I'VE MOVED

The new blog is finally live and ready to go. I'll leave this blog up because I have some pretty awesome projects shared on here, but I won't be updating it.
You can now find me over at my new site

I'm so thankful for everyone who came by this site. Whether it was once or every time I shared a new project. I hope that you'll follow along on my other website and continue to encourage me to keep making. Have a wonderful day!

Hunting Layout | 11/24

Today I'm sharing another hunting layout. This one was inspired by a different piece of pattern paper, but I made this one from papers I've been using for these layouts. I love how it turned out.

The photo was simple and I wanted the background to be the star. I love how it turned out. I love the labels at the corners. I used this digital set from Kellie Stamps and just coloured them in shades of brown, green, and grey.

I used my sewing machine to stitch the edges of each paper layer down. It took some time, but I love the texture it adds. I love the texture combinations of the different papers. Some are smooth, but the patterns add the appearance of different texture.

Thanks for coming by to see this spread. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hunting Layout 10/24

Hooray another hunting layout. I'm sure you're all tired of seeing them, but I have this desire to share my work here whether or not it fits into the mold that has been created. I love making pretty layouts, but I also feel that it's important to tell as many stories as you can, even if it's just a bunch of photos telling the stories.

This layout uses a cut file from one of the very early rounds of Paiges Pages over at Big Picture Classes. I used the extra pieces for a the last couple of layouts as well. Here I just cut some random scraps to fit into the open sections and layered a few of the white pieces to create white on white dimension.

Here you can see some of the texture the corrugated and white pieces add to the layout. I also stamped the date into the lines. I don't have a specific date but the month is more than enough.

Thanks for coming to see this layout. Have a wonderful day!
