..:: better together ::..

Hi friends! I have a layout and process video to share with you using the June Clique Kits.

I started by ripping the patterned papers to create a vertical, The green paper is from Heidi Swapp and the pink paper is from 1 Canoe 2 Goldenrod collection. 

I used the vellum specialty paper from Maggie Homes It's All Good collection -- it has beautiful gold accents. I fussy cut the flowers and tucked them into the layers. I used even more of this paper (fussy cut) on the far left side of the layout. I also fussy cut some strawberries out of a patterned paper from the same collection and tucked those in for another pop of color.

The hearts and ephemera are mostly from 1 Canoe 2 Goldenrod collection. 

I really like how this one turned out. I made a video of my process if that's something that suits your fancy. Thanks for checking it out!

See you again soon! XO o.g.

..:: ribbon dancer ::..

Hi friends, I am a guest designer for Cheeky Studio and this is a layout that a made using items they sent me to try out! This particular layout was made using a lot of Cat Martin's Norwegian Wood collection. Here's my layout:

When I received my box of goodies in the mail, I did an unboxing video. I noticed that much of the items I received were autumn or fall collections. So, I challenged myself to make projects that looked more spring or summer, even though the products were fall! I think I did it!

I fussy cut some flowers from two different patterned papers. I also cut the white boarders off some of the die cuts so they would match. 

I added some tangled thread a few places for a pop or two of color and texture.

I found these matching alphas in my stash -- I cannot believe how well they worked with this layout!

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

Thanks a lot to Cheeky Studio for sending me products and providing my readers/viewers with a discount code!

See you soon! XO o.g.

..:: i love you this much ::..

Hi friends, I am up on The Cut Shoppe blog today with this layout in my traveler's notebook.  I am using the This Much cut file and the June Clique Kit-- here's a look at the layout!

And here is a closer look at the cut file!

This spread was all about how much I love the ocean -- the sounds, the smells, and how it allows me to exhale deeply and relax!  

I love the mix of papers from Pinkfresh Studio, Heidi Swapp, and One Canoe Two in this kit! They have the perfect mix of pinks and yellows!

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

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you again soon! XO o.g.

..:: summer ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with this summer layout! I am also participating in Audrey Yeager's Summer Scrappin 2019 YouTube fun -- and I'm her guest on day 6 of her 21 days of summer scrap videos.   Here is a look at my layout:


I used three pieces of flair in a visual triangle. The flair is from three different sets, and I think they worked quite well with the Maggie Holmes Sunny Days collection. Here are a few close ups.


The piece above is from the Hashtag Summer Flair set. The pink one below is from the Primary Arrows 1 Flairset.


The last piece is my favorite! It is from the Watercolor Patterns Flairset. I am in love with the watercolor look!


I had a little problem with my title -- but I found a way to fix it. Check out my process video to see what happened!



Here is a video of how this one came together.

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

..:: delightful day ::..

Hi Friends! I'm up on The Cut Shoppe blog today with a layout using the "delightful" cut file. I used it as part of my title. Here is a look:

And here is a closer look at the file:

I cut the file first with white card stock. Then I used the Silhouette software to take out all the inside pieces, and recut it with the rainbow paper. This made backing the file super quick!

I used a lot of the Crate Paper All Heart collection for this layout. I added some ephemera and puffy stickers around the page. Here are a few close ups:

I loved using this file as a big title!  It made putting the rest of the layout together so easy! Thanks for stopping by and checking it out!  See you again soon! Xo o.g.
