Epic Jenga Battle

I took so many photos this past summer that I see a lot more of these two page layouts in my future.  I took a lot of photos of us playing with this yard size jenga set that my husband and nephew made that I had a hard time even narrowing it down to just these six photos.  I love creating a block style design when I create a two page layout because it makes it really easy to tie the two pages together.

Explore the Beach with You

It is hard to believe from these pictures, but these pictures were taken on a July morning at the beach.  I loved the variety of tones in the greys and blues in the photos and decided to stick with that theme for the papers too.  I decided to use a sketch from Scrapbook Generation for this page.  I love how I was able to fit 7 4x6 photos on this single double page layout.

Enjoy layout

I started with two 12x12 sheets of patterned paper and a 6x6 paper pad to create this page.  I love the smaller print scale in the 6x6 paper pad because of how well the scale works when using my silhouette.  There are 9 different pieces of patterned paper on this page (not counting the rectangles from a cut apart sheet below the photo) and they all work so well together because of the scale.  

Do you ever have a page that makes you so happy when you create it?  I had a great time playing with these fun papers and embellishments.  The colors make me happy, the cute embellishments make me happy...even the finished page brings a smile to my face.

Beauty of Snoqualmie Falls layout

Scraps...Do you have as many waiting to be used as I do?  Lately I haven't been looking through my scraps as much and that means that my scrap drawers are quickly starting to fill up.  I really need to start making more of an effort to look in my scrap drawers first.  For this layout that is exactly what I did.  I keep my scraps organized by company and pulled out these four pieces from various Bella Blvd lines to create the background for this page.

Yay Fun Girl

Hip Hip Hooray for some fun assignment free scrapbooking time.  I really love playing with some bright and fun colors when the weather here is all grey and rainy.  My collection of 6x6 pads has been increasing lately, which is because it always seems like such a good way to get the whole collection. Besides the background paper I only used a 6x6 pad for all my patterned paper on this page.  

The other thing I have been loving on my pages lately is angles.  It just seems to add more movement to my page.

Autumn (TSR)

The ScrapRoom releases a variety of new kits each month.  It is always fun to see how the variety of kits can be combined to provide more supply options!  You can check out their blog for more inspiration from their design team.  If you love challenges come and join the Facebook Group for a new set of challenges that are revealed the first week of each month, also join us for chatter and tons of scrappy inspiration.  

Fall is in the air over at The ScrapRoom.  The Carta Bella page kit has really traditional fall colors and patterns.  When I saw the kit I loved the tags that came with it and decided that I wanted to layer those on my page.  Of course, I am a sucker for the cut-apart sheet too.   I thought the leaf patterned paper was really cute, but with my photos and tags it felt a little busy, so instead I fussy cut some of the leaves to just add to my page as an embellishment.  To finish off the page I added this twine from my stash.

Reach to the Sky (Scrap Our Stash)

October is already half over and fall is in full swing.  That means it is time for a new sketch + challenge over at Scrap Our Stash.  A sketch is a great starting point when you aren't sure where to start.  After looking at the sketch I always then turn to the list items to inspire me on my page.  Some items require a little more thinking and planning on my part, but that is what always gets my mojo flowing.  I hope you will head over to the blog to see what the design team has created.  Make sure to play along for your chance to win the monthly prize!


For this month’s sketch + challenge I stuck really close to the sketch.  I loved the variety of papers this sketch uses.  I grabbed three photos from a one of our summer trips and started pulling out some patterned paper to get started.  For the list I used: Doodlebug (enamel dots), Diecut (the ampersand), Envelope, Flowers.  I hope you will play along with us this month!  I can’t wait to see what you create with this challenge!

Farm Fresh (The ScrapRoom)

The ScrapRoom releases a variety of new kits each month.  It is always fun to see how the variety of kits can be combined to provide more supply options!  You can check out their blog for more inspiration from their design team.  If you love challenges come and join the Facebook Group for a new set of challenges that are revealed the first week of each month, also join us for chatter and tons of scrappy inspiration.  

I decided to create this page using the jump start sketch challenge.  I found this sketch super easy to work with.  Instead of the large circle I decided to add this fun die cut behind my photos.  I also changed up the 4x6 photo and decided to use 2 3x4 photos.  Once the sketch was rotated I would have needed a horizontal 6x4 photo, and all the photos I took of these cool pumpkins were verticals…so problem solved!  I paired the Bella Blvd 12x12 patterned papers from the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit with the Bella Blvd goodies in the Shots of Life Kit to create this page.  It really makes scrapping easy when the supplies are all from the same line.  This allows me to get more bang for my buck.  I love how the 6x8 papers are the same pattern but on a smaller scale, this makes them perfect for the text circles and the title card.  I finished the page off with stickers from the sticker sheet and some homemade enamel dots.

The Patterned Paper Add-On Kit also has papers from I Love Family by Echo Park to it made creating a page using the Add-On Kit and Shots of Life Kit super easy.  I really loved the hexagon paper and decided to do a strip of that across my page.  After all my papers were layered and I added my photos I then added embellishments included in the Shots of Life Kit and even cut some of them from extra pocket page cards.  I finished off the page with some star sequins from my stash.

October Pocket Pages for The ScrapRoom

The ScrapRoom releases a variety of new kits each month.  It is always fun to see how the variety of kits can be combined to provide more supply options!  You can check out their blog for more inspiration from their design team.  If you love challenges come and join the Facebook Group for a new set of challenges that are revealed the first week of each month, also join us for chatter and tons of scrappy inspiration.  

I love scrapping family photos.  This past summer we did several short day trips and I am really excited to get this documented.  I might have went  a little overboard taking photos, because I was having a blast playing with my new lens for my big DSLR camera.  I immediately loved the colors in the I Love Family line from Echo Park.  I first cut apart the sheets of cards and then went busy figuring out which pictures to use.  In the end I created this two page spread using two different styles of pocket pages.  The Echo Park cards are so well designed that they can just be put into the pockets and the layout feels complete.  Simple can still look beautiful and finished!

 I have never been good at remembering to stage a cute photo op of my daughter in her costume before Halloween.  So that means I usually end up with pictures that I don’t love, which makes Halloween one of my least favorite holidays to scrap.  This line from Bella Blvd that was in the Shots of Life Kit was so cute!  So I decided to dig through my digital photos to create a pocket page of my daughter going all the way back to her first costume.  The Shots of Life Kit doesn’t come with actual pocket page cards, but you get part of the 6x8 paper pad and I was able to easily create these cards in just a couple minutes by cutting the paper and adding some stickers from the sticker sheet.  In the end, I decided to just go with cute cards and leave off any space for journaling, but there are some papers that would be easy to write on.

Love You (TSR)

You asked and now you shall receive.  The Flavors of the Month Kit from The ScrapRoom come with recipes created by the design team showcasing each of the flavors as a two page layout complete with instructions on how to recreate the page yourself.  Now the Doubleshot Kit will ALSO come with these recipes.

These papers by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts are just right up my alley. I mean, I scrapbook my daughter a lot and pink is still totally her favorite color.  These papers just screamed fun to me, so I knew I wanted to use them with some of my favorite pictures of just her at the beach this past summer.  I still have a ton of pictures that I love, but these are all about what she loved at the beach!  The embellishments that came with this page kit in the Doubleshot kit are just so cute!  I loved the diecuts, washi tape and those adorable rubber embellishments!  I finished off the page with some homemade enamel dots and called this page done!

Best Friends Layout

I am sure this comes as no surprise, but I love taking photos.  Since I am the one usually taking photos it means that I am rarely in the photos.  On top of that my mom really does not like getting her photo taken so I have very few photos with her.  The fact that both of us are together in these photos make them truly special to me.  The reason I am saying this is because it is important to be in your photos and it is important to have these times with loved ones documented because memories fade.

These photos are from this summer and I love that they show my mom so happy.  What I remember most about this particular slice of time was my mom joking and laughing.  It is this moment that I will always treasure.  I couldn't wait to dig into some fun girly papers and embellishments to create this page about my mom and me.

Dreamy (SOS)

October is here and fall is in the air.  The chill in the air especially if it is cloudy or rainy always makes me want to hunker down in my scrap room and create.  When it is dreary outside I love to use bright colors because they always cheer me up!

It is time for a new book cover challenge!  I loved the masculine feel to the book cover and I drew my inspiration from the hat and the rectangle window.  I knew I had this silly picture of my husband in this pink floppy hat and decided to use it on my page.  I wanted to keep my main design vertically down the center of the page, just like the book.  I also added rectangles to mimic the feel of the window on the book cover.  As a final touch I added twine to the hearts and title.
