Snapshot | 5th & Monaco

Hey friends I am back with a layout using the beautiful Pink Paislee 5th & Monaco collection I received in my monthly Design Team box from A Cherry on Top! I instantly fell in love with this collection when it released! It is even better in person friends! I love the beautiful floral designs and the colors! Oh and we can’t forget that there is a bold black and white stripe that always has my heart. I added everything I could from this collection to my DT box! I love it all! I have some new cut files to work with from Rulanas Cut files! She reached out to me recently and asked if I would like to create with some of her files and of coarse I said yes! They are so pretty and perfect for all types of paper crafts! You all know how much I love cut files and working with small businesses! I knew the Floral Borders cut file would go perfect with the Pink Paislee 5th & Monaco collection.

I really wanted the Floral Borders cut file to stand out so I decided to cut it out on some black textured cardstock. I just love how it pops on this page against the colors in this collection. It helps the pink flowers and green leaves really stand out against the pattern paper background I picked out.

I would normally pull a piece of white cardstock for my base but I had to use Paper 10 from 5th & Monaco on this layout! I love how the black cut file looks against this polka dot paper! I embellished the layout using die cuts, stickers, dimensional flowers and an epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio. For my title I used one of the gorgeous gold phrase puffy Thickers. Here is a look at my completed layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you will head on over to Rulanas Cut Files and have a look at all her beautiful files. To get your crafty hands on this collection from Pink Paislee you can find it HERE at A Cherry on Top.

 

Hip Kit Club | Fave

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a new layout for the Hip Kit Club using the January 2020 kits and an exclusive HKC cut file. You can get access to free cut files on the Hip Kit Club website when you register for a free account HERE!

Good Times | Jillibean Soup

Hello Everyone! Today I am sharing a layout that I created for the Spiegelmom Scraps & Scrappin Happy Studio Instagram Hop! I love both of these ladies and the products they offer in their shops! I was very excited when Jody asked me to join them in this hop!

I pulled out my Good Times cut file that I gave out to my February crop attendees and some Jillibean Soup Garden Harvest collection! The colors in this collection make my heart race. They are just gorgeous and can be used for so many projects! I wanted to document the group at my crop so I printed out one of the photos we took in black and white since we had so many colors going on in the photo. 

We had so much fun at the crop and I am so thankful for all these wonderful creative ladies! I used some American Crafts smooth white cardstock to cut my file and also as my background paper. I pulled out some Catherine Pooler inks in coordinating colors and adding some splashes of color to the white cardstock. I then picked out the patterns of paper that I wanted to back my file with. It is super simple to trace the letters and cut them out to add to the cut file.

I love to add the die cuts tucked into my word cut files like this. The Jillibean Soup Pea Pod Packs are jam packed with beautiful pieces! I also added some tiny black heart sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps and an epoxy heart from Scrappin Happy Studio!

To last thing I did was add one of the washi stickers from Jillibean Soup to the bottom of my page and some fun tabs to the top of my photo. Here is a look at my completed layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please take a minute and check out Spiegelmom Scraps and Scrappin Happy Studio. Have a wonderful day!

Flower Garden Cut File – Marvelous Easter

Happy Monday!  I am so excited to share my first project for The Cut Shoppe Design Team!

Today I am using the Flower Garden cutfile and I altered it a little bit to fit my photo!

I used my March Clique Kit featuring Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection!  I just love the colors in this kit and all the fun embellishments!

I removed the Bloom&Grow saying on the cutfile by simply just snipping it off with my scissors!  I knew it did not go well with my photo but I wanted to use the flowers!

I used some White Smoke Heavy Cardstock from the Clique Kits shop as my base and added some color using some mist to match the colors in the collection!

To finish off my layout I embellished lightly around my photo that I added layers too and then added a few enamel dots from the kit!

This layout came together very quickly and I just love how the flowers add so much color to my layout!  You can find this cut file HERE in The Cut Shoppe!  You can check out my finished layout on The Cut Shoppe Blog HERE!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your day!

 

All That Fringe

Hey Everyone!  I am so excited to share this layout with you today!  I have been neglecting my blog and my craft desk over the last few months!  I had to start making time to create because it is what I enjoy!  I have let other things get in the way and I have decided that some things just have to be let go and I will no longer stress over it!  This mama needs to be happy and creating makes me happy!  I have created so many layouts since last week and I can not wait to share them all with you!  I have a few kits stacked up that I have been dying to dig into and the February Clique Kit has been calling my name!

Fringe can be seen all over the scrappy world these days and more and more people are creating their own fringe embellishments!  At CHA 2016 Maggie Holmes released some fringe heart embellishments that have been a huge hit in her Bloom collection!

If you check out YouTube you will find a ton of DIY fringe tutorials lately!  Love how one item can create such buzz and inspiration and get everyone creating!  I took this inspiration and created a fun layout with so much fringe!  I have had my fringe scissors for over a year and they have been collecting dust so it was time to dust these babies off and put them to work!

Creating this layout was so fun and super simple!  I had been cutting the exclusive February cut files with my silhouette and after cutting out the heart file I was left with a big cut out heart on a 12×12 paper!  I stared and stared at this paper and hated to just toss the scrap when I had the idea to create a large fringe heart!  I love the end result and think this one will be hung up in my craft space!  I cut strips from the 12×12 papers in the kit and also some of the add on 6×6 paper pad.  Once I had all my strips cut out I adhered them down to a white piece of card stock using my Tombow adhesive.  Once they were all attached to the card stock I added foam to the back of the cut file and placed on top of the fringe covered white cardstock!

Now since I did not plan to create this layout to begin with the heart file was not centered before I cut it but I am totally ok with that!  What I love is that the one cut file I cut ended up being used for two totally different layouts with totally different end results!  I can not wait to share the other layout with you!  The Clique Kits Hot Mess cut files were designed by Just Nick and have been some of my favorites!

I have used the heart file over and over again!  The Clique Kits shop has a digital shop filled with great cut files at a great price!  You have to check it out!  There are also a few of the February Hot Mess kit available so if you want to get your hands one you can check it out HERE!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my layout!  I have recently changed over my blog to WordPress so if you are not yet following me here I would love it if you did:)  Have a wonderful day and I hope you get some time to do something creative today!
