Turtle Soup Blog Hop

Welcome to the Turtle Soup Spring Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Louise B's Blog, if not, you can start here.

I used a photo of Sierra coloring Easter eggs a few years ago along with some JilliBean Soup and Bella Blvd and came up with this:

I hand stitched the pink square using embroidery floss. It has been awhile since I hand stitched on a layout and it was really relaxing!

I fussy cut the word "Springtime"  and also that cute little pink frog. Isn't she adorable?!

The rainbow is probably my favorite part. I fussy cut it and popped it up with foam tape to give some dimension.

I added a few stickers, a fussy cut egg, umbrella and bee.

Here's the hopping order in case you get lost along the way:

Please comment along the way and leave a final comment on the Turtle Soup Blog for your chance to win a random prize.

Now off you go to Louise T's Blog.
Happy hopping!

Hello there scrappy friends!
How often do you scrap a layout about yourself? Years ago, I didn't scrap any photos of me, but that has been one of my resolutions for the last few years. Besides, selfies are popular now, so snap away :) Today I am sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous Flamingo ColorWays collection and yes, a selfie of me! I used my Cameo to cut the cut file and then backed the squares with different Flamingo ColorWays patterned papers. I love the outcome!

Selfie- PH WM (796x800)

I just wanted to share some close ups of these stunning papers and embellishments:

Selfie- PH WM close up 1 (640x427)

Selfie- PH WM close up 5 (640x484)

Selfie- PH WM close up 3 (640x427)

Selfie- PH WM close up 2 (640x444)

You can check out my full post over on the Paper House Blog.
As you can see, I had a lot of fun creating with this gorgeous collection!

Mostly Purple

Hi there Scrappy Friends!
There is a new challenge up over at Cards In Envy today.
The challenge is to use mostly purple on your flat card. This was a challenge for me as I rarely use purple and don't have a lot of it in my scrappy supplies. So I dug in my supplies, found a few purple things  and came up with this:

I love the outcome!
I used watercolors for my background, added a purple doily, a few cut files from The Cut Shoppe and topped it off with some flowers and twine.
Dig out your purple supplies and join us for this fun challenge!

February Project 12

Happy Saturday!
Hope you are having a great weekend so far.
Today I posted my Project 12 layout and sketch over on the Turtle Soup and wanted to share it here as well.
I used an American Crafts paper pad I have had in my stash for a few years and came up with this:

Here is the right side:

and the left:

A few close ups:
I used a cut file from the Silhouette store and cut 2 of them at a little over 10". I colored them with yellow watercolor and then splattered with a pink mist. Finally stitching them in place once they were dry.
I fussy cut the "hello" and the flowers from a few patterned papers:

I also fussy cut the "Happy" circle and the small flower and popped them up with pop dots:

More fussy cutting:

Here is the sketch I created:
I would love to have you play along with me. This is a great way to get those photos scrapped!

So Pretty

Hey there!
Last weekend I had a little free time from some design team work and played along with the march 1st sketch at Stuck?! I always love playing along with Laura's sketches :)
I used Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss along with the Heidi Swapp background paper and some of her embellies for this layout of Sierra:

I love th e gold "So pretty" Thicker and just had to use it, finally, lol:

I added some white Gesso to my background and then added some watercolors on top. The totally arrow has been in my stash for quite awhile and the gold "chic" and "um, yeah" were in a Heidi Swapp package I picked up a few months ago on clearance at Michaels:

I beleve the XoXo came from the emphera pack fromCitrus Bliss. I fussy cut the "hello" card from one of the 6x6 patterned papers and added some thread under it:

I love those gold hearts I scattered  around the page! And check out the pie chart diecut! Love it! I backed it with different papers and then stitched it to my page:

Here is the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Robin's Nest Layout

Hi there!
Today I am sharing the full reveal of the layout I shared a sneak peek of last week- the one that I posted on the Robin's Nest Blog.

I used a recent photo of my hubby and myself taken around Valentine's day. I wanted to create a love themed layout and what better way to do that  than using pink?! I also added a few spots of red:

The cut file is from the Cut Shoppe- I love their cut files!

Here are a few close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!
