Hi Sandrine here today to share a scrapbooking layout. That's right that I'm part of the Everyday Life Kit Design Team but I enjoy creating scrapbooking layouts too. Every month I still have unused embellishments for my Everyday Life album (you all know that the kits are very thick) and it's fun to use them for a different purpose. Do you do the same with your Everyday Life Kit?

Supplies used : August Everyday Life Kit, April Everyday Like Kit, February Add On Kit.

Hi Paper Camellia friends, Sandrine here today to share the last spread created with the August Everyday Life Kit. This kit is so pretty that it continues to inspire me. Love the pastel colors and the doodles from the Pink Fresh Studio papers.

See you soon with the next kits, the sneak peeks make you want them right?

one of those weeks | everyday life

Good Afternoon all!  

Today has been one of those days.  I am sure you can relate.  haha  In fact, this page was about one of those weeks.  Their were not a lot of photos taken but I did get to see my husband for a couple of days while he was miles away doing some job training.  Like 9 hours drive away from us...for 3 months.  I was at the end of my rope and lacking any desire to do anything creative.  Thanks to the visit with my hubby and the beautiful area we live in, I got it back.  This page pretty much documents that feeling.  Loneliness, sadness and exhaustion turned to joy and happiness.  Life is sometimes like that.  I love to document those things because life isn't always rainbows and ice cream.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a lovely crafty weekend!

Why not mix and match patterns that normally would not be matched together.  People are matching stripes with polkadots and plaid with with stripes too!  I loved both of these amazing papers in the Everyday Life Scrapbooking kit and put them together.  Let's take a look.
This layout is super easy and simple, yet it looks complicated because of the busy designs of the papers.  Give it a try!

Good stuff

Yes that's right, all the embellishments from the August Everyday Life Kit are good stuff. I really enjoy playing with the pretty golden hearts and stars, the colors match so well and the ephemera are so cute. Have you noticed that I added gold paint on the wood veneer? An easy way to personalize it with the color of your choice.

And I still have embellishments to make other spreads, so we meet again soon. Have a good day Paper Camellia friends!

June 2015 | Everyday Life

Posted on August 12, 2015 by

Good morning all!  

Brenda here today to show you my second page for June.  This week was very quiet.  We didn't do a whole lot which was nice.  In fact this whole summer has been pretty chill.  With our really large move and daddy being gone for a few months, the kids have pretty much wanted to just relax, play with their friends, go to the pool and sadly, watch tv.  Thankfully Grandpa is living downstairs and lets them watch all the tv they want.  haha

There has been a lot of Bandit (our ferret) snuggling, dancing, coffee, sleeping in and some pouting.  Poor Kaitlyn is still to small to wander beyond our cul-de-sac by herself.  It makes her very sad.

August Everyday Life Main Kit

I absolutely loved the Everyday Life Kit this month.  The colors are so bright and pretty.  It is like a lovely little bit of sunshine on my pages reminding me of summer as I flip through my book.  

How is your summer?  Are you enjoying a laid back quiet summer or is yours full of on the go fun?
