This set of pages today is created using one of the ideas from the idea insert that is included with the paper packet! The layout design is from the CTMH how to book called  Magic,  "One- Way Mirror"! On the hand out it only shows a one page layout so I completed the other side using the coordinating page design featured,   and finished it of with some of the left over circles...

DOTTY for You layouts!!

Good Morning,
Today's Dotty pages were created using a sketch from a sketch book by Alllison Davis. I have created this same layout design with many different paper choices and love how different they all look!! I will post more throughout the week!! Have a Fabulous day!!
As promised here are a couple more samples using the same layout design, but using different patterned papers! I love that it changes the whole look of the layout... I didn't add any finishing accessories, titles or stamped images to these so you could finish them any way you want... Maybe circles for blowing bubbles, watermelon, balloons, to name a few!

Dotty for You!!

I just have to say I LOVE the  "DOTTY FOR YOU!" paper special!!
I’m crazy about the fabulous artwork you can create with the Dotty for You paper packet during National Scrap booking Month! Each promotional paper packet includes an insert with a picture of the artwork, a recipe, and a unique technique, for inspiration. Here are a few of the fun techniques you can use to create the artwork samples shown...

Sweet Life Page

 Making Embellishments Stand Out

 Add a bit of white, solid space behind decorative elements, such as this Bakers Twine bow, to help them stand out on busy B&T Duos® papers, like this chevron pattern.

Kiss Page

Pin Flags Technique

Make a darling accent from your paper scraps by trimming a complementary banner and wrapping it around a pin from the Bling Assortment (Z1466) to form a small pin flag.

Good Luck Card

Here’s a little bonus project that you can make. This one isn’t on the insert, but I had to include it because it is so cute, it was created by the talented Lisa Stenz..
.Neutral Inks for a Clean Look 
 To create a card with a clean, crisp look, use the dominant neutral color to stamp your sentiment.

Yo-yo Accent 
Create a trendy yo-yo element by accordion-folding a long strip of cardstock every 1/4", adhering the two ends together to make a circle, stitching the center with thread all the way around, and pulling the ends of the thread taut to create a yo-yo. Secure the center with a button to keep your yo-yo flat.

 Remember, you can get this great paper packet including 24 sheets of card stock weight B&T Duos and artwork idea insert, for only $5 when you order just $35 of products in the current Idea Book.Plus, if you add another $10, you can get the stamp of the month for only $5 as well!!!

May Scrapbook pages

In May I chose to create with the FUN paper packet named Cruisin (X7154b) ! 
This paper pack has some awesome papers to use for many different masculine pages, summer travel, boys at play, etc... I chose to create a page for Summer travel titled Cruisin.....

I inked everything with black ink. The stamps that I accessorised with are from the WSOG kit G1039, stamp set Adventure USA D1503, and Born to Ride C1483... If you would like a kit or have any questions feel free to contact me!! Hope you have a wonderful Summer with your family :)
