CKC blog Jan 2019 kit Love Is Reaching New Heights Layout 2

Scrapbook layout #2 using Love Is Reaching New Heights kit made from my inventory

Close-up of the largest section on this mixed format pocket page is shown below. I love the mix of colors and design prints! Delicate yet a flair of whimsy:

Close-up of the bottom right corner is shown next. A rainy New Year's Eve yet that didn't stop us for having our 2nd anniversary date of 23 that we want to have within 23 miles of our home before our 23rd anniversary on 1.27.19 (IL River bridge on Route 17 is pictured plus a local diner visit for an early supper)

Close-up of the bottom left corner. I wrote "Leaving" on the driveway photo next to the planner sticker that says "our home"! I thought that was a clever way to caption this pic. The marina parking lot has a sign designating that area as "Jerry Strong's Landing":

Design notes and also a 2nd challenge reference is to the FB group "100 Pattern Papers Challenge":
a. something old= the thin gray with white micro dots paper scrap in the largest section is old paper plus the light gray paper that the 2 photos are mounted on in the bottom left corner is old paper plus the newsprint teal green chevron paper triangle in the top section is old.
b. something new= all the other patterned papers are new; decorative tapes are new; planner stickers
c. something blue= one of the coffee cup stickers is blue; and the floral decorative tape has teeny tiny dots of blue
d. something else= yellow copy paper was used to add very thin margins around the 2 photos in the bottom right section which helped to unify to the yellows in the other patterned papers

Below: CKC's selected kit to be counterfeited in January (Felicity Jane's "Hannah" that was revealed in October 2018)

Below: one photo of the papers I gathered together for my copy-cat kit titled "Love Is Reaching New Heights"

I am loving how I've been able to mix and match these papers. It helps that 7 papers are 2-sided which ups the numbers of prints plus the possible combinations!!! My older papers seen in the top row of the above photo are also coming in handy so far for the first two layouts (and dates) using this kit dubbed "Love Is Reaching New Heights". Keep on checking back to follow where we go and what we do!--Becca S [take a look at the 3 journaling sections for the bottom pockets: that is just 1 sticky note cut into 3 different size pieces and it looks like old ledger paper from 1940!!!]



  1. What great use of the papers Becca - love how you are documenting your 23 dates in 23 days within 23 miles radius challenge!

  2. Thanks for following this double journey, Maxine, for the anniversary celebrations and using my copy cat kit for the CKC blog January 2019.

  3. This is so cute. You did a wonderful job of incorporating thr 100 pattern paper challenge in here. The yellow definitely brightens the rainy day.
