Throwback Thursday - September 2021 Recap Layout

It's Throwback Thursday today with this latest in my Monthly Recap Layouts for September of 2021. I dug into my stash to pull out some Into the Wild paper for this layout. This collection was one of my favorite collections from 2019.


The inspiration for this layout comes from this sketch from EvenMoreScrapping. You can see this sketch along with others here.


The title was die cut using the Simple Serif Uppercase Alphabet Thin Cuts set. I added a banner underneath the title to give it some pop. I also substituted circles for the squares and used 3-D Foam tape with these for some additional dimension.

Sawyer OSW Card Workshop

 The Sawyer Collection from the latest Close To My Heart catalog is the featured collection for February and I have already been having fun crafting with this. I knew when I saw the collection with its floral patterns and soft tones I wanted to create a One Sheet Wonder card set to send some wishes to friends.



This workshop creates 12 cards from the 1 sheet of patterned paper plus 6 sheets of cardstock.  This is the cutting diagram for the patterned paper.


The stamped images and sentiments come from the Smiles from the Garden Stamp Set + Thin Cuts. I die cut the butterflies and then stamped them in coordinating ink colors. I used the Embroidered Circles stamp set to add some extra dimension to the die cut circles and then added some Clear Sparkles to finish off the cards.

These are the 12 card designs you will be able to create with this workshop.

Vibe Layout

As soon as I picked the sketch for the latest Scrapbook with me event I knew I wanted to scrapbook Nicole and my tradition of "Vibing". The only way to describing our vibe time together is absolute silliness and constant teasing of each other. It is one of those traditions that I knew I wanted to make sure to include in our family scrapbook. I pulled out some scraps of the November/December 2021 Mix-In paper pack for this layout.


The inspiration for this layout comes from this sketch from KimsScrapbookAddiction Blog. You can see this sketch along with others here.



I converted this sketch from 12"x12" to 8 1/2" x 11" as that is the format I am using for my 2022 album. The title was die cut using the Slimline Alphabet Thin Cuts set. I added some 3"x4" Flip Flap Memory Protectors to add some additional pictures and hidden journaling. I also added some enamel dots and glittered embellishments to finish off the layout.

December 2021 Recap Layout

 Hoping back a bit to finish up my 2021 album at a recent Scrapbook with me event. I created this layout for my December 2021 Recap using up some of the Wonderland Collection. This collection was perfect for the beginning of winter here in Massachusetts.


The inspiration for this layout came from this sketch by Dusty Attic. You can see this sketch along with others here.


To make this 1-page sketch into a 2-page layout I mirrored the left page onto the right page. I then extended the photo block across the 2 pages. The title was die cut using the Simple Serif Thin Cuts set. The tabs were die cut using the Tags & Tabs Thin Cuts set. I used a 4x6 Picture My Life Card that I cut down for the journal box and used some scraps of other Picture My Life Cards to add some additional patterns to the layout.

Sawyer


The second collection I am sharing from the January/February catalog is the Sawyer collection. I love the floral patterns and fun colors in this collection. These papers are going to be perfect for so many different crafting projects!



I love the options with this collection! There are 2 choices for the paper pack - each pack has 6 sheets, 2 each of 3 double-sided designs, you can choose the pack by itself or with a coordinating sticker sheet. In addition to the paper pack there is also a Coordinating Cardstock pack, Die Cut Shapes, Picture My Life Cards and a Digital Art Collection. If you are also into stamping this collection also offers a scrapbooking stamp set and a cardmaking stamp set.




In addition to the paper packs, stamp sets and embellishments, there are also 2 workshop kits available with this collection. Each workshop kit features exclusive elements that are only available through the kit. Exclusive patterned papers and die cuts in the scrapbooking workshop kit and an exclusive stamp set with coordinating Thin Cuts in the cardmaking kit.



I hope you are in love with this collection as much as I am! I have been busily creating with this and cannot wait to share the final results with you.


You can see and shop this collection on my website today - here!
