Some new lines....SEI and Bo Bunny...

Wanted to share another layout I did with the Corrinne line from SEI!  This page is up on the blog, today!  The colors in this line are SOOO bright and cheery, you just HAVE to do pages about being outside!

I just LOVE this shade of kelly green in these papers!  YES, that is hand stitching around the outside...haven't done that in a LONG time!  :)

My other favorite thing are all the adorable die-cuts...there are SO many in the pack, and they all are double sided with different colors, so you can pick which side you like best!

I also got to play with some of the new BoBunny Ad Lib line, which I got from the owner of the LSS I work at to create some sample layouts with for when they carry the line.

This page I submitted for the final week of the Crowned Contest at Scrapdango.  You had to showcase a "talent" on your page, use and describe your style, and also use a go-to technique.

Charlotte LOVES pens...not crayons, not pencils...pens.  And she LOVES to doodle all day long!

I actually took some of her "doodles" and framed them in the little frames which I had cut out from some of the patterned papers.

My style almost always includes the following things on a page: thin black line outlining photos and elements, photos with white mats, stitching or other texture, dimension with pop dots or large items, a little dab of a bright contrasting color (in this page it's yellow) and a strong visual triangle using the "rule of three".

The technique I chose to use was fussy cutting. I cut out all the frame and their insides from patterned paper and a whole bunch of small circles from the patterned paper as well.

I really love how this page came out and can't wait to use more of these papers!

I'm SOOOO excited to have my first Clip It Up project to share with you on Wednesday!  Stay tuned!

LOVE how the embellies on the first one glistens and WOW on the hand stitching! You already know how much I adore the "doodler" layout!!!

These are both amazing!! I especially love the kite and cloud in the corner and also the whole doodler page. Can't pick just one thing there. The whole page is perfect! :)

I totally heart the one with doodling, just so beautifully done! The first one is just so fun!

the embellishments on both pages are AWESOME! I love the rainbow on the first and how on the second you let all the little things shine--GREAT job!
