You're My Cup of Tea

Sir Scrapalot is re-releasing this kit today (it was previously released in The Digi Files) at Funky Playground! How adorable is this??

Here is the layout I made with it.

Journaling reads: January 15 Twenty-Eleven It's been such a long day. Elizabeth wouldn't let you help decorate her cake, which upset you terribly. Lorin came over for a sleepover, and shortly after we picked her up, you banged your head on the bookcase. Ouch! We had Elizabeth's birthday party, with the cousins, so Ethan, Alex, Daniella and Cayla were here too! We had homemade pizza and cake and ice cream. By the time everyone left, you and Lorin were snuggled up in bed talking. But suddenly she came downstairs and wanted to go home. That made you so sad - you cried and cried. Finally you fell asleep on the couch, and before anyone could bring you upstairs, you slipped off the couch and slept this funny, but very sweet way!

PDQ (pretty darn quick)

You have got to check out Nancie Rowe Janitz's PDQ overlays! She has a new set in the store today, and they are so pretty!

I made this background using them! They are so easy to use!!

Ju Kniepp has released this gorgeous new Valentine's kit - 4 Ever. It is full of fun lace and pretty goodies! I had a lot of fun playing with it!

I also grabbed this fun set of templates from Tiny Toes designs.

And made this.

This photo is of a firework we lit off last July 4th. It is really supposed to look like Pegasus wings, but I thought it really resembled a burning heart, and was therefore perfect for Valentine's day!

Sir Scrapalot

I was so excited to be invited to join the creative team for Sir Scrapalot. I think his designs are really cute, and am so happy to get to work with him! Here is a paper pack he put in his shop today. (images are linked)

With it I used this fantastic alpha that he released a while back.

And, I made this.

My little guy kept sneaking cheetos one day, and this is the look he gave me when I noticed. He's so sweet!

Art Journal Cover

Well, before my husband's brother passed away unexpectedly and we left for the east coast last month, I had started Jessica Sprague's Inspiration Everywhere class. Unfortunately, due to the events, I never made it past the cover of my art journal, but here is that. I was really excited to print out paper and add some actual dimensional elements!

Background is made with Thankful Hearts collab from the CatScrap designers.
Other supplies - butterfly from Jenni Bowlin Studio, self-adhesive rhinestones from Jolee's, and adhesive from Tombow.
