Scrapbook, Tulip Thoughts

OllieTulipThoughts1

Oh I've got a fun layout here!  I really wanted to try Scrap Our Stash's word challenge.  I had a great idea in my head that started as a single layout that changed two a double layout that ended up being a page and a half layout!  I used one of Bella Blvd's new Invisibles.  I really liked how it is fairly thick.  Much more sturdy than a transparency.  It really is going to add a cool layer to my little dude's scrapbook. So here is what I used for the challenge:
 
S-Stickers
T-Twine and Thickers
E-Enamel Dots
N-Numbers
C-Cork and Color
I-"Invisable"
L-Labels
 
When I started this layout is had eight photos on a 12x12, but it didn't leave me enough room for a title and journaling so I added another page.

The two pages gave me too much space so I thought I'll just make it a half a page and only add a few extra photos.  Now I don't have any half page page protectors around.  I ended up cutting up one of my 12x12 in half and sewing the side up.  Then I sewed the half onto the another 12x12 so I could get a seamless look when they are open and not have a gap.  It worked surprisingly well.  Now I know there are some seamless double page layout page protectors out there, but I'm not aware of any one and a half ones.

The numbers on my layout guide you to the number journaling.

It was a good way to use up all those numbers I have!

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, First Solo

I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last scrapbooked.  Well, I finally have been inspired to scrap again and I found a fun challenge with a very happy mood board that got my creative juices going again. Recently, my daughter got to dance her first solo on a stage.  I had only seen her dance this when she was first learning this.  She had a broken wrist at the time, so I never had seen some of the moves until she danced it on stage.  It had been over a year since she was on a stage and she has never been on one all by herself.  I wasn't sure how she was going to do.  I could tell she was getting nervous, but she did a beautiful job.  I was a very proud mommy.  =)  I really wanted to add one more picture, so I added this photo on a pull out tab.  I always enjoy the pages that have a little interactive part to them. While the paper I used for this layout was all new, all the embellishments are things that I have had for a long time.  I used some old stickers, wooden

Scrapbooking, Pumpkin Patch

  I loved how the water color background turned out for my son's page so much, that I had to try it again.  This time, I thought I would make a two page layout for my daughter's book since it has been a very long time since I've tried one.   I wanted to scrap these pumpkin patch pictures from last year because we were just about to go to the pumpkin patch again and I thought they would help me get into the fall mood.  I just love fall, but the weather in the pacific northwest is so unpredictable this time of year.  You never know if there is going to be a sunny day to go pumpkin picking so you have to take advantage of one when it comes!   Scrap Our Stash had their Tic Tac Toe challenge again, so I thought I would give it a go.  I went right down the center and did 3 buttons, decorative pins, and wood veneers.  I scattered buttons randomly onto the page.  I used up the little joy pin from Little Yellow Bicycle that I had laying around still.  I also added a li
