Fun in New Mexico

 My guy and I recently took a trip through Route 66 to New Mexico. I documented our stops in New Mexico for my Him and Me book (that is Sidekick-sized).


No trip to New Mexico is complete without the fun stop in Roswell, NM. The picture here is from the Alien Museum - what a fun place!


We also went through Lincoln, NM where Billy the Kid made his last great escape. It's a beautiful area of rugged terrain and a very cute little town. I got this "bookmark" from one of the museums in NM and used it in my page layout.

It opens up to show some fun pictures of our time in Lincoln.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Besides the bookmark, I think all of the projects I used on these pages are from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Craftily yours, Karen

Road Trip

 I am starting to document Mike and I's latest trip (a road trip through Route 66 in California, Arizona and New Mexico) using products from Elizabeth Craft Designs. More details of these pages can be found on their blog today.

During the whole trip, I had a vision in my head of a page using the Safari Jeep. I loved it so much that I ended up making TWO pages. First up is for my Sidekick-sized page for my "him and me" album.



Next up is the regular-sized Planner Essentials page for Sadie's album.



The products that I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are linked up below. Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Cover Page for Him and I

 I have been creating a Sidekick Essentials scrapbook using products from Elizabeth Craft Designs to document the fun adventures of my guy and me. I am now into my second book, and I realized I never did a cover page for the first book. To correct that, I took one of our first pictures and created this fun page:

For the page base, I used the Sidekick Essentials 25 (that is available as part of the December Day-by-Day Kit). 


On the back, I just printed our a few details of us and embellished it with the sweet little inkpot from the Hello Darling set (that is only available at your local scrapbook store currently.

Craftily yours, Karen

My First 2023 Christmas Card

I'm having such fun with the new stamps and coordinating dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today, I used the deer from the English Countryside 2 collection along with a sentiment from the Holiday Treats set to create a Christmas card:



And I decorated the inside with a couple strips of paper and another sentiment from the Holiday Treats set.


Love it!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

December - Days 29 to 31

Whoo Hoo! I've completed my December Day-by-Day using products from the Planner Essentials line from Elizabeth Craft Designs.


Day 29's prompt is stars.  I think I nailed it.  LOL these fun pictures are of my friend and I having such a good time at the Sacramento Kings game!

 Day 30's prompt is Highlight of 2022. My highlight of 2022 is a trip to France that I got to make with my amazing parents. It had been delayed for two years because of the pandemic, but if finally happened this year!


Day 31's prompt is New Years Even. Mike and I spent New Years Eve having fun putting together a puzzle.

Thanks for stopping by today!  

Craftily yours, Karen

More New Stamps - Valentine's Day!

I am absolutely loving these new stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today, I used one of the butterflies from English Countryside 2 to create this fun card that will be perfect for Valentine's Day! These stamps are newly available at many local craft stores and at some online retailers (like Scrapbook.com).


The paper is an older collection from Heartfelt Creations. I used the Dotted, Stitched and Fitted Hearts from Elizabeth Craft Designs and also decorated the inside with a couple more hearts and a couple strips of paper.

Well Hello Darling

Saying HELLO to the new wonderful stamps from the English Countryside 2 Collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs. All of the details of the creation of these cards can be found on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. (The paper is from an old Modascrap set I had on hand...)


This card was created with the fun new Hello Darling set.





I even decorated the inside with the same set!

New Release - Stamps!

 Elizabeth Craft Designs has a new line of stamps, and they are super fun! There are coordinating dies that make them even better! Here's my first sample with them:



This horse-fly is in the Lord's Light set. These stamps are newly available at many local craft stores and at some online retailers (like Scrapbook.com). I did a simple coloring of distress inks in Kitsch Flamingo and Fossilized Amber.


I added a strip of the same paper (that is a really old BG collection) to the inside along with a Happy Birthday sentiment. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
