Gorgeous Color!

I love the papers that I used on this layout. They have such amazing colors and are really easy to use. The Sienna Paper from the Urban Lily girl collection made a wonderful background and I loved the saying used on it. I also used the Petite paper from the Mayella Collection for some contrast behind my photo. I added an Urban Lily butterfly rubon for a little embellie cluster, some ribbon and brads, and some flowers, and my layout was complete! With such beautiful papers to work with it's not hard to do!

a mini by Eli

Today I have to share a little mini:
For the structure, I bent over the pages of a Secret Keeper Cardstock and I have sewn on 3 sides and the center, so as to create pockets in which thread the tags. First, I ran the center seam, which is hidden under the paper and after the sides, which remain in sight.

I soiled all the edges with green paint and then I decorated.

Urban Lily
Secret Keeper Cardstock
Memory Photocards Posh
Memory Photocards Swirl
Mini Book B/W

Othes supplies

Beautiful and Sweet

Have you ever been tight on time but wanted to create a great layout? Urban Lily Papers allow you to create gorgeous layouts in record time. Have a look:

I created this layout using the Happy Everything Collection: Beautiful & Celebrate
and some mists as well as washi tape and voila a super quick and easy page. I think it took me a total of 30 minutes including my journaling.
I have been limited on time these days but still like to get a bit of scrapbooking in, this is the perfect way to achieve that.

Thinking about Christmas...

I have prepared an easy card. I used one of the Secret Keeper Windows, the star one, and scraps of papers Mayella Colletion: Petite and Sassy. On the Sassy one, I stamped a Christmas greeting, a stripe, to show under the window, and by cutting the circles of the Petite one, I prepared a little tree.
Very quick!

Of course I did a LO too! I can't live without them!
I choosed a winter theme:
I used, as background, the Pure paper. With a scrap of  Gossip, I did a tag, and I have combined them with ATC cards. As embellishment I have choosed the circle Secret Keeper Windows and recycled materials.
Some details:

Can we talk Christmas?

Andrea MacDonald with you here today and I think it's time we talk Christmas. I live far away from my family so our Christmas is pretty quiet but I do go all out and deck the halls.
This year I wanted to make some decorations that showcase how fast my girls are growing up. What better way than to use the Urban Lily Secret Keeper Windows!
Have a look:
There are many different ways to decorate these lovely windows and I wanted to show you one of them.
I first stamped an image on my secret keeper and heat embossed it.

Next I used some Glimmer Mist in a lovely Brick Red.
Once dry, I grabbed some Ranger Stickles and made little dots all the way around. Punched a hole at the top with my Crop A Dile and added a ribbon so they can be hung on the tree.
Next, you can add a picture of your choice.
It was so much fun playing around with paints and glitter to make these great decorations.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed these fun ways of using those awesome Urban Lily Secret Keeper Widows.
