One last one....

One last Scaredy Cat creation to share....I can't promise there won't be more tho :)

That large spider you see was a mess up on a card I made. Apparently I never changed the dial size prior to cutting it and ended up with this large spider. I couldn't throw him away so here he is on my page...I can't wait to see my cuties on this page I've created.

Scardy Cat

Summer is fading, fall is here and boy is it chilly already in northern MN! Yesterday was the perfect day to pull out some Scardy Cat so that's what I did. This pack is so fun and could easily be used for everyday scraping or card making. Hope you enjoy them!

Hello there!  I'm back and as promised, I have a Lollydoodle layout for you.

Those owls are killing me with their cuteness!!  I love them and I love the flowers that Dana Kessler inspired me with!  Visit her blog HERE!  I like this layout because I can capture tiny moments on this page and still fit 7 pictures on it!  The layout came from the "Make It From Your Heart" book that CTMH offers for only $7.95!  There are so many great sketches along with cutting guides in it!  There are also cards in this fun little book!!  Such a great deal!

Interested in getting your Lollydoodle or the Make It From Your Heart?  Visit my website HERE!

Hey thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your Memorial weekend!!!  My classes start again this week but only for 3 weeks!

Ariana part 2

As mentioned yesterday I'm back today to show you another Ariana layout:

Isn't this paper gorgeous?!  I've got some really cute pictures of Chloe to put on this layout from Easter.  This is one of them that I'm getting printed:

I'm not quite sure what I love most about this picture....I love everything.  This is my girl- just a happy 2 year old without a care in the world.

Thanks for stopping by!  Next up is CTMHs Lollydoodle!  And it is FUN! 

Friday, May 23, 2014


Today I'm sharing a layout made with CTMHs Ariana collection- this has quickly became one of my favorites.  It has such a sweet feminine look and is so trendy:

What do you think?  I love that "This & That" sentiment/title along with the camera.  I'm hoping to get some great shots of chloe this summer to scrap.

Check out my website HERE to get your collection.  AND stop back tomorrow to see another layout I made using this beautiful collection!

A little Jubliee

Spring is here but summer still seems like a 100 years away here in MN....I thought I'd share a page of my little sweet girl from last summer using the current Jubilee pack from CTMH:

Isn't Jubilee so fun!?!  Here's another page for you:

I literally put my pictures on and added a few embellishments- the paper came with all the flourishes and washi tape look to it.  I love how CTMH makes scrapbooking so easy for us!!

If you are interested in checking it out, visit my website HERE and search Jubilee.

A Daring Adventure

Can you tell my college classes have ended for a few weeks?  I've been posting so much lately! 

Today I'm showing the Timberline paperpack from CTMH-

Here's my big boy having a 'daring adventure':

Timberline was perfect for these photos and it's fun to have an outdoors paperpack- our family is definitely an outdoors family with all the camping, hunting and fishing.  I'm out of this pack but will soon be ordering more for this summer's activities.

Visit my website Here if you are interested in taking a peek at this pack along with the stickease.  The stickease makes the pages come together so easy and quick!

Owl You Need is Love- Hip Pic Album

Hello!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  It was a gorgeous day here in MN!  We were at my parents about 3 hours south and it was 75!  We were able to have the egg hunt for the kids outside and it was just a perfect day!

I thought I'd share the mini album I made while at my parents.  Mom and I created on Saturday and it was so fun!

This little album will be a baby gift.  I used Lollydoodle and the matching stickease.  I literally used scraps that my mom had left over from one of her creations.  That is one thing I love about creating these fun albums- you don't need much paper.

Stop back tomorrow to see the matching card :)

Thanks for stopping by! Kim

Rose Blossom Skylark Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Rose Blossom Skylark Blog Hop!!  We are so happy you joined us!  If you just came from the talented Cathy's Blog then you are on the right track!  The Rose Blossom team is showcasing the lovely Skylark and Close to My Heart circut cartridges!

For this hop, I altered a Kraft container.  I added hollyhock cardstock in the mix with Skylark to show how versatile this paper pack can be!

The flowers are cut from the Artiste cartridge and distressed with chocolate ink and topped off with the matching Skylark embellishments.

The stampset used is Fabulous You and the sentiment is inked in chocolate ink.

Skylark is such a fun and beautiful paperpack to play with!  AND if you JOIN MY TEAM it will be included in your consultant kit!!  Not only that, but you will also be able to pick from 1 of the 3 CIRCUT CARTRIGES FOR FREE!!  Yes, CTMH is including a cartridge, that was not a typo!  If you have ever thought about joining CTMH, now is the time!!  The cartridge alone is valued at $99 which is the cost of the kit!  There is over $400 in CTMH products for $99!!  Wow!  On top of all that, you would also be joining a team that is filled with creativeness and kindness.  I can honestly say, this is such a close team and we have formed friendships that are everlasting.  These girls aren't only Rose Blossoms, they are my friends.  All of us have different goals with CTMH- having a business or being a hobbiest, but one thing is for sure, we are all here for each other and support each other like no other.

This was such a fun, springy project to create! I hope you all enjoy your Easter weekend and may it be filled with many blessings!

Circuit Cut Happy Mother's Day

Hi there!

Sharing a quick card today that was inspired by Brenda Rose.  The sketch I used was from Atlantic Hearts Challenge Blog.  (I only used the sketch, did not enter the challenge as this was inspired by someone else's creativity) Brenda had used a white circut cut on a lovely Easter card she made and I loved the simple and elegant look to it.  I happen to have a 'practice cut' in my scraps so I thought I'd use it on this simple mother's day card that I'll be giving to my Mother in Law.  Since I had a 12 inch piece, I layered it to give it more dimension.

Supplies Used: all ctmh unless noted
Artbooking Cartridge
Skylark paper
Teal shimmer tape
Black Ink
Hollyhock Ink
Holiday Tags Stampset
