Madeleine 8x9 is Sublime!

Hello friends! You are going to love what Lisa has for you today! I love the creativity and out of the box thinking in this album. Tons of inspiration here! Take a look!

Here's The Story - Lisa Novogrodski

This time around I was inspired to do something totally different and FUN with my Misc. Me collection. I decided to focus on the Pocket Page Protectors but use them in a more 'out of the box" way!  I also wanted to incorporate larger scale photos to show you how those work.

I started with the recipe dividers and set my first photo against that to begin my story. I've embellished with contents from the Madeleine collection.

As you turn to look at my next page I have actually filled a full 8 x 9 page protector with confetti that I punched from Madeleine Paper and some vellum. I added little sequins from my collection.  On the outside of the page protector I adhere the wood "That's Life" embellishment. I used the Pearlescents and glitter paste to enhance the wood.

You can see my photo from the following page underneath. I took a large scale photo and cut it in half to fit that page which is the 8 x 9 Recipe Page Protector.

I love how it looks with the peeking through.

My next page is a collage I created in Photoshop. I prefer black and white photos when I am working with a busy theme. I like the continuity between the pages. I added many different photos from different times in my daughters life.

On the page following this one I used two different size photos and once more added sequins to the pocket to step it up a notch and make it more playful.

I love the unexpected in my albums. I again cut apart the page protector and added some sequins and stamped images. I sewed up the opening and made a little flip book.

For this little flip up see through pocket I simply cut one of the pockets from the Page Protector Variety Pack and filled it with confetti. I sewed along the bottom and embellished the front. I punched a hole through my the protector for my collage page and attached the little pocket with a ribbon.

I've started this book with a variety of photo and playful elements for my daughter to enjoy in years to come! I hope you are inspired to add a few of these little treasures to your Misc. Me books as well!

Madeleine Misc Me!

What an amazing idea for wedding pictures! I love the delicate accents the mixed media adds to this stunning project!

Welcome To My World by Lynn Shokoples

Welcome To My World Misc.Me page by Lynn Shokoples featuring BoBunny Madeleine Collection

Good Morning Everyone! How do you do your Misc. Me pages? By the week? The month? I do a little different system. My goal is to capture memories of events, places, vacations etc. I don't do a weekly spread or even a monthly one. These are all memories I want to document and some aren't even in the same year. This way I am never behind ( well that's my story and I'm sticking to it, lol).

For these pages I am featuring the Madeleine collection. I loved the soft elegant colours and I immediately thought of my daughters wedding photos. Her wedding colours were purples, so I quickly changed the photos to black and white and was on my way. I loved how they still popped out of the pages.

First I started with the Madeleine Journal Contents package and picked out several of the cards. Then I had this idea when I saw one of the cards had a frame. I fussy cut it and tucked Nicole's photo into the frame. This then gave me the idea of taking the Allure Patterned Paper and fussy cutting some of the frames to use on other cards. My next step was way too much fun!!

The next thing I did was use the new Lace Stickable Stencil with the Pearlescents. I chose the Island Mist and Blush to add some detail to the cards. I also used the Pearlescents to dot the centers of the flowers for some added bling. I snuck some stamping in on the corners of the cards using the small corner pieces in the Romance package and some Emerald Ink. Along with some of the chipboard pieces , the noteworthy and combo stickers my cards were complete. I love how they all add dimension without adding bulk to your pages.

Have you tried the new Glitter Pastes? Oh my goodness they are my new favourite thing! Along with the Stickable Stencils I wasn't sure I could stop.

Gorgeous Madeleine Layout!

This Madeleine layout is simply breathtaking! I love the color combos, they add a soft and elegant touch!

'Sisters' by Gabrielle Pollacco

Sisters_Layout_Gabrielle_Pollacco_Bo_Bunny_Madeleine_01

Hi Bo Bunny fans!  Gabrielle here with you today to share a layout I made using the beautiful Madeleine collection papers and embellishments!  The subject of my photo that I'm scrapping today are my two daughters.  I would say in general they get along pretty good, but like all siblings there's always a bit of good natured poking at each other that goes on.  This picture says it all.

Sisters_Layout_Gabrielle_Pollacco_Bo_Bunny_Madeleine_04

I just love using the new Stickable Stencil designs from Bo Bunny, and among my favorites is this scripted stencil from the 'Brocade' stencil set.  I also used a lovely little scroll design from the 'Bliss' stencil set as well.  But before I started, I gave the background area behind the photo a little spritzing with the new Glimmer Mist in the 'Tutu' color.  I finished the design around the photo with some blooms, some of the Kraft Wood designs and some fussy cut bloom images from the 'Elegance' patterned paper.

Sisters_Layout_Gabrielle_Pollacco_Bo_Bunny_Madeleine_03

To embellish the corner of my photo, I used some handmade fabric blooms from a friends etsy shop and some chipboard leaves from the Madeleine 12x12 chipboard.  I tucked in some more chipboard banner strips, jewels and Madeleine buttons. I finished the look with a twine bow.

When I use a design that is heavy on one side of the page, I like to balance the page by adding a small embellishment cluster on the opposite side.  Here I used part of a chipboard frame, some buttons from the Madeleine collection and some more Kraft Wood designs.

Brilliant Madeleine Home decor!

This beautiful home decor will add the perfect touch to your abode!

A True Love Story Home Decor by Rhonda Van Ginkel

A True Love Story Never Ends Off The Page Home Decor by Rhonda Van Ginkel  using Madeleine Collection

I am so excited to share my home decor project with you today. When I was assigned the Madeleine collection to work with, I'll be honest and tell you I had a ton of ideas and had a very difficult time narrowing them down. 

A True Love Story Never Ends Off The Page Home Decor by Rhonda Van Ginkel  using Madeleine Collection

I selected one of my favorite papers from the collection, Symmetry and used it for the left two pallet boards. Then I chose Songbirds for the next, and the one on the right is Roses. Next, I used the doily from the Bliss Stickable Stencils on the upper right 2 panels using my Pearlescents in Blush and Sugar. I applied them in a layered manner to create an ombre effect.

Next I used the script Stickable Stencil from the Brocade set and applied modeling paste that I had mixed in Sugar Glimmer Spray and Silver Pearlescents to. You'll see a few splatters of Sugar Glimmer Spray as well.

Once the doily and script mediums had dried, I added the birds on top of the doily using the stencils from the Bliss set along with Glitter Paste in Silver. My collage at the bottom is titled "Be Passionate…  A True Love Story Never Ends". 

What are some of your favorite off the page projects to see? If you create a project using the Madeleine collection, we would love to see you share it on our Facebook page.

This is such a GREAT idea from Evgenia! Using the Madeleine collection as well as a little mixed media to make your gift gorgeous and add a personal touch....this is a must do! Be sure to watch the tutorial as well!

I have prepared the step-by-step video tutorial on how to create a handmade personalized CD cover. I especially love and recommend these covers for weddings, birthdays and other types of special events that you have captured in photos.
Its not that time-consuming as it can look and it is lots of fun! Really really not disappointing project and usually much appreciated by even non-scrappers which makes it a perfect gift.

Delicate vintage today from Ilene. I love how she's used our mixed media in so many and unique ways!

Smell the Roses by Ilene Tell

I really love the new Madeline collection with its beautiful colors and darling images. It's perfect for so many projects and I knew it would be perfect to scrap this photo of my mom holding a baby bunny. It's got that vintage, delicate feel to it that's just right for vintage photos.


I used the new jewels to adorn the wood flourishes and borders and the Pearlescents to add more definition to the border around the page.


I also added some dots with the Pearlescents to the chipboard to dress it up a bit, and matted the green leaves on pink to help them stand out against the background. The new Gold Glitter Paste was very easy to apply to the flowers to give them more of a vintage shimmer. I also added a little sprinkling of the new Glimmer Spray and accented them with jewels.
This layout was so easy and fun to put together with all the coordinating elements and the new mixed media supplies. I really love how the chipboard flourish curls around the lettering on the background - it's as though they were designed to go together that way!
