Anna Griffin's Juliet Collection!!!

I would like to share the projects that I did with the new Juliet collection from Anna Griffin. This collection is just so beautiful and sweet, full of romance, hearts and perfect for love and Valentine's Day!!! There are gorgeous papers, beautiful floral stickers and embellishments and diecut paper too!

This first page was done making some rosettes from the paper! This is one of my favorite techniques with Anna's collections!!!

On this page I used one of the beautiful die-cut papers. I love the patterns in this collection!

This was a more simple and graphic page, but the colors are still striking together. I especially love the little envelope embellishment!

For this one I used the dotted papers and did some fussy cutting. I also made a large rosette for the background. I also punched it first and then tucked a few pieces of the same punched paper behind a few tears on the mat!

You can find this collection at HSN. I'm sure you will love creating with it as much as I did. And thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!!!!

Favorite Scrapbook Layouts of 2014!!!

Well, a new year is beginning and I am going to try to change my scrapping for the better. I want to try to focus more on the photos and the stories than the embellishments!!! My pages are getting much to fat for my albums! LOL!

I thought I would share my 14 favorite layouts for the year, so here they are! While going through my work I noticed that a lot of my favorites were DT pages for WOW Embossing powders!!!!

This first one is my favorite of the year! I love the Blue Fern paper and chippies and the soft colors made it even sweeter to me, plus the subject of the page was my favorite for the year too! LOL!

This one was done for WOW, it's Patrick when he was little, I just love the photos, and wanted this page to be a fun and happy page! I used lots of Imaginarium Designs chippies here.

 This page was a favorite because I love the color combo, purple is my favorite color, so pink, purple and green plus the soft Anna Griffin die cuts made this a favorite!

 Another WOW page! I used lots of powders here, the background, the clocks, the embellies, and this is Patrick as a baby and on his wedding day!!! Special page!

This was WOW too! I love the photo of Kinsey Graces' first experience with snow!!!! Lots of embossing on this page!

This was just a quick page, but I loved how it turned out. The yellow and black with the photo made it pop!!! This was a simple page, but I liked the turn out!

This was a design team page for WeR Memory Keepers! Loved the colors in this collection!

LOL, another WOW page! This was for our monochromatic theme! I love the photo!

This was a Tresors'deLuxe challenge page, and I won a wonderful prize for it too!!!!!!

Just one of the few pages that I got to do just for fun! Had to use my new Prima flowers!

This made the favorite list because it's me with my sweet little Harley Belle!!! Love her so much!!!! This was a DT page for Cest'Magnifique!

This was a Cest'Magnifique page as well! Love the Lemoncraft papers and elements here!!!!

This is Cest'Magnifique as well, and it made my favorites list because of the sweet pics of Kinsey Grace with her favorite toy "Topper" the giraffe!!!

These were my favorite pages for the year. I will be back later to post my favorite cards. Not so many of them as I tend to do more pages than anything else! I hope everyone has a beautiful and blessed 2015!!!!! Happy New Year!!!!

January Kit Projects for Cest'Magnifique!

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a beautiful and blessed Christmas and Holiday. We are ending the year and starting with the new and I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year for you and your families (human and fur!) Today I want to share my projects for the January Cest'Magnifique Main kit. I also got the flower add-on. You can never have too many flowers!!! 

First is a layout of our youngest ds on his wedding day! I used the gorgeous LemonCraft Forget Me Not papers and embellishments included in the Main kit. I used some flowers from the Main kit and also the add-on kit. The pretty blue ribbon was also in the Main kit. I love the little Bo Bunny Country Garden alpha stickers! I added a little misting to the background and stamped some leaves and that was it!

 For this one I did some fussy cutting on some of the beautiful papers. The floral elements are just stunning on these. This is our dd and granddaughter! Love the sweet pic. There are mostly blues in these papers, but I pulled some of the green and green/blues in this one. I cut the little butterfly from some of the packaging and also drew an extra. I added a few little tiny punched blooms and hand drawn leaves. Also a little faux stitching. I inked the little punched blooms for some dimension and added stickles to the center.

Here are the beautiful blooms included in the Flower add-on kit:

This is another one that I did with a photo from Patrick's wedding day! I pulled from the browns/greys in the collection. I cut the beautiful blue ribbon in half for this and added some liquid pearl. Again just some hand drawn leaves. Some faux stitching and those cute little alpha stickers! All of my projects were created with only the Main kit and flower add-on!

This was done for the sketch for January. This is our precious little Kinsey Grace, she loves her little stuffed giraffe "Topper"! She hugs him and gives him kisses and takes him everywhere with her!! I used the chipboard on this one, painted it white and added liquid pearls! I used a stencil on the background to pull some of the peach color out. Added liquid pearls (again!!!).

Here is the sketch for the month:

I absolutely LOVED creating with this month's kit. The papers are so pretty and the flowers are gorgeous. The kit is so versatile as well! You can check it out here on the Cest'Magnifique blog and store. Please check to see what the DT created with this gorgeous kit!!!

TresorsdeLuxe December Challenge!!!

I didn't really have time to do the December challenge but when I saw the mood board one of the photos reminded me of my childhood. The photo of the carosel reminded me of the magical Season of Christmas when I was a child. Every Christmas for the month of December a Merry-Go-Round set up for all the children. Santa was there, they played Christmas Carols and it was decorated for Christmas. My Daddy took me to ride every year starting in 1958! I went every year until I was probably 6 years old! Didn't think much about it after that. I moved from the area over 30 years ago. I recently found out that the same Merry-Go-Round still operates every year in the same spot!!!! I was so happy to see a piece of my childhood! The picture used in my layout is one of this exact Merry-Go-Round!!!

Here is the December Mood Board:

Here is a link to the December Challenge. And here is my page!

I used lots of goodies from the TresorsdeLuxe store! The White lace and Gold trim, the pretty gem on top and the little white roses too! The paper is some REALLY old K and Company paper from my stash. The snowflakes, title and little bow are Anna Griffin. I added some white ink and some chunky glitter in the corners.

For the carosel top I used Anna Griffin metallic layers paper and embossing folder. I drew a template first and then cut the sections from the alternating colors. I folded them and attached each section from the back and used cardboard for dimension underneath.

Tresors Supplies used:
White Venice Lace w/tear drop edging LA-047
Gold Venice Lace trim LA-144
Gold Venice lace LA-189
Rhinestone and pearl  accent
