Love Right Here

Can I just say how much I adore this boy? He is my little sweetheart, and I will never get tired of creating scrapbook pages about him.

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • Big thanks to karinec at Two Peas Refugees for gifting me with several oval embellishments. I used a gray one on this layout, and it inspired the title as well.
  • The photo inspired the yellow and gray color scheme. I added a pop of navy blue as well and really like this addition.
  • I initially tried using three of the stitched hearts like the one at the bottom left of the page. They were too overwhelming, however, so I replaced two of them with smaller gold hearts and like the results much better.

Of course, there is a process video, so you can watch how this layout comes together.

I’ll be back with another video. See you soon!

Eclipse Goodies

My coworkers and I had an eclipse party during the solar eclipse a few years ago, and I took a picture of the goodies everyone brought to mark the occasion. I finally got it scrapbooked.

So many eclipse-themed goodies!

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • This page took a long time to finish. I started it one way and moved to something else. I think the background paper is part of the struggle. It’s a cupcake sprinkle pattern from an old Felicity Jane kit. That pattern seemed very appropriate thematically, but it’s a little busier than a plain background, so I kept questioning it. In the end, I like it.
  • I used up most of my remaining 2 x 2 cards from old Messy Box (no longer in business) kits. I think I have two left, so yay me!
  • I love all the colors on this page but especially appreciate the pop of red.

As always, there’s more information about how this layout came together. You can see it in my process video.

Hope you enjoy! I’ll see you again soon.

This Is So Sweet

I love attending fan conventions, and I have several photos yet to scrapbook. Here’s one of them.

David Tennant and Me

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I started creating this one at the 2018 Victoria Marie Scrapbook Retreat and finished it this past weekend. I changed the title and added lots of little bits because there can always be more embellishments.
  • The coral letters of the title are from a clear sticker book that I’ve barely touched before now. I need to make sure these get used more often, because the book comes with letters in four different colors! Lots of titles waiting to come to life.
  • Choosing the patterned paper for this layout was tough. Partly because of the blue background of the photo. I’m happy with how things worked out in the end.

There are lots more details behind the creation of this layout. Learn more in my process video.

Thanks so much for watching! Take care.

If He Fits, He Sits

I love creating layouts about my boys. This one features Cupid.

If He Fits, He Sits layout

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • This page started with a different title: It’s Cupid’s House–We Just Live Here. I’m still going to use the title for a page, but it wasn’t quite the right one for this one.
  • The color stripes at the bottom of the patterned paper determined the color scheme of this layout. I am especially fond of the pops of blue.
  • That wood veneer has been languishing in my stash for a while. It’s so nice to finally put it to use. I love how the color matches the background paper.

There are a few surprises in how this layout came together. You can check them out in the process video.

Thanks for watching. Until next time. <3
