Summer Inspiration #4

Just wanted to share this super simple mini album....

"Friendship Mini Album" By Kim Loewen
(supplies: patterned paper, gel blossoms, bling, mirror butterflies, silhouette words, ghost butterflies, ribbon, felt flowers, writers block, chandelier crystals, mask, die-cuts, rounded floral, chipboard alphabet: Heidi Swapp; patterned paper, black journaling pen: American Crafts; journaling shape, sticker, die-cut circle: Making Memories; glimmer mist: Tattered Angels; scalloped sticker: Martha Stewart; material, jewels, zip-tie, ribbon: Other)

By just using patterned paper and attaching it at one end I created a simple mini easy and so cute! This is something that can be done easily in one night...especially if you use coordinating products and pictures from one event. Add some journaling and you're done! Print your pictures from one particular outing this month and create a mini album in one night!!

(these are my favorite pens!! Love them!!!)

Don't forget that Talia will be back next week with another cute thing to share!!

Summer Inspiration #2

"My Favorite Things" By Kim Loewen
(supplies: patterned paper, glossy extras, bling floral centers, bling borders, chipboard alphabet, alphabet rub-ons: Heidi Swapp; glittered chipboard letters: Doodlebug; paper flower: Bazzill Basics; tulle, staples: Other)

I've made an effort to do more scrapbooking about myself lately...secretly it's just an excuse to use pink every now and then...hehe!! But why not change it up a bit and use colors you don't normally use or topics you don't often scrapbook. It will be a nice change and can get your creativity going. Give it a try!

And make sure you check back again next Monday for more inspiration!! Tal has something really fun to share!

Summer Inspiration #1

Hey, Everyone!

Well, it's the beginning of the summer...hopefully you're all enjoying some good weather and fun summer vacations! I just wanted to stop in to share a layout with you...maybe you'll find some time to scrapbook!

"Happy Life" by Talia Audenart
(supplies: patterned paper, die-cut accents: Making Memories; foam letters, mirrors, scalloped tape: Heidi Swapp; glittered chipboard letters: Doodlebug)

This is my FAVORITE color combo right and turqoise! Even though this isn't a "summer" layout, the colors feel fun, bright and "summery" to me. I had these pictures left over from another project I was working on that never got completed, so I thought I'd do a layout instead. Enjoy!!

Thanks for stopping by and come back next Monday for some more Summer Inspiration!
