Look Ma, I'm on the TV!

A bit late with this, but back in April, Martha Stewart had an all-Etsy show where the entire audience body was made up of Etsy sellers and segments featured Etsy seller how-to's and an Etsy employee fashion show.

I happened to appear on the show and officially crossed two things off my bucket list:
  • Be on TV
  • Meet Martha

I was over on the SEI blog yesterday sharing a layout that documented my experience using the lovely SEI Mayberry collection.

Materials Used: SEI Mayberry Collection

Thank you, Etsy!

Summer Lovin' = Sharing a Shake

I was over at the SEI blog last week sharing this summer-ready layout.

Materials Used: SEI Mayberry collection and club kit; Other: Janome Sew Mini sewing machine

I absolutely love the SEI Mayberry collection and club kit. The colors and design has just the right touch of nostalgia. The patterns are perfect to scrap that summer roadtrip or even your favorite diner/local burger joint, like I did with this layout.

It's all so simple too! With just a bit of cutting work, I had a bunch of diner-perfect signs that I then stitched onto a guest check/travel log/postcard pattern paper. Clean, simple, but still a bit of dimension and just the right amount of kitsch.

A Fond Farewell Blog Hop

As you've heard by now, Hambly Screen Prints is closing. Like many Hambly fans out there, I am so sad because I'll really miss all the truly unique overlays, one of my absolute favorite scrapbooking products. Allison's designs are wonderful and I can't wait to see what she does next. To bid the company a fond farewell, the design team is sharing some of our favorite Hambly projects.

My favorite Hambly project is this layout. Its title, "New Beginning" says it all and the Hambly Banners overlay is perfect for the layout theme I had in mind. See all of my Hambly projects here.

Simple Spring Shopping Mini Jotters

I've been out and about running errands or doing lots of shopping. (This always happens when the weather changes.) I made mini jotters to keep my hurried life in check. And their covers are perfectly bright and sunny just like the season thanks to the lovely cardstock from the SEI Vanilla Sunshine collection sprinkled in with some SEI Cheery Brights.

Check out the SEI blog for more inspiration!
