Hi MLS fans! It's Robyn with you today to share the projects I've created with the Coming Home collection. I had tons of fun playing with the beautiful mix of pastels and bright pops of color.
I did something that's rare for me: a photo without a person in it!
This is a photo I took of our house right after we moved in last
September, and the Coming Home collection was perfect for it in
I used the house stickers to create a border along the bottom of the layout. These houses remind me of the ones in our neighborhood -- they each have their own personality.
Banners always say "welcome" to me, so I thought it was appropriate to add one to this design.
I added a kraft doily from Maya Road and a heart shaped button to convey feelings of a happy home.
The next layout captures the playfulness of the Coming Home collection with the paper airplanes and clouds. I added a frame of red stitching , and it really helped balance the smaller photo.
Okay, so my stitching isn't perfectly even. It's actually pretty amazing that I got it straight at all! It adds to the handmade feel.
I added colorful buttons to the centers of some of the die-cuts and stickers for an extra pop of color.
I went for more subtle colors in this next layout. I added a filter to my photo to soften the harsh sunlight and it worked nicely with the more subdued colors in this collection.
The little tree stickers were a fun way to extend the bottom border.
And finally, a fun little card that would be great for a birthday or housewarming.
And another banner...this time, I added a button between each pennant to connect them.
Thanks for letting me share my projects with you. Happy creating!
Hi Jenifer here with you today to share some projects made with the Coming Home collection. I know I say this with every collection but I absolutely loved this line. First up I have a card using some of the little flags that are mixed in with the flowers and then I just used some scrap pieces to fill in the gaps. This is a super easy card that makes a big impression.
For the second card I used the House Stickers as my main focus. How cute would this card be with some fresh cookies for a new neighbor moving in.
Last but not least I have a fun layout. I took this picture in Wyoming just before driving into Yellowstone. I love how the clouds on the paper go with the clouds in the picture. I added a cute border under the picture using 2 different border punches and then a piece of My Little Shoebox ribbon on the top, add a quick, fun flower and you are done.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my projects today, make sure you come back tomorrow for some fun CHA sneaks.
Hello! Today I want to share with you how to make a mini mini album using just one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. I used the words "mini mini" because these are only 4 x 2 3/4 inches big. They are super easy to make and very cute.
I decorated mine into a picture book with quotes about home using My Little Shoebox's adorable Coming Home collection.
Hi Jenifer here with you today to share a fun quick layout with you. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and can sit back and relax now that the hustle and bustle is over.
My layout is a quick and easy one. I cut out a circle and then used a border punch a few trips of the same patterned paper then cut them out and re-glued them back on the circle to create a fun border. I used the Coming Home collection, and just like all of the other collections it is so easy to write out some quick journaling and place some foam squares on the chipboard stickers and you come out with a lovely but quick layout:)

With Christmas just a few weeks away my mind is filled with all things festive so I started to see the little trees in a different 'light'.
I cut out a few of the trees and then coloured over the branches with a silver pen. I then carried on to the leaves and created swirls and dots with the silver pen. I placed them on to the card turning them into baubles.

Hello MLS friends, Carol here. Today I want to share 5 cards that I made with the "Coming Home" collection.
"Hi" Journal Card
Supplies: MLS papers (Urban Green, Town Square, 3D Roll Up Flowers and Accents, Cardstock Sticker, Honey Dew Muse Cardstock Alpha Sticker, Lullaby Trim Pack)
For this mini card, I used the journal card as card base. I simply cut to size the 2 journal cards and folded in half. I find this a quick and easy way to make a card with little embellishing, especially if you are in a rush. Hence I also like to make my own embellishments in advance for such events. The trim rosette is one such example.
For the inside of card, I layered the 2 stickers. Aren't they cute?? This is a super easy card and I hope you will try it.
"Missing You" Card
Supplies: Bazzill White Cardstock; MLS papers (Park Avenue, Blue Jeans Mini Alpha Sticker, Kiss Mini Alpha Sticker); Foam Strip (Scrapbook Adhesive); Silhouette Cameo
To make this card, I used Silhouette Cameo to cut the window, popped up the window panes with foam strip. Somehow, I equate looking out the window to missing someone. Anyone of you had same feelings??
"Riding By..." Card
Supplies: MLS papers (Chocolate and Chiffon from Lovely Day collection; Park Avenue, Soaring Above, Urban Green, Cardstock Sticker, Honey Dew Muse Cardstock Alpha Sticker, Blue Jeans Mini Alpha Sticker); Foam Strip (Scrapbook Adhesive)
I love to mat each layer of papers with cardstock as it really gives depth to the whole card. Ioutline the mini alpha stickers to make it pop out too.
Journal card is really a great way to embellish a card. I simply add the alpha stickers, outline them and viola, its done.
"Home Sweet Home" Card
Supplies: Bazzill Yellow Cardstock; MLS papers (Soaring Above, Park Avenue, Cardstock Sticker, Blue Jeans Mini Alpha Sticker; Chocolate and Chiffon from Lovely Day collection, Kiss Mini Alpha Sticker); Foam Strip (Scrapbook Adhesive); Fiskars Punch
I love the cute house stickers!! Can't seem to get enough of them. And what's Coming Home without the Home Sweet Home!! :)
Supplies: Bazzill White Cardstock; MLS papers (Park Avenue, 3D Roll Up Flowers and Accents, Blue Jeans Mini Alpha Sticker); Foam Strip (Scrapbook Adhesive); Ranger Stickles (Star Dust); Distress Inks; Spellbinders Die
I love this card. My favourite among the 5 cards!!! Simply because I love flowers and 3D stuff!!!
Thats all for today. Hope you will be inspired to create!! Thanks for dropping by.
Hello MLS fans. Shemaine here posting today and I am sharing some card making inspiration using our Coming Home collection.
I love saving my scraps for card making because lately I have really been trying to use up all of whatever collection I am creating with. How many times have you cleaned out your scrap space and had tons of extra paper left over? All that paper is perfect for creating hand made cards for friends and loved ones.
How do I store my scraps you ask? Well that is the key to my organization. I have a single 12x12 bin that my scraps go in. When it starts to get 1/2 full, I make cards to empty it out. Oh back in the day I had a box with hanging files and I used to file them by color and season. Well after time I accumilated way too many scraps so I came up with plan B.
Alright, here's what I created with my scraps.
Thank You ( 5x6 horizontal)
Our new punch out leaves are a perfect addition to our rolled flowers.
Supplies: Park Avenue and Urban Green patterened paper. 3D rolled flowers, leaves and scalloped border. Misc: ribbon Accents: Liquid Pearls
I hope you are inspired to get out your scraps, stamps and border punches today. We love seeing what you are creating on the My Little Shoebox Facebook wall. Please keep posting your designs and you could be featured on our blog.
