You Are Awesome: You Go Girl Daily Diary Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with my last layout using March's You Go Girl daily diary kit.  I really wanted to use that little puffy sticker of the Boston terrier....I had a Boston was meant to be!!!  I had this picture of my sweet Brody, who passed away last April.  

For this layout, I made it 8.5x11 to go in an album I had started a few years ago and never gotten back to.  It's basically a "Stories" album where I'd like to house some special stories from our lives.  This picture of Brody is perfect to go into the album.  I used an 8.5x11 piece of navy paper with gold foil hearts on it that went really well with the 6x6 papers from the kit.

The navy foam Thickers were perfect for the color scheme.  I cut out the camera from one of the cards in the kit and put that adorable dog face in the center of the camera.  It was perfect!

The #flawless die cut was so great to use here because he was pretty flawless.  

One of the journaling cards from the kit was so great to place my journaling on.  I also pulled out a chipboard "Hello" from my stash and some navy enamel dots from my stash as well to help pull it all together.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  We can't wait to see what you're making with March's kits!

It's a great life

How are y'all doing today?

This will be my last post for a necessitates that I cut back on scrapping for a little while but hopefully in the not-too-distant future maybe I will be able to do more again. With 4 kids things can get a little hectic. I don't know how I managed years ago to take on multiple design teams and actually get everything done!

I think that maybe it's because the kids were tiny and there was this thing called nap time when I could get some things done everyday. ☺

Anyway, I've used both You Go Girl kits from this month to create this layout below:

I started with a white cardstock base like I do a lot of the time and added some spray mist in pink hues to match my girls' shirts and then added the cute x's and o's diecut mat. I layered some patterned paper, Simple Stories little squares of paper and a journaling spot from the Elle's Studio calendar cards. 

The pale pink heart was cut from another calendar card from the Daily Diary kit. I added some washi and stickers to the card with the green box at the top. 

One of my favorite parts of these March kits was the cute icons like these adorable girls, pretzels, flowers and sunshines. SO fun! 

Thank you for stopping by Noel Mignon today ♥

Stay tuned every day for more creations with the You Go Girl kits and soon the design team will share some projects with the beautiful new Vintage Spring kits.  As always, check out the store to see what other things you might like to have to go along with your kits.

Disney pages // You Go Girl Classic Kit

This week I was inspired to create some Disney pages after seeing what fellow DT member Meridy was creating with the You Go Girl kits. I have 2 pages to share today. The first is from my last trip to Disneyland last November. My son & I went for the 5k and even though we were only there for a few days we had so much fun. I mean, it's Disney! How could you not have fun, right?!
Most of my pages were created with the You Go Girl Classic Kit. Although I did use a few elements from the Daily Diary Kit. "The Best Thing" paper was actually the packaging from the Pretty Little Studio alphas. The "happiness" tag was from one of the 4x4 journaling cards that I cut down.
My second layout is actually 9x12 since that is the size album I'm using for that trip...I thought I'd mix things up a bit and deviate from the standard 12x12 size. I love this size when you're working with just 1 photo, it's much easier to manage.

Card Set using the You Go Girl Classic Kit

Hello all!  I was going through what I have left of the You Go Girl classic kit and decided to whip up a set of cards.  The chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, and rubons work great together and there is quite a few phrases that make great sentiments for cards. 

I love the smaller canvas of cards and it's always fun to pull together the little bits and pieces from the kits that might have gotten overlooked when putting together layouts.  

Hope are you using this months kits?  We always love to see what everyone is creating.  Be sure to share with us over on the Noel Mignon Members Facebook page.  

Happy Scrapping!

{Disneyland Day 2} with the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit

Hello friends, it's finally SPRING!!!!  And I'm super excited to get BOTH of the "Vintage Spring" Kits next month.  If you have not seen them yet, you should go check them out.  Until then, I have one more layout to share with you using the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit.  I really enjoyed scrapping quite a few Disneyland layouts with this kit, and the layout I'm sharing today is no exception...

I started with the frame background paper, built up my layers for my photo mat and then started adding scraps of paper, chipoard stickers, and pieces of washi tape in the frames to fill them up.

Once I felt like the background was complete, I went to work adding my title "California Adventure" with the beautiful Thickers that came in this month's kit.

Next, I worked on an embellishment cluster for the top right hand side of the layout to balance out the title area.  I used chipboard stickers, ephemera die cuts, the double sided tassles, and a flower for this embellishment cluster.  I added the subtitle "Day #2" in the same Thickers I used for the main title.

And that wraps up my layout for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Grad School: You Go Girl Daily Diary Kit

Hey!  Sarah here with a simple layout using the daily diary kit for March.  I wanted to document the fact that I decided to go back to school at the age of 39, which is scary!  The die cuts really helped me to put this together quickly.

I pulled a few papers from my stash to layer behind my photo since the last paper I have from the kit didn't really fit the look I was going for.  So I layered them up and used a full Felicity Jane paper for my background, which is a gray with a scalloped bottom.

I loved the backpack die cut from the kit and knew I could use it here since it is a school themed layout.  I also used a Pebbles puffy sticker of the coffee cup,  

I used the square die cuts in a grid pattern to embellish the left side of the layout.  I felt that the quotes on them were perfect for this layout.  The "You Got This" is cut from one of the 6x6 papers from the kit and layered on top of a die cut where I didn't need the quote, so I covered it up with a better one for the layout.

I used a long title!  I put the "Grad School" in white to highlight that as my overall title and the rest I used the navy Thickers.  I really like the look of the title.  The Pink Paislee butterflies helped to anchor the journaling.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I can't wait to see how you are using your March kits!

Welcome spring

Hello again!

It's always great to be here to share projects with you that I make using Noel's kits.

The You Go Girl kits are gorgeous- and if you think so, you should see the kits for April. They are so beautiful. You will love them ♥

Anyway, for my project today I decided to create a piece of home decor using bits from both of the You Go Girl kits:

I started with this wooden piece from Jillibean Soup Mix the Media that I found at my local Walmart store.

I cut some flowers out of cardstock using my Silhouette diecutting machine and then covered those with patterned paper from the kits. I also cut the word "welcome" to use on this project. I layered the diecut flowers with Prima paper flowers found in both of the in the kits this month.

The butterflies are from a sheet of patterned paper in the Classic kit. I simply cut around them and glued them onto the project.

I finished off this simple project with a strip of gold scalloped washi tape from the washi book included in the kit. 

Thanks for stopping by Noel Mignon today ♥

Sweet Moments

Hey all! I'm here with  another layout using the You Go Girl kits. This week I'm combining elements from the Classic and Daily Diary Kits...something I always love to do!
The background paper is from the Classic Kit and all of the embellishments are from the Daily Diary Kit. There were lots of fun little die cut shapes and embellishments to choose from!
The stamp is from the classic kit and helped fill in that space to the right of my photo. Tip: The words on this roller stamp are very small so be sure to lightly tap on your stamp pad and test on a scratch piece of paper.

Unicorns Exist with the You Go Girl Classic Kit

Happy Tuesday!  I have really enjoyed creating with this months kit and have made quite a few fun projects.  I decided though to make an actual scrapbook page this week.  A few of the products in the kit reminded me of a few cakes I have made lately at my new job and I thought it would be fun to document the trend of unicorns that seems to be making an appearance everywhere. 

I started with my title.  I used a combination of chipboard stickers and a Silhouette machine cut.  I then backed this with pattern paper and a tag. 

I then started layering my photos and pattern paper strips on the bottom.  Placing a few bits of washi tape down and tucked in the date. 

Once I had placed all my elements I began to embellish with rubons, chipboard stickers, and a rhinestone brad to dot the "i" in my title. 

I decided the left hand side needed something so I took a couple of pattern papers and placed them along the side and topped the corner with an old photo corner from my stash. 

I love how all the colors and supplies work in this months kit and it was fun to use a feminine color palette.  What are you making with this months kit?  Be sure to share with us over on the Noel Mignon Member Facebook group. 

Happy Crafting!

{Meeting Belle} Layout with the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit

Hello, it's Meridy here, and I have another Disney layout to share with you using the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit.  I loved the butterfly paper that came in the kit, and I immediately knew I wanted to fussy cut the butterflies from the paper.  So that's what I did for today's layout.

I popped the butterfly wing up with small pop dots to add dimention.  Naturally, the butterflies are the focal point of ths layout but I also used a couple of layers layered some cardstock with packaging from the embellishments.  I used a piece of the gold washi to seperate the patterned paper on the top portion of the layout from the bottom portion of cardstock.

I stamped the journaling lines right onto the layout and added a few phrase stickers around the photo.

I created my title with a stamped tag I made and the mini alphabet stickers from last month's kit.  I used some stickers and a small strip of the bow washi from the kit to embellish my title.

The layout itself is really fairly simple, since the butterflies add such a punch.  Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
