Gotcha Layout. ~~PPPR



Hi Crafty Friends! 
Today is Design Team day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I have a layout to share with you today.  I have been wanting to use this Valentine's Day paper for awhile now and this past weekend I finally had a chance to use it.  Here it is.  


I used the Layered Labels 1 Cutting files for my background shape.  The cardstock behind my picture is from the Layered Labels 2 Cutting files
 


These cute little cupids are from the Cupid Cutting Files.  Their little faces are from Peachy Keen's Boy Mates Face Assortment.       

 
The title is also from the Cupid Cutting Files

 
Don't forget to head over to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and check what the rest of the design team created. 
 
Have a great week!

Happy Days Layout



Hi Crafty Friends!!
 Today I have a layout that I made of my twins Nicholas & Joseph to share with you.  I wanted to keep this layout simple and the main focus to be the pictures and twine.  Without further ado, Here it is.  


I used the Olive Green twine for the bow on the camera.  


I looped the Pumpkin Orange twine through the banner and then glued it down with some Scotch Quick Dry Glue.  I also used the Pumpkin Orange on the buttons.  You can see it in the picture below.  

 
You can buy the Olive Green HERE

I hope you enjoyed my layout.  Have a great day!

Key to my Heart Layout

 
 
 
Hi Everyone!
 
Today I have to share a layout with you.  I adore this picture of my son Matthew.  Maybe it's his eyes in the picture?  Or Maybe because he is soooo cute.  Either way he will always have the "Key to my Heart".  Now back to my layout.  :)

 
I used the Cherry Red twine to make a pennant banner.  I added two little bows to finish the ends of my banner.  The gray and red strips are washi tape. 


I used the Graphite Gray and the Cherry Red Twine on the key.  When I cut out my title, I cut an extra key the same size as the key on the title so it would stand out from the title.  The little gray hearts are actually cut out from the keys at the top right side of my layout.  

 
 


 
 
Have a Twine-tastic day!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow.

Valentine Be Mine!

 

Hi Crafty Friends! 

I'm here to show you a quick treat bag that I made for a couple of challenges going on now.  I made these for Matthew's teachers for Valentine's Day.  I ended up making 3 of the treat bags.  You can see all 3 of them in the next picture.   This is the photo for the Photo Inspiration challenge over at Peachy Keen.  I was inspired by the red in the picture. 

 
Here is my treat bag. 
 
 
I used the Handled Treat Bag Topper Cutting File from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons for the treat bag topper.  The shape of the sentiment is from Sentiment Spots 1For the Heart I used the Happy Heart Cutting Files also from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings Valentine Edition. The twine is Cherry Red from Timeless Twine.  The cute little faces are from Peachy Keen's Snow Cuties Face Assortment

 
I'm entering these into the following challenges:
