This post to share my kit layouts using the April kit is WAY overdue. But here they are nonetheless. :) I used a lot of the digi options this month. From the diamond template for the Longwood Gardens page to the Stamp Brushes made into cut files (You Float My Boat!)…there are so many options for using these digital elements and they are really a great value. If you missed out on an add on and stamp you really wanted, give the digital stamp brush a try. :)
I think this may be my new addiction! :) Even my 7 year old daughter is enjoying practicing her cursive handwriting with this app!
I’m finally getting around to sharing my pages for the month of January. I’ve been meaning to post but keep getting sidetracked. :) Can you relate at all? (And by the way, speaking of sidetracked… if you are still hoping to play along with my challenge in the post below…I’m keeping it open a little longer, so there’s still time!) I’ve talked before about how I decided to attack Project Life on a monthly basis rather than a weekly one. It really works so much better for me and I still feel like I’m documenting little things, moments, and life that wouldn’t necessarily end up on a scrapbooking layout but on a smaller, less daunting scale. Here’s what I did for January:
I like using the Design A page protectors as my base pages and then use other inserts that are smaller/shorter to add more space in between. This month I chose to cut down a Design F (in half basically). I love that I got more 3×4 spots to use this way! Here’s the left side:
I cut “January” with my Silhouette (I think it’s the Contribute font). The rest of the inserts are either from Geralyn’s In a Creative Bubble shop, the Studio Calico PL kits, Clementine kit from Becky Higgins or the free month printables from FindingNana (my January card printed small for some reason – I think I printed from “preview” instead of Photoshop…that’s why it’s smaller than 3×4!) Here’s the right side with the insert over it.
And then the insert flipped over and you can see the back of it and the rest of the Design A beneath.
I like to have more photos than fillers, journaling or text on the photos, and then simple embellishments. I’m still sort of finding my groove with it, but I love the first month! Only 11 more to go! :)
This kit is just so beautiful! And I love that a couple of the add ons are more boy-friendly. :) I got the main kit, Neverland, and the Tink and Hook add ons. I also used my Silhouette quite a bit, the Neverland Printables, Cut Files, and Digital Brushes, Mister Huey’s Opaque White, Taxi, Gold, and More Vellum.
This first one is using the main kit only…
I cut out some of the triangles for a fun design on this layout.
I really liked the circle cut files and decided to make a grid with them for a quick layout design.
Just a reminder that subscribers can shop for these kits NOW at presale. But if you’re not a subscriber, they won’t be available for sale until midnight tonight. :) Happy shopping!
I’ve only got a few minutes to post today. We’re on the last day of a week where there were more days off than days in school. I’ve promised my kiddos an at home movie afternoon complete with a concession stand and a ticket collector…so they are anxious for me to get off the computer! Here are my pages using Front Row! You can read my comments on how I created them and what products I used in my gallery here. There’s also a bunch of my favorite products listed on that page as well! Fun new feature at SC.
Don’t forget about Bright Ideas….last day to register is Jan. 31st!!! :)
I just love CHA time! New product, fresh color combos and designs… it’s easy to feel inspired! Studio Calico release 3 collections this show: Sundrifter, Snippets, and Here & There. I created 3 layouts for their show booth…the first two use the colorful Here & There and the last one uses the lovely Sundrifter. They’ll be arriving in the SC shop very very soon! Use the “notify me” button so you don’t miss out.
I think Yearbook is one of those classic collections that you don’t tire of. And with back to school photos taken each year… it’s a great line to keep in your stash! I pulled it out to play with today and love how easily it all works together. I used a couple pages from the Yearbook Handbook in place of traditional patterned paper for a fun twist. The stitched pockets are awesome for holding photos and the little number paper clips are so cute to designate which grades the kids are in this year.
I am a 12×12 scrapper, but I have to say… doing an 8.5×11 page every once in a while is so fun! Here’s my impromtu dare to you…scrap a page in the next few days that is opposite the size you normally scrap. Switch it up! Link up here when you’re finished… I’d love to see what you came up with! :)
