Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Victorian Challenge

So the first challenge over at the Sugar Sweet Paper Treats blog was to do something with a Victorian theme. Let me tell you this was not an easy thing for me. Having 2 boys and a husband there are not a whole lot of girlie things in my house, let alone anything Victorian. Thanks to the other ladies on the design team though I think I fumbled my way through it pretty well. Since my wedding pages are one of the few girlie things I get to do I figured that was a good place to start. All of the patterned papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle. I made the flowers by cutting a scalloped circle, misting it with water, pinching it in the middle and ruffling it out. Then attached a Prima flower and pearl brad to the top of it. The scalloped border on the bottom is an EK Success border punch and the "Bride" title is from K & Co. It's not the MOST Victorian project ever, but for not being my "thing" I thought it turned out pretty good. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all of the other great projects on the SSPT blog.

Easter Pages


So I know Easter has been over for a month now, but Brayden picked out these pics for me to scrap the other day and since I need to get caught up anyway, here they are. I used the Kioshi collection from Basic Grey. The scallop borders and circles were done on my Cricut with Plantin Schollbook and Mini Monograms and the title is Thickers. I love how they turned out, the colors and patterns just went together so easy on this one. I also did another version of it for my other son using different colors and a few other things. Check out both sets below and thanks for stoppin by!
