Hawaii Layout

ALOHA!!! Today I worked on one more layout from our Hawaii trip from the beginning of this year. I used the "Aloha Kids" paper peicing file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.
 The pattern paper I used in my layout is from a YouTube friend, Lori, aka elemeniah.
She sent me a bunch of "Hawaii" paper quite awhile ago.
 My title was created using My Creative Times "Lower Case Fun Dies"

Merry Christmas to all my fans!!!!
I made four gift card holders for my in-laws. The gift card holders, scallop circle, and circle are all from the Silhouette Studio. The images are from KaDoodle Bug Designs file "Santa's Workshop Crew". I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo and placed the images inside of the circles. I love this feature and it is a true time-saver.
I added some twine in the colors of red and green to finish it off.
 The gift cards are perfect you don't need to adjust them at all! Just make sure that you have a thicker cardstock so that it's pretty sturdy. I used DCWV The Christmas Combo stack.

M&M Scrapbook Layout

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a layout I made using the "Mmmm Mmmm Good" file from Paper Piecings by Nikki.
We took a little trip over to Minnesota to go to the Mall of America (it's about a 3.5 hour drive) to do a little shopping and lo and behold they have their own M&M store. We were taking in the sights of the huge mall and we saw a photo opportunity so Mikayla went on over to the Blue M&M and I snapped a quick photo with my phone.
The M&M pattern paper is from my good friend Colleen Duffy Hathaway. I was mentioning this layout to her and she just happened to have the perfect paper for it. I tried to call my local Michaels and they didn't have it so she sent it to me. Thank you Colleen!!

Digital Delights by Louby Loo

Welcome to another Design Team project for Digital Delights by Louby Loo!!
 I decided to make a winter card using "Post Girl Pat", which you can find HERE if your interested.
 I added some snowflakes from a border punch.
Then of course jazzed it up with STICKLES!!!
 I added a pom-pom to the top of her snow hat.
Also, don't you just love her twine bow around her ponytails?
I love how she turned out and I even made her my profile picture on my Facebook Page:

The Bride and Groom Layout

Afternoon my friends!
I made my very first layout for my wedding album and as of right now it is sitting in a shadow box right above my computer. I am very proud of the way it turned out. As most of you know I am not the flowery type although I might just dive right in, lol.
I used the "Tie the Knot Bears" from KaDoodle Bug Designs for a my bride and groom. I do not see there being a lot of bears in my album, but this is just the start.

The Bride & Groom title was created in Silhouette Studio
(Font: Adobe Caslon Pro Bold at 55.6 pts)

 The flowers are Prima Flowers that I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
 - Silver Sugar. I also added some peals to the flower petals. I found some silver accent pieces that were on a stem, cut them off and hot glued them to my layout.

 I added some pearls to her dress and gave her some "diamond" earrings.
I finished the layout off by adding a satin ribbon and leaving the tails longer
on purpose and glueing them to the layout so that they stay in position. I added another flower and pearl.
