Including today’s page, I have created EIGHT pages with the October 2013 Noel Mignon Union Square kit! Woohoo! I actually still have three full sheets of 12×12 patterned paper that I haven’t cut into yet, along with all my scraps and embellishments, but I think I’m going to combine these with the November 2013 Gather Together kit and start working on some projects with that one.
I just LOVED this cute little granny cut by Lettering Delights (from the Knit Socks set) and am so happy I found a place for her on this page of my girls trying out a couple of rocking chairs. The hexagon paper by Fancy Pants Designs compliments her perfectly, don’t ya think?! I also used the top half of another one of the Fancy Pants Designs patterned envelopes on this page.
And how cute are those dimensional flower stickers in the centers of the letter “o”. This page was such a fun one to create!
Thanks for coming by!
It’s probably no secret by now that I love to die cut on my pages. This cute little tourist bird is a cut file set called Spring Break by Lettering Delights. I thought he would make the perfect companion for these pictures from our cruise vacation last year.
I used a sketch by Becky Fleck from the Fall 2013 Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine (pg. 30) as the genesis for this page. The great thing about this magazine is that it is FREE to view/download online. How cool is that? If you haven’t yet, be sure to check it out HERE.
All of the papers come from the September 2013 5th & Main kit by Cocoa Daisy and most of the embellishments are from the Oh Deer Me November kit.
I hope you have a great weekend and are able to sneak in a bit of crafting.
See you again soon!
As a 12×12 scrapbooker, it took me awhile to see the value of the 6×6 paper pad that so many paper companies offer along with their collections, but now I LOVE them! I love mixing larger patterns from the 12 x 12 collection (for example, the large red chevron print on this page), with the smaller scale prints from the coordinating 6×6 paper pad (the rest of the papers used on this page).
Again, this page was inspired by a shape I saw in an interior design magazine. Home décor really inspires me … it always has. :) I think my husband is thankful I love scrapbooking so much, because if I didn’t, I might be trying out all the fun things I see on larger surfaces … like the walls in our home. Hehe! It’s nice to have a 12″ surface to experiment on.
My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste “Presh” Collection: Details paper, Awed paper, 6×6 paper pad, Beautiful 2×6 Journal Card, Tiny Word Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Enamel Shapes, Decorative Buttons, Decorative Stamps
I used the My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Presh collection for this page. The 2×6 journal card was the perfect title. I could have used the open white rectangle for the journaling, but opted to add three punched and layered butterflies instead to carry the pink around the page in a visual triangle.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away? We will be eating dinner at my in-laws house with 35+ people. Should be lots of fun!
Fall is my favorite season. We’ve been lucky to be have enjoyed a longer-than-usual fall season here in Utah … but it has finally taken a stormy turn and I’m afraid that our Fall ship has sailed. Oh, well. Atleast I can still enjoy the colors of the season with my scrappy products!
FALL IS HERE
My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Charm Collection: Spin Paper, Trend Paper, Relaxed Paper, Shine Paper, Route Paper, Sweet 4×6 Journal Card, Bits & Pieces (Layered Stickers), Tiny Word Stickers, 5×7 Sticker Sheet, Enamel Dots, Decorative Buttons, Chipboard Stickers
The title was cut in two layers using a word art cut file by Lori Whitlock and my Silhouette Cameo machine. I embossed it using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and my Cuttlebug machine. The middle section is backed with a bit of orange cardstock and I added the chipboard heart and button over the letter “A.” The “How Sweet It Is” banner phrase was cut out from the MME Sweet 4×6 Journal Card.
I handcut out a zig zag from the Shine paper for a bit more texture at the bottom and then added the layered sticker flowers to the bottom corner of my photo. I’m falling in love with the Tiny Word Stickers lately! They are the perfect little accent to add to other embellishments.
Have a great week!
