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!

Tea for 2

After going a few months without scrapbooking, I finally sat down last weekend and put a few pages together. Here’s the first one.

Tea for 2

I used a sketch by Lydell Quin. It was fun to remember last year’s trip to St. George as I scrapbooked. I also realized once I was done that I ended up using a conventional Halloween color scheme. It wasn’t planned–that’s just the way it worked out.

It made me feel good to get back to scrapbooking. I’m already planning to do more this weekend.

Coneheads

Anyone who visits here on occasion surely knows I like using scrapbook sketches. Every now and then, I find one I keep using again and again. For instance, check out this layout.

I used this sketch as the inspiration.

And it might look familiar to you because I’ve used it once or twice before. But new photos and embellishments make it fun and different each time. Yes, I love scrapbook sketches.

Me & You

It’s not every day that I get to meet a romance novel cover model. So I had to commemorate the occasion with a scrapbook page.

Me and You

Some pages come together quickly. This wasn’t one of them. :) I didn’t really start with a sketch; I need to remember it’s better when I do. I did have fun using spray ink on the doilies, but it took a while to settle on the other embellishments. I pulled some paper from my Club Scrap stash, though, so that’s always good.

Another page for the scrapbook. Yay!

A Friend of Higher Temperature

This scrapbook page is the one that broke my sewing machine. OK, I’ll admit it was already having problems, but this page sent it over the edge. Whoops.

Higher Temperature

It took me a while to decide how to embellish this page. I finally went with spray ink (though the color didn’t turn out quite as I envisioned) and wood arrows. I’m calling it good. :)

Today

I made this page about going out to lunch with some coworkers. As I often do, I turned to the photo for color inspiration. I originally tried blues and purples but couldn’t make anything that came together. Once I chose this background paper, though, the rest was easy.

Today

I used a sketch from Shimelle. No stashometer rating on this one, but that’s OK.

Say Cheese

This week I heard the news that Two Peas in a Bucket is closing. I joined the community in 2001 and was Pea #12633. I’ve always been an on-and-off scrapbooker, and Two Peas was always there when I was in an “on” phase. I’ve been inspired by their challenges, enjoyed their classes, and loved chatting on the message boards. I’m pretty sad about the change and what it might mean about the scrapbooking community. It’s always unnerving when one of those places that seemed so strong for so long closes. Thanks for the memories, Two Peas.

I have a small pile of photo strips just waiting to be scrapbooked. I decided to use these to tell the story of how I like going to movies, even if I end up going by myself.

Say Cheese

I used a sketch by Ashley Horton and added lots of fun flair. Another page done, hurray! On to the next photo strip.
