..:: celebrate making memories ::..

Hi friends! I'm here today with a project using a couple of the September Release sets from Color Cast Designs. These confetti leaves are completely awesome. Here is my project:

Here are a couple of close ups of those amazing leaves: 

I used one of these Currently Tags (also from the Color Cast September Release) as part of my title (I used the word "making").

Most of my other supplies are from the Paper Issues Store. My background paper and the huge "memories" word are from Dear Lizzy's most recent collection, Star Gazer.  And all of the other cards and embellishments are from the Rocktober Kit (like a swag bag on crack) from Paper Issues. I also based my layout design on this Sketchy Saturday sketch.

But don't take my word for it...I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy.

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon! October Hip Kit is here!  Watch for a new layout using the kit, by the end of the week! :-)

Hi friends! Here today with a layout that I made for the Hip Kit Club this week.  My assignment this week was a product focus -- using the Paige Taylor Evans stamp set in the September Embellishment Kit. 

I grabbed some coral ink by Hero Arts and stamped that flower about a 110x (give or take). And then I cut them out!

I used Tuscan Sun Shimmerz Spritz and Caribbean Sun Shimmerz Spritz (both from the September Color Kit) to create a background for my photo, and to anchor the flowers a bit.

I used both exclusive alpha (from the September Main kit and the Embellishment kit) for my title. 

This was a super fun layout -- and I love how it turned out. I made a process video if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!

Hi friends!  I'm sharing another layout that I made using the September Hip Kits and a free cut file by Jessica Fabiano.  My assignment this week had a focus on the Mixed Media Kit, and was part of the Mixed Media Monday blogpost on the Hip Kit Club Blog.

I started with some of the Shimmerz Tuscan Sun Spritz included in the Mixed Media Kit. I saturated the bottom half of the white card stock and then applied some salt while it was still wet. The salt reacts with the paint and changes the look. You get something that looks like this:

I also added some splatters of the Tuscan Sun Spritz as well as the Caribbean Sunset Spritz to add just a touch more texture.

I backed the flower cut file with paper from Paige Taylor Evans Turn the Page collection (paper 2) and I just love how that looks!

Tangled thread and more splatters for the win. But don't take my word for it! Check out my process video if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
