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!
Here are more pictures from our same family getaway to Midway, Utah that I have been sharing with you this past week. I love using a kit to scrap a bunch of pages that will go all together in my album. The pages all have a slightly different feeling to them, yet they all coordinate, which is really nice.
Again, I am working on using up my October 2012 Noel Mignon Union Square kit. I love blocked page designs and used one here with these photos. The embellishment clusters breaking out of the lines of the box and the journal block tacked onto the bottom, keep this page from feeling too linear.
Yesterday, I showed you a page using these Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky envelopes, and I’ve layered more of them together on this page. I need to pick these up in more collections! They have been a lot of fun to work with. I cut them in half to get even more mileage out of them. On this page, I used the top half of the green polka dot envelope. (You can see the bottom of this same envelope used on yesterday’s page.)
And here’s a closer look at the colorful floral cluster at the bottom of the page. I cut out the yellow flower and leaves from a sheet of Fancy Pants Designs patterned paper and then added a couple of My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste chipboard flowers and brads.
Thanks for coming by! Tomorrow I’ll be back with a page featuring a cute digital cut of a granny in a rocking chair.
I’m back with another page using the Noel Mignon October 2013 Union Square Kit. I love that this kit came with two of the Fancy Pants Designs patterned envelopes, but I just HAD to purchase extras. They are so cute! I have cut some of them in half and used them on two separate pages (I think I’ll use pinking shears along the top of the bottom portion and tuck a journal card in it on another page … atleast that’s the plan. ) Here, I layered three of the envelopes together as a fun element on my page.
The gold polka dot tape along the top of the page, is an exclusive roll of wide washi tape that came in my October Oh Deer Me kit that I just subbed to. I’m really enjoying this kit so far! Lots of fun goodies to incorporate in with my Noel Mignon kits and stash.
I spritzed the background with a bit of Navy Heidi Swapp Spray (that came with my Noel Mignon Nov. 2013 Gather Together kit). The letter stickers and journal block sticker are from the BasicGrey Persimmon collection.
The sunflowers were cut from a Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky patterned paper that came in the kit. I added a couple of My Mind’s Eye glazed brads to the flower centers (also from the kit) for a bit more dimension.
Check back tomorrow to see my scrapbook page containing the other half of the green Fancy Pants envelope. Hehe!
See you then!
I’ve been working through my Noel Mignon Union Square kit some more and have four more pages to share with you over the next few days using this kit. This first page is quite boyish … I went with a navy, gold, mustard yellow, and gray color palette and had fun adding the Jenni Bowlin Border rubons around the edge of my page again (a twist on what I did on a page from last week).
THAT DARN HAT
These were just a few quick snapshots I took of my son on a getaway. He actually doesn’t care for these photos of himself, but he was in such a corny mood this day that I decided to scrap them anyway, just to remember a fun part of his personality.
The journaling tells about how “spunky” my son feels when he wears this hat … which led him to break out into an impromptu dance session outside of a café in front of about 2 dozen people. He has quite the dance moves … you really are missing out. But more importantly, I love his fun nature, confidence, and ability to make people smile by goofing around.
I placed the Pink Paislee chipboard piece behind my photos and added an assortment of brads, etc. to the centers of several of them.
Other Supplies: BasicGrey Persimmon Alphabet Stickers, Anna Griffin Journal Card (old) from my stash
Thanks for taking a look! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
