A Charmed LIfe!

Sharing a layout I created with one of my most favorite lines of paper ever today!  A Charmed Life by Simple Stories!  I was so thrilled when I found it was in the collection in the July Album kit at My Creative Scrapbook!!
I have to confess that typically the paper I used as a background paper for this layout, usually intimidates me.  I never quite know how to use it, so most of the time I wont.  But I wanted to challenge myself just in case there are others like me!
 This was the last project that I created with the kit, so I took most of my scrap paper I had left and layered them under my photo.  Added some die cuts, sequins and Mister Hueys mist that is included in the kit...and this is what I got!
I think the key to using this paper is to incorporate the wording into the layout, I did this by adding the embellishments around it!

I think I mentioned earlier that if you don't have the Simple Stories DIY collection you need to get it now!  It is so easy and fun to play with, plus it works with so many different types of photos!
When I got the kit, I instantly thought of a photo I wanted to use!!
I love paper with words on it, and even though it is not a graffiti look I think that by adding the mist it gives it the exact look I was going for!  The kit comes with a stencil and since I had already added the mist I wanted to do something different with it.  So I just used a fine black pen and traced it!

Simply Amazing!

This month the Creative Kit at My Creative Scrapbook features the DIY collection by Simple Stories.  If you don't have this collection, you need it!!  The combination of the bright colors with the black & white is amazing!!  So much fun to play with!
 The layout I am sharing today I created with just two pieces of the pattern paper!! 
The background paper, a white/grey woodgrain pattern, the other paper was all the frames that I cut up!  So simple and easy to make but I love the way it turned out!! 
Here is a close up of the title and some of the frames layered!!

Be-You (tiful) Mini Album

 Today I am sharing a mini album I created for The Curtsey Boutique!! 
The base of the album is made with kraft bags that are 5x7.5, these are available in the Etsy store!
For the cover I used products from WE R Memory Keepers Anthologie line.  The doily, bow and glassine bag are all products that The Curtsey Boutique carry.

 As you can see the bows and the doilies are available in an assortment of colors!  The burlap butterfly is also available at the shop!

A Charmed LIfe Mini Album :)

I cant tell you how thrilled I was to find out that the July Album kit at My Creative Scrapbook featured A Charmed Life collection!  This is one of my most favorite lines of paper ever!  I love everything about it, the awesome color combo, the fun patterns, but most of all I adore that is says LUCKY & CHARMED all over!!
I am going to share the mini album I created along with some tips on how I created each page! All of the pages have some sort of pocket, that is the easiest way I know to add photos to a mini album and be able to add all the fun embellishments! 
Here is a pic of the competed mini album.  The ribbon on the binding was originally a pale yellow, I used the Mister Huey's mist to color it!

Here is the cover.  Lots of layers and light distressing.  I also misted the flower, it was originally white.

 On this page I cut some of the elements from the pattern paper and layered them to create a pocket.  The orange and green photo mats easily slide out for photos and/or journaling.  Also I cut a corner of the doily and misted it for another layer.

More layering and distressing using the pattern paper and die cuts that come in the kit.  I used a border punch to the 3x4 journaling card for fun!  The journaling is my pocket for the photo mats. I created this pocket by only adding my adhesive on the left side and the bottom of the card.

This is my favorite page in the album!  I cut out the LUCKY from the pattern paper, layered it on top of the polaroid die cut and used that for my pocket to hold my photo mats!

Lots of fussy cutting elements from the paper for this page!  I layered them all together to create the pocket here.

  I used another journaling card to create a pocket on this page.  To create the window I punched the scallop circle, filled a sandwich bag (cut down to size) with some of the  Studio Calico sequins that are included in the kit, adhered the bag shut and then adhered it to the back of the card.  I added a piece of cardstock behind the window to give it a solid background so you could see the sequins better.  I popped the entire card up with dimensional adhesive. 

The last page, I used a banner that I created from the pattern paper for the base of my pocket. I layered some elements I cut from the pattern paper and die cuts, along with another misted flower.  I added another corner of the doily and my album is done!
