From The Card Kitchen February 2012 kit: Jillibean Soup - Sweet & Sour - papers and stickers, Doodlebug card base. I added an SRM sticker to the inside, part of which can be seen when the card is closed.

A day on the Mall

Sometimes I get stuck on a scrapbook page and it never seems quite right. On this one my problem was embellishing. The layout itself was a snap, but it looked very flat just with the map and paper (Echo Park - Little Boy). But most of the embellishments I tried seemed to overshadow the photos. So I settled for washi tape (Bella Blvd) and buttons (unknown).
Other: Thickers, Jenni Bowlin mini alphas, Jillibean Soup vellum envelope, Maya Road kraft calendar, Signo gel pen, unknown cardstock.

Teacher Thanks

it's teacher appreciation week at my son's school and I used the Simple Stories - Elementary - collection to make 4 decorated jars that I filled with Ghirardelli chocolate squares. Here are two of them, the other two went out before I got the picture...
Other: Jillibean Soup sticker tags (Dutch Mustard) and hemp. I attached the paper to the plastic with score-tape.

Here is a card I made for his homeroom teacher:
The ribbon I bought at Apron Strings, but I can't seem to find the manufacturer. I added Glossy Accents to the apple to make it stand out. The card base is from JoAnn's.

The next set of layouts are from our trip up north in October 2010.

I mixed Jillibean Soup Dutch Mustard and Apple Cheddar (papers, journal spot, alphas, stickers). The heart pins and twine are also Jillibean Soup. I added Glossy Accents to the heart in the center. Other: Bic marker and unknown cardstock.
