Project Life Week 24

Hi All, I am back with another Project Life Post. YAY, I am caught up and it makes me feel happy. We were visiting Corpus Christi this past weekend for my cousin's Graduation Ceremony. So I have an insert this week as well.

I used Emily Merritt's newly released - Hey There Journaling cards on my LO this time along with her Water Play Collection that is available at One Story Down. It is an awesome collection of journaling cards along with some labels as well.
I also used Emily's Hey Daddio and Big Bold Months as well. Loved all the burst of color on the LO.

For the insert, I punched out a few labels from the Water Play Collection and added them to the photos along with the Journaling cards from the same colleciton.

I used a few filler and other cards from SC Kit.

I hope you stop by at and One Story Down and Check out Emily Merritt's Collection.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Friends, I am back with my Project Life Week 23. I am officially One week behind. :)) I guess it was too good to be true when I was on top of my PL. But Life happens and now I am one week behind. Hope to catch up soon.

Scrapbook Challenge #4 on ICR

Hello Friends, Hope you had a great weekend and ready for the new week. I was down with a bit of fever and cold, but feeling much better now. So, my project life is a bit late. Hopefully by Tuesday I can post both weeks.

Here we are with our 4th Scrapbook challenge in ICR Forum. It is a sketch this time and we would love for you to play along with us.

Here is my layout. These are pictures of my niece Gauri and I just loved the expression on her face. I printed the black and white pictures and they were perfect for this bright pink background paper.

I die cut the adorable title using my Silhouette and used some Thickers from Studio Calico Kit,. In fact the papers are also from an SC Kit,. I used some washi tape, some MME Buttons and flags and some labels as well. I also used Emily Merritt's Thumbs Way Up also on my layout. Just love her designs.

Stamp - MFT Captured Memories
Paper - Studio Calico Kit
Ink - Memento Black
Other - Recollection Washi Tape, MME Buttons and flag accents
Digital - Emily Merritt Thumbs Way Up Design Collection

Happy Always

Hi Friends, Happy Sunday. Hoping that your week went well. We had a good weekend and I am here to share this layout that I did of my friend's daughter. This was just a impromptu picture she got on her mobile phone camera, but the emotions and the smile on her face was just priceless, so I had to create a layout with it.

I used Emily Merritt's Big Bold Letters Color to create the Title and added the always (a silhouette die cut). Of course I had to use Emily's Thumbs Way Up. Just love the sentiment that says "100%B Awesomeness". Some hodge podge of patterned papers from Stash and some chipboard buttons completed the page. Easy layout, but feels so good and happy just like the Girl.

You can stop by at The Lilypad to check out more Emily's designs. She has a new one for Summer. Watch out for a layout using those journaling cards.

Thanks For stopping by.

Traditional - a scrapbook layout

Hi Friends, Happy Friday. I hope you are having a good day and looking forward to the weekend. I am excited on Fridays :))

I wanted to share this quick layout that I did of my friend and her daughter in Traditional Indian Outfits. I just loved these pictures and they were perfect with this Blue and Pink Polka Dot paper that I had.

I kept it simple with the colors of the papers and the photos speaking for themselves. I had to add some butterfly embellishments and I am in love with the bottle cap stickers lately. So, I had  to use this one that says Girls Rule. I also used the 100% Awesomeness label from Emily Merritt's Thumbs Way Up Collection.

Here are some closeup's,

I used Studio Calico's new 12x12 Grid Paper as my background. I am in love with these papers. They make the perfect Nuetral backgrounds. And I am totally in love with the my new Silhouette blade. It makes cutting welded letters such a joy and Making my layouts look so much nicer.

Thanks for stopping by.

Project Life Week 22

Hi Friends,

Again sorry for the delay in my Project life weekly post. I wanted to use some of Emily Merritt's June BYOC Elements and so could not upload it earlier. You should stop by at The Lily-Pad to check out the latest Emily Merritt Designs.

I have used Emily's Shine and Bright Papers. Loved these two products and I had so much fun working on my PL this month.

I used Emily Merritt's Big Bold Months to create the filler card that says end of May and Start of June. Loved it.

Did not capture any closeup's this time. The weather has been cloudy and rainy this whole week :(

I am linking this up to The Mom Creative Blog and of course I am playing along with Kristin's Currently challenge.

Thanks for Stopping by.

Galveston Layout

Hello Friends, Happy Thursday. I wanted to share this layout that I did of our recent (well a few months ago) Galveston Trip. It was during my Birthday and Anniversary.

I used one of the sketches from the 28 days of Sketches from Lisa Day class on I love Lisa's sketches and this came together very quickly. I have also used Becky Higgins Photo Love stamp on the tag, some wooden flair from SC Atlantic collection, some sequins etc.

The Ocean Cures Everything Journaling card, Road Trip and Breathtaking Journaling cards are from Emily Merritt's designs. I used Ahoy and Headed That Way.

Here are some closeup's,

I love how Emily Merritt Designs go so well together with Studio Calico Atlantic Collection. I hope you stop by at The-Lilypad and check out her designs.

Thanks for Stopping by.
