two fun projects to share today…

Happy Tuesday, friends!  The sun is shining this morning and the sky is a beautiful shade of blue. I’ve already baked muffins AND banana bread, the house is clean AND I have two fun projects to share with you – it’s a great day already! :)

First up, I am guest posting on Shimelle’s lovely blog today.  I was so thrilled to receive an invitation to create a tutorial to share with her readers – and mine! – and I am excited to share a little peek with you today. 


My tutorial is all about washi tape – yay!  I created two separate frames (completely different styles) and layered them together on one layout for a fun look.


Then I went crazy with lots of fun elements.  Can you believe I created an entire layout without one speck of patterned paper?!?  Of course, there are plenty of other patterned elements – but not a trace of patterned paper – small miracle! ;)

I was happy with the result – I hope you take a minute to check out the tutorial (here)  - and please let me know if you try it out – I’d love to see your take!


And speaking of “your take” I’d love to see your take on today’s sketch over on the Lily Bee blog!

LB 3:26 Sketch

I created a layout about Easter last year…but it’s not what you’d expect for an Easter Morning layout. 


The colors are really non-traditional…but it was a non-traditional Easter since we were all super sick all weekend.


You can see my layout – along with my fellow design-team member’s layouts HERE!


And I’d love to see your take on Patricia’s fun sketch…and if you take the challenge, be sure to share your layout for a chance to win a fun prize (details are here)!

Happy Tuesday! :)


  1. Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your double frame washi tape LO!!! Saw it on the Shimellle's blog today!!

  2. Saw this on Shimelle's blog and I had to come see if I could find out what company the Gears washi tape is.
