More to share!

I'm still getting caught up on all of the fun stuff that I haven't shared yet!  Here are two layouts that were in recent issues of Scrapbook News & Review.  They were both in the sketches section of the magazine. 

This sweet-little-kissable-face belongs to Daniel and he is the son of two wonderful people that I work with.  I wasn't a scrapper yet when my kids were babies, so I borrow other peoples' babies to scrap!  And, I LOVE this line of Fancy Pants paper!!

Here's one of miss Elizabeth featuring some gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers.  The were the perfect colors to scrap my little red-head!!
Thanks for stopping by!!  I still have lots more to share and will be back soon!

I {heart} Jubilee!!

Being on the Best Creation Design Team has been an INCREDIBLE ride so far!!  I knew they had great products, but having had them in my hands now, I can say they have AMAZING products!!  The photos of the papers just don't do them justice.  You need to see them in person-- all the detail-- to really get the full effect.

One of first lines that I got to work with, might just be my favorite:  JUBILEE!!  The bright, fun colors and great patterns are just perfect for my style of scrapping.  Here are a few projects that I made with Jubilee!

This is a sweet little set of mini cards complete with a little bag to put them in.  They were SO fun to make!

I've been looking for just the right papers to scrap this photo of my boy who was SO PROUD of the ginormous sun flower that he grew!

I made a fun desk calendar to enjoy all year long!  Here's the front:
And, here's the back:

Isn't this just the cutest line EVER??!!  I don't have much of it left, but I might just have to get some more!  There's so much more I can do with it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll be back soon to share more of what I've been working on for Best Creation!

So much to share!!

I have been a bad, bad blogger and haven't been sharing my work with you like I should be.  So, it's my mission this week to make up for lost time and share what I've been up to!!

Today, I want to show you what I've been doing for Scrappin' Sports & More.  Their Calendars Made Easy line is so much fun and I decided to make a 6''X6" Calendar to use as a gift.  But, I am loving it so much, that I might just keep it!!  I used the paper and cardstock sticker for each page and now I'm creating 6"X6" mini-layouts for each month.  Here are the ones I've done so far!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I'll be back later this week to share some more of what I have been doing with you!!

Nicole Wise (you're here!)

I'm pretty new to the world of making mini-albums and this is a great album to continue to learn and experiment with.  My album is called "It's a Girl's World" and it's about my daughter getting to meet the "girly" characters when we went to Disneyworld last month.  She is so excited about this album and can't wait to take it to school and show it to her friends.  I decided to keep it simple because, well, that's my style, but also to show you that it doesn't have to be super elaborate- just photos, journaling and pretty Best Creations Paper is all you need!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to keep on hopping along with the Best Creation Design Team.  Your next stop is Jodi Wilton's blog!

Wholly Scrappin' in March!!

I had a great time designing with the fabulous products from Wholly Scrap! this month!  I got to play with GORGEOUS Little Yellow Bicycle papers and some fun Pebble Stickers that worked fabulously with Bo Bunny Double Dot Cardstock!

First of all, the LYB.  When I first saw the "Twig" line of paper, I wasn't bowled over.  Then, I saw some work that other designers did with it and I fell in love.  When I saw it at Wholly Scrap! and they gave it to me to work with I was super excited!!!  I did a layout with this same design a few weeks ago and it featured my daugther as a baby.  I thought it would be fun to re-do the layout with different photos and a more recent photo of her and see how different it looked.  I LOVE how it turned out.  The more "mature" papers fit the more "mature" photo perfectly!  And, I love how the matching epoxy stickers look in the center of the flowers!

Then, I was asked to work with these super cool Pebbles stickers.  I picked up some of the Bo Bunny Double Dot papers that I LOVE to go with them and it was a ton of fun!  I remembered these photos of my son that were taken one day in the car while he was sporting his cool new shades and taking himself pretty seriously (until the camera came out) and it was a perfect match!  He loves this layout!

  If you are in the area of North Hampton, NH, swing on over to Wholly Scrap! and check out all of the goodies!  And, if you're not in the area, you can get directions from their website!! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
