Blog Hop List Day 3


With all the formalities outta the way, time to see what I've created for today's hop!

First up is this pretty page with the beautiful Live Your Dream collection,



Sigh! Isn't this pretty?!!
The colors in the Live Your Dream collection really have my heart!
So dreamy & divine!

Here's a closer look for you....



So very beautiful!
The navy cardstock is a really elegant base & allows the Live Your Dream papers and embellishments to take center stage! Love it!

*Cut file is called Round Floral Frame & is courtesy of Handipaper.

Here's a couple close ups for you....


From pretty pattern papers, to wooden epoxy buttons, to chipboard and clear stickers, ephemera and more - this collection has it all! 



So.much.loveliness! 

Next up is a really fun page using one of the brighter and more daring pattern papers from the Live Your Dream collection....


Oh, how sweet is this?!
Such a cute puppy! 
And what a striking pattern paper! 
I've used it to cut out the heart cut file, as well as a frame for my white cardstock base. 
Gorgeous! 


To compliment the chipboard and ephemera hearts, I've backed the pattern paper cut file hearts with coordinating cardstock. So effective!


Simple & sweet! 

The Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection is perfect for all your memory keeping needs! 
I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects with this collection today!
