First Day of School with Charlotte

Hi there!

Good morning! It's Charlotte here with another layout to share with you that I did using the Nov/Dec kit. For this layout, I used some photos of Noah's first day of kindergarten! He was such a big boy going to school for the first time!


I thought it would be fun to cut out a library pocket as it's kind of school themed. The card inside contains some hidden journaling that I did. It was fun embellishing it with some of the goodies from the kit! I love that they are so versatile and can be used on a variety of different themed layouts! The papers also were chosen from several of the different themes offered in the kit!


Thanks for taking a peek at my layout! Remember there is a sketch challenge going on right now! Make sure to link up your projects on the side bar! Happy Scrapping!

Thanks for visiting!

boyz rule with Laura

Hi there!

Laura here sharing another page today using the fabulous November / December 2014 kit!

The warm earth tones are just  perfect for this time of year when we are focusing on family and snuggling in!


I love this picture of my boys, they were so young, and looked so happy together - this is a few years old now and I think it is high time they do another group shot for mom!

I went a little distress crazy with this page of my boys, it is not too often that I employ this technique now a days, but always fun to go back to on occasion.


Other than adding some doodling and stitching, I really had fun mixing up the elements from the kit.


Are you loving these cork hearts as much as I am?  And self adhesive too!


And what about this fabulous tree clip! LOVE!


And the Jillibean Soup kraft tags = amazing!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Home is Where the Heart Is with Laura

Hi there!

Laura here today sharing a page using the Simple Stories Legacy pieces from the latest kit and the freebie Silhouette cut file that I shared with you all at the end of November!


My husband ad I inherited a giant tote of photos after my mother-in-law passed away and we spent some time in October sorting through them, I pulled out these photos of my husband and his parents shortly after his adoption.  I love the way these vintage photos look with this collection.  I also love seeing how enamored these new parents were with their lovely new baby!


I designed these cut files especially for this page, I love the way they look with the other elements from the kit.


I also had some fun with the Legacy and DIY stickers, as well as the clips and clear clocks.

** Note -  I added some cardstock to my kit for this layout and the next few I will be revealing, in an attempt to stretch the kit even further, as I just love these papers!

Thank you for visiting!

Sketch Challenge with Charlotte

 Hi there!

It's Charlotte here again with another layout to share with you. For this layout,  I used a sketch done by Lynn. Here is the awesome sketch she did...


And here is the layout that I created using it...


I used lots of the Carta Bella Warm and Cozy Patterned Papers and Stickers that are in the Nov/Dec kit. One thing I like to do is back my stickers on some co-ordinating cardstock. It serves 2 purposes for me. One, it lets me move them around until I'm happy with where they are and two, it makes them pop a little off the page and gives a little more dimension.

 
That's it for today!   I hope you play along wit this challenge, we cannot wait to see what you create!

Charlotte

PS... Remember that there is another sketch challenge going on right now! Make sure to link up your layout through the links found on the side bar!

A freebie Silhouette Cut File with Laura

Hi there!

I have a freebie cut file that I am sharing today, I designed it to coordinate with the Simple Stories Legacy pieces of the current kit. Enjoy!

click on image to go to my download page

I will be sharing a page using this cut file shortly.

By the way, several people have asked my opinion about downloading the newest Silhouette software,  I think you definitely should, it is fabulous and if you are worried about the glitches that were a problem when it was first released I think you will be fine. I helped some ladies update this past weekend and we had no issues.

Thanks for visiting!
