Game On!

We had the most wonderful time on vacation…our first vacation in four years! We got some much needed time to sit back, relax, and enjoy creating some wonderful memories with family!!

My July kit from Shawn Davis Designs contained papers from My Minds Eye Lime Twist. The patterns and colors were perfect for some of my son’s football photos!

I sanded the edges of the larger photo for a bit of texture and masculinity. The smaller photo was layered and attached with foam dots, as well as some stars cut from the pattern paper adding dimension and texture to the layout.

Using my Cricut Expression and Life’s a Party Cartridge, I created the Star/flourish. I added Ranger Crackle Accents to the center of the flourish, adding to the masculine feel of the layout.

I layered a Spellbinders die, hand cut banner, and some stickers to create my title.

Thanks for stopping!!

Nuts About Sketches reveal #169

Time to share another sketch from Nuts About Sketches! I stuck true to the sketch, adding a few extra layers.

I created the layout using some of my favorite papers from Sassafras Las. I fussy cut flowers and leaves from the Smitten line. Using my Helmar Zapdots, I layered the flowers adding dimension around my Prima flowers.
Don't you just love the butterflies?! I cut them from my new Cheery Lynn Designs dies and spritzed them with yellow and Bubblegum Glimmer Mist. Their delicate designs add to the softness of the layout.
I'm off on vacation for the rest of the week for some much needed relaxation and family time! See you when I return!!
