12x12 | Lovely Girl

I have had these Prima stamps for ages, and have barely used them.  I've got several others and I'm trying to incorporate them into my regular crafting.  It drives me nuts to have a product in my stash that I'm not utilizing.

I used Prima Tropical watercolors, the colors are sooo pretty.  I added in a bit of Heidi Shine gold as well.

I used primarily One Canoe Two for this layout, with a few die cuts and corks from my stash.

There's those Thickers I've had forever.  So happy to use them up!

And there's my muse, my Miss Q.

See the beauty.

12x12 | Favorite Photo

Hey there crafty friends, I've got a new page using the June kits from Felicity Jane!

I adore white and black polka dots.  They make me incredibly happy, add in some florals and I'm done, game over, kill me now.

I was drawn to the June kits because of the gorgeous floral paper, and the colors are the perfect mix.

The scale of the die cuts and chipboard pieces are spot on.

Teeny tiny flair.  Swoon.

This is my favorite of the four pages I made with the kits before totally killing them (except a couple die cuts and 2 chipboard pieces).



PLS | This Makes Me So Happy

I'm on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page made with 3x4 and 4x6 cards.  Click HERE to read how it came together!

Maya Road | Simple Stories Swap

I'm sharing a fun product swap page on the Maya Road blog today, please click HERE to read the how-to and see all the detail shots of this layout.

This title was a quote from my friend Rebekah when she saw the inside of this vintage camper was decorated with scrapbook papers, ha!

Get crafty,

Emma's Paperie | Don't Grow Up

It's sketch challenge time at Emma's Paperie!

I used the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day line to make this happy and bright page.

I'll stay a kid at heart forever ;)

PLS | So Sweet

You can find me over at the Pretty Little Studio blog today, I've got a sweet page made with the Here + There collection!

Gossamer Blue | Getaway

This layout is about the time my girly and I had the most delicious breakfast in bed.  Apologies in advance for the crazy puffy eyes in the photo ;)  This is how the mama looks when she has to share a bed with her kiddo and husband.  HA!

I used the Gossamer Blue June Main Kit to create this page, starting with the awesome ticket paper that I cut into strips and sewed to my background paper.

I used a few other Main Kit papers to mat the photo, then added the large die cut right on my photo for the title.

I left the right 1/3 of the layout as white space, keeping the chipboard and die cut embellishments above and below the photo area.  Doing this keeps all the embellishments going in the same direction so to speak, from top to bottom of the page.

I love the rubber embellishments in the June kits, that little heart is just adorable.

We went to our first-ever PBR event on this trip, and it was AWESOME.  Look for some cute cowboy photos to be documented soon!

Good stuff,
