    The envelopes are soo cute and inspiring I have a gift card to give and lost the envelope can’t wait to find free time to make a few!

    How many different books do you have going at once?

    When do you feel the most inspired?

  14. LOVE your tutorial. I am a huge squeeze punch fan!

    Where do you find your unique papers for your projects?

  15. Anna says

    So where is the best place to find “found” paper?

  16. Another question…where do you find inspiration to put together your Kenner Road kits every month, and how do you decide which products to put in since there are so many out there?!

  17. Ooooh, I’ve thought of another one…do you have any scrapbooking crushes? i.e. people whose work you go giddy over?

  18. What a fantastic tutorial. I’ll be making these for sure.

    Where do you go to find found paper and vintage elements for your projects.

  19. Gretchen says

    What up KL! Great tutorial!
    You always take pics of your stuff against a green-ish/blue-ish piece of something (furniture maybe?). So what is that?? I think I need it.

  20. Kimmy says

    What are your main go-to colors?

  21. audrey says

    Cute envelopes!

    Is it 100% important for you to use materials that are archival safe?

    Is that actual sheet music?

  22. I love your paper flowers that you make out of strips of paper…do you have a tutorial on how you do that…or a basic explanation? And how do you store all your supplies (Besides your already completed album pages…I see where those are stacked ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  23. Phoebe says

    You are such a talented lady!! Gorgeous work!! Do you prefer working on layouts or projects? And how do you go about putting together such fabulous kits?? It seems like such an overwhelming process to me! So many options and styles out there! You always have such a great mix in your kits. Do you start with papers in mind or colors or do they just sort of happen? Thanks for the tutorial and for taking the time to answer our questions! You RAWK! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I just adore your work and your blog is definitely a favorite! My question is what do you do when you get into a funk with creating? With having your kit club how do you consistently stay refreshed and keep moving forward? Thanks!

  25. I adore your work and this project with the turial is so great !! I just wanted to ask you one curious question : Do you take note of all your ideas ? I mean maybe do you use a moleskine to write down all ideas when you wake up at night or when you are out of your home and discover something that inspires you in the everyday life ?! with some patterns handrawn to remind the idea that light your mind ??!! ^-^ thanks for sharing ! Smooches

  26. doverdi says

    What a fun tutorial! It definately looks fun & easy. I’m a huge squeeze punch fan & have just recently ordered the Fiskars Butterfly & can’t wait to get it.

    How do you get started on a layout? Do you chose the papers first or the photo? What is your favorite scrapping tool? Do you create mini books for yourself or give them as gifts. Do you make altered items?

    Thanks for sharing your creativity & talent with us.

    What a lovely tutorial =) I would love to make these but I need to ask what the size of the journal tags are? I think I’ve gotten the envelope down pat just need to work on the tags. I don’t own re-cut journal tags so I need to make them, Thanks =)

  28. Carmen says

    Great idea! I shared it on my FB page. TFS! ๐Ÿ™‚
