My Journey Layout

Today I have a layout page to share which I created for some pictures of my son.  Over the past couple of years, he began his health and fitness journey and has completely changed his lifestyle. I thought a layout would be the perfect way to memorialize the changes he has made.
I found the perfect papers in the DCWV Summer Stack, it's a few years old however has some great patterns.  I used my Cricut Explore and a bunch of different cartridges in Design Space for all of the die cuts and title.
The photo mats were accented with some chevron washi tape.  Since I was trying to stick with a masculine theme, I had to refrain from using too many embellishments.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Father's Day Card

Hello! I have another Father's Day card to share this week.  The papers for my card are from the My Minds Eye "Moments" paper pad.  These color combinations are so beautiful!
I used the Fiskars Notebook Border punch to add some interest to the base of my card.  The "Dad" letters were cut from the Momenta Alphabet Cutting Template and adhered inside a die cut frame.  A few scattered stars left over from another project were the finishing accent on my card.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic day!

Dad Card

Hello!  Today I have a simple Father's Day card to share which was created with the Momenta Alphabet Uppercase Serif dies for the letters.
I went with a masculine theme using several shades of blue combined with white.  The papers are from the My Minds Eye "Moments" paper pad. The white card stock is Neenah Solar White.
I used my favorite Glue Dots Adhesive Gluetape to adhere all of my layers.  The stars were die cut from the Momenta Happy Birthday Cut and Emboss set and attached with some Glue Dots.

Happy Birthday Card

Hello! Today I have a CAS card to share which was inspired by and created for the SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge.
Even though the mood board leaned toward masculine colors and images, I opted to use a few of the colors to create a bright and cheery card.  I used Fossilized Amber Oxide Ink to create the background of my card and lightly spritzed it with water.  Next I stamped the image and sentiment from the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set.
The floral image was stamped with the Fired Brick Oxide Ink and a basic black ink for the sentiment so it would pop on my card.  A few enamel dots were the finishing accent on my card.
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Giggle Laugh Layout

Hello!  Today I have a layout page to share which may look a bit familiar to this one.  I ended up creating a second page since I loved these papers so much.  They are from the DCWV Minty Lace Stack and I just love the color combination even though it's a departure from my normal bright and cheery color combinations.
The adorable "Giggle, Laugh" was perfect for tucking under the photo mats.  I accented both of my tags with a bit of Black Licorice Trendy Twine.  A couple of paper flowers, a die cut arrow and some washi tape were used as embellishments.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Grad Card

Happy Monday!  It seems as if one of my kids has been graduating every year and this year it's my son's turn to graduate from community college.  To celebrate his special day I created a fun card for him.
I gathered my supplies for my project and decided to create a tea length card to accommodate the oversized letters.
All of the dies used on my card are from Momenta.  I used the Alphabet Uppercase Serif dies for the large letters which were cut twice and layered.  I used the Glue Dots Stitch Glue Squares between the layers to easily adhere them together.  The Stitch Glue Squares were also used to adhere the letters to the card.  I used the Glue Dots Adhesive Gluetape to adhere the patterned paper to the base of my card.
The congrats die cut is from the Momenta Hello Word Fetti dies and the stars are from the Momenta Happy Birthday Cut and Emboss set.  I used some Twisted Lime Trendy Twine to create a tassel and a small brad to turn a basic square into a graduation cap.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a spectacular day!

All Things Grow With Love Card

Happy Friday!  Today I have a quick card to share which I created for the challenge going on over at Pink and Main.  I used the Seeds of Kindness stamp set and watercolored the image.  The center of the watering can was paper pieced with the pink polka dot paper to give my project an extra pop of color.  A bit of Wink of Stella was added to the flower centers for a sparkly affect.
I cut out the image with a circle die and layered it on a banner die cut.  A sentiment from the same Pink and Main stamp set was stamped on the base of my card.  The finishing accent were some coordinating enamel dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Sweet Birthday

Hello, today I have a sweet birthday card I created with some fun products that I've been hoarding in my craft room.  I picked out the papers from the Paper House Surf, Sun, Sand paper pad which coordinated perfectly with the adorable Paper House Sticker Flakes.  I used a few different dies for the base of my card and adhered the stickers on top.
The oversized sentiment is one of my favorites and is from the Pink & Main "Hello Sweet" stamp set.   The puffy clips are also from the same collection and were too cute not to show off in my pictures.
I stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set on the inside of my card.  Some Paper House washi tape and the same papers were used to decorate the inside of my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Splash Layout

Hello! Today I have a double page layout to share created with the DCWV Watercolor Ombre Stack. The papers are a beautiful mix of patterns, some with iridescent treatments.
I used my Cricut Explore for the sea life on my layout page.  The smaller seahorse were embossed with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.  The water border was punched with the Fiskars Boundary Waters Border punch and embossed with the Cuttlebug Chuck embossing folder.  
I tucked in a couple of tags behind the photo mat for journaling.  I added some coordinating flowers and bling as embellishments on my layout page.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Bride - Groom Layout

Today I'm sharing a double page layout from the wedding album that I'm working on.  Since the album is an 8x8 size, the pages take very little to put together.
I cut out the bride/groom title with the Momenta Alphabet Uppercase Serif dies and adhered them to the page with some pop dots for added dimension.
I added some flourish Momenta wedding stickers to each of the pages.  The flourishes were accented with some bling stickers.  I added a bit of May Arts cording to each of the photo mats which finished off my layout page.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
