Family Love

It’s been awhile since we took a family picture. And I love how this one turned out! So I decided to spend some time scrapping our family love!

  • Design Inspiration: I love this layout by Jen Chapin in her class Start with a Sketch from Big Picture Classes. I was drawn to the wood veneer piece because I had a similar one that I’ve never been able to figure out how to use. Well today was the day!
  • Color Inspiration: I liked the neutral white background with pops of color from the inspiration layout. So I went with a similar look.

I had a 3×4 wood veneer card with a camera on it. I decided to punch it into a circle and use it at the top of the page. The punch didn’t come out completely clean and I had to trim it a bit with scissors but I still like how it looks! And the sprinkling of embellishments on the inspiration layout gave me permission to play with sequins. Love them!

To add more color I backed a few of the circles with pattern paper scraps. I love how it all turned out. With a bit of handwritten journaling my layout was complete! You can see how I used the We R Memory Keepers Laser Square to create straight journaling lines.

On Christmas Day I got an amazing surprise gift from my mother. She got me a We R Memory Keepers Laser Square (**affiliate link)! I had seen it on Facebook and shared about it, but I didn’t really expect to get it! I was a tad excited, as you can see.

My Review of the Laser Square and Mat

First let me say, I have not been asked to review this product. These are my own thoughts and experiences with the Laser Square and Mat.

I have always been a pretty linear scrapper. I like straight lines and grid designs. So I was pretty excited to give the Laser Square a try. It’s wonderful for lining up photos and creating a grid design. I also found it extremely useful for keeping my letter stickers straight when creating a title.

Without a doubt my favorite way to use this tool is to follow a straight line when adding my handwritten journaling. I spent many years typing my journaling because I wanted things perfectly straight. After awhile I got tired of that and started handwriting my journaling. But it would always bother me if things went a bit downhill as I wrote. Now they won’t! And I love it!

I haven’t found a ton of cons with this product. There are only a couple of things I can think of, one is that it takes two 9V batteries. Hopefully those will last awhile and won’t need regular replacement. The other is that it takes a bit of space on your scrap desk. That doesn’t really bother me, but may be an issue for some. Overall I really like this product and am so glad to add it to my scrapbooking tools!

Do you have a We R Memory Keepers Laser Square and Mat? Wanting one? I’m sure I’m not the only linear scrapper out there! 🙂

My Handsome Boys

When you have photos with the men in your life and everyone is all dolled up you simply have to scrapbook them. Not much of a story to go along with these pics. But sometimes the smiles are enough!

But sometimes the smiles are enough! #scrapbooking #layoutDesign Inspiration: Jen Gallacher’s class Product Playground: Washi Tape and Wood Veneer inspired me to grab my collection of both and use them on a layout.
  • Color Inspiration: I loved the sheet of arrow paper and have been wanting to use it for awhile. Since it coordinated with my photos I decided now was the time!

Washi tape, wood veneer and enamel dots…all my favorites in one place! *sigh*

This layout was simply fun to create. And we all need a bit of that in our lives!
