Flower Garden Cut File – Marvelous Easter

Happy Monday!  I am so excited to share my first project for The Cut Shoppe Design Team!

Today I am using the Flower Garden cutfile and I altered it a little bit to fit my photo!

I used my March Clique Kit featuring Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection!  I just love the colors in this kit and all the fun embellishments!

I removed the Bloom&Grow saying on the cutfile by simply just snipping it off with my scissors!  I knew it did not go well with my photo but I wanted to use the flowers!

I used some White Smoke Heavy Cardstock from the Clique Kits shop as my base and added some color using some mist to match the colors in the collection!

To finish off my layout I embellished lightly around my photo that I added layers too and then added a few enamel dots from the kit!

This layout came together very quickly and I just love how the flowers add so much color to my layout!  You can find this cut file HERE in The Cut Shoppe!  You can check out my finished layout on The Cut Shoppe Blog HERE!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your day!

Hey Love – Scrapbook Layout

Hello! I can not believe it has been 10 months since my last post! Wow! After my last post I did find out we were expecting and I was very sick for a couple months! I spent those months in bed just about everyday! It was awful! We had our new baby Liam on October 9th 2017 and he is the most precious little nugget ever! I will be sharing more of his birth story later! I have been on a break from work and creating but I am now back and so excited to be sharing again! Today I want to share a layout I created for the Clique Kits blog using the January 2018 Rhapsody kits! These kits are just gorgeous and they sold out very quickly! Clique Kits does still have some of the Travelers Notebook kits available in the shop so if you are interested I would grab one ASAP!

I started out by cutting out a cut file from desingned by Inna Moreva and you can find it in her Etsy shop handipaper! 

I used the papers from the Travelers Notebook to back the cut file and I love how it turned out!  I pulled a piece of white 12×12 cardstock from my stash and added some watercolors and Shimmerz Vibez to the paper for some color!  I will have a list of products down below if you are interested in picking some up!

I pulled out embellishments from both kits and wanted colors that had blue tones and also a little black.  This kit has a lot of purple and pink but wanted to show you can use this kit for boy projects as well!

This super cute bird clip is from the Travelers notebook kit and I fussy kit him out and added him as an embellishment to my page!

Here is a look at my completed layout!

For more projects using the January 2018 Clique Kits please head on over to their blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I will be back next week with another post.  Have a great day.

From now until Friday you can grab this new stamp set for only $12.99 in the Precious Remembrance Shop!  This is the perfect date stamp with a ton of possibilities!  Today I want to share how I used it in a bit of a different way to create a pattern for my layout!

6d5a8164

I began by using the little grid stamp that you would normally stamp in the Month Day Year and using it to create a fun pattern on my white 8.5×11 cardstock!  I stamp it on the bottom and top corner and love how it came out!  I was unsure how it would look in the end but after stamping it a ton of times I just love it!

6d5a8157

I then added some strips of paper from my December Clique Kit on a diagonal and placed my photo down!  I added some embellishments from the kit and also the You Are Loved collection from Bella Blvd.  One of the stamps in this set says On This Day…I stamped that out on some white cardstock and stuck it down on a tag top with a little heart!  Love how it came out!

6d5a8153

You can see I also used some splatter stamps from Precious Remembrance shop!  I highly recommend these stamps if you like the look of splatter without the mess!!  You have total control of where you put your ink splats!  Check out the Happy Art and the Positive Thoughts stamp set for my favorite splatters!

6d5a8159

The last thing I added was the month and year the photo was taken!  I just love this font so much!!!  So much fun!!  Here is a look at my completed layout for the blog hop!

Little Moments

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a layout to share that I created using the October 2016 Clique Kit that features Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills!  This kit also has some beautiful papers from Simple Stories Posh collection and a fun mix of embellishments that include Clique Kits exclusives!

16343848_618607068324132_1815356488_n 16395665_618607074990798_483672671_n

I am also using a beautiful cutfile from 17Turtles designed by Juliana Michaels that you can pick up for free on her website!  Make sure to check out her other cutfiles too!

butterfly-frenzy-free-digital-cut-file-17turtles-juliana-michaels

Juliana has a great blog post on this cut file that you can check out HERE with great tutorial on using the cutfile to cut out your pattern paper pieces to back the file!  It has to much faster than tracing and cuting it out by hand like I did!

I cut my file out with some white cardstock from My Minds Eye that I picked up in the Clique Kits shop!  I love this cardstock and has become a must in my stash!

Embellishments I did keep pretty light so the background took the main focus but I did add some of the ephemera pieces from the October kit and some white thread from my stash!

The little moments acrylic piece is from Color Cast Designs and was included in the June 2016 Clique Kit that you can check out and pick up HERE!  I have been hoarding this piece forever and I think this was the perfect layout to finally use it on!  Here is a look at my final layout!  I just love how it tured out!

14139203_10153631538587186_37990346_o

My layout today is clean and simple with a lot of white and I just love it!  I cut out the Dream cut file a lot of times out of white cardstock and used a white background for my layout!  I placed my photo in the center with only a couple layers behind it!
