Dysautonomia Awareness Month

October 08, 2015

Many of you know October as Breast Cancer Awareness month but what most people don't know is that it is also Dysautonomia Awareness month. Despite many people not knowing what Dysautonomia is, it is actually quite common. This condition causes your autonomic nervous system to not work properly which controls the things you don't think about, such as your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. 

Winter Penguin Slider Card + Video

October 05, 2015

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be sharing this card with all of you and I really hope you enjoy it! I created this card about a week ago and I just fell in love with it and couldn't wait to share it. 

Lawn Fawn have come out with super cute Christmas stamp sets recently and although I really wanted one of the larger sets, I just couldn't spend all that money one one stamp set and a set of dies when I could get multiple smaller stamp sets for the same price. The first two I bought were the Winter Penguin and the Winter Alpaca stamps and I am so in love with them. 

This card does have quite a few steps, but they are all pretty simple.  It does take some time to create these but in my opinion, it is well worth it!

Here is the video tutorial and I hope you enjoy! My voice over is a little awkward since it has been a while since my last video but I hope it is bearable! Haha :) You can also find the supplies I used below.

Gossamer Blue - October Reveal

October 02, 2015

So first of all, I apologize for this being a day late! And secondly, I appologize for the quality of the photos. September had just been an off month for me so I'm glad it is finally over.
The October Gossamer Blue kits are so pretty this month and although I wasn't a huge fan when I saw the photos, I love them in person!
I have two traditional scrapbook pages to show you today and I really love how both of them turned out!

Both of these pages are completely different for me and I really love them! I went looking on Pinterest for some inspiration and I was definitely inspired. Sadly, I can't remember who they are inspired by!
For the triangle/heart page, I created the heart in photoshop first and then used my silhouette to cut out the triangles. I actually started off with completely different colors but they were too bold for the photo. I love the wood veneer and the rub ons..and the little hearts and stars this month! Haha :)

Sorry for the poor lighting in this photo..again..off month for me. I LOVE this polkadot paper soooo much! This photo is from when I was pretty young (that's me at the back in the navy swim suit) and this was definitely "my crew" We were all on a swim team together and we (the older kids) were best of friends. When I saw these stickers, I knew that had to be the title for this page! I used the woodgrain and yellow striped paper because they represent the sand and sun and the colors just worked really well. I love how this page turned out. 

So that is it for today and I hope to be sharing some new things in the next week or so! I hope you have a great day!
