Noel Mignon: It’s Snow Fun!


Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Can you believe it?! We received our first dusting of snow here in Utah, which of course put me right into the holiday spirit! I’ve been listening to Christmas music and putting up decorations all weekend. I’m hoping to finish them up today.

I was so happy to have my Noel Mignon Mistletoe & Holly kit sitting on my desk to play with this weekend. I put together my first page using this kit and a few pictures of my son from Christmas morning last year. Here is what I came up with.


For this page, I went with a woodsy color scheme, using the woodgrain snowman paper by Echo Park Paper to pull out my colors. I paired it the dark green Shimelle paper for the background.


I decided to create a die cut title. This image is by Lettering Delights from the Snow Village set. I used a polka dot folder to emulate falling snow.

Recently, I scored some snowflake metal dies at Tuesday Morning. I put them to use here, accenting them with sequins from the kit … and then of course, I had to cut out the super-cute October Afternoon birdies to sit on top of the photo. They make me so happy everytime I see them!


The kit this month comes with several frames and sequins. I decided to use them to create a shaker box to place underneath the title. I used a bit of bookpaper from my stash to back it.

I love how it looks here and had fun making it! I know I’ll be creating more shaker boxes for other projects this month! They would be so cute in a pocket page spread, or on the front of a card!


I anchored my design with one of the cut apart borders from the Echo Park border paper. This one had a preprinted flower design along with notebook paper lines. It made the perfect place to write my journaling!


I added a few more die cut snowflakes and accented them with the wood buttons and sequins from the kit.

Free Download from Me to You!


Happy Thanksgiving! I wanted to hop on today and just tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for you! Thank you for inspiring me to create and to share. It’s a small gesture, but today I wanted to give you all a little something.

Ever since taking taking a Handlettering Class by my good friend, Tracie Claiborne, I have been obsessed with practicing! So, I created a FREE cutfile for you of the words “thankful” and “family.” Enjoy!

And a little page inspiration using the cut file to go along with it.


Remember the last few scraps of the Pebbles collection I showed you in THIS POST … I managed to create a two-pager from them. Yeah! I did add in a sheet of woodgrain patterned paper by Bella Blvd. to anchor things a bit, but I really like how it came together!


Hmmmm. I might go back and add in a bit of stitching around the edges … Yeah! I think so, stitching would be a fun addition here!


I hope you enjoy my handwritten words on this page! They were pretty fun to create for you!


I found these adorable sunflower stickers at Hobby Lobby yesterday by The Paper Studio. I love how they have a bit of sparkle to them with the glittered petals and the rhinestone centers.


They went great with the American Crafts Hayride stickers, Pebbles Stickers, and Imaginisce wood buttons.


My stamping underneath the “Family” word got a little messed up, but I decided to just run with it. :)

Finding Inspiration: Using a Magazine Ad as Inspiration for a Page Design


I read somewhere once that the problem with being a creative person is that we can see the “potential” in everything. Most of the time it serves us very well, so you might be asking how that can be a problem?

Well, the problem arises when you are trying to clean out your house. It’s so hard to get rid of things! Haha! For example, I came across a stack of old magazines. I always enjoy looking at the colors and images of home decor magazines, but since these are from 2010, I figured it was probably time to let them go.


I then made the mistake of picking up the top one and flipping through the pages. I came across an ad for wheat thins that grabbed my attention right away. I knew it would make the perfect scrapbook page!

I printed out a series of square photos, took out my Noel Mignon Golden Delicious Classic Kit and set to work. Here is what I made.



I arranged the square photos down the left side of the page like the crackers in the ad. I then needed to figure out what I could sprinkle in between the photos to mimic the cheese curls.

Remember the floral paper from my kit sorting video? I did decide to cut out the leaves and use them tucked around the photos. It took awhile, but I really like how they look!



The strip along the bottom of the page was inspired by the row of photos in the ad. I placed my title and journaling in similar spots as the text of the ad.

In retrospect, I wish I would have taken time to create sentence strips instead of writing directly on the background paper. I was going for a subtle look, but when I erased the penciled journaling underneath, the ink on the paper lifted a bit and left a lighter area … not a look I was going for, unfortunately. Oh, well!



It’s hard to tell, but I used the leaf stencil from the kit to add a subtle pattern of leaves behind the photos, title, and journaling. You might be able to catch a glimpse of them here-and-there in these shots.

The “Autumn” word is a cut file from the Silhouette store. I combined it with the gold letter stickers from the kit and then used tiny letter tile stickers (Cosmo Cricket) for the word “at.”



SUPPLIES: Noel Mignon Nov. 2015 Golden Delicious Kit, Patterned Paper (Carta Bella, We R Memory Keepers), Letter Stickers (American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket), Label Cut Aparts/Wood Pieces(Evalicious), Border Sticker (October Afternoon), Lace Trim (Maya Road), Cork Stickers (Seven Paper), Enamel Dots (My Mind’s Eye), Stencil (Echo Park Paper), Silhouette Cameo Machine, adhesive, inks.

Hmmm. Maybe I can bear to part with that 2010 magazine now that I have made use of it one more time. … I better check to see if there are any other ads that could inspire me in there before I do. *giggle*

See you again soon!


Leaving Out the Orange


Happy weekend! I can’t believe Halloween is in just seven days. I can’t wait!

Even though we don’t get a lot of trick-or-treaters (we live on the end of a Dead End Street), I enjoy the magical feeling of Halloween. The older kids don’t collect candy anymore, but they always volunteer to take my youngest trick-or-treating. It’s an excuse to dress up and still enjoy being out with all of the ghosts and goblins. :)

Me? I stay home with a warm pot of soup answering the door and watching Halloween shows on T.V. It’s awesome!

Instead of using orange and black on these next two Halloween pages, I was inspired by my kids’ costumes in the photos and went with a red and black color scheme. Perfect for my little vampire and zombie, right?!



For this page, I used another sketch by Laura Whitaker as inspiration. I tweaked it a bit to accommodate my larger photos. After putting it together, I realized that my grouping was too low on the page. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who does that. LOL!)

Instead of trying to move everything up, I added a strip of pattern along the top of the page. Then, to tie the strip and the grouping together, I stamped a spiderweb in the corner of the background paper.

I love it! Spiderwebs always add a little spookiness, don’t you think?

My son had a blast creating his zombie costume last year. He didn’t want to just tear holes in his old clothes. No! That would be too easy! He meticulously singed the edges of each of the tears with a lighter. His patience paid off. He looked great!


I’m not a fan of the gory part of Halloween. Infact, this is the first year that my son has dressed up as something “scary.” No worries, I kept it “cute” with this funny little die cut I created with my Silhouette Cameo with this shape.

I even added a feathery tuft of hair to the top. Hehe!
