First 2 of the New Year…

Hi there!

So, here are the first two layouts I completed of the New Year!

For the first one, I followed a sketch over at Stuck?!Sketches.  You can find the sketch here. I always find their sketches VERY inspiring!

I used my new “Classic Christmas” collection from Simple Stories for this layout.


I fussy cut a couple of Poinsettia and leaves and popped one Poinsettia up for extra dimension.  I also added some Stickles to the centers of them.dscn4126

And for 2017 I’m going to try and journal a bit more on my pages – tell more of the story.


For my second layout I joined in a challenge over at the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group.  TONS of inspiration and fun challenges!  You really should head over and ask to join!

This layout is for the “Roll the Dice” challenge and you had to use 5 photos and 4 different types of alphas on your page.dscn4107I used up the last of my Simple Stories “Hello Fall” papers (I might have a few scraps left that I won’t part with yet! LOL) along with some papers from the Shimelle “Go Now Go” collection I picked up at the Paper Issues store and a little Echo Park “I Love Family”.dscn4112The chipboard word “fun” is from Creative Embellishments.  I just ordered a bunch of chipboard words from them! My new favourite thing I think! 😉dscn4116And I found some flair from “A Flair for Buttons” that worked perfectly on this page.

Well, I have a few errands I have to run today, but when I get back I’m going to sit down and scrapbook some more! Paper Issues has a new challenge on their blog today that encourages you to use your stash!! Who doesn’t have old stuff to use up??  😀

Happy scrapping!
