Our Adventure on the Road

Another year and another cross country drive.  I love that I was able to fit 11 pictures on this layout.  But with so many pictures I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum so the page wouldn’t feel too busy.

Today you are 6

So, since my daughter turns 7 in a few months, it is a good thing that I have finally scrapped her last birthday.

I have been trying to use more of all of my 6x6 pads that I have been collecting more than using.  So, on this layout, not counting the title I used 3 full 6x6 sheets.

Beautifully Sweet (Jenni Bowlin Studios)

Today there is a brand new paper kit available from Jenni Bowlin Studios over at Snap Click Supply Co. This paper collection is called Bright Travel and is made up of pink and teal papers.

As soon as I saw these papers I knew that I really wanted to use them!  I teamed them up with some embellishments from various other kits to create this layout about my daughter.

I Heart Fall (Jenni Bowlin Studios)

I know, I know…it is spring, but I am scrapping these pictures from last fall.  Today there is a fabulous new digital product release from Jenni Bowlin Studios called Stenciled Banners and Bubbles.  I hope you will check out the NEW digital home for JBS called Snap Click Supply Co.
For this layout I used several digital kits but I have to say I loved how it all came together!

I used the new kit two different ways.  In PSE I created a slightly transparent version that of the “Today” banner and had it outlined as well and placed it on my patterned paper before printing it out.  The second way was to cut three different banners out of frosted glass vinyl.  I wanted something that would be light and not totally solid in color.

Fun Happy Today

I don’t know about you, but my collection of 6x6 pads of paper has been steadily growing.  I have all these goals of using them, and then I just don’t.  So for this layout I love that I was able to create my background by combining 4 sheets of 6x6 paper.  I then added some fun embellishments and a cool title cut on my Silhouette (using two more sheets of 6x6 paper).  Now I just need to create a ton more pages like this to create a dent in my paper stash.

It’s Your Day

These pictures have been sitting here waiting for me to scrap them for a while now, but I haven’t been inspired to use them.  Finally I got an idea and went with it.  I have to say I really enjoyed putting this page together.
