Pool Fun

I got a bit messy with this next layout. I am IN LOVE with Shimmerz products!! They are truly amazing! I used 2 Vibez — Jeni B Bleu and Deap Blue Sea – to make my background. I then used 2 different Simple Stories Summer collections for my photo mats, chipboard and sticker embellishments.

Summer Fun

My sweet Bear playing in her pool last year. She sure was having lots of fun!


That PL-style card is actually a stencil by Crafters Workshop. I sure do love it! I added chipboard and enamel shapes to liven it up.


The design is based on Paper Issues “Sketchy Saturday”:

This sketch offered so many possibilities!! Will definetly keep it for later.

I was inspired by the blueish teal background based on Deanna’s Mood Board Challenge:


I almost went monochromatic…but with that orange pool in those pics, orange and other summery colors had to be represented! 😉

I even snuck in some of the Paper Studio “To Do List” washi tape from my May Use it or Lose It Challenge! 🙂

TFL! 🙂


Happy Girl and I {heart} You

My first layout is of pics of my cousin’s little girl, during Thanksgiving 2014. She was 2 at the time, and I just love her smile!

Happy Girl

Most products are Bo Bunny, with the cork pieces from Teresa Collins and brad from Basic Grey. Both items are from my March Use It Or Lose It Challenge.


I added the owl rub-on onto the cork hexagon.



I used a brad and inserted into the center of the cork flower.

My second layout is of my sweet baby Bear. This photo is so priceless, taken by my photographer friend almost 3 years ago. Just looking at this pic just makes my heart melt:

I heart you

The layout is based on Paper Issues March Sketchy Saturday Sketch:

I fell in love with ink splatters and the one photo design. My list of supplies are as follows:

papers, alphas, brads (March Use It Or Lose It Challenge): Basic Grey (Hey Girl!, Max & Whiskers, Knee Highs and Bow Ties)
veneer hearts: Studio Calico (colored using Clearsnap ink in Celadon and Tattered Angels mist in Blackberry Cordial)
ink blot stamps: CTMH
mist: Tattered Angels in Mallard

I did my title in the “I {heart} You” format to be submitted to ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge. I went back and did February 2013 – to substitute a heart for the word LOVE. And everybody knows how much I LOVED my baby Bear! Still do!

TFL! 🙂
