Crate Paper Altered Notebook | SG CREATE Magazine issue 16!

Hello friends! Tonight I realized I haven't shared any of the projects I created for the September issue of SG CREATE Magazine as yet! So I thought it's high time that I share the first one! Here's the notebook I dressed up for the altered card/tag sketch challenge, using Crate Paper's Poolside collection (you'll find it on page 129 of the magazine): 

Supply List: patterned paper, die-cut cardstock shapes, chipboard accents, stand-outs, frame: Crate Paper (Poolside); letter stickers: American Crafts; pen: K&Company; notebook: Hema

I love collecting notebooks and have acquired quite a pile by now. This one came from the "Hema" and looked like this when I bought it:
Looks much better now I've decorated it, right?! 

If you haven't checked out the latest issue of Scrapbook Generation CREATE Magazine yet, then you might want to do so now. It's fabulous! (and I'm not saying that because I'm in it!). 

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Let's Party! | Scraptastic Club & A Girl's Weekend Out

Last weekend 3 of my best friends and I have been away for a couple of days to scrap, shop, watch films, chat, eat and have fun! Here's one of the layouts I made, using the Skinny Love kit from Scraptastic Club (isn't this kit the BEST?! - I adore all the Crate Paper it holds!):

and two detail photos:

I had so much fun last weekend, wish we could do it more often than once a year. We always go to the same place, but this year we rented the cabin next door because it came with a larger table and I've got to admit, it was a big hit! 

A very little impression: the cabin:

Thanks for stopping by again! I really appreciate it!

Perfect Today - Imaginisce

Hi everyone! Today I've got another Imaginisce "Give Thanks" layout for you. I so love the warm, Fall colors in this collection and I can't help reaching for it again and again.

This time I chose a star-burst pattern for my page, so I could use many different sheets of patterned paper. And although the photo was taken in April and not at all in the Fall, I still think it fits perfectly.

I used the Imaginisce's awesome I-Top tool to create the matching brads (22mm). I love that this tool gives you the opportunity to create brads in the exact size and color you wish!

And not only the papers and define, but so are all the other items in this collection, like the die-cuts, the (dimentional) stickers and the enamel dots I used on my page.

Imaginisce: patterned paper, die-cuts, phrase sticker, dimentional sticker stacker, enamel dots (Give Thanks); American Crafts: cardstock, wood veneer paper clip. Tools: Imaginisce I-Top Tool, 22 mm Brad Daddies. Other: digital cut file: Kerri Bradford.

My favorite Imaginisce tool, the I-Top Tool:

World Card Making Day 2015 | Scraptastic Club

Last Saturday it was World Card Making Day 2015 and the design team from Scraptastic Club joined in the fun and created a couple of cards!! Let me quickly share the two cards I made for "World Card Making Day" using lots of Scraptastic's product. 

This card was made using the July This Life Noted kit to create a card for all purposes:

And for this card I used a combination of the May and July This Life Noted kits, plus a stamp from the June Sentiments stamp set. 

This card is for my niece and her hubby who are expecting their first baby! Yay!! 

The kits from Scraptastic Club make it so super easy to create a quick and beautiful card!! If you want to see more card inspiration, then hop over to Scraptastic Club's blog. I'm sure you'll love what the team created!

Thank you soooo much for stopping by and have a fabulous week!

Wonderful Times | Scraptastic Club

And here's another layout created with the Skinny Love kit and add-on from Scraptastic Club. How I adore this kit!!

My daughter and her favorite teacher from High School. It was so fun to get a chance to meet up in Cafe du Monde in New Orleans (love the beignets there!!). And although the photo has got nothing to do either with cats or foxes, my daughter's white powered nose does resemble a cat's nose a bit, I thought.

And you know what? Scraptastic Club's new website is working!!! Have a look! Isn't it fab?!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Louisiana - Pretty Little Studio

Hi everyone here's my very first “Let’s Go” layout. This collection from Pretty Little Studio is definitely my new favorite!! It’s amazing how many fun designs and embellishments this collection contains! It was so great to be able to finally dig in! and I had so much fun creating this page. Lucky for me we travelled quite a lot so I have many photos to scrap with this collection.

I started this layout with the Louisiana digital cut file (from The Cut Shoppe) and took it from there.

My favorite item in this collection is definitely the vellum tape, which is just like washi tape. I used three pieces on my page and as it’s a brand new product in the Pretty Little Studio shop I was very curious to see how this would turn out. Well, it’s awesome! It’s very sticky and very easy to use!! I very much hope all the next collections will contain this vellum tape too!!

And I soooooo love this cut file!! You know Ashley created cut files of every State? Go here to check them out!

Here’s a list of what I used to create my page: Let's Go collection.
Patterned paper: Dallas, Chicago, Portland, Anchorage; Clear sheet: Go West black; Shipping Tags: Salt Lake clear; Flair: Fresno; Clear Shapes: Pacolet; Stars: Spain; Tickets: Define.Travel.; Stickers: GeoTag, Vellum Tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Have a great day!
