Life is Good Layout by Wendy Kessler


Life is Good Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Rustic Home Paper Packet, Uptown Paper Packet, Adventure Fundamentals Paper Packet, Raspberry Cardstock (new color!), Uptown Ribbon Pack, Picture My Life – Gold & Silver Overlay, Thin Cuts – Hearts, Gold Glitter Paper, Grey Enamel Gems, and 4×6 Flip Flaps.

I had so much fun using some of the new papers with these photos.  I was surprised at how well the Rustic Home Paper mixes with the gold elements.

Thin Cuts Tip: Keep a stick pin handy at your desk (I use one with a red tip so I can spot it better).  Use this pin to poke through the holes with the diecuts get stuck in the Thin Cuts.  It is also handy to clean out the tip on the Liquid Glass (which you will most likely be using with your Thin Cuts.)

Vellum Tip: To adhere vellum you can use a vellum tape or spray.  Another option is to apply adhesive where it will be hidden.  Looking at the above layout, I attached the vellum where my pictures and ribbon would cover up any adhesive.  This second option does take planning. 😉  You could also attach with staples or brads.

Organizing Tip: I like to keep all the paper from one packet together.  I’ve got lots of large ziplock bags leftover from completed workshop kits that I reuse (or you could purchase some).  You can peel off the label from the Paper Fundamentals package pretty easily and stick it on one of these bags.  If it doesn’t come off well, you can just tape it to the bag.

August 2016 SOTM Blog Hop (Purr-fect Halloween)

August2016

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the August SOTM, which is Purr-fect Halloween, a set of 17 stamps.

If you have come here from Melissa Robinson’s Blog , you are on the right path!

Here we go! 

Halloween Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Purr-fect Halloween Stamp Set (August 2016 SOTM), Fundamentals Enchantment Paper Packet, Cardstock (Whisper, Goldrush, Eggplant), Black Ink, ShinHan Markers (Warm Grey 4, Lavender, Marigold), Calypso Sequins, and Flower Market Cricut Collection.

I always try to do something different with the SOTM but this one was too cute to not use it for this Halloween layout.  I think the kitty has “princess” eyes. 🙂  For the title, I stamped “Have a purr-fect” (masking the word Halloween) and “Halloween” is a Cricut cut from the new Flower Market Cricut Collection.

Now “Hop” on over to Sheila Bennett’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Purr-fect Halloween Stamp Set is only available through the end of August!
