This Moment

"Could you just die!" This was a phrase commonly heard when I was growing up. When you come from a small town like I did, everything was always new and exciting (sometimes even if it really wasn't). But When I look at this Pheobe line of paper from Basic Grey, I really could! I really could just die!!! It's so fun and colorful without being too cutesy.

I also have found a new stamp line that I am loving. It's the new acrylic stamps from Autumn Leaves. One of the sets available is a build-a-flower set by Katie Pertiet. You get all kinds of petals, stems, leaves and things to make your own flowers. I also love the swirls set designed by Rhonna Farrer that they offer! It's full of whimsy.

My other latest addiction {since my addictions are constantly changing} is sparkles! I found them in a bottle! Frosted Lace Stickles by Ranger is perfect just for that! You get the glitter without getting the mess. I know they have been around for a while, but I am trying to start to expand my horizons, so to speak, and try new things. It is probably hard to tell in the picture but I used them all over. On the swirls and on the flowers. I can't forget about the Bazzill Basics scallop paper and the Karen Foster nickel loopy brads. The scallop paper is just a corner of it so it is on the bottom and side of where the photo is. And the loopy brads create a fun photo corner by having a place to tie ribbon through!

So the general idea for this layout isn't one of my own. It was All My Memories {my favorite scrapbook store!!!!} make and take of the week. It was a little different but it's the same general idea.

I haven't scrapbooked for a while but I am starting to get back into the swing of things. Like most people I suffer from scrappers block a lot. And doing cards and other things has helped with that since you don't have to worry about photo placement. Just one less thing to think about. But I do want to make sure I can scrapbook as much as possible. So I am making it a goal to do at least 3 pages a month. That should get me back in the swing of things.
Here's a list of supplies:
  1. Pheobe Basic Grey paper
  2. Bazzill Basic scallop paper
  3. Karen Foster loopy brads
  4. Deja Views Rub-Ons
  5. Build-A-Flower stamps by Katie Pertiet from Autumn Leaves
  6. Swirls v: I stamps by Rhonna Farrer from Autumn Leaves
  7. Old Olive, Regal Rose, Marigold Morning, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Up! classic stamp pads
  8. Frosted Lace Stickles by Ranger
  9. Copper Brads from Stampin' Up!
  10. Stampin' Up! cream gingham, All My Memories brown grosgrain with white flowers, Offray brown polka-dot and turquoise organdy ribbons

To make the half circle of copper brads around the bottom right hand corner, I used the All My Memories circle template to place the holes. This is a new product from them and comes with all different shapes and a paper piercer.

Happy Stamping Everyone!
