Sunbeams & Snoozes

I don't often buy scrapbook kits, but I had picked one up from Studio Calico recently, and then had a little buyer's remorse when I saw it in person. I challenged myself to use the kit at least once before separating the contents and I decided they'd make a sweet layout of our Pound Cake.

I used the same sketch by Shimelle that I'd used not that long ago for this layout here. The items in the kit weren't something I'd normally buy individually, but I wound up really liking the papers, the Elle's Studio wood grain alpha, and the Jenni Bowlin gold rub ons. Guess my initial impulse to buy the kit was right all along. :)

I've just updated my Etsy shop and you can see one of my new flair in the embellishment cluster at the top of the page. There is a hint pink in the pattern paper and so the flair and label at the bottom worked well to enhance that little pop of color.

Hope you've been having a great week!


  1. Awww, kitty :D This layout is so cute, and I love the little gold star clusters!

  2. This is really pretty. Like it a lot!

  3. Well you would never know you had buyer's remorse from this lovely layout. Love how you used the tags for your title. Usually when I am disappointed I just have a hard time using my stuff {period}..kudos for making a challenge from yours.

  4. I am so glad I came to your blog and Dictionary's Creative space to cheer myself up. These kitty pages are putting a smile on my face. Love the snoozing kitty! Your soft colors are so sweet too! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Such a sweet layout :)
    I like the simplicity of the layout and also all of the layering
    I never purchase kits either, but I did recently and have been having fun. As the products and papers are not ones I would have chose on my own :)

  6. I love this layout! It is simple, sweet and has such a nice feel. Love how you used the JBS rub-ons. :) Evie

  7. Pretty layout... I like the *idea* of kits, but don't use them the way they're intended.


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment, I truly appreciate all your kind words!
