Feeding the Giraffes

Football Layout from Donna

Pin It Hi, Today I did this layout using Kaisercraft's "Off the Wall" collection forInspiration Station in Stafford. One tip I have for you is if you have alphabet stickers that just don't work for you, simply add some ink such as I did with the stickers that say Spartans. The stickers were blue and were in the kit but just didn't show up enough on this background, so I took my black ink pad and dabbed them a couple of times!


Here I did a couple of things in the corner. I used the Kaisercraft "Off the Wall stamp set" that is sold at Inspiration Station, really awesome stamps for a boy layout! The ticket at the bottom is two stickers I placed on top of each that is included in the paper set, I also used the word stickers on the stars at the top of the layout. And you know that little strip that you cut off from the paper at the bottom that has the name of the company and other information. Well Kaisercraft actually decorates the other and you can use them as strips on your layouts! Talk about not wasting any paper! You can see I used the star border strip!

New Layout from Sarah

Inspiration Station DT: SOS

Hey everyone!  Today I have a layout using the products I received from the Inspiration Station store in CT.  I'm using the Bo Bunny Safari Line this month and today I decided to show you how to use a "themed" line with pictures that don't coordinate directly with that line.  Here, I use the Safari line, which is heavily animal and zoo themed, and I created a layout using a picture from one of my husband's training missions he recently did.  Please check out the video to see how I made it work!

Thanks so much for joining me today.  Be sure to check out the Inspiration Store if you haven't already.  All of these awesome products are currently available in their store!

Have a great week!

Project Life Style Wedding by Donna

Project Life Wedding

Pin It Hello, Donna here with a project I am working on for Inspiration Station. I am not a real big Project Life person, I like to focus on one or two really good pictures on a page, but I take and print a ton of pictures, and here is a way to add a lot of pictures to a page. So for my son's wedding album I took all the left over pictures and did some Project Life pages. Here are two that I just finished using MME's new line "Fancy That". This line is so pretty and a great way to use up those embellishments. In addition I made a Shaker box with a tutorial below.

Here is another page of the reception.
I made this little book to add additional journaling or a picture, a mini album in a pocket if you will.

And the tutorial....

Products used: MME "Fancy That" paper and embellishments Pink cardstock Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by today!
