Scrapbook all the memories!

Scrap the Decade for Get It Scrapped


Hello and welcome back to my blog! I am up over on the Get it Scrapped blog today with some of the other fabulous Creative Team Members. Our assignement was to pick a decade and be inspired to scrap a page. I picked the 1980’s because, well, that was the decade I was born in.

I had also actually been thinking about a specific memory from that time, when I was about 2 or 3. Some of you might remember the Cabbage Patch Kid Dolls and how huge they were in the early to mid 80’s. My parents gave my sister and me a doll each and I vividly remember when my sister opened hers and what my dad said. Isn’t that crazy how there are little moments in life that stand out like that? I mean, I was 2 years old!!

Ok, so let’s move onto my layout:


When I first got this assignment I had immediately thought of the Wonder Collection, that’s a year or two years old. I had bought some of the papers and the alpha, but hadn’t used them yet. I was so excited to pull them out for this layout.


I found the photo in the top left in a pile of old photos my mom had sent me a few years ago. It was a Christmas picture, but not from the specific year we got the dolls. I was really excited to use it on this layout though because it does portray that it’s Christmas.


I then went to google, my trusty companion a lot of the time, and looked for images of Cabbage Patch Kids. I found the logo and this blonde haired doll and they were perfect!


I first started thinking I would title the layout something like ‘the 80’s’ or ‘a 1980’s Christmas’, but the more and more I thought about it I just really didn’t like them. I took to the internet to ask my scrappy friends and between two friends I came out with this title and I just love it!! ‘Proud Member of the Cabbage Patch Fad’, it’s so perfect!

Get It Scrapped Sketch #117

Hello my friends!! I am up on the Get it Scrapped blog today with a sketch layout. This one was taken from the Scrapbook Coach Class called Top Heavy. Come on over to the blog and get more inspiration from the creative team.

This is the sketch we used:


Here’s a closer look at my layout below:


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


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.


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


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

Get It Scrapped Layout Using Crayons in an Interesting Way

Hello Hello my friends! I am back with a Get It Scrapped layout today. I kept this layout really simple because I wanted the crayons to be the main focus, besides the photo.

For this assignment I was supposed to use Crayons on my layout in an interesting way. Immediately upon getting this assignment I thought of using the newish Tim Holtz Distress Crayons! I have heard so many things about them and have wanted to try them out, but just haven’t put an effort into buying them. I decided to do so finally and I absolutely LOVE them!! They’re so fun to play with! There are so many things you can do with them and I can’t wait to start using them more in my layouts.

Ok, let’s jump into the layout!


I decided to used the crayons as exactly that! I colored on the background paper directly behind my photos and that was good! I really love the texture it gives the layout.


I really liked this frame so I used it around the photo to bring your eye in to the photo first. The flowers in each of the corners help bring more interest to the layout.


I put more flowers in the bottom right corner of the picture as well.


And the title went in the bottom right corner. Mainly because I had a little mishap, which you can see what that was if you watch my process video below:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure to come on over to the Get It Scrapped blog today too to see what else I have to say about my layout!

Scrapbook Page Design Inspired by Board Games: We Love Pretend Chess

Hello my lovely followers! I hope you’re having a great day today! I am up on the Get It Scrapped blog today with a new layout. For this assignment we were challenged to use a board game as our inspiration. We didn’t necessarily have to have photos that went along with it, but it worked out that the photos I picked to use were from me playing a board game with Tinian, my 6 year old.


This is the layout I ended up making. Come on over to the Get It scrapped blog post to read more about the choices I made on the layout.


I also have a process video for you of how I made this layout. You can find that below or on my YouTube channel:
