Fall Colors & Some Bling!

I just love these colors from the Pebbles kit!
I decided to use them for a Fall LO of our daughter playing dress up!
This kit came with so much bling I decided to use a lot of it on this LO!
All girls love bling!
I added the bling to the border strip and to the cluster of embellishments & the title!
Everything on this LO came with the kit except for the rhinestones on the letters and the green pom poms! The rhinestones are by Queen & Company that I bought from the Queen Scraps store!
If you what a kit that you can scrap all Seasons with then this is the kit to buy!!
This kit is so versatile with all the patterns and colors!
Hurry this kit is going fast!!

Have a Blessed day!

A Break from the Holiday Stuff...

So I don't know if you're feeling a little sick of green and red like I am.  My craft space is covered in it these days as I try to finish up all my Christmas gift projects before it gets too crazy around here.  I'm getting tired of Christmas colors already (and it's my favorite holiday of all time) and I have yet to decorate my house - which by the way becomes a veritable Christmas-fest.  This months kit is such a nice diversion from the red and green I am engulfed in right now - such gorgeous springy colors, muted tones and great patterns.  Enjoy this Easter layout I did using the kit, isn't it super Spring-y?

I used some of the Smooch Spritz in Spun Sugar (available in the Queen Scraps store) on the background cardstock just to soften it up a bit before I added all the patterned paper.  Pick up your kit before they are all gone and take a break from the red and green of holiday projects for just a bit and let your mind wander to Springtime.

Another Pebbles LO fun with Ink & Mist!!

I created this LO using scraps from the Pebbles kit!!
I really wanted to use a lot of inking & misting!
I grabbed the Smooch Spritz that I bought from the Queen Scraps Store
and had fun!!
I used a tube to create the circles and used Electric blue and Pink Sprinkles and mixed the two for the light burgundy color!
The misting on the background I used Gingersnap!
If you haven't tried misting yet check out all the colors at the Queen Scraps Store!!

Have a Wonderful day!!

More Pebbles fun...

Today I wanted to make a little gift for a stocking stuffer for Christmas. A while ago I had grabbed some of these fun clear checkbook covers. They are simply perfect to alter for anyone and love how this months kits make the cover look. So here it is.

I did a little border punching, cut out some of the beautiful blue flowers from one of the papers, added the butterfly stickers and the pearl for the center of the flower. Love how it turned out and what a fabulous gift to give.

Versatility at Its Finest

I LOVED working with the November forced me to think out of my comfort zone as I usually gravitate towards the more masculine papers but look how cute this worked out for a layout about my son and fishing.

The "B" sides of these Pebbles papers rock...super cute, fun graphics that can go anywhere.  May Bouquet isn't just for your Spring layouts you can tailor it to suit whatever photos you're working with.  I even used an ink pad and my heat tool to make the sparkly sequins green and distort their shape.  Hurry on over to the store and grab some for yourself before it's all gone.

Fall is in the air!

Here is a Fall LO using the Pebbles kit!
I created this LO using a sketch by The Scrappiest!
The colors in these papers goes so well for a Fall theme LO!
Our daughter is painting her pumpkin and this is one of her favorite Fall activites with pumpkins!
Everything on this LO came with the kit except for the paper flowers, blue rhinestone, and the blue cardstock.
I ruffled the striped paper over the blue cardstock because I wanted the paper to flow like a ribbon!
Did you see some of the fun embellishments that came with this kit?!
The acrylic flowers, the bling, and the yellow Jenni Bowlin Butterflies!
This kit has a lot of fun embellishments I'm sure all of you will love!

Hope you are enjoying your week!

Great Colors for Any Season!

When my Pebbles May Bouquet kit arrived I immediately thought of Spring and Easter layouts because of the cute florals and soft color palette.  Things changed when I actually sat down to design my layouts.  We were knee deep in changing leaves and the Fall decorations had made their way out of the basement and onto my shelves so I was feeling the golds and sage greens of Autumn.  This kit worked perfectly for highlighting some of our fun Fall activities.  Here is just one of the many layouts I created...

The little pumpkin accents were so easy to create using a 1" circle punch, a Copic marker, a little Smooch Spritz, and a bling stem cut from the floral bling that comes with the kit.  I think they turned out super cute and they were so simple!  Who would have thought...May Bouquet in the Fall.  Hurry over to the Queen Scraps store and snatch up the November kit before they are all gone.

Not to mention all of the bling and fun flowers! You will truly love this kit. Be sure your first online to get yours.

Thursday, October 28, 2010


Here's a quick, little peek at what the November Queen Scraps kit has in store for you.  Such a great color palette and great combination of papers to work with.  I found the kit to be very versatile as you'll see when reveals take place.  The collection is Pebbles May Bouquet which at first I thought I'd use on "girly" layouts but, for the most part, my craftiness took a totally different turn once I started playing with all the goodies.  I can't wait for you to see it!

Vegas Baby!!!

The mix of colors in the October LYB kit totally lent themselves to this fun layout about the gorgeous things I saw on my recent trip to Vegas.  I love how the strips of patterned paper pull the colors from my photos.  I was able to mix in embellishments from previous months' kits as well and they colors all blended fabulously.  You can't beat that!

Fun with Flowers and Alcohol Inks!

Here is another LO using the Little yellow Bicycle Free Spirit Kit!
This is such a fun kit with so many fun colors and embellishments!
I fussy cut the flowers on the center and right side of the LO!
I added some Tim Holtz alcohol inks to the two acrylic flowers and added a brad!
If you dont have alcohol inks you can add some ink or decorate with some paper or rub ons!
The acrylic flowers are easy to work with and really add a lot of fun to your LO's and cards!

Thanks for visiting the Queen Scraps Blog!!
Have a wonderful Day!

girl scouts rule

my daughter loves girl scouts!! she also loves when i make pages for her girl scouts album. i used this weeks nuts about sketches, sketch i added some leaves to my rolled flowers. i cut the leafe shape, and pinched the ends to give them some dimension.


Friday, October 15, 2010


So many fun different layouts you can make with this fabulous jam packed kit! The fun thing for me on the layout is that my daughter for some reason can't take a picture without giving me the peace sign. I have to take several pictures all the time in order to get a "normal" shot of her.

This layout is a simple one. I wanted it to focus on the picture and title. I added some brads across the bottom and did a little border punching. I again used one of the stickers from the sticker sheet and placed it under the title.

She's sweet...

Here's another layout using this months Little Yellow Bicycle kit.  I handmade the "strip" flowers using the patterned paper then added the wonderful flowers that came in the kit to the top for more pop.  I just love the colors in the kit - fun, fresh and funky.  Check it out for yourself!

A little Misting and Masking Fun!

Here is a Free Spirit LO using the lace paper that came with the kit I used for masking!
The green strip in the middle was my lace paper design!
I used Pink Sprinkles Smooch Spritz from the Queen Scraps store!
The cardstock came with the kit and I used some punch detail.
I added the title No fear because my daughter loves rock climbing and
here she is almost to the top!

Hope you have had a chance to view this kit at the Queen Scraps store!
It is such a fun kit and so versatile!
Have a wonderful day!!

2 of a kind

So...todays layout is a picture of my mom and aunt. I love the old black & white photo booth pic. This months kit totally reminds me of them back in the day. I'm thinking this picture is at least 30+ years old....which means there were probably alot of peace signs around that time :)

So I love open space on my layouts and you know it seems I can't do a layout without a little misting on it! I added a little journaling around the top left corner of the paper. The sticker sheet in this kit is fabulous...I cut the number 2 out of one of the sayings just so I could use the number.

Well ladies that is my creation for the day, hope you all have a fabulous weekend. :)

A Free Spirit & Her Giggles...

This little girl is truly a free spirit and the wonderful Little Yellow Bicycle kit available here was just perfect for a layout all about her.  I did some serious altering/distressing of the papers for this layout.  First I covered the white cardstock in Smooch Spritz Gingersnap which is currently out of stock in the Queen Scraps store but there are so many other colors to choose from here.  Then I used my edge distressing tool and a little ink to rough up the 2" squares of patterned paper.  I created my own flowers using my scalloped circle punch, a pair of scissors, and some Glossy Accents.   The blue cardstock was cut, folded and sewn onto the layout to give the appearance of ribbon and then I used the lower case "b's" flipped over to serve as the other "g's" in my title.  A few hand drawn lines and brads finished off the framing of this adorable little girl and her giggles.  Enjoy!!!

Fun Papers and a LO to share from Little Yellow Bicycle!!

Here is some more fun papers from the Little Yellow Bicycle Kit!!
I used the green lace paper and the Loose Leaf Paper!
The designs on the Loose Leaf paper that I added colors to were blue and white and I wanted to add some more color!
For the clouds I used some Martha Stewart blue ink and I used several different colors with the Copic Markers on the swirls and flowers!
The Copic Markers I purchased from the Queen Scraps store and they have many more colors!
To add some more color I added some brads around the bottom picture,
the journal card, and added a blue acrylic flower to the right hand corner using alcohol ink.
The brads, acrylic flower, and journal card also came with the kit!
The Loose Leaf paper is so fun and so versatile so many different things you could use to add more color!

Thanks for coming by and have a Wonderful Day!

More with the Little Yellow Bicycle Kit!

When I saw this kit, I was SO excited!!  The colors in this kit are perfect for my 14 year old... all of her favorites!  So, I decided to create a mini album for pics of her and her friends!  I've had this album in my stash forever and this was the perfect opportunity to use it!  With the exception of the album itself, some punches and my Cricut Expression, everything you see is in this groovy kit!!


Thanks for Looking and Have A Great Day!
