The NEW Annual Inspirations Book is LIVE!

Welcome back, and Happy August! Eeek, where is this summer flying off to? That being said, nothing makes me happier this time of year than three things:

1) My children depart for camp for a whole week (no sisterly bickering for a week....hahaha!)
2) The new Annual Inspirations Idea Book is launched.
3) I can indulge in the book and in my craft room with blissful peace! we go! Check out the cover:

You can see the full book online by visiting HERE. Even better, grab yourself a paper copy by contacting me, and relax with a cup of tea on your porch and savor each deliciously devine page.

With every month comes a new Stamp of the Month as well! For August, the Purr-fect Halloween one is soooo awesome!

You can get your set for only $5 by clicking HERE.

Here's to the last month of summer being wonderful for you, and filled with friends, laughter, sunshine, and some time to unwind for yourself.

Happy scrappin'!

Just a Hello

Can you believe we're almost the end of April - where is this year going?!

Took a little time out to create a cheerful Hello card that I absolutely love! Found the sketch on Pinterest, and used up some of my scraps. If you're like me, you have enough scraps to start a massive bonfire!

This card uses minimal product, and took minutes to whip together!

*all products are CTMH unless otherwise noted*

Cardstock - Colonial White
B&T paper - Claire (retired), chevron paper (unknown)
Embellishments - white twine (unknown), stickers (unknown), assorted sequins

Celebrate Love

It's Spring and of course it's time to celebrate when the snow melts! Having just come back recently from a scrapbooking retreat at a gorgeous secluded cottage (where the most important things were wine, carbs and slippers), I was able to bust out a few layouts with some gorgeous papers.

This layout is from the Charlotte collection, and even better, already had the layout instructions as part of the Workshops Your Way. Love simplicity and I love everything about this paper collections!

Spring Communion

With the freshness and rebirth of Spring, comes the traditional time of year for celebrations, especially First Communions. My youngest beauty had her first communion last May, and I'm finally getting around to documenting her special day.

Being an avid lover of photographer, I looooove this photo I captured of her laughing with her sister as the girls played on the front lawn before we left for the church, and just knew it had to be the main highlight on a layout.

I love the pattern blocking in this layout, and the colors just scream SPRING!! This layout is surprisingly easy to pull together, and has no stamping in it. Whatcha think?

*all products are CTMH unless otherwise noted*

Cardstock - Sorbet, Kraft, White Daisy, Lagoon
B&T paper - Blossom
Embellishments - sequins, twine, puffy hearts, lace flower, 
Other - wood elements (Studio Calico), chipboard buttons (unknown), twine sentiment (unknown)

May your Easter weekend be full of family, love and abundant blessings!

Happy scrappin'!
