Happy Little Layout

This collection from WRMK, Farmer's Market, is one one of those collections that you look at and it just makes you happy. The colors, the sayings on the cards and stickers, is all just really cheery! And I am needing cheery these last few days. Rainy, foggy and cold...barely hitting 60º is not the way I was envisioning the summer with my kids. But look at that bicycle! How can that not make you smile? :)

I came upon this bicycle while on vacation with my hubby in San Diego. And although I really, really wanted to ride it, we just didn't have time.

For this layout, I used this awesome sketch from Scrap 365 as a starting point for my layout.
I added a few more layers than the sketch originally calls for but I really love how it all came together! Such a great starting point!

There is also a Farmer's Market Instagram Albums Made Easy option for this collection which is perfect for creating those layers! 

Thanks for stopping by to have a look today. Feel free to leave a comment. I read every one of them! I hope you are enjoying your summer! Until next time...

Going Places!

Amazingly, I have a nephew who is turning 18 today! Yes, time just keeps on ticking by doesn't it? I thought that the Jet Set collection from WRMK was a perfect collection for a kid young adult who is really going places in his life!

I used this sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap as the basis for my card and I stuck very close to the design. I like a card with a more basic design for men for some reason. (I have a hard time layering and fussy cutting on men's cards.) So, this sketch was perfect! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week ahead!

Adventure Layout

Just a quick blog post today to share a layout that I made using the new WRMK Jet Set collection and utilizing a sketch from Creative Scrappers, using two photos instead of one! 

I have so many Disney photos to scrap and I have been putting it off for a while but this Jet Set collection was too perfect for these photos not to use! This page is a bit more simple than my usual but I am hoping to turn it into page one of a two page layout (something I haven't done for a while now)! 

The colors of this collection are really great to match up with any photos...blues, oranges, yellows, etc. I am hoping to get page two done soon! When I do, I will post that as well! (It is dreary here again today so again, I apologize for the lighting on the photo.)

Summer Fun

This month, the challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel blog is "Dads, Grills and Summer Fun." I am sharing a layout that I made today which focuses on the Summer Fun portion of that theme!

I loved using some of the Pretty Little Studio papers and embellies that I have been hoarding saving for a while! This layout of my youngest at the cottage last summer is definitely him in his element!

I love this woodgrain paper with the pop of color that the triangle paper provides. And, the blue of his eyes is my favorite part of the page!

But seriously, how cute are those little pennants with the critters on them? I loved using them on this page.

And who doesn't love a cute little owl family? The vellum heart paper is from the Sheer Metallic WRMK collection. 

My boy loves being outside so it was really fun to create a page which focused on his nature loving tendencies! 

I hope that you will take some time to play along this month with the Ribbon Carousel Challenge! Create your own project using the theme "Dads, Grills and Summer Fun" and be sure to link it up on the Ribbon Carousel Blog. You just may be the winner this month! Check out the Ribbon Carousel Blog for all of the details! 

Thanks for taking a look today!
