Happy April! New sketches are up at PageMaps.com and they are AMAZING!!! (as always! *wink*)
Here is the page I created!
These photos are from several years ago when the kids and I visited the Museum of Ancient Life. My kids had a blast posing with the giant shark head protruding out from one of the displays and I crack up every time I see their facial expressions in these pictures.
I pulled out some items from my stash for this page. I used mostly the 2014 collection by Carta Bella Paper called Ahoy There and also utilized a variety of other scraps from other manufacturers for the photo mat.
This shark was created with the “Shark” cut file by Echo Park Paper (#248695 in the Silhouette Design Store).
I created the title with the letter stickers from the Ahoy There collection and a font called Kaushan Script.
This page was so much fun to make! I LOVE Becky Fleck’s sketches!

I tend to get snap-happy with my camera on holidays and always have many photos I love and want to include in our scrapbooks. Two-page layouts to the rescue! This Easter layout today is created with the darling Simple Stories Bunnies & Baskets Simple Set
. Check it out below!
I placed my photos in two rows, but wanted to call more attention to the group shot of my kids. I matted this photo with yellow cardstock, and then placed it on a block of The Hunt Is On paper
, with it’s cute Easter egg pattern. In the corner I added a cluster of stickers
accented with a button.
I fussy-cut the large characters and icons from the 3×4 & 4×6 Elements Paper
to use for my layout. They are the perfect scale for a double-page spread! I also used the journal card to house my journaling on the left page.
I wanted my title to really stand out and decided to create a little scene with the bunny and basket
next to the “Hoppy Easter” sticker
. I die cut a sunburst on my electronic die cutting machine to place behind the bunny, anchoring all of the elements together in one cluster.
Before adding the sunburst to the page, I used my sewing machine to zig-zag stitch along each ray, creating lots of texture! Manually die cut clouds and enamel star stickers from my stash round everything out.
