Scrapbook Page: Bless Your Heart

Every once in awhile I go back through my older photos and find ones that I didn’t scrapbook for one reason or another and decide whether or not I need to include those pictures in our family albums.

These little gems of my youngest daughter are from clear back in May 2010. They are just a couple of snapshots of my daughter sleeping on the couch. They are blurry and not very significant, but they tug at my mama heartstrings … so into the book they go!

BLESS YOUR HEART

Writing this blog post, I realize that I need to go back and add more journaling to this page about WHY I wanted to scrapbook these photos (sometimes I get a little too wrapped up in having fun playing with the fun papers 🙂 ) … I’m thinking I will add the words in the top right corner or on the back of the page.

Camryn is my child who never got whiny or cranky when she got tired … she simply would disappear to a quiet place in the house, usually her bedroom or the couch in the front living room, and fall asleep. She does the same thing at night. When she is tired and ready to go to bed … she just goes to bed! She continues to do that to this day. 🙂

I used my Sihouette Cameo machine to cut out the title for this page. I really love handscripted titles. I added a layer of white cardstock below the blue cardstock to give it a bit more lift and dimension.

Of course, you know, that I am addicted to cutting out florals for my pages these days. The Love Story collection by Webster’s Pages includes these roses that are to die for! I love the mix of feminine florals with the clean and simple patterns in the papers.

I cut the same floral out three times for this embellishment at the bottom of the page. Each time I cut out a different section of the roses and then layered them on top of one another with foam squares for added dimension. It’s a bit tough to see, but the center rose is all by itself, and then the rose to the left of it, along with a few leaves, are another layer. So fun to do!

Hope you are having a great week!

Simple Stories: Cabin Fever Layouts

This year our family took a road trip through the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Being in the mountains is my favorite place to be! I love enjoying the fresh air along with the sights and sounds of nature. You can bet that I took a lot of photos on that trip that I couldn’t wait to scrapbook using the Simple Stories Cabin Fever collection.
ADVENTURE

The first thing I did was to pull out the Bits & Pieces pack. I sifted through all of the designs and selected several that went along with my photos. The red checked geo tag die cut was perfect for calling attention to the photos of this beautiful waterfall.

I die cut the title from the Summer Camp Paper (red buffalo check) using my Silhouette Cameo 3 Electronic Die Cutting machine and the “Adventure” cut file by Simple Stories found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #199552). I added a pinecone decorative brad to the left side of the title.

I then used more Bits & Pieces die cuts and stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to create two clusters around the bottom of my photos. The floral clusters and word phrases are repeated in both clusters to tie things together.

This next page features a few snapshots taken closer to home … in fact, they were taken in our backyard last fall as we enjoyed the fire pit one cool night.
FIRE PIT

I wanted a plain cardstock background, but decided to make it a little more interesting by die cutting stars all over it. I placed a second sheet of the same color of cardstock behind the die cut piece. The result is a subtle tone-on-tone texture that doesn’t take away too much attention from the photos.

At the top of the photos I added the heart sticker matted with white cardstock. I added the date and a decorative brad for a bit of dimension.

I used my scissors to cut the fire from the 4×6 Vertical Elements Paper. It was the perfect size to accent my title! I couldn’t resist adding the chipboard piece with the  marshmallows on a stick above it. Too cute!

At the bottom of the page I layered up a few chipboard pieces. Two wood slice circles overlap each other and anchor the rectangle chipboard piece. I love what it says! “Life is better by a campfire” So true!

I cut the journal block from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements paper and added it to the right of the photos. I used a black pen to handwrite my journaling and then accented the bottom with the Roughin’ It washi tape and a floral sticker.

Bella Blvd: Home of the Brave

Today I am up on the Bella Blvd. Blog with a process video featuring a patriotic page created with a combination of Bella Blvd. collections!

This was a really fun one to put together! I love working with a color scheme … grabbing elements from several collections to put together my own unique look for a project.

The grid background paper is the Dancing Jellies paper from the Secrets of the Sea Boy collection. I then used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut the stars and stripes for the top of the page using the Blueberry Stars Paper (Oh My Stars Collection) and the On the Farm Paper (red wood slat paper from the Barnyard collection).

The title is a combination of two packages of acrylic words (Home, Namaste and Be You, Be Brave) along with the Blueberry Wonky Alphabet Letter Stickers. So cute!

I love the circular die cut pieces that I added to the right of the title … don’t they remind you of fireworks?!

I layered several star die cuts on top of the Blueberry Paper stars on the left side of the page and then added a mixture of Milk White, Blueberry Mix, and McIntosh Mix Puffy Stars stickers to give the page a “sparkly” look and add texture and dimension.

Below the photos, I added two house die cuts along with a little cloud. The houses tie in with the “Home” of the Brave title at the top of the layout.
