I’m not sure if it is the beginning of a new school year, but I have been itching to play with some paper collections I purchased awhile ago and haven’t made the time to use. I decided to put together some homemade kits with those products and work on creating at least two projects with them to share with you throughout the end of the year. My stash needs some love!
This week the kit I put together has lots of Shimelle Go Now Go. I was able to create four projects (Yay, Me!!!) with this kit and wanted to share them with you today and tomorrow.
First up … a two-page layout!
CATCH & RELEASE
I was in the mood to play with some cute cut files by Lettering Delights on this one. So that is what I did. The images featured on this page are from the “Happy Trails Too” set.
**SIDENOTE: I really struggled to get the colors just right on these pictures … so I hope you’ll bear with me!
Added into the mix are some older Pebbles stickers … I believe these ones were from the Walnut Grove collection.
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 Machine to cut out the “Catch” letters (Font: Bebas Neue) and the Ampersand (“St. Patrick’s Day Set” by Echo Park Paper; Design #122732 in the Silhouette Design Store).
Those cute chipboard letter stickers are an older set from Bella Blvd.
It’s been awhile since I have played with my beloved embossing folders, so I used one here to add pattern to the light green pine tree.
The other side of the layout features this chubby bear; fishing for his dinner! Haha!

Next up, is a single page layout featuring some vacation photos.
These photos were taken on the way home from a long family vacation. The kids were tired and, while we had a blast on this trip, we were all ready to get back home. Our fun had officially worn us out!
I used the Shimelle Go Now Go “Fly” paper for the background of this page, and then clustered my photos together on vertical strips.
At the top of the photos, I layered together several of the Go Now Go Chipboard stickers with one of the Wooden Buttons … of course I had to use the heart to go with the “I Left My Heart in Nauvoo,” right?! I also added in a couple of red gem hearts for good measure!
More gem hearts and another wooden button accents these chipboard stickers. I had to add a little sarcasm to this page with the “Happy Travels” chipboard sticker … because you can clearly see that Camryn was DONE. Done, and ready to be finished with this flying home thing! Haha!
I used the chipboard letter stickers again on this page for the title, clustering more stickers around it to give it some personality!
The “adventure” acrylic piece is available at Freckled Fawn. (I LOVE the handwritten script of this piece … it was created by talented friend, Crafty Jen Schow!)
