Moving to Colorado has been quite a change for me. I am having a hard time adjusting to living in the high dessert, but the beauty that surrounds me seems to calm me. I love driving to the mountains seeing the land change. Since I live 60+ miles from a town large enough to have my crafting supplies I am challenging myself to use what I have and see what I can make. I am really starting to work with digital images and mixing it with the layered paper I love. Hope you will enjoy my blog and leave a comment. Thank you!

Brace Face

PPbN Designs Brace Face is one of the 2-page SVG Kit Club but will be available to everyone next month. I didn't put the borders on this one but still deciding on that one. I used vinyl for the braces because it was shiny. I used some glitter on the toothpaste. This went together so fast I might have time for another layout today.

Disney Treats

This layout is ready for some Disney treat pictures. The file I used was Disney Treats which will be out in April. (unless you have a 2 page svg file membership)

Peas in a Pod

Peas in a Pod

My son and Grandson look so much alike that we sometimes have to look at the back of a picture to decide which is which. Nathan now wears glasses to that helps. I used some paper I had around wanted it to look older not a baby layout.

File used:
Peas in a Pod 2 page layout kit.

New York Ciry

I set this up just a bit different than the file but I didn't glue anything down yet so I might change it. The pieces were super easy and so cute. Now I need to get to New York so I can use the layout. The file strip was in my stash but if you want the file I will look for one. Hope you enjoy.

Handy Boy Set Card

Tool Belt Card

Using a file I found in the Silhouette store for a card and adding my own images from ppbn designs I created a cute card. Still deciding if it is going to be a birthday card or a Father's Day card. These tools are just too cute. I made sure when I glued the pockets on the card that I left the top open to insert my pieces.

List of files used:

 SVG Attic JGW Blooming Card Kit or Silhouette on line go to Snapdragon Snippets Design ID#46209 7/29/2013 or type in Garden Apron.
Handy Boy Set from ppbndesigns.com
This is the one from the Silhouette store

Princess and the Frog Birthday set

Thought I would post something other than a layout since I always do layouts. I found these cute plates, napkins, french fry box, silverware and place mats at Wal-Mart for one dollar per package. Too cute not to try something with them.The flower arrangement is a few files, the Prince and Princess are a Members Club layout which will be out next month for everyone, so you can check it out at ppbndesigns.com, the roses and the daisies are from the silhouette studio but can be found other places, the little bug is from  Kadoodlebugdesigns.com Kids Catching Fireflies the Birthday sign is Happy Birthday title from ppbndesigns.com and the frogs are again Members files which which can be found at ppbndesigns.com. The cupcake toppers is the png. file printed and then cut. I did mirror the image and sandwiched the toothpick between the layers.

If you would like to find out how I put the flowers together leave me a comment and I will make a video.

The Princess and the Frog

The new update for the Explore to 2.0 makes it so we do not have to resize ppbndesigns.com's scrapbook page layouts. This is fantastic news for me since I do a layout a day at least. This is The Princess and the Frog from the 2-page svg  kit club. The paper for the background and borders is graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar Collection one of my favorite papers.

Beauty and the Beast

This layout is so sweet, the black is a bugger to cut but the effect is totally worth it. I changed up the colors from the file and placed my mats differently but all the rest is totally Nikkis' file Beauty and the Beast from her 2-page scrapbook svg club. The files will be open to everyone next month. Hope you enjoy this layout as much as I did making it.

Resizing the PPBN scrapbook page layouts in Design Space.
