Using the pop culture line from KI Memories proved to be a lot of fun! The creative team found a lot of great uses for these products and especially liked using the coordinating chipboard to add color and dimension. Double-sided papers meant there were lots of coordinating scraps left to play with as well! Let's face it - we all need a little bit of color during the winter!
*Puppies* by Jackie Pettit
This colorful paper really draws attention to Jackie's photos! She created dimension using coordinating chipboard accents and used rub-ons to complete her perfectly placed title. Cute!
*Beauty* by Jackie Pettit
What a great girly layout! Using the flowered paper as her frame for the layout, Jackie places the focus on her beautiful photo. KI's lace cardstock is so fun to play with - it can be used in part, in whole, or even to cut individual flowers from - the pink really pops out with her black cardstock background here. Of course, who doesn't love coordinating chipboard?!
*Temptation* by Katarria
Kathy really fell in love with this line of paper - what a great color scheme! She wanted to use colorful accents to set off the black and white to make her layout really pop. The chipboard shapes went so well with the alphas that she couldn't resist using a flower in place of an "o" to match the other chipboard flowers!
*Barcelona Tapas* by Katarria
Forever a fan of flowers, Kathy hand cut them from her patterned paper to use as accents on this layout. Using scraps from her previous page, she printed journaling that her dad wrote to add a personal feel to the layout (which is part of an ongoing gift album). KI's red paper helped bring her photos together in the center and gave the layout an added pop of color!
*Thank You Card* by Katarria
Before she put away the last of her scraps, Kathy couldn't resist putting together this cute little card! Scraps from KI Memories are just too cute to throw away, right?!lly
*Hollywood* by melis_ga
Could this layout get any cuter?! Melissa's placement of the chipboard frame is a great way to draw attention to her adorable photo. Pairing bright colors and funky accents together is often a perfect combination, as Melissa has proven! Watch out Hollywood!
How do you do yours? Whether its about your family, your self, your kids or events in the news, having a year in review can be a great thing. Fast forward to 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years from now. Wanna know what happened in the month of March, wanna know your families big events or do you just wanna take a trip down memory lane - this is how you do it...
I love how Jackie (CamsMomma) has the 12 photos clustered to show pics of her family during the year. Proof that explantion is not needed.
Karin (mayerkt) has shown us an amazing 2 page layout of her 2007 year. Using the ACOT Transitions Kit, Anita Stergiou's Floriade and Kim Hill's Royally Grunged Papers, Karin displays her family events in severl clustered with journaling.
This page from Sarah (sarahwhithers) just cracked me up. Well, the title did. Great idea on showcasing her parties of the year. I love the colors she used and that the background papers on the 2 pages are not the same colors. And Sarah they is no suck thing as having to much fun.
Here is Cassandra's (Mommybruno) take. I love the poloraid frames used to display each months event. I like that she is giving one pic but several events that happened. And I love the backward staple.
This page from Egle (FairyMouseMom) made great use of ACOT products. I love the ue of many different lettering style and the sentence strip wrappers. Great job of showing the family events.
Angie (nun69) made great use of Kim Hill's Lots of Frame and her new Love and Marriage kit to make her Year in Review. I love the use of speia photos except for a few. She also has a great combination of photos and journaling for looking back on the year in the future.
Sara (Keling) used a different approach on hers. Instead of the 12 months of pics she chose to use only a few and journal some other events. I love her use of the rolodex card and frames.
And last here is mine. I do some kind of year in review every year and last year I started doing it different. I do a calendar for each month showing the news events in that month, But also add other personal things too. This is august of this year using the Joy kit from Janelle Paige.
Everyone did a great job and showed their year in different ways. I hope that we have inspired you to do one if you don't already and given you some ideas if you do. Have a reat 2008!
WOW--Karen Foster has some very fun themed papers for the Christmas season, and they were generous enough to send some out to the Creative Team Members to play with! Not only are the papers beautiful, but the cardstock stickers are sturdy and add a great deal to a page in a very easy way!
In Merry Christmas to Amie, Tristann has completely captured the playfulness of a photo of her sweet dog with Santa. The cardstock stickers and her stitching really capture a sense of fun!
Laura took an old photo of her daughter and blew it up for a nostalgic feeling layout. The muted colors in these papers really fit well with the lace and buttons.
Amy's Most Wonderful Weekend of the Year layout just sparkles with all of the joy of the season...the lightbulb and sparkly cardstock stickers really make the photos pop!
Jill took the cutest photo of Hannah, the Christmas Dog and turned it into an eyecatching holiday layout! Don't you just love the ribbon, stitching and rickrack on this one?? And the wire lacing the title letters together is pure genius!
Also included in the CT kits this month was one other type of theme paper for each designer.
Tristann really did a great job of using the cardstock stickers from the wine line on her gorgeous layout here:
Laura took advantage of the Marine/Service papers to do a layout as a gift for a friend. Once again, she took full advantage of the cardstock stickers that are available in the store to create a patriotic layout.
Amy used the very fun dance/ballerina papers and stickers to make an adorable layout for her Ballerina Girl. The way she cut out the patterned paper strip and highlighted it with doodling is excellent!
Jill (Mamasteng) has taken the great card theme of a poker hand and turned it into a sentimental layout with her kids and their cousins. The playing card on the layout are so fun with the patterned paper cutout and her doodling
