Scrappy Monday ~ Episode 386


GOOD MORNING my creative friends! I hope you ALL had a FABULOUS weekend! Also, welcome to another "Scappy Monday"! For those of you who are new to my blog, every other Monday, my design team & myself get together & do layouts for you! I thought this was a GREAT OPPORTUNITY for ALL of us to catch up on our scrapbooking! Sometimes we get so into card making & like myself, ALWAYS put my scrapbooking asided "for another day"! So I hope my design team & myself inspire YOU to get caught up w/YOUR scrapbooking today!:) 
 This weekend I got to hang out w/my sisters & the rest of my FABULOUS family! We celebrated my Mom's Birthday along w/my 2 sisters! Everytime we get together, I never want it to end because we all get along, all of our kids just love each other to pieces & the BEST part is we don't "judge" each other! We ALL love each other & ALWAYS cherish the time we get to spend with one another!  Of course we took LOTS of pictures & I really wanted a picture of myself w/my 2 sisters! We don't have any recent pictures together, so I thought this would be the PERFECT one to scrapbook!  Let's just say that I know what those 2 are getting for Christmas! wink wink!;) 
For my 8x8 layout, I got to play w/ the "Just Simply Live" stamp set (will be back in stock the week of Sept 3rd!) That is where the sentiments "Remember" & "Good Times" are from!  The shape of the picture & it's layer are from the "Artiste" cartridge!


I even got to play w/a few of my older dies! The "Rolled Flower Dies" along w/the "Flower Petal Dies"! I forgot how FUN & PRETTY these are! In my video below, I show you how to use these 2 flowers together!  The clock is from the "Artiste" cartridge! I added this after my video, I just KNEW something was missing!:)  I put glossy accents on the "Roman" numbers & added some Glass Glitter from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique to the hands of the clock! I also just added a little bling to the center!

Of course I had to use my handy dandy sewing machine to add some real stitching to my layout as well! I just LOVE the little tag that comes in the "Just Simply Live" set! I used the alphabet that is included in the set to spell out "sisters"! Then I sewed the tag down & added some bling!;)  The black seaming binding ribbon & the cream color pom pom trim are also from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique!

Last but not least, I put my layout into a 8x8 shadowbox frame that I picked up from Hobby Lobby! I think it came out pretty & it is on display right now in my living room for everyone to see it!

Here is my video showing how I put this together!

Now onto my FABULOUS design team!:)

  1. WOW Emma I love your layout!! you are a great scrapbooker!! I am a scrapbooker at heart and do it all the time and have been for 8 years now so this is a real treat and I checked out all of your DT LO and they did a great job too.

  17. Beautiful!!! I did something like that a while back for my husband. My four boys are grown but I found some pictures of them when they were much younger and arranged them in a shadow box and gave it to him for Christmas last year.
