Sunshine and Good Times

Sunshine and Good Times:

Taking a break from cards and coffee, here’s a Sunshine and Good Times Dreamin Big Camera Shaker Layout!  The left page of the layouts was inspired by Queen and Company’s sample layout for the Picture Perfect Kit.  Since I’m always taking pictures on both my camera and phone, this was a great layout to capture this.

My left page:My right page:

 

The Dreamin Big papers and compliments are awesome to use.  I think it’s my favorite paper of the SE1.  I had not used the bugs much so I opted to use this along with the zipstrips and a retired camera set from CTMH.  I also used 2 sentiments for a stamp set I received as a door prize at a crop from – .  I stamp on the tags and pennants from the Compliments.  I used the Pictures My Life cards from the Dreamin Big paper pack create the saying on the right page – “Sunshine and Good Times”.  How easy was that?

I used Black Shimmer Tape to add borders across both pages.  The Dreamin Big sequins were spread randomly through out the pages to add a little bling.  SG is always outside playing and collecting bugs.  Now that the weather is turning, I’ll be able to capture this.  The Camera Shaker is an added fun bonus to the page.  =)

Be Happy Gratitude Layout

signature-transparentI created this layout as part of my S1609 Blessed Beyond Measure samples and I focused on the Gratitude sentiment in the stamp set using “Be Happy” from the Adventure Compliments for the title.

 

Be Happy wm 2

I used the Enchantment Fundamental Paper Pack, the Adventure Compliments, and the Enchantment Ribbon Pack.  I used the following inks: Goldrush, Saffron, New England Ivy, Pomegranate, and Chocolate.  (links to products at the end of the post).

Be Happy Left Page wm

 

I love the new Fundamental Compliments.  There is so much in each packet.  The above hearts, “Be Happy” are glitter and chipboard.  Great dimension and bling.  Look at how much you get in each pack, not to mention that the different materials used:

Here’s the right page:

Be Happy right page wm

 

I used the ribbon from the Enchantment Ribbon Collection to create the seam.

The pumpkins and leaves are cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy collection which is retired (I have 2 left) so if you have it, this makes things a little quicker.  I stamped the pumpkin in Goldrush.  I used our watercolor pencils to add dimension and shading, then going over it with Shimmer Brush.  The leaves are stamped with Saffron and Pomegranate, then using tissue, “sponged” with Saffron, New England Ivy, and Pomegranate.

We liked this layout so much, we duplicated it to create a class for September and for Harbor Scrapbooking’s PA event.  The layouts will look different (and each layout will be different) because we do not have bulk paper for the Fundamental Packs.  Because I know some peeps will want it to match, we created 4 different ways to have your kit made.  All the stamping and cutting is done for you.  With pictures, you’ll be able to assemble the pages.  You’ll need to distress the images as you desire and add the Shimmer Brush.

If you are unable to attend the event on the 10th (CropTastic) and 22-25 (Harbor Scrapbooking), I’m happy to create it for you and mail it out.  Shipping will be added to the costs.  You can contact me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Florence WYW 2nd Layout and don’t forget

Here’s the 2nd layout with the Florence WYW.  The more I play with this paper, the more I enjoy the earthly tones of the paper and I just love the Rose Gold Foil Tape!

Florence LO2

Here’s the left page of the layout

Florence LO2 LP

And here’s the right page.

Florence LO2 RP

The Florence Compliments and Florence Sequins along with the Rose Gold Foil tape, just add so much to this layout.  To me the “Rose Gold” is copper.  My dream is a kitchen full of the copper pans.  To me, copper is warm and inviting.  When you add the copper accents from the Florence Compliments, I feel like the 2nd layout changes and becomes warm and inviting.

This picture does not show it so much.  “Genuine” is from the Florence Compliments:

The Compliments come in the WYW now.  This one is a little better for showing the foil tape and copper tones in the the Compliments:

Jackson Layout with flips

This is the second layout for Jackson from the Jackson WOTG. I had a number of photos for this event so I used a number of different flip flaps to make it work.

Jackson WOTG 2nd Layout, Linda Creates ~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.comHere is the base layout:

Jackson WOTG 2nd Layout, Linda Creates ~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

Both layouts feature taking an overlay (hexigon) from Z1906 Cricut Artbooking cut at 8″ and using our Z1380 spray pens to spritz color over the top of the overlay.  You remove the overlay once done.  It’s a masking technique.

Jackson WOTG 2nd Layout, Linda Creates ~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

The fonts used in the title are a mix from the different fonts offered on the CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartidges! I’m into mixed fonts (as is everyone else-LOL).  “Great Outdoors” is a title from Artbooking.  Embellishments came from the “In the Pink” My Crush Assortment and Clips:

I really love how Hollyhock worked so well with the Jackson Papers! I added a 12″ flip flap on the right page to add room for the additional pictures.

On this flip flap, I added 2 – 4″x6″ flip books and one 4″x4″ flip book. This allowed me to add 13 additional pictures!

Taste of Summer Layout

My second Taste of Summer layout “Orange You Sweet” is from the Close to My Heart  “Make It From Your Heart – Vol 2”  How To books.  Our How To books are great for inspiration.

I took a variety of pictures featuring “Ginger”, our much beloved “Boonie Dog” from Guam.  She had been with our family for 15 years.  Such a hard loss for our family, particularly my husband, and especially for SG.  Creating this layout helped us take our favorite memories and preserve them for years to come.  Now looking at the layout, I’m going to back and cut out “Ginger” from the Cricut and put her name up on the left corner of the left page as part of the title.  I used the Taste of Summer papers and stamp set, the National Scrapbooking Special from Close to My Heart to create this layout.  It’s the 22nd of May and you have 9 more days to get this wonderful paper and stamp set before they are gone!

I used a few techniques with Liquid Glass covering the inside of the oranges.  I love that the Liquid Glass pulls some of the orange ink and creates the yellow look for the sections of the oranges.  With the Coral Reef sequins, I put a dab of pearl paints in the center to match the orange in the paper.

Have I shared how I like to cut things out?  I do but fussy cutting can take so long.  So I love any stamp set which works with the Circut!!  With the Taste of Summer Stamp set, Close to My Heart’s exclusive Artiste Cartridge is it!!

There is so much I like about how this turned out. I really like how the orange in the papers sets off the orange in Ginger’s coat.  The layers on the left side reflect the layers of our lives and how Ginger has been there from the beginning of our marriage.
