Come on over to the SMS blog to see my latest layout! I scraplift Missy Whidden this past week and I absolutely love how my layout turned out!!!
Hello and welcome back to my blog! I am up over on the Get it Scrapped blog today with some of the other fabulous Creative Team Members. Our assignement was to pick a decade and be inspired to scrap a page. I picked the 1980’s because, well, that was the decade I was born in.
I had also actually been thinking about a specific memory from that time, when I was about 2 or 3. Some of you might remember the Cabbage Patch Kid Dolls and how huge they were in the early to mid 80’s. My parents gave my sister and me a doll each and I vividly remember when my sister opened hers and what my dad said. Isn’t that crazy how there are little moments in life that stand out like that? I mean, I was 2 years old!!
Ok, so let’s move onto my layout:
When I first got this assignment I had immediately thought of the Wonder Collection, that’s a year or two years old. I had bought some of the papers and the alpha, but hadn’t used them yet. I was so excited to pull them out for this layout.
I found the photo in the top left in a pile of old photos my mom had sent me a few years ago. It was a Christmas picture, but not from the specific year we got the dolls. I was really excited to use it on this layout though because it does portray that it’s Christmas.
I then went to google, my trusty companion a lot of the time, and looked for images of Cabbage Patch Kids. I found the logo and this blonde haired doll and they were perfect!
I first started thinking I would title the layout something like ‘the 80’s’ or ‘a 1980’s Christmas’, but the more and more I thought about it I just really didn’t like them. I took to the internet to ask my scrappy friends and between two friends I came out with this title and I just love it!! ‘Proud Member of the Cabbage Patch Fad’, it’s so perfect!

Hello everyone and welcome to our monthly blog hop!! I hope you’re ready and excited to jump along to each blog with us today! We have teamed up with Accent Scrapbooking, a cute etsy shop, for a fun product swap! I had sooooo much fun using the flair she sent me from her shop!! For this hop, you should have arrived here from Beth’s blog. Don’t you just love how her layout turned out?!!
Your entire line up for today’s hop is:
We decided to use this sketch by Laura Whitaker to make our layouts:
Don’t you just love it?!!
This is the layout I made with the sketch inspiration. I am SO in LOVE with how this layout turned out! I did a little flip of the sketch and made it a bit more me.
This cute little heart flair with the sequins inside of the heart is my absolute favorite!! Isn’t it just so cute?!!! I love it! I also used some of the sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps shop called Evergreen Bough.
I also did some mixed media on the background. I used a Tim Holtz stencil with some Sea U in the Mornin’ Dazzlerz
I absolutely LOVE this photo and wanted the focus to be on it. I really love the big 8 inch doily you can also get in the SMS shop. I used another cute flair from Accent Scrapbooking, a cork heart from SMS, a mini glassine bag, a 4 inch silver doily, green May arts burlap ribbon and a large manila tag.
This is the third cluster and I was so excited to be able to use another one of these fun flair badges!

Hello Hello!! I am up on the Crafty Maven Getaway YouTube Channel today. Here’s a couple photos, you can find my process video below:
For these Pocket Scrapbook pages I have a bunch of random photos I want to get in my album. They’re all from different days, but I thought they were still cute and good stories to tell.
I loved this 3×4 card from the Cinnamon Edition Project Life kit. I just cut it down and stuck some enamel dots on it and was done with this cute and simple card.
I titled these pages Normal Life because that’s exactly what all the photos were portraying. I really love this card and thought it was perfect to use!
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you’re having a great week so far!
Hello and Happy Happy Monday!! Monday is actually one of my favorite days of the week, is that crazy/weird?!! For me Monday means back to a ‘normal’ schedule. The kids all go off to school, I have time to think without them asking every 5 seconds if they can play this or that electronic device and my husband goes back to work and I am FREE to do what I want to do. Not that I don’t get to do that over the weekend! lol I actually do have a lot of free time over the weekend, but I always feel so guilty about using it.
Anyway!! Wow, that was a very long winded intro! Ok, let’s jump into today’s video and post!
I posted over at the SpiegelMom Scraps blog yesterday. You can find that post here. I wasn’t able to post the video that went along with this layout though so that is finally up on YouTube today! Yay! You can watch that below or on my YouTube channel.

Hello everyone!! I know this is the post you’ve all been waiting for! 😉 I posted up my TWO videos of my album share for my December Daily. Yeah, I had to split it into two albums this year, which I was hoping I wouldn’t have to, but I did. I just take too many photos and I like including a lot of them in my December Daily layouts, so it was inevitable.
Here are the two videos of my albums:
This is part 1 above. I hope you enjoy watching the finished project!!
And here’s part 2.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great weekend!
Happy Saturday scrappy friends!! I hope you’re having a great January so far! I have my very last few pages in my December Daily to share with you today!
I just love this last couple of pages!! I had that cute little manila folder in with my December Daily kit and I’m so glad I remembered I had it!! I had a few pictures that I didn’t have enough pockets for so I stuck them inside this little folder.
I decorated the front very cute and simple and I LOVE it!!
This is how the inside turned out. I really love it! Watch the process video below to see the rest of the folder with the photos.
Thanks for stopping by!! I’ll be back soon with an album flip through.
Yayyyy!! I’ve made it to Christmas Day in my December Daily! I am excited to share this last day in my album. Let’s get right to it!
I took a lot of pictures this day, of course so I decided it was ok to do more than just 2 pocket pages. I really LOVE how they all turned out!! Here’s the first 2 pocket pages.
Since I did so many pages for Christmas day I will have 2 posts and videos so they don’t run so long!!
I hope you have been enjoying this Christmas album series I have been doing! It was a lot of fun to make and I’m so glad I finished it before the end of the year! You can watch the process video below:
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a great weekend!
