Swingin’ Fun!

The focus of this layout is “The swing that Grandpa built.” My dad made one of these for us when we were kids. We moved and so this is a second generation model so the grandkids can have fun too. *Everyone* takes turns!  Supplies used: CTMH Friendship stamp set and cranberry ink, CTMH “Let’s Get Together” paper and cardstock, and (unknown) flower eyelets.  My crop-a-dile has given me a new love for eyelets!

Going Green

I think this is a great idea that Queen & Co. has come up with.  In a Go Green effort they are reducing wasteful and costly packaging with the release of a full line of bulk embellishments that are “packaged” in adorable little buckets that you can use for organizing your supplies or altering or giving as a gift…they are just plain cute!  Check them out for yourself here: Queen & Co.

Keep It Simple

Here is a simple page that draws your eye directly to the photo.  Supplies: paper, ribbon, flower with brad, and quote.

Overlays = Quick, Easy Layouts

Overylays may be expensive but they can make for a quick layout and the cost can average out for your page by not adding so many more embellishments.  This ballet page is the perfect example.  Supplies include pink paper, dance overlay, handmade paperclip, and my photo.  The overlay is overtop of the entire page.  I cut a slit in it to add the paper clip.
