Good morning, friends! Spring break was a little more eclectic than I was planning, so I never made it back with additional posts – but I’m ready to start back up this week. These layouts are one of the options for my April scrapbooking class.
I used the Some Kind of Wonderful Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking kit. This kit includes a paper packet, complements, white twine and a package of black and white dots. Often, I just follow the guide designed for the kit – easy-peasy… but this month, I wanted to add some stamping.
Close to My Heart has designed scrapbooking and cardmaking stamp sets specifically to coordinate with each featured paper packet. I thought the Some Kinda Wonderful Scrapbooking stamp set would be great for telling the story of my family getting a cat (the cat I was never going to own!!!!).
Between the stamp set and the complements, I had everything i needed to convey the friendship that’s developed between my son & his cat and all the happiness the little kitty brought!
This layout really didn’t need a lot of colored papers – using the stamps to create a slight background on the White Daisy cardstock, I really only needed a few pieces to frame the pictures.
My next layout just has some pictures of my son when he was 1 1/2 – showing off his fish tank, being cool in his shades and hanging out with his best friend at the time – Mickey. This time I used some of the green paper for a large photo mat and then added some color above & below. The stamping on this page just adds a little extra embellishment.
My last double page layout didn’t include any stamping. These are just some random pictures that remind me what a happy wonderful life we have – i love that smile!
(I actually went back and added another layered piece on the right hand page – in the top left side – I’ll try to remember to get a picture of it and replace this one!)
If you’ve made layouts with this paper, I’d love to see them – whether you followed the design guide or did your own thing!
