Cherish Layout


Here is another layout using that K & Company (I think) paper stack.  Simple with just the added Kaiser Rhinestone title and American Crafts glitter brads.

Stamp Sunday #12 – My Peeps

B1402 My Peeps


Supplies used are CTMH unless otherwise noted: Lucy Paper Packet, My Peeps stamp set, Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Sky/Outdoor Denim/Petal inks, Sweet Leaf/Cotton Candy/Sky/Petal/Creme Brulee Markers, and Kaiser Pearls.

I started with a sketch from Magic.  It was a fun one because of all the pictures that I was able to add.  I have a few more so I will be adding flip flaps over the bottom left photo.  This is a great stamp set for Easter.  I used all of the images.  The eggs were fun to color and added a lot of color to the layout.  This set also works great with the adhesive springs for an added playful element.  I didn’t use them on this layout but I have used them on a milk carton that I’m almost finished with and will share soon.

Girly Layout


I am pretty sure this paper was from a K & Company stack.  I just love the bright colors and how easy it is to use for a quick and simply layout.  I just added my picture, a CTMH Sparkle Flourish, and Kaiser Rhinestones.  Done!

CTMH Love Your Layout March 2012

Watch this month’s Love Your Layout video for instructions that will show you a cleaver way to and your title and also play with the stitching tool.

A Good Teach Layout

This layout was created for the Use it or Lose it Challenge.  The challenge this time is Paper Piecing.  I used to do paper piecing all the time.  It’s a lot easier now that we have the Cricut but I still just haven’t used this technique much.  It is a bit time consuming but always worth it in the end.

For my layout I pieced together some stamped images as you can see in the closeup picture above.  My base was created using an image from the Life’s Creation stamp set (retired).  I stamped and cut out the image 3 times and placed them in a circle.  My next layer is a flower from the Sweet Home Workshop-On-The-Go stamp set (retired) and the top flower is from Life’s Creation.  Paper piecings look even more amazing if you add some type of embellishment to them like I did with the Opaque Pearls.


Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: paper, Life’s Creation stamp set (retired), Sweet Home stamp set (retired), Colonial White Ribbon, Opaques Pearl Adhesive Gems, Irresistibles Eclectic Chipboard Die-Cuts Alphabet, Chocolate/Juniper/Tulip/Sunset inks, and Zig marker.

The layout was one I received in a swap at convention a couple years ago, created by Anna Peterson.  I added the title, journaling, and stamped embellishments.
