Thankful for You || Color Cast Designs

Hi, everyone!  I'm excited to pop in and share a layout that I made with a few of the September releases from Color Cast Designs.  All of the releases were very Autumnal in nature and I knew they would pair perfectly with the Bella Blvd/Illustrated Faith new Gratitude Documented line.  Here's a look:

Isn't that collection so pretty?  And I think it's complimented perfectly by the wood veneer confetti leaves and the confetti asterisks.

Thanks for popping in.  Make sure you stop by the Color Cast Designs website to order your Autumn embellishments before the sale out!

My First 2-Page Layout!



Good morning everyone!  Happy Friday!  I'm excited to share my most recent Pretty Little Studio layout with you.  I've been scrapbooking for 9 years and this is the first time I have ever created a double page layout!!  The whole idea of a 2-pager always kind of terrified me, but this one came together for me really easily.

As you know, my little girl, Piper, was born in August. I bought those fun monthly stickers so I can take pictures of her every month.  I decided that I would also make a monthly spread of some of my favorite photos from the month and re-use the monthly stickers on the layouts.  For the first month, I decided to use the super pretty Beautiful Day collection.  The colors and patterns are so pretty and really compliment the monthly sticker well.



Here is the whole layout:
And a closer look at each page:

You are Beautiful || Pretty Little Studio

Hello everyone!  I'm excited to pop in and share another layout that I made with the Tales & Dreams collection for Pretty Little Studio.  There are so many great colors in this collection that it's easy to mix and match to create color combos to fit your needs.

For this layout, I chose a pretty flower cut file from Just Nick Studio and backed it with patterned papers from the collection that coordinate well with a photo of my beautiful niece.
Since the backed cut file provided a lot of color and interest, I kept the rest of the layout fairly simple and just added in a few die cut flowers and leaves around the page to complete the look.
Have you played with this pretty new collection yet?

You Are My Sunshine || Color Cast Designs

Hello, all!  Happy Friday!  Last week, I got the newborn photos of Piper back and instantly had to make a layout with them!  Luckily, I had ordered some acrylic pieces from the August release at Color Cast Designs in preparation of her arrival.  Since she was already my sunshine before she even graced us with her presence, I decided to use this piece for my title:

I also broke out the Elle's Studio Live, Laugh, Love collection that I *may* have been hoarding.  The green hearts in the August confetti heart mix coordinate perfectly with the pretty papers.

The final result:


Thanks so much for popping in - and make sure you stop by the Color Cast Designs website to snatch up the August releases before they're gone...and make sure you check out the site on the 21st when new items will hit the store - just in time for Fall!!!

Own It!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to stop in and quickly share a layout that I made back in July but never got around to sharing.  I actually really like it.  It's a bit messier and a lot more layers than my normal style and I think that's why I like it - it's something different:

I made this layout with my July 2017 kit from Hip Kit Club.

Thanks for stopping in!

Happy 2 || Pretty Little Studio

Hi everyone!  I wanted to pop in to share a new layout that I made for Pretty Little Studio with the Ain't Life Grand collection.  I really wanted to scrap a recent photo of my nephew's birthday and the colors in the Ain't Life Grand collection were perfect for highlighting the photo and the happy atmosphere of the event.

To begin, I took some of my favorite patterned papers from the collection and cut them into flags and punched out circles.  I then laid them all out in three banners that ran across the page and then machine stitched them all down.  Since this created a sort of busy background, I kept everything else really simple.  I'm pretty happy with the end result:
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
