Glory to God Christmas Decor

It's December, which means there's a new kit out for the Scrapbooking Store. I love the collection of Christmas papers they put together for this kit. I have lots of plans for it, but today I'm starting with this Glory to God Christmas decor.


I created a simple printable of Luke 2:14. Then I printed it out on one of the more solid colored papers from the December kit. I layered on top of a more bold patterned paper, and then attacked it to a wood sign. You can download the printable for yourself here.




I used gold star rub-ons from the kit upgrade to add a little extra sparkle to the printable. I used Craft Glue Dots® to hold it all together. I know the stick will last so I can use this home decor piece for years to come.


Creating home decor pieces for Christmas is one of my very favorite things to do, and this one was so simple!

I received the Scrapbooking Store December Kit for free but all of the projects and opinions are my own.

Scrapbooking Store November Kit Layout

I'm back with another Scrapbooking Store November kit layout. It really is just a gorgeous kit, and so easy to create with.


I had to use that multi-color tiny leaf print. I love an all over tiny print. So pretty!


There are some really lovely stickers included in the kit and the upgraded kit. They're perfect for layering. We go to the same pumpkin patch every year for pumpkins, so I opted for lots of word stickers instead of traditional journaling. 


Such a great autumn kit!

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!

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.
