March Paper Pumpkin

It’s almost time for another Paper Pumpkin kit.  I can hardly wait to see what is coming next!  But as promised here are my creations from the March Paper Pumpkin kit.

The first two cards I used the instructions from the kit.  I followed the instructions exactly since this was my very first kit to assemble.

 

Below are my alternative designs using the kit supplies.  I had fun making use of the envelope scalloped flaps.  The envelopes are beautiful, but I knew I wouldn’t use them, so I cut them apart and waited for some inspiration to come.  It’s funny how I need to touch the pieces many times before an actual idea comes to mind.

I had fun with this kit and now ready to get the next one.   Order your kit HERE

Pretty Paper and a Sketch

I love working with photos in my Forever storage account.  It makes my scrapbooking so easy!  I recently joined a scrapbooking kit club where once a month a box of goodies comes straight to my home.  Here are my goodies from HipKitClubJune kit  After looking through all the pretty papers my next step is to find a photo or two or three to work with for my scrapbook page.  I opened my Library in Forever and chose a recent photo of my husband and me at a baseball game in May.  Since I’ve become a member of Forever I have slowly been gathering all our photos and uploading them to my private Forever account.  If you would like to peruse Forever, go here: Forever 

The early years of our marriage I’m in very few of the photos unless it was a very special event.  I was behind the camera in the early years.  Can you relate?!  Now with the iPhone’s we take selfies so I’m getting more of the two of us together.  Technology is awesome!

I chose my photo, downloaded it, then printed it on my home printer.  The next step was to find inspiration.  I saw the most recent scrapbook pages on Instagram from  Stuck?!Sketches I wanted to give it a whirl.  I went to work on the sketch design by Laura Whitaker17498821_10154297868476039_3277204505362502742_n

As I continued to work I felt happier and happier.  It was coming together like a dream.  The papers from HipKitClub and the sketch from Stuck?!Sketches helped me produce this page. File Jun 18, 3 02 34 PM I’m very pleased with it.  Let me know what you think of it.

Thanks for looking.
