Celebration is over and now it’s scraptime!

Hello everyone.  I know post have been pretty sparse but I do have some catching up to do getting some mojo back.  Hoping to come up with some YouTube tutorials for Photoshop if you like and more.  I had just gained a position with Just Jamie in the LilyPad, an amazing digital designer that will be having me to hybrid projects once a month.  I love, love, love her work.  I am not to excited about what I did with this one.. but that is my fault throwing things together in a hurry.  Bad habit of mine on my layouts. But hey it works, you know how they say, don’t over think it, so I can move on, right?  So for those traditional scrappers this is a perfect easy layout for you or you can mix it hybrid.  This isn’t my post for her Design Team, I only did this one on my own for fun. I have something else up my sleeve with the project of the month!  This is from her Hunter story teller collection and it is amazing as if you click on the link you will see.  So proud to work with such a top designer!  Missing Juliana as well but I am sure that Jamie and I will get along just fine!



Testing out my new phone capabilities, OH MY… it’s alot to learn going from Apple to Android.  I am constantly on it learning new settings.  I don’t know why 3-5 different companies think they need to sync your photos to their servers including Google plus and more.  UGGGh!  If you have any tips on how to stop sync, because it will come back after you have stopped it, please post here to give any great tips you have.  I got a Galaxy Note 4 because I am in love with the sPen.  Disappointed in Apple not trying to compete with something like that as an artist.  If they ever do, I may just hook back up with Apple.  The size is nice but doesn’t fit my hands. I knew how to NOT sync anything with them so no worries there. I am sure you all don’t want to see my whole family life on Google plus!  lol  With that being said, I have cleaned it up!  

Well this was just a random post for the week, hope to see you much more this week as I am on vacation and plan to get some stuff done.   To much to toss or sell off!

Either that or get busy crafting again.   

If you are not already connected, I will see you next post or on Facebook!

Happy Crafting!

One heck of a digital scrapbooker’s dream sale going on now!

I am sad to see her go, as she is so talented and I feel so honored to have been on her team.  She found me through a design team call but asked me if I wanted to be a blog writer instead.  She had gone through my blog and she actually read some of the tutorials and looked into my blog before asking me to if I was interested, as she had plenty of designers to choose from.  I was so complemented I felt like I was writing for this Brazilian rock star!  Well at first I didn’t know she also does web design and got into photography professionally, the last couple of years of being on her team I have seen her photography grow tremendously.  She has decided that all 3 are just to much and from personal experience I understand you can’t do it all.  The photography is an addiction all on it’s own, and whole team is sad to see her leave designing kits.  So I thought I would post her amazing sale.  Just click on the image and it will take you to her Facebook page.


The layout I made for her to say good bye… It says it all..


All my terms have expired for all the teams I have been on, going solo for awhile, and will post when I can.  I still love to create and will still post as I create until I find my next calling for some new great crafting inspiration!

 Here is a recap of some inspiration projects I have posted on her blog along with the photography tutorials I have posted in my Photography for Beginners page

Until next time!

A little Photoshop layout

Oh I just thought I would play with some of Julianna’s designs and I have been posting these photo booth pics all over Facebook so I was dying to give this kit a try. Oh how fun it is to be in a photo booth.  I have the photo booth app on my iPhone and saved myself tons of money.  I know it isn’t the same experience but you know what?  In the end it was way more fun and we got way more photos!  We had a blast.

I wanted t share the layout with you !


If you can get this app on your phone (there are many so I am sure Android has it too) check it out.

 I would love to see some photo booth pics of you too!

Have a great day!

Welcome to the KCC blog hop – Anything goes is the theme today



Here we are in a New Year and all new projects for the hop.  Today Robin Lane will be hosting from Create a Latte, with the New Year,  “Anything Goes” would be a great way to start.  Do you like paper crafts, making cookies, crocheting or making pillows?  Really anything goes for more fun and inspiration for us ladies who love to bake and do other things then paper crafts!

This is what I have for you today, a little story to start.  I started crafting 13 years ago making memory books for my son, then I got pregnant 7 years ago and got my first Cricut, I easily discovered what is beyond scrapbooking and went straight into paper crafts.  Now 7 years later I am sad to be so far behind, as my daughter consistently begs for a baby album of herself.  So I am going to try and dedicate my heart out to making some great albums for her and getting caught up on her scrapbooks, and mix family album.  I have printed the last 7 years as 3.5×5’s so the photo inserts won’t work for the last 7 years.  I will have to either do traditional or digital.  So one night I started in, made it a late night then when I woke up I just kept at it.  It is going to take me forever and a day because this is only one month, the month she turned two and I still don’t have the month finished.  I threw in a couple pages that I don’t think have been displayed yet.  I don’t have her 2 year birthday party done or anything.  So here it goes…it filled a starter album!
