Enjoy the Now

I had this layout also that posted over on the WorldWin blog on Friday.  I played around with some of my favorite things...GCD, Paper Bakery, Laina Lamb Stamps, and WorldWin!  It was fun to combine them all!

This layout uses the Colormates cardstock.  I can tell you that both the Petallics and the Colormates cut wonderfully in any die cutting machine.  

I used the Medium Coffee Brown, which is a great kraft color, for my background.  Then I used White for my center strip and to stamp on.

Supplies: Cardstock- WorldWin Colormates in Medium Coffee Brown and White; Pattern Paper-GCD Studios Nostalgia paper collection; Flair-Paper Bakery Flair (You've Been Geotagged); Stamps-Laina Lamb Designs Stamps (Right This Way); Letters-GCD Chipboard Letters, American Crafts Thickers and October Afternoon; Doily-Wilton; Twine-May Arts jute; Adhesives-Scotch and 3L Scrapbook Adhesives; Ink-Prima Chalk Ink (Tin Roof); Punch-EK Success

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file
Design ID #38761

The Colormates cardstock stamps great!  I used a chalk ink to stamp and it gave more of a distressed softer look, which fits with the layout.  And that little Paper Bakery flair geotag flair was a perfect addtion to the stamped saying!

Here you can see how cleanly the Colormates cut in my Cameo.  I just layered some pattern paper behind my openings to break it up some. I love the GCD Nostalgia collection a LOT.  So far it's my favorite!

Whew, I think that was a long post.  Or at least it took me a long time to type it up.  I get a little distracted, to say the least!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
