Here comes another kit reveal for The ScrapRoom!
Today's flavor of the month is "Hustle & Heart" from American Crafts.
I LOVE the bright vibrant colors in this collection! The kit provides a nice variety of prints from small and subtle to big and bold. This wonderful mix made it an easy kit to work with for the Freak Fast Formula. I chose the bold stripe for the largest cut as I wanted to showcase that piece in a big way. From there it was just playing around with the different patterns and embellishments until I came up with something that made me happy---which was super easy with this one! I enjoyed playing with this collection so much that I just may need to find myself some more!

It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is 
Fancy Pants "Dream Big".
I asked my friend Cassie to send me some photos for this one. For some reason, I was having a hard time envisioning any of my own photos here. Looking at hers though, I totally could have used some of my own that are very similar. Oh well. I got to scrap for a friend and now I will send this layout off to her. 

I like the subtlety of this collection from Fancy Pants. Nothing too bold. I love the pops of red against the soft blue, pink and tan. It's just a nice calm blend of colors and prints. The sentiments are positive and uplifting.

Love XOXO

Hey there!
 I have another Flavor of the Month up from The ScrapRoom today.
This one features a collection from My Mind's Eye called "Blush".
This collection has that rose gold that is so on trend right now. It's paired with a soft pink and a navy blue that adds some nice contrast. It just happens to go beautifully with these pics of my Lucy kitty being her gorgeous fluffy self. I went with one of the solid prints for my background and then cut the pretty floral, using half of it as my backdrop. The remaining prints I cut into various sized strips to create banners. I didn't feel it needed a lot of embellishing so I kept it pretty simple, using a few stickers and then some die-cuts from the embellishment kit. I love the soft look...just like my kitty!

Think Happy

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Hello again! Today I have a layout featuring a collection from Crate Paper called "Carousel" . It's one of the September Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom.
This collection designed by Maggie Holmes is so fun and playful! The ticket embellishments drew me to look at some photos taken at the local country fair a few years back. I went full on patterned paper for the background, piecing it together rather than using a full sheet. There is such a great mix of prints in this fotm kit that I wanted to use it all! I even cut some kites from one piece to create additional embellishments. The sequins were a great little add too. I had a lot of fun with this one!

Downtown Skate Park

It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is Photoplay Paper, "Freestyle".
I have two boys so when I saw this FOTM kit, I knew just what I wanted to do. My boys only went to this skate park once but fortunately for me, I had not scrapped the photos yet! I took advantage of the 4x6 and 3x4 cards putting them to use in my photo grid and even using one as a title block. I went heavy on photos and used pretty much every embellishment in the kit. This one came together super fast and easy!

Tropical Vacation

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Hey there!
 I have Flavor of the Month #3 up from The ScrapRoom today.
This one features a collection from My Mind's Eye called "Palm Beach".
This collection made me think of Hawaii. I have yet to scrap all the photos from a trip way back in 2005 so I went there and found these two of me and my son in one of the hotel pools. I really like how this combination of colors, prints and cute embellishments turned some rather bland photos into something pretty. This kit was a lot of fun to work with.

For this layout I was inspired by an older sketch from a challenge site called Sketchy Thursdays. I pinned it long ago to my Pinterest sketches board. If you'd like to see it you can find it HERE.
