June Scrappinista Scrapbook Club!

June's Scrappinista Scrapbook Club for Scrapaganza is October Afternoon's 5 & Dime Collection!
What an awesome paper line to work with! I loved it, even though I wasn't sure I wanted another "vintagey" line to work with. This one was awesome!

I wasn't sure I'd like this layout but once I was done, I loved it.

I used Distress stain to wash the title background, using the word "mom" as a mask.

October Afternoon's chalk Sprinklers spray was AWESOME to work with!

Thanks for looking!

Catching up! May Scrappinista Scrapbook Club!

Scrapaganza's May Scrappinista Club kit was BoBunny's Ad Lib collection! What an awesome funky fun line of papers to work with!

The only problem is that I ended up in the hospital on the day I planned to finish using up my kit! Just a bout (first one) of gall stones, so I'm okay. But it was a few days before my vacation to Oklahoma so there just wasn't time for me to do more than these two layouts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Catching up! May Sizzix Die-of-the-month class

I have the good fortune of designing for Scrapaganza's Sizzix Die of the month class! May was my month and we used a die that made these lovely flowers and leaves. The ladies that took the class got to make this layout and the card and gift box below!

Thanks for looking!

Catching up! April Scrappinista Scrapbook Club!

Now for April's Scrappinista Scrapbook Club at Scrapaganza!  This month's adorable papers came from the Neighborhood Collection from Crate Paper! I just loved all of these papers, especially the bees!
The papers really inspired me.
Normally I'm not a big fan of Crate Paper, but I loved the color scheme of this line!
I use paper behind both this layout and the "you are my sunshine" layout above. This one I used a piercer to poke the holes for the butterfly's flight path, and I adhered paper behind those holes to show through. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Catching up! March Scrappinista Scrapbook Club

Hello!  March's Scrappinista Scrapbook Club kit at Scrapaganza was Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 collection! This line of papers and embellishments were sooo lovely to work with! But then my favorite colors have always been black, red and white... but an added surprise of yellow took this kit to a whole new level.

The collection lent itself well to cutting up the papers, something I always loved doing!
This page was inspired by Amy Heller on Two Peas.
A little card I did with the scraps.
