Oh, my! Just look at those cute little faces of my kids from 9 years ago! I can’t believe how grown up they are now. I’m feeling nostalgic this week as I send my oldest off to college, and my son off to high school. Where has all the time gone?!
CUTEST KIDS ON THE BLOCK
I created this page using the goodies from the Noel Mignon Vintage Charm Kits.
At the top of the page, I placed a couple of strips of the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow papers, accented with some fun zig-zag stitching, and a little cluster that includes some punched hearts.
The house paper was the inspiration for my page title … Yes, I really do believe I have the cutest kids on the block! 😀
The sun and cloud were actually cut from one of the Simple Stories 4×6 journal cards included in the Vintage Charm Daily Diary kit.
I made my own journal card using patterned paper scraps. I zig-zag stitched the two pieces together and then added some stickers from the WRMK Honey I’m Home collection.
The Simple Stories Bloom & Grow cards on this pocket page spread just make me smile. I love how happy and cheerful the designs are in the Simple Stories collections … this company will forever be a favorite of mine!
I outlined a couple of the 3×4 journal cards to give them more definition. The dark photos were overpowering them … so the dark outline helps them to stay balanced.
Kraft flowers, puffy hearts, and shiny, gold epoxy stickers add a special touch to these cards!
Thanks for coming by today! I hope you have a great week!
There are so many fun frame elements included in the Noel Mignon kits this month. This week we are challenging ourselves to make them the focus of our page designs.
LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH YOU
I chose to focus on the epoxy frames from the PinkFresh Studio sticker sheet included in the Vintage Charm Classic Kit.
But first, I used the Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mist and the polka dot stencil included in the kit to create the page background. I love those soft gold dots peeking through … so pretty!
Next, I added the photos, anchored by several patterned paper strips layered together in an “L” shape. I added the thick scallop glitter tape to the bottom horizontal line to help give some visual weight to the bottom of the page.
Where the patterned paper strips crossed, I created this fun little cluster of elements using the rosette Maggie Holmes stickers, WRMK floral stickers, and a printed wood veneer frame (also by WRMK). I also handcut a couple of butterflies from the Crate Paper patterned paper.
To the left of the photos, I scattered and layered the square epoxy frames. I created a long title that overlapped one of the frames, and then accented the remaining frames with phrase sitckers, and a blue butterfly flair.
I really LOVE how this one came together!
