It also had some fun circle accents so I cut lots of great circles using my Just Imagine Kreaxions circle cutter.

Using Creative Embellishments chipboards I clustered my title over the main big circle.

I added more circles and add some really cute Momenta Wonderland layered puffy bug stickers.

Some stickers flowers. leaf and another cute bug sticker filled this cute cluster.

i also used a circle panel of chipboards from Creative Embellishments to add more circle elements.

The Rubber Buggy 'Smile' using Blue Fern Studios Garden Life

Hi today I am sharing a photo of the girls all dressed up... what a great friendship they have. It needed a fun bright page to help with the dark photo on this one. Lots of great products from The Rubber Buggy for this one.... using Blue Fern Studios Garden Life Collection and 49 & Market accents.

Supply List:
Paper: Blue Fern Studios Garden Life - Flower Bed, In Bloom
Accents: 49 and Market Butterfly Harvest
Pen: Nuvo Aqua Flow water colour pen
Chipboards: Creative Embellishments happy words, flourish set 15, hot hexagon panel
Other: mesh beads, sew easy ink roller, Cardstock

In the close ups I give you a better and closer detail view of the layers and accents. Chipboards and accents from 49 & Market Butterfly Harvest are the main accents to this page.

I added some bead strips and used the sew easy ink roller for corner edging.

What a great cluster combo... title  and flourish Nuvo Aqua flow water colored and 49 and Market accent.

I matted the photo which was dark with white and a colour to help make it pop. Not every photo you take is perfect but when it's the only one you have you use it.

The central core of this page is the photo and it's decorated around with amazing coloured accents. It's beautiful.

I messed up the outer ink roller border so just added more to make it work.

Super cute flower and kritter accents.

Sunny bright title 'smile' with an added star chipboard.

Finished it off with a washi tape corner.

July Stuck Sketches and my Paper House products

Hi everyone... sure hope your having a great weekend. I know I am ... I have time to craft this weekend.... and I have a great Stuck sketch challenge today to share using my Paper House Products.
This actually is our wedding photo from 1970 and we will be celebrating our 47th Anniversary in August this year.

Supply List:
Paper: Paper House Noir ColorWays
Accents: Paper House Noir Accent Pack
Other: cardstock, liquid pearls, ribbon, Prima Flowers, twine, washi tape

I started this page by using the layers of the sketch to start... and pulled lots of accents from the pack.

I used these Prima flowers... and on the side is some gold washi tape/

In the close ups you can view some of the layers. I like to go light, dark ad then some gold black. It gives it texture and depth when you change it up.

I used a fun cluster of accents in this section. I tied off the double keys with bow tied twine.

Small washi tape corner with some paper and star accent. When this page was done I didn't like the white plain background so I used a plastic glove and used some silver and gold liquid pearls for a soft subtle glitter.

This last close up shows the use of more journal tags/cards and accents from the Collection.
