July Scrapmuse Projects

This month I also played with the add on kits that Traci had at Scrapmuse, so most of my LOs also include some of the add on embellishments. The July Newsletter just came out - you can see it here. I wrote an article on different ways to use paint in your LOs.

I so love the way Em looks in this picture- such a summery feel to this one. I die cut the floral paper with the Accucut at Scrappy Papers and edged it with white paint and also used the punchinella in the kit as a stencil.

I borrowed these pictures from 1982 from my mom. I am the oldest of my brothers and sister.

Working in an 81/2 X 11 is not my usual format, but I loved it! It seemed so quick and fun! I will be trying this again. The flowers on the side are an October Afternoon stamp that I stamped onto cardstock and cut out.

I painted under the title on this page to make it stand out. The little birds are a OA rub on and the journal stamp and flowers are from the OA stamp set.

This one you have probably already seen- it is my favorite of my LOs this month.

We are mostly better now around our house and I am trying to catch up with everything and on top of that there was a huge lightning storm in our neighborhood on Sunday and it fried anything that wasn't on a surge protector all around us! We were really lucky - it only got our DVD player and internet modem. Mark is always good to keep our electronics on a surge protector. That is a lot cheaper than replacing a computer or TV! Hope you all are having a great start to the week! :)


  1. Lucy that new yellow paper is so pretty and summery!! Awesome job on all of these layouts!

  3. This are all so creative. Thay look even more amazing up close and in person.

  5. okay, i just reread my comment and the word 'say' should have been 'saw'
