Pocket Pages with Agnus | Elle's Studio Family Fun

Hi again :) I'm back with another share from my project life album using the Elle's Studio 'Family Fun' collection.

I kept the layout design clean and simple and let the bright happy colours do the work for these pages.

As always I began the month with a layered title card - combing several paper and cardstock elements with some simple alpha stickers and one of the fun sayings from the puffy stickers.

 More puffy stickers over my photo and a little bit of detail onto one half of the background with a white opaque pen were all that was needed to dress up one of my 6x4" cards and because I liked the look of the diagonal look so much, I repeated it on several of my cards by combining some of the patterns from 6x6" paper stack with designs from the full 12x12 sheets. 

A couple of cute puffy hearts and my favourite date stamp helped to complete the card. 

Using one of the tags from the bits & pieces pack over a small patterned background created a fun filler card to mark the start of the school holidays.

I mirrored the page design from the first page onto the second week to help the pages flow and I especially liked how the 6x4" cards with the diagonal design worked across both pages. 

I decided to cut all of my 3x4" photos a little bit smaller so that I could add more colour onto the page with the patterned backgrounds in each pocket and as always I printed my larger pics with a white border to help them pop on the busy backgrounds. 

I always shuffle things around quite a bit before sticking anything down, and I am happy with how the black and white elements helped to balance out all of the colours.

Family Fun | Elle's Studio Family Fun | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean joining you again today and I have a brand new layout using one of the brand new collections now in the Sassy store! It is the super pretty Family Fun collection by Elle's Studio!

I honestly did not know where to start with my layout this week as this collection is awesome! I pulled out this background paper and was immediately inspired to add some circular elements to go with the circles already printed on the paper. The thin strip of paper down the left hand side is the manufacturer strip, I trimmed it off the bottom of the paper as I love those stripes!

The 2 flair buttons I have used on this layout were not included in this collection, they just come from my evergrowing stash! My favourite thing from this collection are those super cute acrylic shapes. I just adore those colours and the cute shapes! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy blog today! Stay tuned for more layouts by me using this collection coming up over the next couple of weeks!

Get your Family Fun collection from the Sassy store now!

Happy creating!

Eat, Sleep, SK8 | Cool Kid | Tarrah McLean

It's Tarrah McLean back with you again and today I have a new layout to share with you using the awesome 'Cool Kid' collection by Crate Paper! This is the 8th layout I have created using this collection and I didn't have the entire collection's amazing what you can create with a small amount of supplies!

I didn't have enough of the wood veneer alphas to make a word from so I just grabbed the 'S' and the 'K' letters from some chipboard ones I had in my stash......I love how I could use just 2 letters and team them with the ephemera '8' piece to create part of my title. 

I used up some of the Cool Kid puffy stickers as part of my title and for some embellishing as well. The Bang! Zing strip of paper is from one of the patterned papers....I had to add it as my son has had a few stacks on his skateboard so the Bang was very appropriate!

A close up above of the Eat, Sleep, SK8 title! I added some black machine stitching around the outside edge for some added detail and texture.

I added the tape measure strip of paper to represent distance and measurement of how far my son gets on the skateboard before he falls off! 

Check out the Sassy Scrappers store for this collection plus loads more things too!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy Scrappers blog today!

Happy creating!

My Boyz | Cool Kid | Tarrah McLean

Hi there Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share another layout created using the super awesome 'Cool Kid' collection by Crate Paper.

To start my layout, I found a cool cut file from Just Nick Studio and cut it from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo, then using the Cool Kid 6' x 6' paper pad, I backed all the open spaces with different papers. I love how it turned out! The middle circle was backed using some plain red cardstock. Once I had everything backed I used some foam tape to adhere the entire cut file from the background paper.

I am starting to run out of embellishments from the Cool Kid collection so I am having to think of clever layout ideas that will allow me to use what I have left! I had the 2 boy chipboard pieces so I knew a brother/son layout would be best for this one!

I decided to cut my photo into a circle shape and I matted it with a paper cut into a circle also.

I hope I have inspired you to create some boy layouts? Make sure to check out the Cool Kid collection plus so much more in the Sassy Store now!

Happy creating!
