New year, new post

I wanted to start out 2018 by posting on this long-forgotten blog of mine.

I am still designing for Noel Mignon so I will have projects to share now and then if there is anyone out there still reading my blog ☺

Here is the project that I created for this week at Noel Mignon using the new She's So Crafty Classic kit. 

This is one of only a few projects I've ever done where I didn't use any photos. 

What is something new that you would like to try this year? 

If you are reading, could you say hi?

new kit from Noel Mignon

With a new month comes a new scrapbooking kit from Noel Mignon.

This month our kit is a Paris-inspired kit with lots of lace and textures and a softer color palette than last month's bright, summery kit.

Here is the first project that I have created with the kit, incorporating some hand stitching, which was our designer challenge for this week:

more fun with Noel Mignon High Five kits

Hi again!

Is your summer flying by like mine has?

It's hard to believe that it's almost the end of July already.

Because I will have my next kit soon I wanted to share more of my July projects with you:

I have loved creating with the High Five kits from Noel Mignon this month!

High Five kits from Noel Mignon

Hello again!

I took a little hiatus while we were on vacation and then thereafter dealing with computer/internet issues.

I have a couple of projects to share using this month's High Five Classic and Daily Diary kits from Noel Mignon.

Have a wonderful day!

new for Noel Mignon

The new Noel Mignon kits were revealed tonight and they are so cute!

I can't wait to start scrapping with those but for now I have another project that I made with the Dive In Daily Diary kit. It's still available in the Noel Mignon store. 

For this page I used a Silhouette cut file for the background along with lots of bits of paper and lots of different colors of spray mist. And, instead of just using the straw to make droplets on my page I actually did some spots where I sprayed. I know...shocker. I never do that.

The colors of the kit are so fresh and fun- I hope you feel inspired to create!

summer summer summer time

I love summer time not for the heat- I hate that part of it, actually- but because I love that we have more freedom to do whatever we'd like. We don't have the stresses of school and so many activities to get to every day.

It also means that I have slacked off with my blog again so I have some projects to share with you:

On our last day of school we went to the zoo in Abilene. Since then we have done lots of reading, lots of playing outside and lots of swim lessons. 

There is so much fun to be had during summer vacation.

a couple of things

I don't know about you but this time of year is so busy.

There is school to finish up, concerts and recitals and way too many things to do.

Last week I neglected to share my Noel Mignon kit project so today you get TWO new layouts.

Both of these pages were made using the classic May Noel Mignon kit, Spring Fling.

I apologize for the quality of the pictures.

My camera battery charger has been lost for a while and my battery is dead. I've had to just use my phone to take pictures of my projects lately.

Anyway, here is my layout from last week:

And this week's project: 

Best of luck to you as you finish out this month. It is going by so quickly.

Share your sparkle

One of the designer challenges this week at Noel Mignon was to incorporate stars into our project.

And, since today just so happens to be this cute girl's 6th birthday, I had to make sure she was front and center on my page.

In order to follow through with the star challenge I cut some strips of paper and created a big star for the background of my page. After that I added my pictures and lots of chipboard and epoxy accents.

Thanks for stopping by today!

wishes for my kids

For this week's project for Noel Mignon I created this layout using the Let's Get Lost Daily Diary kit for this month. 

Since I don't often use the 2"x3" cards in the traditional pocket page way I used the reverse sides to add some color and a mix of patterns to my page. 

I added lots of fun dimension and texture using embellisments from the kit, including washi tape, enamel dots, chipboard, a leather embellishment and some ribbon.
