Our home internet was down for a week and a half and it's amazing how tied technology is with scrapbooking. I missed being able to post here and wasn't able to turn in some assignments. It's the little things that get us sometimes.
Because I haven't been able to post I have a few things to share with you that I will post over the next few days. First off, a layout that I made using the Oh Deer! collection from Fancy Pants.
We had a little bit of snow last week and it was just enough to get me in the mood to scrap Christmas pages. The Oh Deer! collection is just the right mix of fun and traditional. I like the bits of blue thrown in with the red and green and the embellishments are adorable!
I love that we have a day to spend at home this week!
Gymnastics meet is pretty much over for my daughter, we don't have a meet today, we don't have to go out of town, we can sleep in (it's barely after 7 and two of my kids are already up), ha ha.
I am excited to get to scrap a little today. I've missed that.
Today I have a BasicGrey page to share. The blog has been down but I wanted to go ahead and share this project with you that I made using the Aurora collection.
We had a Harry Potter party for my Hailey for her 10th birthday, complete with a candy shoppe, sorting ceremony, wand making and a potions class.
This is a really basic page design; I am liking white space more and more these days. I wanted the focus to be on the pictures of Hailey.
I used some small metal dies to cut the stars (sadly my Cameo machine hasn't been working) from an assortment of patterned papers from Aurora. I mixed in some gold sequins for fun and because I love the extra sparkle.
Have a fantastic weekend!
What are your plans?
I think we need a giveaway again soon. What do you think? What would you like to see?
For the layout I am sharing today I used items from the Early Autumn kit from Noel Mignon as well as some bits and pieces I had sitting on my table from recent projects:
The papers and "my smile begins with you" are from the Noel Mignon kit and I added some Pebbles Inc. tape (gold scallop, numbers), a cork "xoxo" and banner shape I'd cut out for something else but didn't use, some stars from a BasicGrey project, some twine, a doily, a gold glitter heart from the new Maggie Holmes line, a cardstock title piece (can't remember where this was from?). The copper-colored tape at the top of the page is from My Mind's Eye.
I don't know how you are with scrapping holiday and birthday pictures but I tend to do everyday pictures more often than those "event" ones, which is why I am just now scrapping pictures from last Halloween.
Stay tuned next year for pictures from this year, ha ha.
I will try to do better and maybe get them done this year.
For today I have a page to share that I made for Noel Mignon kit club using the Early Autumn kit:
I LOVE the Fancy Pants sequins in this kit and used them to make a fun border on my page.
The "Early Autumn" kit from Noel Mignon this month features lots of beautiful pieces from the Fancy Pants True Friend collection. Some of us from the Noel Mignon design team were asked to create a project for their October newsletter.
This is the layout that I created that is in the newsletter released yesterday. I shared more details on the Noel Mignon blog today.
