But, because I had almost two weeks off from work, I did manage to get some scrapping done during the holidays. And so without further ado, here they are.
If you regularly read my blog, you know that I am a huge fan of Shimelle Laine's. I've taken a few of her online classes and have followed her work on Two Peas in a Bucket. In 2011, she did a video series "4x6 Photo Love" where every month, she would provide an example of how to scrap a certain number of photos per month. ie/ March had 3 photos, April had 4 photos, etc. So, as it would come to pass (heehee) December would be a layout with 12 - 4x6 photos. Here is my take.
I thought the way she suspended her photos from a ribbon was the perfect way to showcase my ziplining photos. Her sketch was for twelve photos, but I managed to squeeze in thirteen in by cropping a couple. Here is the layout front:
And here is the layout with the photos open. (and a bonus shot of my kitchen floor LOL!)
Papers and Stickers: My Mind's Eye, Echo Park; Chipboard Flowers: Sassafras Lass; Alphas: American Crafts Thickers, Cricut & SCAL; Miscellaneous: Provo Craft Eyelets, String, Stick Pins; Studio Calico Stamps
I will cut the page protector a bit to allow the photos to sit on top so that the photos can be flipped through.
This one is a page about how Nick peer pressured his dad into jumping off a cliff. Something Brian wouldn't do on his own, but Nick basically harassed him into it. Gotta love those father/son relationships. ;)
Papers: Fancy Pants Design and Bazzill Basics; Stickers: Fancy Pants, Simple Stories; Alphas: Pink Paislee, Basic Grey, American Crafts Thickers; Misc: Making Memories Buttons, Floss
And here is a page for Julia. She fell in love with these little creatures at Xelha. They are coati. Basically a racoon type animal. They were EVERYWHERE in Xelha and Julia wanted to catch some and bring them home.
Papers: Fancy Pants Design, Canson; Brads: Fancy Pants; Alphas: American Crafts Thickers; Leaves: Cricut & SCAL; Misc: Twine, Uniball White Gel Pen.
Thanks so much for looking. I really appreciate all the kind words and comments.
From our house to yours, may your year be filled with health and happiness. Happy New Year!
