From this layout I'm using Crate Paper called Peppermint, and some card-stock for the background. Added 2 different fonts, the blue one is thickers and the red is by Basic Grey, I also added some red thicker ascents (they are a bit old). To pull the page together I added some doilies (I'm really liking them on my pages lately), red thread, dimensional stickers by Recollections (they are older too) and splattered white paint to make it look like snow. I just love this photo of my son on his 1st Xmas, so my thought was to keep this page pretty simple and have all the focus on the photo. To do that I made sure to use the "darkest" color to mat the photo and then working around it. After all that's done, I made sure to make a visual triangle with accents and red dots to bring the page together! Enjoy

I'm loving the way this layout turned out! over all its a bit busy, but since the photo is simple I believe it works very well together. The main background paper is by Crate Paper called Archives . The other papers from Crate Paper are the red-blue -white stripe paper and the Yellow stripe paper also the elements page on the right. All the other paper is from Echo Park paper. I used some brown thickers for the title, and made embellishment with punches and black paint.
I titled my layout Gurmeza (our last name) because this photo is of the new addition to the family that will carry that name down. This photo was taken in the hospital when my husbands family came to visit us and see Little Ben, the first grandchild in the family! Very proud moment for grandpa and the guys.

Really quick post while my little guy is taking his nap. these cards I made a while ago but didn't get a chance to post them. I used a 12x12 journaling page from Crate Paper, I believe, added a birthday sentiment, twine and gems. Adhered it with foam and you have a small and easy bday card! I'm really happy with the way they turned out! Enjoy!

This layout was inspired by "Glitter girl" over at 2 peas with THIS adventure. For one I just loved the layout itself, the way the photos are placed on a mat, and the layering of paper. The other thing is a bolder pattern of paper in the back, and the challenge was "to create with some bold papers that may have challenged you in the past". Love that idea and I know I’m planning to view that video again to get some more examples. Love Shimelles work!
Products I mainly used was Crate Paper, Peppermint collection. I pulled out 2 card stock paper, blue and grey; 2 papers from Crate Paper and their journaling 12x12 page. For the title I used some black thickers; and added some white paint with a white jell-pen and a doily to pull the layout together. In the end I added some black asterisk from the letter stickers to make the visual triangle with the title.

Sorry I haven't really been around to post much. kinda took a little break but I am back with some great posts that will be coming soon! Can't wait to show you what I've been working on this last few weeks! Lately I've been inspired by Shimelle.com (aren't I always) and how she shows the products she will be using in her videos. I thought it would be fun to do something similar on my blog posts. So I will be showing you the products I used on a layout, or whats left of the papers I was using to make a project. Because sometime I'm just not sure where my layout or project will take me, and what pretty things I might find after I've started my page. Here is a peek at what I've been working on lately! Hope you stick around the next few weeks and let me know what you think! Thanks!
