Small Town USA

Ready for some more ideas for scrapping your July events?
Great you've come to the right place!!

Let's begin with the very latest Challenge on Mosaic Moments Grid Paper: Stars & Stripes.

This two page layout features numerous techniques including glitter, glitter paper, pop dots, banners, tags, wooden stars, chevrons and a FREE downloadable alphabet to use on your Mosaic Moments Grids.  To see all the products in the store

Here's a few things I started with to make the layout.
see that FREE sheet of letters?

and here it is in the layout title

The Alphabet Tiles fit the 1" space exactly and are easy to punch out with a 1" square punch. I wanted to use the Cobalt Blue tiles to mount them on so I trimmed a little more off to show a narrow blue border. The "small" banner was cut using a Cricut and 1/8" ribbon used to hang each letter.

the July Literary Challenge was to be inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
My inspiration was the Tea Party and I chose to do a layout on the tea services that have been passed down in our family.


This title photo is my favorite of the page and this view includes many of the things I love on the page.

Would you like a fun way to include your toddler in enjoying their summer photos? Then you might want to jump on over to and find this treasure!

Details and instructions HERE 

My granddaughter loves looking at the pages I'm working on, but then they aren't exactly designed for a toddler to hold them and touch. Until now. I used the Mosaic Moments RTC paper to create a mini album of photos we took last summer of her at the zoo! Using textured animal prints from Anna Griffin I put together a fit in your hand book that she can touch and read all she wants to. I included some secret storage for tags with more photos and story that includes things she said and did along the way that day. I want to help her to remember her day and what she did...and now she can't wait to go again this year!!
How many times to you make pages for your kids albums that you hope that some they will enjoy and appreciate? Why not try this idea to get them more involved and remember the things they've done as little bitties...right from the start!


I'll be back later this week with news about our upcoming sale at the won't want to miss this once a year bash!!

There will be lots of new items being added in the days ahead!!
thanks for stopping by...
