July Sketch | Scrapbook Circle

Looking for something fun to get your crafty weekend started? There is a new sketch challenge at Scrapbook Circle today. If you play along and share your page with us, you could be our random winner and get a $10 credit to the SC shop. 

Here is the page I made using the sketch.

If you don't know me through Instagram or Facebook you might not have seen the new pup in town — Mack. We call him Macaroni too often and he is such a great puppy.

I used the SC July Kit: You Are My Favorite and the Add On: Let's Do It Again to make my page. 

I hope you'll have a chance to play along with us this month! Thanks for visiting here today to see my layout.

Yes! | Scrapbook Circle

Hello! Just dropping by today to share another layout I made using Scrapbook Circle's June Kit: Have a Little Fun Today. I also have the List Keeper add-on kit this month on this page. 

This kit definitely has a travel-feel to it, but I also think it goes well with adventure themes in general. So many of the things we document for our kids are their adventures. They "take flight" in so many other ways besides for an actual airplane or road trip.

I wanted to use this kit to show the boy's current milestones and challenges. For my boy right now, it's learning to skateboard. This is his moment — his adventure. 

Don't let the themes in your kit clubs or on your papers deter you from using the products. Airplanes can mean so much else. Life is an adventure — it's time to spread your wings and try something new.

Thanks for visiting here today to see my layout!

Don't forget to stop by this past Monday's post for the Cut Shoppe/Scrapbook Circle hop.

Cut Shoppe Hop | Scrapbook Circle

Scrapbook Circle is hopping along with Cut Shoppe this week! We will be sharing great ways to use the Cut Shoppe unique and fun files along with your Scrapbook Circle kits. 

You should have come to me from Jamie's blog. If you aren't hopping along yet, you can start at the beginning on the Scrapbook Circle blog

For my page, I used the Say What cut file from Cut Shoppe and the June Kit: Have a Little Fun Today.

I used a black Silhouette sketch pen and my Cameo along with the cut file to create a doodle-like background page. I liked how the black and white doodles make the photo and papers really stand out in the center of the layout.

Your next stop on the hop is Tessa. Make sure to stop at all of the blogs on the hop for chances at prizes and of course for the inspiration. 

Then Cut Shoppe is also offering a 30% off special for those of you hopping along. Swing by the shop and pick up a few files for yourself.  

Thanks for hopping along this week!

June sketch challenge | Scrapbook Circle

Time for a new sketch challenge for Scrapbook Circle! You can see the details about playing along on the Scrapbook Circle blog, as well as pages from some of the other gals on the creative team.

Here is the page I made using the June Kit: Have a Little Fun Today. I also have the List Keeper add-on kit this month on this page. 

For some unexplainable reason, the boy took an interest in skateboarding. He is really bad on his roller blades. Seriously … really bad! Of course, I was hesitant to let him try, but he is athletic in so many other ways that I hoped he'd be able to handle it. And he did!

This kid is a natural! Earlier this week I went for a 1.5 mile run and he skated beside me the whole time without falling or going off the road. 

This month's kit at Scrapbook Circle made it so easy to document this moment. I love the bright colors, the word-pattern papers and the stars. I always gravitate to stars for the boy's pages. 

The Amy Tan Grace foam letters are perfect for this page, too!

Thanks for stopping here to see my layout. Scoot on over to the SC blog to play along with the sketch this month.

Sketch Challenge | Scrapbook Circle

Earlier this month, I posted this new sketch to the Scrapbook Circle blog. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, you still have a few more days to play along. There is a fun prize from Authentique for this month. 

I'm a little late to the reveal party, but it is the start of baseball season for my family and we have been quite busy getting ready.

We kicked off the year with an out-of-state tournament in March. The boys did amazing and finished in second place. Not too shabby! They did well, and now have an indoor winter tournament under their belts.

I love the gold accents that are in the April kit. I added some extra gold splatters in the background to help bring in the overall gold design. 

I hope you have a chance to play along — you have until end of day on Wednesday and the winner will be announced on Friday.

Scrapbook Circle | Paper Issues Challenge

Scrapbook Circle has partnered up with Paper Issues for the latest Issue challenge at PI. You can win the March kit from Scrapbook Circle by playing along with the following prompt: Prints Charming's Beautiful Papers.

I played along using my April kit from Scrapbook Circle, which is chock full of amazing pattern papers. And of course, I included my little prince in the layout. 

In case the title of my page is throwing you off (lol), we decorated our Easter eggs this year to look like Minions. They took a little bit to dry between colors and then dry again to be able to put the googly eyes on. The boy was doing his math packet that was assigned for his spring break, so he kept taking turns between doing a problem and drawing the Minion faces on the eggs. 

If you have a chance, link up over on Paper Issues to play along and have a chance to win the kit from Scrapbook Circle.

What's New Wednesday | Bella Blvd

This is where the big, wet tears start to fall on my screen. This is my last project for the Bella Blvd team. I loved being a part of such a wonderful and amazing group. I'm looking forward to just sitting back and taking in all of the eye candy that the next team will be bringing us. 

I used a lot of Color Chaos for this layout. The Invisibles and pattern papers in this collection are just amazing. I have to admit that I was trying to save all of the scraps that I could. I kept saying to myself that every little piece can be useful — and for this collection that is so true.

I also used the Enamel DooDads and Dots on this page. I put them everywhere I could think to put them, including in the sticker lettering. 

Supplies: Color Chaos (Invisibles: Referee Invisibles), (Pattern paper: Bell Pepper Strandz, Color Chaos Daily Details, Words of Wisdom), Treasures & Text, Trinkets. Enamel DooDads: Ice. Enamel Dots: Mike White

Thanks for stopping by to see my last Bella Blvd project.
