Thursday Moxxie Hey Chickie Card

Happy Thursday!

I have been very fortunate that I have been desiging for Moxxie for the last 2 years.  They are a wonderful company with lots of fun specialized papers.  It really has been a joy for me.  At the start of  2014 my hubby and I sat down together to talk about my stress levels with working full time, home life with 2 boys and everything that goes along with that and then my scrapping.  I was stressing out about deadlines and spending way too much time in my scrap room and plus  it wasn't any fun anymore.  I decided to cut back on my teams and unfortunately Moxxie is one that I have decided to leave.  So this will be my last post for Moxxie.

For this cute and easy card I started with the yummy papers for the Easter-rific collection.  I then stamped an adorable little chick from The Alley Way Stamps and colored her with my spectrum noir markers.  Next I stamped my sentiment on a tag from Core'dinations.  Finally I added some pearl gems.

Monday Moxxie

Happy Monday!

Did you have a nice weekend?  I did but just not long enough.  I have 5 more work days and then I will be on Spring Break!  Oh yeah!  I can't wait!  So I can do this week. Right???

Today I have a card to share that is from Moxxie.  The Easter-rific collection is just so bright and pretty.  For my card I layered the pattern paper and used one of the stickers as my sentiment.  I then broke into my stash and pulled out some coordinating Prima flowers.  Remember when the cool little bottles of Prima came out about 7 years ago?  Well, I bought a bottle and I still have that bottle completely full. LOL!!  I just don't use flowers on anyhting.  So, it was fun to break them out here!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a project.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Friday March MOxxie Sketch

Happy Friday!

Oh am I glad it is Friday but boy, oh boy, do we have a crazy weekend!  I have a tennis match tonight and practice on Saturday and Sunday- the youngest has two (yes, two) birthday parties to go to on Saturday and the oldest has two (yes, two) lacrosse games (one on saturday and one on sunday).  Yikes, I don't know how we are going to get it all in!

Today I have to share with you the March Moxxie sketch.
Here is my take.  I used the Brand New Easter Collection for this one.  I love the fresh spring-like colors in this collection.  Very fun!

These are photos of the little one at our church's Easter Egg Hunt.  It was a VERY cold day and we were freezing but we all had a really good time.  It was the first year that this little guy got to be in the big area!  He was so excited not to be with the "babies".

Monday Moxxie Sketch

Happy Monday,

Popping in today to share my February Moxxie sketch and layout with you.  First up we have the sketch:
For my layout I used an older collection Chillin' Out.  Love this collection becuase it is just so perfect for my photo of my boys "chillin' Out"!  I changed the sketch up a bit and went with a one photo but the idea is still the same.

I used a bunch of the stickers that came with the collection to add fun sayings and embellishments.  You can check out this collection HERE!

Just a quick post.  I am off today and I am hanging with my boys for a fun filled day!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with the new digi release from Some Odd Girl!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Monday Gymnastics Card with Moxxie

Happy Monday!

Moxxie has several new collections coming out right now and one of them is called Gymnastics!  At first I thought that I would not be able to work with this collection becuase I don't have any girls and I don't know anyone who has kids that are involved in gymnastics.  I then started to play with it and looked at the B sides and really fell in love with this collection.  I have always loved purple and pink and this collection is full of it.

For my project I started with the the awesome chevron paper and then added a tag using Core'dinations.  I stamped and embossed it using a Lawn Fawn stamp set Reach for the Stars and then used the coordinating dies to cut the  stars.  Finally I added a doily and some fun enamel dots.  I really love how this turned out.  

I also made a video showing you the collection as well as how I made this card


supplies
paper- moxxie
cardstock- core'dinations

Tuesday You're my HOmerun!

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I had a soccer layout and today I have a Coach Pitch Baseball layout for you.  Jack LOVES sports and tries to play them all.  Two years ago Jillibean soup came out with THE cutest kraft collection.  I think I bought enough of it to scrap my boys FOREVER with this collection. 

I loved these photos that I took of Jack at one of his practices.  His first year the batting helmet with sooo big for his little head.  It kept falling down on his face and I was able to capture that and then I love the photo of him at bat.  He had a fun season. 

For my layout I love the mixture of the colors with the Kraft paper.  Really love the pops of white, blue and red!  For my layout I sort of scraplifted myself.  I took the sketch from yesterday and sort of flipped it!  I love that I can scraplift and it makes scrapping fun and easy!

Monday January Sketch with Moxxie

Happy Monday!

Today I have for you a fun new sketch and layout that I did for Moxxie.  The sketch is pretty fun so let's get to it.
For my layout I used the Soccer collection.  I don't know about you but I have a TON of soccer photos of my oldest son and this collection has allowed me to know them out!

For my layout I started with my white Core'dinations base and roughed it up a bit with the Sand it gadget to distress it.  I then splattered some grey mist.  I then decided to add a bit more roughness and tore the bottom edge.  I then decided to add some fun grey Core and then put down some of the funky black and white pattern paper.  Next I layered my paper and cut the large soccer ball from one of the pattern papers.  Finally I added a core tag and distressed it a bit and added some yummy twine!  Don't you love the green, grey, white, and black color combos?  I know I do!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a fun week with a bunch of new layouts!  I have really been busy and getting a TON of layouts completed!  See you tomorrow with a new layout from Jillibean Soup.  I broke out some more sports paper and continued with the sports theme!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Tuesday Moxxie Soccer Week!

Happy Tuesday!

All this week on the Moxxie Blog the design team is showing off the fun new sports collection Soccer!  This is a fun new collection that features bright green, black, white and grey colors.  I think this is a wonderful color combo.  Here is my first layout using this new collection
I started with some Core' Amour cardstock and lightly sanded it to bring out the stars.  I then started to layer my pattern paper and I added some circles.  I don't know why but I am really into circles lately.  It seems like I can't create a scrapbook project without adding some circles.  I then added a touch of bling and some flair and twine. 

The photo is of my son receiving his medal for a wonderful season of soccer.  He had a great time at soccer but on this day he also said that he was finished with soccer and wanted to concentrate on tennis and lacrosse.

Friday December Moxxie Sketch

Happy Friday!

Today I have for you a new Moxxie sketch and layout.  I don't know about you but I am REALLY into circles right now.  It seems that everything I have been creating has at least one circle in it.  So this month's sketch as a lot of circles!  If you don't like circles you can make them whatever you want.
 Here is my take on the sketch.  One of the things that I love most about Moxxie is their sporting collections.  My boys are always involved in sports and it is so nice to to grab the collection that matches the sport.  My little one starte T-ball this past summer.  He really doesn't like sports but his older brother has a room filled with trophies and medals from all the sports that he plays.  Well, Michael felt left out so he decided to try T-ball.  He wasn't thrilled about it but he really wanted that medal.  The medal hangs on his wall in his room and he is soooo proud of it.  The photo is of him hitting his ball.  He actually was a great little hitter!
For my layout I started with my Core'dinations cardstock (Black Magic and Essentials Darks).  I sanded then to bring out the inner core.  I then added my pattern paper from Moxxie!  The one piece was filled with circles and T-ball expressions and I took my circle punches and cut them out to make my embellishments.  I then added so sequins and wood venner.  Finally I used the run ons from the collection to make my title.

Thursday Fall Card with Moxxie.

Happy Thursday,

Today is a special day for me.  5 years ago today my Michael was born.  He was such a wonderful surprise to our family.     I was very nervous about this pregnancy because I was 42 years old.  The doctor told me I was high risk due to my age.  I was very nervous.  I did not let myself get excited until I reached the 5 month mark.  We had other miscarriages well into the 4th month before so I didn't want to get my hopes up.  With Jack I was on bed rest for months.  But after 8 months of worrying my little one was born and he was just perfect.  I truly believe that God had a plan for us and it was Michael.  Happy Birthday my little one I love you to pieces. 

Now back to crafting! LOL!!
This is a fall card I made using the Fall collection from Moxxie!  I used one of the 3x4 cards as the main focus for my card. 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a fun layout using some digi cut files and stamps from Some Odd Girl!  See you then,  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Wedndesday Moxxie Project Life

Happy Wednesday!

I don't know about you but I am so glad this week is moving on.  It is slow for me but so glad we have just two more days till the weekend! 

Moxxie has a wonderful Fall collection out right now and it is really great because there is a sheet of 4x6 and 3x4 cards that are just perfect for Project Life.  Now I have mentioned before that right now I am just using the page protectors as a way to add more photos into my albums.  Here is what I came up with.
Once again so sorry for the glare.  I just can't seem to get a photo without a glare.

Friday Moxxie Enjoy the Ride

Happy Friday!

If  you are looking for the SOME ODD GIRL AND PERFECT LAYERS hop please click HERE!

OK, I am showing my age here but I have Loverboy's mega 80's hit- "Everybody's working for the Weekend" running in my head right now!  I am soooo happy!  I can't wait till that bell rings at 2:40 and I pick up the kids and get home!  It has just been one of those weeks!

Today I have a layout to share from Moxxie.  The collection is from last year and it is one of my faves.  It is Child's Play. 

Last summer Michael learned to ride his "new" 2 wheeler bike with training wheels.  He thought he was just so cool!  I captured these photos of him while he was riding up and down our sidewalk.  He was allowed to go to the stop sign and back all by himself.  He loved it. 

For my layout I started with misting the white cardstock with some coordinating paint.  I then broke out my Silhouette and created the heart background and the title. I loved layering all the bright and cheery papers.

Thursday November Sketch with Moxxie

Happy Thursday.

Only One more day till the weekend ---but how is counting??? LOL!! I am!

Today I have a couple things to share with you today.  First I have my November sketch for Moxxie.
For my project I used the brand New collection Forever fall.  This collection totally Rocks if you love fall.  Lots of beautiful colors and lots of on trend pattern paper. 
For my layout I started with a piece of Core'dinations cardstock and sanded it just a bit to give it a distressed look.  I then cut out my title using my Silhouette.  I love the look of negative space.  Next I added my pattern paper on the right side and sewed it together.  finally I added my photo of my son playing in the leaves last year.  Finally I added some Moxxie stickers, wood veneer and pears.  A very clean look. 

You definitely need to head on over to the Moxxie Blog because all week the design team is sharing projects with this amazing collection and you could win the entire thing.  I think this is my new Moxxie FAVE!

Wednesday September MOxxie Sketch

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have to share with you the Moxxie October Sketch and layout.  Here is my sketch ...
and here is my layout.  I used the Moxxie Zoofari collection.  It was perfect for my photos that were taken last year at the Columbus Zoo.  We had such a great time.  Michael loved the children's petting zoo and he got to touch a turtle.  He LOVED it.  

I started with some Core'dinations cardstock and misted it and stamped on it.  I then follwed the sketch pretty closely.  I did add a couple of Core Tags ( I just love these tags!)  and finished it off with some Moxxie stickers and buttons.
