Soup for the (Crafting) Soul

I saw the Homemade 6 Bean Soup line from Jillibean Soup this week and just had to have it!

I dug up some pictures I had of me crafting away from a few years ago.  Scrapbooking is such a huge part of my life and I wanted to have fun with the handmade, crafty feel of this paper line.

I had lots of fun with this one and was able to layer tons of embellishments
(which always makes me feel justified in my scrapbook spending. 
See honey, I do need all of these things!)

I used some great K and Co die-cuts that have been in my 'random stuff' drawer for years,
 along with LOTS of glittery cardstock flowers.

Here's a quick look at the Jillian Bean Soup collection, too.  It's super cute!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting!

Warm Christmas Memories

One of the wonderful things about scrapbooking is that the holidays are never really over.  You get a chance to play with the pictures and fun holiday-themed paper and embellishments long after the last Christmas gift is opened.

We had such a great time seeing the family back in Las Vegas this year.  The weather was beautiful and the time spent together was magical.

This layout was done using the new Bo Bunny Father Christmas line as well as lots of fabulous Prima flowers. 

This page was all about layers for me.  I used several layers just in the background cardstock alone and then added here and there until I found a collage that I liked (the page weighs like 5 pounds! lol).

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season!  Have lots of fun scrappin' those memories!
