Enjoy the Little Things

It isn’t every day you get your picture taken with Spiderman. Or that Spiderman gives you a lift. I was lucky enough to get a ride, and it was definitely a scrapworthy moment.

Enjoy the Little Things

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I used this sketch for my layout. Since I didn’t have two photos for my page, I used one photo along with a 4 x 6 card.
  • I have mixed feelings about the text paper I used as the background paper. It’s a great pattern, but I think the two patterned papers with text on them compete a bit. If I were doing it over, I’d probably choose something different for the background.
  • Speaking of do-overs, I’d probably find another place for the journaling. I feel like it’s all crowded in the spot available for it. I might have done hidden journaling underneath the photo or on a tag tucked behind the photo. But I don’t dislike this page enough to redo it.

Thanks so much for visiting. Until next time. :)

Laugh Today

Sometimes I scrapbook amazing photos that are almost artistic. Then there are photos like this . . .

Laugh Today

As you can see, it’s not a perfect photo. But I love the story behind it, and that’s why I scrapbooked it. Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I did a lot of multimedia on this page. I started by adding ink to the background and then layering gold texture paste in three places on the layout.
  • I used this layout as inspiration for the design of my page.
  • The wood veneer pieces were the last things I added to this layout. They add a nice bit of dimension.
  • I’m including a closeup of the journaling below so you can read the story behind the photo. My sister and I laughed so much when I went through my photos later and we saw this one.

Model Behavior

A soft color scheme was perfect for this photo of me and my niece Stephanie.

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I used the multicolor stripe paper to come up with the color scheme for this page. It was a little tricky because I kept finding adorable pink and orange embellishments. But I use pink so often in my scrapbooking that I wanted to do something different on this layout. I’m delighted with the results.
  • Here is the sketch I used for this layout.
  • The yellow script and floral paper is from my stash. It is a very thin, single-sided design that I’ve had since the early 2000s, so this layout is part of my Something Old, Something New series. I considered using it as the background for this page, but it would have been too overwhelming.

For more information about this layout, check out the process video below.

Until next time! :)
