 I was procrastinating on the last of the packing.  Can you tell?  It was hard to not just drop everything and play with the kids and take photos of things I wanted to remember.  This was our first home.  The only home our kids had known.  The floor with its dings and stains.  The funky front windows.  The bed in my room where Kaitlyn would hang out and play while I worked.  Of course we had to make one more tent in the living room and gather one more bunch of weeds.  I think the impending move was catching up to Kaitlyn.  She had a rough day this week.  How better to feel better than to be silly.  

I love how the bold colors and patterns balance so well with the softer tones in some of the cards here.  It has a nice flow coming down the page from top to bottom.  The "receipt" card from the Everyday Life kit is my favorite card from the whole kit.  I had been hording it till I got to this page.

Thank you for stopping to see my pages.  Here is to a new month and new memories to scrap!

Good times & sunshine + process video

Hi there, it’s Veera here today to share a new layout and a process video with you. I loved the gold foam stickers that were in the May main scrapbook kit but for this layout I wanted to change the color of these stickers.

In this video you can see how this layout came together. If the embedded video doesn’t work you can find it from this link: https://youtu.be/EaLqJQNYE_0

I used white gesso and turquoise acrylic paint to paint the stickers. I left the painted stickers to air dry as the heat tool and foam stickers don’t go so well together.

 

Have you modified stickers with paint? I hope you liked the video and my layout!

Beautiful right now

Hi, It’s Veera here today to share a layout I made using the May main scrapbook kit. I have had this picture of blooming orchids on my table and the beautiful pink papers from Elle’s Studio were perfect for this photo. And you can’t go wrong by adding a touch of gold to the mix!

By choosing the pink papers I was able to emphasize the pink in the picture too. I like to try different colors and patterns to find the best suited option for the picture.

The wood veneers from Elle’s Studio and gold foam stickers from Amy Tangerine were perfect embellishments for this layout!

Did you get your May kits already? There are still kits left in the shop so make sure you grab yours if you haven’t already!

March 2015 | Pocket Pages

Posted on May 08, 2015 by

Hello friends!  Today I have a pretty pink pocket page for you.  This is from about a week before we moved when we were still in New Mexico.  I was feeling a bit down so I prettied myself up a bit, bought some pink flowers and played with my kiddos.  I was supposed to be finishing up the packing and getting ready to move but I just couldn't.  Although this move was exciting and we were all looking forward to it, it was hard.  Sometimes you just need a little pink and a little pretty to get through.

the details:

I absolutely loved all the little bits and pieces in this months Everyday Life and details add on kits.  Elle's Cienna bits and pieces and stickers really made this page come together quickly.  A couple pretty cards and a few layers is all it needed to make the photos shine.  I am going to be really glad for this memory recorded when my children are older.  Especially since it appears we will have at least one more move ahead of us.  Here's to adventure and new things, even if they do make us sad for a moment.
