Let It Go with PPBN Designs

Spent the weekend cropping and worked on PPbn Designs.  I got all these pieces cut out and then got them put together today.  I can't wait to add the pictures and show these to my granddaughters.  They are 4, 3, and 2 so love Frozen.  I love these files from PPbn and they cut so nicely, even with glitter paper.  The layers fit together perfectly.  The membership of $7 a month is well worth it for all the adorable free files and exclusives we get. 
 Each day members get two free files plus a discount on all files.

The last of the "LOST" layouts

These layouts are ones I recently found from a crop I did awhile back.  

Used a Martha Stewart punch for edges of this one.  

This is from a Mambi stack I got at Michaels.  
Paper from my stash 

The My First Haircut file came from Silhouette 

Here we Go Again and Are we there yet from Silhouette 
For this one I used another stack I got at Michaels and all I had to do was mat the pictures.

More crop layouts I found including a few Disney pages

Here are more of my lost layout pictures I found recently.  Of course again they are of my grandkids.  
I made the title for this one with Silhouette. This is Micah and Kenzie 
 the Scrapbook store where I teach.

The Princess in Training and Castle for this one are from Silhouette.  
I cut out Kenzie in her wide array of princess outfits.  
For the next two I used Simple Stories paper.  
The first two pages are Kenzie and Micah dressed up 
for their Mickey Minnie birthday party last Fall.  

This is Kenzie and Micah at Disney with mom and dad.  Again using Simple Stories.

My first pop up box card and cake toppers

I finally made my first pop up box card using a Silhouette file.  I made three of these for my granddaughters teachers.   They were quick to put together and fun to do.  I used paper from my stash and assorted colors of Bazzil.  
I also cut out some cake toppers for a friend.  She sent me a picture and I was able to find files at Silhouette to make some very similar designs.  They are double sided and added them to sticks for her to add to the cake.  She was really happy with them.

More Crop layouts

These pages I recently found while trying to catch up with my photos.  Between having photos on my camera, phone and ipad sometimes things get  lost.  I completed these double page layouts at a crop recently and used my Silhouette on a few of these.  
Sorry for the glare.  

For this one I made the title for My First Haircut with my Silhouette.  
The Open Wide and Say Ahhhh are from Silhouette site.  

Grandchildren Welcome and parents by appointment is from Silhouette.

All I did on this one is mat the photos.  The banner and chalk design is the paper.  

Used some Tim Holtz paper and letters from my stash for the last two.  
Quick and easy.

Miss Kate Cuttables Magic Memories and a Mad Tea Party

I created these two layouts for Just Kitting Studio using Miss Kate Cuttable files
 The first is created using a file called Magic Memories and the second is A Mad Tea Party. 
Each double page layout is a completed layout which is glued 
and ready to add your Disney memory photos.  
 Disney files are always really popular since our store is in Southern California 
and we have a lot of Disney fans.

Six layouts I did at a crop recently

I love using my cutting machines but sometimes it is fun to create and just go with the paper.  Recently at a crop, at Just Kitting Studios, where I teach and design, I made the following layouts.

For the first layout I used some Prima paper we had at the store while I was cropping. I used some punches and ink.  Fussy cut some of the words and images then added some flowers and ribbon.
I haven't added pics to the firs tone yet.  
For the next pictures please excuse the shine on the pictures.  I gave them to my daughter before I realized how bad they were. 

These are pictures of my granddaughter Kenzie and grandson Micah.  
Paper is from my stash and not sure of company.  

This paper is Kaisercraft and some leftover pictures I had in my box.  
On this double page layout I used some Winter Bo Bunny from last year for Frozen pictures.  

The next two are done with more Kaisercraft paper.  
Comes with so many cute stickers and embellishments.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Minibook in a suitcase

This is a class/kit that will be available at Just Kitting Studio.  Being I live in a beach town I fell in love with the Graphic 45 By the Sea Paper the minute I saw it.  I decided to create a mini album and my daughter found these adorable little suitcases on clearance at Target I knew this would be fun to put the two things together.  I created an easel for the suitcase so that the album can be displayed standing up as well as use dimensional on it.  The easel folds down to close and the mini book is behind the easel.  
Here is the album set up on a table for display 
The hidden mini book

Inside pages.

Travel mini and layouts

This is a travel mini I was asked to create with chipboard and paper.  I used a leather like paper to make the handles and straps.  
Inside pages 

Then with the leftovers I cut out a camera and filmstrip from Silhouette for the first layout,  

For this one I cut out the suitcase and embossed it to give it an old look.  

Reorganizing my scrap room

Not too long ago was able to rearrange my scrap room.  My husband got a new computer and moved the computer cabinet in to another room which gave me a lot of added space.  I use my laptop so didn't need access to the new computer and we got a wireless printer so that can be in the other room too.  
Here is my desk space.   I have a cart from Ikea that I put either my Silhouette or E2 machine on when I am using them.  I keep carts, scraps and other things in the skinny drawers below.  I can move this away if not using it.  

This is end of craft cabinet.  I added my Ikea metal wall rack.  The chalkboard I made with an old frame and some paint.  

Here is my paper and my E-2.  The wire paper rack I got when the store I teach at changed to a new format.  

New wire rack, ribbon, Tim Holtz tool kit. On the changing table under wire rack I keep embossing folders, Cuttlebug, etc. 

Craft Cupboard 

All new added space for buttons, embellishments and my two frames that 
have been sitting on the floor.

Birthday mini banner

This is a little Mini birthday banner I made for use where space is limited.  
I cut the pieces out with Elegant Edges, Storybook, and Pretty Pennants.
