Love This Place

Good morning everyone! I am excited to share my first layout with you using the Imagine Collection! Ah, I just love, love, love, this collection. When I first received this collection, I thought it would work beautifully for a birthday layout since I haven’t scrapbooked Edward’s 7th birthday party!

Warm & Cozy with the Glacier Collection

Hi everybody. It’s Nicole with a fun winter layout using the new Glacier Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, and the Variety Mat Pack. The blues in this collection are beautiful! I must admit that I said “oooooooh” when I pulled this gorgeous collection out of the box! And it doesn’t stop at the blues… I can’t get enough of the cute little birdie stickers. :)

This collection is perfect for scrapbooking those winter photos! Although we did not get much snow last year, we got maybe an inch or two. Edward was excited to make a snowman, but I had to gently tell him that we weren’t getting that kind of snow. So we went outside so he could eat the snow and then throw fluffy snowballs at mommy for about twenty minutes.

Adventure Memories

Adventure-Memories-Layout-Creative-Memories

Hi everybody! I’ve been playing with a new tool and the Adventure Designer Paper Pack, Adventure Designer Sticker Pack and the Variety Mat Pack. Believe it or not, these photos were from Easter Sunday. Every year, when we visit my husband’s side of the family, Edward likes to go down to the stream to play in the water. He has been doing this for the past four years. And every year, I forget to take a change of clothes for him to change into after he falls and gets himself wet. Note to self: Pack extra clothes this Easter.

The Best of Times Layout

Best-of-Times-Croptoberfest-Kit Layout-Project

Hello everyone. Just recently, I came across a photo on my Facebook “On This Day” feed and came across a photo that I never scrapped. It was a favorite of mine too, but at the time, I did not have the right papers or embellishments to use for the layout. Until, almost four years later… As you can see, I do not scrapbook in chronological order; I scrapbook the photos that inspire me to scrapbook; photos and memories that I love…

The Croptoberfest Project Recipe Kit was perfect for these photos. The colors and patterns were just what I was looking for. And of course, I fell in love with the stickers. I just couldn’t stop adding them to the layout!

Birthday Traditions

Hello creators! I am back with a birthday layout I created using the Sugarplum Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, Variety Mat Pack, and Embellishments. Every year, no matter how old I get, my mommy makes me a birthday cake. Sometimes, we don’t get to celebrate my birthday with the family until the end of September, but that’s OK! I don’t know many people who would decline two birthday celebrations in one year. Do you? :)

Since Edward was a year old, he’s been helping me blow my birthday candles out. Mom has taken a picture of the two of us blowing out my birthday candles together for the past 7 years. I love this tradition… This year, Edward was really excited because he helped make the cake and he requested Oreos and pink sprinkles to decorate the cake with exactly 39 miniature Oreos.

Comfort on the Countryside–The Pumpkin Patch

Hi, everybody! Nicole here, with a layout I created using the Pumpkin Chain Border Maker Cartridge and the Country Comfort collection. I love fall and this collection is perfect for scrapbooking those fall memories!  The bold colors are so pretty and I the vellum paper is gorgeous! If you’re looking for a way to soften up your projects, vellum papers will do the trick!

Edward is at that age now where he thinks he is too big to go to the pumpkin patch… So, I decided to go through some photos from 2014 to scrap. I found a few of my favorite photos from when we visited Papa John’s Farm. He had such a great time searching for the right pumpkin!

Toil & Trouble–MEOW!

Hello friends! When I first saw the Toil & Trouble collection, I smiled because it is too cute for words! And the patterns are so versatile. You can create Halloween, Kitty, or any other everyday layout using this collection!

I will admit, I immediately thought about using this collection to scrapbook my cats, not Halloween. That “meow” washi tape and adorable kitty cat stickers were just calling my name. I couldn’t help it. Let’s not even go into the fact that it has teal and black and white polka dots and triangles… Literally, I could go into all kinds of favorites with this collection.

Making Plans

Hi, everyone. I have been making plans for September using the Bookworm Stickers and Embellishments. It’s hard to believe that school starts in just a few weeks and I am starting to stress, just a little… My nights are about to get even crazier, not that isn’t already crazy. As I am typing this post, I am wondering if I’ll have any time to scrap in the fall with homework, soccer games, and school events. I guess I’ll enjoy it while it last.

The stickers in this collection are adorable so naturally, for my planner, I used several stickers with a few die cuts. I used my Black Dual-Tip Pen to record my plans for the month of September.

Pens & Pouch

Hi everyone. I must admit, I have a thing for little pouches and when I first saw this cute little pouch, I knew I had to have it. And I did not want it for the pens. I wanted it for the pouch since my favorite color is blue.

Don’t get me wrong, I can find many usages for this pretty rainbow color marker set. There are a few ways these pens will come in handy. Here are a few ideas that come to mind. I could:

Friends Forever

Hi everybody. A week ago, I finally got the chance to meet up with my Best Friend Mischelle for dinner and a movie. We’ve been friends for over twenty years! I met Mischelle when I was a senior in high school. She’s 10 years older than me, but the age difference never mattered… as you can see. Twenty years later we still make fun of each other and laugh at ourselves. We often say, what happen to us? We are getting old!

I love the photo of us together. We barely had any make-up on, but we didn’t let that bother us. We always take photos when we are together. It’s all about the moment.
