Hello 2015! Top pages of 2014

WOW!!  It's the longest I've gone without blogging in about 6 years.  Is anyone still out there?  lol...actually, I really MISS posting my memories on here that have gone along with each scrapbook page I have created.  Blogging sometimes can be tedious, but when I go back through and look at my posts and stories about my kids from a few years ago, it's so worth it!  So I am going to TRY and pick this up again on a regular basis.

As you may or may not know, back in January 2014, I took over ownership of the online scrapbook store, My Scraps & More.  It has been a huge learning curve, but I have LOVED getting in piles of products and shipping them out to others who love them just as much.  The store itself, Facebook page, Instagram, message board, gallery, store blog, and sketch blog take up a LOT of time, and that is why you've seen less of me here.  (PLEASE come join us at one of these links!!  We have an awesome DT and do giveaways all the time!)

HOWEVER, if you don't know, every Monday I post on the store if you want to see some of my recent pages, please stop by there!

ALSO, if you'd like to see some of my work WITHOUT all the chatter, please follow me on Flickr....I have been posting almost all of my work there!

It would take me forever to catch up on what I haven't posted in the last couple months, so instead, I am just going to share with you my favorite pages of 2014.  Many of them have not been posted, so I hope you enjoy!  These are in no particular order:


Stay scrappy my friends!  Hope to be back soon!

World Card Making Day Blog Hop with My Scraps & More Sketches!!!

Hello and welcome to the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog blog hop!!  Today, each design team member has created a CARD sketch to celebrate World Card Making Day.  That’s TEN different sketches!!!

There will be TWO prizes given out for the blog hop:

1. One person will win a $10 gift certificate to the store just for commenting on one of the designers blog posts. I will choose one of the DT members blogs and then choose a random commentor from that post.

2. Another winner will be chosen from all the card sketch entries uploaded to the In Linkz on the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog. For each card sketch, create a DIFFERENT link up. So if you complete all 10 sketches, you will need to do 10 link-ups! (On your card link please be sure to mention whose sketch you used and link back to the My Scraps & More Sketch blog. If you’d like you can also leave the DT member a comment with a link to your card so they can see what you did with their sketch.)

Here is the prize for the card sketch blog hop:


All comments and card sketches for the Blog Hop must be linked up by Monday, October 6th at 12 pm EST.

BUT, if you don’t complete all the card sketches by Monday, that’s OK….you can still upload them through the end of the month for the monthly prize drawing on the sketch blog!  The more sketches you do, the more chances you have to win!

Here is the monthly blog prize:


And now let me share my sketch and card with you:

I decided to do something a little different with the sketch and I created a CIRCLE shaped card!  I love making cards of different's a quick way to add some charm and personality to a card.  And you can embellish it very simply, and it will still look spectacular!

Here is the sketch:

I just some stickers and die cuts from Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas, and then added a few sequins.  Sequins seriously make EVERYTHING look fancier, and it is such a simple touch that adds a big impact.

If you are scared about doing a round card, just look at the sketch as a circle on a square or rectangle instead.

Since I was using the Fancy Pants stash, I decided to make a few more cards based on some of the other DT members sketches! Now, I'm not gonna share their sketches, but I WILL tell you whose sketch it was!
