december scrap again layouts

for my layouts for scrap again this month, i did some christmas themed layouts. i am a terrible holiday scrapper, but i went for it & did a couple of super simple layouts. if you haven't signed up for the january crop, now is the time! i can't wait to go & get my scrap on. we always have such a good time.
incase you haven't noticed... i currently have an obsession with these letter stickers from basic grey... i really wish they would make lots & lots of colors in this font!

crate paper projects

today, i thought i would share the projects i made for the crate paper blog post last week.  warning: SUPER photo heavy post ahead!  i LOVE crate paper.  they have long been a favorite.  i, honestly, had to stop myself from making more & more!  didn't want to overwhelm everyone!  lol. 
i had so much fun making this little album.  i thought it would be a fun way to document what was on the kiddos' wish list for christmas this year! 

i made this little card in a flash using the random chipboard pieces and the 6x6 paper pad 
i love this layout.  i used the random collection.  that herringbone/ chevron (not sure which it is) print is seriously a FAVORITE of mine!  LOVE it!  but, i felt like it was too busy; so, i cut it & separated it and added a little stitch down the side.   

 i made this layout about the christmas tree farm where we cut our tree.  we do LOVE that place.  i love the instagram pics i took there too.  those square photos make great grid layouts!  ;)

this last layout uses the random collection again.  that cutie patootie belongs to a friend of mine.  i take her photos from time to time.  she makes for great scrapbooking material.  hee hee.  :)

if you made it this far, CONGRATULATIONS!  and thanks for reading!  lol.  hope you all have a fantastic weekend before christmas.  (psst.... how did that get here already????)

christmas traditions with pebbles

this week is christmas traditions week at pebbles.  i made this layout about measuring the kids at the christmas tree farm we go to each year.  it's so fun to see how much they have grown each year.  (and makes me a little sniffly that is going by so fast!)
                                            hmmm... this photo looks a bit wonky.  but it is straight!  lol!  i promise.

a pinterest challenge and a little giveway! :)

a few days ago,  my friend diane asked if i would join her and kimberly neddo, sasha farina and emily pitts in  a just-for-fun little pinterest inspiration challenge.  sounded like fun; so i said, "yes!"  kimberly found this image on pinterest.  the challenge is to use it as an inspiration.
before i show you my projects, let me link you up to the other girls.
onto what i did.  :)  i made a layout and a card.  both using CHAP from american crafts.  man!  i love that line.  fantastic!  i used the inspiration pretty literally.  i hope you enjoy!  :)

okay.... for the really fun part.  i decided to do a little bitty giveaway to go along with it.  so.  simply leave a comment below to be entered to win.  want an extra chance to win?  create your own project based on the inspiration piece and leave me a comment below linking me to your creation!  i am giving away some american crafts "spice" delights, elle's studio halloween bits and some mixtape from american crafts' nightfall line.  all items i LOVE and all items i have multiples of.  why not share rather than hoard?!  :)  so get busy!  the time to enter the giveaway ends november 27 (giving you a little extra time since thanksgiving is right around the corner!)  internationals are welcome.  :)

Pebbles Mix & Match

what?!  2 days in a row of posts?!  i know, i know!  lol!  seems like it is pure insanity here lately.  i have hardly scrapped (project life & gratitude album aside.)  that & troy was out of town and i spent the majority of my evenings watching the past 2 seasons of true blood on my hbo to go app.  (eek!  it was a lot of eric & i was lovin' it!)  i was a woman obsessed. 
so...  this layout and card was posted on the pebbles blog yesterday.  i actually made it right after i received the "with love" line.  ( i am IN love with that line btw!  definately a must have!)  i mixed the fresh goods line with the with love line
a SUPER quick and easy card.  (also uses a little sliver of paper from welcome christmas)

this one mixes "wtih love" and "fresh goods."  and a little bitty tag from bananafish studios.  :)
