Fall Shaker Card

Fall is on its way! I decided to make a fall card for one of my mambi DT projects this month, and it turned out so cute in my opinion. ;)

I love my Fuse tool. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I used it to make a clear pocket card. Floating leaves and sequins? Uh, YEAH!

I think it looks so pretty with the note written inside. :)

Read more about the creation of this card HERE on the me & my BIG ideas blog.

I made a birthday card for my friend, Mecia, who turned 21 this past weekend. She is actually coming out here and we are heading to the beach on Thursday-- I'm SO excited!!! 

For this card I used various patterns from 4x6 paper pads from Studio Calico. I just love patterned paper. And that YAY! sticker is from me & my BIG ideas that I just recently found in my stash.

Oregon PL Spread

Here is the spread I made for my Project Life album, documenting my trip to Oregon. This is definitely just a synopsis of the trip. So much happened, but I used just a handful of my favorite photos or photos that will hopefully spark my memory years from now. I don't include every single story in my PL. Sometimes I want to, but I am terrible with words, and I'm always disappointed at how my feeble words don't capture the moment. :( Anyways. For now, I just did an overview of the trip. So here ya go--

I mixed a lot of random products from my stash. I got the color scheme for this spread from the little ticket journaling spot with the flowers. It's from the SC Lisse Street scrapbook kit. I really love how this spread turned out!!

Project Life Spread {me & my BIG ideas}

I love me & my BIG ideas. It is honestly the BEST company I have worked with in the scrapbook industry. The owners and designers are so amazing, and I LOVE their products. 

I made this Project Life spread with various POCKET PAGES™ cards and different embellishments- some chipboard, some paper, and some clear. I had a lot of photos for this spread, so I tried to keep the focus on those and added minimal embellishing. I love using my Fuse for making cool pockets, and this time it was used to seal closed a sequin shaker pocket. I layered some sequins OVER a POCKET PAGES™ card to add some interest to the page. How cute is that?! 

I'm up on the me & my BIG ideas blog with more info if you want to check it out! :) Click HERE to view the full post.

PL Spread- August 2015

I have a love affair with Studio Calico. I LOVE their kits, even though I don't subscribe to them. I would break down and subscribe, but I can't only buy my kit each month and that is not good for the bank account! I usually add several things to my box and then end up spending way too much each month on scrapbook stuff. Although it is a lot of fun… ;)

I have finally caught up on my Project Life. All the trips this summer had me waaaaay behind, but I am happy to report that I am all caught up as of today! Woo hoo! 

I want to share with you one of my most recent spreads because I just love the SC goodies I used on this page. And this photo I got of Pete:

Heehee he loves to get in my way while I'm taking scrapbook project photos outside and every once in a while, I get a cute photo. :)

I used mainly the August Pop Art Project Life kit from Studio Calico for this page. I ended up finding a listing in a Facebook group sale for most of the PL kit and I was SOOOOO excited. I had wanted to buy the kit from SC, but I didn't want to pay $29.99 or have to subscribe to get a better deal. I love the bright colors in this month's kit. I mean, how GORGEOUS are they?? So summer-y. This spread makes me happy. 

Ok, happy Monday! Be back soon--
