Webster`s Pages

Hi there!
I created this layout some time ago and finally I can share it.
I used "Yacht Club" collection from Webster`s Pages. It`s rather simple one but it`s all about layering here.
I cut out frames and layered them. I added different stickers to embellish the page.....
Everything you see here comes from the "Yacht Club" collection - pattern papers, fabric flower, alphas, stickers, etc.
The boats were also cut out of the pattern paper....

And I thought it`ll be fun to share a photo that hubby took of me last weekend so I can say "Hiiiiiii" to everybody :-)and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog :-)!

  Upcoming Blog Hop..........

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy Scapping ~Guest-Designer~

Hi there!
I was so happy when sweet Lena from beautiful Greece invited me to guest-design for her scrapbook store "ENJOY SCRAPPING" once again. Back in June this year I had the pleasure to work with one of her kits and now I`ll be guest-designing for her using again one of her gorgeous kits. Thank you, Lena, for trusting me again :-)
The kit I worked with is full of Prima Marketing goodies and it`s featuring the "Pixie Glen" collection which is very, very beautiful!

And now it`s time to show you my first project I created with the Pixie Glen Kit form "ENJOY SCRAPPING" ...
To create the gates I used Prima Marketing mask and Glimmer Mist "Key Lime". I used the mask directly on the pattern paper and then I cut the two gates out...
I added Stickles to the roses....
I did lots of fussy cutting to create my own embellishments......
If you want to visit "ENJOY SCRAPPING" store you can do it -------> HERE

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such sweet comments!
Have a great day :-)))

My Girl ~Manor House Creations~

Hi there!
I`m sharing today my first  DT layout I created for Manor House Creations. I used "Spring Awakening" collection from The Scrap Cake.
I did some fussy cutting, layering, stamping, lacing and misting here. I also used a piece of the packaging to mat the photo of my daughter.
And a few close-ups.....
The chipboard title comes from Imaginarium Designs. Originally it was "My girls" but I removed the "S" because as you know I have only one girl ;-)
Thanks for dropping by! Have a sunny day!
