Let's Scrap: Thanksgiving & KTR

Image
For this challenge by Let's Scrap I decided to try scrapbooking some of our Star Wars pictures. I have such a hard time with character layouts. I'm never very sure how to embellish them but I really wanted to go ahead and try. Using sketches really help me get a starting point. I decided to use the left side of the sketch to create my layout. 


The Sketch:


My Take:

To Create this Layout I used:
Craft Smith: Happy Fall paper stack Colorbox: photo frame overlay Celebrate With a Flourish Cricut Cartridge: Turkey Straight From the Nest cartridge: Flourish Miss Kate's Cuttables: "Happy Thankgiving" title svg K & Compahy: cardstock embellishments Primas and Twine




Another layout using this sketch:


To Create this layout I used:
Paper Studio: Murphy's Square paper stack Don Juan Cricut Cartridge - title font Fancy Pants: Be Different - BAM ephermera Project Life: Explore - ephemera and paper clips

Christmas Decorating

Image
I am getting around, finally, to working on my Christmas Album. I didn't have a place to lay out my album for display at my new house so I had put working on it on the back burner. However, I just ordered this awesome console table ( a friend is making for me) and it will be the perfect spot to have at least one of my albums displayed. So, now I am pulling out my Christmas pictures (eck I still haven't worked on 2016) and getting my Christmas album up to date. Here is my first page for 2016. I used a sketch from a challenge on the ACOT forum
The Sketch:

My Take:


To Create this layout I used:
Craft Smith: Merry Everything paper stack
Project Life: Christmas Wishes - diecuts
Country Christmas Cricut Cartridge: title and branch with ornaments diecuts

Let's Scrap - Festive of Fantasy

Image
This week at Let's Scrap is a sketch that challenged me! If  you really look at it, there are a lot of elements to it if you want to follow it exactly. I mostly followed it with a some small deters. I decided, for the way I wanted my title to look, that I should swap the tags and the title so that I wouldn't be cutting my title in half. I also moved one of my horizontal pictures to the left because I really didn't want to split up Peter Pan and Wendy. That would be just wrong, I tell you! I also decided against making the left photo strip into a flap. However, I did incorporate the flap booklet which turned out great as I had more pictures that I wanted to include. Overall, even though this sketch challenged me it was also the most fun to do! I really hope y'all give this one a try!

Let's Scrap - The Dark Side

I've been working on the Star Wars portion of our DisneyWorld trip album. I had been putting it off because I'm not too good at character pages. I think this one ended up ok but still it was difficult. For this layout challenge found at Let's Scrap, I decided to use the middle portion of the layout.

Girlfriends & Silliness

Image
Found these cute pictures of my daughter at school with her friend during an Electronics Party. They were having so much fun sitting around playing games on Ipads, phones, tablets, etc.  They earned this party for something I can't remember ;) I loved their smiles so I figured it deserved a place in our album!
I used a sketch from Sketch n Scrap for this layout.
