Darling Layout

Hey there! Hope the middle of the week is going well for you! I’m in my first week back at school and so far it’s going great! I love the beginning of a new semester and I can’t wait for what’s ahead.

I just wanted to pop in and share a layout I made using the Crate Paper Kiss Kiss collection. I was feeling pretty lovey dovey and since Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, I wanted to document this photo using lots of hearts and pink.



I combined some chipboard, acetate pieces, die cuts and stamping on this layout and I love the effect of layering it all together. I also am really into framing my photos with some white paint streaks, so including that on here as well.




Hope you enjoy it and have a lovely day!

Photo for Friday

Hey there! I've been on a mini blogging vacation this week, which I never really intended to go on. I love blogging and sharing my work with my fellow crafters, but I'm in create/deadline mode right now, so I don't have a lot of projects I can share online…yet. 🙂 They'll be coming soon. So, I thought for today I'll share a fun little photo editing project I did using some of my favorite PS techniques.


For this photo, I used the Sugar Crystals action from Print Candee and then brought in the blur tool to focal the eye on the Chrysler building in the background of the photo. In my original photo, I hated the dark building to the right, but after applying the action, it brightened it up and created the perfect place to rest a title. 

I took this photo on my October trip to the city with my Sony Cybershot point and shoot. Although New York was not the easiest place to live, I sure do enjoy visiting it often. The architecture, the food and the atmosphere (for the most part) always excites me. I'm looking forward to going back in June to see "Once the Musical"! It's based off of one of my favorite movies (and the show came highly recommended by Kelly Purkey), so I couldn't resist grabbing tickets. This next time, I'm bringing my DSLR and can't wait to get some fun photos around the city!

Hope you have a great weekend and I'll be back Monday with an actual card project! 🙂
