First Class Dining and Show Time

Hi there!

Today I am sharing the last two pages that I made for International Scrapbook Day, using the  Paper Issues Challenges.

This first page was for the Pretty Patterned Paper challenge where only pattered paper could be used on the page.


Most of the supplies on this page are from the Shimelle Go Now Go collection, except for a the "First Class" 3x4 card, the camera die cut and the yellow star paper which are from Pink Paislee's Atlas collection. This page isn't overly fancy, but with that busy background page, I wanted to stick to a basic design.  That "delish" flair is a VERY old American Crafts piece.  I love it when I can use old stash on a page and it all works.

This next page was supposed to be for the Black and White + One which was to use black and white supplies plus one other colour. 


I started out the page thinking I would use white, black and gold.  But, I had a crazy weekend and could not get the page done it time for the challenge submission.  Since the photos were so red, I felt like the page needed a bit of pink and red to tie it together.  It doesn't show well in the photo, but the star wreath is shiny gold paper that I cut from a Paper Issues cut file.  It does look much better in real life. ;)

Thanks for looking!

M&M Store Hijinx

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a layout I made during International Scrapbook Day with the help of the challenges over at Paper Issues.

This challenge was to use Ampersand, Alphabet and Arrows on a page.  Considering the subject of my page, I was already a third of the way there! ;)


Most of the supplies for this page are from Shimelle's Go Now Go collection.  The Vegas album is almost finished and there are only a few pieces of paper left in my stash.  I have used almost all of the embellishments from the stickers and ephemera packs.  I wanted some of the flowers for my embellishments, but I had used them all up on previous pages.  That is my only complaint about Shimelle's collections - never enough flowers! So, I checked out the ACDigitals site and purchased a couple embellishment packs and printed my own. Now I can print out as many flowers as I want!

Thanks for looking!

Out and About

Hi there!

I have a quick blog post today, sharing a 12x12 page and pocket page spread from my Vegas album.  Well, it's sort of a pocket page.  This is the last set of photos that I wanted to use in pockets.  I knew the following layout would be a full page so, I scrapped my photos as if it would be a pocket page, but then adhered them to a 12x12 piece of cardstock.



There are no fancy techniques here, other than the fact that I used the backside of a very old single sided piece of patterned paper for the pocket style page.  Since you see so little of  the paper, I didn't want to waste a full piece of good cardstock. I was able to cover up the branding information on the page with a photo and no one would ever tell it's the backside. If anyone remembers Arctic Frog, this is the back of one of their papers.  ;)

I am trying to use up all of Shimelle's Go Now Go collection before I finish the album, since I'm itching to start the next travel album and this collection won't work. I don't have much left, so it's starting to be a challenge all on it's own.

Thanks for looking!
