Scarlet Lime January--Vintage Love!

I always love Scarlet Lime kits, but with my penchant for blue, gray, pink, flowers, and vintage bits, I am in LOVE with this month's kit!

Here's a peek at the main:


And here's what I did with it:


The journaling reads: No matter where we go, as long as I'm with you, I'm right at home. Photo credit: Alexis Hardy (have I been getting my scrappy use out of those photos or what!)

A close-up. I'm generally a 12 by 12 kind of lady, but every so often an 8.5 by 11 is just perfect.

This next layout tells the story of our mini vacation to NYC (which included the best massage EVER! Let's just say a secret grotto and eucalyptus steam room were involved. Sigh.)


I am loving anything gray this season, so I amped up the gray on this layout with the background and the patterned paper. If you can see in the photo, the hotel walls were also gray--I approved!

The Frugal Fab kit this month has more of a bold, graphic feel, and some wonderful Pink Paislee touches--note the pleated ribbon and that fantastic blue alpha!

Here's what I was up to with this one:
This layout provides a bit of insight into the craziness that is the S & K household. In anticipation for our future trip to DISNEY WORLD (that's right--we're going in a few weeks!), and our stay in the Animal Kingdom Lodge in particular, we have taken to signing our emails with things like "keshet 'safari queen' starr." It's all very weird, but entertaining!

Love love love that pleated ribbon!

And my last layout is about my trip to see Wicked with my little sis. It was a truly fantastic show--the best part was watching her eyes get so big as the songs and effects lit up the stage!

I didn't get any good pictures that night, but didn't want to let the moment be forgotten. So I used the playbill cover and journaled about what a special night it was. I'm so glad I made it:)

If you're interested in one of the kits, they are still available over at Scarlet Lime!

My question for you is how YOU scrap memories you don't have photos for?

PS--I'm almost at 100 followers (!!!), so whenever I get there, I'm going to have a giveaway! Planning it now!

  7. Great layouts. I generally scrap pages with no photos like you did. Find some ephemera from the day or find photos online of the place or scene. (but only if it's just for my scrapbooks, obviously)

  8. I love that first layout, just beautiful!!
    When I don't have photos, I do what you did, I just use memorabillia, or write a large journalins space.

  14. Great layouts! I have the same problem with things like Playbills and the amazing shows where photography is a big no-no. I've done a Playbill album and always have a journaling page. Simple, but gets the job done.

  18. Great LOs! Love the detail with the heart on the Dec 6th closeup. Totally jealous of your trip to Wicked! I miss Broadway... I try and grab ephemera (sometimes coasters, business cards, or napkins),or postcards (becuase the pro's can grab the shot better than I can) when I can't take my own...
