Radical Wood Veneers

The Basic Grey Hipster Collection is an awesome collection.  One of the things that makes it so great are all the fantastic embellishments, one of them being the wood veneers.  They come with the Hipster I Want It All Bundle available at

Hipster Wood Veneers

There are a lot of options as to how to use these in your projects.  One fun way is to ink or chalk them.  For my project, I chose chalking inks that matched the color in the collection.  By rubbing the wood words with the ink pads, the color transferred to the wood with just a few coats.  

They absorbed the color very easily and came out vibrant and very awesome.

I added some other fun embellishments like twine, the postage stamps, etc.  

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!

Outdoor Adventure

Once again, Imaginisce has come out with another amazing collection!  Outdoor adventure has a beautiful color and pattern combination that is perfect for those camping, hiking, and fun outdoor photos.  In my layout, I went with the "adventure" theme that was captured in these photos of my kids climbing trees and being adventurous.  

One of my favorites in the collection is the woodgrain patterned paper and just had to use it along with several other fun patterns.  I had fun combining and layering the different patterns and creating the title for the page with the cute alpha stickers and embellishments.  

If you are a camper and enjoy the outdoors, then Outdoor Adventure Collection is the one for you!  I can't wait to get some fun camping photos this summer so that I can play with this collection some more!  

Visit for more amazing projects using Outdoor Adventure Collection.

Have a fabulous day!

We R Memory Keepers Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!  Today I am featured on We R Memory Keepers blog as a Guest Designer!  I was very excited for the opportunity to design for them.  My featured project is a 12x12 layout using the Feeling Groovy Collection.  

This collection is full of bright colors and patterns!  Perfect to scrapbook this cute photo of my daughter taste testing the Easter cookies, yum!  

What I love about this layout is the beautiful flower patterned paper paired with fancy scroll die cut shape.  To make the shape, I used We R Memory Keepers Fancy Scroll Super 8 Punch and light blue card stock.  I kept the negative and that's what is framing the page.  I really love this shape, and I LOVE the Super 8 punches. 

I embellished the page by hand cutting flowers out of the patterned paper and adding rhinestones for that beautiful bling effect.  The result is a very festive and elegant layout!


Paper:  Flowers, Groovy, Harmony, Light Blue Card stock, White Card Stock.  Happy Times Tag, Chipboard Alphabets, Fancy Scroll Lucky 8 punch, Rhinestones, Blue ink, Sheer polka dot ribbon, White gel pen.

Here is some more of my work I've featured on my blog previously using We R Memory Keepers products.  Click on the link below and it will take you to the blog post for that project.

Thank you We R Memory Keepers for this awesome opportunity to Guest Design!  And thanks to all of you for stopping by today! 

Have a fabulous day!

Rad Tag and HIpster Layout

If you love Basic Grey then the Hipster Collection is not one to be missed!  Using all the fabulous embellishments, I designed a tag that can be used for journaling and embellishment on a layout.  

As you can see from this photo, there were quite a few elements that went into making this tag.  All of these are included in the I Want It All bundle at

The tag is a very quick and easy project, and I made it with the idea that I would use it on a layout. is the layout, featuring the tag...oooh ahhh!  

I can't say enough, how much I LOVE this has such a cool look that I just can't stop scrapbooking with it!  

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying this collection as much as I am!

Beautiful do!

Hello there!  Hope everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day!

Today, I am featuring a project for Imaginisce done with the I top tool.  With a little girl in the house, hair accessories are a MUST!  So it was an easy choice to design one for this month's I-top project.  Since my daughter LOVES pink I went with the Love You More Collection and some pink tulle to make up this cute I-top Bobby Pin.  

Supplies:  Love You More Collection, I bond Glue Gun, I rock, Hot Rocks, Pink Tulle, I top Bobby Pin, Medium Paper Punch. Twine, Glitter Glue.

To make this hair accessory, I began with the the Medium Paper Punch and I top tool to make the bobby pin.

I then took strips of paper and glued them around the backside of the bobby pin accessory.


Once the glue cooled, the took some pink tulle and bunched it in a flower, pom pom type shape and tied the middle of it with twine.  Then I glued that behind the paper strips.

For that extra sparkle I love so much, I used the I-rock to adhere hot rocks to the center of the bobby pin and on the tulle.  I added some glitter glue to the piece as well.  

And there you have it!  A very fun, vary pink, very girlie hair accessory.  

Have a fabulous day!

Mother's Day Card

Handmade cards are always such a treasure and a great way to wish your Mom a Happy Mother's Day this year.  The Love You More collection by Imaginisce is a great collection for such a card.  

I used the Love  You More Collection by Imaginisce and put a lot of fun details into the card.

Some fun little details I incorporated were the look of washi tape made with the chevron paper, heart stickers made into tags and attached to the bakers twine and the layered flower with "Mom" in it.

Hope this has inspired you to make a handmade card of your own for your Mom this Mother's Day.
Have a fabulous day!
