CKC 2016 #5, final

I got fewer layouts done this year than I normally would. The difference was twofold.

I didn’t pack kits for each layout like I would normally do. This meant I was spending more time browsing through supplies to come up with ideas (see post #3 and #4 to see how my thought processes played out). […]

CKC 2016 #4

So I have all these photos full of purple. Where to go with the color scheme? I don’t want more purple. So I look through my supplies, embellishments mainly, to see what I can decorate with and pull colors from those items. I grabbed that die cut that reads “you are my greatest adventure.” (This kid […]

CKC 2016 #3

Where to start when you don’t know where to start? That is the problem I had with this next set of photos. I’m at a crop with a limited set of supplies and I don’t know what I want to use to capture the mood of these photos. Even at home with a whole craft […]

CKC 2016 #2

Simple doesn’t have to mean boring. This design is simple with only 2 pattern papers used. A few stickers and a few wood veneer make up just small embellishment clusters. Most of the oomph of the page comes from the diagonal flow and the title lettering choice. When you are scrapping don’t worry about every layout […]

CKC 2016 #1

I attended my local CKC a couple of weekends ago. I grabbed my project binder and shoved a load of DCWV stacks along with some other favorite supplies into my rolling tote. When I sat down to work I pulled up the most recent DCWV stack-a-holic challenge. Here is the layout sketch…

Shaped clips

I didn’t think I owned any shaped paper clip products. While I like the idea of them I’ve never purchased any because I didn’t think I would really find uses for them. I happened upon a couple that came in a kit-club kit that I had stashed away. This is the second time for this […]

Pocket page products

I’ve talked about this before, but I never use pocket scrapbook pages (well almost never). Yet I love the products. Last year I took at CKC class based on pocket page products determined to try using these on regular layouts. I haven’t much. But I still love the idea. So here I am, inspired by SCT […]

Six photos, single page!

Think you can’t get a lot of photos on a single page layout? Well, think again. I often use multiple photos on my layouts. Even so, six did turn out to be a stretch for me. This was the task I accepted by SCT magazine in my continuing quest to work on NSD layout challenges. I […]

Hair Changes

My kid decided she wanted really short hair over a year ago. Not only that but an array of colors were in store for us (I dye her hair for her). This page shows the first of those color changes.

The page design was inspired by two factors
