Zoe’s Here!!

I am so excited to see all the new paper packs and stamp sets and accessories in the new Annual Expressions book!  All of these goodies will be available September 1st, but we get a sneak peak in August with the Zoe Paper pack. This is easily my favorite from the new papers (…yeah, I know I say that about each of the new paper packs as soon as I start playing with them, but Zoe really is terrific!). The luscious Glacier, Sorbet and Sweet Leaf colors of Zoe are so versatile and cheery:

The new Zoe Paper pack....  check out those gorgeous colors!

Blossoms Galore!

Summer’s almost here! Cherry blossoms cover the ground like confetti and my dogwood’s in full bloom in the front yard while the azaleas brighten the backyard with their pink, purple and white blossoms. I’ve captured many of these springtime blossoms in the outdoors pictures I’ve snapped of the kids lately, now that the days are longer and the sun is shining.

I love these gorgeous Blossom papers for tucking all those Springtime happy snaps into my album:

The diagonal strip rainbow zips trip used here is one of the most fantastic parts of the Blossom papers! The stitching on this page adds a nice finish to it as well.

Yippee!! Let’s Celebrate!

It’s another snow day!   Hmm…. may not be cause for such celebration anymore. I am enjoying the time snowed in at home crafting though.  And, here are the results of today’s efforts:  a four layout Workshop using the Confetti papers – great for birthdays!

The cheerful and colorful papers seem to lend themselves more to girl birthdays than boy birthdays, but with some judicious selections of paper, these layouts are fairly appropriate for either boys or girls:

 

Awesome layout using the December Stamp of the Month, "Cutie Pie"as well as  some arrow washi tape

I want to know  how many more days until spring!  Hopefully both are just a hop, skip and a jump away.  What better paper to use in our family albums chronicling birthdays than the festive Hopscotch paper pack. The Hopscotch papers are the focus of this month’s scrapbooking pages:

Happy Snowy New Year!

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution?  Everytime I make one, it falls by the wayside before Valetine’s Day…. So, this year I’m setting a fun one for myself: make more time for activities I enjoy…..  This includes spending time with my family, cooking and reading books….  and, oh yeah, scrapbooking 🙂   What could be better?

 

Most of the country has been hit by a wave of frigid snowy weather this first week of the new year. Puts me in the mind of hot cocoa and nordic sweaters….  perfect for the Snowhaven paperback:

Love the polka dots and the  flexible resin Snowhaven Assortment accessories!

This past week Fall arrived!  We had our first really chilly, windy, rainy, blustery days.

“Wanderful” summertime……

I had a “Wanderful” time on vacation last summer. My husband and I surprised my dad and joined him on a river cruise down the Danube at the last minute!  It was an amazing and wonderful trip: precious time with my dad, amazing sights along the Danube in Austria and a thoroughly relaxing break from hectic family and school life. I am so grateful we were able to make this trip work out.

I tried to capture the flavor of the international travel, the cities, the airplane flights, the river boats, the metros, the exploring and adventure in the many photographs that I took during the trip. Now I can’t wait to create album pages to remember it all. The new “Wanderful” paper is perfect for this sort of vacation!  I love the trendy colors used in these papers, as well as the fun embellishments that go with them:

 

Wanderful2

I’ve used an art booking overlay here that is perfect for the airplanes and arrows in this paper pack…

Wanderful4

Notice the banner on the right hand page, which is crystal blue card stock embossed with our new arrows embossing folder and sanded.

Wanderful3

Love the arrows washi tape here!

2014-10-15 16.14.14

The chevron border punch adds a bit of spunk to this page. Love the use of Base and Bling arrow charm on the bakers twine as well.

 

 

I’ve added 3 extra sheets of card stock plus a piece of patterned paper to make these four energetic layouts. Also included are  lots of coordinating embellishments:  Awesome stick ease complements, images from the Wanderful WOTG stamp set, a cricut overlay from the “Artbooking” cartridge, washi tape, the Wanderful assortment of metal shapes and trendy epoxy badge buttons.
