Kiwi Lane March Scrapbook Sketch

Yay! Kiwi Lane sketch time again!!!

Visit their blog HERE to learn how to WIN!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my sample:

Crazy busy layout, but it IS for a crazy busy little girl... so it works!

Big fan of the placement of the title on the arrow:

It conveys so much movement! Love it!

I really like to buy scrapbook stuff in pre-coordinated packs, but I don't really like to pocket scrapbook and everything seems to come with 3x4 and 4x6 pocket cards now... so I cut apart any matching cards I like into embellishments, journaling spots, or titles:

Ta-da! Now I'm not wasting things and I'm not forced into a style I don't like!

See what I mean about movement:

The arrows with the slope with the chevrons?! Whoosh!!! Kiwi Lane is GREAT for adding movement to layouts!

Go make your own!

March Layout

Here is the layout my Close To My Heart scrapbooking group is making this month:


We are using the Kaleidoscope Paper Packet, Gold Foil Tape, Pink Shimmer Trim, and a ton of Clear Sparkles.

I gave in to the matching diamond stamp set on this one:

Lining the edges of paper with the gold foil tape is my new favorite thing!

Just a *bit* more bling on the second page:

Ok, a lot more bling!!!

Perfect for pictures of my little girl playing dress-up with all of her "diamonds" on!

Shine on!

February Layout


This is LATE!!!

Sorry Valerie!

Here is the layout my Close To My Heart scrapbooking group made in February:

We used the Charlotte Paper Packet, Gold Foil Tape, Gold Puffies, and Black and Gold Ribbon. I love that this paper packet has ONLY patterned paper!!! No plain cardstock for me to ignore!

I'm not much of a pocket scrapbooker, so I cut apart one of the 3x4 cards for my title:

 And for a few journaling spots:

LOVE the gold foil and heart puffies!!!

Scrap away!

KL March Card Sketch

Holy cow!

Is it really March?!

I'm getting old...

Here is the awesome card sketch challenge from Kiwi Lane this week:

And here is my sample:

I had fun with this one!

I also went a *tad* overboard with my new favorite gold foil tape:

I LOVE the shine!!!

I popped up the "petals" and centers just a bit:

And added a few dots of gold pearl paint for even more shine!
