Rest and Relax but don’t miss out!

 Rest and Relax but don’t miss out!

This layout was inspired by a layout made by my friend Jennifer Smith.  You can check her layout here.  The file for this does not open but I created my own and will share at the end.  Using the Make Waves Workshop Your Way, this is the first of three layouts I’m creating using the CTMH Cricut Cartridges, especially You Are Here.

This is done with the Make Waves Workshop Your Way plus some extra cardstock – Bashful, Pacifica, Charcoal, Vellum, Black, Willow, Emerald, Espresso, Lemon, and Glacier.  I used Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels to create the splatter effect on the papers.  You can make your own mist with our bottles which normally I do when I don’t want it to be shimmery.  I’ve run out of the pearl paint we used to sell to make it all shimmery and have yet to find a good replacement for it.  Any suggestions?

Here are some close ups of different elements:

Love the layers in here between the all the elements.  The clear Shimmer Brush adds some fun to the angel fish.  The eyes are done with Black Pearl Paint.

The Make Waves Shimmer trim is just amazing.  There are three different shades of the tropical blue-greens you see in the oceans down around Florida.  Use a piercing tool to put the crease the palm trees and ink to distress those edges  so they show up.  Such a simple way to give dimension to the leaves.

 

Scalloped Shells are made with Bashful and Pixie Cardstock (both on sale right now).  Shadowing in them is from the Bashful Shimmer Brush.   What I did not have pictures of is the added bling put on after the layouts were photographed.  I put the Bashful Pearls on the shells and used several of the  glitter gems from the Make Waves Sequins and Gems collection all through the layout.  It was the perfect finishing touch.

Design Space File: https://design.cricut.com/#/design/83770608

Note on this.  I create my layouts with all the cuts.  I don’t cut the square and rectangle pieces because I can cut them more economically with a straight edge cutter.  Just hide the pieces you don’t want to cut.

February things to keep in mind so you don’t miss out:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world.  Hope this layout brings back some great memories of you being able to relax on an island vacation!  If you need some creative help,  I’m here to help you out – email me: info@lindacreates.com.

I’ll be Home…..

I’ll Be Home….

It seems very strange to be talking about Christmas right now but it’s only 2.5 months away!  Here’s a layout I created to be able to get working on getting some pages done. I made this for a team challenge that I gave to create something Christmas with the new “You Are Here” cartridge!  =)

You can only get the physical cartridge until we run out.  The other three add-ons are digital only.  I love that you get a full pack of our cardstock, which is now two toned.

The treas that have have what looks like the white overlay, are actually done in white glitter paper.   On the tree with the yellow star, I used Shimmer Brush to add some sparkle to it.

This house is so cute and one of two houses on the cartridge.  The white glitter paper give the illusion of snow.  I crossed the one set of trees to over lap the pages.  Put on the left side.  Trim.  Match up the pages and glue the remaining piece on to the left side.

The heart on the door shows love and going home for Christmas is exciting when you get to see friends and family who you haven’t seen for a bit.

To make this, you need:

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

This layout is created with the Falling For You and  Cats and Bats paper packs and the Enchantment Color Palette Cardstock with a few of the Basic colors thrown in.  All the Cricut cuts are from current CTMH Cricut Cartridges.   No stamping this go around but I reserve the right to add some later.  If I do, I’ll share what I do.  The layout design was inspired by Ms. Carrie when I saw her layout posted.   I did change a few things around.

All of the triangles are either 2″x 2″ or 3″ x 3″ squares cut in half, corner to corner.  I created the borders around the pictures with them.  The leaves come from 3 different Cricut Cartridges.   The coffee cups and  sentiment “Enjoy the Little Things” come from the new Cricut You are Here.  Jeff and I love to visit different coffee shops, just to check things out.  We found a cute little one and we have some pictures of this.  I can’t wait to add them.  The rich colors from the Enchantment palette help make this page work.

Layer the leaves in the corner and put the coffee cup on top with 3D foam tape.  Use the gold shimmer brush on the title, “Coffee” (Artbooking alphabet).

Continue to layer the leaves around the sentiment.  Pop the sentiment up on 3D foam tape.  Use your Gold Shimmer Pen to color in the “Enjoy”.

You’ll need the following to create this:

Cats and Bats Workshop Your Way

Cats and Bats Workshop Your Way

Check out these 6 layouts you can create with the Cats and Bats WYW G1136.  These layouts are from the Studio Sus and you can get the directions for free when you purchase the WYW from my website!  I love that three of the layouts are about girlfriends, best days ever, and birthday party.  I’ve not completed the layouts because I need to get the pictures on them.  I’ll be using some of them for my birthday. =)

You’ll receive electronic copies of cutting directions, pictures for assembly, and a “the rest of the story” to create these awesome layouts.  No into Halloween?  Then remove the Picture My Life cards that are used as titles and replace them with photographs.  Use the backside of the papers are that are “non-Halloween”.

The colors of the Cats and Bats paper pack are fun.  You can see that I changed things up using Gypsy paper for some of the bases. I like the brightness and think adding a shade of purple in, makes things pop more.  Eggplant looks good as well.
