Are You Ready for Some Football?

Just got some of the new paper lines from MOXXIE and boy, am I excited to create with these.

Looking back in time, I found this pic of my son a year ago playing "football" with his Daddy. Maybe someday he'll play "real" ball, but for now a day at the park is all this Mama can handle.

Moxxie created a super sporty line called Grid Iron. I distressed edges and added some metal brads and a little wooden word embellishment to round out the page.


I love how these papers have such strong contrasting colors- the browns, greens and creams really pop. I'm a huge fan of this sticker set too. It creates the fun for you.

So, are you ready for some football? Or maybe ready to scrap some football?

Autumn Glory & Awesome MOXXIE Newness

So MOXXIE is releasing 7 awesome new lines. I want to show off the gorgeous, deep, rich, warm line called Autumn Glory. It has great stickers (I plan to do so many more pages with this line just to get a chance to use the beautiful stickers I haven't yet taken advantage of).

I couldn't hold back and had to create not 1 but 2 pages with these beauties.


My first son first- look at him and his buddies playing in the fall leaves. We don't get that chance enough in California where I live. I just love the rich flowers floating across one of the pages so while watching TV, I fussy cut them and overlapped them over the photo and some textured burlap. There really is so little I needed to add as the colors and beauty of the paper alone is stunning. 


My second son second. Here he is in Indian headdress. I loved all the rich colors so I did a triple mat to show off the depth of colors. Added some texture with burlap and skeleton leaves (old timer scrappers remember those) and a bit of bling. I love flourishes and wanted to show them off a bit by adding my journaling along one of the wavy lines. 


Now go check out more of the awesomeness using ALL the new MOXXIE lines!

Little Mountain Man **MOXXIE**

I've gone camping every summer of my life since I've been alive. And now that I have my own little family- we camp together too. One of my husband's favorite activities is hiking. This MOXXIE line called Happy Camper is just that- HAPPY!

 For this Hiking page, I used rough, distressed edges. I misted the green with "dirty" brown and inked edges of photo mats in green and brown.
   

I loved the trees on one patterned paper but wanted a green background. Easy solution- fussy cutting. It's inexpensive and can be done in front of the TV.

 

 I'm in love with that family photo right now. Isn't my family cute?
 Happy Campers!

Summer Blog Hop with MOXXIE - PRIZE available too!

Hello!

Welcome the the Summer time fun Moxxie blog hop!

Summer to me is all about great weather and relaxing fun. Living in California means sunshine and beaches. This fun, relaxed line from MOXXIE features beautiful colors. Beach Bum with great die cuts.

Surfer Boy- my son has grown his hair out for a "surfer" look. He's got those beautiful golden locks too.
I'm all about adding that little extra something to a page- an unusual technique, recycled embellishment or just a mix of products. So this page is actually different for me. It uses ONLY the MOXXIE beach line and my photos. With great colors and papers like this, it just doesn't need anything more!

Today our talented designers are going to show you fun summer projects using many different lines. So let's hop right to it shall we? Here is the list of blogs to check out:

Kitty Kitty

Previously I made a page for my cousin Alicia using MOXXIE's Paws & Claws line. The line features cats & dogs and yet I made it neutral. I wanted to try it again, but this time using the cat theme. I used another pic of my cousin Alicia for her graduation album. This pic came from her Facebook page (love that kids post stuff for us to use now a days).
 
This playful pic of her with kitty whiskers and nose just begged for the Claws & Paws line.
Look how great the rub-on of the kitty is (these are high quality rub-ons unlike SOME that bite).
And for a little fun touch, I had to add a cat scratch. To create, I cut with an Exacto Knife then just wiggled and wiggled the knife in the cut to rough it up and give it distressed definition. 
If you want to buy this line, I found it for sale at www.scrapnesia.com

Sweet Ride

The 4th of July makes me think of hometown Americana and family Bar-B-Ques. Here is my family (my mother-in-law with my niece and nephew) being down-home American.


I used MOXXIE Down on the Farm line. The title "Sweet Ride" makes me laugh. I just cut out one of the journal cards that could also fit nicely into a pocket page, but also works perfectly for accents. That green tractor paper might very well have been made for this photo, don't you think? I'm in love with the depth of brown color that I used for the background. I added a touch of texture with burlap and wood buttons to bring out the rust of the trailer. The bold pop of red is thick chipboard and adds a playful touch. 


So here is wishing you a down-home 4th of July filled with lots of warmth and fun.

New Moxxie Muses- Blog Hop


Hello Moxxie fans!  We have a special treat for you today!

Come and hop along with me to all the new MOXXIE Muses.
It involves tons of inspiration and A PRIZE!!!


As many of you know we started this month with a new design team and we are loving all of their fantastic projects and awesome inspiration. So much in fact, that we thought it would be fun to get to know them just a little bit better with a Blog Hop!

You will see a wide variety of styles and projects and hopefully get to know each of our team members just a little bit better.

Here is mine: Paradise Beach. 
This page is so me! It features those I love most, my hubby and two sons spending time at a beautiful beach in sunny California where I live. I used the Moxxie Line- Beach Bum. I love every single paper in this line. When I started, I planned to use tons of papers but then I found the Surf's Up paper. It is gorgeous and one paper alone has everything you need. Great distressed edging, cool border along the bottom and awesome birds in flight. Sometimes the paper is so fabulous, there is no need for more. This paper is exactly that! 




I matted the pic with the orange from Beach BumTo add texture, I used a stencil and some modeling paste to put diamonds under the bottom right of the photo. Next, I tore up left over tissue paper in yellow and white and mode podged it around the lower left corner. The more lumpy bumpy, the better. Then I used the PERFECT Beach Double-sided Diecut overlapped over the photo for part of the title and added some real shells. A touch of bling saying beach completes the look. 




Here is the list of blogs.
