Easy Layouts Using A Grid: My Creative Scrapbook

Hello everyone!

I'm finishing up my projects with the February kit from My Creative Scrapbook and have saved my favorite for last. 

This is my sweet little guy in his red wagon, enjoying a treat on a balmy Valentine's Day. 

The February Creative Kit features the Yours Truly collection from Pebbles Inc and I was immediately drawn to this adorable paper:

I knew I wanted to feature those cute Valentines, so I carefully trimmed the inside squares, leaving the outer border. 

The flip side of this paper is a pretty floral and I used that to border my layout. On the inside, I placed the valentine cards in a grid around my photo. The watermark on the photo was a rub-on from the kit. It worked perfectly!

Here's another look at the final layout. It was so fun to do!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great week!

Mini Envelope Valentine Frame

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day!  

I love re-purposing old frames. Today I am up on the Fancy Pants Designs blog with a Valentine project using a standard 5 x 7 inch wood frame. 

I got the idea to do a frame of little love letters after finding this McGill envelope punch at a thrift sale for $3. It makes the cutest little envelopes. 

I punched several envelopes from double sided paper from the Be Loved collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  It's such a sweet collection. I love the mix of yellow, aqua and grey with traditional pink and red.

The base of the project is the pretty yellow side of the Adoration paper from Be Loved, trimmed 5 x 7 inches to fit a standard frame. I added the mini envelopes I had punched then decorated them with buttons, stickers and ephemera.

After the piece was complete, I added a bright blue bird and a sentiment to the outer frame.  

Here’s another look at the final project.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope your day is extra sweet!

Lovin' From The Oven: My Creative Scrapbook

Last year for Valentine's Day, my then 3-year-old and I made some yummy heart-shaped cookies using a strawberry cake mixCory loves to help in the kitchen, especially when sweets are involved!  Being a scrapbooker, of course I took a few photos along the way. 

These photos were a terrific excuse to break out some pink paper, something I don't do often when scrapbooking my little guy. But I couldn't resist here, especially since I had the terrific new February kit from My Creative Scrapbook in my hands.  The kit featured the sweet Yours Truly line from Pebbles Inc. 

I blogged about making these cookies last year. They use just three ingredients, plus a cream cheese frosting. The recipe is on that blog post if you'd like to try them. They are easy enough for a three-year-old, my kind of recipe!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
