PLS | Oh So Silly

I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog again today!  This layout is on the simple side, but I think it's still super fun ;)

Stay silly!

Shimelle | Captured This

Cut files and hand stitching make me happy.

Even when I've been stitching on a layout for what feels like for-ev-er.

The floral file is from Paper Issues, one of the many free files you can find in their store.

I picked up the Shimelle Go Now Go line in some Gossamer Blue kits and also purchased a few items as well.

I started by cutting the florals on my Silhouette, figured out the placement and adhered them down. Next was hand-stitching with white floss around the perimeter and inside most of the cut outs.

I added several stickers and the large camera die cut, using the sentiment as my title.  Next I added a few strips of washi to the left of the photo for some balance on the layout.

I think this pink bunny is soooo cute!  Had to include him on this whimsical page.

Take note ;)

Gossamer Blue | April Weekend

This photo is special.  Three generations of dirt diggers and Grammy's greenhouse.

I'm sure I've scrapped it before, but I don't care.

I wanted it to be a special page so I used the foiled paper by Shimelle in the April Gossamer Blue kits.

I started by cutting a wide strip of the Shimelle paper and adding it on the white cardstock.  I considered sewing it to the page but opted against it.

Next I used several of the Maggie Holmes and Crate Paper Oasis die cuts in the Main Kit to mat the photo.

I used exclusive wood veneer for the title.  I placed the word April right on the photo then attached the Weekend banner pieces below.

A few more tiny embellishments and gold splatters added to the overall look of this page.


Emma's Paperie | Hey Hey Hey

Today is my day over on the Emma's Paperie blog!  Please head on over to check out my latest layout.

Gossamer Blue | This Baby

Ohhhhhh I love my fringe scissors.  Love.  They are perfect for using up scraps of paper and making them into their own little party.

This page started with some very thin layers of white acrylic paint and then I went fringe crazy.  I cut varying widths of papers, fringed, then machine-stitched them to my page.

This style will work for just about any layout for any subject.

I added my title with the Main Kit Thickers from Gossamer Blue, right over my fringes.

The photo was adhered with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension, then I tucked in Maggie Holmes die cuts from the April Main Kit.

A few more die cuts tucked here and there with a few small embellishments from the Life Pages and Planner kits.  I left all the threads hanging, just cutting them a bit shorter for more texture.

This baby!  I miss her, but love my 5 yr old soooooooo much.
