Freebies, 12 Tags and Peace

Lots to share with you today!

I'll start with another layout from the december SFTIO kit PEACE.
My fab husband helped me put this photo together-he made my vision come to life! (So thank you, dear husband of mine). Oddly enough, the layout is about my relationship with my husband:

Seeking PEACE

Scrapbooking from the Inside Out has the perfect emotion for the month of December: PEACE. It really goes hand in hand with what the holidays are all about, and it was so much fun creating with the kit for this month. I had so many different directions that I could go in, and I'm sharing one of those with you tonight!

This layout is all about seeking peace in my own life-I love the serenity that the paper brings. Although its such an emotional layout to create, it was easy for me to put my thoughts and feelings into words. I felt like the words were all I needed, and it was an important focal point for this layout.
Make sure you go to Scrapbooking From the Inside Out to check out this month's kit, it is gorgeous! I'll share more layouts tomorrow:)

Feeling Generous

For the month of November at SFTIO, it's all about GENEROSITY. I loved this kit, everything in it was warm and rich. (Why do us scrappers always use food buzz words to describe our favorite items?) Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is a monthly kit club that allows you to explore your emotions through scrapbooking. You are challenged to look into your inner world, and start scrapping all about YOU. It is a wonderful place to explore your emotions and meet wonderful friends. Check it out, and get in on the challenges- they might show you something about yourself you didn't know before! Here are some of my DT layouts for the GENEROSITY November kit.

Loss Layouts

Scrapping about Loss wasn't easy- but it helped in getting me to explore different kinds of loss, and how I felt about each of them.

This month is all about what our hearts are aching for-what we wish for, need or want. The YEARNING kit is an amazing blend of browns, oranges, and teals. Delicate flowers, rich ribbons and gorgeous shimmering papers. You would never think so many wonderful things could come in a little 12x12 box! Explore your heart and find out what you are wishing for-and what wishes you are willing to put on paper! Dive in!

This month, we're exploring STRENGTH at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. This kit includes Navy, Pale Green, Fuschia, and Goldenrod hues that can really make you think tough! The grungeboard is perfect for creating an altered item, and the gears really make you put your mind to work. I loved creating with this kit- it was just what I needed to work through this month's changes in life.

My Dream Design Team

This month has been a difficult one, since the hubby has been away, and the little bug refuses to sleep. But I got good news just when I needed it! Rachel from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out gave me a call this past weekend- and I was just thrilled to hear that I will be joining their new design team. I have been a member of SFTIO since last June, and I am so excited to start creating with the amazing kits they have put together. SFTIO is all about expressing your inner thoughts and emotions through scrapbooking. It's really an awesome thing to make scrapbooking about YOU, not just about everyone else in your life. As important as it is to scrap about your family and friends, we really should start being selfish with our scrapping. Our pages can be about us too! You have to make sure to check the site out, it's an awesome place with tons of inspiration! Hope we see you there!

Snow Day

Sharing a layout a made after our crazy snow in NC. I am more than used to snowy weather- growing up in Colorado it was not unheard of to be going to school in 6 inches of snow. But when we got 2 inches in NC this past month, the town shut down and we didn't have any school or work. It was so much fun to be 25 and get a snow day!

Alcohol Ink

I've never had the desire to experiment with alcohol inks, but somehow, I caught the bug-and now I can't stop. I am still very much a beginner, but I am loving the effects alcohol ink can bring to so many things! For the moment, I'm showing you my take on some gloss-paper tags, and some ghost letters. But the possibilities really are endless for this stuff. I want to try it on wood- that will be my next venture, I think. I really recommend trying it out and getting a feel for how things work. Plus- the blending solution is amazing- you can practically start all over again if you feel like your project has become a blob. Enjoy! Let me know if you try it!

Theater Inspiration

I wanted to make this LO for a while, but finally got around to it. I took my inspiration from the movie case of "Moulin Rouge", and I just love how it turned out.
