Simple Stories: Our Story is My Favorite

With four children and several commitments, like most couples, my husband and I can have a hard time finding one-on-one time with one another. But the great thing is when we do have time together we just pick up right where you left off. I feel lucky and blessed to have built a life with my best friend and wanted to record my feelings on this page using the beautiful Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection.

The florals in this collection are incredible! I fussy-cut the largest floral from the Always Be True paper to accent the top left corner of my photo.

I cut out the “LOVE” tiles and the “Every Love Story” quote from the 4×4 Elements paper to use as a title and subtitle, accenting them with Bits & Pieces die cuts and stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet.

I placed everything on a large block of Love Day paper (pink text) and then capped off the top and bottom with strips of the black and white ticking stripe from the 4×6 Vertical Elements paper. I cut the bottom strip with a pair of large scalloped scissors that I have in my stash. I then added computer-generated journaling strips below.

Close to My Heart: Hooray for Today

Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another video featuring the second layout I created using the Close to My Heart January 2019 Kits.

Each monthly kit includes two double-page layouts with the instructions, stickers, die cuts, and sheet protectors to complete those layouts. I used most of the stickers and die cuts on the layout I posted on Monday. So, for today’s page I decided to create my own quilled flower embellishments using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts Dies. Watch the video to see how!

HOORAY FOR TODAY

I also used the title as inspiration for all of the circles across the top of the page — I wanted it to feel like a party! Can  you see where I added stamping, embossing, and dimensional dots, as well?!

Echo Park Paper: Baby Girl Bathtub Gift Set

Welcoming a new baby into the world is so much fun! After a ten year spread, I just became an aunt again. Isn’t that exciting?!!

When I was thinking about what kind of project to create with the new Echo Park Paper Hello Baby Girl collection, I thought about one of my favorite things about newborn babies … how clean and sweet they smell after having their bath! So, I decided to create a Bath Tub Gift set that any new parent is sure to appreciate.

I cut the bathtub from the star patterned side of the Girl Clothesline paper using my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file by Snapdragon Snippets (Design #267555 in the Silhouette Design Store). I then lined it with the yellow side of the Girl Alphabet Blocks paper. The rim and feet of the bathtub are created from the Light and Dark Pink papers of the Hello Baby Girl Solids Kit.

I decorated the side of the tub with a cute phrase fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I added a die cut teddy bear using the Sweet Teddy Bear Die Set along with a few stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. Enamel dots add dimension to the feet of the tub.

Next, I added my goodies to the inside of the tub. First, I filled it with white paper shred, then added an assortment of baby washcloths, baby lotion, baby wash, baby shampoo, and diaper rash cream.

I trimmed the pointy end from a couple of bamboo skewers, and then tucked them in among the goodies to create a banner across the top of the tub. The “BABY” pennant shapes are from the Ephemera pack. I punched the triangular pennants from the Onesies paper, then strung them all together on white twine between the two bamboo posts. Anything looks more festive with a banner, don’t you agree?!

Wrap the entire tub in cellophane for gift-giving, or place the tub on a cake plate for a cute centerpiece for a baby shower! Either way, the new mom in your life is going to love having some new baby bath supplies on hand!

Doodlebug Design: Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Like most people, I have a deep weakness for chocolate, so of course I love all of the adorable images of chocolates in the French Kiss collection!

A couple of years ago my son went to a high school Halloween Dance with his date dressed as Forrest Gump and Jenny. I took these cute pictures of him before he left and decided to use the Chocolate Box Shape Sprinkles and the Box of Chocolates digital cut file to recreate a larger version of the Sweetheart Doodlepop sticker from the collection.

I measured the chocolate shape sprinkles and then resized the Box of Chocolates cut file to fit them. It was so much fun filling up my heart shaped box! If only I could take a taste! They look so delicious!

I used the Lily White Abigail Letter Stickers to spell out my title. I placed the top half of the title on vellum clouds created with the Clouds cut file. I resized and reproportioned the banner from the Boy In Airplane cut file to house the word “chocolate.”

I added more vellum clouds to the top of the layout along with a few Heart Throb Shape Sprinkles. So cute!

I placed one of my photos on the red card from the French Kiss Cards & Envelopes. I love the way the bracket shape adds a fun design element to this part of the layout. I tucked in a few flower and chocolate die cuts from the Odds & Ends pack in the lower corner and then added a few Chit Chat phrases to the bottom.

I loved playing with the cute chocolate images in this collection so much! Next, I think I will make a page documenting my LOVE of chocolate. What will you use them for?
