TGIF, and Happy Fourth of July to all my American friends!  I'm (Tracy) here with Jennie today, sharing some pocket page inspiration to kick off your weekend! For my 2 pages I used the This Life Noted kit from June.  I really loved the soft peaches and blues with the dark navy and orange accents in this kit.  Here are both pages together (although they won't be side by side in my album, as I discuss in the video below):   Here is the first page, which documents early May:   And here is the second page, which documents mid...

12X12 layout june 2014 June Kit Katie Rose Sail Sail Add-on Sail Kit

There is something about the end of the school year that makes me super nostalgic. I always end up going through older pictures of my kids, reminiscing and seeing how much they have grown. I used this as a theme for this layout with pictures of my boys taken at the same place but four years apart.   Then & Now (using the Sail Kit) I used a classic grid design approach to this layout, inspired by the frames and die cut cards in the Sail kit. The fun embellishments in this kit add the perfect finishing touches. I just...

Hi everyone! Katie here and today I am hoping to inspire you to use your punches on your layouts. If you are like me then your punches are collecting dust ever since you got your fancy die cut machine:) But some designs are actually a little easier when you use your punches. Today I am going to share two layouts using the Sail kit and also using my trusty ol' punches.   First up…You Make This Look Easy. I used a circle punch on this layout and then cut my circles in half to create a kind of scallop look....
