National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!!

Happy National Scrapbook Day 2015!! 

To kick off this NSD right, I thought I would share something HIGHLY appropriate. My very 1st layout of 2015.... dun dun duuuuuuuuuuun....

Most of my scrapbooks these days are filled with pocket pages. They work well for me and I can mostly keep up with our daily lives. But, every now and again, I like to throw a good ol' 12x12 layout into the mix. In honor of NSD, here is my current take on traditional scrapbooking. 

I mean, look at all those goodies I can get onto the page. They really do capture parts of our Pip! 

What are your plans for NSD? I have my regular Saturday night crop to attend and I will be co-hosting an all day crop on the 16th! Hopefully I can get a few more layouts done for the album and keep things interesting! 

A little bit from out sponsors...
Chances are, if you are reading this blog you love to scrapbook. Today, scrapbooking takes on many different forms from the traditional 12x12 layouts to smaller formats like 8.5 x 11, 6x6 and the ever growing popular pocket scrapbooking. Whichever form you prefer, we are all story tellers and love to preserve our family memories for generations to come. That is why I love that we take out the first Saturday each May to celebrate this wonderful hobby. As you hang out at crops at your Local Scrapbooking Store or perhaps just have a group of friends over for an in home crop, we have a wonderful hop here to inspire you as you pull out your pictures, papers, embellishments and the ever important adhesive to hold all these together and tell your stories! We have a great group of bloggers and scrapbookers just like you joining us today so I hope you will take a moment to visit each one.

Setting the mood for SUMMER CELEBRATIONS with Clearsnap

Over on the Clearsnap blog, Jennifer Priest has shared a mood board for may! Its sherbert-y and YUMMY!

I couldn't resists making a few quick cards featuring the colors and that laid back, summer fun feel.

To create these cards I used a variety of vivid ColorBox inks with ColorBox Art Daubers and a couple fun stencils.

The Art Daubers are the perfect tool to get the most out of a detailed stencil while flawlessly blending your inks.

The ice cream cones were no challenge even with the layering of two colors. The cones even have some really cool shadowing that just magically happened independent of my efforts. LOVE IT!

Supply List:
Pigment Ink Colors:
ColorBox Art Daubers
Grosgrain Ribbon


I was having so much fun with this color scheme, it worked its way into another project. Here is a sneak peak of a card made using the incredible Art Wheel to layer gorgeous colors from a ColorBox Queue. Check back soon for a new tutorial with details on this artful and easy technique!
