Welcome

Moving to Colorado has been quite a change for me. I am having a hard time adjusting to living in the high dessert, but the beauty that surrounds me seems to calm me. I love driving to the mountains seeing the land change. Since I live 60+ miles from a town large enough to have my crafting supplies I am challenging myself to use what I have and see what I can make. I am really starting to work with digital images and mixing it with the layered paper I love. Hope you will enjoy my blog and leave a comment. Thank you!

I'm Nuts For You!

Happy Monday everyone.  I scrapbooked some pictures of my favorite 3 year old. The file is I'm Nuts For You! and I'm Nuts For You Squirrel. I made the titles under pictures by welding my text to a small rectangle right in the DE software. The little signature was scanned from a picture she gave me. I wanted to document her signature for later on. Simple layout but I like how it turned out.

You are the Peanut Butter to My Jelly PPbN Designs


Decided to give you a second project today. For this one page layout I used just 2 sheets of white paper printed on my Epson wf-7520. The page on the left was a print and cut for the embellishments and mats the one on the right for the background paper. I placed everything I wanted printed on the page as I wanted it to be seen, changed colors where needed and added the banner shapes, title and border on top of the digital paper. The digital paper I bought from Jessica Sprague and it is from the Italian Soda Shoppe collection from www.carinagardner.com. Hope you enjoyed the layout.

Jasmine Birthday card with pop out book base


Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I found this card base and I knew I wanted to make a card out of it. The ppbn files worked great for my princess birthday card. I first put the card together so I had an idea how large I could make my paper piecings.

 Next I cut out the figures I wanted, I glittered the castle tops and generated the Make a wish in my DE software. The genie is on a wobble so he moves.
Members Exclusive file Dessert Princess with the Lori Whitlock file called 2a pop out book card. Put it all together and this is my card. To become a member of PPbN Designs.

Smores tic tac toe game from PPbN

Smores tic tac toe game is such a fun file. I made this one for my grand daughter since she had a rough weekend. Hope she love it. I sized it down pretty small so the mouths didn't cut as good as they should but I wanted it to fit in an envelope.

Sisters Frozen Layout

My beautiful grand-daughters had to have their hair braided to go with their shirts. Claire one braid and Julia two braids. As soon as I saw the Anna and Elsa files I knew I would have to make them, so detailed and cute, I love them. The files I used were Snow Queen 2Frozen Princess 2Sisters Title with a font off my computer for the names. I had a little trouble with the eyes on Anna but by the time I got to Elsa I had figured them out. I was trying to make it too hard instead of just following the direction.

Fun in the Sun

I have a whole new batch of pictures to scrap after being on vacation for 6 weeks but I have been having trouble finding the ambition to scrapbook. Nikki's new files have my head swimming with lots of ideas just need to set my mind to it and start cutting. This weeks blog layout is one of my grand daughter Claire at the beach. She learned to boogie board during this visit so I know she will be happy to get these pages. The files I used are Fun in the Suncute crab, and for the sand bucket cute beach ball, sand castle and sand pail set. For the background paper I experimented with digital papers from Designs by dani that I purchase on Jessica Sprague's one buck wednesday.  I used the shapes from ppbn file placed them on the page in design studio and dropped the pattern paper files onto the shapes, then I printed the papers with my Epson WF-7520 wide format printer. I got the idea for the picture on page one from pinterest. The sun has a cute little Peachy Keen face. Hope you all are having a great summer I know I am.

Pocket page The Sky is the Limit

I really wanted to try a pocket page using PPbN files so this is what I cam up with. I is pretty simple but I think I like it that way. the file is The Sky is the Limit. I just shrunk the title way down but it still cut just fine.

Boys and Their Toys file from PPbN



This layout will be perfect for my grandson. I will be visiting him some this summer so I can get the perfect shots to go with this. I used paper from K & Company, chalk inks from Quick Quotes, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and the files from PPbN Designs. The file was Boys and their Toys but I just used the title and the toys. I did make a black layer because my toys were not showing up on my border. I did this by putting the pieces of the file together on the DE mat and then I did a .100 offset. Hope you enjoy my layout and your day. Thank you for visiting my blog. Below is the link for the PPbN Memberhip where Nikki is giving away a new ipad to one of the members.

You're A Hoot PPbN Designs file

Hello everyone! I decided to show you how I plan a layout and sometimes decide to change things. I always take a picture before I glue down my pieces to see if I like how I have things laid out.
 I decided I needed a moon behind the owl so I went into my Silhouette Design Studio and I just made a circle and pulled it off the page a little bit and cut.

 I put pop dots behind the owl and some of the flowers to give  added dimension to my page.
 I added some accents to my words and some of the flowers to make them pop a little.

You can find the file You're a Hoot here

Materials used:
You're a Hoot file
2 base papers
2 pinks
3 browns
2 yellow/orange
1 turquoise
3 greens
Scotch tape runner
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive
pop dots 
White Signo pen

Zoo layout

Our zoo is on a mountain side and the view is so gorgeous but today I am only going to show you the giraffe enclosure. This is so different because we fed the giraffes lettuce and you could pet them, take your picture with them and even have them lick you. For this layout I used the Through Thick and thin file. I inked my edges with powder puff chalking ink.
 For the eyes I used a uni ball Signo white pen for the white areas, the blue accent is a colored pencil. For the lashes I used a black colored pencil to draw a black line around part of the eye and smudged it with a paper nib and odorless mineral spirits (both can be found at Michael's) and the the lashes are drawn on with a .05 black marker.( I use Prismcolor brand).

 This title was made using fonts from my computer and a mountain from the Silhouette store.
