Soar High

Hey everyone,  today I have a new LO to share for A Flair For Buttons.  I had a lot of fun with this one.  Word flairs are my favorite.  I think I had about 10 picked out for this LO!  It was hard to choose but I finally settled on these 3.  Paper is from the More Than Words collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, and the cut file is from Paper Issues.



There really isn't a bad place to put flair on your LO.  They're so easy to use.  They look good wherever you put them.



I love this one!

Those big blue eyes

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a few LO featuring the Cross My Heart Background.  As soon as I saw this cut file I knew I wanted to use it.  I love how intricate it is!  I decided to just back some of the hearts with pattern paper just to make it more interesting.  I used the Bohemian Dreams collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.




 Look at those little squares, it would be perfect for a pixel/minecraft type project too!



And another close up because this cut file is so amazing!



Thanks for stopping by!




Awesome

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO.  I absolutely love the colors in the Wish you were here collection.  This collection is so versatile it could be used for anything.  This was a really quick LO.  I just used a cut file from Paper Issues and backed it with pattern paper.  All it needed after that was a few embellishments!



These stars are my favorite thing from this collection!



I kept the LO pretty simple because the title was so bold!

Happy



Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share using the With All My Heart collection.  Cut file is from Paper Issues.  One of my favorite things to do is to use a collection for the opposite gender as you would think it would be used.  Pink can be used for boys!  Come on try it, I dare you!

My sweet boy was only 4 years old on this photo.  How is he already 16?



I had so much fun making these little pie charts!



I love these little word stickers!

Love you always

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO!  I used the Love You Always cut file.  I cut it out in gray woodgrain paper and backed it with various patterns. This is definitely my favorite way to use cut files.  It's such a fun way to create a title for your LO!   Papers are from the More Than Words collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio 




I really love how this cut file looks with the woodgrain paper.

Love this


Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share.  Last month I was lucky enough to attend Crop and Create.  I has such a great weekend and managed to get 5 LO's done.  That's pretty good for me, I am a very slow scrapbooker!  I think this LO was my favorite of the weekend.  I used the Dream Big collection and a cut file from Paper Issues.



I'll admit the stitching took me a while but I love the effect it made.



Here's a close up of the details

Fall Adventure

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO to share.  I am truly blessed that my daughter is such a willing model for me.  When I say let's go take some photos she always says yes.  These were taken last fall.  Fall is always the best time to take photos.  It's so beautiful.

I used a simple cut file from Paper Issues and the Golden Days collection from Fancy Pants.  There is a gorgeous collection of fall themed flair buttons in the shop.  It was easy to choose some for my LO!


This is one of my favorites.  I love the woodgrain!


SO pretty!

Let the adventure begin


Hey everyone, Michelle here again today with a new layout to share.  The Wish you were here collection is not only great for travel LO's but also for boy LO's.   I love that it has bright bold colors and also softer muted colors.  This collection could truly be used for any type of project!

Here's a photo of my son showing off his first driver's licence.  In Canada it is legal to drive a scooter on the road at just 14 years old!  As scary as that is for a mom, I was so very proud of him!

I used 2 cut files on this LO.  One from Paper Issues and one from JustNick.  


I tend to always want to add a little black on my LO's.  Some simple splatters and doodling was all this one needed!

Sweet dreams



Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO to share.  My heart did flip flops the first time I saw the Dream Big collection.   It is so very pretty!  I love the soft colors, the florals, the sweet saying...it's all so me!! 

I decided to use this photo of my daughter when she was just a baby.  How in the world is my sweet baby girl already 14 years old?  I miss those baby curls!  I used a cloud cut file from JustNick to go along with the cloud die cuts in this collection.



I love adding lots of little embellishments to my LO's!

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!

Dream

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!
