..:: mug shot ::..

Hello friends! I am up on the The Cut Shoppe blog today my first Holiday layout of the season!  However, it's not really a holiday layout it's about friendship and coffee -- featuring the red cups that we all know and love!

I used a couple of different files included in the Jave Script cut file. I also had my Silhouette cameo cut hole so I could stitch around the title -- and while I was at it -- I used the Silhouette software to write my journaling. I used the sketch pen feature of the Cameo to write right on the layout!  Here are some close ups:

I used some older Elle's Studio from my stash, the red card is an exclusive card from Clique Kits, and that lovely flair is from a set  called Donut Love 2 from {a flair for buttons}!

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

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you again soon! :-) XO o.g.

..:: do what makes your soul happy ::..

Hello! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with this layout using a few of my favorite things -- paper, Shimmerz Paint, and AFFB flair!  Here's a look:

I started with white card stock. I added some gesso to toughen it up a bit and prime it for all the water I was about to use! Then I used a mixture of the packaging technique, some splattering and using a paint brush to add my Shimmerz paints. I used Vibez Jeni B Blue, and two Coloringz sprays -- No Yolking and Pretty in Pink. 

I used items from Paige Evan's Whimsical collection for the bulk of my layout. I did a little fussy cutting for some of my embellishments, and added some of the gorgeous flowers as well. 

The sunglasses and smile flair both came from the Summer Vibes Flair set and were PERFECT for this story!

I also grabbed this "hello life" flair from the set of the same name.  The flair and sequins added the perfect pops of color for this page. 

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

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

..:: emerge ::..

Hi! I have a new layout using the November Clique Kit, Seneca Falls.  This kit is full of a bunch of Amy Tangerine's Shine On collection, and I love it!  Today I pulled a bunch of black and white papers and embellishments together and added some orange and aqua accents.  Here is my layout:

I used the Spread Your Wings cut file from The Cut Shoppe (available here) and cut it out of white card stock.  I added a bunch of layers behind my photos. Here are a few close ups:

Behind my photo I added tissue paper and some patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad in the Shine On collection.

I added lots of layers of flowers -- from the die cuts, the stickers and the printable in the kit. Here are a couple more close ups.

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

Thank you for stopping by! Tomorrow I will have another layout and video to share with you!
