You should have arrived from Laura’s Blog! If you need to start the hop from the beginning you can check out the full blog hop list down below.

 

This month we are using mood boards as our inspiration.

I pulled inspiration from both boards. I loved the soft pink tones in the first board and falling snow. In the second image I loved the stars so made sure to add some stars on my layout. I went into my stash of products from A Cherry on Top and pulled out some older but just as fabulous stuff! I really loved the pink in the Honey & Spice collection from Heidi Swapp so I used some of it to back a new cut file from Cut To You. I thought the Color Flow paper would be the perfect paper to back all the trees! Using one patter paper to back all the trees at once made it quick and easy to get this file backed!

I also pulled out some of the Crate Paper Snowflake collection which is a beautiful winter collection! There is a specialty paper in this collection that has stars with gold foil on it that I thought would be fun to fussy cut! I used some of these fussy cut stars to back the stars on the trees of my cut file.

I wanted to create something soft for my background so I used some vellum and tore it into strips and adhered down to a piece of white American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I distressed the edges of the vellum with my Tim Holtz scissors and love how it turned out. To add a little extra to the background I used some gold mist to add some splatter to the background.

I pulled out just a few embellishments form the Snowflake collection like these little houses and tucked them in next to the cut file. I added a chipboard tree from the Snowflake collection and some word stickers above my photos! The photos are selfies from my first holiday drink from Starbucks this year! The holiday drinks are always my favorite and it is a new tradition for my daughter and I to go and get one and purchase a new holiday mug!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! I hope you feel inspired to create with one of the mood boards we shared! If you do create a project using one of the mood boards please tag us on Facebook, Instagram or upload into the Cherry Gallery!  I hope you all have a great week and let me know in the comments if you are Starbucks holiday drink fan!

 

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.

I love the Pinkfresh Studio Floral Ephemera from the January Embellishment kit! I used some of the pieces in this pack around my layout.
