Beatrice Lawson said...

Wait, you made ALL of this in one day? I am floored.... The second and third layout are my favourites but it was a close call. Loved all the cards but if I could pick one to receive, it would be the last one - I really liked the pink and black hearts together.

Carol Meadows said...

Cannot believe you did this ALL in one day! Keep going back to the Hello card & You are awesome card. Looks like a really nice kit. Carol M in TX/carolswingster77@aol.com

Stephanie Waterhouse said...

Hello! You are so creative! I love the layout you did of your daughter holding the canvas. It has inspired me to do a similar page for our "Family Rules". Thank you for the opportunity to win some wonderful goodies!

Lisa P said...

I love your style. I definitely will be following you. I love the note to self and how you created the leaves with the butterfly in the top left. Looks awesome. I also would say the card sith the chevron or arrow stamps is so cute. I love how simple it is yet makes such a cute statement. Looking forward to continuing to see your designs.

Kate said...

How do you pick a fave?!?!? I adore the little banner on Love You More. Colour combo on Keep Trying is fab. What is is about the stripes on Puzzle Pieces? I don't know, I just love them and they work so well with the colourful paper/ribbon/banner thingies. The story and photo perspective on Simply Adore You is perfect. And the card with the envelope on the front is my fave, hello gift card! You rocked this out!!!

Jennifer F said...

They are all super great, but I love the colour of the photos on "keep trying". Thanks for sharing. :)

Kymberley M said...

You have made some amazing beautiful things using this kit!! I would have to say my favorite ( sorry I have 2 lol) would be Always Do Your Own Kind of Thing and the Cousins Lay outs.

Rachel D. said...

I really like what you have done with this kit. The "note to self" pafe is my favorite one. I love your style!

Melanie said...

Beautiful and hard to pick a favorite, but my faves are puzzle pieces and simply adore you!! CS sent me over and so glad I did!!

Beth Stel said...

I absolutely love all your layouts, but I'll go with Love You More as my favourite as I can see myself lifting that one in the near future! :)mo

Lynne J said...

Wow-so many awesome projects created from one kit! Hard to pick a fave, but I'd say the one layout with all the banner strips.."Happy" And the titlework on the "laughable huggable" was so cool and eyecatching!!

H Barnes said...

I honestly LOVE everything that you've done here. Really for a kit that all goes together - the pages all look extremely different. My favorite though is the one of your daughter holding the canvas! Just beautiful! TY for the ideas!

Anonymous said...

I love the "Love you More" They are all aweseome though!

Gillian Smith said...

Great job! :) Love what you did with the paper and different elements. If I must pick a favorite..."be your own kind of beautiful" CS sent me over to check out your blog...glad they did!

Donna D from Ottawa said...

Thinking I love the Simply Adore you... I used to read all those love hearts with my kids too! Great memories - wish I had photographed them!

Linda Spence said...

I can't decide between "Love You More" and "Keep Trying"...but I love them all; you are very talented; thanks for sharing your great ideas with this kit.

Ann Peace said...

OMG! This is incredible...the paper, embellies, etc. Wow...and love the layouts and cards. You've inspired me to see if I can do this in 24 hours! Whoop Whoop!

Ange said...

You are nuts if you think I can just pick one! Love the strip design you use so well. Love the butterfly and leaves on the second layout. Absolutely adore the Simply Adore You layout and love the cards. Especially the You Are So Awesome one. Cute stuff!!!

Anonymous said...

The "Love You More" is lovely, and the Keep Trying is a great layout too. Really tells the story!! I'm envious of anyone who can do such lovely work from just one picture. I always seem to end up with an empty page and go searching for more photos to fill it up. What a great kit that was, and what creative use it was put to.

Christine S.

Harley said...

Loved them all but since I have to pick one...Love the Keep Trying. They all rocked!

Celeste Depatie said...

Wow girl. That's impressive to create all those in 24 hours. My favorite is "note to self". Love the black and white with just a touch of pink. Very eye catching.

Lupe Ruge said...

LOVE IT!! Would love to win, thanks for the chance.

Taina K. said...

They all are lovely, but my favourite is "Keep trying".

marylouh said...

A great giveaway. I love embellishing my greeting cards and I'd have to much to pick from

Love your projects. I can see why you got so much done in 24 hours.

michib said...

Gorgeous layouts! I love the "huggable, squeezable..." one, but also the cards. So glad I discovered your blog thanks to Canadian Scrapbooker.

Michelle said...

The first two LOs are my fav....but they are ALL gorgeous!!!! I am amazed at how fast you created all these projects!!!!Holy smokes...you are a lean mean creating machine!!!!

Amanda Hodgson said...

Hard to decide. I think Keep Trying is my favourite. Thanks for the chance to win.

Angel said...

Can I say I love it all? WOW! You've really been a busy gal. My top pick would be the happy strips layout and the adore butterfly card :)

Dalena said...

I liked the simplicity of the "Do your own thang" page, although all of them are wonderful. And I like the cards, too!

Diane Standish said...

I love the cards! they are so creative-I will probably scraplift your ideas! Beautiful!

Jocy said...

Note to self is my fav layout and I love all of the cards.

Teresa said...

Love them all...Simply Adore You would be #1 as I'm a sucker for anything diecut. I'm a card maker so I'm in love with your all your cards and definitely see elements from your layouts that will so work on cards. Thanks for your inspiration and the chance to win!

Cazzy said...

I love Note to Self, love the lace look. I am not a scrapbooker though, I am envious of those who can get into it!

Scrappy Chick said...

I absolutely love how much you were able to create from this one kit!!

I'm not normally a card maker but I adored the card that had the bingo card look to it! So sweet!!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Jodi QUinlan said...

I love the "Be your own kind of beautiful" layout - what a wonderful inspiration for your daughter and a great memory for her to cherish.

Rebecca Daly said...

love the simply adore you layout, so pretty

Kim said...

They are all beautiful! I really love banners/penants--so each one has something I like. However, I am really drawn to "I love you more" and "Puzzle Pieces" I love the b/w pic that fills the entire width of the LO. The minimalist approach on these two LOs really lets the focus of the picture shine! (Note that both have my favorite, a banner and the layered penant shapes.)

Beth said...

Love them all....My favorite is Love You More....

Beth said...

Love them all....but my favorite is love you more!!!

Naomi said...

The layouts are amazing! Thanks for sharing the wealth!

CorinaT said...

Oh, your layouts are great. I always love finding a blog that I can relate to :o) My fave layout is definitely "Do Your Own Thang"....LOVE (and will likely scraplift soon lol).

Pinky said...

You expect us to pick just one favorite? Impossible. They are all great. I am however drawn to the one titled "note to self" simply because it is a page focused on you. So often our pages are based on others. It is nice to see a little something in our memory album that highlights the person creating the album. Thanks for the opportunity to win this fantastic prize!

linda161 said...

My favorite is "Love You More." You did an amazing job.

Casey said...

Adore the Puzzle Pieces layout, but of course, they are all great!

Rhea Skomorowski said...

All the projects are fantastic, and totally plan on lifting ;) the note to self is really striking with the black pattern.

Ronda said...

Love your blog! great layouts - and those cards... I think the Love Bingo Card is my favorite of all!

Beverly32440 said...

I love the layouts! Great choices to scraplift from! I love all the papers and embellishments! Can't choose just one! Thanks for the giveaway!

They are all so wonderful choosing a favourite is tough - I guess it would be Keep Trying with such a winter feel.

Loved all the cards.

Doodles said...

I love your "keep trying" layout. It captures one of those precious moments that us mothers get to experience as we cheer on our little ones. Adorable!

Brenda Ferguson said...

I think I like "Keep Trying" the best. Maybe because it is blue and I have been flooded with pink and red Valentine's ideas lately...Or maybe because it looks like a layout that I could recreate!

Lisa Gouthro McLean said...

I love the first scrapbook layout LOVE YOU MORE...I love the picture size...I do love the rest of your cards and Layouts too!

SharonDoesBaskets said...

Everything is great, actually!! Love *something* about every LO and card, but the subject matter & pic on LOVE YOU MORE really sets it apart. I'm also drawn to the Keep Trying LO. Great stuff...love that black doily transparency (right?), too! :)

Sonia said...

Such fabulous products- everything is great! My favorites are the cards, especially I adore you/I heart you.

Donna MacKay said...

Scroll, baby scroll. What a popular site, glad I opened up the door. I'm currently working on a scrapbook for my Auntie, that's going to be 100 years old on Feb 23, she still lives independent and is still driving, yes you read that correctly. Love your creative ideas. I did a cousins rock page of the old B&W photos, so I'm choosing that one. And my aunt was a champion crochet player through her life and also would drive up any dirt road in her camperized van, if she heard there was a species of bird, not yet checked off her list, so I also choose - I'ts Your Thing - Do what you wanna Do - hear the song? Cheers, Donna

Grandma Jean said...

I like the one with the black lacy mandala circles on it. Those are super!

Lee-Anne Thornton said...

I love them all and am very amazed you created all this in 24 hours. I am such a slow scrapper. My favorite is your I Adore You Card and the Love You More layout.

Michelle said...

Love them all ...but the first two Los are my fave. You are a mean ,lean scrapping machine! Can NOT believe you created all this so fast!

CherryTat said...

Wow, they are all gorgoeus, but I would have to pick "puzzle pieces". That is a lot to get done in 24 hours, wow!

Cheryl Simpkins said...

Love you more is my favourite but they are all fantastic!

Joan said...

What a hard choice to make. "Love You More" is the one I pick. They are absolutely all beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies.

Tina Mac said...

They are all so beautiful! But, the "Love you more" layout resonates so perfectly with me as it is what I say to my 9-year-old daughter every day!

Lukie said...

All your projects are beautiful! love the first layout - love the use of b&w photo and pink elements and all the cards are wonderful.
