..:: adventure ::..

Hi friends! Today I have a layout for you that I made using the October Hip Kit Club Kits! My assignment this week was a sketch  and here is my take on it:

I pretty much love everything about the October kits and this lovely color that I focused on is to die for. There are papers, embellishments and Shimmerz that all work together perfectly.

I thought this was the perfect phrase for this layout of me and my daughter trying something for the first time (her, not me)! She was brave and didn't let her "head" get in the way as she was learning to skate.

I cut some stars and stitched them down with gold thread. I also added color to that giant title from Dear Lizzy (spoiler alert, you are going to see more of these)! 

I absolutely love this Shimmerz color --- Old Yeller Inklings --- it's a perfect golden, shimmery, yellow. I made a process video, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!

..:: wonderful first lesson ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {A Flair For Buttons} blog today with this layout I used using flair from the Black and Gold Flair set

Here is a close up of that lovely flair.

I am supper lucky to be on a few design teams. As a result, I was also able to use items from the Color Cast Designs September release that I got from Color Cast Designs. The wood veneer items on this page are from CCD and I love them! Here are a few close ups:

Finally I was able to use several items from Shimmerz Paints on this layout for my background.  I had so much fun making this one!

I also made a process video, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!

..:: celebrate making memories ::..

Hi friends! I'm here today with a project using a couple of the September Release sets from Color Cast Designs. These confetti leaves are completely awesome. Here is my project:

Here are a couple of close ups of those amazing leaves: 

I used one of these Currently Tags (also from the Color Cast September Release) as part of my title (I used the word "making").

Most of my other supplies are from the Paper Issues Store. My background paper and the huge "memories" word are from Dear Lizzy's most recent collection, Star Gazer.  And all of the other cards and embellishments are from the Rocktober Kit (like a swag bag on crack) from Paper Issues. I also based my layout design on this Sketchy Saturday sketch.

But don't take my word for it...I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy.

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon! October Hip Kit is here!  Watch for a new layout using the kit, by the end of the week! :-)
