I started this page last month at a friend’s house and forgot about it. I pulled it out this weekend to add the final touches with items from my stash.
I love this picture of my Camryn. She has a collection of “hipster” sunglasses that she likes to wear. Really, they are just sunglasses that she has poked the lenses out of, but I love that she likes to wear them and add other accessories, like Minnie Mouse ears, to create cute outfits. Do you remember those days of putting something fun or silly on, and wearing it proudly?! I love that about this age and stage, and sad that we don’t embrace that confidence more as adults. 🙂 We should always walk with confidence and love who we are. Don’t you agree?
The base of this page is my LAST sheet of grid paper by Scenic Route that I have had in my stash forever. If you remember Scenic Route, you are probably sentimental about their papers like I am. 🙂
The rest of the patterned and solid papers come from the gorgeous Felicity Jane Emeline collection.
The tab, circle heart and star, “These Moments” phrase sticker, and “Happy” banner are also from the Felicity Jane Emeline kit.
I used some gold foil stickers by Crate Paper for the title. I stitched through the letters because the adhesive on these isn’t that great and I didn’t want them falling off in my book … plus, stitching looks cute, right?!!
The house die cut is from a Project Life die cut pack by American Crafts. I surrounded the title and this cute little house with puffy stickers by Seven Paper. That darling epoxy arrow is an older item from Freckled Fawn. So cute!
I added more stitching around the photo and the edge of the paper and then added some Teresa Collins Designs photo corners.

I love floral papers and the Carta Bella Flora No. 1 collection
is full of them! I especially love it when the flower pattern is large enough to allow me to fussy-cut individual flowers to use as accents on my page … and that is exactly what I have done on my project today for the Echo Park Paper Blog
The flowers of the Petunia Patch Bundle paper
reminded me of all of the tropical flowers we enjoyed on our vacation to Maui last year. I thought they would be the perfect touch to add to this page of our family’s trip to a beach.
I used detail scissors to cut out several flowers and then tucked them in sprays behind my photos. I love the way the colors pop against the green of the Lily Meadow Spray background paper.

Catchy title for a page, no?! Ha ha! In third grade my daughter did a school report about Eleanor Roosevelt. As part of their learning, the class got to make marionette puppets of the person they were studying. At the end of the year they put on a presentation for the parents. They did a great job!
I used mostly American Crafts Oh, Happy Life papers on this page, mixing in a few oldies from My Mind’s Eye (yellow chevron) and another American Crafts paper (red polka dots from Soho Garden — if I’m remembering right). When purging papers from my stash, I hardly ever get rid of basic patterns like chevrons and polka dots … a polka dot is a polka dot, right? These kinds of patters ALWAYS mix in with other collections really well.
For page accents, I used an old Crate Paper Chipboard floral sticker, some red chipboard labels by American Crafts, and some floral die cuts from the Pebbles Homegrown collection. They all play really nicely together!
I typed my journaling on the computer, printed it out on white cardstock and adhered it right to the chipboard labels.
