Love This Layout

Today I have a layout to share of my friends and I at the Grand Canyon for my birthday.

For this layout, I used the Scraptastic Shake it off kit, add on and stamp set.

I added a few things like the polka dot vellum,glitter washi tape and the glitter word Thickers from the Notes and Things collection. 

I layered some papers and a piece of DCWV vellum and matted my photo. After I made my layers, I put my title down almost right away, which I don't normally do. My title usually comes in at the end. Then went around the page with some gold washi tape and cork stars. The stars were too plain for me so I stamped on them using the polka dot background from the Shake it Off stamp set.

I wanted to do a different kind of cluster in the upper corner instead of just layering papers and adding a sticker. So I didn't put the cluster on the edge like I normally do. And I didn't use any banners or layers of paper. Instead I used some of the cut apart cards and wood shapes from the kit and a little bit of gold washi. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT Thanksgiving holiday!

Fall Layout

Fall is here! Well kinda here in Az. I love the holiday season! There's so much to scrap about! Here's a layout of my cat laying on the chairs in the backyard with the beautiful fall colors.

A few different fall collections were used in this layout. I picked up a few pieces of the October Afternoon Apple Cider collection, some Bella Blvd Hello Autumn, Echo Park I Heart Fall and Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn.

The cut apart cards are one of my favorite things to layer with right now! I've been using them on tons of layouts lately. I chose to use a lot of fall leaves to layer around the page too. I also used the Scraptastic Free Fallin' stamp set to stamp down #warmhugs and the white triangle border.

Mister Huey's Opaque White spray works great on dark backgrounds and splatters very nicely. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT weekend!

Always So Happy

Always So Happy

Today I have a layout to share using the Scraptastic November Shake it Off kit and add on. I added some gold washi tape and those wonderful Thicker words from American Crafts.
I didn't exactly know which direction I was going to take with this layout. All I knew is that I wanted to use the awesome Feather background paper from Webster's Pages. 

This layout has less layers and more embellishments which isn't normal for me.. I usually embellish with more paper than stickers and such.

I love the wood veneer on top of the glitter tape. It's like a tone on tone with different textures. This layout took me about an hour just because of placement decisions. 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

Get Inspired Magazine

Get Inspired Magazine

At the beginning of October I had seen a post on Instagram about being published in an online magazine called Get Inspired Magazine from the blog Let's Get Sketchy. I decided to check it out, and found a post about doing a sketch. I decided to give it a try and applied with a layout I made. 

Here's the Sketch:

And here's the layout:

On my blog post a few days after posting it I got a comment... this is what it said:
Wow I just love this page, we would love to have it in the next issue of Inspired Magazine (for which I am the Assistant Editor) 
There was more to the comment but it included emails and instructions on what to do so I just deleted that part.

I was so excited but didn't want to post anything until it was published... well now it's published so here's the link to the magazine!

 There are some amazing layouts in the magazine so stop by and check it out!

Huge News!!

I have some HUGE NEWS to share today! I have been selected to be on the design team for A Walk Down Memory Lane! I am so thrilled and excited to be on their design team! I have already gotten started on my layouts to share on their blog. Stay tuned for previews and a whole bunch of fun!

Today I'm sharing a layout of my boyfriend and I on my dad's birthday this year. We were all in the kitchen getting ready to sing Happy Birthday and I was snapping a few pics.
I love the Be Loved collection from Fancy Pants. I chose to use the busy heart paper as my background and think it turned out very nicely as a background.

I used the large alpha that came in the collection pack and outlined it with a black pen to help it stand out. Then added a flair badge over the O. Only a few pieces were outline in the layout, I felt some of the other pieces didn't need it.

I cut out the journaling piece with the hearts around it from the brag pad and layered it underneath my photo with a few other layers. 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
