It's that time again...the reveal for Scrappy Chics new kit of the month! December's main kit is full of October Afternoon. I love how whimsical this line bright and cheery. This first layout I did is of Bekah modeling a chef's hat and apron that I made for one of her friends. She's quite the model, huh? :)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This next one is of her blowing bubbles. I've had these pictures since this last summer, but I just didn't have the right line of papers to use. I love how it came together. I used a sketch from Sketchabilities and that can be found here.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This last one is a box that I decorated using the add on kit. It was so hard cutting up these gorgeous papers by My Mind's Eye! I plan on filling it with some handmade Christmas ornaments and giving it as a gift. I will post pictures when I finish with the ornaments.
It's going to be a great new year at Scrappy Chics! We will be saying hello to three new designers...please check here to read their bios. I can't wait to work with these fabulous ladies!!

another stunning kit

I know that I say this about every kit Melinda puts together...but November's kit is really AWESOME!! For those of you who were lucky enough to get your hands on one of these kits...I congratulate you! :) Seriously, folks, this kit is stunning.
(And, unfortunately, all sold out)

Here's what I did with mine:

One fall day...I love these pictures of Bekah. She's still at the age where she'll actually let me take pictures of her :) Better take advantage of that while I can!

The green letter stickers and the yellow ruffled ribbon are from past Scrappy Chics kits. One of the things I love about her kits is that they are so versatile!

I'm really loving the banner stamps, too.


First Crush...A layout dedicated to his first real crush. It was quite a shock to have my 5 year old come home with love notes from his special girl. Yep, I saved them :)

I peeled the top layer off of the chipboard letters then misted them with yellow mist to match my layout. I tried misting them before I peeled them and the mist just wiped off. This trick could be used with any chipboard...peel then mist :)


On this next layout, "the dress", I used brown stamping ink to color the chipboard letters.

I also added a couple spiral roses, as well.


This next card was made for a teacher at work who was celebrating her birthday. I pulled out my trusty Cuttlebug for this one :) I haven't used it in awhile.

Her kits are selling out before the reveal! Make sure you pre-order your kits today!

a new month

The new kit is available at Scrappy Chics! Last I heard, she actually still had some kits left for purchase! But don't wait too long...I bet her kits will be gone really quick!

This first layout is of Bekah demonstrating the correct (wrong) way to make a "peanut sammich". I love these pictures. It truly captures the fun of her age.

This kit also has a beautiful album by Pink Paislee. I only got as far as decorating the front...but I plan to finish the inside before Christmas. I have an idea on who will be getting this, but I can't say here :)

I used the raw side of the dress form. I painted it and then I stamped over it.

I cheated a bit on this card. I must confess that I didn't use all Scrappy Chics products on it. I made this card for a teacher at school and I didn't plan on using it for my design team projects...BUT I was sick the entire month of September and I ran out of time. Sooooo, I cheated and used this.

Like I mentioned before, I've been really sick, so I haven't had much time for blogging, or anything really. I finally made it to the doctor and found out that I have bronchitis. I'm slowly getting better and am getting really tired of all this resting business.

I'm hoping to be back to regular blogging soon!

Better late then never...


Sorry I haven't uploaded my latest projects for the September kit for Scrappy Chics. I had a four day weekend this last weekend and I spent every day sicker than sick.

So here are my projects...and unfortunately, this months kit is all sold out. It was a fabulous one!!

Yes, my little guy is a first grader. I love how the embellishments worked so well with the school theme.

My fearless little girl. She loves to show the big kids that she can do it, too! This line of paper from Crate Paper is one of my most favorites. I love all of the girly papers, but the crossword paper is the best!!

Our happily ever after...I love this one. I love the random pictures of me and my family that blend so well with the papers in the kit.

I've been wanting to make a memory box for Bekah's baby stuff. I was just waiting for the perfect line of paper. I told ya I loved this line!! I just used an ordinary photo box and embellished it. I haven't gotten to the inside yet, but I plan on decorating that, too.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I have some wedding pictures that I will be sharing in a few days. My kidlets got to participate in their first ever wedding. And darn it, they looked cute :)

growing up.

It's official, I have a first grader. I don't know how it happened. One minute he was a cute, cuddly baby boy and now he's a know it all first grade boy!! Where did the time go?

Gavin was very excited for first grade. I think he was mainly excited to see his friends that he missed over the summer. While his first day (and week) wasn't all that he expected, I think he'll do just fine this year.

Friday night he did cry about missing his teacher from last year. Mr. S was an awesome teacher and even I miss having him teach Gavin. More teachers need to be like him :)


I completely forgot to post my layout I did for Scrap that Baby! Its a mixture of Crate Paper and Basic Grey. I love, love, LOVE the airplane from CP.

August kits



Summer is almost over (boo.) But since its August 1st, I can show you my projects that I did with this months kit from Scrappy Chics (yay!).

This first one is a card that will be perfect for my cousin's upcoming wedding...

This next layout is not my favorite. I love the pictures of the kids, but I just feel I didn't do them justice.

This next one is a very special layout of mine. I have had these pictures of my Papa's memorial since October. Its taken me this long to find just the right papers to go with it.

Finally, this last layout is my most favorite one that I did with this kit. My first attempt at an accordian flower turned out pretty good :)

I used a lot of leftover goodies from previous kits on these layouts. Be sure to check out what the other design team girls did, here.

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome day!!
