"So Fun" Summer Camping Layout

I had lots of fun creating this layout. I decided on using a grid-like design since I had four square photos (I am loving printing out my Instagram photos!) and matted the pictures using patterned papers beneath and then also above and below my photos for added interest.

Everything used on this layout from the patterned papers to the embellishments is from the Summer Woods collection from SEI. My new absolute FAVORITE collection from them! I could create using this collection every time I sit down lately!! So versatile and perfect for my summer photos since we live in the Northwoods!

Summer is off to a great start here and I can't wait to scrap more of our memories along the way here and share with you. What is on your summer list of plans?

Great Outdoors Scrapbook Layout

Hi there! Stephanie here sharing a layout that features the Summer Woods collection/June Club SEI scrapbooking kit. The forest and camping design reminds me of the Pocono Mountains here in Pennsylvania. I'm not much of a camper, but recently went on a biking day trip in the Poconos. As soon as I saw this kit, I knew I wanted to use the papers and embellishments to scrapbook my biking adventure.

I'm all for keeping layouts "CAS" (clean and simple). Printing only 4x6 photos helps me put together a layout in no time at all. Using a subtle, almost-solid background and monochromatic colors (all greens here) also helps achieve the CAS look.

Whether you're camping, biking, or headed on a road trip, this kit is perfect for celebrating those summer memories made in the great outdoors!

Happy crafting,

Enjoy the Little Things Scrapbook Layout

I LOVE the big circle die-cuts from the Summer Woods collection...I had to use some on a layout and found them perfect for this simple layout design featuring just one (Instagram sized) picture. I mixed up paper collections just a bit here on this layout using some patterned papers from the Summer Woods collection and then also some from the Catalina collection. The corregated cardboard circle die-cut added a bit to the pineapple button when layered I thought.

I loved this picture of my daughter and I so wanted to keep the layout itself pretty clean and simple. I've also noticed that I tend to create simple layouts when life is busy and with the end of the school year and summer upon us, things have definitely taken up a different pace! We may be busy but I am determined to still have some time to be creative!

Adventure Graduation Cards

Graduation season is among us, and if you need a card for a graduate in your life, look no further than the June Club SEI scrapbooking kit. The theme of the Summer Woods collection is camping, but the star die-cuts and adventure-themed sentiments work great for graduation projects too.

Here are two cards I made using the papers, die-cuts and stickers from the kit. Keeping them simple makes the sentiments really pop.

"Congrats" is spelled out with alphabet stickers. Another idea: personalize the card for your graduate by spelling his or her first name or name of the school.

Hope you're feeling inspired to think beyond scrapbooking with your June kit!

Happy crafting,

Father's Day Cards

Hello! It's Kelly here sharing with you some projects made with the super cute Hello Handsome collection. This collection is perfect for anything masculine themed from Dads to birthdays, and even babies! Today, I have a couple of Father's Day cards.

For the first card, I covered about 3/4 of a note card with patterned paper. Centering the sentiment along the left side, I stitched it down. I then had lots of fun building myself a little 'dad' from the Hello Handsome sticker sheet. Next, I arranged the stickers on a die cut piece of white cardstock. I centered it on the patterned paper side of my card, and popped it up with some foam tape. To finish it up, Kraft Chip stars were added, and I topped the hat with a button.

For the second card, I created my background using 4-6x6 pieces of patterned paper. I stared by making 4 evenly spaced marks along the left side of the card (each slightly over an inch). I adhered the first piece down by lining up a corner to the top mark, and lined up the following three the same way using the first one as a guide. Next, I trimmed off the access paper. I then hot glued a vest sticker from the Hello Handsome sticker sheet to a mini wire hanger from the Sundries kit, and popped it up using foam tape onto a 3 inch circle of white cardstock. Using more foam tape, I adhered the circle to the center of my card. I then added the sentiment to the base of the circle for the finishing touch.

There you have it...a couple of cute, and easy cards for Father's Day. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
