2015 Week 2

2015 week 2 a

Wahoo back with week 2! Is is sad that I feel really excited after 3 weeks to have 2 of them done. This spread is using cards from past Scraptastic This Life Noted Kits. This week was a crazy expensive week, my son got completely spoilt, he got his hockey gear, and then we purchased a PS4 (which I had been saving for sense they got released and they had one at Walmart with the Lego Batman game so I picked it up)

You can see in that picture I added a vertical photo, the issue I ran into was when I went to put my layout into its page protector, of course I planned it on the side where the opening was on the spread from the prior week. Easy fix I took my craft knife and ruler and cut a slit at the top of that pocket on the back side that is only as wide as the photo, slid the card in the other side then slid my photo in the slit I had made on the front and re-attached it.

The other half of the spread of course follows the same colour pallet as the prior page, and was also kept simple, a little journaling wood veneers, and an acetate word from Heidi Swapp. The tag I used on the photo of my son sleeping is cut from Tim Holtz’s tiny tabs and tags die.

Hey everyone! I am here again with another layout to share with you all. I finally received my December Kit from Scraptastic on the 7th of January (Christmas slows all the mail down). I loved all the papers included in this kit!

My son and my niece are truly lucky to be as close in age as they are (3 weeks apart). I just felt this photo was perfect to show that. Just a simple lunch out with me and them playing at the table.

So this is my first layout using the November Shake it off kit and add on from Scraptastic. I really do love this kit, but being in Canada, these kits seem to take forever to get to me… like 1 1/2 weeks longer then another kit club I subscribe to that shipped 3 days after this one. Oh well I ❤ it regardless.

Aside from the kit and add-on, things added from my stash were Canson 140lbs watercolour paper, my Smash book roller date stamp, Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays in a coral and a yellow (I don’t have the colours beside me at the moment but if you would like to know just leave me a comment and I will get them for you, they were both Flat Fabio’s), as well as I cut down one of the polka dot acetate dividers from PL, and finally some beloved enamel dots from my stash.

I love taking things apart, like that stitched pocket here, I pulled the tag out of it, took the remember this off of the front added one of the fabric banner pieces and then put the remember this back on the front. Layers make me happy even if they are simple.

In the background here you can see that I started with some Golden Light Molding paste, and a butterfly stencil from prima.

This little tag with the crate paper on it was ever so cute but it was too tall for what I wanted… easy fix! Just cut it in half and glue it back together the crate paper hides the joint perfectly, later a few stickers from the sticker sheet and it is done!

I have been working on these pages for a while now, my little sister got married in August and I have been slowly completing layouts for her book. That is why, unlike most of my layouts, there is no journaling on this page, I leave that for her to do.
