This is another layout I created during my scrapbooking weekend. I had the brown floral paper but was having a tough time deciding what to do with it. Its hard to tell from the photo, but its quite glittery. I decided to "wing it" and hand cut the paper into a frame. I used a razor blade and freely cut it into a frame.
You can also faintly see on the pink cardstock I did some masking. I used my Cricut and Storybook cartridge to cut a circular design that was similar to cherry blossoms. I used that cut image as a mask.
The white and pink frame around the photo is actually the backside of the chocolate/frame paper. Those adorable branches and blossoms are dimensional stickers from Jolee's.
It was fun to make! I was nervous about it. This is a photo I really love of David and I. I wanted the layout to be just perfect. I've procrastinated doing for some time now. I'm glad I waited, I love the way it turned out!

Brand New House

It has been a couple of months since I have had time to do any scrappin, and let me tell you, I've missed it! I have missed out on it for good reason though....I bought my first house! David and I moved in on August 20th. We have been crazy busy painting, decorating, and general house stuff. This weekend I was able to do some scrapbooking, when a few girlfriends came to visit for just that purpose. Below is a layout I did about our new home. We took that photo on closing day, as proud new home owners! The original owners left us several house keys, so I thought it would be fun to use one of them on my page.
The paper is from My Little Shoebox, and that awesome die cut is from one of my favorite websites to shop,
Over the next few days I'll post more of my scrap weekend accomplishments. Hopefully now I'll find more time to get back to my hobbies!
