Don't Stop Believing!

Hello and happy hump day!
I am sharing a layout I created for Sketches In Thyme today. I used Fancy Pants Dream Big along with Creative Embellishment's Arrow Heart Frame.

I inked the chipboard frame and added it under my photos. I placed a few diecuts on top:

I added a few more diecuts and punched a few scalloped circles and added them to the upper right of the photo:

On the bottom, I created a cluster using more punched scalloped circles and diecuts:

Here I added more diecuts and scallop circles:

Here is the sketch:

I love how this page turned out! I also love this new Fancy Pants collection!
Enjoy your day!

Looking For A New Cleaner?

Hey there friends!
I am here today to share an easy way to remove stickers off of an object.
We recently replaced our back door after installing it, I needed to remove those stickers they add to them. Yeah, I didn't get a picture of the actual stickers, but did get some after I tried peeling the stickers off. Here is the window on the door:

This is the door:

Finally, frustrated, I grabbed The Best Cleaner Ever:

and sprayed both areas:

I let it sit for about 5 minutes and used some paper towel to remove the sticker. This was the result after on the door:

and the window:

So next time you have something sticky to remove, try The Best Cleaner Ever.

Sharp Dressed Man

Hey there!
There is a new sketch up at Stuck?! Sketches today. I hope you will play along!
I used the July Hip Kit Club kit and came up with this fun page of Austin and I:

I added some white Gesso to some of my background and then added watercolor. I fussy cut all the flowers from one of the papers in the kit. Then I added embellies around my photos:

I added some tissue paper behind my photos to soften the look: 

Here is Laura's fabulous sketch:

I also added some watercolor, diecuts and flair from the collection:

Hey there Scrappy Friends!
Have you scrapped your wedding photos yet?
I have only scrapped a few so far.
I am here today to share a layout I created for my wedding album. Of course, I used the Best Glue Ever, because it really is the best glue ever!
I used the January Hip Kit Club kit for this page:

I added some watercolor to my background and then added a few layers behind my photo, including a frame. I also added lots of ephemera:

I love adding dimension to my pages by adding some foam behind my embellishments. The Best Glue Ever is perfect for adhering the foam to my layout:

I also, love using the Best Glue Ever to adhere wood veneer to my layouts. The No-Clog Writing Cap is perfect to get glue in all those small spaces. And, a little bit of the Best Glue Ever goes a long way!

Here is one more close up of my layout:

Of course, the Best Glue Ever works really well on paper too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
