The Monday after losing an hour of sleep is always a hard one.. I’m here today with a colorful spring spread hoping to brighten the first day of your work week!
I really love capturing the details of our home.. I wanted to incorporate some floral prints into this spread of the new flower arrangement in our kitchen. I used several papers from the Felicity Jane “Jane” March kit.. my first one. I made a deal with myself that if I were subscribing to a new kit, I would do a better job of incorporating products that I already have.
I have lots of Shimmerz products from the shop hanging out in my craft room. I chose this shade of green to add a little detail to my spread (like those dots highlighting the “photos I love” journaling card) and create an ombre filler card. I absolutely love using Acri-Tonez with water – it creates a water-color look that still has a matte-like finish! So great!
Do you have some shimmerz Acri-Tonez in colors you struggle to use? Try using it in combination with water for a water-color effect. It really softens the color!
I thought cork products were the perfect balance for this spread – the natural tones worked well with the pastel color palette! I used arrows and hearts from the shop.
I love the layering of sequins (this mix!) on cork – and the staple just adds some whimsy! Fun fact, I keep forgetting to order tiny staples for my tiny AC stapler, so those are full sized staples.. HA. Also on my page are thickers from Amy Tangerine’s “Finders Keepers” and Dear Lizzy “Saturday” collections.
I really like how the page on the right looks without any pictures, really functioning as a pretty title page. Especially since the left side is so full of color.
Hope you felt inspired today!
Hello all! I’m back today with a quick Project Life layout. These photos are from the first day of school, September 2, 2014. I didn’t take many photos because I was too busy holding back those proud Mama tears many of us shed on that first day back. Sniff, sniff. To create this layout I used Everyday Eclectic by Allison Kreft for Echo Park Paper. I just love the color combos in this line!
Many of you have read about my creative method of “15 minutes to scrap” which I definitely hold myself to doing almost daily. This is a great method that works for me and my crazy busy life. I worked on this layout in very short periods of time, no longer than 15-20 minutes. I started by cutting my papers to size and arranging them in the pockets along with my photos.
During my second short scrap session, I pulled out my embellishments consisting of the Everyday Eclectic stickers Chic Tags wood veneers, Studio Calico wood veneers, enamel dots, paper now from Michael’s Craft Store etc. During my last scrap session I began to stick things down and add the finishing touches like the wood veneers & enamel dots. After a total of about 45-55 minutes, this layout was done & in our 2014 scrapbook!!
Thanks so much for spending your time with me today!! I hope you’ll give this method a try! I’d love to hear from you about scrapping 15 minutes at a time!!
See you soon and remember …..
Do something creative today!
