Ahhh I await the days of hot summer sun, a nice cool pool, Popsicle and the cool AC. Ya’ll I am so gitty over this Crate Paper Oasis Collection!! It has me pulling out all my summer photos from last year! I think its all the retro bathing suits, flamingos, cactus and so much more. So I went into my Silhouette Studio Library and looked around for something to go with one of the awesome papers from the Crate Paper Oasis Line.

So here’s what I came up with!!

I went with this really cool outline font from the silhouette studio. This paper from the CP Oasis line reminded me so much of a beach towel or the lines in the pool, it was so inspiring to me. I loved the different colors and really wanted to continue that on my layout. So I thought by backing it up on my cut file would be a good choice to really appreciate the beauty of this paper.

See those really cool retro bathing suits??!!! I love them! I love using ephemera on all my layouts but I really love this piece that says hello sunshine, kind of went hand and hand with my title! I also did some mixed media in the background. I used the shimmerz well blue me down mist spray, such a good blue color!

Well here it is! I love how I got to use two photos and this huge title at the same time. Sometimes having all of this on one layout came be to much at times but it really worked out and I love it! as always I have a Process Video below!



I am back with another layout using my Hip Kit Club April 2017 Kit. Lately I have been totally feelin the desert vibes. I have been loving the cactus, palm trees, palm leaves and Crate Paper nailed it with their new Oasis line! So I went on Pinterest to get inspired. Most Oasis pictures I cam across where pinks, greens, and aqua colors.

This layout was definitely inspired by some photos from pinterest. So let’s take a closer look at it!

I used those palm leaves from the Crate Paper Ephemera pack and the cute gold foiled flamingo. My background paper is from the Maggie Holmes new collection called Chasing Dreams. I felt like that pink distressed looked really made the greens pop.

For my title I used the puffy words from the CP Oasis line as well. A Beautiful Five Years is exactly what its been for us. This little beauty is fierce, beautiful and smart and so funny!
