Scrapbooking Store Autumn Layout

It's time for November's kit from the Scrapbooking Store! I so look forward to getting this kit every month. Today I have a Scrapbooking store autumn layout to share.


Every year we head to the corn maze by our house and have a fun family outing. I just knew this kit was going to be perfect for our family corn maze photo.


The kit features papers from Authentique Pleasant. There are some lovely patterned papers, but my favorite thing about the kit are the thick printed card stock like papers. Green, kraft, brown, and vanilla are all included in the kit. One side has a subtle polka dot print and the other a subtle stripe.


The upgrade kit includes some lovely lace in shades of orange, and lots of fun coordinating stickers (you know I love my coordinating stickers). This might just be my favorite Scrapbooking Store kit yet! 

I received my kit from the Scrapbooking Store for free, but all of the projects and opinions are my own.

Glue Dots and Paper House Productions and a Giveaway

This week is a pretty fun week for me. Glue Dots and Paper House Productions have teamed up together, and since I design for both of them, it's double the fun for me! I have 2 layouts to share and I have my very own give away since these 2 companies are some of my very favorite for crafting.



For Glue Dots® I created this layout about how my husband and I celebrated our 14th anniversary. It features Paper House's Color Wash collection and some of their awesome Faux Enamel stickers. The layout is based off the following sketch.


You can find out all the details (and specific Glue Dots® and Paper House products I used) on the Glue Dots® blog.






For Paper House, I reached for my one of my favorite collections for scrapping sports: All Star. In one paper pad, you get papers and stickers to scrap basketball, football, soccer, and baseball!


To keep everything together, I used Glue Dots Premium Glue Tape and Pop Up Glue Dots.


Now for the giveaway. I have a Marbelous Paper Pad and matching stickers from Paper House and from Glue Dots I have an assortment of my favorite dots and a tape runner. Entering is simple, just leave me a comment here on this blog post, and you're entered. If you'd like extra entries, just pop on over to my Facebook Page and/or my Instagram and find my giveaway post, leave a comment, and you'll get another entry. It's that simple. I'll announce the winner next week.

I hope you enjoy this week of Glue Dots and Paper House as much as I do!

Autumn Card with Glue Dots and Pretty Pink Posh


Hello! Welcome to your next stop on this very fun collaboration with Glue Dots and Pretty Pink Posh! Today I have an autumn card with Glue Dots and Pretty Pink Posh to share.


Glue Dots® products used: Pop Up Glue Dots® and Permanent Glue Tape®.
Pretty Pink Posh products used: Autumn Blooms Stamp Set, Autumn Blooms Dies, and Happy Owls.


Autumn Blooms is a versatile set that can be used for lots of seasons. To keep that autumn feel, I went with some greens, teal blues, deep purples, and rich oranges for my color palette.


Glue Dots® Premium Glue Tape is my go to adhesive for putting cards together. I used Pop Up Glue Dots® to add some dimension to my "congrats" panel.

Scrapbooking Store September Kit Lambeau Layout

It might be October, but I'm still busy working with the September Kit from the Scrapbooking Store. As soon as I saw the kit, I had this layout idea in my head, but I finally got this Scrapbooking Store September kit Lambeau layout made this week.


Most people might not think sports scrapping when you see a pretty, floral scrapbooking kit, but this Wisconsin native saw the green and gold and knew it was destine to be a Lambeau field layout.


I chose coordinating embellishments from the upgraded kit after I laid out my papers. I chose embellishments that weren't overly themed or flowery, since we're standing on the field of a football stadium.


We've been to games at Lambeau field, but this is the first time we took the tour. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend it. It's a lot of fun, and you can tell the people who give the tours love their job. Plus, you'll get lots of great photo opportunities!


I also can't recommend the Scrapbooking Store's kits (especially the upgraded option!). You get so many pretty papers and embellishments for a great price. If you want to save even more money, use the code SAM10 to get 10% off.

I received my Scrapbooking Store September Kit for free, but all the opinions and projects are mine.

Sunshine and Rainbows Card

After using Pink & Main's Sunshine die and stamp set to create a layout, I wanted to also use it to create a card. I created this sunshine and rainbows card for my niece's birthday.



I used Pink & Main's Rainbow 6x6 paper pad since it seems to match so perfectly with the Sunshine die and stamp set.


Glue Dots Premium Glue Tape® is my adhesive of choice for flat scrapping. I also used some Pop Up Glue Dots® to add a little dimension to the white panel on my card.


The orange polk-a-dot paper overlaid over the multicolor polk-a-dot paper photographs a bit funky, but in person, it's a great combo! I really do love mixing and matching patterned papers.



 I wrote this post while working on the Glue Dots® Design Team.

You Are My Sunshine Layout



This week Glue Dots® has teamed up with Pink & Main for a blog hop. My You Are My Sunshine layout is just one of many projects to spark your creativity along the way and, of course, there are fun prizes!



 While I love the combination of stamps, dies, and Glue Dots® for creating cards, I thought I'd try something a little different and create a layout.


I used Pink & Main's Rainbow 6x6 paper pad to create the border, center square, and photo frame for my layout. Then I used their Sunshine stamp set and matching die to create the "you are my sunshine" embellishment.


For any flat paper on paper scrapping I love to use Glue Dots Premium Glue Tape®. For adding some dimension to my layout (like I did with the photo and sunshine die cut), I always grab for my Pop Up Glue Dots®



 To see what everyone else has created for the hop, continue along with the following links:

Scrapbooking Store September Kit Layout

I'm excited to be working with The Scrapbooking Store's awesome kits once again this month. So, today I've got a Scrapbooking Store September kit layout to share with you and make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for a discount code if you want to nab one of these kits for
yourself.


The September kit features Echo Park's Beautiful Life. It's a light and fresh set of papers and coordinating stickers.


If you choose the upgraded kit, you also get my favorite item, these gold American Craft Thickers. I'm a bit of a thicker-a-holic. These are some of my favorite yet. They're foam (so they stick a lot better than the chipboard ones), but they have a metallic gold overlay, so they don't look like foam. They have a true matte gold finish to them. I LOVE them.


A little about the layout itself: Back in February my boys and I headed out to California to visit my sister and my niece. There's a small petting zoo by her, and the main attraction is the guinea pig petting zoo area. You get little baskets of veggies you can feed them while holing them. We have a pet guinea pig, so I figured the boys would get a kick out of a whole pen of them. It did not disappoint!


I used muted patterned papers to frame the photos, while using the add-on stickers to add a pop of color and design to the layout.
Want this kit for your own? Head on over to the Scrapbooking Store and don't forget to use the code SAM10 to get 10% off.
