Disney USA with Process Video

It's Tuesday which means it's Disney day here and on my youtube channel. I started with a few pictures from the World Showcase and a couple of papers thinking I was going to do a quick simple layout. LOL it didn't quite go as planned. I'm really pleased with the end result but boy was it a journey to get there.

Sometimes it just takes longer to get where you're going.

Scrapmingle #4 - Hello Sweet Girl

Welcome back to the fourth layout in my Scrapmingle series. I pulled the pink papers to start my layout then pulled in some gray and gold along with other items from my stash to stretch it out. It feels good to get so much product used up and some old photos with memories documented.

This is the final layout with the Crate Paper Poolside but I'll be back next week with another collection and another Scrapmingle! Thank you so much for the wonderful response and all the encouragement. I really appreciate it.

Here's a look at the process from start to finish

Cocoa Vanilla with Process Video

Hello all! I'm here today with a layout I created using the fabulous Hello Lovely collection from Cocoa Vanilla for my Mix It Up Monday challenge at My Scraps and More.

The soft beautiful colors were perfect for this photo of my grandparents. It's one of the only photos I have so I was waiting for just the right collection. The soft peachy and blue colors are perfect combination to the clothing in the photo.

What Brings You Joy - CTMH Blossom

We're nearing the end of the cycle for this Close to my Heart catalog and I saved the best for last. Blossom is truly my favorite paper collection in this catalog and maybe since I've been a consultant. It's so versatile and I've done a variety of layouts with it.  Check out last weeks post and I'll have another one next Saturday but you better grab your Blossom now before it's sold out!

I did a double page and pulled out some photos when my kids were younger on a field trip with their homeschool group. Brings back many great memories but I'm also glad I'm through with that stage of my life. Being a mom and their teacher is not always fun. LOL

And some close ups

Blossom paper
Aqua glitter trim

Lots of great items like the ones used in this project are retiring so grab them quick.

All orders placed between now and Aug 31 on my website will receive a NEW 2015-16 catalog from me!!

Organizing Roller Stamps with Process Video

If you're like me you've gotten a few roller stamps and you might not be using them for the same reason I wasn't. i simply couldn't remember what I had or read them when I thought about using them. I decided to do something about it.

Here's a look at my solution.

If you're reading in email click the link below to watch
Roller Stamp Organizing

I cut my cardstock to 3x5" and corner rounded them. I matched the color of my stamp handle to the cardstock and then stamped each stamp on them. Punch a hole and put them on a ring and you have a fabulous visual tool to remember what you have so you can get some good use out of your roller stamps!

I hope you find this useful and give it a try. Let me know if you do and how you like it. Also if you've found other ways to organize and use them tell me about it or leave me a link.
