New Stuff...

Greetings from Louisiana!!!!! I made it into town yesterday evening and am recooping from the long drive. It rained just about the whole time so I still have remnants of a headache still lingering. Believe it or not, I brought absolutely nothing in regards to scrapping. I figured there was so much to do and so little time to do it. Aside from the fabulous Thanksgiving dinner we will be having, my mom and I will be going into Tigerland on Friday to see the LSU/Arkansas game. Then on Saturday, we are going to tour a plantation home!!!! This will be one of the first trips that will be just me and my mom.....I am sooooo excited!!!!!

Now for the new stuff....I recently ordered one of the new lines from Echo Park and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I had these new pictures I took of my hubby and they were perfect for these papers. Here's what I did.....

See what I mean....Perfect combo!!!! Next I finally pulled out my Jillibean Soup kit from The ScrapRoom and played with it. I just love this new line from JS and I think I am going to have to order I tempting you to shop yet????? LOL!!!!! Here is my layout.....

That's all from me today!!!! I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!! If you are interested, I am having a Black Friday party over at my Scentsy website. (I have a quick link at the top of my blog) Remember, Scentsy can make perfect Christmas gifts and you can shop from your seat and not on your feet!!!!! Just go to my website and click on "Black Friday Party" to begin your order. Have a fabulous day!!!!!

Working with Imaginisce

Happy Sunday Scrappers! It has been an eventful weekend but as things settle down, all I can think of is Thanksgiving with my family. Tuesday, I leave for Louisiana and I couldn't be more thrilled.

As for scrappy projects, I have a few Imaginisce layouts I worked on for the DT call. I love Imaginisce!!!! Their papers and products are so fantastic. If you haven't noticed, I have really been loving Hemp Twine. I just love the texture it adds to a page. Another thing, I love to use is kraft paper. I hope you enjoy my layouts and are inspired to go out and scrap with those Imaginisce papers. Enjoy your lovely Sunday!!!!

Hat Day

Good Morning Scrappers....Along with my fresh new look, I have some fresh new layouts to share!!!! My first layout is of my sweet Abigail. She participated in college and career week with her school. This day, Abigail had to wear a hat in support of her favorite college and of course she chose LSU!!!!! Geaux Tigers Baby!!!!! Ooops, got side tracked there for a minute!!!! So anyway, once again I pulled out my Bella Blvd Papers, "Making the Team". I tell you, Stephanie really hit a home run with this line....get it...home run!!!!! Just a quick funny, I am working off of fumes right now! Back to my layout...I got me a new canon printer and decided to play around with some different sizes of the pictures. I am not real happy with the quality of the print and I am not sure if it is the paper or the printer. I bought Kodak paper, but to be honest, I hate glossy photos and Wal-Mart was not supplying me many choices. But that is neither here nor there. Without further adieu, here is Abigail on "Hat Day".

 As I mentioned earlier, I have more to share so stay tuned and have a Terrific Thursday!!!!!!

EP Fresh Face Designer???

Hi scrappers!!!! It has been a few days since my last post. Today, I thought I would give it another go for the Echo Park Fresh Face Designer. I truly love their papers and have so enjoyed working with just about every line they have put out!!!!! Here are a few....

This first design is a mixture of "A Walk in the Park" and "Sweet Summertime". The design of my page was inspired by a sketch over at "Once Upon a Sketch". I used my Cricut (Plantin SchoolBook) to cut my circle. The picture was literally taken at one of the parks where I live. We were celebrating my oldest son's graduation. What I love about Echo Park is there sticker sheets. I added the tree and then began to fill my page with fun items you might see at a park. When designing with the stickers, I often choose to add dimension by using pop dots. This is one of my favorite pages due to it's fun and playful vibe.

On this layout I used the Echo Park line, "Life is Good". Again, I pop dotted the stickers but kept the primary focus on the pictures. I love the block letters when playing with my title or to date my page. The papers on here just convey such joy and happiness which again is why I am so drawn to Echo Park.

I was so excited to get my hands on this Echo Park line, "Happy Days". What was even better is that Echo Park created chipboard stickers, which happens to be one of my favorite elements on my pages. I love layering the patterned papers and adding little pieces of interest around my page. Another favorite technique I like to use is paint splatters and faux stitching. I think the result was exactly what I wanted for the picture I used and this line couldn't have been more perfect!!!!

Lastly, I created this layout using the Echo Park line, "Apothecary Emporium". I had so much fun creating this page and again the patterns were so fun to work with. I pulled out my Tim Holtz flower die and the rest of my embellishments were stickers that I pop dotted all over the page. Another favorite item that I use quite often is Baker's twine. I can't help myself with that stuff. And look at those darn cute!!!!!

I hope you have enjoyed my layouts and as always if you have any questions as to what I used or how I created my pages, please feel to let me know. Enjoy your day and as always, scrap those memories!!!!!

So, if you are a scrapper on the go and want to make quick pages, we have what the Dr. ordered. This month I got to work with the new fall line by We R Memory Keepers.
