NSD 2015 has come and gone, but I must say it was AMAZING! Hip Kit Club hosted a three day extravaganza with fun chats and fabulous challenges. I actually completed 7 layouts! Today's post is just a quick recap of the challenges I completed.
I will admit that I had a scrappy hangover for a few days after the crop. :) Yesterday I received the May kits and I'm getting ready to open them - perfect for Mother's Day. Even if you missed out on the NSD celebration, you can always find inspiration on the Hip Kit Facebook forum. Happy Mother's Day and happy scrapping! xo

A few weeks ago, I watched a Kristina Werner YouTube video with masking and stamping. I was instantly smitten with the design concept and knew I wanted to replicate the look on a layout. I gathered several botanical stamps and a few photos and got started. The concept is that you make a shaped mask (circle, square, etc.) and stamp along the edge of the shape. When you remove the mask, you are left with the most beautiful image. This photo is was taken after I removed the mask. This technique is so fabulous and the options are limitless.
Here is my completed layout. I have decided this is one of my all-time favorite layouts. I can't stop looking at it. :)
Even though this technique was geared for a card, I love that I can use it for scrapbooking. If you'd like to see my process video for this layout, click here. I encourage you to act on the things that inspire you, I'm sure you'll find the magic in the process. Thanks for stopping by, wishing you a blessed and creative day! xo

Spring is in the air and I'm loving it! We are getting into a crazy-busy time of year, with both kids in soccer and all of the end of school year madness. Thankfully, next school year, both kids will be on the same schedule! I'm still trying to squeeze in a little creative time in between all the craziness. Today I'll be sharing a few of my latest layouts.
In case you missed it, I now have a YouTube channel. Here is my latest process video, if you'd like to take a look! https://youtu.be/vSCVsmBCRrw Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! ♥

Now that I've started creating process videos on YouTube, I've been neglecting my blog. It's hard to find the time and energy to do it all. Today will be a quick post, sharing several of my latest layouts to prove to myself that I haven't been a total slacker. :) Most of the layouts were created for challenges on the Hip Kit Club Facebook forum.
I do have a process video for the first layout if you'd like to check it out. https://youtu.be/5YLtbDMYdzY
We are officially on Spring Break and Mother Nature is being a little obnoxious; we had a hard freeze last night. While I'm waiting for it to warm up today, I think I'll do a little scrapping! Happy Spring to you all! xo

This past week has been brutal weather-wise! A little snow, ice, and FRIGID temps have caused school to be cancelled all.week.long. Yay for sleeping in, boo to air so cold that you can't breathe. Of course I always look at forced down-time as a gift from the Scrap Gods. :) Today's post is just a few of my recent layouts using Hip Kit Club kits.
I must take a break from scrapping now and do some chores. We have another Winter Storm Warning in effect, starting late this afternoon, please pray for our sanity. :)
