April Pattern Happy Projects

Hey everyone!  I am excited to pop in and share my first design team projects for Pattern Happy.  My first project was a spread for my #52favorites album...isn't Piper so super cute in her tub 'o letters?! 

The second is a layout I created with a free file from The Cut Shoppe.

The bright colors and happy patterns from Pattern Happy are all so awesome!  I'm instantly inspired to create with them!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi everyone!  I realized that I never shared my March Jillibean Soup projects with you here...here are the two layouts I made for March...

The first is a layout documenting the many faces of Miss Piper...she's so stinkin' cute and her shirt in these photos is super accurate:



The second is Miss Piper's 6-month spread:

Hey, hey!  I wanted to pop in and share some of my recent spreads for my #52favorites album.

Special shout out for my Week 12 spread, which was created for my guest designer stint at the Inspired By challenge blog.  We were asked to create a project inspired by this image:


Here is what I created for it (using an older Felicity Jane kit):

XOXO || Pretty Little Studio

Hey all!  So sorry I've been MIA.  Piper and I were visiting both sets of her grandparents for the past two weeks, but now I'm ready to get back in it :)

While I was gone, I had a page up on the Pretty Little Studio blog.  I played with the XOXO collection some more and created a quick layout with it.  I combined it with the XOXO cut file that was one of the freebies last month to create this:

I must say, I am sooooo proud of myself for using this bright purple background.  I always use a white background, so this was way outside of my comfort zone :)

Have a nice week!

Cousin Love || Color Cast Designs

Hi everyone!!  I recently shared a layout that I created for Color Cast Designs using a few of the releases from January and February.


I really love this layout.  It's very simple and it came together in abut 15 minutes.  I love the photo and love that the photo is definitely the focus of the layout.  I actually created a collage consisting of this photo and another one and had it printed in a 12x12 size...which mans another large photo layout is coming soon!  :)

Thanks for popping in!

#52favorites Update

Hey, hey!  Happy Monday (if there is such a thing)!  I just wanted to pop in and share a quick update on my #52favorites album.  I am caught up to Week 7...woohoo!  This project is so much easier for me than Project Life...there's hope I may actually get the whole album finished this year!  LOL.

Week 6 used the February Sampler Kit from Scrapbook & Cards Today....lots of Doodlebug goodness included:

For Week 7, I went stash-diving and used the older Bella Blvd/Illustrated Faith collection "She Blooms":

I love this project sooooo much!  More to come soon, I hope!  :)
