Noel Mignon: Feeding the Birds


Hello webbie friends! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog this week with my final page for the month using the All Fall kits.

This week the design team is challenging ourselves to create a project using the following recipe: 1 sheet of cardstock, 2 alphabets, 3 photos, 4 patterned papers, and 5 embellishments.

Here is what I came up with!



First, let me tell you a little bit about these photos. A few summers ago, Mr. Owen found three lost baby birds in our neighborhood. He was so worried about them, so he carefully scooped them up in a large bucket from our garage and brought them to our back patio, where he could watch over them (he was worried the neighbor’s cat would eat them) and feed them every few hours.

He faithfully fed those little birds all weekend long until we noticed that the mother had found them and had started to bring food to them, as well! I was so proud of Owen’s caring heart and diligence in his bird-sitting!

I began this page with a sheet of white cardstock from my stash. I recently ordered these fun Stampin’ Up stamps and wanted to build a background with them for this page. (Stamps used are Watercolor Wash background stamp and Gorgeous Grunge. I used them with Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe ink)


I love the look of artsy backgrounds … but am not very good at creating them. Thank heavens for brilliant companies who create products that help me get a similar look! Woohoo!


While I was creating this page … the song “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins kept playing in my mind … so, that is what I used for my title! I used the two alphabets that were included in the Noel Mignon All Fall Classic Kit. I especially love those dark yellow tile letter stickers by Pretty Little Studio… so cute!


For my three photos, I had one of Owen feeding the birds, one of the baby birds all snuggly in their bucket, and then I was lucky enough to get a shot of the mother bird feeding them as well.


Three of the four patterned papers were used in strips as a band across the page. I used the fourth patterned paper to mat my photos.


For the five embellishments, I used five chipboard leaves from the Noel Mignon All Fall Daily Diary kit … I REALLY tried to leave it to those five leaves, but couldn’t resist popping in one of the wood circle embellishments from the Classic kit, and also a few gold photo corners from my stash. I’m not counting the journal card (All Fall Daily Diary kit) or the glitter dots (these were from the Thicker Alpha sticker sheet, so they can go towards being a part of the two alphas, right?! Boo-yah!).

This was such a fun challenge and forced me to focus on adding supplies to my project in a very purposeful way. Give it a try! I think you’ll enjoy it!

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Carta Bella: Fall Drive Layout


I thought I would finish up this week with a couple more Fall projects before heading into the holidays … This first one was created with the Carta Bella Autumn collection.


I used the ledger paper for my background. I’ve mentioned it in a past process video, but I LOVE that this paper says “Gordon’s Pumpkin Farm” across the top because my dad’s name is Gordon.🙂


Aren’t the colors of the embellishments and patterns in this collection to die for?!! I had a lot of fun clustering them together at the bottom of the page.


I cut several of the cross-stitch leaves from the Fall Stitching Paper to use as accents around the layout.



SUPPLIES: Carta Bella Natural White Felt Designer Cardstock, Carta Bella Autumn Collection; Fall Foliage Paper, Falling Leaves Paper, Fall Forest Paper, 4×6 Journaling Cards Paper, Fall Stitching Paper, 12×12 Element Stickers, 6×13 Chipboard, Orange Gingham Decorative Tape, Ephemera Pack, Echo Park Fall is in the Air 12×12 Alpha Stickers, Ribbon, Brown Crochet Twine, Wood button, Computer & Printer for Journaling, Adhesive, Trimmer Scissors.

For printable step-by-step instructions for this page, visit the Echo Park website HERE.


For this Halloween page, I pulled out some pretty papers I had in my stash from the Oct. 2015 Felicity Jane “That One Day” kit. I feel like that floral paper was MADE for these photos. Swoon!



These photos of my daughter are from Halloween 2015. We found that blue dress at a second-hand store by a stroke of luck. We added a pinafore we bought online, a pair of white tights, black shoes, and a black headband and she was ready to go. “I’m Late! I’m Late! for a very important date!” Hehe!


Anytime I work with one of my Felicity Jane kits it’s mandatory that I fussy-cut the floral paper.😀😀😀 I love the florals! And love to make them center stage on the pages I do with these kits.


I’m also in love with the hexagon dot paper. The blue is so pretty!


I added some stitching at the top of the page and through the letter stickers for a bit of texture.

Thank you for coming by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Noel Mignon: Fall


As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend in the USA, I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for YOU! Thank you for reading my posts, your kinds comments, support, and for inspiring me to keep creating. I love the online scrapbook community! You are all just such lovely people! Thank you for being a part of my life.😀

Over the next few days I’m working on posting the remainder of the Fall themed projects I have created this year (although, in reality, you might still see a few trickle in here-and-there over the next week) before tackling my holiday crafting.

Today I am up on the Noel Mignon blog with a two-page layout featuring the November All Fall Classic and All Fall Daily Diary kits. I also created a process video that is listed below, if you would like to see how this page came together.



Here is a closer look at some of the details of the left side of the layout.


I had so much fun fussy-cutting out the leaves from the Pretty Little Studio “Oakley Avenue” vellum paper. They looked so cute scattered at the feet of my forest friends.


I cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the cut file “Fall by Loni Stevens” (Design #15233) from the Silhouette Design Store. I embossed it using the Woodgrain 5×7 embossing folder by Darice.


And now for the right side of this page spread …


Of course I have to add a little bit of aqua to every page I do! I adore this flair badge from Pretty Little Studio!


And how cute is this little fox from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air collection. I cut him out of the 3×4 cut apart sheet included with the All Fall Daily Diary Kit.


Mr. Hedgie, by Simple Stories, makes his home in the top right corner of the page. I added more leaves, a script word sticker, heart stickers, and a couple of sparkly decorative brads.


Thanks so much for coming by! I hope you leave feeling inspired to create something fun!

Stashbuster: U of U


As much as I love to shop for the lastest-and-greatest scrapbook supplies, I also really LOVE to use up the things I already have in my stash. I frequently go through my things and pass along things that I am tired of or that I have leftovers of, but there are a lot of “older” things that I still really LOVE … and want to use someday.

I love to scrap with collections, but I also really love to add new life to older patterns and supplies by combining them in new ways. An easy way to do this is to select a color scheme and then pull together items in those colors.


My husband and a co-worker both attended the University of Utah and had the opportunity to go and be a part of the football game on Halloween last year. Someone snapped this cute snapshot of the two of them and I wanted to add it to our family scrapbook.

I pulled out the plaid paper (My Mind’s Eye) first, because it incorporated the blue and red from the photo. That was my starting point for pulling in everything else.


The background paper is a sheet from the Echo Park Paper Little Boy collection. The ledger pattern works perfectly here because of the university theme.

The other patterns that I pulled in were the navy chevron (Pebbles Inc.) and the red graphic pattern (Bella Blvd.). I chose kraft and cork as accent colors because it reminded me of a football.


I used my Cricut and cricut cartridges to cut the title. The Us are from the Varsity Letter cartridge, and the “of” was created using the lower case script letters from the Opposites Attract cartridge. I spelled out “Alma Mater” using October Afternoon letter stickers.


That cute football was cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a football shape by Echo Park Paper found in the Silhouette online store. The cork stars are by Ali Edwards and the brads are various ones I’ve collected over the years from My Mind’s Eye … the glitter brads are by Darice, *I think.*

I added some punched glitter paper silver stars below the large cork stars to give them a bit more presence.


Have you ever scrapped a page using a color scheme instead of a collection?! It was a lot of fun and a great way to use up the paper scraps floating around in my scrap bin.
