New Toy + Layout Share

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Today is a very hot day here in Jacksonville, FL and I'm just chilling at home spending time with my family but also crafting. This week I got a new Silhouette Portrait Machine, so I've been burning with excitement (LOL!). I know the Portrait is a bit smaller than the Cameo Silhouette, but I'm not planning to use it for background cuts on my 12 x 12 pages, I wanted it more for cutting embellishments, project life stuff and for basic die cuts. Also the portrait is more portable and cheaper than the Cameo, so this one is perfect one for me. 

Today I created this layout based on a Kristine Davidson sketch. My plan was to used the American Crafts Lucky Charm Collection for this page and this sketch was perfect to emphasize the triangle shape of the pattern papers from this collection. I pulled out papers with teal, red, Kraft and yellow tones so my beach theme photos stand out from the background.

Also, made an interactive booklet to add more photos to this page and here is the final result:

I really followed the sketch very closed but I made a couple of changes too.

Here is a closer look to the title and a Flair Badge from At The Beach Set, Available in the store.

Instead of use just one picture, I made a small book and added two 4 x 6 collage pictures.

That is for my layout this weekend but I will be posting more during this week. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Sunday!

Hello, Hello!

Today I have a quick layout to share. I was really inspired by this cool colorpalette from Design Seeds. I loved the mint, charcoal grey (or black), yellow, taupe and muted grey and wanted to incorporate them on my layout because the photos have a very dark background and this colors helped them to standout in my page. 

Here is the color palette:

And here is my layout:

And now, I hope you can create some projects using this color scheme and don't forget to share them in our store gallery. 
Thanks for stopping by!
