Spice Market Memories

   Basic Grey's Spice Market I want it all bundle is perfect for the most precious memories, like this photo that I scrapped  of my Aunt and Grandma, taken a month before my Grandma's death.

   I started this design by playing with some triangles, which then turned into a heart. To give it a more quilted look, I  machine stitched the pieces around the edges after inking them with Distress Ink (black soot). I used an exacto knife to cut the flower on the right so it could lie over the heart, instead of hiding behind it. The mini alpha stickers that come in the bundle were just the right size for my long title. Of course I had to use my Grandma's buttons on here, which I was lucky enough to inherit.

Make sure to get your bundle from FotoBella for your most precious memories!!

Bo Bunny Our Lil Monster Double Page layout

Hello Jessica here with you today.  This month I am using the Bo Bunny Our Lil' Monster I want it all bundle. I created a double page layout with pictures from when my oldest daughter was 2 years old.  The pictures were a little bit of a sequence of her climbing the rock wall for the first time by herself without any help for dad or mom all while holding a phone.

I loved the idea of using all the trees and clouds for this layout since it was outside.  They are all over-sized so the work well on a double page layout.  I also knew I didn't want to just line the photos up on the page so I tried to stagger them a bit sort of like the rock wall.  I then went through all the embellishments and found a couple more of them that had the same tree theme to add to the layout.

Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica

Modern Miss Gift Wrap

If you have followed my projects, you might see that I love gift-giving. And I love to make fun, custom gift packaging.

This adorable Modern Miss I Want It All Bundle by Bo Bunny was just perfect for a cute girly gift box.
I used the Gift Box Punch by We R Memory Keepers to make the box. However, doing things a little different, I turned the box on its side and tore off one of the flaps. So it had a sort of, back to the box and I was able to leave it open and puff the tissue paper up. I decorated the front with a silhouette sticker, jewels and some chipboard stickers.

A fun layout with My Mind's Eye Now and Then

Welcome to the blog today!  It's Apryl inviting you to checkout my newest favorite My Mind's Eye Collection, Now and Then Mildred.  This FotoBella bundle is full of such beautiful eye candy.  All of which it seems found its way into this layout!

I just had to use the fun enamel shapes-hearts & brackets.

This turned out to be such a fun layout and all the phrases capture my little girl's personality.  I love the photo.  The sun just happened to be peeking through the trees making look like she was holding it in her hand!

I've got an assortment of the Mixed Bag pieces here.  Lots of fun treasures found in there!

Say Cheese Double Page Layout

Nothing makes a photographer happier then a baby who LOVES to pose for the camera! ... except when that baby is her nephew!
Yes, my nephew loves the camera. Ever since he was born he would smile, make faces and just keep his face in the camera as long as I had it aimed at him. The only thing that would make these photos better is actually knowing exactly what he was thinking!

I decided to get creative and test myself with this Modern Miss I Want It All Bundle by Bo Bunny. This bundle is full of fun, girly, sparkly papers and embellishments. I wanted to see if I could create a double page layout for my nephew.
How do you think I did?
