I spent a very productive day scrapbooking with my February CKC kit "Hello Sunshine" while the snow fell outside. The bright colors of my kit at least gave me the illusion of spring, even as I watched almost a foot of snow cover our yard.

This first layout has a story that I've been wanting to tell for a while now.
I was happy to use a few of the border stickers from my kit on this page.
The next layout set a record for me - I used photos that had been taken less than 24 hours before! It features one of my favorite designs, the grid.
Some of my forged items found a place on this page, too. 

The last layout made good use of all the ampersands I included in my kit. I remembered a phase that my younger daughter went through - trying to stall bedtime by telling us that she had just one more thing to tell us, over and over and over again.
I stamped a few more ampersands to fill in some space on the page; fortunately, one of the stamp sets I included in my kit had a cute ampersand in a circle. I used the back of one of my kit papers and some very old foam faux-thickers for the title.
I still have plenty of supplies left in my kit so I should be able to make a few more layouts before this month is over. Let's just hope we're not getting a snowstorm while I work on them though!


  1. 3 very diiferent but delightful layouts.The grid one is a clever idea, I must remember that!

  2. Love all these, but the charm of that last one is really great!!

  3. Your forged overlay is the bomb. If I hadn't seen your step-by-step on how you made it, I would not have known it wasn't from a top design company. Love the grid and the way it can showcase so many of the fun bits in a kit. I'll be scraplifting that one next.

    The other two, great stories to capture. Have you ever tried doing a "process video" I would love to watch how you create these wonderful layouts.

  4. I am (literally) listening to the Blue Danube Waltz while reading the journaling on Layout #1! It was always used in cartoons when there was ballet & it automatically begins at the mere mention :D
    Aah, Susan - consummate master of the grid!
    #3 had me rolling in the aisles, so to speak. What memories! That cascade of ampersands was perfection!

  5. Fabulous pages - you're making great use of your kit!
