Hello Today

Today I'm sharing a layout I made using yellow and navy! 
This was a fun one to make... I've never used navy as a main color and I just love the way it looks paired with yellow!



Love love love the color combo! I also got to use my new navy blue Heidi Swapp mist and use a flair and some stickers I've had for a while now!
Have you made anything using navy blue lately? Leave me a link in the comments, I would love to see!
Thanks for stopping by!

Around Here...

Hi everyone!
Since I've been home bound and recovering from getting my tonsils out I went ahead and took the time to take a few photos around the house. Pretty happy with what I can find!
This first one is my favorite!

Hi everyone!
Today I wanted to share my layout I posted over on Scraptastic Club. Madeline and I have a stitching challenge for you, so when you're done here don't forget to head on over to the post to check out her layout and to upload your project for a chance to win!!
(I used the Let Me Go kits with bits from previous kits as well)

I feel like I haven't been stitching on my pages like I used to, so I was excited to get to it again!
Recently my friend Chelsea and I headed up to Sedona for a little hiking. I sort of stole the maps from her knowing I would love to add bits and pieces to the layouts from our trip. I went ahead and cut a piece if the map, stitched it down and got three piece of patterned paper to stitch down as well. I love the way the stitching make my page look complete!

I'll admit, I've been hoarding this you&me wood veneer piece from an older kit to use with the perfect photo... and I'm glad I found a home for it! Also, this month Scraptastic has introduced cork embellishments to the kits and oooh my!... isn't that globe adorable!? I also used both the Let Me Go and the Worth Wondering stamp set on this page... Love adding the little geotags in with my mist splatters!

I took a rub on from my stash to add to the whole travel/adventure theme and I ruffed up the edges of the papers where I stitched them down.

I added a die cut piece and a tab from the kit. I also left the tails of my stitching for an added messy look. Sometimes I like a clean look and cut them but I was feeling it for this page ;)

So there you have it! I challenge you to sew on your page, it can be with a machine or by hand. And don't forget to upload your project to the bottom of this blog post for a chance to win! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Here We Go (times two)

Hey everyone! I have two layouts to share with you today using the same title.
I figure it doesn't hurt to use a title more than once especially when the layouts are going into separate albums. 
Here is the first page!
I took a vellum envelope from my stash and filled it with some alphas that came in the March Scraptastic kit. I also threw in some sequins from an older kit and some punched circles. I then just started to layer from there using patterned papers, die cuts, tags, stamped images and puffy stickers.
Here are some close ups!

I went ahead and added some foam squares to let the layers pop off the envelope.

I just love all these bright colors on this background paper!

Here is layout number 2!
I kept this page really simple since the title gives such a huge impact. I just added some splatters to the background and a few embellishments here and there. 

I just love that little airplane puffy sticker!

I stamped the word journey onto a label from the kit, added another puffy sticker and a little enamel heart!
Since I took so many photos in the plane I have an insert page to share also...
I just added a block of patterned paper and two stickers to tie in with the 12x12 page. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
