I Treasure You

Today I wanted to share a layout that I created with a sketch from Back Porch Memories.  Here is a quick look at the sketch that inspired my layout.


Now for the layout!


To start I cut a scribbled circle out of white card stock on my silhouette.  I layered papers from Maggie Holmes Open Book collection that coordinated with colors in my photo.  I embellished a glitter tag with some fabric and chip board pieces.  To finish off the layout I added lots of detail stitching around the page and added my journaling at the bottom with my typewriter.  I loved creating this layout with a mix a light and bold colors.  I have to say that I am always a sucker for a great sketch!  Now for some detailed pictures.  Enjoy!DSC_0535 DSC_0536

Sketch-N-Scrap Card Sketch #41

Hi all!  It is time for a new card sketch over at Sketch-N-Scrap.

Here is the sketch designed by Kelly.


Here is the card that I created using the sketch.  I used papers and embellishments from Maggies Holmes Open Book collection.  I am really loving the femine feel of her collections right now.  I also love that the Open Book collection has rich, dark browns.  For the sentiment and gold accents around the card I used rub ons.

Documented Memories-Sunday Best

Hi all!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I am happy to have you here.  I noticed lately that I have been using a lot of white in my layouts.  I love the look of white textured card stock on a layout.  It just looks clean and simple.  Although I love this look, I needed to push my self out of this routine.  I looked through my papers to find some rich, deep colors to compliment a picture of my boys at church.  After finding some complimenting paper and embellishments this layout came together quickly.  Take a look!

Have you found your moment of everyday perfection today?


Love you Lots


This is a recent everyday moment.  I snapped a quick picture of my little guy after a walk.  I wanted to create a layout that had lots of layers.


DSC_0046I also wanted to add lots of little details that would add interest to the page.  Here I stamped feathers on to white cardstock then added stitching to add dimension.

I love using overlays but sometimes I like the photo just as I took it.  In these cases I will layer the overlay behind the photo so it will add color to the paper layers but leave the photo ‘as is’.



I added stitching to the top left and bottom right to connect the top and bottom of the page.  Below you will find links to some of the items that I used on the layout.

Thanks for stopping by!
