County Fair

Studio Calico's January kit, County Fair, is now available! There's a fun mix of products in this kit, and I am especially in love with the exclusive wood veneer alphas (which I need extras of!), and the vertical numbers border stamp. I mentioned before that I worked with add-on 1 - Ring Toss, add-on 2 - Kissing Booth, and add-on 4 Photo Booth this month. I have to say my favorite is Ring Toss, but I had a lot of fun mixing everything up to make my layouts.

Laugh: This is my main kit only layout. I just love this photo I took of my nephew!

Joy: I've said before that this layout is one of my favorite layouts to date. I've held onto this childhood vacation photo for a long time now, and I saw that the red Kesi'art paper from Ring Toss was the perfect match so I finally scrapbooked the photo and story. I just love the expressions on all our faces - expressions of pure excitement and joy.

5 Days a Week: Just a layout for fun! The Zing embossing powders I used were Aqua, Leaf, Wave, and Teal metallic. The grey ink is JBS Weathervane. The litttle pocket holds a journaling card, since I ran out of room for journaling.

Together: Love this photo, love this Kesi'art burst paper. I kept it pretty simple :)

TW: A vacation layout about going to Taiwan back in 2008. I wanted to play with the super cool circle stamp (from Ring Toss) again! I started out by masking and stamping the circles, then cutting out random sections of the circles. After, I backed each circle with patterned paper and decorated them!

Being an Aunt: Lots of fun making this layout! I handstitched the cross stitch heart for added interest on the page :) I really love how it turned out.

Those are my layouts for this month! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying the rest of your holidays :) Bye everyone!
