Happy and Sweet

I have some more bright goodness for you on the blog today! I hope it hasn’t gotten old yet! Today’s project is a layout of one of my favourite people on earth. Although she lives half way across the world, you don’t have to see this sweet heart often to remember her kindness. She is my Tante Sveta. In the culture I grew up in, people did not have to be your biological relatives to be your uncle and aunt. And since Tante Sveta and her husband were good friends of  my parents they became my Uncle and Aunt.

She’s all the lovely you can imagine and happy all the time.

The bright pink heart paper is from Pink Paislee’s, Oh My Heart line. Who would have thought that I would ever go for hot pink?! I guess anything is possible right?

The letters I used in this little excerpt are from Shimelle’s Little by Little sticker pack, placed on a Becky Higgins, Project Life card. I picked up quite a few of these cards from Love is in the Details and used a handful for the background.

The “so very beautiful” die cut is from Shimelle, as is the tiny turquoise puffy flower sticker. While the Little by Little line is fairly colourful, there are quite a few monochrome pieces in it as well, such as the “&” sign partially tucked under the previously mentioned die cut.

A little something not so overused by this crafter though, are the sewing accents. I’ve been wanting to sew on my projects for quite a while, but I don’t own a sewing machine (quite yet…fingers crossed, soon!) and so it doesn’t happen too often. I love when different fields of art mix though, sewing, paper, mixed media, and so on. What are some of your favourite mediums to create art?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!!!

Days on the Beach…

Hi everybody!  I’m not a Project Lifer, but I do see the appeal for families with children at home and all the activities they bring.  I wish it had been a thing when my own were young and keeping us busy.   I also love a lot of the “product” that is made for pocket page documenting, so earlier this summer, when I was in the store, I picked up a couple of sheets of paper designed specifically for pocket pages.  And decided I would use them on a regular scrapbook layout.

That’s what you see here.  Notice the two 3″x4″ panels above the photos?  Those are cut from the Kaisercraft paper line called Sandy Toes.  There are a few designs but the back side of the water paper I used here is all 4″x6″ panels for use in pocket pages.  The same is true for the graphic paper on the lower part of the layout.

This layout gave me the chance to pull out some of the “beach vacation” stash I’ve been hoarding, as well as some newer bits and pieces I’ve just acquired.  Because all the random embellishments could tend to distract and overwhelm, I tried to create uniformity by keeping to a limited color palette.  Obviously the colors in the paper line pointed in the obvious direction, but not as obvious is the pop of orange (which is a complimentary color to the blue, and so is a logical choice, design-wise.

I didn’t have anything in particular to say on this layout;  it’s just another page documenting my appreciation for a good beach/vacation day, so in the absence of lines of thoughtful, insightful journaling, I adhered a few of the mini word and phrase stickers by Authentique - Petite Diction.  LOVE those things!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’re getting a chance to get scrappy!
