..:: unforgettable you ::..

Hi! I am up on The Cut Shoppe Blog today with this layout of our daughter a few years ago. She was so little!!

I started with the Untamed Heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe. Then I grabbed my November Clique Kits and got started! I backed the file with papers from the 6x6 pad of Amy Tangerine's Shine On collection (from The Clique Kits TN kit). 

The papers are so colorful and pretty!  I didn't have to add too many things to complete the layout. I used the exclusive flair found in the main kit -- with a little tangled thread behind it! For my title I used a card that says, "Unforgettable" above the photo, and a tag below my photo houses the word "you".

I added some clusters of hearts around the edges -- where the cut file stops and the white card stock starts. All the hearts on this one!!

I also made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again really soon! XO o.g.

..:: summer sensation ::..

Hi Friends! I am up on The Cut Shoppe blog today with this layout featuring my grandson:

I used the Indian Summer cut file -- but it wasn't an "Indian Summer" story -- so I just covered up the word "Indian" with my photos! Here is a look at the cut file:

I backed the leaves with patterned papers that had a lot of green in them. These are all from  Amy Tangerine's Sunshine and Good Times collection. I also used a yellow ampersand paper from the same collection to back the word 'summer'.

For my background I added some Shimmerz Paints using the packaging technique. I took color inspiration from the photo and the patterned papers.

I added some tangled thread throughout the layout for pops of color. I used yellow and a peachy salmon color.  I also used a piece of flair from {A Flair for Buttons} -- The Summer Vibes Flair set.

Most of my embellishments came from Pinkfresh Studio's Be You collection. The colors matched perfectly!

This was a fun one to make. I'm so glad I got this story told!  Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon! XO o.g.

..:: love fall ::..

I friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with a new layout using two pieces of flair and a bunch of Shimmerz Paint.  Here is a look at my layout:

The Shimmerz Design Team were challenged to pick ONE COLOR and make it the focus color of the layout. I chose Vibez Sunset Strip. The gorgeous fall colors of the leaves in the photograph march the color perfectly!  I also added a few splatters of Coloringz Night Moves and Vibez Jeni B Bleu. Here are a few close ups:

See that pretty yellow!? Did you know that you can order custom flair from {a flair for buttons}?  You can! The "be present" flair was flair that I asked Shelley to make because it was my One Little Word a few years ago. I thought the idea of being present and noticing the beauty of fall made this the perfect flair for this project.

The flair above is from the Take a Picture 1 flair set. Once again, it's the perfect pop of color, and I think it's telling you to CHECK OUT THIS PHOTO! :-)  

I added some stamping to this layout as well. To see exactly how I put this together, check out my process video, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  See you soon! XO o.g.
