The Perfect Collection

Is a class by Shimelle  that shows you how to cut papers from an entire collection to scrap your pages with and increase your productivity!  I am still sort of slow but that is just me. I cut up 12 sheets of  American Crafts Blue Skies collection. It is from a couple of years ago but I still have part of it to use. LOL So today I cut 12 sheets into different sizes and shapes Here is the first layout I have done with it. The large floral and the stripe are two of the pieces from the kit.

Family together

I used AC cardstock, the tags were cut with Silhouette Studio images, the keys are K& Co.  I stamped  with Vintage Photo Distress ink and fussy cut the titles. Thanks for looking!

Wow two layouts posted in one day!

That’s a rare thing for me these days. A fun layout of the grands and their friend staying cool in the pool on these 100 degree days we are having. Fun in the Sun-1

Sorry my photo is a little crooked. I used a sketch by Debbie Sanders from the Super Sketches kit featuring Echo Park. I added stamped images by Imaginesce, and Distress inks, then fussy cut them and the other fishes. The title was from Silhouette Studio and the tags were Echo Park & Silhouette Studio. The frames are digital and were designed by Katie Pertiet. Thanks for looking!

July Fourth Fun!

Let Freedom Ring

The Fourth of July was a very hot steamy day here with 100 degrees on the thermometers. So  a lot of the day was spent in water or indoors. My grandchildren managed to bear the heat though by playing in the pool, but they also marched in the Fairlawn parade with their karate school. We watched fireworks on Tuesday night. I think they really enjoyed the holiday as most of do inspite of the heat!

This layout was inspired by a sketch by Debbie Sanders and is from the June Super Sketches kit featuring Echo Park papers. I also added  some stars I fussy cut from pattern paper by We R Memories. I varied the photo sizes and added a few other touches of my own. Thanks for looking!

I so love these soft yellow petunias I planted in my planter boxes. They look so beautiful in spite of the 99 degree temperatures we have had the past few days. I used Prima’s Sunkissed collection, and Webster’s Pages. Thanks for looking!
