July Blog Hop | Gossamer Blue

Hello and welcome to the July Team Blog Hop for Gossamer Blue!

 I've always loved colour. Bright, fun and happy papers and goodies make my day and inspire me to create. The hybrid project below was created by printing journaling directly onto my layout using a bold font in Photoshop. I am all for stretching my kits (especially my papers) to the max and this really helps with that.

My fellow team members have amazing projects to share as well. Hope you are all like-wise inspired!

Giveaway | Citrus Twist Kits

Time for another giveaway! A lucky someone will be getting a Citrus Twist Kits "Good Books" Stamp. 

I'm an avid reader and this one is a perfect addition to my stash but I have a double in need of a good home. There's only one rule (making it easy peesy); in the comments section below include your name, email address and the title + author of something that you've read recently and got totally hooked on. I'm always on the lookout for my next read and could use some suggestions. 

Giveaway ends on Friday July 17th at midnight and I will announce the winner on Saturday. Anyone is welcome to partake.

Good luck!!!

UPDATE: The winner has been picked. Congrats to bluebird!!! An email will be going out to you today for your details. Thanks again ladies. I cannot wait to check out those books!

Got Me Some Crazy

It's very rare nowadays that I have any additional time to create projects outside of my DT duties and even rarer the times when I actually scrap digitally.

This being said, yesterday was new release day over at The Lilypad and my favourite ladies, Valorie Wibbens and Lauren Reid released a collaboration. Everything they put together as a duo is pure magic and I simply couldn't pass this one up either.

It was indeed a perfect time to revisit my scrappy roots…

They're Here!!! | Citrus Twist Kits


My July DT box has finally arrived safely. Despite the late delivery and the fact that I didn't have any projects to share with everyone on Reveal Day, I went ahead and jumped right in. It took me only a few hours to create two projects. Better late than never, right?! ;)

Country Proud

My seven year old daughter and I were inspired today to create our very own Canada Day layouts based on Marcy Penner's project seen here. Meagan put everything together herself but left me the stitching. This is her very first completed scrapbook project too!!!

Turns out mini-me's a BIG Marcy fan…who knew :p
