Hello Fall-Playing With Digital

It's Wednesday, which means two things...Hump Day (aka ready for the weekend!) and it's the SOSN sale over at The Lilypad.  I decided to play with a digital template and a little mini kit that is in the sale for a digital layout.  I swear, the Pollys are all so talented with all their digital creations, that I feel lame playing in that league!  But, no time to print anything to work with and I wanted to play!

So, no close ups or anything, just the page!  I used most of the Mommyish template that is actually like a quick page that you can just drop photos into and mixed in a some papers from Amy Wolff Designs to make it a little different.

Sunflower Field-Lilypad Blog, Amber LaBau and Paislee Press

One thing I love when I see digital layouts is how many pictures they can get on a page if they want!  And it doesn't look cluttered!  So, I have done this in the past, but using a digital collage template is a great way to achieve that in traditional or hybrid scrapbooking!

I have an entire post over on the Lilypad blog about this layout and you can find that post HERE.  So I will just share highlights and pictures for you on this little blog!

The thing that drew me to this Paislee Press photo template was the fact there was a place for journaling and a title.  These are great for when you have a lot of similar pictures, but want to use them!

And I love mixing my traditional goodies with hybrid elements.  It's just a different creative process that mixes things up a little bit!

And I love Amber's handwritten elements.  I am not sure if it's her handwriting, but I wish I could write that pretty!

Well, that's all from me.  (It's Wednesday night and Criminal Minds plus Designated Survivor are getting ready to come on!)  Have a great Thursday!!!

Fall Leaves Home Decor With DecoFoil

I thought I would share this altered pallet I did for ThermOWeb.  I love fall decor, end of story!  I don't know if it's the colors, that the weather is getting cooler or what!  I just makes me happy.  And you know I love cooler weather, so I am sure that plays a part of it!

Supplies: Pattern Paper-Cocoa Vanilla Studio; Twine-May Arts; Adhesive, Toner Sheets, Decofoil-Therm O Web; Pallet-Jillibean Soup

I started by cutting a bunch of different shaped leaves out of my Silhouette.  I used three different shapes I think and I made all three the different colors of DecoFoil that I used.  I used a cut file from Juliana Michaels/17 Turtles that you can grab from HERE.  Love that cut file!  

I put the pumpkin on first and then layered the leaves around it with the 3D foam adhesive squares.  The more the better for this project!

I used a couple of the new colors of DecoFoil that came out over the summer.  Emerald Watercolor and Amber Watercolor, along with the Pumpkin color.  Honestly, when I was doing this I was trying to figure out how to get the watercolor foils in the project, but then everything just came together.  I was over thinking!

I am hoping over the three day weekend to schedule some blog posts ahead.  I have more than a few projects to share.  A lot are hybrid, but there are some paper ones also!  Have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!!!

Baby Girl-Amber LaBau Designs

So, you know I love Amber LaBau and her awesomeness!  Her new collection Brave New World is out at the Lilypad.  It is part of the BYOC and I fell in love with the colors as soon as I saw it.  One thing, it's a baby collection!  

You know me and how I love to change things up, so I had to make a layout with it.  And there might be a little announcement along with that layout!

Yep!  I am on the team as a hybrid girl.  I love her style and use of color so much, this is going to be a fun ride for the next year and a half!  AND I am floored by all the talent on the team.  Look these girls up, because they are amazing!!

So, let's see some close ups of the layout about Miss Ella and her cart!  I took these pictures pretty quickly after we got her cart.  She does love it, but she is a little on the "lazy" side, so no extra effort if she doesn't have to!!! This smile just melts my heart!

The saying was perfect for this page.  I created a cut file out of one of the elements from the kit and then just backed it with some paper.

And the feather paper with those colors.  I will be using that a lot I do believe!  Thanks for sharing in my happy news and for stopping by today.  I am at a work conference most of the week, so it will be a little quiet here, since I won't have a lot of time!  Luckily, close to home, just busy!!   Have a GREAT Wednesday!!!

Back to School Card-The LilyPad Blog

I shared this hybrid card over on the LilyPad blog a week or two ago.  You can find the post HERE, if you want some in depth details about how I did it!

For some reason, I am loving black card bases!  You will see, I have another one coming later in the month.  I think it's just because the colors pop on black.

I used chalk paint to mimic chalk dust on the blackboard!

That's all from me today.  Just a short and sweet post, kind of like the owl on the card!  Have a great day.

Using Digital Paint Elements in Hybrid Scrapbooking-The LilyPad

Did you know that you can use digital paint/masking elements on your pages?!  Even if you don't want to do a full blown hybrid layout, you can add a little to your pages in a few steps! 

This hybrid layout is up over on the LilyPad blog today and you can see all the details HERE.   This layout also has new products by Etc. by Danyale and Scrapping with Liz in the shop along with a bunch of other goodies!

Here are the three products I used from the store. I did flip the template, because it worked with my photo that I had already printed out before I had a plan!  Click on the pictures to go to the store!




Isn't that notebook paper cut fun?  And the splatters are perfect, without me making a mess!

The banner was so fun, I had to print it and use it.  I used the print and cut feature on the Silhouette with all the digital elements I used out of the kit and the template.

And another set of paint elements.  I used ivory cardstock and I love how soft they look on it.

That's all from me for this Friday!  Have a great weekend and I will be back with some more projects next week!

Corgis, Me and a Dino-A Flair for Buttons and Fancy Pants Designs

I love the three new Fancy Pants collections, but haven't gotten a chance to really really play with the two I picked up.  Well, after this past weekend, that is no more!  I did this layout for A Flair for Buttons blog that went up yesterday.

I needed a little boost and this sketch is up over on Paper Issues blog, so I decided to play along with it. I love how it turned out.  I didn't change much either, just kind of went with it.

I used a couple of sets of flair...Insta Fun and Best Summer Ever 2.  I like that you can mix the sets and they still look seamless together. This piece just fit right inside that camera die cut!

And the "insta cool" button was a no brainer for a picture of me with  the dogs AND a dinosaur!!!
