Happy Halloween Everyone,

I have a fun Halloween frame to share today. I love the versatility of this magnetic frame. This is a picture I captured from last years Halloween. I love all the funs colors and patterns of this project.

Lets talk paper, the halloween paper is from Doodlebug Ghouls and Goodies Set, this set includes a sheet of stickers. The sequins and bakers twine are also Doodlebug. I just love there products. The frame itself is an oldie from Creative Memories. I won it at a crop ūüôāDSCF5781

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the frame and the rest was stickers. I tied the twine on the clothes pins so they could easily be removed for switching out to the next holiday. DSCF5779

To make the stickers like a banner, I backed them with paper and then cut around them. It worked perfectly since I did not want them to stick to my paper. Then I added the Spooky sticker to the frame as a title and sequins on the banner for a little bling.

A couple¬†of the things I love about this project is how easy it was to make, it took me about 1 hour, and the versatility of this project. I can take this off after Halloween glue it all together and add it to a 8×8 album if I want, or I can save the elements use it again next year with 2015’s picture.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween with your kiddos and are making and recording lots of fun memories.

Hello Everyone, here is a super simple layout that really lets your pictures do the talking. I love the fun colors I chose here, cranberry red, deep grey and mustard yellow. A really great combination and makes the blue and green really pop from the pictures.


Lets talk paper, the red chevron is by Paper Studio, all other patterned paper were from Pink Paislee’s Hello Sunshine paper pack ( this is such a fun set of papers), the red cardstock is Cranberry from Creative Memories (discontinued), the grey I am not sure who it is by. DSCF5296

The tile was fun to make, I welded all the letters together in Silhouette Studio and cut it out as two words, instead of each individual letter. I also added a white border, which I made by cutting it again after offsetting the words. It gave the title just the wow it needed to not be to much with the pictures and still pop off the white. I also added a piece of red and white candy striped twine for a little interest.


This time I used my Silhouette Cameo to write the the tags before cutting, then I went over them with the black glaze pen and it really made them stand out and a glossy. I love how journaling does not have to be a paragraph and that you can use some key words to describe the person or event.

The photo mat, sometimes double matting your picture can really make the pictures stand out more as well as look more classy or fancy. This is a great technique to use for Bridal Portraits, or Graduation pictures.


Now the fun pendants, I basically cut out the 4 different patterns in different sizes and mixed and moved it around and I like the combination then I glued it. I love the layered look that it gives.

Ferocious Friends

Hello again, I hope everyone has been getting some scrapbooking accomplished. This next layout I am about to share to was so much fun. All these pictures on this layout were taken on my phone, but I love the photo booth feel. You can really see the beginnings of a great friendship.DSCF5322

Lets talk paper the dinosaur pattern, I have no idea who it is by. I bought it about 4-5 years ago on clearance. The navy  embossed is bazzil, green grid is Robots paper pack from Hobby Lobby, the rest is just general cardstock. DSCF5324

A fun but subtle technique is to use the gel glaze pens in clear to add accents on your letters or diecuts. You can see it here on the letters in the title.DSCF5323

I also used the same technique here on this dinosaur. I also you the Black glaze pen for the eyes to make them pop.DSCF5326

Again I did a print and cut with my journaling. I love that capability with my Silhouette Cameo it allows me to do so many different things.

Shake, Rattle and Roll

I love documenting all the little triumphs of the first year of life.

DSCF5310 Lets talk paper, the orange grid and lime green gear paper are from the Robots Paper pack from Paper Studio by Hobby Lobby.

A great way to add your journaling is to put it in a diecut or do a print and cut as I did in this layout. Another tip is if your pictures are really dark mat then with a really thin border of white before you mat it on the blue. It really makes them pop.


I made this fun embossed blue paper using the Gear embossing folder by Darcie. A tip to embossing a piece of paper longer then your embossing folder, turn it around to do the other side. I cut the gears out and shaded them using my CTMH slate ink pad to add some depth. As you can see I strategically placed the largest gear to camouflage where the embossing folder didn’t match up.


This title was so fun to make and weld in Silhouette Studio and I made it to curve with circle. I then used my White gel pen to accent the letters.
