Lifepages with GossamerBlue September kit

Today I'll share a lifepages spread and I'll tell you about my life pages. I used only GossamerBlue September Lifepage kit for this page.

What size album(lifepages) do you like?? After I finished a 9x12 sized lifepages album, I went back to a 12x12 sized album. I don't know what size is good for me!!! I've used 6x8 size for December album. I'm trying using various sized album. At the beginning I started on 12x12 size. But because I felt that the size is too large to fill with my photos. So I look for a new one, it is 9x12 size. :) Recently  I found awesome size! It's 6x12 size. :)
My page is usually simple and clean. There are not many embellishment on the page. It is because I use many photos or big photos. As I create a scrapbooking, I rarely use 4x6 sized photos. But I like to use the size on lifepages spread. I love the single embellishment on a 4x6 sized photo!! So it is perfect to use chipboard & sticker set from kit.
I often finish to stamp a date on journal cards with a tiny date stamp. The mine is that I bought it on local shop. I hope a cute roller date stamp will be released from GossamerBlue Kit!! :) I can't imagine the page without a coffee photo! I love all coffee in the world. The Instax shapre ps-2 is my second photo printer. It is a new fun toy! I like the white frame and the vintage film of it.
And sequin is a good accent on simple page like mine. What do you think my lifepages story? I hope you'll enjoy my page and the story. And I'd like to listen yours! Thank you for stopping by.

A layout with Bamboo stamp set

 Today I 'll share a layout with Bamboo Rose Stamp Set. Its roses and leaves have a unique stroke line. I wonder why its name is 'BamBoo rose' , because I've not seen a rose on bamboo.!! :) And I found the reason why it was called like this in Altenew online shop. As they were painted with a hand curved bamboo stick, and that is where the name of this set comes!! It's so amazing!!
 
 
 
 
I stamped three different sized images on white cardstock with black ink pad. (I used a versafine inkpad.) Because the roses and leaves have a unique stroke line, I didn't paint full image with water colors. I painted some leaves lightly. After drying watercolors, I die cut them using Bamboo Rose Die Set. I used a mini nipper for cutting dies.
 
 
I drew a heart shape on a translucent vellum with a pencil. The heart shape is for shaker box. Because I want to make a line on the heart shape, I did machine stitching with white thread. I sewed the half of heart shape by machine and I put some sequins in it. I have sewn all of the remaining part. 


 
I ebellished with bamboo die-cuts & sequins and add a title. I finished to layer a patterned paper on the backside of white cardstock and splatter a black mist on it.
 
I hope you'll enjoy it and Thank you so much!!

A patchwork style layout

 
 
When I found Sizzix Bigz Die - Mosaic (Item #661194) , I'd like to create a quilting style layout. So I died cut it with patterned paper and did machine stitching every pieces. The stitching on paper can gives you a feeling of a patchwork quilt.
