La La Land Crafts - June 2015 Release Showcase!



Hello friends! ♥

Today I have 2 projects to share with you showcasing dies from La La Land Craft's June 2015 release!

Do you love summer as much as I do? The sun, the beach, the wind in your hair! It's one of my favorite times of the year and the June release features fabulous summer themed dies that are to die for! ♥

First, here is a peek at the Dies release, available NOW at the La La Land Crafts Shop:


For my first project, I created a summer themed card...



I used the Double Stitched Hills Border die to create a little wave in the middle of the card... I inserted the umbrella handle through it...

I created a 3D Beach Umbrella by die-cutting the umbrella twice with card stock, then cutting up one of them and folding up the layers. Love the look!


I adore the Flip Flops die, so cute!


On the inside of the card, I layered the new Scallop Trimmed Banner die and the Flower Banner die...


For my second project, I created a summer themed gift bag...





If you haven't met Molli yet, be sure to drop by the La La Land Crafts shop to check her out... she is adorable as can be.... and she's available for purchase now! ♥

A Wedding Layout featuring Graphic 45's Time to Flourish


Hello friends! ♥

Today I'm excited to share a special project for Graphic 45!

As our first project for the 2015 design team term, the designers were asked to create a favorite project. 

One of my favorite things to create are scrapbook pages, or "layouts". It's the perfect way to express your creative style and commemorate a special occasion or moment in time.

For my first project, I created a layout featuring a photo from my wedding. It captures a very special moment when I was getting dressed for my wedding with the help of my brides maids. This layout features Graphic 45's Time to Flourish and Botanical Tea papers...








Here is a Snapguide tutorial showing how this layout came together. I hope you give one of these a try yourself!


I also created a short video showing this layout up close:


I'm honored to be featured on the Graphic 45 blog today as a welcome to the 2015 design team term. I hope you have time to stop by, take a peek at some of my favorite projects and learn a little bit about me. ♥
