Noel Mignon: Be Brave & Dream

janaeubank_noelmignon_bebrave2

Hello again! Today I am sharing my last Noel Mignon “Buttons & Bows” September page with you … but have you seen the October Kits?!!! SWOON!!! I can’t wait to dig into my “Falloween” kits. Sigh. Fall is so fun!

Okay, so here we go … I don’t want to get ahead of myself, because really, I think this is one of my favorite pages I created this month using Buttons & Bows.🙂

BE BRAVE & DREAM

There is just something so fun and satisfying about a monochromatic page with POPS of color and lots of fussy-cut flowers combined with quirky photos! This one was so much fun to make!

The flowers were all cut from the Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” #02 paper. I love that paper! I wasn’t a fan of the mauve background (can’t get past the 80s vibe of that mauve!) but I made my way around it by cutting out all those flowers.🙂

At the top of the page, I layered a strip of Pink Paislee #18 paper (actually the branding strip), along with the Millie & June washi tape and Maya Road lace trim from the Classic Kit.

I fussy-cut the “BRAVE” word from the #06 paper, and made it part of my longer title. More fussy-cut flowers accent this part.

The reason I chose this title is explained in my journaling … I love that my kids are not afraid to have fun with their imaginations and play dress-up no matter what age they are!

The bottom of the page is anchored with a strip of the Pink Paislee #06 paper. And then each cluster on this page gets accented with 1 or 2 of those adorable acrylic heart embellishments (also by Pink Paislee). The bits of gold around the page add just the perfect amount of shine!

I hope you enjoyed this layout. Have you tried fussy-cutting on a project lately? It’s definitely one of my very favorite techniques!

Much love,

Noel Mignon: So Fab!

janaeubank_noelmignon_sofab2

Happy Friday, scrappy souls! I’m back with another page using the Noel Mignon September 2016 “Buttons & Bows” Classic Kit mixed with some elements from the “Buttons & Bows” Daily Diary kit. Oh, my gosh! I have LOVED playing with this kit … who am I kidding? … I love every kit that Noel Mignon puts out. Ha!

Today’s page features a lot of elements from one of my favorite manufacturers, Simple Stories!

SO FAB

Even though I still have one more page with this kit to share with you next week, this is actually the last page I created with the kit. I pulled in all the Simple Stories products I had left and then paired them with the scraps I had left.

(Sidenote: The pics on this page are blurry iPhone pics, … so some of the detail shots MAY look out-of-focus, but it actually the poor quality photos ON the page. Ha!)

I was running low on full sheets of patterned papers, so I actually ended up pulling in a few sheets of paper from my stash to create these layered circles. The pink sheet is from a past Noel Mignon kit, the heart dot paper is from the Buttons & Bows Daily Diary kit, and the yellow sheet is actually a REALLY OLD sheet from American Crafts (the Hello Sunshine collection).

The title was created by cutting out the letters out of one of the Simple Stories journaling cards from the Buttons & Bows Daily Diary kit. I’ve actually done that on a few other pages lately … I LOVE the mixed color letters! They just end up looking so fun and fresh!

In the right corner of the photo I added a couple of Simple Stories “Posh” clips, and a tag die cut from the same collection. I wanted another tag, so I punched one from the patterned side of one of the journaling cards.

The journal block and flower cluster were also fussy-cut from journaling cards. The pencil jar and envelope are die cuts, the bird and smaller flower cluster come from the chipboard sticker sheet, and the foiled hearts were cut from the “Laugh Lots” patterned paper (Classic Kit).

Finally! … a suede bow and dimensional heart from the Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” collection to cap off this little cluster. Too cute!

Wishing you a wonderful and creative weekend!

Noel Mignon: Happy 10th Birthday

janaeubank_noelmignon_happybday2

Hello! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog for another design team challenge today … this week we are using the word MAGICAL as inspiration for our projects. I took the opportunity to scrapbook one of my daughter’s birthdays, because birthdays always felt magical and special to ME when I was a girl.🙂

HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY

I fell in love with the colorful Thickers in the Buttons & Bows Classic kit this month and really wanted to make them the star on this page. I sliced off the pink section of the Simple Stories “Live Simply” color-blocked paper and used it as a home for my larger title.

I placed the Maya Road lace trim along the edge of the title block to add a feminine touch. The gold puffy Fancy Pants Millie & June stickers add a fun bit of shimmer!

The lower portion of my page is dedicated to the photos. I placed my trio of shots on different colors of cardstock that coordinate with the colorful title above.

Next, I treated each photo as it’s own little vignette; embellishing each one and achoring the journaling cards to them.

How cute is that poodle sticker by Fancy Pants Designs?! And I adore that suede bow sticker from Pink Paislee!❤❤❤

This was a different look for me this time, but I had a lot of fun creating it all the same. I hope it helped to inspire you to scrap the “magical” moments in your life!

Have a great day!

Noel Mignon: Hey Sunshine

janaeubank_noelmignon_heysunshine2

I’ve been plowing through my Noel Mignon Buttons & Bows Classic and Daily Diary kit the past week … oh, my goodness! How I love these sweet papers and colors! This week I’ll share three of those pages with you and then I’ll share my last page on the 28th before I dig into October’s kits. Here’s what I have for you today!

HEY SUNSHINE

I love these photos of my youngest daughter playing with her dolls from a couple years ago. Sadly, we are transitioning out of that phase and so these photos are even more precious to me. Sure! They still love their toys now-and-then, but they aren’t set up in little vignettes around the house like they used to be. (I always enjoyed seeing how their creativity shined in those little vignettes.🙂 )

For the background of this page, I layered up the kraft and geyser cardstock along with the ombre watercolor paper from Pink Paislee. I love the coral hues in that sheet. The Prima flowers look divine against the gradation of color! I placed the lighter large flower on the left side against the darker wash of the pattern; and the darker large flower on the right side on top of the lighter end. Love how they contrast against that background! The gray leaves I added were fussy-cut from the floral #02 Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” paper. (Swoon!)

I also love the way the colors of the floral pattern in the bow and flair button tie everything together on this page.

I don’t know why … but it has taken me a long time to warm up to the watercolor look in scrapbook products. I can truly say now that I am in love with it! I like to mix them up with more graphic patterns; like the triangle and scattered dot paper you see on this page.

The Queen & Co. green iridescent dots were such a fun finishing touch on this page. I love the way they add a bit of shimmer and shine, along with the beaded centers of the Prima flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my project today!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
