Scrapbook Circle Reveals

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! I am snowed in!!!! It is just such a mess outside! I've never seen so much snow!!! I hope it melts quick, but I doubt it. I had to go and pick up Brandon at 1am this morning and it was so rough! I have never really had to drive in snow and was so scared! You couldn't even see the road on the interstate. I did not like it at all! LOL. Anyways, I have some layouts that I've been working on over the past few days that I wanted to share with you. I've been working with the February kit from Scrapbook Circle.

"Learning To Wave"
This layout is of my Daddy and Carter at the Memphis Zoo a few years ago. Carter was just learning to move his fingers/hands in order to wave. It was so cute. I'm so glad my Mom caught this in a picture. I cut the shaped paper using my SCAL (sure cuts a lot) and Cricut Expression. I cut the circles with Plantin' Schoolbook and embossed using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix texture plates. I stitched around the circles with my sewing machine. I cut the strip of the ruler from the Cosmo Cricket paper in the kit and pleated it. I stitched the pleats closed.

I love this picture!!! Those little fingers were so cute! He is so big now and I sometimes miss these days!

The alphas are Cosmo Cricket and Jillibean.

This is another layout of Carter. This was during his first trip to the beach. I used my SCAL and Cricut to cut the shaped paper on this one as well. Everything is pulled from the kit except the alpha's. They are some Chatterbox that I have had for quite a while. I'm glad I was able to use them.

I love the buttons, rhinestones, and labels in this kit.

Cluster of buttons/rhinestones...

This page is of my mother and Carter. She is such a wonderful grandmother and I know Carter will always remember that. The journaling reads: "There's a reason why we call them 'grand'ma!!!" Everything is from the kit with the exception of the alphas and the twine. I used a Fiskars border punch (Threading Water) and used the holes to lace up the twine.

I also really like the metal clips that came with this kit.

To show some of the dimension...

Also, yall have GOT to see this boardbook that my Mom just finished up. It is just about the cutest little thing I have ever seen! She really has such a talent for these boardbooks. You can tell how much hard work and effort that goes into them. All of her details are just amazing! Check it out and leave her some luv if ya want....


Thanks you for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day! Try to stay warm...if you are cold like me! LOL. Maybe with this being snowed in, I can get some more scrappy stuff finished. :)

Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!

Girl, could you be any more talented?!?!? I just am amazed at every layout you create!!! The stitched pleating is great, I need to flatten my layouts a bit and that will help, great idea! I could go on and on about each and every incredible detail but I'll leave it here: STUNNING WORK!!!
