I am going to share with you the technique I used to create the background in my Caboose Junction layout!
Here are the supplies I used...
I punched a circle (you can use any shape) into a piece of scrap cardstock. A background stamp and ink.  I like to use the stamp in the circle because it gives me more control.  It bothers me when I use a background stamp (like the one you see in the picture) and the edge of the stamp shows up on my layout!  This technique eliminates that!
This is what it looks like after I have stamped using the circle as a stencil.
I added some mist, and my background is complete!

I am going to share a technique for making a fun pattern from striped pattern paper!!
I started with this paper...
I cut a strip with one black and one white stripe.  I cut that in half so I had two 6 inch strips.
I overlapped one of the strips on top of the other, creating a "V".
I cut my "V" in half.
This is what it will look like.  Repeat this process until you have enough to make your layout.
I layered mine over the gorgeous floral print paper!

LOVE Mini Album-MCS

I fell in love with the Album kit this month at My Creative Scrapbook!!  It is full of flowers and hearts, so I decided to make a mini album that will have photos of my husband and I!  My poor hubby just doesn't make it to many of my scrapbook projects, so this was a fun project to create!
I wanted to add something to my album to make it a little more personal, so I decided to add a few quotes that I had pinned on Pinterest (I knew the hours of searching and pinning would be beneficial some day)!  After I embellished each page I added a quote
The cool thing about the album that comes in the kit is that it already has this cool checked paper on it!  To dress it up a little I used a stencil with a pen to add just a little detail on it!  I titled my album LOVE and added the girl an boy potty people since it is about my hubby and I! 

This is the layout for the entire album, a photo mat on the left, with a cluster of embellishments and a quote on the right!

Layering embellishments is very easy with this kit, since there is so much product in it!!

Some of the pages I fussy cut out of the pattern paper, like the banner here!

I love the way the handwritten quotes look in this album, it really does give it that personal touch I was going for!

I can't wait to add my photos!

This album kit could just as easily be used for photos of your kids, grandkids or pets!!  So hurry and get yours before they are gone!!
