Last Pure Bliss for May

Can you believe that May is soon coming to an end?

It's been a great month but it has gone by so quickly for me.

The kids are done with school and now summer plans are in full-swing.

I love summertime, chances to just relax and hang out with my family, chances to maybe sleep in once in a while. Ha ha. It's a nice idea, anyway, but with four kids that doesn't happen very often.

Today I have one last layout using the beautiful Pure Bliss kit before I did in and work with our new kit for June ♥

Our challenge this week was to either go big or small with an element on our page and I chose to go LARGE!

I started my page off by freehanding a large number two on white cardstock and then cut it out with a craft knife. I wanted to fill in the negative space with strips of paper but guess what? There is a piece of patterned paper in the Pure Bliss kit that looks like strips of paper so I saved myself TONS of time by using that instead. I simply adhered a piece of paper to the back of the 2 with washi tape and added a little bit of glue to the parts that weren't quite stuck down enough. 

I also added a piece of the cute sparkly pink tape from the kit to the top of my layout and some strips of patterned paper to the bottom part of the page.

Because I don't know how to leave white cardstock plain white I added some splatters of spray ink for some color on my background. I used the cute Paige Evans Thickers for my title. 

This is a picture of my silly oldest girls trying on sunglasses while we ordered new prescription lenses for them. They always love posing for me, and it makes a fun picture for my page ☺

I added some cute pink glittery arrow stickers to bring attention to the picture. 

Lastly I added a little aqua button to top off the paper strips as well as some handwritten journaling. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

stage show

Hey all, Michelle here! I have the box containing the new Happy Days classic kit sitting on my desk but I have not opened it yet because I still have lots of the Pure Bliss classic kit leftover. I know I'll get distracted once I open that new box of Noel Mignon goodies for sure!! It's a good distraction, right ;) 
So for today's layout I pulled out some of the fun papers from the Pure Bliss kit & got to documenting my 4 yr old and her imagination that makes me smile every day :) 

My photos on this page aren't directly of my daughter but I think do a good job of telling the story of her 'stage show' that she set up with her toys. These are the stories that I love to document and rremember over the years.
I picked the Pink Paislee pink watercolor paper as the background for my photos so that I could journal right on the paper. I also played a little with that pink glittery washi which was surprisingly thin and easy to work with (doesn't it seem like it'd be thick??)

I also love that white floral ribbon in the kit so I added that at the top of my page for a bit more texture on the page.

So who's ready to play with the Happy Days kits?? I know I am!!!

Documenting Week 19 with Pure Bliss

 Happy Thursday! Danielle here to share with you how I documented Week 19 using the fabulous Noel Mignon Daily Diary Kit - Pure Bliss

This weeks DT challenge is Big or Little - Use either an oversized element on your page, or something miniature

I chose to use words as my oversized elements. I cut out the word "MAY" out of some scraps of paper, and I used a label from my grape packaging that had a large font.

Here are some close up photos

I included a Starbucks gift card that I used this week in one of the pockets. 
I stitched on some alphas for little titles on some of my cards.

We would love for you to play along and share your take on this weeks challenge!

Pure Bliss: Lazy Days

Hi Guys! Jana Eubank here with my "Big or Little" page for the challenge this week.

My kids LOVE swimming with their cousins whenever we go on vacation with them ... they do it ALL day long ... so I decided to place a couple of large heart die cuts behind my title on the following layout.


I used the Pure Bliss Classic kit along with some My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 die cuts. It's hard to tell here, but the gold elements on this page just make these swimming photos sparkle!

I accented the two large heart die cuts with more hearts ... the gold heart stickers found on the gold sticker sheet of the On Trend 2 stickers included with the Pure Bliss kit.

The coral grosgrain ribbon underscores my photo grouping perfectly with a bright pop of color. Combined with a few layered stickers and die cuts, this part of the page is full of lots of interest.

I adore the Pink Paislee buttons included with the kit. I tied them with white twine and sprinkled them throughout the page for dimension. I just love all the different colors, textures, shapes, and sizes in this pack.

Summer is right around the corner and the Pure Bliss kit has been instrumental in helping me get in the mood with all of its juicy colors!

What projects have you created this month with the Pure Bliss Classic Kit?

See you again soon!

The "Pure Bliss" Continues!!

Hello Bloggers! Lynn here with another page using this month's "Pure Bliss" Classic Kit. Our challenge this week is Big or Little. Simply, use a big element or a little element on you page. I decided to go BIG with this challenge. I created a 8.5 x 11 layout this week. I love changing it up once in awhile and I love having different sized pages in my scrapbooks. This layout has a single photo that means alot to me as you can see in the journaling. Here's my page.
Each square has layered papers and embellishments. The Big on my page is the paperclip - it's the biggest one in my stash!! Here's close ups of each card.
I printed this photo with my Collect App and I love that the date is on the photo!! (I tend to forget to date my pages - bad me!!) 
Here's the paperclip photo - can you see the paperclip ok ? LOL!! I added a small piece of gold foiled vellum to add more depth to the layers. 
Here's the next card. The journaling was typed out on my vintage typewriter which I use ALOT!!
Here's the final card. I tucked some gold thread under the circle to tie in with the gold foiled ellum paper. I love these thickers included in this month's Classic Kit! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and come join us in this week's challenge. Please upload your pages to the Noel Mignon Member Page - we'd LOVE to see what you create.
Have a great week and i'll see you next week!

BIG or little..."Pure Bliss" Classic Kit

Hello, it's Meridy here!  This week's theme is BIG or little and I am working with the "Pure Bliss" Classic Kit.  

I decided to go with little for this layout, and took my cue from the AMAZING "Laundry" paper by Basic Grey in this month's kit.  As I was first going through my kit I noticed this super cute paper with little tiny laundry symbols on it.  You know, the symbols that are on clothing tags that tell you how to wash and dry your clothing?  This patterned paper had those symbols in miniature printed all over it...and guess what?  I JUST redid my laundry area last summer, AND I had taken before and after photos.  So I guess I was just waiting for this paper!!!  Oh, and bonus---the paper was the same shade of light blue that I painted the laundry room!  How perfect was that!!?!  

In this photo, you can see the little laundry symbols on the background paper...I also used some of the faux sequins, a button, and of course the little letter stickers by MME.

I loved that all of the pieces in this kit just worked with my layout.  The glitter foam stickers from Pinkfresh Studio made the perfect title and the glittered arrow helps in drawing your eye from the title back up to the photos. A few more faux sequins, some paper layers, and even a couple of branding strips of paper made this layout complete!

Thank you so much for joining me today...I would love to see how you used BIG or little elements on your most recent layouts.   You can share them over on our Noel Mignon Members Facebook page.

Have a great week!!!

Pure Bliss: 5

Happy Saturday!

It's Becky with you today to share another layout for our number challenge.

For my project I chose the number 5.

It is hard to believe that my youngest is now 5 years old- do any of you feel like the time just goes by too quickly? It sure has for me with my sweet kids.

For my page I used this month's Pure Bliss Classic Kit and the colors are perfect for my girly girl who loves to dress up and be "fancy."

Our challenge for this week was to include a number somewhere on our page. I took this challenge as an opportunity to use up some of my collection of number stickers by using some from the Pure Bliss kit and other past Noel Mignon kits as well as some from my personal stash. I think it adds a fun visual element to my page. 

I used lots of embellishments including the Paige Evans chipboard that was available as a shop item. The labels across the top of the page are from the My Mind's Eye sticker pack, which I love because you get SO many stickers! 

I finished off the page with some handwritten journaling. 

I kinda really like how this page turned out with all of the number 5s. My kids have so much fun looking back at old pictures of themselves and I know this page will be one that makes Lily smile down the road when she is older. Yikes. I am not ready for that. 

Please come visit us on the Noel Mignon Members page on Facebook and share your projects with us. 

Soon we will be revealing the new kit so stay tuned!
