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!
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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
