Life Crafted with Marsha


Hey friends!  This is Marsha, and I'm here today sharing a layout in my Life Crafted Album.  I used the beautiful August Life Crafted "True Stories" Kit, the Scrapbooking Add-on Kit, the This is Life "Stories" Stamp, and the Traveler's Notebook Stamp.

To begin the layout, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to fit as a full page in the album.  I knew I wanted to use the vintage dictionary page, that was included in the Add-on kit, as a layer on the page.  I trimmed it down, tore one of the edges for extra texture, and adhered it to the layout.  I was careful not to add adhesive to the top edge so that I could include a tag with some hidden journaling.  

Then, I went through the kits and chose some ephemera, puffy stickers, and cut aparts to use on the layout.  I arranged them in a grid- one of my favorite layout designs.  I also fussy cut some florals from one of the patterned papers to use on both sides of the spread.  To finish off the left side of the layout, I stamped a sentiment using the Traveler's Notebook Stamp and added a bit of ribbon to one of the tags.

For the right side of the spread, I trimmed a patterned paper from the Add-on kit to fit as a full page in the album.  I trimmed two more patterned papers and adhered them to the base page.  There were so many gorgeous papers in the kits, I wanted to use them ALL!  I added my photo and some of the fussy cut florals.  I used the "Stories" stamp to add the title and did some simple embellishing with a label, puffy sticker, and ephemera ticket.

I layered an acetate piece over a patterned paper and added them to the page using mini staples.  I couldn't resist adding a couple more puffy heart stickers- these are always a kit favorite!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have found some inspiration for using this month's kits!
