Joyful Day

After a bit of a technical hiatus, Susan is back with two gorgeous collections in two weeks! I am still working on several other layouts, but I wanted to stop and share this page that is so dear to me.

Not to cross-pollinate, but I am also a member of the Simple Scrapper Creative Team. Jennifer, over at Simple Scrapper, has created this really excellent Scrapbooker's Bucket List. One of my bucket list layouts was telling the story of my awesome step-parents (my dad's first wife and her "new" husband). These two people saved my life, and I couldn't think of a more joyful couple to celebrate with Susan's new Joyful Day collection:

This layout makes me super happy, just like them!

The best part is that the layout I am working on next looks nothing like this- the kit is so versatile, you'll have no problem using it over and over!

Pick up the kit and the freebie in the shop, ASAP!

Grab it HERE.

Happy Trails, Revisited

Hello, hello!

Summer has been hot and sticky for me up here in DC's swampy weather, so in between manic dashes to the community pool with my family, I've been spending lots of time indoors, decluttering my house and my scrap stash. 

The cool thing about decluttering is that it leads you to discover things you didn't even realize you had. While sorting my scrap stash by theme, I rediscovered this super sweet western-inspired kit by Susan. The best part was my mother-in-law had just sent me a photo of my guy at about 5 years old, grinning and wearing his favorite cowboy outfit. Now, I was shocked to say the least. My guy's version of roughin' it is living more than 15 minutes from a 7-Eleven, so I was bowled over by this adorable, but confusing, photo. I knew I had to get the story and scrap it. 

Here is what I started with:

and this is what I ended up making:

I love how it turned out!

If you love the ranch life, or have a little cowboy (or girl!) of your own, Happy Trails is a beautiful kit! Pick it up HERE.

Magical Memories

Hello fellow scrappers! Bre here, stopping by to share a layout I just made with Susan's amazing Magical Memories Collection . I simply adore this kit- filled with beautiful papers,  mixed media, enamel brads and just about every Mickey-themed embellishment imaginable, there isn't anything not to love! As a matter of fact, this is the first Disney layout I've managed to finish from my last three trips, so take that for the glowing testimonial it is!

A closer look here:

If you think this kit is beautiful too, pick it up HERE

Susan also created this magical freebie for her customers- grab it up, quick!

Lilac Cottage CT page


Bre here, finally thawing out from a miserable winter in DC. While I had to de-ice my car 3 times this week, we also saw peek bloom during the renowned Cherry Blossom festival. The grass on my lawn finally turned green, and the bulbs along my front walk are opening.

Along with enjoying the warmer temps outside, I am participating in the #100dayproject with what feels like the rest of the creative world. I challenged myself to make progress on my enormous backlog of online classes each day- and for those classes that need scrapbook supplies, I want to take the opportunity to play with my gorgeous stash of Raspberry Road kits.

After seeing some photos of my kiddo gently cupping the new spring flowers, I knew I had to take the chance to use the lovely Lilac Cottage Collection:
