The Best of 2016

As we say goodbye to 2016, I can't help but to think of all of the good things that 2016 has brought.  Now believe me, there were plenty of lows as well. I made great progress towards my degree in business management. As for scrappy news, I was a part of Scrap Our Stash for the whole year, I was a part of two terms with Stuck?! Sketches, and I joined the team at The ScrapRoom.  I have been working hard to share more scrapbook layouts on my Instagram account, because it makes me happy to scroll through and see my favorite pages, and really that square format is just calling for scrapbook pages!

So without further ado, here are 10 of my favorite pages from 2016:

I created this first page for Stuck?! Sketches.  I love that I used a picture from my childhood and that I was able to use so many scraps from my stash.

This second layout I created for the birthday celebration team up with Stuck?! Sketches and Just Nick cut files.  I love the large title and how I was able to use three other pictures as well.

I created this page for a book cover challenge with Scrap Our Stash.  I loved the triangles and all the embellishments too.  This was such a fun page to create!

Wood grain, cute die cuts and my cute sleeping puppy...what could be better!

I started with the pie chart cut file and used primary a 6x6 pad.  I love my picture and all the fun embellishments from Crate Paper.

This was a page I created for Scrap Our Stash.  What I didn't know when I created it, is that my husband will be out of the military shortly.  This picture is now even more special to me, especially since I don't have very many photos of him in his dress uniform.

I branched out of my norm here and I used these fun papers and embellishments from Imaginisce.  They were never one of my favorite companies, since I have never really been into the theme and cutest stuff...but I just love some of their recent products and this page has been one of my favorites since I created it.

This is a page I create for The ScrapRoom.  I get to mix their Shots of Life kit (designed for pocket scrappers) and the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit each month.  I love how this page turned out.  I spent forever hand stitching all those circles, but in the end it was totally worth it!

This is another page I created for The ScrapRoom.  I get to mix their Shots of Life kit (designed for pocket scrappers) and the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit each month.  I decided to create a grid style layout and these cards just make me so happy!

This layout is a layout for The ScrapRoom and Stuck?! Sketches.  Shortly after I left the Stuck?! Sketches team The ScrapRoom became a sponsor and we have been invited to team up with their team to create a layout using Laura's sketch and products from The ScrapRoom.  This is my first layout from that team up and it uses Jillibean Soup products.  I loved creating this page and even now I still adore it!

This layout for is for The ScrapRoom.  I get to mix their Shots of Life kit (designed for pocket scrappers) and the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit each month. This page features a Jillibean Soup collection and I love the angled grid design I decided to use.

TSR Teams up with Stuck?! Sketches

Once again this month The ScrapRoom is a sponsor for a challenge at Stuck?! Sketches and the design team has been invited to play along. I have enjoyed playing along with Laura's fabulous sketches after stepping down from the team.

I used the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and the Shots of Life kit to create this page.  I stuck pretty close to the sketch and just used a larger photo.  The warm tones in the photo work well with all of the browns and creams in the papers that I used.  I took this picture of my daughter looking through one of the many scrapbooks that are in my living room.  I love that she likes to look through them and I really wanted to document these moments!

Kit Combine Layouts (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. 

Each month I take the Shots of Life kit and the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and create two pages to showcase how well the add-on kits look together.  Now remember the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit included 2 extra sheet that match the four Flavors of the Month for a total of 8 extra pieces of paper.  The Shots of Life kit includes various goodies that work with the pocket pages, but on traditional layouts that means that there are extra embellishments for the pages.  Below are my two pages for December.

 I always love how easy it is to combine the Shots of Life kit with the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit to create regular 12x12 pages. I combined the patterned paper in the Add-On kit from Bella Blvd’s Illustrated Faith line with the cut-apart sheet and stickers that were in the Shots of Life kit to create this page.  I finished it off with some enamel dots by Carta Bella that are also in the Shots of Life kit.

Last year we saw snowflakes exactly one time (in the photo) and it didn’t even really stick around.  I found the pink and aqua in these papers from Pinkfresh looked great with the Project Life cards and snowflakes in the Shots of Life kit.  I started this page by tucking different cards behind my photo to see what I liked and soon I found myself using just about every card because they were all so pretty.  The vellum pieces with the silver accents are so soft and pretty that I had to just keep adding them!  I finished it off with some twine (in the kit), some snowflake sequins (my stash) and I used my We R Memory Keepers little stapler to attach the vellum snowflakes.

 This month I wanted to keep my pocket pages simple! This really helps to get lots of photos saved and into my albums.  For this page I used the cut apart sheet from Bella Blvd and their Illustrated Faith line.  I added “Love each other” sticker and the number stickers that are also included in the Shots of Life kit to finish off this page.

 This is my main Christmas page from 2015 and I love how I was able to add 8 photos on one 12x12 page.  The cards and enamel dots are from the Carta Bella cut-apart sheet and the numbers (small) are from Bella Blvd.  I didn’t like the stark white of the letters so I added some red stickles to them.  I finished off the page with the black year thickers from my stash.  I really loved this cute “wish list” card and loved how I had picked out 7 photos and it had 7 lines…this is what gave me the inspiration to number each photo and give a short description of each photo.

Blooming Fun With You (SOS)

It is time for the last Sketch + Challenge of 2016. It is so hard to believe that 2017 is just around the corner. These sketch challenges are always one of my favorites because they really seem to get my mojo flowing.  I really love how this sketch has a variety of paper and four photos.  I went with four 4x4 photos.  From the lists this time I used Bow, Glitter, Tag & Gold.  I decided to angle my block of photos but I kept the rest of my layout close to the sketch.

Trees Are Beautiful (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 created this two page layout as my recipe challenge using the My Mind's Eye page kit.  Remember, subscribers to the Doubleshot kit now receive instructions to create a two page layout from each page kit.  I have always loved the look of the decorated Christmas tree with the room lights off, so I created this page with that in mind.  I grabbed some of my favorite Christmas tree pictures from recent years to create this page.  I added the title using letter stickers in my stash.

Special Treat (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 knew when I saw the sketch this month that I would have a hard time using it.  It isn’t my normal style and this page kit from Elle’s Studio (in the Doubleshot kit) has some bold patterns.  I decided pretty early on to skip that circle piece of patterned paper and swap it out for a red doily.  After I got my papers picked out, cut and put down I dug into all of the cute embellishments to finish off this page.

Jewel Thief (SOS)

Welcome to the LAST book cover challenge for 2016 over at Scrap Our Stash.  I have had a great time working with these challenges over the last year since they always seemed to get my mojo flowing.  I will admit some of them seemed to stump me at first, but it always led me to be inspired by it in some sort of fashion.

This book cover had me scratching my head on what to create.  It seemed obvious to make a Christmas page, but last year I decided I wanted to be an active participant and not just behind the camera.  The result of that is that I have almost no Christmas pictures and the ones I did take have already been scrapped.  I decided to take my inspiration from the title and more importantly the word STOLE.  So that is what inspired to create this page of my niece wearing ALL of the dress-up jewelry while visiting her grandparents.  I took a 6x6 pad and cut several pages in half so that I had 8 triangles.  I then laid them out so that the picture would be in the middle.  I used striped paper and then used sequins to create a rough circle around my photo and title.
