Beach Layout Made with Cricut Design Space

Hope everyone has had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend!

A few days ago, I took some time to cut and complete a Beach layout in Cricut Design Space. 





Another artist in a file sharing group I am in, created the layout. 
I went in and altered it slightly to fit the look I was going for. 
So today I had the time to add my photos. 
These are from Panama City Beach in Florida, from a couple years ago. 



You will notice on the layout I do not have the date.
 I have to go back and find the date on another layout and add it. 
This layout is one of 6 layouts from that one day at the beach. 
I added journaling on the first layout in the set, which is why there is not journaling on this one. 


I did however add a Pocket Plus Memory Protectors to this one, because I had a few extra photos, I wanted to add, but didn't have the space on the two pages. 



I use Pocket Plus Memory Protectors often in my scrapbooks. 


Next week, I will have a tutorial on how to create shaker pockets in your albums using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool. 
I have found sequins and creating pockets, is my new love.

Transportation Challenge Over at Pile It On!


Today's card is a square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.
The card base is Kraft paper by Close to my Heart.

The layers are retired diagonal stripes, Glacier cardstock, Toffee cardstock, and Almond cardstock,  all from Close to my Heart.


The stack of suitcases digital stamp "Luggage" is from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.
Since the theme is Transportation and/or Vacation, the luggage was perfect.

The sentiment is a sneak peek of an up and coming Stamp of the Month from Close to my Heart.
You will see several cards from me over the next few weeks using this one.



I distressed the edges of the paper and cardstock with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.


I also entered my card into the following challenges:

Transportation Challenge Over At Pile It On!


Lately things have been extremely busy, so I haven't had time to craft much. 
I finally had some free time and was able to put together a quick layout for a few of my sons photos.
I made a 12 x 12 single page layout, so showcase two photos.


The theme is transportation,  so the construction trucks are perfect.  

I used an older paper kit that included sticker, photo mats and the back ground paper from another scrapbooking company. 
The cardstock background is Saffron from Close to my Heart.

I distressed the edges of the paper and cardstock with a retired shade of brown from Close to my Heart called Nutmeg.


I also entered my layout into the following challenges:

I hope you enjoyed my layout, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Coffee Time Card

This week, to showcase this adorable digital image for the Beverage Challenge from Bugaboo Designs, over at Pile It On! Challenge Blog,  I made this simple, yet cute card. 




The digital image is Coffee Time-Perfect Blend.

I colored the image in with my Watercolor Pencils from Close to my Heart.
The card base is Peach cardstock from Close to my Heart. 
The layers are Peach cardstock, Carolina cardstock, and some patterned paper from my stash.

The inside sentiment is also part of the digital image set.




For a little added dimension, I placed a few pink dots from the retired Documents Dots set from Close to my Heart randomly.

I also tried to rough up a few of the edges as well. 
Since I didn't use ink this time to distress, like I usually do. 

I entered my card into a few challenges as well:

Jo's Scrap Shack- Fun Day Friday Challenge #280 Anything Goes 
A Gem of  a Challenge- Week 8 Anything Goes 
Crafty Catz- #460 Anything Goes 
Cute Card Thursday- #580 Anything Goes
