Helloooo! Happy Easter to you! It’s been a while since I’ve created something that I can share publicly here on my blog, but I’m happy to say that I have an Easter layout to share with you today using the adorable Simple Stories Hip Hop Hooray collection!
Scrapbooking has been my way of coping with this crazy, coronavirus time warp of a Twilight Zone we are all living in right now and I’m so grateful for how therapeutic it feels. I will try and find time to share everything I have been making, but I will definitely share my favorites. 🙂
These are some individual shots I took of my kids on Easter Sunday four years ago. It’s crazy how much my kids have changed since then! Wow!
I opted to place each photo in white cardstock frames that I cut using my Silhouette die cutting machine. I placed an additional layer of patterned paper and small strips of washi tape behind some of the photos, and wrapped others with twine.
I placed the photos in a grid on the page, and filled the two ’empty’ frames with elements from the collection. I also stitched around these frames to add texture and popped them up with foam tape for depth.
This one features a pair of cute buzzing bees accenting the rainboot 3×4 Element Card, a tab sticker (Combo Sticker Sheet), and the ‘Spring Fever’ banner along the bottom.
I used the ’empty’ frame in the bottom row as a spot for a springtime scene and my title. I love how the yellow Decorative Brad adds a bit of detail to the sun die cut (Bits & Pieces)!
My family, like yours, won’t be dressing up for church this Easter Sunday, but we will still think about the beautiful reason for this holiday, our brother and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love Him! I’m always grateful for Him and his loving sacrifice for each and every one of us.
Wishing you and yours peace and sunshine this Easter!
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!
