As a 12×12 scrapbooker, it took me awhile to see the value of the 6×6 paper pad that so many paper companies offer along with their collections, but now I LOVE them! I love mixing larger patterns from the 12 x 12 collection (for example, the large red chevron print on this page), with the smaller scale prints from the coordinating 6×6 paper pad (the rest of the papers used on this page).
Again, this page was inspired by a shape I saw in an interior design magazine. Home décor really inspires me … it always has. :) I think my husband is thankful I love scrapbooking so much, because if I didn’t, I might be trying out all the fun things I see on larger surfaces … like the walls in our home. Hehe! It’s nice to have a 12″ surface to experiment on.

I used the My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Presh collection for this page. The 2×6 journal card was the perfect title. I could have used the open white rectangle for the journaling, but opted to add three punched and layered butterflies instead to carry the pink around the page in a visual triangle.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away? We will be eating dinner at my in-laws house with 35+ people. Should be lots of fun!
Baking gingerbread cookies is one of my kids favorite Christmas traditions. They really love the tactile experience of rolling and cutting the dough and it’s fun to see how serious and creative they get when it comes time to decorate them!
My Mind’s Eye Mistletoe Magic Collection: Ledger paper, Mistletoe Magic paper, 6×6 paper pad, Chipboard Accessories, Stickers Accessories, Decorative Brads, Decorative Buttons, Decorative Tape
I used the 6×6 paper pad and decorative tape to do a lot of layering on this page. I had a hard time deciding on which patterns to use! Too many cute ones. Hehe!
I love when MME includes wood buttons in their decorative button packs. I especially love layering a fun brad on top of the ones shapes like a donut.
The icons and artwork in this set are just so fun. I’m a girl that gravitates towards vintage icons with a traditional flair. Can’t go wrong there! Here I layered three of the chipboard pieces together in a little vignette to accent the bottom of my page.
Now … to get started on Christmas shopping …
See you again soon!
Fall is my favorite season. We’ve been lucky to be have enjoyed a longer-than-usual fall season here in Utah … but it has finally taken a stormy turn and I’m afraid that our Fall ship has sailed. Oh, well. Atleast I can still enjoy the colors of the season with my scrappy products!
FALL IS HERE

The title was cut in two layers using a word art cut file by Lori Whitlock and my Silhouette Cameo machine. I embossed it using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and my Cuttlebug machine. The middle section is backed with a bit of orange cardstock and I added the chipboard heart and button over the letter “A.” The “How Sweet It Is” banner phrase was cut out from the MME Sweet 4×6 Journal Card.
I handcut out a zig zag from the Shine paper for a bit more texture at the bottom and then added the layered sticker flowers to the bottom corner of my photo. I’m falling in love with the Tiny Word Stickers lately! They are the perfect little accent to add to other embellishments.
Have a great week!
Happy Saturday! The snow is flying out my window … the first snowstorm of the season, which means I am singing Christmas tunes as I putter around the house today.
I thought I would hop on and share a quick pocket page that I created using the My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Charm collection.

I gotta tell you about the photo in the top right corner of the page below … This page is about a weekend getaway we took to St. George, Utah. St. George is in the southern part of Utah and is warm year-round, making it a popular destination for the retirement crowd. We laughed our guts out when we went to Arby’s on the way out of town and found two scooter-riding sweethearts ordering their food in front of us. Tons of people were stopping to take their photo … they just looked so funny ordering at the menu board and picking up their food at the window … Only in St. George!
The pennant flag stickers on this page are actually the tails cut from the arrow stickers contained on the 5×7 Sticker Sheet. I simply cut off the arrow part of the sticker. If the tail didn’t already have a notch, I used my scissors to add one. This is a great way to get more mileage out of the arrows in your stash (especially if you aren’t a huge arrow-user like I am).
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
