Fancy This with Live Beautfully

Fancy This with Live Beautifully

Here’s the 3rd of 9 layouts with the scrapbooking workshop that you can get free with a $25.00  purchase of the workshop supplies.  See supply lists here.  This is a bright, fun layout using the My Girl Compliments, where the title “Fancy” comes from:

On the black paper, the colors of these compliments really pop.  Creating a few clusters with the different stickers to create dimension along with a few heart cut with our heart thin cuts from scraps.  I combined both the gold and silver glitter paper

Using scraps to cut the hearts out is another part of my mission this month of using my scraps up.  The hearts really add to the layout and the clusters.

 

You can see the hearts, both the green ombre paper and the gold glitter paper .  They make a foundation for the title and the rest of the cluster.  I did add some Pearl Platinum Stickles to add a little extra dimension.  Put 3D foam tape (thin) under “Fancy”.  I’m going to add another banner that says “that” just off the “Fancy” title.

This layout shows the versatility of the Live Beautifully paper in that it does not “need” to be a formal event.   This be a great layout for a little girl playing dress up or a in a uniform of some sort.  SG in her new karate uniform,  now a yellow belt, will work well with this.

Use the zip strip to create the borders across the pictures.  Great way to use the scraps and dress up the pictures.

This cluster I love. SG does make my heart shine. I do so enjoy watching her work hard and overcome the tough challenges in life.  Testing for her yellow belt was a challenge and she did it.

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Here’s the first layout of this wonderful workshop that you can get free when you order $25.00 or more on my website!  A list of the supplies is available on my website here. The pictures don’t really do the layout justice.

I made my pages with gold and silver glitter paper because, initially, I only had the silver glitter paper.  When I got the gold glitter paper in, I decided to add some extra hearts in. In the end, I like having a combo instead.  The CTMH heart dies make it really easy to create different sized hearts with the same shape (hearts can have different shapes). Size and layering are important in having this work well.

The title of the pages comes from the My Girl set of compliments:

This is really a fun set of compliments.  Full of goodness and sayings you can use beyond a girl.  I think this is a great graduation saying.  What kid at high school graduation isn’t happy, to at least be done with school, and has big dreams?  SG is going to be testing for her yellow belt and is super excited.  I can’t wait to capture her face when she passes her test!

 

Here’s the 2nd page:

More hearts and and titles with fun glitter embellishments.  The black paper with the white rose outline looks really good on the black cardstock.  I like how the papers pop on black.  Don’t forget to use your zip strips!  Little borders can add a lot to the page.

Dream with NSM

Dream with NSM

Dream is the 2nd layout with the National Scrapbooking Month (NSM).  It might be my favorite, I’ve not decided.

I just love these butterflies in the kit.  They are so beautiful and when you roll the wings just a bit, you create dimension.  It looks amazing.

The title is part of the kit along with the butterflies.  Creating little clusters of butterflies draw your attention to the title.  I like the way the “D” is in a different color than the rest of the letters and all of the letters have different colors/textures in them

The black background with the rose pattern in white on it is stunning.  It’s very elegant would be amazing as a wedding background for formal pictures.  It sets off the butterflies.

On more picture of the butterflies.  You can see how I’ve rolled the wing of the grey and black butterflies and then layered them on top of each other to create the cluster and dimension.

Don’t forget you can get this kit for FREE when you join CTMH this month!

Smile for NSM

Smile for NSM

“Smile” is the first layout from the Live Beautifully Cut Above kit.  This kit is $44.95 with a lot of the cutting done for you.  This will make a fantastic present for anyone you know getting married.   What a great gift to wrap up an album with finished layouts for the lucky couple to ad pictures to.

Look at how beautiful the gold “smile” is on the page.  “Being happy never goes out of style”.  Your journal block is already there for you.  All you have to do is piece together the the center of the layout. The assembly of the kit should take about an hour without interruptions.

The elegance of this layout can be used to feature a wedding or prom or you can use when you’ve captured some amazing smiles.  I love the circle feature of the text on the paper.  Did I mention that it’s already down on the page for you?

You have the half circle sentiment already on the paper.  After you add the picture area and mat, you can create a cluster down on the bottom right of the pictures to lead into or continue the circle.

These elements require no cutting.  =)   I wanted to show case this paper a little more.  I love the gold embossed outline of the roses on the white paper.  It’s beautiful.

Now that I’ve shown off the first layout of the Live Beautifully Cut Above, I want you to know there is an amazing offer on the table for the month of May.  This kit can be yours free when you join CTMH!  That’s a $44.95 ($45) value in addition to the great value of the New Consultant Kit

The Consultant Kit:

  • The kit is $75.00 with a value of $164.00 in it.
  • Then you get $50.00 of select product credit to pick select products you want to make up your kit!
  • The Cut Above Live Beautifully kit is $44.95 ($45).

Live Beautifully in depth

Live Beautifully in depth.

Live Beautifully is amazing paper and I wanted to take a post to just showcase how beautiful and amazing it is.   The paper has gold foil accents on some of it.  Two sheets of it are a white with gold polka dots and a white with the rose outline in gold.   Pretty, pretty!  Most of the paper is two-sided and they all have a zip-strip so you can use the little strip you cut off in your projects.

There are two of sheet of paper design in the pack.  I can think of so many different occasions this paper will work for. Proms, weddings, formal events, Mother’s Day, birthdays, and heritage pictures to name a few.  The papers are modern and retro at the same time.  Wait until you see the workshop layouts on my Class Page!

The stamp set is great and wait until you see the cards I made where I embossed the roses with a rose gold embossing powder I found during the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!  So pretty.  The stamps are large enough to work as titles on your scrapbooking pages or as cards.  I love the saying “she believed she could so she did”.  The power of your own thoughts.  The color of your roses can determine the message of your layout or your cards.  Definitely a stamp set that will be usable long past the Live Beautifully papers.

Flowers with Happy Times Stamp

I have to do a quick post on the awesome flowers from the Happy Times Stamp Set.  While I have to fussy cut them, I love how you can shape them and give them dimension this way:

HTKLO RP 2

I use my piercing tool but anything round and even your fingers will allow you to roll/shape the petals and leaves.

Card 4b1

I found that I liked to distressed the edges of the cut flowers and leaves with a sponge dauber and ink pads.  I liked the shading and feel like it make my fussy cutting look better.

HTKLO LP 4 wm

Here I added more layering by having the ribbon lay under the petal of one of the flowers.  With the base stamp for the flower laying flat and by rounding the petals of the flower, I think the flowers look great.  I added gems and/or sequins in the center of the flowers.

HTKLO LP 3

I also used a shimmer spray to shimmer to the leaves and flowers.  Don’t miss out on getting this Happy Times paper for free with a $60.00 order and the stamp set for $17.95.  You’ll also be able to get the SOM for $5.00 with this order AND cutting guides/directions for layouts and cards featuring the paper and stamps.
