Hi -

We are under hurricane warning today so after getting my water and canned goods and filling up my gas tank - guess what?  I had time to take photos and post this very pretty Fairy Album on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps today!!

I have had this paper tablet for a while and I never got around to making anything from it.  How many of you out there buy pretty paper thinking you will go home that very day and create something with the new paper?  I do this all the time.  The way that I create things is in my mind first.  So I looked at this paper knowing exactly what I wanted to make but then things and my life get in my way.  Anyway, I have a lot more ideas roaming around in my head and I have already started on another album.

So back to this pretty little piece.  The outside is thick chipboard and the inside pages are made with the stack the deck system.  I think that is Laura Dennison?  The album is approx. 6x6 and has 6 pages.  Each page has mattes for 6 photos and/or journaling so there is enough for around 34 plus in this album.

I just posted it today at my Etsy store along with some cards, layouts and my beach album from last week.  So there are plenty of goodies to look at.

Here are some pics of this album:  Fairy Album

The outside cover has the newest Prima Marketing (Frank Garcia) Remnant Domes Memory Hardware.  Inside the Dome I have a beautiful winged silver fairy charm placed on a background of castles with lots of glitter and beads in the dome.

The 3 inch binding has purple textured faux leather with two charms and lots of ribbon and fiber.  One charm is the 2 inch silver fairy and the other is a small (7 gypsies) bottle of "fairy dust"

The entire album has a shabbly - distressed look to it with distressed edges and gold painted crowns.  This album really turned out nice. 

Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you think :)

Happy Scrapping

Product Used:

Paper:  DCWV, Bazzill; Glue:  Helmar;  Ribbon/Fiber:  May Arts, Basic Grey; Embellishments:  Prima Marketing, Sizzix diecuts, K&Co., Mark Richards

Celebrate New Pages


I listed this 12x12 Premade layout titled "Celebrate" on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps a couple of days ago.

I have been busy creating layouts and albums these last couple weeks.  I figured if I was in the mood I might as well take advantage of that creativity and use it right!

I have a couple of things to tell you about.  I am honored to be on the Helmar team going on my third year - this year I will be a "guest designer" so I wont be on the blog as often as last several terms.  I love my Helmar so couldn't let it go just yet.  Yes, I did use Helmar on this layout and all my layout and albums this week.

Here is the link to this layout if you are interested in buying it CELEBRATE LAYOUT.

More photos for you below.  This would be a great layout for birthday photos, shower photos, anniversaries and even Mom's Day.

These pages have pretty Prima flowers and also stamped (outline stamps) flowers which are layered and glittered.  There are rub ons and vellum, ribbon, stickers and 3D butterflies.  Lots of technique and plenty of room for photos.

Hope you enjoy, take a look at my store Kitsnbitscraps for more layout and albums.

Happy Scrappping ...

BaBy Scrapbook Layouts

Hi -

I've been busy!  Using my stash and making simple baby pages.  I just listing the first one "Sweet Dreams" above and will list second one "Sweetie" tomorrow on my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy Store

I also made a cute very layered stamped card for Helmar  today but that is news for another day.  Like I said - I have been busy.

This second layout is titled "Sweetie" with subtitle "play" which I will list tomorrow.  By the way I am also starting to list more Christmas Cards on my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy store too, so check it out.

scrapbooking premade pages Sweetie kitsnbitscraps

I used Helmar on both layouts.  I have used tape runners lots of times and what I find out is that you need liquid glue if you want it to stay put for a life.

Here are some more pics of both layouts.  I will be blogging next about a brand new layout I created yesterday, so come back!  It turned out super cute.

That's it for now, more to come.  Happy Scrapping ...

New Accordion Friends Mini Album

Hi -

Today I am posting photos of the album I finished and posted at my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy Store. 

I am on a mission to start using my stash.  I have an art room completely maxed out with supplies and really ...  its out of control.

I have lots of ideas planned out for albums (which is my favorite to make) so I will be listing many more mini's for sale at my Etsy store and to share here on my blog.

Here are some photos of my album titled "Friends"  click here to go to Kitsnbitscraps to take another look.

I love Bobunny and I had some matching paper and embellishments that I made this mini with.  I have a girl friend who absolutely loves going onto youtube and watching scrapbook and art videos.  She showed me the construction of the mini.  Then I had another girl friend (Glenda) who also likes to scrapbook so we got together one day and I started this mini.

This mini was a lot of fun to make and I want to thank you for stopping by my little corner of the net.

New Beach Album


I started this Beach Album a while back but as I get busy; I put projects on the back burner. Anyway I finished it and it is posted on my Etsy Store!

Here are some pictures I took of the album because as you know I only get 5 photos when I list on Kitsnbitscraps/etsy


This album measures 6.5 by 8.5 with a 3 inch binding.  Outside cover is made of chipboard and the inside pages of paper bags.  There is enough real estate on this album for minimum 33 photos but you could always slip more into the pockets.

I have recently added more layouts and albums to my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy Store

So go check out this Beach Album and my store.  Thank you for stopping by ...

Repurpose the Old and Make it New Again

Hi, today my Home D├ęcor project is being featured at the Helmar blog, please go on over and see what the design team is up to.

For this project, I knew I was making a gift for my neighbor's grandchild.  My assignment was to take something old and make it new again.  I had a K and Company frame for a couple of years and I thought it would make a great gift.  The style and color of the old frame was not what I was looking for but it was easy to change it with a little paint.

I changed the original base matt to a baby motif with with dark and light shades of grey.  I also liked the original border around the photo of the old K&Co. matt.  It was easy to fussy cut the border, change the color and adhere it to the new matt.

I chose this cute cloud pattern and added the adorable 3D elephant to match the baby's room.  Lastly I decorated the outside corner of the frame with lots of pretty flowers and buttons.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the web.  Happy Scrapping ...
