fine little day


Hey paper peeps! Have you jumped on the travelers notebook crazy train? Ohhh they are the cahutest little things when you make a mini album out of them! By the time you get just a few spreads done inside, they are these super chunky little books of happiness! I have just a general one in the works, filled with random memories that make me smile, and this is my most recent entry;

These books are also really handy when you have some pretty pieces lying around your workspace that you need to use up, or if you have a random picture that you want to use but don't want to create a large layout for it or whatevs ;) perfect for pretty paper scraps too!

So Shimmerz Paints has these fabulous new kits available now on their website, and this one had an exclusive cut file to go along with it! It was a large floral heart but I cut it apart of course (because I can't do anything normal lol).. what can I say some things are just begging to be fussy cut... 

I placed the flower on a simple watercolor background that I created with Shimmerz Creameez Piggy Pink paint! I was worried that the paper would crinkle too much, but I slapped down a clear gesso layer first and let it dry, but the paper took it like a champ! 

So definitely give these little notebooks a try, they are so fun I know you'll love them! 

Have a beautiful day!

you make me happy


Hey there! Are you having a scrappy Sunday?! Just wanted to pop in to share this simple little layout with you ;) What is your favorite size layout to make? This is an 8.5x11 and I forgot how much fun they are! Omgosh this is an old pic but it makes me so happy! That little happy face...

 This is one of the charms from the new Maggie Holmes line "Sunny Days," I tied it around the bottom of the layout with bakers twine, just a simple little detail on the bottom. ;)

I found this cut file just laying on my desk in a pile of pretty things, so I gave it a watercolor bath in Shimmerz Paints "Luck of the Irish," It's so pretty! Love this color! 

This happy sticker is an old Dear Lizzy one, I have a whole drawer of her stuff that I need to stop hoarding lol! But it is kinda fun going through your stash, it's like shopping for it all over again heh heh!

I hope you find some time today to make something pretty!  Have a lovely day!

new sketch challenge


Hey paper peeps! Are you in the Hip Kit Club group on Facebook? They launched a new sketch challenge yesterday, and this is what it looks like!

Cute right? This is my version of it;

I know it doesn't look exactly like it, but if you look closely, I just flipped the sketch and smushed it all together! It was so fun I love doing these!

Look at this gorgeous cut file in the March kits?!?! I absolutely love it and plan on using it a bunch! Look how cute my mom looks in the lens lol! Siigghhh. Why are beach pics always so beautiful..makes me want to go grrrr!

I adore fancy little details... even simple little texture paste circles that were stenciled on can add so much to a page! 

Such a great saying:

You should definitely go play along, you could win a $10.00 gift card for their store! 

Can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a beautiful day!
