All Boy Layout

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout at Just Nick Digital Cut Files.  Nicole Nowosad has designed an awesome cut file and it's free!  I love circles and love circle elements.

I decided to create a boy layout and I cut the cut file out with my Silhouette Cameo on some houndstooth patterned paper and added some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons and some enamel dots.  I used some patterned paper from the Simple Stories So Rad Collection.  I love circles on a layout.

Here are some more closeups:

My Blog Has A New Look!

Hello friends! I have a second post for today. I wanted to share that I got my blog redesigned. Kristine Davidson took the digital kit below that I selected by Melissa Bennett and worked her magic.

It has been three years since I have had a blog redo and I thought it was time for a fresh new look.  I also changed the format from a three column blog to a two column blog with tabs for my resume', gallery and design team experience.  I love the new look and I wanted to thank Kristine for doing this for me.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Cat Sheldon Layout

Hello friends! Happy Saturday! Today I wanted to share a layout of my fur baby Sheldon for A Flair For Buttons.  He was rescued from a shelter and was in very poor health but my husband and I loved his personality so we took a chance and adopted him and nursed him back to health.  He is one funny cat.

For my layout I used the Got Cat Flair and the Cute Kitty Flair



These and many more flair buttons are available to purchase in the A Flair For Buttons store now.

I also used some cut files from Just Nick Digital Cut Files for the title and the photo mat that I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.  The papers are from the new Simple Stories So Rad Collection. 

Have a wonderful day!

My Creative Scrapbook October Reveal

Hello friends! I hope you are having a good week so far.

Today I wanted to share my layouts with the October Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook. Pam Rangel, the owner of My Creative Scrapbook, has asked me to stay on as a guest designer until January so I am very honored and excited to create with her kits. She does an amazing job choosing the kits each month. I love that there are so many different ones to choose from depending on your style. She has given me the October Main Kit to work with and I just love Fall and the Fall colors in this kit by Simple Stories. It contains both the new Pumpkin Spice and the We Are Family Collections. I was able to create five layouts with the kit.

Look at all the goodies you get in the October Main Kit

There is so much eye candy on the My Creative Scrapbook Design Team Gallery right now so be sure and check out the other kits and what the amazingly talented design team has created with them all and then order one for yourself here.  I want to thank Pam again for letting me create with her kits.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Stitch It Class Layout

Hello friends! I haven't blogged much this week but have a new layout to share. When time permits, I like to take classes and improve my craft.  My friend Nicole Nowosad has her very first class at Big Picture Classes called "Stitch It" so I thought I would take her class.

I was an avid cross stitcher before I began scrapbooking so I have hundreds of colors of embroidery floss in my stash and I love hand stitching and machine stitching on my projects.  I haven't tried the string art technique so I thought I would try it.  I really find hand stitching relaxing and it was fun to sew the title.  

I watercolored my letters of my title with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and some water and cut my leaf die cuts on my Silhouette Cameo.  The cut file for the leaves is one of the cut files in the new Sweater Weather set that is available to purchase and download at Just Nick Digital Cut Files.  Here are a few detailed photos of my project.

Be sure and check out her class. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
