I love this series of photos of my great niece, she’s such a cutie!!  I used a Creative Embellishments chipboard 8 x 8 frame to pull the composition together and I think it does that so well!  I heat embossed the frame with American Crafts Zing Mustard Embossing Powder.  I was so happy that I Read more ..

I love how flourishes really add that something special to a layout.  They look so pretty peeking out from under floral clusters.  I’ve used several flourishes on this layout done with Stamperia’s House of Roses collection. My Nika has a very silly nickname, Noodle.  Why?  Oh I don’t know, she just acts all noodlely!  Her groomer Read more ..

I am loving all the new designs in the Creative Embellishments store, especially the large frames.  There are round, square and rectangular shapes and they work so well to focus your layouts. For this layout, I used the smallest frame in the 3 pc. Ornate Circles set.  The largest in the set is almost 12″ Read more ..

Hello CE fans!  I am sharing a special 8 x 8″ scrapbook page featuring this very sweet little baby who is my great niece.  In this photo she is not quite 2 weeks old.  I just love the way her hand seems to be holding up her head while she sleeps. This is really a Read more ..

This is the beginnings of a mini album I’m making for the first year of my great niece’s life.  She is pretty as a princess so I thought the Princess papers from Graphic 45 would be very appropriate.  The album will be 8″ x 9″.  I know this project is going to take me forever Read more ..

HI Creative Embellishments friends!  Maggi here today to share a vacation layout with you from last summer’s trip to Alaska.  This was taken in downtown Anchorage.  I loved this blue bear and that, along with all the beautiful flowers, makes Anchorage so colorful in the summer.  Its certainly a change from the dirty snow and Read more ..

I love the large tags and at 5 1/2″ x 10″, they are the perfect size for most any project. My husband is a real grease monkey and loves nothing better than to play with old broken down cars and trucks so this is perfect to hang in his garage. He really is quite talented Read more ..

Maggi here today to share with you one of my favorite Alaska summertime sights, the flowers.  All that sunlight makes the flowers grow so incredibly big.  The blossums are sometimes twice the size of what you see in the lower 48. Anchorage has the prettiest little log cabin visitor center in the middle of downtown Read more ..

Hi there CE fans, today I have a fun project using the new laser cut mirror acrylic stars in pink along with some chippies of course.  Let me introduce you to Mdme Fairbanks, she is my nod to all things pink (I’m not a “pink” kinda gal) but you know, with poodles you have to Read more ..

Hello friends, Maggi here.  Today let’s make easel cards.  They are easy to make and display so nicely!  You just cut a regular card whatever size you wish and then cut another panel the size of the front of your card.  Fold up the front of the card and then glue the separate panel to Read more ..
