Easter Blessings Two-Pager

Happy Easter Weekend! I love this time of year. The green returning to the earth, the birds chirping, the warmth of the sunshine … it all brings such a feeling of happiness and hope and new beginnings. I hope this weekend you are able to spend some time with your families and to reflect on the Savior’s love for all of us. I am so grateful to know that He lives and loves me. I’m grateful for the Atonement and the opportunity we have to continually better ourselves through it. I’m grateful for the burdens and sadness He was willing to lift off of my shoulders. I’m grateful for the strength He gives me. I am grateful for Him.

This weekend we will be having Easter Egg hunts and Easter dinner with family and taking lots of pictures to remember these special times. Here is a two-page layout of last year’s Easter morning using adorable cut files by SVGCuts.com. (For full instructions and sizes for this project, visit the SVG Cuts Blog HERE.)



SVG Cuts Collections Used:


The adorable bunnies and egg border on this layout are from the Spring Bunnies SVG Collection. Aren’t they just super sweet?! I just love them and couldn’t wait to use them on this page.

The “Easter” title word is actually a FREEBIE that you can find HERE on ths SVG Cuts site. After cutting it out, I trimmed away the word “blessings” and added it back in with letter stickers (the original file was too tall for the space that I wanted to use it in).


The clouds come from the adorable Ryan’s Playdate SVG Collection, and then sun is from the amazing Peony Cottage SVG Collection. Both of these kits have incredible dimensional files that I will be using at another time, but I love that I can mix and match the elements from all of them to create something new and add them to my scrapbook pages.


These papers are all from the American Crafts My Girl Paper Pad. I picked it up at the annual American Crafts Warehouse Sale in Provo, Utah, but I have also seen it an JoAnn’s Craft Store (so you can use a coupon on it, if you’d like to pick it up for yourself). I love the sweet, soft colors and patterns!


Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my work today. Have a beautiful Easter weekend!



My Crazy Fun Family

The best thing about my family is that they are so much fun to hang out with! I love how silly they can be together. We just have a great time being together! A few summers ago we went on a road trip. When we arrived at our destination, the kids were so happy to be there, that they jumped out of the car and started running and jumping around. I caught this fun picture of them and decided to feature it by itself on this next page using the Noel Mignon Social Butterfly kit.



Circles are a really fun way to frame out a single photo. Here I cut out a large circle from the Crate Paper Boys Rule Race Track paper.

I also had some fun with chevrons on this page. The two sections at the top of the page were hand cut from patterned papers. I accented them with a pair of Jillibean Soup Wood Sprinkles (LOVE these things!).



Do you have a silly photo that deserves to be center-stage on a layout? Well, pull it out! Print it at a nice, big 5×7 size and have fun recording that memory!

Have a great weekend!


Project Life Happy

Another Project Life set that Lisa Bearnson sold on last month’s 24-Hour Craft day was the Happy edition. Unfortunately, this edition sold out right away, but I still wanted to share the pages I made with it. This set was sold exclusively in Australia and was offered for the first time in the US on HSN. I’m not sure if it is available anywhere else at the moment. :( It’s too bad. I loved this kit and would love for you to own it, too! If I hear or read anything about it being available somewhere, I will be sure to let you know.

Here is what one of my pages look like with just the cards and journaling tucked into the pockets.


But if you are like me and like to add all of the additional doo-dads and die cuts … you can spend a little more time raiding your stash and make your pocket pages look like this.





On this spread I pulled out the purple and blue colors from the kit.






Okay, I’ll be back with a couple more tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!


Spring-Inspired Card

I have a Springtime card up on the HSN blog today using the AMAZINGĀ Next Dimension 3D Embellishment Sticker Kit from Lisa Bearnson. I adore this kit! Just look at the variety of dimensional stickers that are in this kit!


Here’s a closer look at each sheet.







I put together a quick card using these adorable stickers and my sewing machine.


Feel free to use a different sentiment to fit your needs.

Have a great day!
