Zoo and Kid Layout Ideas with K & Company Actopus to Zelephant!

I've been looking forward to using the new K & Company Actopus to Zelephant range for ages and last weekend I finally got to work with them using some holiday photos from a few years ago and some more recent photos from a trip to Dublin Zoo.

No fun in the sun

I called the first layout "No fun in the sun" and used some Bazzill Java cardstock, Actopus to Zelephant Train Paper and chipboard animals from the A to Z range (you get them free when you buy all the papers in the Collection). The title is made from a mixture of Pink Paislee Fetching and Captivating Chipboard Alphabet letters and the smaller letters are Pink Paislee Chocolate Whimsies Alphabet Stickers. The photos were three 4" x 6" photos with a white border.

Pals at the Zoo

I called the second layout "Pals at the Zoo" again using a sheet of Bazzill Java cardstock as the background and a sheet of Colorcore Grassroots Green cardstock on top of that. I also used a strip of K & Company Actopus to Zelephant Words Paper some Pink Paislee Captivating Chipboard letters, Chocolate Whimsies Stickers and a couple of K & Company Actopus to Zelephant Animal Alpha Diecut Stickers in each corner of the layout. The photos were two 5" x 7" with a white border.

Now only another 9,999 kids photos left to scrapbook :-)

Autumn Layouts & Christmas Cards!

I am loving the new Pink Paislee Amber Road Collection! I used them in my Workshop at the Halloween MegaScrap and as I had loads more Autumn and Halloween photos left to scrap I kept going with the Amber Road papers, they are so easy to work with! I made these two from the scraps from the kit (which is now available in the store) plus some new full sheets for the backgrounds, Amber Road brads and Amber Road Borderlines Stickers:

I made these from the scraps:

and I even dug deep into my stash and found some gorgeous glittery letters and buttons I've been looking to find a home for and made these Christmas cards:
