Digital Scrapbook Inspiration - Sparkle and Shine

Hello blog friends! I am up on my little ol' blog today sharing with you a digital scrapbooking layout! I really love using scrapbooking products from companies that have physical products as well as digital products. Earlier this week Simple Stories release their "Beautiful" digital line and I just knew I had to create a layout with it asap! I decided to use a photo of my sweet 20 year old daughter who is the epitome of "Beautiful" to me - so this layout is dedicated to her.
 I LOVE using sketches as jumping off points for my layouts and I really loved the layout of the August 15th sketch over on Stuck?! Sketches. Here is the sketch I used as inspiration:

Sketches are NOT just for paper scrapbooking! I turn to Laura's Sketches time and time again when I am looking for how to start a page. So helpful and her sketches are always adorable and really are my style which makes it easy to find a sketch to use. If you haven't stopped by the Stuck?! Sketches site - you should!! 
Thanks bunches for stopping by for a peek at my layout!  Happy Crafting!

Back to School Supply Caddy

Hi there - it's Tya and I am up on the blog today sharing with you all my Back to School project. I have to admit - I kind of am obsessed with all the back to school products from the pencils, to the crayons to the markers and notebooks - I love it all! But- what I don't love are those boring plastic pencil boxes that hide all of the goodies. So I decided to make a fun desk organizer using my

I used a Desk Organizer cut file designed by Lori Whitlock and cut out the base from Kraft cardstock. I then used a piece of  This Way Men pattern paper from the Toy Box collection from Carta Bella. I assembled my box with some sticky strip tape to make sure that it stays nice and sturdy. I also added a plaid sticker strip to the front of the box. The sticker is found on the Element Sticker.

 To decorate the box front, I used a few different Echo Park cut files that are in the Silhouette shop. To make the label, I cut out a label from some blue solid paper. I utilized the Print and Cut feature on the Silhouette to make the "School Supplies" title. I added the title to the blue label and then added pop dots to the back of the blue label and added the label to the box.


 I added some fun stickers from the Element Stickers to the label with pop dots and and also added an enamel star and some enamel dots to complete the decorations.

On the top section of the box, I added a piece of blue twine  and glued the ends to the sides of the box. I then added some of the chipboard banner pieces from the Chipboard Shapes to the top of the twine. 

Then fill up the organizer with any of your favorite school supplies! No boring plastic boxes here! I hope I have inspired you to make of of these cute boxes for your little students! Happy crafting everyone!

Supplies used:
-This Way Men paper
-Toy Box Element Sticker Sheet
-Toy Box Chipboard
-Toy Box Enamel Shapes
-Toy Box Enamel Dots
-Go See Explore Solid Papers
-Carta Bella Kraft Cardstock
-White Cardstock
-Blue Twine

Doodlebug Design Odds and Ends Challenge - Clothespin Photo Holders with Tya

Hi Doodlebug fans! It's Tya here and I am closing out our awesome and super fun Odds and Ends Challenge that we have had going on the blog the last couple of weeks. It was so fun to use this amazing product  and I challenged myself to use it in a new and inventive way other than a card or scrapbook layout. What I came up with are these cute photo holders made from giant clothespins that I picked up at my local craft supply store.  I used the adorable Dragon Tails line to make these and used the Odds and Ends, pattern paper, clothespins, mini stickers, This and That Sticker Sheet and enamel dots.
These clothespins are something I have had pinned on my "Projects I Love" board on Pinterest for ages and I am glad I got a chance to finally make these. To make the clothespins I painted them with some acrylic paint and then added various pattern papers to the front of the clothespins.

 I then printed off a few photos and then had fun decorating each of the clothespins in different ways. Here are some close ups:








These clothespins would be great as party favors or party decor - or even fun for a little gift. I hope I have inspired you to make some of these cute photo holders of your own. The Odds and Ends come with so many different pieces that you will have plenty to create so many different projects! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
