Hey Y’all! It’s Courtney here with another layout and today I am using Country Christmas. This collection is so beautiful and vintage. It’s has the perfect Christmas colors.

I used the 6x8 paper pad to punch my 1 inch circles, I love how the prints are smaller and you get more in the circle. I paired those circles with all of the ephemera that I picked out and set it up  diagonally. I added a few other pieces of ephemera to add detail. I used the Christmas Greetings from the mini sticker tablet.

The background paper is the Scarlet/Dots paper from the Simple Basics Kit and it’s cut down by ½ inch on the sides so I could layer it on the 2x2 element page.  I fished the layout by ripping two spots on the top and bottom and adding some gold splatters. I hope you get inspired by this layout.



Hey y’all! Courtney here again and today I am sharing a layout that I created using Autumn Splendor collection. This collection reminds me of my child hood. We always had these amazing vintage calendars in our house and every year when they were done my mom would cut them up to use as ephemera or decoupage the cutouts on something artistic.

For this layout, I used  a cut file from Paper Issues called You and Me and cut it out in black to make it pop off the page. Then I backed the cut file in Seasons if Change, the B side of the 4x4 elements, Grateful Hearts, Autumn Leaves, and the b side of the 2x2 elements. I used the Elm/Cream Ledger paper from the SN@P Basics as my background.

I matted my photos on a piece of vellum and then on the Grateful Hearts paper. I layered them on either side of the cut file.

I created three clusters with another cut file from Paper Issues called Collecting Leaves that I cut out of the Turquoise Dots paper. I then layered different pieces of ephemera from the bits and pieces and the foliage bits and pieces.

I added a few pieces from the 6x12 chipboard and the combo sticker sheet. I always have to add enamel dots and the ones from Say Cheese match so perfectly.

I finished the layout with a little cluster in the top right corner and then splattered my gold mist. I hope you enjoyed this layout and I can’t wait to see what you create.


Hey y’all! It’s Courtney again sharing the absolute perfect fall collection! Fall Farmhouse is the perfect collection to scrapbook my fall family portraits. Fall Farmhouse has everything I love in one collection, floral, Buffalo plaid, polka dots, and pumpkins.

For this layout, I decided to go with the Lil’ Pumpkin paper and I used the beautiful buffalo plaid that is on the B side. Next, I layered three papers, Simply Thankful,  the b side of  the 4x6 element’s, and the peach dot Paper.

After I layered those papers then came the fun part of adding all of the fun elements. I used themini   sticker tablet, the journal bits and pieces, the bits and pieces, the  6x12 chipboard,  the enamel dots, and the combo sticker sheet

I matted two 4x6 photos and then began with embellishments. I alternated my pumpkins with foam tape or just regular adhesive. I loved mixing all of the different types of embellishments to give my layout a layered look.

I tied everything together with a few enamel dots from the collection and a little bit of gold mist.

I hope you love this collection as much as I do!
