XOXO || PLS Card

Hello, all!  Apparently I am big on the "XOXO"s this week.  HA!  I am popping in to today to share a super quick card that I created with the Oakley Avenue collection over at the Pretty Little Studio blog.
I love having random, all-occasion cards lying around in case I need one at the spur of the moment.  With all the cute die cuts included in the Oakley Avenue collection, it was easy to whip up a cute card to add to my stash.

I created this card by layering a doily over my favorite patterned paper, followed by a few die cut frames and topped with a label and sentiment.  Easy peasy!
Thanks so much for stopping in today! XOXO!

XOXO || PLS Layout

Good morning, everyone!  Happy Friday!  I am up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today to share a layout I created with today's feature product: number tags!  Every time I imagined using number tags on a project, I could only think of using them in a December Daily or a planner, so I made it my mission to use them on a scrapbook layout.  Granted, I still used them to express a date, but I think that's okay... ;-)
To create my layout I used a cut file from Just Nick Studio that had been lightly misted and decided to focus on the bright and happy color scheme of pink, orange and yellow.  A lot of the PLS collections have papers that feature these colors together, so it was easy for me to mix and match to create a happy layout highlighting my beautiful niece:
I love the cheeriness of the whole thing.  It reminds me of Summer...I'm not a fan of cold weather so I'm desperately holding on to anything that keeps me feeling warm. LOL.
Thanks for popping in today!

A Quick Halloween Layout

Good morning!  Happy Fri-YAY!  Unfortunately for me, I have to work all weekend, but I am hoping that everyone else enjoys some fun weekend time.

I wanted to pop in and share a recent Halloween layout that I made.  I found this cute sketch from Citrus Twist kits and immediately had to use it:

I pulled out my fave Bella Blvd Halloween products and quickly whipped up this layout.  

Obviously, I kept to the sketch pretty closely...but why mess with a good thing?!  :o)

Thanks for stopping by!

Oakley Avenue by Pretty Little Studio

Good morning, everyone!  I am popping in to share a layout that I made with the newly released Oakley Avenue collection for Pretty Little Studio!  We just had our product swap with Just Nick Studio last week, but I had a bunch of Just Nick Cut Files that I still wanted to play with, including the fun leaves cut files that I used on today's layout.

I decided to scrap a photo of my dog, Moose, wearing his new Fall collar.  Since the Oakley Avenue collection is Fall-themed, I thought it would be perfect to combine with the leaves cut files:
I also sprinkled in some sequins, some fussy cut leaves from the Leaf Love paper and some Fall Words stickers.  Kind of gives the effect of falling leaves, right?!  ;o)
Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Happy Wednesday!

Playing with my September Kip Kit...

Hey, everyone!  I wanted to pop in and share a layout that I recently made with the September kit from Hip Kit Club.  The kit is full of the Gather collection from Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper and bits from the Simple Stories Posh collection.  I definitely don't think the kit is in keeping with my normal style, but it's been fun playing outside my comfort zone a little bit. :)  Here's what I whipped up:

Pretty simple, but sweet.  And...Eric recently bought a We R Memory Keepers typewriter for me as a little (BIG) surprise and I'm having so much fun playing around with it!!

Thanks for popping in!

Pretty Little Studio - Just Nick Studio Product Swap

Good morning, everyone!  This week, Pretty Little Studio is teaming up with Just Nick Studio for a fun product swap!  My layout was up on the PLS blog yesterday and I had SO MUCH FUN making it!  

Just Nick has so many great cut files to choose from that it was a really hard decision to decide which ones to play with.  So...I picked out a few and will be sharing layouts with PLS products and the fun cut files all month long.  :)  But for my first project, I decided to go with the Doodle Daisy background.  I cut it out, backed it with different shades of Sundress Vellum from the Summer Vibes collection, and then cut it in half to frame my photo:
I really love how it turned out.  I popped up the file with pop dots to add a bit more dimension.  This cut file is SO FUN and I think it pairs so nicely with the bright, vibrant colors from the Summer Vibes collection...a winning combination in my book!!
Thanks for popping in!  Check out the PLS blog and the Just Nick Studio blog for more inspiration from both teams!
