Your life is a story …. scrapbook it!

Dear Santa

Today’s layout includes the following:

  • Some old designer paper I’ve had forever
  • Some border stickers I picked up at Joann’s a long time ago that were marked way down
  • A current CM Christmas sticker

Once again, it sure is great to use up old stuff!  Thank you for looking today.  🙂

Chris Mouse

Today’s layout is another from the online sketch class I’m taking.  I collected Chris Mouse Hallmark ornaments for as long as they made them – because my son’s name is Chris – so I decided to scrap some of the collection.  Here’s what I used to make this layout:

  1. CM discontinued Christmas paper
  2. CM discontinued Christmas Open House border strips
  3. CM discontinued Christas stickers
  4. CM current Noel ABC stickers
  5. red ribbon

It is SO nice to use up some old stash that I’ve had, it seems, forever!  Thank you for looking today.  🙂

Today’s layout is from an online sketch class I’m taking.  I used CM’s border maker and its newest cartridge to go with it – the hexagon.  I was able to get lots of pics in this 2-page spread, which made me very happy.  Thank you for looking!

Radio City Christmas

I had some 8×8 designer paper left over from an 8×8 album project I had done; so I decided to layer it on top of a designer print on my 12×12 page, and try not to let it bother me!  LOL.  (I needed to talk myself into believing this page looked OK.)  I used the custom cutting sytem to cut out the picture of my gorgeous nieces; used a LSS punch on the ivory designer paper; added a couple other pics; and added some stickers; and said good enough!

Christmas Spectacular in NYC

I did things a little different in this layout.  I layered bazzill cardstock, red and green, any-which-way, and although not a favorite of mine, I was happy enough with the result.  I also used the tearing tool and drew some squiggles with my silver pen.  I used vellum to describe the scenes.  This is one of those layouts where the pictures definitely outshine the layout, and that is perfectly AOK with me.
