I’ve hung onto the Simple Stories Emoji Love collection because I knew the emojis would be absolutely perfect for this page about my son getting his second set of braces. He was kind enough to let my husband take this crazy picture of him in the chair with the typical goggles and crazy contraption holding his mouth open (Classic!).
My son’s braces have been off for over a year now, so it’s probably time I get these photos of my son’s journey with braces documented. *giggle*
HERE WE GO AGAIN
I love the snarky words and phrases in this collection, especially to express feelings about a situation such as this. Plus! Teenagers are just naturally snarky. Hehe!
I layered the sunglasses on top of this emoji to mimic my son with the goggles in the photo. It makes me smile every time I see it!
I used up some letter stickers from my stash for the title and then used a black journaling pen to write the journaling below.
I thought the food was a perfect accent for a page all about the journey of my son’s teeth. Ha!
I hope you are having a great week! I’m back with a page using the October Craft with Heart “Homegrown” kit. (Click here to find out more information about the Craft with Heart subscription kit, or contact your Close to My Heart consultant.)
I decided to create a single page layout with my supplies to document how I transitioned when my daughter went away to college. (Butterflies always make great page accents on layouts about learning and growing … Don’t you think?!)
THIS IS ME
I used the left page of one of the two page layouts for the base of my page. The strips criss-crossing the page were already printed on the paper, I simply added stitching using my sewing machine and black thread.
The used the gold grid scalloped die cut to house my photo, and then added the gray 4×6 journaling card behind the yellow grid paper as an additional paper layer.
I then combined the flowers and butterflies from both of the layout kits onto this page in a diagonal line across the design.
The title stickers for this page were “This is Us.” I ommitted the word “us” and added the word “Me” using chipboard letters from my stash (these are some oldies-but-goodies by BasicGrey).
For additional dimension, I added layered punched flowers and buttons on top of the flower die cuts.
The page had black spray mist already printed on the background paper, but I added more mist in a light gray along the diagonal line of butterflies and flowers to tie everything together.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Would you like to see what I created?!
This collection has a bit of a spooky, vintage vibe that I thought would be perfect to scrapbook my son and his friend.
WILL DO TRICKS FOR TREATS
I fussy-cut the big spider from the cut-apart sheet and then added a few die cut spiderwebs using a metal die from my stash.
I also fussy-cut the witch from the cut-apart cards and used her to accent the title block.
I clustered several stickers here to accent the bottom right corner of the photos and add my date.
The solid black pinstripe paper made the perfect background!
This next page features my daughter in her Gypsy costume!
I used the cream pinstripe background for this page. I also pulled the Carta Bella Give Thanks & Leaves Die Set from my stash to cut several leaves as page accents.
A cluster of three circular elements in different sizes accent the left side of the page. The pumpkin circle was punched from the cut-apart sheet, while the other two circles came from the sticker sheet.
I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut the title for the page (Bootiful Day by Lilium Pixel SVG #274167). I used a stamp from my stash to create the circular journal block and then added texture to the bottom edge of the photo block with a notebook paper border punch.
The final magical touch I used black gems from my stash in a few places around the page.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing these projects!
Have a happy day!
