layouts from studio calico's double scoop

This month's  Double Scoop kits were incredible to work with! So many pretty papers, thickers and embellishments! I'm so glad I had a little extra time to make some layouts this month after I was finished making my Project Life spreads!

This first layout was inspired by the Lindsay Letters stamp set. I stamped the diamond outlines all over my background. Then I used the blank cut file and my silhouette to cut out the patterned paper. I used the stamp to outline where I wanted to cut my photos and then cut them by hand. I filled in the remaining shapes with the other stamps. Very different from my typical style, but I had fun with it! 

This next layout came together faster than probably any other layout I've ever made. It only took me around 45 minutes! I wish I knew why so I could repeat it next time, but all I know is that the papers and embellishments just fell into place and then I was done. I loved this moment when Alec's friends arrived for his surprise 18th birthday party and I was glad I was there to get a quick photo! I love those green thickers from the Thataway collection and that cloud paper from My Mind's Eye is so cute (I love the other side of it too)! The strips of words were cut from a Maggie Holmes paper that's in her new collection.

On this last layout, I used a recent favorite photo of Mason. The "what's happening" sticker inspired a layout listing what Mason was into over this summer. I came up with most of them and then asked him to help me come up with a few more and then stamped them at the bottom with the alpha roller stamp included with this month's Project Life kit!

So that's the first three, and I have a couple more I'll be sharing soon!
