Little Red Wagon - Girl Power

Tracy has issued our challenge this week at Little Red Wagon!!!  She wants us to do something girly!!!  Bling, frills, sparkle....whatever strikes us as girly!

I will admit, I am much more into adventure, exploring and running shoes than I am pink, frills and nailpolish, but I did have a ton of fun putting together my project for this week.

I found this awesome SVG file from My Scrap Chick and immediately thougth it was perfect for Girl Power!!!  I dug out some of my pinkest papers and added a little ribbon and some cute buttons.





I hope you will take some time to create something girly and join in the fun of this weeks challenge.  Visit the Little Red Wagon blog and link up your creation.

Little Red Wagon - Use Confetti

I am so happy to back as part of the team for Little Red Wagon! If you are not familiar with Little Red Wagon, it is a weekly challenge blog designed to inspire you to do something creative with your scrapbooking supplies. You can play along, link up your creation and on the following Tuesday your project might even be featured on their blog!!!!


This weeks challenge is brought to you by Jayne.  She wants us to use 'confetti'. You can use paper, bling, sequins.....whatever you want to achieve the look of confetti!

I wanted to keep in the 'summer' spirit so I made a card featuring this adorable little trailer!  Now, I am not a big fan of camping......but if this trailer is this cute on the outside, can you imagine how cute it would be on the inside?


I used some enamel dots and some wood veneer stars as my 'confetti'!


I hope you will take some time and visit the other Little Red Wagon girls blogs and see what they have created.  Better yet, why don't you create something and link it up over at the LRW blog??

*Trailer was created using my Silhouette Cameo and the Caravan Camper

Sunset in Malibu!

Today I am going to share a layout that I created for a Silhouette workshop that I will be teaching.  It is all about using Silhouette Sketch Pens to create a background.  I was really inspired by this technique and thought it would work great for a layout in Jay's California album.


All the doodling that you see on the background was done using my Silhouette and the sketch pens.  I used a file from the online store and created a frame for my photos.


Lately, I have really enjoyed scrapbooking on top of my photos.  I cut out this word and adhered it right over the photo.


This file was perfect for my sunset photos.  I think is was the perfect way to tie everything together.


Thanks for visiting!  I will be back with more layouts soon :)

Take A Look - California Album

I have been puttering away on Jay's California album and I have finished another 6x12 page.  This was an enlargement that I had printed at Costco in an 8x12 size.  I narrowed it to 6x12 and then cut it up into 4x6 sections to add to the pockets.


I used my Silhouette and added this 'take a look' embellishement......


.....as well as the anchor and chain.


I love how quickly a page can come together by simply matting my photos and adding a bit of die-cut cardstock.  Pocket pages are my favouite way to scrapbook, especially with so many photos to get into this album.

Thanks for visiting :)

Do What You Love - Silhouette Cameo Deco!!!

I am finally getting around to sharing my decorated Silhouette Cameo!!!  I just love it.

I was teaching a Silhouette workshop using vinyl and I decided that decorating our Cameo was a good way for everyone to get some hands on experience.  This is what I came up with!!!


I picked a quote from the Silhouette online store.  I tried to select something inspiring and motivating.


In the workshop I wanted to demonstrate how to layer different colours so I chose to add these adorable butterflies to my design.



My final detail was to add a heart next to the Cameo logo.....because I really LOVE my Silhouette.


It looks great sitting in my craft room and brings a smile to my face everytime I see it. Thanks for visiting!!!
