Happy weekend Friends! I shared some Easter decoration ideas on the American Crafts blog this week. Decorating a small spot at my house is always fun!

All I needed for this decoration was the new Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection. This collection has lovely, fresh colors and cute icons, just perfect for a spring themed decoration.

To be honest, I didn’t have a concrete plan when I started the decoration. I just wanted to create some pretty things that came to me. Treat boxes, pinwheels, flower banners, painted eggs, rosettes, clouds… everything that makes us happy at Easter.

I started the decoration with creating huge rosettes using patterned paper. I bent the papers in inches, adhere them using a hot glue gun, and punched big circles to decorate their center. When finished, I started to create a pretty flower banner. I used my trusty scissors to fussy cut flowers and leaves from the Funkadelic paper and machine stitched them align. I also created a ‘Hoppy Easter’ banner using alphabet stickers.

I can’t resist creating some pinwheels using colorful patterned paper. The glittered acrylic shapes are so pretty at the center of the pinwheels.

Have you spotted the lovely unicorn eggs? To create them, I painted some plastic eggs using Vicki Boutin acrylic paint and added glittered horn, flowers and rub-on transfer eyes from the Unicorn Easter Egg Kit. They are just adorable! I used tear-away stripes to create paper rings for bases.

The treat boxes are my children’s favorite, of course. I cut the boxes using my Silhouette Cameo and decorated them with ephemera pieces. I jazzed up the Easter basket with a pretty tear-away strip and a cute bow.

Here are some close-ups just because they are so pretty to look at J

I absolutely love how colorful is this Easter decoration and hope you’ll give this project a try!  Happy Easter crafting friends! Bea

Hi everyone! I'm here with a new layout I created featuring the Pink Paislee – Paige Evans – Turn the Page – Paper 2 beautiful floral patterned paper and lovely Turn the page puffy stickers included in the September 2017 kits.

I started my layout with choosing the Pink Paislee – Paper 7 as my background and drew a big heart with a pencil to the paper. I cross-stitched around the left side of the heart with pink thread.  I fussy cut a bunch of them and layered the flowers with some ephemera pieces to the right side of the heart. Love how the colors pop out from the grey background, just beautiful!

Arranged my photo to the center line, and added my journaling to a piece of ephemera. I also created a cluster to the left bottom of the page using Pink Paislee card stock stickers, puffy stickers, and a cute Amy Tangerine bow.

Dropped white acrylic paint around the layout to finish.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope we have inspired you today to get creative and make something pretty with your HKC kits!

Happy Saturday! Today I would like to share with you a cute mini album I created using a lot of beautiful cut files.
First, here is a video flip through and binding process of the album:

Measures: The pages' size is 4x4", I used a half-folded 8x4" papers. 

Cover size is 4,25 x 4,25, the spine is 1x4,25 inch. 

Cut files are usable in many ways in your mini albums! Let me show some examples through my mini album pages! 

Let's start with the cover! I cut a HEART cut file out of white cardstock and filled the heart shape with fussy cut flowers! 

On the second page, I used the FLOWERcut file to create a tiny extra page, it makes my album more interactive and grants a good place for hidden comments! 

On the left side, I added extra embellishing using the PIE CHART HEART cut file. I cut the inner pieces from patterned paper and stitched to the page in a rainbow form.

The CIRCLE FRAME  looks so pretty and highlights the themes of the photo!

Do you need more places for journaling? Cut some labels using the LABELS! Done and done!

On my next pages, I created a soft background using mist paints and the POINSETTIA BACKGROUND cut file. On the left side, I used the cut file as a mask and sprayed mist on it. Then I adhered the painted flowers to the opposite side. Just love how it turned out! 

I preserved some flowers from our garden and placed them between two acetate sheet. 

I placed some dried lavender into a vellum pocket, and machine stitched around. The whole mini album smells like a flowery land 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! XO Bea 

Happy SPRING everybody! 

I created this layout because it is spring, sunshine, and happiness, and I just can't get enough of these beautiful Oh My Heart flowers 🙂 ...and because I LOVE playing with my Silhouette Cameo <3

Here are some close-ups:

O hope you enjoy playing this cut file, happy crafting!

Happy Easter! It's time for painting eggs, making decorations and planting flowers in the garden I love it!! And its time to create Easter-themed layouts as well 🙂

I couldn't resist using my Bunny card cut file for a layout, and I had some perfect little busy bunny pictures of my daughter from the previous year.

Download my free bunny cut file here:

To start the layout I cut the bunny cut file with my Cameo and added some hand-stitched details. When finished I fussy cut some pretty Little by Little flowers by Shimelle,  and created a flower crown. I wanted to add a playful title, so I mixed and matched different letter stickers. Finished the page by painting dots and adding some butterflies.

Here is some closeups of the layout:

I also used this cut files for creating fun Easter cards:

Hello everybody! I hope the year starts well, its the end of the holidays, let's back to work, school, and scraproom 🙂 Last year I decided to create one free cut file in every month (to tell the truth I LOVE designing with my Silhouette, it gives the boundless freedom for my creativity), so I started this month with designing a new cut file. My favorite flower are peonies, and because of I think that one flower never enough, so I drew a whole bouquet of flowers 🙂 

I created this layout for my husband's birthday, he was born on Valentine's day so I decided to place the LOVE word into the middle of my cut file. I used Paige Evans' Take Me Away collection for my layout, I backed the flowers with a  gradient color patterned paper. It gives a beautiful realistic-looking appearance to the flowers. 

I hope you enjoy this cut file and you can use it for your Valentine's Day projects.

The bouquet cut file is downloadable with or without the 'LOVE' title from my cut file bundle.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!!

My subject for my post is multiple photos for today, and I was so happy to find these cute photos of me and my little girl.

You can download the XO cut file from my FREE cut file bundle, sign up here!

For creating the background I cut huge X-O letters from a Gather patterned paper with my Cameo, and machine stitched them around. 
I have to tell you, my favorite element from the September Kit is the Maggie Holmes Gather ephemera! Every little piece is just gorgeous, I need to use them again and again on my layouts. On this page, I layered them under my photos and added some stitching on the leaves.  

I completed my layout with my journaling and adhered it on a Dear Lizzy patterned paper.

 Here is the video tutorial for this week, check it out to see how I created my layout!

Wish you a lovely, crafty weekend! BEA

In spite of the winter, or perhaps even because of it, I absolutely adore this paperflower from Silhouette Studio. This layout brings me the feeling of spring and sunshine. 

 I used 4 different Silhouette Cameo 3D flower cut files from the Silhouette Store. I. I filled up the gaps with some Crate Paper chipboard and filet silk balls.

And it's so fun that I could make almost full of flowers from one patterned paper from Crate Paper! 🙂

Hey, everybody! I’m so excited to share my first layout with the brand-new She’s Magic collection by Dear Lizzy. This collection is inspired by women and made for women. I absolutely love the bold colors, the beautiful watercolor effects, the encouraging phrases, and a lot of floral patterned papers! This collection fits many themes and is perfect for documenting family life.

It all started with the Magic patterned paper. I love flowers and wanted them to be the main focus of my layout. So I took some time fussy cutting them. I fussy cut almost every flower from the paper, much more than I needed, but never mind, I could use them on my next project.

I chose the pink side of the Kind Heart patterned paper as my background and used the Silhouette Cameo sketch pen to draw a large circle on the paper. Then I used the circle as a guide for placing the fussy cut flowers.

I created almost a full flower wreath, but as I reached the bottom of the page, I decided to finish the wreath with a banner. To do that, I trimmed a bunch of labels from the 6x8 patterned papers, and also fussy cut tickets from the Round Trip patterned paper. I layered the labels and tickets using foam tape, to add more dimension.

I placed the photos to the right bottom of the wreath and started embellishing my page. The puffy stickers and the glittered enamel stickers are so adorable in this collection, so I arranged some pieces from them among the flowers.

I also added three pieces from the colorful buttons to the top of my banner. I love the balance these pieces added to the layout.

I dropped white and black paint around the wreath as a finishing touch.

I hope you like my first layout made with She’s Magic collection. If you haven’t had the chance to check out this new collection then make sure you join us on the blog this week! The Design Team will be bringing lots of inspiration your way!
