Hello friends! Jennifer on the blog today to share my last layout using the September Main and Add On Kits!  This page is full of Simple Stories' So Fancy goodies such as the chipboard frames and self adhesive brads!  I created a sort of grid layout using patterns from So Fancy as well as Crate Paper's Wonder collection.
I adhered this multi-colored chipboard frame from So Fancy around the subject in my photo (my cute niece riding her bike without training wheels!).  :)  This is a great way to focus on your main picture....especially if you have a busy page!
I used another chipboard frame on top of a cute pattern from Wonder as well as added one of the Wonder Chipboard Thickers.  
Showing some of the Wonder Ephemera and coordinating stickers that I stitched to two of the patterns from Crate Paper. 
I adhered more patterned papers and accented with Wonder cardstock stickers as well as a cute brad from Simple Stories.  
Thank you for stopping by!  Check back tomorrow to the shop to get your hands on September and October kits! Have a great day!

a little sand and sun

Posted on September 28, 2015 by

Good morning!  Brenda here with my last layout with this months main scrapbook kit.  I think this one was my absolute favorite.  The Crate "Bright" paper was perfect for cutting out my title.  Honestly, the first time I saw that paper I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.

Don't you just love those gold alphas, too? They are so fun and add the right amount of funky to the page.  Basically they fit my little girl to a "t".  


Thank you for stopping by to have a look!  Hope you have a fantabulous day.

Little notebook

Posted on September 25, 2015 by

Hello, It’s Veera. Today I want to show you a little notebook I made with Paper Camellia’s September Main Scrapbook kit. That gold striped speciality paper from Crate Paper was perfect for making a notebook cover! The paper was sturdy enough to hold all the other papers together.

I decorated the cover with the alpha thickers and a cluster of stickers. I used a bit of extra glue for adhering. This way I can make sure that the embellishments will stay in place.

For the inside pages I used mainly copy paper and some pattern papers  from the kit. As the purpose of this book is really to be a notebook I didn’t decorate the inside pages.

Have you tried making notebooks?

For 18 years, (this November) I will be married to this man. We dated, if you will, for 4 years before that. Sometimes, it doesn't seem that long. I still feel too young to married almost 20 years.
Together, we have seen and done a lot of fun and amazing things. We have traveled with the military, and traveled on vacations. We are raising a beautiful boy with a big heart and have had several pets til the end. When I say 18 years, that seems like forever, but when I look back, it doesn't seem that long at all.
This photo was taken at the batting cages here locally. The sun shinning in the back is pretty cool but HE thinks its a halo! If it were, then it would be over MY head, not his!

Here is what I created with the September Paper Camellia Scrapbooking Main Kit.
When I saw the cork numbers, this is what popped in my head! Well, the idea with the numbers anyway. The rest built from there. The majority of this layout is created with Crate Paper Wonder and the brads are from Simple Stories.
PS - the date stamp you see, that is from Studio Calico and it is NOT included in your main scrapbooking kit. It is just a super cool date punch that I just bought!

Hello friends! Jennifer here with another layout I created using September's Main and Add On kits!  I love all of the Crate Paper goodies from the Wonder collection as well as pieces from My Mind's Eye and Simple Stories.  The papers have a girly feel to them but are great for pretty much any theme! 
I used one of the wooden veneer words from Crate Paper's Wonder for my title. I layered papers from Wonder as well as My Mind's Eye's On Trend.  
I am in love with the felt hearts that are included in the Wonder Ephemera pack!  I stapled one to the side of my photo as well as added a die cut flower and a cute sentiment sticker.  
More layering of some of the lovely papers! I added this cute paper clip pennant from the Add On Kit. You can also spy coordinating enamel dots that are from the Wonder collection.  
For the bottom half of my page, I used a cut file from the Silhouette shop. I added circles from different patterns as well as added brads from Simple Stories and more enamel dots. I also love the mini gold sequins!  
Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the shop starting October first to see these and October's Kits!

Cardstock Starting Point

Posted on September 18, 2015 by

Hello there! Elizabeth here to share my September projects with you. This month I found myself grabbing a sheet on plain white cardstock for every page. It serves as a great starting point and opens up the design possibilities. Mixing and matching lovely papers from the kits is one of the best parts of the process, in my opinion. Here's what I came up with...

Thanks for letting me share my work. Post up in the gallery with your pages and I'll take a peek at what you've been making. You all inspire me!

Hello, It’s Veera. Today I want to show you a layout where I used a lot of the word stickers and die cut phrases as my main embellishments.

I started this layout by adhering the photo and the ”sweet” sticker to the white cardstock. At that point I didn’t have a specific idea how this layout will turnout. I added some paper strips from pattern paper to fill some of the empty space. I lined all the word stickers and die cut phrases to emphasizes the horizontal lines of the paper strips.

Have you used multiple word stickers in one layout?
