This layout began with two simple photos of my brother with his niece & nephew.  When he was eleven years old, he already had SIX who called him “uncle”.  At that age, he acted more like a sibling than an authoritative uncle.  These photos were taken in the summertime, and I wanted to reflect the joy all the kids felt when their uncle came to play, so I chose to use some of our new Stitched Together papers in the background. 

In the video you will learn how I used two alphabet products to create the title and the tags on this layout.  The title was created using our Foam Alphabet Letters and I show you in the video how I used wax paper to make sure they were straight and evenly spaced apart. These letters can also be shaded to any color you like using inks, shimmer pens, markers, or paints.  Check out how I did that on my Valentine Card. 

You will also learn how I created that adorable little tag full of summer phrases and added the date onto the tab.  Both the tag and the tab were created using our new Tabs & Tags Thins cuts. You are going to want to get yourself a set of these before next month’s stamp of the month arrives (hint hint

The phrases themselves were stamped using the colors listed on the Stitched Together zip-strip with our Modern Typewriter Alphabet. In the video, I show all of the inks I used to create this tag.  I also took advantage of some patterns in our Stitched Together PML cards to add a little more layers to this layout.  I love using our pocket cards on my scrapbook pages!


I hope you take a few minutes to “hop” through all of our Creative Design Team video tutorials. Each one of these talented ladies did an amazing job with their projects.

Here is a List of the Items I Used Today

Create a Fall Fest Layout using the March Craft with Heart Kit

Each month, I have been posting a layout I created using the materials from the Craft with Heart Kits along with a process video showing you how to alter these kits to fit your photos. If you have not had a chance to take a look at these monthly subscription kits, now is the perfect time to do so.  Each one is mailed directly to you, is ready-to-assemble, and you only need adhesive to put the kits together.

Let me show you how I used the March Yesterday & Today kit.

Most of the materials I used to complete this scrapbook layout are included in the March Craft with Heart kit.  When I looked at the photos I had of my children after Fall Fest, I was inspired by the brown tones, fall wheat, and the “Hold Tight” title. Since I am recording my memories twenty years after the photos were taken, that phrase made me want to record a few additional memories of how I feel today.

Here is what the original layouts are designed to look like. 


To create my Fall Fest layout, I used the pre-printed background sheets and a few elements from the first layout, along with some Yesterday and Today papers & stickers.  Each one of these subscription kits are designed to match our current paper packs, so you can add more elements to your pages or add additional matching pages to your album using the current patterns. 

I also snagged a few elements from the second kit. The photo frame, script photo mat, and “list” were added to my page. These elements matched my design and enhanced my photos.  Do you see any other changes I made to my layout?

My favorite element is that little pocket. I created it by using a portion of Yesterday & Today paper that looked just like a postcard.  After stitching it down to the page, I filled it will little embellishments and my journaling card. 

I hope that you were inspired to try something new and take a look at our Craft with Heart Scrapbook Kits.  As you can see, each one is full of possibility and they are conveniently mailed to your home. If you happen to have a little extra crafting time, which most of us do right now, then these kits are a great way to catch up on some of your scrapbook albums.  Take a look at how inexpensive they are. 

Yes, you read that right! With the yearly subscription, you are paying less than $7.20 a kit! You even get FREE SHIPPING.  As an added bonus – anyone who signs up for the yearly subscription this month, will receive a FREE Journaling pen in the mail from me as a special thank you gift.
