Pretty in Pink

Posted on January 30, 2015 by

I just love the color pink.  When I received this kit in the mail I literally squealed when I saw it.  It was perfect for my 2 little girls.  There was more than enough blue and green to scrap my boys but also just the right amount of pretty frilly flowery things for the girls, too.    This first page I wanted to step outside my clean and simple comfort zone a bit.  Those alphas were calling for a little attention especially.  I knew I wanted a larger title near the bottom so I filled the top with a pretty but subtle paper and some layering.  In an attempt to keep a balance I added some smaller strips to the bottom.  I didn't want it to be too top heavy.

A little stitching with my sewing machine and a small amount of my handwriting finished it off perfectly.  BTW, isn't that bow adorable?  I used just the January add-on for this page.  


This second page I used my favorite size, 8 1/2 x 11.  That floral paper by Webster's Pages (the back side to the tufted fabric paper) was so pretty I decided to cut out some of the flowers to add more dimension to this otherwise simple page.  It was just the right touch I think.

This is my middle girl.  She is full of spunk and has a personality all her own.  These patterns and colors fit her perfectly.  She is always making me smile with her silliness.  

This page was a mix of both the January Everyday life kit and the January add on.

Hope you enjoyed these pages.  I certainly enjoyed creating them.

Greeting cards with the January Everyday Life kit

Posted on January 27, 2015 by

Hello Paper Camellia  friends. It's Sandrine here today to share with you the greeting cards I created with the embellishments I still had from the January Everyday Life. Each kit is very well supplied and after all my Everyday Life spreads I still had many cards to use.

It's always nice to receive mail (I mean real mail, in your real mailbox, with a beautiful stamp on the envelope) so I had the idea to create greeting cards for my closer friends.

Do you plan to send mail to your loved ones? Have a great day.

Hi there Paper Camilla fans, Sherri here today to share my last layout of the month with you.
The January kit with all it's sticker sheets, especially the gold puffy words was such a pleasure to work with.  In order to not distract from the perfect colour combination of the papers and embellishments, I decided to print my photos in black & white.
That wood veneer frame was so cute, but I found the little sentiment just didn't work with where I wanted to place the frame on my layout; easy fix: flip it over.   Notice that gold polka dot paper?  It's a piece of the Webster's Pages Beautiful Chic vellum that was included in the Main Kit.  I loved that it was split up into 8 different designs on one 12x12 sheet of vellum.  It would be perfect for cards.

I added a mini supply tag from my stash, to record the journaling, and used a little strip of double sided tape to embellish it.
Interested in seeing what the January kit included?  Check out what you missed here.  And if you don't want to miss out on one more gorgeous kit (and we know they're gonna be awesome given all the goodness we've been seeing revealed at CHA2015).  Hop over here to get yourself signed up for a monthly subscription.

Today, as a little extra bonus, in celebration of my first official month as a Paper Camilla girl, I have a giveaway on my personal blog for some of the embellishments included in the January kit.
You'll have to pop over here to get yourself entered in the giveaway.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today friends.  Looking forward to what February has in store for us, I might just happen to already know it's gonna be another awesome scrappy month *wink*.

Hello 2015

Posted on January 23, 2015 by

It's finally Friday!  Jennifer here to share a layout I created using this month's Main and Add-on Kits.  The "2015" Exclusive Wood Veneer inspired me to do a page about my goals for this coming year.  I am guilty of not scrapping about just me, so this was a perfect opportunity. 
 I LOVE these gold word Thickers from Dear Lizzy's  Serendipity line!  They are durable and are great for titles. You receive a full package in the Main Kit so there are lots to choose from.
I layered a few of the Serendipity Phrase stickers at the top of my photo and added some of the beautiful mint-colored ribbon included in the Main Kit. 
 I love adding a few pennants at the top of my pages. Here, I used my hand punch with a couple patterned papers. I then added one of the sentiment stickers from the Serendipity Phrase and Letter Stickers.
I used this beautiful flower sticker from the Serendipity Accent and Phrase Sticker Sheet and paired it with a sentiment from the Webster's Pages Beautiful Chic Tag sheet.  I love this saying as I try to be aware of always being kind to others.
 I added  few of the Dear Lizzy Serendipity Enamel Dots around my journaling. Love the variety of colors in this package! These enamel dots are found in the Add-On Kit. 
Unfortunately the Main kit is sold out for this month but be sure to check out other Add-ons! Also, be on the lookout for sneaks of February's kits! I can tell you it's absolutely gorgeous!  Have a wonderful day!

More 2014 Everyday Life catch up...

Posted on January 22, 2015 by

Today I am sharing with you some more of my catch-up pages for last year.   These January kits have helped me to finish two more pages from the first part of our summer vacation.  Every year we go to my parents home to spend 2 weeks at the end of the school year.   I usually take the kids out for the last day and drive the 8-9 hours to Arizona.  It is always a fun drive but the part the kids love most is getting there.  They play in the dirt, make things out of my dads extra tractor parts and slide down the gravel pile that sits in the yard.  Of course there are always games with Grandma while we are there.  

These pages were made with bits from the Everyday life kit and the January Add-on

Thank you for taking time to look at my summer pages with the lovely January kits.

Gold and wooden frames

Posted on January 20, 2015 by

Hi, it’s Veera here. I’m just loving all the gold that is all over the scrapbooking world right now. The combination of white and gold works so well and January’s main kit was perfect for creating this kind of two colored layout!

I wanted to use the wooden frames in this layout too. Together with the picture they create an interesting cluster and guide the eye to the picture. 

I always tend to use products in groups of three. In this layout there are clusters of three enamel dots, three word stickers and stripes in three different places. 

Are you in love with all the gold?
