49 and Market "Summer Breeze" 12x12 layout

Hello Lovelies. I hope that your creative souls have kept you all busy during these difficult times. Today, I bring to you a 12x12 layout created from the Vintage Artistry Sage Collection Pack. I did add 1 page from the original Vintage Artistry. I loved the design that looked like a photo strip. I took one of the elements from the laser cut sheets and cut them in thin strips. I machine sewed on them  in straight lines and zigzag and then adhered the strips to the edges of the layout.

The beauty of the Sage Collection pack are the laser cut sheets included in the pack. All of the layering was done using the laser cuts. I topped them with the gorgeous flowers and leaves and tucked in the lovely butterflies. I sprinkles some art stones around the layering to give it a garden feeling. I dotted the clusters with the smaller Wishing Bubbles. I repeated the process for the lower cluster.

I fussy cut the photo strip from the paper, adhered it to the background paper, raising it with some corrugated cardboard. This became the focus and foundation for the entire layout. Once it was laid out, I began embellishing the entire layout. It came together so easily using the Collection Pack. The wreath was created by adding the leaves and vine from the Sugar Petals pack and the Pixie flowers. I die cut a floral wreath from kraft paper and added it for fullness.

Here is a closeup of the wreath I created by using the 4 stems from the flower pack and twirling them around the paper wreath, Then I cut apart one of the medium leaves and tucked each leaf  in the wreath. I scattered some Pixie Petals on the wreath. Under the wreath I added a Kraft cardstock Spellbinders die cut wreath. I cut 2 of them and layered them for added fullness.

To add dimension to the layout, I raised the photo cluster and both top and bottom clusters, using pop dots and pieces of corrugated cardboard underneath. 

The laser cuts make it so easy to layer your clusters. Add a few flowers here and there, and your cluster is complete. Adhere the butterflies by the body only, then gently lift the wings.

After my cluster was complete, I added some Art Stones and the smaller Wishing Bubbles around it for more texture.

Thank you for joining me and letting me share my layout. I hope it brings you inspiration to create. Be sure to follow the 49 and Market blog for more beautiful inspiration.

Heartfelt Creations June 2020 Blog Hop

Good Morning!! I hope everyone is having an awesome day! Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop for June!! A randomly chosen comment from a mystery blog will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations. To claim your prize please email Heartfelt Creations at

Today I have created for you a 12x12 layout using the UNder The Sea Paper collections and the featured Flowers are from the Small Wild Rose collection. I absolutely adore the Wild Rose! There are so many possibilities for shaping these flowers, but the Shaping Molds makes it so easy! I used 2 papers from the Under The Sea Paper collections and fussy cut the title banner out of one of the papers. I layered the papers on corrugated cardboard, and distressed the edges to have some of the cardboard show. It reminded me of drift wood you would find at the beach.

Here is closeup of the flowers. I added some gorgeous sparkle using Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear to the flowers and leaves. And the yellow Stamen were enhanced using some yellow Flower Soft I had in my stash. I dipped the tips of the stamen in gue, then the flower soft.

Sometimes all you need is 1 Leafy Accents vine with a couple of flowers for a fill in. I love how the Shaping Molds add such beautiful dimension to the vine. Just a spritz of water to the die cut, place it in the shaping mold and I run it through my Big Shot. Easy as that for dimensional leaves.

Tucking the different Leafy Accent designs under the flowers created a beautiful floral cluster. I love how they cascade over and down the corner of the photo. I few strategically placed yellow butterflis finishes the layout.

49 and Market Beach themed Mini Album

Hello Lovelies!  I have created a mini album using the beautiful 6x8 Seaside Shipwreck Collection pack. The Collection comes complete with papers and fabulous laser cuts that I used throughout the album. The smaller laser cuts were the perfect size for my 4x6 mini album. The cover has a shaker dome that I filled with some of the tiny laser cuts, beads and silver microbeads. There is a crab, a starfish and a seashell under the dome! I used an awesome camera die set to create my mini. The die is created by Crealies. It was the perfect size, and I was able to create a lot of pages with the 6x8 papers. The beautiful flowers are the Sugar Posies in Tutti Frutti. I used elements from the Underwater Layered Embellishment Set to tuck in spots on the rest of the cover.

Here is a closeup of the shaker dome I used on the cover. You can see the many pages which also have flipouts, and waterfall pages. There is a lot of room for small photos and journaling inside the mini. I had a lot of fun adorning many of the pages. I chose a coordinating base cardstock for each page, then topped them with the papers from collection pack.

I created the spine using the burlap and the Lacy Trim, and created a tassel by tying the 5 ply jute around the spine, tying a barrel knot on top, and taking apart the braided sections below the knot. I then strung beads and charms from each individual string. The back of the mini was adorned using elements from the Underwater Layered Embellishment Set. I absolutely adore the beachy theme of this mini.

I love to make the dangles for the books and mini albums I create. I strung lots of Sea themed beads through the jute, and tied a barrel knot on the top.

Another view of the beaded dangle.

On the inside I have flip pages. some flip open once, and other flip open 3 times. I embellished some of the pages with the smaller laser cuts in the 6x6 paper pack. The size is perfect for this smaller album.

Even though there were a lot of pretty designs on the papers, I still embellished them with the little laser cuts in the 6x6 paper pack. I just loved them all! Creating the little scenes was fun!

Here is another page that flips out. I simply adore the art on these pages. The colors are so beautiful!!

This one opens 3 times. There is plenty of room for photos as well as journaling.

This is another closeup of the Tim Holtz dome I used to hold the tiny laser cuts from the 6x6 paper packs. I added a crab, a starfish and a shell, then poured in some beads and microbeads.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you were inspired to create a mini album of your own. The smaller paper packs are perfect to create these types of projects.

"My little Petunia" 49 and Market Vintage Artistry in Lilac...

 Hello Beautiful People!!! Today I bring you a layout created with the gorgeous Vintage Artistry in Lilac from 49 and Market. I can't tell you how gorgeous each and every page, and all of the embellies are. I had so much creative fun just layering all of the elements, then tucking in the flowers, dragonfly  and butterflies.
This mini collection is a must have. The laser Cut Sheets in the Mini collection are awesome! So many embellishments to choose from.

I added a cluster to the side of the layout. I took one of the paper designs from the Ephemera pack and die cut a tag, and put some jute cord through the eyelet. Even bits and pieces were used to tuck in the layers. No piece of paper is ever wasted!

I machine sewed the photo to a piece of paper from the Ephemera stack. I used some of the beautiful  Washi tape to tape it down to the layers underneath. I simply adore the purple flowers from the laser cuts. It is almost the star of the layout. I just love all of the purple and lilac. It is my favorite color.

I machine stitched around the whole layout, and then did some machine stitching on the different paper layers. If you look closely at the eyelet lace paper laser cut, I tucked the throw away edge of the 12x12 paper behind it. I love that 49 and Market uses this piece of paper. Even if I don't use it right away, I save them all! They make a great filler!.

Oh my, the line of Sugar Posies are the sweetest flowers! Just look at the color I used. Huckleberry. They are the perfect shade of purples  lilac.The larger flowers are  Wildflowers in Punch. The pink offset the purple in the layout.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope  that you were inspired to create your own magic.

May 2020 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

 Good Morning!! You are on the right track if you made it here from the very talented Amarilys Doria's Blog!! Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations May Blog Hop.
A randomly chosen comment from a mystery blog will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations. To claim your prize please email Heartfelt Creations at with "Winner of the May Alumni Hop" in the subject line.

It has been a while since I have designed for Heartfelt Creations, but the joy of once being on the design team, gives me the awesome opportunity to be on the Alumni Design Team. I just had to jump back in, as I added some gorgeous new stamps and dies, plus the shaping molds to my vast collection of Heartfelt Creations products. I created a 12x12 layout.

I used 2 different collections for my flowers and leaves. Oakberry Lane Blossoms and the Wild Rose collections. I also used the Leafy Accent stamps, die and Shaping Mold to add to the clusters of flowers. I mixed together various inks to achieve the colors I wanted for the flowers and dies. Then I topped each piece with the Crystal Clear for brilliance.

I wanted a simple title for my layout. This little girl, my first granddaughter is so loved and cherished by all. One word is all that was needed. I used a Dusty Attic Chipboard for the title, and used white gesso and Lindy;s Stamp Gang spray to color it.

I created the frame using a background mat cut from the decorative paper, then added the die cut corners from the now retired Decorative Butterfly Border Die HCD 702. So if you see a set you love, grab it, because someday it will be hard to find once it is retired.

I mixed together some of the prills to mach the flowers and paper. I fringed some yellow paper for the middles of some of the flowers and added the prills to the middle. On the fringes, I used some flower soft on the ends.

I love the look of hanging vines, so I just dropped the smaller flowers and leaves on the bottom of the bigger flowers, and tucked in the Leafy Accents.

 Thank you for joining me this month, I hope you were inspired!

49 and Market "Charlotte"

Hello Lovies!!! Today I am bringing you a new layout created with the gorgeous new 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Mini Collection in Butter!! It is a mini collection that is a must have. With 4 double sided paper designs, 2 laser cut sheets and a bonus design in the back of the cover sheet, there is so much you can create. 
I did some  machine sewing around the edges of the paper, did some stenciling with modeling paste, using Finnabair's Tapestry stencil, then mounted it on a piece of 12x12 corrugated cardboard. I slightly distressed the edges, tore out a piece on top and bottom of layout, rolled the pieces back,  and began the embellishing. This collection was perfect to scrap my grandaughter, as she is always a beautiful ray of sunshine. 

I absolutely adore the Ephemera Stacks. There are 39 different mix and match pieces in the pack from big to small. I chose the smaller pieces to layer on this part of the layout, and added a laser cut butterfly from the 12x12 collection. I tucked in some flowers, and added some wispy string underneath.

I also layered and stacked the bigger pieces behind the photo. I did some machine stitching around the pieces to add more texture. I chose to use blue flowers for my accent color. It lends a great balance using the cool color with the sunny yellow.  Tucking in the butterflies here and there, lightens up the layout. I have a thing for butterflies and 49 and Market makes sure to add them to so many of their collections.

I did a little stitching around the sentiments dictionary word. I enhanced the yellow in the paper with Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio Pineapple Paradise and Bonjour Butter sprays. Then I placed some Wishing Bubbles all around the layout to finish it off.

 I simply adore the butterflies in this set. The buttery yellow reminds me of a warm sunny day!! I also did some messy machine stitching around the photo wheel.

Thank you for joining me this week on a fantastic 49 and Market Journey!! Be sure to check back daily for more creative inspiration from the designers. Stay safe and healthy...

49 and Market. Breathtaking... A 12x12 Layout

Hello lovelies! Today I bring you some inspiration from Irrevocable Beauty. The collection has a gorgeous range of colors from greens, purples and peaches. I chose to use 2 papers in the 12x12 collection. I cut the large frame out from the fussy cut elements paper, stenciled it using a Dusty Attic stencil,  stamped it with Gabi's Line Stitch Stamp, then backed it with corrugated cardboard. I then adhered it to the Cultivate paper. This gave the frame a shadowbox look. 

I loved mixing the flowers with the laser cut flowers from the collection. They blend together so beautifully. The little laser cut ladybugs and bees were scattered throughout the layout. I printed up some of my own butterflies to add to the layout. You can visit my blog for the free butterfly file to print for your own.  I also scattered some Wishing Bubbles around the layout as well.

The Sage Stitched Frames and pieces from the Sage Collage Stacks from the Vintage Artistry collection match beautifully with the papers from Irrevocable Beauty. I layered them, and added the word "breathtaking" to the tab. You can see the intricacy of the laser cut pieces. No need to fussy cut!!

Thank You for joining me today. Come back daily to see what the Design team has created to inspire you. Every day is a feast for the eyes, and creative beauty for the soul!

49 and Market Vintage Artistry Coral

 Hello Lovelies, Today I bring you a layout created using Vintage Artistry in Coral. The background paper design is so beautiful that I decided to leave it as is, except for a little color wash in green around the floral clusters. I had plans on tinting the gorgeous white flowers, but decided to leave them white and add some coral colored flowers mixed in. All of the leaves were dies cut from the scraps I had been saving from the 49 and Market papers I have been using. I sprayed them with a couple of different green colors to blend in with the green in the background paper. I adore the laser cut elements because you just pop them out and place them on your projects. So easy if you don't like to fussy cut.

I created the words in Photoshop, then I cut a piece of the 6x6 paper down to 5x3.5 and ran it through my printer to print them out. I mounted the words on chipboard and created my journaling. I adore the tiny little ladybugs in the Irrevocable Beauty Laser Cut Elements pack. I scattered the ladybugs and bees around the page. And my little luvbug looooves grasshoppers, so I had to get one on here!!

The polygons were die cut from the 6x6 paper, and layered with corrugated cardboard in between, to give them some dimension. I arranged them diagonally across the page and that was the foundation to my layout. From there I tucked in all of the greenery, then arranged all of my flowers.

I die cut polygon pieces in different sizes and layered them with the larger polygon on the bottom. For the photo, I die cut the photo for the 3rd top layer.

I cut down one of the 6x6 paper's to 5x3.5. For the title journaling, I used Photoshop, then printed the words onto the 5x3.5 cut paper and ran it through my printer. I cut each individual word, mounted each word on a piece of thick chipboard and adhered it to my layout.

I hope you are inspired to create your own projects using 49 and Market. Grab a paper collection and start creating!!
