Scrapping Wonders Blog Hop

Hello Hello! I have another new project and blog hop for you today! I am hopping along with the rest of the DT from Scrapping Wonders…if you have never heard of Beth’s shop and her amazing travelers notebook inserts be sure to hop along for some fun, artisitc inspiration! ( and then, when you need one of these gorgoues books for yourself…you can grabone right here…HERE)

We have a wonderful sponser this month..Columbus Road Prints! She makes the perfect decor injust the right sizes for you Travelers NOtebooks ( You can find her shop HERE ) She provided the Design Team with some super cute stickers and cards to play with!

For my project, I chose to work in my watercolor insert which I use as an art journal. I received a set of coffee – themed stickers in gorgeous shades of brown and a lovely purpley color!


My background was created using a variety of Distress Inks and multiple stamps from my stash!


I love the effect I got when I paired Distress reinker in Vintage Photo with the brand new Distress Oxides in Seedless Preserves…such a fun effect and perfect for my coffee stickers and photo..


I hope you have enjoyed my art journal spread today! Be sure to check out the process video on my You Tube Channel which will be up later today!

As part of this hop, we are playing a little game of 2 truths and a lie…

Take a guess as to which statement below might be a little less then the truth and leave a comment with it below for a chance to win an exclusive insert from the shop

  1. I am the oldest of seven children
  2. I own 3 dogs
  3. The sky is green

And here is you blog line-up so you can hop along…

Sparklers Unite September Hop With Special Guest Raquel Anderson!


Hello Hello! Welcome to my stop on the blog hop this month! You simply MUST check out the new releases in the shop if you havent…cause *swoon*

I could not decide which sequins to work with first…so I let my photo be my guide. I chose a very recent photo that I just absolutely love of my youngest son with our golden, Molly. I chose to use Lisa’s Starry Night, lots of Shimmerz products (you can find them in the store HERE ), and the new Boys Fort collection from Pinkfresh Studio.

I love how my background turned out using the textured AC cardstock from the shop…It gave my brush strokes a little extra texture that I just love!…Check out this close-up!


So cool!

And I have a very special guest blogger joining me for this hop! Say hello to fellow sparkler Raquel Anderson! And if you are on IG and love scrappy posts, be sure to follow her there too..she is @crazytapelady Take it away Raquel!

Hey everyone! Today I’m a guest on Sara’s blog to share with you my take on this month’s Artsy theme! I used the Tar Tar Acritonez to make a mixed media background, which I haven’t done in a while and it was fun! I scattered the Ferris Wheel sequin mix around as well as added it to the little shaker pockets I made with a special Fuse envelope pocket set.
So fun! I also stuffed in some gold stars sequins because who doesn’t love gold sequins?!  I added some of the Acritonez to a white felt heart to give it more of an artsy look! And of course scattered some cork stars around for added texture. I love how all the elements go with the whimsy of the Carousel collection!
I hope you all have a wonderful September and we can’t wait to show you our other projects coming this month!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us today! Be sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments today and tomorrow for a chance to win all the new gorgeous September release sequins!

From here you are headed over to Ali Scraps and I know she has something awesome in store for you! Her projects are just lovely!!

Have A Lovely Day!

National Scrapbook Day With Paper House Productions

Hello Hello! Yes, it’s Saturday…and I havent blogged since Monday. But its all good because Saturday is still this week which means I accomplished my goal of bi-weekly blogging for this week…wooohoo!

And Its National Scrapbook Day…my favorite day of the year! I am participating in so many things today. I have 4 YT videos going live this weekend, Im hosting a challenge on Instagram with Spiegelmom Scraps and Wild Whisper Designs…and my scrappy bestie has challenges me to complete 6 different challenges at 6 different online crops…I accept! And I’ll have a blog wrap up of those layouts next week…yay!…something to blog about next week…and really, that’s my blog issue…what to write about…

Today I have a layout to share using a fun, easy framing technique and some summery, fun products from Paper House Productions. I went with this framing technique to share because it uses just a few supplies,is artsy and a little messy…but not very messy, it creates a striking result, and doesnt take long to dry or warp your paper!


Members of the Paper House Productions Team are sharing fun scrapbooking techniques on thier blog all day so be sure to check in over there if you need some scrappy inspiration! They are also hosting a fun You Tube Hop demonstrating some of these fun techniques and giving away a $25 gift certificate to thier online shop!

You can find all the details for that as well as see how I created my frame in the video below-

Have A Lovely iNSD and Ill see you next week!…promise!


April Showers Bring Sequin Flowers Blog Hop..

Hello Hello! Thank you so much for stopping in on our Spiegelmom Scraps blog hop!

We have a lovely theme we are going to try to create projects for this month…what’s not to love about sequins and flowers! I combined the two and created a brand new layout to share with you today! My layout was inspired by those lists of questions that make thier way around Facebook so often…I figured if I was going to take the time to answer 40 things about me…I shoule at least use a few as a journaling page, right?IMG_20170429_124103

I used lots of different sequins mixes, including my favorite from the shop, Mocha Mint Dream… I paired all these sequins with Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection and my cut file is from The Cut Shoppe. It is called Scalloping Circles…but I turned them into flowers. 🙂

If you have never visited my blog before, I would love for you to follow me…I have set a goal for myself to blog twice a week, every week, in May in the hopes of getting into a better blogging routine. I am a returning team member to Spiegelmom Scraps…but there will be a few changes to my assignment this term. I will be managing and creating projects for the Spiegelmom Scraps IG account….yes, we have a dedicated Insta Squad this term and we would love for you to come follow us over there for some IG- only projects! If you are a fan of my Fab Friday process videos…no worries! I will have SMS process videos at least twice a month on my channel as well!

Well….enought about me! Be sure to hop through all of the blogs to get to know the entire team…and make sure to take a peek at the NEW RELEASES! I have just started creating projects with them and *SWOON* they are so gorgeous!

From here your are on your way to Dani’s blog.I was so excited that she is after me and I get to introduce her…she is one fabulous crafter, and the sweetest person…and she does amazing You Tube videos too!

Have A Lovely Day!

And enjoy the hop!



Paper House Productions/Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Co-Hop


Hello Hello! Welcome to Day 4 of our team up with Scrapbook Adhesives! If you haven’t yet, please be sure to swing by both the Paper House Productions blog and the Scrapbook Adhesives blog so you dont miss out on all the fun and the GIVEAWAYS! There are giveaways on the blog, on Facebook, and Instagram, so whatever your social media of choice is, there is a giveaway there you can enter…AWESOME!

For this team up, I decided to create a pocket page for my travel album. I wanted just an introductory page to seperate 2 different trips our family took in my album. I decided to create a simple pocket page for this using the Discover USA paper crafting kit and the generous supply of products from Scrapbook Adhesives. And, as an aside, I am now thoroughly obsessed with using photo corners on my pocket cards….they add such a nice, clean element to a pocket card! I love how they look in my pocket pages! To see photos of the front of my pocket page, visit the Paper House Productions blog…..but here is a process video of how I put the page together and the products I used from Paper House Productions and Scrapbook Adhesives-

I kept the backside of this pocket page very simple, and I decided not to create it on camera to keep my video length reasonable…but here is a photo of the other side, using all the same products-

IMG_20170422_141549I hope you have been enjoying all the fabulous projects along this week-long hop!

Have A Lovely Day!


Fab Friday With Spiegelmom Scraps!

Hello Hello! I hope you are all enjoying your Friday! Right before I sat down to create this week’s layout, I had a lovely new collection, Aint’ Life Grand by Pretty Little Studio (designed by Ashley Horton) arrive and I KNEW I was going to sit down and create a layout with it right away! I found the perfect embellishments from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop and away I went…and I dug into my stash too, so I could create SHAKER CLOUDS! IMG_20170405_083834.jpg

I love how sweet, and summery this layout feels, even if this photo was taken during a brief warm-up we had in February. And, yes, the photo isnt the most perfect..but that smile sure is!
