Layout - DT Project - "Wishful Thinking"

This is "Majicou" and "Timothy" watching birds and butterflies from the safety of their outdoor enclosure. I used stenciling in the background, lots of chipboard lazer cuts (palm trees, fern fronds, bird cage, dragonfly, and grasses) from Gina's Designs.  The two gorgeous butterflies are from Reneabouquets. Die cut foliage by Marianne Creatables.

DT Project - Perpetual Calendar by Gina's Designs

These calendar kits are so darn cute!  I struggled trying to figure out which way to decorate, I had too many ideas.  I finally decided to just crackle it and let the beauty of the crackle finish and the design speak for itself.  I plan on doing another one with lots of tiny roses, and design paper.  It was just so hard to decide.  Really fun!!  You can find this kit made of sturdy hardboard at Gina's Designs.  This perpetual calendar is a very sturdy piece you will use for years to come.

DT Project for Gina's Designs - Romance Layout

This layout features one of the new Build-A-Layout sets now available at Gina's Designs.  This set is called Romance and is here just in time for Valentine's Day.  My layout also features a lazer cut chipboard filmstrip which is also available in the store. These pieces can be used for a layout, cards, embellishing a mini album, perhaps a canvas for your special Valentine to hang on a wall.  Lots of possibilities here.  I thought it would be fun to do something retro so I chose Lucy & Desi.  There are alternate pieces also in the set to choose from including a cupid, an alternate title and an alternate heart shape.  You can see the set HERE.  I had so much fun creating this one.  Hope you like it.
