Enjoy Layout

Hello!  I am excited to share that I'm joining the Scrapping Cottage as their guest designer for the next 2 months. For those that are not familiar with Cottage Cutz, they have a lot of amazing products and I'm a huge fan of their dies.  You can check out the wonderful selection of products in their shop.  For my project, I was inspired to create a single, 12x12 layout page.
I used the patterned paper as the inspiration for the colors of my die cuts.  The Pumpkin Pie & Latte dies were pieced together and placed on a Stitched Circle.  I added a fun sentiment from the Fall Phrases die set.  Grouping the die cuts together with a sentiment created a fun and interesting element on this layout page.
A couple of decorative tags were tucked in behind the photo mat.  The tags were cut from the Mail Tag set and are perfect for journaling.  A couple of leaves were added to each of the tags as a decorative element.
A bit of Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine was tied to each of the tags as a cheery accent for each of the tags.
Here are the Cottage Cutz dies used on my project:

Halloween Treat Box

Hello!  Today I have a fun Halloween project to share.  I created this treat box with the Art-C Gable Box die & stamp set.  The papers are from the Momenta "All Through the Year" paper pad.  I fussy cut the Halloween scene from the same paper pad and adhered it to the treat box.  The whimsical pumpkin is way too cute.
I used the some Glue Dots Permanent Adhesive Tape to hold the treat box together.  A Glue Dot was used to attach the Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine bow.

Hello!  For this card, I colored my background with several Distress Oxide Ink colors blending them to create an additional layer of color.  Next, I embossed the colored background with the Momenta Floral Cut & Emboss set.
I layered the die cut flower over the embossed version of the same flower for some depth and dimension.  I finished off my card with a sentiment from the same set.

Love Layout

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a super bright and cheery layout created with the DCWV Glam Rhinestone Stack.  I needed bold colors to compliment my picture so these papers worked perfectly.  The yellow patterned paper and yellow tag are from the Recollections Spelendiferous paper pad.
I did a lot of fussy cutting of the flowers on my layout and popped several of the flowers on foam pop dots for added dimension.  I also die cut several smaller flowers to incorporate into my floral frame.  I used lots of bling amongst the flowers.  Some Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine was added to the photo mat.  The "love" and "smile" sentiments are from the same paper pads.
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a set of tags which were created with the Art-C Ephemera Collage kits. I used 3 different kits for each of the tags: Friendship, Word Play and About Us.  I love all of the fun tags, punch outs and embellishments in the kits.
I cut out the kraft tags using the Art-C Love, Hello, Thanks Die & Stamp Combo.  I punched out the circle reinforcements for 2 of the tags using the We R Memory Keepers Hole Reinforcer Punch.  The 3rd reinforcement is from the coordinating kit.
I used some Glue Dots Pop Up Adhesives to give the tags some dimension.  Some pearl accents and a bit of jute finished off my tags.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Favorite Moments Layout

Hello!  I finally had the opportunity to work on some layout pages which is my true passion.  I can get lost for hours playing with all of the elements on a layout page.  I find it very relaxing creating the embellishments for my pages.  For this 12x12 page, I die cut each of the flowers, inked them and layered them.  I was careful not to make them too bulky for my album.
The background papers are from the DCWV Pocket Blossom stack and the striped papers are from the DCWV Basics and Brights Stack.  The "favorite moments" sentiments is from We R Memory Keepers and the "beautiful" sentiment is from the Momenta Best Friends Stamp set.  A few die cut butterflies and an arrow were the finishing accents on my layout page.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a spectacular day!
