Cosmos Cricket challenged their readers to use the mini 6x6 papers on a layout. I have a few of those cute little pads, but was a little stumped on using them on layouts so took the challenge head on!! I could have made things a little simpler for myself by punching a bunch of similar shapes and adding them in rows, but I wasn’t going to let myself off that easy! I needed to figure out a way to use my usual layers. Inspired by sketch from Pagemaps, this is what I came up with!

Little details like stitching can change the feel of the layout!

I used a shape scissors to add some fun to the leaves.

I adhered my journaling strips with foam dots.

Fun Fold Out Mini!

I found the instructions for the cutest little mini fold out album at Splitcoast Stampers. I want to share one I created for a baby gift! It's a blend of Jillibean Soup papers, my monthly scrapbook kit from Shawn Davis Designs, and Imaginisce I-rock goodies!!

Using my Jillibean stamp and VersaMark stamp pad, I stamped a few flowers onto the yellow polka dot. After embossing the flowers with clear glitter embossing powder, I finished them off by attaching Imaginisce jewels using my I-rock!

I trimmed some punch pieces to create the frame around the edge. The Jillibean Soup patterns and colors are perfect for a baby book!

Using my Imaginisce I-rock, I added a splash of bling throughout the mini.

Machine stitching, faux stitching, and doodling added a lot of character to the book. The flowers, and scallop rectangles were cut using my Cricut Expression from cartridges Walk in my Garden (flowers), and Storybook (scallop rectangles).

blogger is back, and so am I!!

I have a little catch up to do after last weeks blogger fiasco. I am going to start the week with a reveal for Nuts About Sketches.

I just love these papers by My Little Shoebox, and they have the cutest matching accessories but for some reason I seem to struggle with putting them together. They are so adorable that I will keep practicing!!

Aren’t these diecuts and stickers just adorable?! I added pop dots for dimension, and a little bling for pizzazz.

The branch w/birdhouses is another adorable sticker. I added some stickles to the leaves for a bit of sparkle. The clouds were cut from the pattern paper, adhered with pop dots, and covered in stickles.

Happy Scrappy Day!!!

(Please excuse the weird spaces in my post...blogger is going wacky! I hope they fix it soon!!)

Isn’t she just precious?! After scrapping mainly boys for so many years, I am delighted to scrap some pink frilly goodness! The cardstock, ink, chipboard and lovely felt flower are courteous of my kit from Shawn Davis Designs. She hand makes the felt flowers herself! Aren’t they adorable!!

Here is a close up of Shawn’s handmade felt flower.

Using my Cricut Expression and Storybook Cartridge, I cut the circles for my handmade flowers. Before assembling the flowers, I inked the edges for a bit of color. The leaves were also cut from the Storybook Cartridge. Using my i-rock from Imaginisce, I added a splash of sparkle here an there adding to the femiinine feel.

Using the ink from my kit, I covered a chipboard butterfly from my stash. After the ink had dried, I stamped the word/music image onto the butterfly. I finished the butterfly off with a hand stitched trail.

I love using my Gypsy when cutting! Not only can I use the layer feature to see how everything aligns before it cuts, it also allows me to weld letters together as I did in the shadow of my title!
