So Thankful

This layout was based on a sketch over at Scrap N Supply. I used all Fiskars papers and chipboards to complete the layout. The title was done using my Cricut and special SCAL software!! It is such an awesome software to find just the right font!!

A Pointe In Time

This layout features the ultra-fun Ballet kit from the Coconut ScrapShop!! I've created several layouts from this one kit and I have enough left over to do a few more!! I love kits that have lots of items included!! The sketch is from ScrapIdeas blog....the blog is not in English, so I have no clue what it says, but their sketches rock!!

I did some experimenting with heat embossing on transparencies for the sparkly white swirls that you see on the page. It was fun and it added an extra touch!

Strawberry Girl LO

This is one of my favorite layouts from the Paper Element's Tart line. The sketch is based on Triple The Sketch!! The tears and aging were fun to do and I love the end result. Payton loved the strawberries from my garden this summer. She called herself the "strawberry girl," so I thought it would make a fitting title!!

Biker Chick LO

I love how this layout turned out. I wanted to make an cute frame for the photo, which I did with deco scissors. Then I cut out the squiggly with my Cricut - don't you just love it?? I used my new Sure Cuts A Lot program and a free dingbat font to create it. I LOVE the Sure Cuts A Lot program!!! The paper is the Tart line from The Paper Element.

Generations of Love LO

Hello! I'm in Alabama right now for a wedding, but I have some layouts that will be shared with you while I'm away. I'm so excited, because I will be able to meet up with my good cyber friend, Beth from A Stampin Good Time while I'm there!!

This layout features the Tart line from The Paper Element. It's always difficult to find a nice design for an 8x10 photo, so I kept this one simple, with lots of Prima flowers. I thought that the design of the paper matched quite well with the design of Payton's dress!!

Feeling Happy LO

Believe it or not, this layout also features the Oct. kit from the Coconut ScrapShop!! This Bo Bunny paper is reversable, with the other side being more "fall-like." I love the Maya Road calendar turn and the fun rub-ons that came with this kit as well.

Getting Stuffed LO

I recently received my October kit from the Coconut ScrapShop! The best part about the kit is all the fun embellishments that come with it! There are some Etsy creations, fun embossed letter stickers, velvet ribbon, tags, lots of buttons, and Maya Road goodies!! I don't have many fall photos yet, so I had to dig into the archives and get some Thanksgiving photos from last year.
