Picture Perfect with Gossamer Blue (February) and 3 Birds Design News!

Well, thought I would share another February layout with my Gossamer Blue kits.  One day I will get caught up on sharing all of them I have been holding!  

Yes, sometimes the dogs do sleep like this…or most of the time.  Jetson loves to sleep on pillows on top of your head.  Can be interesting when he is dreaming!  

This is an out of my usual "ton of paper" layouts, but I do love it.  I focused more on clustering embellishments here and there and less on the layers.
Gossamer Blue February Kits

Supplies:  Pattern Paper-Elle's Studio-Love You Much (*background), Fancy Pants-Beloved (*pink multi chevrons), Pebbles-Yours Truly-Love (*text paper),  Crate Paper-Love Notes (*red grey flowers); Tags-Elle's Studio (*heart tag/picture perfect/so good together), Crate Paper (mine); Flair-Crate Paper Love Notes; Chipboard Heart-Fancy Pants Beloved; Stickers-Crate Paper Love Notes

Not in kit: Doily-Wilton; Enamel dots-My Mind's Eye (Lost and Found); Owl-unknown; Wood Veneer Clouds-Paper Bakery; Twine-May Arts; 

Just an embellishment cluster.  I mixed a lot of the tags together.  The "picture perfect" was cut down from a frame shape.

And yes, the owl really doesn't go with anything, but he matched and I liked him, so he got put there!  Just think of night owls!  LOL

Over on the 3 Birds Design's Studio blog, we are celebrating National Scrapbook Day all week long!  There are projects by all of us, plus a new release to be revealed.  And….there might even be a giveaway!  Head over to the blog HERE to check it out each day.

Have a great Wednesday.  Do you know what day it is??  HUMP DAY!!!  Woot!!

Grandpa & The Girls-Gossamer Blue February Kits

So, so, SO far behind in sharing my layouts that are with my Gossamer Blue kits!  This layout is from February's kit.

I loved this picture of the girls and Grandpa.  I usually don't color match my photos to the papers I use, but this one just kind of worked out that way.

Elephant Baby Card with Imaginisce

Popping in late here Saturday night, with a fun little baby card using Imaginisce goodies from the My Baby collection (boy).

I spotted this cute cut file in the Silhouette store and just had to make this baby boy card.  I don't know of anyone having a baby boy anytime soon, so it will go into the "pile" of unused cards.  Yes, I have a pile and occasionally I pull them out and use them!


Supplies: Pattern Paper-Imaginisce (My Baby); Cardstock-American Crafts; Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Enamel Dot-Prima

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file

Design ID#54165

This baby elephant just sits on top of the card front.  I added some 3D Foam Squares to pop him up.  

I also popped up the ears, I just thought they were too cute not to! And don't you love the hearts as the snout and tail?!

Ok, just a quick post from me tonight.  I am on a roll getting some assignments done and out of the way.  I love to be able to work ahead!  Have a great Sunday!

All Ears with Imaginisce

Hope you had a great weekend!  Look what showed up here…Corgis in Bunny Ears!  Hee hee, well actually last year, but I had to scrap them for an Easter project!

This was up on the Imaginisce blog Friday.  When I got the Easter assignment I pretty much knew it would be these pictures and the Welcome Spring collection!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Die Cuts-Imaginisce (Welcome Spring); Cardstock-American Crafts; Pen-Sharpie; Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Punch-EK Success

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut files:
All Ears
Design ID# 39473
3 Easter Eggs
Design ID# 26236
3 Easter Eggs
Design ID# 26235

I used some banners from the 6x6 mini pad of paper to tuck under the butterfly.

And of course a bunny had to sit by the eggs!  

That's all for Monday!  Don't eat too much left over Easter candy.  I know I will be trying to stay out of it for sure!  Chocolate has been a weakness for me a LOT lately!

AdornIt Guest Design, Take Two

Today is "take two" on the blog for projects with AdornIt.  Don't faint, I did a two page layout!  AND I did it WITHOUT A SKETCH and it only took me about an 1.5 hours!  Trust me, I was so happy I could have screamed.  And just a little proud of myself, because I usually always will use a sketch for a two page layout!

I have had these pictures printed for about TWO years!  This was when Sheldon first came to be here and I know I printed them pretty quickly after I took them!  These papers are from the "Timerland Critters" collection and I think this was one of my favorites.  I cannot decide if I love the fox or squirrel more!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Stickers, Tags, Die Cuts-AdornIt (Timberland Critters); Pen-Sharpie; Adhesive-ThermOWeb

Loved this tag as my title.  I also dressed up the 6x6 piece of paper I place it on, with one of the clear stickers in the collection.

Epp, SQUIRREL!!  So dang cute!

I took these pictures of Lauren at Thanksgiving.  Don't you just love that smile?!  I used the Crazy for Daisies collection for this.  The bright colors worked perfect with the pictures.

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file:

I have used this cut file before, but the flowers were similar and I just wanted to accent the Silhouette die cut with the collection ones.  They worked perfectly together.

I just trimmed down a tag here!

Hope everyone has a good Easter that celebrates it!  I will be staying home with the puppers this weekend, since Higgins isn't quite into travel mode yet.  Have a great weekend!

A Little Photo Shoot Layout with 3 Birds Designs

Welcome to Thursday here on the blog!  Anyone glad it's Friday tomorrow?!!  I know I am.  It's been a crazy week and I am looking forward to the weekend.  And of course a little scrapping thrown in also!

Well, as you probably guessed by my title, I have a 3 Birds Design project for you, which means I am also up over on the 3 Birds Studio Blog today!  I used basically the same photo on both of my projects, but the projects are totally different.  I did an altered clipboard for my other project and you can find it HERE.

I am not usually one to use a lot of shapes in my layouts.  I am talking hexagons, circles, triangles, etc.  But I just "felt" like doing something different and stepping out of my comfort zone for this layout.  I think it may have been the bold black and white striped paper!

I used my Cameo to cut out a couple of different sized triangles out of the pattern papers I chose.  Then I just started layering.
Today & Forever_2014-4-17-KHunt-2

I layered a couple of the chipboard pieces here.  The bronze color on the lettering brought out the orange strip behind the photo.  I also changed my photo to black and white for a little something different.  
Today & Forever_2014-4-17-KHunt-3

Thanks for stopping by the little ole blog today!  I will have the last of my Adornit projects for you.  Anddddd…there might just be a double page layout in them!!!  Happy Thursday!

AdornIt Guest Design Projects, Take One

Sharing a couple of projects that I did for AdornIt over on their blog last week.  They have some really fun collections and I have some they sent that I didn't use, so you will be seeing more AdornIt on here, I am sure!

This first layout is with the Rainy Days & Sunshine collection.  I thought it was perfect for these pictures from our photo shoot, because as you can see, it was a little wet!  We weren't even sure we were going to get to have it, but everything worked out.  It's hard to believe that it has almost been a year since these were taken!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Stickers, Tags -AdornIt (Rainy Days and Sunshine); Pen-Sharpie; Doily-Wilton; Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Photos taken by April Turner of UTurn Studios

These little border strips were perfect to make into banners.

And to tie in the banner theme, I used a journaling card from the collection to place my title on!  

Next up, I altered a box with some leftovers I had from a layout (you will see that in a few days!).  This was a box from Valentine's day that I had hung onto, just in case I wanted to make something with it!

Here is the inside.  I thought the flower card was sweet and I just trimmed it to fit inside the box as a little surprise.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope there is something FUN on your agenda today.  I will just have to see what kind of trouble I can get into I think!

Some ThermOWeb Pinterest Inspiration

Well, this post was sitting in the "queue"!  It was in draft mode and didn't post.  My bad for not scheduling it.

We had a Pinterest challenge over at ThermOWeb blog and this was the layout I came up with.  If you want to see the process of how I did it, my original posting is located HERE.  

These were just some random pictures I had taken of Higgins on the couch.  Not the best, but I was able to clean them up enough in Lightroom to use them.  I love the look on his face!  We will be glad when he gets back to himself after this ACL tear.  

Supplies:  Pattern Paper, Chipboard & Tags-Heidi Swapp (Hello Today); Pen-Sharpie; Adhesives-ThermOWeb (Zots, 3D Foam Squares, Mini Sticky Dot Runner)

Here is where I came up with the idea for the layout.  This is one of my pins on my Color Palette board

Now you see where I got the circles from!! 

The hexagons were on a 3x4 card and I just trimmed them out.  I wanted to use the list card and not the card that came with the hexagons.  Easy fix!

Tomorrow I will be sharing a project that I did for AdornIt last week!  Have a wonderful Monday.  Here is hoping mine goes well.  Payroll seminar for work!  Fun!

Umbrella Fun with 3 Bird's Studio!

It is an umbrella kind of day here on the blog!  I am sharing a card that I made for 3 Birds with the Graceful Season collection.

They say April showers bring May flowers, but since we haven't had a lot of those yet, I did a card with an umbrella theme.  And I am up over on the 3 Birds Studio blog with a layout full of umbrellas!  You can find that posting HERE. 

Showers Card_2014-4-17_KHunt-1

Supplies:  Pattern & Foil Paper, Chipboard-3 Birds Design (Graceful Season); Cardbase-3 Birds Design Quilling Cardmaking Kit (Graceful Season); Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Twine-May Arts

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file:
4 Umbrellas
Design ID #26837

If you look closely, you can see the purple foil paper shimmer.  These foil papers are quite sturdy and cut well!
Showers Card_2014-4-17_KHunt-2

I just popped up the farm around the window and then layered my umbrella and chipboard on top of it. The umbrella's under layer is the same foil as the words are cut out of.

I am super excited to get the day started.  I am taking Ella to do pet therapy at one of our senior centers and then she gets to go to my office for a visit to meet everyone!  Have a great weekend!

You Make Me Happy with Gossamer Blue

I am so far behind on sharing my Gossamer Blue layouts.  The "blogging" break did not help that at all!   This layout is one that I did with my December kit, I think?!  I would look it up for sure, but I am blogging from the couch and just too darn lazy to go get the external hard drive to look it up!

I loved this paper that was in the kit and wanted to use it as a focal point of my layout.  I kept everything to a minimum, which is unusual for me!

Supplies-I am just not going to list them this time. Everything is pretty much from the kit, except the following:  Twine, Adhesive, Ribbon, Doily.

I thought the little "hi" flair was cute and wanted to use it with the picture.  Looks like Sheldon has just come up to say "hi" to Higgins!

Used a Uniball Signo pen in white to journal with.  I have got to get me a couple more of those pens!

And in other news, I was asked to guest design for AdornIt!  My posts will be up over on their blog all this week.  They have such cute papers and I had a lot of fun creating with them.  You can find their blog HERE.

Wee Little One(s) with Imaginisce My Baby Collection

It's the My Baby release party this week on the Imaginisce blog and I had a layout up over there yesterday.  I know, BABY layout?!  From me?!  Yes, I do know people that have babies and not just people that have dogs!

This is an adorable set of twins that you have seen here on the blog before.  These are some of the only baby pictures they have, since they were adopted.  I wanted to combine them on the page, but for each to have a "separate" area.  Since there are color combos for both boy and girl, it worked perfectly!

Supplies:  Pattern Paper, Die Cuts-Imaginisce (My Baby, Boy and Girl); Cardstock-American Crafts; Adhesive-Therm O Web

Emma's little cute face!  I cut around the sheep, so that I could tuck the picture into it.

There are three of each die cut in the packages, so that worked out great for my title!

Well, that's all from me today!  Thanks for stopping by my little place on the internet!

Therm O Web and Elle's Studio Team Up

It's a two-fer today here on the blog!  Therm O Web and Elle's Studio have a product swap going on.  I had been eyeing the Everyday Moments collection, so I was super excited when I got it in the swap!

Here is the first of my layouts.  Emma's mom had texted me this picture of Emma and I had to scrap that hair!

This is a Glitter Dust Frame from Therm O Web that debut at CHA this past winter.  I just cut it in half,  to accent the "life documented" tag.

Since I used the speech bubble paper, I thought the speech bubble journaling tag was a perfect fit.

Next up is a picture that I have had printed for awhile and just haven't had the mojo to scrap it!  Sheldon's ears are SO big here.  I love the stage where the "ears are bigger than the puppy"!

I love to use the Glitter Dust Photo Corners to accent areas.

I am digging view master die cuts, so you may see a few more of them from me!  I love this one, since it has the hearts instead of squares.  And I was happy that the doily fit right behind it and showed just a little.

I will be back tomorrow with an Imaginisce layout.  And yes, I have already scheduled the post!  Have a great day!
