Quick Quotes Savannah Layout





Using my Cricut Explore  I enjoyed making this wonderful two page layout of a Father and Son trip to Savannah.
To make this banner, I used the Cricut cartridge called Blackletter. By choosing the same color for the Titlewords as well as the top piece of the banner. After hitting CUT, the different mats appear. When the exact mat with the letters appear, hit the "Edit" button, and arrange the letters in order along the banner, centering them, and leaving space between each as well as turning them slightly with the curve of the banner itself. Leave them, and hit DONE. The mat then is inserted and the letters were cut as you see now. I then used them on the addition page. My problem was that the center negative pieces were all kept except for the ones for "S" so it looks slightly wrong.
The papers I used were from Quick Quotes as well as a Black, Burgundy and cream pieces of cardstock.
Hope you enjoy the masculine layouts.

Kennedy Grace Vintage Tea Cup





    I know the Summer Coffee Blog Hop is over but here is a card I made just for the fun of it!! I love using Kennedy Grace Vintage Tea Cup stamp set and can say it is my fav' of all the Kennedy Grace Creations Stamps. I love the roses engraved on this beautiful tea pot and cup and enjoy choosing different colors to go together.
    I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with Copic Sketch Markers in Y11, Y13, Y15, 0, YG06,YG11, BG10, BG11, BG13, C1, C3, C5, and a Multiliner in 0.3. I stamped the border and the cup first using my MISTI tool, and then masked the cup and stamped the tea pot. By setting the pair over a bit, there was plenty of room for the sentiment. The Sequins were Sunshine on the Daisies which is so many shapes and in such a pretty yellow and irridescent. I hope you are enjoying your summer and have time to have coloring fun like I do!
   As for the rest of the card, it consists of Graphic 45 Courture Gorgeous pattern paper matched with 2 cardstocks that highlight the Copic colors. And I added a soft yellow seam binding bow.
You can see my post over on Kennedy Grace Creations Blog too.

Melissa Frances Shabby Chic album






Using all Melissa Frances pieces, I put this adorable album together. I love using my Zutter Bind-it-all to connect all the pages and it stands up better that way. It is a MF album which I took apart and rebound after gluing all the papers together like I wanted. This came as a kit and is not my original work but "scraplifted" as I saw fit. Hope you enjoy it!

Patriotic Kennedy Grace Splendid Roses





Hi, I am featuring this card to celebrate Independence Day over on the Kennedy Grace Blog.  I am using the Kennedy Grace Splendid Roses stamp set because it seemed the perfect way to use the red, white and blue for a totally Patriotic themed card. I loved that the sequin lot is For Our Hero's which is a fabulous mix of sequins in red, white, blue, and silver (best seen in the last picture), and added beads in different sizes as well (best seen in the 3rd picture). How fun and so perfect!!
  The vibrant colors I chose are Copic Sketch Markers in: R22, R27, R29, B18, B21, B24, C1, C3, 0, and a Multiliner 0.3.
  The papers were Recollections blue cardstock, and Jillibean Soup Staples II in Red Salt which is a chevron pattern on one side and red with dots on the other. I chose the chevron! The stamp "God Bless America! is by Motivet Rubber Stamps, CM 052 F.
  I hope you are enjoying your July 4th with your family and friends and take time out to thank our MilitaryVeterans who make it all possible!! Happy Independence Day, America!!
