{Closing Down The Pool} with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit

Hello, it's Meridy today, with my very last post for Noel Mignon.  I'm so sad that Noel is closing up shop, but so very, very grateful for all of the years of kits I have subscribed to, and so thankful to have been on the design team for 3 wonderful years!!!  I have scrapbooked SO SO SO many pictures, thanks to Noel's beautiful kits.  

The last layout I would like to share using "The Big Splash" Classic Kit  is another summer swimming layout, of course.  This kit was PERFECT for those pool pictures.  I decided to make my final layout a double pager.  I just love making double page layouts, even though they seem more challenging at times. 


I started with the Carta Bella clothesline paper, and fussy cut 2 strips of clotheslines to create the banner across the top of my 2 page spread.  From there, I didn't feel like I needed much more patterned paper, so I just put a strip of striped paper across the top. 

I simply matted my photos on pink and blue paper, and placed them across the spread.  I cut a strip of the Carta Bella paper with a pool on it and placed it on either end of my line of photos.  

I needed to add a little something, so I pulled a couple of blue doilies from my stash, just to add a few pops of color.  

Next, it was time for my title and embellishments.  I made the title using the white glitter stickers and outlining them with black marker.  I grabbed all of the stamps, phrases, stickers, and chipboard that I thought worked with the colors in the layout and embellished around my title area.

I hand drew the journaling lines and added a few more embellishment clusters.  With that, my layout is complete. 

As a final farewell, I wanted to share a few of my favorite Noel Mignon layouts over the years...

Flamingo Gift Set with the Big Splash Classic Kit

I have been a little stumped this month of what I could do with all the fun prints and colors in this kit.  We aren't big into tropical vacations and all the fun flamingo items had me scratching my head.  After browsing through the Silhouette store I ran across a few flamingo items that I thought were adorable.  I decided to pair them together and make a cute gift set.  

I started with the bag and cut it from a couple of sheets of pattern paper and the cardstock from the kit.  I used the flamingo washi tape along the top of the bag and used a bit of the yellow ribbon and leaf die cut to tie around his neck.  

Next up was the card.  My silhouette really did most of the work and I assembled it all together using some foam adhesive and chalk ink around his feathers.  I then finished the bottom of the card off with more flamingo washi tape, a sentiment, and puffy flower stickers.  

These will be great paired together to wrap up a special gift later in the summer.  

How have you been using this months kit?  We would love to see your projects over on the Noel Mignon Members Facebook page.  

Happy Scrapping!

{Lazy River} with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit

I hope everyone is having an AMAZING summer, enjoying the sun, the heat, the outdoors, all of it.  Today I'm sharing another layout with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit.  This kit is a fun one, and it put me right into the "summer scrapping" mood.  

I wanted today's layout to feature some of the beautiful stamps that came in the kit.  So with that in mind, I began arranging the background layers and placing my photos.  I used fairly monochromatic papers and ink for this layout, with just a few pops of the complimentary color, orange, which I took directly from the photos.

Now that I knew where my papers were going to be, I went to work with a few of the palm frond stamps and 3 different colors of green/teal ink.  I randomly stamped the 2 different size palm frond and mixed that with the 2 different sized smaller leaves from the Heidi Swapp stamp set in the kit on the upper right and lower left corners of the layout.

I used the white glitter alphabet stickers, matted them on black paper, and fussy cut around them to create my title.  I added a chipboard sticker, a couple of puffy stickers, and a cardstock sticker to finish off the title area. 

Next, I mimicked the same types of embellishments on the bottom left hand corner of the layout, using chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, and a couple of cardstock stickers.  I kept the page balanced by using the same types of embellishments in both clusters.  I also made sure to add a couple of pops of orange in each cluster.

The last thing I did was splatter some of the blue mist that came in the kit on both embellished corners of the layout.  And with that, the layout is complete.  Thank you for stopping by today!!!
