Here is week 13 of my Project Life:

Star-Studded Layout || Bella Blvd

Good morning, everyone!  I wanted to pop in quickly and share a layout that is on the Bella Blvd blog today.  I was asked to design a patriotic layout in celebration of Independence Day and this is what I came up with:

I used a ton of stars cut out from papers from all different Bella collections.  I also sprinkled in some star sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps store.

I actually like the way the layout ended up turning out.  I love my stars!

13.1 || The Cut Shoppe

Hey, everyone!!  I wanted to pop in and quickly share my most recent layout for The Cut Shoppe with you.

I've had these photos of my friend and I laying around for awhile, but was having a hard time figuring out how to scrap them.  The pictures are from a half marathon that we ran last year and when I saw the "Running the Race" cut files, I knew I had finally found what I needed to scrap these photos!  I also combined the files with the new "This & That" files and some stars from the "I Heart String Art" file.  Here is the end result:


The stars from the "I Heart String Art" file are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to put on a layout - they are so versatile!  For this layout, I misted them with some gold Heidi Swapp color shine and topped them with some glittery gold chipboard stickers.

And here are the files I used:





Thanks for stopping in - enjoy the weekend!!!

Another Grid Layout || Clique Kits

Hey, everyone!  I know I shared a grid layout last week, but I have another one to share today - this time it was made using my July kit from Clique Kits.

Like every month, this month's kit included a variety of cut files, including an awesome calendar cut file.  I enlarged the cut file so that the squares were roughly 2" x 2" and then began filling in my squares with a variety of photos, papers and embellishments.  The grid never gets old for me!!

To add a little bit of interest I  placed my grid at an angle.  I kind of love the end result!


Hope you can check out the CK blog!  There is currently a waiting list for kits at the moment, but the store has a ton of great stuff and if you use code KAT10 at check out you'll get 10% off your entire purchase!!

Project Life with SpiegelMom Scraps

Oh, Project Life how I hate you...and how I love you.  I hate you right now because I am soooooo far behind.  I love you because you really are a great project when everything is completed and pretty in an album.

Ugh.

And so begins the great PL catch up.  I am behind by 14 weeks.  This will not be fun, but it must be done.  Luckily, I have a lot of fun supplies from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop!

Today, I finished off week 8.  I had been putting this one off for the longest time because I didn't have a lot of meaningful pictures...which explains why there are 3 whole pockets dedicated to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.  Sigh.


While the contents of the week may not be too exciting, I do like some of the scrappy stuff I got to use on my page.  Here are all the fun products I used from the store:


As always if you see anything in the store that you like, use code KAT10 to receive 10% off your entire purchase!

Thanks for stopping in...hopefully I can knock out another PL spread or two before the week is up!

Catching Up with Bella Blvd

Hey, everyone!  I have two new Bella Blvd layouts to share with you today.  The first one was featured in the newly released Bella Buzz newsletter.  We were given the challenge to combine the Just Add Color Collection, the Color Chaos Collection, at least 2 photos and a long title to create a layout.  Here is what I came up with:

The second was a layout created to feature the Just Add Color collection...I added lots of bright colors to showcase the photos of my little niece covered in ice cream:

Working the Grid || SpiegelMom Scraps

Hey everyone!  I wanted to pop in today to share a way to work in a lot of your favorite embellishments from the SpiegelMom Scraps store: use a grid!  I love using a grid because you have little boxes to fill with embellishments.  Here’s what I’m talking about:



To make this layout, I began by creating a grid with twine.  Then I placed my pictures where I wanted them in the grid and finally I filled the rest of the squares with some of my favorite embellishments.  In this case some of my favorite embellishments included the Crate Paper Poolside wood veneers that were just recently added to the shop.  Seriously, aren’t they the cutest??

Here are some other items that I used from the store:

Thanks for stopping in.  Do you ever “work the grid”?
