At least when their mom makes them! Another Jillibean on Thursday page for you. I combined a bunch of greens and pinks from Soup Staples II and Happy Camper Stew to make this preppy Spring Page. The green alphas are both from Jillibean as well and the title was cut on my Cameo.
I mixed up my usual page by putting everything at an angle. The journaling block was stamped with Just A Note notebook paper stamp and Sno Cone Ink.
Thanks for stopping by!

I had the honor of creating a special double page for the new April issue of Papercrafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. I love creating two-page layouts to tell a story. Having room for more photos is always a good thing!
I used a lot of Jillibean Soup products on this page, including the handy pre-cut Kraft Frames placemats to accent my photos. The paper collection is Cold Avocado Soup one of my favorites to date. Navy is my favorite color for scrapbooking. It makes for great boy pages.

I continued the photo frame idea throughout my page by using mini frames, camera wood veneers and a film strip at the bottom.

More Jillibean on Thursday! I know it’s quite past the season but this quick and simple page could be adapted for any type of theme.
To be honest…the Holidays are never my events to document. My pictures are always horrible and I never take enough. I guess this is a good thing because I am more focused on my family and the Holiday rather than begging my boys to take pictures. A task they are usually quite bored with.
I have quite the combo of Jillibean papers on this one. Fresh Vegetable Soup, Chilled Cucumber, Cold Avocado Soup, and a little Happy Camper. That’s the bonus of having versatile B side papers. They can be combined into what your need is.
The cute little feathers to the right? Those were cut from my Feathers and Arrows Die-namics found right here!
It’s snowing here again. For what seems like the millionth day in a row. I was over it before Chirstmas so needless to say I haven’t been a happy camper these past two months. Worst Winter EVER. To combat my seasonal misery I am dreaming of vacation and white sandy beaches!
I put this together very quickly. My photos were not the best but wanted to make sure we remembered how beautiful the beach was in South Carolina. (Despite the unseasonable cold there as well!) Emmitt and I are sneaking for a quick trip to Naples, FL next week which cannot come fast enough in my mind!
Ashley and Teri decided to surprise me today with some “Laina Love”. Seriously how cool are these girls?!? Check out what each my very cool friends have posted on their blogs today!
Here’s a good challenge for you! Ever try to make an entire layout without any patterned paper? Head on over to the My Favorite Things blog today to see my 12×12 page created with card stock, stamps and dies only!
You can also get a good look at how I used the new Smart Phone Die-namics as a journaling solution!
I have so many to share I should probably do this every Thursday for the next several months!
I alternate between 12×12 and 8.5×11 pages frequently. The boys’ school albums are all done in 8.5×11. This format works really well for quick pages and adding in school documents and photos. The past month I have been busy getting both Cooper and Emmitt’s books up to date from last school year and this year. I don’t photograph and scan everything I put into their albums. Many of the pages are filled with their writings, drawings, and photos of their friends and activities. While most of the images are not “great” photos, they are great snapshots of their lives. I try to put as much as I can into these albums so that someday they can look back and see what they were interested in and who they were friends with at the time.
Lots more Jillibean Cold Avocado used on this page. The title was cut on my Silhouette using Ultra and Thirsty font.
Only five days until the February release at My Favorite Things! Last month I introduced my Cute Cameras II that included a small smart phone. As much as I use my trusty iPhone for pretty much everything, I felt it needed it’s own Die-namics. Smart Phone Die-namics and the coordinating Friend Request stamp set will go on sale Feb. 11 at the MFT Store.
I think the sentiments are versatile for so many different types of projects, card and more! Be sure to check back on February 15 when I will share a special page I made using both of these products.
Be sure to head on over to the MFT Blog to see the Design Team’s incredible creations using this set as well as a chance to win a $75 prize from MFT!
I had a bunch of projects go up on the Jillibean blog that past couple of months. Now I have more free time to blog, I thought it was a good time to share here as well!
We went to Charleston, SC for the first time at Spring Break with our very good friends and neighbors. Both of our boys were playing in a Varsity Baseball Tournament so we decided to make a family vacation out of it. We all fell in love with the city. A beautiful beach, great places to explore and some really great restaurants made our trip very fun despite the boys’ defeat in their tournament.
I used lots of Jillibean Cold Avocado Soup to create the page. The greens and blues were a perfect match for my photo. I cut the title on my Cameo machine using Voyage font.
