Today I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog with this page:
I kinda went crazy with the patterned papers, diecuts, and stickers. Wait. That just means I had a total blast making this layout right?! Haha. I enjoyed making this page a lot. I think just looking at the pile of pretty products makes my heart flutter. ;)
Visit the entire blog post I wrote up for Pretty Little Studio (including a list of products I used, if you're interested) HERE.
I'm sharing my last project that I made with the June Aquarelle kit from Clique Kits today. I have one other layout that I have shared on Instagram that I will share here sometime. This card was super fun to make-- I just love using lots of patterned paper. And if I haven't said this before, this June kit is AMAZING. So, so gorgeous.
Everything except the small doily on this card is from the kit. I still have so much leftover, and I'm pretty excited about that. ;)

Have you ever checked out Gossamer Blue?? Well GB is my new obsession. Back in May (National Scrapbook Day), I won a 3-month kit subscription to any kit I wanted (they currently offer three different kits). I was SO excited to find out that I had actually won!! Gossamer Blue has recently went all-exclusive, meaning that everything in their kits are made just for them. No American Crafts products or anything. I love that. And man-- these kits are amazing. :)
I may or may not have splurged and subbed to the scrapbook kit too (I had a gift card). I may cancel that one soon just because we are getting off the road soon and I probably don't need to be spending that money. We'll see!
Here's a quick & simple page I made with the June Gossamer Blue kit.
I made a process video of this page too, so check that out HERE (I'd love it if you did)!
I still have some Project Life spreads to share that I made on National Scrapbook Day back in May, so here's one of them!
I've been having some problems with depression (?) lately, so if you think of me, say a little prayer for me. A couple of weeks ago, it was SO intense. It's never been that bad. I made a last-minute road trip back to West Virginia for the camp meeting there (and it's been two months since we've been home!) and that was wonderful. I've missed being in church. I've missed people (specifically people I know). I am kind of an extrovert and so I love being with people. Of course there are those rare times I want to be alone, but overall I thrive on human interaction. I think it's all the adjustment of getting married and moving away from home and then being on the road all the time that was just weighing on me.
Thankfully I'm doing better now. It's still something I face each day, but with the help of the Lord I can be victorious over those overwhelming feelings that want to swallow me up.
SO! Back to scrappy things. :)
That striped card is one of my favorites. The colors are just my FAVE! So I used that card to inspire the rest of the spread. I'm trying to use up some stash around here! :)
That arrow paper clip was something that was being used for the other side of the page, so I just used it to clip onto the mirror card on this side too (hope that makes sense).
I'm really loving my Beautiful Day collection right now. It seems weird to say I love my own designs, but this collection is definitely my favorite one I've made so far!!
I really wanted to back a negative diecut with some fringed paper. So that's just what I did! :) I had this design all planned out in my brain, and I have to say it doesn't flow quite like I wish I did, but it's alright. All projects can't be our favorites, can they? I do like this page, I just don't love it.

Tuesday means another process video! This week I'm sharing a Stash Busters video where I use items from my scrapbooking stash to make this Project Life spread. I really like how this turned out-- for a while while I was making this, I wasn't too sure how it would turn out. ;)
View the process video HERE on my YouTube channel. :)
Today I'm sharing a layout that I made for my guest design spot over at Clique Kits! Yay!
When I didn't make the full term design team, I was kinds sad. But then Erica emailed me and asked if I wanted to be a guest designer sometime. Absolutely!! This month's Aquarelle kit is absolutely gorgeous! Most of the kit is made up of the Wild at Heart by Cocoa Vanilla Studio and I just LOVE it all. I've been wanting to try some of Cocoa Vanilla's products, so this was just perfect.
Here's the first layout I made using the kit:
