Let's be Mermaids

Ok, I know I sound like I am harping but seriously - here is another example of all the great things you can create with one entire KIT - this Kit is by Echo Park and is called Let's be Mermaids! Because who doesn't secretly want to become a mermaid? ME!!!

Sorry the photos are a bit out of order but this set of cards was made using all the cut scraps and left over stickers from the kit. Seriously just pieces of paper and left over stickers or die cuts from the kit - this photo should be last in the order

I usually always start with mini albums (paper bag albums to be precise)
so here is my first album - I absolutely love the cute little mermaid on the front...cuteness

Here is the second album I made using the same paper from the kit.

I also had extra journaling and die cut cards left so I made this cute "Project Life" inspired Mermaid themed double sided layout...


Because afterall it could be filled with all the wonderful summer swim photos we take of our kids in the pool or at the beach or perhaps playing dress-up!

I also made 1 double-sided layout and 1 single sided layout - which I will share later - I have been having trouble loading my photos so I am looking around for those 2 photos and will share them as soon as they are down loaded ---

Anyway, again see my logic when buying kits...and in case you are wondering I get all my kits from these three online shops


Happy Crafting

I know I have said it before but I totally feel whole heartedly that if you find an entire kit of one line of paper and embellishments not only does it make the whole process of making your albums and scrapbook layouts but its cheaper too.

I wanted to show you what I got in the Doodlebug designs Patriotic kit I bought from and later share ALL the things I made using those pieces.

All this was included in the kit...

6 sheets of double sided paper plus 3 sheets of textured papers

Stickers, brads and journaling cards

rub-ons and puffy 3-d stickers

ribbon and some chipboard alphabets

all coordinating products

here's a video of all the goodness included in the kit.

Be back to share all that I made with all this awesomeness...

the 4th

I wanted to share my newest album which I made just in time for the 4th of July photos that you are currently printing (wink & smile)

I used the paper kit from Doodle Bug Designs and just fell in love with all the papers & matching embellishments.

Cute and cheery right?

I mean really aren't these pages just screaming America?

Love that there are the traditional red, white & blue and then a little bit of my favorite TURQUOISE thrown in!

Perfect color combination.

I have something new to share and hopefully I'll post it tomorrow or friday at the latest.

Come back and see me.

Happy Crafting
