The Good Life Layout

Hi Everyone,
Wow Wednesday? Ummm what happened to Monday and Tuesday....Weekend is coming and I can't wait. We're heading to the lake all day Saturday...

I have been really having a great time working on layouts. At the beginning of the year I started doing one layout a month. I'm now up to one (if I'm lucky two) layouts a week.

I've been learning so much from Teri my SBFF (ok I know you are wondering what SBFF stands for, it's scrappin' best friends forever). Not only has she directed me to some great scrapbooking resources like Page Maps she's also given me some great tricks on using my Silhouette. Teri has been such a huge inspiration to me and getting me to scrapbook more. Thanks T! You have to check out her layouts this week. Today's layout is my favorite, or wait was it yesterday's? No, no it was Monday's...Well anyway head on over to Teri's blog and check out all the great projects she's been working on, she has even more coming this week...

Today's layout is from Scott's birthday last year. My favorite part about working on this layout was having Scott pick the title and getting involved with helping me. He decided to go with "The Good Life" as the title since we had his party last year at the lake.
Now I will leave you with some pictures of my layout...

Electronic Cutter: Silhouette SD
Pattern Paper: Seaside & 5&Dime (October Afternoon)
Cardstock: Black Bazzil Cardstock
Dies/punches: Ledger Die (Paper Trey Ink), 1-1/2" Scallop Punch, Upper Crest Border Punch (Fiskar)
Buttons: Enchanted Evening (Paper Trey Ink)
Stamps: 7Gypsies Date Stamp (Thank T!)
Twine: Black Twine

Have a great Wednesday!

  7. I love, love, love it!! You're lucky to have such a good friend and mentor. I need more direction!! LOL

  8. Super Adorable!!!!! Do you like the Silhouette better or the Cricut....because I'm confused....which doesn't take much.....why would you want a Silhouette when you have the Cricut....thank you for sharing....

    Inquiring minds wants to know.....

  9. I'm confused, too! What does the Silhouette do that the Cricut doesn't and vice versa?

  10. Great LO! I really need get back into scrapbooking/memory keeping! :)

  11. Love the LO. That background paper is awesome.

  12. I'm so glad to see you doing and sharing more scrapbook pages and layouts you've done with your Silhouette and Cricut. I've been trying to do more layouts, 2 done in the last week in my own personal Cricut challenge (doing something with each of those bazillions of cartridges I have!). For some reason I find it more of a challenge to use the whole diecutting thing on scrapbook layouts than cards! If you get a chance check it out...mine never look as good as yours and I'm open to suggestions! :)
    Your work (or should I say "play"?) is always great!

  13. great LO Christina. Enjoy you new toy!
