The Great Outdoors - A Ziplining Adventure!

The Great Outdoors

I wanted to do a layout featuring the ziplining adventure the kids took with their Dad.  I used The Great Outdoors line from TPC Studio and it provided me with the perfect title!

I'm going to be in Canadian Scrapbooker in December 2012!

Here is a post without any pictures.  I was just recently informed by Canadian Scrapbooker that they are going to publish one of my layouts in their December magazine.  I am so excited!  This is my first time being published anywhere and I can't wait to see the magazine when it comes out.  I'll post the page # when I finally get to see the magazine.  :)

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever

I used Bella Blvd's camping line, and the title came from To The Cabin from Cricut.  Added some cardstock from Bazzill.  I get a lot of ideas about layout plans from Scrapbook Generations - they are awesome for layouts!

Baseball Is Life

Baseball Is Life

I used the papers that I had from Best Creation.  I love them - one of the things that you can't really see in this layout is that the papers are embossed and glittery.  I now have to go and dig through my kids papers to see if I can find their baseball pictures!

My entire book is full of double page layouts, if you hadn't noticed that trend by now!  With this layout, my plan is to put in print off my son's prom pictures in black and white - and then I'll never have to worry about the colour scheme going out of style and he won't like it later on!
I used Basicgrey's Little Black Dress as the papers, with the embellishements from Making Memories - in particular the black sparkle letters, the silver sparkle flourishes and the journaling pad.

Canada Day Layout

I decided to use my smooch and glitz stickles to create the background and effects for this unique double page layout.  I find it a bit difficult to find a layout featuring our July 1st holiday - so why not make my own!!??

Smash Class

Well, we had a Smashing great time with Brigit, as she taught us how to make our own versions of a Smash book.  Loved everyone's different takes - I wish I had thought to take pictures of everyone's albums as well!  So many different dies, stamps and tools to play with - we all learned a couple of new tricks and really had a great afternoon. 
Thanks again Brigit!

Spring Spectacular

Make this layout and cards using the Spring Fling line from Bella Blvd!  Loved it - and I loved making the cards out of the leftover stock - makes me feel like I got some good use out of all the papers! :)


The papers and embellishments for this layout came from Kaisercraft's Hunt & Gather line.  I loved it, and was finally able to put this together!  I am planning on putting in some pictures of my two daughters and I on a walk around the cottage - but I am a little stuck on the title at the moment - hence there is nothing on the page yet.  Any suggestions?


I used the Kaisercraft 'Candy Lane' line for this layout, and added one of their bling titles to the top.  The green strips are actually the designer tapes from Bella Blvd - they just happened to match the cupcakes from the die cuts so I had to add it in!

Rock Star!

Rock Star!

I've been feeling very creative this weekend - just felt like using up some of these papers that I've had for a while now and haven't had the chance to do anything with.  I'm staying on my theme of teenagers and thought of quite a few uses for this layout.  Got pictures from a concert that the kids went to?  Did they take music lessons and put on an end of year performance?  What about your video game kid playing a little bit of Guitar Hero?  Or do you have some pics of your kids just acting super -cool?  Whichever you have - make sure to get it all documented while they give you the opportunity!   Rock on!
Forgot to mention that the papers that I used for this layout are from Best Creation!

U Make Me :)

I wanted to make a layout for teenagers - they can be a difficult lot to scrapbook, as they don't like the cute stuff anymore!
I used TaDa's Just Chillin' line and added some of the Kasiercraft Brackets and Arrows rub ons.
Now I just need to find the elusive teenagers so I can take pictures of them.  :)

Here are some new layouts and cards that I put together using Bella Blvd's Spring Fling line.  I wanted to show an option for those of you who have multiple pictures - which is the same problem that I always have!  The card layouts I scraplifted from the new Cardmaps Volume 2!
Can't wait for Easter so I can get some pictures in this layout!

I've been dying to do this layout using these papers from Kasiercraft! We went to our local farm fair and I had all these photos - and when I saw the 'Cock-A-Doodle-Doo collection, I knew exactly which photos I was going to use with it!
The die cuts that came with the collection had so many options to choose from - I have a ton left over and now I can go on to finish off some other layouts!
I matted my pictures in Bazzil's Palo-Verde - just needed to add a bit of green in there!

Advent Calendar

Here is my version of the Kaisercraft 25 Drawer unit with the Christmas papers. I followed most of their instructions and had a bit of help along the way from my good scrapbooking advisor Brigit. I am really please with the result - it looks like so authentic and I hate to put it away now that Christmas is over!
I am definitely thinking of doing something for my daughter's room in the colours that she loves so she can have some drawers to put away her trinkets and jewellery. Kaisercraft - this has been another amazing product and I hope you keep them coming!!
