The best thing about my family is that they are so much fun to hang out with! I love how silly they can be together. We just have a great time being together! A few summers ago we went on a road trip. When we arrived at our destination, the kids were so happy to be there, that they jumped out of the car and started running and jumping around. I caught this fun picture of them and decided to feature it by itself on this next page using the Noel Mignon Social Butterfly kit.
MY CRAZY FUN FAMILY
Circles are a really fun way to frame out a single photo. Here I cut out a large circle from the Crate Paper Boys Rule Race Track paper.
I also had some fun with chevrons on this page. The two sections at the top of the page were hand cut from patterned papers. I accented them with a pair of Jillibean Soup Wood Sprinkles (LOVE these things!).
Do you have a silly photo that deserves to be center-stage on a layout? Well, pull it out! Print it at a nice, big 5×7 size and have fun recording that memory!
Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog today with another page using the Social Butterfly Kit. The colors of this kit are ones that I naturally gravitate towards … I just love bright happy colors! But sometimes papers with lots of color can be tough to scrapbook with because they compete with the photos. When this happens, I like to keep the background simple and add color in smaller areas around the page.
My son’s scout leader sent would send out a newsletter each month containing photos of the activities they had completed the previous month. I love having photos from events I’m not able to be there for, and I know my son will appreciate being able to look back at some of these times later in his life. :)
For this page, I used white cardstock as my background, adding droplets of spray mist in two different colors for more interest. I also inked the edges of the cardstock with the orange ink pad included in the kit. I placed all of my photos together on a single mat. I broke up the four-square grid of photos with one of the My Mind’s Eye Flair Pins topped with a die cut and accented on either side with a cork arrow sticker. Along the top of the photos I added a hand cut strip of the speech bubble patterned paper by Simple Stories. I used a couple of the bubbles to add details about my photos.
Along the bottom of the page, I added another hand cut bit of patterned paper paired with a length of the fabric tape. The smaller letter stickers of the title help to carry the color orange around the page.
Thanks for popping by today! I hope you have some fun things in store for the weekend. Me?! I think I will be doing a bit of Spring Cleaning both inside and outside of our home.
See you again soon!
Camryn has always had an affinity towards stuffed animals … her collection is ever-growing. :) So naturally, when Grandpa and Grandma took her out for her birthday lunch and shopping trip she chose ANOTHER stuffed animal toy as a new friend.
COOKIE THE DOG
I used the 3 Birds Graceful Season Paper collection to scrapbook this page along with the 3D Embellishment Kit and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Set. Inside the 12 x 12 paper pad are a variety of darling papers … one of them was a large chevron print in multiple colors. I cut the blue chevron from each sheet (there are 2 of each design), and decided to overlap them in opposite directions to create a frame for my photo grouping. I really like how it turned out!
the smaller photos is framed with a stamp frame from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil set with a 3D floral sticker accenting the corner. I also added a couple more pennant shapes stickers below and placed my title across the top.
On the left side of the page, I handcut the large floral element from another sheet of the 12 x 12 patterned papers. I layered a photo on top and then layered together more of the 3D Embellishment stickers and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil stickers to create the circular accent.
These sweet papers have stolen my heart. If you’d like to see more projects using this collection, be sure to stop by the 3 Birds Blog!
Today I have a new project up on the BasicGrey blog using the Herbs & Honey collection. I know that sometimes people shy away from purchasing a themed collection like this, but rest assured you will find plenty of reasons to use these cute papers! (Wouldn’t they make an adorable Recipe Album?)
Infact, I used these garden-inspired products with photos of my daughter in a Cowgirl costume. See?! Just use them for what you want. The colors and textures are the most important thing!
DADDY DAUGHTER DATE
For my assignment, I was challenged to find an image on Pinterest and use them along with the Herbs & Honey Bottlecap Stickers (arent’ they cute?!). I have always been inspired by wedding cakes, and was drawn to this quilted diamond patterned cake with the studs adorning the points of each of the diamonds and thought it would be a really fun idea to use with the tiny bottlecaps.

I used the my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutter to cut several diamond shapes from the Herbs & Honey 6 x 6 paper pad and then arranged them in a random order on my background. Then, to mimick the studs, I placed the small bottlecap stickers on each point. LOVE!
I created the title by layering together two colors of the tiny Alphabet Stickers (love that you get so many colors on one sheet), and paired them with the Kraft with White Print Chipboard Alphabet Letters. My vertical photo is adhered to one of the Printed Kraft Bags. My journaling is added to one of the Snippets and accented with an Element Sticker and a couple more Bottlecap Stickers.
Finally, I added a die cut tab to the top of my vertical photo and a couple of the transparency borders underneath my title (both from the Die Cuts & Transparencies pack).
Sadly, this is my last page for the BasicGrey Design Team. I have LOVED working with their collections and being a part of such a talented team for the past two years. I will miss them, and will always be a fan of their amazing collections. Blowing kisses their way! Thank you for the fun ride!
Have a great day!
