Through A Child's Eyes

12X12 layout Heather Landry Huey July 2012 Kit Mister Huey Simple Stories Studio Calico Summer Fresh Summer Picnic Washi

Happy Monday again! Heather here, and I decided to make a page with the remaining scraps in my Scraptastic Club Summer Picnic kit and add on. I was at a loss on what to do with the few scraps I had until I came across Shannon Zickel's "Brotherly Love" layout on page 86 of the Oct. 2011 issue of Scrapbooks Etc. I knew right away that I had to lift it!  I added some mist and some extra journaling, and I ended up changing the embellishments a lot. These are photos of me when I was a little girl, and I...

Happy Summertime

12X12 layout Clothspin July 2012 Kit Melanie Stanczyk Simple Stories Summer Fresh Summer Picnic Washi

Hello! I'm back with another layout from the July Summer Picnic kit! I do believe there are just a few left so if you are interested, they are becoming limited! Happy Summertime For this layout, I printed my photos at home using a photo template. I cut it in half to break the pictures up a little and bring more color and pattern to the page. This is my son Kaden, watering his "flower garden." You'll notice I did lots of layering on this layout. The red on the right side is washi tape. I kind of wish I would...

Subway Art is all the rage and this Pinterest Board has a boatload of examples. The art on this board is so colorful! There are even a few tutorials for creating your own versions to print and frame for your home. It's a cool trend. Recently, a friend of mine used this premise to create a subway art inspired title for her scrapbook page and it looked fabulous. I wanted to try this myself. First, I needed a title for my page. Two or three words just weren't going to do, so I googled quotes about "play" and came across...

Good Eats

12X12 layout Die Cutting machines July 2012 Kit Michelle Unruh Simple Stories Summer Fresh Summer Picnic

What I love most about our hobby is being able to get down on paper all the silly things my kids have done. These are those little things that may or may not be remembered. My page today is one of those instances. I was doing some cleaning of my living room and had moved the basket of blankets out of the corner at the other end of the sectional and put it where it is sitting in the photos. Well, my apple munching little boy thought it would be a good place to rest and eat his apple.  ...

happy tuesday: kickin' it old school

8.5X11 layout Jillibean Soup juliann marchant. July 2012 Kit Simple Stories Summer Fresh Summer Picnic

Happy Tuesday all! Can you believe it's the end of July? Where did this month go? We have been enjoying our summer so much it's flying by! I do wish i could slow it down just a bit though.  So most of my holiday pages will eventually make it into 1 book. *I hope* so I decided to give this page an old school feel so it would coordinate a little more with the older pages.   Lot's of patterned paper, stapled tabs and matted photos all give it that older feel. I used little touches of the red and...
