Pretty Little Studio | Blue Skies Everyday

I'm on the Pretty Little Studio blog today with a cloud-filled layout featuring the Let's Go collection mixed with a cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

I've got my head in the clouds.....

Gossamer Blue | November Sneaks

There's lots to love in the Gossamer Blue November kits.  Take my word for it, you'll have the perfect items to scrap all your Fall photos!

November kits are live for subscribers on October 31, and available for purchase on November 1. You will want every single add-on this month.  Not even kidding!

Go get'em, Tiger,

October Afternoon | Boo To You

I've got a thing for Halloween collections.  As in, I hoard them.

I've been hanging on to this Witch Hazel collection for over a year and finally decided it's OK to use it.  I paired it with Sideways Chevron and Creepy Crawlies cut files from The Cut Shoppe and came up with a non-scary Halloween page.

And then I misspelled leopard.

Can't win.

I took the photo at Miss Q's Halloween party at preschool last year.  You can't really see the costume all that much, but we know it's a Halloween pic!


Celebrate Today

The Indigo Hills collection from Pinkfresh Studio is gorgeous.  I'm a little late to the dance using this collection, I've been up to my ears in projects due and haven't had time to just make stuff for the fun of it.

I used two cut files from Clique Kits for this page, the photo frame and these lovely florals.

Of course I had to do a bit of stitching ;) both hand-stitching and with my machine.

I love this washi by Pinkfresh.  It's so pretty!

Cute pic of my DJ girly by Tracy Perrett!

As per usual, I focused on one main area of the page and kept the rest relatively simple.  I kind of love working this way, I don't feel pressure to embellish the -ish out of my pages.

I cannot believe how lucky I am:  I AM ON THE MAYA ROAD DESIGN TEAM!  My first-ever blog post for Maya Road can be found HERE.  The layout I made is kind of funny, silly and whimsical :D

Feeling giddy,

Gossamer Blue | XOXO

Hello!  I have another layout share using the October kits from Gossamer Blue.  For this page I used the Rosey Posey cut file from The Cut Shoppe, cutting it really big, then hand-stitching all around it. Yes, it took what felt like forever.  And YES, it was worth it ;)

The base of the layout is two papers from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection.  I adhered them together and then machine-stitched.  I kept the rest of the page rather simple so all the sewing stands out.

I embellished with the Gather ephemera pack, adding some black and white ribbon from my stash to tie in the photo and the XOXO, which also doubles as my title.

Keep dancing, ballerina girl ;)

Gossamer Blue | Follow Your Heart

I like pretty pages with a splash of sass.

This page was created with Maggie Holmes Gather and a hint of Pinkfresh Studios, items from the Gossamer Blue October kits (which are freakin fab, by the way).

I matted the photo with some 6x6 papers, a few that I used for die cutting on another project.  I think the mustache negatives add a little cheek to this page about my kiddo.

No crazy mixed media.  Just a pretty page with some machine stitching.  It took almost no time and sometimes that's the perfect amount of time ;)

That piano?  Totally made my day.

I've fallen back in love with my Dynamo label maker, the old school kind you have to turn and click. It makes me happy.

Turn and click ;)

Hip Kit Club | Guest Design Team

It's my last post for Hip Kit Club.... I've had a blast and really enjoyed getting to do some DT work for another kit club.  This has been a great experience and I am so grateful to Kimberly and Kim for choosing me to do a spot.

Special thanks to Tracy Perrett for these adorable photos!

Shine bright ;)

Gossamer Blue | Sweet Things

Hello!  I have a new process video for you featuring the October kits from Gossamer Blue!

I would love it if you would pop over to the Gossamer Blue blog and read my post there.

You sweet thing ;)

Gossamer Blue | Love You

Happy October!  It's my absolute favorite month :)

I'm sharing a Gossamer Blue layout created with products from Maggie Holmes, Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine.

I started by trimming down the light blue paper and stitching it to my background paper.  That little floral motif is just adorable!

I added a strip of 6x6 Maggie Holmes paper below the photo and then added in elements here in there from several October kits.

Love that Dear Lizzy washi :)

Be happy!
