Making a scene

Hi! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July, especially if you live in the US. I love the time spent with family and friends, so it's something I look forward to.

My layout today was years in the making! I was trying to solve the problem of a page that I had no pictures for and then the inspiration hit that I could follow the lead of my DT members and create a scene to share some of the sights I didn't capture with my camera!

I used:

Snowy Scene Cutting Files

to create rolling foothills

College Road Trip Cutting Files

College Road Trip Cutting Files
to recreate the road we were driving on

Oh, Snap! Title Cutting Files

This was the perfect title and a great spark of inspiration for my page

Farm Critters Cutting Files

I used the chicken and the horse - I just liked how they worked with my page.

Fall Festival Cutting Files

for the bit of fence I used

Flower Assortment Cutting Files

for the bits of grass here and there.

And here's how it all came together:

I love how the chicken came out. I looked for chickens that were colorful on Google and used colors from other parts of this album.

This horse is adorable and so much fun to pop the different parts up with foam adhesive to add some dimension!

I'm so happy to now have a final page for this album!
So, if you ever need to fill in where you don't have a picture - just keep the Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons shop in mind! The possibilities are endless!

Happy crafting!

Guest Designer ~ Georgiana Carson, New Files, and a FREEBIE

TGIF, everyone! I'm so excited that we have an amazing Guest Designer this week. It's been quite a while since we've had one. Georgiana Carson from Carson's Creations made a fun patriotic tag and an adorable card for us this week.

Georgiana used the Patriotic Balloon and Made with Love Tag Cutting Files to create this festive tag for this treat. I love that pretty bow she added!

And oh, oh, oh! How adorable is this little BIRD day card? Georgiana used the Flamingos in Love, Photo Frames 1, and Stitched Shapes Cutting Files.  I love the pretty pastel colors!

Okay, now how about some new files? I have some cute and some useful files for you this week. Here's what's new in the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Store:

I also want to invite you to join us for our 80's Challenge that is going on now. We'd love you to link up your 80's themed project that you create using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. You can find out all of the details here:

You are Elephant-astic!

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. I hope everyone is doing well. 

For my project today I used PPPR "Shadow Box Card 1" cutting file along with PPPR "Safari Love" cutting file for the elephant. I cut the top layer of the box card two times, one in card stock and the other in printed paper because my printed paper was very thin. I used Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" Distress Inkon the card box and Memento London Fog Ink on the elephant. The sentiment is from  Pink By Design "Jungle Fever" Stamp Set. I also added some yellow stickles to the bow.

 I did a little pocket page in the inside.

 I glued the top layer of the elephant to the top of the box card first.
Then turned it around and glued the base of the elephant to the back of the card box.

What I used:
Pink By Design "Jungle Fever" Stamp Set
Memento London Fog Ink
Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink
Ranger Archival Ink
Yellow Stickles
 By the way there's still little time left to come and play along with us in our 
 new challenge going on till July 4th. For more info please click HERE

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a totally awesome weekend!

Teacher Gift

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is Michelle from Purple Monkey Moments, and I am excited to share the project I created for today.  My kids just finished school yesterday - YES I said YESTERDAY...  I wanted to make a quick project for my daughter's teacher.  Here is what I came up with:

This was the fastest teacher gift I have ever made!!  AND it's awesome!!  I used the  Fancy Pillow Box 2 Cutting File.  It perfectly fit 20 beautiful pencils, and it has a fun label that I used to stamp some cute sentiments.  I think I make this every school year as a First Day of School gift for teachers.  Is there a better way to start the year than with new pencils?

You can see all the details of my project HERE.  I hope you are all enjoying some beautiful summer weather!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for more fabulous projects.
