Class Act


Hello everyone! I'm back with another Back To School themed 12 x12 layout. It's my third week creating with this super cute collection from Close To My Heart and I still can't get enough of it. For this layout I used a four photo pattern from Close To My Hearts Imagine How To Program. This is one of my favorite patterns from the book, it's called Sweet Symphony and can be found on page 24. This is a two page pattern but I'm just using the left side of the pattern for my layout today.


I used one side of patterned paper and three different colored pieces of cardstock to create my background. After I had all of my pieces adhered to my white page front I added four white pieces of cardstock ( these are where my photos will go ), some embellishments, some alphabet stickers, and some black paint splatters. I really love these fun shaped chipboard pieces and just love any kind of quote bubble with a fabulous sentiment in it.


To create my title I used a little 3D arrow sticker from the Chalk It Up Assortment sheet and some black alphabet stickers from Glitz Designs to spell out "Class Act". You can find a list of all the supplies I used below along with a few detailed photos of this collection. Thanks for visiting!

Love This Picture


Hello everyone! Last week I shared my very first two page layout using this fabulous new collection from Close To My Heart called Chalk It Up....it was so fun to create with. So I'm back today to share a fun one page layout using the very same collection. I started my one page layout by following one of the patterns from Close To My Hearts Reflections How To Program. The pattern I used is called Side Bar- Photo Focus and it can be found on page 47. Once I had which pattern I wanted to use for my layout things came together pretty quickly. That's whats so great about these How To Programs from Close To My Heart, they are super easy to use and their great for creating layouts ahead of time. I followed along with the pattern and got all of my patterned paper strips, cardstock strip, and 5 x 7 photo mats cut and attached to my page front. After I had my patterned paper and cardstock adhered to my page front I added some stamping and embellishments.


I added the large Love This Picture chipboard title to the left side of my layout with some white ribbon. Above is a close up. I just love this super cute chipboard piece and it matches perfectly with the sentiment strip I added to the patterned paper and cardstock!


I also added a chipboard star and some 3D heart stickers to the right side of my 5 x 7 photo mats. These little 3D stickers from the Chalk It Up Assortment sheet are so cute, I just love using them. You can see a picture of them below. Hope you enjoyed my layout and Thanks for visiting!

Chalk It Up 2 Page School Year Layout

Hello everyone! A few days ago I announced I would be joining Jessica's Craftin' & Stampin' Design Team!  Jessica is a consultant for Close To My Heart and has graciously shared some products with me to create with. So today I'm sharing my first two page layout I created with Close To My Hearts Chalk It Up Paper Pack & Chalk It Up Complements. For my two page layout I used a cute little sketch from Close To My Hearts Magic How To Program Book. The pattern I used is called Top Hat and can be found on page 114.


I started by creating my background with a 12 x 12 piece of Lagoon cardstock and then I added all of my patterned paper, photo mats, and embellishments to the page. This page has one large 5 x 7 photo and two smaller 3 1/2 x 5 photos. For my title I used the large Flaxen colored "School" Chipboard piece from the Chalk It Up Complements Chipboard Sheet. 


For the second page of my layout I started with a 12 x 12 sheet of Flaxen cardstock and then I added my patterned paper, photo mats, and embellishments to the page. This page has one large 5 x 7 photo and one 5 x 3 1/2 photo. For the second part of my title I used the large Lagoon colored "Year" chipboard piece from the Chalk It Up Complements Chipboard Sheet. I also added a few other chipboard embellishments to both of my pages along with some stitching. You can check out a close up below. Super cute right? I hope you enjoyed my two page layout!

Weekly DT Projects

Hello everyone! Today I'm stopping in to share a few of my most recent Design Team projects for Nani Ke Ola and Paper Wings Productions. First up I have a cute little Holiday themed card to share that I created and shared over at The Aviary for this weeks Spotlight Sunday Post. 


I used two of my favorite Christmas stamp sets to create this one. The large Santa image from the Vintage Santa Cling Stamp Set  is so festive and fun and the little "Merry Christmas" sentiment works so well with it. Of course there are endless possibilities with the Christmas Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set, there are 11 stamps in this collection and their perfect for mixing and matching. 


Next up I shared two different layouts over at Nani Ke Ola yesterday for my very last post. The first layout I created with Glitz Design's Black & White Collection and the second layout I created with Chic Tags Cloud 9 Collection. First up is my Sweet Moments layout.


I used both sides of Glitz Design's 12 x12 Woodgrain sheet of patterned paper for my background. After I had my background put together I added some red paint splatters and some hand cut flowers from one of the 6 x 6 sheets of patterned paper to the top right and bottom right of my layout.


I created my little photo frame with a stamp from Paper Wings Productions Snapshot Framer Clear Stamp Set and then layered a few strips of patterned paper from the Black & White 6 x6 paper pack behind it.  I also used some of the cuter little sentiment stickers from the 12 x12 Alphas & Words sheet.  Next up is my Happy Notes layout.


For my background I used a 12 x12 sheet of gray cardstock and a large strip of Chic Tags Dreamy patterned paper.  I just love this fun patterned paper.


To accent the fun patterned paper I used a bunch of different embellishments all around my photo. I used some cloud chipboard embellishments, a few colorful buttons, an acrylic tidbit, a mini icon, and a few label and sentiment stickers. Hope you enjoyed my projects today and Thanks for visiting!

XO Layout

Hello everyone! I'm stopping in to share this cute little layout I created for Nani Ke Ola. My layout is all about Love, well hugs and kisses that is. Before I get to all the details I thought I'd share that Nani Ke Ola is currently having a Design Team Call. It's a great team to be apart of and I'm going to miss being on the team. Jennifer is accepting applications now through July 20th. Good luck!


I used the fabulous 12 x 12 Striped & XO  patterned papers from Glitz Design's Black & White Collection for my background. I left the striped paper whole and added some hand ripped XO patterned paper to the top and bottom of my layout.


I used some of the fun circle alphabet  stickers from the Black & White 12 x12 Alphas & Words sheet to create a cute little title.  I also matted my little photo with some white tissue paper and a red polka dotted sheet of patterned paper from the Black & White 6 x6 paper pad . After I had my photo matted I added a wood veneer heart from Elle’s Studio along with some sliver sequins and a cute little stamped sentiment.


For the top right of my layout I added the XO journaling card from the Black & White Bits & Pieces sheet along with a few sliver sequins and a wood veneer heart from Creative Embellishments. Thanks for visiting today!

PWP July Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello and Welcome to Paper Wing Productions July Blog Hop & Giveaway! If you've arrived here from Norma's Blog, then you're in the right place. If you’re just stopping by for a visit, please click HERE to start from the beginning.


This month our color theme is Yellow. So get comfortable and let us fill your day with the warm shades of yellow, enjoy the hop!!


For my card I used three different cling stamp sets from Paper Wings Productions and of course I had to use lots of yellow. I started by stamping the large " May your life be like a wildflower growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day" sentiment from the Wildflower Cling Stamp Set in the middle of my cardstock.  After I had my sentiment stamp I inked up the black eyed susan's from the Black Eyed Susan Cling Stamp Set and randomly stamped them all around the sentiment. I wanted my card to look like an old vintage card so I added some background text in chocolate ink and then colored my flowers. To give it an even more vintage feel I crinkled it up a few times and distressed the edges before adding a border and stitching. Make sure to hop along because this months main prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to the Paper Wings Productions online store.
