Stunning & Gorgeous

Today I am going to share another layout that I made for Love My Tapes.  This time I am mixing lots of different pieces of patterned paper with washi tape.

The purple at the top and the bottom of the page is three strips of Purple Floral washi tape.  I then added a row of the Turquoise Chevron washi.  The colors looked amazing with my photographs and matched some patterned paper I had laying around.

Since I love adding thinner washi to my layouts, I just had to add a couple of strips of this fun Movie Film Washi.

I created my title using my Silhouette Cameo and some cardstock that helps it stand out against the purple floral washi tape.

Supplies – Cardstock: American Crafts.  Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye.  Washi: Love My Tapes.  Digital Cutter & Software: Silhouette Cameo with Designer Edition Software.  Sketch: Scrapbook Generation.

Glimpses of Home

After we bought our first home last year I started taking a bunch of instagram pictures.  I loved snapping pictures around the new place.  Of course, I also love scrapping those cute square pictures.  So I grabbed a few different pictures to create this layout.

Wonderful Fun with Uncle Steve

Steve hasn’t been able to spend much time with the girls, but on this trip they sure loved hanging out with their uncle.  They got lots of yummy things to eat and they sure got messy.

Always Laugh Together–Love My Tapes

Today to share a new layout I created with some washi from Love My Tapes.  This time I wanted to use washi as an accent instead of the majority of the patterns on my page.  Washi tape is perfect to just add little pops of extra color to any project.  

I loved this red paper with the little white dots and wanted to add some extra red accents, so I just grabbed this roll of Red Triange Washi tape.  

Since these goofy pictures remind me of a photo booth, I just had to add a couple of strips of this fun Movie Film Washi.

I also can not get enough gold lately, so I added a strip of the Metallic Gold Triangle Washi.

I had little bits of these patterned paper pieces laying around from another project, so I thought they would be perfect here too.  I grabbed the sheet of cardstock and this fun heart design from the Silhouette store and got started.  I used the gold pen to have the Silhouette sketch my design.  I then used Heidi Swapp spray inks to color the flowers and butterflies that make up the heart.  I then layered the paper and pictures added some bling, flowers, hearts and washi tape to complete this layout.

Happy Travels – Picture This! Challenge

There is a new challenge over at Picture This! Challenges today!  I had a lot of fun creating this layout.  The challenge this time is to create a layout with 3 photos + travel.  It seemed easy enough, except the fact that I don’t usually travel that much.  Luckily I hadn’t scrapped many photos from my quick trip to California last summer.

Puppy Love at Love My Tapes

Hello everyone!  Today I am here to share this fun layout I made for Love My Tapes featuring my daughter and my mom's two new puppies.  I was crazy enough to puppy sit for a few days, but luckily I got some cute pictures out of it.

I wanted to have lots of paw prints on my layouts, because with four dogs (I have two dogs too) there were paw prints everywhere!!  I grabbed a piece of cardstock and cut it out on my Silhouette.  I then traced the inside of each paw print because I wanted to line the paper behind the prints and I also wanted to create a pattern, so I needed to know exactly where to put the tape.

I then grabbed two more tapes and created a pattened background in the center of the page.  Then I just added my photos and some embellishments and I was done!

Below you can see a close up of the paw prints.  I love the extra dimension of the tape being behind the main piece of cardstock.  I used the Red Heart Washi and the Metallic Gold Chevron Washi.

For the background I then added the Gold Metallic Triangle Washi and the Love Washi Tape.

Supplies – Cardstock: American Crafts.  Washi Tape: Love My Tapes.  Digital Cutter & Software: Silhouette Cameo with Designer Edition Software.  Embellishments: Teresa Collins, Stash, Chic Tags, My Mind’s Eye, Echo Park, Fancy Pants Designs, Queen & Company.

Awesome Adventure

I love creating layouts with my instagram photos and for this layout I was able to use four of the photos that I took during one of my daughter’s field trips last school year.  Another thing that I like doing is creating layouts using a grid pattern, like I did here.  This layout just makes me so happy!!

Life is Better at the Beach - Picture This Challenges

This is one of my happy pictures!  I took it last summer when I was visiting Santa Cruz, California.  I would be so happy just sitting on that bench and watching the ocean.

I created this layout for the design team call at Picture This! Challenges.  The challenge was to create a layout with 1 photo + corners + splatters.  I am excited to announce that I am sharing this layout again today, because this is the new challenge over at Picture This! Challenges and it the first one that I get to share as part of their design team!  I hope that you will check out their challenges and hopefully play along with them!
