friday... Me and You layout

Hi everyone! I'm here sharing my very first layout using the Sunkissed Garden Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden! I'm so very excited to be guest designing this month! 

The main kit is simply jammed packed with gorgeous Lemoncraft papers and matching embellies that will surely make your pages stand out! This is my first time working with Lemoncraft and I have to say, that I'm in LOVE with their papers!

Here's my first layout:
I made this layout using one of my favorite pictures of my baby girl and I. The background paper is from the Bonus Paper and the definition stamps, doilies, fussy cut flowers and butterflies are from the Embellishment Bonus Kit. I just love how everything goes together so beautifully!


I used the flowers from the Extra Blossom Kit for this layout and used the Lindy's Spray to create splatters on the background. 


You can create a lot of dimension by just adding fussy cut layers to your layout!


Here's one last look at the layout to show the dimension! I just love how that blue Lemoncraft Daydream Ephemera Card pops against the pink background! It also makes the perfect title for my layout!

Here's a quick how to photo tutorial I made for you:

Step 1: Stamp everything you want to use on a white cardstock with black ink.


Step 2. Die cut everything together (this saves time!).


Step 3. Using distress ink, add color to your die cut images (I only used two ink colors-Vintage Photo and Forrest Moss!). You can now assemble your scene on your card front!

friday...hurricane update and an announcement!

Hi friends! We recently had hurricane Irma go through Florida and even though we didn't get hit as hard as we originally thought in Orlando, we did have some damage to the house (a few roof shingles, water damage and mold because of it, and a bunch of tree limbs broke off our mango tree). We are slowly going back to normal and we thank God that it wasn't worse!

During that time I was in contact with the owner of The International Scrapbook Garden Kit Club, a brand new Kit Club debuting soon, and she offered me a guest DT position! I said yes and very soon you'll be seeing my new layouts using their gorgeous new kit, the Sunkissed Kit!

Here's a preview of the kit:

Come back in a week for more!
