Summer Bliss Double Layout

Summer is almost here and I'm sure most of you out there cannot wait! I know my kids are excited!  Echo Park's Summer Bliss captures all the fun that is Summer.  I'm sharing that with you today in a double layout of fun beach photos from last summer.

Our family has a lot of beach photos and double layouts to capture all the fun in the sun is a must!

There are a lot of fun embellishments, my favorite being the flip flops.  Check out Summer Bliss at FotoBella, the perfect collection for your summer photos.

Have a fabulous day!

Herbs & Honey 2 Pager

   Basic Grey's Herbs & Honey I want it all bundle, from FotoBella, is packed full of country charm, which was just what I was looking for in this 2 pager that I scrapped from my little Brother's birthday party.

   I placed the photo of the Birthday boy coming out of the Berry Sweet Printed Kraft Bag, which I think works well with the  inked cardboard behind it. I cut the white banner from the Diecuts and Transparencies that says Oh Happy Day in half, and covered Oh with the striped Bottlecap Sticker. Then I added another sticker to place BIRTH  in between them using the Alpha Stickers.

    For the date I used the Jumbo Kraft Numbers  with the Mixed Brads, which I also used on the pink flower around the wreath frame that I made from one of the Snippets.I told you I'd use my leftover flowers from the jar of flowers that I made previously. I even made some new ones. The Raspberries Wood Die Cut went perfectly with these photos! I stamped the zigzag on the left page and the floral border on the right, using Prisma Markers to color in the flowers. I finished it off with red hand-stitching around the edges.

Thanks for your visit!

WRMK In Books Layout

Hello Jessica here with you today sharing a layout I did using the WRMK Jet set bundle.  I know this is a travel line but the papers are pretty versatile.  The colors are fun and bright which make them perfect for scrapbooking kids.

My daughter's nickname is goose.  Doing things like stacking laundry baskets and sitting in them is completely where she got this nickname from.  This is a normal occurrence  in our house and of course I had to snap a picture of it.

WRMK The Friendly Skies Layout

Hello I wanted to share with you a quick layout I did using the WRMK Jet Set bundle.  I'm slightly obsessed with taking pictures of sunsets, especially since I got my new camera for Christmas.  So, I have a layout to share of one of the many pictures that I have taken.  When I saw the starburst paper, I knew it would be cute for a layout with this picture and the colors were perfect.

Rich Stripe Sheet
Cherry Blossom Sheet
Bits & Pieces Sheet
Puffy Words
Giant Rhinestones
Titles & Accents Stickers
Round Glue Circles
Color Ink Pads
Rhinestone Jewel Strand

Paper Cutter
Double Sided Tape
Glue Stick
Hot Glue Gun
Craft Tweezers

Find the Ritz Vrocade Sheet and the ‘Beautiful’ section of the Bits & Pieces Sheet.

Cut the ‘Beautiful out and use a circle template or circle cutter to cut it into a 4” circle, and leaving the left side straight.

Spray the ‘Beautiful’ circle with the Biscotti Pearls Mist. Set aside to let dry.

Cut a 10” x 5” piece out of the Ritz Vrocade Sheet. Fold in half.
Using a bright pink ink pad, ink the edges of the card and down the center fold.

Using a lighter pink ink pad, ink all edges, over the bright pink ink. This will blend the color more, and smooth any hard lines the bright pink might have made.

Once the ‘Beautiful’ circle is dry, using a light teal shade ink pad, ink all around the circle. ht have made.

With double sided tape, secure the circle on the front of the card, ½” in from the left side fold. t have made.

Grab your Rhinestone Strand, thread it through the Gold Whatnots Bow.
With hot glue, secure the Rhinestone strand along the straight side of the ‘Beautiful’ circle. Make sure to cut the strand to fit the height of the card.
Be careful when hot gluing, and just use a tiny dot, so it doesn’t spread when pressing the strand to the card.

Stick the Gold Bow Giant Rhinestone to the Gold Bow Whatnots center.

Cut the Lined Bow section of the Bits & Pieces Sheet.
Cut a 4” circle out of the Ritz Vrocade Sheet. 

Using a gold ink pad, ink all edges of the inside of the card. With the bright pink ink pad, ink the circle. Using bright and light teal ink pads, layer up inking edges of the Lined Bow card.

Cut out a 3.75” x 4.75” piece out of the Rich Stripe Sheet. Ink the edges with a gold ink pad. Place the Coco Chanel Sticker to the piece, centered.
Using double sided tape, secure it, centered, to the right side of the inside of the card.

Using double sided tape, secure the circle and the Lined Bow card to the right side of the inside of the card.
Stick the ‘Let’s Get All Dolled Up’ Puffy Word, vertical along the left side of the Lined Bow Card. Add the Pink Heart Puffy Word to the left side of the word strip.

Place Glue Circles on the center of the Bow, and down the left side of the circle. Sprinkle some of the Antique Linen Distress Glitter on them. Press down with your finger so it covers the full glue circle.

Tap off the excess glitter.

Find the Rich Stripe Sheet. Cut a 11” x 9” piece. Place the card in the center of the sheet and trace it. Create the envelope however you think fitting.
I created the envelope so the side panels are 2” in width, bottom flap is 3.5” and the top flap is 2.5”.
Cut out the corners of the envelope, and use a straight edge to fold in the flaps.

Because of the height of the Giant Rhinestone on the card, I placed this inside the envelope, just to make sure there was enough space to slide it in.
Using a gluestick, secure the bottom flap to the side flaps. Smooth out with your fingers until they hold.

Choose some matching ribbon that will fit through the holes of the Black Whatnots Bow. Cut a piece of ribbon, between 30” to 40”.
Hot Glue the center of the ribbon across the front of the envelope. Make sure to line it up, so when it wraps around the back, it lines up with the top fold flap.

Secure the All Dolled Up Whatnots to the front of the card.

With the remaining part of the Rhinestone Strand, hot glue it across the front of the card, centered on the Ribbon.

Hot Glue the Black Whatnots Bow on the top flap of the back of the envelope. Only glue the top half of the bow.

Slip the card inside and wrap the ribbon around the envelope, string the ribbon through the Bow holes and tie.

Your Card and matching envelope are finished!

WRMK Fun Layout

Welcome, Jessica here with you today to share a layout a did using the We R Memory Keepers Jet Set Bundle.  I think this line is so fun.  It is actually very versatile also.  For those of you that don't know I'm obsessed with arrows.  I love them as a design element and they are completely functional which is a huge plus in my book!

I had these two pictures of my girls at the American Indian Museum.  They have this great kids area where they could play and learn at the same time.  Of course, they wanted to sit in the kayak.  I still need to add in my journaling down there at the bottom.  But, the block is there for it!
