Graphic 45 World's Fair Layout of Florence


  Using the Graphic 45 World's Fair papers called Balloon Bouquet, I fussy cut tons of images out of the top half of one sheet and used the 4 inch bottom of it for the bottom part of page 2. I slammed all of my beautiful pictures of all the iconic building shots in Florence side by side, and matted with the balloon side. Using another 2 sheets of that same pattern paper, I mounted the elements.  Also, the tag in the bottom right page is from another line of Graphic 45 called Cityscapes and then added a "Italy" stamp.
   For my Cricut cuts, I chose Anna Griffin's Cricut cartridge Soiree Lettering-Grace Script for the title using an orange-red cardstock. The doilies were cut using another Anna Griffin cartridge using a very light taupe color.  Cutting one in half and placing in strategic areas in order to cover fussy cut openings. ;)  With the fussy cut balloons and flowers were placed flat and then popped up to add dimension.  Hope you enjoy this double layout and leave me a comment. Always enjoy reading your responses!
   This was very time consuming but I think the hardest part was to find all the sheets of paper since many stores had run out of it!!

Early Bird Layout using 2 different paper lines

    So glad to see this week's challenge on PPC about foods from different countries!! I have so many pictures to scrap with that kind of theme!! Here are photos I snapped of the divine breakfast. The Bed and Breakfast we stayed at in Italy called Florence Chic! If you are ever there I recommend you stay! Also, notice the delicious desserts on the breakfast tray? They are homemade by the owner's mother each day!! Most often, we were the only ones there so I felt guilty if I didn't "indulge" because I didn't want her feelings to be hurt! HA!

Layout: Using 2 different paper lines that seemed to coordinate, I managed to piece this together seamlessly. The left page is Bo Bunny Trail Mix Collection from Field Journal, and the right Kaiser Kraft Hunt and Gather from Watch.  Don't they seem to just match perfectly?
    The flowers are from die cutting fabric with a Sizzix Bigz die and glued together with a glue gun. Centers are buttons from my stash. Also, added black tulle to imply leaves. On the left page, the birdcage is die cut with American Craft Pow, glitter paper. The title,"Early Bird" was cut using a font from the computer. Photos are double matted and placed side by side. The coffee cup is made on my Cricut Explore which I love!! All edges are distressed with Clearsnap ink, Chestnut Roan.

DCWV September Ocean Breeze Layout

I loved these papers from the DCWV Ocean Breeze stack, and since I had these fabulous pics of my daughter in a matching shirt, I enjoyed using them yet again! This is her favorite quote as well, so how appropriate it was to have it with her.
 I used my Cricut Explore and their Love freebie, I cut a heart and removed the cursive word from the center to use with this Mother Teresa quote though it was supposed to say: "Not all of us will get to do great things. But we can do small things with great love." So that's why I put the title as "Love". The rose was constructed with a 4 inch circle of paper and then I made a small one to insert in the middle. The banner on the bottom left, was done using the Fiskars banner tool, and then cut to a smaller size. Using a 1/8" hole punch and The Twinery twine In The Navy, strung through. I love how it came out!!
Entered here on DCWV Facebook page as well as from their DCWV blog post on Stack-a-holic challenge. Loved how it turned out!!
