Life is Perfect

There are two things I really love about creating this layout…it took me way less than an hour and I only used scraps on this page.  I really need to use up more of my scraps, so I grabbed a drawer and pulled out some scraps and just started putting them on the page and then added some faux stitching around each block.

Life is Perfect

Supplies: Paper and stickers from Echo Park…seriously, that’s it!

Playing Clorks

Cork embellishments are all the rage right now and they were the perfect accents to this page about my daughter and her great-grandfather playing with a basket full of corks last Thanksgiving.  It was so great listening to all of the giggles while the game was going on.

First Grade

I can’t believe that this was already a year ago already!! I only had two picture sizes left to choose from to scrapbook, either an 8x10 or this smaller 3.5x5.   I also saw this fun background pattern in my Silhouette library and knew that it would make a fun touch on this page.

Scrapbooker’s Blog Tour

My friend Devra invited me last week to join in on the Scrapbook Blog Tour.  This was the first time I had heard of this blog tour and I was excited to get a glimpse into her creative process since I just love her style! Last Monday she shared a great post and at the end nominated me to join in, so I am here to today to answer the same fun questions. 

1.What am I working on right now?

Right now I am working on a mix of home d├ęcor projects and design team projects.  I am loving the look of printed burlap, so I just had to give it a try but I have quickly become addicted to it!

2. How long does it take me to create a project?

For a typical layout it can take me anywhere from under an hour to several hours depending on how quickly they come together and if I have to wait for things to be cut out on my silhouette or to dry from spray ink.  I sometimes will have a project on my desk for up to a week while waiting for inspiration and time to get it finished.

@ This Very Moment

3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?

My Silhouette Cameo, sequins, wood veneer, patterned paper with fun patterns, but nothing whimsy, spray ink, anything gold, laminated burlap sheets, washi tape.  Really everything in my space, since I purge frequently and have really discovered my own style I don’t keep things that I don’t like to use.

4. How does my creating process work?

I start by grabbing my photos (which are sorted in page protectors in a standard binder, the pictures for each layout are in their own page protector).  I then pick out my paper products (patterned paper and cardstock).  Once the paper and cardstock and pictures are all done I start pulling out embellishments, add my journaling and title.

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?

I love looking at color palettes and layouts on pinterest. I love building up my Silhouette library, so I am also inspired by new designs that I find. Scrapbook challenges are a great way to find my mojo and get started scrapping again. Lately, I am really inspired by creating things for my new home, so I have spent way too much time reading my HGTV magazines.

Happy Halloween

6. What is my signature style?

This for me is a question that seems impossible to answer.  I really just do what I like.  I like clean lines for my photos and patterned paper but I like to add fun with my embellishments.  Ink splatters on my layout seem to be something that I have been adding a lot of lately.

Smile Love

Now it is time for me to nominate a couple of scrapbookers.  I decided on these two ladies because I love their style and I am looking forward to a peak into their creative process next!
