Hello friends! Jennifer here today to share a layout I created using the fun October kits!  The gorgeous papers and fun, little embellishments are perfect for just about any theme! 

 

Don't you just love the bicycle print paper from My Mind's Eye's Mint Julep collection?   At the edge of my photo, I also added pieces from the Mint Julep Ephemera pack which is found in the October Add-On kit.  I love the mixture of the colors and gold accent! 

 

In the Main Kit, you will find these lovely gold letter Thickers from the Jen Hadfield Pebbles line.  They really make your title pop!  I again added some additional Mint Julep Ephemera pieces, as well as a cute enamel heart from the same collection.   

 

 I pulled more pieces from the Ephemera pack to create this cute banner. I then stitched through with my sewing machine and then added a gold foil heart. 

There is so much gold in October's kits!  In the Add-On kit, you will find the Jen Hadfield's Cream with Gold Dot paper.  It is even more gorgeous in person!  I added a piece as a background, as well as added a cute red/white polka dot tab and gold arrow.   

Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out the Paper Camellia shop to see this month's kits!  Also be sure to check out the December Days kit that is FULL of beautiful papers and embellishments!   Have a wonderful day!

Hi Paper Camellia fans, Amy here to share another page using the gorgeous October kit.  I had the best time creating this page.  I started by using my Cameo to cut out the background I wanted to use (I used Hip to be Square found here at The Cut Shoppe), misted the die cut, then used some as frames for my pictures, patterned paper and my journaling.  Here's the end result.

 

Here are some closeups.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, and don't forget to check out our October sketch challenge, which you can find here.

Hey everyone! Jen here sharing a pocket page layout I made for a travel album I have been working on. After our trip to Europe in summer 2013 I have struggled with how I wanted to document the trip and so it kept being put off. Since I had randomly done some 8.5x11 layouts throughout the year using my favourite photos from this trip.. I decided that my original plan of a 6x8 album just wouldn't work for me, but 12x12 was just too much space and album... so 9x12 won. I ended up cutting down a 12x12 Project Life page protector and sewing up the open edges. 
Jen Ritchie for Paper Camellia October Kit
I am very guilty of being an extreme ephemera collector and hoarder when it comes to travelling.. however I often forget to use it when actually making my albums. I have made using ephemera one of my goals for this albums and so I have cut down a paper bag from a shop in Germany bringing that traditional Bavarian feeling to the page. The bold colours and graphic font of the the October Everday Life kit went perfect with the photos and the bright blue of the bag. I also love using words or phrases that we learned as titles, so I created a simple card using a phrase we used often "prost" which means "cheers" in German.  
What do you love to use in your travel albums? Are you good at using your ephemera that you collected on your travels or does it sit in a shoebox like mine does?

Fall into October

Posted on October 13, 2014 by

Hi there.  Janice here today to share two pages with you that I created with the amazing October Everyday Life Kit. 

This kit has an assortment of gold bling that worked so well with the rest of the assesories.

Also in the October Everyday Life kit were unique cork pieces, perfect for labeling and highlighting.

I love the die-cut frames and wallet sized cards.  How would you use them?

Thanks for stopping by.

Filofax Friday

Posted on October 10, 2014 by

Laurie here again with a peek into my Filofax this month using my scraps from the October kits!

Here is this week, along with the front of this month's tabbed divider.  I loved that gold dotted cardstock and wanted to enjoy it everyday!

And the gold ampersand paper -- well, I loved it too!  So I used it as well.  But are you ready for the best part of this divider?

It's also a pocket!  I cut two pieces of scrap into dividers, and stitched them together to make this awesome little pocket that I'm using to stash a few Everyday Life journaling cards for when I want to record something on the go.  

 

I'm loving the rich reds and golds in this month's kit -- it is a great combination as Autumn starts to set in.  I hope you enjoyed this peek into my planner this month.  Maybe you can try sewing a pocket folder too - it's so easy and super handy, too!

Ephemera + Kit

Posted on October 07, 2014 by

Hi Everyone!  It's Laurie here today sharing a layout and some thoughts on using ephemera on your scrapbooking layouts.  Last month my little girl was creating some toddler art with big stickers on a canvas and I wanted to capture the memory and save a little bit of her art, too.

I pulled one of the giant stickers off of the canvas and used it as a layering piece in this layout.  Luckily for me, the colors matched the Webster's Pages paper perfectly!  And now, even though I didn't save the entire canvas, I have a little piece of it tucked away in my scrapbooks.  

I love the little detailed pieces included in this month's kit, don't you?  I just need to stamp the date on this little tab and the layout will be ready to get tucked into this year's album.

I love to include bits of everyday life in my layouts, do you?
