I LOVE the layout I have to share with you all today!
I have a Process Video @

I used the Hip Kit Club sketch below by Ashley Horton and am just so happy with the results!
I started with a piece of American Crafts 80lb white cardstock. I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Sweet Mint, Primrose, and Gold to make splatters on a diagonal and then mated my photos on vellum for a soft layer and punched some clouds and stars to use as elements on the page. I made some fringe hearts to use and pieces from ClaudiaVanR Designs collection Let the Sun Shine found on Etsy ( to create the full cluster around the photo's. 
I added the title "Sweet" Dreams using the Fitzgerald font Thickers in Gold and added a bit more Heidi Shine Gold splatters. I used a really pretty watercolor washi tape I found on Ebay to tie the colors into the top and bottom corners, added some Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard, Sherber Shimmer, and Blue Lagoon as enamel dots (LOVE these things!!!) and called it good. Again, Love the results...

Hey guys, I'm back today with a card share and small haul from Tupelo Designs LLC. (Use this link for a 10% discount and FREE shipping in the US
(video at

I picked up the Lawn Fawn set, Loads of Fun, which I used asap to make the card shown here. I also got 3 more Nuvo drops, which I am SLIGHTLY obsessed with, the colors are so beautiful, and the drops are exactly like an enamel drop!!!
I grabbed 2 more of the Ranger super fine white embossing powders, this stuff is great for the embossing/resist technique, as well as a 2 pack of Sistema containers for the embossing powder. I filled the one with the 2 jars of my white and added my spoon to the lid with command hooks.
I LOVE the cartwright pale peach sequins that  I got. This should be a lot of fun to play with, so be on the lookout for a new process video real soon!

I found myself with a little bit of time to play at my desk this morning, got out my Bella Blvd Illustrate Faith collection... and THIS happened!
(Process video is here...
  I drew inspiration from a layout Laura Rumble did on YouTube. It was so pretty I was inspired to use it for these sweet photos I took of my daughter the other day. 
   I started by gessoing my background and used the packaging technique to put some Spun Sugar Distress stain down, and then added some to a Mini Mister to get some spray drops too. 
  After all of my wet stuff was dry, I trimmed all the strips in the back down to the sizes I needed (widest ones are 3.5", then 3" and the vellum is 2.75" wide) I layered them, added a doily and then my photos. I added some strips of washi to the top and bottom, a few wood veneer pieces and enamel hearts. I brushed some Spectrum Sparkle markers over the wood pieces. A few tiny word stickers, journaling and Heidi Shine in Gold and I Really like it!!!

Hey Guys, I'm back again today, with a Process Video ( and a layout. I was inspired by a layout by the Mixed Media queen, Missy Whidden. I LOVE the layout I scraplifted and hope I did it justice. I have side by side photos below.

 I first took a piece of dark blue cardstock and gessoed it to resemble a splash. I then took some Shimmers Dazzlerz in Gummy Beary Blue from SpeigelMom Scraps and framed where my photo would be. I also used some Shimmerz Vibez in Jeni B Bleu and used a brush to get the color on the paper. I used just a bit of Creameez in Berry Hot to bring in just a touch of pink.
  I used some Heid Swapp sequin rub ons to make the rest of the splash on the page and addes some sequins and Nuvo Drops in Sherbert Shimmer, White Blizzard and Blue Lagoon (all glitter drops) to bring in a touch of sparkle.
  I added the sparkle paper I backed her photo with (which was some great wrapping paper from Christmas!!!) in a strip at the top to tie it all together (and to get more sparkle on the page!!)  My journaling in on the bottom right corner and I just LOVE the finished product!!!

Hi everyone.  
 I wanted to take a moment and kinda let you know a little bit about what I do. I am a scrapbooker, first and foremost. I LOVE 12x12 layouts, it gives me a great blank canvas to start with. Lots of room for messy mixed media, glitter, color and my story. Every layout for me starts with a photo and the meaning behind it. I want my kids to look back and know what I was thinking, feeling or just seeing what made me happy. I'm just getting interested in art journaling because time does not always allow me to create a whole layout. I am happiest when doing SOMETHING crafty! 
 I have a YouTube channel I'm really starting to enjoy and relax while sharing layouts, hauls, and just chatting and sharing parts of me with others who are also interested in the creative process like I am.
You can find me here...
 I really hope you enjoy what I am so excited to start here and am looking to share A Lot more of what I create here!!!
Hello Everybody! Welcome to my little creative, crafty corner of the internet!!! I cant wait to share with you my scrapbooking adventures as well as some other creative outlets. Please, join my on this memory keeping, fun and glittery journey!!! So excited to give this a try!!!
