The Reset Girl Creative Team February: Treasured Collection Scrapbook Layout

Hello Friends! I have a brand new scrapbook layout featuring the Reset Girl Treasured Collection! You can find it here at The Reset Girl Shop

This layout started with the story of my childhood dream of becoming a Vet and having as many pets as I could take care of in my home when I grew up! :) I used to sit on my bed, and dream of the day I could have my own family to love and care for! I began the layout with the hand stitched aqua thread using the We R Memory Keepers Happy Stitch Pen.

I piled on lots of different fussy cut and punched images from The Reset Girl Treasured Collection. ALL of the embellishments on top of the stitching are from The Reset Girl except the two metallic gold chipboard words and the two hearts. I love adding all the shapes and cutting the photo into a tag shape to coordinate with the design. All the house images are just the cutest! Foam dots are my friend when adding lots of layers.

The left side of the layout was made with the punched circles from the Treasured Collection and a title from Dear Lizzy. The background paper is from Dear Lizzy's brand new It's All Good collection releasing this March. I added a The Reset Girl word sticker the top pinched circle.

I added Nuvo Glitter Drops and Translucent Drops to the page for a different texture and embellishment. Thank you for visiting today, and happy crafting!

American Crafts February Scrapbook Project: Shimelle Head In The Clouds Layout

Hello friends! I have a new layout to share about the love I have for my kids. I love the colors in this Head In The Clouds collection and chose to showcase several of them with a plethora of punched hearts! The idea behind this layout is to tell the story of opening every day like it is an envelope full of hearts, ready to flutter and land among us. We just have to pick them up and appreciate them. 

I decided to tilt the envelope on the page, to make it seem as if it fell open and all the hearts scattered around me. I love the patterns that Shimelle includes in her collections, as they are SO EASY to create with!! 

You can see the hand stitching created with the We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy Pen. Lots of different tone on tone patterns are used to add interest to the page. The leafy punched bits reiterate the pattern on the envelope, and the plants in the photo.

The journaling is hand-written, and added to the Head In The Clouds Die Cut. I love the rose gold glitter Thickers used to create the title. It says "Love You, Today and Every Day". 

Here is a process video if you would like to watch how this layout came together. 

Thank you for visiting today, Leigh.
