Good morning Nerds!
Do you ever look at your papers and know exactly which photos will work and then have your page just come together with no frustration and second guessing? Well, that’s what happened to me with these yummy Cloud 9 papers and embellies! I opened my pizza box and a couple of hours later…three projects that I’m happy to share! These papers and embellies are so fun and colourful…the perfect break from the blustery cold that’s outside!!
Here is my first layout…a quick one using more of those delish MFT dies…this time straight to my heart and love. I love being able to use theme related products other than the theme that they are intended for! Here is Island Love…photos of my daughter at Centre Island, a favourite annual tradition.
My second project went together even quicker than the first one! The colours of these Cloud 9 papers really inspired me…so much so I even got a little dirty! Love this line…it really is “good stuff”!
Here are my girls being sweet and sassy in Port Elgin…
I have been having a blast playing with these delish papers from Chic tags…the colours are so fun and vibrant!! Perfect for some aquatic adventures in paradise!! LOL!!
I was so inpsired by a pinterest layout I posted last month that had diecut clouds out of its background that I decided to give it a go…I was too nervous to bust out my cameo to cut a full 12×12 sheet so I trimmed my papers down to 3.75″ so they would fit through my big shot. This was supposed to be my practice sheet but before I knew it , I had it put together and stuck down!! LOL!! Did strips of paper and washi tape behind the cut outs…super quick and easy peasey!!
Maegan couldn’t wait to get in the water and play with the dolphins at the Moon Palace Resort. She was beaming from ear to ear that entire day and she kept coming up to me afterwards and just whispering…’Mom…that was the best day ever”. Love making this kid’s dreams come true…Cancun 2015
I had to print some photos from our adventure in Mexico…and when I realized how fun the papers from the Cloud 9 celebrate line worked with them…I got busy!! And even a little inky!!! LOL!! Had this great quote stencil so I sprayed my background before diecutting some accordian flowers…even added some washi tape…which FYI…if you’ve ever tried to cut and futz them together you know they are pretty finicky and come apart easily. I added the washi tape after I cut them out and the tape helped to keep the flowers from ripping apart AND added a fun design to the centers!! WAAHHHOOOOO!!! I’m learning to love washi tape for more than it’s good looks!! LOL!!
Here is a pic of Maegan standing and RIDING Jon Paul and Carlo…
We were all excited for our ultimate dolphin experience but Maegan was almost vibrating with excitement! She absolutely LOVES dolpins and it has been on her bucket list for most of her 11 years. She was nervous and a little worried that they may attack her but from the moment she got in the water with them it was instant love. She couldn’t have had a bigger smile while doing the foot push across the enclosure…and to have done this adventure with her Godfather truly made it THE Ultimate dolphin experience. Cancun – January 2015
Since it is washi awareness month here at Scrapbook Nerds I thought I’d play a little. I don’t usually do the altered kinda stuff but my daughter needed a little something extra for her girlfriend’s birthday gift so I thought this would work!
I covered the wood clipboard with washi tape and embellished with some of my Chic Tag paper scraps…It was a big hit and she loved it! Best of all…it was super easy!! It started out as a photo frame…I covered white cs with washi tape and die cut the “C” and the leaves…
But then my daughter realized she didn’t have a photo she could put in it…so it became a note pad holder and card! LOL!!
And finally the gold embossed papers in this line demanded some attention of their own…so here is the cute little purse shaped mini album I created with them….easy peasy!!
Ready for a little spring? Need to brighten your day? Pick up some of these Cloud 9 designs and get creating! Be sure to link your project back here to share with the rest of us! Thanks for letting me share!! WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
