White Pines Layout

How about another layout featuring the fabulous White Pines Paper – our featured paper this month with Close to my Heart! This layout shows the paper, more of the complements and more of those handy Picture my Life cards (the perfect titles or journaling boxes!)

This layout also shows how you can take just ONE piece of patterned paper and make it work for a whole layout! Our papers have so many beautiful patterned pieces but if you add more cardstock to your ‘stash’ you will be able to REALLY stretch your paper. This layout also has red shimmer trim, bitty sparkles and red enamel dots as accents in the layout.

Here is a close up of one of the accent areas- PML card, White Pines complements, bitty sparkles and red enamel dots (and some foam tape to give the elements lift!)

Make sure you get your White Pines before the holidays arrive!

November Featured Paper: White Pines

Happy November! A time of frosty windows and the beginning of our snow season (although if it holds off till December I would be okay with that too!)  November starts to bring with it all the fun of the pre-holiday season: baking, decorating, time with family, traditions, expectation of the big reveal of christmas morning… I just love this part! For you, November will also herald a season to get back to scrapbooking and for me it means getting last Christmas scrapbooked BEFORE this Christmas!

Whatever our seasonal photos and memories, White Pines will be a paper that fits in perfectly!   White Pines features a more traditional holiday colour palette with a hint of something a little different.  The complements and assortment can add a fun flair to your pages or cards!

The below layout features the paper and complements as well as some of the Picture my Life cards (one for journaling and two accents that were cut out of other PML cards).

Christmas morning and only four photos??

I have hidden some extra photos of that morning behind others- using our AWESOME flip flaps (see below)

They are a great way to incorporate more photos but also add in photos that might not feature the best photography 🙂
