Good morning! Hopefully I’m still sleeping when this post goes live. If not, hopefully I’m on my way back to bed. Today I get to show you a darling scrapbook layout I made with the Myths & Magic suite of products along with the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle. Myths & Magic is my favorite, and Sunshine & Rainbows is definitely in my top 5. Especially now that I’ve used it.
*The 12″x12″ cardstock is from the Painted With Love cardstock assortment. I was so happy to be able to get Melon Mambo 12″x12″ cardstock again. The cloud paper is from the Myths & Magic paper, and the starry paper is from the Sale-A-Bration paper, Bubbles & Fizz (FREE with a $50 purchase).
*For the clouds along the bottom, I used the Rainbow Builder framelits — there are some big cloud edgelits that come in the set. I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Whisper White 12″x12″ paper for the clouds. To get the white cloud layer to stick to the bottom glimmer paper layer, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen. You have to hold it on there and wait a while for it to dry, but it will stay stuck.
*The name/date tabs on the photos are punched with the Circle Tab Punch.
*I’m totally gaga over this fat unicorn! She’s from Magical Day. I stamped her in Rich Razzleberry, then colored her in with Rich Razzleberry (Light and Dark) and Pink Pirouette (Light and Dark) Stampin’ Blends. Plus Bermuda Bay (Light/Dark) Stampin’ Blends on the horn.
*The Rainbow Builder framelits make the rainbow SO easy! There are 7 sizes, and they nest perfectly for a ROYGBIV rainbow. I did my rainbow in Melon Mambo, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Lemon-Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry. I cut all of the pieces, then glued them down to the largest circle from the Layering Circles framelits. I chopped off the excess circle, then cut the half-circle off in the center of the rainbow. When you do it this way, you can move the rainbow around to your heart’s content until you decide exactly where you want it. That’s Wink of Stella all over the rainbow and the unicorn’s hair.
*The title is from Magical Day, and after I cut it out with the die from the framelits, I stamped “you are” again, then snipped it out and popped it up on Mini Dimensionals. I cut a second banner out of Lemon-Lime Twist, snipped it apart in the middle, and glued it to the top and bottom of the back of the title.
*You could easily convert this title section to a card. In fact, I’m sure I will!
The tiny sun is from Sunshine & Rainbows, and the sunburst behind it, stamped in Melon Mambo, is from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Amazing You (FREE with $50 purchase!). It adds a little texture and a little fun.
As you do.

My first love in papercrafting is actually scrapbooking. I love to make cards, too, but scrapbooking is why I got into this whole world in the first place. It’s still my favorite. This is a two-page layout (inspiration from Lyssa Zwolanek, seen here). I had a lot of fun making the eight different presents. I did use a few retired embellishments in this layout.
This is the left page. I absolutely love the Be Merry paper and the sentiment “Tidings of Comfort and Joy” from the Christmas Pines stamp set. This is one of the packs of paper included in the Designer Series Paper Sale. “Merry Wishes” is from the Oh What Fun stamp set. The little holly leaves and berries are from Holly Berry Happiness, which has a matching punch. In this case, you punch first, then stamp, because it’s a builder punch, so it’s easier to punch first. There are some tricks to help you stamp first, but when I’m just stamping one or two, I do it this way with builder punches. That tiny tag on the far left present is one of the Corrugated Elements.
This is the right page. The Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon makes a fun gift bow. The bow on the second present is from Holly Berry Happiness. The little knit Christmas tree on the third present is from the Smitten Mittens bundle. The last gift has a tag from the new Labels to Love stamp set, punched with The Everyday Label punch.
Most of the items I used in my layout can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store (linked supply list is at the end of this post). Make sure to use the October Host Code (below), and I’ll send you extra goodies!
To shop the DSP sale (select styles only), go here. The World Cardmaking Day sale, which ends Tuesday, is here (note that the Fast Fuse deal is no longer available but will come back for five more days in a few months — we blew through two years’ supply in five days!).
This is my page, based on this layout and page by Lyssa Zwolanek.
I changed up a few things, like the color and a few extras. I’ll use this for some of our pictures we took at the lake a few weeks ago. If I’d had a Detailed Mosquito thinlit, that would be more appropriate, but we did see quite a few dragonflies, too. And also, no one would buy a Detailed Mosquito thinlit. You can find my full supply list below.
Click here for details. Free tutorial offer ends August 20, and class kits can only be ordered through August 20.

I’ve been working on baby scrapbooks, both 12×12 and 8×8. This is a 2-page 8×8 layout for recording details about the baby’s birth along with significant newborn stats. I started with Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP and went from there. I wanted something bright and fun that could be for either a boy or a girl, and this paper is perfect for baby books.
I made the charts in My Digital Studio using Basic Gray and a free font I downloaded and installed. I printed out the charts on Whisper White cardstock, cut them out and rounded the corners, then added the little flourishes from the Tiny Tags stamp set. You can use any font installed on your computer in MDS (just make sure to scan them for viruses when you download them!). You can download a free 30-day trial of MDS here.
The vines are from the retired set Baroque Motifs, but the current sets Flowering Flourishes and Everything Eleanor would work here too. The ribbon in the big flower is also retired, but you could use any coordinating ribbon, like the Marina Mist Striped Organdy Ribbon from the Spring Catalog. The small yellow flowers in the corners are from Baroque Motifs (cut with the smallest Floral Frames framelits die). Other flowers were punched using the Boho Blossoms punch, one of my favorite ways to add a little extra to my pages.
My favorite parts of the layout are the “Miracles Happen” and “Oh Happy Day” sentiments. They’re both from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Sale-A-Bration stamp set (sadly retired, but I’m really hoping the PTB will put it in the new catalog that comes out at the end of May). I embossed it in white on Melon Mambo cardstock (when I made the same pages for a boy, I used Pacific Point instead of Melon Mambo) and cut it (and the Whisper White backing layer) using Apothecary Accents framelits dies.
