Remember |

I created this layout I think last October for Shimelle's site and for some reason as she got busy it was never posted on her site. I had to create a layout from a sketch and it was using a large photo measuring 6" x 12". I had this picture of my niece and the papers from the Amy Tangerine collection were just perfect .. the blue journal card just matched her little sundress!

It was a great day driving around, and as you can read from the journaling - it was a funny moment we had -- me screaming what a great picture this would make.. STOP THE CAR as we stood on the yellow line in the middle of the road! crazy.. but so much fun. we laughed ;-)

You should try this picture format.. it's awesome! I love the large pic and just a few embellishments create your page ;-)

Archie and Willie | Creative Scrappers

Hello and Happy CS Reveal day! 

 Did you have the opportunity to participate in our blog hop Friday? I hope so, it was filled with tons of inspiration! You can visit our blog hop by visiting Creative Scrappers birthday bash link. 

It's time for sketch 267 today. It was an awesome reveal as usual and if you want to see more you can visit Creative Scrappers.

I created this layout using some Elle's Studio papers and wood embellishments. I haven't blogged about our new furry kids - but after Eddie passed away my husband and I had a really hard time and knew we had so much more love to give so we got these 2 little kitties. They were 6 weeks old when we brought them home and although the journaling says 4 months.. it's actually 3 months!  Archie is the male - and Willie is the female. They are brother and sister and really get along well. They do keep up up at night playing on the bed and of course the 5am wake up call for food. Drives US BONKERS! but they are so lovable ;-) If you want to see more pictures i have them on instagram with hastag #ArchieandWillie 

 Our sponsor for this reveal is My Creative Scrapbook! You will be able to get more information on May 1st when their sponsorship starts ;-)

 Hope you enjoyed my reveal for sketch 267 - now let's see yours!

A Few Cards | Paper Camellia

Hello Friends!

I would like to share two card I created with the Paper Camellia April Kit.
This first card is called XOX.
Just a card for everyday things... nothing says hello, sorry or miss you like a few XOXs. I added a few grey enamal dots, twine and pop dots to give my card a bit of dimension.

I also created a sketch for you to use as you wish for this card ;-)

This second card is Called Let's Go!
A great card to invite that special friend of yours on a weekend getaway or week long trip to California!
I used the globe, the post card and camera diecut for this card as they were just perfect for this themed card. I always love a little twine or ribbon on my cards so i added a bit of natrual twine to it.

thanks for stopping by today and hope your being inspired to create with the Paper Camellia April Kit ;-)

Life Documented (May 2012) | Simple Stories

I'm here today with a Life Documented post using the NEW DIY and DIY Boutique Collections from Simple Stories, and today I'm sharing the month of MAY 2012.

 I used the 6x8" album but included different pocket pages. You'll see in this post that with so many varieties of the 6x8 pocket pages you can mix and match to create a uniform album for your LIFE Documented projects.

Page 3 includes 2 4x4" pockets and 4 2x2" pockets. I thought this was perfect to add 2 large photos and a few small ones on the sides.

  Once I started decorating this page I realized I wanted to add more but didn't want to add another page so instead, I added a 4x4" Photo Flip. You can add these in different ways but I adhered mine to the left of the pocket page. This allows a great Flip to view journaling and another photo.  I love this format, it's like a little secret pocket!

I added a confetti pocket to the next page, they add such fun details to a spread and you can add anything you like. In my Mini Confetti pocket I added some enamel dots, stickers, word phrases, and some small punched out pieces of patterned paper.  

My technique for creating this pocket is simple : you can add your items and sew them to the page protector or you can make a small sized pocket with the items, sew them together and then add them to your pocket.   
As you flip the page, I again used a monthly calendar showing the days of the month and a few pictures of what happened that day. Some aren't exact dates but I'm ok with that.

This following page is OH HAPPY DAY, a Simple Stories Silhouette Cut File. I added pop dots under the die cut to add a bit of dimension.

The last page for May 2012 has a few photos and journaling about misc days in the month.

I am using the 6x8 Sn@p! Leather Album in black for all of my Life Documented pages for 2012. It's sturdiness, metal corner accents, and stitch details are fantastic and durable. The album will be handled often so durability is a must - this Sn@p! album is so far the best I've been using.
I used a variety of inserts for this monthly spread - a 6x8" size featuring 2x2" to 4x6 and also a full 6x8. The Sn@p pocket pages come in a variety that you can add to your album. PERFECTO!

Remember, Laugh | Paper Camellia

Hello Friends!

It's time for a new Paper Camellia Sketch Challenge!
Have you been enjoying the previous sketches? Getting some inspiration from our designers?

This is the April Sketch, created with a bit of simplicity and straight lines.
I love blocks lately and this sketch is no exception.

I used a photo of my friends and I at a crop last October. It was a great time - we laughed, cried and had so many great stories to share. The title i selected for this layout is exactly that... REMEMBER, LAUGH.
the Laugh was cut out from the Chickaniddy Gold foil papers and my silhouette die cut machine.

Enjoy the sketch and let's see those layouts ;-)

Going Places | Paper Camellia

Hello Friends!

It's April 1st today! Were you fooled today? I actually pulled a little one and told my coworkers we were going to get some sunshine tomorrow and 14degrees! LOL.. That's funny ;-/ ( NOT! ) I'm over winter, tired of this snow and well I created this mini album of my trip to California - were it was sunny and over 14degrees!

This was created using the Paper Camellia April Kit and Add On Kit.

It was a great weekend in California and I wanted to document some of those fun memories I had with some friends . We took a tour from Anaheim to Hollywood and it was so much fun. We got to see so many great sites, and visited some iconic locations as well. The Holly wood sign, Chinese Theatre, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive and So Much more. 

Interested in creating your own mini album..

Come back tomorrow - i'll be sharing more creations !
