  • Design InsScrap Your Stash: Use Those Paper Scraps! #scrapbookingpiration: I loved the layers of paper in this adorable layout by NicoleS. I used similar design for paper and photo placement, and yet my layout looks quite different. Love how that happens!
  • Color Inspiration: I used the colors of my son’s hat to inspire the colors of the layout. Add in a bit of green and I had a color palette I loved!

With the exception of the red background paper, all of my papers came out of my scrap drawer. I love pulling together pattern paper groupings to accent my layout! To keep things cohesive I try to incorporate all the colors in each grouping.

The cherish paper strip had a list of numbers on it. Since it went with my colors I thought it would look nice in another embellishment cluster. I highlighted the 7 because that is how old my son is in the picture.

I just didn’t want to forget the time my little one named his hat Floppy. :) And this picture was too good not to use! There’s just nothing like scrapbooking an everyday life story!

Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Paparazzi Mama

Are you looking for scrapbook layout ideas? Today I’m sharing a layout my love of photography, and my kids’ dislike of my photo habit. My boys look at me like I’m a paparazzi mama. And most of the time the photos I get are full on blur as they dive out of the frame, or a hand to the camera.

  • Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Paparazzi Mama http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2lI #inspiration #scrapbookingDesign Inspiration: I loved the strip of patterned paper at the top and the vellum hearts at the bottom of this layout by Melanie Louette. I mixed mine up a bit by putting the color at the bottom and the white paper at the top.
  • Color Inspiration: Since my photo was black and white I was able to just play with whatever colors that suited my fancy. In this case, orange and gold!

I felt like there needed to be something to separate the orange paper and the white patterned paper. Perfect spot for some washi tape! Man, do I love that stuff.

I like creating a journaling block as an extension of the photo. The Project Life grid cards are my go to journaling spot.

December Daily 2014 {Day 21-24}

We are almost a month out from Christmas and I still haven’t shared the last week of December Daily. I finished most of my layouts awhile ago but still haven’t gotten around to finishing Christmas day. Since those photos are still on my big camera I decided to go ahead and share the rest of the week with you.

Day 21:

Every year my boys look forward to getting their videos from Santa. They wait with bated breath to see if they made it on the nice list. :) I just love seeing their reactions!

Day 22:

A group of friends from church went to carol to my Dad at the nursing home. It was such a nice way to honor the holiday with him.

Cookie making time! This year we tried a new recipe. All of us adored the Hot Chocolate cookies. I think Santa did too!

One of my favorite moments of the holidays is singing Silent Night by candle light on Christmas Eve. That truly is the reason for the season!
