Live Beautifully in depth

Live Beautifully in depth.

Live Beautifully is amazing paper and I wanted to take a post to just showcase how beautiful and amazing it is.   The paper has gold foil accents on some of it.  Two sheets of it are a white with gold polka dots and a white with the rose outline in gold.   Pretty, pretty!  Most of the paper is two-sided and they all have a zip-strip so you can use the little strip you cut off in your projects.

There are two of sheet of paper design in the pack.  I can think of so many different occasions this paper will work for. Proms, weddings, formal events, Mother’s Day, birthdays, and heritage pictures to name a few.  The papers are modern and retro at the same time.  Wait until you see the workshop layouts on my Class Page!

The stamp set is great and wait until you see the cards I made where I embossed the roses with a rose gold embossing powder I found during the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!  So pretty.  The stamps are large enough to work as titles on your scrapbooking pages or as cards.  I love the saying “she believed she could so she did”.  The power of your own thoughts.  The color of your roses can determine the message of your layout or your cards.  Definitely a stamp set that will be usable long past the Live Beautifully papers.

March Paper of the Month: Dreaming Big

Dreamin Big Happy Place

This paper pack is my favorite My Reflections Paper Packs from the Seasonal Expressions.  Did you know you can get it for free?  The colors and paper are fresh and remind me of being outside which is were I like to spend my time.  See the end of the post for the links to all the Dreamin’ Big products.  The “Happy Place” page is a universal page because everyone has their own happy place.  I really like this idea of taking the one page and having it a part of your home decor.   You can get the picture holder from your local craft store.

I just had to share these cards made using the Dreamin’ Big Cardmaking Thin Cut bundle because they are beautiful.  The bundle is 25% off and will count towards a free paper pack.  What?  Free paper?  Read to the end of the post!

March Stamp of the Month (SOM): S1703 Tea-rrific

This is also my favorite SOM in the Seasonal Expressions.  I love coffee and tea so this set is my cup of tea (pun intended).  I’ve had a great time making some cards and pages with this so be watching for posts this month featuring this art work.  It’s $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 product order.  With that $50.00 order you can get this super cute set saving you $12.95 AND a free My Reflection Paper Pack (value $9.95).

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and checking out the Cut It Out special along with my Customer Appreciation Special.

Beautiful and You can get FREE

Beautiful and You can get FREE:

Here’s the last layout for the Hello Lovely WYW.  For the free, read to the end of the post.

It’s a beautiful layout using more of the patterned paper from the pack.  You add clusters in different spots of embellishments using the Hello Lovely Compliments.

The glitter gold gems are awesome embellishments around the stickers included in the pack.   I think you could use this layout for a prom date or other fancy affair besides a wedding.

These hearts are different – they are like a dark gold plastic.  They add 3D without being big and bulky.  =)

Here’s another cluster with the stickers, gold gems, and the Blush Shimmer Ribbon.

The title of this layout is also in the dark gold plastic.  It’s nice to use something different for the title besides stickers and Cricut cuts once  in a while.  I thought another use of this layout would be a sweet candid shot you took of your favorite person.
