You Are My Sunshine--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
Today I am sharing a layout made  from my March 2015 CKC kit.
 
Yes that is a wild mushroom in the photos.
Ha, the kids don't think of it as a mushroom though, they actually think of it as a fairy seat, how fun is that.

I used some bits f ribbon that I had in my kit to add texture to the layout.

I've had some of these layered up embellishments in my stash for years.

I actually took some gold paint and brushed it around the photos to give it a fairy quality. Looks much more charming in real life.

This Week--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
I'm sharing another layout from my March 2015 CKC kit.
The kit used one of the older collections from CTMH as the basis for the kit and I added tons of embellishments from my stash.
I originally did this layout for a challenge at he Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog but didn't get it posted in time.
No sketch for this one...just my own imagination.

I cut this little section from a 3x4 pocket page card and placed it over the embossed clouds.

I also cut this from a 3x4 pocket page card.

I embossed the sentiment "you were born to fly" on the lower corner of this background paper, The title is cut from my silhouette and layered on an old journal card from CTMH.
 
Finally I mixed several fonts to create the journaling.

Cheater--So Much Fun

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I am sharing a layout that I made several years ago that I just added photos to recently.
I made it at a scrapbook convention that I went to about 4 or 5 years ago and it has lived in my unfinished album since then.
 
I have recently fallen in love with 2 page layouts again and I love that I had this one that I didn't have to think about and just add the photos to.
 
I love the subject content, Mr Gulley and myself along with all 4 of our grandees!

This is baby Ele, she was still a tiny little baby, like 4 or 5 months in this photo and she's a strapping 1.5 year old now. My oh My how she has changed. 
 
These are of Cameron, Shani and Zoë.

Pocket Pages--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
I'm sharing more of the pocket pages I made with my March 2015 CKC kit, I obviously made tons and tons!!
 
Love how this layout came together!!

By the time this layout came together I had lots of scrap photos! LoL!! I had cut down several photos from previous layout and I didn't want to just toss out the off cuts. Plus I had several photos that had lots of stuff and backsides of people that I was able to cut down to make this layout.
 
I used 3 6x6 pattern papers to make the 4x6 filler cards for this layout and just dressed them up with some added embellishments.

I added a couple of filler cards for this layout with some additional embellishments added for texture.

Flowers--Sweet Aubree--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
I'm sharing a layout of my sweet niece's baby daughter Aubree.
I used my March 2015 CKC kit to create this layout.
As you can see I started off with a sketch, though it was an 8.5x11 sketch I don't usually let that stop me from making it my own and using it on a 12x12 layout.
 
Pagemaps January 2008 8.5x11 sketch

Lots of embellishments here and if you look closely you can see where I Frankensteined my alpha to create letters.

More floral embellishments and candy dots.

Even some bits of chipboard here.

Pocket Pages Smile--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
I've been a bit MIA, work and life tends to get in my way sometimes, but I'm sure you all know what that is like. Onto my layout today, which is another pocket page layout using my March 2015 CKC. The photos are all from my 2014 Family reunion.
 
An old cardstock tag from my swapping days on the upper left photo and a chipboard tag on the upper right photo.

Small resin piece her along with some candy dots.

A random tag with a bit of chipboard and a title card on the left photo, the upper right slot has a filler card with a bit of old chipboard, and the lower right photo has some chipboard corners.

A paper embellishment with a resin embellishment and some candy dots.


I just used a word cut out on the left photo, cut way down and placed on a label sticker and then added a paper flower and a resin embellishment in the center. The top card on the right has 3 different fonts.

I used a chipboard journal spot with a paper embellishment.
 
Several stickers here.
 
I cut out the title on the right photo on my silhouette.
