I would like to show you all the wonderful artwork we created at Album Retreat! We completed a full Album with a Cover page plus 10 layouts! That's 21 pages! Plus we had fun putting together 2 craft kits, Happy Thoughts Kraft Container & 20 Paper Pouch treat bags using an exclusive stamp set by Jeanette Lynton! Ya, they kept us pretty busy! :)

The first photo is the original by CTMH, so you can see the actual project, the second photo is of my finished project... I like to change things up a bit, so you'll so some differences! Some of my pages still need a little work, like one needs the title added! Enjoy the pics!

I only made 3, but I believe I'm going to finish the rest using my "Sweet as Honey" pattern, that one turned out to be my favorite! I could put "Bit o' Honey" candies inside... too cute!

Album Retreat was great! We really had a blast putting these pages & crafts together! We learned so many new ideas!
>>>Can't wait until the next Retreat!!!

Roxie Scrapbook Layout

Just finished my first layout using Roxie. I decided to create the second layout given in the Workshop on the Go brochure. The pages were just perfect for my pictures so here it is...

I love these hat pins! 

I have 2 more layouts in mind. I'll post them here when they're finished.


March 5th 8:30am For my second layout I really wanted to use this new stamp set called 10 Things. Love the idea of it, so this is what I came up with.

So I'v made 10 strips and a pocket to put them in. On the strips I'll hand write 10 things I love about my daughter! 

...and here is the finished layout. Love how the "10 things" pocket made my page that much more adorable!

I got the layout idea in the Make If from Your Heart Volume 1 Book on page 9.
and some up-close pix!

Thats my Jasi Girl! 

These hat pins are so beautiful and add a delicate touch!

Just Be! Such a perfect saying for my lil' girl!!! 
From the stamp set Live Out Loud!
 I also love using arrows... they add Fun to a page!
As you can see here, I'v inked the edges of my photos as well as the edges of the papers, I love the look this gives!

The shape in the middle I cut from my Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. (Love my Cricut! So glad that Close to my Heart decided to start creating cartridges!) Well onto the third layout! >>>will post soon!

10:30am (I got an idea just now, to change the 10 to 11, {11 Things I love about You} being that it is my daughter's 11th Birthday!!! Cute idea>>>what do you think?)

11:07am Ok... changed it to 11 Things I Love about You... super cute and goes better with the theme! Don't you just love spur-of-the-moment ideas!?!
Was super easy to change as well, I just changed the 10 things to 11 things and added an extra number 11 strip! CUTE CUTE!!! :)


March 6th 9:05am Today I will be working on the 3rd layout! This is what I'v came up with so far. I cut these with my Cricut! Art Philosophy cartridge. On page 29 there is a banner, super cute! The largest banner piece I cut at 2 inches. (sorry can't remember the other sizes, but I had to cut a few different sizes before I got the right one... still learning the Cricut! lol)

I'm inking ALL the edges, a lot of work but I really like the way it looks! I believe this stamp set is called Glamour lowercase Alphabet. <My fave alphabet stamp set!!!

Nothings glued down just yet... so placement could still be changed! End results coming soon! :)

10:52am Third & final layout! >>>Well I'm Done! I love how the banner turned out! ...and I used up all my bling! (hat pins & gem buttons). These pages turned out super cute, I had a lot of fun working with Roxie! 
Came up with the layout myself... I love the Roxie stickease and matching stamp sets! Wow... this was one darling Kit!

...onto my next project! Happy Scrappin' Gals!

Starting on CTMH's "Roxie"

Well I'm finally getting around to creating with Roxie! This collection is so beautiful! I love the prints... especially the zebra print... and the roses are so beautifully done! Can't wait to get started!!! :)

I got all my supplies out, matching stamp sets, bling... all the fun stuff!

 I had saved this kit for my daughter's Birthday... which I'm so glad I did, 'cause it goes perfectly with the pictures taken! 

My daughter loves zebra when I saw this paper packet I instantly thought of her!

***Finished pages coming soon...
