Two For Tuesday...Scrapbook Style

I have been making a little time to scrapbook on the weekends, so I am working my way through some unfinished projects and kits, and have a little bit to share with you today.
The first layout that I am sharing with you is made from my September "Sweet Citrus" kit,
my paper forgery-you can see a glimpse of it here:

(that I never got around to sharing):

For my paper forgery, I took a soft pink chevron paper from Dear Lizzy, and colored it with an orange Gelato, with I brushed with a bit of water. When it came time to add my photo and embellishments, the orange looked too harsh against the soft pink, so I painted  over most of the background with a soft white wash of paint, before adding the photo, journaling, and embellishments, and love the soft look that it gave to the page. 

The Second layout that I am sharing with you today is a page made up from my April "Fantastic&Fabulous" kit:

The Dear Elsie paper seemed to go perfectly with the "selfie", and girly feel of the page:

And...I am super happy to get some of that OLD stash used up!!


  1. Nice to see that you're still working with your older kits - I have my February one just sitting here mocking me! I really like that soft background on your first layout. I haven't tried gelatos yet but you did a lovely job using yours.

  2. These are beautiful! LOVING the colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. What a nice contrast in styles on these two pages. Love the background work on the first and the pop of the colors on the second. Fab!

  4. now that really is old stash being used up there in the second layout! good for you for going back to those old kits. Need to do that as all the kits from the whole year on there on my shelf!


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!
