Rainbow

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Color Vibe Collection.  These color vibes collections come in a variety of different packs.  I decided to use the pack of lights for my layout.



I started off my layout by cutting out a cut file from COAPA.  I knew I wanted to do a rainbow theme with the pretty colors in these collections.  I backed the cut file with the dots side of the papers and stitched with matching floss.



I used this sweet photo of my daughter walking on the beach.  The photo really went well with my quote.  It's so important to enjoy the little things in life.



The color vibes collection also has all of these gorgeous alphas!  They come in all the colors!!
 


Using this collection was a fun little challenge for me.  I'm usually pretty heavy on embellishments but this layout really didn't need much else. 



Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:
Color Vibe Lights kit 
Color VIbe Lights Alpha Sticker Book
Teal Foam Alphas 
Pink Foam Alphas

Life is Good

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Pretty Little Studio using the Woodland collection. What can I say about this collections, pretty colors, flowers and butterflies....yes please! It's so very pretty!



I knew I wanted to use these pretty frames on my layout as soon as I saw them. But I only realized after my layout was done that I actually didn't use any pattern paper at all! The whole layout is just embellishments!



It's so easy to make a layout when there are so many beautiful embellishments available. I just added a bit of stitching and thread to finish it!

Adventure Awaits

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Echo Park using the new Scenic Route collection.  Although this is a travel themed collection, I instantly knew I wanted to use it for my son's grad photos.  I had these awesome photos of my son sitting on his car looking at a map, it was just perfect for this collection!


I kept the design of my layout pretty simple.  I just added layers of papers and embellishments.



I really loved all the quotes and sayings in this collection.  I always like to add a lot on my layouts.



Just a few little pennants and enamel dots to finish it up!



I don't very often use dark backgrounds but I love the dramatic effect it created for this layout!



Beach Days

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Simple Vintage Coastal collection.  I'll admit, I have a thing for beach themed collections.  But this one is more than pretty, the corals and teals are sooo very pretty.  I couldn't wait to work with this one!



I loved the grungy map on the back of the 4x4 elements paper but I was afraid it would be too busy if I used the whole paper.  I decided to use half and white cardstock for the other half.



By keeping half the layout white, it gave me a place to add lots of embellishments and phrase stickers. I always like to add lots of layers.



Look how pretty these flowers are!  And the little brads are always the perfect finishing touch!



I love hoe these chipboard phrases make such a big impact !

Sweet Smile

Hey everyone, I'm here today sharing a new layout for Cut To You using a Kit To You file and the Bloom Street collection from Pink Paislee/Paige Evans. This fun geometric design is perfect for boy layouts, but somehow I ended up doing a very girly layout!


I used the negative pieces of the cut file to create a background for my layout. After I added all the pieces, I stitched the layout with my sewing machine. It created a real fun effect.


With a beautiful background like this there's no need for a lot of embellishment. Just a few simple pieces and I was done!

Heart you

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Pretty Little Studio using the Shine Bright collection. I've always had a weakness for a collection that has a lot of blue. This one is so pretty with all the different shades of blue with touches of pink and green.


I used a cut file from Cut to You. I backed the hearts with pattern paper and stitched around the circle. The cut file fit perfectly in the center of this paper!


I added a small amount of embellishments because I already had a busy background. It turned out pretty sweet! I love those little tassels!

Fresh Summer Lemondade

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Echo Park using the Carta Bella Summer Market collection.  What says summer more than  fresh lemonade?  As soon as I saw this collection I knew I wanted to make a lemonade themed layout.  



I had these fun photos of my daughter in a little lemonade stand and they were perfect for this.  



I cut out a bunch of lemons from the pattern paper and used them as embellishments on my layout.  



I layered some of the stickers to create my title.



I then just added a few other stickers, some ephemera and of course some enamel dots!
