December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Mad About You

Welcome to the blog hop!!

After three months of being “mad about” my daughter, I have finally managed to get some creative time in order to be part of this months blog hop! This stamp set was perfect for getting back into things as it went super well with Ellery’s newborn photos.

For these layouts I used the Roxie paper, Wings level 2 ribbon assortment, designer brads- rhinestone and of course the cricut art philosophy cartridge to do all my cuts! The layout is from Magic- one of my favourite ones as it is simple but impactful. I still have to add my journaling but otherwise I LOVE how the layout turned out!

Now hop on over to Shannon’s blog and see what inspiration she has to offer!

Studio Layouts for Christmas

Since my daughter was born two months I have had very little time for my own scrapbooking- any time I have had has been devoted to my customers and business. So- with Christmas around the corner I was stuck with what to do for some family AND had a one week deadline to get it done (we go up north to see my husbands family this weekend.)

SAVED!! by STUDIO J- completed my layouts in about an hour and ordered the JPEGS only (a perk of having a membership)- printed these at Costco and picked them up an hour later. Now this was not the cheapest option but it was convenient. Costco has raised their prices on 12×12 prints and it would have been cheaper for me to print these through Close to my Heart (which I will do for those getting layouts later this year.) The other great thing- I created 8 layouts and 7 of them will be the same for everyone’s album BUT one will change to include pictures of that special person!! LOVE how this all worked!!

Now you try- go to and click on Studio J- it is FREE to try!
