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)

 

2015 Week 2 c

 

2015 Weeek 2 d

 

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.

2015 Week 2 e

 

2015 Week 2 f

 

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.

If there is anything on this spread in-particular you would like to know where it came from, leave a comment and I will be sure to get back to you.

Smile Today

Smile Today Jan Hip kit 1

 

Hey everyone! I was simply thrilled to get my hands on the December and January Hip Kits (I live in Canada so Kim ships to me every other month saves me a little money).

I thought these pages were so simple and soft and I have been wanting to scrapbook this photo from my sisters wedding and it all just worked together so well.

Smile Today Jan Hip Kit 2

These die cuts we got in the Heidi Swapp package made a perfect title, I was a little worried at the start as they were slightly bend and twisted from in the package but once I sprayed them down they worked wonderful!

Smile Today January Hip Kit 3

 

The background paper is Canson watercolour paper, I used Golden Titanium white acrylic paint to give me more of a contrast between the paper and the paint the white and off white look lovely together, especially after I added the Heidi Swapp colour shine to it.

The patterned paper that is backing the layout I think is from the December hip kit, but I can no remember for sure. If you need to know leave a comment and I will find out for you.

Lucky to be Cousins!

Lucky to be cousins

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!

Lucky to be cousins 2

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.

The background of this layout is Canson Watercolor paper. and I used Lindy’s stamp gang sprays to add colour (colours will be listed at the bottom of the post.

Infinity Christmas 2014

Disney 1 xmas

Wahoo, I am on a roll two blog posts and its only the 4th of January, and I have a few more that are ready to go, maybe I will keep up posting this year (fingers crossed).

This is a photo from my instagram from Christmas morning, one happy little guy with his new video game.

So I started this layout by adding gesso and Izink’s to the backround then splattering some gold mist.

Disney 2 xmas

Layering up some of my scraps from the December Hip Kit and adding some tissue paper from my stash finishing the base for the photo to lay on,

disney 3 xmas

Embellishing with different bits and pieces from the kit brought this layout together rather fast, and the Elle’s studio grey letter stickers were perfect because there are so many of every letter I had no issue making the words I needed.

If you are looking for a kit to try, I highly recommend the Hip Kits, Kim seems to find the perfect balance between paper, and TONS of embellishments to meet any need you may run into on your layout.
