March Circle Journal

I finally finished the circle journal for this month (a few day's late.....). This month's theme was "Favorite Quote". I don't really have a favorite, but I came across this one that I really liked.

I promise to get back to my regular blogging this week! Tomorrow I can start posting some of the projects that I've been working on with the April Moment's to Remember kit. Stay tuned!!!

Who are you??

Oh my! I can't believe I haven't posted anything since Sunday! Yikes! Where did the time go?? I've been a single mom for a few days and I guess there just wasn't enough time in the day...

But now I'm back! This is another layout with the Jenni Bowlin papers from the Scrappy Girl Designs March kit. Kind of a fun layout with all my sons nicknames.

A New LIfe

Another layout of my sweet little new nephew, Zach--I'm sure there will be many, many more to come!!! This layout was completed using supplies from the March kit at Scrappy Girls Designs: Jenni Bowlin Tangerine patterned paper, blue cardstock, orange peel Stickles, Jenni Bowlin Alpha stickers, chipboard swirl, and wire thread. I'm quickly becoming addicted to Stickles! It great for adding a little sparkle or just using it as an accent. The wire thread is also a lot of fun--something that I've never used before. Come over to the Scrappy Girl Designs gallery and check out what the other design team members have created with this fantastic kit!

Altered Tin + Mini Album

I'm sorry I haven't posted many layouts this week. I've been really busy trying to finish this altered tin and mini album from the Scrappy Girl Designs March kit. This was my first "official" assignment as a Design Team member so I wanted to make sure I did a good job. I decided to make a little album about my daycare. Something that I can show current families and prospective families during an interview. I'm really happy with how it turned out---it was a big project!!

All supplies were from the Scrappy Girl Designs March kit: Dream Street Birdie Bits patterned paper, light blue and green cardstock, orange peel Stickles, Jenni Bowlin Chalkboard Alpha's, Jenni Bowlin Journaling sticker, ribbon/wire thread, brads, white rub-on doodles, and Creative Imaginations tin/album. This is only half of what actually came with the kit! I will be working on some layouts this weekend with the other half--stay tuned!!!!

Just a couple quick cards I threw together last night.
This one if for a 7 year old girl for her birthday. On the inside it says "It's your birthday!". Supplies are from my Moments to Remember March kit.

This is just a really plain card using my MemoryWorks March kit. It could be used for just about anything. Just add a sentiment on the inside and you're set!

Snug as a Bug!

Last night I had the opportunity to watch my brand new nephew--Zachary! My sister turned 30 yesterday (whooo hooo!) and I gave her dinner out on me + free babysitting! I think she enjoyed having a few hours alone with her finacee' and I, of coarse, enjoyed spending some quality time with Zach.

I just HAD to snap a few photos of Zach sleeping so soundly. I loved the pictures so much I immediatly put them into a layout today. Most of the supplies were from the awesome RAK I received from Dawn--thanks again!

I just HAD to post this right away.....I was selected to be on the design team at Scrappy Girl Designs!!!!!!!!!! This was the first time that I've ever even applied to be on a design team and honestly I didn't even think I would come close to making it. I'm shaking I'm so excited!!!! Whew! So what does this mean? Each month I will be sent the Scrappy Girl monthly kit. My "job" is to create layouts, altered projects, cards, whatever with the products.

I Love Mail!!!

Ok, so I am having the BEST mail week ever!!! First I received my kit from Moments to Remember. I haven't created anything yet, but I have a 2-page layout in the works. Hopefully, I will finish it tonight and I can post it tomorrow. Yesterday I received 2 packages--yes 2!!! The UPS truck came and delivered the March MemoryWorks Express Kit. Lots of really fun numbers and green paper. I have some pictures that I need to print up for that. Lastly, I received an RAK from Dawn at Scrappy Girl Designs. An RAK in scrappin' cyberworld is "Random Act of Kindness". Dawn hosted a little challenge to learn more about her and the first person to answer correctly won some free scrappin' supplies. I WON!! She totally spoiled me with this AWESOME kit she put together. I am in scrappin' heaven with all this new stuff!!! Hmmmm.....what should I do this weekend???

Here's a picture of all the goodies Dawn sent me. See what I mean?! Go check out her blog--she has some amazing pictures in there.

Moments to Remember March Kit!

Lately I've been spending a lot of time at Moments to Remember. It's been fun meeting new people, getting new scrapin' inspiration, and talking "shop". I was super excited to see the new March kit revealed this past weekend. Luckily I ordered mine just in time before it was sold out! It arrived in the mail today and I'm soooo excited to create with it! Such great spring colors without lots of pastels. A really cute bird stamp too! Check it out:

Thank You Card

A simple basic card.... I completed this card as a challenge at Scrappy Girl Designs. The challenge was to create a card with cardstock only(no patterned paper) and 1 rub-on, nothing else. I dug through my scraps pile to determine my colors. The star was cut with my Coluzzle and star template, Basic Grey "thank you" rub-on and a little doodling--DONE!!

I just had to scrap a few photos of my husband hangin' at a hockey game. As the journaling says "For most of the winter you can find Tim right here".

This challenge was to create a layout without any patterned paper--cardstock only! It also needed to include 3 different ribbon and 2 circles. I thought the different colored cardstock kinda looked like camouflage once I was done. Again--you don't need a lot of "stuff" make a cool layout!

A layout about ME! This layout goes to show you that you don't need a ton of paper to create a cool layout. A few scraps is all you need. I really like this layout because is simple--just like me!

Supplies: Cosmo Cricket- Dutch Girl patterned paper, tags, and chipboard, Heidi Swapp Ghost letters, white acrylic paint, white ribbons, and misc rub-ons/sticker sayings.

Only a couple more challenges left to post from the Scrappy Girl Designs CyberCrop (yes that was LAST weekend--I'm a little behind). This challenge was to create a layout using 10 different fonts in the title. At first I was like--wha? But in ended up being really easy AND I really like how it turned out. I couldn't believe that I actually had 10 different black letter fonts! I have more letters than I thought!

Supplies used: January MemoryWorks Express Kit and misc. alphas.
