Hello, friends! Welcome to the Clique Kit Pep Rally. Today I thought I would share some quick and easy cards using Clique Kits "Bee You" kit. I'm trying to challenge myself to create cards with bits and pieces left from creating layouts. To keep things simple, I'm using white and kraft cardstock (from my stash) as the card bases. The ephemera pieces from the Hazelwood collection were the starting point for the first card. The mason jar was popped up with foam adhesive and I tucked the flowers into the jar.I fussy cut the "love" and attached it to the front of the jar. I love this card because it's so versatile. blog for tons of inspiration today! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Today I'll be sharing my second layout as Guest Designer for Clique Kits using the gorgeous "Bee You" kit. The starting point for the layout is the Feb sketch, designed by Kristine Davidson.

Hello, friends! I want to share what's going on in my scrappy world. Several months ago, I was asked to join the Noel Mignon Design Team, for the Jan-Jun term! Obviously, this was very exciting and I couldn't wait to get started. Here are two of the layouts I've created with the Little Bird Classic Kit. If you'd like more detail, hop over to the Noel Mignon blog.
I had an epiphany a couple of days ago... As much as I ADORE scrapbooking (and will always do it on some level), I realized there were so many photos that I love and would never have the time or space to scrap them all. Rather than printing photos and sliding them into photo albums (again, takes up space) I decided to make a 12x12 photo album annually. It's so easy to upload photos from your computer, Facebook, and Instagram. In just a few hours, I had a completed album with all of my favorite photos from 2016! 59 pages in a pretty, THIN book. When I receive it, I will be sure to share some photos with you. This is the cover of my book; I can't wait to receive it!

Hello, Friends! I can't believe it's already time for my favorite layouts of the year! This year was an absolute whirlwind and I'm hoping 2017 is a little more calm. :) My scrapbooking came to a screeching halt, with the move and house renovation, but I did manage to come up with my 10 Ten Faves of the year.

The holidays are upon us and I'm thrilled to be finished with our kitchen renovation! Today's post is just a quick before and after. We took out a wall and fireplace between the kitchen and great room to create an open floor plan. As you can see, it was quite the construction zone and I almost lost my sanity trying to live here through the process.

Hello, Friends! It's been ages since I've blogged because life has been crazy (and exciting) with a house renovation. I thought I would share some before and after photos of rooms, as we complete them. We bought a house mid-August and started renovating immediately. We loved the house, but needed to open up a couple of rooms to make it work for our family. We tore down walls between the kitchen and great room and between the kitchen and dining room. We love big, eat-in kitchens because everyone always wants to hang out there. This photo shows the space during the tear-out phase. If you know me at all, you know I don't do well with chaos, so this is not my favorite stage of the process.
This is the space now. The wall color is my new favorite - It's so fresh and pretty and it just makes me happy! (Benjamin Moore North Shore Green #456) Since the kitchen and dining area are one space, we also painted the kitchen the same color.

Hello, Friends and Happy Labor Day to my fellow Americans! Although it appears from by blog that I have dropped off the planet, that is not the case. We moved to a new house last week and needless to say, life has been a bit cRaZy! Today I am thrilled to be a guest designer for The Cut Shoppe blog! Cut files are such a great way to add impact to your layouts. Ashley creates the most fabulous and versatile cut files; be sure to stop by her shop! Here is a little snippet of my layout on the blog today.
Thank you, Ashley, for this opportunity! I'm hoping to get my craft room set up in the next couple of days... I'm getting the urge to be creative!
