MDS Blog Hop: Another Color Combination

Today's challenge was to create a project using the Stampin' Up! colors Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy, Going Grey, and Whisper White. I just realized that I already scrapbooked this picture on this layout, but I wanted a picture to go with her fifteen-month write-up. We used to call her Wooster because of an iPhone app she used to play that had a rooster on it (the little girl who read the word rooster couldn't pronounce her R's). Plus, her hair sticking up like this makes her look just like a rooster. Sometimes I have a ton of journaling to include on a page, so this layout has a good design (which I stole) for that. I created my layout this week while I was in History class listening to a lecture on Reconstruction. I seem to even listen better when I have something to create. I like this getting two things done at once thing, I might have to keep it up.

Purchase the digital supplies you need to make this project!

MDS Blog Hop: Catalog CASE

CASE= Copy And Share Everything. Our challenge this week was to CASE something from a Stampin' Up! catalog. I copied a scrapbook page from pg. 21 of the Occasions Mini Catalog (you can order from it until April 30). These are pictures from a Burlesque party we hosted last year. I love these girls! We all got dressed up and had so much fun. I wanted my page to have a fancy, vintage feel so the Timeless Portrait suite was great for that. I love that the pearls mimic the pearl necklace Amanda is wearing. There are so many options in My Digital Studio.

Purchase the digital supplies you need to make this project!
Here's the paper layout it's based on:

See other ways our designers were inspired by catalogs!

MDS Blog Hop: Green

Last year Esper started crawling officially on St. Patrick's Day. So of course we had to take these cute photos of her. I can't believe how different she is a year later. Where did my little baby go??

Supplies used:

Enjoy the hop today. Maybe you'll find a pot of gold at the end!

Walk in the Park II Digital Kit

I absolutely love this new kit that came out last week, so I had to scrapbook my Valentine's Day pictures using it. (I especially love the hand-written looking titles included in it.) I set up my camera for some self-timer shots that day. Even though some of the pictures aren't completely in focus, these pictures are some of my favorites because they show the relationship Esper and I have. We have so much fun together. Make sure you check back on Friday for our blog hop- the theme will be all things green in honor of St. Patrick's Day.
