I am sad to say that Moments of Tranquility Shop has been closed for good.
I am grateful for the years of support and kindness that I have received. :o)

Hi friends!  Natasha here with a layout I created with the stunning new collection by Pion Design called 'For Mother'.  The elegance of these papers is breathtaking.
I layered borders and designs that were cut from the papers.  Pion Design collections have so many images on their papers that can be cut and used as embellishments.
This cluster is made using some of the new Dusty Attic Blooms!  They are so beautiful!  I also used mulberry flowers, seam binding, lace and bling leaves.

Aside from hand stitching and eyelets, I further decorated my layout using Design Adhesives by Clearsnap.  I covered the adhesive with embossing powder and heat set the design.
This chipboard element was cut from the Corner Flourish #2 by The Dusty Attic.  I decorated it with a simple coat of paint and ink.

The chipboard letters were layered and staggered using foam adhesive squares.
This definition describes my daughter perfectly!

Thank you for taking a peek at my layout!  Have a beautiful day!

Hi everyone!  This is a layout I made using Donna Salazar's new Storybook Collection.  This is such a fun paper line to play with.  I really had a good time creating this layout.  :o)
I used Fiber Paste to create the brick background and added color with ink.  The "PLAY" tiles were cut and embossed using the new Mix'd Media Playtime Dies by Spellbinders.
The Sprockets were cut with the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprocket Dies.  I cut them out of Kraft labels from the Mix'd Media Stax by GCD Studios.  The Sprockets were then embossed with Truffle Mix'd Media Inx embossing powder.
These letter were cut using 'Donna's Alphas' dies and adhered with Zapdots.  I love dimensional layouts so Helmar Zapdots are one of my favorite adhesives.
You can see punched pieces of The Crafty Chronicle peeking out from under the torn paper.  The blue punched edges were embossed with Denim Mix'd Media embossing powder.
The sun and clouds were cut from one of the Storybook papers and decorated with eyelets and hemp cord.
I cut these images out  from the 'Storybook Cards' paper and overlapped the images on the 'Fido' paper (with Zapdots, of course). 
Isn't Fido scary-looking?!  Okay, maybe not LOL.  

Thank you for stopping by today!

Before I go, I'd like to show you a few of my Clip It Ups!  I now have numerous Clip It Up products and they have helped me organize my studio so that I can easily find and access my supplies.  Take a peek...

Embellies and Flowers...

 Alphas... lots of alphas on my Clip It Up Jumbo!!

All of my yummy Dusty Attic goodness...

Bling and pearls... I love how the Clip It Up Mini fits in my storage units!

This is where I hang my layouts for display.  My children like to look through them.  I love the Swinging Wall Arm

The Base Unit fits nicely in this unit from Ikea.

I use the 18" Ribbon Organizer to hang my color samples, glue dots, etc.  This organizer hangs right next to me above my table.  I use the top part to temporarily store product that I am using at the moment and that need to be put away.

 I recently rearranged my studio AGAIN so I haven't had the chance to fill these up yet.  These are perfect for odd spaces such as this.  There is a door to the left of the Wall Mounts, so I wasn't able to put shelves in this space or else the door wouldn't open.  So I installed the Wall Mounts which hold loads of product!

This is your last stop on the blog hop.  Thank you for joining us!  If you got lost along the way, you can return to the Simply Renee Blog for the full list of blogs to visit.

Good Luck!
