So You / My Creative Scrapbook

It's Friday...yay!  And it's a Teacher Work Day, so the kids are home today.  I'm glad because it's another cold day out there.  I'm glad we can stay warm inside...and it's ironic that I'm sitting here drinking a frozen fruit/banana/spinach smoothie for breakfast.  It's making me colder!  I wish I liked coffee....

I'm sharing another page I created using the January Creative Kit from My Creative Scrapbook today. The Daily Grind collection from Simple Stories is just so fun!  I also put together a small and simple tutorial on how to give some color to those cute little wooden word bubbles from Studio Calico.

I love this arrow background paper!  I pulled out my watercolors and added some coordinating colors behind my photo cluster in the center.  Watercolors are SO easy and fun to use...and they're fast.

I backed this TODAY sticker with some black paper to make it pop, and I raised it up using pop dots.

Layers and stickers...I really love that Simple Stories always includes a ton of cute little word phrase stickers.  I cut the camera circle piece from patterned paper and pop dotted it up.

I cut my title on my Cameo using white cardstock and then painted it with blue watercolor.  I also added some red floss/thread...another great and easy (and cheap) way to add a pop of color!  And it's a cool shape, too :)

Check out the simple tutorial below on various ways to color these wooden pieces.

This is really easy...just a quick step-by-step way to add different colors to your embellishments...

All of the kits at My Creative Scrapbook are located HERE...go check them all out and see for yourself how great they all are :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and Happy Friday!


  1. I love this!!! The negative diecut pieces are great!

  2. Great page,, Missy! The spots of color on the BG are perfect!

  3. This is so cute, Missy!! I love that fun arrow background too and the water colors you added! And great ideas for adding color to the wood veneers!!

  4. I love them! They're so cute. These are definitely some cute little additions to one great scrapbook! I think more than just cute pictures, it's those little quotes and phrases that can truly give meaning to a nice scrapbook entry. See how cute and quirky your page looks with the addition of those little phrases? Great job!
