Kit Combine Layout for The ScrapRoom

The goodies in the July/August Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit and the Patterned Paper Add-on Kit at The ScrapRoom are totally drool worthy!  My favorite thing is opening a new box of goodies each month.  As soon as I open the box I start getting ideas of what I want to create.  This month was no different!



The grid background paper is from Fancy Pants and it is in the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit. I then used all these cards that are in the July/August Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit to create a grid design. I love that the cards run over the edge of the background. Most of the stickers are from the Carta Bella sticker sheet that is also included in the kit. I then added some of the white phase stickers from a previous kit and the wood hearts and the sun die cut from my stash to finish off the page. My goal for this page was to create a pocket page feel on a traditional layout. The different kits work really well together to stretch your supplies even farther!

These layouts are a perfect example on how the kits work together.  So if you want to subscribe, make sure to grab the Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit too.  This will give you lots of extra little bits and pieces that will work with the papers and embellishments in the other kits as well!

The Adventure of Lily (Scrap Our Stash)

It is time for a new Sketch + challenge over at Scrap Our Stash.  I love being able to work with a sketch and bust my stash at the same time.  These little lists always make me think a little and in this case I was encouraged to use some twine, which has been sitting here for WAY too long!


I knew when I saw this sketch that those two index cards would be perfect to add some project life style cards to my page.  I replaced the two small photos with this single 4x6 photo.  I also needed to move my title up on the page to make room for all my journaling.  There was a story behind this snapshot that I really wanted to record.  I then finished up the page with some embellishments.  With the long title I thought that a the little banner flags with the same patterned paper would be a nice touch to draw your eyes up and across the page. For the lists I used: Simple Stories, Teresa Collins, Twine and Uniball Pen.

Summer Faves (Stuck?! Sketches)

I have the lyrics for countless songs about summer floating around in my head.  Between this page and it actually being summer here, I just can't stop the endless flow of songs.  Laura has out done herself with this latest sketch.  Make sure to head over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog to see what the design team has created and to link up your own creation for a chance to win a prize from our fabulous sponsors.

I pretty much just followed the sketch this time.  But the best part of my layout is the printed burlap "paper" that I used as my background.  I love the extra texture and dimension that it adds to the feel of the page.


Supplies - Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye, Pebbles.  Letters: American Crafts.  Embellishments: Chic Tags, Imaginisce, Pretty Little Studio.

July Pocket Pages for The ScrapRoom

It is a new month and the new kits are up over at The ScrapRoom.  I had such a great time using the goodies in the Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit for July/August.  Today I am sharing two pages that I created with these goodies.

What really sets the July/August Shots of Life kit apart is that you get part of a 6x6 paper pad from Fancy Pants Designs. I used that pad to create my own pocket style cards. The colors in this set worked perfectly with the colors from a school event for my daughter. Also in the kit are some really fun tags, I used a label on the title card that was included along with the “#ONE” tag. I finished off this page with some letter stickers, a doily and wood from my stash.

I immediately loved this fun and whimsical line from Carta Bella that is included in the July/August Shots of Life kit. Between the 4x6 and 3x4 card sheets and the matching stickers, this pocket page spread came together quickly! The wood letters are from the Carta Bella sticker sheet, but I did add extra letter stickers from my stash. I also added the sequins, clip and teal label from my stash. Sequins are a great way to add some texture to your pockets without adding bulk.

Make sure to head over to The ScrapRoom to check out this great kit along with the others.  I have found that the various kits all work together to give you more scrappy options!

Sketch Challenge at The Scrap Room

Today I am sharing a layout I created using the Shots of Life Kit and the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit along with the Sketch challenge at The ScrapRoom.  I love how the different kits allow you to mix and match them to create beautiful layouts!

Jump Start Sketch Challenge

For this page I combined the Elle’s Studio Sunny Days paper that is in the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit with a large 4x6 card that is in the July/August Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit. The colors in the Shimelle card and the Elle’s Studio papers work really well together. I loved the circles in the sketch and decided to stitch them on my page instead of using patterned paper. I finished off my page with some of the Shimelle cut-apart sheet that was included in the June Patterned Paper Add-On Kit that I had left over. The wood stars, flair and bubbles are from my stash.

Best Day Ever (Scrap Our Stash)

I am so happy to be staying on the Scrap Our Stash design team for another term!  I really love working with the challenges each month.  These are the challenges that I turn to first when I am in a scrappy funk to get my mojo flowing again.


I was really inspired by the circles and the theme of travel on this book cover.  I grabbed this picture from our trip to the tulip fields this year.  It was perfect since there are so many colors on the book cover.  I then decided to use this cut file and thought it would be great to have each circle backed with a different piece of patterned paper.  I added several circle embellishments between the cut file, enamel dots, the yellow flower and the grey puffy circle on the left side of the page.

Starbucks & Pajama Day (Stuck?! Sketches)

How is it that 2016 is already half over?!?  Either way, it is the beginning of another month, which means that there is a new sketch challenge up at Stuck?! Sketches.  After I picked out my photo I went through one of my recent scrap paper drawers and grabbed these three different pieces to layer together.  These floral die-cuts are so pretty that I became so excited when the colors looked perfect with the colors of the patterned paper.

Some days it is the little simple things that matter the most...and in this case it is a lazy morning with my daughter and of course Starbucks!


Supplies - Patterned Paper: Amy Tangerine, Simple Stories.  Doily: Recollections.  Letters: Heidi Swapp, Simple Stories, Freckled Fawn.  Embellishments: Kaisercraft, Simple Stories, Shimelle, Basic Grey, Doodlebug, Teresa Collins.
