Elementary School Layout

Personal_Blog_Statement_2

I’m up on the Pebbles blog today with A Teacher layout using the Jen Hadfield Everyday collection. I’m here to share an update on the Elementary School Double-Page Layout I made earlier this school year using the Harvest collection by Pebbles.  Caitie ends her time in elementary school next week and I added her 5th grade photo to complete this layout.

I really enjoyed combining her First Day of School photos with her School Pictures.

I love that we can look back on these photos.  She has grown so much through the years.  When the time comes, I’ll make one for Payton, too.  You can see more photos of this double-page layout along with the step-by-step tutorial here.

Be Awesome Layout

 Happy National Scrapbook Day!

WELCOME TO THE
PEBBLES DESIGN TEAM BLOG HOP
AND GIVEAWAY!

NSD TEAM COLLAGE

(hope you hopped on over here from Becki’s blog)

My daughter recently celebrated her 10th birthday (she’s a whole decade now!) and I just had to scrap this favorite photo.  She asked for a birthday party with her friends and it was perfect that she turned “10” while bowling.  She had a blast and told me it was the Best.Birthday.Ever.  It makes my heart super happy to hear that she loved her party.  You know, she’s already an awesome 10-year-old.  We just want her 10th year to be an awesome one!  One that’s filled with fun, friends, family, and good health.

Here’s my layout!  I used the Jen Hadfield Cottage Living collection by Pebbles.

IMG_5413a

I absolutely love the golden shine of this color mist!

IMG_5414a

Layers, fussy cut flowers, golden leaves, and a purple (Caitie’s fave color) heat embossed title.  This “be awesome” stamp is just gorgeous!

IMG_5415a

Pretty Computer Font Time!  I used Caflisch Script Pro Light for the journaling on this page.  I printed the journaling onto a cut frame.  I sprinkled a few gold glittered butterfly stickers around the page.

I Adore You Layout

I have Valentine’s Day gifts that I made for all the girls’ teachers up on the Pebbles Blog today using the We Go Together collection.

Valentine Gifts for Teachers 10

I’d like to share this layout I made using items from the new Jen Hadfield Cottage Living collection by Pebbles.  Love this new line!  How pretty is the Sunrise, Sunset pattern paper I used for my background?!  I just love its ombre pink with hexagons design.  And, Payton’s favorite colors are dark pink and light pink…so this was perfect. 😀

I Adore You Layout 1

Since I don’t have a Silhouette machine 😦 , I decided that I could just make a heart to cut out using my computer.  It was quick and simple to do.  I like that.  I just opened the Microsoft Word 2013 program on my laptop.  I changed the PAGE LAYOUT to a 12″ x 12″ page.  INSERT a heart shape (No Shape Fill, Shape Outline set to large dashes, and Size of heart to 10″ x 10″).  Done!  Sure, I could’ve just hand-drawn a heart shape, but this is much prettier.

I Adore You Layout - Heart Template 1

I printed off my heart template on a piece of 12″ x 12″ white cardstock and cut it out.  Then, I lined it up centered on the pretty Hardwood pattern paper to cut out my heart.

I Adore You Layout - Heart Template 2

I love the pattern papers in this line and love the layering under this black and white photo of Payton.  I also love the new Jumbo Gold Paperclip.  I can never get enough of the pretty flowers and gold touches.

I Adore You Layout 2

I love the Puffy Phrase Stickers.  I used the “I adore you” Puffy Phrase Stickers for my title and a few hearts, flowers, and a “Hi” diamond shape to decorate around the page.

Happy November!

I’m so excited that I (along with a few of my fellow Pebbles Design Team Members) had another chance to participate and submit a page sample for Becky Fleck’s November 2014 PageMaps! If you find yourself stuck-in-a-rut, you have a creative block, you’re just staring at your photos to scrap and/or you’re just staring at your scrapbook products, then head on over to PageMaps by Becky Fleck and grab yourself a sketch.

The Two of You Layout

I made this layout using the Special Delivery Girl collection by Pebbles. This is one of my favorite photos of Caitie and Payton together after Payton came home from the hospital. Love the sweet bow overlay! It just frames my photo perfectly. I used a lot of heart punches on this layout because there’s a lot of love here.

The Two of You LO

Pretty Computer Font Time! I used Annie BTN for the journaling on this layout. It’s one of my faves. For the date, I used the large roller date stamp. How cute is that snail?!

The Two of You LO

Of course, I had to add flowers and sweet little birds. I also sprinkled some rub-on phrases and images around the photo.
