Noel Mignon Core Curriculum Pages

I have a couple more pages to share with you today using the Noel Mignon Core Curriculum kit. :)

List Maker
- I'm a list maker . . . and I've recently discovered that my daughter is too! For the first day of school, my daughter had written out a darling list of things she didn't want to forget and things she needed to do to get ready. I found it sitting in her room after she had left for the day and swiped it to include on this page. Hehehehe! :)

On a recent trip to the dollar store, I was drawn to the wall full of kitchen towels. I decided to grab a few to play with on my pages. Here I used a section of one as a layer on my page, stitching it to hold it in place.

I ran another one through my die cut machine to create these cute layered flowers. I can't wait to make more! :)

Stream - My son and his buddies love to explore the stream next to our home. They love to dig for worms, catch bugs, build bridges and collect rocks. I just love how "down and dirty" they look in these pictures! LOL!

I didn't have the right letters left over on my sticker sheet to spell my title, so I dug through my stash and found some orphaned chipboard letters to fill in the empty spaces. :)

I again used a dollar store kitchen towel to create the star accents on this page. I also used the edge of one as a layer along the bottom of my photo grouping.

Thanks for coming by!


  1. Great use of the towel like that! I'm going to have to keep my eyes open at the dollar store! Love the pages!!

  2. I love that you used dish towels. That's soooo something I would do. And it looks so fab too!

  3. Saw these at Noel Mignon, but I had to come check them out here as well. Can't get enough of those kitchen towels!!!

  4. I will NEVER look at towels the same way again! I adore both your layouts. You just have that "make it look sooooo easy" style!

  5. what a great idea to use dish towels - soooo creative :D

    i am a total list maker too - can't live without em :D

  6. Oh Jana I can so relate. Both my DD and I are huge list makers and I have "pocketed" numerous lists I've found written by her and have scrapped a few. The latest one I found on her bathroom tap....listing what she needed to get ready for the Netball final that sweet:)

  7. That list is so darling!!!!! I just love your inspiration!!!

  8. A list is a good, good thing! Plus it gets it all out of your head. I *love* the yellow dishtowel!! I think I had one like it in my cart a few weeks back and ended up putting it back because I could figure out what to do with it... humph.... LOL!

  9. I am loving your LO's they are truly inspiring and the ideas are bouncing around in my head right now. What a treasure you found in that list. x

  10. Beautiful pages. How fun to use the kitchen towels. I love how they turned out, especially the flowers.
