I've Been on a Roll

I made it a mission to work through the entire "It Takes Two" kit, and I think I've done a pretty good job.  I have a few scraps and some bits and pieces left - and I may try to squeeze one more page out of them - or I may just put them in a bin for my husband.  (He likes to make cards for me, and it's easier for him to have his own stash of supplies.)

Warning: the remainder of this post is going to be really photo-heavy.  With that being said, here are the rest of the pages I've created with this kit (the first two are here and here):


Up first is an 8.5 x 11 layout.  I love the "forever" acrylic piece that came with the kit!


I've been trying to work on my layering skills, and you can see my little cluster of embellishments on this corner of the page:


This second page is also 8.5 x 11, and it features an older picture of my three guys.


I think this piece was my favorite on the entire chipboard sheet:


On this layout, I traded out my enamel dots for sequins.  :) 


Here's a 12 x 12 layout of my hubby and me.  I have trouble with word stickers, but I thought they worked well for the journaling on this page:


The little hearts on this page were cut using an old Stampin' Up! punch.  I'm trying to incorporate more older product and tools...it's not doing any good sitting on a shelf!


Two accordion-folded hearts came in the kit, and I only managed to use this one.  Sometimes larger embellishments are very difficult for me to place on a page...does anyone else have that problem?


This photo is from 2008!  I've had it on my desk forever, and finally got around to scrapping it.


The die-cut heart tag came with the kit, and I added a little hand-stitching at the top to tie in with the red on the rest of the layout.


Anyone else keep little strips of scraps in case they might use it on another layout?  Most of this page is made up of wee scraps.  :)


And here is the last page:


Once again, I'm working on my embellishment clusters:


This tag had a die-cut heart.  I backed it with a little piece of gold-foiled vellum:


I loved the arrows that came with the Crate Paper "Kiss, Kiss" collection.  On this layout, I used both a chipboard and layered sticker arrow.  They make me happy.  :)


You know what else makes me happy?  Sitting down and scrapbooking.  I've got some more layouts and a couple videos to share with you soon.



Until then, what have you been up to this spring?
