Gossamer Blue: Our Easter

Good morning! Today I have one more layout to share with you featuring the March Gossamer Blue kits and this is one of my favorite two-page layouts I have created in awhile. This month I created a tone-on-tone layout with pops of bright color for spring. We love celebrating Easter by coloring Easter eggs, going through our baskets, going to church and eating a big Sunday dinner and then following up with an Easter egg hunt in our backyard. This layout highlights our entire celebration.

I found a set of Easter eggs in the Silhouette online store and cut them out with kraft cardstock. I created the tone-on-tone effect by using kraft cardstock as my background. I used a variety of patterned paper (mostly from the main kit) on the back of the cut outs on the eggs. I love the gold foil paper in this month’s kits and used that as well on one of the stripes and the polka dots. I embellished with wood veneer and chipboard butterflies, stickers, twine and brads.

 I printed a couple of my photos smaller than wallet size and stacked them on a 3×4 card from the Life Pages kit.

Finally, I also found a fun Easter egg border in the Silhouette store and cut it out with kraft cardstock. I backed all of the eggs with patterned papers as I did on the first page and embellished the flower eggs with enamel dots and brads.

Hope you all have a great day!

Webster's Pages: Sweet Giggling Girls

Good morning! Today I have a new layout to share for Webster's Pages featuring the new Sprinkled with Love collection by Allison Kreft. I just adore this collection with its bright colors and fun embellishments! We had a little Valentine's Day photo shoot a while back and I captured this photo of the girls that I just love.

I layered doilies, transparencies and journaling cards at the top of my photo.

I used one of the new wood veneer cards and backed it with a heart transparency. Then I cut down a new paper straw, tied twine around it and strung a heart charm to dangle from the straw.  The alphabet stickers are a mix and match of American Crafts and Webster's Pages.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope your day is great! :)

Webster's Pages: Hello Beautiful Books

Good morning! I haven't shared projects for Webster's Pages in a while so I hope to do that over the next couple days. Allison Kreft's Sweet Notes collection is a favorite of mine and I decided to create this layout about my renewed love of books. I have always been a reader and over the past 6 months or so really got back into it again.

I love the book patterned paper and the library card - they were perfect for this layout!

I love using stickers to mix and match my titles and add little captions!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Gossamer Blue: This Girl

Happy Friday! It is finally looking like spring around here and I LOVE it. What a long, dreary and cold winter. My girls are also on spring break from preschool. We don't have anything major planned and will most likely stick around close to home. I'm hoping if there is a nice afternoon we might go to the zoo. I really need to do some cleaning and organizing at home as well. It will be great to have a break!

Today's layout features Lily - her outgoing personality is what we love most about her. I took these photos of her in her Christmas dress and pulled out the pretty pale pink, cream, white and gold in this month's Gossamer Blue kits.

The 4x6 card at the top was in the Life Pages themed add-on and I accented a few of the polka dots with clear sequins.

The trim is from Webster's Pages and I ruffled it on the page for more texture. I really love the POW glitter paper in gold from American Crafts. It cuts so easily on the Cameo.

Thanks for stopping by today! I have more work I want to share with you next week including my two-page layout for this month. Enjoy your weekend!

Gossamer Blue: Love Notes

Good morning! Today I have another layout to share with the March Gossamer Blue kits. I created this one of the girls working on their valentines for their preschool class.

Gossamer Blue kits have so many great embellishments - sticky notes, brads, tags, enamel hearts, wood veneer, stickers. I just love putting together my layouts with so many options.

I love that heart wood veneer card from Webster's Pages! 

On this layout, I used several of the exclusive Life Pages 3x4 and 4x6 cards - just another way to show you that these cards can be used on your scrapbook pages if you don't do pocket scrapbooking.

Thanks for visiting today! :)

Gossamer Blue: Preschool Pajama Day

Good morning! Hope you all had a great weekend! It's supposed to be a glorious 63 degrees here today. So excited for spring! Today I have a layout to share that I created using the March main kit from Gossamer Blue. The girls recently had a pajama day at preschool so I decided to create the layout focused on that.

I used the circle cut file and then filled in the circles with more patterned paper and stickers. 

The gold foil paper cuts so well on the Cameo - love it!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your day is warm and springlike as well!
