Life is Tweet Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Blog Hop! 

If you have arrived from Fancy Melissa’s page then you are on the correct path! This month we are featuring the ‘Life is Tweet’ set- soooooo cute!
I paired the stamp set with the Dotty paper (which I love!) and elements from our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to create this layout of my daughter enjoying a cupcake for the first time!
My cupcake was ‘iced’ with liquid applique that I just allowed to dry overnight – no heat setting for this glossy finish! 
I also used our bakers twine and felt letters to adorn my title banner.  
Here I used the cricut Art philosophy to cut out some of the coordinating shapes for my stamping- love that I didn’t have to handcut this one!

Now hop on over to Debra’s blog!

Catching up with Studio J

Like many of you I often find myself falling behind on my scrapbooking- life is busy and I want to live it to the fullest BUT I also want to remember those memories later on- Studio J is the perfect answer to this problem for me!
This is just four of the ten layouts I created this week- mostly worked on during nap times (and let me tell you my daughter takes VERY short naps!).  I am really pleased with what I accomplished and feel much better about the large box of photos I still have waiting to be worked on!

All of these events were things that had taken place over the last month or so- I picked those to work on since I had not printed the photos yet.  By doing this I save BIG on photo development and can use that money on completing layouts instead.  On these four layouts alone I have 27 photos- they are not all 4×6 (which range in price from ten cents a photo up to thirty cents depending on store and quality) and the larger the photo the more you pay! 
If you want to try out Studio J for FREE then go to and click on the studio J link! Have fun and please share with me what you create- I love to see what people come up with!
