Pouting for a Puppy

I don’t usually create masculine pages, but I really love how this turned out!  I love the dark brown background and the various patterns of paper.  This layout makes me so happy.  Even though these two are cute they did not convince me that we needed yet another dog around here!

Things are a changin’

I haven’t been blogging as much lately as I have in the past, in fact it isn’t even as much as I would like.  You see, I have been making some long awaited changes in my life, which feels amazing, but it also means that I have had less time to create lately.

2015-06-29 13.02.48

These new changes are going to take a bit to get use to, especially since it means that I have to adjust to a new schedule and prioritize what I want and need to do.  I have decided to get up early (like 5 AM or earlier) so that I can get a run in on my new treadmill before it gets warm or my daughter gets up.  I want to be a healthier person so I am slowly making changes.  First up is getting exercise in every weekday.  So up I will be improving how I eat, but really it is one step at a time!

The bigger change is that I have decided to go back to school to get a Bachelor’s degree in business management.  This has been a decision that I have been wrestling with for a couple of years now, but I finally decided to start working on it.  This has been the biggest time commitment that is deeply cutting into not only my craft time but also my craft motivation.

So I will still be around when I have something new to share and I am hoping that within the next few months I will have settled in to a new routine that will help me to get some crafty time in addition to all my study time.

Capture Life–LMT

Today I have a new layout up over on the Love My Tapes blog.  This was a really fun layout to make and I just love how the tapes pop against the white background.

I don't usually have many masculine scrapbook supplies so sometimes creating pages for my husband take a little extra thinking and planning.  I grabbed a couple of scrap pieces of patterned paper, washi tape and cardstock to create this layout.

I first used my Silhouette to draw the stars on the background.  I then modified it and only cut out the inside of select stars to open up the carstock to reveal the washi tape below.

I also put three strips of the brick washi tape under the bottom of my picture and have it peeking out of each side.  I love the little bit of extra detail that it add to my page.

Tapes I used: Red & White Washi Tape, Black Skinny Chevron Washi Tape, Red Skinny Minnie Zig Zag Chevron Washi Tape, Brick Washi Tape

Supplies – Cardstock: Bazzill, Becky Higgins Project Life.  Tape: Love My Tapes.  Patterned Paper: American Crafts, Becky Higgins.  Digital Cutter, Software and Cut Files: Silhouette Cameo with Designer Edition Software and Cut File from Paper Issues.  Embellishments: Flair for Buttons, Scenic Route, Teresa Collins, Queen & Company.

So Loved–LMT

Today I have a new layout up on the Love My Tapes blog. Summer is just a few days away here and I am sure looking forward to some warm weather.  I am excited to share this layout with you today featuring some pretty floral washi tape.  I was so excited to get this roll of pink floral tape in my last order from the Love My Tapes store.  I couldn't wait to use it on my next layout.

I grabbed four rolls of washi tape, a piece of cardstock and a piece of background patterned paper.  The strips of washi tape make the perfect background for these pictures that feature my daughter last summer.

At first my die-cut title didn't stand out on my washi tape background, so after an extra layer of contrasting cardstock it now pops against the pretty washi tape.

Tapes I used: Taupe Dots Washi Tape, Pink Waves Washi Tape, Pink Floral Washi Tape, Copper Candy Stripes Washi Tape.

Supplies – Cardstock: American Crafts, Recollections.  Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye.  Tape: Love My Tapes.  Digital Cutter, Software and Cut Files: Silhouette Cameo with Designer Edition Software and cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  Embellishments: Heidi Swapp, The Paper Studio, Chic Tags, Studio Calico, My Mind’s Eye, Queen & Company.

Swimming Like a Fish–Picture This! Challenge

Today marks the middle of June and the last day of school here.  I can’t believe that the school year is already over!  Today is also the day that there is a new reveal at Picture This! Challenges.  I had a lot of fun creating this layout!  The challenge this time is: 1 Photo + Paint + Stencil.

I created this dot pattern stencil on my Silhouette and then taped it to my background page so I could use some acrylic paint to create the dots.  I love the look of the bubbles on this page!
