19 Years Scrapbooking Layout by Samantha Taylor

In commemorating 19 years of marriage, Sam crafts an anniversary scrapbook layout with her husband. The tradition involves capturing a photo each year and creating a special book filled with memories

Sam envisions her future children and grandchildren finding joy in the evolving hairstyles showcased across 30, 40, or 50 layouts. She finds Valentine-themed collections particularly fitting for preserving these cherished moments. Reflecting on the most recent celebration held in the same town as their first anniversary, Sam chose the red heart paper as the foundation for her layout.

 Layering it with a 5 1/2" x 12" script word paper, she added a captured photo and a coaster from the restaurant where they celebrated. The finishing touches included a title and embellishments sourced from the Upgraded Embellishment Kit.

Better Together Scrapbooking Layout by Samantha Taylor

In the creation of the "Better Together" scrapbook layout, Sam expresses her fondness for polka dots and appreciates the playful twist of using hearts in this collection. She finds it to be a delightful variation of the classic polka dot, adding a touch of versatility to the design.

For this particular family photo, Sam opted for the heart dot paper as the foundational layer. She enhanced the layout by adding a diagonally cut piece of striped paper on top of it. Building further, she layered a 6" x 6 1/2" script word paper to frame the photo. To complete the composition, Sam embellished the layout with a tag sourced from the Upgraded Embellishment Kit and stickers from the included sticker sheet.

XOXO Scrapbooking Layout by Samantha Taylor

In the "XOXO" scrapbook layout crafted by Sam, the usual photographer takes a back seat as her husband captures a moment with his phone, prompting her to create a dedicated page for the occasion. Choosing the blue arrow paper as the foundational base, Sam employed a mix of leftover strips from the kit.

Adding four strips of 1 1/4" x 12" pieces to the top of the layout, she balanced the composition by incorporating one more strip of the same dimensions at the bottom. Sam then introduced a 4" x 6" journaling card along with the captured photo.

 The final touches to the layout included embellishments sourced from both the included sticker sheet and the Upgraded Embellishment Kit.

Happy Love Day fun fold by Leslie Turner

Leslie loves this time of year and says all the items in this month’s collection are just perfect for creating 'love day’ cards! She has created a 3 peak arrow fold to share with us which features several coordinating papers and stickers from the collection. And she is sharing her instructions for this fun fold with us HERE.

She cut the card base from red cardstock along with layering panels from coordinating papers in the kit. She laid the folded base down, traced each section and trimmed the pieces (mirroring the three on the left to the three on the right) to layer into the peak sections. She then dies cut a stitched circle from the red cardstock using a die in her stash and affixed a sentiment sticker from the sticker sheet to it for the focal.

The fun part is that this card folds flat for mailing and fits in an A2 envelope! See more of Leslie’s spooky scrapbooking projects on her blog!

I LOVE U carousel card  fun fold by Leslie Turner

Leslie likes all the coordinating papers and stickers and elements in the upgrades in this month’s collection and has used something from all of them to create this fun carousel card for us.

She cut the card base from light aqua cardstock along with layering panels from coordinating papers in the kit. Each of the four sections has a sentiment and an additional element either from the sticker sheet in the kit or the frames and tags and stickers from the upgrades. The card is kept closed with a belly band embellished with a pink wooden heart and stickers from the upgrades, and she added a heart-shaped paper clip to keep it open.

She embellished the inside panel with patterned paper and cardstock strips, and added sentiment
and lady bug stickers from the sticker sheet.

Little Love Bug hidden message slider by Leslie Turner

Leslie likes how all the items in this month’s collection coordinate so beautifully to create Valentine cards. She is a self-proclaimed fun fold fanatic and has created a hidden message slider card featuring papers and stickers along with frames and tags and stickers in the upgrades. Although she used a die set for this project, she is sharing the instructions she wrote prior to purchasing the die set HERE.

Using a die set in her stash, she cut the base and pull element from white cardstock along with layering panels for the base and pull element (using the dies a second time) from coordinating papers in the kit. She used an element from the frames and tags in the upgrades for the focal on the front and fashioned the loop for the pull element from white twine.

To create the surprise message, she adhered a sticker from the sticker sheet to a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed it and rounded the corners. She trimmed an additional patterned paper from the kit and adhered it to the inside bottom of the card base along with the surprise message and two red holographic hearts from the upgrades.
