Then I brushed the color on with a flat brush. I then applied more art crayon in teal and yellow, but this time I dry brushed it on with the Vicki Boutin stencil brushes and some of the stencils. The die cut pack, envelopes, rub-ons and stickers from the collection have all been used in the different areas. I love the calendar frame around the photo; this emphasizes the time frame of the visit that I am documenting here. All of the journaling is hidden on the tag above the photo. To see the full process for this layout, hop over to my YouTube channel to see the details. The weather is getting cooler here in New Brunswick and I cannot wait for the colourful leaves and everything pumpkin LOL.

But lets get back to reality shall we. We have some amazing work to show you. Perfect for people, like me, who enjoy getting many photos on a page. However, you can substitute any of the photos for journal cards etc. I only used 7 in my example. You can find that post here: Now Natalie is up with this gorgeous page. I so love that word cut file and how it is backed. The background paper comes from Simple Stories High Style paper pad. Our talented Mari has this one to share with you.

I love how she used the Doodlebug collection, fun. This collection is so vibrant; the color palette is perfect for a summer layout. This is my creation for this week. I screened shot the Instagram photo from her mom and enlarged the picture. Even though these papers were designed more or less for a boy and school, I used it in a completely different intention: I cut some of the cut apart cards to make them fit with the page. Notice the the dog which ressembles her own dog. It was created with the stamps from the collection and used the frame from the stickers.

The flag is also from the stamps and to tie in the colours, a little green sharpie to colour in the tie of the dog and the word on flag. Some enamel dots from my stash and Pink Fresh alphas and heart puffy stickers. Navy colour shine from Heidi Swapp to complete the page. Well there you go folks, another week in the books. Hope we have inspired you and please check in the store as new scrappy goodies are coming in. So get those photos ready in the meantime. Summer is almost over, but not quite. I must confess I had not made a mini album in a long time, but it seems everyone is getting some done lately.

I was inspired by a recent mini album Jen Schow did on you tube. I have pictures for you and if you stay to the end, I have a video showing how I I incorporated these elements. So here we go. First up is my cover, you can see I have used Pink Fresh puffy hearts and alphas. The flamingo came from some embellishments I got in the mail. Some gold sequins and Heidi Swapp colour shine throughout. Also used are doilies from Doodlebug plus some older products from Maya Road, flairs, and other Simple Stories stickers from past collections. If you have not been been been to the store lately, then take a look, a lot of fall and other goodies have are coming in.

So scoot over and take a look. This is a great sketch for anyone wanting to get more photos on their page. I like to do single photo layouts but quite often I find myself wanting to get more on my page. This sketch allows you to do up to ten 2 x 3 photos. I used seven on my page and used the other spaces for cards from the collection and my journaling. I find on my sample page the photos merge into each other.

I think putting a mat on them would have helped each one stand out from the other. Summer is rapidly coming to an end, and with it also go those long lazy hot days we all treasure so much. While many of you take time off work to visit your cottages or travel, our design team has been busy bringing you some inspiration. First up is Mari:. The Distress Oxide Inks used on the white background complement the colors from the collection. The JustNick Leaf Background cut file has texture paste added to it for some extra dimension on the layout. The florals and hearts are the perfect embellishments for this soft, pretty layout.

Love the soft tones and details in this romantic layout! Gisele create this page with a picture of herself with her mother. Pictures those days were rare, and this is one of the very few she has of both of them. She added a doily as a feminine touch and added sprinkles of Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in gold. In the upper left of the photo, she cut the ephemera frame in half and added both as corner embellishments. A few tags were added with a punch from her stash as well as the gold floss and the added heart charm.

The play of patterns and that sweet picture make this a stunning layout! She created this page using fussy cut elements from papers from the collection. All those florals bring the page together by framing the picture of her family. Well that is all for us this week! This collection is available at Scrapbook Nerd, along with many of the newer liner releases. So stop by to check what is new at the Store. This collection has a fall color palette, modern designs, and some beautiful floral illustrations that are perfect to embellish a page. It is a little sad. And thank you, Mous Earz, for the quote from the Little House book.

It perfectly matches how I feel. Posted by Jennifer Larson at 5: Wednesday, December 30, Scrapping at Archiver's.

I got a phone call Monday from a friend at church. Her husband had the day off and she wondered if I wanted to come scrapping with her. My husband did too, so I went. This first layout I had started but finally got together enough mojo to put it to bed: I used the last of it on this layout.

Those plant-like things I trimmed off a grassy plant I got at Michaels. There are many glue dots hidden within the reeds These next two I finished at home Monday night: I made use of the list I had made on Monday's post to build this page. Seriously, I have a bruise the size of an orange on my leg.

This next one I used two Studio Calico kits--this month's kit Orchestra, and that card comes from the first kit I bought, last December's Center Stage. I kept the card--had no use for it at the time--but decided now would be the time to use it. Posted by Jennifer Larson at 8: Archiver's , design , scrapbooking. Monday, December 28, Delightful holiday. I hope all of your holidays were memorable. Ours began a little melancholy: And every time I dropped food on the floor, I automatically called, "Roswell!

Still, Christmas day was wonderful. The boys were delighted with the gifts, Derick loved his sherry-cask aged scotch and his remote control R2-D2 the best, and I got two of these. I returned one and got supplies to go with it, along with some of the luscious new Basic Grey, Origins. Working with it makes me feel like I am in a spa. We couldn't go sledding Christmas day because we were in the middle of a big three-day storm of soaking wet snow. It was a big snow, though, evidenced by our being on the national news. Since most of that news is located on the East Coast, the stories were precious: Because of the frequent wet snow, we went sledding the day after Christmas, along with a healthy number of families from town.

We go here for the free sledding not the pay inner tube hill , and the sledding hill is HUGE, with many bumps. Not that any of us cared: Speaking of bumps, here's the final injury checklist: I practiced on these photos in this post.

I think they turned out very nice, considering it was cloudy and of course snowing at the time. Posted by Jennifer Larson at 6: Chrsitmas , Roswell , scrapbooking , scrapbooking process , sledding. Wednesday, December 23, Ready. I made this layout with our tree from last year. I wanted to journal a lot about the significance of each ornament here, but I just decided to simplify the concept--who wants to read a ton about inanimate objects anyway?

I used my Coluzzle for the circles, then used leftover Christmas products for the rest. Our decorations are done, with the final exception of the stockings, which we hang before bed Christmas Eve. We are just about ready for the holidays. I want to bake a lot, but I haven't had it in me; I'm a much more productive baker when Derick is here to keep the natives from going insane and me, for that matter while I bake. So we will be baking, getting last-minutes ingredients for pie, and waiting in eager anticipation for the Big Heap of Snow coming tonight.

We started going sledding Christmas Day; I hope to do it again this year.

Tomorrow night will be the first in a while I will be home for Christmas Eve. The Chorale I sing in performs at the candlelight service, and I've had to go sing every year. Now that both Derick and I are in it, I told the conductor she had to pick one of us for the night; the boys are just too young to make it that late without a huge meltdown.

She needed a low bass more than a high soprano for the song being performed, so Derick gets to sing while I get an early start on counting sugar plums. Posted by Jennifer Larson at 4: Christmas , scrapbooking , singing. Tuesday, December 22, Holiday Gifts. I spent the morning working on Christmas presents--it's good to put my mind on busy stuff right now.

My in-laws and parents basically ask for nothing, so I make them scrapbook pages of the grandkids. Here's a few older ones I made for them this past year: Here's the layout I sent to my parents: I like the dramatic background paper. It's so gorgeous, it doesn't need many embellishments. Still, I added a cluster of embellishments around the title. This one I made for my in-laws. I liked clustering trees to add to the theme of family tree. And may my sister-in-law Marty forgive me, but I couldn't fit her name in the journaling tag. It was the whole family--except her. I normally don't have an issue with sending layouts away, but I'm having trouble with these two.

Gosh, I love them. Ah, well, the season of giving. Posted by Jennifer Larson at 1: Monday, December 21, Tough decision. Roswell did not have a good weekend. She has not come out of her kennel; I have to give her water and food in there, and she doesn't always drink. Today she hasn't stopped shaking, her nose is cracked from dehydration, and she has multiple sores around her body, including a bloody nose. So it was with great difficulty that we decided to put her down tonight.

We plan on burying her cremated remains under her favorite tree in the backyard. Intellectually, I know that it is the best decision, but emotionally it was really hard to make the call. Was it too soon? Will she have better days ahead? The doggie dermatologist told me today she thought it was the best decision; there's no hope it will get better, and that thought helps. The image at the top is a card I bought yesterday.

It made me smile, so I thought I'd share it. It's a Compendium card that I got at a local store called The Woods. I'm grateful for words and images that encapsulate so perfectly how I feel.

Saturday, December 19, Keeping busy. Thank you for your well wishes. Roswell is slower, and I tend to put the food and water in her crate. The happy note for her is the fact that she has been prescribed four egg yolks a day to increase her protein intake. Plus, I give her all the fat I cut off my meat. We've been keeping busy with preparing for my church's Christmas Festival choral service.

Derick is singing this year too, so every rehearsal where we have to bring the boys is an adventure, sort of like the Indiana Jones adventure when he was dragged behind the truck for miles. But in a good way. I have another solo, a lullaby sung to the baby Jesus. This is a running joke in our family: I am starting my Christmas break on Monday. This year is a good one: So like every year, I made up a list of what I will do in the next two weeks.

Not the stuff I know I'll do, like get my hair highlighted appointment Wednesday or get the tailight replaced in my car appointment Monday. They help me stay productive so I don't lose myself in the potential torpor of a two-week vacation. I will relax--did you see the sledding? I can't wait--but I always like to accomplish something inside my home, since the school year, grading tends to eat up a lot of time, leaving me little time to take care of some stuff at home. And here's a layout about sledding last year that I did using a Becky Higgins sketch: I'm proud of that snowflake.
