the Good Life w/ Kreaxions

Today is reveal day for Just Imagine/ Kreaxions punches. The theme is summer and I had the perfect photo.

This is my gorgeous daughter out in the water playing with her youngest brother. I cropped the photo into be just her and the water/colors were just perfect for this fantastic photo.
I used Bo Bunny's Key Lime line for this along with punches 311, 909 & 912 from Kreaxions.
Here's some close ups:

You Rock card w/ Kreaxions

I have a cool card to share with you today!

I used the awesome Punch #912 from Kreaxions for this card. I love how this punch can have a different look depending on how you use it.

For this card I punched this blue cardstock, lining up the corner punched wedges so that I had this cool border piece.

I then used the blue pieces that were punched out, along with some orange ones I punched just for this, to decorate my sentiment up a bit.

I finished it up with a bit of bling in the center of one of them.

Capture Love w/ My Scraps & More

Happy Scrappy Friday!
I hope you're all having a great day.
Today I have this fun sketch from My Scraps & More sketches to share with you:

And here is the page I made using it:
 I LOVE this photo of my youngest son and his dad.
I was doing photos of my family and saw this and snapped a picture. Seriously perfect!

I pulled out an old kit that had some fun embellies in it and got to work with the sketch.
I started with a kraft background, misted it with white dylusions, let it dry and then added some gelatos with a heart stencil. I just rubbed the gelatos onto a napkin and then used the napkin to rub onto the layout through the stencil. 

After you get the base of the layout put together following the sketch, it's super fun to embellish. For the most part I stuck with the sketch but added or changed here and there where it fit my needs/wants best.

These fun embellishments I used for my title were the main reason I grabbed this kit.
Perfect title to go with a perfect photo.

Summer Kisses w/ Love My Tapes

 Hey! I'm super excited to share this layout with you today.
I totally love the way it turned out!!

This little guy of mine has totally stole my heart. I love that he's always watching for me and doing little things to get my attention. 

I used 2 different tapes from Love My Tapes on this layout.
I used the Circle tape around my main portion of photos as an extra layer of "patterned paper."

You can see in this photo where I cut the edges of the tape at each corner to make them lay smooth against each other. Then I added the Heart tape above that layer. The Doodled Hearts were perfect for this layout, adding just the right touch of whimsy and feeling w/o overwhelming the summer feel I have going on.

These papers from Bo Bunny were really fun to work with and I've added some cool Freckled Fawn enamel stars and dots.

I loved these photos so much I put them on a contrasting mat color and then popped them off my page with foam adhesive. I followed this sketch from ACOT.

Have a great day!

Friend Gift w/ Love My Tapes and Kreaxions

Today I want to share with you a cute gift I made for an amazing friend.

I took this fun milk bottle and filled it with Reese's Pieces. 
I thought the little quote would be perfect because I really feel like my friend is helping me keep it all together lately. Good thing for good friends right?

I started with the polka dot background pattern and added the fun Red Hearts tape to the top and bottom. Then I used the awesome Tape Runner to keep it tight around the bottle. 
Then I decorated the front and added a bit of Chevron tape to either side of my title.

Last I added a bit of the heart tape to my tag, to help it blend with the gift and punched the top with a Kreaxions punch.

Thanks for stopping by!
