Hey crafty friends! So excited to be joining the hop this month with my bling beach scrapbook layout.
To create this layout I started with a VERY old (3 years to be exact) kit from My Creative Scrapbook as well as a few bits and pieces from my very first The Secret Not Secret Kit Club kit. I combined them to create a bling beach scrapbook layout featuring both our son and daughter.
I used a bubble die cut that came in my kit and filled it in with patterned paper from the other kit. The circles helped as you could embellish each one individually to add to the whole design. For some I went plain and for others I layered it up. I also did some with just a dashed line so it was interesting, but didn’t really cause any distraction to the rest of the elements.
Now I know what you’re thinking…where’s the bling!? It is harder to see in the large photo so I took a few close ups for you. The first place I added some sparkle was in the lower left cluster of embellishments. Stickles to the sea shell and pineapple were the perfect thing.
I also used a clear wink of stella pen in the upper left corner on the ampersand. I like the clear wink of stella the best since it doesn’t alter the color of the item I’m using it on. I have several other colors, but they never seem to match the piece I want to sparkle up so clear is my most used. I also inked this with a slightly different aqua than the rest of the page to try and make it pop just a bit.
I hope you enjoy my creation and what the other ladies have created. Make sure to hop on over and see what they’ve done!

On the first Wednesday of each month, a group of DIY and crafty bloggers join forces to bring you the #BlingontheCrafts blog hop. Each blogger creates a glittery, sparkly, shiny, shimmery, sequined, or “blingy” craft to share that goes with a monthly theme.
May’s theme is summer. Each blogger chooses their own craft to make as long as it shines and is summer themed.
Hey Crafty Friends! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. If you arrived here from Karen’s blog and it’s your first time with me…Welcome…otherwise welcome back. Today I want to share with you my top ten layouts of 2017.
I have them in no particular order and if you click on the title of each it will take you to the blog post, or youtube video, with more information on each. Some of these I chose for their design elements and some for the stories behind the pages.
Okay – all ten – all with different attributes that make them great. I thank you for joining me today and for all your support in 2017. If you haven’t subscribed yet please consider doing that before hoping on to Anna’s blog. Also, if you leave me a comment and like my Facebook page I’ll pick a winner for a mini album made by yours truly! Have a wonderful New Year.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – time for the annual 25 Days Of Christmas Movies Blog Hop! #ChristmasMoviesHop
We have 25 talented bloggers gathered together to share with you all the wonderful crafts and recipes you can make this Christmas season, based off of some of the most beloved holiday classic films. There are 25 films to be inspired by for your holiday season, and 25 talented bloggers to aid your inspiration! If you love Christmas movies, you have come to the right place!!
Now let’s check out the rest of the amazing Christmas creations!
I’m so excited to be back today sharing a mini album that I made as part of the 25 days of Christmas movies blog hop. We each have picked a movie and created a project around that movie. For my inspiration I chose the movie The Santa Clause Three.
I chose this movie due to the inclusion of Jack Frost…snow/cold is one of my favorite things. The inspiration for a snow themed mini album was born.
I created a waterfall mini album using one piece of chipboard and a My Creative Scrapbook kit I’ve had since 2015. Most of the items are from the Pebbles Winter Wonderland collection. There sadly isn’t much of it left out there as it was gorgeous.
I love the way the waterfall looks with the lacy corners, and frosty colors. I used my favorite Fiskars corner rounder because I thought it looked like a lacy snow pattern.
I chose a simple design for the cover that emphasized snow, but left room for the owner to put a photo in. The addition of a photo would make it truly unique to that person.
I have also created a youtube video on my channel showing how I put the book together. I’d love if you came over and checked it out.

Without further ado…here is the page I created for the hop. I don’t usually do pocket pages, but I had so so many photos of this one that I worked the best. I took a pocket page I had and used my fuse tool to alter the sizes to fit my photos. Most of the goodies are from Doodlebug with some Queen & Co washi and Fancy Pants puffy stickers thrown in.
Up next is Barbara, but I hope you will follow me on whatever platform you are most comfortable with before you hop along.
