Merry Christmas! I'm posting a little present-opening layout inspiration to coordinate with your own present-opening experiences today. Aphra used the WRMK Silver & Gold cards from our December Project Life Kit to document her own Chrismas morning.
May your Christmas Day be special and bring you treasured memories!
Today's Layout of the Day is brought to you by TSR Designer, Brenda Ragsdale and the Simple Stories Cozy Christmas layout kit from the December Flavors of the Month Kit. Brenda used the ornamnet patterned paper in the kit as a quick-and-easy background, added a couple of fun photos atop some additional layered patterned papers for a fast and fabulous page!
Today's Layout of the Day - Project Life Style - is brought to you by TSR's Project Life Designer, Aphra Bolyer. She used some of the cards and embellishments included in the December Project Life Kit and the Simple Stories Cozy Christmas Sticker in the December Flavors of the Month Kit to whip up this adorable adorable Christmas pocket page layout. We coordinate our Project Life Kit with our Flavors of the Month Kit to give our customers lots of mix-and-match potential!
Today's Layout of the Day is brought to you by TSR Designer, Rochelle Spears and the Fancy Pants Oh Deer Layout Kit from the December Flavors of the Month Kit. The die-cut embellishments included in this kit are super-cute and provide lots of variety to spread across several pages!
This month's sketch comes to you from Becky Fleck at www.pagemaps.com. I love the simplicity of the sketch, which allows you to showcase photos and fun elements together in the center of the page.
You've been inspired by these two layouts already this week, but did you know that both layouts were inspired by this month's sketch? Why not take 30 minutes and create your own interpretation of this sketch. I'd love to see your layouts, so please post the layout or a link to the layout in the comments section below.
Today's inspiration comes from TSR designer, Brenda Ragsdale, and features the Gossamer Blue Get Happy layout kit in the December Flavors of the Month Kit and the December Embellishment Kit. This paper line offers a different take on a traditional Christmas layout - and also gives you the option to create a completely non-Christmas-themed page, if you prefer.
Hi everyone. Today, I wanted to share with you another title card tip. You may have seen the full layout in the gallery. If not, here it is again.
As you can see, the pictures are not exactly Christmas pictures. Instead, they focus on how my two boys spent their time during their break from school. The colors in the pictures were not quite Christmasy either, so I chose cards that had a white background to them. This made the page seem a little less busy.
For my title card above, I grabbed all of the black Thickers in my stash. Mostly because I wasn't sure if I had any s's or t's left in any of them. While all the letters were sitting there, I had the idea to create the title out of a mixture of different fonts. Since the papers are a bit whimsical, the letters fit right in. I think the fact that all the letters were black helped, too.
I also wanted to point out a tip for using the Simple Stories 2x2, 3x3, and 4x4 cards from the kit. I cut one down to use as the striped border pieces on my journal cards. Another I trimmed down to create a banner to attach to a picture.
Well, that's all I have for today. I hope you are enjoying your kit and your holidays!
I wanted to give everyone a heads up, that due to circumstances beyond our control, the kits are shipping out a couple of days late this month. Our most recent cardstock order, which was placed well before Thanksgiving and finalized only after I confirmed that everything was in stock and available to ship, did not ship complete. The white cardstock (which is in three of our kits this month) was not included in the original shipment. I was told that it would be shipping separately right after the original shipment went out, but in fact, it did not ship until this past Friday. The white cardstock is scheduled to be delivered no later than Wednesday, and as soon as I get it, I will finish assembling the kits and get your packages shipped right out to you. I will be burning the midnight oil to have all of the kits shipped out the day after I receive the cardstock.
I know this is probably more details than you're interested in, but I did want to keep you all in the loop about the extenuating circumstances this month, so you're not worried when your kits arrive a couple of days later than normal this month. In spite of the cardstock delay, I think that most of you will still have your kits before the weekend!
