Tucker

A collage isn't something I normally put together but I loved it thanks to inspiration from Kristina Nicolai-White I decided to give it a try.


Little layers of patterned paper, a few enamel dots and buttons, and a simple tag.


Another view...you can see the messy stitching I added along the left side too for some added texture.


Thanks for stopping by <3

Paradise in Aruba

For this layout I was completely inspired by Corrie Jones.  I absolutely love the large photo idea and the negative space of the title.  Here's my take!



I used the lovely Kraft and Gold Background paper for that sand feel.  I die cut the title with my Cameo and added paper underneath that I watercolored in random places in blues, greens and yellows.

Islamorada

More fun bright colors and lots of little embellishments on this layout, yet again, from a vacation last year.  Amy Tangerine's Plus One Collection was perfect for this page!


Lots of fun bits, enamel dots, badges, patterned paper, vellum, veneer.  I had fun with all the layers here.
 

Another peak to get a feel for all the dimension created on this layout.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love

I had fun using some scraps and some lovely Dear Lizzy vellum I've been hoarding.  Tropical vacations with palm trees just scream bright fun colors right!? 


I kept the embellishing to a minimum as I used more patterned paper on this layout. 


A view of the dimension created.  Love the Amy Tangerine thickers from Plus One!

Thanks for stopping by and following along <3

This moment

I've been holding onto these pictures for too long and I'm happy I'm getting them scrapped.  I really like including multiple photos on a page and this layout does just that.  I die cut the "this" part of my title and played with watercolors, always fun.


A full view of the layout.  I used a transparency I have been hoarding as my base under my photos.  


 More dimension with layers, veneer, enamel dots and stickers.

Hello Adventure

I really do love grid layouts and being able to layer and treat each square as it's own little mini spot to embellish.  I tried to keep this one more simple with the embellishments.


 A full look at the layout here.  I used the awesome Dear Lizzy paper for my background and then a few scraps from my stash for all the squares. 


A closer look to see the dimension created with enamel dots and the middle square that used pop dots for the plane sticker.  You can also see the little circle veneer that I framed the globe sticker with.  I used a teal dauber to color the veneer.

I could get used to this life

I finally went on a little scrapping spree and got some layouts done from a vacation earlier last year which makes me happy so today I'm sharing one.


 I've never been a big fan of yellow but decided to make it work and I like the result.  I die cut the title with my cameo in white cardstock and used watercolors to make the title yellow.


I used a black pen to outline the title in a dot "stitch" look and love how it makes the title pop!


 Another watercolor heart cut with my cameo and some enamel dots for dimension.
