National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!

Happy National Scrapbook Day! I’m blog hopping!

SCRAPBOOK (8)

I’d like to share a page I made, remarkably enough, about cookies! I made this for my guest designer gig at Clearsnap, and today is a great day to share it! All the details and a tutorial are on the Cookies, a Love Story Clearsnap blog post.

And now the hop deets:

Happy National Scrapbook Day 2015!! Chances are, if you are reading this blog you love to scrapbook. Today, scrapbooking takes on many different forms from the traditional 12×12 layouts to smaller formats like 8.5 x 11, 6×6 and the ever growing popular pocket scrapbooking. Whichever form you prefer, we are all story tellers and love to preserve our family memories for generations to come. That is why I love that we take out the first Saturday each May to celebrate this wonderful hobby.

As you hang out at crops at your Local Scrapbooking Store or perhaps just have a group of friends over for an in home crop, we have a wonderful hop here to inspire you as you pull out your pictures, papers, embellishments and the ever important adhesive to hold all these together and tell your stories! We have a great group of bloggers and scrapbookers just like you joining us today so I hope you will take a moment to visit each one.

We also have two amazing sponsors for this blog hop:

Prom Time!

I’m up on the Crafty Power Blog today, this time with a Prom layout. Its hard to believe my Spunky graduated last weekend…more on that later. Here is the layout from Prom:

He’s quite the comedian, and yes, he did pose for the outtake photos, and a lot more. It’s not often we get to dress them up…

It’s Football Season!

Welcome to the season! I was flipping through some photos of my son from his glory days playing middle school football.

The papers are a mixture of Jillibean Soup’s collections, I love how things coordinate between the kits.

Hidden journaling works on a page like this – I think it’s important to have the handwritten words along with the story ‘behind’ the photos.

Simple stuff, like photo corners, can draw attention to the photos amidst the  colors and patterns. Dimension from 3D Foam Squares helps to break up the page and add interest. I used them under the blue matted photo, the football embellishment, and at the top section.

Thanks for stopping today, and enjoy the game!

Supplies used:

Play Ball Scrapbook Page

Living with the hubs and 2 boys influences my crafting in that I tend to gravitate to deeper, darker, more saturated colors. I just don’t have a lot of applications for pastels. I am thrilled to work with the Websters Pages Game On kit!

We go to A LOT of baseball games, so I scrapped a few pictures of  a Chicago Cubs game. We always get there early to watch batting practice, get autographs and walk around (hence the empty seats in the background).

I used layers of 3D Foam Squares to make the street signs more dimensional, you can see how I did it on the full post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ blog.

I used these supplies:

Puppy Love

Sharing one of my favorite photos today. This is Spunky, as a baby, he couldn’t even sit up by himself. I was trying to take a cute photo – I even used real black and white film!  Anyway, Buster had to come over and see what was going on. He was sooooo good with the boys!

Strawberry Bread Page

Good Morning!  Just wanted to show the Strawberry Bread page I made for the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Blog yesterday.  You can click through to see the rest close up photos.

3D Foam Squares pop up the strawberries, banner and seed packet.  A Photo CD Pocket holds the recipe, and there is still space to add a CD of her scanned handwritten recipes.

The photo is my grandma,  circa late 1930’s I think.

I love that most of her recipes are hand written.  Oleo is butter or margarine, if you want to make the bread.

SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L: 3D Foam Squares, Photo CD Pockets, MyStik™ Permanent adhesives
Spellbinders Paper Arts: Grand Calibur™ machine, S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand, LF-161 Grand Labels One, S4-046 Banner Basics Three
