Sympathy Card

Sadly I need a few sympathy cards this week. My brother's mother in law Shirley passed away. I found this Pocket full of posies to be a good collection to use for Sympathy cards. The soft blue and yellow colours and patterns are soothing and simple. I also used a "With Heartfelt Sympathy" stamp from Stampin' Up! The flower in the middle was cut from the pp, and placed inside a frosted lollipop flower from Prima.

Teacher Tins

Today I'm going to a family picnic at Nicholas' school because his JK time is coming to an end this week. His school has a lot of great faculty that make his education was it is, so I've created a few thank you gifts for them. His full time teacher will be receiving a gift basket but here are some fun and inexpensive gifts I was able to put together with our tins and the Cherry Hill Collection. The best part is that Nicholas was able to punch out the shapes and decorate the chocolate peperment patties.

Abbey Road with Tracy

I love these pictures of Tracy's daughter, and the way she tied them together using a chipboard chunky swirl with a layered flower on top. Such a cute page!

Abbey Road

Today we will feature the work of Valarie. I love the way she puts three photos across the top on one shared mat. It's a great look, and really good use of space. This layout wasn't quiet done, she was going to print out a note to add on top of the journalling card on the bottom left.

This card was inspired by the wonderful sketch this week over at 2s4u. I used the Cherry Hill Collection Kit. I'm loving these pp, the colours make a perfect back drop. The edges are stitched with Bazzill Floss, the Crystals are Black Swirl the flowers are from the Prima Deluxe Mixed Bag, and the letters are White Foam Thickers.

Pocket Full of Posies

I thought we would start our week of sharing with this month's Nonsense Collection. I really love the way she was able to incorporate all of the elements from this kit on the one page, pp, crystals, chipboard tags, ribbon, and the designer eyelet.

Fawnd of You

Today's feature was created by Tracy. She has used the Fawnd of You Collection to create this double layout. I love the way Tracy used the tickets built into the backround paper as a journalling spot, she even added ribbons to them and now they look like they were added on top of the page. I also really like how she combined the paper trim and the dot ribbon to divide the page into two. She created these at a scrapbooking retreat we atteneded and we had a great giggle helping her to choose a title for her page...the partridge family.. funny referance to the popular tv show.

Shared Creations!

Recently I've been sent so many wonderful Scrapbook pages that I've decided to share these images with you all. The layouts will come from a variety of customers and will highlight kits from the past few months. Each day this week I will post a new creation!

I thought we would start our week of sharing with this month's Nonsense Collection. I really love the way Lori was able to incorporate all of the elements from this kit on the one page, solid cardstock, pp, pp cutouts, crystals, chipboard tags, ribbon, and the designer eyelet. Lori has a blog, "About a Love of Mine", to see more creations by Lori stop by her blog and have a peek at her wonderful work.

1st Snowman

Again this layout was made with the Frosty Days Collection Created With Paper featured as a kit for February 09. I used the chesnut thickers here again and used the "z" for and "n" and I really like the way the sharp lines match the "M". I didn't have a big one, so I actually traced a chipboard capital I that had the look of a 1. I like how that turned out too :) There is journalling on this page too, it's purposefly hard to see, it follows the line on the torn paper under the pictures. If you have any scraps left from creating the album from this kit I encourage you to use them. One of our customers was just saying yesterday that even after completing the album she was able to get two pages done, and thought she still had enough to make another two.

Cherry Hill Collection Kits!

Created With Paper is amoung the first to receive the hottest new October Afternoon Cherry Hill Collection kits, and as soon as I saw the 2S4U sketch this week I couldn't wait to make a card with this kit and sketch! I also used Black Say It in Crystals, one of the new birdie doodlebug braddies and the rope and stamp are from Stampin' Up!

We also have the 8x8 paper pads, wild cards, and rub-ons from both the Cherry Hill and Ducks in a Row line! So much fun :)

Nonsense Layouts

Here are two pages I made from this month's Nonsense Collection. Sorry it's not clearer, the weather isn't giving us great sunny days for optimal picture taking! If I keep waiting for ideal conditions, I'm afraid we may be into July before I'd be able to get these up, it's been a sad start to our June to say the least! Because they're not super clear you can't really see my journaling, but I followed the curve along the second page and wrote a bit about our day along the right side. I made a mistake in my writing so I covered it up with a flower from the Prima Deluxe Mix bag, but everything else is from this month's kit. The other flowers and birds/branches were cut from the patterned paper, the title was done with the coper rub-ons, designer eyelets were used in the center of the flowers and the Say It in Crystals were used to give a little sparkle!
