Smile and Be Happy

Hello fellow scrappers, I'm back with my first layout using the gorgeous Barn Market papers!! I chose the Spottet Rose paper for my layout today, using a gorgeous cut out tag and title from the Barnmarket page.  I just love this photo of my daughter teaching her dad how to do selfies!

On my background I used a Prima mask and Shimmerz Texturez then added my photo. I used lots of Prima and Petaloo flowers from my stash and cut out some butterflies from the Barnmarket page.

I added some gorgeous branches from the Winter Branches set of La-La Land Crafts dies, love the design!

Here I tucked in a gorgeous chatelaine Wycinaka... I added in my title and a few more butterflies and added a few splashes to finish it off!  Check out the new Barn Market collection in the store, it is just beautiful!!!!


Hi Cathi here with my layout for the October challenge! This month our challenge is to use the colors orange, brown and gold and incorporate layers of leaves in your project. You can be inspired by the beautiful moodboard below!

I chose to use a autumn themed vintage image for my layout and ltos of layers of different can see the masked leaves on the base of my layout, using Shimmerz Dazzlers.  The explore chipboard comes from the our sponsor this month Creative Embellishments from the Adventure Word Set.

Here you can see the gorgeous Flourish 1 chipboard from Creative Embellishments, I've tucked in a Prima flower and gold frame behind the photo adding a bit of corrugated cardboard.

Early Christmas Cards with Riddersholm Designs Christmas Story

This week I thought I'd get a head start on my Christmas cards! I used the gorgeous Christmas Story papers full of gorgeous muted pinks, greens and browns.

As usual, there are some gorgeous cut out images in the collection. I used this vintage Santa image and layered three sheets from the collection. For all my cards I used stunning red poinsettia blooms and for this card I added some pine cones, sparkles and a brad. I finished off the card with a twine loop bow.

I took another gorgeous image from the Christmas Story collection and set it on top of a gorgeous doily made from the papers. Again I used the poinsettias, pine cones and brads to decorate this card, adding a silk ribbon bow and a tag with a Christmas sentiment. For the finishing touch I did some stitching around the card's edge.

For my final card I took an image from my stash and then layered on lots of flowers, another poinsettia and some gorgeous Ink-It Cherry Blossoms. I added twine around the card and as a bow. Finally, I added stitching for a finishing touch.

I just love all of Riddersholm's Christmas collections! Look out for Christmas Cosy in store now!
