Hydrangeas blog hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Hydrangeas Blog Hop! I'm excited to show you the layouts that I did using the digital kit. If you didn't start at the beginning, I hope that you'll go back to see the list of participants so that you don't miss any of the projects using the Hydrangeas paper or digital kits.

When I got this kit at the beginning of the month I knew it would be easy to use. I had a lot of fun blending papers and photos together.

At the Zoo

I had to scrap this picture of my grand daughter at the zoo. So cute.

I used a a template by Jump Start Designs from set #83 as well as her new kit called Beyond Serenity. I also used pieces from LorieM Design's Hello Memories kit and a few pieces from the Bonus kit. I picked these kits up at Pickleberry Pop's Pickle Barrel sale. The pink beads and pink splatter came from my stash... not sure which kit. But I used them since I wanted to pick up the hot pink in Kaia's sweatshirt. tfl!

Gift Bags

I made these gift bags using my Silhouette and paper from DCWV. They were so much fun to put together. The flowers not so much fun. But I love how they turned out. And they were much sturdier than I expected. I was able to carry them by the handles which I didn't think would happen without the handles falling off. tfl!

Egg Hunt

These girls were so sweet in their matching dresses. When I found the dresses, I couldn't resist them and knew I had to get them both matching dresses. It might be a couple more years before I can do this again since Nicola is big for her age and Kaia is small for hers. Nicola was awesome holding her cousin Soren. She is so careful and gentle.

For this layout I used the kit You Are So Beautiful by Lindsay Riches Designs. I got it in the March 2013 Scrap Stack pack. She has since retired from designing. I used a template from Studio Rosey Posey's Artscapes More to the Story edition. tfl!

Apple Trees

Our apple trees rarely bloom this early. But we had an extra cold winter followed by a warmer than normal spring. We are enjoying the blossoms and are hoping for a large crop this fall.

This layout uses a charity collaboration kit called New Life and a template by Jump Start Designs from one of her latest sets, #82. tfl!

We had a wonderful Easter with our family. We went to our oldest daughter's new home, ate good food and had lots of fun. We got to see all of our grandchildren. All but one of our kids were there and we got to visit with our daughter's in-laws as well. We hadn't had a chance to visit with them since last summer. Lots of fun! This layout uses a kit from the Scrap Stack pack. It is Fanette Design's kit Never Forget. Love the colors in this kit. I used a template by Fiddle-Dee-Dee; Freebie #87. tfl!

Kaia Loves

I'm sharing a layout of my 2 youngest grandchildren today. I love seeing Kaia interact with her little brother. I used April Showers by Krystal Hartley from this months Daily Digi pack and template by Little Green Frog Designs from her Puddles Brook set.

March 2014 Project Life

I'm so sorry it has taken me most of April to get these posted. I have had little time to get any scrapping done. But they're done now! Everything used in these layouts is from Weeds and Wildflowers  the Love Collection and Happiness Collection. On the 3rd layout, the border and shamrock are from WW Life 365 kit (retired). tfl!

Party Favor

Just wanted to share some other things that I've been working on. I made these flowers for My Church's Ladies Tea as a favor for the ladies who sat at the table I was hosting. The cups were filled with chocolate and jelly beans. I used my Silhouette to cut them out. Doing 8 was time consuming but it was lots of fun and the ladies enjoyed them. tfl!

The picture in this layout got posted to Facebook recently by a friend of my oldest daughter. I had to grab it and scrap it. Somehow I didn't get a picture of the group when it was originally taken. I used Club Scrap's Graffiti scrap kit since the color's were a good match and a template by Studio Rosey Posey. tfl!

Keep Shining

I've been loving having so many photos to scrap. It really makes me happy that my daughter-in-law shares pictures with me of my grandchildren. I need to take a trip to go visit in person. But until then I get to enjoy the pictures. This layout of my grandson was done using a kit found in this months Daily Digi. It is called Star Quality by Down This Road Designs. I used a template from Little Green Frog Design's Anthology Set.

I haven't forgotten March Project Life layouts. I'm working on them. I like to post the whole month at one time and I keep forgetting to download pictures to the computer so that I can finish them up. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have them done.

Thanks for looking!

Here is another layout I found that I hadn't shared yet. I started this one at the beginning of the year. Personally I'm glad that spring is here and summer is coming. This past winter was cold! I much prefer the heat. I used the kit Frosty Weather by Heather Roselli found in the January Scrap Stack pack. You can find this kit in Heather's shop at Sweet Shoppe. The template I used was found in the same pack of digi goodies. It is in Southern Serenity's Frozen set. You can find Amber's shop here.

Scrap Stack has a digi pack each month. It is an incredible deal since you get 4 kits for $5. I love the packs that Scrap Stack and Daily Digi put out each month since I find new digi designers that I like without having to hunt all over the net for them. Anyway, thanks for looking!

Cutest Little Thing

Here is a new layout I did of my youngest grand daughter. I used a kit from the Daily Digi pack which is featured today at The Daily Digi. I love the kits that Studio Sherwood makes. I haven't seen one yet that I didn't like. The colors are muted but rich and gorgeous. Everything used is from Willow Mist by Studio Sherwood except the large word art on large tag is from a charity collaboration kit called New Life, the written style word art on small tag is from Weeds and Wildflowers and the lace strip is by Manuela Zimmermann from Endless Love kit.  I also used a template by Fiddle-Dee-Dee from her As Long As I Live 2 set.

Beverly Beach

I have a new/old layout for you today. I was cleaning up some folders and found this layout that I had started last year for Club Scrap's Cape Cod blog hop. For whatever reason I didn't get it done then. So I finished it up to share with you. I used the Cape Cod digital kit from Club Scrap, some cu items from my stash and a template from the Cluster Queens Gimme Layers The Digifiles Edition set originally in the March 2013 Daily Digi.

Here is a layout I did of my oldest grand daughter. She does the funniest things. I used a kit called Blessed Life by Amber Shaw to scrap this picture of her. The kit was in March's Daily Digi. tfl!

Since it is April I have Easter on the brain. I've been working on the baskets for my 3 youngest kids for this year and ran across pictures that I took of them dying eggs. The kit I used, Everyday Snippits #3, by Create Wings (at Scrap Orchard) had the perfect colors. I used a template by Fiddle-dee-dee (also at Scrap Orchard) from her Shake It 5 set. tfl!

Here is a layout that I haven't shared before. I used a collab kit and template from Scrap Orchard called Beach Fun. I picked up only 3 parts of the kit,  one by Red Ivy, one by Create Wings and the templates by Fiddle-dee-dee. Thanks for looking!
