My project for the hop was so much fun to make. I created a single page layout in honor of the 4th of July. This could easily become a two page layout.
 I actually used 2 files from Creative Kutz. The title can be found here and the bears and embellies here. I used lots of pop dots to bring those fireworks to life!
 Closeup of my title and main firecrackers. I love the glitter paper I used, don't you?
 Lots of fireworks waiting to explode!! LOL!
 And of course a closeup of my cute little bears waiting to enjoy the celebration.

Next up is the talented and oh so sweet SUZANNE!

Note: I love to use Copics to color and alter my chipboard letters and elements. So much easier than pulling out the paint. And with so many colors to chose from the sky is the limit!!

  Let's Go Camping with GSS

Pin It
I am so excited because today we are off to enjoy the wilderness. Our theme is Camping! I love Camping!! So do my boys! I decided to create this layout using an older kit I had laying around and adding some awesome items to it (that can be found at GSS).
 Page 1
The little fox was created with the Cricut and added to this kit.
 Page 2
The little owl was also made with the Cricut and added to this kit.
 I just love this tent! Notice how I added the twine as the tent ties?
 And my bear's cute sign looks even better using Bo Bunny papers for the letters.

  School Bus Mini Album

Pin It
Can I just say I adore this?? You will too!! I promise! The last 2 weeks, BAP Projects from Creative Kuts were to make this adorably cute Bus mini Album. I will see many of these being made in my future. You can create them with any number of pages really. I did 6 pages plus covers. I still need to embellish my pages but I just couldn't wait to share  this with you all!
 These were cut with an SVG file that can be purchased at Creative Kuts for just $6.00, what a steal!
If you don't have a machine that can cut SVG files there are other formats available as well as patterns where you can them out by hand.
 Hope you enjoy my school bus! You can create a tour bus, a camper, a carpool van, so many different types of buses. The sky is  the limit!

I hope that you have enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. I love receiving comments and new followers. It means so much to me! So please feel free to drop me a note and follow my blog for more inspiration, giveaways, and tips.

  Doodlebug Designs Friday

Pin It
Today's theme is all about Doodlebug Designs, and my challenge from Ginger Snap Scraps was to create something using Doodlebug items. My son has been asking for a custom pencil holder to put on his desk.
 Perfect for the Doodlebug Designs Boys Only Paper Line and Doodle Twine!
The pencil cup I used was purchased from Oriental Trading Company. The first thing I did was cover it in Doodlebug paper.
Next I added another patterned paper along with his name, an airplane paper piecing from my Cricut cart Boys will be Boys. The finishing touch was tying 3 colors of Doodlebug Primary Twine around the entire thing, my son's favorite part.

The items I used from my favorite online store Ginger Scrap Snaps are:

Time for another DT Project for Creative Kuts.
I have created this adorable Spring Layout using Creative Kuts' file, Precious Love.
Page 1
 Page 2
Some closeups of my girls!
View showing you the 3D pop dots.
These darling fairies scream Spring and Flowers to me! So I paired them up with some patterned paper and diecuts from Storytellersclub. I used Bazzill cardstock and embellished them with jewels, inking, and pop dots for some great 3D pop! Be sure to visit Creative Kuts so you can see all the cute svg files and digital stamps they have in store for you! I am also entering this layout in the Homespun monthly Challenge.

I hope that you have enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. I love receiving comments and new followers. It means so much to me! So please feel free to drop me a note and follow my blog for more inspiration, giveaways, and tips.
