I have had such a great time being the Guest Designer for Pretty Little Studio!  The Here Comes the Sun collection was so fun to work with and I still have a lot of product and projects to share so stay tuned!  Today I want to share two more layouts using this awesome collection designed by Marie-Pierre Capistran!  This first layout I used The Hello Hearts cut file from The Cut Shoppe!

I just love the colors in this collection and fun backing this cut file with the beautiful papers!  The photo is of my little Eli and my niece.  I love the how light and airy this layout turned out!

My next layout used the Addicted to Love cut file from The Cut Shoppe and I just love this cut file!!  I backed some of the file with pattern paper from the Here Comes the Sun collection and added some black cardstock behind some of the tiny hearts.

I just love the die cuts in the Here Comes the Sun collection so I added some around my photo and backed my photo with lots of paper scraps from backing the cut file!  Here is a look at the final layout and a few more close ups!

I am so excited to be Guest Designer over at Pretty Little Studio and I wanted to share a couple of the projects I have made using the Here Comes the Sun Collection!

For my first project I used a cut file from Wilna Furstenberg and added some watercolors that matched the collection.

I used the papers from the collection to add layers behind my photo and I just love these Think Positive stickers from the collection!  They are perfect to add to your layouts!

My second project used a cut file from Creative Scrappers called 36 Slices of Pie!  I used some of the 6×6 papers from the collection to back the cutfile!  I just love all the pretty colors in this collection!

I love how this one turned out and I even added some stitching with my sewing machine!  I added a few flowers from the die cut packs and used some new Pink Paislee foam Thicker words for my title!

The Crew – Sketch Challenge with Oh Snap Gonzo

Hello everyone!  I am here to share a layout with you today using the Hello Heather collection by Pretty Little Studio!  You can find a lot of the products I used in the Clique Kits shop!  I did pick up some of the Hello Heather pieces from the Pretty Little Studio Shop!  I am using a sketch today for inspiration and doing this challenge with Oh Snap Gonzo.  I used sketches when I am feeling low on the crafty mojo!  I have a Pinterest board called A Little Sketchy that has some of my favorite sketches and I add to it often!

The sketch has three photos but I decided to use one 4×6 on my layout!  I love how simple this sketch is and kept my layout pretty close to the sketch as I could.

I love all the bits of black in this collection and anything with polka dots is a plus for me!  The photo I used is of my and Sandra and our daughters when they came up to visit us just recently!  We had a great time and the girls were so glad to finally meet in person!  They had recently been talking via text message and video messenger!  It was so cute to hear them talking and when they finally did see each face to face it was like a movie as they ran up together with open arms and gave each other a big hug!  It is amazing the people you meet in this community and because of my love for scrapbooking I have a friendship with someone who I would have probably never met if it was not for this hobby of mine!

I did add some of the new Bella Blvd enamel hearts to my layout and you can pick them up in the Clique Kits shop!  They are so perfect I just love them and want them in every color!

This paper is available for purchase in the CK shop HERE!  Quantities are limited so act fast!  The exclusive die cuts are also available for purchase and these have been selling like hot cakes in the shop!

For my layout today I decided to use up some of my scraps and pull out some star dies from Stampin Up that have been sitting in my stash!

I kept my layout pretty simple and used a white background.  I cut  different sized stars out of a lot of my scraps and layered them up on my paper.  I added my photo to the center with of coarse lots of layers behind it!

I did keep the embellishments to a minimum but I did pull these acrylic XOXO pieces from my stash that were included in the CK limited edition XOXO kit!
