My daughter turned 16 this year, and I’ve been making a few layouts to commemorate this special time in her life.
I used the new Kaisercraft “Remember Me” collection….a beautiful palette of red and black and tan.
The design is based on the Kaisercraft May Saturday Sketch #1 Challenge.
On the Crafty Power Blog, I shared the simple technique of how to “wear your adhesive on the outside” by using black glitter with my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Tape to create a sparkly border along my stamped lace edges.
It’s hard to see the sparkle, but it looks so pretty in real life!

I created this layout during a beautiful weekend away on a Scrapbooking retreat, nestled in the Rockie Mountains, at the wonderful Bull River Guest Ranch.
|This is the main lodge where we scrapped and ate the most amazing gourmet meals.|
|There is a hobby farm too….and this strange smiling goat.|
|These lovelies helped embellish my layout with their pretty feathers.|
No, I didn’t pluck them fresh off the birds….I found the feathers while walking around the grounds one sunny afternoon and added them to my layout.
The “S” is glittered too with Craft&Glitz black glitter.
All of the pretty wood embellishments are Kaisercraft also, and I punched those scallop circles with an EK Success punch.
The heart pin is Maya Road (kindly given to me from Connie Nichol who was scrapping across the table).
In reality, I said, “Hey Connie, your Diamond Glaze bottle is plugged…so she gave me a pin to clear the tip….and never got the pin back because I popped it onto my layout!” Ha ha! Thank you Connie for all the wood embellies too 🙂
When I saw the Kaisercraft Saturday sketch, I thought I’d give my daughter some advice in terms of journaling and found the PERFECT Kaisercraft Rub-ons from the “In the Attic” collection. I LOVE these quotations!
The ‘Remember’ arrow is a Technique Tuesday stamp…..and there is a funny story behind that too! Another friend from Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, Katharina Doyle, was sitting nearby, and I cannot even remember why I went to talk with her…but I ended up pulling some stamped arrows out of her trash bin! Yep, dumpster diving for layout embellishments!
I might as well admit that the rest of the Canadian Scrapbooker team helped me out too: Jackie Ludlage gave me the Crafty Power Tape and black glitter. Oh, and Cathie Allan let me borrow her stamping block. Oops…the scallop punches weren’t mine either (I forget whose!)
I guess this layout is truly a group effort! Don’t you just love scrapbook retreats and crops??
