Take a look at my circle layout:

Artist Marker refill

I used the new Alcohol Marker refills to create the background of this circle layout!

Here’s how I created this layout:

Place a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock on a craft sheet.

Drop a couple of drops of Altenew Coral Berry, Frosty Pink and Ruby Red from Artist Marker Refill Set A onto the white cardstock.

Once it dries, use a small plate and trace the rim. Cut out the circle.

Adhere the circle to another piece of white cardstock and cut the circle again.

Adhere the photo to the left side, using foam tape.

Use a sewing machine, stitch around the edge of the photo and the edge of the circle.

Artist Marker

Stamp the sentiment using the Altenew Thick and Thin Alpha stamp set.

Handwrite the journaling and add some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots to finish the page off.

Hello everyone!! Simon Says STAMPtember is in full swing! Are you enjoying all of the releases? I hope so!

Dainty Sprng

The name of this stamp set is called Dainty Sprig! I love the simplicity of this flower set!

Here’s how I created this journal cover:

I decided to stamp the flower along the left side of the retired Stampin’ Up! Kraft Grid Journal, with the sentiments to the right.

I colored the flower in using Tombow Recycled Color Pencils.

Nice and Easy!

Take a look at my holiday planner notebook:

Blessing Stamp Set

For this holiday planner notebook, I used Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection patterned paper, the new Altenew Blessing Stamp Set and the Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set.

Here’s how I created this notebook:

Place the chipboard on top of the pattern paper, use a number 15 Penblade to cut the patterned paper.

Once the front is done, do the same for the back cover.

Now use the We R Memory Keepers Cinch to put the book together.

Now, stamp each kraft pocket with a different sentiment.

To finish the notebook off, add some tabs so that you know which section of the notebook is which!

You can tuck all of your coupons and receipts into the pockets of the notebook. Everything in one place.

I kept this notebook clean and simple. It allows the recipient to decorate it they way they want.

Let’s take another look:

Taylor Expressions 10th Birthday Celebration

Yayyyy! I’m so excited to celebrate with Taylored Expression on their 10th Anniversary! They’re having a HUGE party. Almost 40 designers are involved in this celebration!! All of the links to this hop is listed on Taylored Expressions Blog. Follow along as to not miss any of the designers amazing work.

Taylored Expressions new released went live last night and is available now!! Check it out here.

I designed for Taylored Expression from July 2016 to August 2017. I was apart of the Clearly Planned design team. It was amazing to be apart of a brand new team working with brand new stamps and dies. I fell in love with my planner because of this team. I am grateful to Taylor for believing in me.

This planner spread is one of my favorites. It’s from February 2017. I used Clearly Planned Love Struck  stamp set.

What better way to show my love for Taylored Expressions then to make a card!!!

Let’s take a look:

Bloomin birthday

Clean and simple is my style and this stamp set made it easy to accomplish that! This stamp set is called Bloomin Birthday. The simplicity of the flowers is fun.

Take a look inside:

Bloomin Birthday

What’s a greeting card without the sentiment inside. That’s why I added one. It completes the card.

What do you think? I would love to hear in the comment section below.

Share Joy Campaign

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. As part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. To make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign.
