Fathers Day Brag Book

I had been looking for something to make for my husband for Fathers day and came across this little book in Lori Whitlock's shop and thought it was perfect. It was really easy to assemble and decorate.
I used the Dragon Tails paper collection from Doodlebug. Such a darling line!

USA Banner

Wower! its been a while. Amazing how quickly real life can get in the way of your hobbies, me time, crafting.. After two months of a paper buying dry spell I came across this super cute line of paper by Authentique called Heroic. The colors are so rich, the images spoke to my America loving heart, and the plaids, just beautiful.  I knew what I wanted to put together as soon as I got my new haul home.

The cut files are all from Cricut Design space. I also picked up some ribbon and lace trim from Hobby Lobby. The sparkle stars I had in my stash. Thanks having a look.

Love You More Layout

I have a love hate relationship with traditional scrapbooking. I love the creative process, the paper, and the beautiful finished work. But it takes me forever sometimes, I get discouraged because it doesn't look as cute as I envisioned, and so I stop. My memories don't get preserved and I'm sad.

I have found a remedy to my problems.. and I will talk about that in another post in the near future. But for now. I have been inspired by the girls on the Paper Issues blog. They have all kinds of tips and tricks to keep you motivated and inspired. Monthly sketches, Scraplifts, and free cut files just to name a few.

This layout was inspired from a recent Scraplift Sunday post. The paper I used comes from the Authentique Beloved collection. The love you more cut file is from Cricut Design space.

You Float my Boat Card

While I was at my local favorite scrapbook store I came across this paper by Authentique, so cute. I knew what I wanted to do with that heart and anchor paper instantly.

This card svg is from Lori Whitlock's shop. There are several in the valentines collection. All very cute and definitely give your valentine a wow if you make them. They come together very quickly so several could be made up in mo time.

My Funny Valentine Banner

I don't know what it is about Valentines day paper, but I want it all! This paper by Pebbles Inc. Is one of my favorites this year. The cute little sayings, the color pallet, and the images. Ahh! So cute.

The Donut!
The paper collection includes a sheet of 2x2 images. As hard as it was I cut it up and used my favorites for this banner. I then added a scalloped red square to the 2x2, cut some simple pennant's, and assembled. Instant cute.

Loads of Love Box card

Now that Christmas is over I can officially start my Valentines Day crafts. WooHoo! I like all holidays but Valentines is probably in my top three. I have enjoyed this holiday for as long as I can remember. Making paper heart animals in kindergarten, getting ding dong ditched valentines, heart shaped sugar cookies from Grandma, chocolates from Mom and Dad,  and making and passing out valentines every year in school.

I have continued the making and passing out valentines tradition. This year I plan on doing a few styles. This one was inspired by a Christmas box card by SVG Cuts and a retired stamp set from Stampin Up called Loads of Love.  So cute, that vintage truck was a huge hit at Christmas so why not Valentines day too.  Loads of love coming at you. Thanks for visiting!

Christmas Gift Idea

This is a super simple gift idea. I went to a local holiday boutique in search of some unique meaningful gifts this year. I was lucky and found some really great things. One of which was a unfinished wood heart from the Lolly Jane girls.  I found a sheet of wood grain paper in my stash, cut the letters out of vinyl and glued it all down with mod podge. I add a tulle hanger to the back and now it ready for its new home in Alaska. (sorry if I ruined surprise Alaska family)
