Love Bug Mix & Match Layout

Who is your love bug?  Maybe it might be your husband, your child, your niece or nephew, your grandchild….. whoever it is, this is the perfect layout to add their photos to.

Document the reasons why they are your “Love Bug”.  Trust me, it will make them feel loved beyond measure!

Creating a simple, yet embellished layout does not have to be a lot of work.  Cut several strips of paper the same length and width, and then a few flowers at the end of each and you are golden.

It’s Game Day

Hi everybody! It’s almost that time of year when the little man starts up soccer again. I just received an email reminder to  register him and I am getting excited! I love watching him play with his friends out on the field. It is such a joy to see him having such a great time playing outside and not on the computer.

Love Your Life

Isn’t life beautiful?

There are so many days that I just have to step back and remind myself how beautiful this life we live really is.  Take a deep breath, and take in all the sights, sounds, smells, and people around me.

By snapping a few photos of these things, is a wonderful reminder to LOVE LIFE!  Today I challenge you to snap at least two photos of the things that will remind you to do this. Once you have these photos, add them to a layout! Throw a few flowers on there for the beauty-factor!

A Gem of a Layout – using Gemstone Patterns

A gem is a precious or unique stone which can be used in jewellery.

In this case, it is precious and can be used on your scrapbooking layouts.

The way I see it, scrapbooking layouts equate to jewellery.  Each unique in their own way.

Not sure about you, but there are times when I am creating that things just fall together. This is one of those times.  When I looked at the diamond shaped Custom Cutting System pattern I was trying to envision a flower.  So, I just cut out several of the shapes until it all came together.

I do have to say that creating this layout will require Repositionable Adhesive.  You will want your diamond shapes to be flexible until you have them placed exactly where you want them.  Once you have the entire flower shape created, you will adhere it to the layout using your Tape Runner.

Digital – Mix & Match Layouts

I am a traditional scrapbooker as well as a digital designer and two of my favourite embellishments are flowers and gems when I am scrapping traditionally.  So… you can only imagine my delight when the Mix & Match Digital Kits were introduced…and in so many beautiful colours!!!

I love layering different flower combinations along with the gems and the HUGE benefit when scrapping digitally is you never run out of your favourites because the supply is endless!  I am going to share a few pages I designed to show you different colour combinations and ways to decorate your pages with these “little gems”.

Traditionally Non-traditional with Mix & Match

I feel the need to give you a little history of me.  I love to create cards and mini albums but I had a mental block with scrapbooking I could not get rid of.  I wanted to scrapbook the numerous photos I have at home but I always felt like I would do it wrong.  I was afraid of someone pointing out everything that I shouldn’t do on a layout.  Not sure how I broke the mental block but it is gone forever!! I realised the pages I create are for me and my family to enjoy, it’s not like I am publishing them for the world to see…oh wait!  I am!!  I believe my style of scrapbooking is far from traditional but I am always happy with the result.  I hope you enjoy the layout I made of my great nephew Bannon.

Getaway Memories Scrapbooking Layout

We all love to getaway.  Whether it is for a day, a weekend, or a week-long vacation- it refreshes the body and soul.

Last summer, my husband and I took a week off of work to move both of our boys into their new homes.  One to his sophomore year of college in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the other to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for his first year of law school.  It was an adventure to say the least.  We travelled over 3000 miles and saw parts of the country that we had never seen before.  We loved capturing photos of the road signs and countryside along the way.
