Good morning! Today, I'll be sharing a layout about 3D Foam Heartsand the girl who owns my heart, Mackenzie. I love capturing my daughter in pictures, granted, it's a hard thing to do these days. Additionally, I love the dimension 3D Foam Hearts lend to this layout.

 The first thing I did, was gather up some bits and pieces to use on my layout. I wanted the 3D Foam hearts to be a feature in the layout, especially since they are so fun and stand out. (Of course, I had to use glitter!) Mackenzie is so beautiful, rarely she lets me capture it, as a result, this picture is the focus of the layout. I am, of course going to my layout, it's kind of my trademark. I always reach for the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to get the job done.

You'll see that I used additional foam for this, to create interest. I used 3D Foam Circles Black Mix to do this. I used the 3D Foam circles on Mackenzie's picture, there's a shadow lending dimension to the layout.

What would you do with your hearts? The possibilities are endless. The versatility of the foam shapes by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  finish off the projects perfectly. Look and see what I did below, I used gold glitter on mine! A good old fashioned plate does the trick for catching glitter. For some extra interest, I sprinkled some sequins here and there.

Adding the Hearts

When I began adding the hearts, I knew I wanted them to look "perfectly imperfect." You will be able to see in my placement of each heart, as you can see, each heart has a place. Again, if you look at the layout above, you will see how I accomplished this.

Final Touches

I added some words and spray mist to my layout. I am quirky in the sense that a layout doesn't feel finished unless I add mist to it. Here's a close up of some of the details and dimension that I keep mentioning.

#ForeverTogether with The Cut Shoppe ❤

Good morning! Shannon here, sharing a layout about the beautiful girls pictured below. They are amazing, hilarious and can often be found together.  I used a few files from The Cut Shoppe for this layout: The Rough Waters, The Friends Forever & Boho Chic files.

Good Luck Tags

Good morning, I'm sharing some good luck tags with you today. In my little corner of the world, its back to school...aaandd FOoTBaLl season! In fact, I am sharing some "good luck" tags for your favorite player with you.

Good Luck Tags With Gusto!

After you've chosen some great patterned papers,  you'll want to cut yourself tags, or grab some pre-made tags. The patterned papers were 6"X6" and had perfect sayings and accents. Adding cardstock as an extra layer, together with paper,  gives my tag a perfect pop created for each tag. (Use your EZ Runner Grand Refillable Dispenserfor this step.)

Shannon Morgan Good Luck Tags 2

Each tag is a little bit different in design, but I have designed them in the same fashion. Take a look at the photo below.  I used 3D Foam Squaresto create dimension and interest to my tags.

Adding Those Photo Corners

Creative Photo Corners, being perfectly symmetrical are surprisingly ideal for creating a star effect. As an illustration, look at this photo to see that the corners are "tucked in" to the tag. The corners are peeking out because of the shape that they are.

I enjoyed sharing this little project with you today! My hope is that I have inspired you to create some good luck notes for your favorite athlete. There are 20 boys who have my heart for at least the next 9 weeks.

Creative Time Needed: 30-90 minutes (based on how many tags you complete)

XOXO ❤ | The Cut Shoppe

Happy Tuesday everyone, Shannon here sharing a sweet layout featuring my crazy dogs, Rock and Lucy. I seem to have a lot more pictures of Rock and Lucy than Paddy and Mack. Paddy and Mack are pretty busy lately. Rock and Lucy have forced me outside many more times than I would like this summer. 

I am happy to document their contentedness of all things summer and outside because they are so cute. I used two files for this layout, Heart Shaped Box & Crazy Love (This may be the second time in ten days that I've used Heart Shaped Box because I love it so much, but don't tell anyone!)

Moments in my kids lives are barreling by. I'm trying to capture them all as they happen. Especially Mackenzie, who is almost hitting the halls as a freshman. As a result, I am still trying to keep up with things that happened in May! Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is definitely going to help me do that with this layout.

Take a look at this layout, you'll find lots of detail, even if the layout itself is simple in nature. Many different adhesives will play the part in the coming together of this layout.

Shannon Morgan  Sunshine Moments

This scrapbook layout has lots of parts and pieces to "assemble". I used the sketch feature on my cutting system to ensure that everything would line up and be straight. You can see this trick in the picture below. This extra step in the beginning is a time saver and sanity saver in the end! After using the sketch feature, cut out the pieces and parts. 

Shannon Morgan Sunshine Moments 2

The first thing you want to do is adhere the cut piece to the outlines. I used a combination of  Dual Tip Glue Penand Adhesive Lines to do this. Adhesive Lines were perfect for the lines of the grid. The Dual Tip Glue Pen had the perfect tip for those many hearts.

IMG_1538

Laying out every piece before adhering it is also a good idea. When you need to use many adhesives because you have a lot of "working pieces" in the layout, this may seem tedious, but is entirely worth the effort. The reason for this is simply, you have no duplicates next to each other. Next, the hearts and grid are all in place, I begin adhering all the "cuts". Working on the grid first, I used my go-to E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenserwith Permanent Strips. 

Shannon Morgan Sunshine Moments 3

Three words: 3D Foam Squares. To clarify, each heart is mounted with foam squares and then put into place. The truth is, this is time consuming. In the end, the effort is   totally worth the pop on your page. Next, I cut my squares in half and added them to each heart as shown.

Here is a close up of the dimension I was telling you about. Look at that! The hearts are jumping off the page, literally and figuratively.

I hope you've learned something new,  letting me share all the ways I used adhesives to create this layout. If not, I hope you were inspired to create something new of your own. Happy Wednesday! ❤

I'm sharing something a little but different with you this morning using Ashley's awesome files. 

I used the "sketch" feature available on the Silhouette first,  and then cut the feathers out. I am using them as embellishments for my bible journaling! Jude's a big deal in our house, Paddy's tied to him forever, taking him as his Confirmation saint. Jude's not mentioned a bunch in the bible, but his letter is simple and to the point.

IMG_1530

I used Flocked & Feathered to add those feathers you see above in the bible journaling entry: 

  Il_570xN.648849332_k4fz

 Here's a few close ups of the feathers, I used watercolors to create the feathers wispy feel.

Everyone deserves mercy, peace and love, seems like the world needs it more than ever at the present! I hope if you do bible journaling, I've inspired you to create some entries in a new way. If you don't, I hope I inspired you to try the "sketch" feature in a new way. ❤ Thanks for letting me share with you. 

 ❤ Happy Wednesday  ❤


Hello Hugs with Adhesive Lines

27545216_10157105193478012_6738606016220942830_n
Good morning, I'm sharing a layout using Adhesive Lines from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today! There were a lot of milestones to document this year. Mack's graduation and official entry into high school was one of them.

Pictures of family are my favorite to document.  Mack and Ba (my mom) certainly made this picture special. Highlighting the photo became the focus of my layout. Specifically choosing and using bright colors and simple layers is a great way to highlight the photo. You too, can create a similar layout if you apply some of the tips I am sharing today.

Shannon Morgan  Hello Hugs Layout

 You'll need to gather some basic scrapping supplies, like papers, embellishments and of course adhesives. I started out, weeding through my stash and picking things that I had hoarded. Don't wait for that perfect layout, card or project, use your supplies!

IMG_1510First of all, let's get started using those Adhesive Lines.  Have you ever wondered what to do with those paper strips at the bottom of your 12X12 sheets of paper? They make great "frames", as in, framing out a layout. Even better? I adhere the strips a little off center, ensuring that it's ok to be "perfectly imperfect".

IMG_1513

The Adhesive Lines are a perfect tool to get this framing done. In addition to being a great detail that packs a lot of punch, this "framing" truly helps you line up your photo as well. Tip: If you'd like your framing strips to match, simply cut strips of a patterned paper or cardstock of your choice.

IMG_1515

The photo needed to be the stand out in this layout, complimenting the title. Simple layering is/was the key to this. You'll notice in the photo, I used complimentary patterns in different colors, primarily creating visual interest and dimension. The photo is oddly sized, for the reason that it was taken on a phone and not with a camera. There are a total of five layers backing the photo, ideally this is personal preference, you can simply use my example as a guide or inspiration.

Using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser,of course makes layering a snap. If you are happy with your layers, adhere the photo to the layout. Additionally, you can begin to work on the rest of your details. There was space deliberately left to the side of the photo for a large title.

IMG_1517

In order to keep it simple, yet detailed, the title is big. Coupled with bright colors and 3D Foam Squares, this title draws your eye to the photo. Once you have the title adhered, begin adding additional touches. Details matter, add as many or as little as you'd prefer, your projects are uniquely you.

IMG_1519

Those foam squares add some great dimension, I took a close up for you to see:

Now that I've shared all these tips and photos with you, create something beautiful!

Shannon here, sharing this layout featuring my spoiled dogs who feel the need to sniff every blade of grass in our yard every single day (multiple times) and then look at me with great disdain when I ask them to come in. You can see in the second layout that they actually contemplated listening to me for a moment. Of course I had to document this, and use some of The Cut Shoppe's awesome files for the perfect embellishment. 

Rock and Lucy have forcibly made me spend time outside in the sun. In the summer. 

They are lucky I love them as much as I do.

Pick Me Up Card Set | Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

Scrapbook-Adhesives-by3L-Logo-reg

I have a lot of friends right now, all around me, and you may also, who need a little pick me up. I used E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill3D Foam Squares White MixE-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and Dual Tip Glue Pen to create this cute set of cards. 

I hope this card set inspires you to create some handmade love for your friends or family!

Shannon Morgan  Pick Me Up Cards VERSION1This set of cards was fun to create, I used twine and other things to add some colorful punches. I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill to get my placement just right on these cards, adding details here and there to each card. I wanted to put a lot of care into the details. Using the repositionable adhesive gives you the opportunity to place things and readjust them if needed before adhering them permanently  to the card, page or project.

IMG_1477

I used the repositionable adhesives for the "sentiment" on the card above. This is the first card in the set of cards, I wanted the sentiment to stick out, but not overpower the card. I wanted the heart to be "just - so" and it took a few times before I had it just where I wanted it.

IMG_1479

 

 

A card set often contains multiple cards, this is perfect when you need a card readily available. I again, wanted that "yay!" sticking out "just - so" and the repositionable adhesive came in handy for just that.

IMG_1480

The final card in this card set was a little less detailed, however, it required attention to the details that were on it. I placed some gemstones on the potted cactus die cut. I also wanted to make sure I had some of the patterned paper sticking out before attaching the sentiment to the card front. 

IMG_1483

Each card needs an envelope to help complete the card set. Did you know that using bags is a great alternative to a traditional envelope? It is! A few accents that coordinated to each card were the finishing touches.
