Together (The Cut Shoppe)

Hello!  I'm back today with a layout I made for The Cut Shoppe to be shared on my blog.  I used the Be Mine cut file set, and choose to use one of the cut files and cut it several times.  I used my February Hip Kit (which I just killed in the weekend), and I painted the "love" cut files ombre with my water colours.

The photo is of Brielle and our cat Charlie.  Brielle loves Charlie (and our other cat Lola), but can be very rough with him.  I just love this sweet photo of them!

Here is the cut file set:

Thanks for looking!

Scrapbooking, my neglected blog and life

Hello!!  Yes its been ages and life has been rolling on.  Firstly I'm so sorry about my absence, and I'm going to be honest, 4 kids is very full on and leaves little time for keeping up with my blog and YouTube Channel.  However, I have still been creating, mostly in small increments of time.

Today is Brielle's 3rd birthday, all she wanted was a pink cake, it was the easiest cake request I've ever had from one of my kids.  Last week I turned 40, and exactly the week before Sam turned 10! Its been birthday central around here, and I still can't believe the ages Sam and I are!

Little darling and her cake!

Azaria helped me bake the cake.

Sam had a Nerf War party at the park, and then we came back to our place for cake.  At his request I made an X-Box and the Controller.  So happy with how it turned out!!

GF chocolate brownie on the bottom, and chocolate cake on the top - all decorated with buttercream.

10 candles!!!

And here is a current photo of Ava, who is nearly 5 months!  She looks so much like Sam as a baby, and like Brielle she loves soft blankets too.

I'm currently designing for The Scrappery (with my projects being shared on their YouTube Channel) and The Cut Shoppe.  I also subscribe to The Hip Kit Club for my own scrapping pleasure!  I'm really behind with sharing on here, so prepare yourself for lots of layouts!!  I'm starting today with layouts for The Cut Shoppe.

I've shared these layouts on The Cut Shoppe Blog.  The first one uses the Wreathed in Love cut file set, and I used the Love Always collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

This next layout has SnapChat photos with the bunny filter of all our kids and uses the Bless Your Heart cut file set.  I used all four heart designs, and did some mixed media with acrylic paint in the background.  I used my February Hip Kit.

My final layout uses The Half of It background cut file, which I turned upside down.  I did the packaging technique with my watercolours and applied gold acrylic paint with a baby wipe on white cardstock, and then layered the cut file over the top.  Once again I used my February Hip Kit.

I hope you enjoyed this long post.  I'll be back tomorrow with my recent projects for The Scrappery.
