And This Is Why

12X12 layout Baby It's Cold Outside Fancy Pants January 2013 kits Sherri Funk Silhouette Cameo This Life Noted

Today I have a few visuals for you that show why I love using kits to scrap so much.  I know there are a lot of great products on the market...a LOT.  For whatever reason, however, I am not great at piecing together papers, alphas, and embellishments on my own to create my own little kits.  That's where Jessica comes in.  It's my humble opinion that she puts together some of the best kits on the market.  Her ability to mix and match manufacturers and product is fantastic, and I so appreciate being able to skip that step all together...

Boyish pages with Tongue Tied!

12X12 layout January 2013 kits Jennie McGarvey Studio Calico Tongue Tied

Hello there, Jennie here today!  When I first saw Tongue Tied, I was hooked. I love the bright and fun colors + the great contrast provided in this kit.  I knew it was the one for me.  Only after seeing a comment on Facebook did I even consider that Tongue Tied might be a little bit more feminine.   Yup, you could definitely make some awesome girly projects with Tongue Tied, but it works just as well for boys, too. Have a page about basketball?   Oh yea,Tongue Tied works. What about Legos?  You got it! I'm hooked on Tongue...

Happy Monday!  I hope wherever you are you're having a good one -- even if you're in a large portion of the US that is freezing cold.   I'm going to share with you today a project (pocket scrapbooking!) that was inspired by Pinterest!  During one of my Pinterest moments I found this pin and I couldn't wait to make something inspired by it.  Pretty quickly I knew it would make a perfect pocket scrapbooking spread. I loved the mix of photos, solids, prints and how they were all mixed up + the diagonal element.  So, I was inspired to...

Layer Upon Layer

12X12 layout Days of our Lives January 2013 kits LG Belarmino

 Happy Tuesday everyone! I am here to share with you another layout that I did using the Days of Our Lives kit and add-on. For this page, I have used a photo of the medals my little 4yr old won for the past few years. It was perfect because the color palette of the kit matches the ribbon that goes with the medals. I adore this kit because it has so many interesting embellishments that came with it - chipboard, twine, washi tapes, diecut, wood veneer, etc. I had so much fun layering a lot of elements on my page....

Challenge: Using Chipboards

Challenge Days of our Lives January 2013 kits LG Belarmino

 Hi everyone! For another challenge this month, we will concentrate and emphasize on using chipboards as majority of the design. I know most of us use it as an accent of our layouts or card but not purely as the main design.  The Days of Our Lives kit add-ons comes with Fancy Pants The Good Life Chipboard which inspired me to create this page I am sharing today. I love the different frames that came with it. The sizes, the shapes, and the design are so cute. For this layout, I just layered the frames randomly. I used several elements...
