Be Happy

A happy and beautiful layout from Melissa Mann!
"I loved the Amy Tangerine line for American Crafts and really wanted to highlight the die-cut shapes from her line of products. I decided to just lay them out on my layout and moved them around until they all fit around my photo. Then, I stitched each one down with my sewing machine. I placed my title and other small embellishments on the tops of some of the die cuts." ~Melissa
Melissa always has the most amazing stitching!

A fun and beautiful layout from Rahel Menig!

Here is a video that Rahel made on how to create the splatters on her layout:
