Garden Bag Giftie

This little garden bag turned out so cute!  I used the owl bag from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge but just didn't cut out the eyes and then cut the top flap off.  I added some cuts from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to decorate it.  It is approximately 2 inches wide, just perfect for some little chocolates for a friend!

March Planner Scrapbooking Layouts

I am enjoying making these pages so very much!  I picked my favorite pictures from March and scrapbooked them in my Planner.  I still pulled out the weekly planning pages I still have them, but I'm pretty sure I don't want them in the book. 

I've done more journaling on the month planner page than January and February and I'm really liking that.

I did a full layout on the My Crush Everyday Life Pages on the CTMH Spring Launch Training which was really fun!

I also did a full layout on the fun things we made for my daughter's "Bow Ties Are Cool" (nod to Dr. Who) baby shower.

I also love adding in the sheet protectors and just tucking in some pictures.  I will only have a few layouts to do in a regular book that have a lot more pictures than I want to put in my planner.  It's pretty cute, right?!  It is so fun!

Hello Regatta Card

I love the Regatta papers and I'm not really a water person, but they are so cute and fun to work with!  For this simple card, I just layered strips of the Regatta paper, mounted an anchor I cut from the Artistry Cricut cartridge and then added the stamped "Hello" from the Just to Say stamp set from the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection.  I added the beautiful White and Gold Ribbon to finish it off.

Pocket Scrapbooking with Overlays

This this first time I have used the new Picture My Life Overlays and they are so much fun! 

These are the White Overlays and are amazing!  You can see here how easy they are to use, just put it over the top of the picture you want to use it with and then put it into the pocket and viola' it is done and what a fun embellishment!

I used both 4x6 and 3x4 White Overlays on this layout and I just love how it turned out!

Polaroid Smile Card

This is one of the cards from my Card Making Workshop this month using the Regatta papers and the April Stamp of the Month, Life in Pictures.  I think it turned out so cute, we cut a slit where the photos would come out of a Polaroid and put a piece of paper through to mimic a photo coming out.

Training and Farrell's Layout

I used the Regatta paper and embellishments for this layout, I just love the paper boats on these papers and I thought they would be so cute with the paper hat that our waiter made for Carly's "birthday" at Farrell's. 
The left hand page has pictures from our training class and then a bunch of us went to dinner after at Farrell's and those pictures are all on the right hand page.  I saved the Farrell's menu and cut out parts of it to add to the layout.  I think it is so fun!

Captured My Heart Card

When I was planning my cards for April, I was thinking about holidays and events and I thought about April Fools, April Showers and then April in Paris popped into my head and I remembered the Eiffel Tower cards on the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  I was focusing on the Regatta papers this month and was really wondering how I was going to pull off April in Paris with maritime type papers.  But the ombre paper actually turned out to be perfect, it created a beautiful sky.  I just love how the card turned out!  The sentiment stamp is from the April Stamp of the Month set Life in Pictures which I thought was perfect.
