Ann-Marie Espinoza: The Herbs & Honey collection is one of those lines that I know I will turn to over and over again for years to come; mustard, pink, red…what’s not to love? For this 8.5 x 11″ layout, I used a few of my favorite papers from the Herbs and Honey collection pack, in addition to the feather cut file from the Silhouette store¬†and the title cut file that I designed (p.s. free download at the bottom of the post!).

I love a good embellishment cluster, especially when the products I get to use are as fun and colorful as the ones in the Herbs & Honey collection! For this corner of the layout, I used die cuts and transparencies, a wood bottlecap, mixed brads, mustard Candy Buttons, and paper feathers cut from various sheets in the 6 x 6″ pad.

To create the tone-on-tone look of the title, I ran a 6 x 6 ” sheet of the Corn paper through my Cameo die cutting machine and adhered it to my layout using a tape runner for the first part of the title and dimensional adhesive to the second part. I love the subtle yet powerful element it brings to the page!

When it comes to design, I love to break rules. I love to create unexpected color palettes. I love to break up grids. And I really love to use Capture products on projects other than traditional Capture albums. For this layout, I used all of my favorite new Capture products to document my fun bachelorette party this past Fall.

To juxtapose the sharp angles of the squares and rectangles, I used circular embellishments including stickers and die cuts from the Waterfall pack.

Have you had the opportunity to incorporate Attach Me Stickers into your Capture albums yet? They are a must-have for any crafter looking to add additional pages or memorabilia to their books without having to punch any holes!

For this spread, I used the Attach Me stickers to secure a mini layout featuring a Fresh Cut Snippet embellished with journaling phrases and Spice Market metal shapes.

I love the way the colors of the emerald + seafoam Attach Me stickers complement the colors in the mini layout so well! Mixing and matching is my favorite way to go.

I love a fresh start, so I thought I would capitalize on the beginning of a fresh and exciting new year by making a 2014 introductory page for my Capture album. I used a Fresh Cut Desgner Journal Insert and embellished it with a bunch of my favorite embellishments from the same line.

For the word “fourteen,” I used yellow letter stickers from the Fresh Cut Wqterfall Pack. I also incorporated die cuts and transparencies, Snippets, vellum tape stickers, title stickers, and the paper flower kit to bring the whole design together. I think it’s important to remember that not every page in your scrapbook needs to have photos. Sometimes a simple title and a sentence can work just as well to convey a message as a traditional layout!
