HKC - Sweet Road Trip...




 




Having Grandkids is wonderful and provides SO much inspiration for Scrapbooking... I feel like I am reliving my childhood, without all the personal chaos that can go with it.. LOL

I love using the Cut Files, Papers, Thickers and Crystals from my Hip Kit Club Kits... the birds and die cut flowers are from a Shimelle "Never Grow Up" Collection... 

I am always delighted when Karla sends photos of a new Adventure that Avery is having and I laughed with delight when she told me that Avery waved at all the real cars going by and that many of them slowed down and waved back at her... I know this is all new and exciting for Avery but I have a sneaking suspicion, that it is just as much fun and exciting for her Mom, too..!!

Thanks for looking...!!

HKC - Dream Big...






I am working on a Scrap Album for my Granddaughter Avery and I have really enjoyed using the papers, ephemera and especially the Cut Files from Hip Kit Club....!!

I stamped the background with some older, discontinued stamps from Glitz Design... I also used my alcohol marker to darken the flowers, so they better suited the colours from the photos...

I just LOVE these pics of my son Rielly and Avery napping together... Rielly absolutely LOVES being a father and it makes my heart swell with joy to see this side of him.... 

Thanks for looking....

HKC - Stuck On You...

















I am always torn between crafting and all those "other"  real time duties we must perform..!! 

To make a long story short... I had been using PhotoPlay's "Stuck on You" Collection and it was full of greens and yellows that was part of this week's Colour Challenge over at Hip Kit Club.. I chose pink as my third colour and crafted a page with an adorable photo of my Daughter-in-Law and precious Granddaughter...

Thanks for looking...

CSI 352 - Best Friends for Life...








 
I've stepped away from scrapbooking for awhile but I wanted to scrap this amazing photo of my granddaughter Jaelin with one of her fur babies, Layla.. Layla is a Birman breed, said to be very affectionate with people and have those incredibly blue eyes..

Since the colour blue and Cats were featured in the Case file for #352.. I decided to play along. It also gave me an opportunity to experiment with using Cut Files... I think they are an amazing addition to our Scrapbooking arsenal...!!

The papers are from a very old My Minds Eye Collection - Bohemia - and this paper is called "Just be You Paisley/Teal" I have used both sides of this particular paper... the teal colour was perfect as a backdrop to Layla's eyes...

The ephemera is from a PhotoPlay Sticker Sheet called "Stuck on You"...

The Cut File is from a 2020 December Collection by the Hip Kit Club..

I am VERY happy with how this turned out...

Thanks for looking...

SCT - Spring Wishes...












The new April Sampler is in from SCT , and in it there is a sweet stamp set from Gina K Designs called "Springy Flowers"... I fussy cut the Frog and bug from the "Fern & Willard" Collection by PhotoPlay papers and used some of the other pattern papers in the Kit to make a top folding A2 Card...

This is a cute card and I plan on sending in to a very dear friend of mine in a long term care facility... Hopefully, it will cheer her up..!!

Thanks for looking...

SCT - Happy Birthday...






I have this beautiful stamp from Anita Jeram called "Birthday Wishes" and I wanted to make a Rocker Card with the last few pattern papers I had left from my March Sampler Kit from SCT..

I also wanted to see if I could re-create those beautiful watercolour  animals that are found in the infamous Peter Rabbit books...

I very much like how this turned out..and I really hope my granddaughter does, too..!! 

Thanks for looking....
