May 2022 Recap Layout

Sharing here my most recent Scrapbook with me layout. I created this layout during today's event to recap the month of May 2022 and follow along with my monthly recap series. The layout features papers from the May/June Mix In paper pack. Love working with these paper packs in combination with the other collections from the current catalog or as a stand alone paper pack.



The inspiration for the layout comes from this sketch. You can see this sketch along with others here. I converted this 12" x 12" sketch into an 8 1/2" x 11" sketch to fit into my 2022 Album and also changed it to be a 2-page layout from a 1-page sketch.



The title was cut on my Cricut using the May Digital Art file from Close To My Heart. The circle elements were cut using various size circle and scallop punches I have in my stash. I used 3-D Foam tape under some of the punched pieces for added dimension. I also added some machine stitching along the top as well as some Clear Sparkles to embellish the layout.

Never Too Old Layout

I had fun creating this layout during a recent Scrapbook with me event. I have found that since I have switched to 8 1/2" x 11" format for my 2022 Family Album I am creating more single photo layouts and documenting these fun events that they are from.


The inspiration for this layout came from this sketch from Sketch Savvy that I found on Pinterest. You can see this sketch along with others here. This was another 12" x 12" to 8 1/2" x 11" sketch conversion.




I dug into my stash and used up some retired Blossom paper for this layout. I loved working with the geometric patterns from this collection for this. The title was die cut using the Block Alphabet Thin Cuts set with some letter stickers from my stash added in. I created the faux-stitching using a black .01 pen and then also traced a circle template twice with an offset using the black .01 pen. I added a few stickers from the Blossom collection along with some phrase pieces from a Zip Strip to embellish the layout.

Tutti Frutti

Well, we are now in June and I for one cannot believe we are 6 months into 2022. With the start of June I want to share some information on the second collection from the May/June catalog - Tutti Frutti. This is such a perfect collection for this time of year with the soft colors and fun summer-themed patterns. I love the combination of Capri. Grape, Lemonade and Flamingo in this collection.




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, Mini 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 am planning on spending some fun time this coming weekend in my scrap room crafting with this collection and will share the results with you!

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