Easter Blessings Two-Pager

Happy Easter Weekend! I love this time of year. The green returning to the earth, the birds chirping, the warmth of the sunshine … it all brings such a feeling of happiness and hope and new beginnings. I hope this weekend you are able to spend some time with your families and to reflect on the Savior’s love for all of us. I am so grateful to know that He lives and loves me. I’m grateful for the Atonement and the opportunity we have to continually better ourselves through it. I’m grateful for the burdens and sadness He was willing to lift off of my shoulders. I’m grateful for the strength He gives me. I am grateful for Him.

This weekend we will be having Easter Egg hunts and Easter dinner with family and taking lots of pictures to remember these special times. Here is a two-page layout of last year’s Easter morning using adorable cut files by SVGCuts.com. (For full instructions and sizes for this project, visit the SVG Cuts Blog HERE.)

EASTER BLESSINGS

SVG Cuts Collections Used:

The adorable bunnies and egg border on this layout are from the Spring Bunnies SVG Collection. Aren’t they just super sweet?! I just love them and couldn’t wait to use them on this page.

The “Easter” title word is actually a FREEBIE that you can find HERE on ths SVG Cuts site. After cutting it out, I trimmed away the word “blessings” and added it back in with letter stickers (the original file was too tall for the space that I wanted to use it in).

The clouds come from the adorable Ryan’s Playdate SVG Collection, and then sun is from the amazing Peony Cottage SVG Collection. Both of these kits have incredible dimensional files that I will be using at another time, but I love that I can mix and match the elements from all of them to create something new and add them to my scrapbook pages.

These papers are all from the American Crafts My Girl Paper Pad. I picked it up at the annual American Crafts Warehouse Sale in Provo, Utah, but I have also seen it an JoAnn’s Craft Store (so you can use a coupon on it, if you’d like to pick it up for yourself). I love the sweet, soft colors and patterns!

My Crazy Fun Family

The best thing about my family is that they are so much fun to hang out with! I love how silly they can be together. We just have a great time being together! A few summers ago we went on a road trip. When we arrived at our destination, the kids were so happy to be there, that they jumped out of the car and started running and jumping around. I caught this fun picture of them and decided to feature it by itself on this next page using the Noel Mignon Social Butterfly kit.

MY CRAZY FUN FAMILY

Circles are a really fun way to frame out a single photo. Here I cut out a large circle from the Crate Paper Boys Rule Race Track paper.

I also had some fun with chevrons on this page. The two sections at the top of the page were hand cut from patterned papers. I accented them with a pair of Jillibean Soup Wood Sprinkles (LOVE these things!).

Do you have a silly photo that deserves to be center-stage on a layout? Well, pull it out! Print it at a nice, big 5×7 size and have fun recording that memory!

Have a great weekend!

Bits of Color

Happy Friday! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog today with another page using the Social Butterfly Kit. The colors of this kit are ones that I naturally  gravitate towards … I just love bright happy colors! But sometimes papers with lots of color can be tough to scrapbook with because they compete with the photos. When this happens, I like to keep the background simple and add color in smaller areas around the page.

SCOUTING MEMORIES

My son’s scout leader sent would send out a newsletter each month containing photos of the activities they had completed the previous month. I love having photos from events I’m not able to be there for, and I know my son will appreciate being able to look back at some of these times later in his life. :)

For this page, I used white cardstock as my background, adding droplets of spray mist in two different colors for more interest. I also inked the edges of the cardstock with the orange ink pad included in the kit. I placed all of my photos together on a single mat. I broke up the four-square grid of photos with one of the My Mind’s Eye Flair Pins topped with a die cut and accented on either side with a cork arrow sticker.  Along the top of the photos I added a hand cut strip of the speech bubble patterned paper by Simple Stories. I used a couple of the bubbles to add details about my photos.

Along the bottom of the page, I added another hand cut bit of patterned paper paired with a length of the fabric tape. The smaller letter stickers of the title help to carry the color orange around the page.

Thanks for popping by today! I hope you have some fun things in store for the weekend. Me?! I think I will be doing a bit of Spring Cleaning both inside and outside of our home.

See you again soon!

Cookie the Dog

Camryn has always had an affinity towards stuffed animals … her collection is ever-growing. :) So naturally, when Grandpa and Grandma took her out for her birthday lunch and shopping trip she chose ANOTHER stuffed animal toy as a new friend.

COOKIE THE DOG

I used the 3 Birds Graceful Season Paper collection to scrapbook this page along with the 3D Embellishment Kit and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Set. Inside the 12 x 12 paper pad are a variety of darling papers … one of them was a large chevron print in multiple colors. I cut the blue chevron from each sheet (there are 2 of each design), and decided to overlap them in opposite directions to create a frame for my photo grouping. I really like how it turned out!

the smaller photos is framed with a stamp frame from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil set with a 3D floral sticker accenting the corner. I also added a couple more pennant shapes stickers below and placed my title across the top.

On the left side of the page, I handcut the large floral element from another sheet of the 12 x 12 patterned papers. I layered a photo on top and then layered together more of the 3D Embellishment stickers and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil stickers to create the circular accent.

These sweet papers have stolen my heart. If you’d like to see more projects using this collection, be sure to stop by the 3 Birds Blog!

Until tomorrow!
