Let's Go: Kit Club Travel Layout

Hello and Happy Friday!

Today, I have a travel-themed layout using the September kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

This kit featured bold, bright colors and travel-related icons from the paper manufacturer Imaginisce

I thought the map paper was really fun and I wanted to showcase it without overwhelming the page. I cut it so that I could see the outline of the United States and used alphas and a geotag to mark where we were.

I anchored the page with a pair of suitcases. I added silver brads to the buckles for a little pop of texture. 

I also added small black buttons to the scooter die cut. I like the bit of depth that gives the page without being too bulky. Both the buttons and brads were part of the kit. 

I wasn't sure where to add my journaling. I could have added strip journaling right above the suitcases and I think it would have looked fine there. Instead, I printed out a short sentence that covered the basics and tucked it under the left side of my photo. 

Here's one more look: 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

First Day: Documenting Kindergarten

School's back in session and it's great to have the household back in routine! To celebrate, I made a layout of my son's first day of Kindergarten. 

Cory was so excited to start Kindergarten. He may feel differently about later grades, but it was fun to capture his joy on this day. 

I made this layout using the Happy Traveler collection from Imaginisce that was including in the new September kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I loved the primary colors and thought they were perfect for a school page. I used the journaling cards that read: There is a great big world out there and Pack your bags to support the Kindergarten theme. 

I use this notebook edge punch from EK Success on a lot of my layouts because I just like it. But it works especially well here with a school page. 

Below is a photo of the September kit I used from My Creative Scrapbook. It definitely doesn't scream school, but the bold colors got me thinking in that direction. 

Here's one more look at the layout:

I'll be back tomorrow with a travel layout from this kit!

Let's Do That Again: The Dirty Dancing Trip

Good morning!

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.  It's always sad to see the summer fade away, but it also nice to welcome the first tinges of Fall. I love Fall weather. 

Before summer slips away entirely, I wanted to document this family trip to Lake Lure, NC. I made this layout with the new September kit from My Creative Scrapbook

Lake Lure was the principal filming location for the movie Dirty Dancing, which was released in 1987 and made Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey stars. 

The cast and crew stayed at the iconic Lake Lure Inn, built in 1927. 

We stayed in a camper! But we did get a side view of the inn from a boat ride. 

The boat ride was one of our favorite parts of the trip. I took of photo of my mom, dad and son on the boat as we were pulling out of the dock. 

The kit featured mostly bold colors and patterns, but I chose some of the softer ones for my photos. 

I tucked the photo of the Lake Lure Inn in the upper left corner. 

Here's another look at the full layout. 

Here's a photo of the kit I used, which featured a travel line by Imaginisce.

September Sneak Peeks: My Creative Scrapbook

I don't know if you have ever joined a scrapbooking kit club, but they are a fun way to scrapbook. I find it easier to scrapbook using a collection or a kit, instead of hunting through my stash. 

I started been designing for My Creative Scrapbook in 2012 and it's always a great surprise to see what's in this month's kit. The designers get a hint a few days before our boxes arrive, then we stalk our mailboxes!

Some months, the kits are an especially good fit with my style. Like this month: lots of bold colors plus a fun travel theme. 

Here's a sneak peek at what I made: 

September 5th is reveal day. You can find out more information about My Creative Scrapbook on its website here.
