American Crafts Sunshine and Good Times Layout

Hello friends! I have an extra layout for February, using the new American Crafts line from Amy Tangerine! Sunshine and Good Times is all about travel, everyday life and happy colors. 

This layout is all about my sweet cat! Well, technically, she is my daughters cat, and I hope she doesn't take her when she moves out:) I documented all the quirky things about her under the title. 




 The circles are softened with a bit of punched daisies, and splatters of watercolor. The watercolor splatters were made with the new Kelly Creates Brush Lettering Aqua Brush Markers from American Crafts. I love these for lots of mixed media techniques and also for brush lettering!



I love that black background floral from the Amy Tangerine Sunshine and Good times paper pad! It really brings out the colors in Baby Kitty's coat. All the papers on this page are from that line.



You can see the big, bold title from the Vicki Boutin line at the top, and the journaling under it is right justified.



A close up of sweet kitty with a Vicki Boutin Stamp and Die Set butterfly to accent it.

Thank you for joining me today, and I hope you get a chance to play with this fun line from American Crafts soon!
