Moments Captured-Just Jaimee Hybrid Layout

So, I am not sure what happened over at Shimelle, but if the post goes live I will let you know!  Sorry about that, I am waiting to hear back.

I decided to jump into the Just Jaimee Storyteller challenge over at The Lilypad this month.  The challenge was a large photo with pops of color using the May Storyteller collection.  Well I have been wanting to scrap a large photo for awhile and what a fun idea!  Here is my take on the challenge

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Digital Elements-Just Jaimee May Storyteller; Ribbon-Unknown; Stapler-Tiny Attache; Adhesive-Therm O Web; Pen-Signo

Baby Sheldon!!!!  I just put the elements I wanted into my Silhouette software, traced them.  Then printed and cut!  Well and glued!!!  LOL


It's fun to add little touches to the digital elements once they are printed out.  I added white dots on random letters for the title. I also folded and bent some of the edges of the papers, just for fun.


Here is a shot of my page of elements after I printed, but before I cut.  The main thing is once you print, DO NOT move anything on your screen.  The cutter bases the cutting lines on the registration marks, so if you move an element on your screen, well, it will not be cut right!  And don't place elements in the area where the registration marks are on the screen.  It will mess up how the marks are read and you will end up with cut lines everywhere, but where you want them!  I will go into more details if you want.  Let me know!  

That's all from me today, but I am up over on the Scrapping with Liz blog sharing how I resized a template to work with a paper layout.  You can find my post HERE.

& Awesome He Took My Crate-Jillibean Soup/The Cut Shoppe

Hope everyone has recovered from InterNational Scrapbooking Weekend!  LOL  Me, well I didn't get to play as much as I would have liked, but it's ok, because I was doing some other fun stuff!  

Sharing a layout that was up on the Cut Shoppe blog last Friday using the And Love cut file.   And you know I love a good and funny title.  Mix a funny title and this cut file and I come up with the layout below!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Bow, Tags, Stickers-Jillibean Soup; Enamel Dots-My Mind's Eye; Letters-American Crafts, Jillibean Soup; Flair Button-A Flair for Buttons; Adhesive-Therm O Web

Here is a look at the "And Love" file that I used

I added a flair button and some die cuts that were in the Jillibean Soup collection to the cut file and also created an offset for the file.


And those adorable felt bows in this collection, well I had to use one.  And, of course, a doily!  Who could forget a doily!


Well, that's all from me today for this Monday.  Which, btw, is a Missouri holiday...former President Harry Truman's birthday!  Ok, you have had your history lesson for the day!

Toy Lover-Scrapping With Liz Template and Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop.

After a month break, we are back with the Scrapping Our Stash blog hop. This is a hop to encourage us to use that stash that gets put to the back when the new stuff comes in!  AND as a bonus I used a Scrapping With Liz template as the inspiration for my layout!

You should have arrived from Juliana's blog HERE.  If you missed it, head over there!


Supplies: Gossamer Blue Kit, Therm O Web Adhesives, American Crafts Thickers, Scrapping with Liz Template Recyclables 41

Here is a look at the template set I used for the layout. I am sure you can see which one I used!  This is great set of multiple templates that work with your die cutting machine if you can trace PNG files!

You can find them in The Lilypad store HERE.

Let's take a look at some close ups. I used a ton of enamel dots on this, mainly because I wanted something to accent the circles!


And then the title.  I had a hard time coming up with one and almost didn't do it!  But the lure of going around the circle edge was too strong and I couldn't resist!  And I can always change it later if I want!


So that's all I have for inspiration today, but there are some other ladies that have more for you!  You can follow on to Majken's blog HERE.  And the entire list is below, if you want to open up a few tabs all at once!


Thanks for coming by and hopping with us today!!  Have a great weekend!

Toy Season-Fancy Pants Design/The Cut Shoppe

Hey there!  This project was up on The Cut Shoppe blog last week.  It is another project that did not start out in my head like it finally turned out here!!

I used the new Fancy Pants Atwell collection, which has a bold artsy theme to it. I went pretty light on embellishing for that reason and I just didn't feel like the layout called for a lot of stuff on it.

This layout uses the Spinwheels cut file and you can find it in the shop HERE. 

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Puffy Stickers-Fancy Pants; Flair-A Flair for Buttons; Twine-May Arts; Tag-Maya Road; Geotags-KI Memories; Sequins-WeRMemory Keepers; Adhesive-Therm O Web; Digital Paper-Just Jaime; Wood Veneer-Studio Calico; Silhouette Cameo

I backed some of the cut outs with fun papers, but then I also used my left overs from my cut to accent. I did use foam adhesive to pop these black and white pieces up for a little dimension.

I used a digital paper from Just Jaimee as the background for my journaling.  I am finding out there are lots of ways to journal using your Silhouette and I am hoping to share those with you in some step out tutorials.

And then in some of the centers, I just stacked a couple of sequins together and bam, sparkle but not too much!

Alright, well that wraps up this blog post for a Monday!!!  Hope it's a good one too you, I am hoping it is to me!!!

Hybrid Notebooks with DecoFoil

So, as soon as I finished these for ThermOWeb, I told myself that I would be making more of these!  So fun, so quick and the options and varieties are endless!  These were up on the ThermOWeb blog Monday and you can see steps over there!  The post is HERE.

Supplies: Digital Scrapbooking Kit-Just Jaimee, Paislee Press; DecoFoil-ThermOWeb; Stapler; Copy Paper; Cardstock-Epson; Laser Printer; Laminator

These are so quick and easy to do.  It took me longer to figure out what papers and sayings I wanted to use than it did to make them!

I really like the aqua DecoFoil with the pop of the yellow chevron paper here!


So head over to the ThermOWeb blog and check out all the deets!  Have a Happy Humpday Wednesday!

Like a Boss-Maya Road and Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Friday's seem to be busy posting days on blogs for me!  This card was up over on the Maya Road blog last Friday.  You can find the details about the supplies I used HERE.  AND did you know that you can also shop on the Maya Road website?!  You can do that HERE. Now if you have a local store, please support them.  You can touch, feel and drool (well not on the products!) in person and it's so much more satisfying.  If you don't have a local store, there are online stores that can use your support also.  But if you are having trouble finding what you want in Maya Road products, you can head to the site and get them there!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Enamel Stars, Die Cuts-Cocoa Vanilla Studio; Cardstock-American Crafts; Arrow Clip, Wooden Token, Journaling Note Card, Ribbon-Maya Road; Adhesive-Therm O Web

See some new goodies??  Like wood and a new journaling note card die?!!  LOVE it!

And I struggled with how to use this arrow, but knew I wanted to get it on there.  A staple with my mini stapler did the trick!  And ties it in with the stapled ribbon below!

And the Totally Rad collection for Cocoa Vanilla Studio rocks!!  I love orange and I have actually been hoarding that paper!!  

Ok, back to the real world of accounting and shuffling paper, but not the fun kind!  Have a great day!
