I love the circle and the strips on this sketch! And since July is my boys' birthday month (they're twins!), I decided to do a birthday layout:

You know I love bright and fun colors, so I was excited to use the Surprise! collection from Bo-Bunny. There are so many awesome embellishments and extras that coordinate -- and I love that. I used the coordinating jewels and brads to create the circle element from the sketch. It really added to the fun feeling of this layout.

Super fun! It came together so fast. I love the Oh, Snap paper collection from Echo Park. It works great for lots of themes, including these fun family photos. I added in foam dots to give the stickers some lift and used Latte Thickers from American Crafts.

June Project for Kiwi Lane

Hello everyone! I'm thrilled to be up on the Kiwi Lane Designs blog today with a new project for June, although I'm also sad that this is my last project as a design team member for Kiwi Lane. It has been an amazing term with Kiwi Lane, one of my most favorite scrapbooking companies ever! I know the new design team will be bringing us new inspiration as well, so I'm looking forward to that.

For June, the Kiwi Lane design team has been working with Hazel & Ruby -- a fun new scrapbooking company with lots of unique products. I had a blast creating with their tissue paper, sequins, and Stencil Masks. Here's a sneak peek:

Be sure to learn more about Hazel & Ruby at their blog or their Facebook page.

This month's featured Kiwi Lane templates are Mini Madison Avenue and Accents -- both of which are on sale this month and both of which I used to create this fun project. You'll have to head over Kiwi Lane to see the whole project.

But before you go, you'll have to enter to win your very own set of Kiwi Lane Accents templates. To enter, just do one of these:

  • Subscribe to my blog (in the left nav) and leave a comment on this post telling me you're all signed up.
  • Like my Facebook page and leave me a quick post there telling me you did it.
I'll announce the random winner on June 27. Be sure to enter before midnight MST on June 26. (I can only ship to United States -- thank you for your understanding.)

Good luck and stay crafty!
Lissa :)

Updated 6/28/14: Congratulations to Heather Thompson -- you're the winner of the Kiwi Lane templates! Email me at MightyCrafty.me@gmail.com to claim your prize.

Another Scrappy Layout

So I've been working to "kill the kit" with the March 2013 kit from Studio Calico. I'm finally here today with my last layout from the kit -- a scrappy layout, made just from the last bit and pieces I had from the kit.

Family Is What Matters layout from scraps -- www.MightyCrafty.me

You might recognize this layout type as one I have done many times before. :) Like this layout, and this one too. It's just a framework that works so well, and I love how it turns out each time.

So I had created all these layouts with the March 2013 Studio Calico kit:

http://mightycrafty.blogspot.com/2014/06/sketch-n-scrap-sketch-challenge-58.htmlhttp://mightycrafty.blogspot.com/2014/05/sketch-n-scrap-inspired-by-challenge-5.htmlhttp://mightycrafty.blogspot.com/2014/05/practical-scrappers-may-sketch.html
http://mightycrafty.blogspot.com/2014/06/sketch-n-scrap-inspired-by-challenge-6.htmlhttp://mightycrafty.blogspot.com/2014/05/sketch-n-scrap-sketch-challenge-56.html

And all I had left of the 12x12 papers in the kit were lots of scraps. So I trimmed a bunch of them down to 3" strips of varying heights and layered them up along the side of my paper:

I added a few thin 12" strips and washi tape from the kit and that's it -- layout done.

Love it! And that finishes off the March 2013 kit from Studio Calico. On to the next one...

Until next time,
Stay crafty!
