Sending Joy Collection

Hi friends, I wanted to just hop on my blog today to share a project I created using the gorgeous Studio Light Sending Joy Collection! This is such a lovely product line! I have photos of the layout I created for my 8×8 Studio Light Planner! I will leave links to the products I have used below as well!

I created an interactive page by scoring an 8×12 inch paper at 7 inches on the 12 inch length. This creates a nice flap for adding photos.

I added an interactive foldout portion on the inside of the flap. This has space for another 6 photos. I created tabs on either side of the fold out piece to keep it in place.

Here you can see the flap when it is folded out! I love how this adds extra memory keeping space. I used the 4×12 inch strip of paper that I trimmed off the 12×12 to create this fold out section.

On the left inside of the page, I have space for two more photos! I embellished my project with cut aparts and embellishments from the 6×6 elements paper pad. Check the links below to the products I used for this project!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Hi friends! I hope you are all doing well! I have a layout to share today for the Hip Kit Club September 2021 kits and the Weekly Challenge! You can head over to the Hip Kit Club Facebook Group to check out the fun challenge!

The gorgeous Best Day collection from Pink Fresh Studio takes center stage for this layout as I explored a two color color scheme for this project! I love the combination of the soft blue and warm ochre hues in this product line…perfect for this fall themed layout documenting a lovely river walk my son and I took recently!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to let me know if you have any questions about this project or the Hip Kit Club September 2021 kits!


Studio Light Slimline Card

Hi friends! I am sharing a slimline card today using a bunch of products from Studio Light!

To create my project, I started with the SLSJCD53 Die Set. I trimmed the pine needle section from some white card stock. I sprayed the die cut piece with some mica spray from my stash. I used the Tim Holtz Frosted Juniper spray. I cut the next largest rectangle die from white card stock and layered the pine needle die cut over that (I adhered them together with glue). I cut three snowflakes from white card stock as well and adhered them to the card front. I added the ornament and poinsettia pieces from the SLSJDCB08 Elements paper pad. I added silver twine to the ornament and silver Stickles to the snowflakes, ornament and poinsettia. I added the card front to a slimline base to finish the card! I used SLESStamp86 for my sentiment. I heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Silver embossing powder. I used a die from SLESCD36 to cut out the sentiment. I added it to my card with foam adhesive.

Here are links to products I used:

I hope this inspires you to create some pretty holiday cards! Have a wonderful day!
