Well…it’s coming up on December so you’ll be getting your new Little Black Dress scrapbook kit here shortly. It’s going to be just as fun as always so you’re welcome to be excited about it! But…if you haven’t yet dug into your November kit you need to get on it! And we’ve got plenty of fabulous project ideas pouring in from the LBD Design Team members.
This is Francine’s Inspiration Banner. You won’t get exactly how fabulous it is unless you take a close look so click on the pics and get an up close look at all her little additions!
Here you’ll notice that Francine used cutout “banner” pieces made of vintage book pages between each WhatNot based section. They’re all held on by tiny paper clips (not included in the kit) and attached to a piece of twine (also not included in the kit).
Francine hung her Inspiration banner across a bookshelf. I love that it’s a versatile addition that could be added to almost any decor scheme and that it actually lives up to it’s name. It would be a great source of inspiration on a day to day basis.
Francine combined different embellishments from the kit in a way that gave the banner a layered look without leaving them looking cluttered. Try putting together your own version and send it in so we can check it out…info @ littleblackdresskitclub.com.
This is Francine’s Every Day in November 12×12 Layout.
I really enjoy the splashes of color that seem to crop up in Francine’s scrapbook designs like in this layout the green polka page with the floral design. And above you can see how Francine used the Sold vintage piece accented by glittery green tulle and a red button (all from the November Lucky in Love kit) to provide her a journaling space on the layout.
Here’s another look at the page showing the title and the journaling.
It’s Going to be a Good Day! The title is so important for many layouts. We love that Francine combined an already complete chipboard sticker with the cream alphas included in the kit and accented it with the black flower included in the kit (many member’s favorite addition to the November kit).
Here you can check out Amy Heller’s 12×12 layout titled Christmas at 7 and Three. There’s nothing more fun than papers filled with numbers and words. They’re so versatile.
In these two pictures you can see a close up of a couple embellishments that Amy put together on the page. I love how Amy stitched a string of flowers on the layout and then worked with them to give them a 3d finished look.
This layout shows how fun the final layout can turn out when you work around your picture size and incorporate blocks of color and patterns. Amy added in different trims from the kit as well as cutouts (using a snowflake punch).
Amy’s Peace Christmas card is one of my favorites so far this season. But then…I love the glam look she created with the gold trim finished off with the gold/black button.
The different color and pattern combinations makes it fun to create projects with the November kit. They work perfectly for Christmas projects without being too traditional leaving you feeling like you’ve come up with something that’s just the “same as always.” And it works for non-holiday projects as well.
This 12×12 layout also came from Amy Heller. It’s got a fabulous story behind it and you can garner a few details by checking out her journaling around the edge of the 12×12 layout.
The stitching around the focal point of the page is terrific as are the crystal embellishments (included in the kit).
Amy tends to work with a lot of stitching, twine and embellishments. We love how she mixes paper, fabric and brads/buttons in her embellishment clusters. It makes for a more interesting finished look!
Two Different Angles…Same Messed Up Proportions…I think we’ve all seen our fair share of interesting Christmas trees, and sometimes scrapping a story is important. And that’s just what Amy did in this layout. Don’t be scared to scrap about a story and use the pics that depict the scene whether there are “people” in the pics or not!
