Pink Paislee Solstice Summer Beach Album Cut Files

Hello!  This post is for Amy, who asked about the cut files I used for my Summer Beach album I posted here using Pink Paislee's new Solstice collection.
Here's the pockets and folders from the Silhouette shop I used:
Pocket Folder Design #33215 - Love this one, you could make a whole mini with this.
And the last pocket I used, I cannot tell the original design name.  I tweaked it to make it a little different.  Sharing it with you so you can download the exact same one I used.  Just click here to download.  I just punched my own hole.
Hope this helps, Amy.

Elle's Studio July Gallery and Kit Reveal - Part 2

Hello, back again to share the other two projects I did for the Elle's Studio Inspiration gallery using the July kit, cut files, stamps, and the Shine collection.
 I started with watered down gelatos for the background, then masked with Distress ink (the circles), then added stamping.  The circle stamps are from the Shine - Happiness Is Stamp set.

And then last, is my Project Life, week 20.  I used a Bath and Body Works card for my weekly title card.  Mixed in April and May kits with the July kit here since it worked for Mother's Day and end of school year.

Thank you for stopping by!

Elle's Studio July Gallery and Kit Reveal

Summer is rolling by.  Independence Day, house guests, and a certain little girl turning 6 and having a big party.  Lots going on.  Hope everyone is enjoying Summer.  I feel like it is going too fast!
It's time for a new kit, an exclusive stamp, and cut files from Elle's Studio!    

Sharing one project I made with the kit, stamps, and cut files.  It is another good month at Elle's Studio!  Completely inspired by the square cut file border.  Everything else just fell into place.
Closeup of using the July exclusive Life is Good stamp.  I inked with two different shades of Prima chalk ink in blue to give a slight ombre effect.  Also, can you spot the yellow polka dot washi?  That is the new Washi Tape Stamp.  I stamped onto vellum, hit it with a little heat from heat gun to set the Prima chalk ink to make permanent, and then cut just like I would washi tape.
 The photos were printed into 1.40x1.40 squares to fit.  Other squares were backed with pattern paper from the Shine collection or painted with watercolors.
 I used the new Shine Collection and wood veneers, the July kit, cut files, and Life is Good stamp for this layout.
Saving the best for last...SUMMER SALE at Elle's Studio!  Stock up now!

Cocoa Daisy July Viewfinder Reveal - Road Trip Mini Album

Hello.  Popping in for a quick post to share my last project for the reveal of the Cocoa Daisy July Viewfinder kit.  On sale to everyone.  Loved these kits, as you can see from what I've made.  So go grab them.

I used all the kits except the pattern paper kit.  Used the free cut files and printables available to subscribers.  Had a ball with this.  This isn't a mini about a trip, but about where I live.  Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life, Week 19 | Cocoa Daisy July Viewfinder Reveal

Kits are on sale to everyone today.  This is another great one.  As I have said before, I cancelled all other kit clubs because Cocoa Daisy gives me the same style but more for my money.  

So here is my Project Life for week 19.  I used the Day In the Life and its add-on; and the Main and its add-on.  May started the crazy busy-ness of the year, so selecting photos to just help summarize the week can be overwhelming.  
I made a collage of photos and left them as is since they fit in the 4x6 pocket.  I used vellum to stitch "documented" onto it and added my journaling them slipped them both in the pocket.
 I really loved the stamps and the Me and My Big Ideas stickers.
I cut this pocket card and then layered on top my photo, then added the ombre stitching.

I mixed the scallop stamp with the saying "Some Day We Will..."
I had a lot of photos like I said.  And I almost didn't include this one, but thought how nice it would be Emma to look back on of her classmates.  So I stitched one of the cards on top.

Main Kit Only Layout | Cocoa Daisy

Happy Monday. Cocoa Daisy had their reveal for the July Viewfinder kits on the 28th and add-on's are on sale to subscribers.  Then on sale to every on July 1st at midnight.  This is definitely my newest favorite kit.  What I loved:  the vintage/retro feel, the stitching stencil, the colors/patterns, the embellies, the stamps.  Okay, all of it!  It was such fun kits to work with.

Here is my main kit layout.

I first masked and sprayed, but wasn't enough of the look I wanted. I then used the globe cut file (cut files are free to subscribers) and masked modeling paste mixed with green mist. That gave me more texture and color. I used more of the cut files and the printables. The stamps are so perfect for mixed media. They are so tiny...the scallop and the bird, just framed that right side so well. I wanted my title to go across the photo, but then decided to use a longer piece of vellum. Changes the whole look being on vellum.
I will reveal more here on my blog this week.  Enjoy your week!

Cocoa Daisy July Viewfinder Sneaks

Well Hello!  Have been away on our beach vacation and still feel a little on vacation ;)

But was excited to dig into the July Cocoa Daisy Viewfinder kits.  Here's what I got, pretty much all kits, except the pattern paper.  So the main and its add-on; the Day in the Life and its add on.  If you are a subscriber, the cut files and printables are free.  You could get a lot scrapped with just that main kit and those freebies.  

Onto my sneaks.  Here is main kit only.
And the rest of these sneaks use all of the kits I got.  I really had a blast with them.  And as you see, there is a travel theme.  But I did not feel the kits were overly themy.  And all of my projects have nothing to do with traveling.  You'll have to see.

Like everyone in the scrapbooking community, I am in shock to hear of Two Peas in a Bucket closing.  But I think the scrapbooking community is at a whole new level with social media and kit clubs.  So get on Instagram and Facebook and start following other scrapbookers.  Search the hashtag #scrapbooking and you will see lots of posts.  And follow Cocoa Daisy.  There's always giveaways and chances to win.  And there's a chance to win a Daisy Box going on now.

I would love to have you join us at Cocoa Daisy.  I have loved the kits since October, and we have a brand new, easier and cleaner looking website.  A very friendly place to feel at home.  Check us out on reveal night tonight at 9 p.m. EST.
