Simple Stories: Our Story is My Favorite

With four children and several commitments, like most couples, my husband and I can have a hard time finding one-on-one time with one another. But the great thing is when we do have time together we just pick up right where you left off. I feel lucky and blessed to have built a life with my best friend and wanted to record my feelings on this page using the beautiful Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection.

The florals in this collection are incredible! I fussy-cut the largest floral from the Always Be True paper to accent the top left corner of my photo.

I cut out the “LOVE” tiles and the “Every Love Story” quote from the 4×4 Elements paper to use as a title and subtitle, accenting them with Bits & Pieces die cuts and stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet.

I placed everything on a large block of Love Day paper (pink text) and then capped off the top and bottom with strips of the black and white ticking stripe from the 4×6 Vertical Elements paper. I cut the bottom strip with a pair of large scalloped scissors that I have in my stash. I then added computer-generated journaling strips below.

Doodlebug Design: Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Like most people, I have a deep weakness for chocolate, so of course I love all of the adorable images of chocolates in the French Kiss collection!

A couple of years ago my son went to a high school Halloween Dance with his date dressed as Forrest Gump and Jenny. I took these cute pictures of him before he left and decided to use the Chocolate Box Shape Sprinkles and the Box of Chocolates digital cut file to recreate a larger version of the Sweetheart Doodlepop sticker from the collection.

I measured the chocolate shape sprinkles and then resized the Box of Chocolates cut file to fit them. It was so much fun filling up my heart shaped box! If only I could take a taste! They look so delicious!

I used the Lily White Abigail Letter Stickers to spell out my title. I placed the top half of the title on vellum clouds created with the Clouds cut file. I resized and reproportioned the banner from the Boy In Airplane cut file to house the word “chocolate.”

I added more vellum clouds to the top of the layout along with a few Heart Throb Shape Sprinkles. So cute!

I placed one of my photos on the red card from the French Kiss Cards & Envelopes. I love the way the bracket shape adds a fun design element to this part of the layout. I tucked in a few flower and chocolate die cuts from the Odds & Ends pack in the lower corner and then added a few Chit Chat phrases to the bottom.

I loved playing with the cute chocolate images in this collection so much! Next, I think I will make a page documenting my LOVE of chocolate. What will you use them for?

February PageMaps: Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy February! New sketches are up at PageMaps.com and I’m here with the page I created using the Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection. I know I’ve said it before, but I will say it again … Becky’s sketches are so much fun to work with! I love her style and working with her sketches always gets me in the mood to scrap!

Each year for Valentine’s Day we put a treat and a card out on the kitchen counter for each one of my kids. The morning is always a whirlwind, but I just happened to take a quick snapshot which allowed me to document this family tradition for our albums.

janaeubankpagemapsfebruary2019simplestorieskissingboothscrapbooklayout2600

I cut out the title from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements paper. I angled it slightly so that the corner between the word “Valentine’s” and “Day” frames my daughter in the background of the counter photo posing with her hands in a heart shape. That is my goofy-girl! Always photo-bombing whenever she gets the opportunity!

When I layer strips of patterned paper on a layout, I think it’s fun to add a different treatment to the ends of the different strips. Here I used pinking shears on one, tore the next one, and then dovetailed the third strip.

I used lots of the Bits & Pieces die cuts on this page, and then added dimension with the adorable Kissing Booth Puffy Stickers! I also used the “It’s a Date” stamp set to add the date to the side of the 3×4 Journaling Card.

What does your family do each year to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Do you make sugar cookies? Do you make cards and treats for each other? I’d love to hear about YOUR family traditions!

Doodlebug Design: Love is in the Air

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. Last year I was invited to come on our local lifestyle television show to talk about papercrafting for Valentine’s Day. Of course I took photos of my experience, and the French Kiss collection, with it’s lovey-dovey vibe, was perfect for scrapbooking about it.

I used the “Love Is In the Air” sticker from the This & That Sticker Sheet as my title. To go along with the title I built a scene at the top of the page including the hot air balloon and several cloud die cuts from the Odds & Ends pack. I added a little bird from the French Kiss Shape Sprinkles to the basket of the hot air balloon, and then added additional flower sprinkles to the balloon for additional detail.

The white spray mist droplets make you feel like the hot air balloon is floating through a romantic night sky.

I wanted to break up the two photos a bit, so I added flower die cuts from the Odds & Ends pack along with a couple of phrase stickers from the This & That sticker sheet. I also added a couple of the Heart Throb Shape Sprinkles, and a pink tab sticker (This & That stickers) to the top photo.

I added another adorable scene at the bottom of the layout next to the title sticker. A cute couple on a tandem bicycle are enjoying one another’s company as they take a romantic, scenic ride past the Eiffel Tower. I added flower stickers from the French Kiss Shape Sprinkles to add dimension to the bicycle’s wheels. Love is definitely in the air!
