A taste of Italy

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share for Pebbles using the Chasing Adventure collection. My kids have always been pretty independent. From a young age they wanted to do things for themselves. I snapped these photos of them making pizza when they were about 4 and 6. I miss those days so much!



I started off my LO with the Geo Globe cut file from The Cut Shoppe. The circle and triangles pieces reminded me of a pizza and pizza slices. I backed some random pieces with pattern paper. That woodgrain paper could not have been a better match for my photos! And of course I had to stitch the pieces too!



This collection has so many fun travel themed embellishments. Although we didn't actually go to Italy, we can eat the pizza and pretend we did right?



I then finished the LO by adding stitching to create a border and I splattered some black mist just to tie in all that black.



Thanks for stopping by!

Love and Happy Days

Hey everyone, I'm back here today with a new LO to share for Pretty Little Studio using the Ain't Life Grand collection and a cut file from JustNick Studio.

Teenage girls are so much fun. I love it when I can get some photos of my daughter and her friends. They are always willing to pose for me!



The bright colors of this collection really pop in the white flowers.




See these little phrase stickers? My favorite thing ever! I have to hold back or I would use them all!

Simple and Sweet

Hey everyone, I'm back here today with a new LO to share for The Cut Shoppe using the Fresh Squeezed cut file and the Simple & Sweet collection from Pinkfresh Studio.   I started off this LO by cutting out my cut file with a bright yellow cardstock.  All these lemons just had to be yellow!


I then backed some of those lemons with pattern paper and attempted to stitch them.  FYI, stitching circles on a sewing machine...not so easy!  LOLOL  But I kinda like the messy circles it created.


This cut file is so cute!  I might have to use it again on another LO!

Step Right Up party invitations

Hey everyone, I'm here today sharing some fun birthday party invitations for Pebbles. Did you all get a chance to see the newest Pebbles collection that was revealed last week? It's called Big Top Dreams. It includes bright, bold colors and fun, playful prints. It is perfect for scrapbooking, card making, party decor and more.



I purchased a few cut files from the silhouette store for this project. I was looking for idea when I came across this circus tent card and it was absolutely perfect for this collection. I used some bright not too busy patterns to create my tent. Then I added this Step Right Up sticker to the front. It turned out absolutely adorable.


For the inside I used the same paper and cut out the words You're invited on my Cameo. I then just added a few little stickers and it was done. Such a fun and easy project!



I also made this cute little party hat with a Silhouette cut file. I cut out some half circles and glued them to the bottom to create the scallop effect. For the "pom-pom" I cut out some paper strips and curled them with my scissors. The same was as you would curl ribbon.



Seriously though, what kid wouldn't love to receive a fun party invitation like this. Here's a tip, fill the invitation with confetti! The parents won't mind I swear! ;)

Adore You

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share for Pretty Little Studio using the With All My Heart Collection. I absolutely love this collection. I think it's one of the prettiest in the store. But with all these florals, pinks and teals how could I not love it?

I have to say my new favorite tool is my sewing machine I got for Christmas. I have no idea why I waited to long to get one. I use it on almost all my LO's and I absolutely love the effect it creates. This was such a simple LO idea but the stitching completely made it stand out!



Here's a closer look at the details



I always say how much I love these little phrase stickers but seriously, aren't they the cutest?

Cool rad awesome dude

Hey everyone, I'm back today sharing a new LO for A Flair For Buttons.   Do you ever go through your photos and find a photo you can't believe you haven't scrapped yet?  I found this super cute photo of my boy and couldn't wait to get it on a LO!

The papers and embellishments are from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Boys Rule collection.  The cut file is from Scrapbook Nerd, designed by The Cut Shoppe.




I used 2 fun flair buttons and put them in the middle of the O's in the word cool.  They fit perfectly there!

Vacay Love

Hey everyone, I'm back here today with a new LO to share for Pebbles Inc using the beautiful Chasing Adventure collection. If you have a soft spot for florals like I do you are absolutely going to love this collection. The patterns have a fun tropical vibe, perfect for vacation and summer photos!



One of my favorite things to do is create backgrounds with cut files. I used a heart strip cut file from The Cut Shoppe and placed it in a repetitive pattern. I didn't want it to be too busy so I just used 3 different pattern papers.



Another of my new favorite things to do on a LO is to add stitching. It doesn't have to be a lot to make a big effect. Sometimes I use my sewing machine and sometimes I stitch by hand. I wanted to keep it subtle on my LO so I used white on the hearts and then I framed it with some light pink.



I like to stick to just a few main colors on my LO's. The pinks and greens went so well together and just screamed out summer to me. It was the perfect color palette to compliment this sweet photo of my daughter.
