Scrapbooking, S is for Swing

SisforSwing1
 
Hi everybody!  A few years ago, I made a page for my daughter called B is for.  It had different things B could be like beautiful and bellybutton.  Well, I decided to try another page like that.  This time it was for the letter S.

It's a fun page with a little bit of interaction.  I know it looks a little wonkey in the picture, but it really is straight in real life.  Of course, I made this page for the Memory Nest Make it Monday.  I went with the interactive page with a flap to add my extra photo because I felt adding a photo another way kind of lost the spirit of the sketch and I really wanted to include both photos.

It was fun trying to find a few embellishments in my stash that started with the letter S.  Of course I had lots and lots of stars!  The bunny is really random.  A fun Japanese dollar store opened up by me and they have lots of fun paper bits!  That's where the bunny comes from.  He might make a few appearances on a few of my pages.

I found this stick together sticker and had to use it!  Perfect for how my daughter and her teddy bear are always together!

  1. This is just a sweet and fun page Saskia! I love the little embellishment cluster and the wooden stars on the corner of the photo. But the stitched title is my favourite, I really must do more of that on my pages! TFS. xx

  2. Such a super idea to go with S is for - may just have to try this myself. Love the stitched word and the multi photo surprise!

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
