Scrapbooking! (part two)

I had fun putting this first page together and I have to say it's one of my favorites. It has something to do with the last photo! Again, the paper is My Mind's Eye "Penny Lane." The pink cardstock is Fiskars. The cloth flowers were blog candy I won and the brads attaching them to the paper are Paper Studio. If you click on the picture and see it full size, you just might make out the glittery accents.

The "Silly Monkey" paper is also Paper Studio open stock, the polka dot ribbon is also from Paper Studio.

Last Saturday, as previously mentioned, I attended the 4th Annual MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Scrapbooking Luau. This was the second one I attended and again, I really enjoyed it. It is so nice to be able to sit and scrapbook and chat with other like-minded individuals without the constant interruptions of home. And no, I am not a mother of a preschooler. My kiddies are just either side of 30.

This year's project for me was to take photos my older daughter had selected for her album and put some in a scrapbook for her. I did 15 pages! Well, not totally as some titles and journaling was left off in favor of getting the pages constructed. Today I will share with you the first two pages.

The first page introduces our older daughter and the paper used was some Paper Studio miscellaneous packs and My Mind's Eye "Penny Lane." For the life of me, I am drawing a blank on where I got the SVG file for Daughter, but I really like how it turned out. The Penny Lane is card stock and glittery, so I am sure I am going to need to put a new blade in my Cricut for it.

The second page also used paper from Penny Lane, that and some shapes cut on my Cricut. 

I did experiment on further pages, sometimes using part of a 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and sometimes using 8.5 x 11 paper. I do the scrapbooks in letter size format, which I prefer. To me the 12 x 12 books are just too big!

Stay Tuned

Yesterday I attended the 4th annual Scrapbooking Luau held at a local church. It ran from 9 am until 8 p.m. I did sixteen pages, some of which need a bit of tweaking as in titles and journaling. Stay tuned and I will post pictures, I promise.
