2 new scrapbook layouts and Easter Treat Boxes

Hey everyone! Hope you all had an amazingly crafty weekend! I sure did. I attended a crop with Bona and had a blast! And the best part of all, I got some creating done -- yay! And of course, I had my huge bag of I Am Roses flowers in tow, so you know I was showing my layouts some love by using them. hehe!

First up is this layout I created of myself, Bona and Rina taken at CHA. We had such an amazing time at CHA, and I completely ADORE this pic of the three of us... I just had to make a layout!

The size of the layout is 8x8. I used Prima's Romantique papers and a ton of I Am Roses... here are some pics:


Prima Romantique papers, tiles and Shabby Chic Treasures
Maya Road flower trim
Recollections pearl bling
Spellbinders Nestabilities die
Lindy Stamp Gang - Glitz Spritz (Cactus Gold) & Starburst Spray (Opal Sea Oats)
Paper doily
Martha Stewart leaf punch
Lace from my stash

Next up is this 6x6 layout I created of me with my family during my parents' 42nd wedding anniversary lunch in January. We don't take photos as a family often (we are together often and take lots of pictures, but to get the 5 of us in a pic is VERY rare!) So, I decided to scrap this photo in a cute little 6x6 layout. Here are some pics...


Simple Stories "Generations" papers
MFT Decorative Doily Die-Namics
Prima Say It In Pearls
Metal Butterfly
Martha Stewart leaf punch
Lace from Hobby Lobby

Next up (and last but not least!) are these Easter Treat boxes that I created for Bona and Brandy. I never come empty handed to a crop and you can never go wrong with chocolate, right?! LOL! Here are some pics...


Color Bok "Vintage Parlour" paper collection
AccuCut Box #13 die & Borders die (belly band)
Flower trim from
MFT Notched Tag Die-Namics / Sentiment from a Pure Innocence set
Easter Chocolate
Inside of box lined with Frog Feathers rosette trim

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my projects!

Don't forget, the I Am Roses design team is hosting a Green, Gold and Glitter challenge over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog. You won't want to miss out on your chance to win some I Am Roses products!

Here's to wishing you an awesome and amazingly crafty week! CHEERS!

hugs! ❤

Hi Arlene, Those small ivory flowers with the pearl centres that you used, are they from IAR? I tried to look for them on the website but couldn't find them. Could you please give me a product code? Thanks!

I love your projects! You're amazing!
Can you tell us how is the process to create, what is your inspiration, if you make some sketch before work...
