Life With anything but boring!

Good Afternoon my crafty beauties! It's been a while I know, I promise I actually have a ton of stuff to share coming up, it's just coming up with the time to blog it! lol 

I made this layout at the crop I went to last weekend! I've been very spoiled with crops lately, but I think that's come to an end! I will just have to make do with scrapping here! I actually love scrapping at home, but I honestly just haven't been making the time to do it lately, so cropping has been a good thing for me!

Anyway, I wanted to play along with Scrapbook Nerd's die cutting challenge, and I'm in love with this exclusive cut file from Clique Kits! Did you know that's part of your monthly subscription? Yup! Every month you get fabulous cut files and printables that go along with your kit! How cool is that?! 

I made the heart as big as it could go in my silhouette software, and cut it out of white cardstock. when I was done, I just backed it with all of these fun papers from the March J'Adore kit and voila! It was a super simple layout that I just love the look of!

Here's a couple close ups:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm off to get some groceries!! I'm trying my hand at Clean Eating! I just recently participated in a clean eating challenge for 5 days on facebook and I felt AMAZING! So I'm off to get some delicious, wholesome and CLEAN food!!

I'm also going to enter this into the Anything Goes Challenge over at Clique Kits!

Clique Kits Pep Ralley Featuring Punxutawney!!

Good Morning Bloggers! I'm so excited to be a part of this month's blog share! I can't wait to hop along too! This kit is so full of goodies, I just love it! Sadly, I haven't had much play time with it though...until this weekend! I'm going to another crop and I will be bringing my Clique Kits! 

If you didn't start off at the beginning, head on over to the Clique Kits Blog and start from there!! 

The challenge:  February is the month of love, which of course means gifts of sweet treats all around! Don't forget that in addition to Valentine's Day on February 14th, there is also Galantine's Day on February 13th! This new holiday was founded by none other than Amy Pohler (Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope) one of my all time favorite non-scrapbooking related celebrities! The February kit contains so many fun sweet treat elements like ice cream cones and my personal favorite...donuts! So, this month's challenge is to use something SWEET in a project! Bonus points if you too celebrate Galentine's Day with your BFF's! I actually had a picture taken of my sister, grandma, mom and I when we went out for lunch on Galentine's Day and I fully planned on scrapping it, but life has had different plans for me...

I did get this layout done earlier of my 6 year old Caleb when he was a baby! I can't believe how fast time flies! So, I think this counts for something sweet! lol He's too sweet for words, and there's a pineapple on the page! Those can be sweet treats can't they? :) I'm on a clean eating kick right now, so if I wanted something sweet, that's about as good as it gets! HA!

I had posted in the Clique a while ago about current trends that I wasn't crazy about, and Pineapples were on that list...actually, it was the only thing on the list! lol If there's ever something that I'm not loving in the scrapbooking world, it usually ends up growning on's no different with the pineapples! lol I absolutely LOVE this little gold embossed fruit! 

How awesome is this black flower washi? If you don't usually follow my blog, you might not know of my slight severe washi addiction, and this one really did NEED to be in my collection!

I just love these die cuts that came in the kit too! They all come in white, so you can leave them white, or alter them to your liking! I used a water brush and dipped it into my Heidi Swapp Color Shine to peach this puppy up! I love how it turned out!

Here's the line up for the hop. If you haven't started at the beginning, you really should! And don't forget to leave some love for everyone too! One lucky commenter will be winning a prize!

Lucky in Love

Happy Saturday my crafty friends! I hope you're enjoying your weekend!! We've already been to hockey and back, I've gone for a run and now I've got to get working on laundry, so naturally I'm procrastinating and sharing a layout I made last night! That's right, I scrapped last night and I was so happy!! I have been dying to scrapbook lately, but it seems like I'm exhausted once I finally have any time! So last night I was full of energy and managed to get some play time in! 

I'm using up more of my Clique Kits Limited Edition We Go Together Kit and also some of the goodies that were added to the shop in February! 

I used a small cup that I dipped into black paint to make the circles on the white cardstock. I dried it with my heat gun because I'm super impatient! Once it was dry I used my watercolours to fill in a few of the circles to make this super fun background! 
Here's some more close ups:

Once I was all done stitching my layout, I mixed some black acrylic paint with water to make it more fluid and I dripped and splattered it onto my page. Here's a tip that I should really listen to myself: when you're splattering an already finished layout...COVER THE PHOTO!! lol I ended up splatting a big old blob of paint right on my face!! lol Good thing we live in a digital age and all I had to do was print another photo! 

The February Anything Goes Challenge is up now at Clique Kits! Be sure to head over there and link up your project! There's a very sweet prize up for grabs this month too!

Love in a Bowl

Hey Bloggers! I wanted to share a fun layout I made using Clique Kits Limited Edition We Go Together Kit! 

One day I decided to treat myself to some Honey Nut Cheerios, since they're my fav and I very rarely eat cereal! I was very happy to see this cute heart in the middle of one of the Cheerios! I knew this kit would be perfect for this layout!

I die cut the background with an Elle's Studio cut file and filled it in with strips of  alternating pink and red paper :)

I love all the heart elements that came in this kit! It was perfect for enforcing the heart in the Cheerio!

This fun arrow and heart stamp adds a really cute layer too!

unfortunately this kit is sold out, but there are a lot of really awesome goodies still available at the Clique Kits Store and you can use my coupon code SARAH10 for an extra 10% off your purchase! Even sale stuff!! How awesome is that?! ;)

I've been in a bit of a rut these days and I haven't scrapped in 2 weeks! I'm really hoping that I can get some crafty time in tonight! What do you do when you're feeling uninspired?

Have a great weekend!!
