Cocoa Daisy August Modern + Vintage Sneaks

I cannot believe it is time already for a new kit at Cocoa Daisy.  Join me Sunday night at 9 p.m. EST, as I will be hosting reveal night!  My first, so be gentle.  Would love to meet you and chat, and, of course, hear what kits you decided to purchase.  I got them ALL!

Onto my sneaks.  Definitely felt a modern + vintage feel from these kits with lots of pops of color.  Honestly, these are my most favorite projects...ever!  Especially one layout.

Main kit only sneak:  (if you were part of the crop this past weekend, you saw this layout)
This next layout uses all of the kits, except for the Day in the Life.  This one uses almost every single pattern paper from the kits, so you can get a good feel for the colors.
And these last sneaks are from the Day in the Life, its Add-On, and Thriftshop add-on.
See you Sunday night!

Pinkfresh Studio Guest Designer

Hello!  I am here...summer just keeps going by and I have neglected my blog. 

I was so thrilled to get to guest design for Pinkfresh Studio recently using the new kit.  You can see more about the kit here.  A really quick post here, just showing what I did.

Hope Summer is going well.  Ours is almost over.  I am not ready for school to start.

Thanks for stopping by.

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!
