Spring has Sprung:
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit, 3D foam tape, Prima Inspiring Creativity flowers, and KaiserCraft Pearls.
Fussy & Fancy Challenge #43 – Use a Lot (pearls!)
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit and KaiserCraft Pearls.
Bloom & Grow:
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.
These pages are all from the same kit and that’s all you get but I do have lots of diecuts, rubons, and chipboard left over to make more pages or cards. For me it was a worthwhile splurge because it made some quick, easy, and cute pages.

When I found out the theme for the August Scrap Our Stash Challenge was to “re-do” something I thought I was in trouble. I am not one to go back and redo any of my layouts. I’m just glad they got done in the first place! Plus, it’s interesting to see how my scrapping style has changed over the years. It’s also funny to hear compliments for some of the layouts that I don’t really care for; we all have different tastes. So back to the challenge….my second child turned 10 this year and this ended up to be the perfect opportunity to get something completed in a timely manner. For my first, I had created a 10-Years of You album that featured a photo of her each of her 10 years. So I decided to “redo” that same project for my second 10-year-old. Let me tell you it was much easier the second time around! I simply used the same album and layouts, choosing different papers and embellishments to suit a different personality. The only trouble I had was that I stamped all the numbers and did the album backwards and when it came to doing the title it did not match my front cover paper. Not a big deal to switch it up and I even used a number 3 in place of a the letter E. The cover paper did just happen to have a nice lace/ribbon border that looked great on the front cover. Here is the outcome:
Supplies used: CTMH All-Sorts Mini Album, DCWV patterned papers (stack), CTMH White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Mark Richards Crystal Stickers, EK Success Precious Finds Adhesive Gems, Colorbok Gems Adhesive Accents, Miss Elizabeth Foam Letter Stickers, Basic Grey Bling It, and rhinestone border and ribbon from my stash.
If you’d like to see the first album I created, go to this post.

Supplies used: Daisy D’s paper, Diecuts With a View alphabet stickers, Kaiser orange rhinestones, and random brads from my stash.
Layout Challenge: #118 of 210.
These are a fun food for the kids to make. The are made by simply assembling graham crackers, large marshmellows (cut in half), teddy graham bears, and fruit rollups. As far s the layout, the pinwheels are cut out of the patterned paper. I often do this to create my own coordinating embellishments by cutting sections out and adding a few extra touches. With the pinwheels I added brads to the centers. If I had to do over again I would make the rhinestones around the large pinwheel straight down instead of trying to make it curved. I used Sketch #19 from Scrap-A-Little.

Products used: Prima Say it in Crystals, Queen & Co. Felt Fusion, Darice rhinestones, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Miss Elizabeth vellum sticker, Heidi Grace patterned paper, CTMH cardstock, and unknown letter buttons. Based on a sketch from ScrapSketch. Layout Challenge: #24 of 210.
This month I am a guest designer at Scrap Our Stash. The March challenge is to combine the old with the new. That was the inspiration for this layout. I pulled the paper out of my “old” collection and I have had those letters forever and just haven’t gotten around to using them. The vellum sticker quote was also from my old stash. The felt border and bling are both new favorites. I used Bazzill Basics scalloped circle and traced it on the back of my pattern paper and cut out for my own diecut piece. I also added the rhinestones to the felt flower border. Be sure to check out the Scrap Our Stash Challenge! I’d love to see your new/old combinations!

Stampin’ for the Weekend – Fiona’s sketch
Penny’s Challenge #20 – Chalks
Quixotic Challenge #10 – Ink up an old stamp
I stamped the flower with Versamark ink and then rubbed chalk over the top with an applicator. It is so much fun to see the color appear! I finished the stamped image and really liked it but the paper I had picked out for it just didn’t look right so it took me awhile before I ran across this paper. It’s very different colors than what I was looking for but I love them! I liked the ribbon for this card and added multiple layers for a more solid look. The stamp I used is from a set that I just had to have. It was fun to finally use it!
