A two page baby layout using 7Gypsies

Hi everyone!
I am excited to show you my next layout using the Scraps Of Darkness 'Attic Finds' kit!

This wonderful paper does not scream 'baby girl' layout but I could picture it.  I know I don't normally create  two page albums but since this is for my great niece's baby album I thought it would go well!  This little cutie and her daddy are such a sweet pair!

I fussy cut the banner from one of the papers and used it to tie the two pages together. I also cut out one of the doors as an accent on the first page!  The title is also a cut out! I sprayed the doilies with Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain from the color add on.  

I used flowers from the main kit, floral add on and previous kits!

My young man...

Hi everyone!
Today I am excited to share a layout featuring a photo of our youngest and  the 'Attic Finds' kit from Scraps of Darkness!

This photo is from Ty's grade 8 grad!  He is really such a great kid...always willing to help and is a really loving kid with a kind heart! 
For this layout I used the awesome Authentique rugged papers from the main kit and paper add on

I added some metal from previous kits and the title piece is from the paper tab you trim off!  It is perfect for a boy becoming a young man!

The books - appropriate for a grad photo - are textured stickers from 7Gypsies and  are really cool!

I am excited to enter this into the June Authentique challenge which challenges you to create something to celebrate either the Fathers or Sons in your lives!

Me at 45....

Good morning!
I want to share my final projects using the 'Blue Skies and Sunshine' Scraps Of Darkness kit.
My family recently had our photos done - we try to this every year - by my niece Jill at Breaultography and this was one of the photos.
I dont do a lot of pages about me, it is usually me and the boy or me and my hubby but I am really trying to create more projects about me so my grandchildren and future generations will know a bit about me.

 I created this one using the Bo Bunny Petal Lane papers!

I placed the wonderful Blue Fern frame on my photo and traced it so I could trim my photo to fit.  I simply embossed the frame with black embossing powder

I used flowers from the kit, floral add on and from previous kits

I did a small title I think fits!

Thanks for stopping by!

Another Beach layout using Kaisercraft from Scraps Of Darkness!

Good morning!
I am back to share another layout I created using the Scraps of Darkness 'Blue Skies and Sunshine' kit!

I used the Kaisercraft Indigo skies for this layout.  I started by distressing the edges of my paper and then layering them

I painted the Blue Fern Chipboard circle with the Prima Alchemy paint then add the Ice Resin in spots.  Then I added the die cut title!

I created the flower cluster with flowers from the floral add on, and previous kit flowers and my stash.  I also added some gems from a previous kit and some shells from my stash. 

I am also entering this in the Kaisercraft monthly challenge!
I used the letters F - flowers, B - Blue, brown, G - Gems, S - Shells

Thanks for stopping by!

Multi photo Beach layout using Kaisercraft from the 'Blue Skies and Sunshine' kit!

Good morning!
When I received the awesome  'Blue Skies & Sunshine' kit I knew that it would be perfect for a beach layout!

I love the motion of the kaisercraft background paper and the blues are fabulous!

I used some Kaisercraft die cuts for accents and the title!

 Our boys were so little there....I decided to change the photos to black and white to add more visual interest and contrast!  I also used one of the Kaisercraft stickers on the side

In the kit is this awesome circle chipboard that I embossed with Lindy's stamp gang embossing powder from a previous kit and then added the blue shards of glitter glass from this kit.  I tucked in some die cuts, flowers from the floral add on and previous kits and a seashell from my stash.

I am entering this is the really cool May challenge at Kaisercraft
Choose 3 boxes and create any papercraft project you like featuring things starting with the first letter of your chosen boxes.
So I chose M - multi photo, B - beach layout, blue F - flowers, 
D - die cuts, C - chipboard I know you had to choose only 3 but I overdid it lol!

Thanks for stopping by

using even not so great photos!

Good morning!
A few years ago we went to Niagara Falls and my hubby took this photo of our boys and I.  Unfortunately Ty had his eyes closed.  I still scrapbooked the photo because it was an important memory and I wanted to document it.

I used the awesome Scraps of Darkness 'Blue Skies and Sunshine' kit which fit perfectly for this layout . 

I did some layering of the Bo Bunny Petal Lane papers and added doilies!

I love the patterns on the papers and the flowers are super cute!

Thats all for now!  I hope I have inspired you to use those not so great photos so you can still document the memory!
