Love, Love, Love, All You Need Is Love

Hello friends! Today I am on the Just Nick Digital Cut Files blog sharing a love themed layout of my oldest son and daughter in law on their trip to Europe.  These lovebirds have done a lot of travelling in their 7 years of marriage.
For the background, I began with a 12X12 piece of white card stock and used the Mini Numbers Collage  6X6 Stencil by The Crafter's Workshop and added some modelling paste and let dry.  Then I used the Cubist 6X6 Stencil, also from The Crafter's Workshop and some Worn Lipstick Ranger Distress Ink. 
I love working with vellum and I had some Doodlebug Designs embossed red heart vellum in my stash that I thought would work perfectly for this layout  and of course some Just Nick Digital Cut Files.  I cut out the HeartsInfinity Hearts Frames and Lots of Love cut files on my Silhouette Cameo.  The vellum cuts like butter on blade depth 3 on the Silhouette Cameo.  
To adhere the vellum, I machine stitched the cut designs in place so there was no adhesive showing through onto the right side.  I added some sequins, some red twine bows and a flair button from A Flair For Buttons to complete the embellishing.
I hope you are inspired to use vellum on your projects.  Check out all the designs, including the designs I used on this layout in the Just Nick shop here.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!

All You Need Is Love

Hello followers! I hope you are having a good Sunday.  Today is Super Bowl Sunday and although I'm not much of a football fan, I love watching the halftime show.

Today I would like to share my first layout that I created with the February Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook.  

My parents will be married 58 years in July and I definitely wanted to document and scrap this milestone.  

I went with a grid design for this layout. Easy peasy.  I love doing grid design layouts.  It's like little mini canvasses on each square of paper.  For this layout I added stickers, clips, die cuts, a bow,  a flower,  a wood veneer arrow and the wood veneer  "Love", which I colored with Gelatos. 

Thanks for stopping by.  The February Main Kit can be purchased at

February Kit Sneak Peeks At My Creative Scrapbook

Hello friends! Happy Tuesday!  Today is sneak peek day at My Creative Scrapbook sharing the February kits.

For this month, I designed 7 layouts with the Main Kit.  I was very inspired with this lovely kit and was pleasantly surprised how much product was included in this kit.
February 2016 Main Kit

Here is one of my layouts with the February Main Kit of my daughter and son-in-law.  For this layout, I wanted to create a gold and black layout so I used lots of gold stickers.  For the wood veneer embellishments, I added some black embossing powder and heat set them with a heat gun.  

Next is the February Creative Kit.  Such bright fun colors!

The February LE Kit is perfect for the shabby chic lovers.

and finally the February Album Kit to create a Valentine's Day themed mini album.

What do you think?  Which one is your favorite?

Scrapping Our Stash January 2016 Blog Hop

Hello friends! So glad you could join me and some of my scrappy friends for the monthly Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop.  Below is a list and links to all the ladies participating in the hop. Be sure and visit everyone on the list.  Some will be offering giveaways.  Happy hopping!
For this blog hop we are using our stash of scrapbooking products that came out before the last CHA (Craft And Hobby Association Trade Show).  I thought I would use some of my Bella Blvd. stash of papers (Lucky Starz Collection) and several Bella Blvd. embellishments as well as some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons.  

 My son Clayton was two years old when we adopted our cat Asia.  She was also two years old and had been in a no kill shelter.
The poor kitty had been in a cage for 5 months and our family chose her to come home with us.  Clayton and Asia had a special bond since Clayton's siblings were grown up and married it was like his little sister.

Thanks for hopping by! Now it's on to Alison's blog.  I'm sure she has an awesome project to share.
