My Pie for CSI

Pastel cat scrapbook page layout in pinks, blues, and greens. with thickers, sequins, die cuts

Hi all, and Happy Easter {and April Fool's Day}! I can't believe I haven't posted in almost a month! Sometimes you just lose your mojo. I've been transferring my the scrap area from our basement to our extra bedroom, so it's hard to find the mojo to create when your space is in limbo. Anyway, the transfer is nearly complete, just in time for the challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Join us for a chance at some AMAZING prizes! Here's a look at this month's case file.


As you can see the theme is llamas. I was so excited to see this since we recently house sat a llama and alpaca farm! And of course, I took lots of pictures of Zae as he frolicked with the animals. I happily scrolled through my photo library...and I could not find them. I put it aside and came back to it again, sure I must have overlooked something. Nothing!!! I was so frustrated, and as the reveal was coming, I instead went went with a cat theme.

Nuts About You



Hi all! Oh my gosh it's already March...third! I'm slacking as we head toward spring. Usually February drags by for me. Here in Minnesota, February feels like winter has been here forever {it has} and will never end {I'm not entirely sure yet that it will}

I wanted to share my layout for the CSI design team for this month before it's April {or May}. This month there's a fun outdoorsy inspiration for you to play along with for a chance to win some fabulous prizes!




Have a great weekend :)

Snow Bear


Blue and white with beige Winter "Snow Bear" Scrapbook Layout with texture paste snowflakes, plaid, snowflakes, chipboard, flair with flowers by 49&Market

If you've seen my last few posts, you've seen some of the Winter Adventures kit from International Scrapbook Garden. I didn't have much for winter pictures printed at the time and I really wanted to dive in, so I hadn't gotten to really play with the winter elements yet. Then I found this picture of Zae in his bear suit from his first winter (two years ago!) and it was time to play with the wintery goodness in this kit.

Maja Gift Tags for ISBG


Maja denim and friends paper collection gift tags in blue and brown using cricut explore

Hi all! I wanted share these cute little gift tags I made up with some of the scraps of Maja's Denim and Friends paper collection from my  International Scrapbook Garden kit

I'm not the best about using my scraps. I keep them {because I have hoarding tendencies when it comes to anything scrapbook related}, I just don't use them. But enter the Cricut and every single scrap I own now has endless possibilities {score hoarding!}.

I've already done several projects with the Winter Adventures kit {you can see them herehere, and here!}, so I've already proclaimed my love for these papers, several times. {and probably again after that}

You can find the papers here, or find main kit here.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
