Christmas Gift Boxes

July 21st, 2014

I’m really behind on posting. It’s amazing how fast days have been flying by lately.

Last week I shared these little Christmas Boxes on the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog. I thought they would make the perfect gift boxes for handmade jewelry. What do you think?

Let freedom ring! I love the 4th of July! Fireworks, family, and fun. Tonight we’ll light up the BBQ, throw on some burgers and spend some quality time with the ones we love.

This little altered project was so fun to create! I used the NEW Studio Gold by Teresa Collins along with her Urban Market line. I even played with the new Cut’n'Boss a little. I love the Herringbone embossing folder, I think it’s my favorite!

I created this little project for the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog. There are so many fun projects over there…be sure to check them out: CLICK HERE

I hope you all have a wonderful 4th, whether  you’re state-side or across the globe! Make today a good one!

XOXO, Christie

Baby Marcus

In May, I traveled to CA to celebrate National Scrapbook Day at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, and to visit friends and family. My sister was expecting a baby boy on May 28th, so naturally I had to play with baby paper. I spied this adorable baby boy paper by Pebbles called, Special Delivery. So cute!

I went right to work creating some layouts for my sister’s baby.

This Pebbles line had some fun stickers and die-cut embellishments. I was easy to put together cute layouts in just minutes.

I love the little animals in this line…the bear, the owl, the fox. Darling.

I also loved how this line had simple papers included, can you tell I love polka dots? Blue, Grey, tan…it doesn’t matter – I love them all.

This fox was adorable.

When I drove home from CA on the 13th of May, I had no idea that Marcus would arrive so early. I was so grateful that I was home to be with my sister when he arrived the very next day!

Love to you my friends!

XOXO, Christie

It’s been awhile since I sat down with the intention of making only cards, I have to say it was pretty fun.

Recently, I overwhelmed myself with purchasing tons of birthday paper…if I can force myself to spend a little time in my craft room, some birthday card photos may just show up here.

Thanks for taking a look and have a fantastic day!

XOXO, Christie

I signed up to receive the Studio Calico kits a few months back. I finally sat down and created something using the May 2014 Studio Calico Scrapbooking Kit.

Since my mother passed away, I’ve been a little obsessed with scrapbooking her life. She had quite a story to tell…someone has to help document it, right? I guess that someone will be me.

Scrapbook Page & Mini Album All in One

May 31st, 2014

IMG_5724

While I was in CA last month, I designed this little layout for Paradise Scrapbook Boutique using the NEW line Something Wonderful by Teresa Collins.

They wanted a project that would show how to use the little Something Wonderful File Folders.

SW1017-File-Folders-562x520

I ended up gluing the folders together to create a little mini-album effect, then I attached it to a 12×12 sheet, this way it would fit inside a larger album.

IMG_5726

There ended up being loads of space for journaling, which is always a plus!

IMG_5730

I love the little envelope-style folder (pictured above). Although the photos I took were not the best (I used my cell phone), the layout ended up being one of my favorites. I had a lot of fun creating it.

IMG_5733

Since the subject of this layout was my parents trip to Egypt, I phoned my dad to get some journaling ideas. The photo above was the result.

IMG_5735

Not to worry…he did give me some real memories and they’re included also.

Thanks for stopping by today!

XOXO, Christie
