KL January Layout Sketch

LOVE Kiwi Lane's scrapbook sketch for the week:

I barely had to change it at all!

Here is my sample:

I used KIWI LANE paper!!! Sooooo excited that they have their own paper line now!

I never have pictures I can cut down super tiny, so I just moved my title up to take the place of the 3 little pictures in the sketch:

Have you tried 12x12 scrapbooking with Kiwi Lane's 8 inch mini-borders yet?! It's so easy, so fun, and gives you a new look with NO effort:

Big fan of things that come together quickly and still look GOOD!

KL January Card Sketch

First sketch of the year!!!

Go to Kiwi Lane's blog HERE for details to participate and win.

Here is the sketch:

I LOVE the Winter Template!!!

I wasn't quite sure which direction I wanted to go with this one... so I made two! Both my cards are 5x7 and greeting-less to make things more versatile.

Sample #1:

Believe it or not, this simple and elegant cardstock-only approach is a BIG challenge for me! I do really like how it turned out!

Just some inking and a bit of Liquid Pearls for embellishments:


Card #2:

Yep. VERY different approach here! I like this one, too!

I lined just the edges of my snowflake with Shimmer Trim so the card wasn't totally overwhelmed with glitter:

Fun stuff!

Go make your own!

January Layout


Don't let the door hit your butt on the way out 2015!

VERY ready for a different year...

Anyway, here is the layout my Close To My Heart scrapbooking group will be making this month:

We've never made a New Years layout before!

We are using the La Vie En Rose Paper Packet, White Shimmer Trim, and Clear Sparkles.

I used EVERY pattern option in this pack except for the side with the roses:

Charming Cascades is my new favorite stamp set:

TONS of sparkle detail on this one! So hard to photograph, but so fun in person!

YAY 2016!
