Tapestry in a Planner, welcome to the Pep Rally!

This is a very special time of year for me. Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday for many years.  It was always a time when family got together and there was everyone's favorite food (ahem, dessert) and no pressure for anything except to take home leftovers. I cut into this lovely kit to decorate my planner this month. I LOVE the happy gleaming gold accents! Check this out!

I believe in Rainbows

My instagram has been really busy this month with the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I've been having tons of fun, but really haven't made many projects, just practicing my coloring. But last night I finally got around to making a page from a photo that's been waiting on me. I started out by gathering up some Shimelle items I've had hoarded (and I've recently picked up some new stuff recently). I knew before getting started that I wanted to use that rainbow heart paper, it's vellum and so lovely! I tried it out on several other background papers and while I loved it on lots of things, it needed something to keep those hearts from drowning on another pattern and white cardstock just was not cutting it. So I found this awesome specialty paper covered in gold hearts along the bottom. The Keller paper is that awesome paper with bright hearts in pink on pink from the original collection, but on the back there is a section that is a soft gray so that is what I used to emphasize the heart vellum. I love how it looks, especially because where it isn't backing you can see the smaller heart print on my background paper behind it. I matted the photo with the paper called Frappe from the True Stories collection, the reverse side of this lovely navy print has cameras on it. I combined stickers from both collections and used some of the cut apart sheet from True Stories called Latte for page accents. I puzzled for a bit over what to put my journalling on, then I just took some white cardstock and cut out a half a heart shape and used Fossilized Amber Distress ink to make it a lovely yellowy color, I used water to distress the ink a bit, then journalled on my block. Those lovely red glitter Thickers in the Fitzgerald Font combined with tile letters from the Shimelle Collection stickers make my title. I really love how this turned out.

I'm editing a video on pulling this layout together so stay tuned to my youtube channel :)!

September 2015 Pep Rally Featuring : Capture

Loved working with the Cocoa Daisy Kit this month! This is the first layout I've finished, but I've been working in my planner with this kit as well and really love the paper and embellies!!! I also love the combo of sequins that was included in the kits. I got some new stencils recently while I was on vacation. So I added some stenciling to the background of this awesome woodgrain. I also used gelatos in two shades of pink to the black crepe paper that was included in the kit. I've done this before on a layout from the Clique Into Color kit/crop and LOVED the effect. I was so excited to see the crepe paper in this months kit as it's a texture that I really like using! I hope you enjoy today's layout, I usually crop my photos closer but I've been working up to the edges and I like the detail included so I cropped around it today. Have fun seeing what everyone created, and if you subscribe to the kits, you should be a part of the Pep Rally too! If you were just stopping by my blog today be sure and hop along, you could win the September Kit for yourself!

Quick Gift Packaging using items from SpiegelMomScraps!

Wow, it's been too long! I've had a bit of illness and then a lovely and wonderful VACATION which was sorely needed!!! I hope you have all been having a lovely summer, mine has been different. But my vacation with DH was LOVELY and I am now a bit refreshed and ready to go again.
I brought back some candy cigarettes for my co-workers (they are all over 21 so I'm not influencing minors). And decided they needed to be dressed up a bit to be gifted.
