The Simple Life

Have you seen one of the newest collections from My Little Shoebox? It's called "The Simple Life!"

If you can't sleep...count sheep

The sheep are cardstock stickers, aren't they cute!
 I added some pop-dots to make a couple of them pop off the page a bit.

This is fun punch I was fortunate to receive. It's called funky heart shape! You see Fiskars hooked with with My Little Shoebox in August and the design team got to use Fiskars punches with our work. A HUGE thank you goes out to Fiskars for their generosity!

You'll also notice lots of doodling, journaling and outing of the chipboard letters on my pages. Sakura had donated pens us in the past and once again I want to thank them. They have so many pen options available! There's a really cool pen (that I used everyone on every layout) it's called Clear Stardust...it's a MUST HAVE PEN!


Love the tractor! It's a sticker, I cut some extra tires out to give it some dimension--if you look close you'll see that Clear Stardust Sakura Pen I mentioned before.

The red pattern paper was cut with one the cool Fiskars border punches...Those a must have tool. I have many-but don't we all?!?!!?

To make the lines really pop, I used the white Souffle 3-D Opaque Ink pens, I'm telling you, these are the best pens!

 More doodling with the pens right on top of the pattern paper to make certain areas pop a bit more.  If you could see this in real life each and every sheep is sparkly because I used the star dust pen!

and a Card

I used the Fiskars punches on this card...can you see where??? The punch is called threading water I used it on the top and bottom.

and without further ado...I give you The Simple Life....

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day.

Summer Breeze by My Little Shoebox

For my September My Little Shoebox creations I worked the the Summer Breeze Collection. Don't you think the colors very soft and calming? I do! and I'm lovin' the stickers!

With the soft,calming colors, I right away thought of was baby. Plus everywhere I go lately there's tiny lil' babies! We have had so many lil' blessings born this summer and fall. I had a mini book of onesies on hand made by Creative Imaginations.

Here are a couple close-ups. I know not the best pictures it was raining and raining and raining and then we got flooded-anyway long story...back to the project...

I used the chipboard letters and applied stickles over the top to make them shiney!

I know I posted this last week, but this was my other project using the Summer Breeze Collection. I just love the birdie stickers!

If you view the My Little Shoebox blog today, you can see my August work using the Simple Life (aka: the sheep and barn line). Along with Fiskars punches...(more on the later!) Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Another School Layout

Woo-hooo! 2 layouts in the same day. This is using that same Crate Paper kit as before and having fun with it!

First Day of School
(and these are really the actual photos from the first day)

A school layout!


My 3 children started school this week (such a happy time for mom!) I figured since the house was silent this morning I'd break out a recent kit from Scraptastic Club. This is is full of the new Crate Paper School Spirit line! I love the colors and fun elements. Oh and the paper, love the paper!

I had so many pictures from the first day of school I couldn't decided (ok actually, these photos are not even from the actual first day, the are from the day before school started when we meet the teacher and take our supplies in.) So really I still have the "official" first day of school pictures to scrap too...which is next. But, first I'd like to share...

Kaden's First Day of School
(he's my first graders)

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm going to enjoy the rest of my day!
