At the Beach

I love this layout I did of Rocco on the beach in Cancun! I especially love the car digi stamp I used!!
I printed it out on some older paper I had in my stash. The digi stamp is from GeckoGalz
Check out the wonderful vintage images and digi stamps at Gecko Galz.

New layout

Today is my first post on the Amy Mattes Designs blog.
This layout of my great-niece, Aria Rose, uses the scalloped banner printables from Amy's etsy shop, Chocolate Sundae.
I used a scallop punch to add a white border, taped the circles in half, laid them out in my banner pattern and then pop dotted them up. I added rhinestones between and baker's twine at the ends.
I also used BoBunny cardstock and JilliBean paper.

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!

I just love this holiday!! I love fireworks, picnics and the colors - red, white and blue - one of my favorite combos!!
I used Gecko Galz products to create this card and am planning on doing some scrapbook pages later this week. I think Gecko Galz background papers are just perfect for this holiday and their images are darling!!
Visit Gecko Galz to order your own 4th of July images and papers. ( I used the Liberty 8 x 10 paper pack digital and the star spangled digital collage set).
Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!!!
