Lily girl and the Noel Mignon February kit

Today I have my first project to share with you using the February kit from Noel Mignon, "Heart of Gold."

This week the design team has been sharing projects that show perfect pairings, meaning a color combination or product match-up that goes together so well.

For my layout I have paired pink, gold and hints of aqua blue. I think those colors go together so beautifully.

Have a great weekend and make sure to head over to the Noel Mignon blog for a closer look at my page and others from the "Heart of Gold" kit.

another Noel Mignon project

Today I have one more Noel Mignon project to share before I start creating with the February kit, Heart of Gold.

It is a pretty simple page but I added some dimension with clusters of little hearts adhered with dimensional foam. 

Have a great day!

layering with Noel Mignon

Good morning!

Today I have another Noel Mignon project to share with you.

This week we have focused on layering. I thought I'd try something fun with the tags in the kit and this is what I came up with. I also added other embellishments- some flat on the page, others layered to give variety to my page. 

Thanks for stopping by!

playing with stamps and mist for Noel Mignon

Good morning!

I have another layout to share using this month's Sweet Charlotte kit from Noel Mignon.

Our challenge for this week was to incorporate the stamps and spray mist included in our kit this month.

Since I love to use mist on projects this was a fun assignment for me.

I used the stamps as a border and to add the little aqua hearts. I used mist to "paint" the edges of my page, for a journaling spot and as I tend to do, for little droplets of ink on the page.

You can read more details about how I created this page by visiting the Noel Mignon blog.

my treasures

Some people have lots of money, a fancy house or car.

Some go on extravagant vacations, have expensive jewelry.

While I don't have what the world might consider "fancy" things I do have my family and that means the world to me.

Snowmageddon 2015

We had quite a snowstorm after Christmas last year.

While we don't tend to get very much snow at a time, this time we got almost a foot of snow and there were drifts 2, 3, and even 4+ feet tall. It was great fun for the kids.

The theme over at Noel Mignon this week is how to "beat the winter blues."

We were challenged to create a project showing how we beat the winter blues or focus on the color blue. I decided to do both.

Here is my page:

Noel Mignon Sweet Charlotte

Good morning!

Today I have my first layout to share that I created for Noel Mignon using this month's kit, Sweet Charlotte.

Yes, I am back designing for Noel Mignon and I am grateful for the forced opportunity to be creative. Things continue to be busy on the homefront and with me being on a team again I HAVE to make time to do something fun and creative for me. Having a cute kit to work with each month is bonus.

Anyway, here is my layout for this week. You can see more details about how I put this page together up on Noel Mignon blog today as well as a look at some ways that I try to keep my scrap space organized.

Have a fantastic rest of your weekend.

quick page share today

Sometimes when I sit down to scrap I don't give myself any restrictions like I have to do for assignments for a team project.

I grab from here and there and add whatever "floats my boat," so to speak.

That was the case on this layout.

I used some products that I've had sitting in my stash for far too long waiting for that "perfect" project.

I tucked stickers and rub-ons here and there and added some fun Heidi Swap word and star chipboard stickers. The yellow frame and scalloped border bits are October Afternoon. The little dots and flowers are Amy Tangerine. 

Come back tomorrow and I will have my first project as a returning Noel Mignon kit club team member. 

Have a great day!

back in the saddle again

I had a little bit of extra time the other day so I sat down on New Year's Eve with a blank sheet of white cardstock and just started adding things a little bit at a time.

Are you one of those scrappers who can just add and glue as you go?

That's me.

Others don't dare glue anything down until they have everything perfectly placed, even using a ruler to make sure everything is straight.

I simply don't have time for that so I glue as I go and hope it turns out okay :)

That day I got two pages done in about an hour and here is one of them:

This layout is to document something that I love about my husband. He takes each one out on a daddy-daughter date each month, or at least he tries to. They get to pick what they do, where they go, and they have such a great time. This page has some pictures that Matt and Lily took in a photo booth at the mall on their last date. 

I  have mixed papers from Elle's Studio, Simple Stories, Gossamer Blue with PL cards from Mambi, stickers from Crate and American Crafts Amy Tan.

As I said, I just keep adding to the page until I like the end result.

Have a great day and Happy New Year!

I have lots more but will stop there for now. 

Have a wonderful day!
