Wild Things

Lovin’ the Office Suite collection from Fancy Pants Designs! I got the chance to work with some Spellbinders dies for this page, too.

I normally would think about using the label dies on a one by one basis but in this case I really liked the idea of using them stacked up as the main paper focus on my page.  They create their own design as a collective element.

I used a black pen to line just along the edges of the embossing line to accent each label.

The butterfly dies were adorable and perfect for my “Wild Things” theme.

We got this photo strip from one of those mall photo booths that always produce some fun. Those smiles are infectious!

Thanks for stopping by to look!

Hey There Handsome

Let’s hear it for the boys!

Seriously, the guys are always underrepresented and if this kiddo would stop moving long enough for me to take more pictures of him maybe I’d scrap him more!!

But today you can check out this gorgeous child of mine… (I’m not a proud mama or anything…)

I meannnnn…. really!!

This concentric wood circle paper is the coolest.  It made a super background for this masculine layout. It compelled me to sew even more circles and sprinkle embellishments ‘round.

I used more mist as paint on this one… this time behind the photo mat.

I always try to “sandwich” my photos.  This one’s on top of the mat layers and I added a drawn gold border, paper clip and a hearts rub-on on top.

I also really dig the gold Scrabble-like letters, too.  #CUTE, indeed!   

::sigh:: I <3 this little boy. 

You Are Lovely Right Now

This is probably my favorite layout that I’ve done in a long time.  I really love fussy cutting these types of florals… they’re just SO pretty.  This is another page created from the March Hip Kit.  I can’t get enough of this month’s collection!

Aren’t those colors just gorgeous? For some reason I have a hard time finding paper that really goes with bright green grass photos but the green leaves here and the crinkled tissue (old Pink Paislee) were the perfect match to my summer photos.

I used a lot of mist droplets and little bunches of thread to go with the soft watercolor feel of the flowers.

My photo cluster has a whole buncha layers, just as I like it.  I hid bits of ephemera all over the place! And you know I can’t resist adding some stitching.

The “watercolor” around the outer edge is just watered down mist.  I dipped a medium width brush in the color mist and dragged it messily along the edges of the paper. 

Love, love, LOVE this page!
