Love Bubba-Gossamer Blue And A Maya Road Sneak

Still hoarding a few layouts to share with you on the blog from the crop.  Not intentionally, of course, but because I just haven't posted them!

Today is a layout with some Gossamer blue from their Gramercy Road collection and a file from The Cut Shoppe.


Supplies: Pattern Paper, Stickers, Die Cuts, Enamel Dots & Chipboard-Gossamer Blue; Punch-Martha Stewart; Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Cut File-The Cut Shoppe

Let Them Eat Pie Cut File

I linked the cut file, because it would be hard to find just by looking.  I basically used the lower half of the file for my layout.  Embellished the letters with some enamel dots and added some journaling in!

Just a close up of the cluster!  I loved these soft colors, but have held onto the collection for awhile, because I just wasn't sure what to use it on.


AND, I am up on the Maya Road blog for the first time today HERE.  I would love if you would go check out my project.  Here is a sneak of it, using some Fancy Pants and DecoFoil along with Maya Road goodies!  I am so excited, because it feels like I am "official" now!  And yep, I glittered and liked it!

You & Me & Us-Fancy Pants Designs

Wednesday anyone?!  YAY!  Here is hoping I have a productive day at the paying job today. A deadline of Friday to get some stuff done and I ran into a snag that hopefully our software people can get me thru!

But, you didn't come for work related things did you?  You came to see another project!  And since I finally managed to get the Fancy Pants collection "Flutter", I decided to whip out a layout with it.

This layout has some major foam adhesive on it to create the shadow box effect!  So, I kept everything else to a minimum. I had a small "tear" in this top corner, so just embellish over it right?!

And this title just kind of came to me when I was looking thru the die cuts. I added the arrow at the last second.  And then I needed the butterfly!  LOL

Well, there is another layout in the books.  Or maybe in a pile, waiting to get into a book?!  How many layouts do you have stacked up?  Just when I think I have them all put away, I find more.  Have a great Wednesday!

The Tilt-Using Up My Gossamer Blue

As you can tell, I am trying to make a dent in my Gossamer Blue kits that I had let sit around.  I packaged up a few of them when I went to the crop a couple of weeks ago and tried to work with them the most. 

And as I post this, I am noticing I have a thing for two picture layouts lately! Even ones that I haven't posted yet!  So, just fair warning, there may be layouts with two pictures on them a lot.  This one is from my October GB kit, I think.  


"no supply listing, because I didn't note it when I was doing this"

I thought that little rub-on saying was perfect to work into the title and because of the pictures. And seriously, Jetson tilts his head like this all the time!

I sometimes debate about what to take detail shots of.  I know a lot of people like to read journaling. I may not do a lot of it, but if you cannot read it on the main project photo, I try to include a detail shot.

Alright, that's it for tonight (this morning, etc!)  Have a great Tuesday and I might just be back tomorrow with a Fancy Pants layout! Thanks for stopping by.

Adorable Moments-Crate Paper

So, I bought the Confetti collection from Crate Paper for an assignment coming up in the CREATE magazine this month.  After getting it home and looking at it a little more closely, I wondered what the HECK I was going to do with a pink giraffe?  This was seriously a joke with me and my friend, Lindsey.  I just kept asking her what the heck am I going to do with it.

Well, fast forward to the crop that I went to.  I was determined to make that giraffe work!  I remember that we had taken some cute pictures feeding the giraffes at the zoo here in the fall.  BAM, problem solved!

This also shows that you don't have to use a birthday theme for a birthday!


Supplies:  Pattern Paper, Die Cuts, Chipboard, Vellum, Stickers-Crate Paper; Letters-American Crafts; Sequins-Unknown; Adhesive-ThermOWeb

And then I was trying to figure out how to work flowers into the layout.  I know giraffes probably do not eat actual flower leaves, but it makes for a great look on the layout!

Just a shot of the title area.  I actually just realized I didn't do any journaling on this layout. I may have to go back and add a little!

And since I have been "working for the weekend" all week long, I am a happy girl that it's Friday. Not a lot planned for the weekend, although I would love to get the front flower bed cleaned out. We shall see, since I have said that for a couple of weeks now!  Have a great one.

& We Wait-a Flair for Buttons, Gossamer Blue and Paper Issues

Whee, it's Wednesday and I am excited about that let me tell you!  Sharing a layout here on the little blog today based on a sketch from Paper Issues, but that also uses some {a flair for buttons} flair on it!

Which reminds me to tell you that I have another layout up over on the {a flair for buttons} blog. You can find that posting HERE.

This was a fun little sketch to work with and it worked perfectly with my pictures.  I knew I wanted these pictures to be smaller, just for the fact they aren't "great" pictures.  Toothbrush in one hand, iPhone in the other trying to take a pic in a dark hallway!

Gossamer Blue April Kit

And not listing supplies individually, because I didn't note them as I went along!  I know there is Crate Paper, Gossamer Blue, Simple Stories and of course the flair from {a flair for buttons}!


Close up of the journaling, done on my Silhouette Cameo.  I wish I could remember which font I used.  If I do, I will update my post here.


That's all for this Wednesday. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day and at least craft a little.  And since I am writing this Tuesday night, I am not getting any crafting done because Marvel's Agents of Shield season finale is getting ready to come on!

Let's Sleep In-Gossamer Blue and Paper Issues Crop

I still have a couple of projects from the Paper Issues online crop that I haven't shared yet.  This is one of them.  I "think" it is from my January Gossamer Blue kit. Quite frankly, I had stuff everywhere and I am not sure where I pulled things from!  So, no supply list for this one, just pics!

I think this was for an "inspired" by challenge.  I cannot remember and there are too many posts to go back thru to find it!


I know there is Simple Stories, Pebbles, October Afternoon in this for sure!! Just a little journaling, these two hardly ever cuddle together.


And yes, I actually think it was a Wednesday that I caught them doing this one day after work.


There is just something about this "today" die cut from Simple Stories that I love!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to capture all those "little" moments if you can!
