It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is Bella Blvd "Mind Your Manners".
Bella Blvd never dissapoints with their bright colors and fun prints. I was inspired by the chipboard and die-cut pieces that drew me close to home, eventually landing on these photos of making hand-dipped strawberries with our boys.

Hey there!
 I'm here with another Flavor of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom today.
This one features a collection from PinkFresh called "Boys Fort".
Putting this one together was so easy. I used the bolder prints as a base for my photos then took another piece with circles on it, punched some out and used them as supplemental embellishments. There were lots of great die-cuts and puffy stickers (from the embellishment kit) to use as well, contributing to the playful theme of my page. This kit was more fun to play with than I even anticipated! I think I want more 

I pulled a few items from my stash to complete the page --- a bit of washi tape, some mist for splattering the background, alphabet stickers and chipboard letters. The design is my own inspiration.

Saving the World...

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Hello again! Today I have a layout featuring a collection from American Crafts called "Glitter Girl". It's one of the October Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom.
This turned out to be the perfect collection for this photo of a bunch of scrapbooking friends out on our annual shopping trip to the craft store! I love the little credit card looking embellishment which actually became the driving force behind my theme. The bright colors and variety of prints made putting this together so much fun. As I was trying to decide what to do with the title, I saw this die-cut speech bubble that said "saving the world"...the light bulb went off and it was a done deal from there. Love, love, love this FOTM kit!

 The design for my layout was inspired by a sketch I found in the September 2017 collection of PageMaps.

Halloween

Monday, October 2, 2017

HELLO and welcome to October!
It's time for a new round of Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom. First up is this kit featuring Fancy Pants "Spellbound" collection.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret about me. I'm a sucker for Halloween collections. Seriously. I have quite the stash. More than I can possible use with the number of Halloweens that my boys have dressed up for and the amount of photos I have taken. That said...I can't get enough. This one from Fancy Pants is no exception. LOVE IT. I used this month's Jump Start Sketch created by Lisa Hidy for this layout. You can find it HERE on the TSR Blog. I made a few minor changes but really stayed pretty true to the design. I decided to use the treat sack as a pocket for an additional photo, a journal card and another embellishment. I decorated the outside of the bag too, which ended up serving as the title for my page. There were several great die-cuts to choose from in this kit. The only things I added were a few sequins and an eyelet for the tag.

Cards From Scraps - September Edition

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Getting the most out of my kits this month---Yay!!
I had a little time to put together a couple of cards for you using some scraps from my TSR kits.
This first one is from the fotm kit featuring American Crafts " Hustle & Heart". I printed the sentiment from my computer.
The second one I made with scraps from the My Mind's Eye fotm kit featuring "Blush". This tag was just begging to be placed on a love card💕. Super simple but very elegant, I think.
I hope you have enjoyed all the reveals this month for The ScrapRoom.  Be sure to tune into the TSR Blog for sneaks of what's to come in October. You can also find out all about the kits and how to become a subscriber by clicking on the links below the blog header.

Here comes another kit reveal for The ScrapRoom!
Today's flavor of the month is "Hustle & Heart" from American Crafts.
I LOVE the bright vibrant colors in this collection! The kit provides a nice variety of prints from small and subtle to big and bold. This wonderful mix made it an easy kit to work with for the Freak Fast Formula. I chose the bold stripe for the largest cut as I wanted to showcase that piece in a big way. From there it was just playing around with the different patterns and embellishments until I came up with something that made me happy---which was super easy with this one! I enjoyed playing with this collection so much that I just may need to find myself some more!

It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is 
Fancy Pants "Dream Big".
I asked my friend Cassie to send me some photos for this one. For some reason, I was having a hard time envisioning any of my own photos here. Looking at hers though, I totally could have used some of my own that are very similar. Oh well. I got to scrap for a friend and now I will send this layout off to her. 

I like the subtlety of this collection from Fancy Pants. Nothing too bold. I love the pops of red against the soft blue, pink and tan. It's just a nice calm blend of colors and prints. The sentiments are positive and uplifting.
