This week has totally flown by way too fast and I've not had much time to do anything! I think I've only been in my craft room a couple times this week which is too sad.
But I am excited to finally share this page I created a little while back using the Lovely Day collection!! It's up on the Dear Lizzy blog - hope you'll pop by and check it out!
Hope your week has been awesome and your weekend even better! Friday here and I am counting down the minutes until I get to go home (86 as of this minute....right now, lol).
Take care, Em xo
Finally sitting down to share this layout. I actually finished this last weekend but didn't get the photo's done until yesterday. So slack I know.
This one came about because I'm trying to use the Cameo Silhouette more. I've even moved it closer to my actual work desk so that I'll be more inclined to turn it on and use it! Moving the cameo means I need the laptop over my side too (so less desk space) but the cameo works better hooked up to the laptop - for some annoying reason the cameo wont actually connect every time to my desktop (and I have to turn it off/on 10+ times until it does); hence my the reason for my love/hate relationship with it. HA!
This is a cut file that I picked up from The Cut Shoppe a little while ago. I've been getting a few files from Ashley lately so be prepared to see me using cut files in more layouts ;)
I'm still in love with the colours of Lovely Day and I'm smitten with those little flags and trying to find an excuse to put them on every layout at the moment.
For my title I went with one of the chipboard and grouped it with a cut file I created to make it read "Today you are seven". The font I used for that is called Jenthill (super cute isn't it - not a freebie though!). I'm a sucker for buying script fonts.
And then I added the banner! I love the banners! Did I mention that already?! I changed this one a little, I took off the bottom flag (the green clashed with the other colours I'd gone with) and I added one of the puffy stickers instead. Kinda love how it turned out..and the colours match ;)
As usual I just typed my journaling up on the computer and printed it out. I keep wanting to include my own handwriting more but every time I try it I only end up disliking the page, which is a complete waste, so I think I'll be sticking with the typed look.
Love the soft, dreamy colours of the page - not too girly (because my brother would die if I put him on a all-pink page) but still pretty enough because it is a page out my niece after all!
And that's it! I really do love creating pages using cut-files and I'm hoping now it's closer to me I'll get into the habit of using it all the time!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your weekend is a great one! Take care, Em xo
Hey friends! Been super slack lately but March is always crazy for us. Work always picks up, then we have Zack's birthday, change of sports for Zack and it's just gogogogogo. I'm looking forward to a little slower pace come April ;)
I have been creating though; just not having much time to photograph/edit/upload them. But I did get this one done so I figured I'd pop here and share before I get distracted by something else I need to get done, haha.
I set myself a challenge when creating this one - don't use white cardstock for my background. And I did it! Ok, so maybe I went with the most neutral pattern but...no white cardstock in sight! WIN!
The rose gold featured throughout Lovely Day is so gorgeous in person! I love the shine it adds to the page. It's tricky to photograph however lol.
This page actually started with the flags. I've been hoarding them and that has to stop! They're so cute and add a great dimension to the page. Plus...rose gold!!!
The title was originally just gong to be "love" but then those thickers have more rose gold on them so naturally they made their way onto the page. I positioned the "u" on the bottom of the flag which meant I had to add foam dots behind the "y" and "o" too (so they were the same depth).
The bunny has absolutely nothing to do with the theme of the page, but it's cute AND has rose gold on it. You picking up on my love of the rose gold yet?
All the colours and elements of Lovely Day are just so yummy. Everything works so well together and it's such a breeze to create with.
And if you love rose gold like me, well, you're gonna be in heaven. Pops of it everyyyywhhhere. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Hope your March is being a little kinder to you; sorry I've been so absent around here and I'd like to say I'll be more consistent but....well...you know me ;) Thank you so much for stopping by though, I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by this space! Take care, Em xo
