Easter Mini Album

Happy Friday!  Today I am up on the Paper Wings Productions blog for Feature Friday sharing what I am currently working on using their April 2014 Nesting Components Kit!

Clique Kits-Simple Stories Blog Share

Hello and welcome to the Clique Kits Blog Share featuring Simple Stories!  If you have arrived from Jody's blog then you are in the right place!  To start from the beginning please Click Here.  We are all huge fans of Simple Stories and my love for them started about 4 years ago when I became a Memory Works consultant.  I was very sad to see Memory Works go but I am so blessed to have met some amazing women while I was a Memory Works consultant.  Without Memory Works I would have never been introduced to Gia, Jody, and Lacey!  We have started this new journey together and we are all so excited to have you join us!  Today I am sharing projects using the Simple Stories Simple Set, Hey Mom!  This collection has some great mom and Mother' Day images but I wanted to show you that you can take a line like this and use it to document a variety of other things!  I love the pretty colors in this collection and the pattern papers are super cute and fun!  The floral prints are beautiful and there are some great pieces to use a neutral.  My first project is a couple pages in my snap album!  I love the Simple Stories lines to create quick and simple layouts without a whole lot of work!  The cut apart sheets make it easy to complete pocket pages and the stickers that come in the simple sets are the perfect Embellishments to give your pages a little something extra!  Here is a look at my completed pages using Hey Mom!

Next up I have two layouts to share with you.  The first one is documenting a photo of my daughter Alyssa and I.  I absolutely love this photo of Alyssa and I taken by an old friend of mine Anna Wight!!  My daughter is hilarious and I do not know what I would do without her!  She is definitely a mini me for sure and I look forward to watch her grow up (just not to fast)!


And the second layout I created in about 25 minutes!  I just pulled out a white piece of 12x12 cardstock as my base and pulled out the pieces of the Hey Mom collection that were all cut up and started piling them on!  The photo is of one of my best friends and I at my sons 8th grade graduation party.  Whenever the two of us are together we have to take at least one photo together!  I love how it turned out and it came together so quick!


Thanks so much for stopping today!  I hope you enjoyed my layouts and were inspired today!  If you would like to pick up the Simple Stories Hey Mom collection you can head on over to the Clique Kits Shop where you will find this and other fabulous Simple Stories products!  Your next stop is Lacey and she has some amazing projects to share!  Have a great day and do not forget to stop back at the Clique Kits blog and let us know you completed the hop for your chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the Clique Kits Store.

For this months blog hop project I wanted to create a mini album and using turquoise or shades of, was very easy for me since it is one of my favorites!  Just about everything in my album can be found in the Paper Wings Productions shop.  I used up papers from a few of the Nesting Components Kits along with embellishments.  I either used acrylic paints, mists or inks to add hints of turquoise to all my pages and tags.  I figured since our April Challenge theme is "Get Inky" I might as well incorporate that into my blog hop project.  All the supplies and stamps I used will be linked below and if you have any questions about a certain stamp (because I used a ton) please leave me comment below.  Here is a look at my mini album capturing sweet moments so far in 2014!

I received the Hey Cupcake stamp set a few weeks ago from Paper Wings Productions and I have been itching to use it!  Here is a look at the card I created for this challenge! 


 I used my Lindy's Stamp Gang mist on a piece of thick cardstock and then stamped out the cupcake image.  I then cut the frosting part of the cupcake out and stamped the image 2 more times.  Once on white cardstock and then again on some pattern paper for the wrapper of the cupcake!  I hope you will join us this month and get a little inky!  Head on over to the Paper Wings Productions blog to see what the rest of the design team has created for this challenge!

It's Debutante Week!

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today I am up on the Clique Kits blog sharing my first layout using Clique Kits very first kit Debutante!!
This kit features the Plus One collection from Amy Tangerine and includes exclusive Clique Kits embellishments along with some fabulous wood veneers from Pinkfresh Studio.  You do not want to miss out on this kit!  There are still a few kits available and you can subscribe HERE.

I created a layout to document a couple photos of my daughter in her tutu!  She is not a girly girl at all so for her to put on a tutu and be a little girly for once is rare so I had to photograph and document it!  Here is a look at my layout.
I would love for you to head on over to the Clique Kits blog to check out my full blog post and while you are there you will find more inspiration using this fabulous kit from Gia and Lacey.  Thanks so much for stopping today!

Clique Kits Hazel & Ruby Blog Share

Welcome to the Clique Kits  Hazel & Ruby Blog Share!  If you have arrived from Jody's blog then you are in the right place.  If you're just stopping by for a visit please click here to start from the beginning.  Today we are sharing projects featuring Hazel & Ruby products.  Hazel & Ruby are a fresh and on-trend company with a handmade flair.  I love the unique and beautiful products and the whole feel of this company!  I am very excited to be sharing my projects with you today using some of their Chalk it Up collection.

The first layout I want to share with you is documenting a normal day here at home with our two youngest boys!  We can not wait for warmer weather so we can get outdoors and we do start to get a little crazy sitting in our home all day!  My two youngest are always either at my feet, on my lap or jumping on my back!  If you follow me on Instagram you have seen many photos of the three of us!  I decided on a black and white photo for this layout and I love how it looks with the beautiful colors in this collection.  I also added a little gold stitching to my layout and lots of colorful ink splatters!  I am in love with the Chalk It Up Bubbles & Babbles Sticker Sheet and I used it with both of my layouts.  And of coarse I could not resit using some of my Pinkfresh Studio washi tape and pink neon brad stickers  I think they go perfect with this collection and it is nice to mix in products you already have with fun new collections!



My next layout came together very quickly and I fell in love with the back side of the Chalky Bokeh pattern paper!  I love the ombre watercolor look and the colors are fabulous!  The photo I am documenting in this layout is of our two youngest and our one and only baby girl.  Our mother hen Alyssa is the best big and little sister.  She is a tough cookie and keeps close eye on her baby brothers as well as her two big brothers.
Again I kept my layout pretty simple adding a few layers and of coarse a couple hints of pink.  I used some more of the Hazel & Ruby Bubbles & Babbles sticker sheet all over my layout and that great camera paper clip that Gia included in out packages is super cute!  The inky white circles are from a my favorite stamp set Art Textures.


Your next stop is Lacey's blog and you are going to love what she has to share today!  Make sure to leave a comment on each blog along the way for your chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the Clique Kits Store.  For extra chances to win please follow the Clique Kits blog,  share on Facebook, and follow each one of the Clique Kits girls!  Make sure to leave a comment for each entry!  Have a fabulous day!
