Up Close and Personal with Melanie!!

I really really really LOVED this month's kit! I used up almost my entire kit and am down to mostly scraps...yay! My favorite layout this month was " Yum Smores" with the American Crafts: Campy Trails line. I love Daddy and Son photos...they make my heart so warm and full!

American Crafts: Campy Trails

For my title, I layered my alphabet stickers to add a bit more dimension. I liked the bold patterns for this line so I cut around the circles to "show" them more. For you gals that don't like bold patterns, don't worry, the other side of the paper is very neutral. I also used my sewing machine on this layout...I love to sew too.

I loved the felt cute! I layered my cabin with some pattern paper cut outs to make a little cluster of fun.

To top my layout off, I used Jenny's banner tutorial from last month. I loved the wooden buttons...perfect for the ends of my banner.

Okay, I think I used the word love way to many times in this post. But I seriously did LOVE this entire kit!

I'll be sharing more of my Simple Stories mini later this month!


  1. You were right to use the word "love" that many times... great use of that kit. I can't wait!!!

  2. You sure were right to use "Love" so much - I love your LO and love all the little details to it!

  3. I love how you layered the title and embellishments, a star layout Melanie!
