I love and adore you

Hello Paper Camellia friends. Sandrine here for the last day of the month (already two months since the beginning of the year...). As I still have a lot of stuff from the February Everyday Life kit, I decided to create a traditional scrapbooking layout. 

I often use the pocket cards to create scrapbooking layouts, do you do the same?

Are you ready to play with the wonderful next kit?

summer 2014 | february everyday life kit

Posted on February 26, 2015 by

Hello everyone!  Today I am back with you sharing 3 more pages from my June 2014 pocket pages.  Between vacations we just enjoyed being at home.  We scouted photo locations, played in the sprinkler on scooters, made bracelets and ate ice cream.  These girls were good sports while I stuck a camera in their faces a lot.  

Spread 1

Oh and our plum tree gave us plums for the first time.  Unfortunately that basket full was just about all we got.  The birds seem to like them as much as we do.  

Spread 2

My little 6 year old fashionista had no trouble smiling for the camera.  Especially when frozen yogurt was on the menu as a treat for being patient.

Spread 3

Anyone else have kids who don't want to share ice cream?  :)  Even in the pretty "tent" with the perfect weather there was no sharing.  Good thing the cones were exactly the same.  Someone may have missed out.  *snicker


Thank you once again for stopping by to see a little look into my summer.

Using the February Everyday Life Main Kit only.

Keeping it Simple

Posted on February 25, 2015 by

One of my favourite things about the Paper Camellia kits is the exclusive wood veneer that's included, and this month was no exception.  I love the font of the "Beautiful", and really wanted to use it front and center as part of my layout.

After shuffling it around for a while, I decided to use it as a title, and sandwiched it in between the Crate Paper Kiss, Kiss foam alphas, which are my favourite foam alphas ever.  The American Typewriter font is perfect, I need to get my hands on more of these puppies for sure.

To colour the unfinished wood, I simply used my Memento Dew Drops ink pad, and dabbed it directly only the wood.  My white liquid glue is what I always turn to to adhere my veneer to the page. 

I spoke last week about using stickers and 3D foam adhesive to help create layers.  Here is another example of just how easy it is.  Four stickers from the sticker sheet in the February kit, and 1 piece of 3D adhesive and I've instantly got a little texture and dimension to my layout.

A pretty simple layout, not a lot of layering, and hand typed journaling keep the focus on the photos.  Sometimes simple is all you need to tell the story in a beautiful way.

Using a big picture on a layout

Posted on February 24, 2015 by

Hi, It’s Veera here. Today I want to show you a layout that I made using February’s main kit. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of layouts featuring a big picture and I wanted to give that trend a go. The pinks in the kit worked really well with a greyish black&white photo.

Normally I use a lot of white space in my layouts. This layout was a challenge to me as there wasn’t a lot of empty space. That’s why I decided to keep the whole layout really simple and used only a small number of embellishments.

Those glitter stickers from Crate Paper were a pleasant surprise! I was worried that there would be glitter all over when I open the package, but that wasn’t the case. Those glitter accents were perfect to bring a little bling to this layout.

As the picture was so huge, I wanted to decorate it too a little bit. As there was an empty space on the top right corner, I cut some banners from the papers and added some hearts too.

Have you used a big picture on your layouts yet?

When is too many sticker and tags too many?  Not sure you can say that about these uber beautiful items included in this months kit.  Everything is truly spectacular standing alone.  Add them all together and I think it makes it that much better.  Mary-Ann here sharing my second blog post for this month.  Like my last post, I did not focus on my one true Valentine but on both of my important boys.  Anything that said the word Valentine, I covered with wording from the paper included with the kit.  Lets take a look.
You just wait until next month people!!!! Keep checking back to see what the rest of the team is creating with this beautiful kit.  Don't forget to tag us on IG and Pinterest, we would love to see what you are creating!

Ice Skating Fun

Posted on February 21, 2015 by

I love that when Ria puts together a themed kit, it's still general enough to use for an everyday page.  The February kit was perfect for a layout of Davis' first time skating.

I always love all the bits and pieces Ria adds, and this month was no exception.  Here are a few closeups.

So much fun, right?  I have LOVED this month's kit, it's probably my favorite kit so far.  Thanks for stopping by the blog!

Hi Paper Camellia Friends. Sandrine here again with a new double spread. I decided to document our daily routine with random photos about us. Well, not really the routine because my oldest daughter turned 16 that week (I can't believe it). The right page is dedicated to some memories of this day, before making another spread on her birthday party.

I had fun mixing black and white photos with green and orange touches.
These pages were made with bits from the Everyday Life kit and the February Add-on.
I hope you enjoyed your kit as much as I do.
