A few new layouts.

28 Jun

Hello friends! Wow it’s almost Friday! This week has been crazy busy and I’m excited to slow down next week and enjoy some time off with the boy. I wanted to pop in and share with you a few layouts I’ve been working on recently. I hope you enjoy! Have a good Friday!

p.s. If you guys ever have a chance to go to Top Pot doughnuts in Seattle you HAVE to go. And eat as much as you possibly can. They are life changing. If the apple fritter in the layout above doesn’t convince you I don’t know what will.

Silhouette Sunday – Map Art

24 Jun

Silhouette Sunday whoop whoop! I love my silhouette so so much. Have I told you guys that before? I actually tell it that every time I use it. And maybe give it a little kiss too. What? Is that weird?

Today I’m going to share my map art project! It was super easy with the help of my beloved machine.

Supplies:

Canvas

Silhouette

Scotch 3M quick dry adhesive

Coordinating pattern papers

Pins (for marking the map when you are done)

I used my map USA cut file which cuts each state individually. I just alternated the different papers so that the different patterns would be somewhat random and more fun to look at. After the cutting was done I just applied the map to my canvas with my 3M adhesive. It’s that simple, really!

 

I decided to put a key on my canvas for the different colors of pins we are going to use. We are marking places where we have been together and separately. Should be fun to watch the map fill up from our travels!

 

Feels like summer.

Happy Happy summer! I hope that you have had a chance to play outside, sip on a cool beverage and stay up late. I love summer so much. I have  way more energy to do things during this lovely season and really love using my extra daylight.

In high school my Mom and I would stay up late scrapbooking. Some of my fondest memories are of us running to our favorite craft stores to grab a sheet of paper in my shorts and flip-flops right before close and going straight home to get to work! I have been very busy creating lately and am feeling extremely inspired. I think it’s a combination of the time of year and all of the gorgeous product floating around lately. I’m excited to share my projects with you!

Thanks for looking. Have a happy Friday!

Getting back into the swing of things.

29 May

Hello Friends! How was your holiday weekend? Mine was great. Filled with movies, date nights, family time, sweat pants and lots of scrapbooking! I really love to scrapbook but hadn’t been doing it all that often until a few weeks ago.  I have been very inspired recently by all sorts of beautiful layouts and products. So I just pulled all of my supplies out, made my house a total mess and got back into the swing. It is so fun and feels so good to be making these pages with my own two hands. Super relaxing.

I am currently trying to figure out the best way to photograph my pages so please hang in there with me while I share some of my not so great photos.  Any tips would be appreciated!

 

 

 

 

Stay tuned for more layouts and improved photos of them! 🙂
