I went with a monochromatic feel to the layout - not something I usually do - but I like the effect and I really wanted the quote to shine. I have collected tons of sequins, so I wanted to use a lot on my layout which I achieved not only in the cascades but I also filled a vellum envelope with them too!
For the quote, I printed onto my cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo - I finally broke into the pens!! Since I don't have a large format printer ( nor the space to house it), the Silhouette is perfect for printing on my 12x12 layouts!!
I hadn't planned on the black arrow paper layered on top of the gray and verse papers, but I had a horrible mishap with some stamping and had to cover it up. Not exactly what I wanted, but not a bad cover-up!
Sewing sequins down is kind of tricky - some flew off as a sewed over them and some even broke - but I just glued some more on top of the sewing!
I used some products from my May Studio Calico kits (scrapbook and PL), but I also used some papers from previous kits (February) and even a paperclip from my stash that I've had for several years!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

I've had that title in my Silhouette library forever just waiting for the perfect photo to use it with, and I think this photo fits the bill perfectly!! I used just a bit of my supplies from my April Studio Calico kit, but lots of my stash too! I went for a red white and blue themed layout with lots of stars too to match her outfit. The cameras base that frame the photo is made from strips of washi tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! :)

I made this layout for some design team work at my local scrapbook store - Scrapbook Corner - located in Cabot, Arkansas. I used the new Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper line. It's a gorgeous mix of girly, vintage papers and ephemera of which I used lots to layer on this layout! The feather is by Bella Blvd. I cut the title out using a font I downloaded from Dafont.com (I can't remember which font it was!!) and then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out from some American Crafts POW gold glitter paper. Love that I can use ANY font that I've downloaded onto my computer with my Silhouette and weld the letters together. For the butterfly, I layered a couple of diecut butterflies and then used one of the bows for it's body.
I'm so glad you stopped by today! Hope you are having a great day!! :)

This is a fairly simple layout - I really wanted the photo to shine on the beautiful piece of Maggie Holmes Crate paper! I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut my title (both of them actually - I used the negative and positive pieces of the same cut). I punched lots of circles and a few hearts of confetti and scattered them around my page. I added a few rubons and enamel dots with a flair and wooden banner piece to complete my layout!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! :)

I did some misting with the mask that came in my March Studio Calico kit. The paper is from their new line called Snippets - it's one of my most favorite patterns that I've seen in a while and I just might be hoarding several more pieces of it!! I usually don't like rub-ons, but the ones by Amy Tan are just too cute and I've already used up half of the pack that came in the SC kit.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!! :)
