Happy Friday everyone! A week ago it was my birthday and my Dad and brother sent me the perfect birthday gift: the Fuji Instax Share printer. I had this one on top of my wishlist and I'm so excited and thankful that I own it right now! This printer uses the same film as the Instax mini cameras, but you send the photos from your smartphone to the printer which means you can print any picture you took with your smartphone.

Of course I had to play with it immediately. To use the printer you need the Instax Share app, which you can download for free. This app has some filters and templates to edit your pictures. For the picture on this layout I used two different Instagram filters though. In the Instax Share app you can easily upload your pictures from your film roll, your Instagram or Facebook account.

This picture of me and my best friend is taken at our local beach during a beach walk. Living very close to the beach is not only fun when the weather is hot, I might even love it more when it's a little colder and you have the beach all to yourself! These beach walks clear your head and it's very relaxing.

For my layout I used the Basic Grey Highline collection and the Borderlines Too and Travelin' On cut files from The Cut Shoppe. I also added two buttons from A Flair for Buttons.

Speaking of Basic Grey, did you see the new Second City collection by Kelly Purkey in the Paper Issues store? It's so fun and colorful and besides the pretty papers, there are tons of cute embellishments too!

DT The Cut Shoppe - You make me happy

Today I'm sharing a layout for The Cut Shoppe. This time I went for the Borderlines Too cut file, picked the swirl border and created a background with it. I used the La la la love you cut file for a sub title on my page.
All papers and embellishments are from the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine collection.

DT Life.Paper.Scrapbook. - August Mood Board challenge

It's time for the August Mood Board challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. and we're having some great colors and patterns for you! Besides all the excitement for this new challenge, I'm also feeling sad that this will be Life.Paper.Scrapbook.'s last challenge for now. It's been such a joy to be part of the team right from the beginning and I want to thank Manda for having me and trusting me with coordinating all the challenges!

I used my Clique Kits August Glam Camp kit for this layout. I was totally in love with that Webster's Pages vellum sheet that I used for the background. This picture is taken on our family camping trip through Florida in 2011.

Now it's your turn to show us what you'll make with this mood board, you can link up your layouts overhere at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

DT The Cut Shoppe - I love you to infinity & beyond

Today I have a layout to share for The Cut Shoppe. It was this Alphabet Soup cut file that inspired me to make this bubble layout. Ashley was so sweet to send me just one of the circles without the alphabet, so I could use the circles as bubbles. I also used the new I love you to infinity & beyond phrase cut file and the Word Frame cut file.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
