I've been rotating through different colletions lately so I thought I should work with my Maggie Holmes supplies. I went through my cut files until this one from Paper Issues caught my eye. I thought the flowers were similar to the paper. I'm sure glad I like the final product because it sure took a long time!
I debated putting some white gesso behind the flowers but I chickened out. I used thread instead.

I have so many birthday pictures and never get around to scrapping them, so the More Than Words challenge gave me the push I needed. The challenge is to scrap about birthdays and to use two tags on your layout. I also used a sketch from Stuck Sketches.
It's so nice having cute nephew pictures to scrapbook. Here he is eating a lemon. I decided to use the sketch at Let's Get Sketchy. The colours in his shirt made me think of the Amy Tangerine collections and I used mostly Hustle and Heart.
I wanted to use the current sketch at Stuck Sketches which uses 4 photos. I rarely have 4 photos of the same event so I found these lake photos. I have lots of beach supplies from Paper House Productions so I decided to use the Lake Life Collection. The diamonds at the top of the sketch made me think of this triangle cut file from Paper Issues. I cut a few extra triangles to back in a darker brown to add some more interest.
Here is the sketch:

I'm trying to go through my stash so with Valentine's Day coming up I pulled out the Crate Paper Heart Day collection. I paired it with a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and I'm liking the final result. I think the patterns in the sketch made me think of the Heart Day collection. I really wanted to keep the white space in the sketch as it is something I'm not good at but I couldn't resist adding more ric rac. And how cute is my nephew!!
I'm back at Sketches In Thyme with a Christmas layout this month. My daughter loved her stocking presents so it was fun to capture them on this layout.
Here is the sketch:
I opened random snowflake cut files and drew circles the same sizes as the sketch. I moved them around until I found snowflakes and circles that looked good together. I welded them so the machine would cut snowflake frames. I used textured cardstock to make it more interesting. The smaller snowflakes are from punches. I used ribbon to separate my background papers and some glitter glue to make the snowflakes sparkle. The snowflakes ended up too big to all be on one side of the layout so I spread them across.

Hello everyone. I had some time this weekend to just make something for fun. I used the Pink Paislee Turn the Page collection for the first time. It's been so cold here, it was nice to make something summery.
I debated putting some journaling 'on the rug' but it is actually fuzzy paper so I figured no matter which way I try, it would be messy and look out of place. The Silhouette store had a sale last month so I used a pile of cut files. I had trouble choosing a background paper but the pink makes things pop without clashing too much!
