Piles of Smiles

Just thought I'd share another layout with you. I know its still the middle of Summer but I don't scrap in order or with the seasons so I'm sharing them as I make them.

I used a mixed mash of products on this one including Basic Grey, K&Co., MME and Pink Paislee paper. The chipboard letters are from K&Co. (two different sets). I also used a paper bag and scallop border punch and some buttons and leaf stamps from Stampin' Up.

I used my sewing machine and stitched along the edges of the papers. I really love sewing on my projects.

Scrapbook Nook DT Layout!!!

I love the colors and patterns in the new MyKonos paper collection from 7 Gypsies. I also used the Numero tickets by 7 Gypsies. Jillibean Soup came out with these blossom twine flowers. I used the natural bean color. I thought they really went well with the circular sunbursts in this paper collection. This layout was a little bit of a departure from my norm. I usually don't combine so many patterns together but it was a lot of fun and I think it works. Stitching has been my favorite thing to do lately so its no surprise that this l/o is full of it. If you haven't tried stitching on your projects you should. If you know how to thread a machine you can do it. If you are just starting out ask someone you know to teach you the basics. It's very fun I promise and it adds so much!!!

I guess I should update this blog!

Between field trips, dance recitals, gardening, and baseball it seems it's hard to find the time to be crafty. Not to mention I feel guilty being down in my basement when it's so beautiful outside. I just wanted to say I'm still here if anyone is still checking and I hope to be posting some new projects soon.
