..:: all the feels ::..

Hi Friends!  Happy Valentine's Day! We are celebrating over at The Cut Shoppe! Here is my contribution:

This is layout in my "Right Now" Traveler's Notebook. My plan is to fill it with things that bring me joy!  This photo certainly does that!  The cut file I used is one of several cut files found on the  Working Title cut file available here.

For this layout I am using items from the May 2018 Clique Kit which was full of PinkFresh Studio Be You and Let Your Heart Decide collections.  The background paper is a 12x12 that I cut to size.  I backed the heart of this cut file, with a coordinating floral paper. 

I love all of the rose gold elements in this collection!  I added some matching thread behind the cut file and a few other places for pops of that color. The eyelets on this banner, and the twin also have that same metallic color.

See that face??  Serious love for that face.  I added the date and some tabs behind the photo -- more tangled thread for the win.

I also made a video of my process, if that's something that suits your fancy!

The Cut Shoppe is having a bit of a celebratory sale!  Use the code BeMine50 to save 50% through the weekend. :-)

Hi friends!  I am up on The Cut Shoppe blog today with this layout using a new cut file called Pretty as a Peacock.

Here's a look a the cut file:

I cut the file using white card stock.  Then, in the Silhouette software I did a "release compound path" witch allowed me to move the pieces around or delete portions of the file.  I did a second cut but this time I only cut the inside of the feathers, and I used two different pattern papers. I glued the inside feathers right down to the background paper, but I used foam to pop up the white card stock.

The inside of the feathers are my favorite part.....except I also really like the body of the peacock!!!

Who know I would use that peacock paper?  It was perfect for his body don't you think??

I added a few phrase stickers from Tim Holtz that talk about being beautiful, different, and creative.  Unique. 😀

I bit of tangled thread placed for extra pops of color and called it done!  I made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by! XO o.g.

..:: love this ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with a new layout using three pieces of flair from the shop. Have you ever had one of those photos that you are just waiting for the right product to arrive so you can scrap it??  This is one of those photos for me.  Recently, I got some new pieces of flair and Heidi Swapp's Color Fresh collection arrived at my door.  Bam!  Match made in heaven. Here is my layout:

I love the bright colors with the bold stripe! EEK!  I pulled out most of the hearts from the ephemera pack and the stickers and scattered them throughout the page. I also added a few gold hearts that are from the same sheet as the gold words in the collection. The photo corners became arrows when I added them to this background paper. So, see that flair right there beside my daughter's face?  PERFECT! It is from the Watercolor Hearts and Flowers flair set.

The 'soar' flair is from the Lovely Words 10 flair set. I love the pops of green it provides to the top of the page!

The butterfly is perfection. You can find that piece in the Lovely Words 9 flair set.

This one came together pretty quickly and I love how it turned out. I made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon! XO o.g.
