Colorful title

I had the previous layout in mind when I saw the prompt by SCT magazine for a colorful title. But since I used that page for the tag challenge I created this page with a colorful title.

 

I chose these photos for this prompt since they lacked much color themselves. This gave me a […]

Tags, tags and more tags

Coincidence is a funny thing. I was searching through my stash looking for doilies for my last layout when I happened upon a package of tags that I forgot I had. Then up comes the challenge to use at least 6 tags by SCT magazine. Bingo!

I started by laying out a photo grid and building […]

Fabric fringe

Another of Shimelle’s challenges for NSD2016 was to use fabric on a page. I went with some fringe (in a fabric I might not have chosen but is what I had on hand). It mimics the story about my daughter dying her hair with Kool-Aid. Inspired by the fabric I added in other textile type […]

Painted background

When I saw that Shimelle and SCT Magazine both had painted/messy background challenges I knew right away what I wanted to work on.

I used Tim Holtz distress stains to add “photo mats” to my images and messy splatters. I used a strip of pattern paper to draw the color inspiration from. Some colorful […]

Masculine travel page

I’ve got photos of a vacation we took to California. I’m putting these pages in each of my kids albums. So I have similar photos that are being scrapped in differing styles. This one goes in my then-16 year old son’s album. While I don’t believe that guys automatically shun flowers and sparkle, it is true […]

Bubble Bath

Ready to giggle? I couldn’t help laughing when I went to check on my daughter in the bath one night. And this is what I found she had been up to…

She’d gotten can of shaving cream lathered into a wild froth and created a lovely harido. A harido with a side of attitude.

I […]

Meanwhile

When my middle kid came down with a nasty cold that left her sleeping for days on end, she missed the first (and only!) snow of the season. She was so bummed. I knew I had to capture that on a layout. So, that is the first page I worked on this NSD2016.

National Scrapbook Day 2016

Whose favorite holiday happened this weekend? Mine! What? Yours too you say? Well awesome!

NSD is a time when I find lots of inspiration and I prioritize time to work on this craft that I love. I felt particularly productive this time around. I’m hoping I can still get more in, because even though the day […]

Color scheme challenge

Welcome to another day of the Shimelle scrap party. I looked over ALL the challenges this morning (benefit of her being GMT and me being PST) and decided to start with the color story challenges since it best fit the project I wanted to work on next.

Using the colors tan, red, aqua, navy and […]

Last one (for today)

The 4th, and last for me, challenge that Shimelle offered up today for this weekend’s scrap party was to scrap an “older” photo. Right now all of my photos qualify as older, I suppose, as I am working through photos from last year. I would have preferred to work on something much older, but this […]
