Crate Life using Notes & Things

For the last couple of weeks, I have made about ten layouts to be published in Korea using the beautiful Notes & Things collection. I have many favorites from the line that inspired me to explore, including the chipboard frames, label stickers and tag assortment. I found it difficult to ignore these items while crafting my layouts and found myself using them over and over again.
Today's two-page pocket spread is great example of how much I adore Notes & Things. It encompasses a vast variety of the collection's offerings.
Recently, I started producing 8.5" x 11" Crate Life spreads. They're easy and fun! It doesn't take a whole lot to fill up the pockets and there's still plenty of room to go around. It's been an ideal way to hasten the scrapbook process without sacrificing creative potential. There's a simplicity to it as well that is the basis of the spread's overall design.
For my journaling to fit inside the non-standard sized pocket, I printed it vertically onto a section of vellum paper and added a pink pencil sticker as an accent. Gosh, it's such a cute pencil!
I then filled one of the pockets with a series of label stickers from the Notes & Things kraft label roll. Super convenient!
Last but not least, I tucked inside one of the pockets a mix of pretty sequins–a favorite technique of mine.
Undoubtedly, the tags, labels and frames are an added bonus to this delicate, detailed spread–on top of the ten other layouts I made this week. Thank goodness for Crate!

Floral Arrangement Cards

 I've been a long time fan of all of the beautiful flowers Crate has created over the years.
They're cute and elegant, and I really enjoy playing with them when scrapbooking or card making.
 It was no surprise then when I spotted the many exquisite flowers of various shapes and colors in the Open Road collection.
I fell in love with their 'vintage' feel and amazing tones.
 I couldn't wait to create cards from them in honor of this month's 'Stationery Style' theme.


My first card is soft and clean.
On a white sheet of cardstock, I trimmed and adhered sections of tiny flower patterned paper.
I then hand-trimmed random sized layers of white cardstock and positioned them in the center of the card with small doily pieces.
 Lastly, I added machine stitching and clear rhinestones.
In essence, the card feels pure, rich and romantic.



For my second card, I used vibrant patterned paper with the addition of Open Road's 'chipboard frames' and scattered sequins, which are super cute!
 I created a flower collage from different sizes and colors of flowers - a technique that is an absolute favorite on mine!



This time, I wanted to up the contrast by using strong colors and patterns.
I went the route of 'black, bold stripes' and 'orange'.
I extended the black/white theme to the embellishments by accenting Open Road's turquoise rose with a black/white chipboard feather.

Finally, I decided to make another card using flower patterned paper instead of flower die-cuts.
 I love the cute flowers on this vintage emerald green paper.
 It's fresh and bright–especially the beautiful yellow flowers!
 I went with even more yellow by housing Open Road's large yellow chipboard camera in the center of the card.
Behind it sits a petite transparency window filled with glitter–a kind of camera splash!
