Birthday Scrapbook 2016 {Keaton}

My March is filled with one birthday celebration after another. In the course of 15 days both of my boys and my husband celebrate their birthdays. It’s a busy busy time! So when it comes time to start the craziness again, I always take a minute to reflect on last year’s celebration, and to update my boys’ birthday scrapbooks!

Have you ever wanted to put together a simple birthday scrapbook? With my class, Super Simple Celebration Scrapbooks I can show you how! #scrapbooking #birthday album

This year my youngest decided on a party at Main Event. They ate pizza, played laser tag and arcade games. To pay a bit of homage to the laser tag portion I used skinny washi tape on a black background. I love how it turned out!

Girl’s Weekend

This summer a few of my best college girlfriends met in Chicago for the weekend. It was so much fun chatting with these ladies, some of whom I hadn’t seen in almost 15 years! I loved every minute, and knew I had to document the photos.

It was a kit of sorts that she had created before starting her layout. But to me it was design inspiration all in itself!
  • Color Inspiration: Chicago is not near the ocean but it does have a beach. I thought the water and sand made perfect inspiration for my color palette.

I pulled pieces of blue paper to to mimic the look of waves and paired it with a nice neutral sheet the color of sand. Bits of gold accent brought the sand color over to the right side of the layout as well.

The title probably makes no sense to you, because it’s a bit of an inside joke. My college didn’t have fraternities or sororities, but each hall had a name. Our hall was called Shalom. And throughout our college years each of our functions started with “Shalom Does…”. So it only seemed fitting that this layout would follow the tradition. 🙂

So much fun with these ladies! I can’t wait to do it again!

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.
