Prickly Pear and Jack

It may be a bit past Cinco de Mayo, but I am celebrating FIESTA style using the new Prickly Pear papers from CTMH.  I’ve created six…. 6!… layouts from these papers, along with the stamp and thin cuts set featuring an adorable llama.  I used the “My Girl” complements instead of the Prickly Pear Complements to de-emphasize the whole cactus theme.  Luckily the “My Girl” complements use most of the same colors that are in the Prickly Pear papers so they work well together.   A sprinkling of Prickly Pear sequins adds a bit of sparkle to the bright, beautiful colors in this paper set:

I’ve also been working on outdoors adventure pages using the 4rth and final new paper packet: Jack.

Jack LO4

and these two awesome layouts that I’ve CASED from one of my favorite page designers, Brenda Rose:

Jack 3 LayoutJack Layout 2

These layouts are perfect for my Memorial Day family camp photos!!

Summer Dreams…

School is out for me in St Louis and our family is reunited in Virginia!!   I am loving the chance to get caught up on scrapbooking finally, creating sets of layouts for each of the paper packs in the newest Expressions 2 flyer:  No Worries, Dreamin’, Prickly Pear and Jack.  I’ve got the first two done: shown below and kits for either are available (including all pieces pre-cut, all cardstock, and all accessories plus instructions and pictures for assembling your own pages):

Pink and orange for a little girl…

Using Flip Flap for additional photos in the middle

I wasn’t too keen on the idea of rainbows and unicorns at first, but I actually really liked  the way they turned out. Using colored cardstock for the base pages makes them pop!

 

The No Worries pages are more subtle gray, white and off white with blue accents and are terrific for summer beach or cruising pages:

NoWorries2noworries1.jpgNoWorries4noworries3.jpgNoWorries6NoWorries5

Love, love, love these pages!!  I bought the thin cuts and stamp set for the beach umbrella and beach chair, etc.  They fit so well on these pages and I can’t wait to fill them with our summer photos.  My daughter and I are spending a week in Savannah, Georgia this month and these pages will be perfect!

I would love to get together with my No VA scrap friends once more this summer and say “good-bye”.  Email me your availability and let’s get together!

I’ll prepare these kits for working on together or to go ($30 each). Email me if you’re interested: mariefarson@juno.com

Summer Blessings to you all!

Finishing up Season Expressions 1 Layouts

Whew… I made it through my first year of college teaching!  This year has left me with little time for scrapbooking but I was committed to finishing pages using each of the paperbacks in the Seasonal Expressions 1 before I ordered some of the gorgeous new papers in Seasonal Expressions 2.

The paperbacks I had left from Seasonal Expressions 1 were ones that I didn’t think would be my favorites, but once again, I discovered that really wonderful layouts can be made from even the least favorite of these versatile papers. In the end I love the pages!

So, without further ado, here are the layouts from Some Kind of Wonderful:

The last paper pack I had yet to use up was Dreaming’ Big and I actually really liked these buggy papers, but wasn’t sure how to make layouts from them.  They worked great for my outdoorsy family hiking pics though:

See?!!?  No bugs at all on that page 😉

Stay tuned for fun layout from the Seasonal Expression 2…  From the Little Dreamers paper for pics of the little ones, No Worries paper for those beach and seaside vacations to Prickly Pear for fun, fiesta days to the Jack paper for those little lumberjacks in the family.  Can’t wait to dig in and create. I promise to post layouts and prepare kits for those who want to play with these papers along with me!

 

Happy start of Summer everyone!!!!!! 🙂
