Lucky

I like using up my stash, but every now and then I like to play with everything new. Such is the case with this layout.

Once again I used a sketch I found on Pinterest. Choosing a color scheme was easy once I found this triangle patterned paper. Many of the items are from a coordinating product line, but I added a few other embellishments as well.

When I get in a scrapbooking funk, two things usually help: new photos or new sketches. In this case, I’ve had the photo strip for a while, but the sketch is one I’ve never used until now.

X-Women

After being on Pinterest for about a year, I’m finally putting it to use. That’s how I found the sketch that I used for this page. Though the sketch shows only two photos, I thought the design was perfect for a photo strip. And you know how many of those I have . . .

Fun fact: At first the photo strip got lost on the banners, so I drew a frame around it with a pink marker. This helped ground the image.

Flair is one of my favorite things to scrapbook with these days. Plus photos like this one.

I used a sketch by Shimelle for this page. The design and embellishments are pretty straightforward and uncomplicated, but I’m still pleased by how this turned out. I especially like the gray text patterned paper, which adds a much-needed darker touch to the page.

Fun fact: I’ve used this sketch before with a previous layout.

This Is Us

I’ve been using Page Maps sketches as the basis for several of my pages lately; I used one for this layout.

This Is Us

The stashometer rating on this one is 68%. Hurray for using lots of cardstock from the stash!

Fun Fact: The viewmaster patterned paper is one that I saw and loved. I have at least half a dozen (and maybe more) sheets left. Here’s another layout where I used this paper.

50 Years of Who

I don’t think it’s a secret that I have lots of photo strips waiting to be scrapbooked. Every now and then I make a dent in the pile . . . until I come home with more. Here’s one photo strip that’s ready to go in an album.

50 Years of Who

I liked this page all right but then decided it needed a bit more embellishment. My latest accents of choice: flair. So here’s the new page with a few minor additions that still make an impact.

50 Who

I used a sketch from Page Maps. The wood pattern on the photo strip itself gave me the inspiration for the main patterned paper. The browns on this page aren’t all the same shade, but I think they are a pleasing combination.

Hello, 2015

I decided to kick off the new year with a title page for my 2015 album. I haven’t done a title page in a while–AKA a very long while–so it was nice to get one done.

Hello 2005

The stashometer rating is 35%. I know I’ve had the green woodgrain background for more than six or seven years. I love using up stuff I’ve had that long.

Also, this page inspired me to think about doing other title pages. I don’t have one for my 2014 album, for instance, so I’m gonna do one soon.

Fun fact: I love the polaroid paper so much that I bought several sheets of it. I’m gonna need to use it often.

Date with My Baby

More from my latest scrapbooking marathon. I am slowly working my way through my stack of photo strips. Here’s one I did for a page about my niece.

Date with My Baby

I used a sketch from Page Maps for the design. The background paper was a perfect match for the photo strip, and I liked how black accents made the page pop.

Besties

This page was not part of my recent scrapping marathon, but here it is anyway.

I know I used a sketch, but I can’t find which one. Notable for this page is that I used a Lucky 8 punch to create the envelope. I had punched it for another project but ultimately set the paper aside. When I decided to use it for this project, I cut a 4-inch-wide strip and folded it twice to create an envelope. I like the scalloped edge. I also used some spray ink to give the background a color boost.

My Fif

I had a batch of photos printed, then received an order of scrapbooking supplies. Therefore, it’s time for a scrapbooking mini marathon! It felt really good to get back to crafting. Here’s one page I created.

My Fif

I originally tried the green paper as the main background, but once I tried the brown pattern, I knew it was the right one. Next it was just a matter of selecting the right embellishments. I was quite pleased by how this page came together. The funny part is that the only supplies I used from my new scrapbooking order were the title stickers. Yay for using what I already have!

Let’s Go to the Movies

Photo strips are a big thing these days, and I’ve got a bunch. I haven’t found a lot of scrapbooking sketches for them, though, so I start with other sketches instead.

Let's Go to the Movies

For this page, I used a sketch from Page Maps, and I think it works quite well with this photo strip. I loved putting together all the little embellishments. One more page done!
