Something Splendid Mini Book

My Mother's Day gift was this FABULOUS Kit from Something Splendid created by Elizabeth Kartchner (Dear Lizzy) who I have been a HUGE fan of for quite awhile now. She made an adorable little book for her sweet baby and created a kit and online class from it loaded with fun paper, stickers, ribbon, twine and rub-ons - DELIGHTFUL!!! I'm so excited to share my book called Savvy says ... ... silly things.

My girl has such a silly personality, she says silly stuff all the time so I thought it would be perfect to create a book to remember those moments. We'll look back at this when she's a teenager and giggle together. Each page has a pocket to collect memorabilia, pics and such. I'll be creating many more of these books in the near future so, keep an eye open for more cuteness to come! Smooches, Amy

Loaded with great texture!! I added a decorated journaling card with a tab to each envelope.

'Mommy, This butterfly can't fly anymore, it needs more gas.' She told me this the other morning - Where does she come up with this?! FUNNY!!

A sweet pic of my girl from her birthday party - I can't believe how big she's getting!

Love me some Lollipop Flowers!!

G is for Giggles!!

I used uneven strips of scrap paper to make a fun border around the journaling card on front.

Fabric Paper Flower - LOVE IT!!!

Friday Frills Design Team - Quote That

The Friday Frills post was delayed from last week. Life happens - Have grace! That should be a bumper sticker - Right?!? Anyway, here's my layout, hope you're inspired!! Check out for all of the details. Smooches! 'Memories and Moments' Life is not a matter of milestones, but of Moments' I didn't put a date or additional text on the page to honor the 'moments' saying. It felt a little wierd but I had to remember that getting out of your creative comfort zone is good every once in awhile. Texture detail pic. LOVE the fabulous fleurs with the pink corduroy buttons!!!

Pics from recent Workshops and Clubs

I've been a busy little bee with Stampin' Up Workshops and Monthly Clubs. Here are some of the fun projects ...
8x8 layout - I usually have a hard time coming up with more 'masculine' layouts but this one - I LOVE and it was fairly quick. It would be a perfect gift to give Dad for Fathers Day with a sweet photo.

8x8 layout - LOVE the pink and blue together. Once again, a perfect gift for Mother's Day with a sweet pic.

Coaster Frame

Super cute! I put 2 coasters together after covering them with DSP (Designer Series Paper), added lots of embellishments and a binding and there you go, a fold out frame.

Owl Card

We used the Sale-a-bration Paper Pack with stickers, Ribbon and Buttons along with the Owl Punch to create this adorable Birthday Card.
