Clique Kits May Pep Rally

Good morning, everyone!  Welcome to the Clique Kits Pep Rally...today we are sharing fun projects made with our Riga kit.  This kit is chock full of Pinkfresh Studio goodness and feels so fresh and fun.

For my project today, I made a spread for my #52favorites album.  I've fallen a bit behind in recent weeks, but I've been playing catch up and am now just one week behind.  Woohoo!  So, here's my spread for week 18:

I'm having so much fun with this project and documenting Piper's life one week at a time.

So, now the really cool news: if you leave a comment on this post and all the other stops along the hop, you'll be entered into a drawing to win a $10 gift card from Clique Kits.  Pretty sweet!  Here's the whole line-up:

#52favorites with Pretty Little Studio

Good morning, everyone!  I'm just popping in today to share an update on my #52favorites album (a Paper Issues project).  I’ve recently fallen a bit behind on my album, so I’m desperately playing catch up.  It’s a lot easier to play catch up when you are using products that you absolutely adore, which is just what I did for weeks 16 and 17.  I pulled out the With all my Heart collection from Pretty Little Studio, which is pretty much perfect for scrapping photos of my daughter.
Here are my weeks:

I really do love this project aThthathkahtjhatkjd am hoping I can be back on track by the end of the week! 🙂


Miss Piper's 7-month Spread

So, it's possible that I fell a bit behind in my memory-keeping project for Miss Piper.  For now, however, I have caught up with her monthly spreads (I'll share her 8-month one in the next few days), but I am still sadly behind on her #52favorites album.  I will catch up soon...I promise!!

For now, here's a look at her 7-month spread that I recently completed with a kit from Felicity Jane:

This kid is so darn cute and just keeps cuter everyday.  :)


iNSD projects

Hey everyone!  So...I totally forgot to post my projects for iNSD.  Oopsies :)

For Clique Kits I challenged everyone to create a project about themselves.  I used to scrap about myself all the time and then Piper came along.  Now I'm so focused on getting her memories down that I don't focus on anyone else.  But that's not okay.  I know I love seeing older pictures of my parents and I know she will, too, so I'm trying to make more of an effort to get my husband and I on paper, too.

The second challenge was created for Pattern Happy in a team-up with SpiegelMom Scraps.  I challenged people to create a monochromatic project.  I picked out a bunch of blue papers from a variety of Pattern Happy paper pads and topped everything off with some gorgeous SMS sequins:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  You can still play along with both of these challenges, so I hope you're able to!

Last Projects for Jillibean Soup

Hey guys!  I know it's been a hot minute since I've blogged.  Life is so crazy right now.  I just returned to the working world and Miss Piper is more active than ever.  Luckily, I'm finishing up my last class for grad school and if all goes well, I'll be completely done with my Master's in June.  While I am excited to have a new degree, I'm actually more excited to get my crafty time back...lol.

For now I just wanted to pop in and share my last projects as a member of the Jillibean Soup design team.  I had so much fun on that team and feel so lucky to have been able to work with them for over a year!

First, my two layouts:

And a fun, little card:

Thanks so much for stopping by!


April Pattern Happy Projects

Hey everyone!  I am excited to pop in and share my first design team projects for Pattern Happy.  My first project was a spread for my #52favorites album...isn't Piper so super cute in her tub 'o letters?! 

The second is a layout I created with a free file from The Cut Shoppe.

The bright colors and happy patterns from Pattern Happy are all so awesome!  I'm instantly inspired to create with them!

Thanks for stopping by!!


March Jillibean Soup Layouts

Hi everyone!  I realized that I never shared my March Jillibean Soup projects with you here...here are the two layouts I made for March...

The first is a layout documenting the many faces of Miss Piper...she's so stinkin' cute and her shirt in these photos is super accurate:

The second is Miss Piper's 6-month spread:

Thanks for popping in!
