

I had some left over floral little girl paper, that I made into a mini album.  I cut the envelopes and then used a circular punch to notch out a spot to be able to pull the pictures out.  I also used thin chipboard “coasters” and covered them with pictures to put in the envelopes.
