Love 2 Surf

This was my last Hawaii layout. It is so sad to put the whole trip behind me. I just loved working with the beautiful pictures. All of God's wonderful creations. I guess it's time to go back. The PP used was from Reminisce and Bazzill, of course. Font used is Cuttin' Up. Surfboard came from Graphically Speaking and was cut at 2 3/4 inches. The Hang 10 was design using CDS. TFL

Wikiki in Calligraphy font

I absolutely had to use the new Calligraphy cart I got for Christmas. I haven't had occassion to use it yet. I cut Waikiki at 2 1/2 inches and shadowed it with a coordinating Bazzill green. Just this little bit of green made the colors in the photos pop. So I added a little more green. The swishes were cut at 2 1/2 inches and was too big so I place it under the photo and cut another at 1 1/4 for the title. Journaling frame cut at 3 1/2 inches. I used the Basic Grey PP Euphoria and it is really PP, rather subtle too. Prima flowers and sparkles added.

Another Hawaii layout

Hanauma Bay was cut with Alphalicious. One of my favorite carts. Paper is Creative Imaginations and 3D elements are K and Company. I love this paper it really complements the photos nicely. Sure wish I was there and not here right now. 

Pearl Harbor in Basic Grey

In both layouts, the Granola Basic Grey paper, chip elements and coordinating buttons are used. Cricut font was Base Camp for the Pearl Harbor title and Plantin School book for the other. I used the navy motto here because it so depicts what these men exhibited during the attack. May we never forget what they and countless others have sacrificed for our freedoms. I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.

More playing with Sports Mania.

I have been saving these football pictures for years. I am excited to finally get them done. I cut the football frame using Prism paper that's football textured and adding a cutout square from George in CDS to create a frame. Football is life was cut out at 3 inches from red Bazzill paper and chalked to the hilt to make it blend in. PP is from Bo Bunny.

I just love the Sports Mania cartridge. My only wish is that there were more. Paper used is bazzill and one sheet of Reminisce. The swoosh arrow come from Graphically speaking cut at 7 inches. Football was cut from textured football paper and stitched with white floss. Everything was chalked with Cat's Eye ink.
