scrapbook layouts: close knit

Hi there! I'm back with a couple layouts that I made with Crate Paper's new Close Knit collection. This is such a cute line with beautiful colors and lots of really great embellishments. I especially love the wood veneer shapes

The first layout documents a road trip we took a few days before school started. I used a collage so that I could include lots of iphone photos from that day. This collage is part of a collection of collages that you can download for free at GingerPixel. They require Photoshop or PSE. If you don't have either of those programs you could use a phone app like Pic Collage or PicFrame to make your own collages.

The first is a layout with a photo of Alec that I took right before he started his senior year. I used the Pebbles alpha roller stamp that was included in the Double Scoop Project Life kit to list out his schedule for this year.

I love when I find a subtle patterned paper that's great for a background, but I could be happy just using white all the time. I love how the colors pop off of the white background. I use American Crafts cardstock available at Studio Calico here.


  1. Great layouts! This banners on the first layout are really cute!

  2. I am also in love with this collection and your layouts really do it justice! lovely work! love the stitching on the second layout!

  3. This is so great, Deb! The colors just pop and the 3x3 layout for the pics is perfect!
