Gossamer Blue... How I Love Thee!

I decided that when we moved, I was going to cancel my subscription to Studio Calico. I had decided that it just wasn't for me. I still wanted to play with lovely new items though, and a few of my good scrappy friends were getting these great kits from Gossamer Blue. I convinced T to let me use my budget each month on the gorgeous GB kits. As you may remember, I got to play with one right after I had signed up with SC. And I LOVED it.

Not only did I get the December Kit (which is AMAZING!), because I signed up in November, I received the November Add-On kit. I cannot wait to find the perfect photo for that map paper. And to play with some of those Polish Soda papers... SWOON!

Here is my first subber layout. I really loved this photo of my little bunny. I cannot believe how fantastic the photo works against the Crate Paper floral pattern. I also used my Silhouette to cut out a doily frame and title. I also used one of the doilies and a Sn@p! sticker.
This lovely layout uses one of my cute iPhone pics of Miss I during her ballet class. She is learning how to skip, hop, freeze, twirl, as well as the basic ballet positions. She's also learning how to listen and behave herself in class. Huge lessons!! For this layout, I used the back of one of the Sn@p! cardstock sheets, with a couple stickers, some Crate Paper, and a Silhouette cut title. I also grabbed a tag and a Basic Grey chipboard piece from my stash. Also, I used October Afternoon mists. Simple, but I love it!

From the gorgeousness that was December's kit, I cannot wait to see what Lori has in store for next month!!

PS. There was a mixup in shipping, and I have to say that Lori has amazing customer service. If you were on the fence before... Don't be. I'm super impressed! Pin It

I was going to blog today of my creative endeavors. In light of today's national news, I'm going to spend this weekend with friends and family. I will bask in their love and adore them. I will return next week, strengthened by each of them.

Hold your babies close. Hold your loved one close. Pray for Connecticut.

Anyone Find My Mojo?

I'm having a little bit of creative frustration. I have a multitude of projects that just need to be completed... And no "mojo" in which to do so. Not a good time in which to have this happen. I think a checklist is in order. I need to start crossing off some items.
How do you get out of a creative rut? Pin It

Just a Couple of Layouts :)

If you've been reading my blog, you know that I love making my own kits from my personal stash. I did again for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I took this kit and created this:

Here is the first layout I made from this kit. I just loved using my stash of Sassafras papers. I can't just let them sit where they cannot be seen anymore... Plus, I got to use some of my lovely HeyDay papers!! And a super cute Hipstamatic pic of my lovely Miss R. If you cannot tell... She doesn't sleep much.
And this lovely and bright layout with an older pic (one of my favorites!) of Miss I. This is just the most perfect visual for her personality. I loved all of the washi and layers.
 Thanks for looking! I will upload the last of my month of Gratitude. Pin It
