In this challenge I only had 20 minutes to put this together. 5 minutes were supposed to be spent gathering supplies and the remaining 15 minutes were to spent putting the layout together. You did have to incorporate flowers, fruit or veggies, green, brown, and words. So I did this the flowers are pretty easy to spot they are prima flowers. The felt strip is also made up of flowers. I used brown in the satin ribbon strip and cardstock background paper. WOrd are in the title "nightlife" and in the journaling. The fruits or veggies can be found in the basic grey offbeat paper that is found behind the top photo on the left hand side of the page. I hope you enjoy this layout. Thank you for watching.

I took an old piece of Bazzill cardsotck from my stash as the base for this layout. I used various background stamps and stamped on left hand side and bottom of the blue cardstock. I also added a bird that I cut out of Basic grey offbeat paper and added it to the left hand corner. I used pineapple glimmer mist to make the bird shimmer. I tore a stamp with a plane on it from K& Co. homemade die cuts pack and added it to the top right and corner. I also edged this with waterslide glimmer mist. I took the other part of the stamp and added it to the bottom almost center of the page. This too was edged with waterslide glimmer mist.I used tim holtz broken china, faded jeans and weathered wood distress inks. Then I took a piece of Best Creations Blue glitter paper and tore it on 3 sides. I distressed it further with tattered angels bubbes and waterslide glimmer mist. The top layer of pattern paper came from Basic Grey offbeat. It was ripped and distressed with yellow daisy and mustard seed glimmer msit. I rolled all three layers in various spots to add interest and dimension. Top left hand corner I placed my main photo and added a frame frm the K& Co. homemade die cut collection. The envelope, ticket, word strips that say blue skies up above, and circle die cut wit hthe plane in the center all came from K& co. homemade die cut collection pack.

Off to the park

In this layout I took 6x6 sheet of Paper Studios burlap pattern paper
and used it as the foundation of the page. In the far left corner of the page I stamped a Donna Salazar lace stamp and heat embossed it with Ranger detail white embossing powder. I then used my stampabilities cirlce die cut to cut out a circle shape of Prima paper and added it to the bottom right hand corner. I edged the circle shape with Prima lace. In the center is a Brenda Walton flower sticker that was glimme rmisted in old lace. I also added 2 more Brenda Walton stickers that were placed on with 2 differnent heights of pop dots. The flower used samlled pop dots to secure it to the page. On the butterfly I wanted it to look like it was resting on the flower so I needed more dimension so I used thicker pop dots. I added some prima swirls as the trail for the butterfly. I also have 2 circle tags which were punced out using my Cuttlebug and Stampabilities cirlce die cut. Both were edged with 2 different types of Prima lace. I wanted the lace to look layered when the tags were in place.
I hope you enjoyed this 6x6 layout. Thank you for viewing it.

Girls layout

In he Girls layout I again used Imaginisce flower paper as the base for this layout along with a 4' strip of orange bazzill cardstock. I also used a border sticker to eas the transition between the two papers. Onthe left hand side of the page I used a flower from my aunts bridal bouquet as the foundation for the picture of the two flower girls. I added Martha Stewart pearls around the photo. I also added 3 butterflies on the petals of the flower. I used bazzill floss and template to stich the stem of the flower. To the bottom right hand side of the flower I added another flower from my stash place a cirlce punch in the cetner of the flower and a butterfly sticker on the circle punch. On the orange cardstock I placed 5 glittered prima flowers in 2 shades of orange. and added metal letters that spell out the word girls. In the top right hand corner I added a butterfly dimensional sticker. I used these colors because they matched my aunts colors in her wedding. I also tried to add a personal touch by taking a flower from her bouquet and adding it to the page. I hope you enjoyed this layout. Thank yo so much for viewing it.


In the flower layout I used Imaginisce flower paper as the basis of this 12x12 layout. I used a 4 inch strip of orange bazzill cardstok to the right hand side as the backdrop of my title. I used 6 prima flowers in 2 shades of orange and placed letters on top that spell flower. I used a border sticker to ease the transition of the orange cardstock and pattern paper. I used one of my aunts flowers from her bridal bouquet as the base for the photo of the two flower girls. I then cut the photo using a circle punch and place martha stewart pearls around the photo. I took 2 butterfly stickers and placed them on the flower for added interest. I hand stitched the stem of the flower with Bazzill floss and template. In the fight hand corner I place a flower from my stash added a circle punch to the center with a butterfly on top. I hope you enoy this layout. Thank you for looking at it.

You're Invited layout

You're Invited layout. I took a piece of Imaginisce paper that says save the date on it as the base of this layout. I than layered a 12x12 postge stamp chipboard on top of the Imaginesce paper. That served as a frame for the layout. On the postage stamp chipboard I stamped the title You're Invited with a making memories heart sticker in the cneter of the two words. I added making memories brown glitter to the heart. On the other 3 sides of the postage stamp frame I added various making memories hearts as well and added making memories glitter. On the inside of the postage fram I added my aunts wedding invitation(to the left side of the frame). I added silver photo corners to the inviation. I layered a photo of my aunt and her soon to be husband. I framed the photo with another postage stamp chipboard and glimmer misted it in old lace. I added a invitation sticker to the corner of the photo of my aunt.
In the top right corner I punched out a circle and added the date of their wedding and their names. I also added 3 stamped wavy lines to make it look like a piece of stamped mail.
Just below those ebellishments I added a sticker that says love & kisses and framed it with another postage stamped frame. To top that embellishment off I added making memories brown glitter. On the right hand bottom I have the reception card of my aunts wedding with the information on where the reception was to be held. I also added photo corners to this as well.
I hope you enjoy this layout. I carried the theme of mailing the invitation through out.

Father's day card

This is a fathers day card I made. I took a piece of flocked cardsotck to make the base of this card. I used dark brown bazzill cardsock in the center and distressed it with Tattered Angels Olive Vine and Coffee Shop glimmer mist. Than I layered a piece of pattern paper on top of that to add interest. I cut out another piece of bazzill bling cardstock and used my cuttle bug to cut a quickutz top note shape as the base for my title. I added interest to the top note shape by taking a Tim Holtz flourish mask and spraying Olive Vine and Coffee Shop glimmer mist on the top note shape. I took a sticker from my stash that says (my hero) my dad and placed it on the topnote shape. In the top left corner I punched out a 1/2" dark green cirlce out of some scrap cardstock in my stash. I placed a Prima flower center in silver on the circle and put pop dots underneath to give this some dimension. I also added a Creative Imaginations sticker that says wonderful you. To further enhance the corner I took a piece of string from my stash and glimmer misted it in Coffee Shop to match the Tim Holtz tolken I wanted to use. I tied the Tim Holtz token that says wonderful around the Prima flower center so that it could hang just below the sticker in the left corner. As a finishing touch the bottom of the card was puched with a top note edge punch and I added dimension to the shape by edging the paper with Coffee Shop glimmer mist. I hope you like this recessed window card.
