NSD 2016

National Scrapbooking Day was quite a success in my book! On that day (May 7th), I managed to do 4 Fast Scraps and 2 Challenges at ACOT. Their challenges weren’t due until May 13th, so I got about 8 more squeezed in! Whew!

Pretty In Pink

I used quite a bit of my stash that I pulled for my May Use It Or Lose It Challenge. I used the following items:

  • Wooden buttons from Basic Grey
  • Red rose ribbon
  • Kimberly Polsen Mat stack by Fiskars
  • MME “My Story” flair
  • Sequins by MME “Fancy That”
  • Bo Bunny “Head over Heels” chipboard
  • Basic Grey “Urban Prairie” papers

I also knocked out the entire set of pics I took at my friend’s little girl’s 1st birthday last fall, and quite a bit of pics from our scrappy girls photo shoot taken 5 years ago!


Sketch N Scrap Flashback Friday #2

Good morning everyone and welcome to Sketch N Scrap’s Flashback Friday! Today I chose a sketch from December 2012

May 13th - Hosted by Me

I just fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I love the large die cut piece in the back. So here is my take on it:

2 Happy Girls

I used the Cricut cart “Edge to Edge” for the die cut piece, with the chipboard pieces from Bo Bunny “Alora” collection.


The alphas are from Amy Tangerine, and the washi is by Love My Tapes.


I combined this with a NSD Challenge over at ACOT – Donna’s Spelling Challenge. We had to use our first name, with NSD at the end. So my name would be BRANDYNSD. Here is my recipe and what those items are in my layout:

B = Bo Bunny Chipboard
R = Red cardstock
A = American Crafts Green Cardstock
N = Number
D = Die Cuts
Y = Yellow labels
N = Names
S = Stars
D = Damask Washi Tape

Don’t forget to stop over at Sketch N Scrap‘s blog and check out the rest of the DT layouts. Remember, you have until May 31st to play along!

TFL! 🙂
