My New Year's resolution is to get at least two layouts finished every week. And yesterday I got 4 done. On track so far then! I went shopping the other day and managed to get a huge amount of American Crafts scrapbook kits reduced to clear in TK Maxx. I was down in Lou's house yesterday for a bit of scrapping and got two layouts finished there and another two at home. The first layout is more or less the same as the example that was on the back of the kit. I just really liked the sentiment and the mix of papers.
I love this picture; it is of Ethan with his Nanny and Great Nanny. I kept this layout very simple as the papers are so "in your face" The papers and thickers are all from American Crafts and the tabs are from Colorbok.
This is an 8x8 layout. I am finding it a little hard to get used to the smaller size! Again papers, flair and chipboard shapes are AC. Foam letters are from Papermania and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.
Back to 12x12 again. The pictures are from a day at the beach. Ethan became fascinated with a crab he found! Cardstock, stickers, embellishments and papers are all from AC. Beginning to see a pattern here! The title is cut from a sticky back velvety type paper, using Tim Holtz' strip die Carnivale. It is harder to see in the picture but is a lot clearer IRL.
