PLS | Love You Everyday

I've got a new mixed media post for Pretty Little Studio HERE.  Please head over to the PLS blog to read how my layout using the Blooming Hearts collection came together.

Emma's Paperie | Love Your Smile

It's all about florals over at Emma's Paperie!  I'm using the Oh My Heart line from Pink Paislee, there are so many yummy florals in this line, what better way to document my girly's Fairies and Gnomes birthday party?

Keep smiling!

PLS | Crafty Girl

I can't get enough of the Ain't Life Grand collection at Pretty Little Studio.  Read all about my newest layout HERE.

I used a feather cut file from Just Nick Studio to help me create this page.

PLS | Hello

I had to document the purple hair!

Check out my newest creation for Pretty Little Studio HERE.  I used the Here + There collection and I'm just so pleased with how this page turned out.

Maya Road | Lovely

It's my day on the Maya Road blog!  This month we are focused on all the amazing resin embellishments available in the Maya Road Store.

I hope you head over and see all the detail photos of this page, those resin pieces really are stunning.

Stay lovely,

Gossamer Blue | Excited

We got to babysit this sweet girl a few weeks back.  It made Q's day.

I wanted a soft page to document the photo, so I grabbed the amazing clouds paper in the Gossamer Blue Main Kit for May.

I mixed items from the Main Kit with the Planner Kit to make this layout.  I liked the smaller size die cuts, perfectly delicate and sweet for a baby page.

Since I'm not a planner girl, I tend to use the flag sticky notes as banners on my layouts and in my TN.  I added these with adhesive at the top and then machine-stitched through them.

This 3x4 card just made me happy, and because babies are magical.

I cut the bottom part of the decorative paper clip off and stuck it behind my photo, framing it with a die cut and then adding in other pieces for a bit of whimsy.

I continued with the bits and pieces below the photo and banner.

A soft page for two sweet girls!


Gossamer Blue | Be Your Own Superhero

I have a serious love for the Open Letter Alpha file from The Cut Shoppe.

I knew I wanted some type of superhero title, so after some Pinterest searching I decided on Be Your Own Superhero, then welded the letters together in my Silhouette studio to create the title.

I kind of love this month's color palette from Gossamer Blue!  It's just so much fun :D

I added two strips of paper to the left side of the layout and machine stitched them for texture and additional detail.

I used two 3x4 cards from the Life Pages kit behind the photo, both have sentiments that I liked for this photo and page.

Chipboard pieces above the photo and below the title, mixed with die cuts and stickers.

Go and save the day!

PLS | Dreams Are For Chasing

I'm up on the PLS Blog today with this whimsical page using the Ain't Life Grand collection!

Gossamer Blue | Fun Times

I was totally inspired by the orange and green jelly beans in this photo, and the GB May Main Kit was the perfect fit.

I started by stamping "today" from the Main Kit stamp set in a dark gray, keeping it to the area I intended for my photo.

I layered the 3.5x2.5 photo on some tissue paper and the yellow striped paper in the kit, then adhered it to my page.  Next I turned some of the washi strips into dimensional embellishments by adhering them to fun foam.

I used lots of die cuts to create an embellishment cluster to the right of the photo, adding in a few chipboard pieces as well.

I added another dimensional washi and layered a few embellishments on the left side of the page for balance.

I put the green cloud die cut on some fun foam as well, then added one last chipboard piece.  A few ink splatters in yellow, coral and gray completed the page.

Have fun!
