Cutie Pie

Well I finished another lo. Two in one day is good for me, but with this one I used the sketch from the Pages in Time Kit of the Month group. I always find my production is sped up when I use sketches. Admittedly I only used papers from the kit. I am not good at using only what is given me. Guess I am a rebel! LOL!

Pages in Time DT Challenge LO

I finally have a lo to show you. It didn't come out like I had envisioned, but they seldom do. The design team had to create a lo using the new design team logo. I used the new Tim Holtz papers that I purchased from Karen's store. I love this paper pack! The big pointed scallop is a svg file I downloaded from  Penny Duncan Creations. She has the best files I have seen! I also used my cricut carts. The half circles were cut with George and Basic Shapes. The flourishes are from Home Decor with a little help from DS. The flowers are prima of course, except the very bottom one, which I made. Future tutorial coming for that, so stay tuned here or at PIT. I decided to try and make a pearl flower, and it came out alright ,but I will have to figure out a way to improve it. Thanks for stopping by!

Best Buds

I used some old Basic Grey papers for this layout. It is the Hang 10 collection. Boy pages are always a struggle with me. I do prefer to play with flowers, but I know I need to get used to doing them. The stitching is all by hand using a black gelly roll pen. I used border punches again and used the leftover strips underneath the picture. No waste. The stars and circles were cut with my cricut expression.
