Reasons to smile…

Happy Friday!!!

This weekend, we’re purging our household furniture to make way for NEW stuff! I’m especially excited because our furniture has seen its fair share of life experience 😉

This card describes my frame of mind to a T! I cannot wait to make our trip across the country to visit family and friends!

Music Doodles Stickerz: Only $2!!!!

For my layout, I used the Music Doodles Stickerz from E.A.D. Designs! To alter them, I used my Copic Markers. Now, they look like photo overlays! Pretty cool, huh?

SPEAKING OF SALES, here’s the list:

  1. 50% off Torendi Rub-ons
  2. At Torendi, $5 off any order $30 or over using code: EADLOVE
  3. 25% off all E.A.D. Designs Orders with code: torendi

I used Walnut Spray Mist to create the paint effect while using scratch paper to mask off my photos. The photos were give a sanded/antiqued look by applying rubbing alcohol with a paper towel directly to the photos.

I used my Pazzles Inspiration Pen Tool to do the journaling :)

This is one of the first photo-centric layouts I’ve designed and I love that the photos take center stage! I also loved that I fit so many snapshots on a single, 12×24, layout :)

Take-out for Coffee Lovers

For Coffee Lovers

I love making my own little favor boxes! When the Bread and Milk Stamps, from Torendi arrived at my home, I KNEW I had to make a little gift box!

I used my Pazzles Inspiration Cutter to cut and score the chinese take-out box and to cut out the chipboard frame. I lightly sanded the edges of the frame and added a coat of picket fence distress paints for a crackled/antiqued effect! Then, I just decorated the inside of the frame with the stamped image, some washi tapes, stickles, and a pearl! The little handle has some washi tape too!
