Layout Share: At 5 Guys

Today I have a layout to share with you. My oldest child, Elliot, is so hilarious. He had his first bacon burger at "5 Guys Burgers" a couple weeks ago, and in true Elliot form, exclaimed, "I can die now and be happy." Where does he come up with this stuff? Love you E-man, thanks for making me laugh.

This layout was made using the May "Country Lane" kit by Paper Bakery. I have loved using this kit.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Scrappin'



Kisses for You: Layout and Card Share

After a very long day of flying, waiting around an airport, and motion sickness (yuck.) I am now happily ensconced in my parent's house for the next 26 days. I just love my family, they are truly amazing, and I am so blessed that my husband, children, and myself have them in our lives.

Isabelle, Elliot, and I are having so much fun just being together, and having some extra time with my parents. In the morning today, I managed to spend an hour getting some scrapbooking done. It was a lot of fun, and I just love starting my day with coffee in hand, and pretty paper on my table. Unfortunately, I am having a lot of problems with my parents Internet, their computer, and what not. It is so frustrating when these things do not work. I enjoy blogging and crafting and I am trying to figure out how to make this work in Washington State. I took photos with my good SLR Camera, but of course I can't upload them, or get my parent's computer to install a free trial of photoshop so I had to come up with a plan B. All of the below photos were taken with my I-phone 4s, edited in Pic-Tap-Go, and uploaded to the blog though my phone. I am hoping that I will be able to come up with a better system in the next week or so, because my mom and I have lots of scrapbooking plans that I would love to share with you along the way.

This is the sneak peak I shared via Instagram earlier today of 2 cards and one layout I created this morning.

The layout was based on a sketch I found on the Lily Bee blog and was designed by Page Maps. You can find their inventive and whimsical sketch HERE. I loved the sketch and knew right away that I had two pictures that would be just perfect to use for this layout design. I really like what I came up with

    Papers: Destination Collection: Postcard, Luggage, Tickets, and Boarding Pass. Other papers: Linen and Patchwork.
  • Embellishments: Destination Collection: Circle and tag stickers and label stickers. Pinwheel Collection: Circle and Tag Stickers, chit chat stickers, and brad, badge, button, and baker's bundle. 
  • Other supplies: Fiskars medium heart punch, American Crafts precision pen, This to That adhesive, Scrapbook Adhesive 3-D Foam Squares, white thread, Marvy Uchida star punch, and Silhouette Cameo.
Next, I decided to play along with the Lily Bee blog again, but this time I would try my hand at a card sketch. You can find the sketch HERE. I love how simple and graphic this is, and could not wait to get started.

For my last project, I decided to use up my paper scraps from the two above projects. One of my favorite ways to use up scraps is to cut the paper into similar sized strips and either use them on a layout or card. This time I chose to use a card and this is what I came up with.

Let's talk crafting? What have you been creating lately? Do you like working from sketches? I find that they are really great jumping off points and I love that they can be followed either very literally or as just an inspirational idea. How great is it that paper crafters have so much free great inspiration out there. What a blessing. What are you finding inspirational these days? Any favorite go to places for sketches? I always love getting new places to turn to for inspiration. Thank you so much for being here, I hope y'all have a great day.

Happy Scrappin'

Crafty State Cut Outs and Bookmarks using American Crafts Lucky Charm

I spent a few hours yesterday evening finishing up a couple of projects that I wanted to complete before our vacation. I was able to use one of my favorite scrapbooking paper collections of all time: American Crafts Lucky Charm. I love this collection, it is so dreamy and magical! The colors are what drew me in initially; navy, seafoam, coral, and pops of yellow, and pink. I am so there!!! To make the first project I am sharing today I pulled together a bunch of paper scraps of Dear Lizzy papers. I hate to waste such a pretty pattern, so I was determined to come up with something to use these for.

 After pulling out my supplies, I looked through the Silhouette Studio software and found two cuts that gave me a great idea. I have been wanting to make some new cuts of Washington State and North Carolina for awhile now, and I was ready to dive in. Here is what I came up with.

North Carolina

Washington State

These states have a lot of significance to me because North Carolina is where we currently live and Washington State is where all of our family is located. We lived there until 2 years ago when we relocated almost 3,000 miles away. I really like how my old heart-shaped buttons worked to pin the areas where we live/use to live in the prospective states. Glad that I finally found a use for those adorable buttons!

How to Make State Cut Outs:

  • Go to the Silhouette online store and download the state cut outs that apply to you. If you don't have a silhouette you could find a state that is sized correctly on your computer, print it out and trace it out carefully onto white paper. Then you would use a craft knife very carefully to cut the shape out. I used THIS cut file and THIS file. For my project I sized the state cuts to be 7.5" wide (since I have an 8.5" x 10" opening in my frame.) I used white 12" x12"American Crafts paper for my Silhouette, it cuts so beautifully. I just set my Cameo to the heavy cardstock setting and set my blade accordingly. Make sure to leave room around your state cut out so that you have a white frame on all four sides, I just roughly placed it in the center of my paper.)
  • Next, take scraps of your favorite scrapbook paper (I used American Crafts Lucky Charm and cut them into strips that are about .5"wide x 8" long.)
  • Place these strips on a plain piece of white computer paper and arrange
  • Adhere the paper strips down (I used both American Crafts this to that permanent adhesive and pop dots, this way some of them would raise up slightly higher than the others.) It gives it a little added dimension.
  • Next place your state cut out on top (make sure it is sized to fit your frame.)
  • Stand back and enjoy your work, and give yourself a pat on the back for using up your pretty scraps!

Since I still had a few scraps of paper left, I decided to make some bookmarks for Isabelle and I to take with us to Washington State next week. We both love to read, so they will be used frequently. They only took me about 30 minutes to whip up and I really like how simple and colorful they are. They just make me happy.

How to Make Bookmarks:

  • Cut background patterned paper scraps to 7" x 2." 
  • Use small strips of paper left from state project (or other scraps about .5' wide) and layer on top of the background paper. 
  • Adhere paper strips once your like your design
  • Attach circular embellishments using adhesive (the one on the left is from the American Crafts Lucky Charm bits pack and the one on the right is cut out with a Martha Stewart 1.5" circular punch from Lucky Charm paper.)
  • Add vintage ticket stubs with tiny attacher
  • Add Lucky Charm Self Adhesive Buttons
  • Add twine to both bookmarks and tie, cut strings to desired length

Products Used:

  • Silhouette Cameo
  • American Crafts Dear Lizzy Paper: Noteworthy, Wild Hearts, Pretty Poppies, Raindrops, Falling Star, Blue Skies, Dream Catcher, and Star Gazers. 
  • American Crafts Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm bits and self-adhesive buttons.
  • American Crafts This to That permanent dot adhesives and foam dots. 
  • 2 heart shaped buttons
  • 2 vintage tickets
  • Twine
  • Martha Stewart 1.5" circle punch.
Let's talk crafting. Have you made any home decor items lately? What about bookmarks? Is it just me, or is pretty paper just the most exquisite thing in the entire world? I swear I frequently dream of patterned paper (true story,) I once dreamt that I lived in a stationary store. One of my favorite dreams to date. What about weird paper-related dreams? Just me??? If you have any questions about how to make the above items, please do not hesitate to ask below. I love to help. Until next time, Happy Craftin,'

Scrappy Share with American Crafts

Today is the first day of summer, and what better way to celebrate then to stay in and scrapbook the day away, LOL. I spent the majority of yesterday outside swimming, and soaking up the sun, so today I took the day off and am crafting away.  We are getting ready to head back to Washington State for four weeks to see family and friends and I am trying to wrap up a few crafty projects before we leave. We will be staying with my parents, and since my mom is a fellow crafter, I am bringing scrapbook stuff as well. 

I have a layout and card to share using American Crafts products. I used elements from the Mayberry and My Girl collection for the layout, and Ready Set Go for the card. I hope you like them.

Products Used:

Eric From: Turtle Rescuer
  • Cardstock: American Crafts white paper
  • Adhesive: American Crafts This to That dot adhesive roller
  • Pen: American Crafts Precision Pen in .03 tip
  • My Girl paper: Loveable Lily and Charming Caroline
  • Mayberry papers: Lemonade Stand, Front Porch, Huckleberry Pie, and Key Lime
  • Vellum: American Crafts Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic gold dot
  • My Girl embellishments: Accent and phrase stickers
  • Mayberrry Embellishments: Adhesive layered embellishments, chipboard stickers, shaped wood buttons

  • Papers from Ready Set Go: Get Cozy and Conference Call

Let's talk packing crafting supplies. Does anyone have any pointers for me? I am allowing myself one small carry-on for all of my scrapbooking, crafty items. Obviously the trimmer and scissors and other sharp tools will have to go in the larger suitcase under the plane, (don't want TSA to confiscate them.) Can you think of any other items that should also be checked? I really, REALLY do not want to argue with TSA about them keeping my scrapbooking tools, trust me, that would not be pretty. LOL. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Have a fabulous day!

Happy Scrappin,'

Card Share: Paper Bakery, American Crafts, and Studio Calico

Summer has definitely arrived. I am finding it much harder to find time to create lately, probably due to a nine-year old that believes I am her personal event planner now that school is out for the summer, LOL. She is so much fun though, so I am enjoying this time, playing with her, swimming, being outside, and looking at life through her eyes. I managed to squeeze in some creative time yesterday, and I had an absolute blast. I am really "feeling" cards lately, and having so much fun stamping, punching, and layering paper. What a fun creative outlet cardmaking is. So thankful that we have so many options to play with paper.

The first two cards I have to share with you today were made with the May Paper Bakery Kit "Glitz Roadshow." This kit is full of so many fun American Crafts papers, Crate Paper, a gorgeous green ribbon, and all kinds of fun bits and pieces. There are still some of these amazing kits available if you are interested.

The next card I have to share with you, was made using THIS awesome stamp set from American Crafts for their mid-release Mayberry Line. I loved being able to use the flower element repeatedly on the card front. I just love this design, it is definitely one of my favorite floral stamps at the moment. I also used American Crafts Zing Cricket embossing powder and white cardstock on this card front.

The last set of cards I have to share with you were made with the Studio Calico Roundabout Card Kit. This amazing card kit and stamp set are still available. I also used Elise Blaha Cripe's exclusive Project LIfe stamp add-on as well. This is also still available and you can find that HERE.

Supplies Used:
  • Paper Bakery May Scrapbook Kit
  • American Crafts white card stock
  • American Crafts Cricket Zing embossing powder
  • American Crafts This to That permanent adhesive
  • American Crafts This to That foam dots
  • Studio Calico Roundabout Card Kit
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink
  • Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink
  • Fiskars stamp press
  • Elise Blaha Cripes' Hello Summer stamp set
  • Ranger Inkssentials embossing ink pad

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Let's talk paper crafting? What have you been creating lately? Anyone else finding it harder to find time for crafting now that summer is upon us? I am making an effort to wake up earlier and to use my mornings to the fullest. Do you have any tips that might be helpful to make the most of creative time? I would love to hear from you. 

Happy Scrappin'

Crafty Organization Thursday: Organizing LIttle Bits of This & That

My name is Toni From and I love to organize. It is just something that is in my nature and finding the perfect storage solution for crafting items thrills me beyond what is probably normal. Regardless of my unhealthy addiction to labels, color-coding, and design ideas, this weekly column, is all about my readers, and a way for fellow like-minded crafters to help one another solve our clutter problems once and for all. Good morning, it's time for another Scrapbook Organization Thursday and today we are talking about how to store all of our little bits of this and that. I will also be discussing how I store my ink pads and my Project Life tools. Last week we discussed tool storage, you can find that post HERE. The other Scrapbook Organization Thursday posts you can find HERE, HERE, and HERE.

All of those little bits are so difficult to sort and containerize. There are just so many different types of embellishments, for example. There are wood veneers, brads, gems, bling, buttons, and let's not forget all of the ephemera packs that so many scrapbook paper lines have come out with. The list is endless and I find that there is not a lot on the subject for how to store these adorable little items.

The systems I use are not earth-shattering or things that others have not probably already done, but they work for me. When you are trying to figure out how to sort all of your little embellishment bits, I am going to suggest you ask yourself these three questions.
  1. If you were designing a particular crafting project and pull out embellishments do you look for them based on type of embellishment (wood veneer, buttons, brads, stickers, etc...?)
  2. Do you search for these items based on color (red, yellow, green, blue, purple...?)
  3. Do you search for items using a little bit of both of these?
If you are like me, you probably found that all three of these were a little bit true. That realization can make it so baffling to figure out how to sort all of this little stuff. What I would highly recommend is to seriously down size all of these little things. If you have less to store, the items you do have are easier to find. Once you have downsized all of your little bits and pieces, then it's time to organize them in a way that makes sense to you and your creative process.

One storage solution that I have found that works really great for embellishments was this letter sorter from Staples. It is from the Martha Stewart collection, but unfortunately I do not see them online anymore. They are just a basic letter sorter/ mail center organizer that you can find just about anywhere. I found a similar acrylic option at The Container Store that has divided sections that I think would also work really well for sorting embellishments. You can find that HERE.

I use this letter sorter for items I have pulled for a project

 this letter sorter is used to organize embellishments by type, such as, 
labels, tags, enamel dots, and mistable shapes

I store other larger embellishments in these three bins. They are located on my white bookcase behind my craft table and very easily accessible.

The first two pins hold my accessories (sorted by type) 
and the last one is for items I have pulled for projects

Now this is my favorite organizing find to date and one that is working so great for me. I use this to sort all of my little bits of this and that which are not kept in their original packaging. This is also working really great for printable labels and embellishments, random stickers that were left on sticker sheets, and also vintage tickets and what not.

  This acrylic compartment box is from the Container Store. 
You can find that link HERE. It is my 
favorite small embellishment organizer ever!

If I want a little embellishment in a specific color I just pull it out, grab what I need, and put it away. I keep this acrylic tray safely stored and tucked away in my white Jetmax cube on my white bookcase located behind my craft table. You can find Jetmax cubes at Michael's craft stores HERE.

acrylic tray storage

I store embellishments that come with kits in little white ceramic bowls that I purchased from either Target, Pier One, or World Market in the $1-$2 range.

kit embellishments

more kit embellishments

shipping tag storage

all of my white ceramic bowls grouped together

The Breakdown of How I Store Little Bits of This and That
  • Labels, enamel dots, tags, and mistables are stored in a letter sorter
  • Items pulled for projects are stored in my second letter sorter
  • I have pull our drawers that store larger embellishments still in their original packaging
  • I use an acrylic tray to sort printable labels, cut out stickers, and other small bits (sorted by color)
  • I use ceramic bowls to sort wood veneer, kit embellishments, buttons, confetti, sequins, and any other bits and baubles.
Let's talk storage. How are y'all sorting your little bits of this and that? What fun ideas have you implemented into your space? My friend, Taniesa, from The Crafty Pickle has a blog post discussing a really inexpensive ( and I believe totally ingenious) way to store little embellishments that you do not want to forget to use. You can find this blog post HERE. If you stop by Taniesa's blog make sure to send her some love and tell her I sent you. 

I will be back tomorrow with some cards to share, and next week I will be soon with another Scrapbook Organization Thursday: Organizing Project Life. Next week, there will also be posts with scrapbook layouts, Project Life, and with a little luck a full studio tour (I am really trying to get the last little bits finished.) I hope to see you here.

I hope you all have a very Happy Thursday and Happy Scrappin'

Eric From: Turtle Rescuer

So I am back today with another blog post. This one, however, is not scrapbook-related, at least not yet. Yesterday, our children celebrated their last day of school (7th grade for Elliot and 3rd grade for Isabelle.) Around the time the kids were celebrating in their classrooms, my husband stumbled upon something quite interesting. He was driving on a highway and almost ran over a small turtle. He quickly turned to avoid hitting said turtle, and then walked back on foot to retrieve the little amphibian before she became road kill. He brought her home and held her out to me, saying, "I have a surprise for you." I asked, "Did you find a lizard?" We have found a few in our neighborhood and I really like them. He said, "No, but kind of similar and bigger." I immediately said, "Please tell me that isn't a snake behind your back?" In North Carolina, there are many poisonous snakes so I was slightly freaked out. He then pulled his hand out from behind his back and showed me this little cutie.

Once I got done screaming, I mean, I thought it was a snake after all, I smiled and thought she was the cutest thing ever. We debated what to do with her. Should we return her to the wild knowing that this area is known for turtles getting killed on the highway? Should we bring her to another habitat and pray that she does well there? Or should we keep her and take really good care of her. . . needless to say....we now have a pet turtle named Tia Tuck Turtle. My husband, kids, and I are smitten and the dogs love watching her in her turtle tank. After some research, I have found out that she is a Eastern Painted Turtle and is about 80-90% full grown. These kinds of turtles spend most of their time swimming in water, but come to shore to bask in the sunlight throughout the day. She is now happily ensconced in a large turtle tank full of water and a floating dock for her to sunbathe on with lots of awesome light.

Eric From: Turtle Rescuer indeed. Hard to say no to man that rescues turtles in his spare time. Love you babe. You are such a sweetie, but no I leave turtle tank cleaning to you as promised.

See y'all tomorrow and Happy Scrappin'



Project Life 2013: Week 22, May 27th - June 2nd

It's Tuesday, which means time for another Project Life share. This week, I am using items from the American Crafts Mayberry and My Girl paper lines. I have a complete product list at the bottom of the post. I have really enjoyed working with both of these vibrant collections, and love the happy spring colors, the sparkle, the sentiments, and the fact that they are just so darn easy to use. This week was full of sunshine, pool time, and crafty organization around here. As an added bonus, our niece Kayla, came to visit us. The kids were thrilled to have her here (as were we) and I loved having another grown-up lady in the house. We miss her so much and hope to see her again soon.

When putting together a two-page spread for Project Life, I try to pick a few colors to use throughout the layout. This week, I worked with blues, pinks, greens, yellows, and pops of black in the Mayberry chalkboard labels. The labels are really fun to work with and I loved using them with a white Uniball Signo pen. Normally, my journaling pen of choice is a .03 American Crafts precision pen, but for this added touch, the white pen worked like a charm. I highly recommend both pens.

My Project Life process is as follows:

  1. Photo Selection: I scroll through I-photo and pick out about 15-25 photos I think I may use for this week. The pictures are from both my I-phone 4s as well as my SLR. Usually at this point I have already saved some into a computer file labeled for that week.  For this particular week, the file was labeled: ProjectLife2013/ Week22_May27-June2. I had already saved seven photos there, so I selected another 15 from I-Photo.
  2. I open all of the selected photos into photoshop and edit my photos.
  3. I save the edited photos into the same folder
  4. Print photos onto 8.5 x 11 inch photo paper and 4 x 6 inch photo paper. 
  5. Trim my photos
  6. Compile my Project Life layout (this is the funnest part, followed by picking the photos.)
As I put together my layout I try to move a good mix of photo sizes around the layout. I do not want all of the big photos on one side. I also make sure to have various colors represented throughout the layout. For this week, I made sure to have green elements, black chalkboard labels, yellow, blue, and pink on both pages equally. I am really happy with how all of this turned out. It might be one of my favorite weeks to date. 

Products Used:

  • Becky Higgins Project Life Design A page protectors
  • Pens: American Crafts precision pen in .03 black and Uniball Signo in white
  • Adhesive: American Crafts this to that dot roller
  • Stamps/ Ink: American Crafts Dear Lizzy date stamp, and Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
  • Paper: American Crafts Mayberry Front Porch, Key Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Lemonade Stand, and Picket Fences. 
  • Embellishments: American Crafts My Girl remarks stickers, remark sticker book, and fabric stickers. American Crafts Mayberry chipboard thickers in june bug, cardstock sticker book, accent and phrase stickers, chalkboard stickers, and cardstock stickers. 
  • Other: Tiny attacher, scissors, paper trimmer, white thread, and an embroidery needle.
Thank you for stopping by today, I appreciate you being here and taking the time to read a little about this wonderful hobby. Let's talk Project Life. What systems do you have in place for Project Life? What is your favorite part of putting a week together? What is your least favorite part? Any tips for making the process go smoother? What are some of your favorite writing utensils, adhesives, and embellishments to use? Let's chat.

I will be back later today with a heartwarming story about a man and a turtle. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have a little sneak peak as to what this is about. My user name is fromtastic and there is a link on the right of this blog that enables you to follow me with one click. Later this week I will be sharing some cards with you, Scrapbook Organization Thursday, and some more scrapbook layouts to share. I hope to see you here. Until next time, Happy Scrappin.'

Let's Call this Stamping Week

I enjoy stamping. It's so much fun to try out different techniques ( embossing, stamping off, and coloring) to name a few. One of my favorite things to do with a new stamp set is to come up with a creative way to use them. American Crafts always comes out with fabulous stamp sets, and this past release was no exception. I am completely in love with this stamp set from the My Girl line, entitled, "Notable." I used this stamp set in many different ways in this particular layout I am sharing with you today, and also on some cards I will be sharing with you later this week.

"A Happy Little Spot On Cloud 9"

There are so many options for the large variety of shapes, patterns, and quotes in the Notable Stamp Set by American Crafts. The bunches of bursts are so versatile, I chose to stamp them on either side of where my photo and paper layers would go. This really helps to give the layout an extra layer of dimension and helps the photo pop more. The swirly border piece I used to stamp a border around the entire layout. I spaced this approximately 1/2 inch off the paper edge to allow some room for journaling. Lastly, I used the awesome sentiment "A Happy Little Spot on Cloud 9" for my title. I first stamped the sentiment onto white American Crafts cardstock. I then cut this out and used pop dots to adhere it on my layout to make it stand out more. 

In case you were wondering, the journaling says, "Softball season went by so incredibly fast this year. I had so much fun watching you hit, catch, run, and smile, and smile. You are always very happy to be busy and to be a part of a team. I love that about you so much-your enthusiasm for life, energy, and joyous heart. What a treasure you are."

Products Used:
  • Stamps: Noteworthy set by American Crafts, date stamp, American Crafts Dear Lizzy
  • Ink: Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Navy and Pale Tomato, Brilliance Galaxy Gold Ink, and Versafine Onyx Black Ink
  • Paper: American Crafts white cardstock, white grid paper, kraft/gold paper, and striped vellum by Studio Calico, distressed red paper by Basic Grey. Navy corrugated paper by Fancy Pants.
  • Rub-ons-byAmerican Crafts, Amy Tangerine Yes, Please collation
  • Pen: American Crafts Precision Pen .03 nib
  • Adhesive: This to That Dot Roller by American Crafts
  • Mists: Navy by Studio Calico and Gold Lame by Heidi Swapp
  • Punches: Medium star by Fiskars
  • Other: Gold sequins, paper clip with navy flag (Studio Calico), and shipping tag.
I am loving this stamp set and am excited to use it some more in the upcoming week. Let's talk stamping. What are some of your favorite ways to use your stamps? How about techniques, what is your favorite? Is there something you have always wanted to try? If you have any questions about this stamp set or the layout above please do not hesitate to ask. Have a happy Monday everyone and happy scrappin.'

These were made using remaining pieces of my kit, including; Elle's Studio, Crate Paper, American Crafts, and Studio Calico items. I also used my star punch, a hand-cut heart, and of course misting.

Celebrate Today

We (heart) You Noelle:

This layout uses the serendipity stamp set by Elle's Studio as
well as the You and Me Lovely Stripe Paper

Thank you for stopping by today, I appreciate you being here. I will be back next week with some more layouts, two more weeks of Project Life, an art project for my studio, Scrapbook Organization Thursday, and a glimpse into my altered book for Studio Calico's Happy Little Moments Class.
