Beautifully Sweet (Jenni Bowlin Studios)

Today there is a brand new paper kit available from Jenni Bowlin Studios over at Snap Click Supply Co. This paper collection is called Bright Travel and is made up of pink and teal papers.

As soon as I saw these papers I knew that I really wanted to use them!  I teamed them up with some embellishments from various other kits to create this layout about my daughter.

I Heart Fall (Jenni Bowlin Studios)

I know, I know…it is spring, but I am scrapping these pictures from last fall.  Today there is a fabulous new digital product release from Jenni Bowlin Studios called Stenciled Banners and Bubbles.  I hope you will check out the NEW digital home for JBS called Snap Click Supply Co.
For this layout I used several digital kits but I have to say I loved how it all came together!

I used the new kit two different ways.  In PSE I created a slightly transparent version that of the “Today” banner and had it outlined as well and placed it on my patterned paper before printing it out.  The second way was to cut three different banners out of frosted glass vinyl.  I wanted something that would be light and not totally solid in color.

Fun Happy Today

I don’t know about you, but my collection of 6x6 pads of paper has been steadily growing.  I have all these goals of using them, and then I just don’t.  So for this layout I love that I was able to create my background by combining 4 sheets of 6x6 paper.  I then added some fun embellishments and a cool title cut on my Silhouette (using two more sheets of 6x6 paper).  Now I just need to create a ton more pages like this to create a dent in my paper stash.

It’s Your Day

These pictures have been sitting here waiting for me to scrap them for a while now, but I haven’t been inspired to use them.  Finally I got an idea and went with it.  I have to say I really enjoyed putting this page together.

Happy Day

I love these chalkboard papers that have been the trend lately, but sometimes where there is already writing and designs on the page I find them hard to use.  When I got ready to make this page I figured out a way to make it work and I have to say that I just LOVE the results!

Happy Day

beYOUtiful (Mye De Leon)

I can’t believe that another month has already passed.  This is an exciting time for Mye De Leon.  There is another fabulous HUGE monthly kit that is available to her newsletter subscribers for a totally amazing price. 

When I first saw this kit, I might have squealed with delight…because all of these are my happy colors lately.  I was so excited to use these.  I also wanted to try something a little different.  I love all of Mye’s journaling cards, so I decided to create a Project Life style page but I added embellishments that are outside the normal pocket sizes.

Life is Beautiful

Here is another new digital layout.  I created this layout for my Mother-in-Law to go with a gift I gave her at Christmas.  So I wanted to create a new layout for her using some pictures from their most recent trip.

Life is Beautiful

I used three different Mye De Leon products: Brave, Bits of Life and Cluster It Vol. 4 Templates.
