Then & Now

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.

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.

August Challenge 1: Use Mist to Draw Lines

12x12 Carry On Challenge june 2013 June Kit LG Belarmino

It's time for the first challenge this August! My challenge to you today is to go beyond your comfort zone and use your mists in an unconventional way. We usually use mists to, of course, mist colors on our layouts or to add splatters. This time around, I challenge you to open those caps and use the straw of the lid to draw lines on your pages.
