So I took this kit with me to CHA in homes of getting to work on it. The first night we went out and enjoyed Chicago and the 2nd night we scrapped! I was able to get my first 3 pages done with the kit. The next day after the show was over, we had about 6 hours to kill before our red-eye plane left. So we did what every scrapper would do - we pulled out our kits and scrapped in the hotel lounge area - suitcases in all! It was a blast! I then was able to scrap when we traveled this past week! Fun times!
I printed these pictures knowing I couldn't wait to use the striped papers with it! I did the Mccall title in the making memories letters and printed the skatepark and journaling from my computer. I used the border stripe along the left side and then matted the photos with it. I custom made photo corners. I think used my ink to make the stars brown and white. I knew they would stand out on the orange paper. As a final touch, I added the ribbon and brads.
With 3 kids we don't get pictures together that much. Our friend Crystal took this of us in beautiful Idaho. I love the picture and had it printed in sepia. I think the layout came out good but didn't scan well (sorry). I used the orange floral paper as the background. On the left side of the paper I used ribbon and on the right side, I used the sticker strip and distressed it. I think put the word us on cardstock and put it behind the brown frame. I then cut a strip of the striped paper to put at the bottom. I used the journaling card to write a message to Larry and attached it to the photo with the frame accessory. I tied a little ribbon around the striped paper and then I was done!
We took a lot of pictures this summer (over 1500) so I have lots to scrap! These are some fishing pictures from Idaho. Andrew was so excited to go fishing and catch a fish! I used the dot paper (my 2nd favorite paper) as the background. I then created my fishing title with my favorite sticker letters :) and then handwrote "in the orthwest" using the rubon N for Northwest. Next I cut small pieces of ribbon to line up along the photo. I also cut a few strips of the striped paper. I again used a piece of my striped paper to mat the bottom of the photo (the striped paper is now gone). Layout #4
Next I printed some pictures of Ezra with his first Jamba Juice. He loved it and wouldn't put it down. I placed the photos diagonally on the paper and cut the sides. Next I cut 2 strips of paper from the dot paper and red floral (I have no problem using floral paper with boys). I think matted the main photo in the dot paper and cut another floral strip at the bottom.
I am not done with my kit. In fact I have a page partially done. I can't wait to use it up!
