i've been scrapping. i know. insanity, right? why would i actually want *use* this stuff instead of just looking at it? ha! so, the first 2 are peeks of my elle's studio layouts for this month. they go up on the site on tuesday. i was really happy with the layouts i made this month. doesn't always happen. but, i really loved these 2 + the card i made. :) also - tomorrow the new "layers" stuff comes out. yay!!! can't wait to get that in my hot (actually freezing cold at the moment) hands!
and next up.... i was looking at the iris boxes i hold my studio calico kits in & i have 10 kits, all in varying stages of use. some used a lot. some barely touched. seriously?! TEN! sheesh! so... i decided to challenge myself to go back & make one layout with each kit. i've made it through 4.
this one is from april 2010, "joyland." i loved that kit. not really sure why i still have some left! but i do!
this one is from party sunny. i've not done much with this kit. it just didn't call me like some of the others. but, i've been hoarding that chipboard piece. decided to buck up and use it!
this one is from continental. a kit i LOVED but have rarely used! i need to get on that. i actually have some old air force photos of my great uncle during ww2. thinking i might need to use this kit for those...
this one is from summer camp. i've made a bunch of layouts with this one; so, i am thinking i can break it down soon... just to feel like i've gotten more done. some old pics of my daughter! eep! she looks so little!
and these last two. sigh.... i ordered a bunch of the new stella and rose from my mind's eye. seriously in love with this stuff. made these 2 at a crop last nite. want to keep using it more & more & more! these 2 are current new favs! :)
my mom has done a great job of scanning old family photos and putting them on disks for me. when i saw this photo of my grandma, i fell in love with it! i think i am going to print one to put up in my house. this stella and rose just seemed perfect for some of these old photos. :)
(and those thickers - how delicious are those? i may or may not have bought several packs.)
this pretty little thing is my friend's daughter. her name is stella. how could i not use this for a layout of her! hee hee!
and that's it for now.... though i have some more scrappy plans. :) so, maybe i'll have some more to share soon!
