Backyard Fun Layout

So last night we did a layout featuring one of my favorite Designers, Treasurebox Designs by Dina, and I love her files…I wanted to have this page look like it was a continuous layout so I made the file a tad bit larger, did the first page, and I had it overlap a tad, and then I snipped it off and added it to my second page. This is a fun technique as it causes your eye to follow what is happening on the page. As always, I used my Cricut, Make the Cut, my dimensionals (pop dots), white gel pen, black fine tip marker, Colorbox chalks, a tear ruler,we also used some new Diva Pearl Pens, and oh I can’t forget, my awesome 12x12 HP printer, I used this to print my cloud background page. Paper used was from I believe a DCW book School Days…love it! Mats are 4x4 and 4x6. I hope you enjoy todays layout.

Love that SMILE layout

So I have a new group that started coming on their lunch hour, they give up eating to come SCRAP….love it. We had a good time…I hope it wasn’t too stressful for you, trying to get done in an hour. Hopefully, we can have the layouts uploaded prior to class so you can precut your pieces and just add your add-ons. It may have only taken them and hour to get their page nearly finished, but it took me 3 1/2 hours to create the layout…I couldn’t get it the way I wanted it, the way I visioned it in my head, LOL. So Enjoy!




Buttons were made with Martha Stewart punch and they have dimensionals under them to add a little dimension to the layout.

So I think my girls are beautiful and love them so very much. The blonde is our neighbor and part of out family also. 

Feel free to leave comments and let us know what other kind of layouts and or techniques you’d like to see.

I’m the Big Brother, or I’m the Big Sister Layout

A couple of weeks ago we did an adorable layout entitled I’m the Little Brother/Sister and it was just so darn cute. After we finished the class, those who attended had mentioned other siblings and so we decided to do another layout entitled the Big Brother/Sister. Due to different circumstances, some of the ladies were unable to attend and so we had put off holding the class until last night. During the class I introduced another new product to the girls. ( I have been called the Queen Enabler) I wear the crown well…so we used the IROCK and Rhinestones! It was a lot of fun. I created a small adornment in Make the Cut using the rhinestone feature, set the size of my rhinestones and cut it out with my Cricut. I think it came out so adorable. One of the ladies opted to put her rhinestones across the center of her page.

I wish I had my pictures on my layout so you could see just how cute this page turned out, and also where I’m putting my journaling. So Enjoy!

Recipe for the Layout…

3  5x7 CS in Pink for Girl or blue for boy

3  3x5 PP in choice of color

1  3x5 CS in the pink or blue

My faces came out a little funny, I didn’t have my glasses…oh well I still like the page…hope you do too. Love reading all your comments.

Rain Rain Go Away Layout

Well it seems that no matter where you live in the US, there is a lot of RAIN. So last week our layout was to reflect just that, it’s time for it to GO AWAY! I hope you enjoy this layout. We had a small group, but it was a lot of fun putting this layout together.  Hope you Enjoy!


“Eggstra Day” Easter Layout

What a fun layout to make, bright colors and an adorable little bunny and chick…this was such a cute layout, it just makes me smile. I guess cause I’m thinking about the pictures I plan to put on them…My adult son and his fiance! Yes, we had an Easter Egg Hunt for them following our church service, where we hid eggs in only our livingroom and hallway. Each egg was valued at a certain amount…example, pink eggs were .25, green eggs .50, and purple eggs $1.00, now here’s where the problem begins, I didn’t do the math when we hid them. LOL, so they made out really good….They made $35 hunting for Easter eggs, plus they got the chocolate! I grabbed my camera and took pictures of them on the hunt. Enjoy!
