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!
As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share the final pages I created with the October sketches at PageMaps. I’ve had the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection hanging out in my stash for over a year and decided to get it used up. These sketches were the perfect way to put this collection to use and I love the result!
One summer my husband and I challenged our kids not to drink soda for a cash reward. They did it, but as you can see in these photos, they were pretty happy to have their soda back at the end of the summer. Haha!
HEY, HEY, HEY
My daughter went to a day camp one summer with her best friend. This snapshot of her in her camp t-shirt was the only thing I had to remember the occasion. My daughter detailed the events of her camp in her personal journals, so a quick page about her experience was all that was needed for our family scrapbook.
Now that the weekend is upon us, do YOU have plans to do a little scrapbooking? Grab an older collection from your stash and challenge yourself to create as many pages as you can with it. The sketches at PageMaps are a great way to get you going!
Happy scrapping to you!
Working with the monthly sketches at PageMaps always puts me in the mood to do some stashbusting. I’m back today and tomorrow with a four more pages I created using the sketches this month.
This time I used the two-page sketch along with the Bella Blvd. Mind Your Manners collection to scrapbook my daughter’s 10th birthday party.
The pictures are dark and grainy and some are a bit blurry, but these cute papers brighten them right up!
I used the letter stickers for this collection to build the title. There was an odd space to the right of the word “bash” afterwards. My simple fix was to punch three hearts and just line them up in a row to fill up the space.
I added a few more punched hearts around the page to tie them in with the title.
This next page was a simple one and came together quickly using the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection. I love that!
I decided to do a small title on this layout to stay true to the sketch, but honestly, it feels a bit naked to me. Haha! I’m wondering if I should have done a LARGE and in charge title above the tags/photos. I’m probably over-analyzing it, though. *giggle* And it’s good to try something new once in awhile, right?
I LOVE cloud dies! They are the perfect “filler” for an empty spot. These ones are extra cute with their faux stitching and flat bottoms! I bought them from AliExpress a looong time ago … but, I would highly suggest adding some cloud dies to your stash if you don’t have any. ❤
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing me dig into my stash a bit and maybe inspired you to tackle a collection you own that could use a little crafting love. *wink*
Have a great day!
