Webster's Pages: Gingerbread Joy

Today I have a new layout to share featuring the "Gingerbread Village" collection from Webster's Pages. This collection was perfect to use for a layout about creating a gingerbread house! We have started a tradition where we put together our house with my mom. It's very fun to do together!


I cut the ornaments out of the patterned paper in the collection using my Cameo. Then I backed each ornament with vellum. The bow at the top of the gold ornament is vellum and part of the "All That Glitters" collection.


I cut my title using my Cameo and green cardstock. The little "Joy" stickers are mini alphabet stickers. 


Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Gossamer Blue: Love You & Blog Hop


Today the Gossamer Blue team is showcasing projects we created with the November kits. This layout was created using only the main kit. We were out and about on a gorgeous fall day last month and snapped this photo on my phone. I really loved the exclusive paper I used for the background, designed by One Little Bird.


The Gossamer Blue kits always include exclusive printables and I cut out the circle to use my journaling.


For the title, I used one of the exclusive cut files and then punched out some leaves to draw out the golden color in the background paper. 


And here's the rest of the team's projects you can hop around and visit their blogs:

Webster's Pages: Our Family

Good morning! Today I have a new layout to share for Webster's Pages and the gorgeous new collection "The Nest", designed by Brandin O'Neill. We recently had family photos taken by my good friend, Carrie Krupke. I absolutely adored this photo - the trees were just the perfect shade of yellow. It was a beautiful day. I knew I wanted this one to be the first photo I scrapped.


I love the warm colors in this collection and I helped draw it out the orange in our photos with orange cardstock. 


I created a simple grid so I could highlight the frames (easily cut out of one of the patterned papers). And I just adore the vellum - perfect for adding a softness to the layout.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Gossamer Blue: Happy Halloween

Good morning! I have one more layout to share with you using the October Gossamer Blue kits - this one focuses on the Life Pages themed add-on with my favorite orange, black and white patterned papers thrown in from the rest of the kits. These are photos from last Halloween when we went to Night Eyes at our local zoo.

I created a couple focal points with the cut out spider webs.


The middle of each spider web is embellished with layered die-cuts and stickers.


I also used my Cameo to cut out the "halloween" part of the title.


I love being able to use so many photos on a two-page layout. 


Thanks for stopping by today!

Gossamer Blue: Time for School

Good morning! Today I have another layout to share with the October Gossamer Blue kits. I love the color scheme - of the teal, orange, gold and bright blue. When I saw the alphabet card from Chickaniddy Crafts, I knew I wanted to create a layout to highlight the first day of school.

I cut out the title mostly with my Cameo and used the My Mind's Eye square cut-outs as a focal point on the left hand side of the page.


Those MME die-cuts were a great way to add a splash of color to this layout.


Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Gossamer Blue: Fall Love

Good morning! We have had quite the month in my family so because things have been a little crazy around here, I haven't had the chance to share more of my work with the October Gossamer Blue kits. I knew I wanted to create a layout highlighting our time at a little pumpkin patch near our house. 


I love all the natural elements in the kits this month - the wood veneer and beautiful fall colors.


When I saw these Teresa Collins tags, I knew I wanted to print some of the photos to fit on them and make them a focal point of the layout.  


Thank you for stopping by today! :)

Stitch Fix Review #10

Hello! It's been quite a while since I have had a Stitch Fix so I was excited to get one this month. I had some credit leftover from the Mother's Day gift card I won so I saved it to get another fix for fall.  Maggie was my stylist again this month. My items ranged in price from $34-$88.
 
Here are my reviews for previous fixes: Stitch Fix Review #1, Stitch Fix Review #2, Stitch Fix Review #3, Stitch Fix Review #4, Stitch Fix Review #5, Stitch Fix Review #6, Stitch Fix Review #7, Stitch Fix Review #8, Stitch Fix Review #9.

Here is what I received:
1) Pixley Ivy Petal Print Blouse - I always ask for something floral and while I really loved this blouse, I was not a fan of the $68 price tag. It was a flattering fit but I could not justify paying that much for it. 

 
2) LA MADE Nettie Thermal Dress - I had asked for a navy or black dress that I could wear this winter. I was extremely disappointed in this dress. It was $88 and THERMAL and it was about as flattering as a potato sack. It was way too big on the top.

 

3) Market and Spruce - Margarie Stripe & Dot Open Cardigan -  I did like the fit and colors of the cardigan. The contrasting patterns were cute but I felt that also limited how I could wear it and for the price ($68), I wanted to have more of a classic piece.
 


4) LA MADE Mendoza Striped Henley Tank - I also asked for casual tops that I could wear with jeans. I was hoping for something with long sleeves but was sent a couple of tank tops. They are great for layering but this tank felt like something I could buy from Old Navy for much less. I liked it but not the price tag.



5) Olive & Oak Kira Mixed Stripe Racerback Tank - I immediately fell in love with the berry color of this tank - very pretty for fall. And I knew that it would be something I would wear a lot. I tend to like tanks and cardigans with jeans as my fall and winter wardrobe. I don't have anything in this color either.


I ended up keeping the berry tank. It's a great classic piece and the least expensive item that was included. I liked the fall color palette and I know I will wear it often. I have a tiny bit left on my gift card so looks like I'll be getting another fix this winter. Thanks for checking out my review!
