First Camellia

The camellias are always one of the first to start blooming in the spring. However, I don't think I have ever seen them bloom in February before. For this layout I used a Serenity at Dusk template by Angelclaud ArtRooom (retired) and Dawn Inskip's new kit Always and Forever. I also used a paper from Dawn Inskip's Light and Shade: Spring kit.

Club Scrap's Crewel & Unusual blog hop

Hi! Where did February go to? I'm sure I have another week to work on my project. I had an idea that I really wanted to do, but realized late last week that the hop was coming up quick. Monday, of this week, I looked at my kit and realized I hadn't even put repositionable adhesive on the stamps and cut them out. Yikes! So, today I'm showcasing a paper layout using Club Scrap's Crewel & Unusual deluxe kit sans stamps. Everything used came from the kit. When you buy a kit you receive a layout idea pdf. I knew which photo I wanted to use but I needed a layout that could be converted from multiple photos to one photo fairly easily. After all I only had one day to work on this! I used the layout card from the Celebrate kit. Seemed appropriate since I spent all of February finishing up the cards that I started for the last blog hop which was using the Celebrate kit. I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

If you didn't get here from the Linky party you will want to go here to see all links for the projects that the staff and design team have done and to see all the links to other blogs that are part of this blog hop. And thank you for looking!

Spring Again

I'm sharing a layout today of the spring flowers blooming in my yard, I used a Blended Memories 01 template by Rosey Posey and Lucky kit by Erica Zane. Right now you can find this kit in February's Scrap Pack. After this month it might end up in her store at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

Thank you for looking!

Celebrate Cards

Here are the rest of the cards from my Celebrate kit. I was pretty excited to find that I was able to get 26 cards all together. That works out to about $3 a card (kit + stamps + shipping). Not bad at all considering what cards cost in the store. I did end up with a bunch of scraps but I'm sure that they will be used else where. On these cards, the wood butterflies and the silver photo corners are from my stash. Everything else is from Club Scrap's Celebrate kit.

Nothing makes me happier than to take pictures of my grandkids. For this layout I used a template from Creative Blending #24 by PrelestnayaP Design and the Okayest Day kit by Bella Gypsy. I picked up the bundle of this kit... so many fun pieces. The journal card and the xoxo title are from a couple other kits.

Thank you for looking!

Lenton Rose

Well, I've been gone longer than expected. After helping my oldest daughter I ended up getting sick. So for the past two weeks I've been babying myself and doing a lot of reading. But I'm back and I have a layout to share with you. I used a template from Creative Blending 21 by PrelestnayaP and the kit Be Cozy by Libby Pritchett.
