Christmas Layout

Hello Everyone! Hope you all are enjoying this Christmas season. This is my post for the Patches of Pink December Design Team post. Our theme for December is of course to create a Christmas project. This is probably the easiest scrapbook layout I think I have EVER done. I love the patterned christmas paper so I did not want to add to much to this. It is very simple. I am usually a traditional red, green & silver christmas girl but I love the nontraditional colors in this one.

There is not much to this layout so I really do not have sizes for anything. The photo mats will fit a 4x6 picture and the Merry Christmas is cut using the Cricut Craft Room & my Cricut Classic Font Cartridge. This is the first time I have used the Cricut Craft Room and I loved it, I was able to weld the letters together instead of cutting individual letters. I LOVE that feature. The patterned paper is by Paper Studio and the plain cardstock is just stuff I had on hand that matched. Its hard to see in the picture but there are also little rhinestones placed in the middle of snowflakes on the page, adds a little bling to the page.

Please stop on by the Patches of Pink blog and see what the other design team members have created. Also don't forget, we would love to see what new christmas projects you have made. Link them up here. We can't wait to see what you have come up with.

As Always Thank You All So Much For Stopping By!

Pinteresting News

Hello to all my amazing friends out in blog land! Hope you are having an amazing day so far. Things have been a little crazy around my house these past few months so I have not had a lot of crafty time. I have done a few little projects here and there but nothing like I was doing before I found out I was pregnant. I have decided to start something new here on my blog and I hope that you will all enjoy it. Have you checked out Pinterest? I have to admit that searching Pinterest has become somewhat of an obsession. Just what I need!!!!!  If you do not know what Pinterest is you must check it out here and see what all the fuss is about. I have found some really awesome creative inspiration and amazing blogs just by searching. I will warn you that it is addictive, sometimes I just can't stop searching. LOL! The inspiration is endless. You must give it a try. So... I am going to start a weekly post (hopefully weekly) about my favorite pins of the week. It may just be something cute that I have seen or it may be crafty or food related, who knows. I can't wait to share with you all the fun creative stuff I find. Happy Pinning!

I made this recipe last weekend and my husband and I LOVED it. It is so easy to get together and it tasted amazing. Its a must try recipe.

I thought these would make some really cute homemade gifts.

Adorable newborn photo that I would love to do with my son when he is born.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Pinning!

October PoP DT Halloween Post

Hello Everyone! Here is the October Design Team Post for Patches of Pink. This month we were asked to create a project with a Halloween theme. I have seen so many awesome Halloween projects out there in blogland these past few weeks. I just wish I had the time and money to do more creating. With our baby boy's due date getting closer and the holidays even closer I have not had much time to paper craft or tend to my blog. I have kept this card very simple but I really love how the colors look. Hope you enjoy!

Just You & Me

Hello all my crafty friends. Just wanted to share with you another cute fun layout I made last weekend. I had so much fun making this and the fall one I made. If you have not seen that one click here to read all about it. I plan to make more in the very near future, especially with a baby on the way I want to get a head start on the scrapbook for my little one. I did this out of pure fun so I do not have sizes of anything but I will tell you that the tree, hearts and phrase all came from the Sweethearts cartridge and the paper is by Echo Park Paper. I really love how simple this turned out. Enjoy!

As always thank you all so much for stopping by!!!!

Patches of Pink Thurday Link-Up-Fall

Well it's time for another Thursday Link-Up over at Patches of Pink  featuring projects made by the design team. The weather where I live has finally decided to cool down and we are enjoying very fall like temperatures this week. I am so ready for fall, it was a little to warm and humid for me this summer. We could not enjoy doing anything outside so we have been cooped up inside for what seems like months. I am hoping that those awful hot temps are gone because we are enjoying the cool breeze coming in and having the windows open. Well, the project theme for the Patches of Pink DT was to create a project with a fall theme using all those beautiful fall colors. I think that this may be one of my all time favorite projects I have made. I was not sure on what I was going to do at first especially using those fall colors because they are just not colors that I usually use but I had a lot of fun making this layout. Yes, I just said LAYOUT. I do not think that I have featured a layout on my blog in a VERY long time. I LOVE this layout and I can't wait to make more. I have been so into making the cards that I have completely forgotten layouts. You will probably be seeing more layouts from me very soon.

I apologize for the awful picture but I do not have a great camera and I am by no means a professional photographer. Its really hard to see the stitching done on all around the outer edge and on the tree.

A Little Someone New

Hello Everyone! Just thought I would take a few minutes and share a really cute easy baby card I made last weekend for a baby shower. I think that this is my new favorite card size, 4x4. I just love it! Perfect & Simple. This card got lots of comments and the new mom wanted to know where I got a card like that. I love how these colors look together, they came together great. I think I have used this color combo before but I really like it.

I was going to use one my baby stamps by Scrappy Mom's Stamps on the outside as well but decided I liked it just how it is. I LOVE these stamps! Baby buggy cut from Simply charmed!

Thursday Link-Up

Hello and Welcome to another Thursday Link-Up featuring projects made by the Patches of Pink DT. Did you know that August is Happiness Awareness Month? I had no idea until Jalisa over at Patches of Pink gave us our project theme for the PoP Design Team Post. The theme for this month is to make any project that represents something that makes us HAPPY:) I am so glad that I was able to get out of bed and into my craft room to create this project. I immediately knew what my project would be. As some of you may already know I am pregnant with my first and extremely excited, especially since our road to pregnancy has been long. My pregnancy is something that makes me very Happy! I got this idea from a picture frame I saw in a store about a month ago. I absolutely LOVED the quote that was on the frame and knew I had to use it in a project of my own. The frame at the store had a very similar theme to the project I have created but it was very plain so this is my take on it. Since we do not know the sex of the baby yet I kept this pretty neutral in color but am very HAPPY with how it turned out.

If the quote is hard to read, this is what it says...

Mommy loves you little one, Daddy loves you too.
And soon, oh so very soon
we will be holding You!
