This past weekend I attended the most amazing classes at Let's Get Creative taught by Suzy West. They were held at the Prima Outlet in Chino, California. I learned some (new to me) techniques and created some gorgeous layouts. And today I would like to feature two of these amazing creations!!


This is a photo of me and my boys at the beach in San Clemente this summer. I love the ocean and am glad my kids do too. I can't keep them out of the water.


I just love the way we used corrugated cardboard box for the photo mat. And the way we framed it is just gorgeous. There are so many lovely details to look at!


My surfer boys. Well not really! But they do Boogie Board. More pics of them from our trip to San Clemente this summer.

 
These layouts feature gorgeous Prima flowers and the new "SEA SHORE" paper line and chipboard diecuts by Prima. This paper is gorgeous!!! I am so glad I was able to share these with you!

  LoveBug Creations- Nautical

Pin It
Hello Lovebugs!!
 

It's my day with another new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 
I am so excited to share with you this fabulous Sea Inspired layout. Probably the most detailed layout I have ever created.

 
This past weekend I attended the most amazing classes at Let's Get Creative taught by Suzy West. They were held at the Prima Outlet in Chino, California. I learned some (new to me) techniques and created some gorgeous layouts. One of my layouts included a tag that allowed me to incorporate some yummy LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon.
 
 
Lots of distressing, both in inking and tearing. I love the added pop of teal the chipboard elements and the Jaded Rumple Ribbon add to this layout.
 
 
Of course the layout features gorgeous Prima flowers and the new "SEA SHORE" paper line and chipboard diecuts by Prima. This paper is gorgeous!!!
 
 
And gorgeous canvas and lace. This is also the first time I ever incorporated actual rocks on a layout.
Just love it! This is a favorite for sure!
 
 
Be sure to come on back Saturday to see the other two layouts I created at this fun event. They will be featured in my Down by the Seashore Blog Hop.
 
Here's a little video of the awesome Prima Outlet:

  LoveBug Creations- Life is Good

Pin It
Hello Lovebugs!!
 

It's my day with another new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 


I received this basic layout as a kit a few months ago at the Scrapbook Expo in Orange County but never put it together. I finally decided now was the time!


I thought the basis of this layout was just ho hum so I livened it up with some bright orange Mama's Mesh running along the border. It matches the bright orange title perfectly! I also added some fun sequins to add some bling. Now I just need to find the perfect photos and I am set.

  Kiwi Lane My 1st DT Post

Pin It
here's the badge.  Sorry I had my hubby Aaron e-mail it to you earlier so it might have showed in your junk mail.  Can you pull it from here?

This is my very first post as a Design Team Member for Kiwi Lane Designs. I am so excited to share my love of Kiwi Lane products with you all. I hope I can inspire you to create fun projects using the templates we all love so much.
 
Today I would love to share with you a simple but sweet layout of my youngest son and our family dog. They are such good friends. It's quite endearing!
 
The first thing I did was decide what papers and embellishments I would like to use for my layout. For me this is sometimes the hardest part. Then, comes the fun. Deciding which Kiwi Lane templates to use. I go through my collection and pick out a few I think will look great together and start to arrange them around my photos to see if I like the arrangment.
 
When I have something I like I start tracing, cutting, and inking. The great thing about using Kiwi Lane Designer Templates is you can change your mind easily. If you decide you don't like the way it is turning out you can change it.
 
Adding embellishments adds more fun to your layouts and brings the Kiwi templates to life!
Here I used some buttons and flowers to give my layout some flair.
Be sure to ink the edges of your paper too. It really changes the entire outlook of your layers. I used a CTMH chocolate Ink on my layout.
 
 For my borders I used 4 different Kiwi Lane Designer Tempates: Chevrons 1A and 1B, Chestnut Drive 1A and 1B, as well as Wacky 1T and Adventure 6.
 
My tag was created using Tag 3 as a base. But I altered it by trimming the top and the sides to make it fit my space better. I also added some LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon to the stick pin holding it in place and used CTMH stamps. All in all I'd say this turned out GREAT!
 
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!
