Little Yellow Bicycle 's Elizabeth Park Collection

Hi there! I wanted to share with you this layout I created using the gorgeous Elizabeth Park Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle. You can find the entire Elizabeth Park Collection at HappyNScrappin'. 

The colors make me think of spring, but you don't have to use them for a spring layout. They are very versatile. I cut out some of the butterflies from the patterned paper to adhere to the layout. I also created a little banner from the papers as well. The flowers, yellow brads and floss are from my collection, but everything else can be found in the HappyNScrappin' store

Below are the products from the store that I used.... click on the link to take you to that individual item!

My Mind's Eye Lush 2 Navy Layout

Welcome to another Tuesday at Happy N Scrappin' with me Gaby
Today I got to play with My Mind's Eye Lush 2 Navy Collection
I have three sister, so when I saw this paper and this stamp, I thought, perfect!
I stamped and heat embossed the four ladies and the "love" circle stamp
and stamped with white ink the sentiment.
After taking my pictures, I realized I had not added a title!
I used my Gypsy and the Heritage cartridge to weld the words "memories" and "sisters"- and since this cart does not offer the shadow option, I decided to doodle around the letter for added dimension.  I also popped the entire title with 3 dimensional foam.
I played with Photoshop and printed my pictures as one 10"x5" piece.
I also added a blue tint which darken the pictures.  I did print in sepia and B&W, but my sister insisted it does look really good in blue and in person!
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!

Egg Hunt Layout using MM's Flower Patch

Good Morning! I hope you are all doing well this Thursday morning! The sun is shining and it is a beautiful day out here in Missouri. We have had some gorgeous weather the past week. 

While enjoying the weather, I remembered that Easter was coming up. I have been working with the Flower Patch Collection from Making Memories, and it is PERFECT for Easter and Spring layouts.  You can find the collection in the HappyNScrappin' store

I love the photos I took a couple of years ago at my parent's farm of my kids finding eggs in the yard. They all turned out really well, and look great with these papers. 

I had the doily in my stash, as well as the flowers that I used in this layout. I used an edge punch to give a lacy look to the flowered paper. 

Below I have some closeups for you... 

Those butterflies are rub ons. Aren't they cute? You can see the punched edge here better, as well as the distressing that I did to the edges of the layout with my Imaginisce D-Stress tool which you can find in the HappyNScrappin' store

Below are the products from the store that I used... all you have to do is click on the link below each image to  take you to it in the Store.
