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!

Blue boy scrapbook layout featuring Maja Denim and Friends papers, cricut cutting, cloud, airplane, wood, bunting banner, Tim Holtz Quote chips with plaid and stripes

Hi all! I'm back with another layout using the Winter Adventures kit from International Scrapbook Garden. I've already professed my undying love for the Maja Denim and Friends papers featured in this kit in my last two projects (Pure Delight & Always Wonder), so for this layout I wanted to do something a little simpler and let the papers shine. 

{I even managed to get the bit of the polka dot "Paisley" navy blue paper I proclaimed to be my favorite paper of all time!}

I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the airplane, cloud, and banner.

I was trying to figure out what I was going to use as my "smoke" from the plane and tried some twine but when I spied the wood flourishes from the kit. {and I got out of gluing string into a curlicue!}

The chip phrases are from Tim Holtz (included in the embellishment bonus kit).

The "You're Awesome" phrase is from the border on one of the B-sides (the back of the information strip at the bottom). I love that you get this fun little "freebie" to add another layer of embellishing.

The story behind that little sun peeking out from behind the cloud is that I had that little piece leftover from cutting out the banner and it wedged itself into that spot {not at all surprising with the mess on the kitchen counter where I've been scrapping lately}. I figured it wanted to live there and who am I to say no to my little paper friends? {commit me now}

Hi all, today I'm in today to share my design team layout for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Nothing like scrapping some summery-ness in the midst of a Minnesota winter! This was taken by my dad on a trip to see my aunt, who lived in Jamaica for many years. This was on a stop for pineapple juice somewhere between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.

Here's this month's first case file:
