Christmas Basket

Made this basket for a holiday basket swap I am in. I have to make another for Thanksgiving, but wanted you to see my first creation. It is made out of 9x9 double sided cardstock. I think it came out beautiful, and very Christmassy. Is that a word?  Oh well, if it isn't I just made it one. LOL! Hope you enjoy looking at it! Thanks for stopping by!

Lil Angel

For this layout I used the So Sophie collection by My Mind's Eye. These papers were in the August kit of the month at Pages in Time. They are just beautiful! I also used the Thursday sketch which is posted on the Pages in Time blog. Again I used my new Martha Stewart punch called swirling lace. The other punch is the doily lace punch but it is starting to stick. May need a new one. All the flowers, leaves and bling are made by Prima. Now here's the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by!

Cherish the Memory

Well, I goofed. I adhered before I was totally happy and I am stuck with something that doesn't look as good as it should. I wish I could have gotten the paper in the top corner off, but no such luck. I know better, but sometimes we goof anyway! I used the Bo Bunny Jazmyne collection for this lo and their chipboard. The flowers are made by Petaloo. Oh and before I forget, I used my new Martha Stewart swirling lace punch! I love it! I swear, by the time I die, my room will be nothing but punches! Thanks for stopping by!

Love of My Life

I used the Thursday sketch from the Pages in Time blog for this layout. The papers I used are from the August kit of the Month. I kept it very simple. I could have added a ton of embellies, but once in awhile simple is nice.   It's a layout of my husband as a baby, the love of my life! Thanks for stopping by!

Marie Antoinette ATC's

Well I joined another swap and this time I am making ATC's, and sticking with the Marie Antoinette theme. I am French, so it's like history in the making for me. LOL! Get the pun? Oh well, I tried. I always have fun making ATC's, but four at a time is my limit. Still have to make that other shoe, but I am itching to do a layout. so the next thing you see should be just that! Thanks for stopping by!

We Adore You

Another layout of my sweet grandaughter. I used two different collections from Bo Bunny. The Jazmyne and Sophie collections. Love these papers. All the chipboard is from the Sophie collection. I did some punching using the Floral Vine deep edge punch, and  the Modern Garland border punch by Martha Stewart. This is probably the easiest layout I have done in awhile. All that chipboard made it go together so easy, and I still have a bunch left! Well I'm off to start something else. Thanks for stopping by!

Marie Antoinette Shoe

Well here's something you won't see everyday. I am in a Marie Antoinette shoe swap. I have to make two shoes that are fitting for a queen. I have finished one and thought I would let you all take a look. I think the easy part was putting the shoe together. I had more trouble deciding what to decorate it with, but then my lace order came and it all came together. Hope you enjoy, as you will be seeing one more.

Mama's Shoes

I did this layout for a Guest Design Team position @ I used the sketch she created, and boy does she do some fantastic sketches. I used the Basic Grey Lemonade collection and for a change kept my layout simple. I do love the way it turned out! Now here is the sketch:

Please visit her blog and see how two other people interpreted the sketch.

Cheek to Cheek

I used the Brook collection by Crate Papers and the Thursday sketch from the Pages in Time blog. Those wonderful papers came in my August kit and I love the color combo! I also used a technique I shared in my new group Punching Passion. You really need to stop by and learn how to put your punches to even more use. Here's the link to my group: Now to show you the Thursday sketch:

Yes, I go a little crazy and keep adding embellishments. But that is what a sketch is about. It gives you a base to start and then you make it your own.
