Playtime ~ a layout for National Scrapbook Day

Hello!

 

It’s National Scrapbook Day! I need to make my annual page to commemorate the holiday of the hobby that has brought me so much joy. I started scrapbooking memorabilia of my favorite singer, Celine Dion, in 2004. Then I moved on to vacations I took, then I met Mike and scrapbooked our adventures, along with pictures of my older sister’s little girls. While I have tons of my own pictures to scrapbook, my subjects these days are my younger sister’s children.

 

This is the first page of my youngest nephew who will be 9 months old in a few weeks. Yes, I am way behind. My last page was August 2017, just a few weeks before he was born and it was about his older sister.

 

For this page, I went back to my roots (sorta – since there weren’t collection packs back then) but I didn’t use any challenge or sketch. I just sat down with the Bella Blvd Tiny Tots collection and went to work making a page. Sometimes it’s good to remind myself that I don’t need a sketch or challenge/incentive/prize to do what I love.

 

 

Have a great night!

August 30 in 30 #1 – Lil Firecracker

Hello and Happy August!

 

A small group of friends is aiming for 30 projects in 30 days, not daily just at least 30 projects created by month’s end. I decided to join in since July was a bit of a letdown craft wise.

 

My first project is a layout using the new sketch from Creative Scrappers and a picture of my youngest niece. I have had a small pile of pictures sitting on my desk from last summer that I am hoping to get through this month, in addition to making cards.

 

I used one picture instead of the two shown on the sketch, most of my pile is single photos to scrapbook. I challenged myself to use some Doodlebug paper that has also been sitting around since last summer. I only had a border sticker sheet to go with them, so I pulled out a few old Creative Memories punches and some Doodlebug sprinkles to embellish my page.

 

 

I really need to work on both my niece’s and nephew’s scrapbooks since their little brother will be arriving later this month! I still haven’t scrapped their birth pictures. I tend to gravitate more towards the everyday pictures instead of the milestones. I need to change that soon!

 

Here is the sketch~

Have a great night!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!!

A holiday near and dear to my heart for so many reasons. I began scrapbooking 13 years ago this month and while I don’t do it as often, it’s something I hope to always keep a part of me. I need to learn to make more time to do it!

 

This is my first page since last summer, for a challenge at A Cherry on Top. They have an NSD celebration going on with lots of interesting challenges.

 

 

All the items included were part of a recipe I had to follow. It made for an interesting page. I do like how it turned out although I felt quite rusty making it!

 

Have a great night!

 

Preschool Elmo card

Happy Tuesday!

 

I finally had time to blog so I pre-scheduled yesterday morning’s and today’s posts.  My nephew started preschool at the end of August. I can’t believe he is old enough for school! Seems like yesterday he was a tiny 3 lb baby in the NICU.

 

He loves Elmo and went to Sesame Place this summer, so I made him an Elmo card to commemorate this milestone. I bought several Sesame Street cartridges on sale awhile back and the Seasons one had several school images. Lucky me!

I used some of my beloved Basic Grey stash on the card. These papers are from the Oxford 6×6 pad. I added a few SU enamel shapes as embellishment.

 

My nephew loved his card. I stopped to see him on his first day. I’m lucky that he lives close by and I can pop over there easily.
