November 2013 Kit Reveal

HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!!  It poured last night, so I am hoping that means the storm has moved on because I have bowls of candy to hand out to my trick-or-treators.  I can't wait!! I love handing out candy and seeing all those cute kids dressed up.  I live in one of those neighborhoods where car loads of kids get dropped off to come through the neighborhood.  Because it's a school night, I'm expecting the kids to start coming by early, so I'm taking off work a little early.  :)

Now on to the kit reveal!!  The November kit features My Mind's Eye, Lost & Found, Record It papers.  They are so gorgeous!!  I've mixed in a few Studio Calico wood veener pieces, some Prima Ingvild Bolme Junkyard Findings Heart Gears and May Arts lace and wax cording, and lets not forget the lovely MME chipboard sheet and a few other goodies.  The kit is in the store and ready to purchase here

Thanks for stopping by!  If you have any questions, please email me at

November 2013 Kit - Sneak Peek

Hi everyone, here's a sneak peek of the November 2013 kit.  The kit features papers from My Mind's Eye, Lost & Found record it, "Heirloom" and "Antique" collections.  You may first look at the collections and think Valentine's, but with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I see beautiful layouts made to show how thankful you are for the loves of your live, and so many other possibilities. 

A complete listing will be available later tonight. Thanks for taking a peek!

Family Photo Layout - October Kit #2

Here is a layout I created with the October 2013 Our Story Kit #2, which features Webster's Pages Family Traditions papers.  I really had a fun time creating the layered frame and decorating the pocket.  I used a piece of a priority box to layer my photo on.  I punched a hole at the top of the Maya Road kraft tags and inked the edges, then I cut a length of the orange lace and ripped it in half lengthwise to give it a more rustic feel, they are tucked in behind the pocket for hidden journaling.  I added a few splashes of white acrylic paint and some My Mind's Eye Enamel dots for just a spot of color on the background.  I also tinted the yellow foam alphas with just a bit of Tea Dye Distressed Ink by Tim Holtz. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Oh on the look out for  a sneak peek at November's kit which will be posted later today.  :)

Miss Holly

Hi everyone, I am sharing a layout I made with you today using the Tres Belle Kit #1.  This layout is about the sweetest little fur baby my daughter was recently given.   My daughter named her Holly, and she is just so adorable.  I used a paper punch to punch the edges of Petaloo flower petals to give them a softer look.  I also used Ranger's Glossy Accents on the chipboard buttons, love how they turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and taking look.

Sara's final project with the September Kit

Hi everyone, here is my final layout using the September kit.   I just love creating lots of layers using all of the die cuts and fun chipboard pieces.  I found the wooden veneer card was the perfect spot to create a title.  For the background I used Side B of the "Word Up" paper and turned it upside down to take advantage of the fun colorful border strip along the bottom of the papers.  The Daily Routine border strip is from the backside of the "On the Edge" paper.  I placed it at an angel across the top of the page to give the layout a little movement.  I then stenciled a design using modeling paste and a few drops of green water color paint to add a little pop of color.  I created this layout about my daughter who has a very big decision to make about leaving her home, family, friends and most importantly her boyfriend (hopefully soon to be finance) to attend school in another state for a couple of years to get her Master's Degree. 

Thnaks for stopping by to take a look, I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

More September Projects!

Hi there, I'm back to share the rest of my layouts using the wonderful September kit from LRS. Did I mention how nicely coordinated this kit is?  I think it's one of my favorite kits so far!

This first layout is of our friends' daughter, Olivia.  It has a lot of embellishment layering and machine stitching and I let the background patterned paper do most of the work for me!

Layout number two is of me taken during my very first half marathon earlier this year.  I don't often add memorabilia items to my layouts but I decided to add my number to commemorate the occasion.  This is one of those bucket list items that I can check off that I may never do again! I altered the alphas with paint to match them to my layout.

My final layout "Family volleyball champs" is of my sister-in-laws and friends taken at a family get-together last summer.  Whenever we're all together there's always some sort of competition between the guys and gals.  This time it happened to be a volleyball game that gals won...well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Anyway, more stitching, more embellishment layering, and more altered letters on this layout.  So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the rest of my layouts with you!  Don't forget to stop by the LRS store and pick up a September kit before they're all sold out!!
