everyday cards

Posted on November 25, 2015 by

Hello all!  

Today's post has something a little different from me.  Cards!  Some of the elements and the cut apart card sheet were begging to be used to make cards.  Not my usual thing but I really like how these came out.

These were so easy to put together.  They are both ?x? and fit into basic card envelopes.  A few layers of some of the cut apart card sheet, stickers, washi and elements were just right.  

product used: November Main Kit + Heidi Swapp color shine

Thank you for having a look at my project today and I hope I have inspired you to step outside your comfort zone to create something different.

Game Ball

Posted on November 24, 2015 by

Morning Paper Camellia Friends.  Who says diamonds can't be a boys best friend?  More like a baseball diamond!  The Diamond ephemera by Jen Hadfield worked perfectly on this Game Ball layout!  Let's take a look!

See!  It goes with my theme perfectly!  You will find this ephemera along with several other pieces in the Embellishment Add-on kit that matches the Main Scrapbooking kit perfectly.

Fussy Cutting Fool

Posted on November 21, 2015 by

Hello my name is Elizabeth, and I love fussy cutting. Ok, not the actual cutting out intricate designs by hand part.. but the part where you can layer and arrange those pieces around the page.. count me in. When I see a glorious flower print like the one below I grab my scissors and get to work. I even love the way a bit of a borders left on looks. 

Once everything is adhered in place I go through and bend or curl up some of the edges. This gives a cool dimension to the layout that it wouldn't have had if I had not been a fussy cutting fool. (not to be confused with cotton headed ninnymuggins.) 

and because I just finished up my projects & these December kits are SO good I wanted to share a little December sneak.. Oh look, more cutting! I can't wait to share the rest!

Hello, it’s Veera here today to show you a layout I made with November’s main scrapbook kit. This layout is all about flowers and paper strips!

I sort of cheated a bit with this layout. I didn’t want to measure and cut the paper strips on a right angle as at least for me it would have taken too much time. My solution was that I cut just cut regular paper strips of the papers and placed them in an angle to the white cardstock. Then I trimmed the cardstock slightly to even the edges. So the layout isn’t a true 12x12, but slightly smaller. I don’t mind that the layout is a bit smaller but if this is something that bothers you, you can either mat the whole layout to another pattern paper or cardstock (or not cheat and cut the paper in angle from the start).

 

I really love how this layout turned out! I hope you are enjoying you November kits as much as I am!

Loving You

Good morning!  

Today I am sharing a layout of my little girl from a food festival we went to in October.  We actually stumbled on it while we were out exploring Fayetteville, NC.  Of course the highlight of the trip was the facepaint.  She chose a kitty face.  haha

I absolutely love the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane bits in this kit.  So perfectly pretty with just the right amount of pink for my girly pages.  The polka dot washi was just what I needed to balance it out.

Thank you for stopping by to have a look at my page.  Have a lovely day.

Sisters

Posted on November 17, 2015 by

Morning.  My sister is my best friend.  So when I saw the beautiful blue and pink floral paper, I knew I wanted to find the most recent photo of the the two of us.  The beautiful 3x4 cards by Jen Hadfield helped created the perfect sentiment.  Everything floral was going to go on this page, that was for sure!  I don't often get to play with beautiful floral patterns that are on this page.

Hello friends and happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing a layout I created using November's Main and Embellishment Add-On Kits!  There is so much loveliness in all of this month's kits!  Goodies from Pink Paislee, Dear Lizzy, and Pebbles are included, as well as Paper Camellia Exclusives!
The Embellishment Add On kit includes these fun Glitter Phrase Stickers from Dear Lizzy's Documentary collection!   There is many to choose from to create a title for your page!  
I used my pennant hand punch to create a pattern at the top and bottom of my page using papers from Pink Paislee Cedar Lane and Jen Hadfield Pebbles. You can also spy one of the Thankful Stickers and Cork Shapes from Elle's Studio that are included in the Embellishment Add On Kit. 
One of the many great reasons why Paper Camellia kits rock is that there are so many embellishment options!  I love the cute fox Epoxy Shape and Wood Arrows from Cedar Lane; both are included in the Main Kit! 
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! Check out this month's kits as well as be on the lookout for December kit sneaks!  Have a great weekend!
