You Are So Loved-Gossamer Blue Share

The idea for this layout came from??  Seriously, I have no idea!  I am thinking I saw the hearts on the background papers and then just went from there.  And this picture of Higgins and Jetson, definitely makes my heart happy!

As I said, the GB kits were very beach themed for September and it was almost like a mission for me not to make anything beachy.  And well, I couldn't because I don't have any beachy pics!

You cannot really see it, but there is a pocket envelope that the hearts are coming out of.  The heart arrangement changed from moment to moment as I was putting it together.  I finally decided that I had to call it done at some point!

The look on Jetson's face is is priceless!  He was actually sleeping before I got up to get the camera.  And I grabbed the closet camera I could, my phone.  Sometimes you just have to work with what you have.

What is on your agenda today?  Work for me and then hopefully some scrapping after that.  I really want to work ahead with the holidays coming up!  Have a great Tuesday!

Happy Fall Card with Imaginisce

Woohoo!!  Fall is here and I am ready.  Although, September has gone by a little too quickly for me.  I haven't had time to slow down and just enjoy the days.  I need to make more time to do that, slow down and just be.

Oh, I have a couple of CAS cards up over on the 3 Birds Studio blog today using the Touch of Glimmer kit.  You can check those out HERE.

Sharing a card with Imaginisce goodies.  The leaves are actually left over from my project that will be on the Imaginisce blog tomorrow.  And I still have more leftovers, so I am plotting on what I am going to do with them.

And I think Fall is one of my favorite seasons to scrap or craft for.  Some of my favorite projects have been Fall themed.  My layout tomorrow is no exception, non traditional, but I love it!

Here you can see where I popped the blue leaf up, along with the "Happy Fall" die cut.

And I have to give props to Carleen and the pottery collection she has made (pun intended!)  I am getting some cute things to put with my projects when I photograph them!

Have a great Monday!

Fun Is Ahead-Gossamer Blue Layout

I just realized that I hadn't posted any of my GB layouts from the August kit.  So, I thought I had better do something about it!

I am switching it up today with an 8.5 x 11 layout.  FYI, I think I need to buy an 8.5 x 11 album, since I seem to be doing these a little more frequently!  And this pic…aren't they adorable?!  So cute!

Supplies:  Not doing a full listing, but GB exclusive papers, Webster's Pages, Heidi Swapp and Echo Park.  And ThermOWeb Adhesives!

I wanted the journaling to "pop" of  the page, so I used this pink pattern paper in the kit and then a glitter sketch pen in my Silhouette.  I love how it turned out.

This GB kit wasn't one of my favorites, for the sheer fact a lot of it was beach themed.  We don't have a beach close, so I had to get a little creative with it. The tag and the yellow polka dot paper are actually covering a "beach scene" on the vellum!

It's been a long weekend and I am off here for the night!  Have a great day tomorrow and I will be back probably on Tuesday!

Thanks with 17 Turtles Cut Files

As you have probably seen, my awesome friend, Juliana Michaels has her own Etsy store for cut files.  17 Turtles  She asked me to guest design and I said sure!

I have a layout up over on her blog and you can find that layout HERE.  I have to say it's one of my current favorites!  There is a sneak of it at the bottom of this post. 

I used her Butterflies No. 1 for this card.  I just created different sizes of the one butterfly I wanted to use.

I wanted layers!  And then I got a little crazy with the mist.  I am not a good "flicker" of mist to make dots! I probably need more practice.

I used a tape runner to adhere the middles of the butterflies, but then I used the 3D Foam Squares from ThermOWeb to make the wings pop.  I just used a few in strategic places as you can see below.

Terrified with American Crafts Shimelle and a 3 Birds Sneak

Terrified and rubbish, that is exactly how I feel about going to the dentist.  I know a lot of people have a fear of the dentist, but mine is pretty extreme.  As in, I don't go unless I have to.  Not good, I know, but I am going to try to be better about it.  I knew recently I needed to go in, because I was pretty sure part of a filling had fallen out.  I CRIED before I made the phone call for the appointment.

I get there for my "check up" and to see what is going on.  They were late calling me back and I was getting ready to RUN out the door.  Literally.  End of story.  About the time I was going to get up, they came and got me.  

So these pictures are from my appt. for the crown/filling.  THAT went great.  Lots of nitrous and according to the dentist, she gave me a "cocktail" to numb me.  She made sure I was good and numb too!  I got a little loopy and had to tell them to turn the nitrous down a bit, but that's better than not enough!  This is the new American Crafts, Shimelle collection.  The colors are a little more muted than I thought they would be, but I liked working with them.

Design ID #21743

The cleaning they scheduled me for is an entire story in itself.  The lady was horrible, and talked down to me.  She probably thought she was being "soothing" but let me tell you, she wasn't.  I was mad the entire weekend after my appointment.  A waste of good energy!  When I went back into to get my crown and filling (yes I had to have TWO things done), I was not a happy camper.  The nice lady scheduled me for someone else for my next cleaning.  Which I have to do four of, the "deep" cleaning ones.  ICK! 

I used some of the rub-ons on the chalkboard flair piece.  Then that "what a load" wood veneer was perfect for the layout!

The cork camera piece.  I just really didn't have anything to stick there that didn't look weird with the "nitrous" selfie!  I also colored in some of the dots around the edge of the layout with a gold pen.

And I have a trio of cards up over on the 3 Birds Studio Blog.  You check them out HERE.  Here is a sneak of what you can find….

Therm O Web and Basic Grey Team Up

Fun stuff on the Therm O Web blog this past couple of weeks.  It's a Basic Grey team up and there is a giveaway!  I have a post up on the Therm O Web blog today and you can find that post HERE.   

Plus, I loved the Second City collection so much, that I did ANOTHER layout for my blog here today!

Supplies:  Pattern Paper, Die Cuts, Flair, Chipboard, Stickers-Basic Grey (Second City or Highline); Adhesive-Therm O Web (3D Foam Squares, Zots, Liquid Fabric Fuse); Pen-Sharpie

The look on her face is priceless!  And I usually do not match papers to photos, but her case that she is carrying just seemed to scream at me to scrap this picture with these papers!

I used Zots to attach the "hello" bubble and then Liquid Fabric Fuse to attach the chipboard letters.

That's all I've got!  Stay tuned, same scrap time, same scrap channel for another project soon!

Add A Little Flair To Your Projects

Ekk, so excited that I get to debut projects for {a flair for buttons} today!  I have a layout up over on {a flair for buttons} blog today.  You can see that project HERE.

I have to say that the last few paper collections that I have worked with, I have been in love with!  This collection is My Mind's Eye Jubilee and I have just about used it all up!  For a girl that likes to buy paper, this is a very good thing!

I am sharing a card here today with the collection.  And I used flair from the "Hello Life" flair set.  This flair went perfectly with the paper collection and why make creating harder, right?!

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file
Tri-fold Card: Scalloped
Design ID# 63364

I love the flair that you can choose your backing.  This one is flat backed, so all it took was a Zot from ThermOWeb to attached it to my die cut. Plus, it's going in the mail, so I wanted it a little flatter than I normally do things!

Here is the flair set I used, how fun is it?!

Hello Life Flair Set

And I had to show how the card opens!  This is a Lori Whitlock cut file and I thought it was super cute. Both sides actually open, but I didn't want my picture to be too big. The wrapper that has the flair piece on it, just slides over the card to close it.  CUTE!

And I will leave you with a sneak of my project that is over on the {a flair for buttons} blog.  I am telling you, I LOVE the Jubilee collection from My Mind's Eye!

Fall Layout With 3 Birds Design

Wheeeee!!!  I think Fall is officially getting here, which makes me super excited. This weekend the temps dropped 20 degrees and I pulled out a sweatshirt! Sweater weather here I come.

3 Birds has a new sketch for September up on the blog.  It's a double page sketch also.   I did a layout based on it that posted today.  You can find that layout HERE.  The one below is also based on it, but I just did a one page!

And once again, I have a Fall themed project! It's a layout with 3 Birds goodies from the Midday Medley collection.  I have noticed I am totally drawn to orange to scrap with.  Weird right?  But good for Fall projects.

Fall Memories Layout_2014-9-8_KHunt-1
Supplies:  Pattern Paper-3 Birds Design (Midday Medley); Chipboard-3 Birds Design (Graceful Season); Title Card-3 Birds Design (For All Seasons Project Cards); Gems-3 Birds Design (Pearlescent and Foil Goodie Box); Sticker-3 Birds Design (Sticker Flair); Doily-Wilton; Mist-Studio Calico; Adhesive-ThermOWeb

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file
Thankful Pumpkins by 17turtles 

A white doily was just a little to stark for the layout!  I misted with some Studio Calico mist and then added the chipboard and title card.  The "fall memories" was actually cut from one of the For All Seasons project cards and then I just mounted on foam adhesive. 
Fall Memories Layout_2014-9-8_KHunt-2

And the pumpkins, OMG!  Juliana's layered files in her Etsy shoppe ROCK!  I am not saying this as a friend or anything, but these are the best layered files I have worked with.  The layers are colored, so that you can tell where each piece goes!!!  It helps you figure out the colors you want to use quickly and easily!

Imaginisce-Fall Is In The Air

Sharing my card that was on the Imaginisce blog yesterday.  Fall is my second favorite season, with Winter being first.  I know, I am weird, right?!  So, I was happy to make a Fall themed card.  The trick was to do it with the current collections from Imaginisce!

Supplies:  Pattern Paper-Imaginisce (Welcome Spring, Bushels o'Fall); Cardstock-American Crafts; Letter Stickers-Lawn Fawn; Glitter Tape-American Crafts; Twine-American Crafts; Tool-Imaginisce I-Rock and gems; Adhesive-Therm O Web; Embossing Pad-Ranger; Embossing Powders-Ranger

Pottery piece courtesy of Carleen's collection!

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut files:

Just a close up of the embossing.  It isn't quite smooth, but I kind of wanted it that way, to give the  feathers a little texture.

And those gems were pretty easy to place using the I-rock and gems that go with the tool.  I tied my bow separately, like I always do!

{a flair for buttons} & Go Belly Up

So, so, so excited!  Shelley from {a flair for buttons} asked me to join her team last week!  I have loved her flair for a LONG time and am so happy to be on her team.  I have a ton of ideas that I cannot wait to do!

You can see the announcement HERE if you want!  And her Etsy shoppe is HERE.  She adds new styles of flair all the time and they are super cute!

This is my last layout with the July Gossamer Blue kits.  I just hadn't posted it yet.  I did the GB sketch challenge with this one, but just changed it up a bit.

And some more circles.  And mist, plus a circle covering a "mist-hap"!
