Scrapbook News & Review Sneak Peeks

The October issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine is being release this afternoon and I thought I'd share a couple of layouts as a sneak peek. Shhhh, just don't tell the bosses:)

This is a layout of my nephew's 8th birthday a few weeks ago. Somehow, not saying how 'cause I had absolutely nothing to do with it :), his face was planted directly in the middle of his cake.

Is this not the cutest layout? Her face is so precious! This layout is by staffer Irit Shalom.

And there is sooooo much more to see in the October issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine! Digital and traditional layouts, cards, mixed media items, articles galore. So head on over and take a look!

One Spooky Night

The munchkins are home with bags full of candy. And how cute are these guys? A pair of bumble bees, a Jedi knight, and a witch in training who thinks she's too old to dress up.

This is Emily with all her curls and ringlets.

Then there's chubby little Sheyla.

Then we have all four of the munchkins together.

And I'm loving this one with Sheyla sticking her tongue out.

Here's wishing everyone a spooktacular night!

Just a few more of my favorite items that were in the August issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

The first item to show is an altered home decor piece. Wouldn't this look amazing on display on a mantel or shelf? And super simple to create! Simply take two pieces of grungeboard, ink both pieces, and sew both the bottom left and right sides together. Be sure to leave to the top open so you can add items inside of the pocket. Next add lace, flowers, and ribbon for hanging. The bird was cut from a thin piece of metal and then embossed using an embossing stylus. Now just add desired ink color to the bird and attach to the heart. Simple.

Next is an arch shaped card. Such a simple card but I love the red.

Lastly a simple layered card. I purposely kept this one simple to let the cute stamped image shine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fairies, Fairies, and More Fairies

This was a set of items that was in the August issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. I LOVE how they turned out! Both of the fairy stamps are from QKD.

How cute is this! And perfect for a gift too. One of the best parts is that you can use a dry erase marker on middle pane of glass and can customize the note to fit the recipient.

This was made as a mini card and I just love the pops of red!

And this last card just shows off the fun and sexy side of the stamp.

Hope you've enjoyed your visit!

Savannah/Tybee Island/Pirate Festival

What a fun weekend! Pirates and wenches everywhere, live music all day and all night, and loads of other entertainment for the kids and adults. Then there was the dolphin tour and trip to the top of the Tybee Lighthouse with an amazing view. And don't forget the food at The Crab Shack and The Lady and Sons, YUM! And we ended the trip with a walk down River Street and a stop at The Candy Kitchen.

The vidoes are from the dolphin tour. They are such beautiful creatures and to watch them play and roam in their natural environment was amazing!

Cards on Parade

These are some of my favorite cards that were in the August issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

Isn't that deer the cutest thing? It's one of my finds from Sideshow Stamps.

And how could you not love bling? Anything with bling makes it to my faves list.

And let's not forget about my pirate kitty. Both the kitty and the compass stamps are QKD.

Thanks for stopping in!

ATCs and Inchies

These are some of my favorite items that were in the August issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

Totally love how this one turned out! The background turned out just how I wanted (which is rare) and the mermaid is just adorable (it's a QKD stamp if you're interested).

Isn't that fairy just the cutest? I got hooked on Sideshow Stamps and the fairy is one of my faves.

Inchies are a bit new for me. Such a small space to work with is a challenge. The butterflies and bling make this one of my faves.

Another set of inchies. The background on this set was fun. Just blend a few colors of alcohol inks and voila!

Thanks for looking!
