Two for the price of one with the Happy Together Daily Diary Kit

Hello all!  Can you believe it's the last day of February?!  Today I bring you two layouts that I used with the Happy Together Daily Diary Kit (which by the way there are still 2 kits left!!) and the extra Pattern Paper.  I was trying to "kill my kit" and I feel like there is still quite a bit more.  Noel is amazing at packing in so much into each and every one of her kits.

This layout features my favorite ice cream that sadly is only available from the end of January to the first part of March every year.  It is from Baskin Robbins (where I work as a cake decorator) and I would say I definitely eat my fair share.  Good thing I can snag a few taster spoons every day to help me fill the craving ;).   The layout uses the pattern paper for the background papers and the rest of the journaling cards, chipboard stickers, title cards, small letter stickers, and washi tape are from the daily diary kit.

I started first by cutting hearts from the background paper and backed it with the strip pattern paper.

I then did some layering with my title by using two of the 4x6 cards and cut out the word love from both cards.  The large one I did hand stitching around the edges and the script I used a white pen and traced around the edges.   The long label helped house the rest of my title and the number stickers are from my stash.  

The finishing touch was placing the cute little arrow charms over the top of the chipboard hearts.  I used Helmar Scrapdots to keep them in place.  It is an adhesive that has to dry over night, but it keeps heavier embellishments  nice and secure.  

The second layout I played off the teal, green, black text prints in the pattern paper pack and 4x6/3x4 cards in the Daily Dairy kit.  

This layout features my husband.  These pictures were taken several years ago at our yearly family photoshoot and I have never done anything with them.  They are so him and so I thought it would be perfect to pair them with a little journaling about some of the things that often come out of his mouth.  Random phrases that are very much him.  

Basically all the cards/pattern paper, labels, stickers in the center part of the layout are all from the Daily Diary kit and the background cardstock and pattern paper are from the paper pack.  

I also added some extra color to my title with some enamel stickers from last months Little Bird Classic Kit.  

I loved this months Happy Together Daily Dairy kit and the addition of the pattern paper.  I was able to get three cards, three layouts, and the start of my nieces baby album from this months kit.  I'm hoping to get one more layout out of the extra pattern paper and if I do I will be sure to share it on the Noel Mignon Member Facebook page.  

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, happy scrapping! :)
