Simple Stories: Happy Journey

Hello, Friends! Today I have a layout to share with you using the happy and cheerful Simple Stories So Happy Together collection.

For the title of this page, I fussy-cut the globe with the quote “Life is about the Journey” from the 6×8 paper pad.

I like this quote because my daughter had never taken a dance or tumbling class in her life, yet she was determined to try out for the cheerleading team at her school. I tried to prep her for the disappointment that would inevitably come, but to everyone’s surprise her hard work paired with her incredible team spirit and sparkling personality earned her a spot on the team! It was quite the journey with a happy ending. I was so proud of her for persevering and going for her dream.

I used the “Hello Love” woodgrain paper as the background for this page and added a scalloped border piece across the top cut from the “Our Story” paper.

I added the photos to several different layers of patterned paper and then added several Journal Bits & Pieces to the top to write the story about the day she received her uniform for the first time. I also used the 4×6 Clear Stamps to add a sentiment to the upper right corner of the journal blocks.

I used the 4×6 Clear Stamps again to stamp the phrase “life is beautiful” across the bottom of the globe.

I layered together several flowers, hearts, and the word “HAPPY” from the Bits & Pieces in the lower right corner of the photos. I also fussy-cut the wreath from the 4×4 Elements paper and tucked it behind the right edge of the photos.

I love that scrapbooking gives me the opportunity to celebrate all of life’s challenges, victories, and lessons. This page about my daughter achieving her goal will always serve as a reminder to *ME* to work hard for my dreams and goals, too, even when it seems impossible. I will always learn something along the way.┬áLike the title for this page says, life is about the journey!

Simple Stories: Autumn Outing

Fall is my family’s favorite time of year to be outside! Whether it’s driving through the mountains to see the colorful leaves, a visit to the pumpkin patch, or walks around the neighborhood, we can never seem to get enough of our favorite season!

The Autumn Splendor collection by Simple Stories encapsulates everything we love about autumn with its color palette and beautiful, botanical images. It was so much fun creating this page for our family album!

I fell head over heels for the coordinating stencil for this collection and decided to add it to the background paper (3×4 Elements paper). I love the way the stenciled details look peeking out from behind the Foliage Bits & Pieces. I repeated the stenciling around the page in three areas to create a visual triangle in my design and to keep your eye moving around the page.

I framed the single photo for this page with a Layered Chipboard Frame and then added layers of additional patterned papers and Foliage Bits & Pieces leaves behind for texture. This entire grouping is popped up on foam tape.

I fussy-cut the journal block from the 3×4 Elements paper and then added it to the right of my photo at a downward angle. A pair of foliage leaves and a butterfly connect the journal block to the layered photo block and add even more to the outdoorsy feel!

I combined the chipboard “AUTUMN” word with orange letters from my stash for the title. I added distress ink to the orange letters to tie them in with the inking in the background.

This beautiful collection makes me long for sunny Autumn days and fall drives in the mountains! I can’t wait for the leaves to begin changing! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired to scrapbook some of your fall family photos, too!

Doodlebug: There’s No Place Like HOME

Only have one photo for a page? Try creating a larger-than-life title to fill the rest of your layout like I did below on this fun page using the Doodlebug Simply Spring collection.

I wanted to scrapbook this photo of my oldest and youngest daughters hanging out together at home, and thought it would be fun to use the Cozy Cottage Doodle-pop Sticker in place of one of the letters in the word “HOME.”

I die cut the large letters using an electronic die cutting machine and then placed the Cozy Cottage sticker on layered circles in place of the letter “O.” The remaining letters are accented with the May Flowers Sprinkles.

I had several scraps of patterned papers left over from a previous project. I layered them together behind my photo for more color. I placed a pair of Sunny Skies Cute Clips at the top left corner of the photo even more dimension.

The flowers in the bottom right corner of the photo were created using the Garden Flowers Craft Kit. I scored the leaves and added Glitter Sprinkles to the flower centers.

I capped the top of the page off with a sunny, scalloped border sticker from the This & That Sticker sheet

… and then added two colors of pink heart Sprinkles around the page for a lovey-dovey feel.

Close to My Heart: Last Day

Happy Friday! I’ve been working with the February Craft with Heart kit by Close to My Heart.

The thing I love most about these kits is that the designs are versatile enough to work with just about any photo configuration. Even though the photos on the sample page were different than what I was working with, I was able to adjust the design to work for me.

Check out the video below to see how I did it!
