Scrapbook all the memories!

Cuts2Luv & SpiegelMom Scraps Blog Hop

Hello everyone, I’m here today for a very special blog hop! The Sparklers and I are very excited to announce our product swap with the fabulous flair shop, Cuts2Luv!! We have been planning this for months and are super excited the day is finally here!! Caroline, from Cuts2Luv, is a total a sweetheart and her flair are wonderful, so be sure to check her shop out HERE.
For today, I’m sharing a layout I created based off a sketch that Jody, the SMS owner and amazing scrapbooker, designed. I used this sketch as my inspiration and this FREE SpiegelMom Scraps cut file to create all my snowflakes. You can find the cut file HERE and the sketch can be saved right from this post.I also used some CUTE flair badges I was given for this swap. You can find them HERE.
Below is my take on this sketch:
I decided to flip it just a little bit. I had this red background paper from a Michaels Recollections paper pad, but there was a journaling area in the bottom right hand corner that I didn’t want to use. My solution was to flip the sketch and cover it up with the blue snowflake paper. I LOVE how it looks flipped like this!
I received 4 cute flair badges from Cuts2Luv and used 3 of them on my layout. They were mostly snow/winter based, which was fitting with the sketch and the photo I wanted to use.
I actually only used one photo and stretched it over 3 frames to use like the sketch suggested. I really love how the black mat just makes the snow pop off the page!
I wanted to use some mixed media on some of the snowflakes so I pulled out my Snow Way Man Vibez, Gummy Berry Blue Dazzlerz, and Foiled Again Dazzlers. I also used the Cozy sequin Mix.
Look at that cute snowflake flair!! Isn’t it just perfect?! I love it!!
I had a so much fun combining the products from these two companies. They look so awesome together! I hope you enjoy what I’ve created for you today and enjoy the rest of the hop! Remember to leave comments on all the designers blogs to be entered to win a couple fabulous prizes from each company!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Now you’re off to Sandra’s blog. I know you’ll just love her project!
HERE IS THE LINE UP!!
You can also watch my process video HERE or below! I hope you have enjoyed this layout as much as I did!

Happy Saturday scrappy friends!! I hope you’re having a great January so far! I have my very last few pages in my December Daily to share with you today!

I just love this last couple of pages!! I had that cute little manila folder in with my December Daily kit and I’m so glad I remembered I had it!! I had a few pictures that I didn’t have enough pockets for so I stuck them inside this little folder.

I decorated the front very cute and simple and I LOVE it!!

This is how the inside turned out. I really love it! Watch the process video below to see the rest of the folder with the photos.

December Daily Week 4 (Days 18-24)

Hello and Happy New Year!! I can’t believe we got through December!! I hope you all have had a great new year so far! I am slowly getting things together with the new year and making new goals. I will hopefully have a post up next week dedicated to goals and resolutions for the new year.

Let’s jump right into the photos and videos for this weeks December Daily! I am so excited that I have completed the album and will get an album share up soon!

day18-1

I loved using big photos for quite a few pockets on this day 18. It was a fun day! We made cookies and went driving around town looking at Christmas lights. You can watch the video for days 18 & 19 here.

day19-1jpg

Day 19 is just one pocket page. I love this pretty snowflake paper and kept the page simple. You can find the video here.

day20-1

Days 20-22 are very simple and I was able to fit them all in one video together. I have fun making these simple pages with not so many photos. You can watch the process video here.

day21-1

I was so excited to finally use the cute little elf embellishments on day 21!! You can watch the process video here.

day23-1

I had a lot of photos and stories to tell on this day. I just embraced it! I like to see lots of photos in my album for december so it doesn’t bother me to do more work on the busier days. You can find the process video here.

day24-1

And lastly, here is day 24!! I love this spread and the photos from this day!! Christmas Eve is always so exciting!! I took some fun photos of the tree and stockings after Santa had come to our house and decided to include them on this day instead of the 25th because I knew I would have a TON of photos for that day!! You can find the process video here for this day.

I will be back in a couple days with the last day in my album and then a final album flip through! I hope you’re having a great week so far! Thanks for stopping by!!

December Daily Week 3 (Days 11-17)

Hello again and welcome back to another December daily post! I hope you’re not getting sick of them yet! lol Today I am sharing week 3 with you. I am finally getting caught up and I’m almost finished with the whole album now!!

day11-1

Day 11 was very simple and I love it!! You can watch the YouTube process video here.

day12-1

I also kept day 12 simple and just used one pocket page. The video link for this one is here with day 11 as well.

day1314-1

I loved working on days 13 and 14!! I didn’t want to include the journaling in the pocket pages because I had a lot of photos and I included both days in one pocket page. My solution was to make the journaling on a second page. I used a tabbed chipboard page and I love how it turned out! You can watch the process video here.

day15-1

Day 15 I only had a couple photos from my middle sons Cub Scout pack meeting so I just used one page for that. It turned out cute. You can watch the process video for days 15 & 16 here.

day16-1

Day 16 I had 5 pictures so I made a little insets for the last 2 photos to be stuck in. I really like that little addition to the album. You can watch the video for this layout on the link above.

day17-1

The last day of the week I had a lot to journal and many pictures. It had snowed the day before so the boys went out to play. It was a COLD day so I also added a photo of the temperature app from my phone. You can watch the process video here on my channel.

Hello again my scrapbooking friends!! I hope that you are enjoying keeping up with the month of December!! It is totally kickking my butt! Alas, I am here and trying to get caught up on my December Daily album. Today I’ll be sharing week number 2. I have a lot of pages to show you so I will just jump right in!

day4-1

Day 4 was a lot of fun to play around with and be creative! I made a couple sequin pockets with a mix from the SpiegelMom Scraps store called Holly Berries. This was the mix I made sure I had 3 packages of for my december daily album! I love it! You can watch the process video for this day here.

day5-1

I used a lot of photos on this day because the boys had a fun little Christmas activity night at school. You can watch the process video here.

day6-3

I used the back of a Starbucks paper bag for day 6. I really wanted to focus on the photos and journaling so I kept it simple. You can watch that process video here.

day7-1

For Day 7 I made this fun sequin page using ephemera from Starbucks. I made this layout for a SpiegelMom Scraps blog post so you can see more photos over there. You can also watch the process video on my channel here.

day8-1

For Days 8-10 I have one video up on YouTube that you can watch here. When I started scrapbooking these 3 days I kept the layouts a little more simple because I was really behind on my days. I like how I used less photos and did more journaling.

day8-5

December Daily 2016 Week 1 (Days 1-3)

Hello my scrappy friends!! I have decided to blog about my daily december layouts differently. I have been very busy and I’m getting sick so I am just going to focus on a weekly blog post. Here are the first 3 days in my album:

cover

This is the cover of my album. I really love how it turned out. I wanted to keep it really simple.

chevronintrochristmas1-2

I LOVE how my layout for Day 1 turned out. It was a good day for the most part. You can find the process video here on my YouTube Channel.

day2-1

Day 2 I kept to just one pocket page. It was a good day and I left this layout very simple. You can watch the process video here.

day3-1

I had so much fun making the spread for day 3!!! I think this is one of my favorite pages, at least so far!! You can watch the process video here.

day3-2

For this layout I did the journaling in a little 3×6 pocket page on the right side. I didn’t want to mess up the design of the layout with journaling so I decided to do my journaling on a different page. I love how it worked out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you’re all having a great December!

December Daily 2016 Day 2

Hello!! I am finally back with my day #2 page!! Sorry I didn’t get this up on the 3rd like I had hoped, but hey, we all get busy. I am a bit more behind on this December project than I wanted to be but I’m trying not to beat myself up too much about it.

Let’s jump right into the layout I made for this day!

day2-1

I had to use this pocket page with 2 3×4’s and a 4×6 so I printed off my photos really small and cut them up to fit in the 3 pockets.

day2-2

My husband and I met up for lunch so of course I had to document that!! He always likes to make funny smiley faces for me in photos. lol

day2-3

I had bought Christmas cereal and Brynnan wanted to photobomb the picture. Silly kid!

day2-4

I had to document this funny story about Tinian taking off his sock. Such a cutie!

Here’s the process video for you to watch below:

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you have a great one!

This is the sketch we used:

octobersketch

Here’s a closer look at my layout below:

octobersketch5

I used my summer kits from Citrus Twist Kit Club for this layout.

octobersketch4

I have been wondering how I would ever use this house ephemera piece and it worked perfect on this layout about my sisters and I hanging out in my grandma’s backyard playing by the swing.

octobersketch3

I used the Amy Tangerine ‘Alyx’ chipboard alpha and I LOVE how it looks on this layout!

octobersketch2

I love the simple look these tags give my date and journaling and that little cloud is just adorable!! octobersketch1
