Hello there! Okay so I’m already so behind in my December Daily!! Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time on it, trying to get current. This is my third year in a row, so I know I can do it!Don’t
Don’t you just love those super cute alpha stickers from BasicGrey!
Hello Hello! Your day is about to get much better because yours truly is going to give one of YOU these two stamp sets! I can say personally that I think these stamps are absolutely ahhhmazing and I’m sure they will be staples in my stamp collection for years to come.
How cool is this one with all of the “Created by” and “Designed By” phrases, perfect for any handmade gift. I even think it’s perfect for people who publish their work add one of these on the back and you’ve got a really cute way to make sure your projects have your name of them!
and this little baby is my favorite… it’s a perpetual calendar stamp. Genius I say. I’m obsessed, what a fantastic idea! This stamp will ALWAYS work on your layouts wether you use it tomorrow or in 10 years.
Here’s a few examples of it, ya know, to get the full effect

Okay so I may or may not be listening to Christmas music as I type, but I needed to share these add on pages to my capture album for the summer! Better late than never right!!
One of the many things I’m obsessed with is mini albums. I love the fact that they can be finished, that they are mini (I love all things mini) and that they are a nice creative break from the normal 12×12 scrapbooking that I do. So when BasicGrey announced this new Capture system of theirs I knew right away that I would love it.
and love it I do. I LOVE the divided page protectors, I LOVE the embellishments that go along with the line and I LOVE that BasicGrey has so many cool and different products with this system that a lot of companies don’t offer. It’s perfect for everyday life, and it’s perfect for special occasion scrapbooking. You can check out this post where I feature my December Daily that uses a Capture album.
thank YOU for stopping by and have a great day!!
Hellooooo there! I hope you are all doing well on this fine wintery evening! I know it’s been pretty cold where I live but I hope you all staying nice a toasty! Today I’m going to share with you a little mini album that I made entirely with Fancy Pants Designs new collection Merry Little Christmas, that focuses on Christmas wish lists!! Fun right?!
I downloaded this awesome cut file from the Silhouette store (I’m basically obsessed with all of their mini albums) and it came with four envelopes so I knew it would work perfectly for my little family!
Basically each person in our family has their own envelope and inside each one is a pre-made little wish list. Now we haven’t filled it in yet but I figure we still have some time till the big day. Isn’t that so fun! I think it will be fun to look back on this little list in 50 years and think about the things that were popular at this time in our lives, think of it like a little time capsule!
thanks for stoppin by! Hope you have some fun paling with paper!!
I saw a bunch of different wreaths on Pinterest and when I found this bare wreath on sale I thought, hey why not! I’ve never made a wreath so I was really excited to get started! I used these beautiful cut files from the fabulous Lori Whitlock, of which I am a huge fan, love, love, love her stuff.
I immediately knew which papers I wanted to you, BasicGreys Persimmon of course! It was such a simple project to make! I cut out 4 different flowers, secured all the different pieces with a brad, and then hot glued them onto my wreath after adding a simple burlap ribbon.
Okay, so there are probably a bunch of other things that I could or even should be blogging but I just couldn’t help myself!! I’ve finished my December Daily cover and first page!
As most of you know I’m a sucker for navy so when I decided on using this album from basicgrey I thought, should I paint it navy? uhhh YES!!! Yes, I should! It took foreverrrrr for the paint to dry though…. but when it was finally finished I had a blast embellishing the cover.
I’m in love with the way it turned out! I’m especially excited because the main product that I’ll be pulling from is BasicGreys 25th and Pine which incorporates a ton of navy, heck yes! So, I know it’s not the first of december yet but I just couldn’t stop! I love, love, love page protectors and this year I’ve decided to use only page protectors and no actual paper pages. I’m quite excited about this because last year when I pre-made a lot of my pages, I found myself frustrated because my pictures either didn’t work well with the pre-made page or an element needed to be moved over a quarter of an inch or something similar. So this year I’m not really pre making any of my pages and I’m going day by day. I’m not too worried though, I always have a ton of ideas for page protectors!
Woah, 2 post on one day? That just might be a record!! Do you need some ideas for your Holiday gift wrapping? Well don’t worry because today’s blog post over at BasicGrey is all about that!!
Be sure to stop by and leave me some love!!
okay y’all…… I’m just a tad bit excited about this…… my very first cover… Imagine my delight when I got the e-mail several months ago that I got picked up for this amazing publisher. We were in Seattle for the hubbys graduation, and we just happened to be shopping late at night after the kids went to bed. I was ecstatic!!!! I was totally on cloud nine and I could barely contain my excitement!
Then a few weeks later I got yet another e-mail from the fantastic Tammy Chenault saying I was up for consideration for the cover page! whhhhaaaa!!! uhhhhh….. whhhaaaa
so I sat and waited…. and waited.. and waited and to my surprise I saw this little baby when I logged on to the Northridge website to access my issues.
so let’s just say I’m just a little excited to share this news with you guys today! I’ve been keeping it in for several months and I’m so happy to finally be able to share!
