I used October 2014’s CREATE magazine sketch to crack out my 6×6 paper pads. I paired those papers with these “cute” photos of the different moths we encountered in Maine last summer while camping and exploring.

Tobins Chalk Art color adjust

Last summer, Tobin was starting to get interested in drawing. He spent a lot of time outside on the driveway drawing with chalk.  I wanted to capture some of his first art, so I got up on a ladder to snap some shots.  This Scrapbook Generation sketch was the perfect way to incorporate the artwork photos as well as Tobin in process.  See what more designers did with the same sketch in the August 2014 issue of CREATE magazine!

Walking through our neighborhood and watching the ducks that live in the fountains.  A favorite activity. This layout was part of the awesome CREATE magazine May 2014 issue.

I loved using this combination of blues.  It was fun to layer them in the foundation of my layout. And it was super easy to find photos to use with this color combination – it’s very versatile.

I used my Silhouette and the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing to whip up these creations. So, so quick and easy. With the interfacing on, the cotton appliques cut on the Silhouette like butter. Then iron in place and stitch along the edge. Super fun, super cute, super happy kids!

Rock, Paper, Scissors!

Here Comes Trouble


This layout was featured in the April edition of CREATE magazine.  Please go take a look for more inspiration!

Taking a stroll through Trader Joe’s is a whole new ball game when you let your two little guys have shopping carts.  It was fun! or… it was fun?  😉

Notes: The grocery cart was cut and pieced together by hand.  Sometimes you just can’t find the right premade embellishment.  I knew exactly what I wanted so I found a way to make it.
