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!

hello spring

We've had some nice days sprinkled in with the chilly ones so when the sun comes out we take full advantage of it! My youngest daughter was sick for nearly 2 weeks and when she was feeling a little better and the sun came out she went outside to play in her sandbox for a little bit. My dog Tucker loves to hang out next to her sandbox so he enjoyed the day just as much as she did...ball in mouth :)

{5th Grade Promotion} with the "Vintage Spring" Kits

Hello!  It's Meridy here today, and I have a layout to share with you using the "Vintage Spring" Daily Diary and Classic kits.  Since this layout is about my daughter, I was able to use lots of the feminine elements from the kits.

I started with the background 12x12 patterned paper, added a strip of patterened paper down the left hand side of the layout, and embellished that seam with some of the gold glitter washi tape.  Next, I added 6x6 layers from the Daily Diary kit.  I even used one of the journal cards as a layer under the smaller photo.

After placing the photos where I wanted them, it was time to add embellishments.  I just loved the pack of floral embellishments that came in this month's kit.  So I pulled a few roses in various colors and started placing them to frame the main photo.  There were a few distractions in the original photo that I didn't want to show up on the layout, so that is why I placed the flowers in this configuration.  

Next, I added the paper rosette with the gold heart, a phrase sticker, and the label sticker stamped with the date.  Finally, it was time for me to go back in and add the greenery and leaves to the flowers.  I just adore the gold leaf trim in the Daily Diary kit, I used it in longer pieces and cut individual leaves from it as well.  It is so beautiful, I can't help using it over and over again.

Finally, I was able to use the beautiful rose gold Thickers and the mini gold letter stickers to create my title, and with that, the layout is complete.  

Thank you for stopping by today!!!  Have a great week!

Vintage Spring - Project Life Wk 11

Happy Saturday!!! Danielle here today to share with you my 2nd project using the Vintage Spring Daily Diary Kit.

This weeks theme is "Spring is in the air". We are having a bit of a late spring where I am from, but I managed to capture the sunrise one morning, showing the snow on the ground. I used the gorgeous rose gold Thickers as part of my title "Where is Spring?"

I also used the super cute puffy bird sticker from the Maggie Holmes Flourish collection as part of the "spring theme" on my project

and here are some close ups

Thanks for stopping by. Have you created anything with the Vintage Spring kits yet? If so, don't forget to share them on the Facebook Group.

Hello Gorgeous: Vintage Spring Classic Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with a layout using the classic kit.  This week we were challenged to make a spring inspired project.  I chose to make a layout about this peacock that we saw at the zoo over spring break.  Peacocks are one of my favorites!  They are so beautiful.  I wish he had opened his tail, but he didn't, so I'm happy to scrap these pictures I was able to get.

Most of this layout is made with the Maggie Holmes Flourish line from the kit.  As soon as I saw that peacock sticker, I knew these pictures would make it onto a layout.  

I wanted to let the background paper shine so I kept everything towards the center.  Up in the lefthand corner, I added the fringe banner and popped one of the felt bows on top of it.  

I layered up some of the stickers from the kit and added some sequins.

For the title, I used one of the chipboard stickers along with the black alphabet stickers.  I added another felt bow and used some stickers on top of the large peacock sticker.

I just love the spring feel of this with the colors and being outside in nature.  Please show us how you're using your April kits in the facebook group!
