I really love Bashful paired with the neutral tones of the Basics Fundamentals collection. I couldn’t help choosing it for this layout of Miss M. Pink is her colour.
I used Cats Meow again for the title on this layout, and I added the negative portion of a die cut I had lying around, as well.
I’m hoping to have new goodies to showcase in the very near future, but it’s becoming painfully obvious that mail has slowed down due to the Christmas rush. I’m sitting on pins and needles over here!The goodies I’m waiting on will be available to you beginning in January. They are all out of the new seasonal expressions catalog, and they’re all stunning. If you have little boys in your life, there’s a collection for you. If you need a great gift idea, there’s a fantastic recipe album in there for you. There’s also the calendar that’s available this month. We’ve got a new travel tote and coordinating accessories, as well! I won’t have that in my order because I’m not ready to order it! I wanted my obsession- Paper- instead 😊
I hope you like it just as much as me! Stay tuned!
Yes, December. The month of anticipation, gift giving, friends and family, and waayyy too much good food. I’m finishing off my Christmas baking today. The only question now: pumpkin loaves and cherry tarts or cherry cheesecake dip?
I dove into some of my Beary Christmas paper and created this layout. I cut the title using my Cricut and embellished using retired CTMH complements. I also cut the snowflakes with my Cricut.
It’s absolutely impossible to see in the first Layout, but I used one of the A Little Bit of Pun stamps as a background element in the top layout. I used Bashful as the background colour as far as the stamping is concerned, which is why it appears invisible. It’s very light in nature. By the way, I tried zooming in on the areas I stamped, but I still couldn’t see it. It is there, I promise, and it looks really cute. I used The ‘you’re one hip square’ stamp from the stamp set.
In the bottom layout, the stamp work is way easier to see. Using the bottom portion of the ‘I like you a whole watt’ stamp, I created a border by stamping repeatedly along the top portion of the photo/journal mat. I cut a scalloped oval with my Cricut, and stamped the entire image with Pewter and Crystal Blue Ink. The oval is inked with Glacier ink using a sponge dauber.
In both layouts, I paired the Fundamentals papers with the SOTM; Basics and Whimsy are showcased in both layouts.
I have more Christmas card kits available. These ones were made using extra Beary Christmas paper. I paired this paper with October’s SOTM, Christmas Tunes and the holly came from another (retired) CTMH stamp set.
For an extra touch, I used my MS glitter glue to colour in the holly berries and my Shin Han markers to colour in the holly inside the wreath. I couldn’t help but think of my watercolored paints while I coloured it in…I may do that the next time I use Christmas Tunes!
I have a set of 5 cards available for purchase. It comes in an unassembled kit; everything you need to create them is included, and everything has been stamped, coloured and cut for you. Just put them together!
I’ll ship everywhere. I accept PayPal and cash/cheque from my local peeps.
How pretty is Pebble and Bashful together? I added some navy 8.5×11 cardstock I had in my stash (the last sheet I’d been hoarding) for an extra splash of colour. It’s very elegant, isn’t it?
The title was cut using my Cricut, a photo mat was embossed using the CTMH rose embossing folder and I finished off with pink extra thick twine and embellishments from the Stronger Together and Happy Moments (if I remember correctly!) Complements. The Cricut die cut is my absolute favourite. I typically type my titles, so I really liked that the image was already made for me. I like even more that it’s not my typical linear style, either. That small change is refreshing to me.
(And, the only reason I type them is because there’s no image for what I am looking for! I’m getting to the point where I’m going to start purchasing the ones I want.) 😊
I mixed a lot of papers to create this layout. It’s all left over paper from other projects, honestly. The title had already been cut- it’s been in my ‘left over Cricut cut outs’ box forever. The stars were meant for another project but were too big. They worked well here. The Beary Christmas Paper is left over from making samples for my next kids workshop. I’ll share that in the near future. The rest is bits and pieces that have been floating around for awhile and needed a home.
It took me quite awhile to complete this layout. I think it was nearly a week. Normally I pump them out at a much quicker pace. The design on this one kicked my butt, but it feels good to have it done. I’m proud of it!
My daughters told me this subject was a creepy one. I think that’s why I struggled. Creating a layout about something falling out of your head is harder than I anticipated! Thank goodness that’s the only picture I have of that sort!
I have one more Halloween layout to share. I try to get into the festive spirit and dress up along with my kids. Sometimes what I envision doesn’t work out (like this year), and other times, my costume remains undecided until the last minute.
I came up with the smartie pants idea as kids were walking up to my door. I inhaled a party size box of smarties and pinned them to my pants. If I’d had my glasses as this point, I’d have taped the bridge too. I didn’t get them until later, though.
This is another layout that parted ways with CTMH. Slightly. The cardstocks are both CTMH, but the patterned paper came from another company. SU, I think? I’m not certain anymore.
I typically always cut my layout titles using CTMH art philosophy (Cricut). The glasses are another Cricut cut.
