Hello friends! I'm so excited to be sharing two layouts with you today using the NEW Say Cheese III collection! I love scrapping pictures of my favorite Mouse, and the Say Cheese collections are perfect for all your park pictures. I used two of my favorite photos from our last trip in these layouts!
 

My first page was inspired by the magical castle! I used the Simple Stories Castle cut file from the Silhouette Store to cut a castle shape from black cardstock. I took the negative and traced it onto a scratch piece of paper. Next, I punched out lots of tiny squares from all the patterns and lined them up along the traced shape.

One I had the castle shape filled in, a glued the negative over the top. I added my photo and a few embellishments, trying to keep the focus on the castle.  I added brads to the castle towers, and then used enamel dots and stickers around the castle to look like fireworks. I finished the page with a stitched washi border!
 

For my second layout, I wanted to use famous quote Walt Disney said on opening day of his Park.
 

I cut the quote out using my Silhouette, and backed each letter with a different pattern paper. Next, I traced each letter with a black pen to help it stand out more. I centered the castle die cut from the Bits & Pieces above the quote, and added two small photos on either side.
 

I added a few small embellishments around the photos, but tried to keep the quote front and center. My favorite part of this collection are all the great stickers with quotes! I managed to squeeze three on my page with a giant quote title. You can never have too many!
 

 
I had so much fun creating these special pages, and I can't wait to use the Say Cheese III collection to scrap more magical photos. I hope you feel inspired to dig in to your park photos and get scrapping!

Hello friends! Today I'm excited to share two fun layouts with you using the Love & Adore collection! The colors and patterns are perfect for all your love-themed photos, but are also versatile enough to be used for a variety of themes. I love doing layouts about my husband, so this collection was just perfect for me!
 

 
My first layout was insired by the "With All My Heart" patterned paper. I love the awesome design, and wanted to make it extra special. I cut out the insides of the heart using a craft knife, then traced where each color would be using a scratch piece of paper. Next, I used the 6"x6" pad to find papers that coordinated with the brush strokes, and punched out a million tiny little hearts using a heart confetti punch, I glued down the hearts to the scrap paper, keeping each color within the lines I designated when I traced it earlier.  Gluing down the hearts took a bit of time, but the end result is lovely! It's a great movie-watching activity.
 
 
Once I had the hearts glued down, I added my photo and embellishments. I wanted to cover as little of the punch hearts as possible, so I kept the embellishing simple by primarily using the chipboard.
 
 
I love the way it turned out!

My next layout was inspired by the "2x12, 4x12 & 6x12 Elements" patterned paper. The "Loved you yesterday..." quote is one of my favorites and I couldn't wait to use it on a layout!
 
 
I began by placing the quote to the right side of the page, leaving an edge of white cardstock. I added a scalloped strip of paper underneath, and then stitched it all down. I chose my photo, and added layers of patterned paper behind it, as well as a doily. I glued that down, and added chipboard hearts and the "XO". I wanted to repeat the look of the stained glass heart, so I cut out the same design from the 6"x6" paper pad and slid it behind my photo. 
 
 
Next, I added some splatters of black ink. I grabbed the phrase stickers from the 4"x6" sticker pack and added them going down the edge of my page. I couldn't choose just one, so I used nearly the whole sheet!
 
 
Those are my two layouts using Love & Adore! I had a blast creating with this collection, and I know you will too. Thanks for joining me today!
