Front Porch Kit Full Reveal "Happy Home"

Today is full reveal day for The Little Blue House's Front Porch Kit called "Happy Home" ! This kit is bursting with color and all things happy, with a mix of wood accents, fun fibers & fabrics, great printed papers & embellies too! You will also enjoy the special surface in this kit...It is a shadowbox from Maya Road! Perfect for your favorite family photos. Another BONUS with this kit is it includes a custom-designed, exclusive stamp set from Reverse Confetti.
Here the projects I made with the kit - first is a layout of a photo of my kids. I absolutely love this picture of the the three of them - they were all home and hanging together in my bed talking and visiting and it brings back memories of them when they were little and we'd spend the morning in bed watching tv in my bedroom. They are truly my blessings!!
Next is a two page layout featuring photos from a band trip we took with my youngest daughter a few years ago. It was hands down one of the best trips I've even taken and I was lucky enough to have my older daughter and mother come along too. I chose all the red white and blue pieces of the kit for my layout. The journal stickers in the kit were perfect for labeling each photo with a bit of journaling.
Here is another layout and it features a couple of photos of my son and daughter being silly together. They have such a special bond and I love capturing those moments of them. I used the polka dot house stamp to create the background on the white cardstock and fussy cut the flowers from one of the patterned pieces of paper from the kit. I layered everything on top of a strip of the burlap for added texture and dimension.

Next is a card that I made by layering paper scraps and a diecut bird that I cut using my Silhouette. I love that fat twine piece included in the kit perfect for a bird to perch on!
Last is my shadowbox project - again featuring my kids. I had a great time creating with this kit and traveling down memory lane remembering fun memories of family time together. Being an empty nester this is what scrapbooking is all about for me - having my fondest memories documented for me to pull out enjoy whenever I need a pick me up from missing the kids.

The Little Blue House Review - Crate Paper "Craft Market"

I have been a huge fan of Crate Paper products for a long long time so I was thrilled when I received some beautiful goodies from their new line "Craft Market" to create with from The Little Blue House! The colors of this line include teal, pink and GOLD - one of my favorite color palettes to use right now. The fun mix of embellishments - from the puffy gold stickers, the accent stickers, to the wood veneer pieces - are perfect for my style of creating layers on my layouts.
I used a couple of the journal cards cut from the "Project Glitter Paper" piece to start my layering, then after deciding where I wanted my photo to be I added the additional textures.
 I used some of the stickers flat and then used pop dots to give some of them dimension. I bunched up some gold thread and layered it under one of the popped up stickers.
I used the puffy stickers as accents on the flat stickers - the hearts on the bicycle tires and on the center of the camera.
The large wood veneer ampersand added just the right pop of color to my title to catch the eye and lead right to the photo
which is where I think the most important part of my layout is. That's me with my younger daughter!! This line of paper crafting goodies makes my very happy!! :)

Here's a list of supplies I used 

You can order all of these and so much more from The Little Blue House online store! And you can check out some of the other projects made with this line on The Little Blue House Blog.

I hope you have a fabulous and creative day!!

Hugs, Valerie

Bunny Hop Blog Hop with The Little Blue House!!

I hope you're having a fun time hopping along on our blog hop!! I am sharing a couple of treat bags that I made using the gorgeous Echo Park Happy Easter Collection , Crate Paper Wood Hoops, and the Doodlebug Sprinkles Vellum - which is such a cool product to use!!
 I used the "Happy Easter" patterned paper by Echo Park which has the journal cards on it. I chose to cut them up and feature them on the front of my treat bags.
I cut out the elements I wanted to use
Then punched out some of the wording
I then started layering - my favorite part of the process ;). I used some of the pink and green Sprinkles Vellum by Doodlebug as the bottom layer using my scallop punches and then layered in my cut elements
 I really love the way I can add adhesive to the back of the vellum to attach it to my projects and you can't see it through the front!! That's one of the reasons I've been reluctant to use vellum. I even used it on the larger treat bag as a type of washi tape effect  - and you can't see the adhesive that I used to stick it down - I love that!!
My blog is the last to visit - make sure you've left a comment on every one to win the Grand Prize of an Easter Basket filled with paper crafting goodies!!

 
Good luck and I hope you've been inspired!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
