Hi everyone! I created this layout last night after for the June Sketchy Challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. I used the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate Paper. This is one of my favourite releases this year. I love the colours!
Here’s the sketch. We would love to see your creations! Add yours to the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge Gallery.
Here’s a close up. I used lots of Epiphany Crafts products on this layout. The little butterfly seen here was created with the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Tool and Bubble Caps, along with a border sticker by Crate Paper. I love this tool for making cute custom embellishments.
Here, I layered two Crate Paper die cut butterflies and topped it off with a custom made brad by Epiphany Crafts. I used some of the yellow paper by Crate Paper with the Round 14 Tool and Bubble Caps and added a brad setting base. Easy and fun!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you like my layout.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this layout that I created for Elle’s Studio with the new Cameron Collection. I really love this collection, it’s so fun!
Here’s a close up of the left hand side of the page.
The background paper is so ‘done’, you almost don’t need to add anything to it except a bit of journalling and a photo.
Thanks for looking!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this layout that I created with American Crafts` Lucky Charm Collection.
I used a digital cutting file by Pink Paislee Digitals. I stitched around the stars with gold thread.
I cut the title with my Silhouette Cameo using a font called Allura. I seem to use it a lot lately.
The photo is by Elle Dee Photography in Burlington, Ontario.
Thanks for looking! Enjoy your weekend.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this altered project that I created for Epiphany Crafts. It’s an 8 X 8 chalkboard, created with Xyron Adhesives and American Crafts products.
I started off by wandering around my local Michael’s store wondering what I could make to help remind myself about my ‘to do’ list. I came across a black metal plaque in the dollar area. It had a very large sticker on it with a heart that peeled off really easily. Underneath was a plain metal chalkboard that I put inside of a regular photo frame. Because it’s metal, it’s also great for magnets.
I added several die cut flowers and butterflies from American Crafts to the frame. I accented some of the flowers with the Epiphany Crafts Flower 25 Tool.
Finally, here’s a close up of the top of the frame. I love the addition of the Flower 25 Bubble Caps to the centers of the American Crafts flowers. It really finishes them off nicely.
For a step out tutorial of how I created the magnets, please visit the Epiphany Crafts Blog.
Thanks for visiting! Have a great day.

Father’s Day is coming up on June 16. Have you made some cards for the occasion yet? I have made one so far, two more to go! This one is for my hubby. It’s a bit too ‘young’ for my Dad and my Father-In-Law.
Here’s a close up of the card.
I created it using the May Kit, Saltwater and Cameron collections from Elle’s Studio. Elle’s mini-kits come out on the 10th of each month. On the release day (today) the kit is offered for $9.99 and then it goes up to $11.99. They don’t restock the kits and they sell out fast, so get yours today while it’s on sale and it’s still available! Here’s a pic of the June Kit.

Hi everyone! I just want to share this layout that I did for Pink Paislee with their digital collections.
I used the Spring Jubilee collection with digital elements from the Shabby Sugarland collection and the Circle Stars cutting file / mask.
The photos are by Elle Dee Photography, graciously taken for free at a year-end party at my children’s public school. The photographer, Lori, was on-site at the event along with a big table of ‘rock star’ outfits and props for the kids to wear and pose for photos. The photos were provided to the parents, free of charge, via email. How nice is that?! As a scrapbooker, I was pretty thrilled. It was the best part of the whole party! LOL!
