In Your Pocket Tuesday – Week 36 (2017)

Hello everyone.  Is it Spring where you are yet?  I don’t think the weather knows what it is where I am.  Yesterday it was snowing and Thursday is it supposed to be in the 60s.  Go figure. A nyway, I am here to share with you a Fall layout with some Spring flair.

I thought most of the cards I used kind of had a Spring or Summer feel to them. Especially this title card.  Makes me so happy.


Here is what the overall 1st page looks like.

IMG_1618I used quite a bit from my stash for this layout.  This wood veneer “1” came from a Scraptastic kit.IMG_1620

I love this little metal bike embellishment.  I believe I got this and several others from my friend.  They are from Making Memories.IMG_1621

I had quite a few phots this week. Many were taken of my daughter and her friends on a camping trip.IMG_1623

The banner is one that came from a die-cut pack.  The texture is a plastic feel and it is for use with your fuse tool, but I just use it as a regular die-cut.IMG_1624

Not this is a blast from the past.  The primitive heart came from Michaels many, many moons ago and the star is from a very old Studio Calico kit.  IMG_1625

I used several of these Katlin Shaefer labels.  I also had a cute burlap bow from my stash.  IMG_1626IMG_1627

I grabbed some pink thread to make a few nests around the page.  IMG_1628IMG_1629IMG_1630IMG_1631

I topped everything off with a few enamel shapes.IMG_1632

In Your Pocket Tuesday – January 2018

Hey There!

I have another Project Life page to share with you from my 2018 Album. I’ve just finished January and just as well as it is time to get my February photos printed and scrapped.


For this page i’ve used a DIY kit i’ve put together using old Crate Paper collections mainly. If you would like to see how to put your own kits together, here is a video How to Make DIY Scrapbook Kit20180227_20334620180227_20335320180227_203356

Even though i’ve used the mood board for inspiration, it turned out nothing like it apart from some colour elements like yellow and a bit of pink.February 2018 Inspiration

Check out the Video on Youtube for full start to finish process.

Have a great scrappy day!

In Your Pocket Tuesday – Week 32 (froggie251)

Hello.  Today I am back with a Project Life spread for In Your Pocket Tuesday.  This is a layout from week 32 of 2017 and I used a lot of cards from Simple Stories and a handful of embellishments from my stash.


This little “Laughter” embellishment is probably one of the oldest embellishments in my stash.  It is from about 2001.  I am keeping my journaling consistent for 2017 (for the most part) and continued on with journaling strips with a typewriter font.


I did a bit more layering on this card and used some embellishment from Crate Paper and a pink tag I picked up at the Target dollar spot.IMG_1503

For this photo I pulled some Mini Market stickers from October Afternoon.IMG_1504

The “life” stamp is from an Ali Edwards stamp set and the paint chip is from Simple Stories.  All of the black sequins I picked up over the weekend from Hobby Lobby.  IMG_1506

This little bow is from Hobby Lobby and there are more journaling strips.  IMG_1507IMG_1509 (1)

This is another old charm from my stash.  I think it was from Making Memories and I like how it adds a bit of interest and dimension to the card.  It also works well with the silver staples that I used to affix the speech bubble.IMG_1510IMG_1511

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you would like to see the video of how I made the layout, you can click here.

In Your Pocket Tuesday – Dec. Daily: Day 23 (froggie251)

Hello everyone.  Hope you enjoyed the holidays and have recovered from all of the busyness.  Today I wanted to share a layout I did in my December Daily album.  I was inspired by the colors and the snowy picture from the inspiration piece.

I used a 5×7 photo and a pocket pages with 2×2 squares. IMG_1030I used an off-cut from a 3×4 I cut down to make one of the 2×2 squares, cut a fishtail end and used it as a layering piece for the “loved THIS” stamped image.  The messy circle along with the sketched die-cuts I used, I got from the Inkie Quill Patreon page.  I love all fo the goodies she gives out each month. If you have not checked it out, you definitely should. The “loved THIS” stamp is from Ali Edwards.

IMG_1031For the number is used a circle sticker that I got from a number sheet that I picked up from the Target Dollar spot.  To embellish it a bit, I added a few wood veneer stars.

IMG_1032The “GATHER” stamp is also form Ali Edwards.  This was from a Thanksgiving stamp set.

I also added a wood veneer star and label from the Inkie Quill cut-a-part sheet.

IMG_1033IMG_1034I made shaker pockets in two of the squares. Both the stars and the glitter was from my stash.

IMG_1035Hope you will stop by to see how I made this page.  Just click here to get to the video.

Have a great day.

In Your Pocket Tuesday: Week 26 of 2017 (froggie251) Oct 24

Hello Crafty Mavens! Today we have Froggie251 with in your pocket Tuesday!

Today I wanted to share a layout that I made using the grungy/vintage feel of the inspiration piece. I thought that feel would go well with the photos of the circus and some of the vintage items they had on display as well as the colors in this weeks photos. I didn’t have a lot of pictures this week so I decided to go with a 12×12 and 6×12 layout. That left me with 3 spaces for journaling cards/filler cards. I kept my week card somewhat simple with a tag, some flowers, and a few die-cuts from my stash. The rest of the emblishments were things I have had in my scrap room for quite some time so it was good to get them on a page.-Froggie251-
