Take a trip to Paris or a Carousel ride layouts

Here are two more layouts I created for the LSS to display as samples.  I love being able to create with paper I might not normally need for my own personal layouts.  Although I definitely think I need to buy some of the carousel paper for the grandkids albums.  Sorry the pictures are so blurry.  Guess it wasn't a good camera day for me.

Graphic 45 July and August class with A Place in Time

Saturday I taught the Graphic 45 A Place in Time Class at the LSS.  There are 12 ladies taking these classes every other month.  However due to vacations, illness and other issues we had only 4 ladies attend on Saturday.  Had a great time with these four ladies and they all completed their July and August layouts.  
This is the July layout from the Graphic 45 designers.  
I cut the star from A Child's Year Cricut  Cart. 

This is the page I designed to go with it from the left over cutouts.  


This is the Graphic 45 designers page for August.
I cut the flowers from Flower Shoppe Cricut Cartridge. 


This is the page I designed to go with it from the leftover cutouts.

All about Boys layouts

I guess it might be a good thing if I am so busy creating and scrapping that I forget to post on my blog.  I have posted a lot of the Disney kits that  I have been creating for the LSS where I teach.  So today I am sharing some layouts I did for the store for samples.  This is such great paper for older boys.

Disney Mini Accordion Book

This is my last Disney post for now.  This is a fold out mini Accordion book.  This is the cover.  

And here are some of the pages when the accordion is pulled out.  
Sorry the pictures aren't that great.  Some of the paper is really shiny and threw off the camera lighting.  I hope you can get the idea.

It's All About the Princess- Disney Princess Layouts

Being I have three precious granddaughters I have to have Disney Princess layouts.  I used Once Upon a Princess and Princess Party as well as Mickey Font and Mickey and Friends,  
The next two are using a Princess sticker sheet.  
I used Elegant Edges for the pink with silver polka dot center and then cut it in half.

Disney Cruise layouts

I wish I could say these layouts are for a cruise I have done or was about to do.  But heavy sigh  no Disney cruise in my near  future.  I have been making Disney kits for my Scrapbook store and these are two more of the double page layouts I have designed.   
At least if I do go on a Disney cruise someday I will have my pages ready to cut out.  LOL

Disney Time and Disney Cruise Layouts

Recently I was asked to make Disney kits for the Scrapbook store where I teach classes.  In the past few weeks I have made 12 double page layout kit designs and a mini book design.  After designing them I have cut and bagged 10 kits of each design.  These go on sale this weekend at my Scrapbook store Scrapbook Blessings in Newbury Park, California.  
This is the first one.  I used Mickey and Friends and Mickey Font.  
Second one is for those looking for Disney cruise layouts 
More layouts to come.

New Adorn It layouts

Besides being blessed to teach at my local Scrapbook store I also get to make samples for displays with new paper lines as they come in.  This is one of the new lines from Adorn It.  I love the colors, the flowers and the phrases and titles.  

I took another Copic class

Yesterday was my second Copic class with the new teacher at the local Scrapbook store.  We made this cute little foldover card and box to put our card in.  The stamp is a Magnolia Stamp and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I am really enjoying these classes and can't wait till the next one.

I finally used my Silhouette and made a purse

I have had my Silhouette machine since early Spring but haven't tried it yet. That is until today.  This week at SVG Cuts they were having a challenge to download and make a purse using their file and then you can get a gift card for 6.99.  I figured this was the time to try out my Silhouette and my new Designer Edition Software.  So here is my purse 
I am sure now I have tried it out it will get used a lot more.  :)

Cards made from Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar

Yesterday I shared two double page layouts I made with the new paper line Bohemian Bazaar by Graphic 45.  When I finished with those I used my scraps to make 4 cards.   I love the bright fun graphics.  All I had to do was add a little ribbon, gems or flowers and I had some bright fun cards.

Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar Layouts

Graphic 45 has a wonderful new fun and bright paper line called Bohemian Bazaar.  I made these two double page layouts with the paper line.  I used Elegant Edges and Artiste as well as some wood cutout pieces that I painted to highlight the bold colors.  I also fussy cut some of the flowers on the paper and pop dotted them to highlight pictures and added a few gems here and there.

Copic class I took using Wee stamps

Wow I can't believe it has been 10 days since I last posted.  I decided a month ago that it was time to drop my Design Teams for awhile and focus on my teaching at Scrapbook Blessings in Newbury Park.  With that and babysitting two of my 4 year grandchildren I was wearing myself really thin.  Well every since I made that decision things have been crazy.  More on that later this week.   So one of my goals for this Summer was to learn to use my Copic markers.  I thought I would have to take some online classes but low and behold we got a new teacher at the scrapbook store and I took her first class Saturday.  I learned so much and am so thrilled with my card and tag I made.  I have the second class this Wednesday so will post that later too.

First we made this card using a Wee stamp.  At first I didn't know if I would be able to do the details but found it easier.  I know its not perfect but I am so thrilled!!!!!!
After we did the card we tried the stamp for the tag on our own.  I am in love with these adorable little stamps.  Can't wait till the next class.  We added a very thin coat of glitter to wings and flowers to make them shine.
