A Dream Come True

Lately I have been feeling like all I am doing is creating layouts to meet deadlines for my YT channel. Now don’t get me wrong I love all the commitments I have made and do enjoy creating for them all, the issue comes to the recording process. I use my phone and I can’t just press record and create a video for two reasons.

  1. There is just not enough storage space on my phone for that!
  2. I don’t create a layout in one sitting.

That’s right it normally takes me between two to three days or times back at my scrap table to complete a layout. I enjoy my process as it gives me time to really examine the layout but it can be hard when you are trying to meet deadlines.

All that being said I have decided to do a series on here where I create a layout without any recording involved. Just getting my scrap on when I can!

I did enjoy using all the white space with actual white cardstock so I also decided to stick with that as well.

Here is what I came up with…

Here are some more close ups…

Thanks for stopping by today. I really enjoyed this process without needing to record myself so expect more to come!



SMS October Blog Hop (National Card Making Day

Welcome you should have arrived from Lisa’s blog, wasn’t her card to die for!?!

How is it already October?? This is my favourite month of the year with all the changes that come along with it. Today we are celebrating National Card Making Day for the SMS Blog Hop, which to be honest I was a little apprehensive about. Why you may ask? Simple I have NEVER made a card before. Gasp I know, its crazy talk, but it’t true.

My goal was to make a card that really spoke to me and something I would want to receive. That’s when the idea came to make a card for my adorable 3 year old niece Keira.14369953_10154129171170756_1840814374649462336_n

She has just started a ballet class and I wanted to send her something happy and fitting. This is what I came up with…layouts11

I know it’t not fall themed at all but I feel like it was so fitting for the change she made in going into her first class of any kind and I wanted her to know she will always be loved.

I used an older chipboard sticker that I had no idea how I was ever going to use and added my favourite Hot Pink Hear Felties on top along with one of the beautiful flower sequins form Passion Flower sequin pack. Then I just sprinkled the Alma Mater sequins on the bottom to finish off the card.

In the end I am so happy with the way it turned out and even more excited for my niece to receive it in the mail!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop your now off to the fabulous Sarah M’s Blog. Have Fun!!
