Love you / Pretty Little Studio-Feature Friday

Good morning everyone!! 
I'm here today to share a layout I created with the Beautiful, Here comes the Sun collection created by Marie-Pierre Capistran over at Pretty little Studio.
This week I'm featuring the beautiful clear polka dot sheet from her collection. I love the look of it and have it layered in two different places on the layout.

I started out splattering my background with some gold color shine and layering papers to show off the collection and photo. I sewed the clear sheet to the paper and then added some of the cute paper with those little flamingos on it! I matted my picture with some white card stock and layered a card behind to add some color.

I wanted to have more going on on the top so I added my tags and journaling there, This isn't something I usually do, I'm not big on showing my handwriting lol but I'm trying to get use to it, pushing myself  a bit with that. But I also added a bit of that pretty clear paper behind that tag as well, couldn't help it I loved the way it looked.

To finish everything off I grabbed a few of the die-cut packs and started pop dotting and layering, a bit more sewing and that was it.

So happy together 12x12 / Hip Kit Club CT

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing a layout that I created with July 2016 Hip Kits. This week my assignment was focus on photos. Like a lot of other people , I usually only scrap one picture on a layout, but this week I scrapped 4 pictures. They may be smaller pictures but there are still 4 of them,lol. 

I also kept the focus on the middle of the page, centered everything there and I really am happy with the way it turned out. I started out with a piece of American Crafts white card stock from the cardstock kit, grabbed my gold Heidi Shine and splattered it up the middle of the page. I grabbed my Main kit and pulled out Paige Evans, Pink Paislee polk a dot paper along with a hip kit exclusive paper created by DT member Kim Watson, The Happy Life-Omber Sky. I layered the two behind my photo and started to layer the embellishments and cut files.

I had cut out some of the pretty heart cutfiles that DT member Ashley Horton had created for July. I layered those to the right and right bottom of my photos. I grabbed my embellishment kit and pulled out a bunch of the Hip kit exclusives created by Kim Watson. The little tags, circles, tabs, sayings all came from the ephemera pack, then I layered some of the puffy stickers and the project life gold rub ons. 

I finished by adding that great flair badge with the camera on it and splattering a little bit of blue water color paint over everything in the center.

I really hope you like this layout and I hope you come back to see more of what I make. If you don't want to miss anything feel free to follow or subscribe to my blog and then you wont miss anything!

Both of us 12x12 layout / Pretty Little Studios

Good morning everyone. 
I'm sharing a layout created with Pretty Little Studios You&Me collection. Its suppose to be a valentines line but can be used for so much more.

This is a layout that is special to me and was also created as a gift for my sister. This layout is my Grandma, a very beautiful woman that we lost earlier this year to cancer. She was an amazing woman and I was so happy to get to spend time with her and let her get to know my kids and just have her in my life. 
This layout is actually of her and my sisters daughter and I thought it would be a nice memory for her to keep, I'm the scrappy one, so I thought I'd make it and put it in a frame for her so she can put it on her wall and see whenever she wants and so can her daughter.

I love this collection and how you can do so much with it. I added some triangles to the top left of my layout and the bottom right then sewed them down. After I had those down I started layering papers behind my photo. I added a doily and went in to the pretty cut-aparts and stickers to start my embellishing. I love the die-cut clouds, there so pretty. I grabbed my baby Chris wood alpha stickers and made my title but I wasn't quite happy with the look of it so I grabbed my American Crafts metallic gold pen and colored over then, I was happy with it then. I finished my layout off with some Heidi-shine and some water color splashes and a bit more sewing. 
I hope you enjoyed this layout and thank you for stopping by my blog! If you don't want to miss anything make sure to add me to your circle or follow me. Thanks!!

Outdoor fun with Daddy / PLS pinsperation

 Hey everyone! Tonight Im sharing a layout I created for Pretty Little Studios design team. Tonight I'm playing with the Pinterest inspiration mood board.

I used mostly the woodsy elements of the mood board. I even took inspiration from the tree branches for my background. I grabbed some distress in and a stencil and made some light leafs on the background. I also used some Heidi Swapp color shine in gold from some little splatters. After that I dove into the Woodland Collection and started layering!!

I used a cut file from the Cut Shoppe to start out my base for the layering on this layout. I grabbed my photo and matted it on some American Crafts white card stock and then started the layering of the Woodland papers. 

When I was done with the layering behind my picture I thought it was to much on one side and I knew I didnt want my title over there too so I started on my title area and then adhered that to the opposite side. Then it was time to play with the embellishments!!

I layered some tags with the word stickers and the die cuts, I LOVE that butterfly!! Oh so pretty!! I layered in some tabs, vellum tape and I even made an epoxy flair.
I had fun with this layout and hope you enjoyed it too!!
