Sweet with Process Video (Cocoa Vanilla)

Today I have a great layout inspired by a sketch at Scrap much. I created it using the new Cocoa Vanilla Life is Beautiful line from My Scraps and More. It's gorgeous!! I added some watercolor to the wood veneer to add a bit of color to the layout and love how it looks. I'm going to have to remember to do it more often. The large doily behind was a great base for all the beautiful embellishments in this collection.

All Boy with Process Video

Sometimes layouts just don't go as planned and sometimes you try to stretch and do new things that just don't work out. That's when you start again and go back to what you know and love. I started this layout 3 times before I was happy with it. I wanted it to be something I loved as much as the photo of my son with his black eye. LOL

Come along as I share my struggles and the final outcome

Good Times (CTMH Sangria) with Process Video

Looking to do a really quick double page layout? If you're short on time but want to scrap then grab a sketch and the Sangria collection and follow along with me.

I had these photos from my hubby's high school reunion I really wanted to get scrapped so I found a fabulous sketch then pulled my Sangria paper, complements, and assortments and I had them scrapped in no time.

Using 6x6 pads is a great way to get a sampling of all the paper in a collection as well as I love the smaller prints so you can really use a lot of different patterns on a page.

3. Do you scrap standing or sitting down?
4 What is more intimidating to you using scraps or new sheets of pattern paper?

6. What’s your favourite day on Crafty Maven?
7. What scrappy supply are you obsessed with (ex. Thickers)
8. What element do you just have to add to every page to consider it done (ex. Enamel dots)
9. What trend are you just OVER or don’t understand in scrapbooking (ex. Adding foxes to everything)
10. What is that one embellishment that took you forever to use? (Maybe show how you finally used it)
11 Be honest do you pre-plan your videos
12. What are your non scrappy hobbies?
