My Mind's Eye

I splurged and bought this new paper from My Mind's Eye and I LOVE it. I still have one more layout in mind. It is just so cute. All the paper is from the "Quite Contrary" line, the rub ons on the banner are American Crafts, and the "Tweet" I cut with my Gypsy, I think it is Jubilee. The "family" below is random AC stickers I had, and the "comedian" are these cool fabric thickers. Everything else is just paper. Simple.

St. Patty's, Little Monster, and Hi Bob Layout

Happy belated St. Patty's Day! I just got this layout done last week from LAST St. Patrick's Day. I love that Maxwell looks scared to be held by his sisters and have a big fat camera in his face!
I normally am not a one photo layout girl, but I liked how this turned out. I even sewed this one, another new thing for me. The paper is from the Little Yellow Bicycle "Lucky Me" line, and the little shamrocks are from the Paper Doll Dress up cartridge. The "happy" and "lucky" are American Crafts thickers, and the "go" is from the Calligraphy Collection cartridge.
The paper and stickers on this layout is from the Monstrosity line from Sassafrass and is appropriately named. So cute and fun to work with. I love the bright colors, and they match my photos perfectly. This title is all in American Crafts thickers... the "our" is actually paper I traced from a thicker so it was the right color.
This last layout I finished yesterday and I love how it turned out. Maxwell called his dad "bob" for a long time, and I wanted to record that memory. The paper is from the "Caprice" line from Close to my Heart, and the embellishment stickers are as well. The "Bob" I cut using the Old West Cricut cartridge, and the brackets I cut from the Opposites Attract cartridge. The green border towards the bottom I used a Fiskars punch for, but I don't remember what it is called.

My favorite layout EVER

This was a "throw together while talking on the phone" layout and it turned out perfectly. I love it. The photos are some of my favorite, and the paper just matches great.
The paper is from the Making Memories Mistletoe Collection, except for the printed paper I used to make the flowers. That is from the "Grace" collection from Close to my Heart. The title is done using American Crafts Thickers.
The flowers I copied from Dawn McVey. They are made from five scalloped circles I cut with my Cricut. Then I just wrinkled them up, stuck a brad through them and thought they were done... but decided they needed some color so I added the buttons. So cute.
I thought they may not fit in my page protector, but surprise, they smoosh down just right!

Lots of Layouts

I finally got around to photographing a few layouts... figure it isn't a bad thing in case of fire or something like that =). This one is from Scrapbook club. I modified it quite a bit, but loved how it turned out.
All the paper and stamps are from CTMH, and mostly the Twitterpated collection.
This one is for my "hubby and me" album. It is Valentine's Day this year. The paper is all from Pink Paislee (leftovers from another project), the border on the right side is a fiskars punch, the "love" letters are from the Storybook cartridge, and the heart was from the Jubilee cartridge. The button is Sassafrass.
Another scrapbook club layout I modified to fit my photos. It is using CTMH's Aspen collection. The snowflakes I cut from "When Its Cold Outside" cricut cartridge, the the "First Skate" letters are from American Crafts.
It is never too late to scrapbook Hannah's baby photos, right =)? Paper is from CTMH again, their Jingle collection I think. I love this snowflake paper. The thickers are American Crafts.
This was the year we had our car stolen from the movie theater. Fun memories =).
This layout uses really old All My Memories Paper. It may even be called "sisters" now that I am thinking about it. I hid the journaling behind a tab in the top right corner. The "dance" letters are American Crafts Thickers, and the "class" is Plantain Schoolbook from Cricut.
So girly!
Last one for tonight. This is Cosmo Cricket Paper, and the letters and ribbon are all from that company as well. The car I cut using my Cricut, but don't remember what cartridge I used. Such a cute baby boy!

Luck Letters and Hairbow

This is the only picture I have taken so far of these, but a friend and I made them a couple of weeks ago. I used the "Lucky Me" line from Little Yellow Bicycle and some wooden letters from the Wood Connection. The little shamrock is from there as well. I just mixed green paints together to get the color I wanted, then painted them. I modge podged the paper to the fronts, and just added the ribbon on the "L" for a little something extra.
I friend of mine had a baby girl a couple weeks ago and I found this darling dress at Gymboree. They didn't have any accessories in the right size, so I thought I would just make a hairbow really quick... I ended up spending a lot of time on it, but I learned a few new tricks and it turned out super cute!
Love the flower/ribbon combo bows... the flower covers up all the mechanics and makes it look so feminine. The ribbon is Bazzil Basics I got at Archivers, the flowers are Imaginisce (I think), and the button is just random. The tights I used for the headband are from Walmart.
