Let's Scrap - Scrap Retreat

In 2017 our annual scrapbooking retreat was very memorable. It snowed. . . a lot! We ended up loosing power for about 5 hours in the morning. It was actually a fun experience. I work so much with my Cricut that it was an awesome challenge to create layouts and to not use the Cricut for them. Despite the awesome challenge of creating without diecuts, I was very excited when the power came back on! 

I used the left side of the below sketch from Let's Scrap to create my layout.




My Layout:



To Create My Layout I used:

Pink Paislee: Switchboard paper stack
Mambi Chips: chipboard stickers
Small Talk Frames & Tags Cricut Cartridge: frames
The Girls Paperie by Margie: Paper Girl - letter stickers "Retreat"
Washi and brackets: from stash

Let's Scrap - The first Day

I am making a lot of progress on our family album. I'm finally into Sept 2017 with this layout here. I plan to scrap a lot this summer! My goal is to get to the point where I am scrapbooking current events. Hmmm, it is a lofty goal, but a girl has to have a goal! 

Let's Scrap has another great sketch out for you! I had one extra photo that I just couldn't leave out, see the center photo on the left side, so I had to alter the sketch just a bit. 

The Sketch:

Let's Scrap - Beach Fun

It's time for another awesome sketch over at the Let's Scrap blog! This one was a great challenge. At first glance I was like, maybe I'll just do the one side????? I wasn't sure how to get the design on the left side. But, using Cricut Design Space and the splice feature I was able to make the design. I decided to use some beach photos for a fun summer layout.

The Sketch:



To Create this Layout I used:

DCWV: Collage Art paper stack
Fancy Pants: True Friend - photo frame
Fancy Pants: Wave Searcher - chipboard stickers
Pack Your Bags Cricut Cartridge - Beach Fun title
Small Talk Frames and Tags cartridge: triangular shapes (used splicing feature to adjust)
Cuttlebug - die cutting - wave
