I am making more Travel Notebooks using the Hadeda Garden collection and the new butterfly Cute Cuts we have released over at Ivytree Studio.

Just love these butterflies. They make any project so pretty.

Be a brave girl double layout

Hi there lovelies,

The Finesse collection just keeps on giving. I loved making this colourful and decorative layout. I think what I love the most when scrapbooking is just going with the flow. It doesn't have to be perfect or perfectly straight all the time. It doesn't have to impress but to me it does have to be arty and colourful and fun. 

Selecting elements from this variety collection is so easy. There is a lot to choose from. 

I only used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the silhouette lady. I used a flower punch to punch all the flowers. I shaped them and glued them with a hot glue gun. I designed the large paper flower by hand and cut it by hand. I love adding original elements like that to my projects. I also added some store bought flowers I had in my stash. 

I created these 3D dimensional honeycomb elements using the cuts from the collection, adding them to sturdy white cardstock for the base and foam squares between the sandwich and adhered it to the layout using craft glue.

Document Life single layout

Hi there lovelies,

Sharing another layout using the Finesse Collection.

In this layout, I used a lot of the border cuts available in the Simply Pretty collection colour matched to the Finesse Collection. I also used chipboard from this collection's kit. 

I loved creating the simple paper flowers. I cut basic flowers out of white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and layered them. Some I kept white and others I sprayed the centres with a purple spray. I used my glue gun to drop enough glue in the centres until it formed a little dome. I then coloured it with Vegas Gold All purpose ink and some with blue metallic paint (Dala brand). I created some texture in some of the centres using silicone beads.
