Keeping Track of 2012 :: Sky High + Video

Hey there!! I have a bright layout to share with you today!
I used the Studio Calico November Kit and an addon :)
I did pull some of my own supplies for this layout, and here is what I picked!

The washi tape, sequins, thread, spray, thickers and the orange and green letter stickers are all from my stash.
Here is the making process!
And here is a closer look at the finished layout!
I have seen some layouts similar to this with the arrows going around the photo, and for this one I did get inspired by one of the guest designers over at Studio Calico. I love the way this layout turned out!
I have to say that these skinny white thickers are probably some of my favorites. I love how tall they are so you can still see the title loud and clear, yet they are so skinny that its easy to make a longer title with these if you have to! The October Afternoon letter stickers were perfect for adding my title. I knew I wanted some more color and these bad boys were perfect for that!
I love adding a pop of color to the corner of layouts!
The arrows took some time. I had to stamp and cut out each one then sew each one on. I love the way it looks though and it adds so much to this page!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!

Keeping Track of 2012 :: Kitty Love + Video!

Hello once again!
I have another layout to share with you!
This page was made from the Studio Calico November kit plus an addon!
Here are the supplies I pulled from those kits...

Here is the making process!
And here is a closer look at the finished layout!
I've never used this color combo before and I've never even worked with navy blue on a scrapbooking page. I love the way it turned out! This was one of the main reasons I  wanted to start recieving kits... I love the challenge of using something that I wouldn't have purchased on my own!
It seems like printed vellum is making its way back into the scrapbooking world and I love working with it! It's great for layering and for pockets!
One thing I was most excited about for this kit were these feather wood veneer pieces! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them but it didn't take long for them to find a spot on this layout, I love the way they look with glitter!!
I struggled with the title on this one. I realized those glitter stickers were small enough to use with that cute Love ticket and figured I'll combine the two for my title :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Washington Layout :: On The Road + Video!

Back again with another Washington layout!
Here are the supplies I pulled for this layout!

It seems to me I am having an arrow theme for this album lol. I know arrows are pretty popular in
the scrapbooking world at the moment and they sure did get me with them!
I love how something so simple like arrows and add more attention to certain areas on a layout!
And onto the making...
Here is a closer look at the finished page!
I love using these large photos! These photos were taken from the car driving back to Seattle from my Aunts house. I was so pleased with the way they came out. A little tip is to take tons of photos of the same scene. This works out for me pretty well since I am a little picky and I've learned my lesson from snapping only one shot and having it turn out bad. :)
Here is a closer look at the title! I love these thickers with the map print on them! Perfect for travel pages! These Thickers were the inspiration for this whole page! I love finiding inspiration in my supplies. I loved the hints of green they have on these letters and realized I had paint and ink that matched. I liked how the yellow looked with the green, it helped keep this whole page on the bright side!
Yes I realize the photo is sticking up :( I fixed that though lol. I take my layouts outside to get better lighting for them and it was pretty hot, the sun lifted the corner, but thats ok it's an easy fix!
I love those little hexagon stickers. I bought them not knowing what I was going to do with them but they add a little something and are great for layering! I somewhat used this "click" stamp as my form of journaling. Since I didn't add pockets or a place to write I figured these photos and this stamp can do the talking. The photo of my grandma in the car reminds me of when I took these pictures and the stamp reminds me of how many I took LOL.
And now onto the fun little cluster. (I know it looks like it says "his way" but it says "this way" I promise lol). So I really thought that I wouldn't use this badge because seeing it alone and knowing I haven't been to those places wasn't that appealing to me. Once I started to pull all the supplies for this layout I realized it wasn't as bad as I thought and actually loved the way it looks. It ties in nicely with the title of the page. Overall I love how this little cluster turned out. I am pleased with the colors for this page!
What was the last thing you scrapbooked about? Love to hear what you are working on!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day :)
