Creative Imaginations Guest Designer

Hi everyone!!! Only 3 more days until Christmas! I'm finishing up my handmade gift tags and present wrapping these final days, and I'm so happy to see the growing excitement in my children every single day!

Today I want to share with you a Christmas layout that I made using a mixture of a few Creative Imaginations collections and you can also check out this layout over on the Creative Imaginations Blog today!!

I was so thrilled when I was asked to be one of their Guest Designers, and make sure you check back soon because I have a couple more features and projects coming that will be up on their blog after the holidays!
Have a terrific Thursday! -Sarah

Christmas Photos

Hi everyone, I was just playing around with some cute shots of the kids in front of our Christmas tree last night.

These still need some work because I ended up taking the photos after it was already too dark, but I still wanted to share these anyhow. I also got the cute idea of using the candy canes as hearts in the photos from the fabulous Kelly Goree!! Her photos are waaaaayyyy better than mine, but I'm still learning my camera and the photos I'm taking today in more natural daytime light will put these to shame...hope you're all ready for Christmas!!

Have a wonderful Monday!! -Sarah

Just Sharing

Hi everyone! We had some professional family photos taken yesterday, so while Carter was still dressed up (& clean) I thought that I'd snap a few pics in our front yard. I love how Christmas-y this one turned out with the evergreen in the background!!

Happy Monday! -Sarah

Donna Salazar Altered Clock

Hello everybody, Sarah here to share with you my altered wooden clock that I created using Donna Salazar's Antiquities collection along with the Donna Salazar Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets dies, matching chipboard Sprightly Sprockets coordinates from Want 2 Scrap, a bit of Want 2 Scrap bling, and also the Donna Salazar Spellbinders Wonderful Wings dies.

I first cut my pattern paper to size in order to fit the clock front, and then I used my circle cutter to cut out a circle from the center of the pattern paper to show the clock face.

Next, I cut out the Sprightly Sprocket dies to use as embellishments on the front of my clock, and then I layered them onto the matching chipboard Sprockets. I inked the edges of the chipboard and also the die cuts with Chestnut Roan and Creamy Brown Colorbox Cat's Eye Queue Inks.
Then, I cut out the Wonderful Wings butterfly dies and spritzed the bottom butterfly with the Candleglow Smooch Spritz. I embellished the rest with flowers, twine, and bling.
