Center Picture Window card - Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!

Today I have another Center Picture Window card to share. Of course there also had to be a mermaid one! I made this one a birthday card. For the front I used the cut out oval part again from the inside, die cut from the Really Rainbow Scallops paper. Where I didn't use this paper, I colored the card with Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. All the images are from the Mermaid For You set.



Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Paper Issues - Secret Life of Pets

Hi everyone!

I made another layout for the Secret Life of Pets challenge at Paper Issues. The story behind this picture is that Blink really likes to have her space at times, but her friend Rover doesn't always agree with that and likes to snuggle up with her. So when Blink was just chilling on the porch, Rover went to lay against her, first on his side. Blink gave me a look like 'can you please get him away from me?' and then Rover rolled on his back like he was saying 'come on, I love you and now you have to rub my belly'. I was dying laughing but luckily I was able to get a picture before Blink moved to the other side of the porch. Of course Rover followed her there :-)

For this layout I used papers from Pretty Little Studio Bohemian Dreams, ephemera from Maggie Holmes and puffy stickers from Vicki Boutin. These come all from different Paper Issues monthly kits. The title is made with Bella Blvd Florence alpha stickers. I also added some Nuvo Crystal Drops, wood veneer pieces and a button from A Flair for Buttons.

Paper Issues - Scraplift Sunday

Hi everyone!

Of course I have been playing along with Scraplift Sunday again this weekend. This week's inspiration came from Sindi Jeffers. I love the clean look of her layout.

For my layout I used Simple Stories Oh Happy Day and tried to keep it a clean design as well. I used Vicki Boutin puffy stickers for the title and added Amy Tan puffy hearts and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Paper Issues - LIVE

Hi everyone!

Last night was my first LIVE in the Paper Issues Friends & Fans facebook group and today I'm sharing the layout I have made.

It was so much fun to scrap and have the feeling that I have a lot of scrappy friends around me, like I'm at a crop. I want to thank you all who were there LIVE with me and if you were not able to be there, just click the link above to watch it.

I used a mix of the Simple Stories Sunshine & Blue Skies and Happy Day collections and added puffy stickers from Pink Paislee Horizon.





Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you all August 24th for my next LIVE at Paper Issues!

Paper Issues - Secret Life of Pets Challenge

Hi everyone!

I have another Center Picture Window card to share and I think this one is my very favorite so far. I've made it for the Secret Life of Pets challenge at Paper Issues. I tried to fit as many doggies, from the Lawn Fawn Critters at the Dog Park set, in as possible. To create the scene I used the Hillside Border dies. Usually I color the scenes with Distress Oxide inks, but for this card I used Lawn Fawn's Spiffy Speckles papers.

For the front I created a little scene with my favorite dog of the set. I really like to use the oval that you cut out for the inside of the card. The sentiment comes from the Critters at the Dog Park set as well.

And then when you open the card there are all these doggies playing around!

Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Center Picture Window card - Sea You Soon

Hi everyone!

Recently I started making these Center Picture Window cards with the die cut set from Lawn Fawn. I love how they turn out and they are so fun to make! Today I'm sharing the first one I made with the You are Sublime set.

I created a small underwater scene for the front of the card.

And then there's the fun part when you open the card. You can create a full underwater scene!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Paper Issues - Scraplift Sunday

Hi everyone!

Today a layout for my favorite Paper Issues challenge of the week: Scraplift Sunday! This week's inspiration came from Anna.

I usually just grab one collection or kit to make a layout, because then I don't have to think about matching colors and patterns. For this picture of Blink, taken during one of our walks, I wanted to use that Simple Stories Paradise Found paper for sure. The leaves on the paper are also in the picture. But I also wanted to go for the Pinkfresh Studio Out and About embellishments because they fit the picture perfectly. It was a tough one as the colors didn't match at all, but I went for it anyway. The Thickers for the title and the teal Echo Park paper came from the Paper Issues June Kit. I finished the layout with some doodling and Bottle Green Nuvo drops.

The sign in the picture says 'For tired strangers' and it's located at a wooden bus stop along a very steep road.

Paper Issues - Sunny Summer Time challenge

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I've made for the Sunny Summer Time challenge over at Paper Issues. Challenges like these are my favorite as I have photos for this theme all year long. Now don't get too jealous, because I'm really struggling the rest of the year with Autumn and Winter collections and challenges :-)

This picture is taken one of the mornings that I took Blink and her friend Rover to the beach, where running and chasing a ball is their favorite thing to do. I used the Pinkfresh Studio Out and About collection and added some Nuvo drops to my layout. This collection came with so many fun embellishments and it all works perfect for pictures of dogs who love to be out and about!




Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Paper Issues - Scraplift Sunday

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I played along with Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues. This week the inspiration came from Rachel.

I took this picture on a real early morning beach walk. I had a real hard time editing the picture to make it usable. The light is really bad when the sun is not completely up yet, but I loved this picture too much to not use it for a layout. I went with the Pinkfresh Studio Out and About collection, which I love for doggie adventures.




Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Paper Issues - You've Got To Be Kittin' Me

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a layout for the You've Got To Be Kittin' Me Challenge over at Paper Issues. I realized that I didn't even open my June kit Pontoon yet...so it was time to jump in and make a layout for the kit challenge.

I took this picture last week when I took Blink to Gary's Pond. It's a little area where they put big rocks in the ocean to create a pond where you can swim in, since the ocean around Saba is mostly too rough to swim in. Blink didn't feel like going in the water, but she enjoyed running around for sure!




Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Paper Issues - Scraplift Sunday

Hi everyone!

It's Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues and today's inspiration is by Kelly. I love how she surrounded her picture with embellishments. I went for another wedding picture and Pretty Little Studio Shine Bright.
I started with white cardstock and used a Vicky Boutin blue crayon with water to drip on the background. With the embellishments that come with this collection, it was easy to lift Kelly' layout. As a finishing touch I added two colors Nuvo drops randomly over my layout.




Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday!

Paper Issues - Scraplift Sunday

Hi everyone!

Today I have a 30 minute layout to share. I just love it when that happens! Mostly it happens with the Scraplift Sunday challenge though, it's just easy when someone else basically did all the thinking for you already :-)

This time the challenge is based on a layout made by Stacie and you can find it here in the July challenge album in the Paper Issues Friends and Fans facebook page. For my layout I used the Pretty Little Studio Shine Bright collection, which is great for wedding pictures. On this layout a picture of our first dance. I love the angle of the picture, how you see the lights hanging there like we're dancing under the stars.
