American Crafts Travel Layout and Process Video

Hello Friends! I felt like a kid with a new box of crayons when I opened the new American Crafts Box Of Crayons line by Shimelle! I used it to make a travel layout with two photos and journaling on the We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter.







Just look at all the colorful new styles of embellishment! All the details are below in the process video if you would like to see more:)




Thank you for visiting today :)

Plan With Me: American Crafts Weekly/ Monthly Horizontal Planners


Welcome to my first planner spread for the new year! I have a plan with me video below if you would like to see the process of how this spread came together. 

Using the new Weekly/Monthly Planners from American Crafts!





Here is the January Month view, and aren't the stickers from the Paige Evans Sticker Book so gorgeous? I can't tell you where the stamps are from because they are a super sneak peek, and haven't been released yet, but you are going to love them ;)

American Crafts Design Team Mini Album and Video

Hello friends! I was inspired by Paige Evans and her many beautiful mini-album videos! She is so creative, and since I made my last mini album no less than six years ago, I thought it was about time:) The new Vicki Boutin Mixed Media line is perfect for trying out mixed media techniques, and I had fun creating watercolor art with her Art Crayons.


First page using the Vicki Boutin Creative FX Iridescent glaze and her stencils, and art crayons. 



Stamping underneath the smile title.










The Vicki Boutin Heavyweight Mixed Media Paper is 140# and doesn't warp, so it's perfect for base pages.



Love the Glaze with this mandala stencil. #mixedmedia















Here is the YOU-TUBE FLIP THROUGH


Thank you for hopping by today, and happy crafting!

Sunday Sketch with Citrus Twist Kits

Hello crafty friends! I have a Sunday Sketch layout for you today.








I bought a new Fiskars punch and wanted to try to make pumpkins with it, even though it is a hot air balloon punch. 



Close up of the photo I edited to black and white in Lightroom, so that the color scheme would stand out, and also the photo pops more in black and white. I tucked bits and fussy-cut tags from the patterned papers in the kit. 



I added some staples to coordinate with the cut-aparts in the kit. 



The Sunday Sketch from Citrus Twist Kits is above if you would like to give it a go! 



Happy crafting, and thanks for stopping by!

30 Days Of Thankful Traveler's Notebook Style

Hello crafty friends! I am excited to embark on my first ever 30 Days Of Thankful album using supplies from the Cathy Zielske Design Mini Class in my 




I set up my Felicity Jane Note To Self Traveler's Notebook for Fall, and it seems so cozy and warm! I used the FJ October kit in conjunction with the printables from Cathy Zielske's Mini Class that are sized for a standard TN. 



I pre-made this page for November 1st, so it would be all ready to go, and all I had to do was slap on the printed journaling spot from CZDesign. Easy peasy! Supplies on this page are from the November Citrus Twist Kits Scrapbook Main Kit.




Journaling spot in place






Day 2: on the left page with a spot for Day 3 on the right-hand side. Printing out all the supplies from the CZDesign class meant I could just grab a journaling spot and write on it and slap it on. Making it easy people:) ( In my head that is said in Cathy Zielske's voice, love it!)



The You-tube video above gives you a walk trough of my current Fall Set-up and a closer look at the stellar quality of the Felicity Jane TN! 


Thank you for visiting today!
