December Pocket Album Pages

Happy December! Samantha here with you. Every December I create a pocket style mini album that I use to document all the fun we have during December. I love having all our memories in one place, and truthfully, if I didn’t do a quick pocket style album for December, it might never get scrapped. I love Christmas and pack in a lot of fun! Today I have the first few pages from my December pocket album. It’s not too late to start your own!

Supplies: Christmas Joy Tags, Christmas Joy Peace Joy and Love, Merry and Bright 3D Sticker, Christmas Magic Cardstock Multipack, Christmas Puffy Stickers

I like to keep my designs simple. Cut apart tags are a great way to fill empty space and add a pretty design element. Add a sticker or two right on top of your photos for an extra touch of personalization.

The best part of scrapping an album like this is that you can come back to add more if you’re creating a page about an activity that takes place throughout the season. For example, we watch Christmas movies and have special treats all December long. I still have space to add one more photo, and it’s really easy to pull out my journaling tag to add to the list of movies we watched and coordinating treats that we had.

You can even mix and match the sizes of your photos. I mix 4 x 6 pages in with my standard 6 x 8 photos. There are no rules here. The more you mix the textures of your embellishments and sizes of your photos, the more you’ll love your album.

How do you document your December?

Christmas Joy Scrapbook Layout

CarolynCircle2

Are you getting excited for Christmas?! I sure am! It’s Carolyn back today with a scrapbook layout using the Christmas Joy collection. There are so many fun stickers and pretty papers, this layout was easy to make.

merryandbrightPH

Supplies for Christmas Joy Layout: Christmas Memories 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Merry and Bright 3D Sticker, Christmas Magic Cardstock Multi Pack, Christmas Flake Stickers, Christmas Puffy Clips, Christmas Stick On Pockets, Peace Joy and Love 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook PaperChristmas Joy Tags 12″ Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper.

I began with these two pictures of super excited children eagerly awaiting their gifts. I really love the Christmas Memories paper so I used it as my background. I cut out the wreath with my Silhouette Cameo using the Peace Joy Love paper. Next I layered the stripe paper behind my photos. On the other side of the photos, I used the poinsettia stick on pockets. The holly leaf stick on pocket is perfect for holding one of my pictures.

Can you find the flake stickers on my layout? They blend in so perfectly, it is hard to tell they are not part of the pictures. The star on the tree, the Santa hat, the holly leaves and four of the presents are flake stickers.

To finish the layout I used a 3D title and pulled the puffy clip present off the clip to add dimension. There are also cardstock stickers for some sentiments, the date and star embellishments.

Make sure to stop by the Paper House Shop to pick-up some Christmas goodies! Have a wonderful, scrappy holiday season!

The washi is a favorite of mine because you can use it on all your pages to create harmony among them and it’s so economical. The gold foiling Merry Christmas washi is a perfect touch.

I left plenty of room so I can add in our memories through the month. I hope you enjoyed a look into my memory keeping and will give it a try.

Mixed Media with a Twist

Christine Circle 2Happy Halloween Eve – who’s ready to get spooking?  Our house is packed with excitement, but before I could take more pictures, I had to capture this memory from a couple years back!  As I sat looking at the Acetate Paper from the Wicked Good Collection, an idea came to my mind.  Join me as I show you how I incorporated it to do some Mixed Media with a Twist!

Supplies Used:  Cobwebs Acetate Paper, Halloween Flake Stickers, Trouble is Brewing Patterned Paper, Ghosts Patterned Paper

Wanna know more about what this Mixed Media with a Twist is?  Check out this video where I walk you thru creating this spooktacular layout!

This picture shows you close-up some of the details of this layout.

The bootiful Acetate Paper made the perfect canvas for adding mixed media to my layout and I will definitely be incorporating this technique in the future.  How about those green foil eyes on the spider?!? Too Much Fun!  And of course that fussy cut ghost – those really helped pull the whole layout together.

Happy Haunting Friends!

Fun with fussy cutting!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! 🙂 Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made! I used the “Paradise Found Florida” collection on my page! 🙂

 

As you can see above in the collection, one of the papers has Palm Trees on it — I fussy cut the palm trees from the paper and used it on my page to create part of my background 🙂 By fussy cutting the palm trees out from paper, I was able to have places throughout my page to tuck in my photo and other embellishments!

And even those these are the “Florida” papers, I easily used this collection for my photo that was taken in San Diego, California 🙂

Here’s a look at the title I designed. You can also see the fun Washi tape I used. I love that it has some shine to it.

I used a couple of the puffy stickers to dress up the photos.

Here’s a look at the fish I cut out and used some sequins to add a little fun. You can also see on the corner of the picture I used a little banner and another of the puffy stickers.

Here’s a closer look at the fun sign. I decorated it with some of the epoxy stickers. I used the moon and stars as it was some night time fishing that they did.

Here is a closer look at one of the big catches of the night…. a sting ray. Don’t worry, they didn’t hurt him. They had to reel him in so they could carefully get him untangled from the net and then they let him go. It was quite an amazing catch though.

Well that about covers it for today. Be sure to stop back by and check out what the rest of the super talented designers are up to! It is truly amazing how creative these gals are!

Until the next time, Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Making the paper work for you!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing a little tip on how to OVERCOME your fear of using certain papers!

If you are like me, you look at ‘photo’ background papers and get a little intimidated! If you add your photos to it, you will lose part of that background, or if you add them to certain parts of the paper, then you feel you are limited to what you can add!

31.jpg

I started out with these papers from the The Great Outdoors – Camping Collection – and while I LOVED that photo themed paper on the right, how was I going to add my things to it, without losing the depth of the paper!??! Well — I CUT OUT what I wanted from the paper of course!

30

Once you have fussy cut the paper, you can easily assemble your photos UNDERNEATH the cut out parts and keeping the integrity of the design!

35

Once you have your photo(s) in place and the piece that you cutout placed just right – you can adhere it and then finish your page!

So next time you are intimidated by photo background paper, just give this a try!
