Pop Quiz School Layout

    Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I want it all bundle couldn't be more perfect for all of your school projects, from kindergarten through college! It can be fun and young, with cute embellishments, but also more sophisticated and older depending on your needs.  For this page I wanted to capture my son's younger elementary days using an old Page Maps sketch from December 2006.

I started with the chalkboard paper, which I inked with a little white ink to look like chalk. I stamped the date on the tag, where I stuck my favorite photo of him from that day, and added the ribbons that come in the ephemera package. Of course I had to add a little stitching, which I did with my sewing machine using a zig zag stitch in red and black. 

Under the tag I used the Washi Tape along the bottom photo. I finished it off with the buttons and all of the the Chipboard  pieces (ruler, pencil, paperclip, and 2nd grade), which can all be found @ FotoBella!

Bo Bunny Lil Monster Card

Hello Jessica here with you today to share a quick card I did using the  Bo Bunny Lil' Monster bundle.  I found this card over the weekend when I was attempting to clean up my scrap area this weekend some.  I had forgotten created it a couple of weeks ago.  That's what happens when your scrap area is in desperate need of cleaning.

I really just loved those monsters, they are too cute.  I knew when I saw the line I would have to use as many as I could.  What is the other awesome thing about this layout you ask?  It is made completely of leftovers from my other layouts.  Love when I can use up leftovers. Again, I took a couple of extra minutes to create an area on the inside of the card to write something.



Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica

MME Chalk Studio 2-Best Friends

Hello and Welcome.  I hope everyone is having a great day.  Today I am sharing a layout I created of my girls cuddle up on the bed together.  The were waiting on their dad to get home from work and I told them they could lay in bed quietly together and watch a little on the Ipad.  I came in to check on them I just had to snap a couple of pictures.  I love when they are quiet and loving like this.

I used the MME Chalk Studio 2 I want it all bundle to create this layout..  This is a really fun line to work with.  It as some great embellishments to work with.  I especially love the photo frames and tags!  I am addicted to doilies and I have to say they help soften up that black chalk paper a bit.  I am really loving the combination of the two.

Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica

Pop Quiz Report Card Holder

   Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I want it all bundle is so perfect for all of your academic needs!! I came up with a report card holder to hold all of my son's 6th grade report cards from this year. I can't believe in just a few months he'll be graduating from elementary school and going into middle school. But with this bundle I'll definitely be prepared, at least creatively.

      1. Cut the Study hall striped paper at 6.5" X 5". Use the Tim Holtz paper distresser around all of the edges.

2. Glue striped paper onto the red library paper and cut around the edges with a zig zag decorative scissor. Finish the edges with Distress Ink (black soot).

3. The black paper that comes in the ephemera package was just the right size for the back of the pocket. I just had to trim about an 1" and 1/2" from the end, and then used the paper distresser on all of the edges. Put aside until the next step.

4. Now get your striped piece and hand stitch a line 1/4" from the top, using black embroidery thread. Stitch another line 1" away from the first one. 

5. Before you do any more stitching, glue just the ends of the bottom and 2 sides onto the black distresssed paper, making sure to leave the top open for the pocket. Now you can stitch 1/4 " away on the bottom and sides.

6. Right under the second stitched line from the top I applied the ruler and pencil that comes in the layered chipboard. Under that I pulled some of the gingham ribbon, that also comes in the ephemera package, through the A+ button. The top progress report also comes in the layered chipboard, and I backed it with the hallpass paper, taking the same decorative scissors to the edges to make the zig zag border. Then I added my son's name with a red Sharpie. The final step is to add those report cards to the pocket.

Thanks for your visit, and make sure to visit FotoBella for all of your scapbooking needs!

Family Blooms with My Mind's Eye

The feeling of Spring in the air is all around my scrap room thanks to My Mind's Eye Now & Then FotoBella Bundle!  I found some great gardening photos to pair with the collection.  


The colors of this collections are really soft & pretty and pair perfectly with my photos.  

One of my favorites is the floral paper, which I fussy cut the flowers out of for embellishing.  

And those cute chipboard banners I just love also.  I incorporated the banners with phrases to create a caption for the layout, "Love Saturday Fun."  

Ooh and that gold stripe washi tape is fabulous! Can't wait to add this layout to my album.
