National Scrapbooking Month

Happy National Scrapbooking Day and Month!! I’ll be it I am a bit late today in posting this since the day is almost over. But it is never late to celebrate memory keeping!! I don’t complete layout as often as I want but crafting is what calms and de-stresses me! I wanted to share a couple of layouts I completed recently.  I have been able to use some to the paper packs I have been saving for  a while.

This layout I designed using the Beary Christmas paper pack.  I am not pleased with the color exposure but I am happy how the layout turned out.

This lay out is using the Dream Big paper pack.  It is one of my favorites as is it great for boy colors!

I hope you are celebrating by getting a few layouts completed yourself.  I am getting caught up with the photos I have printed.  So soon I will need to work on photos and getting them printed so I an take the next step and get them scrapbooked.

Happy Crafting!

My Layout Challenge #2

So if you missed my first post last week, I made a resolution to complete a scrapbook layout a week at minimum.  I have been off to a great start as I have actually completed more but that was the point :-).  I have a few page kits that I have had hanging around for a while now.  I decided I would complete one of these.

All the trimmings ~ Scrapbook fun addicts ~ Holiday layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comI had fun assembling this and having most of the thinking done for me but I also really enjoy the creative part.  This kit was one I purchased 3 years ago but I have been holding on to.  It was designed by Scrapbook Fun Addict.  I am happy my piles are dwindling so my resolution if working!!

Happy Crafting!

Believe Shadow Box

So one of our fellow Close to My Heart consultants Michelle Snyder, designed this fabulous layout in our Colonial White Shadow Box as a Operation Smile fundraiser.  The response was so overwhelming that she shared her creation with her fellow convention going consultants.  I truly love this layout and will look forward to hanging it every year.

Believe Shadow Box ~ White Pines ~ CatScrapbooking.comIsn’t this just beautiful!  Just remember at the end of this month you will no longer be able to order the White Pines Paper pack.

Stampers with Attitude ~ Happy Holidays Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop!! The Stampers with Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  This month the Stampers with Attitude are going to be showcasing Happy Holidays based artwork.   If you are just hopping here from SHEILA BENNETT’S Bl0g  then you are in the right spot. The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants at the end of this blog.

I wanted to get ahead and create a Christmas layout so that once Christmas is over I can just drop the photos in and hopefully stay on top of things.  Well that is the thought process but reality is it still takes me months to print my photos.  Well at least the hard part is done the designing :-).

Here is my layout I designed using Yuletide Carol paper pack.

Yuletide Layout ~ We  Believe ~ Catscrapbooking.comFor this layout I used both my Silhouette and Cricut to make cuts.  The poinsettias and journaling shape are cut using the Artiste and Art Philosophy cartiges.  The circle, title and flourish were cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  I designed this layout with flip flaps in mind as it would be easy to add them depending on the number of photos taken at Christmas.

List of products used:

  • Paper Pack~ Yuletide Carol
  • Cardstock ~ Cashmere, New England Ivy, Ruby and Colonial White
  • Cricut Cartridges ~ Art Philosophy and Artiste
  • Embellishments ~ Gold Sequins Z2012, Gold Shimmer TrimZ1985
  • Makers ~ Journaling pen and Carmine ShinHan Marker Z2448
