george at five: painting by the numbers...

Hello all! I'm sharing a layout today for the brand new Issue: Painting by the Numbers over on the Paper Issues blog. As soon as I saw the Waffle Flower stamp set the creative team was sent to use, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. Our oldest, George, turned FIVE in December and I love this photo I snapped of him wearing his birthday crown from his school party.

I started off with the Crate Paper Boys Rule collection in front of me and pulled out a blue-ish/aqua cardstock to coordinate. Using a Versamark ink pad, I stamped the open number 5 over and over to created a waterfall effect down the page. Using mainly the cutaway sheet in the 6x6 paper pad, I pieced together my embellishments to frame the photo and allow the stamped background a starring role. Speaking of stars, how awesome is that gold puffy star? It's actually May Arts ribbon!

The much of the Boys Rule collection is in stock at Paper Issues, along with so much other awesomeness! Pick up something to get your creativity flowing at 20% off using code JENBOOM


a fantastic card...

Happy Monday all! The sun is shining here, it is almost 50 degrees (finally!) and the thaw is coming. So to celebrate, I made this fun little card to link up with the new Issue over at Paper Issues. The fan, stars and phrase are from one of Lawn Fawn's new releases, Best Pun Ever.

Enamored with Enamel is wide open to interpretation. I chose to use the enamel dots and polka dot patterned papers to play along this time! I hope you'll make something to join in the fun. You could win a Paper Camellia March Kit for linking a project by March 15th - new or old! Here are the details:
  • Use enamel embellishments, like enamel dots, hearts, chevrons, words, etc.
  • Do you love stars? Let them take a starring role on your project.
  • Are polka dots your thing? Go ahead, go dotty with dots.
  • Get things pointed in the right direction by using arrows, geotags, globes, etc.
  • Is punctuation your thing? Add punctuation symbols to your project.
  • Share the love by using hearts.
  • Show us something you absolutely love, whether it be a person, flower, food, thing, place, movie, song, etc.
  • Use Paper Camellia's kits.


time with you...

Happy Valentine's weekend! As I was thinking about my next project, I realized that it would be posting this weekend and knew the layout would be full of hearts. I've been wanting to use both this Crate Paper Styleboard line and TFD Coffee Lover flair set for a while now but, seasonal projects kept taking precedence. I love that this Crate Paper line has a mix of bold patterns and softer feminine touches. As I scrolled though my photos, I came across this one of my mom and I from late last year and was immediately inspired.

My mom? Love.
Red cups? Love.
Coffee? Love.

Several years ago, my mom and I used to spend long days shopping, taking trips to New York City and doing all kinds of leisurely, girly things. As roles have shifted and time has been crunched, our outings have become shortened and not nearly as exciting but...no less meaningful.

How fun is this Coffee Lover set? I'm already plotting to use the rest because, coffee! Not a coffee lover yourself (whaaaat???)? No problem! There is an equally perfect Tea Lover set.

If you'd like to grab some flair for yourself, head over to Toni's shop and use code: JENBOUMIS for 10% off any order of $10 or more. Cheers!!!


documenting life with a bit of swag...

Happy Sunday! I have a new pocket layout to share today using my new favorite product line. As soon as the sneak peeks of the Simple Stories Life Documented collection were released a few months back, I fell hard. Hearts, wood grain, bright colors and coordinating pocket cards made it a necessity. As soon as the products arrived on my doorstep this past week, I was planning my first project (and several more). For this page, I used the Life Documented 2015 card pack, the Icon Sticker Pack the Bradz Brads (which, by the way, are adhesive! No more prongs!) and the fabulous February Swag Bag. That's all!

This pages focuses on the two big events of the last week of January - Amalia turning ONE and the now infamous blizzard that wasn't for our area, Juno. While this collection has nothing to do with winter or birthdays, it worked perfectly to document both events on one page. 

And, can we just pause for a moment to marvel that this baby is one? She amazes me every day, my sweet girl.

Here's an overview of the Life Documented line available now. It's stocked in the Paper Issues shop and you can have it all for 20% off with code JENBOOM. Enjoy!


New Issue Monday: Say It Ain't Snow Cold Outside!

But it is. Cooooooold! A brand new Issue is up today on the Paper Issues blog and you have so many options to create or link up a new or existing project to win a great prize! I'll share all of the details below but, first, here is my layout:

Last Wednesday, my husband and I had arranged for babysitting so that he and I could attend G's school conference and then go out for a coffee date. As luck would have it, both G and Amalia woke up sick that morning. I ended up going to the conference alone and we all went to the pediatrician together right after. We tried our best to still make that coffee date happen...using the Starbucks drive thru. Best laid plans!

I used the Paper Issues January Cut Files in my design (the interlocking hearts and the title), some of the Project Life Desktop collection (chipboard stickers and 6x6 pad) and Lawn Fawn Love You a Latte stamps and dies.

I can't wait to see what YOU do with our new Issue! Here are all the details:

for the love of snowflakes...

Good morning! We've had quite the run of both frigid cold temps and rounds of illness here lately so, have been cozied up at home trying to stay warm and get healthy. Luckily, a little creative time is a good way to accomplish both! Today I am sharing a layout for Toni From Designs featuring the Let It Snow set of flair. I love these photos of Amalia's first time playing in the snow and they paired so well with Fancy Pants Oh Deer collection, Elle's Studio Hello 2015 and the snowflake flair.

Seriously, how cute is this set??
