Hi! Ria on the blog today with a layout by Becki Adams. I love this layout, because it's a great example of documenting ourselves. I know I love creating layout after layout about my family and loving the stories they tell about our lives. But it's just as important to document our own stories, the ones that let us express who we are at the moment, where we've been and the journey along the way!
Thank you for stopping by the blog today!
Hi! Aimee on the blog today. Thinking outside of the box. I found this digital template at Studio Calico. I then turned it into a cut file for my Silhouette Cameo. It was meant for your photos to be diamonds. But since I was using pictures I already had, I choose to let them be at an angle.
Using some photos from my recent trip to Gainesville Florida, I focused on the giant mosquito that I ran into. And then I worked in other photos I took while there. This was really out side of the box for me, and I’m pretty pleased on how it turned out.
Thanks for stoping by today.
Hi! Janice on the blog today. One thing I love about creating with pocket pages is that there are no rules. Your picture doesn't have to fit into one pocket. You can cut up a 12 x 12 pocket page to create an insert. And you certainly can place accessories both inside on top of a picture or on the outside of a pocket. Here are 3 different pictures where I placed a cork star (from the April Everyday Life Kit) on top of a picture that I will eventually place into a pocket.
It would work just as well placing the cork star on the outside of the pocket. It's whatever works for you. You make up the rules.
Thanks for dropping by.
Ria on the blog today with another lovely layout from our April Guest Designer, Jennifer Haggerty.
Jennifer used both the Main Scrapbook and Add-on kits on this layout. Using the pattern papers, and bits from the ephemera pack from Fancy Pants to layer under her photo.
Jennifer did a great job using the embellishments in the kits. The gold foil paper from Chickaniddy Crafts has been a big hit, and makes for great titles.
We are happy to have Jennifer joins us this month as a guest designer and we look forward to sharing more of her layouts next week.
It's Kristine Davidson with you today. I would like to share two cards I created with the April Kit.
This first card is called XOX.
Just a card for everyday things...nothing says "Hello," "Sorry" or"Miss you" like a few XOXs. I added a few grey enamal dots, twine and pop dots to give my card a bit of dimension.
I also created a sketch for you to use as you wish for this card ;-)
This second card is Called Let's Go! A great card to invite that special friend on a weekend getaway or week long trip to California! I used the globe, the post card and camera diecut for this card as they were just perfect for this theme. I always love a little twine or ribbon on my cards so I added a bit of natrual twine to it.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and hope your being inspired to create with the Paper Camellia April Kit ;-)
Hi! Ria on the blog today. After working on several layouts, I found the papers from Crate Paper and Fancy Pants Designs in our April Main kit perfect not only for travel pages (think Spring break) but for the everyday layouts that make up most of my memory keeping. And I just love how Becki Adams used this month's kit. She designed a page featuring her boys and it looks great. Clean, and crisp, she brought all the elements together beautifully! And since I have three boys...this is being scrap lifted as we speak!
Here is a look at Becki's layout....
The mix of the enamel and wood stars makes for fun texture.
The Fancy Pants Designs ephemera pack goes a very long way and makes this kit very usable.
Thanks for visiting the blog today and we hope you are inspired to create something wonderful with your April kit!
Hi Aimee on the blog today. I decided to change things up a bit and scrap 8.5 x 11. And it felt good. A chance to change things up just a little bit was awesome. I love the simplicity of this layout too.
I took this picture at Rite Aid while waiting to get some Thrifty’s ice cream. It’s really the best ice cream ever. As a child walking into the pharmacy you knew you could talk your parents into a scoop, cause hey it was less then $.50 cents. So adding the bicycle die cut was a no brainer for me. I actually had a bike similar, but yes it was pink. This layout is a totally reminiscent of my childhood, except my mother would have never let me take my bike of our street.
