{a flair for buttons} & Go Belly Up

So, so, so excited!  Shelley from {a flair for buttons} asked me to join her team last week!  I have loved her flair for a LONG time and am so happy to be on her team.  I have a ton of ideas that I cannot wait to do!

You can see the announcement HERE if you want!  And her Etsy shoppe is HERE.  She adds new styles of flair all the time and they are super cute!

This is my last layout with the July Gossamer Blue kits.  I just hadn't posted it yet.  I did the GB sketch challenge with this one, but just changed it up a bit.

And some more circles.  And mist, plus a circle covering a "mist-hap"!

That's it, that's all I have got today.  I have been on vacation since Friday and am basically a vegetable at this point!  I am going to have to get back to routine and soon!

Vellum with 3 Birds Design

Vellum, have you used it?  Me, not so much!  I started scrapping after it had kind of faded away. There have been pieces I have used here and there, but they were all plain, basic vellum.

Well, I am here to tell you 3 Birds is here to change that! The Midday Medley 12 x 12 paper pad collection has 10 pieces of vellum.  And not just any vellum, but fun pretty vellum, that I don't want to cut!

I used some on both my layouts today. The other layout you can see HERE over on the 3 Birds Studio Blog.  It was a hard one for me…..

This layout is based on the Creative Scrappers Sketch 276, I just loved the way it looked!

I trimmed the flowers out of one of the 12 x 12 papers.  And those gems made a perfect trail!

I hope you have a great Tuesday.  Hopefully not too hot where you are at.  Here it's miserable.  I swear, I think I could cook something on the sidewalk in the afternoons!

Bunny Rescue And A New Cut File Shop!

If you have been around my blog for awhile, you will remember me talking about the baby bunnies we had in the yard.  We had three different sets of them we had to rescue.  Not sure why momma rabbit thought it was a good idea to build nests in the backyard with the dogs, but they did!

I managed to snag a few pictures of the first and second group after we got them relocated and protected from the dogs. These pictures are from the first litter.  

This is one of the "three in an hour" layouts I did a week or so ago! I just stuck it and forgot about it!  LOL

I loved the little flower pick and thought it would be cute to add a bow.  Hey, a bow makes everything look cute!

Journaling tag, I decided to offset it for some reason.  It just looked better when I did.

Short and sweet today for a Monday.  BUT before I go, I love it when my friends start their own little fun things!

Juliana Michaels from 17 Turtles has started her own Etsy shoppe with cut files!  You have to go check it out.  She has a unique style and some fun cut files that I cannot wait to grab.  Go have some fun!

Out and About-The Cut Shoppe Sketch and a 3 Birds Design Sneak

At the crop this weekend, it was just fun to play around.  But during the week, I had to get three other layouts done for the Gossamer Blue album challenge.  And, I might have waited until the last possible moment that I could have!  I managed to do three layouts in three hours, a world record for me.  I am one that will fuss with a layout for a few hours or leave it sit overnight!  

This one is for The Cut Shoppe's August sketch challenge. I used the "out and about" file on my layout and then my July Gossamer Blue kits.

I still wanted to cluster, even though there were lots of triangles!

CREATE Design Team Call and a CREATE Layout

Everyday Is aka Sheldon In A Top Hat-My Mind's Eye

Happy Tuesday everyone.  Told you I would have some My Mind's Eye on the blog and here it is!  
I went to a crop this weekend and decided to just work on fun stuff, no design team work.  I think it was a break I truly needed.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the challenge of DT work and that's why I do it, but my mind just needed a resting period.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw this sneak.  And if you don't follow me on Instagram I would love for you to!  @katrinahunt is my Instagram account.

I was looking at the top hat wondering what I was going to do with it.  It fell on my layout near Sheldon and poof!  It was on glued and on his head before anything else was glued down on the layout!


I wanted the tag to hang off of my page, but still wanted my layout to fit in my page protector.  (hmmm..when I get around to putting my layouts in albums!) So I placed my tag where I wanted it and then put the edge of the tag on my trimmer at 12 inches.  Then I knew how much to cut off of the other side.

Large photo=minimal embellishing, at least in my book.  So the big chipboard piece was perfect for my title.  I added the polka dot heart just for fun.

I love this collection, I just wish there were more embellishments that went with it.  Or it could have been the fact that my pictures I had at the crop just didn't work with the collection.  That can happen!  

Have a great Tuesday and I will be back tomorrow!

The Sweet Life-Gossamer Blue and Creative Scrappers

Well, this past month has been a little less than productive for me!  I was on a crunch to get my four Gossamer Blue layouts done for the Album Challenge.  I almost just skipped it entirely, but I was at the halfway point to a new album, so that was my motivation.

I used sketches for 3 of the layouts that were actually challenge sketches, so I killed two birds with one stone!

This is base on the Creative Scrappers Sketch #275 and you can find the blog posting with the sketch HERE.

Gossamer Blue July 2014 Kits

And just going to be honest here, I did not keep track of any of my supplies.  Shocker, but on these kits, I think from now on, I may not list them.  Just the month of the kit.  It's a lot of work to keep up with and generally I don't mind doing it.  The fact that I was in a hurry to get my four layouts done was the reason this time.  And for August, I have already done three layouts and didn't keep track of those since I was at a crop!  LOL

I decided this cute little cork piece would be the title focus of this layout.  I made a little cluster to tie it all together.

Since this picture was while we were on a road trip, I thought the car was fitting.  I also just used the arrows as fun little accents.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog today.  There will probably be lots of my layouts from my Gossamer Blue kits this week, plus maybe a little My Mind's Eye!
