I picked up these gold chipboard, nested hearts from JoAnn’s this past spring and thought they would look so pretty on this page of my daughter going to Senior Prom. Her dress was a soft, mauve-purple, and looks so pretty with the Crate Paper Gather collection that I am using here.
I had quite a bit of space at the top of the page that I wanted to fill, but I didn’t want to cover up the heart paper. I tucked a couple of ephemera die cut cards behind the main photo and then added a hand-stitched circle around my design.
The open hearts were a fun place to anchor my journaling strips.
I fussy-cut the flowers and ticket borders for this page from patterned papers in the collection. The tickets layered together made a great “shelf” for the title and photos.
This page turned out so pretty! I can’t wait to do more stashbusting with this collection!
Wishing you a creative day!
Yesterday I shared a scrapbook page using the Apple Cider collection by October Afternoon. I love the unique color combination of this set!
The day we went on this fall drive, my daughter wore a pink and blue shirt. Not exactly fall colors, but with this collection it works!
I really love the fall trees in this collection. I decided to fussy-cut three of them out and build a little forest around my photos.
I also fussy-cut out this “Hello Fall” wood slice shape to use as a subtitle at the top of the page. The pumpkins were also fussy-cut from a cut-apart card.
I’m still trying to make use of all of the alphabets hanging out in my stash. These yellow chipboard letters are from Cosmo Cricket and the stitched red letters are from a set of American Crafts Thickers. I think the faux stitching is the perfect touch for a fall page!
The puffy sticker squirrels were the perfect size to add next to my trees and pumpkins!
The band of colorful patterned paper at the top of the page ties the colors in the photos together with the rest of the elements and fall colors on the page.
Thanks for coming by! I hope you do something fun this weekend!
Hello! It’s been awhile since I have shared a process video. I recently pulled out two older paper collections by October Afternoon (Apple Cider and Saturday Morning) and used them to scrapbook these cute, Autumn photos of my girl posing by a totem pole at a local ski resort.
Watch the video of me creating this page, or scroll down to the detail photos below!
I was on a roll while these supplies were out on my desk and ended up making a second page. Check back tomorrow to take a look!
See you then!
I’ve hung onto the Simple Stories Emoji Love collection because I knew the emojis would be absolutely perfect for this page about my son getting his second set of braces. He was kind enough to let my husband take this crazy picture of him in the chair with the typical goggles and crazy contraption holding his mouth open (Classic!).
My son’s braces have been off for over a year now, so it’s probably time I get these photos of my son’s journey with braces documented. *giggle*
HERE WE GO AGAIN
I love the snarky words and phrases in this collection, especially to express feelings about a situation such as this. Plus! Teenagers are just naturally snarky. Hehe!
I layered the sunglasses on top of this emoji to mimic my son with the goggles in the photo. It makes me smile every time I see it!
I used up some letter stickers from my stash for the title and then used a black journaling pen to write the journaling below.
I thought the food was a perfect accent for a page all about the journey of my son’s teeth. Ha!
