Make a Page Monday: Week 14

This weeks Make a page Monday layout was created with Creashens new Night Owl Kit:


I have SO many photos of Aiden from his first year of t-ball and have yet to get them off the computer. So this was a fun layout to put together as I went through the photos! The washi tape frames are pretty much the best thing ever...oh and the owl are pretty darn cute too!!

Soon I will get all of his t-ball photos into a shutterfly book, as I do with all of my boys sports photos. One album for each boy, for each sport season. It is becoming a fun library of books :D

I hope everyone had a lovely Mothers Day with the ones they love! My boys spoiled me when I got home from work and let me relax for the night, it was wonderful! To celebrate mothers day I created this layout with Mye De Leons new kit You're the Mom:


Being a momma has truly changed my life in every way for the better and I loved looking back at the photos and memories we shared throughout this journey together :)

Make A Page Monday - Week 11

Today s Make a Page Monday layout documents just a few of my favorite things right now! I love creating these layouts about the here and now, to give a snippet of what makes up me at this given moment in time. They are always so fun to look back at years later! To create this layout I used Creashens new kit: In My Bag and Project Twenty Fifteen (Vol. 3) templates ( a recent favorite, love the stitching that comes on these templates!!)


A grid based layout is my go-to design when working with multiple photos on one page. it separates each photo as its own yet keeps the look clean and cohesive. The stitching ties the whole layout together :)

Make A Page Monday - Week 10

This weeks layout was created with the oh so fabulous new kit Party-Animals by Scotty Girl Design & Mari Koegelenber Creations! I also used Scotty Girl Designs stitched grid templates Vol 2 to lay the whole page out! The balloon animal paper is pretty much my most favorite thing ever...


This kit is stunning:


and one I will most definitely use again and again :)

Make A Page Monday - Week 9

Last year I took quite a few "from where I stand" photos of my daily life and shared them on Instagram. I knew I wanted to do something with them, but wasn't really sure what. Today I can say the majority of the photos have finally found a home:


I just love the results and it has inspired me to start taking more photos of where I stand in our day to day life & wear more cute shoes ;)

Project Life 2015 : March

Another month of 2015 has come and gone, so that means there are all new pages to share of our 2015 Project Life album!

March was a busy month full of basketball games, the beginnings of our house hunting, time spent in the snow, and the first peeks of spring like weather!! March is always a month of hope and new beginnings as winter fades away and spring begins to show its face. I wanted my pages to be fun and cheery so I used the dazzle mini kit (in the project life app) to create my title cards :)

Happy Friday!!

I am super excited about this new scrappy opportunity:


I have joined The Digital Press CT as one of the new Pocket Page Artists!! I am super pumped to work with all the amazing designers at The Digital Press and can not wait to get busy recording our family memories with their awesome kits!! To jump right in I created two new pocket page layouts with two of the new releases this week!

One double page spread using Crazy Cat Lady Cards by Mommyish:



 and one page documenting our Potter Park Zoo trip last year using Project Twenty Fifteen | April by Laura Passage:

Make a Page Monday - Week 8

This weeks page uses some throwback photos of Drew from his first day of 3rd grade, gosh how the time flies!! I used Scotty Girl Designs Brainiac Collection to put the layout together and am smitten with the results! The colors of her kit were perfect for these photos and showcase just how fun the first day of 3rd grade is:

Make A Page Monday | Week 7

This weeks Make A Page Monday layout was created with the March Subscription kit at Pixels and Company using one of the Sketchbook Saturday sketches at Write.Click.Scrapbook:
 

As soon as I saw the hexagon shapes in this months subscription kit, I knew I had to use them some way on a layout! They were perfect to use with this simple sketch. It was a fun way to add a little bit more dimension to the layout without taking away from the photos!

Make A Page Monday | Week 6

This weeks layout is a simple grid based layout. I love the clean graphic look of grid based layouts, if you haven't noticed ;) I use them a lot to gather multiple photos taken at different periods of time, that may not go together cohesively. The grid and a simple frame helps tie the design together, even when the photos don't exactly match each other!



This particular layout was created for Scotty Girl Designs Old Dog New Tricks Blog Feature. I wanted to scrapbook all of the family photos we took together in 2014, and these two camera kits (F-stop kit & Snapshots kit) were just perfect to work with! I repeated the polaroid card 12 times and cropped 10 different photo on top of the cards. I also cropped a journaling card to fit on top of the last polaroid, to add a little bit more variation and color to the layout. A few simple embellishments and this one was done and in the books!

Make A Page Monday | Week 5

Hello and welcome to week 5 of my make a page Monday feature here on the blog :)


This weeks layout was created with the March Pixels and Company Subscription kit: Celebrate
 

It is such an awesome collection! I will definitely be making a lot of layouts this month using it, beware ;) My boys birthdays are within 5 weeks of each other, so I tend to get behind on all of the birthday photos/scrapbook pages I want to create. This kit will give me a chance to get caught up on a few of them! 

This weeks Make a page Monday layout is a scraplift of this layout by Kelly Noel:

I just love her clean design and the way the photos take center stage! Pretty much everything Kelly creates is stunning :)

The March Freebie Template is also based on this wonderful layout!  You can click on the photo below or download it here!

Make A Page Monday | Week 4

This weeks Make a Page Monday Layout is a two page spread using DDE new Mad Crush Bundle. This kit was perfect to document our weekend getaway up north last winter. I used one of Gennifer Bursett's Pocket Pages : Back to Basics v1 to pull together all the photos I wanted to use. I took a lot of photos on this trip and will hopefully make a mini book of our trip soon. For now these pages showcase the highlights of the trip. The Mighty Mac, hiking to the Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls, snowshoeing to White Fish Point and out onto a very frozen Lake Superior. It was an awesome trip, an item checked off my MI bucket list (seeing the UP in the winter), and a breathtaking winter wonderland. I can't wait to go back :)
 
and a close up of each page:



Thanks for taking a peek! Until next time, Happy Scrapping :D

Make a page Monday | Week 3

Today I am sharing a page I created this week with Scotty Girl Designs This Life Papers | Elements | Brushes all of which are a part of the month long Pennysaver sale at The Digital Press! This year I plan to do more to record bits and pieces of my boys and who they are right now. They are all growing up so quickly and the things they are into changes on a day to day basis. I hope by doing more of these "you right now" pages will help to capture who they really are! This week I created a page of my oldest, who is now a teenager and 100% pure boy!


 I am also sharing a link to a free template based on this layout!I hope you enjoy it and maybe create a "you right now" page of your very own!
