Lucky for great friends

Hey everyone, I'm back today with another LO using the beautiful Heart Background 4 file.   I used the Main Squeeze paper collection from Crate Paper.
SO this photo is from last fall when a bunch of my friends and I rented a secluded cottage in the woods for a full weekend of scrapbooking.  It was pure bliss.  
This LO was pretty simple.  I backed some of the hearts with pattern paper and added some gelatos to the background just to make it more fun.  All it needed after was a few embellishments!

I love hearts!  I could use them on all my LO's!

Selfie Love

Hey everyone, it's Michelle here today with a new layout to share.  A Beautiful Day is such a gorgeous collection.  From the deep colors to the cork accents, it could truly be used for any type of LO! 

For those of you with teenage girls, I think we can all agree it come with some challenges right?  Well it also comes with some perks.  I always have plenty of photos to scrap.  Selfies, snapshots, sports shots...I have so many to choose from.  These ones are just some silly selfies but they are so much fun!

This was a pretty simple LO to make.  I just used a circle punch with some pattern paper.  I then cut them in half and hand stitched them.

Took me a while to do the stitching.  I'm a very slow stitcher!  But I really like how it turned out!

Explore eat sleep

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO to share.  I went a little out of my comfort zone with this one.  I used the Soundwave stencil to create a background for this boy LO.  I cut it out using POW glitter paper from American Crafts.  If you've never tried this paper on your silhouette you should.  It cuts like a hot knife in butter!

This is my all time favorite photo of my son. It's so him.  He always need to figure out how things work and how they are made.

Hey everyone, Michelle here with my very first post for PLS!  I cannot even express how excited I was to be asked to join this team filled with such talented ladies!  Someone needs to pinch me because I still can't believe it!
For my first project I used the With All My Heart Collection.   What first caught my eye with this collection is the beautiful colors.  Teal, pink and yellow...yes please!  I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe and backed it with some pretty floral papers.  

I got so many bits and pieces with this collection.  I just had fun with it and went totally overboard.  My goodness I love embellishing LO's!
Here's a closer look.

Sweet Heart

Hey everyone, it's love week and we're celebrating by sharing love themed projects.  There's no greater love than the love a mother feels for her kids right? I used some photos of my sweet girl for my LO.  
I used the Boho Florals cut files.  I love using florals on my LO's!  Papers are from the Simple Stories Romance collection.

Look at how pretty this cut file is!

My son, my moon and my stars

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO.  I have a son and a daughter.  I know a lot of you will relate when I say there is so much more scrapbooking products for girls than boys out there.  So much of what I buy is pink, girly and flowery.  Well here's the good news, take a peek at the AFFB store and you will see so many flair sets that are perfect for those boy LO's!  I used the Pink Paislee/Paige Taylor Evans Turn the Page collection.

Here's a peek at that cute flair!

Hey everyone, Michelle G here today with a new LO.  As I was browsing the store I can upon this Quilted Circle Background cut file.  It was so pretty I just had to use it.  I had planned on backing the spaces with pattern paper but after I saw it cut I just had to leave it untouched.  It's such a beautiful cut file!

 Here's a peek up close.  So many possibilities with this file!
