Basic Grey Hopscotch

What a sweet new collection Basic Grey Hopscotch.
Remember the days when love was simple and innocent? Recall the moment you realized boys (or girls) did NOT have cooties? When all it took was passing a note with a ‘check yes or no’ question to secure everlasting love, well, at least for a week or two? BasicGrey is bringing back the days of awkwardly-thrilling first dances, butterflies in the stomach and secret crushes with the new Hopscotch line.

Holiday Magic and A day at the park

Two magical layouts by Julie Tucker-Wolek!

{Holiday Magic}

BoBunny WINTER JOY Scrapbooking Purple Pom Pom Wrap

{A day at the park}

Julie says about her layout: "I wanted to make non-holiday layouts with Bo Bunny's "Winter Joy" collection.  I also wanted to make my doily stretch throughout the page, so I cut it into four pieces and used each piece in the corners of my paper! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) I also saw Tessa Buys make a banner on one her layouts wavy across one of her pages, and I LOVED that idea, and did it on mine here! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Tessa did hand stitching, and I used my Black Sharpie instead to create my 'wavy' banner across the page! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)"

I also used some of the "period" dots from the Thickers from the Dear Lizzy Enchanted line on top of my Lily Bee chipboard buttons! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Art Glitter white gold- it's fabulous.  Love is painted with Mica Gloss Ruby metallic ink.
For this ornament I used Graphic45 Paper, Tim Holtz Distress Walnut ink and topped with Tim Holtz Ranger Rock Candy.
 The green ornament is cut from Grunge Paper, distress inked and stamped.  The joy is painted with Mica Gloss Ruby, black Maya Road Glitter, and Tinsel from Pink Paislee.
 Tinsel from Webster's pages.

A Christmas Tree shaped album with bold prints, fun holiday scrappy embellies (BG chipboard, ribbons, flowers, oh my!) .. I'm thrilled how easy, fast and fun this little keepsake mini was to create! It will be filled with special handwritten notes on all the pages, a Ghiradelli chocolate on first page and a fun gift card will be waiting on the last page! Another super fun project that I'm thrilled to give as a holiday gift :)

Mr. & Mrs.

A beautiful and touching layout by Julie Bonner! 

I love this picture of my son & my best friend's daughter.  We had just celebrated our Christmas with them & Ryan was so into the doll we bought for her.  He is so excited for our own baby to arrive & was asking me all kinds of questions about how to take care of it :)  I loved how the 2 of them are hovering over the little doll, taking care of her together.  They reminded me of a married couple with their newborn :)

The close-ups showcase making the most of your embellishments by cutting them in half - a great way to multiply the embellishments you have & be able to spread them through the layout.  You'll notice in the first close-up the Maya Road sheer doily and the patterned paper circle have been cut in half.  They are used here & again on the lower left side of the layout.  The second close-up displays a journaling die-cut that I cut in half.  It created a great accent at the top of the page that was both decorative and functional for journaling.
