DIY Embellishments with Laura

Hi there!

Laura here today with a tutorial I created for a fun and easy embellishment, I hope you like it.

I was inspired by the Jillibean Soup wood sprinkles that come in so many beautiful colour combos.

So let's gather our supplies: you will need some buttons in your choice of colours and sizes (don't forget some wood buttons, they look great as well), a variety of pattern paper scraps, a small circle punch(or die cutting tool) and Glossy Accents.

Punch out a circle of patterned paper that fits nicely into the centre of your button, then adhere it into place by adding a small amount of Glossy Accents.

Now top off your paper circle with a good even coat of Glossy Accents and set it aside to dry.

This is how I used one of my DIY embellishments, I love that I can make these up quickly - to match any collection or kit I am working with-and I can make up several when I open a collection pack and they are pretty much ready to add to my page by the time I am done..  They have a nice bit of shine so they look a little fancier than just a plain or button.

Thank you for visiting!

Boys Unite With Lynn

Good Morning! It's Lynn here today and I'm sharing my last project with the Sept/Oct kit! Say what? It's almost time for another kit? Fall needs to slow down a little, I'm not ready for winter yet! So let's stop thinking about snowflakes and get on to the layout! lol

For this layout I wanted to just create and have fun. I had no plan in mind when I started but you know me... I get out all those embellies and just start sticking!! All the stickers were so cute I wanted to use them all. The border sticker I cut into strips and put some at the top and bottom adding a little something extra to tie all those stickers together! I hope you all had fun with your kits and I can't wait to see whats in the next one! have a few more days to play with the sketches for Sept/ Oct. The links are on the side bar. Have an awesome day everyone!!

OUR RAD GUY with Laura

Hi there!

It's Laura here and it's my turn to share a project today, I have another page created with the awesome September/October kit.

I just love that there were plenty of papers and embellies in this kit to create some fun back to school pages, but also some generic pages too.  I love to scrap everyday photos of my boys.  This is my middle son, Jon, looking all handsome!

Here are some close up shots...

I hope you will join us here as there is always lots to inspire you and a monthly challenge, too!

Thanks for visiting!

School Days and Free Cut File with Lynn

Good Morning! Well it's Friday so TGIF Everyone!! 

I had this small photo of Ryan and I thought it would be perfect for some of the school embellies I had left from the kit. A little ripped border, a little stenciling with chalk ink and I was ready to roll. I really love to tuck embellishments in a cluster so again I was having fun! Well, I guess I'm always having fun when I'm creating. I also created the tickets and title which I have below to share with you all for those school photos I know your ready to scrap! ( Well maybe some of you are already done those).  I hope you enjoy the file and I will have another one for you next month too. The file is a Studio 3 file, I'm working on learning how to convert those to SVG's for you gals that may not have a cameo!

Just click on the photo for the download.
