I am back with another layout that I created using the May kit from My Creative Scrapbook. The kit features the pretty Vintage Bliss collection from Simple Stories. I LOVED this line!
This sweet girl is growing up too quickly. I can still remember when she was the only one and we would pal around at the park or outlet mall in Boise or countless other places. Times have gotten busier and we have three more kids now. She has become so smart, so beautiful, so talented and responsible. She is in third grade and today she gets to do her Living Museum project at school; she chose to talk about Katelyn Ohashi, and up-and-coming gymnast hoping for the next Summer Olympics.
I cut these flowers from one of the patterned papers. The kit came with some white ribbon that you see here; I decided to cut it and use it as part of the background.
I cut the word "smile" from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper, the "cute" was cut on my Cameo, and the other stickers are from the Vintage Bliss collection. This line is very easy to scrap and worked well to scrap pictures of my girls.
For one of my Bella Blvd assignments this month I got to create a layout featuring the colorful buttons in the Button Market collection. There are a lot of buttons of different sizes, shapes and colors that match the Bella collections perfectly.
Here is what I created:
I kept the background very simple (love the Freestyle Sophisticates paper for this) to keep the focus on the picture and the buttons. The circle background was cut on my Silhouette Cameo. I used buttons from just about every pack released to create a page with lots of color to go with the rainbow of colors on my Lily's dress.
Here are some close-ups:
I used Designer Tapes to bring some more color onto the page without it being too overwhelming. The chipboard alphas were from wedding-themed collections, I just used the letters that I needed. The "WE" is from "WEDDING".

I hope that y'all had a good weekend and that you got to celebrate a little. There were so many things going on- National Scrapbook Day, Star Wars Day, the derby, and gymnastics for us. The kids did their Spring Showcase and it was so fun to watch them do the things they've been working so hard to learn.
I have a new project up on the Lily Bee blog today; we are celebrating Moms this week. Here is the page I created and you can see some close-ups at the Lily Bee blog.
Have a great day ♥
p.s. Thank you to everyone who visited my blog this weekend and left comments. It is fun to come back and see that I had so many visitors!
To celebrate today American Crafts is having a blog hop ♥ where each of us will present a challenge and hope that you'll be inspired to create something new.
For my challenge today I wanted to scrap some pictures I'd had in my pile for a while so I pulled out these old ones of my girls from last summer. Sarah was thrilled to know that she could swim with the particular kind of cast they gave her after she broke her arm at gymnastics camp!
I created this page using lots of the new Yes Please line from Amy Tangerine. I added some yellow paint to the sun/cloud sticker and cut the kraft clouds from the Yes Please paper.
The circle grid is from some of the Yes Please stickers. I simply pulled the sticker "extra" and left the round stickers on the backing.
I then added lots of sentiment stickers, my journaling and raised my "today" title with foam adhesive.
My challenge to you: create a layout using at least 3 pictures that are at least 6 months old. Please share your creations with us on our Facebook page! We'd love to see what you create.
