Move In Day

Loving this recent layout from a Scrapbook With Me event. It was fun to be able to scrapbook an event so soon after it happened.  This layout used up the rest of the July/August Mix-In paper I had remaining in my stash.


The inspiration for this layout came from this sketch from Page Maps. You can see this sketch along with others here.




I used the Simple Serif Thin Cuts set for the title and embellished with some wood embellishments from my stash.

March 2017 Recap Layout

This layout is another in my Monthly Recap series of layouts done during a recent Scrapbook with Me event. I had fun doing this layout pulling some retired Avonlea paper from my stash. I combined the paper with some paper flowers and buttons and love how this came out!



This layout was inspired by this sketch from Even More Scrapping. You can see this sketch along with others here.




I changed the pictures on the right-hand page to be portrait instead of landscape and used the paper flowers instead of stars. The Avonlea paper worked so perfect for these pictures from March. I used the Simple Serif Uppercasse Thin Cuts to die cut the title.

February 2017 Recap Layout

I had so much fun creating this Monthly Recap layout during a recent Scrapbook with Me event. I pulled out some of this Heart Happy collection from Close To My Heart. The papers from this collection were perfect for a February layout with the subtle colors and fun geometric patterns.

This layout was inspired by this sketch from Page Maps. You can see this sketch along with others here.

The title was die cut using the Simple Serif Thin Cuts Uppercase set. I added some Flip Flaps on the right-hand page to add some additional photos to the layout.

Meghan's 19th Birthday Layout

 We have a family tradition of going out to dinner for a birthday and the birthday person gets to pick the restaurant we go to. Both of my girls usually pick a local sushi place to go to. They have both been enjoying the food there for a long time.



This layout was inspired by this sketch from Stick It Down. You can see this sketch along with others here.




I had fun working with this collection from Photoplay that I had in my stash. I loved the combination of teals, pinks, yellows and blues combined with the non-traditional Asian images.
