Right Now Mini Book by Kristin

Hi there! Kristin here!

This is a mini-album I put together with The Awesome Ladies Project in mind.

The monthly storytelling theme was ‘Right-Now’ and so I put together an album that reflected how I’m feeling in my life right now.

I used the January Embellishment kit for this album. The album was put together with chipboard covers, cardstock, and binder rings. I added some photos throughout. I used journaling cards and stickers from this month’s kit. Again, the bright colors were absolutely perfect against the dreary winter blues I’ve been feeling.

XO,

Kristin

Make a Wish Layout Process Video by Soraya

Hey everyone!

The lovely Soraya has a gorgeous new layout to share with you. She made this using the January embellishment kit. Soraya was kind enough to put together a process video for us! It’s in French, but it’s easy to follow along even if you don’t speak French. Enjoy!

 

Here are some more pics of her gorgeous layout:

Happy crafting!

Ring in the New Year Layout by Megan

Our holidays are a little over the top (six family holiday parties in three days–and we hosted three of them!), so we love to spend New Year’s Eve not doing much of anything. We make a big dinner, play games, watch movies, and take a big family selfie when midnight (or, in this year’s case, New York midnight) rolls around. I love these silly photos and always have a lot of fun documenting them.

The Freckled Fawn January 2017 Embellishment Kit and Fresh Start Journaling Cards were perfect for this page!

Here’s how I used the kit:

Our foster daughter was making hilarious faces, so the engraved wood “so funny” quote was just the thing for the negative space in this photo. I love tucking embellishments into the corners of photos. It’s an especially good trick to use if your photos are all similar.

Tucked into another photo corner is one of the paper stickers, which just happened to both have a perfect sentiment and match Jonas’s shirt. Unless I’m centering a sticker like this on a card, I usually trail it over the edge of a photo and cut off the excess. This helps ground it so it doesn’t look like it’s floating around.

I added one more embellishment set to a photo to create a visual triangle of photo embellishments. The foam word “loved” framed in hearts popped well against the background of our dark shirts!

The cards that match this kit are amazing and didn’t really need anything extra, but I thought it would be fun to add a few enamel triangle stickers over their corresponding triangles on this card for a bit of extra pop!

I also used a circle punch to cut out the “fresh start” circle from one card to add it to the pinwheel card (which is my favorite–I love all of the colorful pinwheels in this kit!).

How do you celebrate the New Year? Do you grab someone to kiss? Dress up and go to a fancy party? Pop a bottle of champagne? Curl up and read and try to ignore the noisy fireworks outside? I’d love to hear!
