Robin's Nest Design Post

My first post went up on the Robin's Nest Blog today! 

When I received my package of Robin's Nest goodies in the mail this week, I could not wait to dive in and get creating. They make such beautiful papers (some with GLITTER on them!!), rubons, DEW DROPS, etc! Love it all. :)

This week I made a scrapbook layout to share with you.

 My #1 scrapbooking technique is layering. No page is complete without a few layers!

First, I started off with an Instagram picture. I added a bit of machine stitching to the top of the picture  for some added texture then added a bit of gold glitter to the edges. Behind the the picture I layered some white tissue paper, (just generic dollar store stuff) 2 paper strips, and a piece of Robin's Nest smoke cardstock.

The arrow paper pieces were made by cutting diagonal lines into a beautiful aqua piece of Robin's Nest paper.

I added gold paint splatters to the cardstock background, a strip of vintage lace at the bottom of the page, and one of the Robin's Nest rubons in the bottom lefthand corner.  

 I love LOVE dew drops! Where have they been all my life?? They are an amazing, versatile scrapbooking embellishment and I have been using them on EVERYTHING. Plus, the dew dew glue makes it so easy to apply them.

I handmade the white flower using Sculpey clay.  

 Close-up shot of the simple layers. I love that Robin's Nest offers so many papers that have glitter on them!  I loved working with these products and can't wait to keep creating things to share with you!

First Design Team Post

Just letting everyone know that my first post for The Robin's Nest will be going live on July 19th!
So excited. :)


party time


Today will be a short post, just a page share. :)

A page using some of the Crate Paper Pretty Party line. LOVE it. So many pretty pastel colours and classic Crate patterns.
The picture is from my formal "going away" party.

I love adore those pink flowers by Prima. Gorgeous on anything!
And you can see towards the top of the photo that I "framed" my title with gold  striped washi tape. Currently obsessed with washi. Just ordered 5 more rolls. :)
And for the splatters I used watered down MS gold paint. 

Thanks for checking out my blog!!



I LOVE Pinterest. It quickly turned into an obsession and an inspiration for me.

A few weeks ago, I pinned this and decided to "scraplift" it. This is how it turned out:

I used my square punch to punch out the papers, photos, and doilies.
Don't you just love the Pink Paislee Nantucket papers??

I used raw chipboard letters so that they would be easy to glitter :)

Hey there, just sharing a page today!

To make the white ruffles behind the photo I used white crepe paper and my sewing machine. Actually very easy to do! I love the extra texture it gives.
I LOVE these American Crafts silver thickers. So versatile!
The photo lifts up to reveal typewritten journaling.
I used Mr Huey's Pinstripe mist to make my splatters. 

Detail of the crepe ruffles and silver foil Thickers.
Lots more projects to share this week, so keep checking back :)

And I haven't had a post on the Robin's Nest Blog yet, due to slow Canadian shipping. :( So I'll let you know when my post goes live.
