Little Dreamer – did someone say UNICORNS????

Holy Scrap-a-Moly!!  You guys – I totally hit a wall this weekend.  My body literally revolted and would not let me get out of bed.  You know how it is always so easy to tell others that they need to take of themselves while you continue running at full steam?  Well, for reals, I am living proof that you can only push yourself so hard before you collapse.  Friends, if any of you are in the same boat as I have been – please take some time to let yourself relax.  It’s so much nicer when you make the choice to chill rather than being forced to stay in bed!

I hope that ya’ll had a better weekend than I did – although, I do have to say that I had a great Mother’s Day!  I was almost brought to tears when my daughter walked into the restaurant with the card they decorated for me.  Aren’t they just the sweetest????

So – now that I am feeling much better and have a renewed focus on self-care, I would love to show you my latest workshop – Little Dreamer!

I have to admit that this kit is not something I would typically purchase (although, really – who doesn’t love a magical unicorn?).  So, I really tried to create bold layouts that will work for many different occasions.  With all the purples and pinks, this kit is a little more on the feminine side – but you can always use more of the blues and eliminate the pink to get a more gender nuetral look for a couple layouts.

Two Page Scrapbook Layout Some Kinda Wonderful Best Friends Today Happy Teen Girls Life Spring Page Kit #scraptabulousdesigns #ctmhsomekindawonderful #pagekits #scrapbooking #cricutexplore

Some Kinda Wonderful – NEW Scrapbook kit!

Happy Spring, ya’ll!!  I am so excited to watch things bloom and spend more time outside. I love Spring – the beauty, the fresh start, new smells, and the sunshine.  After the rain and snow we had here this week, I have my fingers crossed that winter will *finally* leave!!!

Some Kinda Wonderful is a great transition kit for the season!  There is lots of green, which will be perfect for outdoor photos.  The blue and gray will pick up hints of the sky, while the black helps to keep the bright colors grounded.  Super cute and trendy!  If you aren’t a fan of hot pink, the opposite side of the paper is a patterned white, so you can still use this kit with boys.  I plan on using the “You Make My Heart Happy” layout for Mother’s Day.  My kids will have to do a photo shoot with me on my day, won’t they???

Feels like Summer with the Dreamin’ Big Scrapbook Page Kit!

Oh my goodness!!!  It feels like April in Michigan!!  We have SUNSHINE and warm temperatures and I just *need* to be outside!  Now, I am pretty sure we will have a snow storm next week, but I am going to enjoy the gorgeous weather while it lasts.  Did I mention that we have SUNSHINE?!?!  I soooo needed me some Vitamin D.

Dreamin’ Big is the perfect kit for this weather!  It is all about enjoying the outdoors – whether you are traveling, taking a nature walk, or just hanging out enjoying life.  These layouts will be perfect to capture your memories!  The colors are gender nuetral and will work great for boys or girls.  The best part – the floral paper can be flipped over to reveal…  wait for it….  BUGS!!! Yes, creepy, crawly BUGS!!!!  The very worst part of Spring in my book, but I remember how much my son LOVED his bug collection.

Hello Lovely Scrapbook Workshop – Why, Hello!!!!

Hello, my LOVELIES!!!!  I have to apologize for the tardiness of this workshop – I had the flu last week and it destroyed my timeline.  Next year, my family is going to FIRST IN LINE for the flu shot.  Losing a week to sickness is crazy town.

Hello Lovely is a gorgeous kit!  The colors are soft and feminine and I love how they blend with the gold and blush tones in the accents.   The thing I love most about these pages is that I feel like they will work with many different kind of photos – family, wedding, love, selfies, pets, relationships.  Say HELLO to Hello Lovely, this paper collection is a MUST HAVE!!!

So – having explained myself, let me just say that the Workshop Guide for Hello Lovely will be completed tomorrow, February 10.  You will get the link to the Guide (photos are loaded), and I will continue to add files as I complete them.  Page Kits have been ordered, but I do not yet have them in hand to start cutting – so they will be ready for shipping in 7-10 days.

Get ready for a SUGAR RUSH! Brand New Scrapbook Workshop!

Happy 2017, everyone!!!  I hope you are all well and warm and full of creative ideas for projects to tackle this year. 

WHEW!!  I have had a crazy hard time getting things in gear around here.  However, I have FINALLY completed my work on the first of our NEW kits – Sugar Rush!  

Sugar Rush is super fun kit.  Now, I am not going to lie – Sugar Rush was my LEAST favorite kit in the new catalog.  It appeared a little too sweet and young for my taste and photos.  BUT, as so often happens, once I started to work with it – I LOVED IT!!  I tried to make these layouts more gender nuetral and created themes like Baking (no baking pictures?  GET ON IT!), Celebration (any kind), Sweets (ice cream, candy, SUGAR), and then Love You (Valentine’s, family, pet, friends).

Two Page Scrapbook Layout Oh Deer Winter Birthday Outdoors Snow Magical #ctmhohdeer #cricutexplore #scrapbooking #pagekits #scraptabulousdesigns

Oh Deer! – It’s getting COLD outside!

So – it’s one week before Halloween and what do I have for you?   WINTER PAGES!  I know – kinda crazy, isn’t it?

Here is one thing I know for sure – TIME FLIES!  Before we know it, we are going to be well into the busy holiday season.  And how WAY COOL will it be (did you catch that pun?  Ha!) to have your Winter Scrapbook Pages already completed?  These Oh Deer! pages are sure to give you an extra incentive to get out and have some fun in the cold!  And, even if you don’t get snow where you live, these layouts can still be used for your winter adventures.

Make ANY photos coordinate with these layouts by turning your pictures black and white.  And – don’t forget your flip flaps!  Flip flaps are the BEST way on the planet to add more photos to your layouts while maintaining a clean look.

Fall into Fall with the Swan Lake Workshop Your Way!

Hey everybody!  It’s FALL!!!  I just love these cooler temps and seeing the trees begin to change color.  It’s official – Fall just plain makes me happy.  And that’s all I have to say about that.

I have the completed the second paper kit from our newly released Seasonal Expressions Catalog – SWAN LAKE.  I have to admit I was a little skeptical when I first saw this kit.  SWANS????  Hmmmm….  But – as I have learned over many years of designing, never judge a paper pack until you have created with it!   I chose to create one layout for Thanksgiving (I swear I am going to take pictures this year!) and then the other 3 layouts can be used with a variety of photos.  Don’t let the small number of photo mats hold you back – just add your favorite flip flaps and all the photos you need will fit perfectly on each page!

I also used two of our new products with this workshop – the Pocket Plus Memory Protectors and the Coordinating Cardstock Pack.

The Pocket Plus Memory Protectors come in 4 different designs that allow you to showcase additional 3×4 and 4×6 photos in a super fun way!  Unlike a typical 12×12 page protector, these vary in size from 4×12 to 6×12.  They have the 3 holes for your album posts/rings and a full gutter to work perfectly in between your standard CTMH memory protectors.  These are one of my favorite new items!!!  Totally a MUST HAVE!

Coordinating Cardstock Packs are now available for all of our new Paper Packs!  Each pack comes with 12 sheets (3 each of 4 colors) of coordinating cardstock to really enhance your paper crafting.  Say goodbye to white cardstock and HELLO to an affordable way to get the perfect colors of cardstock to match your projects.  YAY!!!!

Jeepers Creepers Halloween Monster Beware Trick or Treat Two Page Scrapbook Layout #ctmhjeeperscreeepers #scrapbooking #pagekits #halloween #cricut

Jeepers Creepers! Is it Halloween yet??

Happy September!  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this time of year???  My kids start back to school next week and I am looking forward to getting back into a routine – as much as I love the freedom of summer, all good things must come to an end.

Today, I am sharing one of our BRAND NEW paper kits from our newly released Seasonal Expressions Catalog – JEEPERS CREEPERS.  This fun and whimsical kit is perfect for Halloween, but I designed 3 out of the 4 layouts (YES!!!  I created 4 LAYOUTS this month!) so that they can be used in a non-Halloween way.  I don’t know about you, but now that my kids are older, I just don’t have enough Halloween photos to fill up 3 layouts.  But, don’t worry – if you know you’ll have a TON of Halloween pictures, they will all find a home with this kit!
