New Kitty Layout

Hello everyone, I have a fun layout to share with you today! We recently rescued a kitten, he is sweet and very playful. Since I think it is important to document just about everything, I thought he needed a scrapbook page. I started this layout with a stencil and a gold spray, then I painted on glue and chose bright and fun colors of glitter to add to the page. I found a piece of paper that had small words all over it, I punched out the small words with the Epiphany Crafts Oval 25 tool and added bubble caps to them. I placed a couple of the ovals on top of stars to make them stand out. They really pop off of the page!

Be sure to stop by their blog! :) 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you to create something today!

Fall Banner for Epiphany Crafts

Hello everyone!
 It is finally fall and I must say fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I especially love the colors of the leaves when they change. Since I love fall so much I decided to make a fall banner. I found a few sheets of fall colored paper and fall colored flowers that I wanted to use. I cut out large pennant shapes on my Silhouette Cameo, but you could do it by hand if you don’t have a machine, I also cut out the letters that are on the pennants. I added fall colored flowers in clusters to each pennant, I also included wood veneer and epoxy shapes. The Epiphany Crafts Round 25 tool and the Epiphany Crafts Heart 25 tool went so well with the clusters of flowers and they add extra interest.

Be sure to stop by the Epiphany Crafts blog! 

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope that I have inspired you to create a fun banner!

Happy Memories

Hello everyone! I created these two layouts for Epiphany Crafts. I was so excited to find out that I was a part of their Guest Design Team! :) I just love all of their products, the tools are amazing!! 
My husband and I went to Disney World recently and that means lots of pictures to scrapbook!
I have two layouts to share with you today. On the first layout I used the Shape Studio Pennant 25 tool. I love how you can create the perfect banner to match any project. I punched out four of the pennants and put them under my photo leaving some longer than others. I used pop dots to adhere my photo down to raise the photo off the background so that the pennants would slide under the photo easily.

For the second layout I used the Shape Studio Chevron tool to make arrows. I wanted to make sure everyone knew my title is “Happy Memories”, because every time we leave Disney World there is so many Happy Memories.

You can hop on over to the Epiphany Crafts blog to see all the other talented Designers and Guest Designers.

I hope you enjoyed my layouts! Thanks for stopping by!!! :)

Custom T-Shirts!!

Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing well! :) 
With our up coming trip to Disney World I decide to create a few custom t-shirts. I love the way they turned out so I thought I would share with all of you how I created them. I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out the designs and I also used the Silhouette Studio program to create my designs. 

You want to get your design ready in Silhouette Studio. You want to be sure to mirror your design, so when you put it on your shirt you will be able to read it. 

Once you are happy with your design and you are ready to cut make sure you choose what material you are using in the Silhouette Studio. Also you want to make sure that your blade setting is the same on the machine as it says on the program. 

I tested my design on paper before I cut the actual heat transfer material. By doing this I made sure my design was the right size for my shirt without waisting my heat transfer material (which is more expensive than paper). 

After you finish cutting the heat transfer material out it is time to start weeding out the material so you can see your design. 

Now that you have finished weeding, it is time to start ironing! Place your design where you would like it on your shirt and then place a cotton cloth over top of it. Start ironing over your design, follow the directions on your heat transfer packaging, they vary in how long it takes to bond it to the shirt. I have found it depends on the fabric your shirt is made out of also. You can start peeling up the plastic your design is attached to and see if it's sticking to the shirt, if not just iron it again.

I hope you love the way your shirts turn out if you decide to make them too! 

Here is a couple of other designs I created also. :)

Sister Love

On this layout I used products I most recently bought. I love using new products. :) Metallic Gelatos were used to create the background, and Chalk Studio embellishments from My Minds Eye were used all around the page. Gold thickers were used for the title (they are my new favorite). I used a gold polka dot washi tape behind the pictures. This layout is definitely one of my favorites now. Be sure to check out the video below! :) Thanks for stopping by!!

The Grand Canyon

Hey everyone! I hope you are doing well. 
 For this layout I started with a background paper from Heidi Swapp's new collection Hello Today. Then I added white paint to the background. Papers from Allison Kreft were used for layering. The die cuts are from DCWV Vintage Collector ephemera pack. I found it at Michael's craft store and I am in love, I might have to get another pack! I used black thickers for the title. :) Let me know if you have any questions.

Fun Day

With all the colors and layers on this layout I think it definitely shows that we did have a fun day! I am so happy with the way it turned out. 

I used a lot of embellishments on this layout. Heidi Swapp chipboard stickers, and clear pop pieces, Studio Calico wood veneers, tags, star sequins, enamel dots, and washi tape.  

The little feather is a mist able from Studio Calico. I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp color shine in Navy. 

The green pocket is K&Company smash book pocket. 

The stamps are from Heidi Swapp and I used her new ink pads! I love her new ink pads that you can find at Michael's Craft Store. 

Thank you for stopping by!! 
I hope you enjoy the process video below! :)

Christmas Eve

This is one of my favorite pictures from Christmas. I just love the party popper crowns we were wearing! So I knew I just had to do something with this picture! :) 

A mix of papers made it on this layout. Papers from Heidi Swapp, Recollections, & Allison Kerft. The news paper print is by Tim Holtz. 

The word "today" is a silhouette cut. 

I painted the silhouette cut with pink paint so it would match the background. 

I used black sparkly Thickers for the year. :) I love Thickers! I used enamel dots, sequins, and can you believe I only used one wood veneer on this layout! 

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you enjoy the video! :)

Christmas Layout

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a good Christmas!!
 I created this layout of me and my husband in front of our Christmas tree. I love how colorful this layout is. 
I used mostly scrap papers, so I am not sure what collections they are all from. I just loved the way they all looked together. :)

I used wood veneer arrows to focus on the picture.  

The word "smile" was cut from my new silhouette cameo. My husband gave me one for Christmas! I was so excited!! :) 

These star sequins are so cute, I just had to add them to my page! 

Enamel dots, are becoming one of my favorite embellishments. 

I used Tim Holtz tissue wrap behind all the patterned papers, I love the look it gives. 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the video!! :)
