Happy Heart Layout

I hope you have enjoyed all of the Boutique creations I have shown you throughout the month.  As we near the end of September, I wanted to make sure that I posted one of my most favorite layouts I made using our Boutique products.  This is one that truly makes my heart happy.


This fall, we were blessed to see our son marry a wonderful woman who God designed perfectly for him.  It made my heart so happy to see his joy and I wanted to be able to scrapbook all that I felt.



Our Boutique papers not only matched their wedding colors, but they made the perfect backdrop for these engagement photos. I was able to use the Boutique Cardmaking Stamp Set along with our Sugarplum Ink to create the perfect title which I cut out using our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts.



I added some Sugarplum Glitter paper, a few Boutique Complements, some adorable Sugarplum Gems, and the layout was complete. This is the one of the many layouts I was able to showcase at Convention this year, and I plan on completing a second page once I finished deciding which photos I want to use. (There are so many to choose from.)

Make sure to visit my Facebook, Instagram or VIP Group to see even more projects I created using Boutique. I hope you have been inspired this month. Make sure to snag a few of those Boutique products on my website and, please, send me a photo or two of what you have made. I can’t wait to see what you create with Boutique.


Sweet Treats Shaker Card

I am loving our new Shaker Card products so much that I just had to create a card for this week’s heARTfully stamping challenge.  I know that it is not winter yet, nor will is be coming anytime soon where I live, but I couldn’t resist using our Just Treats stamp of the month to create an adorable winter card.


If you have had a chance to look at the new Holiday Expressions, then you probably haven’t seen all of the new Shaker Card products available, OR maybe you saw them and just had no idea what they were.  Today, I am going to give you a quick run down of the new products we carry, along with a few tips that will help you when you make your next shaker card.

Shaker Window Foam & Acetate – How many times have you attempted to make a card only to get frustrated cutting and gluing the acetate to foam tape? Too many for me to count. That is why I ♥LOVE♥ this product.  One quick tip – it has a clear film on one side of the acetate that needs peeled off before adhering it to the foam tape.


Shaker Thin Cuts – These are AWESOME! They are designed to cut frames out to fit the Foam & Acetate perfectly plus you can use them to create your own confetti. HOW COOL IS THAT! Since my shaker was behind the Tag I cut, I didn’t need to use these this time.


Loose Sequins – These come in a bag of Silver Shapes or a bag of Gold Shapes which match just about any project you are working on.  Quick Tip: Tap your Anti-Static Pouch over the Sequins before sealing them up. The powder won’t show and it will prevent them from clinging to the acetate.


So are you ready to try out our new Shaker Card products?! I know you will be tickled how simple and fun they are to use. I can’t wait to see the shaker cards you create!


Fall Moments

It is finally starting to look like Fall around here! I just returned from my annual Fall Crafting Retreat that I host each year, and noticed and many of the leaves are starting to turn, the weather is cooling, and I am ready for some pumpkin bread.  To get you in the “mood” for fall,  I showing you one of pages I created for this year’s Extravaganza using a few of our amazing new products from the Holiday Expressions.


The first thing you might notice is that gorgeous paper pattern.  Did you know that the Saffron paper comes from our Boutique collection?



Isn’t it just beautiful? I also chose to use Boutique Complements to add a few additional details to the layout. I just love that saying “Live for moments you can’t put into words”. This truly describes how we were feeling as we peered at the spectacular fall shades of trees and bushes against the cool waters of the Rocky Mountains.



As you can see I used those little “Washi” sticker strips and the Boutique Cardmaking Stamp Set to add a few more details onto the layout.



Don’t you just love those little sticker strips? I have used them for quite a few accents on my cards and layouts, along with our new Thin Cuts. We have TWO new sets for you this season that you will ♥LOVE♥.



I am adoring all the new TAGS we have available for you in the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts Bundle. On my layout, I chose to cut one in half and use it as an accent. The stitching on the Circle matched perfectly with the stitching that I created with the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts Bundle on other parts of the layout.

You can view all of these new products along with many others on my website. When you place an order during the month of September, you will receive a FREE Holiday Expressions with your order. It’s defiantly something you want to get your hands on – just keep some tissue near by to catch all the drool. 😉 I can’t wait to see what you create with all these amazing new products!
