Member Scraplift---Jackie George

This week is dedicated to scraplifting our members...I really enjoy scraplifting layouts every so often. I created this layout using the "Golden Delicious" Classic Kit.

It is based off of the following layout by Jackie George...

When I "lift" a design, I typically copy it pretty loosely.  I'm not very good at scraplifting every piece, layer, and embellishment exactly the same.

As soon as I saw this combination of mint colored papers in the Golden Delicious kit, I knew EXACTLY which photos I wanted to scrapbook with them.  They matched my kids' 2014 Christmas photos perfectly!  I couldn't have asked for better color coordination!

I've decided to try to add little bits of my own handwriting as embellishments on my layouts.  This one I wrote "merry", "noel", and "love" and well as "2014".  I like the little added touch!  I need to keep practicing creative lettering so I can do more in the future.

Thank you Jackie, for sharing your work on our Noel Mignon Members Facebook page---you really inspired me!

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow, I will see you all next week with another layout!

Members Scraplift Week

Hello Everyone! Hope you are all doing well! This is such a busy week, isn't it? Shopping, cooking, cleaning and traveling - I'm tired just typing that! The end result is so worth it - quality time with family and friends! It's a time to appreciate all that we have!
This week the Design Team is taking the time to appreciate our awesome Noel Mignon Members by scrap lifting a member's project! I decided to create a layout this week based on a member's layout. I stayed true to her design except I adapted it to a 8.5 x 11 format. I haven't created this size layout in a while and I forgot how fun it is! Here's my page using this Month's Golden Delicious Kits.
I based my layout on Julie Evers lovely layout. I loved her layering and design. Here's Julie's page.
Here's a few close-ups of my page. I layered lots of patterned papers and bent the edges to give the papers some dimension.
By layering lots of papers together it's easy to tuck embellishments in here and there! Here's a close up of the embellishment in the upper right corner of my page.
Thanks Julie for the inspiration and we appreciate ALL the members of our online family.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Be safe and have a great time with family and friends! See you soon!!!

Documenting Life with my Golden Delicious Daily Diary Kit

Happy Monday! Danielle here, 
to share with you what I created for 
Noel Mignon this week, using the 
Let me start off by saying I love the mix of October Afternoon and Simple Stories products! They work so well together!

 Here is the left side of my spread.  I fell in love with the 4x6 couch card from OA! How cute is it?! I also loved using the Simple Stories sticker brads.  They add a nice dimension to the page but without all bulk!

 Here is the right side of my spread. I did more stitching this week using the 3x3 OA card, and some of the pattern paper included in the kit. 
 I loved layering those adorable flowers with the sticker brad! For this "And now a word from our sponsor" card, I cut out the center of the t.v. and added my picture to the back of it, so it looked like it was a t.v. commercial.
 And how adorable is that dimensional squirrel sticker?! Here I used another 3x3 OA card and stitched some paper to it again. I love the effect of the different patterns stitched together. 

I hope I have inspired you to created something fabulous with you Noel Mignon Kits this week!

And don't forget, Noel only has a handful of this kit left!! You can find it HERE

Golden Delicious: Queen of the Kitchen

Hi Everyone! It's Jana Eubank. I'm back again today with another two layouts using the Golden Delicious Classic Kit.

In the photo, my daughter is wearing my favorite apron. I used it as inspiration in putting together the colors and papers for this page.


I placed the photo on the orange Echo Park "Pumpkins" paper leaving a larger border at the bottom, similar to a polaroid picture. To the right of this photo mat, I layered on a bunch of little flowers and bits in the corner for some fun detail.

To the right of the photo, I tucked in one of the 6x8 cut apart pages. I used the page as a place for my journaling on top of a fun mixed letter title (smaller letter stickers are from the Golden Delicious Daily Diary Kit). I used the cut apart Evalicious labels, chipboard pieces, brads, and phrase stickers (also from the Daily Diary Kit) to create a little scene around the title. This was so much fun to put together!


On this second page, I used the Golden Delicious Classic kit (sorry, sold out) to create an outdoorsy page.

At the top, I used a metal die and a stamp from my stash to create the layered tabs. It was the perfect spot to add the date!

I cut out the squirrel from the Imaginisce "Green Hill" paper and adhered him to the page with foam squares. He looks so cute accenting my photo (and covering all of that boring extra white space in the image).

The title was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo machine using an image from their shop. I cut the words twice, trimmed out every letter, and then adhered those letters to the first word layer with foam squares for dimension. The brad, sequins, and heart die cut from the kit add a little bit of fun.

See the brown paper that I used for the word "Camper?" That is actually from the product packaging for the Imaginisce stickers. It looks great here with the other patterns on the page.

The yellow journal spot, leaves, and "So Thankful" circle were all cut from cards included with the Golden Delicious Daily Diary Kit

Thanks for coming by today! REMEMBER: Tonight is the Kit Reveal Party over on Facebook! I can't wait to see the December kits!!! I hope to see you there!

Home Decor with Golden Delicious: Thanksgiving

Hi, Everyone! It's Jana Eubank. I am getting so excited for Thanksgiving next week! I always enjoy hanging out with family, telling stories, and eating delicious food.

I found this wood tray at Hobby Lobby and decided to dress it up for Thanksgiving using a mixture of the Golden Delicious Daily Diary and Classic kits. My plan is to change out the cards for the different holidays and seasons, and keep this decoration out year round. It's perfect on the side table of our family room!

The openings are a little smaller than the standard 4x6 and 3x4 cards, so I had to trim 1/8" off of each side of the cards. I was careful to select cards where this wouldn't be a problem with the design. Another option would be to add photos to the openings.

My favorite card is the "Autumn" card with the gold bow. I had fun layering a chipboard pieces and a brad on top of the bow for a unique look.

I also love that little owl critter! Doesn't he look like he is saying a prayer of gratitude with his eyes close like that?... How sweet!

This was so much fun to create! I can't wait to fill it with Christmas themed products next month!

Enjoy your weekend!

Hey guys, are you having as much fun playing with the Golden Delicious kits as I am?? This kit seriously makes me smile every time I pull it out! 

Today I have a pocket page layout. The original inspiration for this page came from some of the little drawings that my 4 yr old was making and I thought a pocket page would make more sense design wise and allow me to add more photos in with the drawings. 
I used the classic kit for this page and even though it's not meant for pocket pages you can still make it work!

As I do with all of my pocket pages, I placed the photos in the spots where I wanted and then added embellishments & some patterned paper here and there until I was happy with it. 
I also put a couple of the embellishments on top of and sticking out from my page protector because the placement worked better that way!

The Golden Delicious classic kit is sold out but there are still a few of the daily diary kits left!

So Thankful-Celebrated through Daily Diary Pocket Pages

Today I am SO excited to share my latest Noel Mignon Daily Diary pocket pages using November's kit Golden Delicious.  I am so excited because it surrounds one of my most favourite things in the world....gratitude and thankfulness.  

I am continuing on creating pages in my 6x8 album with this kit.  I just love this size for so many reasons.  One thing that is really fabulous about the Daily Diary kits is that the are full of cards that already come either 2x2 or 4x4 sized.  It makes these pocket pages SO convenient and quick to create. LOVE that!

The left hand side of my spread this month features a full page photo.  I added some of the kit's embellishments on top.  I am just loving the Tim Holtz Small Talk Occasions stickers that are included in this kit.  Such beautiful sentiments and they make awesome additions onto pages.

As always, I have added my embellishments both directly onto the pocket sleeve, as well as onto my photo.

The right hand side of my spread consists of photos, 2x2 patterned paper cards, and those super cute chipboard photo frames I cannot get enough of.  I LOVE these! They are so fun to add to photos and provide the most perfect dimension.

I love using the 4x4 cards in these pockets.  I simply trim the card down to 2x2 and then I am able to fill 4 of the pockets.  

Hands down, my family is where my deepest gratitude and thankfulness lies.  He is our miracle baby and each day my heart bursts with gratitude for him.

I am so thankful for these photos and memories of our life.
