Layouts with the Far Far Away Kit

Hi everyone! I always wonder if anyone reads my blog anymore. I have sort of completely stopped posting for the last 4 months. I am trying to be more active on instagram and have been updating my layouts there for the last of couple of months. I am loving it and it is a great way to connect to other scrapbookers.
I wanted to post all the layouts that I made with the Far Far Away kit which is the January kit from Studio Calico. It was one of my most favorite kits. The colors and the patterns were just perfect. I also played along a kill your kit challenge and ended up making 7 or so layouts with this one kit and one 4x6 paper pad. I loved every single layout.
Here they are:

That wood veneer piece is actually a rectangle. After using bits and pieces from it, I cut the frame itself to create a triangle. I love pages with angles like this. It adds a lot of interest. 

I don't think I can get enough circles on my layouts. I used the print and cut feature on the silhouette to cut out the photos in circles. I also cut out all the background circles using the 4x6 pad with the silhouette. I don't know what I would do with this machine.

On this layout, I love those fruit transparencies. I stumbled a bit on the balance of the design on this one. But I still love it as I got my story told. The HARVEST title is actually digital stamp brushes from studio calico that I colored with the colors of the kit. I love mixing up digital and traditional scrapbooking.

This I think is my absolute favorite layout with this kit. I was inspired by a graphic design pin for this. I then designed the cut file with silhouette software and created my layout. The little bit of stitching adds texture to the page. But the circle has my heart and love that photo of my baby.

This is a fun grid layout. I tried to use a bunch of photos with Surya playing with a little cup when he had a whole bunch of toys strewn in front of him. It's funny how that works.

Now this layout is something that is very very different than anything I make. I took Surya's photo against a plain wall and removed the background. I then imported the photo into silhouette software and did a print and cut of the photo. I then used a bunch of digital stamp brushes from studio calico and printed them on patterned paper. I did the same print and cut with silhouette again. I adhered everything on a water colored background. It was a fun fun page to make.

I wanted to document Surya's swim lessons. His swimsuit was orange and goggles were blue so I decided to use this fun patterned paper as my background to have a nice contrast. I printed my journaling on vellum as I don't have a 12x12 printer.

I really love all the fun papers and embellishments I get every month. If only I had more time on my hands.... I would use up every single bit of supply I have.

I would love it if you followed me on instagram. My user id is neelanalam! I will follow you too.
Have a lovely day!
