A month of scrapbooking – day 29

The second last day of my 30 day challenge to scrapbook every day (and either finish off a page or complete a new one).  I am so happy with what I have achieved and I have absolutely loved doing it.  I am so inspired to keep going now…more about that soon!

Today’s page was already something like this….

I did like it as it was, it was plain but that was ok.  It was missing a date and I though the red was a bit off.

Here is how I changed it (the photo is clearly different, I did update both layouts), the red colour was changed to Cherry Cobbler.  I added a date to the journalling and I added some extra accents and took the bracket off.

See you tomorrow for the last day of this challenge!

A month of scrapbooking – day 28

Welcome to day 28 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* 

Yesterday I spoke about trying to avoid recreating pages that were already completed simply because I really didn’t like them.  Today I have found myself doing it again!

This is how the page was in one of the albums….

It was ok but was missing the date and just looked incomplete.

This is how I have changed it (this is in another child’s album but the changes are the same).  I added another colour cardstock, a diecut title and a date on which the photo was taken.    I also moved the photo in slightly to overlap the other circles more.

Hope you like it! See you tomorrow!

A month of scrapbooking – day 27

Welcome to day 27 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* 

As I have been spending so much time looking through my albums I have found certain pages that I really dislike.  I have tried really hard to just concentrate on getting up to date with the album rather than recreating completed pages but I couldn’t resist refreshing this layout….

This is how they were….

They still needed dates and journalling but I knew they were all wrong.  The white background clashed with the vanilla in the decorative paper.  The number stood out too much.  The white flower wasn’t right.

I pulled the pages apart, I did tear a little of the decorative paper on one of them but I still had some scrap so that could be easily fixed.  I replaced the white with Very Vanilla.  I sponged the edges and added journalling and dates.  I redid the number in a smaller font.  I added some ribbon and twine.

So the essence of the page remains the same, but I’m much happier with it now.  I hope you agree!

See you tomorrow!

 

 

 

A month of scrapbooking – day 25

Hello there!

It is a lovely rainy night here tonight!  This afternoon I got caught up on the matching pages to  other ones I finished in the last few days.  All of these pages got completed today!

Tomorrow I hope to make some pages based on some ideas on Pinterest (let’s hope it rains all day and I get a great excuse to skip the garden projects!

See you tomorrow!

A month of scrapbooking – day 24

Hello again, another day and yet again no decent chunk of time to paper craft.  With that in mind I simply added the year to this layout (this photo is one of my absolute favourites of Lily.)

This is such a simple page of Lily and yet is one I love due to the little facts I’ve added about her that that age. Reading through them takes me right back to her at that age.

See you tomorrow!

A month of scrapbooking – day 23

Welcome to day 23 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’m finding that today it is once again late and I’m reaching for a layout that only needs a quick  finishing touch.  I was happy to still have some of this Designer Series Paper so that I could use the stamps from “Date It” to add the date to this page.

This little person is the hardest one in our family to photograph.  She will always be the one looking away or not smiling at the right time. Therefore you feel like quite a hero when you get a good photo 🙂

I’m really going to try to do a bit more solid scrapbooking over the weekend.  Let’s see how I go!
