12x12 layout Anna Kossakovskaya Freckled Fawn Heartbeats add-on January 2014 January 2014 This Must Be The Place Kit Leanne Allinson This Must Be the PLace This Must Be the Place add-on wood veneers

Hello, friends! Today is Thursday and it's time for our new challenge. Anna and Leanne have prepared for you a challenge "From A to Z" - all letters of the alphabet should be used. And this is Anna's layout. I played with January 'This must be the place' main and add-on kit. But wood veneer letters are from December 2014 Heartbeats Add-On, they are really so inspiring!  Do you feel sometimes, that materials tell you what to do? I feel it sometimes and this time too! Letters and these pictures of my baby told me to create this layout. The most hard thing for me...

Vellum and the This Must be the Place kit

Hi everyone, Susan here to share a couple of layouts using this month's This Must be the Place Kit, Add on kit, and Stamp Set. I have really enjoyed this kit with the softer colors and dreamy vellum die cut embellishments. For a couple of my layouts, I felt like adding a little more vellum from my stash and I thought I would share a couple of ideas. For my first layout I have photos from one of my antiquing trips. I really wanted a layered background so I matted the page multiple times on the edge because it reminded...

Scraptastic Store: September Skies

12x12 Heidi Swapp January 2014 Madeline Fox Scraptastic Club Store September Skies washi tape

I'm always on the lookout for collections with blue, and Heidi Swapp's September Skies is a great one, with a very versatile set of patterns. On the page below, I layered several strips and played up the navy, aqua, and lime papers with stickers from Echo Park, die-cuts from Gossamer Blue, and a washi tape banner. This is one of my favorite uses for washi tape...and oh so easy:  Several strips of washi tape were folded over twine. Then using scissors, I cut each tape into a triangular flag shape (being super careful so as not to snip the twine!)...

Hi all! Nancy Burke here, along with Jill Sprott for today's "Thursday Challenge"! Since it is January (a good month for self-reflection and setting goals), we decided to do a "note to self" kind of challenge, whether looking back at the past year's events, or looking ahead at what the new year will bring.  This past year for me was all about travel, and despite a few health issues, I got to see so many fabulous places. My goal for next year? Better health and more travel! For a fun grouping of embellishments, I decided to use the stamp set from...

Summer Memories with Sweater Weather Kit

12x12 4th of July January 2014 Madeline Fox Sweater Weather kit

You've heard of Christmas in July, right? Well, how about 4th of July in January? OK...I guess that's going a little too far!  BUT, you can certainly create scrapbook pages about JULY activities in JANUARY, and that's just what I've done this month with Scraptastic's Sweater Weather kit and add-on. It's fabulous colors shout U. S. A. and the patterns are so very versatile. Don't you love the look of kraft with red, white, and blue?! To reinforce the theme of my page, an American flag cut file was duplicated along the bottom of the background paper and small stars were stamped...
