Hi everyone. Today I am sharing a multi-photo layout using a few photos I took at Busboys and Poets back in July. My mom, sisters and I stopped by this charming restaraunt for dinner before we went to see Taylor Swift in concert! We were so hungry... we all shared nachos which were delicious and then we ate our food. I can't believe all the food I ate. Of course I got a cheeseburger (my favorite).

I had these papers for some now from American Crafts, but haven't had a use for them, but I like the touch of teal with the pink on this layout. I don't know... it worked. HAHA. I like it. I used the tags to decorate mat the photos. Then I added die cuts and acrylics etc. until I was done messing with this layout.

I used the manila tag to trace another tag onto the patterned paper. Then I used the small hole punches to create the top eyelet circle. 

I added the "The Good Stuff" die cut at the top of the tag to add dimension. Otherwise, the top of the tag looked too empty.

I wasn't sure where I wanted to add this "Our Place" perspextive so I started moving it around the page... and then I just decided to add it to the photo. I did not want to over-crowd the top of the layout. The perspextive helps keep the focus on the photos.

I added some hearts and tucked a few scraps of paper behind the bottom photo to add a few more layers.

At the last minute, I decided to add the chipboard frame and the "this has my heart" label to the photo. I love using frames on my projects. They really make the photos pop.

I used another perspextive from Bramble Fox on the photo because I simply did not think I had enough embellishments... and I wanted to share how much I LOVED this burger and the sweet potato fries... yum!!

I had these planner envelope tags in my stash forever... I cut the holes off the left-side to use as a mat for the photo. I tucked a circle under the top flap and then added the "en route" die cut.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Happy hump day! Who's ready for fall? I love fall, it's my favorite season! My favorite part of fall is the cool, crisp fresh air and the changing leaves! For this layout, I decided to use this fun photo from a few years from when my family and I went to Larryland's Farm to pick apples. We had so much fun! The Potpourri collection is a perfect match and I just love the watercolor leaves paper!! Isn't it gorgeous?

I used several journaling cards at different angles to mat the photo.

I used a tab, word sticker and some die cuts to add a few more tails at the top of the photo. The foam squares really helped make the die cuts pop.

Then I used a transparency journaling card with the number two to place at the left-side of the photo to fill in the white space with a few more die cuts.

I totally love the vellum tape and mini word stickers so I incorporated the word stickers into my journaling and then used a black pen to outline the words.

Happy Saturday all. Just taking a minute to share this simple layout I created using the September kit from They asked me if I would be willing to create a few projects to share and I said ABSOLUTELY. And thank you... :) Click here to see their website. Like what you see, enter NICOLE10 in the coupon section prior to checking out and save 10%.

I love the variety of Pebbles Inc. stickers that came with the kit so I pretty much made this layout using lots of stickers. The washi and acrylics were from my stash. I decided to add the black and white butterfly washi from Prima to off set the bright colors. I totally love how this turned out with the scattered embellishments across the top of the photos.

Seriously, I love all the layers on this layout. The acrylic hearts from Bramble Fox really makes the layout pop. Lots of layers and pretty colors...Makes my heart happy.

I used a few foam squares to layer the sticker flowers. I glued the acrylics down using Tombow glue.

Who doesn't love that tiny bee? I love it. :)

I really love the washi tape on this layout. It really enchances the gorgeous stickers. I used another foam square to pop this flower up off the page. Isn't it lovely?

I used a few more stickers and another heart at the bottom to help fill in the white space.

A few more close shots at different angles.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Happy Friday everybody! Who's ready for the weekend?! I've been playing again... with my September Bramble Fox box and some Jillibean Soup papers and stickers. So much fun! For this layout, I went more with a grid-style layout... I had a hard time with the design of this layout since I was using two three different photos at different angles, but in the end, I was happy with how it turned out.

I added the sticker to the perspextive to make it pop. I think it really helps everything blend together nicely.

I love the this little card so I had to find some way to use it on this layout! 

I matted the photo using a Jillibean Soup Tag to help with the design of this layout. Then I stapled the heart sticker above the "Happy Days" sticker and added the cool tab. I love layers...

I added the die cut and puffy sticker to the card to make it more fun. Then I used a ruler and black pen to add my journaling.

And of course I had to include the adorable doggie to complete the layout. I love how this layout turned out. Such a fun layout to make too.

Thanks for visiting today. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hi friends! I am back today with another fun mixed media layout I created using the Savannah Dreams collection (love!). I've been into stenciling lately; just trying some different techniques and mediums on my projects. And it has been fun!!

For the base, I used whipped spackle and a flower stencil to create flowers in the background. Once the spackle dried, I added the pink gems to the center using Tombow glue. I used white gesso to alter the yellow star acrylic from Bramble Fox to make the banner pop.

Once I was satisfied with the placement of patterned papers and stickers, I smeared white gesso onto the patterned paper to wash out the color a bit. Then I splashed some pink paint and teal mist and a bit of white gesso all over the background.

I added the clear "so much fun together" sticker below the photo then a few additional word stickers and butterfly to pull the layout together.

For the bottom part of the layout, I added a few clear cloud stickers along the bottom to make this layout more whimsical.

Good morning everyone. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. It's been raining here all weekend, but I'm not complaining because we haven't had air in 4 days. The pipes are frozen and I'm not quite sure what we're gonna do yet. Lucky for us, the rain has made it much cooler! I've pretty much spent my weekend reading and scrapbooking. It was great. I even made a few cards to sell to raise money for the Light the Night Organization.

Yesterday, I created this fun mixed media project for Pinkfresh Studio's September challenge. This was so much fun! I used a soft gel medium to create a fun background for the layout and then once it dried, I added my embellishments etc. Then I smeared some white gesso here and there. Here is the inspiration I used. I love the colors.

I added lots of layers on this fun layout. I am a sucker for chipboard so I used the chipboard frames and flowers to decorate the center of the layout.

I used the stickers for the title at the bottom of the layout to fill in the white space.

Isn't this such a fun layout. I tried to make it playful and pretty for these adorable kiddos. 

I added the butterfly puffy sticker at the top and glued a button with a pink gem to the center of the button to add dimension. Then I added the arrow chipboard pointing down to the frame with a few more pink gems.

A added the cupcake puffy sticker and the enamels to the flower to add more dimension so the layout would not look too flat.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful week!
