Good Times Layout for ***49 and Market***!

Hello everyone, 
I am so glad you are here visiting my blog again. I feel so happy while creating with 49 and Market products and I hope that shows in my second layout. For this layout I used a picture of my husbands cousins I just love this picture so much and they are such amazing young ladies. Annelijn the one in the middle is pregnant and I am so excited for them they have such a strong bond with each other and that show in this picture at least that is what I think. For this layout I used the Sand & Sea and Cottage Life collections just to show you they go wonderful together.

Good Times: 
I went feminine again because that is where I feel the most comfortable with, although I took out my Bluebells & Linen flowers and they are still laying on my desk lol.... Sometimes I wish I could make masculine layouts as good as other scrapbook artists can. I think to much while making those I guess...I took two of the same sheets from Cottage Life the "Bicycle Ally"one and cut the top of then I layered them on the pretty green sheet named: "Garden Seeds" so that I had two beautiful branches with flowers in the upper right corner and in the lower left corner.


 For the middle part I took out my 8x8 Sand & Sea paper pad I only had three sheets left of that paper pad and I used the backside of the "In the Bluff" sheet. Then I cut out the middle part of my 12x12 green sheet and used it for matting my Sand & Sea sheet I glued them together and took out my scissors and at the end I added white dots on it. Again the chipboard pieces are by The Dusty Attic they are treated with gesso and later one with acrylic paint, ink, embossing powder and waxes {oh I love that stuff}

49 and Market products used: Blossoms Blends Natural Blush, Floral Mixology Mojito, Sand & Sea 8x8 Collection, Garden Seeds Natural Blush, Garden Seeds Watermelon,  Seaside Blooms Natural Blush, Gabi's Whimsical Door Stamp Set, Gabi's Postcard From Paris Set & Cottage Life Layered Embellishments.

Beyond the Stars Layout for ***49 and Market*** & ***The Dusty Attic*** + Playing at Scrap & Craft!!!

Good afternoon lovely friends, 
How nice of you to stop by my blog! Today I'd like to show you a layout I created with the lovely Sand & Sea collection but not in a beach theme, to show you how versatile this collection is. Last Saturday I gave my first workshop using all pretty 49 and Market & Dusty Attic products for four lovely ladies and I have to say, I really enjoyed it so more workshops to come from me. I am in love with all the new flowers wow they are the best on the market for me, for this layout I used some of the new collection in the colors poppy, sandcastle and Aloe. 

Beyond the Stars:
I had printed out this picture for a long time now and I finally had the layout to use it for. This picture turns a smile on my face and it reminds me of my own childhood. Peaking through a window in these type of cloths ....so eighties and so precious. I used the top page of the Sand & Sea collection as the base of my layout and I cut out the middle on which I stamped with Pascale her new stamp.


For this layout I used some new Dusty Attic black word tabs/tags and I have to say I am smitten by them they add some much to you work as all the pretty flowers do. The other chipboard pieces are treated with gesso, ruste paste and waxes by Finnabair oh I love that stuff so much. I am very happy how this layout turned out because I did not want it to be a beach layout this time.


49 and Market products used: Blossoms Blends Poppy, Floral Mixology Mojito, Blossoms Blends Sandcastle, Sand & Sea Collection, Garden Seeds Sandcastle, Cottage Blooms Poppy, Vintage Shades Sage Blossoms Seaside Blooms Aloe, Jute Cording Single Ply and Pascale's Writings Stamp.


Other products used: Dusty Attic chipboard, Stencils, Paste, Lindy’s Stamps Gang sprays and embossing powders, Stamps, Mica Powders, Cheese Cloth, Clear gesso, Gesso white, Ink.

I will also be entering this months challenge at Scrap & Craft where we have to use Autumn Colors...love that challenge as I really enjoy making someting with these colors....
Thank you so much for your visit today I hope you enjoyed my post and are inspired by it to use your 49 and Market & The Dusty Attic goodies… have a lovely day and weekend.

For this blog hop I made a "Thank You" card with the always pretty "Walking in the Forest" collection by Maja Design this is a older autumn collection but still one of my alltime favorites. For this card I also used that amazing new Acorns and Leaves die that just came out last month it is a amazing size just a little bigger so you can also use it on a layout too but for now I made a card to show you all. 

Thank You:   
Oh boy am I in love with those leaves that come with that die.....it's absolutly worth you money if you buy it. The butterflies come from the Maja Design collection but Cheery Lynn has many butterfly dies in their collection to use as well.

I wanted to use all autumn colors but highlight some blue in it  that's why the thank you phrase and background is that color as some of the leaves are too. The rest of the colors are more earth tones which are great for these types of cards

The Beach Life 8x8 Layout for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning lovely bloggers,
Do you also love summer as much as I do?
 I just can not say goodbye to it jet....so I will not and you will see that on my 8x8 layout that I show you today. For this layout I used a picture of our son back in 2010 when we where in Spain for our vacation I just can't get enough of these lovely pictures of him. I used the amazing "Sand & Sea" collection by 49 and Market for this layout.

The Beach Life: 
First I cut out all the dies that I wanted to use as I normally do when I create a project for Cheery Lynn Designs. Then I place them on my background sheet and look what I like best....after that I work on my background with stamps, sprays and paste. I distressed all the edges you see on my work also the matt behind my picture and the outer borders of my layout.


The flowers are treated with Lindy´s Magicals and white spray and I added a pearl in the centers. For the background I used a bubble stencil with paste once it dried I added star dust stickles on the bubbles to let it shine a bit.

I just love how the dies compliment the paper and the colors go so well together. I am very happy this layout tuned out the way it did. Don't you just love these flowers??? Awesome Bohemian collection one of my favorites of Cheery Lynn Designs.



Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies. You could also visit my blog at Amy's Pretty Papers for more inspiration.
Have a wonderful and sunny day!
