Bits and Pieces

Good Morning!

Nothing to crazy on the blog today…some paper bags and bits and pieces of embellishments. I hope you won’t be to annoyed…buuuut I used my Crate Paper chipboard pieces…AGAIN! I picked up LOTS of new stickers, chipboard and die cuts from Love is in the Details yesterday though, so do not fear, new products being featured next week! Including new LIITD laser cut chipboard pieces!


I get to see some childhood friends soon, that I haven’t see in forever! Soo, I thought it’d be fun to put together little gifts for each of them!


All the chipboard is from Crate Paper with some random washi tape pieces and scraps of paper. The black and white paper is actually wrapping paper I had left over from Christmas!


The little flowers are from Prima. These are definite must haves! They’re so easy to use in nearly any project.



I picked up some flowers from a local florist, Bloom Petals and Gifts, and spice mixes (also some fancy hot chocolate and cider blends, not pictured) from Gingerwood Lane, a local tea house.


Can’t wait to give these to my beautiful people!

Also…super excited to dig into all my treasures from Love is in the Details!

See you next time!!!

A Work in Progress…

Hola, everyone!

I’m back from Mexico with no sunny projects…yet..but I can’t wait to finish my colourful album from the last post, with our vacation photos!

Today though, I have a different kind of scrapped-up book. I’m thinking it’ll turn into a little cook book with sections for recipes, meal planning, and folders for some coupons and kitchen humour.


I called this post “Work in Progress” as the plan for this little book is pretty big and I can’t wait to get it done and show it to you! For now though, only the ‘Home Full of Joy’ is totally completed.

For this project, I loved using the “Welcome Home” line from Carta Bella. Something I’m learning (took me long enough!) is: buy as much as you can from a line! It makes everything so much easier and is also a lot of fun!

I made a few tags with some funny (maybe lame..) food related sayings, that fit perfectly into the folder above, which is also the first page.


I thought the silly tags might be a cute way to start a recipe book :)

I also love how the chipboard in the “Welcome Home” line, layers perfectly with the die cuts! The clip chipboard piece (below) is actually on top of a slightly smaller clip print on the die cut. It’s so easy to add varying dimensions this way.


Thanks for taking the time to visit! Before you go though, here is a little sneak peek of another part of the recipe book…for next time ;)


Thanks again! Have a great week!
