Spreading good cheer

Happy Monday! OK, so I know Christmas is a few months away. I had a few tradeshow assignments that were Christmas themed and then I was gifted this stamp and die set and just couldn't resist putting them to work once my assignments were all done...

How fun are these Gingerbread people. I mean really? This is my first time working with a Paper Smooches stamp and die set and I loved it. I used water color paint on water color paper. (Really digging the water color inspiration of late.) I might go back and make the candy canes sparkly, but I am happy with the creative fun I had!

First Summer *Pink Paislee*

Happy Friday! I had a layout up on the Pink Paislee blog yesterday. This month we are featuring the Solstice series and there is a printable PDF with every layout! Check it out!

Here's what I created for my post:

I used the Trunk Bay patterned paper as my inspiration for the colours (mulit-colored triangles). I couldn't resist cutting out a really big sun -don't ask me, I've just always wanted to and finally can ;)

I inked the edges of the sun to help it stand out on the page. 
The gold embellishments throughout the collection are lovely! And now you can get cut files to cut out that lovely 'summer' over and over!

Learn to dive *Jillibean Soup*

Hello! I have lots of creations to share, but not until later (Boo!).  I can share a page that was up on the Jillibean Soup blog last week.

I put the Spicy Social Soup and some Sightseeing Stew to work and this is what I created:


Our daughter loved the learn to dive program. The pool is closed for renovations this summer and fall but she is counting down to the winter session ;) We're all looking forward to it starting.

Summer and Pirates -Oh My! *Pink Paislee*

Hello! This month over at Pink Paislee, we are sharing layouts made exclusively with the gorgeous new summer collection called Solstice. There will be 20 different layouts available with printable page instructions for each! Here's what I created:

The gold formed stickers are really cool! I used the triangles from the package, as you can see below, to add a finishing touch to my page.

The banner pieces in the Ephemera package are so versatile. And of course, I had to include a gold anchor in the mix!
The whole collection is really fun, with lots of great little pieces and details!
Thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!

Good day! I had a page up at SEI last week. The new collection, Azalea is such a pretty line. The A-sides are perfect for girls and the B-sides are great for boys. Really a versatile collection. I have a page to share today:

Love the fun sticker page that comes with the collection. Some really, inspirational thoughts!

Thanks so much for visiting!
