Hi scrappers! Susie here today! One of the things I really love about scrapbooking is being able to make meaningful gifts for important people in my life. One of my favorite subjects is new babies so I was thrilled when Moxxie released the new Wee Ones line in January!
When a new baby joins the family, shutterbugs go crazy and you will invariably get lots of fabulous 4"x6" pictures. I created this layout for my niece layout using (2) horizontal format photos - feel free to scraplift!
It is really a very simple layering of a few papers accented with those wonderful coordinating die cuts!
A little stamping, a little washi, and a lot of bling and you have a feminine layout fit for a Princess, my great-niece Riley!
Here are some detail shots:

Ange here today for a little fun combining lines. Moxxie has some pretty awesome lines! They are generally geared toward a particular subject but that doesn't mean you can't combine elements from different lines. You just have to think outside the box a bit. Which is what I did with the newly released graduation line:
Of course you can see here how these papers would be easy to use with other colors. That's the beauty of the neutral colors that were used, geared so that you can use your particular school colors when you make your project. But what about those fabulous die-cuts and stickers? Oh yes, you can use those too! So I grabbed them and started thinking outside the box. What things here could have a double meaning? Lots really, look:
A lot of these can be used for other purposes, but the one that really caught my eye was "follow your dreams". After getting a 'feel' for the die-cuts, I started going through my photos. I came across a 5x7 print of my daughter pitching. It was the perfect photo for my layout and that, of course, led me to pull out Moxxie's Softball line too. I knew they would make the perfect combo.
The yellows and sandy browns go perfect with my daughter's bright green uniform and then the grays and blacks of the Graduation line become the perfect additions. I played with this photo a little in photoshop and turned it black & white with the exception of my daughter in her bright uniform, the yellow ball and her black mitt.
I picked the graduation paper I wanted behind my photo, decided it needed a bit of color to mat it so I added the green cs. Then I picked the fun softball paper for the base. I fussy cut around the ball at the bottom so I could slip some of the photo under it, picked out the graduation border to go under it and then just started adding fun embellies. I also used the right side of sketch #257 from Nuts About Sketches. You can find it here.
My daughter is working really hard to be a pitcher so I picked all the fun die-cuts from the graduation line to use that way and then added some of the cute softball stickers and rub-ons. I totally loved (and so did my daughter) that the rub-on looked just like her. lol
Here's a few close ups. I love letting things hang off the edges but don't do it nearly enough. I also used a green marker to doodle on my title stickers and added green staples to attach the success tag.
I love the look of the brads on the edges of this sticker. I added more staples, did a little date stamping for fun and matted the Potential die-cut.
The Moxxie rub-ons are SO easy to use. They go on so easy and smooth, love them!
Here you can see how I slipped the photo under the edge of the fussy cut ball and I drew a black line around the layout to give it a finished look.
So don't be afraid to mix and match. You can come up with some pretty amazing layouts when you think outside the box.
Thanks for stopping by! :)Ange

Hey everyone, Rebecca here! Today I'm sharing the gift I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I used a heart shaped printer's tray and covered it with Moxxie goodness.
The blue paper for the sky, and the green papers for the grass and flower stems are Moxxie 12x12 die cut circles. For the flower petals, I used Child's Play paper.
This was an easy and fun project to do, and most importantly, my mom loved it!
Hello, Misty here with a FUN graduation card with some splash of COLOR! I know I find myself doing a lot of graduation cards in just black and white and maybe some hint of the school color. However, I had a request for a graduation card that was black, white and hot pink. So as I began to look at my Moxxie collections, I happen to see the "Dance" collection with the hot pink! That was exactly what I needed! I used a couple different lines of paper one from the "Senior Year" collection and a couple from "Dance" collection.
"Commencement"-Senior Year Collection--#SR-518 (black/white stripe)
"Jazz"-Dance Collection--#SH-1276 (black stripe)
"Toe Tappin"-Dance Collection--SH-1278 (hot pink & rows of stars)

Thank you for stopping by and have a GREAT scappy day!
Hello everyone! I wanted to share a layout done with the Graduation collection. This collection can be trendy, elegant or pretty much any style you want, it's really versatile! This is our daughter and her Senior picture.
I used the diecuts, but I also cut out some small parts of the paper as well, like the little banner. I just used a stamp for the leaves and added blooms.
I used some liquid pears for accents as well. I used alpha stickers on the banner for the '04.
I also used pop dots for dimension as well. I just love that the colors are black and white and you can add any accent color that you need! Makes it the perfect line!!!
I hope you try this collection, and I hope you enjoyed seeing my page. Thanks so much for stopping by. We really appreciate it!!!
