Batman page

Saturday, January 31, 2009

I had no intention of making this page, I was just going to make a page of all the characters Kyle met at Six Flags this past summer but I found this red Batman paper and I knew I had 4 Batman related pics and the paper fit so well. Have you ever done that, created a page just to use some cute paper or stickers? HA!

This page is for Kyle's book. I found this Batman paper at my LSS and then simply added some Basic Black accent paper and journaled. It was a really quick page to do. This page marked my 29th page complete for this year so far. I hope to get some more pages done during the Superbowl. I have no desire to watch that game.

Fingerpainting page

Friday, January 30, 2009

I really liked these pictures so I had to make a page with them. This page is for Kaitlyn's book. It is a pretty simple page. I used some more CM perfect fit paper from the Everyday pack, CM accent paper and some black rub-on letters.

Kaitlyn's 9th birthday

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

These are pages of Kaitlyn's 9th birthday party. Again I used the CM perfect fit paper and accents.

Bartlett Celebration pages

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

I use Creative Memories albums for my scrapbooks and they are in the process of doing away with the old pages and moving to true 12x12 pages. Once I get myself caught up I am going to switch to their side loading pages but for now I still have the old style pages along with some of their perfect fit paper (slightly smaller than 12x12). So I am trying to use up all the perfect fit paper that I have.

These pages are of the same event only the first one is a one-pager for Kyle's book and the second is a two-pager for Kaitlyn's book. Both use CM paper and accents.

O Christmas Tree

Friday, January 23, 2009

Christmas at Gran's pages

Thursday, January 22, 2009

I am working on getting "caught up" with my kids scrapbooks. I don't scrap chronologically, just whatever strikes my mood at the moment, but I put them in the book in chronological order. I should have Kaitlyn's book finished through the end of 2008 pretty soon. Here are a few pages I did for her this past weekend. The first is of Christmas 06 and the second is of Christmas 07 at my mom's house.

Supplies used: SU Pink Pirouette, polka dot paper from Archiver's (not sure the brand), CM Christmas stickers, SU chipboard letters, Garden Green craft ink, Best Friends alphabet set

Christmas 07

Supplies used: an old SU simply scrappin kit, Not Quite Navy paper, Close to Cocoa paper, Whisper White craft pad, borrowed clear alphabet stamps, white chipboard letter stickers

I am also very into using sketches these days. I printed a whole bunch of them from various places and put them in a notebook for easy access. Both of these were inspired from some sketches from an old (2003) sketch book of Becky Higgins.

Dianne's Cards

Sunday, January 18, 2009

I am back from my scrapbooking retreat and I completed 20 pages! Not as many as I had planned to finish but still good. I will be posting them over the next several days.

My friend Dianne made about 35 cards this weekend. I took some pictures and she gave me permission to post them here. They all turned out really nice. Here are just a few:

She even made matching envelopes!

Way to go Dianne!

Halloween 08- Kyle

Friday, January 16, 2009

This page is for Kyle's book. It is of this past Halloween. I am getting very into using sketches to help me with my pages and I am really liking how they turn out and how easy they are to follow (so far). For this page I used SBSC62 from Splitcoaststampers.

Here is my page (not too good of a picture though):

I am going on a "scrapbook retreat" this weekend. Really it is just a friend of mine who has a friend that has a cabin on a lake in Arkansas and some of us girls are going to get away. It just so happens that we all scrapbook so guess what we will be doing all weekend. I am so excited I can hardly stand to be at work today. I have laid out about 32 pages ready to be scrapped so hopefully I will have lots to show over the next few weeks of pages that I got finished. My goal is to be finished with 2008 by Memorial day weekend. We shall see!

favorite photos page

Saturday, January 3, 2009

I have set myself a goal of doing 2 pages per week this year. Well really I knew I wanted some kind of scrapbook goal and my CM (and good friend) consultant Amy put out a challenge to her customers to do 2 pages per week. So my goal was set! I made my first two pages in the last couple of days and it is one of my favorite layouts I have done in a while. I totally sraplifted the layout from the Jan 08 issue of Scrapbooking Trends (I love those books). I copied pretty much everything, even down to the color scheme and patterned paper (or what I had that matched closely).
