Little Moments mini album/Pretty little Studio DT

Good morning everyone! Are you ready for the beginning of a new week??
I have to say that I'm not quite ready for it, we've had a long weekend and lots of house guests, but it has been fun!

Well I'm here today to share with you a mini album with you that I made for my MIL. She loves when I make her mini albums and I thought the Woodland collection would be great. I has a variety of colors that work well for boys and girls.


I started by picking the back ground paper and I used some of the package backing for bits and pieces of the mini album too. I mean, if the packaging is so cute, why not use it, right! lol. 


I added tags, tabs and word stickers through out the mini and I ended up really happy with this mini. 
I've added pictures of the rest of the album for you to look at and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Valentines day cards/Pretty little Studio DT

Hey everyone! Hows your week been going? 
Min has been crazy! Well the last few weeks have been. I've had a house full of sick little ones. But it looks like things are looking and and I'm excited about that, especially since Valentines day is coming up!


So in anticipation of Valentines day I wanted to make my kiddos cards, I have to admit that its been to long since I've done this. I use to make cards all the time, every holiday. I never bought cards, why would I?? I have a room full of scrappy goodness, so I decided that this year I would go back to making them handmade!


I still have more to make, 6 kiddos here lol. But I sat down and started playing and really enjoyed making these cards. Adding the layers and not completely Valentine papers. Yes, I know there are hearts and sweet sayings, but its not ALL pink. lol. 


I really enjoyed adding the layers, the combos of colors and the 3D pops of some of the pieces. I hope you enjoyed my cards today, like I said I have more to make, but I really enjoyed it. I think it was just what I needed. A small break from 12x12 layouts and doing something a little different. I have found that doing a switch up here and there keeps my mojo going.

Good morning scrappers!! I'm here this morning to share a little card that I made for a friend last week. She had had a bit of a though week and I thought getting a card might make her feel a little better. And I was right, She enjoyed her card.


I used the beautiful Here comes the Sun collection to make this card. I did a bit of layering and had popped up the saying and the cookie. I loved the saying, I thought it would be cute and not just a get well card. I added a little word sticker that says never give up. I also made sure that I added a bit of the gold foil PL cards too. I just wanted something a little shiny on there.
I hope you enjoyed my quick little cards today and I hope you have a great start to the new week!

Jan18 Sweet Babe/Cocoa Daisy DT

Good morning everyone! How are you doing today?? We've made it to Thursday! The week is almost over!! Come on Friday!!

Well I thought I'd pop in really quick and share with you a layout I made last month with my December 2016 Cocoa daisy DT package.
There were so many pretty papers in this kit and the cut files you got were beautiful too! I was drawn to the embroidery hoop one and the pretty little floral element.


So I cut both of those cut files out, the floral quite a few times, then I decided to fussy cut out some of the pretty flowers from the Pink Paislee paper and started layering them around the embroidery hoop. I added a frame to a portion of the picture, just to add some color and then placed it behind the embroidery hoop.


I added some gold Heidi Swapp Color shine and a strip down the left side and was done. Another quick layout for this week. I think this one took we less than 45 min and thats with the fussy cutting counted in.

I love how it turned out. My youngest daughter is the main focus of the layout, just partially curled up sleeping, lol, she use to do that a lot, not so much anymore! lol, They grow so fast!

Thanks so much for coming by to check out my layout and I hope you come back again and see what else I come up with. If you dont want to miss anything, feel free to hit that follow button and you wont miss out on anything again! And make sure to head over to the Cocoa Daisy Blog and forums to see what else is going on over there!

Jan17 Designer challenge with Cocoa Daisy

Good morning everyone!! Are you up for a little challenge?? Well if so come and play along with us over at the Cocoa Daisy forums and the Cocoa Daisy challenge group! You have a chance to win a store gift card if you win!

So this month the challenge is centered around a mood board and oh man is it pretty, right?


I love the color combo for one, and those flowers are beautiful! I also love the water color look, ok ok its just all so pretty!! lol


This was what I created with that mood board in mind. I kept it soft, I kept it soft. I know there was some navy in the mood board along with some black, but I went with the lighter colors. This picture was just something sweet I caught. My oldest loves his little brothers and sisters, but he loves to sit and talk to the baby and thats what I caught here. So my oldest and my youngest, I just thought it was so sweet!


I used a heart cut file, tone on tone, so that it wasn't to distracting, but I loved the hearts in the background. I layered a little behind the photo and did some fussy cutting with those gorgeous flowers! I added a few little angled strips of the Cocoa Daisy exclusive papers across the bottom and top to frame it in some and add more color, but not to much, for me at least.  
I added a few little embellishments here and there, some were punched out of one of the pink paislee papers and some from the exclusive. I added in a few of the floral sprigs and that was it for this one.

Morning everyone.
I'm here to share a quick  layout I made with the pretty Here comes the sun collection!


I know its the middle of the winter here in the US but it has been so pretty outside lately, we went from snow and everything freezing to beautiful 60 and 70 degree weather!! Its horrible for the sinuses but we sure are enjoying it.
I had took a picture of some of the bubbles the kiddos had blown and decided they would be great to scrap with this pretty collection.
I layered paper and vellum behind my photo and started to add my other layers. The die cut pack had this beautiful title and I thought it fit with what I was scrapping so I used it for my title. I wanted to have some balance to the page so I layered some of the same patterned papers on the bottom along with some tabs, labels and doilies. I finished off the layout with some gold Heidi Swapp color shine and that was it. Heidi Shine is a bit of a weakness for me lol.



I hope you enjoyed this layout and I hope it might bring you a little bit of sunshine one a winter day! Make sure to check out the Pretty little studio store to see this collection and the new collections that are coming to the shop!!

Good morning everyone!! I'm here this morning to share with you a layout I created with this months Cocoa Daisy kits, featuring the beautiful Pink Paislee rub-ons.
I love this photo of my daughter and her big ol' smile!I wanted it to be the focal point of the layout. So after I matted the photo with some of the very pretty papers in the kit this month and found where I wanted to place my photo and grabbed that beautiful pack of rub-ons and started to place them in a half circle coming from the photo.
I loved the way it looked but I wanted a little more color in the circle so I put the pretty water color doily one right under the side of the photo and put my title down. I added a small triangle to the bottom left of the layout and added a rub-on there, those run ons go on like butter by the way! And I added a small triangle to the top left and was done.
This layout came together super fast!! I know its a very simple layout, but the way it turned out I was so happy with! These rub-ons were a beautiful addition to this layout and were something so pretty to use as a focal point.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this simple layout and I would love to see what you do with the rub-ons too!! Make sure to come back by and check out what everyone is making with there kits and come join the facebook challenge group and play along with us over there too!!
