We have another day of inspiration from our Just Because Guest Designer Piradee Talvanna. Again, she shows us how to use this collection for just the adults in your life. But, let's get to know her a bit more and then she can tell you all about her projects...
LYB: Do you have a favorite adhesive?
PT: There are three adhesives that are a must have for me (and massively stock up on). American Crafts & EK Success foam dots (different thickness), EK Success/Herma dotto and Beacon 3in1 liquid glue (I use this for every and anything).
LYB: Sit down or stand up scrapbooker?
PT: I’m definitely a “sit down” scrapbooker as the majority of the creation process is spent just starring at the unfinished layout imagining how it would look finish. Now if only I actually scrapped as I “think”, then I would definitely get things done much much faster.
LYB: Do you scrap chronologically or out of order?
PT: Definitely an out of order person, I can be documenting something that happened last month and then jumped to last year event and then back to what happened last month again. As much as I love doing this as it gives you the freedom to scrap any topic but I do find that there are some things that fall between the cracks. This year I’m taking on project life and therefore hoping to capture all those moments throughout the year in a more chronologically order (or so I hope). *wink*
Hope you guys had a super sweet time, whether it’s spending time with that special someone (or doing something special) and/or with a bunch of friends!
I’ve got two fun projects to share today… a little something to capture that special moment and then maybe a little naughtiness. First is this layout that I created focusing on the reds, navy blue and grey tones in the Just Because collection; capturing that special moment that we shared on one of our trips. I think this was when I was trying to negotiate something with hubby (the puppy eye look and his is more of the yeah right look/grin).
Having some fun here with my die cut machine and punches to create the cluster of die cuts in the middle. Also I mixed up a few of the embellishments along with that awesome silver heart chipboard die cut to create the border along the top and bottom of the page. The phrase stickers in this collection are perfect for adding the finishing touches… oh sweet love LOL.
And for the second project I wanted to create a little something to give dearest hubby… some fun loving valentine coupons. I created a set of six coupons but you could definitely create tons more as there’s just a huge arrange of embellishments in this collection to choose from and are super easily and quick to put together.

Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
