MCS - Daddy Daughter Date

Happy Tuesday! I'm back with another one of my layouts that I created with the MCS March Creative kit. This is one that is special to me because it documents the wonderful relationship my husband and daughter have. She is his little princess and she adores him!

This kit is a birthday one but there are so many elements to it that can showcase other celebratory moments.

MCS - Hey Hey It's Your Birthday! Step-by-step tutorial

It's my 1st tutorial with My Creative Scrapbook and I couldn't be more excited to share with you a step-by-step tutorial on how I created my layout "Hey Hey It's Your Birthday!" These Pink Paislee Birthday Bash papers were super fun to use. I love the toned down soft pastel colors with touches of navy blue and black that are suitable for male or female layouts. Here are all of the kits available this Month at My Creative Scrapbook....

Alright, so here we go! But first, a look at my completed layout...

Step 1: Trim white birthday (paper 01) to 3 ¾” x 12” and trim navy blue bursts (paper 08) to 8 ¼” x 12” and adhere to white cardstock.

Step 2: Trim 4 strips of the black confetti (paper 09) to ¾” x 12” and adhere to the outside edges to create a frame around the entire layout. Using a ruler and X-acto knife, lightly trim from corner to corner (of each corner) on the top layer to create a mitered corner.

Step 3: Trim the birthday candle and blue strip from the strips paper (paper 02). Punch a scalloped border and adhere to layout.

Step 4: Add orange (paper 05) matting behind title piece and photo while adding #blessed polaroid between photo and matt. Cut apart word strips from strips paper (paper 02) and add to the top of the title piece.

Step 5: Add some faux or real stitching with an orange marker (or thread) around the edges of title die cut. Add pop dots to a fussy cut party hat and add to the bottom corner of title. Add silver Heidi Swapp stickers,  journaling strips,....

and word strips to your photo. Done!

Hope everyone enjoyed my little tutorial and is excited about the layouts you can create with this month's Creative Kit at My Creative Scrapbook!

A New Adventure!! My Creative Scrapbook!!

Happy Sunday to all! I have some wonderful news that I finally get to share....I have been invited to be on the Design Team for My Creative Scrapbook kit club!!!

I have long admired this kit club and I cannot express how thrilled I am to get to create layouts with their gorgeous kits each month.

This layout was created specifically for the call....Sparkle & Shine. The Simple Stories Posh collection was perfect to document these pictures of my daughter I'd been long holding onto. She was all dolled up and ready to go on her daddy/daughter date. I have pictures of the two of them heading out together but that layout will have to wait a few more weeks because they are scrapped using the March kit. ;)

Alright....that's all I have for today. I'm going to go do my happy dance again for the 10th time! 🙌🙌🙌

Happy New Year 2017!

It's crazy to me when I realize it's the year 2017! Where has the time gone? I have let 2 years go by with not a single blog post but it's not all by accident. I have given myself some time to get my life back on track after a huge change in my life....a little breathing room if you will. My husband was promoted at work and that meant a change in location and more work hours on his part. It's been a bumpy road the past 3 years and it still hasn't smoothed out completely but we're working on it.

So that change in location was from Charlotte, NC to Raleigh, NC. I am loving it here! It's a beautiful city and I still have much more to explore.

This layout is from the first part of said transition - the leaving Charlotte and the only home 2 of the 3 kids had ever known. So you can imagine how difficult it was for them and actually all of us to say goodbye to it. So we gave it hugs and said our last farewells.

I used the January Creative Scrappers sketch but flipped it on it's side to accommodate my pictures. Fun sketch to use!
