Scraptastic Store - Webster's Pages - Best Christmas Present!

Hi everyone! It's Monique again with yet another (!) Christmas layout for you. By now you've probably noticed that I adore all those Christmas collections out there and because I bought so many of them, I'm still scrapping Christmas photos! This page is about a Christmas present I bought for myself: a Kindle Fire! And boy, is it the best present ever! I'm totally in love with this little tablet! I read my e-books on it, watch my favorite series and films on Netflix, browse Pinterest, check my own and other's blogs and catch up on Facebook!

I decided that this little treasure had to become a part of my scrapbook album and so I created this page using some awesome Webster's Pages goodies from the Scraptastic Store.

How I adore banners on my pages!! Not only because I really love how they look, but also because non of my scraps go to waste! I also use the strips at the bottom of the 12x12 sheets to create banners with.  

I used some of Juliana Michaels' Silhouette cut files as well.

The journaling is in Dutch; my apologies!! But it's pretty much the same as what I said at the beginning of this blog post. 

Here's the list of supplies I used, everything is from the Scraptastic Store.  If you click on the separate supplies it will take you to the product in the store.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today! Hope you've enjoyed my page.

Scraptastic Club - another Pinterest inspired layout!

Hi friends! Last Monday Leanne and I had another Pinterest inspired blog post on Scraptastic Club's blog. This is the pin we used:

I have to admit, that although I really love this quote, when I got started on my project I struggled a bit to find the right angle. But when I started going through my photos and found these two of my daughter and me at Platform 9 3/4 in London (Harry Potter fans know what I mean, lol), it hit me! Because what is more impossible than wizardry? So, when I had decided on that, the rest was easy … Here’s what I came up with:

Initially I planned to use the grey color in my layout as well, but in the end it’s less catching than I had imagined it beforehand. If you look closely you’ll find a few grey elements in the top left corner of my page: a grey heart and a grey sticker with “today”.

For my layout I used the fabulous “Best Day Of My LIfe” kit and add-on from June 2014 and some wood veneers from the August 2014 “Boys of Summer” kit.

How I love the flairs from Kaitlin Sheaffer!

Thank you so much for taking a peek at my page! If you'd like to see what Leanne did, please hop over to Scraptastic's blog!! And if you're interested in Scraptastic Club's kits (they really are the BEST ever!) then take a look HERE!

Have a fab day!

Happy Birthday!! - Pretty Little Studio

Here everyone! Welcome to another Pretty Little Studio “picture challenge”! When I saw the picture Melissa chose for us for today I immediately thought of a party (how could I not?!) and so, that’s what I went with!

I chose this photo of my family and me celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday, which is a bit weird as she wasn’t there herself. As you may know, my daughter is in the US for almost a year (attending high school) and last November she turned 18. As we couldn’t be with her that day, we decided to celebrate it anyway, but without her and also a few days early. We took pictures of our little party and made a film and then wrapped it all up and sent it to her. So, in the end, on her actual birthday we were all there!

I used the fabulous, bright & happy Birthday Cake collection to scrap this photo, which – I’m pretty sure – wasn’t designed with the birthday of an 18 year old in mind, but I think it works very well! The colors couldn’t be happier and the huge 18 is awesome! Also adore the bingo cards and the colorful tags!

Adore this tiger die-cut (even if his cake has only 5 candles, lol) and I adore that little polaroid card with the celebrating duck!

And this was today's photo inspiration:

So how about you? What comes to your mind when you look at the picture for today’s challenge? I would love to see! Thank you so much for stopping by again today!

PLS Products Used: Birthday Cake Collection: Pink Twill Number Tags, Polaroid Tags, Shipping Tags, Bingo Cards, Patterned Paper, Garland Flags, Tiger Die-cut

Growing Up - Imaginisce

Good morning! Today I'm going to share another Imaginisce project with you, using the awesome "Family Fun" collection. The photo is of my son and one of his friends on their first day of High School. Barely 12 years old they insisted they wanted to cycle to their new school on their own. Of course I wanted to make sure they would find their way (and that they would arrive safely), so I followed close behind (and took this photo ... not the best quality, as I'm cycling too, but it's okay).

Except for the Family Fun collection I also wanted to use the new Imaginisce "milk paint" and decided to color the text a bit. Very quickly it became apparent that the Silhouette sketch pens aren't waterproof so I had to treat carefully. Although it won't win any contest I truly like the result. 

I also used Imaginisce's cordless D-Stress Tool: 

Such an awesome tool!! 

Last but not least two close-ups of the die-cut boys I used. I dressed them myself too, how fun is that? They come with a whole collection of die-cut clothes and accessories!

Scraptastic Pinterest Challenge

Last Monday Nathalie and I shared a "Pinterest inspired" blog post on Scraptastic's blog. Here are the pins we used for our projects:  

Here's what I created using these photos: because of the girl with the book in our Pinterest collage I chose photos of my son and me at the school library for my layout. Books are a huge part of my life, always have been. So when the school board was looking for help for their library I volunteered straight away. For my page I used November’s Free Fallin’ kit and add-on which I adore!

I chose patterned paper with leaves (October Afternoon and Bella Blvd) because of the branches with the leaves in our collage. Then for the punched out hearts I used an old book page and punched out hearts as well (the old book page comes from my own stash):

For the title I used alpha stickers from Elle’s Studio and the design was obviously also derived from the Pinterest collage:

And I thought that the rug in the Pinterest photo resembled this houndstooth paper:

This was my interpretation of the Pinterest photos and cards we chose. For Nathalie's layout please hop over to the Scraptastic blog

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful weekend!
