Live Beautifully Australasian Blog Hop

Live Beautifully with these creations in our Australasian Blog Hop!

Your life is full of everyday beauty that deserves to be remembered. During National Scrapbooking Month, we celebrate the beauty of life with our exclusive, limited-time Live Beautifully collection.
This collection includes the Live Beautifully paper packet, the My Acrylix® Live Beautifully stamp set, and the Cut Above® Live Beautifully layout kit.

I've chosen to use the paper packet and stampset for these projects. (They are part of two workshops I created for my National Scrapbook Day workshops.) I whipped out my paper packet and stampset along with my stack of how to books for inspiration. I settled on Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 and created this layout within minutes. I stamped directly on the pages after I'd stuck the squares down. Some folks call me "a bit ballsy" for stamping on an assembled page. That's part of the thrill for me! (If you're not so ballsy, simply stamp onto some White Daisy cardstock and fussy cut before attaching.)

After I finished my layout, I created two more. Using the leftovers, I made up 4 card designs (2 of each design for 8 cards total). This is one of the designs and I think it's my favorite! Simple rectangle cuts with some gold glitter paper thin cuts = easy. Use our fine tip glue pen to attach the hello. It's the easiest way to attach thin cuts to cards. I've tried our 3L® E-Z Dots® Adhesive and I didn't like the way some dots peeked out the edges. Glue pen it is!
To get those fiddly bits in the letters out of the thin cut dies, I poke through the pilot holes in my dies with the tip of my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors. Seriously, if you don't have our Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors yet,! They are the best scissors I've ever used in my crafting career, period.

Live Beautifully is such a versatile collection. I'll be ordering at least one more paper packet for my stash before the month runs out!
