Grateful Hearts

Hey everyone, I'm here today sharing a new layout for Pretty Little Studio using the Feels Like Fall collection and a cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

It's Thanksgiving here today in Canada. The thing I will always be the most thankful for is family. I have the most amazing kids. I don't get many photos of my boy anymore since he's almost 18 and well he's a boy but my daughter is always up for a photo shoot!



I absolutely love the bright colors in this collection. Especially that blue!



I love to add a lot of layers around my photo.



And as usual I needed to add some stitching to my layout.



Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Treat Bags

Hey everyone it's Michelle here today sharing a fun and easy Halloween project for Pebbles. I don't get many trick or treaters at my house so I wanted to do something special for the few that do come. I found these cute little treat bag cut files in the Silhouette store. They were just what I was looking for!




These bags took no time at all to make. It probably took me longer to figure out what papers to use than to actually make them. I used the This is Family and Chasing Adventure collections on these.



I love that floral black and white paper for the witch's hat!




My daughter told me my pumpkin looked like an orange. lol It's still cute though!



I think this one is my favorite. I love that purple bow!



I can't wait to fill these with little treats!

I'm a guest at Jillibean

Hey everyone, I'm so excited to be a guest at Jillibean this month.  I was given the gorgeous Rainbow Roux collection to work with.  I had so much fun creating these fun and colorful layouts!

For this first layout I cut out some stars on my cameo and layered them to create a background.   I then added some stitching to the biggest ones.



For the next layout I used a cut file from Paper Issues.  Using cut files is an easy to create a fun background.



For my last layout I fussy cut all those colorful scallops and stitched them with matching thread.  I love how this one turned out!

Explore Explore

Hey everyone, I'm here today sharing a new layout for Pretty Little Studio using the Document Life collection and a cut file from Paper Issues. This photo of my son makes me laugh. I have no idea what he's doing but I though he looked so cute I had to scrap it. I love it when I look at older photos and find a gem like this!



The colors in this collection are just perfect for boy layouts. I backed the files with bright papers to create a fun juvenile look!



This sweet boy will be 18 in January. I have no idea where the time went. I finished off my layout with my favorite embellishment. These little phrase stickers are a must on almost all my layouts!

Simple Cards

Hey everyone, Michelle here today sharing some quick and easy cards for Pebbles using the This is Family collection and cut files from JustNick studio.

I always start my cards with a white base. Then I add to it. These came together pretty fast.




A cut file, greeting, stitching and a few puffy stickers is all it took to make these cards.



I love this bold blue background. Beautiful with the white cut file!



I used to be scared to make cards. The trick is to just keep them simple. No one will know these literally took 10 minutes to make!

Fall Days

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new layout for The Cut Shoppe using the Leaves are Falling cut file and the Fall Market collection from Carta Bella paper.  This cut file is so gorgeous I almost wanted to not do anything to it at all!  So I decided to keep my layout pretty simple and just back the letters with pattern paper.



Look at the gorgeous detail on this cut file.  Oh so pretty!



I tend to cut most of my files with white cardstock but sometimes when I use bright paper I just love how bold it looks!

Camping

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new layout to share for A Flair For Buttons using the Echo Park Summer Adventure collection and some awesome flair buttons.  I have a weakness for camping themed papers and embellishments.  Maybe it's just because I have a lot of camping photos, but they are always so much fun to use!



I had lots of flair buttons to choose from in my stash so it was easy to find the perfect ones to match my layout!  I settled on 3 but I could have added a whole lot more!
