Hello! Jennifer here to share another layout with the awesome August Main Kit!  The kit is full of fun embellishments from Pinkfresh Studios as well as bright papers from Crate Paper and Fancy Pants Designs!  I love the "Let's Eat" Paper from Elle's Studio so I wanted to do a food themed page!  My husband and I attended a crawfish boil this past spring! I love seafood but I just couldn't do it LOL
I used the Twilight Navy Thickers from American Crafts for my title as well as added wood veneer stickers from PInkfresh Studio's Happy Things collection.
You also receive five assorted fun frames from Crate Paper's Poolside collection. I used one under my title as well as added Puffy Stickers from Pinkfresh Studios. You can also spy one of the Exclusive Paper Camellia glitter foam stars that are in the Main Kit!
I really love this wooden veneer border from Pinkfresh Studios! Such a nice accent under my photo!  
At the top of my picture, I added another Puffy Sticker from Pinkfresh Studios as well as a kraft tag from Fancy Pants Designs and a PC Exclusive Glitter Gold Heart! 
Thank you for stopping by today!  Check out the Paper Camellia shop to see this kit plus the many more great Add-On kits!  Have a great day!

one of those weeks | everyday life

Posted on August 21, 2015 by

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!

Birthday Time

Posted on August 17, 2015 by

I couldn't resist making another main kit only page this month.  I loved that "Happy Things" paper from Pinkfresh Studio and knew it'd be perfect for a layout of my daughter's 14th birthday.  Here is the layout I created.

I added some cut files from The Cut Shoppe for the title and as an embellishment, but everything else is from the main kit.

Thanks for visiting the blog today, hope you are having as much fun with the August kits as I am!

It's Summer

Posted on August 14, 2015 by

Want to scream, "it's summer!" on a page like I did? What better thing to reach for than bright and beautiful sunshine? I have a little girl who basically turned into a fish this summer. When I saw this patterned paper I knew I had to use it for her pool photos. 

I sewed some rays and clustered some embellishments and, viola! This layout came together in a snap! Don't you love it when that happens? Pages like this make me happy... like a full, sunshiny day at the pool. Ah summer, soak it up while you can.

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?

Coulter Family Fun!

Good morning!  I am a huge fan of sketches and this layout happens to be based on the sketch from this month.  You can go HERE to take a look at a couple different takes on it.  Let's take a look at my sketch and how changed it up a bit.

You can from the above photos that I flipped the sketch and had the heaviness over to the right instead of the left.  I did feel that I needed an anchor and added paper to the left side for balance.

I painted the wood veneer dark blue to help bring in the dark blue letters that are available in the scrapbooking kit.

I also interpreted the sketch onto a card.  For this card, I left the heaviness to the left.  The card is pretty simple but still very cute to send to a friend.

Wonderful Love

Hello friends! Jennifer here today to share another layout created with this month's awesome Main and Add-On Kits!  The mixture of papers from Amy Tangerine's Rise and Shine and Elle's Studio's Cienna collections go so well together!  I am loving the blues and pinks! 
For my title, I used one of the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine Grace Gold word Thickers found in the Main Kit.  And from the Add-On Kit, is one of the cute Fancy Pants Designs' Office Suite Flair Buttons!  To accent, I added a couple of the enamel shapes from My Mind's Eye On Trend  which is one of the Main Kit embellishments! 
I cut out one of the snippets from the Elle's Studio "You Are" sheet from the Add-On kit and added two of the Office Suite Labels, as well as an enamel dot and washi tape from my stash.
I love the Elle's Studio Wood Veneer Shapes found in the Main Kit! The are a cute addition to accent your page! Here, I used the "precious" tab with more My Mind's Eye Enamel Shapes!
Thank you for stopping by today!  This month has lot of fun add on kits so be sure to check out the Paper Camellia shop to order yours!
