I tend to get snap-happy with my camera on holidays and always have many photos I love and want to include in our scrapbooks. Two-page layouts to the rescue! This Easter layout today is created with the darling Simple Stories Bunnies & Baskets Simple Set
. Check it out below!
I placed my photos in two rows, but wanted to call more attention to the group shot of my kids. I matted this photo with yellow cardstock, and then placed it on a block of The Hunt Is On paper
, with it’s cute Easter egg pattern. In the corner I added a cluster of stickers
accented with a button.
I fussy-cut the large characters and icons from the 3×4 & 4×6 Elements Paper
to use for my layout. They are the perfect scale for a double-page spread! I also used the journal card to house my journaling on the left page.
I wanted my title to really stand out and decided to create a little scene with the bunny and basket
next to the “Hoppy Easter” sticker
. I die cut a sunburst on my electronic die cutting machine to place behind the bunny, anchoring all of the elements together in one cluster.
Before adding the sunburst to the page, I used my sewing machine to zig-zag stitch along each ray, creating lots of texture! Manually die cut clouds and enamel star stickers from my stash round everything out.

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?

When I think back to the winter days of my childhood, I fondly remember playing for what seemed like hours out in the snow. Now that I am a mom, I realize that I probably was only out there for about 20 minutes before I came back inside for a mug of hot cocoa. Ha! At least, that is the way it has been when my children were little.
Even though my journaling for this page is a bit snarky, I assure my girls that I still love them “snow much” with this cute banner die cut from the Bits & Pieces pack. I stitched around the edges of the paper layers with black thread to tie them in with the black lines of the adorable hand drawn art in this collection.
I love this chipboard snowglobe with it’s cozy little house. Looking at the wisp of smoke coming from the chimney makes me think of the smell of chimney smoke outside on a cold winter day! I added the pair of snowmen, fussy-cut from one of the 4×4 Elements cards
, to mimic my girls in the photo.
I created the title “Snow Angels” by combining the “SNOW” sticker word
, with the die cut word “angels.” I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut out the word on two different colors of cardstock with the Lettering Delights Xiphoid Script font
Next, I used large circle punches to create the journal spot and then accented it with pine trees cut from the 4x4 Elements cards
and a pair of snowflake circle die cuts from the Bits & Pieces Pack.
I love scrapbooking photos of my kids playing in the snow and need to make a point to get out there this winter with my camera. Have you snapped any winter photos lately?
