Northwoods Rocking Chair

The papers are from Sun Kiss by Prima.

Boy, oh boy, I love Northwoods stamps. I do wish they had a better marketing strategy! I colored the Spring Porch Rocker with Loew-Cornell pencils and outlined with a Micron pen.

Most of the papers in this homemade kit are from Love You More by Pebbles. I also have bits from Tim Holtz, MME, Crate Paper, Cosmo Cricket, Elle's Studio and more.

I started the layout with a sketch from Citrus Twist.

A random brad and die cut from my kit.

The tape is from Glitz Design. The alphas are from Teresa Collins. The "summer vacation" tag is from Pink Paislee, I think.

This wood tag is from American Crafts and the "happy" sticker is October Afternoon.

Some beloved sticker hearts from Carta Bella.

I still love creating kits at home. I probably have about 8 going right now! This kit features We R Memory Keepers. It also includes bits from Basic Grey, Authentique, Fancy Pants, and more.

See that delicious polka dot paper from Chic Tags? I'm obsessed with it. This whole layout started with that piece of paper (or super thick cardstock, really). Then, I followed this sketch from Citrus Twist. I rarely start with a photo or theme in mind. I prefer to just play with patterns, colors, and textures first.

It's raining bits! The pieces are from Fancy Pants, Recollections, and K & Company. The lined beige paper is also from Chic Tags.

The journaling tag is from All Star by Echo Park. The sticker tab is from FarmHouse and "Papa" is from my Dymo. "Love you so much" is a stamp from Pink Paislee.

This sticker is why the layout ended up being about Papa. It matches so I slapped on! It's from MME and the banner is Basic Grey.

let's hit the road

This pile of papers was just sitting in my craft room floor waiting to be moved to the trash. It was such a pretty pile! I ended up piling it on my desk and making a layout from all those reject pieces. I think the papers are a mix of MME and Teresa Collins. The journaling card is from October Afternoon. The Kraft die cut is from Cricut. "Shine" is Heidi Swapp.

The papers are from Meadowlark by My Mind's Eye. The digi stamp is from Whimsy Stamps. Unfortunately, they don't carry digis anymore. However, their rubber stamp collection is quite awesome! The dies are from Spellbinders.
