Hi all!  Brenda here with something a little different.  For this week I have an 8 1/2 by 11 page.  I used the same Everyday Life kits and had a little fun with the cards, papers and elements.

These photos are from last summer when we took our RV through Texas and visited two of the most amazing beaches.  This was the first time the kids had seen the ocean.  They were completely in awe and never wanted to leave.

the layout:

Don't you just love those tiny alphas?  The color is my favorite so I have a feeling they will be used a lot.

the details:


All these amazing little bits from the Main Everyday Life and Details add-on really make this page.  I adore the stars that were in the details add-on are probably my fave from these kits.  I used them on two pages this month.


What are you creating this summer?  I know I will be making many more pages like this.  I see lots of adventures in our near future.


Have a wonderful day,

Be wild and wander

Hi, Sandrine here today to share a spread made with the July Everyday Life Kit and especially the exclusive Paper Camellia supplies. The cards have a very softy touch (yes I like the paper contact) and I love their modern design. No matter how I mixed and matched, the cards and the acrylics are coordinated and I created my spread very quickly.

How are you using your July Everyday Life kit?

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello!  Jennifer here to with a layout I created using this month's Main Kit!  July's kits are stocked full of beautiful papers, embellishments, and PC Exclusives!  
I cut "rays" of different patterns and adhered to the Ivory American Crafts card stock background. 
For my title, I used one of the gold glitter word stickers from Heidi Swapp.  Also you can spy enamel shapes from the My Mind's Eye "Hello World" collection, as well as an exclusive PC cork heart! The Main kit includes beautiful Jen Hadfield Puffy Phrase stickers from Pebbles!  I used this "now is the time" gold circle sentiment to accent my title. 
Also included in the Main Kit is a 12x12 Chipboard Sticker sheet from Crate Paper's Journey collection. I used one of the chipboard frames on top of my envelope (which I lightly sprayed with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine).  
I used the ledger card for my journaling including the Navy Simple Stories SNAP letter stickers and a cute geotag enamel shape from MME!
I am loving this acrylic heart and arrow PC Exclusive!  Such a great accent to your page! 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to look at all of this month's kits with awesome add-ons! Have a great day!

Cub Scouts

Posted on July 23, 2015 by

Good morning.  Mary-Ann with you today to share ANOTHER boy layout.  I am excited that I am getting so many things scrapbooked.  I have used the Main Scrapbooking kit and the Embellishment Add-on.  I will say, the add-on is pretty spectacular.  There are more things included in this than I will ever have time to use.  Letters, words, 6x6 paper pad, ephemera and so much more.  Be sure to check it out HERE.  
Lets take a look at my layout for today.
This was pretty much the last Cub Scout event for the boys.  The received their amazing trophies for competing in the Pinewood Derby.  The fearless leader has volunteered so much of his time along with his wife. They have actually been leading for 4 years now.  I think we all take advantage of volunteers, or do not fully appreciate how much work and time they actually put in. I am thinking I need to take the time to thank them again. 
So, I want next months kit to be EXACTLY like this one all over again.  It is jammed packed with bits and pieces that I want in duplicates!
Only thing I added to the super products was a piece of cardstock and a bit of Stickles.  Oh and machine stitching of course.
I hope you have been inspired throughout the month.  It is quickly coming to a close, but new fun stuff is just around the corner.  See you again real soon.

Hello, It’s Veera. When I was going through the papers from the July main scrapbook kit I just loved the look of the ”Tribal” paper from Crate Paper. In fact I loved it so much that I instantly started thinking about how I could get the most out of this paper so that I can use it in several layouts. My solution was to cut the paper and create a similar pattern to a white cardstock.

To secure the pattern I sewed down the papers. I think it added a nice texture and feel to this layout.

As the pattern was so bold I tried to be practical with the embellishments. I added majority of the embellishments near the picture and title. I also added few chipboard feathers tone on tone with the papers.

What is your favorite paper from the July kits?

Making the Cut

Posted on July 20, 2015 by

Hello there! Today I want to talk to you briefly about something I've found myself doing a little more of lately.. cutting up patterned paper. Sometimes fussy cutting one of your favorite patterns makes for a cool textured background. For this page I cut out each section by color. After arranging them off-center on the page I decided stitching would be an awesome final touch.

The arrow-like positioning of the paper and embellishments lead the eye right to the photo... and that lovely wood veneer word, which I just happened to paint glitter gold, and now just happens to be my title. 

What's inspiring you to make the cut lately?
