Felicity Kit

With Daylight Savings Time now in effect, surely Spring is just around the corner? One thing we can be sure of, the longer and brighter daylight hours means warmer weather will find it’s way to us soon. It’s almost time to shed our heavy winter coats and boots for spring jackets and umbrellas. This kit is sure to getting you thinking all about springtime!

April Fun

These papers and embellishments are from Pinkfresh Studio’s Felicity line. They embody Spring, new growth, and happier, warmer days ahead! This double page layout captures the essence of Spring – time to get outside and PLAY in the warmth of the sunshine. Time to celebrate the end of winter, new growth and life all around us. Your kit includes multiple pre-cut electronic cut files to complement your layouts. The first of these cut files is “April fun”, and it sets the stage for the theme of this kit. You will also find a generous package of card stock die cuts that you will utilize throughout the 4 page kit. Several small wood veneer embellishments complement and complete this layout.

You Make Me Happy

The title alone in this layout, is enough to make anyone smile! Bold titles make a statement, and this title clearly sets the tone for this fun layout. This page utilizes the “Ombre Wall” patterned paper and again, many of the card stock die cuts supplied with the kit. Makes you want to go out and blow some bubbles, doesn’t it?

Happy Little Moments

The “Happy Little Moments” page blends two bold papers together with the use of a “heart wreath” cut file. All the backs of the hearts have been resized and die cut to allow you quick and seamless assembly for a beautiful page. More card stock die cuts, a washi sticker and multiple wood veneer hearts help you complete this fun springtime page.

Yes, PLEASE Kit

I’m long overdue for highlighting another kit for Younique Scrapbook Store. My Mind’s Eye, “Yes, PLEASE” paper kit was the perfect backdrop to highlight the Surprise Birthday party we hosted for my husband’s 60th birthday. These papers and embellishments are beautifully set in black, white, cream and gold tones. Each kit contains gorgeous patterned papers, versatile stickers, 12″ x 12″ printed Chipboard Elements, “Copper Shimmer” twine and a 56 count “Mixed Bag” of embellishments to match. This collection will lend itself to showcasing many of the special moments in your life – the possibilities are endless.

Folding Star

The cut file on this page is just stunning. Once completed, this page can be displayed perfectly in a shadow box, frame or your scrapbook. Each of the folding stars are backed with papers from the Yes, PLEASE line. The extensive collection of embellishments included in this kit allow you to highlight and document any special occasion.

Hanging Banner

The falling hearts on this page were simply too beautiful to hide. I used them as the backdrop to display and build my own banner using Copper Shimmer twine as the “clothesline” that pulls it all together. The foundations on the banner are the photo frame and the stunning rosette you’ll create from additional cut files included in the kit. Several individual chipboard banners complete the end to end banner on this page. Choose to top it all off with the embellishments shown, or the pick your own from the multitude included.

Geo Globe

The Geo Globe cut file, from The Cut Shoppe is the focus of this fun page. All pieces, frame and backgrounds, are pre-cut and included in your kit. You can choose to follow my design for completion, or add your own pictures and embellishments from the kit. Truly, the possibilities with this kit are endless.

Heart Banner

The last cut file included in the kit is the “Polaroid Frame Banner Hearts”, a Paige Evans creation. I love the whimsy and flexibility of this file. It provides the opportunity to include many pictures of friends and family that attended the big event. The clothes pegs are die cut in gold to help tie the colour theme across all pages.

Beautiful Dreamer

Bo Bunny has a dreamy line of papers called Beautiful Dreamer. The colour scheme is soft, romantic and well, dreamy! The possibilities for scrapbooking and card making are endless with this line. This kit contains 3 single page layouts, and one double page layout. While the lure of riding a bike is simply not my thing (ask some of my best friends!), the bicycle patterned paper simply called my name immediately. The soft purple and green tones are warm and inviting. To raise the bar on this layout, I’ve added flowers and pearls to the bike basket and wrapped the title around the wheel of the bike. This layout was the perfect background to a recent photo of my husband and I.  I’m tickled with the overall result.

Enjoy the Ride with picture

The second layout is titled “Spread Your Wings and FLY”. The backdrop for this layout is the Illusion patterned paper. Those birds and books are so interesting and visually appealing. I chose to use pictures of my granddaughter Maddy as she prepared for her final ballet recital in June. She took her set of wings, and I was lucky enough to capture a couple of quick photos before she changed her mind and took them off before the recital began. With or without wings, she made a very sweet ballerina. I love the soft feel this layout creates.

Spread Your Wings with pictures

The last single layout is titled Beautiful Dreamer and uses the patterned paper by the same name. Green and burgundy pearls, brads, gold accents and organza ribbon all add to create a light and airy feel.

BEAUTIFUL dreamer with pictures

The final 2 page layout in this kit uses two coordinating patterned papers. You will find so many things to embellish this kit with, including a full sticker page, chipboard package,  die cut package and a 12″ x 12″ letter and number sticker sheet by Bella BLVD. For this layout, I decided to highlight our visit to the Eiffel Tower, a dream I never imagined would come true! Paris is a wonderfully romantic city, and the perfect setting for this layout.

DREAM with pictures

I hope this kit inspires you to scrapbook. It’s a perfect combination for the romantic, travel or precious moments in your life. This kit will be available soon at the Younique Scrapbook store in Mount Forest.

Happy Scrappin’

This Guy

I’m so excited to share this kit with you! PHOTOPLAY’s “This Guy” line of papers and embellishments is the perfect lineup to showcase that special man in your life. Whether it be your husband, father, son, uncle,  or grandfather, this paper lineup will give you the masculine feel you need to highlight the men who mean so much to you.

Those of you who know me, know that I am extremely proud of our son Sean. Sean is a Corporal in the Army and he is posted in Edmonton. He is passionate about his career choice and his commitment to our country. What more could a Mom ask for? His commitment has meant sacrifices for all of us, but he serves with pride and focus.

Naturally, when I received the “This Guy” lineup of products, it was an easy decision to build my layouts featuring Sean. This double page layout focuses on the patterned papers in the line. Additions to this page include some stickers, a masculine washi tape and smart black enamel embellishments.

My Hero with Pictures

These pictures are a compilation of photos taken during our recent trip to visit Sean and his wonderful girlfriend Megan. Thank you for putting others before yourself everyday Sean. You will always be “My Hero”.

The “Play Hard” layout incorporates additional patterned papers, stickers and hand stitching to add dimension. When I saw these two stickers, I instantly knew what picture I would use! I must say, there are advantages to no longer doing your kids laundry!! What endurance and determination. I treasure another picture of Sean crossing the finish line of the Spartan Race, laughing and smiling. What an accomplishment!

You Light up My Life with Pictures

The last layout is simple, yet makes a clear statement. One of the many things I love so much about Sean, is that he makes me laugh every single time we talk. These layouts are a treasure to me.

When you complete your kit, you’ll find you have plenty of paper and stickers left over to create several masculine cards. The opportunities are as limitless as your imagination.

Who do you treasure and wish to showcase in your scrapbooks? With Father’s Day quickly approaching, you’ll find this is a great kit to highlight the special men in our lives. Look for this kit soon at Younique Country Retreat and Too Younique.

Happy Scrappin’!

Fun in the Sun

It’s the last day of April and I’m gearing up for lots of “Fun in the Sun” this summer! Summer is a special time for us. A chance to return to our family cottage on the Severn River. I was so fortunate to spend my summers growing up on the Severn, and also fortunate to let my children do the same. Now I am blessed to share that experience with my grandchildren. There’s really nothing quite like reliving it through the eyes of a child!

Bella BLVD’s “Fresh Market” papers are an excellent backdrop to showcasing the highlights of our last summer up north. Our cottage is boat access only, and Maddy and Owen love to go out in the boat every single day. One of their favourite boat rides is to travel down to the marina and get ice cream. What could be better on a hot summer day?!

Fun in the Sun w Pictures

This double page layout will teach you a new technique with floss. The combination of patterned papers and die cuts, give this layout a light, airy, and fun feel. The kit makes use of many stickers, including many border stickers and lettering.

Today is a Happy Day w Pictures

“Today is a Happy Day” pretty much sums it all up. Two playful die cut scalloped borders and colourful floss help compliment the feel of this page. This just makes me want to go out and play!

Sweet Summer w Pictures

The last page in this kit continues to emphasize having fun outdoors. Paper and sticker borders are utilized once again, including the use of the stems for the pinwheels. Pinwheels just call you to come and play outside – so take some time to document your “fun in the sun”, and enjoy the results for years to come!

This kit and more are available at Younique and Too Younique! Watch out for more kits coming soon. Lots of great things in the works!

Little Man

The Echo Park “Little Man” collection designed by Lori Whitlock is a winner. I had so much fun working with this line and of course highlighting some favourite pictures of our grandson Owen!

Could You Be Any Cuter_w Pictures

This bright bold red background was the perfect patterned paper for our little man and his blue raincoat and green boots. The world is just full of mystery and discovery for little boys, and Owen is no exception. ALWAYS running and exploring, this little boy keeps us on our toes. I made use of lots of stickers from this collection, added some green enamel dots and stitched an outline around the larger stars for a little more dimension.

Next up, another bold one page layout featuring lots of patterned paper in this line.

He's All Boy w Pictures

To enhance the pie chart, I used more of the blue and white twine and multiple stickers. The “he’s all boy” title is die cut right into the background paper and backed with white for impact. This picture of Owen was taken in 2014, and perfectly fit the feel of this page.

And lastly, for something a little softer and dreamier, another one page layout totally focused on the star theme. When You Wish Upon a Star w PicturesThese two star papers from the collection really inspired this design. You may have noticed that the cut out star from the top blue paper, was utilized in the two page layout featured earlier. The stitching theme was carried throughout all 3 pages, but you could easily modify by using a marker if stitching just isn’t your thing. The layout was completed with a fitting die cut title, also included in your kit.

The Little Man kit, and others are available now at Younique, Too Younique and Younique Scrapbooking and Crafts, the newest edition in Mount Forest. Go check it out!

It’s a Boy

For all of those with a special little man in their life! Echo Park’s “Bundle of Joy Boy” papers and stickers will help you commemorate this special time in your life.
