Traditional Scrapbook layouts

Love is a four legged word

Standard

Chloe lost her Grandma just the other day and I know how hard this will be for her. My mother-in-law was an awesome lady. She was an amazing mom, grandma, and dog-grandma. When she first met Chloe she wasn’t much of a dog person. Chloe won her over pretty quickly and the two of them shared an incredible bond! She will be missed so much by all of us.

Books That Inspire Me

What inspires you? Books have always been a huge source of inspiration for me. Tell me a book you think needs to be on my list. —————

Abe & Dinah

Standard

Today I was challenged to create a heritage page. I decided to design a layout showcasing the only “formal” photo I have of my great grandparents who emigrated from Russia in the early 1900s. I am really happy with how the page turned out and may continue designing more heritage pages in the near future!

Sunday Brunch

Standard

When asked to scrap about something mundane that I do, feeding the family came to mind — specifically, Sunday breakfast. Most of the time my family doesn’t eat breakfast together – we all grab something: an egg, a cup of coffee, some cereal, or maybe just a banana. On weekends, for as long as I can remember, we’ve gone out for Sunday brunch. Covid-19 changed that and we were stuck home eating anything that was easy to grab like any other day of the week.  At some point I “flipped the switch” and decided to be more grateful for my wonderful kitchen and the fact that I had my entire family with me.  I thought about ways I could make Sunday brunch enjoyable again. I just needed to change my mindset.  Now waking up early and baking the family a nice brunch has become something I really enjoy and look forward to as much as they enjoy eating it. 

For the technique I used basic colored cardstock and added some textures to it.

Sweet

Standard

My layout today is all about my beloved dog, Chloe, who means the world to me. There are so many words I could’ve used to describe her but wanted to limit this to a one page layout. She really is the best dog ever!

Life Right Now

Standard

It’s easy to scrapbook older photos and events when I create my page layouts. Now and then I am challenged to create a page that’s more of a “slice of life” moment describing things in real time. This is one of those pages that focuses, specifically, on where I am in life right now.

Crafters in Crime

Standard

As you probably know (or can easily guess) I am obsessed with crafts and have been since I was little. What you may not know is that my best friend since high school is as craft-crazed as I am! Luckily for me we have had the opportunity to take many craft classes together over the years. This page is just a nod to some of our projects! As you can see we have done everything from lamp making, jewelry design, hand knitting, painting, altered art, scrapbooking, etc. If it’s a cool craft you can assume we have either done it or hope to take a class in the future!

My Favorite Children’s Book

Standard

Today’s layout challenge had me thinking about a favorite childhood book and the lessons learned from it. Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak was one story I treasured and read countless times. When my sons were little it was also one of their favorites! It is a children’s story but the lessons work for adults as well.
