the photo was taken a few years at my mom's wedding..

Jewel of the Sea- PPPR reveal

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here today to share a cute layout I created using some of the fun sea and beach themed cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon..
It's the middle of winter for us here in Finland I'm dreaming of warmer weather and trips to the beach...LOL
So, here is what I created:
wanted to keep it pink cause the photo is of my daughter which was taken a long time ago one summer here in Finland.. We have beautiful summers here :D

How about some close ups and details:
The clusters of shells and star fish, well those cutting files are in the "Day at the Beach" cutting file.

The title I created using some free fonts which I have in my font stash.. 
the fish netting I created myself..

The coral is in the "Sea Life" cutting file and the little pearls are just circles I cut with my Cameo.

and of course I had to add a close up of my little girl who's not so little anymore..

Warm and cozy-SOUS die cut reveal

Hi everyone..
I'm here today to  share my layout that I created as my design team project for our "Warm and Cozy" die cut challenge over at S.O.U.S

Here's what I created:
I found these digital papers by Cartabella and thought they were perfect for this challenge..
I printed the papers for the background and then for the die cuts, I flooded the die cuts with the prints in the SIL software, then did the print and cut with my Silhouette Cameo..

How about a few close ups and some details:
 The photo is a bit dark, but its of  my hubby and our beagle dog, Bemsky. Our dog is such a hugger, as soon as you sit down on the couch, he's all over you :)

I actually created these book die cuts myself in the SIL software..

I also added some big brown snowflakes (to match my color scheme), the window in the background to make look like you were warm and cozy inside :) 

because its a masculine layout, I decided to add some stars and a few hearts, plus snow flakes cause the photo was taken last week while we were having a snow storm :)

and there you have my Warm and Cozy layout for our die cut reveal..
Do stop by SOUS and check what amazing projects the rest of our die cut team have created for Fridays reveal..
Till next time fellow scrappers..

I love you layout-CDD reveal

I'm  here today to share a fun "I love you" themed layout I created as my design team project for Craftin Desert Diva's..  
I love coffee and when I say that, I mean " I LOVE coffee!"..LOL  I decided to create a fun detailed layout show casing my love for coffee and got to use some of the stamps from the "Say it Big" sentiment set..

Here is what I created:
So super fun :D

how about a few close ups and some details:

I decided to stamp the sentiment "I love you" from the Say It Big stamp set 
onto a tab and then used foam tape to attach it to the frame around my photo. 
Then adding some fun details using coffee beans and leaves :)

I also added the sentiment "Hugs" from the Simply Said sentiment set by tucking it in 
behind the cup to go along with the rest of the saying I created ..

I wanted to add some fun coffee related deails..

I actually have a tattoo of a coffee cup and heart on my lower forearm :)
added a photo of it to my layout..

I used my "Love you a Latte" cartridge and my Cricut Imagine, along with the great Sentiment stamps by Craftin Desert Diva's to create this layout.

You can buy it HERE
