Our Walks

I know, another layout with my Tucker, same walk too but I loved the pop of red from his leash and wanted to go with that color scheme again.  I am trying to use a lot of my products instead of buying and then just letting them sit there so I used the same triangle paper I loved from the Studio Calico Sandlot kit too.

I know this one looks a little busy but that's why I kept the embellishing minimal and used lots of patterned paper.  The silk screen was a fun part along with the big bold red title, all fun items from the August Sandlot Scrapbook Kit and September Whitman Add On.

I created more dimension by distressing the edges with my fingernails so the items popped up.  I adhered the title with my roller adhesive but only where the letters were red so it didn't really show.  

I added the silk screen with pop dots.  I used the color theory Mint acrylic paint and loved how it came out.  You can see more details on using the Silk Screen here.

 I love being back home and hanging out with our family pup, Tucker, I miss that little guy everyday.

You would think we go on nice easy walks but nope, he pretty much refuses to walk and just wants to run.  However, I like the exercise so I go for it.  We are both exhausted after we're done but trust me he is in heaven, happier than can be.  He should know by now that I'm going to document our "walk"

The awesome cut files for Studio Calico by Hello Forever.  I added some floral paper with the reds.  I love Silhouette Cuts but I find myself being lazy a lot and not using it as much as I should.  I'm going to try to use it more since I do really love it.

Just Keep Swimming

I used the awesome My Mind's Eye vellum from their Necessities Collection .  It's hard to capture the amazing gold but you can see it a little shining in some of the pictures.  

I stitched the vellum on top of a white piece of card stock so you could see the gold dots pop.  I kept photos down towards the bottom of the page, I really wanted those gold dots to take up a large space.

Here you can see the gold reflecting in in the light really well, this vellum is amazing.  I added messy stitching, some stickers and of course a gold Studio Calico Atlantic gold star.

I love brads and this "just keep swimming" sticker couldn't have been more perfect for a pool layout.
