It's Memorial Day weekend. Yeah!! This means, a four day weekend spent hanging with family and friends, crafting, having a few beverages, and generally preparing for summer. I spent some time crafting with my wonderful Gossamer Blue May kit. I really loved all of the bright colors. And I have to admit... I seriously considered getting my girls matching sailor type outfits to go with the anchors. I looked... Then walked away.
The first layout is a cute sketch that was on the Elle's Studio blog. I really loved the triangles, and wanted to use my Silhouette to cut out the triangles out of the main paper. This way, they would be perfectly spaced out. I'm such a Seattle girl. I love me some Starbucks. And sadly, they coffee co. plays a part in quite a few of my layouts... This one is focused on the new Clover Machine. If you haven't had a Clover coffee, you really need to try. It is the most perfectly brewed cup of coffee ever. They brew them singly. AMAZING!
As you can see, I used quite a few things from my ever-growing stash of Elle's Studio products. Love local (they are a Washington company!!)
For the second, I was inspired by this blog post on the Gossamer Blue blog. Unfortunately, my layout sat unfinished for over a week. I finally had enough time to finish it. I also really wanted to put a song phrase as my title. I kind of love this one. The little BG envelope has some hidden journalling. And those enamel dots... SWOON!
