Family Legacy | Scrapbook Generation | Simple Stories

     Hey crafty friends!  I'm here today with my last layout from my Scrapbook Generation kit clubs.  I can't believe it's taken me three years to use them all up.  
     Today's layout is using the old Simple Stories Legacy collection.  It was perfect for some family photos we had done when Julia was three or four months old.  
     We had monthly photos with our son too, but they were in a studio.  I loved using a freelance photographer so we could do somewhere fun each month.  These photos were at a local rose garden, and were taken on the date of our 12 year wedding anniversary.  The photographer found that out and snapped some of us too!
     I also used this layout to show my use of The Best Glue Ever over on the ScraPerfect blog.  We'd love if you popped over there to see that as well.  
     Stay tuned for new things coming up now that these kits are completed.  Until next time...stay crafty!

Snow Fun | Pebbles

     Hey crafty friends!  I'm posting today with a kill a kit layout.  I wanted to use up an old My Creative Scrapbook kit, but there was so very little.  I went searching pinterest for the collection, and found inspiration from Mendi's layout.  
     I had several of the same washi/paper strips so I used them like she did, but I improvised with the ones I didn't and with my embellishments since I didn't have any of the ones she used.  I love how it came out.

     Out of this kit I was able to create four layouts, one mini album and two cards.  If I hadn't searched for the collection I wouldn't have gotten the last layout or the cards completed. I hope this inspires you to search when you are stuck and either scrap lift or make something your own.  Until next time...stay crafty!
