Keep Life Simple

Is it seriously already August?  Where has the time gone?  I am back today with a fun new challenge over at Picture This! Challenges.  So picture this… Black Background + 1 Photo + 2 Pattern Papers.  This one at first sounded really easy to me and then I was stumped with the two pattern papers.  So I added lots of embellishments and I really love how it turned out!

Eat Cotton Candy with Friends

Hello Love My Tapes fans.  I am here today with a bright and colorful layout.  I know that I have used several of these patterns of tape lately.  I love how versatile these patterns and colors are for various projects.
When I first saw the mustache washi tape I knew it would be cute on this page, but it wouldn't stand out with all the other tape.  So I put the tape on a piece of patterned paper to create my own strip to accent my layout.
I wanted to add machine stitching on top of the tape and it worked beautifully.  I wasn't sure how the needle would do going through the tape, but there was no tearing of the tape.  It adds a subtle detail and some added texture on the layout.
Supplies – Cardstock: American Crafts.  Patterned Paper: Echo Park.  Tapes: Love My Tapes.  Embellishments: Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico, Queen & Company, Eyelet Outlet, A Flair For Buttons.

SOS–Fan freaking tastic

There is a new sketch challenge up over at Scrap Our Stash. I love using sketches as a starting point for my layouts. I find it so easy to rotate the sketches and change them up to fit the pictures I have and my scrapping style. I had this vertical 4x6 picture of my hubby after he made his first batch of BBQ sauce and so I just rotated the sketch. Instead of another picture, I just moved the journaling card, which really just holds my title. I then created a fun banner with some twine and some stickers. This was such a fun sketch to work with!

Growing Up Sisters

Today I am here with the second challenge this month for Picture This! Challenges. This one took me a minute to figure out what I was going to do.  So here it is: Blue & White + Frames + 2 Photos + Flowers. 

I recently started going through a box of childhood photos that I received from my mom.  I love having these old photos to scrap and it is great to finally have more layouts about myself in all of these albums here.

Awesome Happy Seven–LMT

Good morning Love My Tapes Fans!  I can't believe that it is almost time for my daughter's birthday again.  Today I am sharing a layout from right after her last birthday.
I have been wanting to make a layout like this where I cut out various shapes and words and mix and match a bunch of different tapes.  I added some fun yellow doilies for some extra pops of color, but most of the color comes from the fun variety of washi tapes.
I added a strip of washi tape that I cut in half.  I did this because I didn't want the regular width.  This just adds a fun strip of color towards the top of the page.
I love how the tapes pop against the white background.
Tapes I used: Mint with Love Washi Tape, Lace Washi Tape, Plum Dots Washi Tape, Colorful Chevron Washi Tape, Black Triangle Washi Tape, Gold Chevron Washi Tape, Turquoise Chevron Washi Tape, Black Diamond Washi Tape.
Supplies – Cardstock: American Crafts.  Patterned Paper: Echo Park.  Tapes: Love My Tapes. Digital Cutter & Software: Silhouette Cameo with Designer Edition Software. Embellishments: Recollections, Heidi Swapp, A Flair For Buttons, Freckled Fawn, Jillibean Soup, Queen & Company.
