..:: you are my ::..

Hi friends! I am up on The Cut Shoppe Blog today with this layout of my daughter. Here's my layout:

I am using the August Hip Kit Club kit full of Amy Tangerine and Maggie Holmes and this awesome free cut file from The Cut Shoppe (available here).

 My goal with this one was to make it super feminine, because she is being so NOT feminine, as well as silly. This cut file and these papers worked together nicely to accomplish that, I think.  Here are a few close ups:

I absolutely loved making this layout! It came together so quickly! I made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you again soon!

..:: you are magic ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with this layout I made using Shimmerz Paints, Hip Kit Club kit full of Maggie Holmes and Amy Tangerine, and flair from my favorite flair shop {a flair for buttons}!  Here's what I came up with:

I started by creating my background using mostly the packaging technique and some Shimmerz Paints.  I used Coloringz Oh Say Can U See, and two Creameez, Dandy-Lion and Great Fruit. They were perfect matches with both the Maggie Holmes and Amy Tan collections found in the Hip Kit this month. 

This camera from the Summer Vibes Flair set was perfect for this collection and photos.

This black flair is from the Primary Arrows 1 Flair set. 

And finally, I added this hashtag from the Hashtag Summer Flair Set. Here is a look at the journaling:

..:: so happy ::..

Hi Friends! Have you ever scrapped a photo the day you took it?  I did that with this photo of my grandson. And I'm going to be really honest and tell you that this photo will probably end up getting scrapped again, in color, with the 2-3 other photos that I took at the same time. :-) 

For this layout I used a Shimmerz Creameez called Lettuce Get Together (it's definitely one of my favorite Creameez colors) and a NEW Shimmerz When Skies R Grey. I used the packaging technique and some splattering to create the background you see behind the photo. I used When Skies R Grey to paint a boarder around the right side.  I also use some of the Lettuce Get Together to paint in some of the leaves on the left side. Here are a couple of close ups of the Shimmerz in action.

I used a piece of flair from {a flair for buttons} and added a few bits of sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps!

This is a traveler's notebook spread that I will add to a TN that I am working on that is bound by rings. The left side of my spread is a printable by The Cut Shoppe and it is called Endless Summer (shown above).

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

Just a reminder when you make your next purchase from Shimmerz Paints, put my name in the comments and you will get a little surprise paint freebie with your order!

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