Banner Card || Pretty Little Studio

Hello, everyone!  Happy, happy Friday!  Today's product feature on the Pretty Little Studio blog is Cut-Aparts.  As you are probably aware, there is a wide variety of cut apart products in the PLS store.  I love them all and I use a cut-apart product on almost every PLS project I make.  They are just so versatile and fun.  For this project, I decided to use the You & Me Word Flags.  Since they are already banner shaped, I decided to make a banner card (really thinking outside the box on this one :-P):

I love the way it turned out...plus it's a perfect way to use up some of those scraps that we all have laying around! I added a sprinkle of buttons and sequins to tie it all together.
Thanks for stopping in.  I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Another Felicity Jane layout

Good morning, everyone!  I found a bit more time to play with the September kit from Felicity Jane!  I'm seriously soooo in love with this kit.  I really feel like it is my personality in a box :)  Lol.  I know...I sound like a weirdo.

Anywho, for the most recent layout I created, I decided to use a sketch from Citrus Twist.  I just recently pinned a whole bunch of their super cute sketches to my Pinterest board.  Here is the sketch: 

And here is my take on it:

Seriously, though...the colors in this kit?!?! Swoon.

Felicity Jane Layout

Hello, everyone!  I wanted to pop in and share a layout that I recently made with the September kit from Felicity Jane.  I've been eyeing their kits for a while now.  I love that they are full of completely exclusive products!  When I saw this month's kit, I decided to give them a try.  All the stars in the kit were just screaming my name...and when the box arrived...swoon!  It was packaged sooooo pretty.  Obviously, I'm a sucker for all things paper and packaging :o)

Anywho, I whipped up a quick layout:

Aren't all the patterns so fun and pretty?  I can't wait to get back in my scrap room and play some more!!

Thanks for stopping in!

LOVE Summer || PLS

Good morning, everyone!  It's back to the grind again as another work week it's gracing us with it's presence..why do the weekends go by so fast?!?!

On the plus side, I am up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning sharing my second layout created with the Summer Vibes collection.  It is the perfect collection for catching up on the scrapping of all those Summer photos or tropical vacation pictures.  For today's layout, I decided to scrap a photo of my adorable nieces at the lake for their Summer Vacation.
I decided to hand-cut the large "LOVE" title from different patterned papers, throw in some super messy stitching, and combined them with the Die Cut Gold Metallic Letters from the Here Comes the Sun collection.
I sprinkled around some of the Summer Night die cuts and used scraps from the patterned papers to create borders along the sides of my page.
I think the page turned out bright and vibrant, which reflects the feel of the adorable photo that my sister-in-law took of her girls.

And now I'm off to pout because it's Monday and because I have to wait almost a whole year until my next Summer vacation!  :-P

A Layout for FUN

Hey, everyone!!  Happy weekend!

I wanted to pop in and quickly share a layout that I made just for fun...I've been doing that a lot recently and I've really been enjoying myself. 

I made this layout with the July kit from Hip Kit Club.  The kit features tons of exclusive papers and embellishments and I LOVE IT.  The kit is just my style...the layout I made is a little different from my normal style, but I actually think I really like it...

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!

Scraplift Saturday || 9.10.16

Good morning, everyone!  It's time for another *exciting* edition of Scraplift Saturdays!  LOL!

I chose to scraplift this layout from earlier in the year:

I loved the giant title and the wavy paper strips.  I changed it up a bit by placing the title on a diagonal and I really like the effect:

What do you think?  Pretty simple, right?  I'm totally in love with the Healthy Hello collection for Jillibean Soup and this Open Alpha cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  I'm sure you are tired of seeing those alphas on all my projects...ha!

Thanks so much for popping in!

This is the Life || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning, everyone!!  I am  up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today with a product feature!  Today's product feature is Journaling cards...and since I just got the Summer Vibes collection in my hands, I had to use it IMMEDIATELY!  I love the bright colors and fun patterns of the collection.  

For this layout I used the Let's Go journaling cards.  I really liked the patterns on them and I wanted to make sure they stood out on my layout so I kept my overall design very simple:
I created a few little cluster of embellishments around the layout to spice up the design a little bit:
And I added some random borders along the sides of my layout...it's kind of become "my thing" recently.

Thanks for popping in today!!

Hip Kit Club Sketch Challenge

Hi, everyone!  For my birthday last month my AWESOME husband surprised me with a subscription to Hip Kit Club and also bought me a whole bunch of past kits to get me "started".  He's totally awesome, right?!?!

After my subscription started, I was added to the Hip Kit Club member Facebook page and found out that they host a weekly challenge on there.  This past week was a sketch challenge...and I love my sketches, so I joined in!  Here was the sketch:

And here is the layout I created.  This was made with the Fancy Free collection from Pink Paislee.  I've loved that collection since the day it came out, but it took me forever to be able to get my hands on it...so glad that I finally did. :o)

Well, that's it for me...I'll keep this post short and sweet ;o)  Thanks for stopping in!!

Jot Magazine || Issue 15

Good morning, everyone!  Here in the U.S. we have a long holiday weekend and I'm so excited!  I definitely needed a tiny break from reality :o)

I did want to share a couple layouts that I had in the most recent issue of Jot Magazine. The first was for a call about Dad layouts.  It was Father's Day in Australia this past weekend.  I jumped on the opportunity to scrap this photo of my Dad and I (actually taken on Mother's Day last year...lol):

I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe to create the big title and some of the Amy Tangerine Better Together line:

The second layout is one you've already seen before (and recently...I thought it had been passed up, so I shared!).  The call was about diagonals:

Thanks for stopping in.  Enjoy the week (and the extra time off, if you've got it)!!

Handsome || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning, everyone!  I am popping to share a layout that I had up on the Pretty Little Studio blog a few days ago.  Lately I have been on a "simple scrapper" kick - meaning I want to make, simple (but pretty) layouts as quickly as possible.  My life has gotten pretty busy recently and I love scrapping, so I have no plans on giving it up.  However, I just don't have the time to make super intricate fancy pages right now.

One of the ways I've managed to do this is to rekindle a love affair with my diecutting machine - lol!  My Silhouette has come in super handy with helping me to create quick pages that I still think look nice.

I turned to my Silhouette to create the background for today's layout.  I decided to repeat my title multiple times to create a background and backed the cut outs with pretty papers from a variety of PLS collections:
The end result:
I'm such a fan of how it turned out and it only took me about 30 minutes to make...can't beat that!

September Sketch || Creative Scrappers

Hello everyone!  Creative Scrappers revealed their September sketch this morning - I had soooo much fun with this one.  Check it out:

This month's sponsor is Cuts2Luv.  Their flair badges are pretty much amazing. :)

I also broke out some Simple Stories Sunshine & Happiness collection and one of my favorite cut files from The Cut Shoppe.  I also used one of the new Creative Scrappers cut files...so much fun!

I hope you can play along with us this month!
