kiss a ginger day

I had so much fun with the Cocoa Daisy kit for February. There is lots of  Dear Lizzy products, so you know I love it. Here is a 12x12 layout with hand cut letters and a single 5x5 picture. (From Parabo Press) Kiss a Ginger Day with my little ginger.  

Here's a pocket scrapbook page I made with everyday photos. 

I made this banner with instax photos and fun embellishments. 

Here is a 12x12 layout with an interactive pocket with "things I love about you" for my boys to read. 

Another pocket scrapbook page with the cute Cocoa Daisy "day in the life" kit. And these new photos of my boys that I LOVE! Valentine photo shoot taken by Stacey Hansen Photography. 

Two more fun projects made with this kit are in a previous post. It has a process video. Click here. 


I made this fun Valentine's day layout with a mix of papers I had. Theres a step by step process video at the bottom of this post.

I typed on this cute heart that I cut out of a paper gift sack. 

Valentines day selfies are a must.

Every Valentine's day, I make Creme Brulee. Its really not hard. Here's the recipe:

Here's the process video for this layout:


you make my heart soar

I had so much fun making these cute Valentine cards and a layout with a paper from my February Cocoa Daisy kit. Watch the video below to see my process. 



Don't you love a good podcast? If you don't already, you should definitely listen to Pocket Talk, a podcast with scrapbookers around the world discussing their processes. I was lucky enough to get to interview with Jess. My podcast is episode 23. You can get there by clicking HERE, or it can be downloaded with itunes or google play. I love listening to Pocket Talk while I am crafting or running. You will love it too. 



January's Cocoa Daisy kit was adorable. It had lots of pink, hearts, moons and butterflies. I can't wait to share what I made with the kit.

My husband and I will be celebrating our 12 year anniversary in a few weeks. With this romantic kit, I knew I wanted to make a layout about us. 

That typewriter card had me at hello. It is the cutest! Here's a layout with the day in the life kit. It is the back side to the previous layout, which worked out great because that top left card is darling on both sides and I was able to utilize both sides! I love it when that happens. That tag was so fun to type on which went right along with the typewriter card. Overall, the layout is just some everyday moments with my kiddos.

Here's what our New Year's Eve looked like. There were lots of balloon popping, confetti throwing, and horn blowing. And it all happened around 9pm woot woot. I cut out the hearts from a 12x12 sheet for the top right card. I wanted to use that pink "2017" 3x4 card but it wasn't quite the right size for this layout, so I cut it into a pennant flag and added to a banner. 

For my last project, I wanted to use this darling paper by Pink Paislee that was made up of a grid of lots of cute squares. I knew interactive paper flaps would be fun to go with the squares. I will let you watch the video below to see how I made it.
