Layout: Right Here

This layout happened for the sake of creating something. I needed some down time with my paper and pretties and haven't had a chance to print any recent photos. I grabbed a photo I adore and set off to just create something. 
Last week's Scraptastic challenge was to use shapes. I used a banner/fish tail shape and several circles as inspiration in the composition of this page.

Life in Details: December Challenge

This month'a challenge- ANYTHING GOES! I am using a pocketed page system to document this holiday season and I am hoping it will allow me to quickly slip in a photo or a journaling card and embellish as much as I have time for along the way! 
Amelia and I are creating handprint and footprint art to be included in my December album this year. I think they will be neat to look back on in the future. 

Make sure to come by the Life in Details blog and link up your projects! :) 

How are you documenting your December?

Layout: Upside Down Point of View

I finally got around to creating a layout for last week's Scraptastic sketch challenge: 

 I didn't follow the sketch exactly, but it is pretty close: 

I wanted to make the most of the Color blind kit and have teeny tiny scraps of patterned paper, two pieces of red cardstock and a few embellishments left. I am super happy with the final layout and  that there are not many items to store. I love when I can create layouts I love and move on to the next kit. 
Love the Ormolu flair! 
And the Ormolu cut apart tag that rounds out the title!

Layout: Happy Happy happy

I was inspired by the cut apart sheet from Carta Bella's Hello Again line. I love the pretty colors of this collection and used them to inspire the feeling of this layout.

Layout: This is Halloween 2012

This week's Scraptastic challenge is to hide an element. I started this layout right before Halloween, know, life happened. To finish the layout, I tucked some journaling in the bag using a spider as the pull tab. How halloweeny of me.

Life in Details: November Challenge.

The November challenge with Life in Details was to use these awesome printables created by Michelle Yuen. 
I loved using these printables to supplement my current pocket page supples. Using printables is a great way to supplement your stash and create new color combinations throughout your album.

Layout: Hello Creativity!

Have I told you lately how much I love the Scraptastic kits? 

This week I received my November kit- I chose the Colorblind kit: 

I love that Millie likes to color and draw already. Maybe we can continue to share crafty time together as she grows. ;)

Layout: The Smallest Things

The current challenge at the Scraptastic blog is to use a bunch of tags. I love the tags designed by Kaitlin Shaeffer (Ormolu) 

I love the bright colors against the muted cardstock. I have been trying to find the perfect colors to document this sweet moment captured of my brother and Millie and I feel this captures the warm feeling in my heart perfectly.

Life In Details : Challenge #1

The first Life In Details challenge is to use the following items to create a 4x6 card: 
* ribbon or washi tape

* flair
* bling
* chipboard or wood veneers
* 2 different patterned papers

Here is my card: 

 I used items from a couple of Scraptastic This Life Noted (PL) kits to create my card. I love how quickly my spreads come together when I use the fabulous Scraptastic kits with exclusive cards and flair by Ormolu! 

And my entire spread: 

Lately I have been loving the WRMK 4x4 pocket pages as I can print 9 Instagram photos, slip them in, and call it a day! It speeds up the process and saves having to change the size of my IG photos. 

How do you speed up the process of documenting everyday memories?

Layout: Be Filled With Wonder

This layout was a part of a recipe challenge from a scrappy pal. The challenge was to use strips of paper, then something hard/something soft,  something matte/something shiny, and something flat/something dimensional. The title also needed to be a quote or lyric. 
I love how this layout came out.

Layout: Lovely

It has been a long time since a bought paper and was too in love to make the first cut...but I am swooning over Hello Again by Carta Bella. I have made the first cut, and can't wait to make more!
The August Scraptastic kits are phenomenal. Seriously. This layout was inspired by the current challenge on the Scraptastic blog- draw with mist. 

All items except mist came from the Classy Girls kit + add on. 

 Thanks for looking!

Layout: Summer Food

My first garden. What a learning curve! I have really enjoyed the start to finish process of growing my own food. 

The Out on The Town kit and add on from Scraptastic Kit Cub have been fabulous for scrapping all sorts of summer pictures!

Layout: Hello Love

This layout was inspired by the YS Scrap Bingo Challenge.  I love this picture of Millie playing inside her toy bin. This was when standing and pulling up was brand new- seems like just a week ago- now she is off and running (when holding on to fingers or in her walker).
