March PageMaps

Can you believe it’s March?!! Where in the world did February go?

Hello, friends! Today I have my March PageMaps to share with you. I decided to do a bit of stashbusting on this one and pulled out an older collection by Simple Stories from 2015 called We Are Family. I also dusted off a few stamps and older alphabet stickers and incorporated them on this page, as well.

COOKBOOK FUNDRAISER

I loved the pattern of the background paper, but it was taking focus away from my photos. I added a full sheet of vellum over the top and stitched in place with my sewing machine. You still have the fun pattern and colors, but they are now muted, allowing the focus to be on the design in the center of the page.

My punches got a good work out on this page, too! I fussy cut the flower clusters from patterned paper and then added a dimensional flower on top created with American Crafts and Stampin’ Up punches.

I even made some layered butterflies to accent the top right corner of the page.

Several years ago, journal block stamps were all the rage and I collected a fair amount of them. I’m glad I did! This tall block fits perfectly here to the left of the photo. I don’t know who the manufacturer was, but I can tell you that the “Notes:” stamp that I used at the top of the block was made by Creative Cafe.

I added another flower cluster to the bottom right corner of the page. I also added a metal arrow that I picked up at Tuesday Morning within the last year.

The patterned borders at the bottom of the block were created with a border punch (notebook) and patterned scissors (scallop). Oldies, but goodies! I still use both of these ALL the time!

Stashbusting: Senior Prom

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!

Stashbusting: Cascade Cutie

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.

Stashbusting Scrapbook Process Video

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.

TOTEM-LY CUTE

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!
