Sneak Peak - Treasured Scrapbooking

I love doing sneak peaks!!! I have Kit #1 for July at Treasured Scrapbooking and I am really having fun with it!!! Some of my reveals will go up on the first, along with a sketch and some of them will go up on the 15th on the message board/gallery...but never fear I will post them here for you too!!! ;)

I LOVE Digital Scrapbooking!!!

I have taken a few beginning courses and I have done a few lessons, and I have taught myself a few things through trial and error, but never have I loved a class and learned more from a class than the one I am taking with Jessica Sprague. I am in Now We're Rockin', the intermediate course, and I am only in the 2nd
week and I am telling you I have learned the coolest things....I LOVE THIS CLASS!!! Each week you have an assignment that she presents on Mondays, they are video lessons broken up into tasks, then on every other day you get a daily email, with challenges, freebies, quick tips, etc. I am really going to miss this class when its over!!!

Here are week one assignments and week two asssignment and challenge:

Hello Cosmo Cricket!!!!

So what the heck, I will throw my hat in for a design team position with Cosmo Cricket, I love the products so its a no brainer!!! My favorite line with Cosmo Cricket has been Wanted, I know I bought at least 2 sets of the papers, one to frame, one to use. I painted my bedroom in the color scheme even;) I love that I can scrap boys or girls with this paper, and having 2 grandsons and 1 granddaughter this comes in handy!!!

So I have been working some with the Cosmo Cricket papers that are in my stash this week and so far this is what I have come up with:

From the Hey Sugar Line.

I added some American Crafts Alpha, Ranger Stickles and some ribbon from stash. This layout features hand stitching, paper tearing and a cut out large photo.

From the Get Happy Line:

I added American Craft Thickers, Doodlebug frills, Glitz frosting, Bazzill brads, Doodlebug jewels, Heidi Swapp Jewels, Junkitz star gems, chipboard stars by Pressed Petals, and pom pom trim.
This layout features paper tearing, hand stitching and photo tearing.

This layout features the Hey Sugar line

I added Prima flowers, Chatterbox Alpha and Ranger Stickles.
This layout features Paper tearing, photo tearing and hand stitching.

This layout features the Storytime line.

Added Q&Co felt border, AC felt flowers, Doodlebug buttons, Ranger Stickles. Features hand stitching, inking.

And here is my beloved Wanted line:

Some older Cosmo Cricket layout/projects

Its always been a favorite, Cosmo Cricket, so I hunted up some photos of layouts and an altered comp book I did a long time ago. My favorite paper line was Wanted.....I love everything about that line, I even painted my bedroom with the color scheme!!!

Bring Your Own Memories

I was invited to be the first guest designer at Bring your Own memories this month. I have to say that this is a kit that I have subbed to and am going back to next month. Very reasonable price and size kit. Plus the add ons are perfect. Great club, great message board too. These are the designs that I created with the 1st anniversary kit:

I also did the sketch for the monthly sketch challenge:
