This month I received a wonderful kit from Crazy Daisy Kit Co.. With the kit I was able to create a few layouts fit for the boys. The main paper line in this mini kit was Oliver Collection by Basic Grey. With the red, blues and touch of green from collection makes it prefect for a little boy. I have to say this layout (below) is one of my favorites made from this kit.
Picture: I took this picture while visiting my cousin and her family this summer. Jackson ( her youngest son) is one of the most lovable, sweetest and energetic little boys I know.
For the title, I cut out "About a" from the cricut machine and used one of the cute tabs "boy" (Oliver collection- embellishment) to complete the title for this layout. Of course I had to do some kind of cute & fun journaling to finish the layout. I used a white marker to whiteout a few boxes and then wrote words inside the boxes to accent the journaling. This is just a fun and out-of-the box way to journal!
It's Monday once again, can you believe it! Where did the weekend go? After having a great and busy weekend, it's nice to get back to a routine. This morning we were up and about at 6am with showers, breakfast, and then dressed for school. As soon as my feet hit the floor every Monday morning I don't stop til 3 pm for a little break. I'm already looking forward for the upcoming weekend!!!!!
On a more scrappy note, If your looking for a great scrapbooking kit you need to checkoutCrazy Daisy Kit Co. . Just wanted to give you a sneak peek of what I've been working on from this months August Mini kit.
This kit has been great to work with. The mini kit features grungy blues and red, with fabulous papers from Basic Grey along with other great goodies. You don't want to miss out on this one! Come take a look what all the other designers have creative with their wonderful August kits.
Yes, simplicity is beauty, but I love to embellish "BIG". When I have a great photo that I want as my focal point of a layout, I try not to over embellish. Just by adding a little detail to that layout makes me very happy. Although I love the finished look of the layout , I still have to say simplicity is not my cup of tea. It's more like a tablespoon of sugar that makes me want to keep trying it again :)
Checkout one of "my" favorite layouts I've done using somePinkPaislee- 365° Degrees and Starlight collection.
The paper in these two collections are wonderful, but the one thing I adore the most from Pink Paislee is the cork shape embellishments. I used the cork shape circle and accented it with a bling shape star on top of another circle I punched out. Then placed it on a journal stickers from the Starlight collection.
To top the layout off, of course I used a mix ofAmerican Crafts "Thickers" for the title.
Who said you had to use the same style & font when titling a layout? So, go ahead and mix it up for a great look!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent the weekend scrapbooking with a few friends till 4 am in the morning. Got a few layouts done, but as always there was more talking,and laughing then scrappin. It was a great way to end a great weekend!
