Family Time | Vintage Charm Classic Kit

Hello! It's Laura here today sharing a layout using the Vintage Charm Classic Kit, if you recall the design team is showcasing projects that document Family Time.

In my house family time is not usually any one type of activity, it can vary depending on the day of the week, the weather, the season, and even which of my boys is home for the weekend.  Favourite activities include games, movies, boating, kayaking, hot tubbing and the list goes on.

I began my layout with the intent to add as many photos onto my page as possible, doing the things we do when we are together.  I remembered that I had created a View-master type cut file a while back and considered using that for this page.  However, I really wanted to embrace the "time" aspect of the challenge as well, so I created a new clock cut file with the numbers 3, 6, 9 and 12 welded into four of the spaces, leaving 8 spaces open for photos.

I layered my clock onto a pretty Maggie Holmes patterned paper from the kit.

I wanted to create a tone on tone title, using the same cardstock that I used for my clock as well as the pretty Heidi Swapp alphas worked just perfectly for this!

These pretty glittered dot embellishments from Queen and Co. were sort of a blueish teal and white stripe until I coloured them with a Copic marker to coordinate better with my layout colours.

I opted for black and white photos to avoid a really busy page.

The wood words from Jillibean Soup are so perfect to adorn my little snapshots, I added a few other embellishments to my tiny trio of embellishment clusters.

I backed each of my clock numbers with a different patterned paper, and used a combination of of fussy cut flowers and flower stickers for my large embellishment area in the centre of my clock face.

I loved that this layout helped me to scrapbook photos that may not have otherwise made it onto a page.

I created a process video for this layout, you can watch it below or hop on over to my You-Tube channel.

Supply List: 'Blissful' patterned paper from Maggie Holmes Bloom collection; 'Moments', 'neighborhood' and 'family ties'  patterned paper from We R Memory Keepers Honey I'm Home collection; Pretty Little Studios cut apart garland flags; American Crafts Cardstock in 'Robin's Egg' and 'Cricket'; We R Memory Keepers Honey I'm Home collection die cuts and stickers; Queen & Co. blue glitter striped dots; Jillibean Soup wood words; Heidi Swapp Alpha Stickers. (from my stash: Staedtler fine tip felt pen, Copic BG13).

Thanks so much for visiting today!

family time in newport

Hey all, Michelle here! I pulled out my Summer Lovin' Daily Diary kit to document a trip to Newport, OR that my family and I took last month. We were there for about a week and I took lots of photos so the bulk of those are actually going to go in a mini album. But I didn't want to just skip over this trip in my family scrapbook so I picked out some of my favorites to document in some pocket pages!
The Summer Lovin' kits have bright, fun colors which are perfect for any summer project! 
Smores on the beach is pretty much awesome!!
On most of my photos I simply added a little tag or sticker, most attached with my tiny attacher for simplicity.
I didn't quite have enough photos to need 2 full spreads (front and back) so I took a second pocket page and cut it down with my paper trimmer.
In the top 4x6 slot I used a 3x4 photo and 3x4 card and taped them together on the back.
If you have lots of summer photos that still need to be scrapbooked there still a couple Summer Lovin' Daily Diary kits left (classic kit is sold out). I will also be using this kit to finish up my Summer Mini...only 1 week of summer vacation left!!!

Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit: Family Time

This week on the Noel Mignon blog we are sharing pages about our favorite ways to spend time with our family.
Hi Everyone! Jana Eubank here. I love summer time with my family! I love the relaxed schedule and all of the different activities we do together. This particular pocket page spread includes a lot of those summer traditions ... like parades, picnics, concerts, and backyard croquet. These are just some of the things we like to do together!

I worked with the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow elements from the Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit on this layout. I've mentioned it before, but I just love the primary colors mixed together with the warmth of the woodgrain.


I pulled in the kraft Prima flowers from the Vintage Charm Classic Kit to use her to continue the neutral brown colors.

I love using the letter stickers, die cuts, and epoxy brads to decorate each of the journal cards!


Aren't those little wood veneer words by Jillibean Soup the cutest! I love how they look stacked together on that rain cloud card!

How do you like to spend time with YOUR family in the summer? Have you documented those memories?

Project Life with the Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit

Happy Tuesday! Lynn here with a new project life page using this month's "Vintage Charm" Daily Diary Kit. Believe it or not there are still a few of these awesome kits left in the store, so grab one while there's time! 
Our theme this week is "Family Time". The challenge is to create a project showcasing our favorite ways to spend time with our family. The last time my crew was all together was this past March for Easter. Since my Dad has limited mobility dinner was at my parents house to make it easier on him. Our family always has amazing feasts - plenty of DELICIOUS food with enough left over for everyone to take home. The company is great and we have lots of laughs catching up with our lives. Here's my page. I used WeR Memory Keepers "Honey I'm Home" collection included in the kit. 
I love the cards in this collection - it made putting this spread together quite easy! Here's close ups of the cards, starting with the title card. 
I fussy cut a house and added it to my title card. Here's more close ups.
I love puffy stickers - they add dimension without too much bulk on your project.
I had to include a photo of the food - that's one of the highlights of our gatherings.
Here's the last two cards. I love Katelynn in this picture enjoying some coloring.
I typed some journaling on my vintage typewriter.
I hope this project life page has given you some inspiration to use your Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

{Family Time} Challenge with the "Vintage Charm" Classic Kit

Hello!  It's Monday, so that means it's Meridy here sharing a layout with you using the "Vintage Charm" Classic Kit.  This week the design team has been challenged to do layouts showcasing photos of "Family Time".  I decided to do a layout using pictures from December of 2014 of my family playing in the snow.  I chose these photos, because the colors matched really well with the papers in the kit.

I started out designing this layout with a white background piece of paper from my stash.  This white paper had triangles outlined in a pattern across it.  First, I placed the photos in the approximate area I wanted them to be.  Next, I decided to cut coordinating triangles out of some of the patterned paper from this month's kit and place them randomly over some of the existing "outlines" on the background paper.   When I felt both sides of the layout were balanced, I adhered the triangles.

 I stamped a few snowflakes using white acrylic paint onto navy cardstock and used a snowflake punch to punch those out.  I also punched some snowflakes from the white and gold woodgrain paper in this month's kit.  These embellishments were fun and simple to make.

I added my title "Snow Day" using the Gold Thickers that came in this month's kit, and the subtitle "On Mount Lemmon" using the mini wood grain alphabet stickers from the kit.

I finished off the layout by tying some of the Twinery gold and white twine around one photo, stamping a few more random mini snowflakes on the background, doing a little journaling right on the background paper, and adding "The Fam" sticker to the right hand side of the layout.  

I liked the paper combination so much on this layout, that I decided to do another layout using the same papers, but a different subject.  As a matter of fact, the subject is the exact opposite as the subject in my first layout!  Rather than the winter snow, the next layout is about a summer stream!  I think it's so versatile that I can use this kit to create so many different types of layouts for different seasons!

I really enjoyed mixing fonts, Thickers, mini letter stickers, wood veneers, and some handwriting to create this title.

A small embellishment cluster with a painted wood veneer and a stamped label peeking out from under the photo grounds the collage on the right hand side.

I couldn't wait to use the Pretty Little Studio paper cut apart banner pieces that came in the kit!  Again, the gold and white twine "tied" them together.  A little journaling, a few stickers, and some Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine was all the layout needed to be complete!!!

Thanks for looking at my layouts today, I hope I've inspired you to grab some photos and use your "Vintage Charm" Kit!!!

New Friends | Vintage Charm Classic kit

Wendy here today to bring some Family Time fun to your week.  Your challenge this week is to create a project showcasing your favorite way(s) you spend time with your family.

I documented some playtime with the boys as they are always having fun.  This layout includes our new friend as he quickly became part of the gang, lol!  To spice up the wood colored paper I fussy cut the rhombus shapes from the Crate Paper to add some boldness to the layout.

Some wood veneers to make a statement of the fun they were having and the light sticker from WRMK which I popped up on foam adhesive for a bolder statement.

One last cluster of items to further my story and lead your eyes down the page.

Thanks for joining me today.  I hope you've been challenged to document your family time.  Please join us at the FB page and share your pages you create, we'd love to see!
