Guest Designer | Basic Grey

I was beyond thrilled when Becky Fleck sent me an email asking me if I would be interested in being a Guest Designer for Basic Grey! I remember years ago when I first started scrapbooking ( 2006 ) Basic Grey was my first go to company for awesome products .. My first ever paper collection was Basic Grey Fusion! Crazy to think that years later I would be a featured guest for them.

I selected the B-Side Collection to play with - I love the colors in this kit. That Grey and Pink with a mix of Black and White.. Love it!

Here are a few sneak peeks at my pages - to view them please visit Basic Grey's Blog!
I would also love a comment or two on the BG Blog ;-)

Such great colors right?! What an honor to be part of this awesome company!

Life Documented With Pumpkin Spice | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!

It's Kristine Davidson with you today and I am here to share a Life Documented spread featuring NEW Pumpkin Spice Collection! I had a few pictures from an Apple Picking adventure and this paper collection was perfect for it.

I had quite a few photos from this adventure, but I didn’t want to add too many photos either. I decided to create a layout for the left side of my spread and then add a little pocket page scrapbooking on the right. A great way to create a double page spread perhaps? I am not very good at 2 pagers but this made it really easy.

I added a photos of my nephew on this layout. Showcasing more of a thankful side with no journaling but adding strips of journaling from one of the 4x6 cards. I also wanted to add lots of paper to this page and doing several strips worked well. A great way to use up scraps or use tons of color that match perfectly together.

A simple pocket spread that adds so many extras to an album. Adding lots of photos, extra journaling and even memorabilia. I added more photos on this page and a simple journal card talking about our day apple picking.

Here are a few extra pictures with details.

I love layers. On this corner I first did some sewing around the edge, added a diecut of the tree and then added an apple with 3D foam adhesive to create dimension. Adding extras such as chipboard buttons, bradz and enamel dots just finishes a corner of a page so nicely!

I find working with stickers and diecuts so much fun and easy to layer and create dimension with foam adhesive. I do this on most of my pages. To create more dimension and texture I add sewing and small enamel dots.

I loved this apple and decided to cut it from its original card. I added stickers from the expressions sticker sheet and some twine.

A journal card can be decorated even if it’s for adding details about your day. Add some washi paper tape, a brad or chipboard and your card is embellished.
I hope you enjoyed my Simple Stories Life Documented post today and I hope you have a chance to create with Pumpkin Spice!

T is for Teddy | Bella Blvd

My little nephew loves his teddy. He takes him everywhere - shopping, the beach, to bed and really everywhere. I wanted to create a page that was boyish using all kinds of colors.

Since this is Flashback Friday at Bella Blvd, I decided to take Simply Spring and the Tiny Tots collection and cut up some cute little animals and extras and make my title a bit larger and more prominent including the word teddy. I love how this turned out!!! Scrapbook Adhesives is in partnership with Bella Blvd this week which is awesome! I have been using my EZ Runner and 3D foam squares since 2006 ! Love them and would recommend them to anyone that scrapbooks!

Whatever is ... Today | Bella Blvd

Creating layouts using a mixture of paper collections is often times a challenge for me. I like to stick to one collection and create. Although, I must say that the colors in the Bella Blvd collections are standard - and max all their collections ! Did you know that ?!! Yes, they do! Even if you go back a few months ago you can find a collection that will match one of the recent ones just released. So you can Mix & Match! I created a fun layout this week using quite a few sheets of paper from different collections. I hope you enjoy the reveal today!
