Third Time is a Charm

Do you tweak your layouts after they are complete?

I created a layout showing a sequence of photos where my grandson did not want his photo taken. He closed his eyes and began peeking to see if I was still there. The first version

The second version

The final version (my final versions always end up on my heart book holders)

I used vellum for journaling - who tells your story? It is as important to share the story or stories about the photo or photos. 

I love this smile and I want him to ALWAYS celebrate everything in his life!

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

Below you will find out how you can get FREE shipping on your FIRST Holiday Expression order, you must order through me.
There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
