Taco Friday: You Go Girl Daily Diary Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with a layout using the You Go Girl daily diary kit.  When I saw the "Taco Tuesday" sticker in the Pebbles package, I knew exactly what layout I would make.  My girlfriends (and occasionally my husband) go out every Friday night and have tacos.  It was perfect!

I used a background paper from my stash since the only paper I have left to use in the kit didn't fit the look I was looking for.  I pulled out this neutral paper to use which had the top patterns and stars and the bottom drops already printed on it.  I also pulled the large gold doily and the blue branding strips with hearts from my stash as well.

For my title, I knew I had to use that "Taco Tuesday" sticker as a part of it.  For the rest of the title, I did a little take on the quote from The Lego Movie where Wyldstyle talks about Taco Tuesday turning into Freedom Friday...but still on a Tuesday.  So I took that to influence my title for "Taco Tuesday...but on a Friday."  I took two of the 6x6 pattern papers to layer behind my two photos which are both 4x4 sized.

For the outsides of the photos, I used a few stickers to embellish it.  On the right side here I used a Pink Paislee epoxy sticker and two Pebbles puffy stickers.  The little BFF phone was awesome because these girls are my BFFs!

For the left side I cut out this quote from one of the 6x6 papers that says "happy girls are the prettiest" because we are happy when we have tacos. And the #girlsquad was great, and I did preface in my journaling that it's always us girls and occasionally my husband, lol!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I can't wait to see what you're making with this month's kits!

remembering the best times

Hey there!

Is it spring break where you are?

It is here and we've been lazily enjoying our time off.

We haven't gone anywhere amazing or done anything too exciting but it's been fun to be home and to relax and not have to be too many places like we would on a regular week. With one daughter in competitive gymnastics we get to travel a lot this time of year so we are happy to just be able to stay home and do nothing ☺

For this week's project I used the You Go Girl Daily Diary kit. It's adorable and there are still two left in the shop!

For this page I used the grid paper in the Daily Diary kit. The rainbow striped piece is actually the paper insert from the little foam Thickers. I just pulled it out of the packaging and cut a strip off and saved the remainder for another project. I love to use packaging and other kit contents in creative ways. 

This little frame was from the kit as well. I used spray mist in green and aqua to add some color to it and then added a couple of Pink Fresh Studios leatherette tags and other embellishments around it. 

One of my favorite parts of Noel's kits is the mix of alphas that can be used in titles. Here I used the foam Thickers from the Daily Diary kit and some puffy stickers and a chipboard word to make the title for my page. 

What have you been creating lately? 

We'd love to have you visit with us and share your creative ideas on our Noel Mignon Members Facebook page. 

Have a great day!

Fill, Pour, Repeat

Hey guys, happy Pi day :) This week I got a bit more creative with my layout. I found this pics of my daughter in the tub, doing what she always did with cups...filling them up, pouring them out, on repeat over and over and over again :)
I wanted to create movement with my page so I started with my photos. I would have preferred to have square photos but the nature of the images just didn't allow for cropping them that way so I rolled with it. Then I just started placing all of my embellishments around them, creating a circle. I adhered everything down except for the photos, added some messy circular stitching, then adhered my photos and a few more stickers. 
There are so many fun embellishments with this month's You Go Girl kits with the die-cut shaped, chipboard stickers, & puffy stickers. Not to mention those aqua alphas that are reminiscent of the old October Afternoon alphas that I used to love so much!

Photo Booth Props with the You Go Girl Classic Kit

Hey all!  I am back with another project this week.  I last minute had to make photo booth props for our upcoming girls night at church.  I again decided to reach for this months kit.  It has the perfect mix of girly color scheme and fun embellishments.

I put my Silhouette to work and cut out the base of all the props.  I then went through and looked through the different embellishments to decorate each one. 

The mustache and crown are cut from glitter paper from my stash.  The crown I embellished with washi tape and gemstone brads.  

The exclamation speech bubble:  topped with the chipboard words and hearts and outlined with the distressed marker.

Hat:  embellished with a prima flower and a puffy sticker.

Glasses:  pearl rhinestones

Speech bubble:  outlined the perimeter with washi tape and topped it with a chipboard sticker and rubon.

Mask:  outlined with the distress marker and embellished with chipboard stickers.

Bow tie:  Embellished the middle with chipboard stickers.  

The props I placed in a mason jar where I added ribbon from last months kit and the camera die cut to around the top.

These turned out to be a little more time consuming than I originally planned, but only because I was torn with what paper to use for each prop.  I love the way these all came together and I know they are going to make some really fun props for later this week.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Scrapping :)

{Tasty Treats} with the "You Go Girl" Classic Kit

Hello Friends!  It's Monday, so it's Meridy here.  I have been working with my "You Go Girl" Classic Kit this month, and I have been working on my Disneyland album.  Today's layout is another one for that album.  I just love how great the colors in this kit work with my Disneyland photos...

I really like the bright diagonal patterned paper in this kit, but once I pulled my photo it looked too busy for the background, so instead I used it as a mat for my layout...the result was a perfect hint of the bright diagonal paper, without being overwhelming.

I thought that the pretzel paper was an amazing addition to the layers on this page, since we LOVE the Mickey pretzels in Disneyland, and I even mention them in my journaling.  After I layered various scraps of patterned paper beneath my photo, I started adding embellishments that went with the food theme of the page.

The Thickers in this month's kit are so super cute.  I really like the font and the variety of colors, so I used them, along with some letter stickers I had leftover from last month's kit to create my "Tasty Treats" title.

I finished off the page by adding my journaling right on the page and a small embellishment cluster on the top left of the layout.  I added the trim from my stash to add a little texture to the page. I would love to see what you create with your Noel Mignon kit on Instagram #NoelMignon.  Have a great week!!!

Book Fair: March "You Go Girl" DD kit

Hi!  Sarah here with a layout using March's daily diary kit.  I really wanted to highlight the school book fair this year because it's something that I volunteer for each year and it helped me come to the decision to pursue my master's in library sciences.

The Pebbles paper from the kit was perfect since it's really a school themed layout.  I also pulled fun little elements like the typewriter from a die cut pieces and the little girl's head.  I cut one of the 6x6 papers in half to make it look like it's a longer piece to take up more room on the layout.

I used the Thickers from the kit for my title along with a pieces from the circle die cut and a cute puffy sticker and flower.  I love the way it all came together.

The large epoxy sticker is from my stash and I was saving it for this layout because of the quote on it.  I have discovered my passion for books and reading and I'm not letting fear keep me away from my dreams!

I cut out the "woo hoo" from a die cut hat piece because I liked the words, but didn't need the hat part of it.  Make your supplies work for you!  I added some sequins to help finish it off.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you will consider documenting a time when you didn't let fear get in your way of your passions!  This is a great kit to do just that!

Selfies from a silly 6 year old

It's a beautiful spring-like day and I'm happy to share my first layout with the You Go Girl kits from this month. I got both kits because they are so cute, and plan to mix and match items from both kits on my projects. This page, though, uses only product from the Classic kit.

Do your kids ever leave funny selfies on your phone?

I was moving pics from my phone to the computer and found these pics of my youngest daughter (along with about ten more pictures) and decided to use them for this page. The little camera and smile! chipboard went perfectly with the theme of my page.

It's been a bit of a crazy week and the west Texas wind lately has given me headaches. Truth be told, I made this layout late last night and decided to keep things quick and easy. 

Sometimes that is the best, though, to allow the photographs to take center stage. 

I used some strips of patterned paper along with some Pink Paislee washi tape strips. 

I drew some lines with the nozzle of my spray mist to create a spot for hand journaling. 

I finished off the page with lots of Simple Stories stickers and a mixed-alpha title using the chipboard Thickers and blue alphas from the You Go Girl Classic kit. 

I thought the little pink sunglasses were so cute and liked how they looked right on one of the pics of my silly girl ☺

Have a fantastic day!
