Close to My Heart: Last Day

Happy Friday! I’ve been working with the February Craft with Heart kit by Close to My Heart.

The thing I love most about these kits is that the designs are versatile enough to work with just about any photo configuration. Even though the photos on the sample page were different than what I was working with, I was able to adjust the design to work for me.

Check out the video below to see how I did it!

Close to My Heart: Hooray for Today

Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another video featuring the second layout I created using the Close to My Heart January 2019 Kits.

Each monthly kit includes two double-page layouts with the instructions, stickers, die cuts, and sheet protectors to complete those layouts. I used most of the stickers and die cuts on the layout I posted on Monday. So, for today’s page I decided to create my own quilled flower embellishments using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts Dies. Watch the video to see how!

HOORAY FOR TODAY

I also used the title as inspiration for all of the circles across the top of the page — I wanted it to feel like a party! Can  you see where I added stamping, embossing, and dimensional dots, as well?!

Happy Friday to all of you! My friends at ScrapbookingStore.com contacted me recently and asked me to create a layout using their September 2018 scrapbook kit. This kit features the Beautiful Life collection by Echo Park Paper and was one I haven’t played with before. I loved the bright colors and actually ended up creating three layouts with this kit.

Now for my layouts … This first one is my favorite!

…………………………………………………………………….

TODAY LET’S TRY RED

I used white cardstock from my stash for the base of each of these layouts. For this one, I started with a band of the yellow polka dot paper across the top and then layered two rows of tickets (fussy-cut from a patterned paper) along the seam.

Lately, I’m really loving creating stacked layer photo mats on my pages. All of the different patterns and colors peeking out here-and-there makes me so happy.

Add in some flowers and I’m a happy-scrappy girl!

For the title, I used the gold Thickers from the Add-On. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the letters for the word “RED” and then popped them up with foam squares.

I then added the journaling in a column below the photos and accented the bottom of the page with a thin strip of striped patterned paper and some of the stickers.

Next, I used this kit to scrapbook a few of my daughter’s graduation memories from a couple years ago.

CLASS OF 2016

I began this page by stacking together several of the papers in rows to create a colorful backdrop for my two photos.

I then accented the photos with fussy-cut doilies, 3×4 journaling Cards, and several stickers. Again, flowers and butterflies peek out in a few places adding lots of character.

I used the gold thickers again for the title on this page. I used my Cameo to cut out the “of” from navy blue cardstock from my stash.

A couple of fussy-cut rulers anchor the photos at the bottom and top of the page are a subtle nod to the school theme.

CONGRATS!

I couldn’t resist creating a page with all of the banner stickers from the sticker sheet. They were perfect for this page with the photographs I took of the decorations we put up in our kitchen for my daughter on the day of her high school graduation.

I used the smaller heart and flower stickers popped up on foam squares to add dimension to the banner.

The flowers were all fussy-cut from another patterned paper. I used Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Drops to add dimensional flower centers to a few of them.

Echo Park Paper: Back to School

I love the fall and everything that goes with it … including Back to School! The minute the notebooks and crayons hit the store shelves I get giddy! In addition to collecting office supplies this time of year, I also love to stock up on school-themed scrapbook supplies like the new Echo Park Paper Back to School collection! Swoon!

I have school albums for each of my kids with a tabbed section for each grade. At the beginning of the section I always place a page featuring the pictures we take on the first day of school.

I grouped the close-up shots for this page on a block of black and white composition book patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad. A strip featuring lots of school words from the Border Strips paper runs down the left side of the page.

I used a notebook patterned card from my stash for the journaling and then grouped all of the school supplies stickers at the bottom. Of course I had to add a paper clip!

I cut the title out on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the Ebony Black Felt Cardstock. I love how dark the black of this cardstock is. It makes such crisp, beautiful images on a page. The title is backed with a large circle cut using a wood pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.

I used the Prize Ribbon Die Set, to add the grade level to the bottom right corner of the larger photo. I layered together two of each of the pinked circles and ribbon tails for more dimension and interest. I used the star from the die set to add bright, yellow stars around the page.
