Awesome > Take 2! (Scrapbook Circle)

I just love Take 2 posts at Scrapbook Circle!  We all need inspiration and what a better place to gather some than from talented friends.  The Take 2 challenge helps to give you starting point for your layout but then you give it your own flair and you end up with an amazing new layout!   I was in love with this layout from Melissa Mann!


Here is my take on on this adorable layout!


I really loved the random patterned background held together with stitching!

The staggering of the title was a fun and unique idea for me!

Lastly I loved the sprinkle emblishments up the side of the layout! These clear starts are awesome!

Summer Journey (Pink Paislee)

I am over the moon in love with the new Solstice Collection from Pink Paislee!   The embellishments are amazing, I had a hard time not using them all at once!  This collections has an awesome vintage summer vibe to it and I had the perfect summer photos to go with it!

We love riding around on Sunday afternoons in this vintage VW Bus! It's the perfect ride to get an ice cream in on a hot summer day.  I wanted to pull the orange color from the photo into my layout and I started that by using some orange and gold mist to create a background on my white cardstock.

I added layered strips of paper (there was so many stunning patterns to choose from) and then added the photos.  The Summer Journey title seemed so fitting!

These gold triangles are one of my favorite embellishments - but there are so many to choose from!   This was a perfect little corner for some accents.

Good Friend! (Scrapbook Circle)

I was so excited to open and create with the new Our Adventure Kit from Scrapbook Circle!  I just love the vintage vibe from this kit along with the fresh summer colors!


I was drawn to this amazing patterned paper! I just love the colors and the chevron design to it - I had to use it on this layout!

There are so many incredible embellishments in this months kit and in the Away We Go Add-On!  I created a fun cluster off the bottom corner or my photo that says just how I feel about my this photo of my friend and I!

I think journaling is important but I do not love my hand writing so I use the little kraft bag and yellow tag to jot down my thoughts but keep them tucked out of sight.
I will be back soon with more creations from Our Adventure kit!

Patriotic Gift Bag (Pink Paislee)

It is the season for back yard BBQ's, summer gatherings and parties for new graduates.  No matter what the event its nice to bring the hostess or person being celebrated a little something and I always make sure the gift is presented in a cute and crafty way.  Right now my son is wrapping up his school year and this is a big one as he will be moving on to middle school next year!  I have put a special gift inside this patriotic gift bag that I made with Pen Pals Collection from Pink Paislee!

I always keep a stash of this white gift bags from the dollar store on hand so I can personalize each one depending on whom it meant for and the special occasion.

PP 4th July Bag 3

I found the 'Reach For The Stars' sentiment perfect for my son's awesome school year!  I cut this sentiment from my cameo as well and the white stars.

The Alphas in the Pen Pal Collection were perfect for a message on the tag I used from the Ephemera pack!

Happy gift giving!

Summer Time Layout (Pink Paislee)

Summer is here and it will be gone before we know it!  I took time to think about what things I really wanted to do this summer because its easy to get busy and ever get to those things you really wanted to do.  What better way to document my Summer  To-Do's than with a layout!

SumerTime@SaraZenger@Pinkpaislee, #Pinkpaislee, #scrapbooking, #HelloSunshine

I dug into my Hello Sunshine collection from Pink Paislee for this layout - it's a summer layout so it was perfect!  I wanted to add some fun to this layout so I pulled out my watercolor paints and made a multi-colored background that would help make my journaling stand out.

PP Summer Time LO 2_FINISHED

I used the label stickers from the Sentiments Series to document each to-do.  They were the perfect size to write on and there was plenty of room to embellish them as well!

Sometimes the journaling is not the focus of our layout and sometimes we think it's not important but its so important! In years to come someone is going to be able to see your work and read your store, in your own hand writing and it will mean the world to them.
