Lovin It Again

I mentioned in my last post that I have been really enjoying this hobby again.  I always love it, but I wasn't in love with it.  I think that moving and being crazed at home drained me of my energy.  But about a month ago, I decided to have fun again, just create!  It is just paper after all and I don't need a fancy space to create in (although I can't wait to make one).  I just need my imagination and supplies.

I have been playing with space, movement and design.  Like anything, I think regrouping and trying new things keep us fresh in life!  So here are some layouts using one of my fav companies, Fancy Pants.  Their stuff always gets me going!

Isn't that monkey cute???  I love these photos...totally taken on Shutter speed as my kids drove an kiddie ATV.  Their fun was totally captured!

I am loving mist and have been playing with it all the time!  I used a star as a mask and then hand-stitched around the edge!  This layout was inspired by the star rub-ons!  I did some pen work to make them pop even more!

Hope you find some scrappy time this weekend!  I'll be sure to do the same myself!


  1. well with all the construction and mess you had going on girl and moving and carrying on... its hard to be creative and enjoy it when you have all that.
    It just sucks all the energy out of you! We are doing our living room right now and its just draining.
    Your page is adorable I LOVE LOVE that monkey so cute almost as cute as your lil monkey

  2. love, love that star! so cool. sometimes you do just need a break...sometimes my body is still going but my brain is just dead!

  3. I love these. I love the colors and the photos and yes I love that little monkey. SO cute.

  4. Gorgeous work with Fancy Pants, Stacey! Love all the misting and the stars on the second layout :)

  5. I am sure that we all go through it at some point stacey, I just moved and had so much going on, I had not scrapped in almost 3 weeks, it had been years since I had gone that long with no MOJO. But with the reduction of stress and a few good nights sleeps. It has returned. I hope the same goes for you. It takes energy and brain power to create, and sometimes as busy working Moms and wives it simply runs out. Big hugs and great layout.

  6. Wow these are just beautiful and I adore all the details....what size are the small pics that you used...

    The stitching is perfect!!!

    Wishing you a great one!
