Artbooking Layout Series – School 1

Baby Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Outdoor Denim, Smokey Plum, and Cotton Candy), and Colorbok Gems.

This overlay from the School Layout button makes it very quick and easy to scrap a page of 4×6 photos (trimmed down a little).  I added the heart border from page 58 (overlapped the center heart for continuity) and I was done!

The September 2011 Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is GRIDS.  At first I was stumped but then remembered that I have been wanting to do some weaving and I came upon a sketch that got my mojo going.  This layout is loosely based on this Scrapbook Generation sketch.  I changed up the photos and turned it into a one-page layout.

I created my grid by simply weaving paper together.  I cheated and used the Sunset as my base, cutting it part of the way across and leaving together on one end.  I didn’t even measure because I knew the odd cuts would be hidden under my photo.  After loosely weaving in the white stripes, I lined them up with the outer edge and worked towards the inside.

Another 10 Year Album

When I found out the theme for the August Scrap Our Stash Challenge was to “re-do” something I thought I was in trouble.  I am not one to go back and redo any of my layouts.  I’m just glad they got done in the first place!  Plus, it’s interesting to see how my scrapping style has changed over the years.  It’s also funny to hear compliments for some of the layouts that I don’t really care for; we all have different tastes.  So back to the challenge….my second child turned 10 this year and this ended up to be the perfect opportunity to get something completed in a timely manner.  For my first, I had created a 10-Years of You album that featured a photo of her each of her 10 years.  So I decided to “redo” that same project for my second 10-year-old.  Let me tell you it was much easier the second time around!  I simply used the same album and layouts, choosing different papers and embellishments to suit a different personality.  The only trouble I had was that I stamped all the numbers and did the album backwards and when it came to doing the title it did not match my front cover paper.  Not a big deal to switch it up and I even used a number 3 in place of a the letter E.  The cover paper did just happen to have a nice lace/ribbon border that looked great on the front cover.  Here is the outcome:

 

Supplies used: CTMH All-Sorts Mini Album, DCWV patterned papers (stack), CTMH White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Mark Richards Crystal Stickers, EK Success Precious Finds Adhesive Gems, Colorbok Gems Adhesive Accents, Miss Elizabeth Foam Letter Stickers, Basic Grey Bling It, and rhinestone border and ribbon from my stash.
