Connie Fossenier here with Shades of Stamping from Stony Rapids Saskatchewan.  I am designing for a wonderful store called  Scrapbooking Fanatics online store located in St. Paul, Alberta. 
 Sandy Hobbs has created a new look and easy- to- shop online store.  You can also shop in person at her storefront at this location in St. Paul Alberta.

I created a layout with the July 2015 Kit of my darling granddaughter.
 The Hearts are cut from chipboard from Sizzix Bigz Die  and painted with Ranger Dylusions Paints .
I have people ask me how I plan my layouts, what rules do I follow?
  Here are some of the inspired  antidotes I find helpful:
Select a color scheme, journaling and embellishments that convey the theme or mood of your photo(s). 
 Do not be modest in your creative endeavors to combine layers that appear to not mingle with each other or hint at  being a glaring combination. Step our of your comfort zone and be courageous. 
 Choose diametrical  colors and  impression patterns that will  add a spontaneous impact. 
You can converge  a hodgepodge  of creative impressions that are in sync with your photos. 
The finally of layering embellishments and journaling will complete and unify your scrapbook page.
My theme chosen  "Pretty and Pink" and being a school photo, I wanted a simple and streamlined layout, the patterned paper combo added that extra punch. 
thank you for stopping by Shades of Stamping
Please feel free to email me at if you have any questions.
I do enjoy and appreciate your comments.

Such a cutie (I'm expecting my first grandchild in Feb and it's a girl). Wonderful layout. I like how you added Pretty in Pink.
