Post-Christmas Card Show off

Hi there! I couldn't post these before Christmas because then there might not have been some surprises under the tree! Here are a couple of the Christmas cards I gave for Christmas - I love all of the options of traditional and non-traditional Christmas colors!

This snowflake card was created using the kit Wonderland by Paste Optional Designs.

This winter scene and star card was created using Winter Wasteland by Princess for Life Designs.

And this one with the fantastic ornaments was created using a kit I received for signing up for the newsletter at a new digital scrapbooking site opening in January - Design House Digital - isn't it great? If you like it go sign up! It looks like they have a really great lineup of designers - I look forward to checking the site out when it opens!

And check back here on January 1st to see a layout and project I'll be posting for the DST January Hot Product - it just might be by a group of designers I've posted about on my blog before :) !

December DST Hybrid Project

I created a fun hybrid project this month using the DST Hot Product - The Wedding Collection by Scrapbooks Gone Digital

I used some papers from this kit and layered them to cover some oh so boring manila folders - now they look elegant and sophisticated!

And here's another take on these folders using the Mouse Collection by Scrapbooks Gone Digital.
This is fun and festive and ready for planning a special trip!!!!!

Link me up if you've customized file folders - I'd love to see them!

Log Your Memory

I've been checking out this website - Log Your Memory - that has been featuring some layouts from the digi community. I found out about it because they posted one of mine. Well now two!!! They feature a calendar, journal, with prompts and so much more - I think it sounds pretty neat.

Check these posts out to see me!

I enjoyed celebrating Krystal Hartley's new CT blog ( It's her designiversary - She created this wonderful mini kit called Fresh Baked Fall for the occasion. I used it for two challenges and I won them both!

Here's the hybrid party cone I created:

using a template by Mirkwood Designs.

Here's a scraplift I created inspired by one of Krystal Hartley's own layouts!!!
As you can tell there's a bit of a theme in these two projects - I'm on a wellness journey - and I have to say that I am starting to feel a bit better already!

World Card Making Day

In honor of world card making day - I am featuring a fun card I created using Butterfly Birthday by Elise Hansen. It's a fun square card and the inside says "Wishing you a special day!". I also made a fun matching square purple envelope. The tag on the front allows for writing a name/address that is visible - even when you HAVE to make your envelope out of a darker paper.
Have a fun day celebrating!

DST October Featured Hot Product

After creating this project I was chosen for the Creative Team at Digishoptalk - "the hub of the scrapbooking community." Each month they feature a different product from around the digiscrapping world. I think it's fun to show all of the variety available to scrappers. And it will introduce some of us to designers or highlight some we know already!

So now at the beginning of each month - I'll post a project with the featured kit! This month is Sunshine and Songbirds by Digilicious Designs available at Divine Digital. I created a "Sweet Tweet" box. Yummy chocoloates or other treats can be placed in the individual pockets to give to someone special.

Digi Layout Idea Notebook

I made this for the ReNEW it challenge for this month at ScrapMatters. I don't have any children so I adapted the pages to create an inspiration notebook in which to record my ideas!

Here's the inside cover - the phrase "create and celebrate everyday" shows up beneath the pages - I hope it's inspiring!
And finally here is the back cover! I used the kit One Fine Day by Happy Scrap Girl - I love so many elements and papers in this kit!

Can't wait to start using it!

Frames - Dazzling Decor at SM

I've participated in the Dazzling Decor challenge at ScrapMatters this month - it's a lot of fun - to create a frame!

This is my frame-

I used the kit Birds of a Feather by wm[squared] - Love all the patterned papers! I used some Glossy Accents - to make my printed flair raised and shiny!

Aloha Hula Monkey!

Amy Sumrall created this super cute kit called Hula Monkey - I love the colors and shapes!

Here's the card I made with this kit!

This is the first card I have made that pivots at the top left corner (instead of folding open). I kinda like it!

I used the alpha from her kit Desmond and Molly Jones to create the Aloha greeting on the inside of the card.

Oh, and the monkey shakes too!

Seascape Light

I created this light cover using Seascape by Dirty Feet Designs.

Wouldn't several of these be perfect with little votive candles to decorate for a summertime party or perhaps for a night of relaxation!

Of course me being Little Miss Afraid of Open Flame Near Stuff That's Important to Me and also Little Miss Afraid of My Fire Alarm Being Set Off - I am using little flashlights or click lights to get the same fun effect!

This is my first time printing on vellum and I think it worked out wonderfully!

Pop Up Card and Shopping Bag!

This is a fun combo - a pop up card to give along with a gift bag of goodies! I used Lady Bugga by Jennifer Barrette and Lauren Grier to create these fun projects!

Here's the inside of the card - I made the flowers stand out and the ladybug pops up from the flower when the card opens!

Here is a super cute shopping bag I created using a template by Simply J Studio. It's so easy to use - perfect size to print on letter size paper and the template comes with other sizes too! My favorite part is that the flaps on the bottom do not require glue so you can fold the bag down for storage or reuse!

Love this little ladybug - had to put her on the back - for a little surprise!

Stay tuned for more - I am having a blast of a month at ScrapMatters!

Let's Celebrate!

Toot! Toot! Let's celebrate my new blog and my feature in Gallery Standouts!

I created this using Hot Feet, Cool Treat by Amy Sumrall and Pamela Donnis! and a template created by Casey Krause. I printed out an extra copy of the game boards to cut out the different pieces. Then the pieces can be placed in a basket to call out the pictures and letters during play!

Curved Flap Card/Envelope

I created this project using a template by Casey Krause and the kit Hop, Skip, Jump from the Lily-pad. I love the versatility!

Here are pictures of the back and the front.

You can use this as a card and write in the center or as an envelope and tuck your card inside.

I also created fun stickers to close the envelope - I couldn't decide which I liked best so I made them all! I think each sticker gives the same basic card a fun and different character!

Thanks for looking! I'm looking forward to posting about more fun projects!

It's Time!!!

It's time I started a blog to display some of my hybrid and digital creations. Please pardon my dust while I spend some time making it look pretty and shiny!Thanks so much for visiting and please feel free to comment or email me!
