Snow Angel Layout ~~PPPR~~



Today is Design Team day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  Recently my family and I went to the snow and I have been dying to use this picture of my cousin's daughter on a scrapbook layout.  Isn't she a cutie?  I love her little grin.  Okay now back to my layout.  :)  



For the patterned paper behind the picture I use the Layered Labels 1 cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. 
 

 
The title is from the Let it Snow Cutting Files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I love the font that is used for Angel.  The Cameo cuts it out so nicely. 

 
To make my snowflake border I cut out a bunch of snowflakes in different sizes.  Then I just layered them together to make the border.  I also sprayed them with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch spritz to give them a little shimmer.  The snow flakes are from the Snowflakes Cutting Files.  I used the new Graphite Gray from Timeless Twine.  


 
This cute little snow girl is from the Snow Peeps Cutting Files.  The snow girl's face is from Peachy Keen's Snow Cuties Face Assortment.   
 
Don't forget to stop by the other Design team members blogs to see all of their lovely projects. 
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Valentine's Blog Hop

 
 
Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Valentine Blog hop.  Today we are making Valentine projects to share with you. 
 
 If you came here from Lisa's blog Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons you are in the right place.  I made a cute little Valentine's Day card to share with you.    
 
 
I used the Layered Labels 1 for my card base.  I just copied the image I wanted to use, then grouped them together.  Then I welded two of them together to make the base.  I love that little owl he is from the Little Hoot Cutting files.   
 
 
For my sentiment I used the Sentiment Spots 1 cutting file.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Got Candy? stamp set.  I am loving this stamp set.  It's my go to stamp set right now.  I also thought it would be fun to put the little owl on an Action Wobble.  I got my Action Wobbles HERE.   
 
 
Poor little owl is going to be dizzy.  LOL.  Below you can see the Action wobble.

I used Timeless Twine's Cherry Red Twine to close the pillow box.  I also used Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Sentiment Spots 1 for my sentiment shape.

Happy Birthday Matthew!!

 
Happy Birthday Matthew!
 
Today is Matthew's 7th Birthday.  I can't believe that he is 7 years old already.  Where has the time gone?  Before I know it he will be driving and dating.  :)  He was really excited when I told him I was going to make some goody bags for him to pass out to his class.  Here they are. 
 
 
I used Jaded Blossom's Sweet Birthday Wishes for the sentiment.   Matthew picked out the sentiment and the skater image himself.  The skater boy and sentiment shape is from the online silhouette store.   
 
 
The bags are the 3x4 inch bags from the Jaded Blossom store.  I filled the bags with a candy necklace and gumballs.
