4 Layouts In 4 Days AND Some Exciting News!!!

Hey yall! Happy Tuesday! I hope all of you had a wonderful long weekend! My weekend was spent with some of my family that came up for a visit. We all had such a wonderful time and I hated to see them go this morning. June is here! Can you believe it?!! I mean, really?! The summer is already flying by!!! But with a new month means that I have some new layouts to share with you using the kit from Scrapbook Circle!!! Sadly, this is my last month to have the opportunity to work with the outstanding kits from SBC. My DT term is up, but I have to say how much I have enjoyed getting to know everyone over at SBC and working with them! It has truly been a pleasure!!!! I am so thankful for such a great opportunity!!!! I have created 4 new layouts using the scrumptious June kit and will be sharing those one at a time over the next 4 days, so if ya can, be sure to check back to see. Also, if you want to see more inspiration using this kit, check out the Idea Gallery!!!! As always, my fellow designers have knocked it out of the park!!!
Now, on to my first layout....'Splish Splash.' This layout features one of the cutest little gals I know...Olivia Paige, enjoying a day at the pool. She is the daughter of my BFF from high school, Tara. Tara allows me to scrap her and I am just so grateful because her pages are always so much fun to do!!!! I started out with a 12x12 base of Pink Paislee. I just love the distressed feel this sheet of blue paper has to it. Then, I took some double sided patterned paper from October Afternoon and cut it out in a scalloped circle ring using my Cricut Expresson and Sure Cuts A Lot die cutting software. If you are interested in this svg, shoot me an email at aymee810@yahoo.com and I'll be glad to send it to ya. Next, I took this scalloped ring and broke it into 2 pieces for the top and bottom of my layout.
Of course, I used all of my favorite Helmar Adhesives on this layout. I used the Quick Fix Adhesive Runner for the majority of the layout. To adhere my ribbon technique, I turned to my favorite in the line of Helmar Adhesives, Helmar 450 Quick Dry. If you haven't heard already, this stuff is the bee's knee's!!!! It is so amazing! It will adhere anything and dries quickly....love that! I also used Helmar Zap Dots to pop up my journaling die cut and Helmar Liquid Scrapdots to pop up and adhere my flowers. The alphabet is from American Crafts and I used some Stickles to bling those up. The rhinestones are from Queen & Co.
These flowers were basic white paper flowers from Michaels that I jazzed up a tad. I began by spritzing them with some gold Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap. I just love the shimmer this added. For the centers, I made my own brads using the Imaginisce I-Top tool and leftover October Afternoon paper. The journaling die cut is from Elle's Studio.
To show a bit of the dimension....

I hope you have enjoyed this layout! It was so fun to sit down and create! I had not scrapped a layout in days and it was nice to get back to my favorite form of scrapbooking! Mom and I scrapped for over 10 hours yesterday while Tyler, Caressa, Carter, and Brandon went to NYC for a Yankee's game. It was so nice to sit and scrap with my bff!!!

ALSO, I am so excited to share my very first Scrapstreet article!!! It is up today! My first article is 4 pages long and here is the direct link to that. Be sure to check out the rest of the issue too! It is filled with so much awesome inspiration! Here is the link to the cover. Simply scroll down a tad and click on 'June 2010' and you can view everything from there. I hope you will enjoy the issue as much as I did! I sat reading the whole thing, cover to cover, for over an hour this morning! So fun!

As always, thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog! I hope you all have a fabulous day and Happy Scrappin'!

Pin It!
