I ♥ Us | Color Cast Designs

Good morning all!  We are getting closer and closer to Christmas and the new year, which just totally blows my mind!  This year sped by!

I wanted to pop in and share a recent layout that I made with one of the November releases from Color Cast Designs.  I combined this acrylic title with the lovely Gratitude Documented collection from Bella Blvd to create this layout:


And please notice that I used a bright, colorful background for this one!  Lol.

Thanks so much for stopping in...happy Friday and enjoy the weekend!

Hello Beautiful || Color Cast Designs

Hi everyone!  Happy December (WHAT?!?!)!  I totally forgot to share a layout that I made last month for Color Cast Designs.  

I had a lot of fun combining the awesome Bohemian Dream collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio with a few different acrylic pieces from Color Cast Designs.  I used one of my old faithful designs to create this:


I love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping in.  Have a lovely weekend!

Together || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning everyone!  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the U.S.  :)
I wanted to pop in and share a new layout that I created for Pretty Little Studio with the Feels like Fall collection.  I decided to create a layout that wasn't Fall-themed, but instead focused on the "togetherness" in the collection.
To begin, I picked out the blues/mints from the collection to create with.  I then created a simple design by laying out my elements in a horizontal line across my background.  I finished off with minimal embellishments and splatters.

Here it is:
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy your day!

2 Month Spread

Hi everyone!  I wanted to stop in and share the spread I made to document Piper's second month.  I used the Zoey kit from Felicity Jane to create this 2-page spread:




I love this kit!  And I love documenting my girl this way! :)

25 Days of Christmas Tags



Good morning everyone!!  Every year the wonderful and talented Tracey McNeely hosts the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  It's 25 days of inspiration from the teams from some of your favorite crafty companies.  Today is Jillibean Soup's day and I am so happy I get to participate for the second year in a row!

This year I am feeling very nontraditional about my Christmas color palette.  Which is why my tag for this year looks like this...


I used one of the new shaker tags from Jillibean Soup and watercolored the background.  Once that was dry, I used some Jillibean stamps to create a random star pattern over all the tag.  Then I colored the stars in with a sparkly purple pen.  I really like the way it turned out.

And since we're sharing tags today, here is another one that I shared on Instagram a few weeks ago for the Jillibean Soup shaker Instahop...I plan on using it for Christmas, as well...and it fits in with my nontraditional theme (but still star-studded!) :)
Thanks for popping in!

Scrapping for Fun!

YES!  You totally read that title correctly - I got some just-for-fun scrappy time in the other day!  My husband took Piper away from me and basically locked me in my scrap room.  He knew how much I missed it.  He's such a great guy.  In that 4-hour block I was able to create 3 layouts!!

The first one I'm going to share with you is a scraplift of an amazing layout by Corrie Jones.  I really wanted to scrap these photos of Piper and I thought my Bella Blvd stash of the Addison collection would complement the photos perfectly:

Gosh, that layout was fun to make!  :)

Have a nice day!
