Smile
(Lemoncraft DT Reveal part 2)



For my LEMONCRAFT project today, I chose the pretty 'Forget Me Not' collection 
to create this shabby chic layout of the sweet Celeste!


The 'Forget Me Not' collection, all in beautiful blues,
is definitely one of my favorite Lemoncraft collections.



I love to add handmade stitching on my pages... 
To stitch these circles, I simply used different size die-cut circles
and following the circle edges to pierce holes for the stitches.



You can see my full DT Reveal right HERE on the Lemoncraft blog.

Next month, I will be sharing a tutorial at Lemoncraft
so I hope you will join me for a little step by step creative process post!

Parents of the Bride layout & Love card
(Lemoncraft DT Reveal part 1)



It's time once again to share with you some LEMONCRAFT creations.
Check out my DT Reveal on the Lemoncraft blog right HERE!

Let's start with this wedding-theme double-page layout
mostly created with the 'Heart Painted' collection:



When I first started scrapbooking back in 2004, double-page layouts were the thing!
Even though now I tend to create single pages more, I do still
enjoy the look of the double page and the double creative possibilities.



These pictures are of my friend Nathalie's wedding a few years back.
She looks so happy here with her parents.  Sadly, her mother passed away not long after.


Now, let's look at a fairly simple yet sweet card created by
some leftover 'Heart Painted' papers from my double-page above.


At first, my intention was to create a very fancy card with lots of flowers and bling,
but then I found the paper so beautiful in itself that I decided to keep it simple.
I cut a piece of the lovely Lemoncraft chipboard frame that comes with
 the 'Neverending Summer' collection to accentuate
the cut out butterfly from 'Heart Painted'.



Now come back tomorrow for some more Lemoncraft inspiration!!

It's the 16th of the month so time for the mid-month reveal

Click HERE to see the project reveal of the first part of the SATW DT
and HERE to see the mid-month reveal that premiered today, 
including yours truly!


As you can see, my main inspiration from the Mood Board
were the images of the old books and
the overall poetic feel of the images.


I decided to focus my layout on myself, and words that best describe me!


The paper collection used is the beautiful House of Roses from Lemoncraft.



Hope you like my take on the SATW September mood board!

Peaceful Heart
(White with 1 DT Reveal - Antique Moss)



This month's color challenge at WHITE WITH 1 has just been revealed today!


Antique Moss... a lighter softer version of moss green with a tint of yellow.



I dug deep in my stash to find the perfect paper for this challenge.
I found it in a leftover piece of Basic Grey paper.  I then tried to recreate the color 
on the chipboard with Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive distress stains,
dabbed with a little light yellow paint and of course my usual white.


I slipped a white tag behind my photo and amid my main flower cluster.
The beautiful square brad you see is from Bo Bunny that I thought went very well
with the rest of the embellishments and chipboard.


I wish I could take credit for this beautiful picture of a graceful swan,
sailing on a peaceful lake, but it was given to me by my mother-in-law.
I was happy to be able to scrapbook it!
