Happy Holiday

The layout above is all about crafting with friends.  I use to do lunch Make-n-Take’s with my coworkers and they loved it.  We laughed and they learned how to create cards, boxes, ornaments, etc.  They really treasured our time together.  I love sharing my love of crafting with them.

My duties at worked changed so these lunch Make-n-Take’s dwelled away.  Looking back on these photos allow me to be grateful for these moments with my friends.

Here’s how to create this page:

Using the PenBlade 15, cut some of the rose and the leaf so that the photo can rest behind them for dimension.

Then rounded all four corners of each photo.  Add some adhesive behind the photo and adhere them to the page behind the cut outs.

After that, cut a small piece of pattern paper. Adhere it to the top left hand corner of the layout by adding tape to the bottom right corner of that piece.

Then pull the top layer corner down about an inch and pin it down by placing a charm and a brad.

To add the title, use the puffy stickers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and run the title around the top of the photos.

To finish off the layout, using stamps from Altenew Pattern Play- Circle stamp set, Altenew Happy Holidays stamp set and Altenew Moments in Time stamp set to add a couple of sentiments to the bottom of the layout with the Memory MISTI.

Scrapbooking Again

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to share a scrapbook page I created using Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Would you believe me if I told you I started crafting by creating scrapbook pages for my son.  I stopped a long time ago. I was introduced to some may different types of crafts that I slowly walked away from scrapbooking.

Last year, I started scrapbooking again by doing pocket pages.  Those are easy and fun but I missed the actually scrapbook page that I use to create.  So I decided to try my hand at it again.

Lets take a look:

I recently visited my nephew’s and had a blast with them.  My youngest nephew is 5 years old and he is quite the explorer.  He loves nature and everything it has to offer.  We went out to eat and while waiting to be seated he spotted a tree outside and he had to climb it.

I was so happy that my camera was ready.  I captured him looking out beyond the leaves and knew this would be a perfect shot.

Altenew is running their second sketch challenge and I figured I could join in on the fun.

Take a look at the sketch:

To create my page, I used my Brother ScanNCut Canvas online to create a heart.  I downloaded it to the ScanNCut and used it to cut out the heart from one of Altenew Scrapbook pages.

Then I adhered the heart to the white background using Tombow Permanent Mono adhesive.  I added dash lines around the heart to add dimension.

After that I picked out different embellishments to go with the theme of my page.  I placed them according to the sketch.

Let take a closer look:

I love how the embellishments are all color coordinated.

Adding thread, adds an extra layer of texture to this layout.  Super simple but effective.

So what do you think?  Did I follow the sketch? I would love to hear from you.
