I am...

Hi there, Lisa S here today!  I recently did a little shopping in the My Scraps and More Store and it was everything I could do to NOT buy all of the new Simple Stories I Am line.  I actually loved it at CHA and all the little bits and bobs work so well together it's ridiculous.  Having three teenage daughters, this line works so well for their selfies (and, lets face it, mine as well!).  So I got to quick use of it for a Snapchat photo from my oldest daughter.

This layout came together in record time.  I just love how it turned out!  And fair warning, I might have to go buy more of this line.  So you might want to run to the store and buy what you want because I will steal it right out of your cart, LOL.  Thanks for popping by today!

Enjoy Every Moment

Hey Scrappy Friends!
Lisa here to share a few layouts I created using Crate Paper Notes & Things. I love the soft colors in this line! Here's my first layout:

For my second layout, I used the brighter papers in this line:
 
 
I added some Gesso, mist and watercolor to tone the paper down around my photo:
 
 
 
I added some rub-ons:

This collection is so unique! I love it!

Mickey Magic.

Hello and good morning...

Well I am DANG super excited for the Simple Stories Say Cheese II collection that has come out.. I have A TON of Disney photos to use for it. Growing up in So Cal, I usually got to go to Disneyland once a year and more often once I got older. When we moved out of state, we actually would usually try and go when we visited Cali. Once we moved back, we actually got annual passes for a year and had a blast going all the time, the kids loved it!!! so yah... I've got some Disney photos to scrap!!! lol!!

This photo is from about 5 years ago when we had some 3 day passes. We defiantly had to take a moment and visit Mickey and get a photo with him:


I used the fun gold "mickey" embellie from the ephemera pack for part of my title work:


And I fussy cut a few of the squares from the elements paper, which are a perfect way to add accents through out the page:


Make sure to check out the Cabin Fever crop going on in the forums, there are a TON of wonderful challenges going on to play along with.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

Facetime Fun with Simple Stories

I recently got my hands on the new Simple Stories Life Documented line, and am loving the stunning colors and fun shapes and embellishments. I jumped right in to using it on a layout for a scraplift challenge on the forum.
I started my base by using a super fun cut file on the daily lens cardstock paper. I loved how playful it looked to go with my silly photo. I wanted to use these colorful circle numbers from the bits and pieces, and chose to tuck them within some punched white cardstock.

I added more color and playfulness by placing some punched confetti, sequins and colored brands along a line beneath my photo. How awesome are those brad colors!!
I completed my layout with a few more bits and fussy cut chevrons from the its your life cardstock paper. I just love the bright and cheery feel of this line!! You can view the remainder of this line in the store HERE. I hope yall have a lovely and relaxing Sunday and come back to play along with us tomorrow for the start of our week long crop in the forum, we love playing with new scrappy friends!!

Silly

It's Saturday and finally the weekend!  Jennifer here to share a layout I created using the new
Echo Park Paper Jack and Jill collection.  I just ordered this from the My Scraps and More shop and couldn't wait to use it! I always appreciate a great boy themed collection and Jack and Jill doesn't disappoint! 
 
 
I used the airplane printed paper and a cut file from The Cut Shoppe for my background.
 
Here you can see the many different prints as well as the coordinating Element Stickers that come in the collection.

 
Loving the cute tags on the Element Sticker Sheet! Here, I used one and added some bakers twine from my stash. I also adding in some flair and wooden veneer stars to accent. 

 
Don't you love the colors of this line?? One of my favorite prints is the orange/blue/white plaid!  For my title, I used some American Craft Thickers from my stash.


 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out this collection plus much more in the shop! 
Have a great day!

Vegas Dream

Happy Friday!  Missy here.  Today I'm sharing a layout I created using Sketch #100 from the My Scraps Sketch Blog.  The super talented Laura Whitaker designed the sketch, and I really love it!  I pulled out my Amy Tan Stitched goodies from American Crafts and went to work.  There is still a lot of this collection left in the store HERE, so check it out!

I changed my photos to black and white because they had a lot of hard to scrap colors in them.  I knew I wanted to use the black & white striped paper, so I paired it with white cardstock and added a bit of white gesso and watercolor.  The rest is layers and embellishments scattered around.  A pretty easy page to throw together!


I love adding my own stitching to things for that little extra touch.  I added pop dots to this little red and white heart strip and the big Daydream circle.  This made the flair button easy to tuck underneath it.


I really love the clear acetate stickers in this collection...so perfect for mixing up your title!  I've been hoarding those foam work Thickers....I just never want to run out of them :)


Here's one more close up of the top...just a cute clear sticker that I added to white cardstock first, some washi tape and some tangled thread.


Be sure to check out the Sketch Blog HERE....and get ready for another new one next week!  Thanks for visiting us, and have a great weekend!

Missy :)
