"Flour Child"

With the holiday baking season quickly approaching, I made this layout. Plain cardstock is Bazzill, and patterned paper is from the Sweet Treat paper pack. The Baker was made with Everyday paper dolls cartridge, and the letters were also made using the Cricut. The oven mit and copper pot were brads I found at Archivers, unsure of the maker.


This layout is a simple, cute halloween alternative to the many spookier ones I've seen. My daughter Ava was Minnie Mouse this year, just plain cute! :) The orange prism paper is DCWV, as well as the plain colored cardstock. The patterned paper is K & Company. Some black and white polka dot ribbon used as a header for the three pictures on the bottom, along with fabric flowers-manufacturer unknown.

When is enough enough?

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this...but "Can I really ever have enough paper?" This picture doesn't do justice to actually how much paper I have now, probably twice that amount. I even had custom made 100% real wood paper towers made to hold my collection because everything else would begin to bow in the middle from the weight of the paper. I'm a sucker for the 9.99 sale for paper stacks, pretty much regardless of the brand. I need to buy paper singly, even though it might be more expensive per page, I won't get stuck with paper I won't use-and lets face it, about 50% of the paper in the stacks I usually separate and let my two year old daughter use for coloring!

Social Butterfly

This is a fun 2 page layout that I created with alot of my butterfly scraps. There is everything here from plain cardstock, patterned paper, glittered paper, Chipboard embellishments, Paper and fabric flowers, patterned ribbon, and rub-on flower letters. A little busy, but fun to look at!

Purple Passion

Another layout inspired by the flowers at my Grandfathers resort, which we made our annual family trip to this summer. My daughter and her cousins enjoyed all the fresh air, fishing, swimming, and of course each other. Solid cardstock is DCWV, not positive on the patterned paper. Paper flowers are prima flowers, vellum flowers are DCWV.

Summer Vacation

This was a fun layout I created of my daughter and her friends over this summer. The paper dolls were created using the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge, and attempted to make the dolls' swimwear match the patterns of the girls as close as possible. Patterned paper used was from My MindsEye, and DCWV. Plain cardstock is Bazzill. The names were also made using the Cricut machine.
