What I did this weekend

Hello! I was ill the last few days, but was able to put together a few scrapbook pages. I decided to post these two because I really like how they came out.

These pictures were taken when my daughter was a baby, about 2 years ago. I'm looking up the date from the digital files of the pictures so I can write it on the little notebook paper on the second page.

If you're unfamiliar with scrapbooks, there's a lot of variety when it comes to styles and what people like to do with their pages. The general rule is to use acid-free paper and 'embellishments' (for instance, the paper and fabric flowers you see on my pages).

In these pages, I have used several different patterned papers, flowers, 'brads' (used to attach the flowers and the lace ribbon by punching through the paper), a paper doily cut in half, lace ribbon, and some card stock stickers to decorate the pictures. For me, it's a bit of an artistic/creative outlet that I enjoy. These two pages go side by side in an album and were designed to coordinate, called a two-page layout. The papers and stickers come from the same line (Simple Stories- Vintage Bliss), the rest of the items are a mix of different manufacturers and lines. I don't typically use coordinated paper (from a line), I tend to mix my own but these papers were my favorites and were just too perfect together,

    1. Thank you Tonya! The picture quality is so-so here thanks to it being just an ipod, so I do think it's much better in person lol. I really like doing these, it's a great way to just relieve some stress and get some creativity flowing.

  2. She was an adorable baby! I bet she loves to 'work' with her mama now. Creative stuff can be such a great stress reliever. Walks in nature also work for me. I try to walk my pup a lot right now. Take care!
