S'mores & Bonfires!

Hi Friends!
Have you survived summer!?
Let's see it's been pretty busy in my home as it is every summer. Three of my four kids celebrate their birthdays in June and July. So it's birthday after birthday and then throw in my nieces and nephews birthdays too! Wait plus mine is in August too!
WE are on sugar overload! My daughter has a tradition now where every birthday is celebrated with  s'mores and a bonfire. Which is fine by me because I love being at the beach.
Come take a look how easy it is to customize your own s'mores!
So we started with finding images online of celeb singers that she liked.

Printed out the photos.
I used this whole punch that you can find at your local craft store.
Placed the face right in the center and gave it a quick punch!
Used some bakers twine and wa-la!  

I placed these in the fridge overnight because I did not want to take a chance on the chocolate melting!

Here my daughter and her friends enjoy their yearly tradition of celebrating my daughter's birthday!
Our group gets bigger and bigger every year! We now rent a 17 passenger van!

The best part of this awesome trip I love to take pictures and now I have loads to scrapbook!
I love being able to scrapbook because when I work on a page I get to relieve that moment over!
Thanks for stopping by my sweet friends!

Maggie Holmes Carousel Collection

 Hey Friends! Super excited to report I went home on Friday and just dove into this collection!
It's absolutely beautiful! The colors, the papers and the embellies are all so perfect!
I took some photos of my process... The photographer in me wanted to show case the embellishments. So there I am for 30 minutes trying to style this photo...

Once I was pleased with my Instagram worthy picture I just dove in to this collection!
This paper was calling me so it's the first one I used. 
I tried to get fancy and punched out some stars and backed them with a few other papers in the collection. 

Here I broke out my planner and made it pretty!  

Thanks for stopping by! 

I have not made a dent in the product they sent me so heres to more creating with no limits!

It's really fun and makes me feel like being back in high school just cutting pretty paper up!

Peace love and pay-pa!

Back to basics!

Hey friends! Happy Fri-Yay!

I have been in a creative slump lately... not creating, not blogging just watching movie after movie!
It's summer and the kids are off so everyday after work we are just on the go.  I move my lil paper project from the kitchen table to my bed and never get a chance to open it and play. I am in the process of moving all my crafty stuff from my master bedroom to a new spot in my garage. My son and husband painted an area in my garage white with white floors. I'm slowly very slowly trying to get it organized but feeling overwhelmed with so much crafty goodness! This is a good thing but I just need to prioritize my time better!

Ok with that being said I decided I needed to get back to the basics. The basics in health and my overall being. My one little word for this year was BE. So I decided I needed to remind myself off all the good things I want to be.   I am starting off this weekend with being good to myself!

photo taken at work excuse my messy desk!
I am going to dive into this box of goodies that Crate Paper sent me!
I just adore this new line of Maggie Holmes Carousel
Thank you so much Crate Paper!! I promise to use every bit of it!

Punch it out!

Hey babes! I'm here with another collection.
This collection is my hand held hole punch collection.
Look its a pretty rainbow!

These punches here I use for banners and making tags.
I won that huge We R Memory one from my sweet friend Amber from Damasklove.
The other have all been purchased at either JoAnn's or Micheal's craft store.
As you can see they come in all different shape sizes.

I think my fav would have to be the white handled cross it reminds me of a cross stitch.
I like punching something different than just a circle.

Well that's it for today thanks for stopping by!
Ha! Don't worry I have a few more  collections to go before I can actually start crafting!

Peace, Love and pay-pa!

Hole Punch Collection!

Meet my collection of hole punches... I just enjoy looking them! Ha! No I collect these because I like to make notebooks or add to my planners at home. I find that it's easier to make your own inserts than have to buy them, remember I'm a big DIY-er!  

Here's a side view... I think my favorite is the Heidi Swapp two whole punch because I always seem to go for it the most. The last two years I have used HS christmas albums so it comes in handy!
I def feel like I need to spray paint one of these pink haha!    

What's your fav punch and what do you make with it!?

Thanks for stopping by!

Scissors Scissors Scissors!!

Scissors well what can I say I use a pair of scissors almost everyday. At work, in the kitchen and getting my craft on. I love a good pair of sharp scissors! My first pair of scissors was my Fiskars. I loved that I felt like a true scarpbooker haha. In crafting I then realized well you can't use regular scissors on fabric so I needed some fabric scissors and thats how my collection grew!   
So every week I am trying to post a picture of the collections I have. I actually took this picture within 10 minutes of laying them down. I was rushed as I had to leave on time to get to work. So here is the other picture I took...

And... the first picture won! Look who reposted, MY GIRL MARTHA STEWART! 
I could not believe! I woke up to see this notification from Martha! I had to screen shot it and since I'm a memory keeper I will be making a layout with this! Take a peep!

I love love everything she wrote! She's my idol! It really makes me feel good about all the little silly things I do. My Kids were so shocked! Just to see their reactions was gold!  

So yes... I will continue to post a whole bunch of silly crafty things that make my heart happy!

I promise more collections to follow!

Pocket Printer Collection

My pocket printer collection...
Why do I have so many?? Well I have been collecting these since I started scrapbooking back in 2012. The selphy was my first purchase and I have to say it's still a favorite. Out of all these it will give me a 4x6 photo and can print as tiny as a 2x2 so it does it all!

I then purchased the Zink Happy which works similar to the HP Sprocket. They both use zero ink technology. They also both print with adhesive backing which makes it so easy to scrapbook!

The Instax pink camera is a snap and go camera. The only thing with this one is once you print that is it you don't know what it will look like until the polariod comes out. I MESSED UP A LOT OF FILM ON THIS! So that's why I purchased the instax printer which you can print from your phone but with the option of adding filters so you get a great print every time. No more wasting film!

So yeah - thats my printer collection and I do not feel the need to add another single printer!

Thanks for letting me share!

Collecting: What do you collect?

What up peeps!!? Today I am here because I wanted to share a few of my collections with you. Laugh if you must but somehow I have found myself with quite a few collections. I am going to be sharing my collections with you here on my blog and on my instagram. First up are these beauties!

I started collecting these roller stamps back in 2012 when I discovered instagram and how there was so many women who loved pretty paper as much as I did! So let me show you the madness...
Um if you read my blog you know my fav color is PINK! So naturally I needed pink holders for these beauties!

These here below do not have a home yet! As you can see in this last post all of them had homes.

What do I do with these you ask... well nothing! hahaha I'm kidding! I use these in my planners, my scrapbook layouts, my kids school projects and tags for gifts. They are tiny enough just to add that lil extra to any project. Oh wait most importantly some of these are dates stamps so those are a must!! I have one that goes back to 1967! I purchased that at an antique fair because it was my husbands birth year. These all hold a special place in my heart as this was my first collection and reminds me of falling in love with memory keeping!    

So as years have passed I am more selective as to which new roller stamps I am adding to my collection. A lot of companies are pretty much using the same phrases and let's face it this madness should stop! HA!  So yeah this is my collection. I usually remove the seasonal stamps and  they have a home with my other seasonal papers. Oh I forgot ... I did this because I wanted to see what my total was. My total is 89!
I'll be back next Wednesday with a new collection of items I would like to share. Follow along I would love to see what you collect! How many do you own!?
You can use #scrapbookersunite on the gram!
Peace, love and pretty paper!!

Sucker For Love! Papercakes digital designs turned into iron ons!

Sucker For Love!

Hey babes! Jossie here showing you how I made this super cute embellie bag. I absolutely love Papercakes digital format of Love Bites. I wanted to try something a little different with the digitals so I printed them on iron on transfer paper.

I know it sounds tricky if you have not worked with transfer paper but I promise it’s easy! Here we go!

Print you digitals on iron on transfer paper.

Gather all your supplies and cut out the images you want to use.


Once you select your image place it in the position you wish.

Make sure to read the direction sheet according to the transfer paper you buy. My transfer paper came with a sheet of wax paper that I placed over my image before I ironed it on.


Once you have ironed over your image check to see if image is sticking to your item. You don’t want to burn the image. Be sure to keep checking as you are ironing.

As you pull up the wax paper your image no longer lifts and it is now complete.

You are ready to enjoy your personalized item!

Here’s mine!

Easy peasy right! I love love the way it turned out.  Be sure to check more from Papercakes  Try it. I would love to see what you make!

#ONELITTLEWORD with Ali Edwards

Hey friends! Day 9 into the new year! How y'all feeling!? 
Are we still digging the new year new you vibe?! I hope so! 
As you read in my last post I joined Ali Edwards One Little Word, and well I'm 
beyond excited to start this journey!  I am still so excited to be starting fresh and trying to get back to basics.  I wanted to show you what I was up to yesterday... let's go!

I downloaded this 2017 freebie from Kellie and it fit perfect for my start.

I added the word I chose from New Year's Eve - BE!~

I printed out the class lesson and dove right in! 

Gathered a few of my go to supplies!

Here is my word - no going back!

I really enjoyed printing the cards on beautiful heavy presentation paper. Nothing like a good thick quality cardstock!  

I then printed out a few pictures of myself and some of my favorite items. 
I am actually hoping my great great grandkids will thumb through this in years to come and really get to know me! 

aaand that's it folks... I wanted to just tell you that this project seems really interesting!  

The best part of this class is I get to tell my own story! Thank you Ali Edwards for taking my money!
No just kidding - thank you for thinking of this concept!

Peace, love and pretty paper!
