Hello! Jennifer here today to share a layout I created using the April Main Kit!  This beautiful kit is full of new papers from Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye, and Pebbles! The soft pastel colors along with the gold accents and wood grains are a perfect mix! 
I used a combination of letters from the Crate Paper Celebrate Chipboard Thickers and stickers from My Mind's Eye On Trend line. 
Using a circle punch, I layered different patterned papers to create a fun waterfall effect.  I also love the gold foil arrow sticker from On Trend. 
Showing one of the cute stickers from My Mind's Eye On Trend! You receive five sheets in the Main Kit! 
I added a few more circles and layered more chipboard and stickers from the kit! Also included are the Maggie Holmes Confetti sequins, as well as Confetti enamel shapes.
Thank you for stopping by today!  Stop by the Paper Camellia shop to see this month's kit as well as the fun add-ons!   Have a wonderful day!

Sweet!

Hello! Stephanie here with my last layout using the April kit. Where did the month go?

Check out those chipboard pieces! Aren't they fun?!

I confess that I've started organizing my photos from way back in 2003 and this happens to be one of them that I printed to be made into a layout. I don't know if I will ever be caught up, or if I really want to be caught up, but I will tell you that using a Paper Camellia kit makes it much easier. Everything coordinates so well in these kits that all you have to do is add photos!

I'm usually a big fan of "white space" so most of my layouts reflect that. I started this layout from the top and left a trail of gold to the bottom left corner to draw the eye. 

May kits are just around the corner! Make sure you like Paper Camellia on Facebook and follow us on Instagram to watch for the big May kit reveal!

Again and Again..

I didn't even realize when making the layouts below that I had used the same patterned papers for backgrounds on both. The three pieces just coordinated so well, I guess part of me wanted to use them together again and again. 

That's the beauty of purchasing a kit. Someone (Ria) has done all of that footwork of mixing and matching and coordinating and put it together in one little neat monthly package for us! We can turn around and make page after page with ease again, and again. 

Can you spot the three papers that caught my attention?

By using different embllies and stickers it's easy to change the look of the pages drastically, even though you're using the same products. What kinds of things have you been doing again and again with your kits? I'd love to see more projects posted in our gallery. Show us what you've made!

I couldn't wait to scrap these pictures of my little guy enjoying his "peeps pop" Easter morning.  The soft colors in the April kit really balanced out the bright colors of the peeps, and the pops of black were just what I wanted.  Here's my layout.

I used one of the sayings from Maggie Holme's Ephemera pack (I trimmed out just the word sweet) along with some cut files from The Cut Shoppe for my title. Here's a closeup.

Have a great Friday!

You 2 Lovelies

I love when a kit gets you so inspired you barely have all the items out of the package and you can see a layout coming together in your head.
That was the case with this page I created using the April kit.  I knew as soon as I saw those leaf die cuts how I was going to use them.  The rest of the design just fell into place once I had them down on the page.

The Maggie Holmes chipboard sheets are so fun, with varying patterns and coordinating colours.  I just had to incorporate a few pieces into this layout.   To keep my title from over taking my design I clustered it together, and chose the tiny alphas from the My Mind's Eye package to help complete it.

Journaling on tag may be an addiction of mine.  I am a big fan of telling the story behind the photo.  For me it's the primary reason I scrap, it's not just about wanting to look at pretty pictures years from now, but about remember the story behind the photo for generations to come.  Using shipping tags tucked behind my photo helps me to keep enough white space for my liking while still getting the full story down on paper.

Are you in the habit of story telling also?  What is your trick to getting it all down without compromising your design?  I would love to hear your tips in the comments.

You can still get your hands on the April Kits right here in the Paper Camellia shop.

Sweet & lovely

Posted on April 22, 2015 by

Hi, It’s Veera here today with a yummy layout! It’s all about the sweet and lovely apple pie that my husband made for us one weekend. I love to document the little things from our everyday life!

I still love using gold in my layouts. The gold starred vellum that was included in the April Add-on was so pretty combined with the gold vellum triangles that were in the main kit’s Maggie Holmes ephemera pack.

As all the gold takes a lot of attention, I kept the rest of the layout pretty simple. The mint striped paper from My Mind’s Eye (April main kit) was a perfect background.

I hope you like this layout. Make sure to check Paper Camellia’s blog tomorrow for more inspiration!
