I made this page with the November "Creative" kit which featured the new Walnut Grove collection from Pebbles. Aqua and red are pretty much my favorite color combination, so you can guess that I just adored this line.
I thought the blues in Walnut Grove would work great with a baby page, so I dug up this picture of my never-sleeping baby. Ayiee, he made that first year hard!
I used the fun arrow paper to frame the page, then played on that theme by adding more pennants to the page. I embellished a trio of arrow stickers into houses under the photo by adding doors and roof lines.
Continuing with this kit, I have a layout with photos from a pumpkin patch visit last month. I loved how versatile this Pebbles line was. Here, I played on the neutrals in the kit.
The kraft papers in the Pebbles collections have always been some of my favorites. Great, heavyweight paper with subtle designs. On both these layouts, I used an old fashioned Dymo label maker in addition to the Pebbles' alphas.
Here's a closeup of the pennants at the top:
Switching to the Album kit, I have a Halloween layout with The Good Life collection from Fancy Pants. This line had a lot of red and black and worked great for these pirate photos of my little one. I loved the chipboard frames in this collection. I had such fun with them.
Below is a closeup of the title block. It fit perfectly in one of the chip frames.
I also used this kit for a layout of my son on his bicycle, using a red chipboard frame to pop the photo.
Below is a closeup of the tag. I also pop-dotted a few of the white circles to give the page some subtle dimension.
These are the kits I used. They are so full of great product and both are really versatile. The album kit does come with a chipboard album, but I opted to use the kit for other papercrafting.
