Fun Outdoors Layout

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Today I have a fun outdoors layout to share!

I started off by using a white piece of cardstock as my background. Then cut a piece of that pretty cloud paper and glued it down. The cloud paper was a bit too bold so I cut a piece of the awesome hashtag paper to put over top. 

My title uses three completely different alphas. One is an ephemera piece, one is cardstock stickers and the other is chipboard letters. 

My favorite part of this layout is the strips of paper going diagonally along the top of the layout. I just cut along the top and bottom of the words and glued them in place with how they ran on the paper.

I felt like I needed to add some green to the layout, so I used a scalloped border punch and cut two borders for the top and  bottom of the cloud paper. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!

Puppy Love Layout

I just love this layout I made for my aunt of her dogs. I dog sat for her last year when she went to Maine. 

The colors in the Family Forever collection by Bella Blvd went great with the photo. 

I started by cutting the borders out of the Borders paper. Then spaced them out at the bottom of the layout. There's a small gap in between each one. Then cut the houses out and glued flat the tall skinny houses, and pop dotted the shorter houses. 

The large blue heart did say Family Love. So I just cut a little strip of matching blue paper and glued it over Family so I could put Puppy Love.

The white cardstock really makes everything pop. The colors are bright and cheery and I love that about these papers!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Bella Blvd Layout

 Hello everyone! Today I have a fun zoo layout to share. I love that I could use all the great Bella Blvd products that have nothing to do with a zoo.

I used a few collections by Bella Blvd including Summer Squeeze, Scattered Spinkles and Lucky Starz. I picked out some of my favorite patterned papers and cut them into three inch squares then glued them around the edges of the paper leaving a big 6x6 square in the center of the page. Then used a zigzag stitch to stitch them all together.

My photo was cut at 6x6 and has a small white border. I pop dotted the picture to help it stand out a little more against all the patterns. 

Then in various squares I layered some paper pieces and used some pop dots there as well.

My title is Monkey Love since my step daughter Maggie is sitting right next to a monkey. It was done using a chipboard Bella Blvd alphabet and a cardstock sticker alpha. Then cut a journaling spot out of one of the 3x4 cards and placed it next to my title.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Always & Forever Layout

Hi everyone! Today is my first day back posting to my blog since my dad passed away. I find it a little comforting to scrapbook pictures of him. It does make me sad, but it helps. 

Last week on Facebook, Pebbles Inc. was doing a giveaway and I won the whole We Go Together collection. So I made a layout for my mom for Valentine's Day.

I did a small split background. Then did another split in the middle with strips of paper and American Crafts glitter tape. 

The collection came with these rosette hearts that are so cute! I used a punch and layered some hearts on top with an enamel candy heart. One of the hearts is a self inking stamp that was part of the collection. I stamped it down a few times and cut them out. I love the faded look it gives when stamped.

The I love You is an epoxy word that I put down right on the picture then used the Thickers for the rest of the title. I layered up hearts and stapled them together with one epoxy heart on top and placed them in three different places on the layout. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
