Hello, Everyone! Wow, can you believe this weather??? It's 25 years ago today that I visited the Southwest and fell in love with the weather. It's so beautiful this time of year - great time for the Midwesterners to get out of that cold and come visit.

Hello, Everyone! My layout that I would like to share with you today is using Vintage Carnival from We Are 3. I just love the colors in this collection. The photo will be of my grandson riding a plane ride.
The cute plane is cut from Toy Airplane (Miss Kate Cuttables).

This card is very quick and easy to make, once the shamrocks have been cut, that is. Just lots of layers for today's Paper Ala Mode Challenge at The Outlawz.

Hi, Everyone! I have been having fun making cards with We Are 3's March Releases - here is another one to share with you. Check out the new papers and images and join in the fun!My card is a standard A2 card. I cut the blue matting and floral background from the Sunny Days collection. The bunny is 1-1/4" x 1-7/8" from Tea Cup Bunny. I used the floral paper design for the tea cup. I added a simple Easter greeting. The ribbon and button makes a sweet finish, don't you think.
My card uses one of my favorite papers - Christmas Tree, and I've also thrown in a bit of Storybook Christmas for a touch of contrast. Pointy Poinsettia is the flower - I love it, is so elegant printed with a gold outline.

Hello, Everyone! Hope you're all have a good week!! I would like to share this simple layout that I made for my grandson's scrapbook - a photo sharing his talents as a new drummer.
The adorable papers are from We Are 3's Little Star collection enlarged for larger stars. This collections has a fun color combination - I just love it! The QR code when scanned takes you to a video of my grandson playing drums for the first time. Pretty quick layout - which I love!

This little treat bag comes from SVG Cuts - Spring Pals Treat Sack. I topped it off with Josephine Clematis from Doodle Pantry. The paper comes form Digital Scrapbooking Experts - Blessings and Baptism. I did recolor the houndstooth pattern inspired by this week's Hues to Use at Power Poppy. These colors are soooooo elegant!!!!!

Hello, Everyone! I hope you're enjoying your Monday. I would like to share a layout I did for a picture of my grandson riding a truck at the mall. Of course, as you know, I can't share photos of the grands.
I cut - I mean tore - the left two panels from We Are 3's Vintage Carnival. Very quick and simple layout - that's what I've been shooting for lately as I am so behind in my scrapbooking.

Hello, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the weather wherever you are! We are having great weather -as usual. Today I found a little time to squeeze in a Christmas card for the fun challenge at Splitcoast Stampers - Featured Stamper #575. Check out their Featured Stamper challenge - one member picked weekly and you can choose one of their cards to case. No prizes - but I love seeing everyone's interpretation. Here is my card.
I cut these lovely poinsettias from Pointy Poinsettias by Fred She Said. The background is from the Outer Space collection by We Are 3.
My project today is another layout for my wedding album.
I used DSE Neapolitan digital paper for the background. I cut flowers from the Josephine Clematis collection from Doodle Pantry.

Hello, Everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!! Can you believe it....2nd post today? I wanted to share samples using more of the Celebrate collection - remember the sale price is 80 cents - good only through the 15th! So I had this idea in my head of coloring snowflakes using the metallic pattern to give kind of an embossed effect. After paper piecing those snowflakes digitally, they were more beautiful than even in my head. I then layered those metallic snowflakes over ... wait for it! Paper from the OUTER SPACE collection. Yes, my background is full of craters. I added Stickles to most of the craters - and voila! A shimmery fun Christmas card! I finished it off with some glittered matting and one last metallic snowflake.
Then I got to wondering...what would the same snowflakes look like if I used a Confetti pattern. So I paper pieced digitally the snowflakes with the green confetti. OMG - I'm telling you the photo does not do these snowflakes justice! But they have an almost holographic look! I used the Galaxy pattern from the same - wait for it! OUTERSPACE collection. The results look like small snowflakes among the holographic snowflakes.
Hello, Everyone! Hope you're having a fantastic week! Beautiful weather here in Sunny Arizona! Here is a card I made using We Are 3 papers. The center panel is from a new paper collection called Celebrate - all kinds of "confetti" printed papers - FUN! And the price is only 80 cents until the 15th! In fact - all We Are 3 digitals are 20% off until the 15th! The design is inspired by Featured Stamper #574 at Splitcoast Stampers.
I started with a white base. The pink mats are from We Are 3's Back to Basics Collection. The top panel is from the Bird's View Collection. The Pink dotted border is from the Exotic Seaside Collection, and the center panel is from the new Celebrate Collection. I added a fun digital image - Beachball Bear from Kadoodle Bug, along with a sentiment from We Are 3's Birthday Wishes Sentiment Collection.
This sweet card featuring the Sweet Sounds paper collection is simply fun! I simply adore the colors and the use of a musical theme. And those roses! They just make me smile!

Hello, Everyone! Happy Sunday!! I hope you're having a great day! As always, it's a gorgeous day here in Southern Arizona. It's 26 years today since I first visited this place - and this beautiful weather and the mountains I can see from this desk - the reason I'm here now. Here's a simple wedding layout.
I used digital papers from We Are 3 - Stamping Studio Welcome. All three beige layers are the same pattern - different sizes - for a tone-on-tone appearance.

What a great way to kick off a new month! We Are 3's new release is called Hello. I hope you are as excited as I am to create with it!
I love how fun this collection is. It combines really wonderful colors. It also has three different frame sheets that you can pair with the zig-zag designs...perfect for using on everything from cards to gift tags.

Hi, Everyone! I wanted to share this simple layout I made for a challenge at Power Poppy - Hues to Use. This challenge runs through Monday, so come on and join the fun and take advantage and get a Valentine or two made! I chose, however, to use the colors in a layout. For those that follow me - I have three pages left in the family scrapbooks. I can see the light!!!! LOL!
For this layout, I used paper from the Miss Daisy Collection (We Are 3) for the background. The clouds paper is from the Fantasy Collection (We Are 3). I added Lego Bricks (Paper 4 Download) to add a little more red to the layout. The flowers are from Power Poppy - Climbing Clematis. I had fun putting this layout together - and the whole time planning similar simple layouts for the rest of my family scrapbook pages!
