More Stashbusting with PageMaps Sketches: Part 2

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share the final pages I created with the October sketches at PageMaps. I’ve had the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection hanging out in my stash for over a year and decided to get it used up. These sketches were the perfect way to put this collection to use and I love the result!

FAMILY CHALLENGE

One summer my husband and I challenged our kids not to drink soda for a cash reward. They did it, but as you can see in these photos, they were pretty happy to have their soda back at the end of the summer. Haha!

HEY, HEY, HEY

My daughter went to a day camp one summer with her best friend. This snapshot of her in her camp t-shirt was the only thing I had to remember the occasion. My daughter detailed the events of her camp in her personal journals, so a quick page about her experience was all that was needed for our family scrapbook.

Now that the weekend is upon us, do YOU have plans to do a little scrapbooking? Grab an older collection from your stash and challenge yourself to create as many pages as you can with it. The sketches at PageMaps are a great way to get you going!

Happy scrapping to you!

Close to My Heart: Craft with Heart Scrapbooking Subscription Kit

Hello! My friends at Close to My Heart recently contacted me and asked me to try out their new Craft with Heart Scrapbook Subscription kit. They sent me the first four months and I wanted to share it with all of you!

Join me in the videos below as I take a tour through the kit contents. You will see each kit up close and personal.

Next, check out the first two layouts I created with the September kits. First, I create a double-page layout adding in items from my stash to customize the page to my own style. For the second layout, I cut up the kit components and rework them on a single page layout.

DCWV: Garden Charm Paper Pad

I LOVE shopping for scrapbooking supplies just as much as I love using them! One of my weekly jaunts is to my local Tuesday Morning store to see what is new in the way of scrapbook supplies. I love all the Latest-and-Greatest … but I love collecting older supplies that match my style of creating, too!

A week or so ago, I picked up the beautiful “Garden Charm” paper pad by Die Cuts with a View. It was only $5. I knew I could create a few pages with it and then be happy to pass the rest of it along to a friend for that price!

Here are the pages I created with these beautiful papers.

First, a double page layout about Memorial Day.

REMEMBER

I loved how several of the papers had a shiny coating on the pattern. The tone-on-tone glossy pattern printed on the kraft paper is so cute!

If you read my journaling, you will see that my parents purchased and had their own headstone placed next to my grandparents grave at the same time they were ordering the headstone for my grandparents. They revealed it to us this Memorial Day when we went to take flowers to my grandparents.

It really struck me as weird (don’t worry … my parents know I feel this way. Ha!) … but I also understand them wanting to prepare so that WE, their kids, won’t have to wonder what they would have wanted. My parents are great about thinking through the details of things ahead of time … but I hope I won’t have to appreciate their foresight on their headstone for MANY, MANY years.

The canvas, red, polka-dotted flowers are something that have been waiting for me to use in my stash for WAY too long. They are by Jillibean Soup and were one of the first products I purchased from that company. I’m so happy they found a home on this page. They look darling here!

The metal arrows were another recent Tuesday Morning find and work great as a page element to emphasize the title.

While I had these supplies on my desk, I created a similar single page using the exact same color scheme and rest of the canvas, polka-dotted flowers.

ENJOYING THE WINDMILLS

I LOVE using several different letter stickers for a longer title. I don’t do it often enough, because it takes more time to make the words fit just right, but I’m always happy with the results every time I DO do it!

Those punched birds were a recent score from a local online ad. A man had a box of several McGill punches that he was selling for $2 a punch. I had never seen these birds before, and I ADORE them! I’m so happy to add this cute punch to my arsenal!

For this page, I used metal dies to add several leaves and branches around the canvas flowers, creating one large cluster. I LOVE how it turned out! And the trio of red pearls makes me happy, too!

Again, you can see the adorable tone-on-tone thermography (I think that is what it is called), on the kraft background paper. Polka dots always steal my heart!

Okay, one last simple page with the Garden Charm papers …

GRANDMA’S BEDROOM

For this page, I pulled out the blue, kraft, and purple patterns from the paper pad and combined them together on a white patterned paper background from my stash (Pebbles – Walnut Grove – Harriet paper).

I picked up these blue flower stickers at Dollar Tree, of all places, several years ago. Blue was my grandma’s favorite color, so they were just so perfect for this page about her bedroom.

I used gold thicker letters for the title and then used a flourish/scroll metal die by Recollections to add some detail above.

Are you a bargain shopper when it comes to your scrapbook supplies? Do you collect bargains and rarely get around to using them (like me)? Maybe challenge yourself to create a few pages with your most recent finds this week! I’m glad I did!

See you again soon!

Simple Stories: Fabulous

The soft colors and elegant florals of the Simple Stories Beautiful collection complimented my photos on this page perfectly! Last Spring my family and I were on a weekend getaway when we decided to stroll the peaceful grounds of the St. George Temple. The sun was shining and many families were out enjoying the warmer weather. It was glorious!

I kept the background clean and simple with white cardstock. The photos also have white cardstock mats. I added another paper layer from the 6×8 pad behind the main photo to call subtle attention to it.

I fussy-cut the light blue florals from the Follow Your Heart paper as acents around the page. The “Fabulous” script word that I used from the title was fussy-cut from one of the 6×8 patterned sheets.

I stitched around the edge of the page for some texture, and then added subtle accents throughout the photo grouping with the cardstock phrase and tab stickers found on the Beautiful Sticker Sheet.

I love that my kids are always willing to take silly selfies with me!
