Late Nite Scrappin'

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Yesterday I had the pleasure of a little late nite scrap session.  Yes, all by myself.  I surfed around a bit too. I feel like I am finally getting back on track.  My room is cleaned out, but I have a list of things I want to change in my room, Slowly but surely, I am making these changes, as well as saving time to scrap!

So, last night I was able to sit down and dive back into my pile of photos waiting to be scrapped.  I did two pages!  Both happen to have my younger son as the main subject.

Sometimes I am ok with a few photos on a page.  Most of the time though, I like to use 3 or more.  That's when can get confused and need some guidance. I print all of my photos in 4x6.  I know that can limit the amount on a single page.  I am just figuring out how to get the most out of iPhoto, so now I can print odd size photos at home!  The first LO I finished, I used One-Page Sketch #2 from Sketch Support.  I changed the orientation from horizontal to vertical and used multiple PPs.  The photos are fairly busy and not well focused on my son, so I left the embellishments to a minimum.  I stitched the stars in white, then outlined the centers in stickles.
CS is Bazzill, PP & journal tag are Echo Park, Ribbon-American Crafts, letter stickers are Pebbles and CosmoCricket. 

The second page I finished, I used a sketch from Again, I changed the orientation. I  omitted the border edge and in it's place put the border sticker.  The photos and PP were busy, so I also left out the third accent photo. The large gear overlapping the bottom of the right photo kind of takes its place.   The round accents really played into the title.  
PP and stickers are Kaiserkraft.  Letters are October Afternoon and American Crafts Thickers.


  1. I love it!! Fun products with the pictures. The theme of the products works great with mobility. Oh, I just love those sweet little faces, how precious. And the swapping of an "o" for a gear - wonderful :)

    On your first LO - great idea to add stickles to the insides of your star! Very reflective of the fourth of July celebration.

  2. I LOVE the "Get Around" layout! I hear the Beach Boys singing now :-)
    That gear border is adorable.

  3. I love your second layout!!!! And great journalling.
