Boys Can have BFF's Too-Layout

Here is the Layout I did for the Heartfelt Design Team this time.  Its all about boys and their BFF's.

I used Best Creations Inc paper, the Robot line. I love the bright colors and all the fun glitter.  I also loved the paper with all the tags.  It made journaling so easy! 
Here is a close up of both pages.

 I cut out some of the gears and layered them with foam pop dots  to make my own embellishments.


To finish the layout, I used Glossy Accents and traced some of the lines and gears; I then added Crystal Fine glitter.  It added the finish touch I needed.

After working on so many "girly' pages, this was a lot of fun to do. 
Lets see some of your favorite Boy Layouts.

Summer Layout Class

We just got back from Youth Conference and a short weekend  get away with the Family.  Today D5 started back to school.  I can not believe how fast the summer is going. 

If you are like me, you have probably taken oodles of photos this summer but haven't stopped to do much with them.

I am teaching a class Thursday July 28, at Heartfelt Creations all about Summer Layouts.  I will show you how to make four 12x12 pages and a card.  You will also receive the sketches to use over and over again.These pages will help you to celebrate anything summer! You will  also learn some new techniques using glitter and glossy accents and an easy way to make your own titles on the computer.

I hope you will join us.  There are still a few spaces left and you can sign up on line, just click here.

July has kept me busy.  I have some layouts and projects for the Design Team and a new block class next week.  I also have been working on new kits and hope to have them up on the blog the end of this week.  
 I think you are really going to like them so be sure to check back soon.

One more big announcement.  I am teaching classes for Heartland Paper again.  I am so excited to be working with the great staff at the Bountiful store.  I have two up coming classes in September so be sure to watch for those.

Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine!

Free Paper and another coupon

Have you tried out the My Memories Suite yet?  Are you looking for some Free Digital kits? I have two to share with you today.

Summer Bloom Papers are Free this weekend! Click here to download. (you do have to set up an account but it is free to do so)

Need another kit, here is a coupon for $10 off any purchase.  Most of their kits are around 3.99 to 6.99, that means you can get one, two or even three kits.  Just enter code UBTENMM71 before you check out.

The great thing about My Memories digital kits are they work with either the My Memories Suite or Photoshop if you already have that.

Ordinary Day- Digital Layout

So remember that great program, My Memories, I told you about?  Well I decided to try my hand at their weekly challenge on their blog.

The Challenge was to make a layout using picture from an ordinary day. These photos were taken by D1 of her and I just hanging out one day last year. The photos were not the best but I love them anyway.  When I put this layout together I asked for her help in picking the embellishment and flowers. Its probably not the fanciest layout I have ever done, but it was a lot of fun.
