Today I’m sharing the two portrait LO’s I did with the September card kit. True to form, I did 4 – 8.5×11 LO’s and a mini album, plus a bonus 6×8 LO that I’ll share later (it has 9 photos on it!).

This was the first LO I made with the kit:

traveling lion

I love this pic of Gabe – everywhere we go, he wants Lion to tag along by riding on his backpack. It’s definitely a shot in time of Gabe and what he likes!

The kit is full of vintage looking Farmhouse Paper Company papers and they have the best bits and pieces for embellishing – I couldn’t resist using the balloon and postcard to reinforce the travel theme. Plus, I love a little cluster of goodies!

The second LO showcases a new and exciting skill Molly learned this summer – blowing bubbles!


She was so proud of herself and insisted I take a picture…

every. time! It really was a big deal. ๐Ÿ™‚

As per usual, I added hidden journaling:

bubbles - journaling

And I created a focal area by smearing molding paste through a stencil down the centre of the page, then layering the title over that:

bubbles - title

I love these papers and discovered the best way to add pictures was by editing the colour on my photos. The papers are such muted colours that the photos were clashing with the papers – adding a slight sepia tone made all the difference and now they look like they belong with the papers.

There may be one or two kits left at the Paperie and trust me, between the exclusive Farmhouse product and the awesome stamp set, this is one to pick up!
