Twinsies Layout

I've been rotating through different colletions lately so I thought I should work with my Maggie Holmes supplies. I went through my cut files until this one from Paper Issues caught my eye. I thought the flowers were similar to the paper. I'm sure glad I like the final product because it sure took a long time!
I debated putting some white gesso behind the flowers but I chickened out. I used thread instead.
Supplies
Crate Paper - Gather
Paper Issues cut file
Title: Fancy Pants - Life is Beautiful
Stash buttons
Black thread
Chipboard and yellow paper: Crate Paper - Bloom
Black Sharpie
Outlines:
Tombow Twintone black marker
Banner: Crate Paper - Chasing Dreams
White cardstock

Stay Sweet Layout

It's so nice having cute nephew pictures to scrapbook. Here he is eating a lemon. I decided to use the sketch at Let's Get Sketchy. The colours in his shirt made me think of the Amy Tangerine collections and I used mostly Hustle and Heart.
Here is the sketch:

Lake Life Layout

I wanted to use the current sketch at Stuck Sketches which uses 4 photos. I rarely have 4 photos of the same event so I found these lake photos. I have lots of beach supplies from Paper House Productions so I decided to use the Lake Life Collection. The diamonds at the top of the sketch made me think of this triangle cut file from Paper Issues. I cut a few extra triangles to back in a darker brown to add some more interest.
Here is the sketch:
Supplies
Paper House Productions: Lake Life Collection, Beach Cardstock Multi Pack, Travel New Jersey 2D Stickers
Paper Issues: It's Geometric cut file
Silhouette Cameo
Black pen
