A month of scrapbooking – day 14

Two weeks into my challenge to scrapbook everyday and I’m loving it more than ever.

This page isn’t really complete as I can’t find the originals of the photos I want to include (I haven’t really tried all that hard). Today was all about getting the kids back to school and sorting out a long list of tasks.  I will be sure to get back to complete this page soon however I thought this was a great start for now.

This page is a mismatch of retired and new products.  I love the woodgrain designer series paper that I’ve used in the background.  The other paper is a retired Stampin’ Up! design along with some others I’ve had in my stash for a really long time.  The black twine is current Stampin’ Up! product as is some of the washi tape.

When the design is complete it will feature 3 small black and white photos of my son when he was about 6 months old.

See you tomorrow for the half way mark!

A month of scrapbooking – day 13

Today I’m sharing a page that is more about the photos than the layout.  I also made some mistakes recreating the layout and had to add some extra photos to one of the pages to even out the design.

Most of the pages have 8 photos (which is a lot for a 8×8 page) but it was important to me to add them all to tell the story.  Depending on the album the photo layout changes slightly to be sure that each child has a larger feature photo in their own album (bottom right).

It is amazing what you think you will remember forever but you don’t.  In going back to these albums several years later I have forgotten dates and details that I have had to research elsewhere.  This has been a great reminder to me on how important it is to add as much detail to the pages now.

So as you can see the pages are really just a collage of photos.  I have the journalling printed out on vellum and laid over some Cherry Cobbler card stock.  I added a mosaic of designer series paper that has been cut with a retired postage stamp punch.

See you tomorrow!

Beachy Little Christmas

I really love the fact that we have a Christmas stamp set perfectly suited to our Australian December climate!

This card was featured at my recent class.  I added the gold foil, stamped the gold embossed sentiment and then the white embossed tree.  Once they were heat set I added the extra shell images in Crumb Cake.

Any questions please let me know.  Supplies are listed below!

A month of scrapbooking – day 12

Welcome to day 12 of my scrapbooking challenge…“to complete an unfinished layout or create a new one from scratch every day for the next 30 days”.  Check out this first post here to get some more information on my children’s scrapbooks *day one* 

This cute page was the result of giving Zane the rest of the lolly packet when he was around 3 1/2 years of age.  I loved this DSP and still have quite a bit of it left so no doubt you’ll see it again in the albums for my daughters.

See you tomorrow!

A month of scrapbooking – day 11

Welcome to day 11 of my scrapbooking challenge…“to complete an unfinished layout or create a new one from scratch every day for the next 30 days”.  Check out this first post here to get some more information on my children’s scrapbooks *day one* 

I got the idea from Becky Higgins to a photo a month with the same item throughout your child’s first year.  It isn’t really obvious as I cropped down the photos but these are pictures of Zane with the same teddy bear for the first 12 months of his life.  I’ve used our swirly scribble framelits along with circle framelits.
