Love Is in the Air

I am smitten by the lovely new kit by Mari Koegelenberg and Sugarplum Paperie!

Such pretty, pretty colors!

I have been super busy for the past 8 weeks or so, and have not been taking many pictures at all. But last weekend we went out for a bit to enjoy the pretty winter scenery, and I am glad we got a few good shots, including this one.

January Mixed Media Monthly

It's time for a new Mixed Media Monthly (M3) kit at The Lilypad! This month's theme is travel, and I am in love with it!!

I've got a few trips lined up, so it seems like this kit was made for me! :) I used it and some add ons to make 2 photo less page and a regular page.

On this page I documented the favorite places I've been to. I'd return to any of these in a heartbeat!! I added a short sentence for each place. I loved making this page, it was like a trip down memory lane!

This background paper is so beautiful!

I Need A Vacation


I tried something new this week. I combined the gorgeous Enough brushes by Ali Edwards and the Holiday Hangover digital kit by Allison Pennington (50% off today!!!) to make a 6"x8" page. I added some stamping in black ink and some embellishments to finish off the page.
I have fun experimenting with this size! And it was a very therapeutic page to make. :)

Yeah so my new printer is all installed and ready to go. I like it. Still need to figure out the right setting for 4"x6" borderless printing though as it's just a tiny bit off.

Pretty Winter

I know, it isn't for everyone.. but I love winter. Nothing prettier than a sunny winter day.

Add to that some hot pink, gold and silver..? And a fun page is made! :) I used some of the products in the 50% off sale at The Lilypad.

New Printer!

Hello and happy weekend! I have a busy weekend ahead, with lots of work I need to get done, and some play - I got myself a new printer! :) But first, I want to share with you a couple of pages I made with some awesome new releases.

First up, a collection by Mari Koegelenberg that is super trendy, with the planner craze that has taken over the scrapbooking world!

I have not quite jumped in on the planner wave myself, but I have to say that laying out the month like this really inspired me. Who knows.. I may give this a go!

Next up, a bright, happy kit and journaling cards by Sahlin Studio:

I used this to make a hybrid page. I did this before my new printer arrived so I had to be creative using colors that my old printer would print (yellow was safe ;)).

And here are a couple close looks:

Have a great weekend!

And you can take advantage of today's 50% sale on select products to stock up on new supplies. :) I grabbed a few items from the sale and made this page for the Jan. 2 challenge - using blending modes.

I love how it turned out! I thought that those triangles resembled Christmas trees, and I love the bright colors.
