With summer vacation right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share a layout of my kiddo at Day Camp. It's a Christian themed week long Day Camp, so I decided to play around with Faith for this one.
Faith is one of my all time favorite collections. The colors are just so very lovely, and it is so easy to work with!
I used pops of yellow and aqua to frame my photos and give a bright feel to the whole thing. To ground my title, I added strips of paper behind the words.
I love that the bright colors make Faith work beautifully for a fun summer (and faith) themed layout!
and a beautiful time of year to share with you our 2015 Spring Releases!

Hello! Samantha here today to share 1 sketch and 2 layouts from that sketch. Here is the sketch I created and will be working with for my layouts today:
I thought it would be fun to show you how versatile sketches can be. I often say that just changing the paper collection makes the layout completely different. Today, I'm going to take that one step further to show that even if you use the exact same paper collection, you can end up with very different layouts.
I have pictures of both of my boys with their class for this past year's homecoming prep rally parade. Choosing papers was as easy as reaching for Grid Iron. For my first layout, instead of creating a title, I used a strip of Grid Iron that had one on it for me already!
My second layout uses the same sketch and Grid Iron, but choosing different papers within the collection can give you a very different looking layout.
The biggest change I made to the sketch for this layout was using a vertical photo. I even repeated the use of the "Team Spirit" stickers as an accent piece.
Do you use many sketches when you scrap? If you decide to use this one, I'd love to see what you do with it!
Hello! Samantha here today to share a layout with you. Spring is in the air and so I thought it would be lots of fun to use Moxxie's Springtime to scrap a few photos that my niece took of my boys. She was watching them for me one day, and they made some really fun bird feeders.
The sweet, cheery birds from Springtime were just right to scrap about their bird feeder making exploits. My boys will only let me get away with the smallest amounts of pink and purple on their layouts, so picked out the pieces from Springtime that were predominantly blue, green, or orange to frame my photos.
This little birdie journaling card was just right for my layout, but it was surrounded in purple, so I trimmed around the the very edge of the card (and the bird's tail).
I love the little chevrons that you can find on many of Moxxie's sticker sheets. They always seem to be just the right embellishment for a project. Here I also added a few enamel dots to them as well.
Have you used Moxxie's springtime yet? I'd love to see what you've been creating with it!

Hello! Samantha here today with with a 2 page layout featuring Moxxie's new release Basketball.
We love to play basketball, so I have lots of photos of us shooting hoops. Two page layouts are a great way to get a lot of photos all in one place.
To make this layout come together easily, I worked with the Basketball title already printed on the paper. To make the basketball player pop a little more, I added a "real" basketball from the stickers.
I cut the PLAYTIME title with my Silhouette Cameo. I also layered a few stickers over the photos.
Framing the photos with some card stock and patterned paper adds a finished look to the layout.
Hello! Samantha here today to share a layout with you that uses a combination of new and old collections. Here's my Time Well Spent layout:
I love a good piece of wood grain paper, so I started my layout with a piece of At the Beach Surfs Up. The wood grain adds interest to the layout without being to busy and taking focus from the photo.
From there it was just a matter of choosing some of the more weathered looking solids from collections like Fun Run and Springtime.
My embellishment stickers were a combination of stickers from Fun Run and Faith. When mixing and matching collections it's more important to look at the colors and patterns on the paper than the name/theme of the collection. I finished up by creating my title with some of those awesome Moxxie alphas!
The winner will get to pick one of these fantastic lines as their prize!

Hello! Samantha here today sharing my St. Patrick's Day card. I'm an Irish girl, so every year I make sure to send both of my grandparents a St. Patty's Day card
Just because none of Moxxie's new releases aren't Irish themed, it doesn't mean I couldn't use them for my cards this year.
I started by pulling all the greens and blue-greens from all of the new collections. Then, I started to layer up the ones I liked best. I ended up using papers from Fun Run and Springtime.
I created and printed out my greeting, since I don't have a St. Patrick's Day stamp. I was originally planning on printing the greeting in green, but I thought the rainbow look was a bit more fun! I cut the shamrocks with my Silhouette Cameo, because every St. Patty's Day card needs at least one shamrock on it! I finished up by adding a few sequins.
