{Wander} Layout with the "Enjoy the Journey" Classic Kit

Good morning, it's Meridy with you today, sharing my first layout using the May "Enjoy the Journey" Classic Kit.  There are so many great pieces in this month's kit, lots of colors to work with, and fun embellishments.  I decided to go somewhat monochromatic with this layout, using wood grains, black, white, and blue. 

I used the "B" side of one of the Jillibean Soup papers to mat my whole layout.  Next, the wood grain paper in this kit was to die for, so I wanted it to be the background of this layout.  Then I added layers, starting with the vellum paper, my photos, and lots of embellishments.

I mixed a few pieces from my stash in with the embellishments from this month's kit to create this embellishment cluster.  I started with a wooden frame to frame the "tourist" ephemera, then I layered that up with the blue polka dot heart, the palm tree rub ons, and black enamel heart from the kit.

I really liked mixing up embellishments, phrases, and stamping to make this cluster.  Everything seemed to nestle right together along side of my photo.  Finally, I added a strip of the woodgrain paper down the left side of the layout, I added a little color to it with the mini pom pom trim I had in my stash.  I added my journaling to the framed area on the lower right of the layout, and with that the layout was complete.

Thank you for stopping by today!!!

Documenting WK 13 with Vintage Spring DD

Happy Saturday! Danielle here to share with you my latest project using the Vintage Spring Daily Diary Kit

This weeks Design Team assignment was to incorporate "Texture" to your project.

I did this several ways. The first was to use the ribbon that Noel included in this months kit. I chose to ruffle and stitch it to the side of my layout. The other way I added texture was to use the sequins also included in the kit. I created a shaker pocket with a vellum die cut, then stitched it close. I also used my glossy accents to adhere several that I scattered across a photo.

Here are some close ups

Women of Destiny: Vintage Spring Classic Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with a last layout using the gorgeous Vintage Spring classic kit for April.  I just loved the Carta Bella floral border paper.  I was just screaming at me to use it.  This week, we are using texture in our projects so I used this as an excuse to use the gold leaf ribbon.

The floral border paper just perfectly laid the foundation for my page.  Since I had two 4x6 photos, I wanted to be sure the florals stood out so I staggered the pictures.  

The Destiny ribbon is a wristband from the event that I saved.  I was happy to find a floral die cut in the kit with a floral pattern to echo the background paper.  I layered up some stickers and some of the Amy Tan felt bows.

For the texture, I used the gold leaf ribbon to help separate the photos.

I mixed the two alphas from the kit for the title and added some layered butterfly stickers and enamel dots.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  We can't wait to see how you're using your Vintage Spring kits this month!

Ody-Sea / Vintage Spring Classic Kit

Hi everyone! :) Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made using the Vintage Spring Classic Kit!

This week we are focusing on TEXTURE, and this kit has SO many different goodies to add texture to your pages!! :)

I started by grabbing the "We R Memory Keepers" stencil, a piece of cardstock from the kit and some of my own "Snow-Tex" to add some texture to my page! :)

I spread the "Snow-Tex" along the stencil and let it dry -- 

And here is how it turned out :)

And here is my page :)

And here is a close up of my border I created with the stencil! :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by! :)

Quote Mobile with the Vintage Spring Daily Diary Kit

Sorry everyone, another late night blog post from me.  Tonight I am showing how I used my kit to create a fun little home decor piece with my daily diary kit.  I love the vintage inspired cards in the kit and they really lend themselves with the look and feel in my living room.  I bought this wire mobile over a year ago and it has hung empty in my living room.  After my kit arrived I knew immediately what I wanted to hang from the clips.  Here is what I came up with:

I began by going online and finding some quotes that I really like and then printed these off on photo paper.  I then grabbed the vintage inspired cards and embellishments and went to town.  

Most of the cards I included quotes on both sides of the cards.  The few that are blank use cards with prints on the back.    

It makes a fun addition hanging in my front room corner and it's really nice putting to use my wire mobile.  
What have you been making with this months kits?  We always love to see your work, be sure to post over on the Noel Mignon Facebook Member board.

Happy Scrapping!

{Splash Pad} with the "Vintage Spring" Kits

Happy Monday, it's Meridy here today.  I have a layout to share using a combination of the "Vintage Spring" Daily Diary and the "Vintage Spring" Classic Kits.  The beautiful watercolor paper from the classic kit made the perfect background for a page about the splash pad.

I added a few of the Daily Diary cards, some small strips of paper, the packaging from the gold leaf trim, and a few labels to create the layers behind the photos.  But I thought it still needed a little textrue and detail, so I mixed in a couple of pieces of washi tape and outlined each layer with black pen.  I added my journaling, a few phrase stickers, a couple of bug stickers, and some gold heart stickers to dress up the layers.

Next, it was time to work on the title of the layout.  At first I just had the small title that read "Splash Pad" on the bottom left hand side of the layout, but it still looked too plain for my taste.  

So that's when I decided to add a bunch of phrases and stickers describing the experience.  Ultimately, this is what I came up with, and I love the look of the different fonts, stamps, Thickers, and stickers.

Once I added all of these textures and words, my layout finally looked complete.  I love the way it turned out.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!!!  Happy Spring!  I hope you are putting your "Vintage Spring" Kits to good use, I would love to see what you are creating on our Facebook page or Instagram #NoelMignon

Documenting Wk 12 with the Vintage Spring DD Kit

Happy Saturday everyone! Danielle here with another project using the super cute Vintage Spring Daily Diary Kit

 This week I chose to pull out the pops of green that were in this months kit. They add a pop of freshness to some otherwise dreary colour photos (due to weather)

I fussy cut the green butterfly out of one of the Maggie Holmes Flourish papers, and used my stapler to attach it. Another fun element I added was a piece of my sons favourite blue shirt that ripped. I sewed it onto the side of the page for a fun textural element and to bring out another pop of blue from the photos.

 I cut out a 3x4 section of a kraft bag that had a souvenir in it, from a work trip my husband was on. I like how it pulled over the wood tone on to this page, to mimic the "wood" style paper on the other page.

Have you been creating with your kits? If so, we would love it if you shared with us over on the Facebook Group!!!

Victoria Marie: Vintage Spring Classic Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with another layout using the April classic kit.  This woman...who else knows Victoria?  I'm so happy to have been able to meet her and spend some time together at her scrapbook retreat.  

Since I used the neutral background paper, the Thickers were perfect to stand out on top of it.  

For the top, I wanted to add something to help balance it.  I tore a strip of the washi tape in half and added a sticker and some sequins.  The cluster by the journaling helped pull together all of the colors I picked to use.

I loved the bird sticker so I layered it up with a chipboard word.  I used the washi again to ground my photos.

I loved being able to use the chipboard words for "laughter" and "smiles" because I feel like that's all I did with Victoria.  We laughed and smiled the whole time.  She's wonderful!!!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Please let us see what you are making with your April kits!
