Perfect Serenity With You--June 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
I'm sharing another layout using my June 2015 Scrap Stash kit.
 
The overall background paper was my least favorite in the entire paper packet and I struggled with how to use it.. So...I added a piece of vellum over the top and toned it down and now I like it much better.
The inspiration for this layout came from Jen Schow's x6 Paper Pad love Series Video #5 "So Sweet". If you haven't seen her video series I would suggest you grab a cup of coffee and sit and enjoy it, I was so inspired to use up nearly a whole 6x6 paper pad!

I've had these chipboard phrases forever...years and years and years! I'm convinced that if you hold onto your stash long enough what is old will be new again and you will be able to use up those old embellishment's and no one will know that they are old unless you tell them.

The flower shape sticker has also been in my stash for a long, long time as well.

I actually smooched some mist on a package and then smooched it down on the paper, not entirely sure I like this technique, but I've been trying to try new things.

Again the smooched technique under this cluster and I left most of it exposed here, where earlier I tried to cover most of it up. LoL!!! I want to be a messy artist, but I'm not sure I'm there yet!!!

Just for You--June 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!!
 
Today I'm sharing another layout using my June 2015 Home Made Scrap Stash Kit. The photos from this layout are from
 
I was inspired to create this layout by the 6x6 Paper Pad Love Series by Jen Schow Process #3 Amazing Present. I used the 6x6 papers to layer up behind the photos and the embellishments.

I layered vellum over blue cardstock and then used washi tape to divide the page into a grid.

This is a photo of my father in law whose birthday we were celebrating.
 
I used the canvas font along with the mixed blue square letters.

Love that I was able to use more word/phrase stickers on this layout.

She is Brave--June 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!!
 
Today I am sharing another layout from my June 2015 Home Made Scrap Stash kit.
 
I love this layout, probably because of the photo.
 
The inspiration for this layout started with the 6x6 Paper Pad Love Series by Jen Schow Process #3 Amazing Present. I cut the 6x6 papers in half diagonally and used them around the layout. I used black ink around each paper for added cohesiveness.

I was able to use the last of the chipboard elements (oriental lettering) that have been in my stash for prolly 5 to 8 years! WoW!!!

I used a bit of Washi tape along the top and bottom with more word/phrase stickers and gold embellishments.

I used a gold phrase sticker on the photo for the title.

So Long Color--June 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Here is another layout using my June 2015 Home Made Scrap Stash kit.
Yep...that's me in the photos with my hair down. I'm slowly letting the color grow out, it's been almost a year since I started but you really can't tell in the photos since I have my head tipped slightly back.
 
I was inspired to create this layout using the 6x6 Paper Pad Love Series by Jen Schow, it's video process #1 Sodalicious for any who wish to go have a look.

I used lots of border strips along the top and bottom of the layout.

More cut aparts and some scraps. I used a 6x6 paper behind the photos by cutting it in half and using it side by side.

I sprayed the wood veneer with the Heidi Swapp mist and the cut out on the left side is fussy cut with the flower cut to overlap the photo.

Remember This--June 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I am sharing a layout I made using my June 2015 Home Made Scrap Stash kit. The photo collage is of my husband's niece Stephanie, it was her graduation announcement.
 
The first photo is more true to the actual color in the layout, not sure what happened to the other photos.

I did add in the black cardstock on the background as well as the black textured paper.

I used a  cork frame here and added a few sticker and chipboard piece to the center. The background paper is from the 6x6 paper stack I added to the kit.

Love that I was able to add some of the gold embellishment's to this layout.

This is a cut apart piece that I added a gold heart to.
