Last weekend I got together with a couple of my scrapbooking sistas and did some pages!
I’m please with most of them and wanted to share a couple of my favourites with you!
For this layout, I was inspired by a challenge going on over at The Studio Challenges. The challenge is to use at least 2 fonts in your title and to journal. I journaled about a birthday tradition we have for our son.
The letters in the title are from some really old Bella Blvd. collections. So glad I didn’t get rid of them! LOL!!!
For my next layout, I used Kaisercraft’s “Let’s Go” collection.
The colours worked perfectly with the photo!
All of my supplies were purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. They’re an on-line shop located in a little town in Ontario. The service is wonderful and the delivery is super speedy. If you haven’t checked them out yet, head on over when you get a minute!
Whenever I’m going to be journaling on my layout, I write out what I want to say in pencil first and then erase it when I’m done. This helps me to not make errors on the page and then have to come up with a creative way to hide them! LOL!So head on over to The Studio Challenges and see what the rest of the design team came up with.
And if you play along, please remember to share your layout with us! We love to see your work!
For today’s challenge over at The Studio Challenges we are asking you to use stars and stripes on your layout.
And since I’ve been using these challenges to catch up on my scrapbooking, my stars and stripes are all about Christmas! LOL!
I mostly used the My Minds Eye “Winterberry” collection on this layout with a mix of letters from October Afternoon and Simple Stories. Some of the stickers and 1 piece of paper are from the older Simple Stories “Sub Zero” collection.
The stripes are in the plaid pattern and in behind the pictures and I have 1 star dotting my letter “i” in the word “Glimpses”. This is a far stretch, I know, but that’s a nice thing about challenges, you can use them as a jumping off point! 😀
Here’s my interpretation of it. I chose to turn the sketch counter-clockwise.
I used papers from Kaisercraft’s “Blessed” collection, ephemera bits from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection and a piece of paper from her “Field Notes” collection. I chose to do a black and white background so my picture popped!
The title word is from Jillibean Soup’s “Harvest Garden” collection.
I finished off the layout with some yellow enamel dots, a few yellow flower stickers with little crystal centres and a piece of black and white flair.
So head on over to The Studio Challenges to see the sketch and check out the gorgeous layouts from the rest of the design team.
