Let's Dine-In!

Good afternoon! This is a layout I made following the Let's Scrap 114 sketch challenge. I used some Jenni Bowlin papers, which were in a 4" x 4" size, along with Cosmo Cricket, and My Mind's Eye papers. The chipboard embellishments and stickers are from the Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line. Letter stickers, tickets, pearls, and journaling tag are from the Jenni Bowlin collection.

These are pictures from the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater in Hollywood Studios at Disney. The only time we could get a reservation was for 10:30 at night, in order to all sit in the same car. We planned the day so that we went right here after the Fantasmic show. This was probably one of the best nights of our trip. I had some interesting difficulties with my milkshake, which led to some pretty funny moments!

For your Shower

Hello! This is a card I made with some new SU! goodies for my good friend, Ninetta who is getting married in September. I used dp from the Walk in the Garden paper pack, and the Big Shot die cut "Lattice". I added rhinestones to the "flowers" of the lattice. There is actually a very small amount of stamping on this card, only the sentiment, which I placed hanging off the side oft the card.

Hope you enjoying seeing Ninetta's card! Have a super day!


Let's Have Some Fun!!

I just got an order of brand new SU! goodies in the mail! We actually only ordered like 3 stamp sets, and then some Sizzix new dies. The set I used here is called Friends Rock, and the coordinating wheel is called Rockin'. I thought the set was super fun and it screamed out to me! I kept my card here pretty simple to highlight the fun images. The bottom image is the wheel part of the set (I now have all my wheels unmounted and on E-Z foam which I attach to an acrylic mount to stamp) which I colored with all the new In-Color markers. The top portion is a stamp from the set which I also colored with the In-Color markers. I used some In-Color ribbon and paper for the rest. The Bermuda Bay paper is punched with an EK Success edge punch.

Thanks for taking a look today!


Thanks, Keith!

I bet your saying, Keith? Keith who? Lol (I know you are, Sara!). I am talking about Keith Urban, of course! I grabbed some inspiration from him for my layout today. I love his song called "Everybody" and I took a lyric from the song for my title on this layout. This is a photo of my brother's and I from my birthday last month. It is kinda rare that we are all together at once (and dressed nicely, at least for them) to take a photo. Now that we are are older, I think we have a different kind of appreciation for each other, and get along better. I think it's true that we need each other and do rely on one another.

I used some new Basic Grey "Lemonade" paper for my layout. It is BEAUTIFUL paper! I also used some of their chipboard stickers to match the paper line. The letter stickers come in the paper collection pack. The felt embellishments are the same ones I used on my "Wishes" layout and are by K & Company. The journaling tag is from Jillibean Soup (just found out about them, and I LOVE the soup theme she has!). I added a stamp from Close to my Heart to the bottom corner to include the date. I made this layout to follow the latest sketch challenge on 52 Sketches 52 Weeks (#29).

Thanks for checking me out today!


Happy Birthday, Grace!

I made this card for my cousin Grace who will be turning 10 in August. I have to mail her gift to her because she lives so far away. Being the girly girl she is, I thought it was time to get her into Vera Bradley, so I got her a Cupcakes Pink lunchbox, and my Mom got her a matching purse and change purse. I wish I could be there to see her open it!

I made this card using the card sketch from Let's Scrap for this week. I stamped this Sophie image from Paper Pretties, paper pieced her dress and colored her with Copics. The dp is by Basic Grey (Gypsy). The sentiment is from a new SU! set, and the felt flower is also from SU!.

Summer Means...

a County Fair! These are some pictures from last year's Sussex County Fair. I made this layout for this week's challenge on Let's Scrap which was to use fruit papers, pictures, or embellishments, and the word "summer" in your title or journaling. I used this adorable paper line from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooking called "My Sweet Cherry Pie". This is a new company to the scrapping world, but the papers and stamps are adorable! The paper line has a coordinating stamp set which I used to stamp the tree, cherries, horseshoe, and words "lucky me".

Have a great rest of your weekend!



I made this layout featuring some pretty nighttime photos of Cinderella's Castle. We were eating dinner at the Polynesian near Magic Kingdom when the Wishes fireworks were showing, so we got to see it from there, but sadly couldn't take pictures. This layout is my tribute to the Wishes fireworks! The design is loosely based off the So Sketchy July #9 sketch. I used patterned paper by EK Success and Provo Craft (Rob and Bob). I traced the decorative edge on the paper from a template. The paisley chipboard is from Fancy Pants and I painted it with a paint dabber, and then added some K & Co felt embellishments and rhinestones. I made my own fabric flower in the upper right corner with fabric by Moda. The letter stickers are by Making Memories.

Thanks for stopping by tonight!


A late Easter!

Good Morning! I wanted to share this layout I made yesterday. This past Easter, I was in Disney World, so I didn't really celebrate the holiday in the traditional form. These pretty southern ladies were in front of Magic Kingdom dressed in their Easter finest. They really helped celebrate the holiday!

I made this layout using the Fancy Pants Girl Craft Kuts collection. All papers and diecuts (except the cardstock) were from this kit. I cut 2 owls out of the patterned paper to use as accents next to my title and journaling block. I used the "So Sketchy-Ormolu" sketch for my layout.

Raglan Road

Good evening! Have you ever made a layout and just loved it? This is one of those for me! I started out by using the Color Combo #126 on Color Combos Galore, but I kind of cheated because I added the Purely Pomegranate color (the original combo was orange, green, cream, and grey). Despite my cheating ways, I really like the results! I used patterned paper by SU! and Cosmo Cricket (Little Man, and Early Bird). I traced the decorative edge on the orange and grey paper from another sheet that already had this pretty border. On the edges of the background paper I used the stamp set "Razzle Dazzle". I also used the small flower from this set, which I stamped and cut out to accent, and also stamped them on the orange paper. The chipboard accents are from the Cosmo Cricket "Early Bird" line. The letter stickers are fabric Thickers.

Thanks for stopping by tonight!


Leap of Faith

This is a layout I made today using a sketch from "The Scrappiest". Check them out here. I used some paper by Creative Imaginations from the Christine Adolph line. For the border of fern leaves, I cut them out with the "Life's a Beach" cartridge from the Cricut in white paper, and then glimmer misted them with "Winter Pine". I added a fabric flower with some fabric by Moda called "Sweet" by the designer Sweet Chiks. Here is a close up of those two things:

Heartfelt Friends

Happy Sunday! I thought I'd share a recent layout I made for 52 Sketches 52 Weeks. This sketch was featured this past week, and starting today, a brand new sketch will be posted! On my layout, I used a photo from Disney World that was taken with our Photopass in front on Cinderella's Castle. I used some patterned paper by KaiserCraft called "Imagine," and a piece of decorative edge paper by Making Memories to mat my photo. The large letter stickers are by K & Company. The flowers are by Prima.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Viva Mexico!

I made this page today featuring Donald Duck at Epcot in Mexico. I followed a sketch from the blog "So Sketchy" for July. Check it out here! I loved that big star in the background, but couldn't find a stencil with a star pattern in my stash. I found a star in one of my Cricut cartridges, and cut it out from there. I used a combo of pp by My Mind's Eye, KI Memories, and Stampin' Up. I found the green tag in an old folder of distress techniques from a class that I had taken years ago. It matched perfectly! I made a fabric flower from some Moda fabric from the line "Soriee" by Lila Tueller. On top of my flower is a SU! stamp from the set "Cheers to You." This page matches another page that I made with photos from Mexico in Epcot. Thanks for stopping by!



Hi! Been awhile, huh? I've been very successfully scrapping a lot of my photos lately! Yay! I am finally back in my scrapping kick, but sadly not too many cards are being made. I was proud of myself tonight because I combined scrapping and stamping on this layout. I just received the new Scarlet Lime July kit in the mail today, with exclusive papers by Chatterbox's Melody Ross. The kit is just gorgeous and I immediately put it to use! This layout features a photo of my Mom and myself when we went strawberry picking. I layered a lot of the patterned paper from the kit over a piece of SU! designer paper. In the lower right corner I made my own fabric flower with some beautiful fabric by Moda. I also journaled on a stamped image which came in the kit.

I used a stamp set by SU! for the butterfly, frame, and sentiment in the upper right corner.
