Oh Scrap! New Layouts!!

I've been hoarding a bunch of scrapbook layouts, so I think it's time to share!!


This layout was made with 2 of my FAVORITE new patterns from Canvas Corp: Ivory & Orange Chevron and Ivory & Orange Tile. It also featured their Family Sampler that makes it super easy, fast and cheap to embellish your pages! (and as I look at this...I realize how crooked my picture is..UGH!!)

It's a Small World

These are some of my favorite peeps in like...the whole world! One is from South Africa, 2 are from Canada and 1 is from Utah (that can be another world, right!? LOL) I love the bright "wow" factor of Heidi Swapp's Color Pop Collection so much that I didn't even mist the paper to change up the yellow/white is fabulous in it's own! I love my glitter heart made using a chipboard shape, double sided tape and fine glitter and my yellow Amy Tangerine letter's for American Crafts are a perfect finishing touch!

You Can Never Have too Much Hair

I change my hair all the time and sadly enough... this is not the first layout I've done about my hair. I was challenged to incorporate chevrons into a layout and what better way than to just GO BIG with Canvas Corp Chevron papers! All I did was cute sections from the red, green and aqua turquoise papers and layer them on my black & white chevron, lining up the patterns. I added 3 of my favorite instagram selfies, the "you can never have too much" title I fussy cut from a Glitz Design paper and some American Crafts Thickers to complete my title.

Notre Dame Basilica

I did this layout a few years ago and it is still one of my favorites! It was my first time playing with Tattered Angels on a scrapbooking page. And as you can see...there's a surprise element! When combined with the Canvas Corp White on Kraft papers, the soy-based ink of the pattern actually acts as a resist and POPs through the Tattered Angels colors. It totally looks like I stamped the background with white ink! The pictures themselves are breathtaking, so I kept my embellishments to a minimum so the pics could get the attention.

Our Story is Perfect

This is my HOTTIE HUBBY and I being silly in the car one day. I bought this Echo Park collection (appropriately titled: Be Mine) super cheap from this little site called Part-Time Sally. It is a great store that is always having sales and is a good place to find older collections at a steal! The colors of the paper matched perfect with my black shirt and pink feather in my hair. I liked the idea of the flags so much after I did this one page layout that I scrap-lifted myself and stretched it into a 2-page layout I did for a class for Easter.

I hope my little layouts have inspired you to get scrappin'!

Until next time my friends...stay Creative!
