Follow Your Heart with SEI

Friday greetings to you! I have a pretty SEI project to share with you today.
 
My project today features the Spiral Bound Journal and the Always Yours collection. I wanted a pretty journal that I can use as a mash up for inspirational thoughts and quotes as well as to document some fun mom memories and moments for reflection.
 
 
I began by choosing my focal point papers, then trimming them to size. I adjusted the left border by adding another layer just to the left, then embellishing the transition space with a touch of eyelet lace that I had on my desk. I stitched around all of those layers, then adhered.
 

The sentiment chipboard was inked with a soft green chalk ink and layered with a coordinating sticker from the collection and a flourish that I cut using a die and my die cut machine. I added the tiny grey chipboard heart in the bottom right corner.
 
 
Here you will see my first two interior pages. I kept it fairly simple but thought that the quote was perfect to grace the intro page vellum pocket. This collection is so lovely, the finish of the papers and the foil and pearl accents are amazing.

Happy Heart featuring SEI's Always Yours

Saturday greetings to you! I hope you are having a nice weekend so far. I have a project to share with you today featuring some SEI products.

You Make My Heart Happy featuring Always Yours by SEI designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

My project today is a scrapbook page featuring the Always Yours Assortment Pack. By nature, this is a very romantic and pretty line. I decided to use it with some very non romantic type of photos.

I recently took my boys to the circus and they were so excited they could not behave to take a photo before it started. Since I believe that life is not all "Pinterest Perfect", I always scrap the funny and not so perfect photos too.  One of my favorite ways to show them is in a collage.

You Make My Heart Happy featuring Always Yours by SEI designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

The sentiment in the heart, "You make my heart happy" was just perfect for the page. I simply trimmed it out a bit from the doily border and it took on a new crisp look. I've used a mixture of grey, cream and pink for the page.

I really like the swirl cream background paper, it is silly and fun. To soften the borders on that layer, I used a border punch only on the right and left sides.

A few pieces of Kraft Chips and Silver Glitter Dots completed the page.

April Club Q with Quick Quotes

Happy Wednesday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Quick Quotes.

I have a page to share created with pieces from the April Club Q Kits along with a bit of mixed media and chipboard tossed in for fun. The kit has these really fun alphas and coordinating chipboard circle frames for them. They were so cute, I decided to use them in a whimsical way for my title work.

"The Sweet Life"

I started by using a bit of white gesso, then added a bit of modeling paste using some stencils. I used a splatter stencil and also a speckles. After that dried, I rubbed some Seabrook PowderPuff Chalk Ink across the top of the speckles.

After that, I used a variety of coordinating mists colors randomly, then misted with a bit of water to let them mix together. Then I dabbed them a bit and used my heat gun to dry the paper.

The sentiment cut aparts in the kit are so cute, they were perfect for my page!  The boys were enjoying some mini donuts at the circus and what a mess. That provided the inspiration for the mixed media here... the speckles are like the bits of sugar that were all over the place.


I assembled my title, then inked the frames with a touch of Seabrook also. The outer edge of my patterned base paper was inked with Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
