Hey Kid!

Today I am sharing a fun layout I created with Pink Paislee Hey Kid.  This collection is so fun and is perfect for capturing childhood.

I have a bunch of pictures of my little guy when he was very sick and had a feeding tube.  I wanted to tell a story of happiness and hope.  At the time it was hard, really hard.  But I can’t tell you how often he was still able to smile.  That smile is what got us through a lot of hard days.

I am so blessed.



The background has a few die cuts in it so I layered coordinating papers from the collection to show through.  On one circle die cut, in the lower right corner, I made a little pocket of wood veneers and buttons.



I made the frame from chipboard then covered it with red card stock and washi tape.  I love using frames.  I love using frames even more when they bring attention to an area but they do not frame a picture.



I embellished with die cuts from the ephemera pack and brads from my stash.  Speaking of stashes I just love little mustaches!   I finished it off with some stitching on various spots around the page. DSC_0423

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to smile!



Friday Spotlight-Pink Paislee Solstice Collection

Today’s spotlight is on the beautiful Solstice collection by Pink Paislee.  The colors is this collection are just beautiful! And there are anchors!  I am a little obsessed with anchors and all things nautical.  I don’t have a boat, I don’t go boating, and I don’t particularly love being in open water…but I love all things nautical!

First up the layout.  I used various papers from the 12×12 and 6×6 pads to add some layers around a photo of one of my little guys at the lake.  He just has the cutest face!  I used various letters from my thickers stash to create a title that would surround the photo.   For my embellishment clusters I used some of the puffy stickers from the collection, washi tape from my stash and a little wood chip.  To finish off the layout I flicked some white paint across the page.

Two very simple cards.  I challenged my self to only spend 15 min on each card.  That may seem like a lot of time but I am a bit of an indecisive crafter!
