Using the Creative Imaginations Loolah line this month was the most fun I've had using a paper line in a long time. Everything just came together so nicely, and I love the colors and the patterns. The embellishments added a perfect touch.
My second layout has one of my favorite things on it- stitching, and I love the way the red stands out on it. I added the stitched flower to it.
This next one I made for a book of pictures with my husband and the grandchildren as a gift for him. They are all pictures from time at our lodge, so the nature patterns on this work just perfect.
The cute flowers are a perfect way to make a fast card, and the brad flowers are great with all the layers on them and the epoxy ones are just really cute.
I really loved this line - thanks ACOT for the opportunity to use and great with this line of paper!

This year, my kids couldn't wait for Father's Day! They both made beautiful handmade gifts, cards, and even gift bags at school this year. We hid their goodies away for a least a week before and of course my 5 year old asked every day if he could give them to daddy! It is no surprise that I absolutely LOVE when my kids make homemade crafts. No matter how hard I try, those treasures don't seem to last very long even though we try to save all of them. I always take photos so we'll be able to remember their projects throughout the years.
In this layout, I used two 4"x6" photos stacked on the right side of the layout and two 2.75"x4" photos angled on the left side of the layout. I used the MVP Paper as the base of the layout and then used the Big Guy Paper, Top Pop Paper, LFLF Strips Paper, and LFLS Cards Paper to cut up additional embellishments for the layout.
This is a layout using one of my favorite photos of my hubby taken a couple years ago. Although the bike belongs to a good friend and isn't ours, I still loved watching my husband ride!
The Rock Star paper is definitely my favorite out of the Like Father LIke Son paper line! I had fun adding more embellishment to the existing design in the paper. I started embellishing using Platinum stickles throughout the stars and let that dry overnight. Next, I added a strip of paper from the LFLF Strips Paper across the center of the layout. I created a mat behind the 4"x6" photo using the Big Guy Paper. I added the Rock Star title from the LFLS Cards paper and added some stickers from the Pink Paislee Starlight Sticker sheet. The swirl below Rock Star is from the Artisan Swirls by Pink Paislee. To finish off the layout, I pulled a few older embellishments from my stash: Cherry Arte Poolside and Moroccan chipboard and Creative Imaginations Gala Icon Epoxy Stickers.
When I first saw the Like Father Like Son paper line, I fell in love with the quote, " A Father is his daughters first love and his sons first hero". Since I have both a boy and a girl, this quote was perfect for me to use on a layout. On Father's Day, we ended our morning with a photo of the three of them together which is what I used for this layout!
For the base of the layout, I used the Champion Paper and then cut up the Top Pop Paper to create a border of circles around the photo and quote. The additional embellishments were cut from the LFLS Cards Paper and stickers were used from the Like Father Like Son Element Sticker sheet. I used dark brown ink on all of the embellishments and stickers to help them stand out from the busy background.
I created two cards using some left over scraps of patterned paper, element stickers, scallop edge punch, and pearls.
Products Used In This Reveal:
Are your punches getting dull and leaving behind soft and fuzzy edges? Don’t get rid of your punch, just follow these easy steps and your punch will be as good as new!
What you will need: foil and wax paper. Tear off a piece of the foil and fold it a couple times. Make sure to press it down so it fits into the punch. If it’s too thick, just fold it over once.
Place the foil into the punch, for example this Martha Stewart umbrella punch, and punch it a couple of times. This will sharpen your punch so it works like new!
After that, take a piece of the wax paper and do the same. Fold it a couple times and place it in the punch (making sure the waxy side is on the outside). Punch it through a few times. This will lubricate the punch so that nothing will stick to it when you're using it!
Now you’re all set to use your sharpened punches for whatever scrapbooking or craft ideas you have!
