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, Melt My Heart

I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash. I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)
I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

Scrapbooking, Sunshine

I love yellow pages.  They always make me so happy.  I made this for SWAT drill 16.  The layout sketch was a fun one to work with.  I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum.  At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was!  I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture.  This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression.  So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling. The twist for the drill was some twine.  I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.
