Once In A Lifetime

Hello friends! Today on the A Flair For Buttons blog I am sharing a layout using the Just Cruising Flair.

 A few years back, I went on a scrapbooking and photography cruise to Hawaii and toured the islands of Kauai, Maui, Hawaii and Oahu.  It was a trip of a lifetime!


For my layout I used a digital cut file from Just Nick Digital Cut Files, some papers and stickers from the Carta Bella Travel Stories Collection, and also some wood veneers from Studio Calico that I have had in my stash for a while.  To complete the layout, I added some sequins to the "water".








Here is the fabulous Just Cruising Flair:

Flamingo And Pineapple Banner

Hello friends! Today I am up on the Paper House Productions blog with an off the page project.  Yes, I mostly create layouts, but sometimes I like to try other paper crafting projects so I decided on making a banner.

I love banners and I thought this would be perfect for a summer beach party.  Flamingos and pineapples are on trend and I thought they were a perfect addition to the banner to create a tropical feel.

I chose two Silhouette cut files (Flamingo - Silhouette Design #29133728) and (6 Banner Set -Silhouette Design #20957) and cut out 8 flamingo die cut shapes and 8 banner die cut shapes on my electronic die cutting machine.  I added one flamingo die cut to each banner.  Then I added two flamingo stickers and two pineapple stickers as shown. Next I added a butterfly puffy sticker to each banner shape and also a primrose puffy sticker to each flamingo die cut shape.

Once I had adhered all the stickers,  I added a pink polka dot strip of patterned paper to the top of each banner shape and then machine stitched around each banner shape to give more texture.  Finally I took a paper hole punch and punch two holes on the top corners of each banner shape and threaded it with a long piece of sheer ribbon.
I hope you are inspired to create a banner.  Have a lovely day!

Little Moments Layout - Just Nick/Clique Kits Team Up

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout over at Just Nick Digital Cut Files using the Floral Background cut file and the June Icons cut file.

My daughter in law Lori and my daughter's friend Kelsi, were bridesmaids at my daughter's wedding and I wanted to document them on that special day.


Last week Just Nick Digital Cut Files teamed up with Clique Kits for a blog hop so this layout was included in the hop.  I used the Floral Background cut file and the June Icons cut file on my layout as well as items from the June Kit at Clique Kits.


I cut out the Floral Background cut file on some black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it with some pink paper from the Clique Kit's June Kit.

There are some cute acrylic shapes in the kit so I cut the butterflies on some pink polka dot paper and machine stitched the acrylic butterflies onto the paper butterflies.


I wanted the "Little Moments" title to stand out, so I embellished around the title with a flair button and a dimensional leaf sticker to direct the eye to the title.


I loved this vellum tag and wanted to add the acrylic word "memories" to the tag so I machine stitched the acrylic word to the tag.  Stitching on vellum works well because adhesive would show through.

I hope you enjoyed your visit.  This layout was time consuming, but I am happy on how it turned out.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

June is all about weddings so I created a layout of my daughter in law Lori and my daughter's girlfriend who were bridesmaids in my daughter's wedding.  Aren't they gorgeous girls?  



I used the Just Nick Floral Background cut file and cut it out on black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it with some pink paper from the June kit.


  I also cut out the butterflies from the Just Nick June Icons cut file on some pink polka dot paper and machine stitched acrylic butterfly shapes on top of the paper butterfly shapes.  



I also cut out the butterfly shapes below from the June Icons cut file and placed them around the page. 


 I added flair button and leaf three dimensional foam shape around the title to direct the eye to the title.  


On the vellum tag, I added the acrylic word "memories" and adhered it to the tag with some machine stitching.  


I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Now it's time to hop over to the amazingly talent Marcia and see what she has created with the cut files from Just Nick and the Clique Kit's June La Dolce Vita Kit. I'm sure it will be amazing.
