World Conference 2016

Every three years our church holds a World Conference. It’s an amazing opportunity to gather with members from all over the world in shared moments of connection. This past conference was held in June so that meant my boys could go too. It was an awesome week and I had so many photos documenting our experience. How could I choose only a few to scrap?

  • Design Inspiration: I loved the look of this Disneyland layout by Paige Evans in her class Paige’s Pages | 10. That’s a whole lot of photos going on there! I knew the perfect story to tell using her layout as inspiration.
  • Color Inspiration: I wanted my layout to use lots of bright colors on a white background, similar to the inspiration layout. Really helped to make the colorful swirl of photos stand out!

I started out by printing my favorite photos from the event. But I printed them too small. So I printed them again at a larger size. But then I couldn’t get them all in. Haha! So I decided on a mix of large and small. One of the icons for our church is the spiral, so I mimicked that in the layout of my photos. To further accentuate the look I stitched a spiral with white embroidery floss. Took some time but I love how it turned out.

I loved all the bright colors that showed up in the photos of World Conference. I decided to use similar tones in the watercolors. It made for a very bright and happy layout!

To finish everything off I used white letter stickers and hand written journaling. I love that I was able to document so many photos and have creative fun at the same time!

I Live with Animals

My boys are older now so it’s been awhile since we went to the zoo. Which made it all the more fun to spend a Saturday with the animals as a family.

This layout came from her class Super Simple Scrapbooking Challenges. It’s a simple grid design with a few fun elements.
  • Color Inspiration: I liked the kraft paper as a backdrop for my colorful pictures. In this layout, I wanted to let the photos shine!

I think we spent more time posing in the animal cutouts than we did looking at the live animals. 🙂 Which made me laugh, and realize that I had to scrap those photos. I loved how the grid design highlighted each photo.

The fact that my boys had so much fun pretending to be animals gave me the idea for a fun title. As the only girl in a house full of boys sometimes I do feel like I’m living with animals!

Bike Every Single Day

When this boy decides to do something he does it ALL THE WAY! It took him awhile to get the biking thing down but once he got it he wanted to bike every single day.

Seemed like the perfect way to use up some green scraps!
  • Color Inspiration: When I decided on a color blocking layout I looked to my photo to help me decide what color to use. The green in the grass inspired my choices.

I received these large letters as a gift for my birthday last year but hadn’t found the right layout for them yet. This was the RIGHT layout! I love how they look.

I have had these adorable gears for awhile and this seemed like the perfect layout to use them on! Paired with a star and some enamel dots they made sweet little embellishment clusters. Swoon!
