The Hopscotch collection remains one of my favorites ever…and that’s saying something given all the amazing goodies in the Shoppe! I admit that I’m a sucker for color – and I love using the power of emotion that color can evoke. Hopscotch contains most of my favorite colors – (orange, blue, turquoise) and this collection just makes me HAPPY! And the papers…oh my, they are beautiful :)
With the School Additions the possibilities are endless! Sure, you can do school pages. But the pencils, brads, notebook photo frames are perfect for everyday use, too! Just wait until you see what my fellow Shabby Artists have come up with <3
Let’s start with Kim’s layouts!
I LOVE the way Kim tucked in all the colorful flowers around the photo strip. And how cool are these pics from 1982? Kim and her sister!
Kim and I both have boys starting Kindergarten on the 27th of this month! Her journaling is so perfect for capturing all the emotions we experience as parents, preparing to send our babies off to school for the first time. And let me just say – Mario must be the designated mascot of 5 year old boys around the country :) we have tons of Mario themed school supplies ourselves!
Now let’s move on to see what Casharina has for us! Here we can see just how versatile your scrapbook supplies can be if you master the art of re-coloring!
Those photos are so sweet – I love the pink and blue combo here – combined with papers from the Darling Paper Pack, you can get a whole new look! And next up now is Rosy:
Rosy’s layout highlights one of my favorite things about the Hopscotch collection – the colors are so versatile! blues of the sky – greens of the trees and grass – with bright orange and yellow to provide contrasting pops of color! I love her design here that gets so many different photos on one page, too.
As usual, Kylie packed tons of detail into her page! The elements of the two collections combine so perfectly – and what a wonderful design! I especially love the white-on-white detail of the background paper – that white base color is a perfect backdrop for all that gorgeous color.
Kylie’s second layout is beautiful! I know I already mentioned how beautiful the papers are – and this layout showcases them perfectly!
Finally – here’s what I came up with. I added in the Sandbox Summer Additions and was amazed at how easily they worked together! I didn’t even have to re-color :)
We just got back yesterday from a long weekend spent enjoying the end of summer with good friends…a few days at the beach celebrating our last days before school starts! My kids are on the right, and the three in the photo on the left are life-long friends of my kids. It’s so awesome watching them all grow up together :)
So head on over to the Shabby Shoppe and pick up Hopscotch and Hopscotch School Additions! Hopscotch is only $5.95…and the School Additions are a steal at just $2.95! Both are ON SALE for a limited time!
Thanks for stopping by! Kylie will be here on Thursday with your Project Scrap AUGUST templates! :)
