#throwbackthursday | Layout: Happy Love

Happy Thursday everyone!

I haven't been here in a few days so I thought I'd pop in to share a layout I created a few months ago since it's #throwbackthursday!

I created this fun ruffles layout using a mix of the May and June Gossamer Blue kits.

I have been loving mixing my Gossamer Kits and this was one of the first times I tried it.

I had an itch to create some pretty ruffles too, so I created this fun textured heart using some of the cutest papers I could find from the kits and I cut away slits to create the fun look.

I added my photo to the bottom left side of my heart and added a few layered bits including the papers from the kits and some cute doilies to add to the cuteness.

I mean, aren't doilies meant just for that? I love them!

For my title I used the Thickers included in the fabulous April kits before we went exclusive. I think they still match perfectly!

To embellish around my photo, I used some die cuts from a Traveler's Notebook kit and puffy stickers from the Planner kits.

As a finishing touch I added this cute wood grain tag that has a cute hashtag to the top right corner.

Finally, I backed my white card stock to this perfect matching sage green paper also included in the kits and I stitched all the way around. And done!

This layout was so fun to make and I'm glad I am finally sharing it with you all.

I hope you enjoyed and let me know down below if you'd like to see more #throwbackthursday layouts!

See you next time!

GBDT | Layout Using Planner Kit

Good morning Crafty people!

I am here to invite you all to visit the Gossamer Blue Blog today, as I’ve got some fun stuff on there this morning.

I hope you stop by to see how I made an 8 1/2 by 11 layout using only the June Planner kit.

But that’s all I can say here! Go, now, and read all about how I made this awesome layout on the Gossamer Blue Blog here!

Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll see you in my next post, Xo.

Layout | GBDT | Little Boys…

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you’re having yourselves a fun Saturday. I’ve got lots of celebrations planned through the weekend and I’m quite excited to have some fun filling up my schedule.

But before all that fun stuff pulls me away from scrappy land , I wanted to stop and share another layout and Process Video today. 

Today I am sharing my first project I made for Gossamer Blue using the Main Scrapbook Kit. 

This month’s kit was filled with vibrant greens, oranges, reds, blues and yellows. Perfect for some summery layouts and boy layouts. So I went for the boy layout, of course, and created this:


I wanted to really showcase all of the amazing colors and patterns of the exclusive papers we got in the Main Kit. So I decided to create a paper pieced title and use up all of the colorful supplies to create a fun layout of my son’s album. 

I picked a photo of him when he was a little younger and playing with some dirt at the park. This photo just gave me all the Mommy feels and made me think of how much I love this messy little boy. It made me think of a few nursery quotes that mention what little boys are made of. This photo made me think of what my little boy is made of and I got two things: noise and dirt. Haha. 

I had to make a layout just how I pictured it in my head! 

So, I first used some watercolor paints to create an easy backdrop by brushing four colors and adding matching splatters. 


Then, to make this big title I simply cut out squares the same size, free handing the first square then tracing the rest. Then I feel handed the letters out of the squares each one by one. Easy! 

I then came in with a bunch of extra bits and pieces from the kit to add some fun to my photo. I used the enamel shapes, the rubber shapes and the cork stickers!

How amazing right? So much fun textures items in this kit! 


I did also add stitching to my title because I felt it would ground it better on my page. Finally, I finished off my layout by adding he last bit of the title on a label tag. 


That’s it! 

I think this layout is SUPERB!!! It was so much fun to get it together and then see it come to life. 

I love it! 

So, I did record the process for this Layout and I hope you guys are excited to watch it here:


Thanks for stopping by today! 

I hope you guys have got your June Gossamer Blue Kits ready to play and get some fun summer layouts done. 

Until next time, stay scrappy! 



So, have you ever given the paper piecing technique a try? I’d love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below and let chat. 

Layout | GBDT | Awesome Good Vibes

Hello everyone, and happy Friday eve! I’m stopping by today to share with you another super fun and colorful layout I made using the Gossamer Blue May Life Pages Kit. If that’s wasn’t a mouthful enough, I don’t know what is! 

But anyways, I created a layout using such an unexpected kit and it’s kind of becoming my favorite thing to do. I love being able to use my kits in more ways than they are intended

So this beautiful and colorful layout was made using the pretty colors and cards in the kit plus a bit of stamping using the April Life Pages stamp and also a few pattern papers from the Main Kit. 



I love the completely fun vibe this layout has. I’m in love!

So, I did record the full process and I’ve got a video up on my YouTube channel that I’d love to invite all of you to watch here, so please stop by!


I hope you enjoyed this quick share. Please feel free to leave me a comment below! See you all next time!

Layout | GBDT | You Are My Sunshine

Welcome back, guys! I hope you are all having a great Memorial Day today in the States and for all of you, as well, I hope you’re having a great Monday.

I am excited to be back today to be sharing this layout I made for Gossamer using their all exclusive May Main Scrapbook Kit.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in a previous post but from this month forward, Gossamer Blue will be an all exclusive kit club which means all their items are custom designed every month!

That leaves me super excited to be playing with such awesome supplies and goodies every month.

I have created tons with all the beautiful items they have sent me and the Main Kit was a complete favorite for me. I don’t know what it is, but I always start to play with the Main Kits, and this month I was super excited to see what I would find in my kits.

I found so many beautiful colors in pastel perfect for the month of Spring and Sunshine! So to create the above layout I was completely inspired by this beautiful rain clouds paper.

I immediately knew that I wanted to create a rain scene with this exact photo. It is not the brightest as it was taken during a winter rain storm, but I love the happiness in my son’s face!

I was excited to bring back a little stitching into my layout, since it’s been months since I have done some of this awesome stitching technique on paper. It makes my clouds look soft and fluffy!

I created a base for my photo using some mists and using the packaging technique.

Then, I used mostly the ephemera pieces to add all the special details to my layout, including some super cute raindrops, an adorable little house, and some cute word phrase banners.

On the right side of my photo I included a journaling card, that was also part of the ephemera pack, to write my journaling. I also added a bit of stamping using the set that comes in the kit.

Did I mention these kits are filled with amazing supplies?! They seriously are!

Finally, I created my title by using some alphas I have from old Gossamer Blue kits, and that was it!
