From Our Kitchen to Yours

August 15, 2018

There is something special about giving a thoughtful gift of baked goods.  It is like giving a piece of yourself.  Why not make that gift extra special by adding a creative container to hold those homebaked goodies?
It was easy by easing a vintage berry basket and ribbons and lace from Really Reasonable Ribbons.  
I wrapped the Sheer Iridescent Antique Gold Ribbon around the container, then tied a pretty bow, tucking a bow under the ribbon made out of the Antique Gold Burlap String.
I then added the Chloe Natural Crochet Lace around the top of the basket.
Then I tuck in a tag and filled up the container with some yummy homemade chocolate chip cookies.  It was so easy to create this cute container to give as a gift.  Looking forward to creating a few more to have on hand when a special gift is needed.

Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.

Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop

August 13, 2018

Hello ribbon lovers!   
I am joining the Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members for the August Blog Hop.   If you are ready for fall or love to add the rich fall colors into your creations, you are going to love the Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment this month! 
I used the beautiful orange ribbon and crocheted lace in the Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment.  Then  I added a bow with the Ivory Burlap String.
I then added the Earth Tone Chrysanthemums , tucked in Mulberry Leaves and vintage buttons.
I am so ready for autumn with it's cooler weather, pumpkin spice, flannel shirts and leaves crunching under foot.

Love You a Bushel Layout

July 30, 2018

One of my favorite things to do to a layout is add dimension, whether that is with layer pattern paper, using pop dots or with ribbons, lace and beautiful embellishments.  
I created this this cluster using the gorgeous ribbons and lace by Really Reasonable Ribbons.  I started on the bottom with the Chloe Natural Crochet Lace and added a bow with the Burlap Ivory String and  Sheer Iridescent Antique Gold Ribbon,  

I then tucked Mulberry Leaves, White and Cream Mixed Carnations and then topped it off with the White Magnolia Flower.

(Papers by 7 Gypsies and Burlap by Canvas Corp Brands)
Then I continued layer some vintage lace, buttons and burlap to complete the layout.

I hope this inspires you to add some beautiful dimension to your next layout.

Let God Use You Layout

July 16, 2018

One of the many things I like to add to our family albums is simple words of faith.  I have collected hymnals over the years and use them in a lot of my artwork.
For this layout I added some gorgeous ribbon and lace to add dimension and softness to this layout.
I used Sheer Iridescent Antique Gold Ribbon and paired it with the Burlap Natural String.  Then I added the Chloe Natural Crochet Lace and vintage cream buttons.  I then tucked a few of the Mulberry Leaves around the photo mat.

Little did I know when this photo was taken the journey our daughter has taken since her senior year.  I am a firm believer that  God uses ordinary people to carry out his extra ordinary plan.  

Love you Boo and so proud of you!

Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop

July 13, 2018

Hello ribbon lovers!   
I am joining the Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members for the July Blog Hop.  If you love using beautiful blues and yellows in your creations, you are sure to love the Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment this month! 
For my layout I combine the ribbons, Wild Orchid Magnolia  and Carnation flowers.  Tucking in some of the Mulberry Leaves, Natural Burlap String and the beautiful cream lace.
For my photo mat, I layered pattern papers, vintage papers and burlap.
I loved how this layout came together by adding dimension and softness with ribbon and lace.  I hope this inspires you to document your life.

Head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog for my creative inspiration.

That's Love Layout

June 29, 2018

Do you have some special memories that need to be documented?  It is so easy to create a layout to capture those moments.  
On this layout I not only created an abstract background, but I add softness with some gorgeous ribbons and jute by Really Reasonable Ribbons.  These pair beautifully with vintage embellishments and lace.   I used the Ivory Taffeta Ribbon and the Ivory Burlap String for the bow.

For the lace accent, that goes perfectly with the beautiful vintage piece from my Grandma, I used Danielle Lace.

I then added one of my favorite photos of our little guy... who now that he is grown I look up into his face.  But this is the face that I see even now that he is an adult.  Isn't it funny how time goes by so quickly, but one's child will still be their baby for a life time!

I hope this inspires you to capture those memories no matter how long ago they happened.  

Remember This Mini Album

June 22, 2018

Do you have memories that you would like to document and remember for years to come?  Take a peek at my newest mini album kit at Photographs and Memories.
This album is filled with vintage inspired images, beautiful papers and fun embellishments.
Filled with an extra pocket page to put additional photos and journaling.
These photo mats work great for IG photos or just cut down your regular photos to fit.  It's up to you on how to fill these pages with your memories.
There is even a fold out for additional hidden photos and/or journaling... all tie up with a bow.
Capture a special event, vacation or time within these album page.  
Or capture multiple memories and add your heartfelt journaling to tell your story.
This has masculine and feminine touches, so it can easily capture many different memories. 
Scrapbook album kits takes the guess work out of coordinating colors and embellishments.  These kits come with all the papers, ribbons, fabric, lace and embellishments to complete.  
And the best thing, is that the instructions and photos will be sent in a downloadable file so you can either print them out or view them on your computer, IPad/tablet and or phone.  

Why not start documenting you and your family's story?
