May Gallery pt. 3

Today I'm here to share my last project for the Elle's Studio May Inspiration Gallery. I'm not a card maker. I find it so hard to come up with anything interesting or pretty. So I usually just don't make cards. Only when absolutely necessary, for birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. This card is really out of my normalcy... it's a hello card, a just because card. :)

The "hello" is from the Silhouette Store, I misted it with mustard Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist. 

Anyway, thanks so much for coming by to see it.

May Gallery Part 2

Hi all. I'm here to share another project I made for the Elle's Studio May Inspiration Gallery.

For this layout I used my Silhouette SD to cut a into my background paper. Then I backed each letter with a different pattern paper from each of the lines, Serendipity, You & Me, & Day to Day.

This quote is from the movie Inception, while it is perfect for the the movie, it is also a perfect inspirational quote. No matter what, I want both Steph & Sue to dream bigger and bigger, and follow those dreams throughout their life. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy NSD + May Gallery Project 1

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!

Today I'm here to share one of my projects from the May Gallery over at Elle's Studio. This project is one of my favorites to date. I really wanted to try to step out of my normal & try something new for me. :) To be honest, circles scare me, in scrapbooking that is. I never know what to do with circle embellishments & tags, & I usually just tuck them or use the to overlap a few layers... EVERY TIME! So I wanted the circle to be my main focus on this page, as you will see.

I kept layering circles until it ended up going all the way across the page & I struggled with whether it was too busy, but I decided to embrace it & added some hand-stitched circles to give it a little something other than paper.

I hope you like it. Thanks for coming by to see it. :)
