Pumpkin Chai Soy Candle By Katie Enzenberger

Fall is the season of pumpkin spice.  This Pumpkin Chai Soy candle is a cozy and inviting scent that gives a warm, fall fragrance.  Candles don’t get any better than this!  This candle is a mix of soy wax, pumpkin spice oil, vanilla, oil, ginger oil, and clove oil.  A perfect scent for the fall or anytime of the year!

Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops By Kelly Senyei

If you are a fan of the peanut butter and chocolate flavor combo (that covers just about everyone I know), you will love these.  This is not only a summer treat but you can enjoy these all year long. Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops are creamy and delicious, and they are packed with healthy goodness, too.  That makes them twice as fun!

Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops

Tangy yogurt, peanut butter, and three additional ingredients are whisked together into a light and creamy mix that is poured into popsicle molds and frozen until solid.  Waiting for the popsicles to freeze is the hardest part of this recipe! Let’s pop on over to Just A Taste where Kelly has the ingredients and recipe waiting for you.  This will be a fun treat to let your children jump in and help.  I am so excited to have my little grandkids over this weekend to give this a try.  I have to say I am looking forward to tasting one of them as well! 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have been inspired and found some great ideas for a fun crafting day!  Be sure to visit the individual blogs I have shared with you to see more details on these fabulous projects.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs to all,

Love Silly Smiles By Missy Whidden

Today it is time to grab some of your fun photos from this summer and get those special memories onto scrapbook layouts.  As scrapbookers we know it is all about sharing the memories and preserving the moments.  When people browse through your scrapbook pages and pause with admiration and delight, you know you have created something very special.

Love Silly Smiles

This fabulous layout is definitely an eye catcher created by the talented Missy Whidden.  Missy used several of the Maggie Holmes chipboard stickers.  I just love using chipboard as it creates great dimension. Her background has just the right amount of pink and gold spray to give it some contrast. Don’t forget to add fussy cut flowers to add some elegance to the layout.  Missy never ceases to amaze me with her talent.  I would like to say a big thank you to Missy for sharing this with us.  Please come with me over to Little Nugget Creations where you will see a video on just how Missy puts this gorgeous page together.

Dry Embossing With Foil By Melissa Kerman

Are you an embossing folder fan?  If so, today you will want to pay close attention to the fabulous cards created by Melissa Kerma.  Heat embossing with embossing folders is such a great technique and I am sure it will become one of your favorites as well.

Dry Embossing With Foil

There are so many different color variations you can use to create your beautiful card.  Put your own personality into it and see what you can come up with. Your outcome will be amazing and truly inspiring.  Here is another beautiful card that was created using this technique.

What a great way to add your own personal touch and then set it out to showcase your style of crafting.  Your family and friends will be begging you to make them one of their very own.

Autumn Wildlife

I love how Sue created both depth and dimension with her canvas.  The different layers really add to the dramatic effect; it’s very showy, isn’t it?  This is such a great mixed media project.  The mixed media background really complements the Halloween feel of the canvas.  Sue is an amazing designer with so much inspiration to share.  I highly recommend visiting her blog Birdcage Craft Studio where she shares a step-by-step tutorial on how she created this outstanding canvas.  I hope you will be inspired to give this a try.  Remember that creativity involves breaking out of your traditional style.  Never hesitate to try something new!

This is the ideal DIY for adding a touch of handcrafted beauty to your home.  Having a Cricut Explore® made it fast and easy to cut out all of my leaves.

Because You Are Amazing

Saturdays-with-LeAnn

Another wonderful weekend is here!  I hope you have had a great week and are ready to share part of your weekend with me.  Today I want to inspire you with projects from several fabulous designers.  Each designer has their own unique talent.  I hope you will take some time to enjoy their styles and create some of the new things I’m sharing with you today.

Oh Shine By Riikka Kovasin

I wanted to share this layout today because of the wonderful background that uses different techniques and mediums.  Creating your own background is a great way to add some visual interest to layouts.  Using layers of dimension will draw the viewer into the focal point of your layout.  My favorite is how Riikka uses her washi tape to give contrast and appeal to her layout.  Some people think of mixed media as being busy, but remember that it can be elegant and soothing and complement your photos.

Oh Shine

There are a lot of different techniques involved in this background, however, the photo still takes center stage.  Riikka kept things simple using soft colors and glitter.  I love when you can take time to be creative and make something brand new.  Now is the time to break out some of your fun mediums, distress inks, embossing powders, and your favorite stamps and stencils.  Have fun creating a beautiful background on your next layout!

Hello By Karen Letchworth

I have to admit my eyes were drawn immediately to this retro telephone image combined with the fun embellishments on this card, and I thought you would also be inspired by this sweet card designed by Karen Letchworth.  Who doesn’t love cards? I know we all enjoy pretty things with lovely details. There is nothing better than getting a handmade treasure in the mail that was made with love.

Hello

Don’t you just love being inspired by the creations of other talented artists?  Once you have found an adorable card, you can take the time to recreate it and add your own personal touch.  Now that you have fallen in love with this sweet card, let me take you on over to Karen’s blog My Cup Runneth Over where you will find the supplies that Karen used.  Karen always does such a perfect job with her layering skills. You will be in awe when you see all the different possibilities she created!

Because You Are Amazing by Amy Lee

Are you ready for some more fun and inspiration?  This is one of those “wow” cards that you can create using a few different techniques along with some calming colors.  I love how the mini scallop square is a die cut using watercolor paper, then heat embossed with roses all over the background. Amy also die cut some flourishes from watercolor paper and vellum using the leaf flourishes.

Because You Are Amazing

For Amy’s beautiful color she used distress inks and a mini blending tool, then brushed the same ink colors with a wet paint brush giving it a watercolor look.  Wouldn’t you love to be the one who receives this gorgeous card?  Click here and I will take you over to The Craft Bunny where you will be able to get all the supplies needed and find more fabulous projects by Amy.

Flower Box By Tami Mayberry

This darling little flower box is a perfect size for a small gift and card to give to someone special.  It is fast, fun, and very easy to create. You will want to make several while you have all your materials pulled out so you will have plenty on hand!

Flower card Box

You are just a few basic supplies away from creating this fun up-cycled flower box in just minutes.  Click here and I will take you over to the Sizzix blog where you can find all the dies and steps to create yours.  This is a project you will have so much fun creating!

Watermelon Cooler By Kelly Senyei

Here in Utah we have been having a heat wave and boy, is it HOT!  When I came upon these watermelon coolers I couldn’t have been happier.  What a refreshing treat on a hot summer day! This yummy cooler is the consistency of a slushie without the sugar high!

Watermelon Cooler

You can pour the coolers into chilled mason jars for a fun summertime twist.  Tie a different color of ribbon around the tops of the jars so everyone can keep track of their beverage. (I think it makes them look very cute as well!)  Come on over with me to Just A Taste where you can get the recipe from Kelly.  You will put smiles on your family’s faces.  Such a great way to cool down!

I have really enjoyed sharing these projects today and hope they have been inspiring for you.  Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  Looking for additional inspiration?  Visit Weekly Scrapper every day, and make sure to pop back here next Saturday; I promise I will have more inspiring projects for you!  Enjoy your weekend!

I am also excited to share some great projects that I discovered this week on several blogs. I love this saying: “All good things come to those who craft.” I think it’s the perfect motto for National Scrapbooking Day! I hope you will be inspired by the projects I have collected to share with you today.

All Smiles By Gabrielle Pollacco

The first project today is a beautiful layout created by Gabrielle Pollacco.  I love the vintage charm of this layout!  Gabrielle has added beautiful embellishments and details to this layout, and yet her priceless photo is still the first thing your eyes are drawn to. What a beautiful way to preserve a special photo.

All Smiles

Gabrielle used the classic papers from the Maja Design “Life by the Sea” collection.  You can add a little accent just by tearing the two papers and curling back the edges.  Chipboard pieces are one of my favorite embellishments and they add so much character and dimension to a layout. Spice them up by adding some color to get that perfect look for your layout.  Just have fun and remember there are no set rules when it comes to creating your layouts.  I am always inspired when I visit Gabrielle’s blog, so skip on over to Such a Pretty Mess and you will be inspired, too!

Soft And Sweet By Cherry Nelson

With Mother’s Day tomorrow, it’s not too late to create this darling card for a special mother.  This card is filled with a pretty, shabby chic look and is perfect for a wonderful mother.

Soft And Sweet

Whether you keep your card simple or very detailed, your creation will always stand out and be remembered.  Cards may be small but they are packed with so much love and inspiration.  Click here and I will escort you over to spend some time with Cherry Nelson.  You are sure to love her blog and will certainly be inspired by all of her beautiful projects!

Antique Window By Cindy

Today I would like to share how to take an old window and turn it from trash into treasure.  Who would have ever thought by adding some paint, beautiful lace, and fun hearts you could transform an old window into a treasured wall décor piece?  Old windows can really give character to a home.

Antique Window

I have a couple in my home and always get so many compliments on them.  One of the first remarks I usually get is who would have ever thought an old window could be so stunning.  The next question is “Where did you ever find an old window?”  The answer to the question is to look at yard sales.  Sometime you can even go to the dump and find them there.  Come along with me over to DIY Beautify where Cindy will give you instructions on how she created her outstanding antique window.  Be sure to browse her blog for more wonderful and inspirational ideas.  You will certainly have a blast creating some new things for your home!

Peach Tart By Kelly Senyei

OK, my crafty friends, it is time to take a break and go into the kitchen and whip up a yummy dessert for your weekend.  This Five-Ingredient Peach Tart is one that everyone is going to love.  Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and wow, you have won everyone’s heart!

Peach Tart

Slices of juicy peaches do all of the talking.  With a layer of buttery puff pastry for the bottom, lemon juice, an egg, and a dusting of confectioner’s sugar to top it off, this is pure flavor of perfection. It is so simple and very, very yummy!  How much better does this get?  You will serve one amazing dessert!

I hope you have been inspired today.  I will be at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo in Denver on May 13th and 14th. Please stop at the Registration Desk and say hello, I would love to see you! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you special moms; I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Mini Storage Cabinet By Christy James

I also want to share a fun storage/organization cabinet using reclaimed wood.  Would you ever have imagined that something this cute would be made from an old wooden crate?  This is something you can hang on your wall or just sit on the counter.  It gives the room such a fun, shabby chic look and will also give you a small space to tuck things away.

Mini Storage Cabinet

This can be used not only for the bathroom but in any room of your home.  Create two then hang them on the wall for double the space and double the charm.  Let’s pop on over to Confessions Of A Serial Do It Yourselfer where you will find step-by-step instructions on how to create this fabulous mini storage cabinet.  Christy James is very talented from sewing, to painting, reinventing, rebuilding, craftiness and everything in between.  You will be so inspired by her projects!
