Lisa here to share a layout I made of my husband and son using the Authentique Journey Collection. I just love the blue and brown color combo of this line, perfect for those "guy" pages or cards.
Foundations blue/cream paper
Promenade (the backside has the chevron pattern)
and the Noteables Diecuts: Every Day I Love You More & Together
I also added punched circles, cut in half, to make my border and added buttons and a flower.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with us!

STEP 2: Hold two of the strips so that the corners overlap at a 90 degree angle.
STEP 3: Take your scissors and cut through the corner of the papers, straight from the inside corner to that outside point.
STEP 4: You have two strips of paper with mitered edges that should match up pretty darn near perfectly.
STEP 5: Repeat steps 1-4 for each end of each strip of paper. Continue adding more stripes in various patterns until you have achieved the desired pattern.
And here is my finished layout with the patterned chevron stripes! I used Crate Paper's Toy Box collection for this layout.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Have fun creating!

By mixing the lines I was able to get the feminine and masculine look for the layout of 2 of my little ones all dressed up on Easter Sunday.
With this one I combined the Journey and Blissful Authentique lines. This helped highlight each boy with the clothes they were wearing.

I don't...boo! So I have been making up for the lack of real snow by playing with Pink Paislee's Snow Day line!
Have you seen these papers? So cute! I ordered them with the intention of making Valentine cards, but when I got them I was struck with not only how cute they are, but also how versatile they are! So many fun patterns and colors that would work great for winter, Valentines, baby, birthday, etc.
Here are the cards I have made with it so far:
I really love the colors of this line... and that chevron paper?! So fun!

I first started with my supplies: 12 wallet sized pictures, wide frame with glass out, 2 large binder rings and small 12 month calendar pages (which I printed for free from the internet)
I then cut my chosen papers to the desired size ( mine are about 5 x 7 )
and then I trimmed the calendar pages to fit my mini-layouts...
I ALWAYS ink everything so this was no exception. I also used my crop-a-dile and punched two holes at the top to fit the binder rings.
and I created 12 mini-layouts! Here are a couple of the completed pages. (this was the fun part!!)
From all of my excitement for finishing the project, I forgot to take a picture when it was completed. :( I hope that you can still get the idea. I am planning on making one for myself soon! It came together really quickly and made a great gift which can be customized to give any time throughout the year! If you give it a try yourself, please share!
I also have a winner to announce from the December sketch... wendycrowe!! Congratulations! Please email me your address so that I can get your prize out to you!!
Have a terrific Friday and an amazing weekend and Thank You for taking the time to visit My Scraps & More!!
