Nerd Girl, Sarah, Meets Crate Paper, Notes & Things
I was so happy that I got to use Crate Paper’s Notes & Things collection this month! I absolutely love it! I admit it is a little girly for a mama of four boys, but you’ve probably already figured out from seeing my layouts that I don’t care about using pink or flowers on a boys layout!
Coffee & Colossians
I love that the ephemera pack in this collection actually comes with some wood veneers! How cool is that?! Totally loved the ampersand and knew I wanted to use it on this layout!
I really love layering and that cute chipboard banner was a perfect piece to layer on top to give my layout a little more dimension!
I am OBSESSED with butterflies and I LOVE the gorgeous stitched butterflies that are in this collection! They also go along with this month’s stitching challenge! I’m pretty sure you can “cheat” and use pre-sewn goodies!! lol I knew I had to use it on this layout too because God and I have a special butterfly thing going on.
Colour My Life Beautiful
For this layout I channeled my inner Wilna Furstenberg! lol I have definitely been in an inky mood lately and I love the way this layout turned out!
I’m going to post a tutorial on how I did this background next week, so be sure to check in there to check it out!
The cut file is a free one from I heart studio. She has some beautiful cut files there with the scripty fonts and all sorts of goodness!
My last layout this month was a picture taken of my youngest sister’s 15th birthday. It’s funny that she’s getting so old now because I remember when she was born (I was 17) and I said, “when she’s 17, I’ll be 34” seems like that was just yesterday!!
I stitched around the outside of the layout and also on the die cut feather with my sewing machine.
