Trixie Scraps December

Hard to believe that a year has flown by already. This month my layouts were created by some previously released kits. Let's get right to it!! (Full credits linked)

I loved the holiday card I created for my sister and family using Remember Bethlehem collection.


My nephew is loving football and he loves the Bengals!! I created this layout with Pigskin Party.


A couple year old photo of my hubby and I. Loved the colors in Best Year Ever kit.


Last, but not least...my desktop really needed an update and I love how this turned out! I used Blue Christmas.


See you next year!!

Trixie Scraps November

Eeek! It is almost December. We worked on cleaning up the house so we could get our tree put up and no luck yet. My goal is to get it done this week. Let's get right to the layouts I did this month.

I did a Halloween layout of myself from just a few years back :-) with One Haunted Evening from North Meets South Studios (Trixie Scraps and Connie Prince).



Loving this one of my niece using A Life That's Good collection (credits are linked)





We love the fall and had great weather to enjoy this year! November Templatetopia from Trixie and Connie was AWESOME as usual! 




My little buddy on his birthday this year. Today he is 6 1/2 - time sure does fly! I used It's His Birthday (one of my favorite bday kits!)



My nephew was playing outside and thought it was so funny when a grasshopper climbed up on his cars! A great scrapping moment! Blue Jean Boy collection was perfect for the photos!



See you next month!

Trixie Scraps October

I can not believe that the month is almost over! Let's get right to all the wonderful kits!! (Full credits are linked to the layouts)

First up is Believe In Your Dreams by North Meets South Studios {Connie Prince & Trixie Scraps}. My hubby and I were lucky enough to go and see the musical Wicked, so this worked perfectly!

God Gave Me You is a beautiful kit and has a vintage feeling, so I first thought of some fun photo booth photos of my mom. (I used multiple pieces of the collection for this layout - credits linked)

Ghoul School is a really cool collab from Trixie and Ponytails Designs. I found this cute photo of me with my niece and nephew a few Halloweens back!

Witch's Brew is another great collab from Trixie and Connie (North Meets South Studios). I can't believe this is my niece on her 1st Halloween - 13 short years ago!

Triumphant is a kit to celebrate any and all wonderful moments in life.

October Templatetopia makes it so fun to look forward to each month! I loved our family photos and these worked great for them!

Autumn Spice is one of my new favorite fall kits from Trixie and Connie (North Meets South Studios)

Trixie Scraps September

It has been another amazing month for Trixie and I just love all of my layouts!!

First up is September Templatetopia - Meeting the Teacher is always a fun part of the new school year! I used the Apples for Teacher collection.

Autumn Spice is an amazing collab with Connie Prince and Aprilisa Designs available at My Scrapbook Art.

My little buddy gave me such a sweet smile when getting on the bus the 1st day of school! The New Kid in Class collection was perfect my layout!

I just love how our family photo turned out and I'm hoping to turn this into a canvas! Picture a Family is available at Scrap Stacks.

Looking forward to seeing you again in October!

Whimsical Ideas by Pam - Crazy Daisies

Summer is still here (at least the weather this week still seems like it) and so is my manicure! When I first saw this polish I knew I had to have it. I just adore yellow and flowers! Crazy Daisies is a sheer yellow polish with orange flowers and some small hex glitter. It was also named by her niece. Since it is so sheer I used 1 coat of Sinful Colors Unicorn and then 2 coats of Crazy Daisies. I had no problem with getting the flower glitter out of the bottle. Whimsical Ideas by Pam is found on Facebook here and all orders are done by email. I love all of the details that she places on her polish such as the cute fonts and bows on the bottles!  I'm looking forward to seeing what Pam comes up with for her Fall/Halloween collection! Thanks for looking!

Hit Polish Pennies from Heaven New for Fall!

Hit Polish's new fall polish collection just came out yesterday and let me tell it is just amazing! I could not wait to put on Pennies from Heaven - a rose shimmer with copper and gold fine glitters, and holographic and metallic glitters in hex, square and dot shapes. Photos don't do this polish justice. The base colors is so beautiful and the glitters look just AMAZING in any light! I used a base coat, 2 coats of polish, and 2 coats of top coat to smooth out the feeling of glitter.

Rachel also has some fun mystery boxes right now! I can't wait to get mine! You can keep in touch with Hit Polish on Facebook.

August Layouts from Trixie Scraps

Happy almost September! I want to share some of the layouts that I created this past month with Trixie Scraps Designs. Here I am a few years back!! I used the Scouting is for Girls {Full Kit} by North Meets South Studios (Connie Prince & Trixie Scraps) and Greatest Hits vol 9 Template Pack.

Next up is my new desktop background and I created it with That's My Boy kit.

Last, but not least is a photo of my mom and uncle from the 1950's. I just love how the photo works with the color combination! I used Riding with Boys kit, alphas and Standing Alone V.4 templates for the layout.

Thanks for looking and see you next month!!

KBShimmer Candy Cane Crush Polish

My latest manicure includes such a cool polish from KBShimmer - Candy Cane Crush. It is loaded with red and white hex glitters in many different sizes. I can see so many layering options with this polish. For a fun summer manicure I layered it over a bright hot pink - Creme Pink from Sinful Colors. The staying power of KBShimmer's polishes are just wonderful. The Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat has also become a favorite!! Right now KBShimmer is doing an amazing giveaway - don't miss it!
