Love This

Posted on November 28, 2015 by

Hello! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!  I'm sharing a layout I created with the lovely November kits! I received both the Main Kit and the Embellishment Add-On Kits to work with! Ria always does an excellent job mixing collections and this month doesn't disappoint! You have lots of Pink Paislee's Cedar Lane, Elle's Studio's Thankful,  and Jen Hadfield's DIY Home goodies!
I combined some of the stickers from DIY Home and Cedar Lane from the Main Kit to create my title! I love the little wood grain smile frame! Of course, the epoxy stickers are adorable! 
I layered the Fountain American Craft yardstick with papers from the Main Kit, as well as added stickers from Elle's Studio found in the Embellishment Add-On Kit. The Cedar Lane Wood Arrows are so cute and a great accent to your page! 
I used one of the frames from the DIY Home Ephemera pack as well as a cute die cut ombre arrow to accent the side of my page.  I also added another Elle's Studio Thankful sticker as well as an epoxy flower from Cedar Lane.  
The Main Kit comes with DIY Home Washi  that is so cute!  I used one of the strips to border my page along with a pattern from Cedar Lane. 
Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the awesome Black Friday sale going on in the shop!  Have a great day!

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.

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 friends and happy Saturday! Jennifer here today to share a layout I created using this month's Add-On Embellishment kit! There are so many fun choices of embellishments for your pages and projects!  I used a little bit of paper from the Main Kit but my page is 95% embellishments! 
You receive an entire pack of the Dear Lizzy "Noted" Cork Thickers that I used for my title.  I also added a cute sentiment and heart sticker from Elle's Studio's Thankful collection. Along the bottom of my page, I used both sides of Pink Paislee's Cedar Lane "Town Square" patterned paper. I absolutely LOVE this collection! 
After adhering my photo, I wanted to create a sort of banner across my page with the different embellishments! I was so inspired by the fun Cedar Lane Fabric Tags! I also added Ephemera from Jen Hadfield's collection as well as cork shapes from Elle's Studio!
Showing more of the Jen Hadfield Ephemera as well as goodies from Elle's Studio!
I am loving the cute wooden veneer shapes from Simple Stories We Are Family collection!  I used one of the frames with a cork heart as well as a sticker from Elle's Studio. 
I layered a frame as well as card from Jen Hadfield as I really loved the sentiment!  
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope this inspires you to create a layout with just embellishments! Have a great day!

Loving You

Posted on November 18, 2015 by

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.

product used: November main scrapbook kit + Heidi Swapp Color Shine


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

Sketch Fun : 8.5 x 11

Posted on November 20, 2014 by


Hi everyone!  Laurie here today with my interpretation of the awesome November sketch.  I've been playing around a lot with 8.5 x 11 scrapping this month, and decided to interpret the sketch in that size with my layout.  I think it turned out pretty cute!



I made my notched banner details with gold paint pend and black zig marker, then cut smaller flags out of patterned paper scraps and tucked them in behind that super cute camera paper.  I am loving those embossed gold stickers.  I'm loving the entire Open Book collection, honestly.  I love that so many pieces came in the kit this month.  So cute!



I tied some bakers twine to the top of the exclamation point paper clip to make a little tassel clip instead.  I like the challenge of using supplies in unexpected ways, and that clip was calling to be transformed.  And, of course, every pages needs a little bit of doodling on it!  Stars and gold dots are just perfect here.  


If you haven't entered the sketch challenge, there is still time.  It's a great sketch and I know you'll have fun with it.  I sure did!

Filofax Friday with Paper Camellia

Posted on November 14, 2014 by


Hi everyone!  Laurie here with another Filofax Friday, this time using November's kits.  I just love using scrapbooking supplies in my planner, and planners are really catching on in the scrapbooking world.  Several manufactures are introducing planner lines in their upcoming releases.  I'm really excited to see what else is in store.  Most of all, though, I love making things for my planner by hand.  And the scraps of my monthly kit always provide ample inspiration!



The little clips included in this month's kit are a perfect way to mark your current page.  And you know I love to include a pocket page card in my planner to fill out when the mood strikes.  I love putting them in my week in review!




Here are a few close ups of my divider page for this month.  I kept it clean and simple.


I'm mad about metallic!



Hope you're having a great week and having a blast with your kit!  And, as always, if you have a planner page you'd like to show us, upload it to the member gallery -- I'd love to see it!
