Anna Marie with Process Video (Crafty Maven)

After a few weeks off it's sometimes hard to get back into your groove. That's when a sketch and inspiration piece can really help me make quick decisions. I started with this weeks inspiration piece from the Crafty maven Getaway.

 I then went to my papers and chose the first thing that I found from the color inspiration which happened to be Basic Grey typeset. A beautiful collection and fit the color and feel of the inspiration perfectly.

Next up I went through my challenge folder to find  a sketch and came across this one from Scrap Our Stash. I really liked it and was then ready to go find a photo to work with. Because I had a journal card I wanted to use I decided to only use one photo.

Here's a look at the finished layout.

Scrapbook Process #122: The Sweet Life

Today I'm sharing a layout I did for the Scrap Our Stash sketch + 3 challenge. I chose to use Kraft, Jillibean Soup, and Lawn Fawn.

I have just a few scraps left of the Red raspberry collection and decided it was perfect for these cute little pics of my baby girl eating donuts. At least I think she ate it. LOL

Wander with Process video

Today I have a stash buster tip for you. If you're like me you always want the newest products even when you have plenty of stash. Sometimes it's still to hard to resist a new collection especially when it's one of your favorite companies like Simple Stories for me. When the new Your Are Here collection came out I knew I didn't need it and that I didn't have a lot of photos to use it with but I still couldn't resist. BUT I tried something a little different. What if I only bought the ephemera pack which would give me plenty of the You Are Feel without breaking the bank. I mixed it up with my stash and scraps and am so happy with the results.

Disney Inside Out (Paper Issues)

Today I have a lovely double page layout using the new Attwell collection from Paper Issues. I fell in love with the watercolored floral paper and new immediately I wanted to use it with photos from the Disney Flower and Garden Festival. The display from the movie Inside Out was perfect for all the different colors in this line and several of the phrases in the embellishments.
