Carmen's - Project Life Style

Good evening everyone. I have a quick post to share tonight. A Project Life Style card that I created for my daughter's wedding album.


This is the name of the venue that my daughter was married at. Just a simple card for the date and name for the page. A tin pin from Cuts2Luv, Ki Memories Rub-ons, date stamp and washi from my stash complete the card

I was inspired by the sketch #98 at Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style.


I just love playing along with this challenge. I will share the rest of the page once I complete it.

The Shower

Good Morning Friends, I have another wedding related layout to share with you today.


This layout showcases the invitation that I created from a freebie online and the adorable cupcakes that a local bakery created for me. I took a photo idea from Pinterest and she created them perfectly. My daughter's friend created the diamond donuts which was the perfect addition to our deserts. I added one of the diamonds to the layout as well. I tucked it in on the right side behind the photo.

I was inspired by the sketch from Sketches In Thyme

OH CANADA - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Welcome back for another Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team reveal. This is the last challenge for March under the theme of "Did you Know?" and today's challenge is March is Red Cross Month. Either do a layout that has Red & White colour scheme (can have the plus signs too that have been so popular lately) or if you ever did anything or received anything for the Red Cross you can tell us about that.

I of course being Canadian choose to use the Red & White theme....the colours of our flag. Here is my layout....


2017 was Canada's 150th birthday and the celebrations could be seen everywhere. At the Wayne Gretzky Centre the flags were displayed beautifully. I took pictures of the boys after swimming lessons in the Spring and Fall sessions.

Here are some closeups...


I stamped several of the stamps from the Scrapbook & Cards Today - Celebrate Canada stamp set. They worked just perfectly for this layout.

I also sprinkled a few punched out red maple leafs to the white background.
