Grad School: You Go Girl Daily Diary Kit

Hey!  Sarah here with a simple layout using the daily diary kit for March.  I wanted to document the fact that I decided to go back to school at the age of 39, which is scary!  The die cuts really helped me to put this together quickly.

I pulled a few papers from my stash to layer behind my photo since the last paper I have from the kit didn't really fit the look I was going for.  So I layered them up and used a full Felicity Jane paper for my background, which is a gray with a scalloped bottom.

I loved the backpack die cut from the kit and knew I could use it here since it is a school themed layout.  I also used a Pebbles puffy sticker of the coffee cup,  

I used the square die cuts in a grid pattern to embellish the left side of the layout.  I felt that the quotes on them were perfect for this layout.  The "You Got This" is cut from one of the 6x6 papers from the kit and layered on top of a die cut where I didn't need the quote, so I covered it up with a better one for the layout.

I used a long title!  I put the "Grad School" in white to highlight that as my overall title and the rest I used the navy Thickers.  I really like the look of the title.  The Pink Paislee butterflies helped to anchor the journaling.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I can't wait to see how you are using your March kits!

Welcome spring

Hello again!

It's always great to be here to share projects with you that I make using Noel's kits.

The You Go Girl kits are gorgeous- and if you think so, you should see the kits for April. They are so beautiful. You will love them ♥

Anyway, for my project today I decided to create a piece of home decor using bits from both of the You Go Girl kits:

I started with this wooden piece from Jillibean Soup Mix the Media that I found at my local Walmart store.

I cut some flowers out of cardstock using my Silhouette diecutting machine and then covered those with patterned paper from the kits. I also cut the word "welcome" to use on this project. I layered the diecut flowers with Prima paper flowers found in both of the in the kits this month.

The butterflies are from a sheet of patterned paper in the Classic kit. I simply cut around them and glued them onto the project.

I finished off this simple project with a strip of gold scalloped washi tape from the washi book included in the kit. 

Thanks for stopping by Noel Mignon today ♥

Sweet Moments

Hey all! I'm here with  another layout using the You Go Girl kits. This week I'm combining elements from the Classic and Daily Diary Kits...something I always love to do!
The background paper is from the Classic Kit and all of the embellishments are from the Daily Diary Kit. There were lots of fun little die cut shapes and embellishments to choose from!
The stamp is from the classic kit and helped fill in that space to the right of my photo. Tip: The words on this roller stamp are very small so be sure to lightly tap on your stamp pad and test on a scratch piece of paper.

Unicorns Exist with the You Go Girl Classic Kit

Happy Tuesday!  I have really enjoyed creating with this months kit and have made quite a few fun projects.  I decided though to make an actual scrapbook page this week.  A few of the products in the kit reminded me of a few cakes I have made lately at my new job and I thought it would be fun to document the trend of unicorns that seems to be making an appearance everywhere. 

I started with my title.  I used a combination of chipboard stickers and a Silhouette machine cut.  I then backed this with pattern paper and a tag. 

I then started layering my photos and pattern paper strips on the bottom.  Placing a few bits of washi tape down and tucked in the date. 

Once I had placed all my elements I began to embellish with rubons, chipboard stickers, and a rhinestone brad to dot the "i" in my title. 

I decided the left hand side needed something so I took a couple of pattern papers and placed them along the side and topped the corner with an old photo corner from my stash. 

I love how all the colors and supplies work in this months kit and it was fun to use a feminine color palette.  What are you making with this months kit?  Be sure to share with us over on the Noel Mignon Member Facebook group. 

Happy Crafting!

{Meeting Belle} Layout with the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit

Hello, it's Meridy here, and I have another Disney layout to share with you using the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit.  I loved the butterfly paper that came in the kit, and I immediately knew I wanted to fussy cut the butterflies from the paper.  So that's what I did for today's layout.

I popped the butterfly wing up with small pop dots to add dimention.  Naturally, the butterflies are the focal point of ths layout but I also used a couple of layers layered some cardstock with packaging from the embellishments.  I used a piece of the gold washi to seperate the patterned paper on the top portion of the layout from the bottom portion of cardstock.

I stamped the journaling lines right onto the layout and added a few phrase stickers around the photo.

I created my title with a stamped tag I made and the mini alphabet stickers from last month's kit.  I used some stickers and a small strip of the bow washi from the kit to embellish my title.

The layout itself is really fairly simple, since the butterflies add such a punch.  Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

Taco Friday: You Go Girl Daily Diary Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with a layout using the You Go Girl daily diary kit.  When I saw the "Taco Tuesday" sticker in the Pebbles package, I knew exactly what layout I would make.  My girlfriends (and occasionally my husband) go out every Friday night and have tacos.  It was perfect!

I used a background paper from my stash since the only paper I have left to use in the kit didn't fit the look I was looking for.  I pulled out this neutral paper to use which had the top patterns and stars and the bottom drops already printed on it.  I also pulled the large gold doily and the blue branding strips with hearts from my stash as well.

For my title, I knew I had to use that "Taco Tuesday" sticker as a part of it.  For the rest of the title, I did a little take on the quote from The Lego Movie where Wyldstyle talks about Taco Tuesday turning into Freedom Friday...but still on a Tuesday.  So I took that to influence my title for "Taco Tuesday...but on a Friday."  I took two of the 6x6 pattern papers to layer behind my two photos which are both 4x4 sized.

For the outsides of the photos, I used a few stickers to embellish it.  On the right side here I used a Pink Paislee epoxy sticker and two Pebbles puffy stickers.  The little BFF phone was awesome because these girls are my BFFs!

For the left side I cut out this quote from one of the 6x6 papers that says "happy girls are the prettiest" because we are happy when we have tacos. And the #girlsquad was great, and I did preface in my journaling that it's always us girls and occasionally my husband, lol!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I can't wait to see what you're making with this month's kits!

remembering the best times

Hey there!

Is it spring break where you are?

It is here and we've been lazily enjoying our time off.

We haven't gone anywhere amazing or done anything too exciting but it's been fun to be home and to relax and not have to be too many places like we would on a regular week. With one daughter in competitive gymnastics we get to travel a lot this time of year so we are happy to just be able to stay home and do nothing ☺

For this week's project I used the You Go Girl Daily Diary kit. It's adorable and there are still two left in the shop!

For this page I used the grid paper in the Daily Diary kit. The rainbow striped piece is actually the paper insert from the little foam Thickers. I just pulled it out of the packaging and cut a strip off and saved the remainder for another project. I love to use packaging and other kit contents in creative ways. 

This little frame was from the kit as well. I used spray mist in green and aqua to add some color to it and then added a couple of Pink Fresh Studios leatherette tags and other embellishments around it. 

One of my favorite parts of Noel's kits is the mix of alphas that can be used in titles. Here I used the foam Thickers from the Daily Diary kit and some puffy stickers and a chipboard word to make the title for my page. 

What have you been creating lately? 

We'd love to have you visit with us and share your creative ideas on our Noel Mignon Members Facebook page. 

Have a great day!
