Summer Vibes #12 - Aloha

Not a stitch of pattern paper on this layout. its all cuts. I tried to use some of the pattern paper but it just didn't fit. Then I thought what about a clothes line for the shirts and this is what I came up with. enjoy!  Details: Base -Kraft (2) 8.5 X 11.25 Black Photo mats (3) 3 X 4 and a 4 X 6 Ink - Mango Melody, Real Red and Pear Pizzazz from SU Cut files from the Cricut Paper used: White Daisy, Canary, Candy Apple Red, Smoothie, Fern, Glacier and Nectarine Twine is from stash

Summer Vibes # 10 - Splash zone

 Inner tubes and beach balls - Great for pool pictures or maybe some bumper boats with the water shooters??? Either of these pictures should work out with the feel of these layouts. I cut the files before working them onto the layout in hindsight I would have made the "Splash Zone" title a bit bigger but I can live with this one as is. Details: Glacier 8.5 X 11.25 Summer items pattern paper (2) 3 X 11.25 - the horizontal strip is cut at 8.5 and the remainder is on the 2nd page  The horizontal lines up with the vertical strip on the right page Glacier Photo mats (4) 3 X 4 and 4 X 6 Cricut cuts for the inner tubes, beach ball and title Cardstock used:  White Daisy, Glacier, Canary, Candy Apple Red, Nectarine, Green apple and Smoothie

Summer Vibes #9 - Flip flops

This is a super duper simple layout that took 2 days! Well I spilled water on the paper - had the cap slightly on the bottle but when I grabbed it the top came off and the bottle got water everywhere. So the paper is water damaged (perfect for a beach page right!)I had my cuts all done and then decided I didn't care for the flip flops that came with the verbiage banner. So I found one I liked and  then I needed some stuff for another layout so I cut lots today instead of finishing and posting this morning like I had intended to. I am actually happy with this layout I thought it was going to be an utter fail and instead I am already  thinking of what pictures should go on this layout. that is a huge win for me. And are those flip flops not adorable??  This will be a fun layout for some simple beach pages - the Kraft paper makes me think of sand Details: Kraft 8.5 X 11.25 Wave pattern paper 3.5 X 11.25 and 1 X 11.25 Glacier Photo mats (3) 3 X 4 and (2) 4 X 6) Kept it all landscape th

Summer Vibes - Sweet as a Melon

  This was a layout idea I found online.  Got the cut files and re-created it in a smaller size of course. the ant was the seller on this one. He was just so cute I had to have a layout with him on it.  The red Gingham paper is left over from the other layouts so it is using up scraps as well as being adorable.   Details: Base page  - White Daisy (2) 8.5 X11.25 Red Gingham  pattern paper  3.75 x 11.25 and 2 X 8.5 Black photo mats  (3) 4 X 6(1) 3 X 4  Cricut cuts - large ant, watermelon, small ants, heart, tag, banner and title  Stamps used: CTMH Friendship Word Puzzle (fun times)

Tiered Tray Décor for Fall

I needed a little me time this week and completely forgot I needed to get a post in yesterday.  Thought I had till today to do it and felt guilty that I was doing my fall tiered tray set up. I have a ton of Halloween and quite a bit of Thanksgiving but very little fall. I loved the kit on Paisleys and Polka dots   that has the leaf sign, sunflower fence and leaf tag as well as a large sunflower and then the smaller sunflowers in the picture I got from IdahoCustom Creations   And I went to Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago to get these gnomes (saw them online) and they were out so I got them online at Mercari - thank goodness they had them as they are perfect for my tray. I do need a little height type item so I will be on the look out for that but I am calling this a win. (Berries, acorns, leaves and etc are from JoAnns)  Isn't the book reading gnome adorable.  Painted all the little bits that didn't have paper to cut and cover today for my me time. It was a nice relaxing part of my
