Hey everyone, thanks so much for all the comments during our team up with The Cut Shoppe.  I hope you were inspired as much as I was.  I combined all the comments and using the random number generator, came up with this winner who commented on my blog.

Pocket Page Fun

Posted on December 18, 2014 by

Hello everyone, it's me, Elizabeth. I'm sharing the last of my pocket pages from this months Everyday Life kit before I switch over to designing with the Scrapbook kit. I've had so much fun using these kits... I feel like whether I'm playing catch up or am right on task the supplies are an awesome fit. So, here are my pages. 

For the second spread I included a few pieces of ephemera... A painting from my daughter, because all she wanted to do that week was paint. A note to my son from a girl (gasp! yes, he gave me permission to scrap it.) :)

I also included a journal card for each of my older two boys. I find it challenging to snap everyday photos of them because between school and work (and electronics) they just aren't "around" as much. Including these little update cards about them at least keeps them in the family mix in this album... yay for that!

So that's it! No more pocket pages for me! --totally kidding, after 3 years I am still addicted to pocket page, weekly scrapping.. so I'll still be doing those too.. I'll just mostly be sharing traditional scrapbook pages here. :) Let me tell you something, the January Scrapbook Kit is ga-ga-gorgeous. Yay for that too! Thanks for stopping by.

Life Is Better: December Kit Layout

Posted on December 17, 2014 by

Hello and happy Wednesday!  It's Jennifer and I'm back to share another layout I created using this month's Main and Add-On Kits!  The papers are so fun to mix and layer! 
I used one of the pieces from the Amy Tangerine Ephemera pack (found in the main kit) as my title.  I layered it with a cute little kraft tag from Jillibean Soup as well as wooden veneer pieces from Heidi Swapp.
The gold dot on vellum from American Crafts DIY line is so beautiful! I cut different sizes of circles with my Silhouette and backed with the vellum as well as other patterned papers. 
Showing more of the circles along with coordinating American Crafts cardstock found in the main kit!
I am a big fan of layering! Showing a variety of the patterns available in the kits! 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out the Paper Camellia shop for available kits, as well as scrap necessities!  Have you seen the sneak peaks for the January kit?  I promise it won't disappoint! Have a great day!

Shine Bright

Posted on December 12, 2014 by

Hi Everyone!  Laurie here today with a cute a simple layout using the December kit.  Hanukkah starts in just a few days and I wanted to capture some of the outtakes of our family Hanukkah card in this layout.  My little girl loves playing with driedles, so I cut out a few dreidle shapes from this month's patterned paper.  Aren't they cute?  
I love all the touches of gold in this month's kit.  The gold rub-on from the Amy Tangerine collection plus a paint pen made for a perfect caption.  
Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season!  I'll be back one last time next week to share again!

These Heidi Swapp Wood Veneer Words and Shapes are a lovely accent to any project! You receive an entire pack in the Main Kit. Included in this month's Add-On Kit are Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge Ephemera Pack. I love the little acetate diamonds!

 I cut my stars on my Silhouette (using the Echo Park Stars cut file #38376) and added a tag from Bella Rouge. 
These Amy Tangerine Thickers from American Crafts are fun to use! Black goes with pretty much anything! 
I love this sentiment from the Bella Rouge Ephemera Pack. I accented it with a wooden veneer arrow from Heidi Swapp.

Everyday Life & Traditional Scrapbooking

Posted on December 10, 2014 by

Hello everyone, it's me, Elizabeth. Today I'd like to share some traditional pages I created using the December Everyday Life kit. While I do love pocket page spreads, there is something so fun about taking these kits and finding fun ways to use the products on full layouts. 

For "Flash" I grabbed this lovely sheet of patterned paper and cut it into strips.. my intention was originally to stitch between each rectangle, grid style. However once I placed them on the cardstock I realized they'd look awesome paired with a photo strip. I layered on embellishments and a title and I love the way it turned out. :)

Here are some close ups..

Here's a smaller page. For this one I used my scraps and those little strips at the top of the 6x6 patterned papers (you know, the ones with the holes in them that seem kinda un-usable?). I wove them into a photo mat. I love the way the colors compliment each other and create texture and visual interest. 

A closer look...

Ok! That's my post for today. As always, I encourage you to use up every last bit of those gorgeous kits.. it's surprising sometimes just how far they can streeeeeetch across many types of pages!
