What are your goals for your scrapbooking this year? Do you have an unfinished project you’d like to tackle? A number of pages you’d like to complete? Maybe you want to put together that vacation album?
If you haven’t caught on, my goal is to create at least one video each week. 🙂 I’ve also loved making Scrapbook Process Videos, but would love to know if there is anything else you’d like to see from me? Let me know!
This week is another scrapbooking process video featuring the Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms collection. Click on the video below to watch, if that’s your thing. If not, you’re welcome to just scroll and see photos. 🙂 Either way, I’m so happy you stopped by to visit!
Have you seen the NEW Bunnies & Blooms collection from Simple Stories? Even if you don’t have any Easter or Spring photos to scrapbook, the florals and ‘B’ side patterns make this collection a must-have! I am using it today to scrapbook these photos of my daughter and I enjoying lunch together at her elementary school for her birthday.
NOTE: Scroll down if you’d like to watch the process video for this layout!
Some page designs come together quickly for me, while others are a struggle. This was one of those pages that practically put itself together. LOVE when that happens! You can watch my process in the video below.
I thought the ‘Bloom’ title worked well for this birthday layout, since my daughter was blooming into a young lady. 🙂 I love the floral accents on the title pieces in this collection. This piece is from the Chipboard Stickers, but you can find even more in the pack of Foam Stickers. Yay!
The machine stitching and distressed paper edges add texture.
Within the last year Simple Stories has added ‘Tags’ and ‘Journal Elements’ papers to their line-up of cut apart sheets with each collection. I love the journaling options this gives for scrapbook pages. I almost always use a journal spot to write the details on my layouts. That way, if I mess up writing the information, I’m not ruining my entire page. I simply cut out another one and try again! And there are so many different styles, colors, and sizes to choose from on a single sheet. Awesome!
Isn’t the Bunnies + Blooms collection beautiful?! Would you use it to scrapbook Spring or Easter photos? Or would you use it as an ‘everyday’ collection like I did here? Tell me in the comments below!
If you are ‘land-locked’ at home due to the coronavirus pandemic and looking for a distraction, I thought I’d remind you that I have a FREE class at Scrapbook.com!
Here’s a sneak peek at the Spring projects I created for this class, including a super-cute Easter basket that is WAY EASIER to create than it looks. (You can see a sneak peek of it in the top right corner of the photo.) Stop by my class to learn how!
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.
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!
