My papers:                                                                                                                                          


You will notice there's a few missing from the kit and I also had 4 forgeries. Can you spot them?

For the embellishments there are several pages, so I wrote a list..........

I included arrows and chevron washi tape, all the flairs I own, and will add flowers as necessary.

There are frames in various sizes plus chipboard buttons. I added some black stickers and will add words with white pen if I can.

I lso have chevron lolly bags in green and red. There're 4 colourful coasters from the hotel I stayed in at Brisbane. 

Ribbons and laces might be added if required. 

My daughter gave me an 8x8 album recently so I will be using that this month to scrap photos of the Coronation.


Welcome to our guest designer this month, Stacy.

My Name is Stacy James - I am the mother of two adult daughters, 29/30 Brittany and Caitlyn and two grandchildren Harper 3 and Tommy who will be 2 in July! My husband Dan and I live in Saint Paris , Ohio and have two crazy pets Max who I call my baby dinosaur because he’s an English Mastiff and grows more everyday, and Jack a Persian who looks like Wilford Brimley! I’m a full time adjudicator for the state of Ohio - but I am also a full time memory keeper ❤️ I’ve been scrapbooking since the late 80’s and have taught at stores (when they were everywhere) and now and proud to be on a couple amazing design teams - Traci Reed and Syncopation . You can more often than not find me on my Instagram daily and weekly on my YouTube since Anna has taught me how to utilize it ❤️! As for my style - it’s whimsical,colorful and wordy … I am a huge fan of the story . I truly believe that though we all love the ephemera and the pretty- without the story - the who, the what,and the why, we loose the grit! Because I’m 25+ years when someone grabs the album if they don’t know who is in the photo, where it was why it was taken what will they see? Pretty flowers and strangers. So my style in a nutshell is making sure my stories don’t leave strangers on pretty pages ! I can’t wait to play this month with all of you ❤️❤️❤️

This month's inspiration kit leaves the door wide open for lots of fun patterns and icons. And you've certainly mixed it up a bit. And how fun to have a specific project in mind. Enjoy that kit.
