PLS Happy Fall Yall Hanging sign

Good morning happy scrappers! Sarah here today sharing a fall door hanging I made using the fantastic Oakley Avenue collection created by Ashley Horton.

This is fairly simple but I love the way it turned out and it looks great hanging on my front door! I ran 4 of the papers threw my silhouette and cut out some great leaves  and my words and I added them in clusters at the top and bottom of my chalk board sign. 

I ended up painting my words gold before applying them to my sign. I loved all the leaves and I cut out way more then what ended up on here! lol But I figured I would use them later :)

XOXO / 12X12 Stash scrapping

Hello everyone!! Happy Saturday! I'm a bit late in the day posting this, but I thought I'd share it anyhow.
This is my 2 youngest daughters. Older loves to spend time with her little sister, any time she gets! Baby was getting tummy time and older was sitting there talking to her and playing with her. I thought they looked cute so I snapped a few pics and this was my favorite.

I used some of what was left from the last kit I got from Hip Kits when I was on the design team to make this layout. I love all the Maggie Holmes, Gather collection. Everything I used was on the soft side. I wanted it that way because of the photo I used.

I added a few close up pictures for you to take a look at

Thanks so much for you coming by and checking out what I made, if you dont want to miss any of my posts, feel free to follow me.

PLS Thursday tips/ 12x12 layout Summer Fun

Good morning everyone! I'm here this morning to share my 1st layout using one of Pretty Little Studios new collection created by Ashley Horton, Oakley Avenue!! I love this collection and am so happy to get to play with it! The colors are so bright and vibrant, great for summer, fall and all sorts of other things!

This layout is about my 2 boys this past summer. We had took all the kids to a park to play and run out some energy. They had gotten hot so the decided to chill out in the slides cause they were under the trees, a little bit of shade, cooling off a little. 

So the collection it self is Amazing as I already said lol, but the packaging is awesome too. All the collection you can use the packaging, but I loved the grid/notebook paper looking packaging and used it as layers here in the layout. I mean I had plenty to play with but I liked how it looked and I also used the brown paper bag that some of the products were in when I got my DT package. 

Here are a few up close pictures of how I used some of the packaging, adding them as other layers in my layout.

Sleepy Little Love / stash scrappin

Hello everyone!! How are you doing?? Pretty good here, everyone is getting over being sick, and with so many of us in a house the colds tend to stick around for a bit longer then normal. lol I guess its just something that happens when you have a big family

This is actually a picture from a few weeks ago. My little girl was not feeling to good and just wanted to climb up in my lap, cuddle and go to sleep, so I let her. This doesn't last long, I get I have 5 kids, but shes the 2nd to youngest and the older ones don't cuddle as much, as to be expected lol, but I miss it and love that the little ones still like to.But I also like to be there when there not feeling good to comfort them. But I snapped a little selfie of us and just set in to relax and chill out with her.

A few little close ups of some of the layering and playing that I did, hope you like them

This is a great story

Hey everyone, popping in today to share another quick layout with y'all. This is my new beautiful little daughter. Excuse the bragging!! But she is amazing! And how she came into this world was crazy! That's what this layout is actually about.

You'll see here that all the layers and mats behind her picture are actually made on a hinge so that I can hide all the writing I wanted to do. I'm never big on writing on my layouts cause I'm always worried I'll mess the layout up. I'm working on it though! But this was very personal, but a story that I wanted her to know when she got older. I wrote about everything that happend that morning leading up to having her.

I had fun finding a way to to keep the layout simple, light, airy and still getting all the journaling in.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my layout, If you don't want to miss any of my post feel free to click the follow button and you wont miss anything anymore!

This just Happened / 12x12 stash scrap

When I cleaned my scrap room a while back, I found a bunch of partial kits or left overs, bits and pieces from when I was on the Hip Kit club design team. So I thought I might as well bust into them and start to play with them some more. They have a lot of life left to them!! lol

I had seen some papers that had a water colored look to them, but I didn't have one in the colors I wanted, so I decided to make one and I LOVE the way it turned out. I also thought Id use one of the Hip Kit files and stitch on my page, but I decided to use this metallic gold embroidery floss, yeah not something I'll do again!! I love the way it turned out and all but man was it a pain. I've sewn with regular embroidery floss and it was way easy, but for some reason this metallic stuff got stuck SOOOO much and separated constantly! 
Anyways, lol, it turned out good and thats all that matters to me :)
This layout is about my daughter and hubby. They were just sitting on the couch watching TV, my daughter was eating golf fish, she turned and asked daddy if he wanted one, of course he said yes, but when she went to feed it to him she did like we use to when we fed her, lol, we'd open our mouths trying to get her to do the same and she thought she had to show him how to too lol. To funny.

Here are a few up close pics for ya to check out, hope you enjoy it and come back to see what else I make, thanks :)
