Crate Paper "Neighborhood" love!

OK, so I went a little crazy with this months "Scrappinista" club at Scrapaganza.
Cuz I LOVE this line of papers! LOVE! It was so easy to use... I had no problem creating with this line! FIVE layouts from this kit!

This one is my favorite... I love this picture! Hard to see, but I caught my husband having a great time on a fair ride. To funny!
I love this picture also, of my son walking our old dog. Gabby lives at Grandma's, but Gabe is in charge when she comes to stay at our house.
I love this mustard color, and I love grid. So a monotone layout was in order. The blue, I think, really pops!
That SMILE! She cracks me up! When she is happy, BOY is she happy!
This was a SUPER simple layout! But it keeps the focus on that smile!
...and more sewing... I have been sewing so much on my layouts lately!
And last (but hopefully not least) is this layout. I borrowed this picture from my friend Alicia! I couldn't help scrappin it! I know 2 of these little ladies! They are so sweet!

More sewing... this time I used the Bazzill circle template. Thanks for stopping by! These papers are available at Scrapaganza-and if you are looking for a great scrapbooking club that INCLUDES a monthly class with your kit, where you will get to idea share and learn techniques, give it a try!!

Little Cuties-Imaginisce New Release (BOY!)!

OK, so day two...
So I guess they intended this line to be "baby"... so I decided one baby layout was in order!

I love an occasional 8x10. Great with thos showcased smaller pictures too...

I decided to isoloate a lot of the stars from the boy line for this layout. I love stars. And this picture has been waiting for a layout. It is very simple, but sometimes the clean lines of "simple", make me happy. (Nothing much else in my life is simple!)
Be sure to check out all the other girls did with this line, AND comment on the Imaginisce blog for a chance to win the new line!!

Little Cuties-Imaginisce New Release!!

I am not sure if it is the color of spring, or the whimsy flowers, or the sweet argyle I like best about this release, but I had NO problem creating these layouts! Layouts I can say came easily, and made me feel like I was getting something done!

Check out the new Release by Imaginisce! If you are all about "gettin' er done", this is a collection to go for! The dolls in girl side of things make this not just for babies"-the same with the stars and toys of the boy line!

Thanks Imaginisce, for another great release!

Paper Piecing everywhere!!

OK, so my Cricut Expression doesn't get as much use as it should. I'll admit it.
But I did get it out recently for a call I was asked to do.
And I liked it. (Did I just say that?)
OH, I do a shape here and there... but the layered stuff...
I was too scared. Not any more.
One of the layouts are up for consideration for the book I submitted too...
But this one I can share! (using Stella and Rose as the backdrop!)
FIVE Cricut elements! :) The owl, the title, the green border, the Ukrainian nesting doll, and the banner! Can you believe? Maybe I am just showing off now.

See how I snuck 3 Epiphany Crafts embellishies in there too?? :)
I kinda feel I have to ink my layered elements... I like the look better. Speaking of paper Piecing, that is April's Challenge of at Imaginisce!!
My layout will be featured in the mid-month inspiration (where I did hand cut paper piecing that time), so go on over and check it out!!
