Ahoy There | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe using the awesome new Ahoy There cut file together with some Simple Stories travel products!


Ahoy There

I cut the design from some red patterned paper and then backed it with a colourful stripe paper. I then added some craft foam on the underneath side and adhered it down to my background cardstock. I also added some foam dots underneath the points on the wheel. 

I had the perfect photo for this cut file, its of my son at Disneyland Paris, there was a big boat wheel in the playground area and he loved it! I placed my photo on the right hand side of the page and tucked in a frame and some stickers to add some interest and draw the eye to the photo.

I also layered some stickers over the top of the photo on the left hand side. The compass ones were perfect for the centre of the cut file design.  I also added a flair button to the very centre to enhance the design even more.

A few of the die-cuts were also great for embellishments, I added the Journey die-cut underneath the 'Ahoy There', I liked the pop of black and white down there. Some cute little ship wood veneer pieces just had to go on this page too. I placed one in between the 'Ahoy' word and the 'There' word. I also added a wood veneer large map marker to the top as I thought it looked good there!

Be Yourself | Boheiman Dream Collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio and this week we are featuring Selfie's! You can't go past a good Snapchat filter for a good photo of yourself that you are happy to put on a layout!
I decided to document my selfie photo using the gorgeous Bohemian Dream collection!

I chose the 'B' side of the Kaleidoscope paper for my background paper, I then cut a strip from the 'B' side of the Flower Child paper to lay horizontally and I then cut some smaller strips from the flower side of the Flower Child paper and tucked them in to the top and bottom of the striped paper. I matted my photo with two of the pieces from the Beautiful Mess paper . I also tucked in a paper doily in between the 2 papers I matted with. I added some craft foam underneath the whole photo mat and adhered it down overlapping the striped paper. I also tucked in one of the stickers on the right of my photo from the accessory sticker sheet   

Once the photo was stuck down I began to embellish the layout further, tucking in lots of the florals from the die-cut pack in and around my photo. I also added some of the phrases like Shine Bright and Be Yourself Bravely from the die-cut pack. I added these things as a reminder to myself that it is in fact ok to Shine Bright and Be Yourself Bravely!

Up in the top right corner, I created a cluster of embellishments including a floral die-cut, a butterfly die-cut and one of the labels from the sticker sheet. I also added the date stamp of the day I took the Snapchat selfie! I also stapled one of the cute banners from the die-cut pack to the top right corner of my photo. Some of the small white phrase stickers are perfect for adding a little extra detail and some words that are meaningful to the page. The Snapchat filter has some nice colours in it so the sticker that says Live A Colourful Life was perfect to add!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to scrapbook more layouts with photos of yourself included on them!

Happy creating!

I Love You This Much | Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

 Today I have a new design team layout to share with you created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!

The Stripes paper from this collection is one of my favourites so I decided I would use part of it to back behind a cut file title. I cut the title out from white cardstock and then backed it with the stripe paper. I then chose the 'B' side of the Bingo paper with the red background to create a contrast between the 2.

Once the cut file was backed I added some craft foam to underneath the title and then adhered it to the red background paper. I chose a smallish size photo to add as the title is quite a big element, I didn't want to overcrowd the page too much. I adhered the photo at the top of the title and then added some of the journal cards to the left of my photo. I did overlap the title on top of the photo and the journal cards.

I added some embellishments on top of the cut file like a flair button from my stash and some wood veneer pieces too. The fabric heart was also from my stash, this was added to the right of  the bottom of the title. A couple of the stickers from the sticker sheet and the layered stickers were also added and they were perfect for this layout.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Boys | Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers to share with you using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!

This photo of my boys is one of my all time favourites! This collection was perfect to document it, all the elements were just right and went so well with the design of my page. I started off with the 'B' side of the Retro Slides paper  I love those spots! To break up all the spots, I used the strip that says 'This Boy is My Hero' from the Border Stripes paper and placed it towards the top of the page. I also tucked in a piece of the red from the same paper above the title one.

To mat my photo, I chose 2 papers from the 4' x 6' journal cards paper and also layered a smaller piece of red either side of the photo. Once I had my photo adhered to the journal cards, I added some twine from my stash for some added texture and tied it in a bow to the left side of the photo. 

The flair button I have added is from my stash and it says, 'Hello there, Handsome' very fitting for my boys! I also added the layered 'Boys' banner sticker underneath my photo. This became my title. I took one of the border stickers from the 12' x 12' sticker sheet and trimmed it down to add below the photo mat. I also added another of the layered stickers underneath the border sticker.  Lastly I adhered a wood veneer arrow near the right of the photo and also scattered some of the wood veneer hexagons too. I also added the date stamp of the date that the photo was taken. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Love Here and Now | Happiness | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the gorgeous Happiness collection.

That wreath paper from the Happiness collection is absolutely amazing and really doesn't need a lot added to it. I decided to just cut out a wreath cut file design that is from Neat and Crafty Cutz, owned by fellow designer Anita Bownds. I love how it looks overlaying all that gorgeous colour on the paper.

I cut the wreath design from plain white cardstock and then adhered it overlapping the wreath design on the paper. I fussy cut some of the butterflies out of the butterfly paper and layered scattered around the wreath cut file. I also added some of the gorgeous clear stickers both on top of and underneath the cut file design. My photo is matted with one of the papers from the 6' x 8' paper pad. I tucked the photo under the cut file and over towards the left of the page. I also added some extra ephemera pieces tucked under the photo to add extra texture and interest.

You can see in the detail photo above the clear floral sticker that I have overlayed on top of the cut file and some of the butterflies that were adhered to the top of the cut file. I love how the paper has so much detail and colour that all the hard work is already done for you and its just a matter of adding a few things to enhance it. To the right of my photo, I have cut out one of the small journal cards from the cut apart sheet and then layered some of the accessory stickers over the top of the journal card, the stickers help to tell the story of my photo which is a special moment shared between my sister and her youngest daughter.

In the photo above you can see the cluster of embellishments to the left of the photo. Here I have added a heart clear sticker, some floral die-cuts and some of the fussy cut butterflies. My title is made up of the chipboard titles and some of the cardstock titles. I also layered some clear stickers at the top of the photo and under the die-cut floral piece. I love how the clear stickers have the watercolour look to them.

Adored | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone!

Today I have new design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe to share using the gorgeous Flutterby cut file.


Flutterby

I cut the Flutterby design out from white textured cardstock and then chose some of my favourite papers from a 6' x 6' paper pad and backed all the butterflies with the different papers. Once it was backed, I adhered it down to another piece of white textured cardstock, leaving the wings of the butterflies so that they could be bent up. I love the dimension and shadows this creates.

I then machine stitched around the circle and through the centres of the butterflies to add dimension and texture. My photo was matted on white cardstock and I placed it to the bottom right of the layout. I tucked in some of the embellishments on the right hand side of the photo. 

On the left of the photo, I added a tag with some twine. I also added a few phrase stickers to help tell the story of the layout both above the tag and also under the photo. I added some of the die-cut butterflies and a wood veneer one over the top of the cut file design ones plus I took a flair button from my stash and added that too. 

Lastly I added a few pastel coloured enamel dots to enhance some of the colours and a wood veneer title overlapping the photo.

Thank you for stopping by today!

A Happy Little Adventure | Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

 Today I have a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!

One of my favourite papers from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection is that yellow globe paper. It is actually the 'B' side of the Lad Plaid paper! I decided to cut out a white globe cut file design to place over the top of the yellow globes. I like how the white really pops off the yellow. I machine stitched around the circle of the globe to add texture and to help secure it down to the paper.

I decided to scrap a photo of myself and my eldest son while on holidays a few years ago. I love this photo of us! I cut 2 papers from the 3' x 4' journal cards paper to layer under my photo and then placed the photo over on the bottom left of the page. I also tucked in one of the bingo cards from the Bingo Cards paper above the photo. The wood veneer pieces I got this month are super cute! I added one of the arrows to the bottom of the photo.

My title consists of mainly stickers from the sticker sheet and I placed on the right side of the page to balance out the bottom left size.  I also added another of the wood veneer arrows next to the word 'Little'. I added one of the layered stickers down near the base of the globe design and also put one of the border strip stickers on top of the base of the globe. Lastly I added some splatters of black mist and the date stamp and that finished mt layout for this week. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!
