Have you guys heard about the new Frugal Fab kits from Scarlet Lime? These kits are full of all sorts of fabulous goodies but at a steal of a deal (they are only $19.95 with a subscription). Some of the items included in the kit are brand spankin' new and some are a bit older but ALL of them are fabulous and coordinate perfectly. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I LOVED this month's Frugal Fab kit, moreso than the main kit. It included some brand new Pebbles and October Afternoon papers, both of which happen to be among my favorite manufacturers, along with items from Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper, Glitz Designs and more!
This first layout features mostly papers from Pebbles new Tree House collection. I am such a sucker for bright colors paired with white cardstock - it really makes everything just POP from the page.
The boys are enrolled in a summer reading program at our local library and they were just so excited to go to the library and pick out some books. I love the blackboard pieces by Cosmo Cricket that were included in the kit and love the way they pop off of the white cardstock background.
This next layout features an oldie but goodie photo of Darian. He was only 1 1/2 years old here - hard to believe he is now on the verge of turning 6! I didn't scrapbook while the boys were younger so I have lots of older photos to catch up on and this was the perfect opportunity. I thought the colors of Darian's sippy cup coordinated perfectly with the October Afternoon paper in the kit. And of course there is my beloved white cardstock splattered with a bit of Maya Mist in Turquoise for some visual interest.
I used lots of my favorite techniques on this layout - a bit of mist, tags, stitched hearts, buttons and ribbon. This was just one of those fun and happy pages to put together and I really like the way it turned out.
Just wanted to throw a reminder out there about the Pebbles Design Team call for applications. I LOVE working for this company and if you've ever considered giving a design team a chance now is your opportunity. You can find out all of the details here.
