Happy New Year!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! 

It's a new year, a new month, and a new kit!!
I know we all have those fun snowy pictures, so I created this kit with those in mind.  Welcome to the 'Winter Wonderland'!!
ONLY $8.00


I've noticed a trend this year with wintery blues and bright reds ~  and I love it!!  So why not bling it up with some shiny white mats, red gems, and liquid pearls for the title.  Use stickles or liquid applique (snowy pen : use with a heat gun) to give the title a different look.


Have you figured out what you want for Christmas????

Oh, I know....a new Christmas layout kit right!?!  Oh good...I have just the thing!  Just in time for all those great Christmas photos you're going to take (or if you're like me you still have Christmas pictures from last year to scrap ;)  Best thing is ~~~ this month is
FREE SHIPPING on any layout still in stock!!! [list is below]

This kit uses BoBunny papers, which I just fell in love with!  Only extra item not provided is a tan ink pad ~ if you're an ink scrapper like me.  I used Jim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  the red sparkly flourishes and title will be done for you!!  Simple right?  That's the idea...

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions! 



Recognize those trees???  They're from the custom hard die made exclusively for Scrapbook Paradise (aka Treasured Memories Too).  If you don't have one, you need to get one!  There are so many uses for the die....I could go on and on!

I just had to add this little cutie!  Here's Parker's little plaque that she helped me make.  She wanted pink of course and I think it turned out great!  [Got the idea from the wonderful ladies at Scrapbook Paradise ~  they're SO creative!]

KITS STILL AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE:   Bouncy Ball kit (you can create any title you want since it comes with a full set of Thickers!  would be great for birthday),  Growing up so fast, H2O Fun, Autumn, and Beautifall.


Snow much fun!!!

here's Parker and I in our new scarves ~ given to us by my good friend Debi who has made about a million scarves in the past year!  Thank you Debi!!



Did I happen to mention that I LOVE the fall?!?

Here is a very simple, yet eye-catching layout for you.  A 5-minute layout kit (my favorite....quick!)  I used four 4X6 pictures, but you could change it up and use 4X4 photos or 4X3 and leave a journaling space....whatever works best for you!

Kit comes with ribbon, leaves, chipboard circle saying (every one is different), and a squirrel, and of course a fun title.


Recognize that cute little critter???  Some of you will...because it's from the custom quickutz hard die made exclusively for Scrapbook Paradise (aka Treasured Memories Too in Reno, NV  ~ aka my favorite store!)

You know you're addicted when...

...your mom buys you a bracelet made from a STARBUCKS MOCHA can and silver...  but it's so stinking cool, so I had to share a pic with you all!

STAY TUNED FOR THE BONUS LAYOUT!  ~will be posted on Wednesday; just in time for the Thanksgiving feast~


I love Autumn!! Don't you?!

Just in time for all those wonderful autumn pictures you have!  And only $10!!  Place up to 6 pictures on this layout!!  *Quote is optional*  If you would like your pumpkin center to be blank for your own personal journaling, then let me know (paper is patterned).  This kit has lots of little details....tree and foilage, pumpkins, decorative pins, and bling...did you see the bling?  It's subtle but effective. 

****Oh and there may be a bonus kit later in the month, so be on the lookout for that***

Happy Halloween!!

Here's my little love bug!!


latest baby album - Caden Cortez

I thought "C" was appropriate since his name is Caden Chase Cortez! :) Cute! This was made from one of the monogrammed letters off the silhouette.

I paper pieced a pregnant penelope, also a download from the silhouette, and customized her to look like my friend Jody! So cute...even has flip flops (Jody's favorite shoe)!

This verse is comforting to me. I love that God already knows my every day!

latest baby album cont...

a verse from the bible "We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed." Do you know where the verse is? I took it out of context for sure, but I think it's perfect for a newborn!

Too much glare! Next time I'll take pictures before putting them in the sleeves.

latest baby album cont...

I love using text on the computer and printing it out...more fits and it's a lot more legible than my handwriting.

the latest baby album cont...

I love this quote from Dr. Suess. I think it's just perfect for a 1-year old birthday page!

my friends have the cutest little fur ball doggy so this limited edition QK die was perfect!
