My Crew

Hey everyone, Amy here to share a layout I created using the October kit and add on.  I may have already scrapbooked this picture, but it's one of my favorites and it was perfect for the stickers in the add on. Here's my layout.

Here are some closeups of all the fun bits.

It was such a fun kit and the embellishments are definitely some of my favorites I've used!

Make sure to check out all the other fabulous work from the design team using this great kit.

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!

Gonna Play the Trumpet

Posted on September 29, 2015 by

Ever have one of those weeks where everything happens at once?  Well, during the beginning of the week my boy found out he would be getting braces.  Then he signed up to play the trumpet during instrument signups at open house at the school.  
Because the photo I captured was dark, I turned it to black and white and then lightened it.  I believe in scrapping the memories we make.  Sometimes, that includes photos that may not be perfect.  Turning it B&W toned it down and helped coordinate with the page and embellishments I had in mind.
Wasn't this months kit fun?  Wait until you see the next one:o)

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 friends! It's Jennifer and today I'm sharing a layout I created using the Add-On Embellishment Kit for September.  I did snag a few small pieces of paper from the Main kit to fill in but it's 95% the Add-Ons!
I love these fun multi patterned Thickers from the Crate Paper Wonder collection!  They add a lot of color to your page!
These fun paper clips from Heidi Swapp are included in the Add On Kit as well! Here I paired one with a cute ephemera from Wonder.  
I am a big fan of chipboard frames and I love using them on my layouts!  I adhered this cute music note frame  from Simple Stories' So Fancy over a Wonder die cut. 
More ephemera loveliness from Crate Paper! I layered a few pieces as well as added another Heidi Swapp paper clip!  You can also spy tiny gold sequins (they are self adhesive!) and matching enamel dots; both are from the Wonder collection. 
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I hope this inspires you to create a layout using mainly embellishments! Have a wonderful day!
