A Cat's Life | 17 Turtles

I am a guest designer for 17 Turtles this week and I have 2 layouts to share with you!

17 Turtles is owned and operated by Juliana Michaels and it's a Digital DieCut shop. Juliana creates her own digital diecut shapes and offers them to you at a great price. I love her store and the variety of shapes and backgrounds she offers. I find backgrounds help me in creating new layouts and makes it a great way to use up scraps too!

here is my page -- called A Cat's Life

I LOVE the bright colors of the Simple Stories SN@P Cat Collection and wanted to create a fun page using Juliana's awesome background called Circle Grid

I used the background as a start to my page and added paper pieces behind the grid.

For My title I used the Good Kitty kit and used pop dots under A & LIFE to give it some dimension.  From this kit I also used the paw and the heart shapes.
It's really a great variety and awesome for Kitty Lovers !

I hope you enjoyed my layout and of course off to Juliana's shop to purchase your own cut files ... She Just added a few more of them today!

Also if you visit her blog you'll find another layout of mine using 2 other kits.
please visit her blog and facebook ! She's got a few FREEBIES on her blog !

Life Documented Oct 2012 | Simple Stories

I am here to share with you my October 2012 Life Documented spread using the NEW SN@P! Seasons! Simple Stories Designers were also in partnership with Therm-O-Web this month. I used some Glittler Glam Spray.. LOVE that stuff!

Often times we are overwhelmed by products and photos. It's hard to decide what to use - what not to use and this post is just that! I decided for the month of October I was going to simplify and use a few photos and few products. What's awesome about this SN@P set is that you can do a several spreads with just a few cards!

I first sorted all the FALL / AUTUMN / HALLOWEEN Cards, Squares & Pieces and a few Stickers. Some cards I wouldn't use such as Halloween cause i didn't have any photos of hubby and i being ghostly! But what i did instead is use the B Side of the card for a coordinating background to my photo!

If you look closely to the Autumn Filler Card - I Sprayed it with Thermo Web Glitter Dust. I love this stuff!! It gives my card a glitter effect in seconds!

I love the simplicity of this spread. I only took a few cards, cut up some pieces from 3x4 cards or 4x6 cards and added Stickers using Thermo Web - 3D Foam Sticky Strips and Zots 3D.

Here are individual pages of my spread.

Look at this filler card - even the dots are glittered!! SO Easy with a little spray!

Here are 2 more close up shots -

So with just a few awesome SN@P products you can create an awesome spread for your LIfe Documented Album. No Stress on which products to use just select a few from the Seasons collection and you are ready to Create!
