I also love the Elle's Studio stamps! I used Tim Holtz's inks to stamp onto the paper. 

My favorite part of the layout is the title. Instead of adhering the banner pieces I stapled them on :)

AC Guest Designer!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!! And happy it is :) Today I get to share the amazing news... that I am the Guest Designer for American Crafts today. I got to work with the amazing XOXO collection.

Here's what I came up with:

"I Like You, A Lot" Card
I just adore the colors in the XOXO collection!! The pinks paired with the teal makes for one amazing color combo.

"Down the Rabbit Hole" Layout
I wanted to use the XOXO collection for layouts other than Valentine's Day, so I got some pictures together that went with the pink, red, teal, and black color scheme. I just had to do a layout of my sister when she was younger. I'm not entirely sure if this is from Easter or Halloween. hahahaha!

"Love U" Layout
I love the black accents in this collection!! It breaks up the pink and red just enough so the collection can really be used for many things. These are just a couple pics I had snapped with our pooches :)
"Operation: Deckhand" 

"Love Notes" Notebook
I love making notebooks and this one will be used a lot!! I wanted a notebook that my husband and I can jot down our dates, our funny sayings, or anything else we want to remember.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects today using American Craft's XOXO collection!! Hop on over to the American Crafts blog for a chance to win some goodies on THIS POST.

Bang Bang!

Hello all!!

Christmas is almost upon us! I'm super excited. Mostly because I will have more time for crafting :) I wanted to share a layout I did using The Paper Bakery's December kits AND My Favorite Things Stamps and Die Cuts by Laina Lamb. I am not much of a stamper but I am IN LOVE with these stamps as well as the adorable die cuts.

"Bang Bang!" Layout

I hope you guys love this layout because I do!! I just HAD to scrapbook a page about my new haircut.... I hadn't had bangs in over 23 years!! But I love my sassy new look. I love the die cuts and I love the simple look of the word stamps... they are perfect for one stamp or a cluster of stamps on the page :) 

I will see you all soon.
