Family Memories

I adore the combination of blue and gold!  In my opinion it is one of the easiest color combinations to work with!  The blues and golds in the October Hip Kits are gorgeous and there is so much to pick from for this color palette.  I started out by painting the exclusive October cut file Leaves by Kim Watson with the Shimmerz in the October Color Kit, while I had my paints out I puddled and splattered some paint onto the gorgeous watercolor paper included in the color kit.  While the paints were drying I decided to get out my gold embossing powder and used it on the bottom half of the memories title from Dear Lizzy Stargazer included in the October 2017 Embellishment Kit.  I haven’t done a layered paper stack in a while and I thought it would be a great way to include more blue and gold into the page.  I layered up multiple papers and also tucked in one of the gorgeous project life cards from the October 2017 Project Life Kit.  Next up, it was time to put it all together!  Once I had my photo stack placed with the title it felt natural to have all the leaves falling down the page I tucked in some of the amazing wood veneer leaves by Kim Watson from the Project Life Kit with the painted leaves for added interest and texture.  I couldn’t resist some more sparkle and used the Pinkfresh Studio alphabet to spell family.  Finally I added some Pinkfresh Studio Embellishments and 3 word stickers from the Pretty Little Studio Feels Like Fall Tiny Word Strips!  I love how my page turned out!

Lovely paint puddles and Hip Kit Club Exclusive Cut Files and Wood Veneer Leaves.

I love the fabric embellishments by Pinkfresh Studio!

Move Mountains

I have been having a ball with my October Hip Kits! I finished all my assignment pages for the Hip Kit Design Team and had plenty of product left over to play with!

I really really wanted to use the mountain geometric paper from Pinkfresh Studio and decided to fussy cut it and add it to a white background.  I fiddled around with a photo for the longest time and finally decided to print off a photo in a triangle!  The gorgeous Pinkfresh butterflies soften up the page a bit and add some dimension.  This layout is a bit different than my “usual” and I love how it turned out!

Oh those butterflies!!  I made an extra one from a woodblock stamp I have!

The Lake

There is a new alpha in town!  Back this Font (Design ID #228014) by Paige Taylor Evans + Silhouette!  I LOVE this font!  It has the perfect size outline and the style is awesome!  I went with a big bold title to make it the main design feature of my layout. I backed the cut letters with papers from Fancy Free by Paige Evans & Pink Paislee.  I then added chipboard, wood veneer and die cuts from Take Me Away and Turn the Page, also by Paige Evans & Pink Paislee!  A few black splatters finished off the layout with one of my all time favorite photos!

So fun to tuck in bits and pieces into the title!

Still the One

This past June, my husband and I celebrated 25 years of marriage!  Holey man time flies!!  I didn’t have a “special” photo but I did remember to snap a selfie that day, so any picture is better than no picture!
I cut the gorgeous Flower 12 Petals (Design ID #216690) by Paige Taylor Evans + Silhouette cut file from Paper 2 from Turn the Page.  I backed every other petal with Paper 18 and Paper 1.  I added some paints to Paper 7 and used it as a background. All the embellishments are from Turn the Page, except for the “25” alpha which is from Fancy Free! After I adhered the flower I cut a portion off to be flush with the background page, my daughter had the bright idea to add it to the opposite side of the page, which I love!!
Scrumptious details!
