a post filled with scraps.

I have four new layouts to share with you today. I'm really excited to share with you... because I am learning how to use my new camera and the pictures are finally turning out the way I would like them! They may not be that bright, but I like it better this way because the sun around here is very harsh on my photos. So, I take them when the sun is still up, but not over my benches on my deck where I set the layouts up.

Now, onto the layouts!

(studio calico may kit: granny's cupboard + studio calico nest stamp + maya road leaf stick pin)

This layout was inspired by this one by icenalys. I really, really loved the original and wanted something similar, but different at the same time. If that makes any sense at all.

This layout was inspired by Susan Weinroth's "I Have Loved" layout in the Studio Calico May Gallery. I really loved the "quilted" bottom on her layout and set out to make something similar. I think it turned okay, except for the uneven paper cuts at some points. I'm okay with that, though. It makes it look homespun.
Journaling: We love Madi so much. We are so blessed to have her! 2010

This layout was inspired by one of April Foster's layouts in the Studio Calico May Gallery (it had no title). I achieved the misted circle by taking an old glue dots holder and using it as a mask.
Journaling: Technically, it's from N.J., but it's close enough. As you can see, I loved it so much. It was half-eaten before I remembered a pic.

I can't remember the name of that border punch. If you know, please let me know! Thanks!

Have a wonderful Saturday! xoxo - Kasey
