Total Tummy Hater

I am loving this page-- which is good because I hated my last one!

I used the current sketch from Creative Scrappers, which I also loved! I dug through my stash of papers and found some American Crafts Hello Sunshine that I haven ever used and thought they would be perfect with these photos of Alaina that I made black and white! Lainey is really hating being on her tummy right now, which is where I came up with the title!

I used my Cameo for the speech bubbles, arrows, heart border, and picture frame! Thanks for looking!

Scrapbooking Frustration!

This LO came out of pure frustration! I had originally started with the current Studio Calico sketch, which looks nothing like the way this LO turned out! I am still not totally happy with this LO, but I wanted to be done with it. I think one of the reasons I dislike it so much is the red CS background. I am not sure

Anyways, it is of adorable photos of my niece, Alaina. So in that way.. it is super special!

Title Pages

I have an awful need to put my scrapbook pages in chronological order, but I absolutely do NOT scrap them in that order... which creates a problem. I have stacks of pages of more recent layouts and gaps where pages need to go.

I wish I could get out of this chronological mind set, but I do really like them in order! What do you do? This page is the title page for the book of Dec 2010 through May 2011. I probably have 50 or more pages stacked up after this book. And what will happen is that I will end up skipping pictures that I probably would have done, but I would rather work on the new pictures! Am I the only one who has this problem?

I used the December Studio Calico kit on this one. It started out slow and I thought I was going to hate it, but I really don't mind it! TFL!

The Christmas season is here!

I have two LO's to share with you today! The first is of a photo of Ryan and I at our family Christmas last evening. It turned out super nice and I wanted to scrap it right away! I used lots of the embellies and stickers from the December Scrapbook Circle kit and then I used papers from the OA Holiday Style collection. I used my Cameo to cut the title. Like I've said before, I love all the gold out there right now and I even used it to match my shirt! :)

The next LO is a wedding layout of my flower girl and junior bridesmaid. Aren't they adorable?! I used a lot of the Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic collection - it is such a fun and versatile collection. I also got into using the gold again! I really like that gold diagonal washi tape! TFL!

My first Christmas Layout of the season! I used this month's kit from Scrapbook Circle and went to town! I used my Cameo to make my title. I have wanted to do the negative title with another paper underneath it for so long, but haven't been able to until I got my cameo! The Cameo has really added to my scrapbooking! I love it!

This photo was taken on Sunday evening after I got home from work. We had our first blizzard of the season this past weekend and got about 14 inches of snow! I love it! We are set to get more snow this weekend. Fine with me :) It is beautiful.

I am just LOVING the MME enamel dots. I wish I could just have thousands of those in many different colors! They are so cool! I am also loving all the gold out there right now! TFL!

I Love her Chub

Hello!!! I had a day off from work today and it was great! I started this page yesterday and I was able to finish it up today. We have had lots and lots of snow here and I am loving it! 

I got to babysit this little peanut on Saturday evening and it was so much fun! I used my Cameo for the "fun" frame which is a cut I got from Lillith Eckels and the heart negative was also cut with my Cameo. I am loving all of the fun stamps that come with the Studio Calico kits. I never really liked stamps, but they make awesome stamps that aren't themey. TFL!

I just can't believe I have been missing out on the Cameo for so long! There is so much that it can do. Lots of people are also really generous and share their cut files. As soon as I figure out what I am doing with the software, I plan to do the same!

When I first started this LO and got the masking done, I didn't think I was going to like how the finished product would look, but I do! I thought using all the different colors in the mask would be perfect because the bride had all the different colors in her bouquet! I used more Sketchbook (I just love that line) and made use of my Cameo again. The last thing that I added was the tiny arrows around the outside and I think it really put the LO together! 

And more Cameo love with this one of course! I found that super cute heart background in the Silhouette Store and it sure took a long time to cut out, but it was so worth it! I used some of the hearts from the cut in other places on the LO. I am really into the arrow fad that is going on. I hope it isn't going away anytime soon! TFL! 

A few Layouts

Here are a few LO's that never got put up on my blog. I have been pretty busy with work lately, so sadly, not much time for scrappin'!

This LO I made from a Studio Calico sketch challenge. I never got to submit it though. I used last month's Studio Calico kit! The photos are from one of our bridal showers this summer. 

This LO is of my beautiful niece Alaina. This is my favorite photo from her professional photos. The photographer that did her photos is the same as my wedding photographer. I used a lot of the Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic on this LO. 

This last LO is the first LO I made with my new Cameo! That thing is so cool and the possibilities are endless with it! The photo is from my bachelorrette party this past summer. I used lots of Sketchbook and diecuts from the Cameo! TFL!
