Looking To Get In On A Random Act Of Kindness For Mother's Day? Check This Out!

I thought I'd share this with you today. I made 25 of these cute 3x3 Mother's Day cards for my friend to use for an event she's doing. She sells 31 and is putting something together to go to some homes where there are moms who don't get visitors during Mother's Day to cheer them up.

There will be a bag, flowers/plant, and this card. If you would like to get involved (go here) for her website so you can reach out to her for all the details. I just thought it's a great way to do a random act of kindness (x 25 ...or more if more people want to do it). 

If you want to do something like this on your own...hit my website for items to make the cards and her website to get some cute bags...and you'll be on your way!

Cricut Flower Market Wreath ~ Spring Is Coming Soon!

How's your weather been lately? It was raining all day yesterday...pretty hard for San Diego too. It finally stopped but it's still really wet outside. So, I decided to share a cute wreath that the Art Dept. from CTMH made. I just needed something Spring like to look at! They used the Cricut Flower Market cartridge to make all these pretty flowers. It's pretty don't you think?!

Dreaming Big Beach Baby Pictures

I thought I'd share this today...since I think it came out cute. I made this #scrapbooklayout at an all day #crop I went to. The baby in the photos is my daughter when she was just a few months old. The paper I used is Dreaming Big (x7218B) and I used the complements that match (x7218c). The products can be found on my website if you want to make this layout or something similar.

Cut Above Forever & Always Used For Baby Photos Instead Of Wedding Photos

I wanted to share today with you photos of the layouts I made...I changed it from a wedding layout to a family layout instead. I wanted to show how cute this layout can be even if you don't have wedding photos to use on it (it's the Cut Above Forever & Always, Z3319 kit). I also made the Picture My Life pages that come with the kit but didn't take photos of those layouts. So, what do you think?

Wreath Kit To Make A Beautiful Wreath Without Alot Of Work!

I realized I didn't share the wreath I made with the wreath kit (January's special). You can buy the kit for $18.95 or earn it FREE (see my website for details on what counts to get it free)! 

The kit takes around 2 hours if you do it exactly how they made it (comes with photos & directions). The kit is also pre-cut so it makes it easy to put it together (you'll just need adhesive: glue dots, Z341 and liquid glass, Z679). 

It took me about 4 hours because I inked some of the flowers, with Cranberry ink, Z2816 using a sponge, Z697 and I also used the gold shimmer brush pen, Z3316 to add some bling to it. For the roses I used my Quilling Tool, Z1795, to roll them (so easy!). I plan to use Whisper Thick Twine, Z3095, to hang it up. The kit also comes with gold alphabet stickers so you can make it more personal (I put "Welcome" but you could put your name, or craft room, or hello...whatever you would like!). Go check it out, and if you have any questions just let me know!

December's Special and December's Stamp Of The Month ~ Gifts For The Holidays!

I have been really busy lately with my daycare (lots of small little ones) and just haven't been able to get to my blog. I'm sorry if you've stopped in and haven't seen anything new. I have still been posting a bit on my Facebook page and my Instagram page (you can find me on them under: LaurenLovesToScrap). Please go to those pages to see what I'm up to if I don't have a post here in a while.

I thought since I was able to get all the babies down for a nap I'd post this month's special and the SOTM. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! If you want to order them please go to my website to put the order in (thank you for supporting me and CTMH!)
