Happy Fall, Y'all! It's Rebecca, hosting today's blog post. The crisp cool air of fall had come for a few days last week. It inspired me to create the following layout...

                                                              "Bushels of Fun"









I began by free hand cutting two borders from the light green paper from Secret Garden.




I then attached the blue dot pattern to my base page in a light brown cardstock.



I cut strips of varying widths and attached them to the base page. I used a border punch on one of the strips.


I free hand cut my tree from brown cardstock. Stamped an image that resembled bark on it and inked the edges. I used foam tape to attach it to the page.  


I also punched out apples and attached them to the tree along with the bushel basket. So quick and so much fun!


I hope you are inspired to scrap a fall layout today. Thanks for visiting the blog!

 I usually scrap double page layouts but every now and then, a picture just screams at me to be a single page layout. This picture of my grandson at the beach was one that did!


                                                              "Sunny Days"








The page comes together quickly. Ink the edges of your papers and I used ink to change the sun to orange. Then I placed it in the corner of the base page.



Next, I began to build my page with patterned paper from the bottom. Next, I placed the bracket piece. Then I placed a 1/2 inch piece of yellow paper flush to the edge of the bracket.




I matted my photo and placed it on the page. Adding the title next, as well as the flowers and greenery. I cut the phrase down to fit and inked the edges.










I hope you continue to have "sunny days" wherever you may be in the world! Thanks for visiting the blog today!

Hi, everyone! It's Rebecca hosting today's blog post. The summer flew by and here we are, nearly at the end of August! I am almost finished scrapbooking my grandson's first vacation. I decided to use Club Q to create a mini album, perfect for my daughter-in-law's purse.





                                                     "Ocean Themed Mini Album"







  • I took the five envelopes from the kit and scored one of them 5 inches.
  • I took the other four envelopes and placed them in the trimmer with the score line at the 3/4 inch mark. Trim excess.
  • Add scor-tape to the hinges.
  • Stack the envelopes together and remove the tape to adhere one to another.
  • You should have one hinge left with tape on it.



  • Cut both ends at an angle of stacked envelope.
  • Remove tape and attach to the inside of the first envelope with the score mark.
  • Choose colors of ink and color all the page edges and the center of each page.
  • Choose the paper from the kit for each page. Ink edges and apply to pages.
  • I took the twine and adhered half of it to the front of the album with scor-tape. 
  • I placed the frame over the top of the twine and then placed the center of the frame with more scor-tape creating the wrap around closure.




Now it is all about decoration! I used some but not all of the frames.I kept it very simple since it is made for a purse.








I kept one envelope opened so that I could place more photo mats!




I love Club Q! The possibilities are truly endless! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

I love to use cameras and travel themes when I am needing a masculine card. Here is my contribution to the blog hop....

Sn@p!






I die cut the SVG from Treasure Box Designs using my cricut machine. (I decided to not use the trees and circle)

I inked the edges of the pieces and assembled

I used Navigator Paper Pack from Quick Quotes Scrapbooking Company. I cut the paper at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, making sure to keep the continent intact.  I cut a circle out of the second layer of paper and used what remained.

I matted the Sn@p! onto a piece or coordinating paper and rounded the corners. Added brads to three of the corners and over laid a fussy cut circle over the fourth corner. I simple "Happy Birthday" phrase is stamped on the inside.







You have reached the END of the Blog Hop! I hope you had as much fun as we did!


Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.

Good day, everyone!  Today I am sharing a layout I made using paper from Secret Garden. I found these two pictures of my son, Elijah, and his first tooth. Oh, how time goes by so fast! This chubby, cheeked little boy is now 14 years old and 6 feet tall!



"My First Tooth"












  •  To begin, I grabbed a green cardstock for my base.
  • Next, I layered my patterned paper in the center.



  • I trimmed two pieces of the celery green patterned paper from the collection at 1 1/4 x 12
  • I trimmed the green stripe from the striped patterned paper  and included the white on both sides.
  • Next, I trimmed the green stripe in half and glued one half to the bottom of the celery piece. Repeat, for the second green collection


  • I gathered my embellishments: teeth that were die cut and inked, cardstock phrase trimmed and inked.
  • I made my last embellishment using a SVG and cutting it using the paper from Secret Garden

  • I added a fishtail banner to the top and an arrow to the bottom of the layout.
  • A little ric-rac was added to the arrow before the completed title.
  • Add foam tape to title and attach



  • Finally, the inked teeth and cardstock phrase were added.


Secret Garden Paper Pack is such a universal collection. It is a must have for any scrapbooker! No matter the event...Secret Garden can help you get it scrapped!
Oh, what fun it is to go back and remember days gone by! Isn't that why we all enjoy this hobby?
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
