{july jbs mercantile kit featuring...

...a flair for buttons!!!
I am so excited that Shelley's flair is part of the July JBS Mercantile kit! You all are going to LOVE this kit! From the hexagon mask in the main, the Sassafras paper designed for Studio Calico's Hey Day collection {featured in the artisan kit}, to the A Flair for Buttons flair in the mini album kit; it ranks right up there as a favorite kit!

While today is sneak day over at the JBS blog, the 30th at midnight is the full reveal; so mark your calendars!!!

{scrapbook steals featuring OA 9 to 5...

I am super excited to once again be guest designing for ScrapbookSteals.com.
The place is FULL of fun scrapbooking ideas & they feature steals twice a day!


October Afternoon has long been one of my favorite manufacturers and the 9 to 5 collection is no exception to their awesomeness! Their colors and combination of vintage with modern patterns are perfection. 
I set out to create layouts that show the use of the collection beyond the "office" theme. 
I started first with a baseball page about my oldest son: You are a Super Baller

For the journaling piece I actually used the packaging from the buttons. Use every bit; that's my motto!

My second page: h&j uses a simple design that can be recreated with any theme.

A black & white photo pops against the vibrant colors of the 9 to 5 collection & the ledger paper is the perfect place for your journaling to land.

My last page: Bed Time Routine shows a simple yet effect way to turn your buttons into a fun confetti like design on a page or a card.

I love creating a page like this. It's not about a special "event", but rather about something that happens everyday at our house. Something that may get forgotten if not recorded with paper and glue. 

And last but not least; a simple card: Miss You - The perfect way to reach out to a friend you haven't talked with in a while.

Supplies: Family Dynamix: Quadrants, Alpha + Bits Stickers Sunshine & Happiness: Happy Clouds Sophisticates: High Five Alphabets: Pink-Red & Yellow Sophisticates: Chio Chip Elements: Stars & Hearts

One of my favorite embellishments that come with the Bella Blvd lines are the Alpha + Bits Stickers sheet. Each line has one and each sheet includes photo corner stickers. I wanted to come up with a way to use these differently so I cut a strip of the Coredinations Paper about 12x3 and adhered the photo corners to it with spacing between them. I then cut that strip vertically into 3 pieces. Once I had adhered the 3 strips to my design I ran them through the sewing machine to insure all the little pieces would stay in place. Such an easy way to extend a few stickers!

Supplies: 
Baby Girl: Daddy's Girl, Pretty in Pink, It's A Girl, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Alpha + Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons, Minitures Stickers
Button Market: Pink Flowers, Aqua Flowers
Designer Tapes: Teal Stripe, Yellow Chevron

I love the Core'dinations aqua & pink dots paper. It was the perfect compliment to the Baby Girl line. A few strips of Designer Tapes & lots of punched circles to mimic the "bubble bath" photo created a quick and easy design.
