I said, I would have more to share…


Amy created this cute “great outdoors” layout with papers from both the Cream of Mush line and the Cold Raspberry line.  Love how she tore the paper below the photo.  Also, love her journaling spot with the bird and butterfly.  Thanks for sharing Amy!


This “card kit” is from Jody…Jody has a great paperie in Wooster, Ohio called the Pink Tomato.  Jodi added yellow cardstock to the JB papers – something I would have never thought of!  Jodi also created a cute little bag to put the cards in.  Cute kit, Jodi, thanks for sharing! 



“Grandparents are Great” layout from Holly.  Holly used the Split Pea collection and the “Oh so Orange” Alphabeans.  Love how she cut the bottom of the star so the tip would go over the photo.  Thanks for sharing Holly!


 Here’s another layout from Amy.  Amy used the white Cream of Mush line for this layout.  She cut several of the trees out and used them with the “Morel” paper.  Cute layout Amy…thanks for sharing!


“Little Princess, Big Chief” from Edna.  Edna got really creative with this page and made a tee pee out of the “Brown Sugar” paper.  Very cute!  Thanks for sharing Edna!


Linda did a layout of her kids using the Blackbean collection.  I love how she cut them diagonally and added 2 different designs.  Thanks for sharing Linda!


“Maria” layout from Kathy.  Kathy pulled the oranges and greens out of the photo and used the Split Pea paper to coordinate.  She also used the Bean Brown Alphabeans and a couple of Journaling Sprouts.  I love how she tore the paper at the bottom of the layout and created more texture on the page.

Thanks everyone for sharing their pages!!  More to come soon!

The photo does not do this layout justice…  Here’s a layout using the white Cream of Mush line.  I love the birds.  I love green and brown together!  You can also see some fun JB Soup ribbons and twill.  Someone from the Columbus Scrappers (was that Melissa?) was asking about twill last night and I didn’t even think about my twill ribbons.  The black and white photo just pops off the page.  I added a pink JB Soup Bean Seed (felt flower) as just a hint of color. 

Other products used: brown flocked letters, Making Memories ; brown cardstock letters, Doodlebug

Thanks for looking!

Got some good stuff to share.  I apologize for the lighting in the photos.



Here’s a very cool “Fall” layout from Emily (Emily works at Scrapbook Groupies in Gahanna and is the sweetest!).  She used the Cream of Mush collection to create that very cool tree.  Love the 3-D leaves too!  Thanks Emily!


Here’s another cute fall page from Kathy.  Kathy used the Spicy Pumpkin collection as well as some JB Soup Bean Seeds (felt pieces).  The girls in the pic are my 2 sweet nieces.  Thanks Kathy!


Suzie created a cute baseball page using the Cold Raspberry line.  The circles work great with the baseball theme.  Thanks Suzie!



“Many Thanks” card from Tracy.  Love that Cream of Mush line!  Tracy used the Half & Half (birds) paper on the inside as well.  Great design!  Cute card Tracy!!



A “Pumpkin Patch” layout from Jamie.  She used the white Cream of Mush line.  Look at that adorable owl!  She cut him out by hand – cute, cute!!  Thanks Jamie! 

More to share soon!

Thanks ladies!  It’s exciting for me to see my paper in action!

Where’s my belly button? November 13, 2008

Another layout I did earlier this year.  The majority of the paper and letters are from Basic Grey; the large graph letters are from Making Memories; the “picture perfect” 3-D button is from K&Company.

This was a time when Kami liked to lift up her shirt and show you her belly.  I love the colors in the layout. 

Thanks for looking!

You may have seen this layout as a store sample.  I thought I would share it here as well.  It’s one of my favorites with the Split Pea collection.  I also used “Brown Sugar” from the Spicy Pumpkin collection.  I find I can use graph paper with almost everything.  The orange, green and brown colors of the Split Pea collection work well for boy pages.  The cute little dude is my nephew Lucas – he’s a sweetheart. 

Also included in the layout are patterned papers from Bo Bunny (orange polka dot) and October Afternoon (green), American Crafts letters, Stampin Up stamp, McGill punch (parenthesis) and wood buttons from JoAnn’s.

The Journaling includes:

Sweet little Lucas, you look sooooo cool dude!  These are some of my favorite pics from our trip to Washington.  You’re just hangin’ out.  The owners of the rental home dropped off this battery operated train.  You loved it!  Everyone got to drive it but you just slid back in your seat and took off!  Love it dude!

Thanks for looking!



3 years of happiness November 10, 2008

This is an old layout…you can tell because we only had one child.  I was trying to do an atypical birthday page.  I thought I was being super creative by drawing all the circles and shapes with crayons – trying to create my own design.  





No, the “e” in years is not supposed to be crooked…it’s lost it’s stickiness.  With some of these old layouts I probably can’t remember most of the supplies.  This one however, I know that most of the stuff used was from Bo Bunny (brads, chipboard letters).  The stamp is from Catslife Press.  I still use these stamps quite a bit.  If you buy them without the wood block – they’re fairly inexpensive.

Thanks for looking!
