More Season of the Stars

Hi Everyone!  Lydia here and I have to tell you….I have really loved and used the Season of the Stars scrapbooking kit.  Funny enough, I haven't used it for one Christmas or seasonal layout even though its perfect for those photos too.  I will also admit that sometimes I am a last minute get it done kind of gal.  BUT the ease of how the Frosted Designs products go together makes it so quick to put a project together.  This time around I used this kit for a photo of my son's 14th birthday.

Aron has just turned 14.  His favorite number by the way, so I wanted to show this photo off and this kit was just perfect for it.  I cut the #14 from one of the Teresa Collins papers included in the kit.  They would be perfect for dates, birthdays, Christmas countdown, December Dailys and so many other uses.

I have a total addiction to wood veneer.  :)  I will loudly and willingly admit that.  I love the star bursts that come with this kit.  They are some of my favorites.

These tags both had Christmas/winter type sayings on the bottom of them.  I knew I could still use them by just tucking those parts under my photos!  Brilliant!  Like I said, I love how versatile this kit is.

Now is THE time to pop on over to the Frosted Designs Online Store.  The kits are on sale along with other great products.  There are also lots of new CHA products coming too.  So make sure you stop on over and fill up your cart!  I just placed my order last night and cannot wait to play with my new goodies.

Frosted Designs Season of the Stars Scrapbooking Kit

Hi Everyone!  Hope you are enjoying getting back into the swing of things since Christmas.  This was our first week back to school for me and my three boys.  It was a bit rough getting back into the 5:00am alarm!  But I've certainly enjoyed the routine, including some scrapping time.

Today I have a couple of layouts from the Season of Stars Scrapbooking Kit from Frosted Designs.  This kit is packed full of fun things!  I love all the gold and sparkle in it.

I just loved this "joy" paper and didn't want to cover up that part of it.  I considered cutting it for a Project Life card but decided to use this photo of Aden instead.  I had painted this penguin (his favorite animal!) in one of my after school pottery classes.  I was really pleased when Aden said he thought I had bought it because "it was so good".  Makes my heart happy to bring my boys joy.

The embellishments in this pack are right up my alley!  Wood veneer, washi tape, gems, and more.  I love having all those bits and pieces that I can pair with yummy paper.  With these wood veneers, I used silver and gold paint and gave them a make over.  A little gem in the middle completed the look.

I had taken these photos on a frosty/foggy day.  It was so serene and calm out.  Frost can be so delicate and beautiful.

Right now would be a great time to head on over to the Frosted Designs Store and pick up this kit and other goodies.  The kits are ON SALE!!  Buy two kits, get one FREE!!  Now who doesn't like free?!  New products are flooding the store as well so get your fingers on over there and do some shopping.  You don't even have to go out in the cold!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time!

Art of Life

I was so very excited when I saw Art of Life paper in my goodie box from Liz at Artfull Crafts.  I couldn't wait to play with this range.  I'm not normally in front of the camera, nor do I take many selfless but this photo was an exception.  I had just had my hair done and felt fairly good about myself.  :)  So what better way to kick off the new year than with a selfie layout.

This paper range is just gorgeous.  I love the negative specialty paper and how my doily could peek through it.  I used the numbers from the domino paper along with this brad for the "0".  I love this background paper and the way it looks as if its soft and blurry around the edges.  No photo editing on this page!

Sorry for the dark photos but its rainy/snowy/grey here in Colorado today.  What a way to start the new year!

I also made some fast and easy cards with this paper and a few other goodies.  Just love this lace and trim.

We are making a 10 hour road trip tomorrow for my husband's niece's wedding this weekend.  Sure hoping this snow/rain stays in Colorado and we are not following it.  Hope you all have had a good start to the new year!  Looking forward to sharing more crafty inspirations with you in 2014.

Till next time!
