3Ls - new tag :)

I have a new tag tonight - I am gearing up for a tag war I am supposed to participate in soon. I'm sort of excited for it but not overly yet, I've just been too busy, lol! Anyhow I played with a really cute kit tonight, it's called Denim Daze and is by Honored Scraps. The colors worked so perfectly with this tube, the tag practically made itself! The word art piece caught my eye and I just had to use it.
Kit is available for purchase at Country Hollow Scraps Store.

New Tut - Better

I have a new tut for you all tonight. I used a scrapkit called Sweet Dreams by Baby Cakes Scraps.

Tut can be found here:

Heh that's just the name of the kit I used for the two layouts I made today. This kit has loads of pink and black - which is awesome for me since I love both those colors. It's a nice (bright) break from the red kick I have been on with my tags. Not that I won't still use plenty red if I feel like it, it was just a nice change and the kit was fun to use.

As mentione the kit is called Whatever and it's by Ariana's Kreations. It's a PTU kit and is available for purchase here: Digiscrapbooking.ch

Hallosweet blog

Words are soooo not working for me today, that's what happens when your dog wakes you up too early, I guess. I am managing to create and play in psp so it's not all bad.. Anyway I'm sure you want me to get to the point of this post and I should do so before I ramble too much.. Okay, here goes - I have a blog layout to share - woot! I made this with an awesome halloween kit from HezaScraps, called Hallosweet. The kit is available for purchase at Treasured Scraps.
Here is a preview of the layout:

You can download the layout here:

New Tut: TLC-2

Hey all.. just here quick to post up a new tut/tag. I'm pretty tired today so not feeling too 'wordy' lol. I used a kit called Hello Nurse from Cora's Creations for this tag. I'm on a red kick it seems - but hey red is pretty! (and so is this kit)

You can find the tut here: TLC-2

New Tut - TLC

Hay y'all I am back with another tag and a tut. Hmm I seem to be on a red and black kick.. well they are pretty colors, especially together :) For this tag, I used a scrap kit called Nurse Betty from Cora's Creations. It's a nice kit - was fun to make this tag and the kit comes with a little nurse gal - so if you don't have or want to use an MPT tube like I did, you don't have to.

Fall Fae

I'm back with a tag this time... would have been here earlier but I was spending quality time with the family and also watching the premieres of some of our shows. My husband and I had a long talk.. a good talk, it's just not often lately with how hectic things are that we have a chance to do that. So yay.. and now onto the tag. I made this tag using a scrapkit called Autumn Delight by Charly of Country Hollow Creations.


I have yet another layout for your viewing pleasure. In this one I tried to capture the theme of imagination, which went well with both the kit and pictures of my son outside playing.. the only 'toy' he had was a stick he'd picked up in the yard..

The kit I used for this is called Imagine that by The Urban Fairy, it is a PTU kit, available at OSDS in full and tagger sizes. She also has a sampler freebie for the kit on her blog: http://homeoftheurbanfairy.blogspot.com/
I recommend checking it out :)

Here is the layout I made with this kit.


Back with a tag I made, this one came out really nice I think, I had fun making it and the colors in the kit I used, went very well with the tube I wanted to use. (Love Rac!) I also love red and black - that's Tripp's fault (thank you very much dear). This kit had a bunch of cool elements and it was hard choosing which to use - I wanted to use them all! Anyway if you're wondering, the kit is called 'Punk Boi' and it's by Angel's Designz. (Available for purchase at Country Hollow Scraps Store)

Dancing with Daddy

...aaaannd I made another layout with some more of my wedding pictures. This is me dancing with my father.. it was a very special moment.. I made this layout with a kit called 'Tayton' from HK Designs. The kit is just gorgeous... it was wonderful for making a layout with these pictures. The elements were perfect and I had alot of fun making this.

Life's a...

Here is a tag I made on the 17th, which I also wrote a tut for. I stayed up late and was listening to Nickelback while creating it.. (yeah!) anyhow, I used a kit called Bad Diva PartII from Gothic Inspirations. The kit went perfectly with this tube.. awesomeness!

You can find the tut here: Life's a...


I wrote this tut a couple of days ago but didn't get a chance to post it till now.. I almost forgot to post it here at all! Sheeesh when I get off track, I really get off track..
Anyhow for this tut, I used a scrapkit called Ghosts of Halloween Past from Gemini Creationz.
Tut can be found here: Wicked

Happily ever after

I made another layout today.. yes I know you must be shocked since I don't make them often - lol! Anyway.. My wedding and pictures of my son are truly my favorite things to scrap.. It's hard to decide which one I enjoy using more - the only reason I make more layouts with my wedding at this moment is because I need a new scanner.

I made this layout with a kit called 'Love is in the air' by Totally Twisted Scraps. It's a very pretty kit and as you might be able to tell from the name, quite nice to scrap my wedding and anything 'love'.
Kit is available for purchace here: Love is in the Air

2 more layouts :)

Seriously.. anyone want a beagle? Sorry my dog was being a pain, now he's sleeping.. grr argh! lol. Alright here are two layouts I made on the 14th. I made both layouts with the same kit, it's a great one for the kids and for those first day of school pics. It's called Back 2 School from Cora's Creations. You can find her kits at Sophisti-Scraps.

This first page surprised me because I -hate- orange! But I created this page with a bunch of it and I like how it came out. The elements in this kit were fun - love the chalk :)

On this second layout I tried out some different elements and papers. I also experiemented with layering the string over and under the frame. and of course I used pictures of Mikey for both :

Sweet Dreams

The first layout I am going to post is one I made on the 13th, I got it up into my galleries but never got it posted here. That was the night I was scrapping away and then looked at the clock and went 'oh crap!' (oops) I tend to do that alot, being a night owl and all but on that night I needed to sleep since I had plans the next day with Rick's mom and grammie.

I made this layout using a kit called "Symphony" by Kiki Halbert at Scrapbook-Elements.com. The papers in this kit are really neat, a couple of them gave me the feel of being in a dream which is how I came up with the idea of using pictures of Mikey sleeping for the layout. There are lots of cool elements as you can see some of them in this layout. I tried to do something different rather than just a picture in a frame with this one. I like to try different things, sometimes they turn out really good and sometimes they don't. I think this one turned out pretty neat! Once I get my scanner hooked up, I will definitely want to make more layouts with this kit so I can use more of what is in it.

Catch up...

I had a very busy weekend and begining to this week so I have been absent from my blog, but never fear I have not abandoned it for long this time. I had some family things to do (places to go, people to see) and coupled with a lack of sleep made it impossible for me to get much out in the way of words or updates here. I did do some layouts which I will have to post so - Warning! Incoming posts- I'm not sure how many I skipped but hopefully I can get caught up with them tonight since I have another layout and a tut from today to get posted as well.

Haha.. I already got distracted just doing this post.. oy! *note to self* don't get behind again!
Okay, I'm off to try to get myself organized and get some stuff posted up :)
See ya soon, I hope!

Spooky CT stuff

I have another new tut tonight or rather this morning. I made this tag last night but was too tired to tut it then. I had my other halloween tag to tut too.. so now I finally got both done - woot! For this tag/tut I used a scrap kit called Spooky Hollow from Gemini Creationz. Wicked fun kit! If you like this kind of theme it can be used for more than just halloween tags or layouts. Really cool elements in this kit. It's one I will come back to many times.
Tut can be found here: Spooky
I also have a layout I made with the kit. It was just perfect for this picture of Mikey. The shirt he just had to have when we went school shopping. He also approved of this layout - thought it was cool.

Kit can be purchased here: http://www.geminicreationzs.com/Shop/

Cupid Caught QPs

I was able to CT another kit today from The Urban Fairy, this is one of her older kits and she was like 'remember it's an older kit'.. Well let me say it's fantastic! In my humble opinion. I fell in love with the word art from the start and that's what pulled me in. The colors are beautiful, appropriately in shades of pink and red. The frames and elements are great, there were two frames that I just totally love. I used them in both of the layouts I made, I usually try to use different ones but these were too perfect not to use again. I scrapped some of my wedding pictures and these frames had just the right touch for them. The kit is called Cupid Caught and is available for purchase at OSDS.

You can download both quick pages here: CC Quicks.

One of a kind

I did another tut today :) Once again, I used Tiffany Style scrap kit - tagger size, from Gemini Creationz. Available for purchase at TSD. If you haven't noticed.. or you've only just come by to see my stuff.. I like to use kits more than once. To me that is the true measure of a kit's worth, the more versatile a kit is, the more it's worth to me. When I look to purchasing a kit that's something I ask myself. How many times and ways can I use this.. the more I come up with, the more likely I am to buy it. Anyway on to showing off my tag and all that :)

Tut can be found here: One of a kind


Howdy everyone :) I have another tut today.. I used the scrapkit Tiffany Style from Gemini Creationz. Available for purchase at TSD. The kit is very pretty and filled with lots of little bits to play with. Remember I am the element gal, lol! Here are a couple of tags I made for this tut. I'll be running the script for my always list for these tags later (after I get me some sleep).
Oh and you can find the tut here: Tiff

I played with A Fae For All Seasons some more today, this is the kit I used for my tut last night and I fell in love with the colors. So I decided I needed to do some more with it, and I did.. I made two layouts. The first one is a blog layout which I have used on my tutorial blog. http://lovelytrippntuts.blogspot.com/

And this second one is one with a couple of my pics, I was just messing around with the kit to see what different things could be done with it. I prefer kits which are versatile and can be used for many different projects. This kit is definitely on that list :)

Layout by: Lovely Creations
Scrapkit: A Fae For All Seasons by Oopsie Daisy.

Summer Fae

I just made this super cute tag and wrote a tut for it. Every thing I used in the tag - except for the mask came in the scrap kit I used for this one. I am pleasantly surprised with how this came out, and surprised at how much I like it. The kit I used was beautiful, as you can see the colors are just perfect together. It was alot of fun to play with and the fae is just gorgeous! I used A Fae For All Seasons (Summer) from Oopsie Daisy. Available for purchase at TSD.

Jewel (CT stuffems)

I just finished another tut! I can't believe I'm actually writing tuts.. wow.. kind of crazy! It's also 4 am and I should so be in bed rather than in my psp.. oopsies! Anyway back to this tag and tut I just finished. I used a brand new kit called Jewels of India from HezaScraps. (She has cool tagger kits - you should check her out!) As you'll see on the tag this kit has a bunch of nice elements, my only issue with them was trying to choose which to use - I wanted to use them all! Guess that means I'll have to make another tag...
For now, here is this one - you can find the tut HERE


I played more with the kit 'Dark Of The Night' by Gothic Inspirations. I am really enjoying this kit, there are so many elements to play with along with some very cool papers. I know I will love using this kit again and again. Here is a blog layout I did with this kit.
