Lady bug Love

My little girl loves ladybugs.  I got this template on clearance at my local Michael’s, so of course I just had to play with it right away.  I love the contrast with the burlap, it just adds such an interesting texture to the layout.

I am also linking this layout up to the newest issue over at Paper Issues featuring Enamel.

Sleepy Boy layout

This guy can always make me laugh.  He is always falling asleep in weird places.  He particularly loves falling asleep in a sunny spot outside.  So of course, I had to create a layout about it.

I am also linking this layout up to the newest issue over at Paper Issues featuring Enamel.

oh happy day layout

This layout is a little bit of various things from my stash.  Besides the background paper, I only used various scraps that I keep.  It has been one of my goals this year to use up more of my scraps.  I am happy to be finally starting to make a dent in them.

Dad’s Girl

A little late, but I played along with a new Sketchy Saturday from Paper Issues and I am finally getting around to sharing my layout.

I also am linking this layout to the new issue up at Paper Issues featuring Enamel.

I went with a monochromatic feel with all of the aqua, but then added some pops of pink, because of course it is my daughter’s favorite color.  Instead of the circles that were in the sketch, I used this fun cut from the Silhouette store.

Life is better at the Beach

This is one of my happy pictures!  I took it last summer when I was visiting Santa Cruz, California.  I would be so happy just sitting on that bench and watching the ocean.

I created this layout for the design team call at Picture This! Challenges.  The challenge was to create a layout with 1 photo + corners + splatters.

I also am linking this layout to the new issue up at Paper Issues featuring Enamel.

Washi organization

Are you a washi tape addict like I am?  I currently have almost 200 rolls in my stash.  I keep my tape on a shelf behind my desk in two organizers that I made from old Project Life boxes.  I loved that I added dividers so that the rolls wouldn’t roll around, but both of my boxes were full and I didn’t have another box around to use.  So instead I convinced my husband to build me three boxes.

I had seen an idea of making drawer organizers using lathe boards from Home Depot.  Lathe boards are really cheap and they are made to be used in plaster walls.  Each board is 48 inches long and at my home depot were 35 cents a piece!  I had the backing laying around from a cheap piece of furniture.  So total price for all three of these was about $3.  Of course, my hubby HAD to have a nail gun, but oh well.

The boards do require a bunch of sanding, but for this project I just wanted them smooth enough so I won’t get any slivers.  I am so happy with how these turned out and the price was perfect.  Now I think my husband is wanting to make some for the kitchen drawers. Hmmm….I wonder what I might want him to make for me next!

I would love to see how you keep your tape organized!

This is one of my favorite layouts that I have created in a while.  My daughter “helped” me, mostly by standing over my shoulder and asking questions for the whole time.  This layout came together pretty quickly and it was just fun to make!!
